WRECKS OF THE URIG PHANTOM, SCHOONERS MARGARET AND FREDERICK .GRIFFITHS, AND CUTTER AGNES. July ¿3th.-My telegram of last evening, re- porting tho wreck off the port of the brig Phantom and BOhooner Margaret, being necessarily somewhat hurried and brief, I now give the particulars more at length. It Mew a strong gale here yesterday morning from the south-south-west, and about noon several vessel«, most of thom driven bock by stress of weather (naring sailed from hero the day previous), were endeavouring to enter the port, .there being at the timo a heavy sea outside. The .brig Phantom, Captain Hayward, was then working .in, and was on the starboard tack, standing towards JJobby's, when theschooner Margaret, being on the port tack, and endeavouring to go to windward of :the brig, crossed tho hitter's hawse, and thereby lost lier own masts mid becamo unmanageable _her decks being cleared ol' every thing by the ?cjllisiou.

THE WAR IN NEW ZEALAND. THE BATTLE OF PUKETAKAUERE. [SOUTHERN CROSS.] [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 24 July 1860
THE WAR IN NEW ZEALAND. &nbsp; THE BATTLE OF PUKETAKAUERE. &nbsp; [SOUTHERN CROSS.] This battle—the word skirmish, which has been applied to it, is a misnomer—appears to be the worst reverse that we have suffered in all our engagements with the natives. Okaihau was bad, for we failed to take a pa that was almost defence- less ; but our credit was redeemed by Captain Denny, &nbsp; who turned a deaf ear to the recall, and scattered to the winds a strong party of the enemy who had lain in ambush. The loss at Ohaeowhai was more severe than that which we have now just suffered, but no discredit was attached to the ill-success save only to the officer in command, who committed an act of madness, launching men forward to pull down a strong palisade with their hands. We did &nbsp; not lose prestige there among the natives, but abso- lutely gained more than we had before. It is a fact, that the defenders of the pa were struck with a sort of terror at seeing th...
LATE EUROPEAN NEWS. (Translated for the Sydney Morning Herald from the Constitutionnel of the l9th May) [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 24 July 1860
LATE EUROPEAN NEWS. (Translated for the Sydney Morning Herald from the Constitutionnel of the l'Jlh May J We extract for the information of our readers the following passages from the columns of the Constitutionnel relative to the expedition of Garibaldi and the present state of Sicily : We have received intelligence from a trust- worthy source announcing to us that, up to noon on the 16th ol May, no fighting had yet taken place between the Royal (Neapolitan) troops, and the volunteers who landed at Mai sala. At Naples it was even doubted whether Garibaldi was actually in Sicily at all. . The same channel of intelligence informs us that General Lanza, who passes for a good soldier of a moderate character, had been depatched to Palermo with the most extensive powers. Elsewhere the same paper says : - lu the midst of the uncertainty which yet hangs over the affairs of the two Sicilies, it" is not surprising that the wildest rumours slmuid sometimes find belief. Thus we have-even been ...
AFFAIRS IN TARANAKI. [FROM THE SYDNEY EMPIRE.] [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 24 July 1860
AFFAIRS IN TARANAKI. [FROIM THE SYDNEY EMPIRE.] Our Nelson Correspondent, a settler of New Ply- &nbsp; mouth, and who arrived in Sydney by the Prince Alfred yesterday morning, has called at our office and communicated a good many interesting par- ticulars respecting the state of matters in the disturbed districts of New Zealand. He is, we believe, a trustworthy man ; he is well known, and has given us references of the highest respectability. The account which he gives of the state of the New Plymouth settlers is truly de- plorable. They have all been driven into the town, which is now crowded to excess. Their houses, many of thom substantial erections, have been, so far as it is known, almost entirely des- troyed by the insurgent natives. Their sheep, horses, and cattle, which of course had to be left without any one to attend to them, have been des- troyed by the natives, or dispersed to a great ex- tent. He fully bears out all that has been said of the misconduct of Colon...

THE MERCURY. TUESDAY MORNING, JULY 24, 1860. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 24 July 1860
THE MERCURY. &nbsp; TUESDAY MORNING, JULY 24, 1860. THE Hon. Captain LANGDON when in England left no stone unturned to bring under the notice of those in whose hands the information was likely to be turned to a good account the many great advantages possessed by Tasmania as a field of emigration and the many induce- ments we could hold out to people desirous of immigrating. When we consider how large an amount of money has been expended by this Colony in order to secure the benefits to be derived from the steady influx of labor, and contrast that amount witli the scarely percepti- ble influence its expenditure has exercised upon our material progress, we are compelled to acknowledge that the system we have all along adopted has been radically bad and altogether inefficacious. Impressed with this conviction we have over and over again pointed out to the government the desirability of adopting a more enlightened and a more modern policy. Hitherto we have done little else than ...
