Opinions [?]t the Press. RUSSIA'S POWER OF RESISTANCE. (From the Times.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 13 September 1854

painui nt trjî $rfS3. nusBiA's rowcn op resistance. (From tho Times.) Russia relit s on her powers of resistance far more than on her powers of attack, and, when thrown altogether upon the defensive she hopes to weary out and exhaust the perseverance of Europe. For this reason, although she may have renounced her rash enterprise upon Turkey, and recalled her troops from the Danube, it is by no,means the more ¡probable that she contemplates a speedy termination of these hosti- lities by submitting to the terms on which i alone peace can be re-esttd)lishcd «ml secured. 1 hese considerations cannot fail to have great weight with the Austrian government in determining the course they ¡ may pursue, if the evacuation of the princi plalities is tendered to it by Russia in satis- faction of her demands. Such a state of things, unaccompanied by any positive and ndmissiable overtures of peace on the part of Russia, would have most of the incon- veniences of war without tile prospect of a spee...

EUROPEAN SUMMARY. ENGLISH. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 13 September 1854

EUROPEAN SUMMARY. ENGLISH. Political-The news hy the Over- land Mail possesses some particular points of inteiest beyond those briefly glanced at in our columns of extracts issued in our Extraordinary of Saturday. To colonial readers, the most important is the debate in the Mouse of Lords, on the Legislative Council Bill for Canada. This Council had hitherto been a nomi- nee one ; but the Canadians desiring it should be elective, the change was sanc- tioned in the House of Lords, by a ma- jority of 2Í, in a house of 102. The debate or» the second reading, drew some rather unexpected expressions of opinion from Lords Ellenborough and Brougham, in favor of preparing the way for a recognition of Canadian Indepen- dence, which led to some strong dis- claimers of any such proceeding from the Duke of Newcastle. The measure is simply " an enabling measure, under which the Legislature of Canada may constitute the upper house in any way tliey think proper." Lord Lyndhurst had again distin- g...

FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 13 September 1854

FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. FRANCE. The empire was quiet and apparently contented. Commercial affairs were in, a satisfactory condition. The speculations on the Bourse had involved many of the outside' dealers; and failures to the amount of 3,000,000 francs, or £125,000 bad taken place. Medical men were scarce, and private practitioners had been called upon to do duty in the/army.               M. de Persigny^ minister of the interior, had retired; and was succeeded by M. de Billiatt, a man of ability, not troubled with much principle. srAiN, ? Here a military revolution had com- menced. General O'Donnel, at the head of 4000 men, fought a doubtful battle, near Madrid, with General Lara, who-^com- manded for the queen.

THE NEW SECRETARY FOR THE COLONIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 16 September 1854

THE NEW SECRETARY FOR THE COLONIES. I The appointment of Sir George Grey as Colonial Secretary reems, as we have before mentioned, to hare given little satisfaction at home. The antecedents of the Right Hon. gentlemen are not in his favour. He was under secretary in the same depart- ment during Lord Glenelgs unhappy ad- ministration and had the honor of partici pating in the provocation which led to a rebellion in the Canadas. According to the rule in such cases he vacated his seat in Parliament by his acceptance of office, and was re-elected by the people of Mor- peth, to whom he made the customary speech on the 17th of June. The speech was a curious one. He told the electors he had been for 22 years engaged in pub- lic life, that he had been applied to by the Aberdeen ministry to join them and had declined, that he then felt he was not bound to take the responsibilities of office, that on the threatened resignation by Lord Palmerston in December 1852 of the seals of the Home Offic...
