PRINTING THE BIBLE. (TIMES.) [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 6 July 1860

HUNTING THE BIBLE.,. (Ï1MI S.) Tho Report of tlie fíclüct .Committee 01 um House of Commons, adopte/I only by the casting vote of its chairman, Mr. Baines, recommends Hie withdrawal of tho Queen's Printers' and Universities' patent for tho priming of tho Bible. The lloport of nu equally divided Coaimittee will not curry with it much authority and niny be looked upon ns no verdict nt all. But this is not all that is to be «aid of this Report. Tlie reasons which ,it gives for re- commending this: chango are, considering the quantity of actual evidence of fact bearing upon this question, veiy odd ones. They are prin» cipally the pure suggestions of the imagination of the Committee-i. c, of one half of it ; they consist mainly of a scries of hypothetical " guarantees" for the same accuracy and cheapness of printed Bibles under a system of unrestricted competition that there is under the present one,-" the vigilance of the public,*' " the watchful care of the clergy and ministers," " the...

CAPTAIN DENHAM'S SURVEY. [SYDNEY HERALD.] [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 6 July 1860

I CAPTAIN DUNHAM'S SURVEY. [sydney herald.] Tho marine surveys effected by Captain Denham on the north-oast coast of Australia, to which wo have already called attention, and which havo greatly dissipated the dangers of navigation ia that quarter, will undoubtedly stimulate tho desiro of tho colonists of Queensland to open up steam com- munication with Asia by way of Torres Straits. The desiro already exists strongly, but whether it would be wise to attempt to realise it at once may bo doubted. Tiie young colony cannot afford to bo lavish of its income nt starting. Economy will bo strictly necosfary to maleo ends meet, while the whole apparatus of separate Government has to be borna by a very small population. No finan- cial skill can wring out of thirty thousand people a revenue that shall accomplish at onco all tho pro- jects that tho possession of a wide-spreading terri- tory suggests. Many things that are desirable, and that aro even possible, and that will bo ulti- mately reali...

THE MERCURY. FRIDAY MORNING, JULY 6, 1860. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 6 July 1860

THE MERCURY. FRIDAY MORNING, JULY 6, 1860. A moderate estimate fixes the probable Spring population of the Snowy River at fifty thousand souls. Whether that number of diggers—or the usual proportion of diggers to such a gold field population—will find it profitable perma- nently to remain on the ground is a point which cannot be settled by anticipation. We have no knowledge as yet of the extent of country over, which auriferous deposit spreads. Ground   has been broken at points miles distant from each other. The Government of Victoria have official intimation of the discovery of a gold- field twenty miles nearer the boundary of that Colony than Kiandra. The Government of New South Wales have acknowledged them- selves to be in possession of information, which they deemed it impolitie to make public at a time when any new stimulus given to the rush could only have been attended with disastrous conse- quences. All we can say with certainty is that there appears every reas...
