[?] IN AUSTRALIA.D [FROM THE TIMES.] [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 19 July 1860

MISMANAGEMENT IN AUSTRALIA. [FROM THE TIMES.] We have often called attention to the unfor- tunate position in which our mismanagement has placed the Australian colonies, and to the bitter fruits that they are likely to gather from it. We showed, on a recent occasion, how the mono- poly of land which the Government of England   had vested in favor of the pastoral classes had not only dwarfed the energies of these young com- munities, but had driven them into a course of   ultra democratic legislation, which must in no long time force upon them governments formed   after, the American instead of the English type,   and by so doing both weaken their connection   with ourselves, and expose them to countless   evils. But inexorable justice does not stop here,   and we who have inflicted this fatal injury on     our remote dependency, are not destined to escape the ill effe...

THE COMET. [PEOM THE OVENS CONSTITUTION.] The reappearance of a comet, andthoprobcbflity that this, our newest visitor, is the same fiery traveUer through space that intimidated the Emperor Charles the Great, and is supposed to have been visible in the years 104, 395, 975, and 1GG4, as well as in 155G, and was expected, but did not appear, in 1848, wiU again attract much general attention, besides giving fresh objects of study, research, and calculation, to the professors of astronomy. The non-appearance in 1848 of this comet luis been ascribed by astronomers to the influence exercised by planets on its passago through the realms of space. We beUevo it has been computed that tho disturbing influence lias, in this case lengthened tho ordinary revolution of 292 years to a period of 304. Assuming the correctness of thoso calculations, thero exists a. strong probability that the comet seen in the northern beavens on Saturday and Sunday nights, and again last night, is really the same fi...
