A CATHOLIC VIEW OF THE VANSITTART CASE. [FROM THE WEEKLY FREEMAN'S JOURNAL.] [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 6 October 1860
A CATHOLIC VIEW OF THE VANSITTART CASE. I [fbom the weekly fäeeman's jouenal.J Young Master Vansittart has made a noise in the world. He has created that great wan1 among certain ennuied classes a-sensation ! What a terrible and revolting talo was that of Master Van ; and so well did it cohere in all its parts- -so artfully wero the circumstances and conversations fitted together, that even the sago Times was seduced into a belief that the story was true, and that Canon Dalton, Father Clery, and the Italian Priest with the flowing robe and peaked hat, had " confederated and conspired' to rob the respectable member for Windsor of his son. The Times wroto 3undry articles on the "dark conspiiacy," and when Father Clery, in a letter which cou« vinced every candid mind, proved that he neither " marked" the young gentleman for a victim, or concealed him, or was privy to his concealment, or consented to surrender his prey only after the father had threatened him with legal proceedings ; no...

PORTUGAL AND PORT WINE. (FROM THE DAILY NEWS.) [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 6 October 1860
PORTUGAL AND POUT WINE. (]?r.OJt TUE DAILY NEWS.) The policy of the Portugese Government, with regard to the wines of the Alto-Douro, has beon suicidal. Narrow restrictions and disastrous monopolies, and all tho scandalous arts to which men who nie fettered in the performance of their daily duties have recourse, have marked the period during which the famous " General Wine Company for the Agricultura of tho Wines of the Douro" has »overned at Oporto. The' wine-grow- er of the Alto-Douro is beset with restrictions at every turu. He is not allowed to export as ho pleases. The production of the Alto-Douro wine district is limited to one artificial quality for exportation to England ; bonce au artificial scarcity and an enhanced prk) i. There is an absurd system in force which declares that either the upper or the lower part of tho wiue in one and the same vat shall bo shipped to England under heavy imposts, while the other part eau be shipped free of export duties to the Ameri- can and...

THE MERCURY. SATURDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 6TH, 1860 [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 6 October 1860
THE MERCURY. SATURDAY MORNING, OCTOBER Otk, 18Ü0 Me. Horne has ceased to occupy a seat on the Bench of the Supreme Court. His resig- nation was forwarded yesterday to His Üxcel» lenct. His Honor lost no time ia availing himself of the permission to retiro without de- triment to his personal interests, accorded to bim by the Act to which Sir Henry Young gave the royal assent on Thursday. The alac- rity with which this step, necessary to gire the I enactment of Parliament the force of law, was followed by Mr. Hohne's resignation, is pretty plain proof that the adjustment of a difficulty - most persons will call it more unreservedly the compromise-arrived at in this measure, was not a termination to it unwelcome to the Judge's own feelings, or adverse to his views of what was the most satisfactory settlement un- der the circumstances. Indeed why should any one think that tho Judge was ill pleased with what the Parliament had done and Sir Henry Young had ratifiod? It was Mr. Hohne's own...

A FRENCH OPINION OF THE VOLUNTEER REVIEW. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 6 October 1860
A FRENCH OPINION OF THE VOLUN- TEER REVIEW. The organ of the liberal Catholic party in France, the Ami de la Religion, publishes, from its own correspondent iu London, the following account of the review in Hyde Park, in which he renders full justice to the soldier like appear- ance, the perfect disciplino, and the other mili- tary qualities displayed by the volunteers at their review by Queen Victoria : " I can assure you that the grand demonstra- tion which all Loudon went to see iu Hyde Park on Saturday last surpassed by much in its sim- plicity all the reviews which I have seen. You will smile no doubt, accustomed as you are to the enormous masses and to the complicated evolutions of the camp of Chalons or of the Champ du Mars, at heaving me thus speak of some simple manoeuvres executed by 20,000 young men who were never eugaged ia action and who have been drilled for scarcely a few months. Nevertheless, I maintain that it was a grand sight as regards everything which constitute...
HAMILTON. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 6 October 1860
HAMILTON. BURGLARY.-- A ticket-of-leave holder, named John Allen, was apprehended a few days since by Mr. C.D.C. Madden for having broken into Mr. Cleland's licensed house. It appears that on the night of the 26th ult, Mr. Cleland locked up his house and retired to rest as usual. On the following morning he discovered that some person had gained access to some of the rooms and ransacked them. There is no doubt but that the fellow was disturbed, as not anything of value was taken away. Mr. Cleland immediately informed Mr. Madden of the cir cumstance, and in less than an hour from the tlime of receiving the information, the man was lodged in jail. Some articles identified by Mr, Cleland were found upon the prisoner.
THE CHAMPION ELEVEN v. ANOTHER ELEVEN OF ENGLAND. (FROM THE GENTLEMEN'S NEWSPAPER.) [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 8 October 1860
THE CHAMPION ELEVEN v. ANOTHEE ELEVEN OF ENGLAND. (fbok the oentmsmem's newspaper.) There is still force enough in the proverb that, " There are as good fishes in the sea as those ' taken out of it"-to serve our turn with refer- ence to the match above specified. It may be remembered by many, when the Eleven left England last year to instruct young America in the art of criokoting, that the players remain- ing in " our tight little island" were regarded as men of secondary importance. Somo there were, it is true, who stoutly opposed this notion, and a few wero bold enough to maintain then, what time has oonfirmed, viz , the truth of the provorb quoted. At the outset of the match tho prevailing opinion was in favour of " the Champion)»," and this is not to bt» wondered at, as eaeh and every man has, many a time and oft, displayed to critical crowds the science and material of his composition, Offing to much rain in the early part of last week, the' Trafford ground ,near Manchester, w...
ENGLISH AND FRENCH INSTITUTIONS. (FROM THE TIMES, JULY 17.) [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 8 October 1860
ENGLISH AND FBENCII INS'f ÍTÜTIONS. (FROM TnE TIMES, JIH.Y 17.) It may seom useless, if not ungracious, to dis- cuss so often French institutions, and to dwell upon the difference which prevails between France and England, or France as it is and as it was. But the subject is ono of importance, and not merely of curiosity. The rest of Con- tinental Europe is disposed to bow toor to imitóla France. Such a country, possessing all tiio itv fluonco of great strength and grcnt genii», pro.» pagErting* bei' idead by thepeu or by the sword, by the attractions of her1 manners or the fi- nesse of her intrigue, must always be an object of interest to surrounding nations. At present France is an object of painful interest to all. She is a cause of endless expense to ourselves. It is worth while to consider how far her own people are satisfied with the path which their powerful ruler has marked out for them. Those English-fewer in number now than some five years ago-who are disposed to draw comp...
THE MASSACRE OF THE CHRISTIANS. [FROM THE TIMES, 18TH JULY.] [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 8 October 1860
THE MASSACRE Oí* THE CHRISTIANS. Tfrom the TIMES, Í8TH JDXY.i According to the last news from Syria- the Druses and Maronites have come to an agree» ment which is dignified by the name of a treaty of peace. In other words, the murderers of Zableh and Damascus, frightened by the appear- ance of European vessels on the coast and con- scious that their deeds would bring on them a speedy vengeance from the Christian nations, have refrained for the present from the extermination of their opponents, and are willing that their own crimes should be forgot- ten. Such a conclusion of this history would, no doubt, be grateful to the Cruses, to delin quent Turkish commanders, and even to the Sublime Porte itself,.but it is not likely that the Western Powers will accept any such settle ment of the affair. It is, indeed, rather too much for the patience of Europe that a savage and pagan tribe should suddenly arm, gather round it all the wild and mischievous spirits o' a region, c irry fire and sw...
