OUR STREETS. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 18 February 1856
L- OUR STREETS. The present state of our streets is absolutely disgraceful. From die continued rains, and large amount of traffic upon 'them, they Are all but impassable. We fear there is no hope of improvement until something- is done, in giving us the means -of .governing ourselves. How this 'is .to be /accomplished 'is another thing. - Jn old (countries they have their corporate bodies, in whom 'the town property is vested, and who Law; adequate powers to carry .out all necessary improvements and to makeand keep the public thoroughfares in repair ^ with this they also have the power of taxing the inhabitants ?for the purpose. JBut we scarcely think these institutions in their entirety are suitable for -communities like ours, nor does there appear a necessity for imitating them, with all their complicated machinery. This we conceive was ?the error Sir.. W. Denisonfell into, in the Health of Towns' Bill, which he introduced in the Council the last sessions, it being probably merely...
European News. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 18 February 1856
? (gttrniicittt Jim By the arrival of the ' Mermaid,' we have five days later news, The following compilation is taken from the Melbourne papers. THE WAR. The telegraph announces in brief but explicit terms a victory gained over the Russians by the Turks in Asia Minor, led by Omar Pacha. The battle, it is alleged, lasted five hours, and the enemy suffered severely. The scene of the conflict was the river Ingour, the passage of which the enemy disputed, with, according to one account, 10,000, and to another account, 16,000 men. The Turks, under their brave commander, waded up to their armpits in the stream, and although the Russians were partially entrenched, they sustained a defeat, and left 400 dead in the field. The Turks lost 300 men. The In gour, on the banks of which the battle was fought, rises in the Caucasus, and falls into the sea at Anaklia. The army under Omar Pacha numbered 20,000 ; but the pas sage of a rapid river in the face of an enemy so powerful, has added to the l...

LOUIS NAPOLEON'S POLICY. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 18 February 1856
LOUIS NAPOLEON'S POLICY. The great event of the week, in a political point of view, is the speech of the Emperor of the French in closing the Paris Universal Exhibition. Its purport could not be mistaken. It was directed against the neutrality of cer tain nations, the effect of which was calculated to protract unnecessarily the present war. By a combined action of the nations of Europe, the aggressive ambition of the Czar can be crushed, and peace obtained, by which the liberties and civilization of Europe would be upheld. The French Jimperor was therefore perfectly justified in giving a warn ing to the neutral nations m question, to be wise in time and take that course which was consistent with their own security, and the permanent peace of Europe. — Home News , Nov. 20.

FIVE DAYS' LATER NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 18 February 1856
FIVE DAYS' * LATER NEWS. By the ' Canteaux Wattell, we have further news to the 26th of November, of which we give a short summary below. There has been no later intelligence this week from the Crimea than was dispatched to you on Monday last. The Government despatches, however, have given details of the destruction by the Allies of large quantities of grain and forage on the Sea of Azoff. There are also mails from the Crimea to the 10th instant, by a vessel just arrived at Marseilles, but the news she brings has of course been alreadv ariven. Lord Palmerston has got over his political difficulties for the present, by the Duke of Argyle having consented to accept, pro. tern., the office of Postmaster-General, vice Viscount Canning, appointed Governor-General of India. The appointment of Mr. Labouchere to the Colonial Office appears to be well thought of here. ' Strikes' in the manufacturing districts are increasing at present, about 3400 operatives are out of employ. There is a furt...

On Sunday morning be was liberated, but in the evening he was again found in the streets, sayingjhe bad noplace to lodge ; he was again put in durance, on this occasion he bad but £2 2s. 8d., on his person. In reply to the Magistrate he said he did not know how the remainder had gone. He was sober on both occasions — he was discharged, the bench advising him to leave the town. It was stated by constable M'Crohan that he had property in stock, in the district. John Baker of the lake, was summoned for an assault on a Chinaman in his employ— -upon evidence being taken in support of the charge, it appeared the Chinaman had been the first aggres sor, therefore the case was dismissed. Mr. Rogers appeared for the defence. Elizabeth Read appeared to answer...
YANKEES IN EUROPE. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 18 February 1856
YANKEES IN EUROPE. The Know-nothings in the United States have, for a principa tenet, that America must be for the Americans ; but the great body of tho people, with the president and representatives at their head, are rapidly starting the doctrine that every other country must be for the Americans as well. With this notion they cast their eyes on Cuba, and, being refused it as a matter of sale by Spain, 'they have clearly made up their minds to take it whenever Europe is not looking or too much occupied with her own concerns. But to so go-a-head a nation warfare so near home is a mero nothing, and therefore they propose embroiling themselves with the elder civilisation by simply refusing to pay the Sound dues of Den mark. These are taxes levied npou all ships passing through, and applied to the necessary purposes of lighthonses and buoys. ^Den mark makes no particular profit out of the farming, and all na tions are content to pay. With the States a treaty was made, dis solvable at ...

MEETING OF ELECTORS AT JAMBEROO, ? On last Tuesday a meeting of the electors of East Camden took place in the open space in front of the ? Man of Kent Inn,' Jara ' beroo. There were from three to four hundred electors present* ' The meeting had been convened to consult the electors as to what two gentlemen were the most eligible to represent our interests in tho.iN.ew Parliament. But 11s in the interim, between the con vening and holding of the meeting, no fewer than seven candidates had been induced by their ftiends to solicit our suffrages, it, was : 'deemed prudent lor the meeting to afford to, each of them an op portunity .to explain his views on the most important political questions to be considered in the New Parliament.

GREAT CENTRAL MEETING OF ELECTORS. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 18 February 1856
GREAT CENTRAL MEETING- OF ELECTORS. The meeting on Tuesday last was highly creditable to the . district ; it indicates the increased interest felt in public affairs by the residents. We have nothing so much to ?dread. at the present time as apathy ; but, when the people meet together, talk about the views of the candidates, and balance their respective merits, we can augur nothing but good. Their judgment in many particulars may be defec tive, yet the effort to think must improve their ability to iorm correct conclusions. The addresses delivered were ?worthy of intelligent candidates, and evinced their fitness for the office to which they aspire. Not that we think the -mere ability to talk constitutes in itself a just claim, but the addresses in question showed that the speakers not ?only understood the subjects on which they spoke, but were able to express them in clear and intelligible terms. More ^especially would we remark on the clear and concise address ?of Mr. Waugli, and the...

English Extracts. RUSSIA FLATTERS UNCLE SAM. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 18 February 1856
Cimlbfr fiiratte. RUSSIA FLATTERS UNCLE SAM. (Daily News.) We.have shown, on various occasions, the evidence which is before the eves of all the world of the use which the prince of slave-holders, Russia, has made, through the whole course of the present century of the slave interest in the United States, to stir lip difficulties in the republic in those crissis when European affairs would command the sympathy of true republicans. We have repeatedly shown how the natural results of slave institutions compel an extension of territory, as the onlv alternative to ruin ; and we have traced the course of this extension, and its barbaric character, trampling down as it goes the convictions and the will of the free States, and tho liberties of the whole people, in regard to speech and the press. We have warned brethren in America of the retron-rade charm'tor of their modern ambition — so inferior to that of the fathers of their republic. We have rebuked the public men of the United States,...
