THE REMAINS OF AMERICAN AND BRITISH SOLDIERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 20 October 1860
-- ^ THE REMAINS OF AMERICAN AND BRITISH SOLDIERS. The telegram yesterday informed us of the dis- covery of the rumoins oí British and American soldiers, near the Old Fort, at Toronto. The Daily Globe, of that city, of the 13th, has the fol- lowing: " On the afternoon of Friday while the work- men employed at tho excavation for the bridge, at the Old Fort, were digging near the surface, oppo- site Dillon's tavern, they brought to light the re- mains of several human beings. It was at once suspected that the bodies were those of the British aud Americans who fell in the con- flict which took place in front of the Fort, in the year 1813. A considerable crowd soon collected, and Seijeant-Miyor Barlow, of the One Hundredth, Mr. Dillon, and others, went to work along with the labourers, and in a short space of timo they succeeded in exhuming fifteou bodies. ' From the position in which they were found, it appeared evident that they had been buried in a trench near the place where they fe...

THE MERCURY. SATURDAY MORNING, OCT. 20TH, 1860. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 20 October 1860
1-L . THE MERCURY. - SATURDAY MORNING, OCT. 20TH, 18Ü0. I -?» Two most important documents are before us in tiie shape of the Annual Reports of the Northern and Southern Boards of Education. To these ure appended the Reports of the Schcol Inspec- tors, Mr. STEPHENS and Mr. STUTZER. Our Educatiouul system is one of the points on u liich we are accustomed to pride ourselves, as all'ording u provision for the instruction ol our colonial youth iu all essential matters of knowledge, and their training in the principles ol sound morality. With a population of eighty tlmusaud only, we vote annually for the support of primary .schools a .sum of £12,000, and this appears to be considerably exceeded by the acmul expenditure of the Boards, .£353 13s. having been spent in the Northern District dur- ing the past year, and ¿SG07 12s. 3d. iu the Southern, in excess of their proportions of the grant. By this liberal provision it is generally believed that the educational wants of the classes for wh...

THE PRISONS OF NAPLES. I FROM OUR OWN, (TIMES,) CORRESPONENT. Naples, July 24 A few days since I sent you a report of a visit to tbe prisons of the Prefecture. Last Wednesday I went to se9 those of the Vicaria, and, though some mealy-mouthed poople are loud of saying " Let bygones be bygones," I must deal another deathblow to a system which, for the sake of humanity and religion, it is hoped has passed away, by giving you a few details. I went with four English friends, with a special order from the Minister of the Interior. Gates Hew open so readily 'that the walls of the Vicaria were astonished, grim gaolers smiled, and an old inspector plied us with his snuff. The first apartments, assigned to those of condizione civile, are not so bad they have been recently whitewashed ; but as we got more into the depths of the prison house we began to discover its amiable pecu« liarities. Many of the chambers were almost dark aud very damp, so damp that a chill struck to the hones ; others we...
