(To the Editor of the ' Illawarra Mercury")   Sir— Seeing in your issue of Monday last a letter from your Kiama correspondent, headed 'Delay of the Mil,' reflecting in very strong terms on my conduct in negat ing to give notice to the Post Office authorities of our intention to lay the Kiama up for the purpose of cleaning. Now, sir, your correspondent, before making a charge of reprehensible conduct against me, should have been cer- tain I was guilty. On the contrary, I am prepared to prove that I gave full notice in the usual way; and can state with confidence that it has always been my endeav our to accommodate and oblige all, so much so, that on   arrival I have always sent my steward with the mail to   the Post Office, a practice which another such unfounded   statement will put a stop to. He also asserts that if the company were well paid for carrying the mails, I would have been more particular. Now, I challenge your cor resp...

The Australian Colonies. VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 20 October 1856

€\\t Ittsfalian Cnlottifs. VICTORIA. The following are the most interesting items of news to the 10th instant: — Dr. Thomson, Mayor of Geelong, has been committed for a libel on Mr. Bailey, ed.tor of the Geelong Observer. The libel was contained in a bill bearing the Mayor's name, which was generally circulated through the town before the election, and in which Mr. Bailey was called a ' filibuster.' and a ' hunn-rv loafer.' and the passage. ' Judas is ready, his palm itches for the thirty pieces of silver.' Evidence was given that the words ' filibuster,' and ' loafer,' are libellous. The former was explained to be a Yankee-Spanish version of the English word 'freebooter,' and filibustering being a capital crime. The word 'loafer,' was explained to bo synonymus with ' vagrant.' Considerable interest, seems to be excited in Geelong by the eu3e, from tho prominence of the parties. The people do not seem generally to approve of Mr. Bailey, s course, and seem to think that the Mayor wou...
