VOLUNTEERING AND PHYSICAL EDUCATION. (FROM THE SATURDAY REVIEW, JULY 7.) [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 2 October 1860

VOLUNTEERING AND PHYSICAL EDUCATION. (fIÎOM THE SATURDAY REVIEW, JULY 7.) The importance of extending the volunteer movement till It has reached all classes of society, and become a recognised part of the permanent institutions of the country, is uni- versally admitted, but the practical difficulties which surround the question.and the best means of dealing with them, have hardly been con« sidered with the attention which they deserve. There can be no doubt that one of the principal sources of the movement has been the taste which is inherent in almost all classes of Englishmen for athletic amusements; and, though patriotism has undoubtedly had a great influence on the matter, it would be unreason- able to hope that mere patriotism will be of itself sufficient to sustain it, unless it is com- bined with the gratification of the less elevated, though perfectly legitimate and healthy, motive. No one can foretel the turns and twists which foreign politics may take. Many events may be i...

ADELAIDE. Thursday. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 2 October 1860

ADELAIDE. Thursday. The Stewart exploring party returned to town from the Far North District. They have been to latitude 18° 47', and longitude 138°, being 1100 miles north, but were obliged to return on account of the fierceness of the natives. The party suffered from scurvy. Friday. Stewart's party only consisted of three persons or he would have got across. It has been sug- gested in Council that Government should assist him to go again ; it will be seen that his furthest point was 2° further than Gregory's South.   Flour remains at £17.

NAPOLEON'S INTENTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 3 October 1860

NAPOLEON'S ' INTENTIONS. Another fresh pamphlet baa been published in Parissaii toforesbadowNapoleon's intentions with regard to the Rhine bouadary question. The following extracts are furnished to the Times by its Paris Correspondent; I alluded very briefly yesterday to the new pamphlet La Politique Anglaise, and, as there is something in the iorm.the quality of the paper, and the type which reminds me of former pub- lications of a similar kind the official character of which has never been seriously disputed, I yield to the temptation of returning to the sub* ject. La Politique Anglaise is anonymous; ! and is, as you are aware, addressed to Lord Palmerston. Among other tilings, it dwells on the fact that, iu the event of Russia seizing Constantiuopleaud holding the Dardanelles,Eng laud must necessarily fall to the rank of a second-rate Power ; that there is now no serious illwill on the part of France against Russia, for Russia has inspired France with esteem, and France returns i...
