Miscellanea. A SLAVE BARRACOON. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 22 December 1856

^IfafplfflltM A SLAVE BARRACOON. A Portuguese merchant, named Basilio de Cunha Reis, has been apprehended in New York, charged with being; engaged in the slave traffic. The affidavit on which the above arrest was effected was made by Andrew Wilson, one of the screw of the Altivie, beloneinfr to Reis. Wilson's state ment, which we take from the New York Times, is as follows : — ' I arrived in Boston in July, 1S55, from a three years' whaling voyage. The money in which I had been paid off — as the wages of sailors generally do — soon disappeared, and I was obliged to go again to sea. I engaged as seaman on board the schooner Mary E. Smith ; the captain told me the vessel was going to Montevideo, South America. We were not many days out before I discovered that the destination of tlie vessel had been misrepresented to me, and that, instead of going to South America, she was bound to the Coast of Africa, on a slaving expedi tion. I found that the same imposition had been practised upon ...

CALIFORNIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 22 December 1856

CALIFORNIA. We hnvo California papers to the Gth October. From the Steamer Bulletin of that (late, we extract tho follow ing summary ot events which had occurred during tho preceding fortnight : — The political campaign wns fairly opened for the season by A grand Kurhectiu held on tho 20th ult. at San Jose A large number ol cattle and iuiihiuIn rousted wholu were devoured, nnd tho Americans, republicans, and democrats, each had their speakers there to explain their respective principles. Besides posting tlio rfan Jose peo ple pretty thorough' upon political Miujecta no great results seem to have flown from it. A letter from Colonel Fremont in answer to one from the Editor of this paper, was received by tho last Hteiuner.

THE KIAMA BREAKWATER. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 22 December 1856

THE KIAMA BREAKWATER. The Assembly have rejected Mr. Marks' motion relative to this work, by a majority of 23 to 10. This result has been arrived at on anything but the merits of the claim. Some objected to the motion on the ground of its being introduced prematurely, others for want of information, and but two actually spoke of the work as unneces sary. Notwithstanding the present refusal, from the tone of the debate, tho obtaining of the Breakwater may now be looked upon merely as a question of time.

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 22 December 1856

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. We have advices from Adelaide to the 4th and 9th respectively by way of Melbourne: — Council is not likely to sit much longer, for after the Estimates are passed it is supposed that it will be pro rogued, or rather dissolved. We do not know yet whether ths Upper Houso or tho Lower will be first elected, and the Government are not sure whether they will settle tl-.e question previous to the end of the session. Most que-tioii3 are shelved till the new regime comes into operation. The harvest has begun in many districts. There were violent winds lately, which did considerable damage to tho corn on the Adelaide plains, by shaking it out and beating it down. Sales of wheat to be delivered in all December have been made at 6s., and for the first fortnight of January at 5s. 6d. ; and the purchasers are supposed to have made a good bargain at, these figures. The bakers have condescended to lower the price of the 2 lb. loaf to 5d. this week. His Excellency the Go\ernor'in-Ch...

PROCEEDINGS IN PARLIAMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 22 December 1856

. , ? . -PROCEEDINGS IN PARLIAMENT, ?Ministers find that their late session is an ??'- impracticable one, and require that it should extend into the new year. This ought all along, since the dissolution of the first Cabmct, to have been foreseen ; we do not know whether 5t was so or not. None of the -groat measures ?could be forced through both Houses in such a hurry : the requisite time was squandered in the strifes of party during the first half of the time usually allotted to a -session. Surely our ?statesmen will hereafter be wiser. A session invjch earlier in the year is a most desirable ?thing, and we do not see any insuperable ?obstruction to an alteration of the time. But the delays this time have not been accidental, and, therefore, are not excusable. Ministers -?ire very ready to assign the lateness of the ; ?'session as a reason for not completing their Undertakings'; but this is no excuse for them, ?since the loss of time has been occasioned solely \ 'by their own net an...

Hanging, with which, not long ago, the public ap peared to have got nearly disgusted, seems of luto to liavo in some measure recovered it's popularity, or rather it\s place in the affections of the educated and governing classes. The increasing employment of tho gallows will probably provo a stimulus to the attainment ot excellence 111 the executioner's department of high art ; and then as a necessary consequence, we shall have foreign ability invited to compete with ISritish talent. Application will naturally be mado to Germany ; but, we would suggest, chiefly to that particular portion ot l''atborland called Austria. A letter lias been written to a Genooso paper by General Garibaldi, stating that poor Ciciertiacchio, the popular orator of the modern Itomans, and his two sons, boys under age, together with four other persons, one of them a chaplain, have beO.i barbarously shot, in cold blood, at Oontarina, near tho m...
