BELGIUM AND FRANCE. [TIMES.] [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 10 October 1860

BELGIUM AND FRANCE. fuaiES.] No public document of late given to the world deserves more general attention than the address to the King which was unanimously voted by the Belgian Chamber of Deputies on Wednesday last. For some years the friends of national independence have had much to discourage them. The most powerful Conti' nental nation has thrown aside the institutions which united it to the more advanced and peace- ful States of Europe, and, having returned to the most primitive form of government, yields to the primitive instincts of am- bition. It is needless for us to allude to the disquiet which now reigns among the neighbours of France. When a certain class of English politicians would persuade their hearers that our preparations for defence are suggested by a foolish mistrust, the work of a jobbing aris- tocracy and a venal press, we would point to the countries on tho north-east frontier of Franco, and ask bow It is that States so unlike us and eaoh other as Prussia, Ba...

THE IRISH BRIGADE IN ITALY. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 10 October 1860

THE IRISH BRIGADE IN ITALY. Tile following account of the real condition of the Irish Brigade iu Italy, has been pub- lished in the London Times : For several months past the Irish ' press has been teeming with news relative to the organi- zation, to the progress, and to the (glorious) prospects of the Irish Brigade. The Nation in particular seems to be deeply iuterested iu all the concerns of the Brigade, for its columns have been filled every week with letters and pamphlets and most glowing productions, both in prose and verse, lauding those young men to the stars who have allowed themselves to be duped by it and other interested parties into forsaking their comfortable homes and going to Italy. But ad rem. I was one of those fools who was-trepanned by tho glow and glitter of those sweeping assenions that I saw in the JVa tion, about three months since, when it was suggested by some enthusiastic supporter of the Papal Temporal Government that it would be a grand thing for Ii eland...

HOW TO GET THROUGH LEGIS LATION. (FROM THE TIMES JULY 25.) [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 10 October 1860

HOW ,TO GET THROUGH LEGIS LAT10N. (FROM THE TIMhS JDLY 25.) The House of Commons seems to have arrived at that period which most of us must reach sooner or later, when, having survived the illu- sions of our youth and the ambition of our middle life, we sit down on the dull and cheerless threshold of our old age and plunge our looks back into tho vista that wc have passed through. Then, at length, do we arrive nt a full con- sciousness of the opportunities wo have flung aside, of the friends wc have alienated, and of the errors we have committi-d. Bemorse avails us little, und good resolutions have small space left for, their accomplishment. Something similar, we suspect, is the case with the House of Commons. They have had their fling, they have indulged themselves in the full licence of endless talk, they have added column to column and saturated themselves and the public with interminable discussion ; and now, after this mighty waste of words, the time has come for them to take s...

TO THE ELECTORS OP THE MUNICIPALITY OP SPRING BAY AND PROSSERS PLAINS. [Per favor of the Mercury.] As one, who is, and feels so much interest in the advancement of our District, I hope you will manifest j-our good judgment in selecting men ia every sense fitted to carry out your new under- taking. Be sure to look at men, avoid all partiality and prejudices. Receive men for their actions not for their promises, before you give your vote . ask yonr-iolvos the question, what have they done for us? for by the past you may judge for the future. Do give U3 moa that will work, not men that neither work nor will let others work. _ My views are that in .all infant institutions, it matters not whether it is'the coloni- as a whole, or divided into sectional jiorts. As much as possible avoid all costly ornameñts,at least for the first hundred years. Expressly attend to works of reproduction, as far as we are concerned.
