Another nugget has been obtained in Wicklow by the same parties who found the former one. It is said to weigh 21bs. of pure gold. Pauperism has decreased so much that in the Carlow union the guardians have dispensed with a poor rate. The Equinoctial gales have been unusually severe. From all parts the accounts of the disasters at sea are serious. Mr. Alderman Finnis had been elected Lord Mayor of London, The new Sheriffs' elect were Mr. J. J.

SHELLHARBOR STEAM NAVIGATION. (To the Editor of the "Illawarra Mercury.") [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 15 December 1856

. SIIELLH ARBOR STEAM NAVIGATION. (To tho Editor of tlio ' Jllfiw.-irra Mercury.') Sir — Your correspondent ' Subscriber' is a little un— - reasonable in anticipating the evil effects of a monoply. Should tho steamer bo placed in the hands of local pro prietary, the roverso is fairly to bo anticipated, and 'Subscriber ' might bo expected to wait tlio result of tho experiment. Should tho local proprietary tax themselves and tho public too harshly, it will then be timo enough to cry out and seek a remedy ; but probably Subscriber' prefers the control of the stonmers in the hands of stran gers who have no community of interest with us. As to tho largo steamers calling at an open roadstead, it has been tried and found impracticable. I understand it is contemplated to malto a good road from Shellharbor to Kiama, with a punt at tbo Aluni murru \ — this will bring Shellharbor within 6 or 7 miles from Kiama harbor — about tho distance of Charcoal from Wollongoug. i Such facility, with moder...

RETRENCHMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 15 December 1856

?RETRE N OlIilE N T. Money, as the -measure :of price and the medium of exchange, is the great motive power in political economy, and is equally effective for good or bad ends. It is for this reason that it is the chief element in all sorts of corruptions, abuses, and defalcations. 'When all men': become, pure' minded, they -will cease, in .great -measure, -to Le influenced-! hy. montfy, and will do things simply ;nnd only be cause they are right, and tend. to. promote the. i -highest -modes of human happiness. But that, liiillennium does .--not yet -even 'da«Mi. . -Moneys must therefore be allowed to keep its. vplace as the i great instrument of benefit and mischief, and only, such checks interposed as social order can supply.' In a right state of public Government, under a .just and well balanced -system, the checks which prevent corruption and abuses are many ; but in every wrong system checks are more or less iv anting, and then consequently, as the effects of ?uncontrolled huma...

Surely it is high time 'tlmt independent electors indicated their right of being honestly represented, and as the present member for St. Vincent promised to resign on being requested to do so, it would be nothing but fair and just to the interests of the district, to call upon him, who Iiur betrayed his trust, to resign the high honor conferred by the public.

' Tiib Uses of the Atmosphere. -The products of combustion, whatever the Mature of the material, may he said in general 'terms to consist of carbonic acid and water ; and when Vre Consider the manifold sources from ?whence these proceed — the immense quantities of fuel consumed in our manufactories and at our domestic hearths — the conviction cannot be withelil, that unless Nature provide some counter acting influence, a substance so deadly in its eiFects and so insidious in its attacks as carbonic acid gas, must accumulate in our atmosphere to an extent which would soon prove destructive to animal life. But combustion, in the ordinary acceptation of the term, is not the only source from whence this j gas emanates ; we carry about with us an apparatus J which, sleeping or waking, is unceasingly em- ; ployed in its generation.

FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 15 December 1856

FRANCE. The Fnance Minister has appointed a commission to prepare a measure to be laid before the Corps Legislatif next session, for a new assessment of the land-tax. I11 the course of years, owing to the changes in the value of property, it has naturally come to pass that many estates are very heavily burdened, while the charges on others are light in comparison. It is given out that the effect of the new measure will be to relieve a great many pro prietors by equalising the charges. The Government has forbidden the provincial newspapers to discuss the question of the union of the two branches of the Bourbon family. Marshall Pellissier is said to be very savage with the Goverment for not having made him Governor-General of Algeria, his title and his pension of 100,000 fr. (.£4, 000) a year are, in his eyes, not sufficient to compensate for the loss of that dignity which lias been the ambition of his life. The Government, however, was afraid to confer it on him on account of the ind...

Lord Stanley, who distinguished himself at Bristol lately 011 the subject of reformatories for the juvenile criminal population, lias last week added to his laurels by an equally excellent lecture on a very opposite subject — -agriculture. What ever he touches he turns to gold. On this occasion his Lordship presided at the dinner of the North Lancashire Agricultural Society, and gave the body which he addressed some excellent advice on the subject of drainage, manures, and the applica tion of machinery to the soil. There was one passage at the close of his ad dress relative to the laboring sons of the soil which was so excellent in sentiment that we cannot resist the temptation to quote it — Lord Stanley said : '...
