BAD ROADS. [FROM THE TIMES, 5TH JULY.] [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 25 September 1860

BAD ROADS. [FROM THE TIMES, OTU JULY.] There are few things that require so largo an expenditure of sentiment to defend thein as a bad country road. When you have to travel five miles up and down steep hills, and through water lanes sometimes up to your axletree, instead of half the distauce on a dry level ; when you have to go for miles at à walking pace through deep gravel or'sand ; when, after' committing yourself to a short cut, your coach- man suddenly comes to a halt-say, at 7 p.m., and tells you he really cannot go on, and must turn back to take the long way, just not quite so bad ; or when all the roads ia your neigh- bourhood appear to be designed on the principle of describing at least half the circumference of every field you come near, and fording every stream twice in a mile, it is such a comfort to feel that it is all done on the good old parish system, by old-fashioned way wardens and aged paupers, from the parish stone-pit, or with the best parish mixture of gravel a...

COUNTRY DISTRICTS. OAT LANDS. (FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) COURT OF REQUESTS.-FRIDAY. Before Thomas Mason, Esq., Deputy Commis- sioner. CAMPBELL V. GREGSON. This was an action for the recovery of £8, being money alleged to have been paid by mistake in giving two £5 notes instead of two £1 notes in payment of a claim of £2. The plaintiff is a small farmer, and the defendant is a shepherd, both residing at the Blue Hills, near Oatlands. The plaintiff said in April last the defendant sold him two pigs for £2. In the following month he called at his house for payment. Plaintiff kept his money in a chest, in which he had three £5 notes and three £1 notes, the former placed by themselves, and the latter by themselves. He requested his wife to go to the chest for the money to pay the defendant, and after doing so, she handed to the plaintiff two bank notes, which he passed to the defendant without looking at them and he then left. The same day the plaintiff discovered that two of his three £5 n...

THE MASSACRE OF THE CHRISTIANS. [FROM THE TIMES, 10TH JULY.] [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 26 September 1860

TIIE MASSACRE OF THE CHRISTIANS. [FROM THE TIMES, 10TH JULY.] Events are now occurring in Syria which must at once bring the Eastern question again beforo the world. The interference ' of the French is certain, and England will be untrue to her nature if she does not aid in repressing atrocities which surpass anything that has of late years been perpetrated, even by the animosity of raoe and religion. The scene of these horrible tragedies is the range of the Lebanon, and the numbers and audacity oí the murderers are such, that damascus on the one aid,? gnd Beyrout on the other M« thought hardly oaf«, In the iiclglitKiui'kood of Mount Hermon whole villages have been destroyed ami their Christian inhabitants put to the sword. Catholics, Greeks, and the little communities of Protestauts have shared the same fate. In some cases the butchery has been in cold blood. In others the villages have been surprised at night and every, male slaughtered. In the very neighbourhood of Beyrout the mu...

VOLUNTEER NAVAL BRIGADE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 26 September 1860

VOLUNTEER NAVAL BRIGADE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. SIR,-It must bo a source of gratification to those who wish to believe that this Colony is in earnest in its wish to provide for its own defence to find that there is a chance of a Naval Brigade being formed. Such an arm of our defence service, if properly managed and supported, would act on our waters, in conjunction with our artillery and rifles on land, to defend our homes. During my residence in England. a hankering on my part after all tilings appertaining to naval matters, frequently led ina to visit the Royal Dock- yards of Portsmouth, Devonport, and Deptford. At the two former of these any ono might have seen (as I did) amongst the large vessels, a number of small frigates and corvettes laid up in ordinary. These vessels thoughperfectlysoundandseaworthy, are yet of the lines and build of ships rather gono by, or out of fashion. Such vessels, in short us aie rather irreverently termeil" Jack-ass" frigates, or those old 26...

THE WAR IN NEW ZEALAND. TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 26 September 1860

THE WAR IN NEW ZEALAND. TO TUE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. SIR,-May I be allowed to correct some mis- apprehensions into which the public have been led by the recent intelligence from New Zealand, aa they have occaslobed much needless- anxiety to thoBO who bavo friends at the seat of war. 1. The open country is reported to be almost entirely in the occupation of the Maories-by the open country is not meant the whole Island, but the district of Taranaki-say twonty miles long by eight wide. Hostilities are at present confined to this district, and thoy are not likely to bo ex- tended. 2. I have reason to believe that on a very liberal estimate the number of natives in aram against our Government does not exceed 1800; and though doubtless the surrounding tribes of the Waikato may take advantage of any reverse on our part to indulge in a little insolence to travel- lers, or oven to furnish a few adventurers to tho Taranaki tribes, they are not at all likely to com- mit themselves by any form...
