THE NEW ZEALAND WAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 12 October 1860
THE NEW ZEALAND WAR. ALTHOUGH WO publish in another column a long telegram from tho Melbourne papers, purporting to convey intelligence of a vory startling character from the scat of war in New Zealand, our readers must bear in mind that the circum- stances to which this account refers, aro not new. Our previous dates from Taranaki were to the 14th ult.-the dato now quoted in the telegam. Full intelligence from New Plymouth to that day was published in the Mercury of tho 29th September, comprising a circumstantial account of the transactions spoken of: tho expedition of the troops against the rebel pahs, the retreat of the 1400 soldiers, and the return of the General commanding to town. The version of the affair given in the telegram is " from a correspondent," and ia evidently dictated by a spirit of what we may call savuge burlesque. The narrative of the same events which wo gave publicity to a fort- night back, written by the lespousibl e compilers of news for the public journals...

THE MERCURY. FRIDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 12TH, 1860. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 12 October 1860
THE MERCURY. FRIDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 12TH, 18ÜC VIEWED as a means of giving employment to labor, none of the public works yet projected in tho Colony possess the same claim to support as tho proposed Sorell Causeway,to provide fur the construction of which an Act has just been carried through Parliament. In public buildings we are aware that,however largo the amount of money expended, the sum paid in wages con- stitutes but a small proportion of tho whole. The greater part is consumed in tho purchase and importation of material, and a small number of men only, and those chiefly belonging to the i class of skilledartizans.arccngaged. Itissaidtbat there is no superabundance of labor of this kind in Hobart Town, and that to proceed rapidly in the erection of the great structures that have \>een planned.would render it necessary to bring over a considerable body of mechanics either from Launceston or from Melbourne. Admitting this to bo a correct representation, the circum- stances d...

A serious question of finance, which has been for some time afflicting' tho mind of the City, is this evening to .be solved and decided Rather late in the session aud tho summer, later still with regard to the danger, We are about to give our dockyards and araenalstheadditional defences rendered necessary by the modern improvements in the art of destruction. Putting the metropolis out of the question, except as to the approaches by the river, the Commissioners estimate the cost of their recommendations at nearly .£12,000,000. When, however, wo deduct works in progress or authorised, some other larg« item.-, and Hie cost ol armament and float- ing defends, seven o* ehjlit millions will be ne- cessary to carry out the general ideas of the Com- missioners. Ol' tliia a very large item is the pur- chase, and in some cases the repurchase of land. The total expenditure would naturally spread itself over four years, giving...
