LORD LYNDHURST'S RENEWED WARNING, [TIMES, 2ND MAY.] [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 16 July 1860

LOKD LYNDHÜRST'S RENEWED WARNING, [TPIES, 2ND JIAV.I Youth and stronach, wealth and courage, aro proverbially very bad advisers. When such men as the Duke of Wellington, Lord _ynd» hurst, or Sir C. Napier, and perhaps we might add Sir George Cockburn, devoto the energies which they know must soon sleep in t)ie grave to a solemn warnjng against a fatal security, it would bo madness to rejeot the caution because it does not come from younger men, with the world still before them. No doubt, there are reasons in nature which induce men as they advance in life to take the cautious side of all practical calculations ; but what ia nature in them is a providential service to us. The position and tho teudency of an old States- man or Admiral is in no wise different from that of n man in any ordinary line of business. An enterprising youngster, confident of his powers, thinking of himself, quite ready to suffer the worst that can happen, and either perish or retrieve a mjshap by a second adve...

THE MERCURY. MONDAY MORNING, JULY 16, 1860. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 16 July 1860

THE MERCURY. MONDAY MORNING, JULY 16, 1860. AFTER a protracted recess of ten months the Parliament of Tasmania is about to assemble for the despatch of business. On Wednesday His EXCELLENCY will inform us what measures the government intend to submit for the con- sideration of honorable members. The long interval allowed to elapse every year between the prorogation of one session and the as- sembling of the next gives to the meeting of our Parliament an interest which otherwise it would not possess. We will not say posi- tively that it would be an advantage to the Colony were the people's representatives more frequently consulted upon matters of public moment, although it cannot be denied that there are evils attending the adoption of a policy which practically ignores the necessity for a Parliament during so long a period. If it be true that in the mul- titude of councillors there is wisdom surely it is not wise to deprive the Colony of the bene- fit of an institution which is pres...

THE VOLUNTEERS. [TIMES.] [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 16 July 1860

THE VOLUNTEERS. [THIES.] The return of better weather for drilling and the approach of tho time when Her Majesty intends holding a grand roview of the metro- politan regiments in Hyde Park seem to have stimulated the activity of the new levies to the utmost. There is scarcely a day in the week on which some one or more of the London corps do not as- semble in the evening either for drill or marching out, and overy week shows a marked improve- ment in tho solidity and ease with which the evolutions are gone through. The London Brigade, the Westminster, three or four of the various Surrey corps, the West Middlesex, the Scottish, the Victoria, ami others have alreaJy made great progresa, and will require but a few days of steady brigade drill to raako them alnipst, if not quite, equal to the regular rifle regiments in tho service. To civilians, who have generally regarded a soldier's drill and discipline as a sort of mystery only to bo over- came by years of practice, the really astoni...

LOUIS NAPOLEON AND DISRAELI. [FROM THE SATURDAY REVIEW.] [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 17 July 1860

LOUIS NAPOLEON AND DISRAELI. [FROM THE SATUEDAY BEVIEW.] Futuro ages will rank among the strangest ro- mances of real life the confident youth and the triumphant manhood of Napoleon HI. and Benjamin Disraeli. It is not wonderful that rumours (whether well or ill-founded Who can say?) should for some weeks past have spoken of a secret sympathy between two spirits so audacious and so vulgarly successful. It is not our purpose to speculate upon the probabilities of a political Maison which, did it exist, might flatter the vanity of the Conservative leader, but would only serve to amuse his countrymen. But the possibly baseless whispers which are floating about on the subject suggest at least the reflection how like hi many points have been the fortunes of two men who have played a striking and an equally reputable part in the annals of their time. The means by which both have grasped the object of their ambition are not dissimilar. And if the con- trast alfords tho slightest gratificat...
