POLICE PROTECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 10 November 1856

, -' - ? . ' -TOIJRJHI'KUTKUTiUN: ? Os-refkrenck to the Estimates for 1857, laid before tlie Assembly last week by Jlr. PakkKr, vie find several alterations — reductions and addi tions — in the police arrangements for these dis tricts. The Clerks of the Bench at 'Wollongong and Tfinmn are rfisnentivelv subie-!tpil to r rpfliinlion in their salaries. The latter's duties are also reduced by the appointment of a Clerk to the Bench at Shoalhnven. This appointment is, no doubt, a timely and judicious one. But we cer tainly think that Mr. Parker has commenced economizing at the wrong end. There are numerous holders of high offices whose salaries could, and should, be curtailed. Both the occu pants of these offices are fully worked. The duties they have to discharge are various and numerous enough to completely occupy their time and task their abilities. The talents and acquirements they must possess to discharge these duties efficiently surely deseive a higher remuner ation- than that bes...

BRIDGE OVER THE MACQUARIE. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 10 November 1856

BRIDGE OVER THE MACQUARIE. Tjie want of this structure has been tmmis Idkeably manifested during the lp.te heavy rains. The mails could not be brought from the south ward on last Saturday week, or on last Thursday. Independent of this it deters v and .delays all communication betwen either ends of the district v/jth the other. This was particularly the case Jast week, when there were many persons from ? Shoalhaven and other places to the southward of the river, in 'Wollongong1 for the purpose of witnessing the annual races. The consequences to them wore, that they were detained in Wollon ? gong for several days, and subjected to a loss of time, and the incurring of «xtra expenses. This is only one instance in which the necessity ' 'for a bridge has been, and is constantly being, exemplified. This is no new grievance. It has been ncknow '*. ' Jeged not only by those who sufl'er from it, but ky the legislature. 'Ihe money has been voted, and the necessity for the work thus acknowleged...
