To the Editor of the Illawarra Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 7 January 1856

To the Editor of the Illawarra Mercury. Sir. — When soliciting patronage for your journal, previous to its issue, in this part of the district, one of the strongest and most successful arguments used by you, in order to obtain that patronage, was—That our means of intercommunication would be     greatly improved by its establishment, it does not appear to me that you have given this most important matter its due pro- minency in the columns of your now valuable paper. It is really shameful that this beautiful district in general, and this most beautiful portion of it in particular, should have its progress so much retarded by the wretched condition in which its roads are kept. The people to the north of Mount Terry have at least passable roads. The Jerringong road, heretofore known only by its terrors, has been improved to an extent quite marvellous ; and this wonderful transformation has been effected solely by the indefatigable perseverance, and unwearied ...

JERRINGONG. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 7 January 1856

JERRINGONG. [from our own correspondent.] Ihe Harvest. — Harvesting is progressing slowly, the un- settled state of the weather checking materially the operations of the field. Most of the wheat in the neighbourhood is cut, and we are anxiously looking for some settled fine weather to finish this highly important pursuit of the farmer, and to hear through the length and breadth of the land the cheering sound of ' Harvest Home.' From some unavoidable cause, the steamer did not make her usual weekly call at our harbour, which appeared to be a source of much inconvenience to the settlers, who were waiting with their produce on the beach. It is highly gratifying to inform those persons who have an idea of settling down in this part of the district, that the English Church is on the point of completion, and will be opened for Divine Service in a very short period. The Scotch Church is already finished, which, as well as the Wesleyan Chapel, is attended with numerous audiences. &n...

WHAT A REPRESENTATIVE OUGHT TO BE. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 14 January 1856

WHAT A REPRESENTATIVE OUGHT TO BE.. (From the Launceston Examiner.) —. It may not be possible in every instance to procure the right man in the right place at the ensning elections, and the ' best that offers will have to be chosen. We fear there is a culpable apathy and indifference on the part of some who ought to offer their services, and a prudery on the part of others which will leave fields open to aspirants who have impudence as their only qualification. Every soundhearted colonist who can spare the time and incur the expense Bhould not hestitate to make known the fact that if requested he would be prepared to take his share in the coming contest. Indifference should be sunk, and petty jealousies disappear. Earnest men, honest men, intelligent men, are demanded as representatives in the first parliament, and we trust they will be forthcoming. In the meantime we append an outline by a practised hand, of what a member ought to be : — The qualifications of a Representative shoul...
