NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 2 July 1860
NEW ZEALAND. By H.M.S.S. Niger, we (Sydney Morning Herald, June 20) have Auckland papers to the 8th instant, being 11 days' later than previous advices. They contain no further news from the seat of &nbsp; hostilities. &nbsp; &nbsp; The Southern Cross of the above date, in an &nbsp; article headed the "Royal Flagstaff," makes the &nbsp; following remarks concerning the King movement amongst the natives, and its bearing upon the present state of matters at New Plymouth :- "It has been possible, hitherto, by means of &nbsp; that official fiction under which whatever is not forced upon official notice is supposed to have not taken place at all, to ignore the king movement in the Waikato. Natives talking about self-government were held entitled to as little consideration as white men talking about playing at soldiers. It seems to &nbsp; have been assumed, that no overt acts worth notice had been committed, and that the most pru- &a...

LATE EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE. &nbsp; -------- [TAKEN FROM THE MONITEUR AND CONSTITUTIONNEL, OF THE 19th APRIL LAST.] [Translated for the Sydney Morning Herald]. RESULT OF THE NICE ELECTIONS.-The telegraph has already notified the result of the elections at Nice. According to the version of one of our cor- respondents the votes of the population were taken under the following circumstances:-Early in the &nbsp; morning, in order to do away with all idea of there being any undue influence used, all the military posts of the city occupied by French troops were re- stored to the National Guard, and to the Royal Carabineers, with the exception, that is to of say, the guard of honor of her Majesty the Empress of Russia. With the same object in view the battalion of tho 53rd Regiment, which arrived on the pre- vious evening, was ordered on to Cannes; whilst that which was to have replaced it was directed to halt at Menton. As regarded the battalion which &nbsp; General...

THE MERCURY. MONDAY MORNING, JULY 2, 1860. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 2 July 1860
THE MERCURY. MONDAY MORNING, JULY 2, 1860. This day the Mercury enters upon the seventh year of its existence. And yet, young as it is, what revolutions and changes has it not been called upon to record ! The progress of the human race seems to acquire a greater velocity as it rolls down the dark, untrodden, and mysterious path which leads on into an ever extending future. Time is still advancing and still will advance. The grey dawn &nbsp; of every day as it breaks allows us to peer farther into what was but yesterday futurity; but even this concession is again hemmed in by im- penetrable darkness. We cannot tell what lies beyond. Had we fortold six years ago what has &nbsp; transpired during those six years who would have believed us ? Look at the mighty revolution which &nbsp; &nbsp; has been effected in the position and influence of what we are now able to predict will be the great &nbsp; Australian Empire ! Six years ago the broad out- &a...

TELEGRAPHIC DESPATCHES. [FROM THE MELBOURNE PAPERS.] SYDNEY. Saturday. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 2 July 1860
TELEGRAPHIC DESPATCHES. &nbsp; ---------- &nbsp; &nbsp; [FROM THE MELBOURNE PAPERS] SYDNEY. Saturday. Three cases just landed have been found to be filled with rubbish. At the meeting of the creditors of J. N. Fair hurst, assets and liabilities both stand at £35,000, but many doubt whether full claims are included. Bennott, Frith, and Dickson are appointed trus- tees. Monday. The experiment of a traction-engine for roads seems likely to answer. The engine has reached Liverpool, and passed on with its burden. The opera season is likely to close brilliantly here. Every feat has been taken for the benefit of the Prima Donna. Little business is doing. It is rumoured that the Upper House will pass the Appropriation Bill, and simply protest. Another rumour is that some of the Opposition contemplate meeting the question by indicting the Governor and Executive Council for spending money unlaw- fully. &nbsp; Tuesday.

THE HEAT OF STEAM. TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 3 July 1860
THE HEAT OF STEAM. TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. DEAR Mr. EDITOR-For the information of " Young Tasmania" I send a few lines on the subject of Steam if worth the insertion. When a vessel of water is placed on the fire, the &nbsp; water gradually becomes hotter till it reaches 212 degrees when it boils ; now heat must be constantly entering from the fire and combining with the water ; as the water however does not become hotter, the heat must combine with that part of it which flies off in the form of steam ; thus the steam which rises from boiling water becomes a receptacle &nbsp; for the heat which 1s constantly entering the liquid from the fire and in this receptacle it remains in a dormant 0r latent state till the steam is again reduced to vapor or its elementary liquid, when the accumulated heat is instantly developed. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Dr. Black, Professor of Chemistry in the Univer- sity ol Edinburgh, made the discovery...
SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 3 July 1860
SYDNEY. By the Tasmania we have received Sydney papers &nbsp; to the 28th inclusive. The firm of Messrs. Betteridge and Haydon had suspended payment ; a statement of accounts produced before their creditors showed their liabilities to amount to £27,000 and assets to .£31,000. The Empire of the 28th reporting upon business generally says :- Business appears to be perfectly stagnant, and owing to the numerous rumours floating about, merchants are more cautious in their transactions, and but little desire is shewn to sell. Prices remain without alteration.
