THE RUSSIAN BEAR'S MONKEY. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 28 January 1856

THE RUSSIAN BEAR'S MONKEY. (From the Daily Nsws.) If it is true that the veteran courtier Nesselrode has become an object of suspicion in his latter days to his sovereign, and to the heads of both the great parties in Russia, it is really no matter of surprise. Apart from the moral truism that men who try to keep well with everybody end by being out of favour with all, there are circumstances in the career ot Nesselrode which account for any jealousy and mistrust on the part of his late and present master. It must be remembered (and Nicholas never forgot it) how very long the career of this aged politician has been. He was in the vigour of his years and his faculties — just above thirty — when the century opened on the rising grandeur of Napoleon. He calcu lated his fortunes and laid put his career on the supposition of an eternal friendship between Russia and France. As far as he has since had any political ideas of his own, they have always beon in accordance with that early and v...

PUBLIC FEELING IN ST. PETERSBURG. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 28 January 1856

PUBLIC FEELING IN ST. PETERSBURG. The following letter from St. Petersburg, which appeared in the Constitutional, indicates the state of feeling in that quarter :— 'St. Petersburg, 15th October. ' Unfavourable accounts succeed each other with such rapidity here that the greatest despondency has siezed on all classes. We had scarcely learned the defeat of General Korff, near Eupatoria, when we were informed by telegraph of thi arrival of the Allied fleets before Odessa. On the other hand, the anxiety observed among the upper classes, and even the members of the Imperial family, has contributed in no small degree to increase the public alarm. A report prevailed during the course of the day that the Empress had commanded General Gezevitch to proceed express to Nicholaieff with a litter for the Emperor, in which she entreats him to return to St. Petersburg. The approach of the enemy has aroused the fears of both Empresses. The Czar is no longer safe at the extremity of the liman on whic...

THE ANGLO-PRUSSIAN ALLIANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 28 January 1856

THE ANGLO-PRUSSIAN ALLIANCE.. (From the Geelong Advertiser,) The statement in the Jate English news, of an union between the Royal families of England and Prussia seems to be passed over in utter silence, as too incredible, or it is treated with indifference, as an ordinary announcement of an ' approaching marriage in high life.' The ground of incredibility is about as reasonable as the indifferent aspect in which a passing glance is bestowed on a pending event, the consummation of which may soon embroil and complicate us still further in the issues of the war. What is there so impossible in the match spoken of that it . should never be made up : or, is what may come of it so light that it is not worth the weight of a .single grain of thought ? The few who trouble themselves to think or speak for a second on a topic which appears of such foreign import, say that if the report proves to be well founded, it will teach the people not to put so much faith in the policy of their rulers. ...

But we believe the harmless humbuff-to be spread ?over a much wider surface in the economy of daily life, ?even than the useful commodity. Where can we turn 'without meeting with it ? It is needful to our very ex istence , it greases, as it were, the wheels of society, and makes every axle, and lever, and cog-wheel, work as smoothly as a well-oiled piston rod. Step into this court of justice. What do you see ? A grave-looking gentleman in robes, before whom are some twenty outlandish creatures in wigs. Well, is there aught wrong' in that ? Not in the least ; if the wisdom lies in the wig, let them wear their head dresses for ever ; only it seems to us a very innocent species of humbug.

The incompleteness of the Hies brought ' by the Clasmerdon and Shooting Star, prevents our giving a clear ; account of how the matter stands. For the following quotation from the London papers, we are indebted to Saturday's Melbourne Age :— . : The Times says, in reference to the relations between England , and America — :' It is because we see no hope of finding in the United States a Government capable of preventing its citizens from waging private war on their own account against the best friends and truest allies of the great republic, that we are most unwillingly compelled, even in the midst of the great European -i struggle in which we are engaged, to assume a defensive attitude, ?; in order to trample out the first sparks of this fire, and prevent a conflagration ...

SNAKES. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 4 February 1856

: SNAKES. I There are several-kinds of snakes in Australia that are venomous, -and the bite of any kind deserves to bo carefully treated. Some are, of course, much moro deadly than others, but none of them -ought to be trifled ivith. The first thing to be considered iu a case of accident of this sort is promptitude in the application to ? such remedies as are attainable. When the bite is inflicted the virus is very rapidly absorbed into the svstem ; and when that is - once the case, all medical aid is apt to be found of little avail. It is a matter of vast importance that professional assistance should ?be immediately sought for, but meantime the nearest bystander should not be idle. The great object is to prevent the poison from . getting into the circulation. This, without prompt measures, ' rapidly takes place, aud the life of the patient is often more de pendent upon the presence of mind and knowledge of ivhat is best ? to be done by his immediate neihgbour, than upon the skill ...

TOWN AND TABLE TALK ON LITERATURE, ART, &c. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 4 February 1856

TOWN AND TABLE TALK ON LITERATURE, ART, &c. ( From the Illustrated London News, October ?0) There is a readable article on the Fourth Estate, or the News paper Press of England, in the new number of the Edinburgh R eview. The writer takes an enlarged and able view of the vast influence of the Press at the present moment in conducting the government of the country, and in forming the opinion of the public in all matters of public moment. An evil in the magni tude 01 this influence is indicated by the writer, but the cure he does not see. An odd mistake occurs in the opening of the article — the writer attributing the origin of newspapers among us to a man of the name of Nathaniel Butler, of whom he evidently knows nothing, and not to Nathaniel Butler, of whom he knows as much, and of whom this accidental mentioning of his name reminds us that we have something to tell that is new. This Nathaniel Butter, to whom we owe the introduction of newspapers into Eng land, was a publis...

THE SECOND SEBASTOPOL. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 4 February 1856

THE SECOND SEBASTOPOL. Nicolaieff appears at present to be the especial object of the emperor's paternal affection, and the most gigantic efforts are being made to render it a second Sebastopol, as it is now the prin cipal naval establishment in the south. Five-and-twenty years ngo it had never been heard of out of Russia, and owes its sudden rise to the genius and energy of Admiral Lazareff. It is situated at the confluence of the Bug and the Ingul, and surrounded by a. barren and flat steppe. There is 110 bridge here across the rivers, and the communication between the two shores is kept up by means of flat-bottomed boats or ferries. The population at present amounts to 38,067 persons, inhabiting 4,998 houses. The town contains six Russo Greek churches, besides a catholic and a Lutheran one, and two synagogues (one for the Jews and the other for the Karaites). Amongst the most important and striking buildings are tbe admiralty and several magnificent barracks of three stories each...

A TRIP INTO. RUSSIA. I had not been many days in my new appointment when I had to accompany-an officer on a journey to Russia to negociate an ex change of prisoners ; and a very pleasant trip it was, I assure you. We went by water to Odessa, where we remained a fortnight, having to wait the arrival Of instructions to the governor from St. Petersburg. However, I was not sorry for that, as we had a favourable opportunity of inspecting the town, &c. The inhabi tants with whom we were thrown in contact behaved pretty tole rable towards us ; but still we were looked on with distrust. We had perfect liberty to roam about the town, but were not allowed anywhere in the vicinity of the fortifications or public works. The English and French residents — of whom there are plenty in Odessa — behaved with unbounded kindness ; in short, while there they vied with each other who should have me as a guest. I might have set them all by the ears, but that I divided my time as much as possible ...
