LATEST INTELLIGENCE. London, Friday Afternoon, May l8, 1860. LANDING OF GARIBALDI AT MARSALA— SICILY IN ARMS. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 9 July 1860
LATEST INTELLIGENCE. London, Friday Afternoon, May 18, 1800. LANDING OF GARIBALDI AT MARSALA SICILY IN ARMS. Our intelligence up to the present time respect- ing Garibaldi's expedition to Sicily, to which we re- fer at considerable length elsewhere, may be thus summarised. We know that he embarked at Genoa, on the night of the 5th of May, in two steamers belonging to a mercantile firm, and ap- propriated by him in the name of tho national cause, accompanied probably by somo promise of indemnity. Tho gallant partisan took with liim a baud of men equally gallant and devoted, his com panins in former ventures, and recruited from all ranks and classes of men. Their number has been estimated as low as 1500 and as high as 2000 and oven 3000, but unless the steamers are large the latter numbers must be exaggerations. On tho 7th May the expedition was offTelamona on the Roman frontier, and some of them landed there to seek necessaries which they had, in their hurry to em- bark at Genoa, for...

THE MERCURY. MONDAY MORNING, JULY 9, 1860. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 9 July 1860
THE MERCURY. MONDAY MORNING, JULY 9, 1860. We wish to offer one or two remarks on a practice connected with the Electric Telegraph Department which is becoming somewhat too prevalent. We do this the more readily be- cause we feel persuaded that a few moments' cool reflection will convince those who indulge in it that their conduct is not consistent with the character they wish to maintain, and be- cause it is extremely annoying and unfair to- wards the officers of the department. Our observations have not been elicited by the bear- ing which the practice we are about to condemn has upon our own interests. We procure our intelligence for the public, and it can matter but very little whether an item or two of that in- telligence oozes out a few moments &nbsp; before our extra is issued or not. But &nbsp; the consequences to the Superintendent of Telegraphs, were be inadvertently to forget himself, might be very serious ; and it is manifestly, therefore, most unfair to ...

&lt; In addition to tho above telegraphic intelli- gence wo give the following from the English papers to hand, devoting to their contents and to our London Letter the whole of our avilablo space : Rumours of a coming Conference havo been again set afloat, within the last few days. The grounds on which they ave said to rest would seem to imply that our Ministers have given up the main question, npun which it, was originally supposed a Conference was to he called together ; and that they are now ready to assist in carry- ing out tho views of France. When a Confer- ence was talked of in the first instance, the an- nexation of Savoy was understood to be the subject which the Ministers of the various Powers were to take into consideration. Ac- cording to the last rumour, however, the annex- ation is to be accepted as a fait accompli, and the neutralisation of Chablais and Faucigny is to be substituted as the basis upon which the diplomacy of Europe is invited to meet. This is ve...

LATEST EUROPEAN NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 10 July 1860
IATEST EUROPEAN NEWS, The Cotton Supply Association held its annual meeting at Manchester on the 12th of May. Speeches were delivered by gentlemen who were able to give evidence of the successful cultivation of cotton in India, Australia, East and West Africa, the Feejee Islands, and the West Indies. The facility with which money can be raised in England for charitable purposes is very gra- tifying. A very short time back it was an- nounced that the London Hospital had lost about £1500 a year by the falling in of tho Annuities which ceased this year. It was therefore neces- sary, if the hospital was to distribute its bene- volence to the same extent as heretofore, that a capital sum producing this amount should be collected from the public. The result is that a sum exceeding in amount £24,000 has been subscribed. Captain Vine Hall, appointed to the command of the Great ship, is the brother of the Kew Newman Hall, of Surrey chapel, London. Cap- tain Hall has had an immense experience...
