INDISCRIMINATE DISTRIBUTION OF MILITARY HONOURS. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 4 February 1856

INDISCRIMINATE DISTRIBUTION OF MILITARY HONOURS. ( From the Morning Post;) The general population, the men of the classes from whom the ranks or -the^imy-are recruited, are much, at bottom, of the stuff, as those who officer them, and are capable of being influenced by the same feelings.. Make the calling of the private soldier a pos sible means of obtaining asocial position distinguished from his fellow-men in his class, and let him find in it a road to the gratifi cation of honourable ambition, and recruits will not be lacking who will take a service at a rate of pay which, while it is liberal as re gards the servant, is equitable as it affects the public and the tax payer. Our government and the public have dealt wisely and generously with the soldier as regards mere pay, and as regards the family whom his death in the service of bis country may de prive of his aid and support ; but we think that the part which feelings play in the military service, and the modes of touching and ...

THE COLONIAL DEPARTMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 4 February 1856

THE COLONIAL DEPARTMENTS. We learn from a reliable source that the office of Sec retary of State for the colonies has been offered to Lord Elgin, but declined by him in favour of Lord John Rus sell. As the position in which it has pleased Lord J olin Russell to place himself makes his having a seat in any cabinet that could hope to enjoy the national confidence out of the question at present, we trust we may accept this expression of diffidence on the part of Lord Elgin as nothing more than a decorous nolo episcopari. There are at present only two other public men besides Lord Elgin in the field whose antecedents give them the slightest claim to the appointment — Lord John Russell and the Duke of Newcastle. But the conduct of the one in reference to the war, and of the other in the Conferences ' at Vienna, are too fresh in the recollection of the people to admit of the nomination of either being tolerated. .Lord Harrowby has been spoken of, but if he knows any thing of colonial affa...

CALIFORNIA AND AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 4 February 1856

' : CALIFORNIA AND AUSTRALIA. In the, rise and progress of California and Australia— the two great goldfields — a fair opportunity has been presented of com paring the colonial system of Great Britain and the workings of our democratic institutions. When the discovery of gold was made at Sutter's Mills, and its' announcement was spread abroad, there flocked to the. territory of California the representatives of almost every nation. Of course among such a multitude a large number were to be found who were, indeed, the very scum of the different communities of which they had- been members. This was only what might have been expected, since it was chiefly the idle and the vicious who could afford, at a moment's warning, to forsake their homes and their business, to embark upon an expedition the success of which was so uncertain. The gathering together of such a heterogeneous mass of human beings produced its natural effect. Every account which reached us from the golden region brought ...

English Extracts. "CORRESPONDENTS" IN THE CRIMEA. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 4 February 1856

€:u{jlb!f fofrnrts. 'CORRESPONDENTS' IN THE CRIMEA. It; would be well to consider calmly and dispassionately whether the letters written from the seat of war to the London papers can really interfere with or damage the operations of the allied armies. - -General Delia Marmora has already declared that they do, and it is' said the French and English commanders have begun to con-' aider whether they should not summarily nut a stop to the trans mission of such correspondence. The question is a harder one to ? - - he answered than is generally imagined, and cannot be disposed of] by the choleric ' d — the fellows !'' with which the veterans of the old ' blood-and-thunder' school are mostly inclined to treat it. In the countries now allied against Russia it has a different aspect from that presented in despotic nations. In England, France, or Sardinia, there is nobody who can say, ' ISetat e'est moi.' In the, United Kingdom everybody has more or less a place a,nd interest in; the. common...

WHAT A REPRESENTATIVE SHOULD BE, AND WHAT HE SHOULD DO. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 4 February 1856

WHAT A REPRESENTATIVE SHOULD BE, AND WHAT HE SHOULD DO. In our last issue we introduced our readers to the con sideration of the above subject. To know our duty, and ? to do it, are imperatively binding upon us, as citizens of ? -this free country. At all times! these are matters of . bounden duty, and in every direction. But they are pre-eminently our duty at the present time. We have had i -thrust upon us a bastard constitution, and with the mea sure of liberty it awards to ns, we are about to return two representatives to the ensuing Parliament. Our conduct just now will affect not ourselves alone, not our children alone, but those thousands and tens of thousands who shall ?land upon our shores, or be kept away from us by the false and mischievous Legislation that may be in store for ?us.

We come now to that portion of our essay in which we have to treat of the hurtful species of humbug,; and where can we find an apter illustration of it thar* in the notorious Phineas Taylor Barnum ? Who can contem plate this Napoleon of entrepeneurs without a sort of sublime amazement ? As a professor of humbug he leaves the Wizard of the North with his inexhaustible bottle far behind : he glories too in his science. At a public din ner he proposes the toast, ' Success to Humbug.' He lectures to agricultural labourers on the Philosophy of Humbug. He inhabits a splendid mansion called Iran istan, which means, we imagine, Humbug Palace. He stares the public in the face, and thrusting his tongue into his cheek, coolly says, ' Friend public, you are a mighty big simpleton.'

On the 27tli of October General D'Allonville, with 24 battalions, 32 squadrons, and 56 pieces of artillery, ad vanced on the road from Eupatoria to Simpheropol as far as the ravine of T^hobatar. He found the Russians firmly established on the opposite side of this ravine, where they have thrown up entrenchments, defended by 36 guns, all 32-pounders, some shots fired frovn them at long range, reached our rank, and struck down several men and horses. Every attempt made to draw the enemy out of their strong position and bring them to an engagement proved unsuccessful.

FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 4 February 1856

FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. ( From the Post-Ampt Gazette , 23 rd of October.) The Russian army having been encouraged by the ar rival of fresh reinforcements, does not think of quitting the Crimea. General Melnikoff has arrived at Simphe ropol from tnc northern forts. He is to superintend the works in progress for fortifying that 'place, which, it appears, is to form the pivot of all the operations of Geneaal Gortschakoff in the Crimea. On the 18th General Gortschakoff reviewed all the cavalry at Simpheropol. Among them were the grenadiers of the Guard, recently arrived. The general has received an intimation that the Emperor and the Grand Duke have renounced their inten tion of visiting the Crimea. The Grand Duke Constantine felt averse to quit the threatened coasts of the Liman, and prevailed on the Emperor to remain at Nicolaieff. It is, in fact, the more important that the Emperor and the Grand Duke should remain there, that the small steamers and the gunboats of the Allies have appea...
