JAPAN. (TIMES MAY 2.) [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 16 July 1860
JAPAN,. (THIES "MAY 2.) When the first Embassy departed from these shores to the unknown city of Pekin the ex- pedition created almost as much sensation as would havo been occasioned by a voyage to the moon. Wo are now despatching an Ambassador to thp same country under very different con- ditions ; but it happens that at this moment an Embassy is on its way, probably to London, which is at least as extraordinary as the first British mission to China.. Never from the earliest periods pf history has a diplomatic mlssipn been sent out from the Empire of Japan until the present day; but now nearly a hundred Japanese have started on what is likely to be a tour of tho world, and perhaps before the London season is over we may see genuine specimens of this wonderful people ia the Crystal Palace or on the banks of the Serpentine. The prospect is due to the Americans, who have got tho first visit for themselves, and who, as even their official publications show, are not a little pleased at ...

THE GIGANTIC FRAUD ON THE UNION BANK. [TIMES, 5TH MAY.] [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 16 July 1860
THE GIQAimC FRAUD ON THE UNION BANK. [TIMES, 5TH MAY.] The strangest stories are lu cumulation with reference to Pnlliiiger, who was committed for trial yesterday, but tho strangest of thom is not so strange as the naked fact that this man was able to einbezzlo upwards of a quarter of a million of money, the property of the Union Bank, Some will have it that twenty or thirty other people aro implicated in the frauds-at least, to the extent of having received hush-money for then- silence. Others toll you, again, that PuUmgor might well have carried on his frauds without any assistance at all, or at most with the help of a. single person skilled in the unholy mysteries of forgery. It has qeen stated as .a matter exceeding the limits, of credibility that during the fivo years over which PuUingor's frauds extended some person or other in the Bank of England who know tho exact state of the balance hold by that corporation in favour of the Union Baidc should not have seen the accounts iss...

REVISION OF THE LITURGY. [FROM THE 11111.3, MAY 0 ] Xord "bur/s motion last night was tho very «ordinary act of a man who speculates on a notori ?ous fact or a universal want. If there is one thing moro than another for wMch wo ntfghtonly appeal to the senses and sensations of ali who uso their .senses and confess their sensations, it is that tho ¡Services of tho Church of England are too long aud ttoo monotonous for ordinary attention and endur jinee. In niuo churches out of ten tho daily ser- vice is giren up altogether. In the best frequented churches the proportion of those who afo piesent at both services ou Sunday is but small.
