DEATH OF ADMIRAL BRUAT. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 10 March 1856
DEATH OF ADMIRAL BRUAT. ! w The Ulm, which arrived at Toulon on Sunday evening* November 25th, brought news of the death of Admiral- , Bruat. This misfortune, which happened whilst the French fleet, bringing home the Imperial Guards was in the-: Messina roads, is attributed to supposed gout. This pre mature death removes from the French navy one of its most tried and skilful officers at the moment when, after having added to its glories and rendered the highest ser vices to the Emperor and to the nation, he was nearing the shores of his native land to receive there the honours and sympathies so justly his due. The deceased Admiral was born at Colmar, on the 26tli May, 1796, and his vari ous ranks in the service have the following dates — pupil at the Navy School at Breast, in 1811 ; aspirant of the ? 1st class, 1815 ; ensign de vaisseau, 1819; lieutenant de vaisseau, 1827 ; capitaine de fregate, 1831 ; capitaine - de vaisseau, 1838; rear-admiral, 1846 ; vice-admiral, 1852 ; admiral,...

MR. DUFFY'S ARRIVAL IN SYDNEY. I .On Tuesday Mr. Gavan Duffy, arrived in Sydney in the Tele graph. He was met by the Committee of the Duffy Banquet in the Illalong, which had been hired for the purpose. The weather was unpropitious, yet notwithstanding this, upwards of 200 per sons were on board', with a fair sprinkling of tho lair sex. When the Telegraph reached the wharf, Mr. Duffy boarded the Illalong, and having mounted a bench, addressed the assembly in a charac teristic speech, of which the following is an abridgement from the IJeauld. Mr. Duffy said, ladies and gentlemen, I present myself before you as one of the most sea-sick men in the new world (laughter) ; having suffered for the last twelve hours from that exhausting complaint, there is nothing I need so much as a little rest. Not withstanding this, I see so many kindly Irish faces beaming wel come around me, that I am almost well again. I have the com plaint to make of you however ; you have spoilt my view of the magnif...

MR. OSBORNE'S SQUATTAGES. To the Editor of the Illawarra Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 10 March 1856
MR. OSBORNE'S SQUATTAGES. To the Editor of the illawarra .Mar cury. Sir-— As Mr. H. Osborne in :'his- address to the electors ot Wollongong, denies what he said at Jamberoo meeting, -that his 'squattages had not been profitable to him,' I feel called upon to state, with your permission, liis speech at Jamberoo. .was sub stantially as reported. Mr. Osborne might have spoken un intentionallv, when he expressed himself as quoted above, and doubtless he did so, but then he should own this, and not as he has done, assail the verity of a faithfull report. Will not _ such a denial as that refered to, imperil the high esteem in which Mr. Osborne's mere wprd is held ; may he not, when it suit?. ;ii-' pur pose, deny that he said he would assist to abolish the Wo-thirds clause? and denv-tliat he made the sundry other statements where with lie conciliated support. The electors pt' East Camden should ponder well, and I think if they do, they will value iuii pledge more highly than his word. - 1 ...
THE COMING ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 10 March 1856
THE COMING ELECTION. W f, confine ourselves tliis week to the consideration of the political career of Mr. Henry Osborne, as we proposed in our last, in order to test his aptness to sit an the New Parliament as one of' the representatives of ?East Camden. Eive years since, the honorable gentleman was elected a member in the late Legislative Assembly for this district. 'We have not before us his address to the electors previous to his election, and are, therefore, unable to compare his political promises with his political acts; nor is it our intention to enter into the considera tion, of the part he took in the assembly of the country in the many important enactments which, from time to time,, were made during the last session, affecting the interests of the people. It is only necessary to refer our readers to the vast number of the Acts passed, and the Ordinancos made, for the government of New South Wales during those five years, to satisfy them that such a. task would be for all ...
THE LATE MEETING IN WOLLONGONG. (To the Editor of the Illawarra Mercury.) [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 10 March 1856
THE LATE MEETING IN WOLLONGONG. (To the Editor of the Illawarra Mercury.) Sir— I certainly must congratulate you upon the highly in fluential meeting, which took place in Wollongong on behalf of Mr Osborne last week, and, of which you gave a report in your last issue. Perhaps you would he kind enough to inform me anil several others down here, whether it was 'really composed of highly intellectual minds, or of the recipients of that gentleman's favors that the majority consisted; if of the former, I say that they certainly have been under the influence of something worse than chlorofom ; if of the latter, so well, they had every night to attend ; and 1 say, as a matter of course, they are praiseworthy. Only they abuse tlie independence which he himself has obtained i'or'tbem, as he so states. Now, looking through the names, I first observe the name of H. Gordon, Esq., J. P. Is this the schoolmaster of bye gone days, an he him elf stated upon a former occasion, had done more for the ...
Local Intelligence. MR. WAUGH'S MEETING IN WOLLONGONG. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 10 March 1856
ID.mil JMrlltgnire. . MR. WAUGH' S MEETING IN WOLLONGONG. On Monday last Mr. Waugh met the electors in the Market | Shed, according to announcement. The meeting was called for noon, but owing to the protracted departure of the steamer, and it being the Court of Requests day, it was between two and three o'clock before the business of the meeting commenced, and from one of these causes, the gentleman who had promised to preside, was prevented. , Mr. C. J. Tindal was moved into the chair, and briefly stated the object of the meeting, namely, to afford Mr. Waugh all oppor tunity of giving an exposition of his political sentiments to the electors ; he then culled upon Mr. Waugh. Mr. WAUGii upon rising said, he had much pleasure in meeting the electors, and felt honoured by so large an attendance. He would express his opinions on the various topics that were at pre sent occupying public attention, and iti doing so, he would confine himself to the political principles laid down in his add...

BILL AND MURPHY; TWO ILLAWARRA SETTLERS, DISCUSSING POLITICS OVER A NOBBLER. (Per favour of the Illawarra Mercury .) i Bill.— I say old fellow, how do you think will the New Consti- | tution work? ~ ' Murphy.— I don't think it will work at all. Bill.— Why? , j ? ' Nurphy. — Do you think that we will hold our lianas in our pockets, and see an Upper House with nobles introduced into this country, which is even a pest and a nuisance at home . Bill.— We cannot be all radicals and of your politics, we must have somebody to make laws and rule over us. Murphy. — You are right in your remarKS, Bin, dud we, usa-ueo people, oujrlit to try conscientiously to get a good man to represent us aud our wants in the New Parliament. One who is a friend to the poor man ; one who would wish to see the labouring man get a house of his own, and the government lands open to air at an upset price, without going to auction. Let money not be the standard of our new member ; let us get a good man, even with ou...
MR. JENKINS' MEETING IN WOLLONGONG. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 10 March 1856
MR. JENKINS' MEETING IN WOLLONGONG. Oil Wednesday Mr. C.Jenkins met the electors (as previously advertised) at the Sportsman's Arms, Wollongong. On the morion of Mr. Geo. Anderson', Mr. John Farraher was'called to the chair, on taking which he said, thev were met to hear an exposition of Mr. Jenkins' political sentiments, and he hoped they would giv« him a patient hearing. Mr. J iiukiNS then came forward and said he was happy in meet ing them on that occasion, and although there were none of the aristocracy of the district, nor any J. P.'s — nor did they want, them — yet the parties present were the working men of the dis trict, they were the producing classes, and as such he felt it an honour to address them. The question on which he would first speak, was the land question, us one in which they were all in terested. From the effects of laud jobbing, it was difficult for a poor man to get a piece of land, and notwithstanding the promises that some of these squatters and land-jobber...
To the Editor of the Illawarra Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 10 March 1856
To the Editor ofthe IllawarraMercury. : Sir — Since my sojourn in tliis favourite spot, Australian Brighton, Captain Sullivan ot'een used to send to me German, French, and Italian servants . who' were unable^ to speak the English language. I tried my best to explain their wants, and to gee them to their destination. I have been even once the aibi trator between a gentleman near this and an Italian,- and many miles I walked to set their disputes in buono ordine. I do not '?rudo-e, Mr. Editor, the trifling services I rendered to the poor creatures who were unable to explain themselves in English in a foreign land. I did it with pbeasure ; but to prevent ill feeling i1Qf ii-uan r-,nc tor nnd sprvwnts. T think that everv farmer that hires a foreign servant ought to provide liim with food whilst on board, and a cart ought to be ready lor him, to take him and his luggage to his new home. . . «...

THE CRIMEA. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 10 March 1856
THE CRIMEA. 'Telegraphic despatches from Marseilles of the 4th, received from the East by the Euphrates steamer, states that Admiral Lyons' fleet continued to cruise close to the coast of the Crimea, in order to keep an incessant look out upon the Point of Kertch, against which the Russians seem to be preparing an attack, to be effected during the winter. The Russians were also foraging at Arabat and ?' concentrating in its neighbourhood about 30,000 men, whilst at, the same time a corpsof 15,000 men was directed on Genitchi. The movements were being undertaken with the object of re-establishing the communication between the Russian territory and the main army under Prince Gortschakoff, by the narrow slip of land between Arabat and Genitchi. The cannon of the Allies, however, both in steam frigates and floating batteries, would effec tually command the entire length of the route, should they not be prevented from maintaining their position by the freezing of the Sea of Azoff. Furthe...
SIEGE OF KARS. Vienna, Thursday, 6th December. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 10 March 1856
SIEGE OF KARS, Vienna, Thursday, 6th December. ?: There lia^ been a report that Kars had been taken by. . the Russian's. It was, however, quite a Stock Exchange rumour, and at present no other advice confirms it. The . same report was current in France and in this country some days back. Notwithstanding all heard lately of the raising of the siege, and the safety of Major-General Williams, that officer was, at the date of last despatches, in Kars, in the ? most imminent danger.

TERRIFIC EXPLOSION IN THE FRENCH CAMP.- 1 A terrific explosion took place in the French siege train; on the 15th November, the full particulars of which may be gathered from the following despatch. War Department, November 29. i Lord Panmure has this day received a dispatch and its enclosures, of which the following are copies, addressed to his Lordship by General Sir William Codrington, K.C.B. : — I Sebastopol, November 17. I My Lord,— On the* 15tli instant, about 3 p.m., a terrific explosion shook the camp of the army and spread heavy destruction in the immediate neighbourhood' of its force ; even here, at head quarters, two and a half miles perhaps distant, it burst open and broke windows, all felt the power of it and the high column of smoke, with shells-bursting in the midst and around it, told; too well the cause, and showed the danger- of all within its reach. It was not long before we were on the spot ; to the sud den burst had succeeded a continued and dark drift of srnoke ...

'A Dialogue* between an Elector andliis Son,' where tlie omission :of .vo'jie paragraph destroys, as it were, -the primttm mobile of the -?oll(K]uy, by rendering it at once abrupt and uncon nected. : As the author of the above dialogue, I beg leave to state that, in accordance with tlie M.S., it should be read thus - Son. — How long- has our representative held a seat in Council ?

The order \ 'of tho Garter has not always been so carefully bestowed as to make !

The Queen has paid another of her kindly salutary hospital I visits. On Wednesday her Majesty went to Chatham for the third time, to inspect the sick and wounded soldiers at Fort Pitt and Brompton. Numbers of the Crimian heroes came under the eyes of their Soovereign, and, trite as the observation is, it cannot be to often repeated, that not only are the hearts and spirits of those/jwho have bled for their country cheered by those gracious visits, bul, ...
