FORTIFICATIONS OF NICHOLAIEFF. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 14 April 1856

FORTIFICATIONS OF. NICHOLAIEFF.' Travellers from Nichokieff state-that it is impossible to recognise that place, in consequence of the great change which has taken place within the last few months. The fortifications commenced, at the point where the Ingul joins the .^ug,. at -a distance of five versts from. the town. Three rows of fortifications protect the approaches, and the town itself is- defended by more- than four hundred guns of different calibre. . 'Whole streets -of narrow build ings have been pulled down,, and vast barracks, hospitals,-, and . provisision depots erected in their places. The old Admiralty building lias been changed into a star fort, which bears the name of Admiral Laz iroft'. The greatest activity is s-tilL displayed, and the bridge in the neighbourhood of the village of Barvaroffka is constantly loaded with waggons conveying cannon and pro- - visions.

Cite atib: i-totdj£S. LOYE AT FIRST SIGHT; OR, THE. EISII OUT OF WATER. Chapter II. When love lays hold of a mathematician, it is apt to play strange tricks with him. This is an axiom which, unlike the patent safety cabs, cannot be overturned. Aware of the propriety of keeping' the state of his affec tions a secret, yet wholly unable to do so, Paul began to look about him. for a confidant, and at last bethought him i of an old college friend who, having graduated a few \ months before, had left Cambridge, and taken a curacv in ! the neighbourhood of Fenslanton, which, as all the world knows, or should know, is situated about nine miles from the university, in the heart of one of the most sterile and desolate districts of England. To this friend, whom he had all hut forgotten till now, Paul resolved to repair ; and accordinly he set out on foot — for, as has been already observed, lie was a prodigious walker — with the intention of reaching the parsonage in time for dinner.

A DREAM. WRITTEN IN ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 21 April 1856

A DREAM. ?Written in Enqlaiid. In sleep last night a pleasant dream did enter Hie portals of my mind : the dreary sky, Tho mournful gales, and the chill rains of winter, Were changed to summer's greenest luxury. A lovely dream, wheiein my soul's delight Was as the waving plume of yon leafy elm, 'Which' the soft winds antl sunbeams overwhelm With fairy music and with go'.den light. I stood beside a verdant hedgerow twined With fragrant-jasmine mid the pale wild rose, While tminn acacias waved uuon the wind Thoir milk-white blossoms and thei:- graceful boughs. Aiid she who knows not, cares not, that I love her, (0 that such thoughts did in her bosom run | As in that fleeting vision seemed to move her !) ? - 'Was there, — but heard not the blithe lark above her Onanting his farewell to the sun; r-.-.. Saw not the deepening crimsons of tho we.it, Or the gay insects floating in the beam : I'elt not the breeze that fann'd her struggling breast, And moved the clouds o'er the sun's setiing ...

THE VERY. LATEST. Berlin, Friday Evening, Jan. 11, 18uG. - It seems to be known here that the reply of Russia to Count Esterhazie's propositions is far from a decided nega- - tive. In our diplomatic circles along series of negotiations is looked for. The Prussian Ministry is getting exceedingly nervous ; about a threatened general blockade of the Baltic by the ? \ 111 1 ? Allied puwers. It is said that one part of Colonel Manteuffel's mission., to Vieima is to ascertain whether Austria will give her support to Prussia in case of such a violation of her neutrality, , Meanwhile, Prussia is redoubling her efforts to inducev., -.? Bussia to come to terms. The King of Holland has added his efforts to those' of his relative the King of Prussia, to urge on the- Czar the necessity and policy of peace.

THE AMERICAN DIFFICULTY. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 21 April 1856

THE AMERICAN DIFFICULTY. {From ihe San Francisco Herald, February 22.) Our latest dates from the Atlantic States indicate that President Pierce is determined to prosecute the Cramptoti difficulty with Great Britain to a definitive settlement. In reply to the demands of redress which have been made upon the British Government for the violation of our neu trality laws by the enlistment of recruits for the Crimea* Lord Palmerston has signified that no other reparation would be made than a simple acknowledgment of the wrong. The Ministry have refused to withdraw Mr. Orampton or tiie Lonsonls who were implicated in the scheme, and therefore our own Government may be com pelled to resort to the unpleasent alternative of giving to them an unqalifled dismissal. To do this, it seemsto.be necessary that Mr. Buchanan should first^be withdrawn from the Court of St. James, and steps are about to be taken to that effect.
