THE MERCURY. MONDAY MORNING, SEPT. 17TH, 186O. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 17 September 1860

THE MERCURY. MONDAY MORNING, SEPT. 17tii, 18GO. Oun indefatigable Surveyor Gênerai, lius lately returned from an inspection of the Country ljing between the Mersey and the Loveu Rivers and in the vicinity of the Patter sonia, Piper's and Ringarooma Hivers, and his Reports, which are now lying before us, are certainly of a most encouraging kind. That we have large tracts of Waste Lands of the very best description at present wholly unproductive is clearly shown in these official documents, the only apparent obstacle to their settlement being the want of roads. Mr. Calder urges the immediate expenditure of some thousands of pounds for this purpose confidently asserting, with reference especially to the large area iu ScoU's Nour Country, that for every shilling ex- pended in opening up the fifteen thousand acres of fertile: land in that vicinity by makin« roads twenty shillings Vould be returned to the Land Revenues of the Colony.

THE MERCURY. ! TUESDAY MORNING, SEPT. 18tii, 18CO. Tiru rapidity of the brief campaign which opened with the descent of the French legions on the plains of Lombardy, and ivas terminated in a few weeks, after two bril« liant victories, by the treaty of Villafranca, was an episode of history characteristic of the times in which we live. It is a fast age. We appear to ha\e seen the last of our long wars. They have gone, together with the interminable Chancery suits and the heavy stages of a past generation. We travel by railway, correspond by electricity, and are only consistent when we effect historical developments with the same rapidity as tho changing combinations of the Kaleidoscope. Bewildered with perpetual muta- tion ; breathless and panting in our attempt to koep up-with events that are ever outstripping us ; we never know exactly where wo are. "The fli"'htof line" used to be a rcspectsble metaphor with a reasonable meaning. But ia its headlong progress the world seems bent on...
