PROPOSED SHELLHARBOR STEAM NAVIGATION COMPANY. (To the Editor of the "Illawarra Mercury.") [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 8 December 1856

PROPOSED SHELLHAUBOR STEAM NAVIGA TION COMPANY. (To the Editor of tlio ?' Iilawurra Mercury .') Sir — It is rumoured tliut negotiations are in progress between tho ' Illawarra' and the ' Kiama' Steam Navi gation Companies, with a view to their amalgamation (or purchase of one or other of tho companies' boats by either party) which, if effected, will render the traffic by sUaui on this coast a perfect monopoly, and will lead to a grout advance in fares and freights. As neither of thoss Companies condescend to call nt our port, it 1ms been suggested by several of the most influential settlers here, that a Company be forthwith formed, to be designated Sheliharbor Steam Navigation Company,' and a preliminary meeting is proposed to be held in a few days at the Steam Packet Hotel to discuss the matter, and to take such steps us may be necessary to establish the same. It is not intended that tho trade shall he confined to Sheliharbor, but that the bout or boats shall also call at Wollongou...

TO HENRY OSBORNE AND JOHN MARKS, ESQ5. (Por favor of tho ' Illawarra Mercury.')

I am well aware wo conferred tho honor on Mr. Marks without any desire on his part of us doing so, but I think the very fact that wo held him in such estimation is an additional reason why our interests should not ho neglected or betrayed. With Mr. Osborne, the case was different, he solicited our suf ferances, und I leave it to himself whether or not he lias fulfilled our ...

Cjjt ffittopolis. [FEOll ODE OW.V CORRESPONDENT.] Tho House of Assembly have sedulously applied them selves this week to the transaction of the public business, with less talking nnd more practical results than for some months | a-t. In a Committee of .Supply- on Wednesday, the immigration department came under review, and was generally condemned as far too expensive for the services pertormed. On the sum of ,£4S9- uein» proposed b_v the Colonial Secretary for the Sydney establishment, there wan much discussion, ill the course of which it was eon tended by several members, without distinction of party, that no large an establishment to distribute the immi grants «ho arrive here, the number of vessels not being more than fifteen in the year, is-n-.it- required, and that instead of fonrte n clerics two are sufficient. Ultimately 'the grunt was reduced to £1706, thin effecting a reduc tion, which, allowing £650 to tho Immigration Agent, will leave, only £1056 for the clerical duties. T...

Agriculture. RAISING POTATOES UNDER STRAW. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 8 December 1856

[?] RAISING POTATOES UNDER STRAW. ( From the Worcester [Canada] Palladium.) Several of our correspondents, within a year, have spoken favorably of the practice of planting potatoes and covering with Btraw, botli ns a less laborious and more profitable method of raising that crop. As long ago as 1824 we saw this method practised in Vermont, and it was reported highly successful, but for some rea nnn him nnt. oi.mn ilitn 'n'Miprn! hkb. Tile exnoriniL'llts \Ve saw tried were by selecting a short pasture field, and dropping the seed at suitable distances over the ground, and then covering the whole with a coat of straw to the depth of a foot or moro. In the fall, the straw was raked off and the potatoes picked up all dry. In wet seasons this plan was thought to be very effective. The editor of l'iko county (111.) — Free Frets — has been pre sented with potatoes raised the last season by a Mr. Shipman of that vicinity, and details us follows; — Sir. Sliipman informed us that he planted t...

CULTIVATION OF LIQUORICE. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 8 December 1856

CULTIVATION OF LIQUORICE. The following paper on the use and cultivation of liquorice, was read at the last monthly meeting of the Horticultural Improvement Society, by Mr. Frederick Creswick. ' It having recently come under my observation that liquorice, tho produco of & plant called Olycyrhxza glabra is used in this colony inconsiderable quantities lor medicinal and other purpuses, and that the whole supply has to be procured from foreign sources, while our climato and soil appear to bo peculiarly adapted for its cultivation, it occurred to me that by drawing tho attention of tho members of this society 'to tho subject somo useful infor mation might bo elicited, and somo of our horticulturists induced to cultivate a little, if only by way of experiment, when, if found profitable, tho cultivation may bo ex tended so as to render importation unnecessary, and thus save a considerable outlay, if not indeed eventually, pro- duco an income from its exportation.

? IHisrrllnimi. ? The Courtesies of Business Life. — Business mou who lny in a fair stock of civility will find ns good nu ivestment to draw, please, nnd retain customers ns they can make. The small civilities and courtesies of life are too often neglected by them. Wo have been taunted as a nation of shopkeepers, who, in our haste to bo ric1 , t'orget 10 only nroiu ieties, but moralities : we have been charged with idolatry, worshipping the almighty dollar, and the conduct of some among us hud given color to the charge. Let not the reproach longer remain. A nation immersed iu trade need not necessarily he forgetfulof the requirements of honor, uprightness, aud truth. A man in trade need not bo a boor, nor is he in anywise exonorated from extending towards his customers tho same suavities he would extend to guests in his house, to a stranger he is introduced to in company.

STATE SUPPORT TO RELIGION. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 8 December 1856

STATE SUPPORT TO RELIGION. In a journal strictly secular, we cannot take up the present subject upon religious grounds. Not withstanding this, its political relationship a-id social aspect, demands consii'e.'aiioii, as it is acknowledged by all parties to be one of the great questions in political science of the present time ; especially so in the colonies. We had cherished the hope, that after what had been said upon the hustings, and after the many declarations made by our leading statesman, as ' advocates of civil aud religious liberty,' that no ministry would have made the proposition for an increase, from the public treasury for the support of religion, -Such hopes, however, have been dis appointed; and we find that an increase is proposed of no less than £14,000. After such a preposterous proposition, on the part of a ' Liberal Government,' it surely becomes the advocates of freedom and progress to raise their voices and utter their protest against such an impolitic aud unjust...

TOPICS OF THE ASSEMBLY. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 8 December 1856

?TOHCS OF THE ASSEMBLY. The .Remittance System of Immigration has gained come estimation amougour statesmen, in preference to the system in vogue, and if it were acted on ?solely, or chiefly, it is probable that the country districts of the colony would experience a rapid course ol improvement. It is a common remark, . that what costs nothing is lightly esteemed and but little improved. The practice of making the colony bear the whole charge of'I immigration, tends' to imbue the immigrant with dispositions not very favorable to 'the -.purposes for which he is intro duced. If he had to pay his own expences he Would be better prepared to turn his new advantages to account, and would beccme indus trious and earnest in his subsequent course of life.

TO WOLLONGONG AND BACK. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 8 December 1856

TO WOLLONGONG AND BACK. Tho following truthful and entertaining sketch of a trip from the metropolis to Wollongong and back, is from tho pen of a literary gentleman who lately visited Illawarra. It appeared in tho Herald of Tuesday last* and we gladly give it additional publicity. Some fifteen or sixteen months ago, I had a very pleasant scamper through Illawarra, made a few 'Jottings' by the way, and registered a vow to become, as soon as possible, more intimately acquainted with this beautiful district. This vow, alas, like many another, re« mains as yet unfulfilled. But I have managed within tho Inst few days ta tako a trip to Wollongong and back, partly to seo how tho country looked after tho rain, and partly in the hope of deriving epigastric benefit from a few hours' tossing upon that turbulent mass of waters, jocularly called the Pacific, over which the path to Wollongong lira. In one respect my voyage was pre-eminently successful. The passage down was an unusually rough one ...
