NEWS OF THE DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 1 December 1856

NEWS OF THE DAY. {Abridged from the Daily 1'ost, 23 rd August.) The present political fermentation on the Con tinent, whatever its duration and ultimate results, betokens the transition from one order of things to another. It would be madness to suppose that, because there was a temporary re-action against till? nnnrnhv rnnspnnont unnii Mip swpnnincr fth.it tores of 1848, there could be anything like a permanent return to the institutions which had proved them selves inadequate to the wants of the present generation, and powerless to repress the discontent those wants had engendered. It was idle, indeed, to think that Ferdinand of Naples could resume at will the old State garments which had been out grown and cast off; and just as idle to suppose that he, a bigot by education, ' a tyrant from temperament, a Bourbon from birth, and an Austrian by irarriage, could be sincere in any one object save crushing, the liberties of his subjects. Sooner or later Italy must form one empire of s...
