THE COMMERCIAL TREATY. [TIMES.] [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 14 July 1860

THE COMMERCIAL TREATY. | [TIJIES.] There are some thousands in this country to whom nothing could be more interesting than a letter from Mr. Cobden, dated " Paris, 82, Rue de l'Université." A letter from the diggings to a family that has just engaged berths for Mel- bourne, a letter from the seat of war when a great battle is known to have been fought, a letter from the agent to whom several shiploads ot goods have been consigned, is read with an interest that the fastest novel would fail to excite in the idlest schoolboy or school giil. Up to this time there has been a lamentable blank in the intelligence lrom Paris. A}1 »hat is known is that we have given up everything, and that Franco is consi- dering whether she should give us anything. Mr. Cobden has distributed a financial patrimony with the recklessness of Lear, and, now that it is time for Goneril and Regan to bo carrying oat their part of the arrangement, we are told to wait and see. So a letter from Mr. Cobden is a thing t...

THE TURKISH EMPIRE. [TIMES, 15 MAY.] [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 14 July 1860

THE TülíKISH EMPIRE. [TIMES, 15 MAY.] No one who has watched the condition ot the Turkish Empire during the last foar years can have tloubted that the tjmo mu3,t shortly come y,'hen its anaii-3 would onue more engage the attention of Europe. All that the last war effected was to preserve the actual territory of the Sultan from the grasp of Russia ; it changed nothing, reestablished nothing, made no recon- ciliations between rival creeds, gave no securities for justice ou the part of the rulers, and weakened iu no way the animosities of the governed. War, indeed, seldom confers moral benefits on a community, but that of 1854 has not evea strengthened the material resources of the Qttomau State. The Sultan has gained squiethiug by tljo weakening of his antagonist ; Sebastopol has been dismantled, the Black Sea Ji'leet destroyed, and Russia is bound by treaty to advance no iurther than the Pruth, and has given up her Protectorate over Servia. But, on the other hand, the Mussulmans have...

THE MERCURY. SATURDAY MORNING, JULY 14, 1860. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 14 July 1860

THE MERCURY.                 SATURDAY MORNING, JULY 14, 1860. DURING the ensuing Session of Parliament the question of State Aid to religion will force itself in some form or other upon the attention of honorable members. We know they will be asked to give their assent to a redistribution of the public money awarded to the Church of England upon the same or a very similar plan to that rejected by them last year. They will be asked, also, to hand over to the Synod in a lump sum, the Church of England's share of the annual grant, thus depriving themselves of all power over the expenditure of that money. The principle involved in this latter request, however, is one to which the House of Assembly will never listen. The represen- tatives of the people are not likely to allow the strings of the public purse to pass out of their own hands. Were they to consent to such a proposal from on...

EGYPT. [FROM THE TIMES CORRESPONDENT.] Alexandria, April 17. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 14 July 1860

EGYPT. [PKOM THE TIMES CORRESPONDENT.] Alexandria, April 17. I have on several occasions had to refer to tho financial ombarrasmenls which of late have been gradually growing up and perplexing the formerly smooth course of the Egyptian Government. A system of reckless expenditure-or rather an utter/ want of order and system, and a habitnal practice, of squandering money upon all sorts of extraya^int and frivolous objects, are the main sourco «if this, great and serious evU ; but other causea have been. at work, and among them must bo reckoned th« constant claims for indemnities of one description or another, which are incessantly urged against the Government, aud which arc hardly less remarkable for their success than for tho monstrous and ex- travagant nature that usually distinguishes them, The sums are always pitched at a high figuro, and in the aggregate they toll heavily upon the Egyptian Treasury; indeed, they would form a serious burden to any country.
