GAVAN DUEEY. A meeting will be held on Thursday next at noon, at the Hotel of Mr. Edward Elliott's in this town, for the purpose of entering into and promoting a contribution to the Qualification-Fund now forming at Melbourne to enable Mr. Duffy to take his seat as a member of the Legisla ture of the colony of Victoria. Amongst our residents' at Sydney and elsewhere in this colony, are many who admire the political principles and opinions of Gavan Duffy, and are desirous that an op portunity be at once afforded him of taking a part in the legislation of Victoria, and of enunciating and expounding the views for the public benefit of the Australian colonies which he entertains, and which he can bring to bear with so much talent and effect. :? We trust therefore, the invitation will be well responded to, and that a full attendance at the meeting with an ample contribution, will testify how greatly Mr. Dufjey is respected, and his principles admired, even at this distance from Melbourne...

THE PROSPECTS OF AGRICULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 12 May 1856

THE PROSPECTS OF AGRICULTURE. ' (From, the Geelong Advertiser,) The nature of the agricultural interest, until fully developed,; we have endeavoured to show, to be a necessity; to .the well-being of the colony. If the culture of the land be a necessity, an avowed, and accepted essential of permanent prosperity, let us look to. ib with earnestness, and act with vigor, to .assist in placing it in iv healthy position. We. think that few would care to controvert what wo have advanced in sincerity, with singleness of motive, ior ' the public good ; but we are aware that dissenients exist on this question, full in tho faith. of English Free Tr.ide notions, who can not shake oft'belief indoctrinated, nor look on the iutersts of this colony, except subjectively to those of England.

Sprit of the Colonial Press. SPEED THE PLOUGH! [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 12 May 1856

%irit ft (Calfliiial }5im SPEED THE PLOUGH ! ( From the Argus.) It is customary to speak of California as presenting the only: parallel to the rapid progress of this country. In many respects the difficulties, embarrassments, vicissitudes, and. prosperity of both States have been identical. The discovery- of goid- which founded one country, added in at least an equals degree to the prosperity of the other, and the phases of their national progress bear so remarkable a resemblauco that a comparison of their past, histories points strikingly- to the future .destiny- of each. The circumstance that a government, such as it was; existed in Victoria before it came the rival of California, preserved us from the atrocities which a- wholly unorganised society permitted in that country; but we have little to pride ourselves upon, except the E reservation of law an:l order, beyond what has been accomplished y our trans-Pacific competitors. It is very remarkable that, not withstanding the lawle...

VIENNA. The Globe of Saturday eyening copies ;the following letter from the Post Gazette of Frankfort, Of 11th February:— i ' We are asstired that a treaty of commerce is certainly to be concluded between Bussia^nd the Western Powers, after the signing of, the » treaty of peace, and that its principal features . will be; the opening of the Russian frontiers to the commerce of. all nations, and the sup pression of the regulations which prevent the establish ment of foreign commercial houses in Russia, and the purchase of .

It is believed that the Russian Government will the more readily accede to these measures since it has discovered, during the last few years, the inconvenience joi* the system which it has hitherto maintained.'

Paris, Friday, 6, p.m. Much agitation was produced to day on the Paris Bourse* indeed it migh be called a panicj in consequence of the telegraph announcing that Consols had fallen 2 per cent. The effect here was severely felt at first, but the funds rallied afterwards. Various reports, some of them absurd. The complete rupture with the United States, the delivery of his passports to Mr. Crampton, the departure of Mr. Buchanan from London, disturbances in some large -?towns in England, the fall of the ministry, the conversa tion of a large amount of Exchequer Bills into Three per Cents., were the principle reasons assigned by public ru mour for the fall.

ONE DAY LATER NEWS FROM ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 12 May 1856

ONE DAY LATER NEWS FROM ENGLAND. ( From the Argus, May 3.) The Salem, from Cork, brings us one day later . news from England. The intelligence thus received, however, is both meagre and unimportant, and is derived from,, a stray copy of the Cork Daily Reporter of the 18th, February. Count Cavour, the representative of the King of Sardinia, had arrived in Paris, in order to take part in the Peace Conference. The Asxemblee Nationale (the Parisian organ of the Russo-legitimatist party) was en deavouring to, inspire a feeling of distrust in the public mind of the French capital by suggesting that the defen sive works in course of construction at Portsmouth couUt' not be intended as a protection either against Russian or American fleets. It is said that a difference has arisen in the Sardinian Cabinet on the question of concessions to the Holy See. It is understood that two additional regiments are to bs immediately despatched to British North America, to act, in case their services shou...

RUSSIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 12 May 1856

RUSSIA. The latest dates we have from St. Petersburg^ the 6th instant, only brings us to the morning of the day on which the Grand Duke Constantine was to espouse the or thodox Grand Douches Alexandra Petrowna, ci-devant Protestant Princess Alexandrina of Oldenburgh. The expectation of peace, of course, excites very differ ent feelings in different classes ; of only two can tfie sen timents be predicated with any certainty. The commer cial classes desire the return of peace ; the military pro fession desires the continuation of the war. The nobility appear :o be devided between those whom the pecuniary sacrific have alrerdy disgusted with the war, and those whose riotic sentiments make them d'.sgusted with the terms proposed for peace. In a private letter I find the following observation attributed to the Emperor Alexaur der.; — 'I can't wage a war with a foreign enemy; I have enough to do with the enemy at home.' This is understood of the corruption, incapacity, and thorough worthl...

jfote irair llatrljts. FATHER TUDKIN'S MALEDICTION. Up to tho Bkics with that wild halloo ! ' — Lord Bvnoif. Chapter I. In., a dark midnight in the spring of the year 1810, the inhabitants of a considerable cluster of neat cottages form ing the village of Innisbofey, in the south west of Ireland, were roused from sleep by an angry noise of clamour and contention outside their dwellings. The shouts and oaths of many voices as if in assault, and the desperate ^lut fast failing cry of some party assailed, could be distinctly heard. The listeners, however, were either too well ac customed to such nocturnal disturbance, or too few in num bers to deem it proper or prudent to interfere. They con tinued to enjoy the comforts of repose ; the contending parties gradually retired, and in a short time the street was again silent. When morning came, it was found that several brothers named Kennedy— who occupied in a little colony the depths of a picturesque valley a few miles from Innisbofey — h...
