ENGLAND'S FORTIFICATIONS. (FROM THE TIMES, 25TH JULY.) [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 17 September 1860
ENGLAND'S FORTIFICATIONS. (mott the Titrrt., 2öTn juiy) The House of Commons ought not to require any,apology for self-defence, aud does not aski.1 for any apology. Its members are sufficiently acquainted with tho merits of a defensive atti- tude in dealing with one another, You don't suspect your neighbour of wishing to insult you, but he will like yon all the better for wishing to be respected, and even a little feared. - If you build a strong party-wall between your house_ and your neighbour's it is not because youJ sus« ' peet him of a design to defraud au insurance ( company, or think his house more thau(; commonly inflammable. It is enough ' for . you that, should ho happen-1 io catch fire you will be in some danger. If you raise walls and screens between , your garden and his, you simply wish to spare him all temptation to an illicit curiosity. In- deed, half the apparatus of civilization is protec tive,and oven exclusive. So Lord Palmerston was simply resting his application...
LATEST EUROPEAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 17 September 1860
[ ^LATEST EUROPEa'nT \ The Court removed on July 4 to Osborne, i where it still remains. It is expected that the ' Queen will depart for the Highlands of Scot« \ land early in August. Her Majesty will . probably make a stay of two or three days in s Edinburgh on her way to Balmoral. ' The Prince of Wales,' as we state elsewhere, , sailed for Canada on the 10th of July. On June 30 the King of the Belgians and . the Count of Flanders took leave of the Queen on their return to Belgium. The Home News says : The speech of Lord Palmerston asking for a vote of two millions for the coast defences of England, within the present year, will be read with deep interest in the Colonies, because it points clearly to a danger from which the Colo- nies themslves aro not wholly secure. We do not beliove that even if so wild a project as the invasion of England were really contemplated by France, a descent on any nf our colonies could form a part of the Imperial scheme of aggicssion. The danger would ...

NEW SOUTH WALFS. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 17 September 1860
NEW SOUTH WALFS. We havo Sydney papers to tho 8th hist. They ' contain no political intelligence. The Herald has the following on the subject of the Kiandra diggings : The Southern Escort now on its way from Goulbourn brings this week only six hundred and fifty-two ounces of gold from Kiandra. Our cor- respondent forewarned iib to expect but a small "amount, as the water was too abundant to allow the richest claims to be worked. The smallness of the.amount, however, shows that the drier diggings have not yielded enough to make up the deficiency. And that being so it is clear that every body up "there cannot be enjoying a state of prosperity com- mensurate with the drawbacks of the modo of life. There are between two and three thousand people there, and the week's proceeds, if divided equally, would not give above a pound n-piece, Which, lia the minimum cost of living is said to bo about thirty shillings a week, would not bo a very jprosporous state of things. And since some have, of...
