THE ARMY AND VOLUNTEERS. (FROM THE TIMES 19TH JUNE.

The festival of Saturday wes certainly a striking one. Solemnized in a Royal Palace, and presided over by the Consort of the Queen, it was naturally a gorgeou...

NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 11 September 1860

NEW ZEALAND. We have Auckland papers to the 14th ult. brought by the Tyne. Our intelligence received by telegraph from Sydney via Melbourne is to the 18th. The following which appears in the Southern Cross of the 14th appears to be the latest   news from the seat of war to which the telegraphic despatch published in the Mercury of Wednesday   last refers. TARANAKI. By the " Will Watch," which arrived in the Manukau, on Saturday, we are in receipt of news up to the previous Thrusday, though not of news paper files.   No collision had taken place since our last ad- vices, between Europeans and natives. Rumours, however are rife, and it has been generally re- ported, that a skirmash had taken place at the Bell     Block, in which nine natives had fallen. In the absence of definite information on the subject it   appears probable to us that this refers to the skirmish, a report of which appeared in a late issu...

THE MERCURY. TUESDAY MORNING, SEPT. 11TH. 186O. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 11 September 1860

THE MERCURY. TUESDAY MORNING, SEPT. 11TH. 18GO. The COLONIAL TREASURER said on Friday night that the proposal to sell St. Mary's Hospital to the government and hand over the proceeds, after paying existing liabilities, to Dr. BEDFORD as a remuneration for the gratuitous services he had rendered to the iustitution during the last nineteen years was a " subject " beset with difficulties ;" and we admit at once that it is so. Whatever may have bee» the benevolent intentions of the founders of St. Mary's Hospital it is very evident that, in con- sequence of the recent liberal action of the Legislature, those intentions have been entirely frustrated. The terms upon which the General Hospital lias been thrown open to the public have deprived St. Mary's of any claim to bo considered a charitable institution. Dr. BED- FORD foresaw this result when the matter was before tho Parliament not very long ago, and honorable members were induced with evident reluctance to vote two thousand pounds fr...
