THE RESULT OF THE ELECTION. (To the Editor of the Illawarra Mercury.) [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 7 April 1856
THE RESULT OF THE ELECTION. (To the Editor of the Illawarra Mercury.) Sir — Having taken a deep interest in the contest, now brought to a close, in the return of Messrs. Osborne and Marks, anil the rejection of the other candidates, you will, perhaps, favour me with the insertion of a few parting words. One.— I am satisfied in part, and dissatisfied in part; In the return of Mr. Marks there is cause to congratulate the district. In securing him they have secured one of the right men, and in the rejection of Mr. Waugh, they have lost one; and that the ablest of the right men. This. latter issue 1 very much regret, and I feel quite .sure the time will come when the district will regret it. However, that is their matter, not mine, and I have no reason to dictate. At the same time the truth must be told, and there we leave it to find its way preparatory for a good time coming. Mr. Waugh' s defeat is one of which neither he nor his friends need be ashamed. From the numbers polled for him...

THE COMMUNICATION OF KNOWLEDGE. (To the Editor of the Illawarra Mercury.) [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 7 April 1856
THE COMMUNICATION OF KNOWLEDGE. (To the Editor of the Illawarra Mercury.) Sir — To impart knowledge is an object worthy of great minds, for they cannot but think it important to diffuse that which is cal culated to make men wiser and better. There is indeed, much difficulty in the task, as we do not know how to suppose ourselves in the place of him we would teach ; we do not enter into his manner of thinking. On the contrary, we are apt to attribute to him our ideas, and thus furnishing our own method of argumen tation, to lead liini into erior, even while we are discussing incon testable truths. To be understood, we must convey knowledge in a simple style, and in an interesting form. These statements may be well illus trated by comparing together geometry and algebra. In the former, simple facts are related at length, without any regard to conciseness; but in the hitter which may he emphatically called the science of symbols, the same information is given in as short a way as possi...

REPORTED CONSPIRACY IN RUSSIA. The Paris Patrie says that, to- the external difficulties she has to contend with, Russia is about to become a prey to internal dissensions of a most serious character. Private information enables tbe Patrie to state that a conspiracy has broken out in the heart of the empire to overthrow the government of the Czar. ? Members of the first families -are as usual to be found among the conspirators!. The Patrie, not indicating the source from whence this intelligence extraordinary is derived,, it should., be received.. with the. greatest caution.

THE EMPEROR NAPOLEON AND THE PEACE RUMOURS. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 14 April 1856
THE EMPEROR NAPOLEON-. AND THE PEACE RUMOURS! The Paris correspondent of the Daily JVaus says, ' From all I can learn it appears thafc the^ Emperor is 'surrounded by .a very strong peace party. Many' of his oldest and most influential friends say to him, in substance, this : ' Sire,, what more have yon to gain by the war ? You have' revived the prestige of your name ; you have given- the French army an- abundant feast of glory; yon have raised your influence in Europe to the, highest* pitch. What more can you want? The continuance of the war implies further loans, and a continuance of sacrifices ou the pan of all classes »f seciety, which, the people may perhaps ill sup port, especially during the privations which are to- be seriously ap prehended in the course of the ensuing, whiter.' ? To all this advice the Emperor maintains the ^attitude of a Sovereign struggling passively with his- counsellors. He cannot but per-, cave that no peace but one disgraceful to France and England cou...
A RUSSIAN VIEW OF THE PEACE RUMOURS. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 14 April 1856
- A KUSSIAN VIEW OF THE PEACE RUMOURS. he Nord publishes an article from which we extract the fol lowing ; — The rumours of pence, yesterday favorably received, are to-day regarded with incredulity. The Globe and the Times affirm that negociations have been re-opened by Austria, but they add, that Russia has not yet made any proposals. It seems to- us that there is nothing*; to be surprised at in that. After the- Conferences of Vienna, Russia saw the conditions she adhered to- repudiated, and it is moreover announced that the allies will this time demand more than they, then pretended to demand. Owing to what has been '.published in England and France about the exhaustion of Russia, many people are quite disposed to believe tbat llussia is implpring peace. Those good folks completely delude themselves. Undoubtedly llussia would prefer peace to war ; she would gladly accept peace, but she does not sue for it as a beggar. Russia, on whom the war is inflicting heavy losses, is not igno...

Troops are levied, assembled, discmWdied, marched to the north, or to the south, or retrace their steps ; diplomatic, agents, or secret emissaries are despatched in all directions ;: but all is done mysteriously.
