THE SICILIAN STRUGGLE. (MORNING POST.) [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 10 July 1860
THE SICILIAN STRUGGLE. (morning- tost:) It was the separatist character of the Sicilian movement of that period which enabled the late J#ng Ferdinand, to crush the revolt yvith such severity. At the time when all tim forces of the kingdom of tho Two Sicilies were required to act against the common enemy, the Sicilians unfurled the standard of revolt against their oyvn king. They proclaimed the restoration of that constitution which, after all, only embodied popular rights and recognised national privileges of a far more ancient date. The Sicilians in thinking first of their rights as Sicilians, and only second of their interest and duties as sharers in the national war, then thought and acted with sagacity and prudence. They believed, and the event' amply justified their belief, that to surrender at dis- cretion to the King of Naples, in the hope that he would wield the undivided power of .the state in behalf of the Italian cause, was but an idle and vain illusion ; that in so doing...

THE MERCURY. TUESDAY MORNING, JULY 10, 1860. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 10 July 1860
THE MERCURY. TUESDAY MORNING, JULY 10, 1860. In our issue of Wednesday last we published an account of a most daring outrage committed a &nbsp; few days previous near Cleveland. The scoun- drels concerned in it have been fortunately ap- prehended, so that an end is likely to be put to their power of doing further mischief. As usual the leader of them is one of those notorious characters against whose unrestrained inter- course with society we have so repeatedly and so earnestly protested. It is now some time since we have been called upon to record the perpetration of such desperate crimes ; and we were not without hope that the strong re- monstrances we have made against the manifest injustice of turning such utterly irreclaimable felons loose to prey upon the community had not been without some effect upon those who have the control of these men. It now appears, however, that our hope was fallacious. The system is still in force in all its monstrous iniquity ; and we now, ...

THE FRENCH IN THE RED SEA. Aden, April l8. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 10 July 1860
THE FRENCHJN THE RED SEA. Aden, April l8. By advices just received from that quarter I understand that a French steam transport.laden yvith the requisites for forming a new settle- ment had reached La Reunion, and astean frísate yvas expected to join her in a few days. Tlie destination of these two vessels is avowed to be Adoolis, on the coast of Abyssinia, though there can be little doubt that the island of Dissee will be the first point in the Red Sea occupied by our allies. It yvill be interesting to note the reasons which will be advanced for this new move on the part of France in this region. As a counterpart of yvhat is going forward on the other side of the yvater, the tableau will iii all probability repre- sent Dissee and Adoolis as the slopes of the Alps ; the rebel Dcjai Nagoosi yvill stand in the place of Victor Emmanuel, and the acquies» cence of forty families of poor fishermen who at present occupy the island of Dissee will answer well enough for the votes of Nice and...
GARIBALDI'S MOVEMENTS. (DAILY NEWS.) [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 10 July 1860
GARIBALDIS MOVEMENTS. [Daily News.) To an Englishman there is something absurd, almost leading to doubts of its sincerity, iu the proposal to harmonise constitutional liberty with the rule of the Bourbons at Naples. Yet it has bean adopted at Turin iii good faith and- pro- secuted sedulously. The co-operation of the Two Sicilies with free Italy is essential to the full independence of the Peninsula, and as that independence has been uniformly sought by Piedmont in preference to all selfish territorial aggrandisement, only those who have from the fh-3t misunderstood the policy of that kingdom can be surprised that it should seek to secure the aid of the southern kingdom by diplomacy rather than through revolution. The chances of success, it must be ad- mitted, are, ant1 always were those of the smallest, and we eau quite sympathise with those who, looking merely at the deserts of the Neapolitan government, betray the most lively impatience of negotiations with that despotism. Still t...
THE GREAT BANK FRAUD. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 10 July 1860
THE GREAT BANK FRAUD. The passion for speculation in the Stock Exchange &nbsp; has brought ruin upon another victim, &nbsp; hitherto respected, and holding a responsible office. Mr. William George Pullinger, chief cashier of the &nbsp; &nbsp; Union Bank of London, and who has been connected with that establishment since its formation, &nbsp; &nbsp; is now in custody on the charge of embezzling the &nbsp; funds of the bank. The directors have issued an official report on the subject, in which the amount of the deficit is stated at no less a sum than £263,070. In point of magnitude, there- &nbsp; &nbsp; fore, the defalcations of Pullinger throw those of Robson into the shade, and even exceed those of Redpath. The amount involved in the latter case, it will be remembered, was about £240,000. Pul linger's method of proceeding was simple. The whole of the large payments into the Bank of England passed through his han...
ENGLAND'S GIN PALACES. [FROM THE TIMES l8TH MAY.] [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 11 July 1860
ENGLAND'S GIN PALACES. [FROM TUE TIMES lSlII MAY.] Let us imagine some native of the sober South taking, about IO o'clock last night, an observant and rambling walk through the streets of London, making his way deviously from the region North of Holborn, and bent upon witnessing the proceedings of the British Legis- lature. He would pass through the Seven Dials ; he would wander to and fro in a maze of courts and alleys until he emerged into Coventry-street ; he would pass down the Haymarket, and would find himself by way of Pailiament-street at his destination. What would be the prevailing idea upon that man's mind when he arrived at the lobby of the House of Commons ? At the corner of every street, and midway between the corner of every street, in the most wretched of the thoroughfares he passed, he had found magnificent palaces lit up like the scene of an Eastern story. Ho had pushed open the swinging doors, and, peering in, had beheld rags and rottenness, had heard a babel of cu...
PEACE OR WAR? [DAILY TELEGRAPH, MAY L8.] [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 11 July 1860
PEACE 0"k WAR? [daily telegraph, may l8.] The position of Europe at this moment is precisely one midway between peace and war. There is n general desire for tranquility, but an almost universal tendency to collision. France, Russia, and the German Powers are active in pursuance of schemes, any one of which might precipitate a far-spread conflict. The Italian peninsula is still a meteoric cloud, throwing off incessant showers of fire. Great Britain her- self is becoming gradually inured to the be- lief that sooner or later another battle of the great coalitions will be necessary to her ex- istence as a leading State. But, although the atmosphere is laden witli the elements of a mortal struggle, we have reached exactly that point at which the disaster may be averted or rendered unavoidable by diplomacy. Not one of the rival nations stands as yet committed to abide by the desperate arbitrament of arms. If secret alliances exist, they have not hitherto been declared. If dangerous projec...
LORD JOHN RUSSELL AND LORD GREY. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 11 July 1860
LORD JOHN RUSSELL AND LORD G R E Y. A correspondence lias passed between Lord Grey and Lord John Russell. Lord Grey, in an pnti »reform speech, lately accused Lord John of having committed hjs colleagues to thu question of Reform upon ¡lis own individual responsibility, ¡md without previous consultation with them. The statement was supposed to have reference to Lord John's abortive picnsuve brought forward in 18Ö2, and accordingly Mr. ÎValpole îepeitted it in that sense din-in.; the ..-scent dulwjte on the Re-ftu ni Bill. Mr. Walpole was, however, interrupted by Lord John Russell, who made the luief hut emphatic remark- "It is not true." Lord Gre-y lheieupon addresses a letter lo " dear Lord John," in which he explains that ha referred to a declaration of opinion made by his lordship when Premier, sume three or four years pieviouslgr, and that this, was the piedle winch was "ado without t'ne knowledyu of the Cabinet, and which ho deemed inexpedient.
