THE COMMERCIAL TREATY. (TIMES 10TH MAY.) [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 20 July 1860

THE COMMERCIAL TREATY. [thies IOtu May.] The Court Circular has " been requested to state that the British Commissioners for the negotiation of the French Tariff have their office at No. 82, Eue de l'Université, Paris." It is a very proper fact to be made public, and we aive our best aid to diffuse the knowledge of it. In ignorance of the new arrangements, uninformed persons might have gone to the old British Embassy, in the Rue du Faubourg St. HonorcS Qf course, wo all know that this latter Embassy was only a pretentious sham. No one is, we hope, so ignorant as not to be aware that it was only a mouldering specimen of the old rotten system of diplomacy. All well-informed prople knew that the real business vyas done elsewhere. In some smoll room in a back street, where tljere was nothing but a deal desk and a few high stools, there were two or three long-headed, square-faced, quick-eyed men of tho true business sort, shrewd at a bargain, and never at fault as to a fact, wearing no s...

REPRESENTATION OF LAUNCESTON. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 20 July 1860

REPRESENTATION OF LAUNCESTON. We believe that Mr. James Matthews, one of the representatives of the town of Launceston in the House of Assembly, is about to resign bis seat. The reasons assigned hy Mr. Matthews are, we are informed, entirely of a private nature. In the event of a vacancy occurring, and from what we have heard it is likely to occur, Captain Gruronis is to be brought forward to supply that vacancy. It is very satisfactory to know that the electors of the Northern Capital are at fysl resojyed to be represented in the Parliament by respectable men. VVo wish some other constituencies we .could name would imitate so laudable an example.

SHALL TOM SAYERS HAVE A STATUE? (FROM THE LONDON LEADER.) [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 20 July 1860

SHALL TOM SAYERS HAVE A STATUE ? [FROM THE LONDON LEADER.] This is by no means an impertinent question at a moment when the fame of " the gallant Tom " is eclipsing that of all the warlike heroes of the world. Were our fathers in 1815 more stirred by the news of Wellington's defeat of the Corsican Boy at Waterloo than we, their sons, are now stirred by the accounts of the Battle of Farnborough ? George the Fourth embraced the dirty groom who brought him the intelli- gence, and his faithful metropolitan subjects lighted up a few extra candles, and ran out into the streets to raise the voice of rejoicing. We will not imagine Her Gracious Majesty giving way to any such demonstration of delight on hearing that Tom Sayers had gallantly main- tained the honour of England in the P.R. But have we not lighted up our candles and crowded the streets, and shouted, and tele- graphed, and altogether worked ourselves up into a state of the highest excitement ? Did we do more, even as much, when we...
