REPRESENTATION OF LAUNCESTON. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 23 July 1860

REPRESENTATION -OF LAUNCESTON. It appears we were in error in stating that Mr. James Matthews was about to resign his seat in the Ilouse of Assembly us one of the repre- sentatives of Launceston. The gentleman from whom we received the information stated that he had received a letter from Launceston, on the statement contained in which ho placed the most implicit reliance, announcing the fact as we gave it. Mr. Matthews, however, sent us a telegram on Saturday denying the truth of our announcement and requesting us to contradict it. The honorable member has been suffering from the influenza ; and this is the only reason for his not having as jet taken his seat in tho House of Assembly.

THE MERCURY. MONDAY MORNING,. JULY 23, 1860. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 23 July 1860

THE MERCURY. MONDAY MORNING, JULY 23, 1860. Our intelligence from New Zealand, though sufficiently precise to put us in possession of the main facts of the battle of Pukatakauere, is at present lacking in the materials that are necees- sary to enable us to pass a final judgment on the conduct of Colonel GOLD—the officer com- manding in chief. On the strength of our telegraphic despatches we spoke of this officer as necessarily either a coward or a fool. There is nothing in the accounts before us to give us the slightest apprehension that we have treated him with injustice. But we feel that they are too meagre and too hastily written, under the influence of local excitement, to warrant us in accepting as fully proven charges that ought to subject a soldier in commund to he shot, if brought home to him. We are the more anxious to say this, because we have been reminded that it was Colonel MURRAY and not Colonel GOLD who was directly answerable for the desertion of the volunteers in th...

THE NEW ZEALAND WAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 23 July 1860

THE NEW ZEALAND WAR. The Sydney Morning Herald, of Wednesday last, has the following account of the fight at Waitara, from the correspondent of the Nelson Examiner :- About daybreak on Wednesday, 27th June, a   force of 200 men in all, from the 40th and Naval Brigade, set out from the camp with the big guns, and took up position on the side of the pah next the camp. These men had with them Major Nelson, Captain Richards of the 40th, Captain Seymour, and first Lieut. Braddiscome of the Pelorus, and Lieutenant M'Naughten of artillery. Another party of one hundred and fifty men was sent round between the pah and the river and, leaving a detachment in the flat, came up in the rear of the pah, on the inland side. The pah was thus surrounded, so that none coming out could escape from one force or another. The main force in front opened fire with artillery at seven a.m., and, after some firing, effected a small breach. But the ground was known to be furrowed with old entrenchm...

THE SUEZ CANAL SCHEME. (TIMES 18TH MAY.) [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 24 July 1860

THE SUEZ CANAL SCHEME. I (times 18th May.) The first great step of a grand adventure has at length been reported to the world,. In a magnificent hall, brilliantly lighted and resplendent with decoration, M. Lesseps, the renowned promoter of the Suez Canal scheme, appeared before a Parisian audience on Tuesday last, and declared that the business of the company had actually commenced. It was the first general meeting ever convened of the shareholders in this famous concern, and aa M. Lesseps glanced round the rona,, and counted the full talo of proprietors required to constitute a legal gathering, his heart, we oan well imagine, must have rejoiced within him. His gratification, indeed, was clearly perceptible ; for in producing amid the cheers of his audience an elaborate report he was so indulgent as to pass a high cnlogium " on the commercial classes" of Engtand. To be sure, a panegyric thus Hmitod may not be absolutely flattering ; but it is moro agreoabl«, at any rate, than unmod...
