SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 18 July 1860

SYDNEY. ' ïVoiy Sydney wo liavo received advices to tho , 10th instant. The Morning Herald reports of the local markets : Business during tho week lins been remarkably quiet, and tho transactions havo generally been confined to purchases to meet present wants, or orders for the country. Tito «1th ol' the month passed oil" pretty well, and -.vc have only two failures to record, viz. :-Messrs. Bowden and Peden, mid Messrs. AY. Jolly and Co. There is, however, still great distrust existing in tho mercantile community, and most of tho holders of goods are unwilling to sell except for cash ; consequently, although a check is put to speculative transactions, the little , business that is done is sound and healthy. It is to bo hoped that now the folly and rottenness of the accommodation system has been seen, the , banks will bo more cautious in their discounting, " " -and so aid in preventing a commercial crisis which injures almost every olio engaged in trade, and benefits generally only ...

THE IRISH EXODUS AND ITS CONSEQUENCES. (TIMES MAY 3.) [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 18 July 1860

*>.? . I., I-. ?? THE HUSH EXODUS AND ITS CONSE» QUENCES. (TIMES MAY 3.1 ** The Irish emigration still continues, at a rate which threatens results far beyond the calcu- lations of the economist, perhaps own the wishes of the statesman. It is in» longer tbe overflow of a vessel full to repletion, but the operation of a syphon which drains to llie very bottom. If that syphon may be regarded in any visible form it is the railway system, which in the eyes of every Irishman appear» to have one common terminus across the Atlantic. He ,g$es trains of hopefu1, if not happy, faces going off to the Land of Promise, from which relations and friends have si nt not only in- vitations but the means of accepting them. A train starts to catch an emi^'iMiit-vcssel as regularly as in England to catch a steamei across llie Channel. The emigrant-ships have no longer to peep into every little port to pick up their passengers. They assemble at Curk, and pass in a continuous stream, if it may be so ca...

VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 18 July 1860

VICTORIA. The effect of the Amendments made by the As- sembly in the Land Bill as it caine down from the Upper House is thus described by the Argus : Ministers, with or without the assistance of tho Comer, have done little to better tho gift of tho Upper House. In nearly all the points where tho amendments of the Council have been thrown out the changes have been significantly for the worse. And it is curious to observe how different is the tone taken up by either House in dealing with this important question. That difference has been nil to the advantage of the less popidar body. AVhilo the Assembly has insisted on making the Land Bill a platform for a series of political "free fights," the Council has steadily adhered to the treatment of it as a practical, domestic question. And every one but the fiera» agitators of the Eastern Market will admit that the Upper Houso has acted throughout in a better and moro patriotic sph'it than thu Lower. But the Assembly, which represents the pe...

~TE"~MERCUEY.; AATÜDNESDAY MORNING, JOLT l8, 18GO. Ar two o'clock this day His Excellency tho GovEKXon will open Parliament in person. After so long a recess it is not surprising that considerable interest should ho felt by the public in this event. There ave one or two mutters, also, about which people aro very anxious to know more than they already know, and they look to obtain this information through the only channel open to them-tho Parliament of the Colony. The principal topic of conver- sation during the last day or two has beeu the GovEttxon's Speech. AVhat will it contain ? What matters will it ndvert to ? After ten mouths taciturnity, what will Ministers have to say for themselves ? Will they be prepared to render a satisfactory account of their steward- ship ? There can be no harm ia people specu- lating upon these matters ; indeed it evidences an interest in public affairs which wo are very glad to see manifested.

For what you have done, ma}' the Lord bless you! I think, Sir, if you would be so kind as to either «co or petition His Excellency the Governor, he might grant my request, and have the remains of the body brought to Melbourne.

' Adjourned meeting for judgment. ,, Mr. Crisp for Insolvent. , The Commissioner gave judgment in this ease. The discharge of the insolvent was opposed on two grounds, first, contracting a debt with Brent £ Westbrook without reasonable expectations' of ' paying the same, and, second, undue preference. With respect to tho latter ground His Honor did not consider that it had been sustained, but the first ground had been sustained, and in order to mark the sense of tho court. His Honor should postpone the insolvent's discharge for six months, but as this case was very different to many, which hod come before him, ho should not carry his deci- sion further. It had been stated by Mr. Crisp that the insolvent's dealings with Brent & Westbrook had been to a veiy large amount, about £10,000, but their profit, at 6 per cent., would only amount to £500, and they found the insol...
