TO EDYE MANNING, ESQ [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 25 August 1856

TO EDYE MANNING, ESQ (Per favour oj the Illawarra Mercury.) Sir— Permit me to make a very few observations on your letter inserted in- last Monday's Mercury. You admit that it is. ridiculous to claim an exclusive property in tlie 'Wollongong. trade, and yet yon assert that right as having established tliat trade — you maintain that exclusive right by driving the ' Kiama' away twelve months a%o by running at nomiual fares, and you try to do so again by obstructions at the port, and ov snirtmg ana manoeuvring your tunc oi departure anu arrival by your three first class vessels — witness your advertise ments for. the last two weeks. This has a meaning when confined to the attempt to drive the 'Kiama'' away from the trade, you State you established : — but it has a further meaning when, after driving the '? Kiama' from Wollongong, you endeavoured also to diivo tho 'Kiama' from the port of Kiama also. The excuse for this last attempt is vain, for the ' Nora Creina' was a'ways Under your ...

Sydney Correspondence. SYDNEY, AUGUST 22. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 25 August 1856

Iiihni Ciu'itiiptiiirmt. SYDNEY, AUGUST 22. I There .is ho ^ne fallacy more common in political economy than the idea that it is a very simple matter to mako or mend a Constitution, either for a colony or an empire. The new fledged politician, remembering in his boyhood ,hc conld make a kite or spin a peg-top, rushes to the conclusion that it is quite as easy to construct the machinery of a Government. He joins himself to other sanguine greenhorns, and they try the experiment. I need not nnrsue the simile. The constitution menders of New So.uth Wales have before their eyes the effect of blotching. Time enough, in all conscience, was employed in framing the Constitution .of responsible Government ; and when the pet machine was set :a going every thing went as smoothly as a marriage bell. All at once the fly-wheel refuses to act, or the boiler bursts, or the cylinders are not air-tight, or something else is wrong, and the engine -stops altogether, and another manufacturing firm must b...
