RIFLE ASSOCIATIONS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 15 October 1860

RIFLE ASSOCIATIONS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. AR National, International, and Colonial Rifle Matches seem to be very much in vogue now, I see no cause why we should not follow so laudable an example. The Enfield rifle is now in the hands of hundreds of our Volunteers, who will soon begin to practico with ball cartridge. Tho system of education of all kinds iu tho present day is to endeavor to awaken interest and ardour in tho student by emulation and com- petition. This object might bo effected in Tasmania, as far as rifle practice is concerned, by the institution of a Grand Tasmanian Rifle Match, open to all residents in the Colony who could attend such a meeting. The formation of Rifle Associations in all the principal districts would seem to bo tho first steps to be taken in securing what appears to mo to be a pleasant way of proinoting.or at least encouraging, proficiency in rifle practice. Your obedient Servant, I DOUGLAS T. KHiBURN. H. T. V. Artillery Company. 3, Davey-str...

NARROW ESCAPE.-A little boy about tour years of age, son of Mr. Stevenson, butcher, Elizabeth street narrowly escaped being killed on Saturday afternoon. It seems that Mr. Bateman, Livory stablo keeper was driving quietly up the street when the child got before the wheel and was knocked down, the wheel passing completly over the little fellow. Mr. Willing ran to the cart and took the horse on as the animal which hod been pulled up was backing towards the child, and immediately took the boy to Dr. Doughty^ when it was disco- vered that most providentially no serious injury had been inflicted. W. A. Guesdon & Co. have requested us to remind the trade of their sale this day at 2 for half past.of cattle per Macquarie, and sheep ex Creole. The former we beliove are a weighty and choice lot, the vessel having hod a very quick run, and the latter are represented as being part cf the same flock as those per Gold Seeker sold a short time since.-(ADVT).

SICILY AND NAPLES. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 15 October 1860

,{SICILY AND NAPLES. The special correspondent of the Times furnishes the following curious information respecting the journey made by Garibaldi to the island of Sardinia before his invasion of Calabria. Very shoitly after Garibaldi's arrival at Messina several of the most prominent patriots of the Pon- tifical possessions came over here (Messina) to combine a plan of attack on the Pontifical pro- vinces. It was decided that it should take place simultaneously with the descent on the continent, about the middle of this month. Six thousand men had been collected and prepared for this coup, and an insurrection was at the Bame time to break out in the Papal States. The 6000 men were to bo taken in batches to the island of Sardinia, and then bo fetched by steamers from Palermo and thrown across the mainland.Dr. Bertani, Garibaldi's well-known agent at Genoa, carno down to announce that the 6000 men destined for 'the expedition to the Papal States were ready.

VISIT OF THE PRINCE OP WALES.TO THE NORTH AMERICAN PROVINCES. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 15 October 1860

VISIT OF THE PRINCE OP WALES.TO THE "" NORTH AMERICAN PROVINCES. Early in August we beard of the arrival of Hie Prince oi Wales at St. John's,Newfoundland. The correspondence which has since reached us from America is full of accounts of the unprecedented " sensation" which the approach of his highness was creating throughout the whole country. The pitch which the general excitement has reached may be pretty well conjectured from such prasages as the following:-"You can't take up a paper," writes a correspondent of the Times, from Halifax, "with- out finding it full of acrostics on the prince's name, anecdotes of his childhood, or predictions of a future glory which shall equal that of his royal mother, whose name, be it said, is never mentioned, either here or in the United States, but iu such terms of reverence and admiration as an English- man feels proud and glad to hear. Even in adver- tisements, the prince's name or title is mysteriously associated with tho Halifax national di...

THE RURAL MUNICIPALITIES ACT. TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY.

P. ' Apsley, Great Swanport, October 4th, 1860. MY DEAR SIR,-I see by the Mercury that you have had another meeting at Sorell to consider the propriety of petitioning the Governor to proclaim your district a Municipality. I think you are per- fectly right and commendable in the stand you make against the introduction of the Act for I pre- sume your district like Glamorgan is not ripe either in property or population for tho introduction of self-government, for it is well-known that the machinery necessary to govern a small and wide spread community like Glamorgan, is much more expensive in comparison than the governing a pop- ulous district, consequently the expense will fall heavy upon the few rat...
