COLONEL GOLD. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 25 July 1860
COLONEL GOLD. AMONGST the items of New Zealand intelligence which we published yesterday, was a parugruph from the Sydney Morning Herald referring to the much-impugned conduct, of Colonel GOLD A gentleman just arrived from the seat of war, has, it appears, intimated to our Sydney Con- temporary, that public opinion on the spot as to the merits of that officer is much divided, and that whilst one party charges him with an utter failure of duty, his friends defend him on the ground that ho is pursuing a policy which, if not popular or productive of immediate striking results, is deliberate and sagacious. It ia suggested that Colonel GOLD'S object is to ensure a series of small defeats to the British arms, in order to betray the Maories into a false confidence, and thus entice them into the field in numbers, under cii'cumstauct33 that would eave thom no chanco of victory. The defence. is one in all respects extraordinary con- sidering tho facts. The case' it suggests for Colonel GOLD i...

OUR HORSE STOCK. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 25 July 1860
OUR HORSE STOCK. TUE Sydney Morning Herald makes the follow- ing reference to the proposal to hold the next Champion Race in Tasmania. Our contemporary slightly misunderstands us when he makes us regret the " decline of the Van Diemen's Land stock." It was the decline of the Turf we sorrowed over. That this is a circumstance involving as one of its necessary results a depre- ciation in the quality of our Breed of Horses, is of course patent, and although ive do not admit that it has yet operated to produce that result, it was the apprehension that it would do so that, amongst other reasons, induced our suggestion that an attempt should be made to revive the Tasmanian Turf by fixing on this island as the locale of the next Champion Race. With this explanatory note we quote our contemporary's remark s : The Ilobart Town Mercury, of the 3rd instant, notices a movement which has commenced in that city for the revival of the turf, and for the holding of tho next annual champion race in T...

LOWER COURT. BEFORE His Honor Mr. Justice Horne. The Crown Solicitor conducted the prosecutions. EMBEZZLEMENT. Edward Rowe was charged with embezzling two sums of 2s. 3d. respectively, the monies of his employer, Thomas Alfred Jones, baker, Murray street. This case has been recently published in our police report. The prisonor was in the service of &nbsp; the prosecutor, and was employed to carry out bread to the customers from one of whom he had received, as was alleged, 2s. for which he had not accounted. The defence set up by the prisoner was that he was in partnership with the prosecutor. A witness named James Cowie, who was ex- amined at the Police Office, was called by the prisoner to show that the prosecutor had served him, Cowie, in the same way as he had served the prisoner. His Honor said that could be no evidence in this &nbsp; case. What if the prosecutor had proceeded against twenty other persons how could that affect &nbsp; the prisoner ? Having...
A Christian Address by the Society of Friends on the subject of War. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 25 July 1860
A Christian Address by the Society of Friends on the subject of War. IT is in the love of Christ, and in tho spirit of true patriotism, that wo moko this appeal. Our country is dear to us; wo honour our Sovereign, and prizo our freo institutions ; and wo dosiro that our national policy, and that of other professedly Christian countries, may accord with tho spirit and precepts of our Holy Redeemer, who panie " i?qt to destroy men's ljvos, but) to sa.vo tliem," The events of late years, as well as what is pass- ing avound us, have led us very seriously to re- view tho grounds of our Christian testimony in this matter. But this review has only confirmed the conviction, which wo dura not shrink from avowing, thal all war, on whatever plea of policy or of necessity, is unlawful under tho Gospel Dis- pensation. May graco and strength bo given ns in our daily intercourse among men to act consist- ently therewith, and to show out of a good con- versation our works with meekness of wisdom, W...

THE MERCURY. WEDNESDAY MORNING, JULY 24, 1860. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 25 July 1860
THE MERCURY. WEDNESDAY MORNING, JULY 24. 1860. THE officials-in-Parliament question, which furnishes Mr. GREGSON with a missile to throw at the head of Mr. NAIRN, is not a new one. It has long troubled the political world, and is likely to trouble it still. All the colonial Parliaments have discussed it and taken some action upon it. Our own has gone as far as any. A Bill excluding from the legislature all persons holding office in the public service otherwise than by political tenure, passed the House of Assembly by a large majority in the Session of 1858. It was rejected by the Council, not from any disapproval of its pro- visions, but on a point of privilege. As it affected the constitution of the Upper House, it was maintained that it should have originated there. It was obvious that it could not originate in both chambers, and as the etiquette of the position was imperious, the measure fell to the ground. The Assembly, however, attained its object by a side wind. It adopted a r...
