THE MERCURY. TUESDAY MORNING, OCT. 23RI>. ISIX). -«> THAT the position of the Church of England in this Colony excites tho solicitude of all its real friends, and especially of its BISHOP, is a circumstance that can create no surprise. It cannot be denied that from some causes or other, it fails to occupy its proper and natural position of power and usefulness. Yet as an ecclesiasti- cal organization it possesses many advantages. It is the o.luir.'ii of the large majority of the population, und of its most wealthy classes. It enjoys a considerable public endowment. Many of its clergy are faithful and energetic Chris- tian Ministers ; and if there ure some who are accounted in public estimation defective in many essential features of the pastoral character, theso , are not persons holding conspicuous places iu tho Church as the ministers of great populous dtstiieti, und we might assume therefore, that whatever evil influence they exerted upon its welfare would he confined to th...

DEATH OF MR. JOHN DUNN, M.P. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 23 October 1860
DEATH OF MR. JOHN DUNN, M.P. VERY great regret was caused throughout the Colony and especially in Hobart Town, hy in- telligence brought by the Salsette of the death of Mr. John DUNN, late M.P. for Dartmouth, I and formerly representative of this city iu the I Colonial Parliament. This melancholy event took placa on board the steamer Nemesis, during the passage of the Red Sea, uni! was caused by the excessive heal and the close and crowded condition of the vessel. Mr. Dew expired, after a brief illness of two days, duriug the whole of which time he remained speechless, on the 10th September. Another passenger, Mr. Boyd A. CUNNINGHAM, fell a victim to the same causes, having died ou the day preceding the decíase of Mr. DUNN, also of apoplexy. We ulso learn from the Melbourne papers that the lied Sea and the P. &0. Company's boats have recently proved fatal to a Mr. SPOFFORTH, a nierchaut of Colombo, who was returning from a visit to Victoria, where he hud made many friends. M...
THE ITALIAN [?]RA COMPANY. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 23 October 1860
THE ITALIAN OPERA COMPANY. Perhaps Italian Opera was seldom presented under greater difficulties than at the Theatre Royal last evening, and certainly never in the face of equal difficulties achieved a more genuine success. Il Trovatore was performed without, a chorus and almost without an orchestra. The piano which had been prepared for tho occasion was silent no instrumentalist having been found willing at almost a moment's notice and at first sight to read off the libretto of the opera. The few instruments that were available however, were in the hands of masters of their art Mr. Winterbottom on the double bass, and Monsieur Paltzer and Mr. Megson on the viola, played with great taste and execution, and did much to atone &nbsp; for the want of orchestral power. Of course in the absence of the pianoforte accompaniment the Opera was heard to disadvantage, but the magnificent singing and acting of Signor and Signora Bianchi made more than amends, and caused the audience to l...
