SARAWAK. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 16 October 1860

SARAWAK. ? Advices of rather disheartening tenor have been received from that settlement respecting the lighting between Mr. Brooke's party and the dwellers on the Uiver Oyak and Moka ; it appears they had been fighting for ten days, without ceasing, but Mr. Brooke did not appear to have made any impvession on his antagonists. The Dyaks were all out in quest of heads, and it was expected there would be hot work. Somff Musahor, tho murderer of Messrs. Fox and Steel-;, is said to be in Labuan, and we hope the authorities there will be able to give a I good account of him.

WK have enid that- the attitude of England, amid the complications and menacing posture of public aiïuirs throughout Europe, is simply de- fensive.
