THE INEXPEDIENCY OF MARITIME ARSENALS. [FROM THE ECONOMIST, JULY 14.] [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 11 October 1860

THE INEXPEDIENCY OF MARITIME ARSENALS. [PEOM THE ECONOMIST, ítttV l4/j It seems certain that We do 'too much on the sea coast. We have concentrated at .our great naval stations. Bitch as Portsmouth and Plymouth, not only the machinery Uoedful for constructing ships and repairing ships, but also our depots, of naval storcB, our victualling yards, our rope yards, and I our timber yards ; wo have made of them not only naval docks, which they must be, but naval arsenals, great storehouses of material, which Uley need not be. Wo have not only put together there our ships of war, but we havo manufactured lhere all the multifarious and complicated gear that belongs to those ships. We have done on the seâ-cofcst not only that which can be done nowhere else, but much also which could bo done evorywhere else, if not quite so conveniently, yet) on the whole, substan- tially as well. We have, in truth, half forgotten that the sea coast is our exposed frontier, and it is very natural that wo sho...

ITALIAN UNITY. [FROM THE TIMES 13 JULY.] [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 11 October 1860

ITALIAN UNITY. - [FnOif tfrfB TIMES 13 JÜXY.] , '[ Italian unity was two years ago the wild dream of distempered minds. It was a-S'ciated with secret societies and daggers und mysterious assassinations. To-day it is passing tío ntpldly from a state of fiction into a state of renhty that the world's belief can hardly keep pate wi1 h its progress. We are olliged continually to re- mind ourselves that the 1st of January, 1859, was the beginning of all things, that we have only just seen the first anniversary of the Battle of Solferino, that the Peace of Villafranca is. but twelve months old, that the possession by Pied* mont of all Lombardy and the Duchies, and of Tuscany, and of a good part of the Slate» of the Church,is a thiigof yesterday. The, pace is tremendous. We should like to stand still for a moment and realize this new state: of ,things and collin the consequences; butnr» such pause is allowed us.

THE ORGAN AT ST. ANDREW'S. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 11 October 1860

I THE ORGAN AT ST. ANDREW'S. Peruai'o at no period in ecclesiastical history has the fact of tho relations between the intellectual and the' emotional, in man viewed as a religious being, received a more rational recognition than the present. In the mutual protests ofantagonistic theories and forms of worship, the harmony of truth has been often obscured, and sacrificed to ex- tremes. The early result of tho Reformation, iu countries and amongst sections of the Christian Church where the doctrines of the new faith were carried out to what was regarded at the time to be their legitimate lengths, was to divorce Worship | from Art j to make the service of the Sanctuary a purely intellectual act, and to unclothe it of all those accessories by which in the gorgeous rites of Catholicism the senses of man had been impressed and' his material emotions called into play. Amongst tlie aids to worship which the zeal of this ardent Protestantism proscribed, was the instru- mental music which had...

Slionld the House of Commons ever want this style of decoration,- it will find it in its own abandoned measures. At the begin- ning of July it invariably happens that some score oí unexceptionable and healthy Bills, against which hardly a word has been spoken or a suspicion of their vitality expressed, suddenly cease to exist and are no more. A sort of falling sickness seizes the whole crowd. Like traders keeping up appearances to the last, they show themselves in the Notices one day and are gazetted as dropped measures the next. It is commonly called " the massacre of the inno- cents ;" but in July a Bill lus generally seen a good deal of the world, knows its right hand from its left, and has natural longings for matu- rity and work It would be more proper to take our images fr...

ALTERED TONE OF DIPLOMACY. (roan Tilla TIMES, JULY. 11') Foreign affairs, and the way in which they arc treated by politicians, seem at present to partake of a kind of brusqueness to which they were formerly stranger»« Under the guidance of Wellington and Louis Philippe, Metternich and Nesselnde* th .European machine worked easily. Its action w'as stew} it sometimes uceracd almost to cease altogether, «na when in motion there was plenty of oil and plenty J skilful engineers. Excepting the absorption of Cracrow, no serious breach Was made in the European system for many years before '48, and the despatches of Secretaries and Ambassadors were written with all thetagueness and decorum of a Queen's speech. But in these times thero aro more stirring events, and statesmen of a less , urbane character. The Emperor Napoleon has tom some treaties, and is vehemently suspected of meditating evil to others.
