AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 27 October 1856

AMERICA. Tho Th'rites correspondent writing from New Tort; oil the 9th July, says The action of the Uritish Government in concluding^ to acquiesce in tho dismissal of Mr. Crampton has pro duced a beneficial effect in tho United States. What has been done has greatly raised England in the estimation of tho Americans. It is supposed in Washington, nnd will probably appear 111 some future correspondence, tnat mm v/o%ernmeuD wcro led into error us to the purposes of tho iiritioH Government, by tho suppression of despatches. Yon know that Lord Clarendon's offer of arbitration 011 tlio Central American question was not communicated for months after it was received by the Minister. Had it bsen with the Cabinet beforo the message was sent in to Congress, the tone of that instrument would have been modified.

Honors are daily showered upon him ; and, although lie does not indulge in set speeches, ho Repeats himself as ljttle us a gentlemen can be expected to do' who must, in his expression! of thanks, necessarily traverse muen ot tne same ground again. But we observe that the burden ol General W illiums1 after-dinner speeches is the cultivation of tho military art. ' Woe to that nation which, having riohos, neglects to protect them !' This idea, constantly kept before the public, must in tbe nature of things infiumr the military ardour with which people, usually sober-minded, are now so unaccountably si, -zed. Even the lending journal is advocating some place in tho outskirts of London, superior to Hyde Park, as a seen- of military training and evolutions; 'War has proved uvery successful game for General Williams.
