IRELAND. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 29 September 1856

IRELAND. A meeting has been held in Dublin to aid in relieving the sufferers by the recent inundations in France. Colonel Brown, a commissioner of police, a man who had seen much service, said : ?'I am very glad to express my admiration of the French, although I have been very ill-treated by them. They shot me in the arm, in both legs, hit me in the neck and wounded my hip— but, when the battle was over, they acted as noble fellows, and treated the wounded who fell into their hands mercifully.' Prenarations are making to entertain the Earl of Carlisle at a public banquet in Limerick on the occasion of his visit to that city, on the 9th July, to open the Foy'nes Railway.

CHIEF EVENTS AND TOPICS OF THE WEEK ENDING JULY S. ' Tho French Princes of the .exihjd 'House of Orleans' are pro testing right and left. First, we have the sons of Louis-Philippe protesting against the project of law which has been submitted ? to the French Chambers for granting £8,000 a year to each of the throe princesses of their family, upon the ' ground that the nreamble contains the word ' benevolence,' and that ' benevolence can only be exercised where there is no rightful claim.'

THE MINISTERS' DEFEAT. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 29 September 1856

THE) MINISTERS' DE.FEAT. . ? Thk motion of Mr. Hay, expressing a want of confidence in the Cowper Cabinet, has received the assent of a majority of the Assembly. The motion was grounded on two charges against Mr, Cowper ; one that he had formed his Ministry 'in opposition to the known will of a majority of the House;' the other,' ' that there were, circumstances in the career and character of the man who was appointed Attorney General which rendered him ineligible to fill such office.' These are the grounds on which the motion, as stated bv Mr. Hay in liis rpnlv was founded. To prove the utter want of soundness or substantiality in these groulds is, fortunately, not a very difficult taslc. ,'' Every- circumstance of importance connected with Mr. Cowper's formation of a Ministry, and of Mr. Martin's appointment as Attorney General, and of his previous career, has been clearly elicited during the. long debate on Mr. Hay's motion, 'We will endeavour, nevertheless, as concisely and corr...

GENERAL SUMMARY OF LATEST INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 29 September 1856

GENERAL SUMMARY OF LATEST INTELLIGENT. The new Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs is the Earl of Shelburne, an unknown nobleman. He takes the place of Lord Wodehouse, the new Minister to St. Petersburg. Lord Shelburne is also to be raised to the peerage, and General Wil liams is to be appointed in his stead as representative of Calne. All this is nicely arranged. We stated yesterday that Parliament might possibly be pro ; . rogued on the 30th of the present month, but Ministers are ?anxious that they should re made tree from Parliamentary re sponsibility a week earlier. They are hurrying on everything for that desirable consummation ; so that, on or about the 24th of the month of July (not August or September), the noble Premier will ? have it all his own way on the American question. In the House of Lords, on 4th July, the bill for the reform of the University of Cambridge was discussed in committee, and . '.Lord Lyndhursfc proposed that no one should sit as a member of ?...

: #tj&anj Cnrrf0patih?trcf, ' . ' . .;'.; SYDNEY, SEPEMB.EE 26, J856, It is surely an unpropitious commencement of the system of responsible government, which we have striven so long to obtain, that the first two Ministries should in turn have checkmated eaoh other, without either having been allowed the opportunity of earry ing out their intended pojicy. In fact each has brought against the other the charge of having factioiuly prevented the experi ment of governing. If this state of things is to go on, the (jpvernui »yiu uu at ms wit s enu to appoint a ministry wno wi(i oe permitted to carry out their measures, unless a fusion of parties take place, as was suggested by Mr. Nichols in the debate of Wednesday. The Colonial Secretary (Mr. Cowper) concluded a lengthy speech by saying, he was not insensible to the voice of the House, but the manner in which Mr, Hay's motion had been brought forward, would deprive it of much of its sting, and what ever might Jie the result of th...

Agriculture. AGRICULTURAL CHEMISTRY NO. III. THE NATURE AND EFFECTS OF CHEMICAL COMBINATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 29 September 1856

Slgrimltart ? AGRICULTURAL CHEMISTRY. NO. III. ,The Nature and Effects of Chemical Combinations. In accordance with the intimation in my last paper, I resume the consideration of the atomic theory. What is meant by the atomic weight of any substance is simply this — the known weight or proportion in which it combines with all other substances, — anA it expresses the relative estimated weight of an atom of one element proportionally to all tho 'oilier elements. Tniic, fin example, tho combinations of oxygen with mercury. There are two proportions in which they combine — one atom of oxygen unites with one atom ot mercury to lorm the protoxi/ac ; — tjwo atoms of oxygen with one of mercury form the peroxyde. The atomic weight of oxygen is 8 — of mercury 200 ; therefore the protoxyde of mercury consists ot eight parls, (by weight,)of oxygen and two hundred parts, (by weight,) of mercury, forming by their combination two hundred and eight parts of protoxyde: and the peroxyde is composed o...
