OUR DEFENCES. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 24 September 1860

OUR DEFENCES, Tho public needed no ghost to tell it what a direful calamity would bo the occupation of London by an invading enemy. And Lord Overstono is not richer than any other man of common senso and experience in his knowledge upou this subject. He says what all 84V, it must not bo. Ho places, his «rat line of defence in the ohonnel, and supposing any serious re- verse to happen there, then the next Hue must bo taken np foot to foot with the enonvy. There are, indeed, throe lines; first, the fleet; secondly, opposition! to a landing ; thirdly, if that great difficulty bo surmounted, our armiei covering London, and contesting every mon of ground, with the advantage of Uuowtedgo of the country and thp command of all its resources, while the enemy would romain with only the e* hnustible supplies ho had brought with bim.

THE AGAPEMONE. [TIMES 12TH JUNE.] [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 24 September 1860

--T'thb'ägäpemone."' < [times 12th JONE.] It is now some twelve or thirteen years ago that a quiet parish in Somersetshire wasastoniahed by the arrival of a clergyman who professed strange doctrines, and was accompanied by strange disciples. According to the chief of this new sect, a fresh religious epoch had opened on the world. We were to live under a new dispensation, which, if it did not contradict, was at least to supersede, the forms of belief in which we had all been trained. The keystone of the new » system was this :-Various covenants have been at different times offered to man by his Creator. At first Adam was the Divine witness ; then the Patriarchs, as Noah and Ahraham '; then a far greater One than these. But each " dispensation" was closed whenever any one was found perfect under it. Now, in Brother Prince was found perfection under the Christian dispensation, and,consequently, anew religious eporh commenced, with this pian as its witness. Ia Prince a íeligi...

THE MERCURY. MONDAY MORNING, SEPT. 24th, 1860. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 24 September 1860

[ THE MERCURY. MONDAY MORNING, SEPT, 24x», 1860, -? - It is to be regretted that on more than one point of practical importance, a fatal want of harmony has been displayed iii the views pre I vailing ia the two Houses of Parliament. Ou matters purely political there is no room for sur- prise, when the two branches of the Legislature assume an antagonistic attitude, and persist in adhering to it. No one could reasonably expect to find the Upper House yielding to the Lower, or the Lover succumbing to the Upper, on the occasion of the invasion of the rights of the Council, which Mr. Whïïe's Bill lately sought to deal with ; and in that caso a degd-iocfc could only be avoided, as happily was done, by the moderation which refrained from pu-hiig the collision to extremity, Cut it is more unintelli- gible, and more mortifyiug, to witness iriecon cileable differences of opinion on matters of small moment, viewed in the light of principle, but of considerable importance in their practical be...

NEW CALEDONIA. -m Wo (Sydney Morning Berala) havo received afilo of the iíoniícur Imperial, tho official journal of this colony, up to the 2nd September. From the very meagre store of information contained in the official documents, wo mako the followiug extracts : " The population of New Caledonia, not including the military or aboriginals, amounted, on the 30th Juuo last, to 314 males and 97 females ; tho number, at the end of the precodhig quarter to March 30, 'being 332 males and 100 females. From tin's it would appear that there was a decrease of l8 moles and three females on the quarter. " By.a proclamation under date 21st July, the Government has declared that tho Municipal Coun- cil of the Commune of Port de France has ceased to exist, on tho ground that the administration and financial position of the colony do not allow of a muuicipal body acting in an effective and regular manner, and that, consequently, there were no proper means of submitting the councillors to a now el...

COMPENSATION. TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 24 September 1860

COMPENSATION. TO THE EDITOR OF THE JIEr.CURT. Stn,-I am heartily glad the English moil lins arrived to give the good citizens of Hobart Town a fresh topic for conversation. For really during the last few days it lias been a perfect bore to bo constrained to listen to persons of all classes discussing the one subject or " Com- pensation"; and tie word itself has almost become -nauseous by its frequent repetition. Now who is to Warne for this ? Why, surely, our wise and liberal Legislators ; for a report has gone abroad that they aro willing to compensate everybody, not forgetting, it is to be hoped, themselves and their particular friends. Oh ! what a glorious consummation it will be, Mr, Editor, when everybody in Tasmania obtains full compensation for bis or her alleged legal or moral claims upon the Public Treasury ! But, may I ask, where are the funds to eoine from to satisfy all these olaimauts,for theil name is, or will be, Legion ? I know of several already who oousidcr they ha...

COLONEL GOLD. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 24 September 1860

COLONEL GOLD. An impression has gone abroad that Colonel Gold, about whom we bato heard so maify papiful reports in connexion with the rebellion in Kew Zealand, had been promoted to a higher rank by General PpAff, This bfts very naturally led to the belief tjjat Cqlqnel QoLg has bcqn somewhat roughly treated in the comments wade br the press on his conduct at taranaki, conduct of which this piomotion was presumed to be au approval. General Fuatt, however, has not the power of prgmotiug Colonel Gold or aay otyer officer iu tho Army. 4H promotions, must emanate from the Horse Guards ; and it is certain, therefore, that his new raak, the saine as oyory either step lip has taken, has not been bestowed upon him by the Horse Guaids as a niaik of honor but lias been the íesult qf that ratal system which still mpvails -purchase We mention this because wo know there has been a great deal of apprehension on this subj ect.
