THE DESIGNS OF GARIBALDI. [TIMES, AUGUST 21ST.] [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 16 October 1860

i THE DESIGNS OP GARIBALDI. [TIMES, AUOUST 21ST.] The fate of Italy for tho present, and no one can presume to say for how long, depends upon the answer which will be given to a very simple ques tion,-What are tho ultimate intentions of Gari- baldi, and of the party of whick he is the leader? Wo know where they begin; wo want to know whero thoy intend to stop. If wo could get an answer to this question, it would not bo difficult to cast tho horoscope of tho Italian Peninsula. There are four Powers whose opinions wall have more or less weight in deciding the futuro destiny of Italy. France, Austria, Sardinia, and the revolutionary movement as represented by Garibaldi, all assert theil' claim to be considered, and all can, in some degree, influence the momen- tous result.

From the time that a single State ...

THE LATE JOHN DUNN, ESQ., M.P. LETTERS received by the friends of the late Mr. Dunn have placed thom in possession of some of the particulars connected with his decease. It ap- peal's that he was visited with sun-stroke during the passage of the Red Sea, and that his illness was aggravated by the extremely confined and crowded condition of the vessel in which this part of the route was made, if not originally attributable to that circumstance. Mr. Dnnn's illness lasted but two days, and during the whole of that time he,was speechless, nis melancholy death caused a deep sensation on board. It was at first contemplated to convey his re- mains back to England, for interment, but this was found impracticable, and the Cemetery at Aden was then selected for his final place of rest Mrs. Dunn who returned to her friends took with ber the whole of Mr. Dunn's papers and effects.
