FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 1 September 1856

FRANCE. . A fearful inundation has desolated the southern basin and central provinces of France. Tho conduct .of tlie Emperor, in the presence of this calamity, was characteristic alike of his prompti tude and'his po)'^,,.' Instead of trusting to the reports of com missioners, or cdA jJiting himself with issuing orders, he set out at onee^ tor Lyons to inspect the scene of the devastations, and administer relief in person. Haying rapidly explored the towns and villages where the rising of the rivers had destroyed an enor mous amoun t Of property, and suspended the operations of local industry, he returned to Paris. But finding upon his arrival that equally disastrous accounts were coming in from the ynliey of the Loire, he instantly called a council of ministers, obtained a vote often millions of francs in addition to two millions previously granted for the ai.d pf the sufferers, and started for Orleans. Bv this display of seasonable energy and practical sympathy with the people, he...

The shippers them selves being the proprietors, the best security would be given to the publie, that the lowest possible charges would be made con sistent with the sustentation of the steamer...

SUMMARY OF LATE EVENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 1 September 1856

SUMMARY OF LATE EVENTS. The Steamer of the 20th May carried home the news of the assassination of Mr. King, the reorganization of the Vigilance Com mittee, and the rescue from the gaol of Casey and Cora. These great events in the history of California, are no more important or startling than those which have transpired since. On the day following the sailing of the steamers, the mortal remains of the beloved King were consigned to their last resting place, by the largest funeral train ever known in California. While these solemn ceremonies were being performed, Casey and Cora were expiating their lives of infamy upon the scaffold, at the hands of an outraged people. While these melancholy events were transpiring, and the excite ment of our community was at its highest pitch, as if to add fuel to the already angry flame, the sad intelligence of the accident on the Panama railroad was received. The day will long be remem bered in the history of California. The excitement' has, however...

(To the Editor of the Illawarra Mercury.) [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 1 September 1856

{To the Edito' of the Illawarra Mercury.) Sir — In this morning's Mercury I find myself an avowed Volun tary, openly declaring that the connection between Church and State under all circumstances is wrong. I feel grieved and vexed that, in a way very simple, and as it then appeared to me quite harmless,- 1 have been brought before the public pleading for orincinles which I do not hold. My explanation is this : — A friend of mine (holding voluntary principles) wrote me some six or eight weeks ago, giving a statement of his views anent tlie present con-, troversy. He requested me to emhody his statement in a letter or paragraph which might appear in the Mercury. I consented to do this, but never dreaming that when it should appear it would bear my signature. My. friend certainly owes me an apology, and E now see that, with or without my signature, such a proceedure is a very doubtful one. Yours, &c., August 25, 1856. NORVALIS.

(To the Editor of the Illawarra Mercur.) Sir — An advertisement having appeared in your issue of last Monday week, headed ' Touters wanted for the steamer Illawarra,' 1 beg to state that it was not put in at my instance, nor at the instance of any one connected with the steamer. It must have been inserted by an adverse party, with the hope of injuring the .llawarra. The Illawarra can certainly get a fair share of public support without touting or puffing, depending as she does upon her great speed and general fitness for the Wollongong trade. I remain, Sir, yours, &c. C. SULLIVAN, Commander of the steamer Illawarra. Wollongong, August 30, 1856.
