VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 22 August 1860
VICTOEIA. By the Black Swan, we havo Molbonrne papers to the 18th inst. It appears that tho formation of a new Ministry has been definitively undertaken by Mossrs. Ebden and O'shanassy in conjunction. The Argus says: The adjournment of Parliament to Wednesday noxt, affords Messrs. Ebden and O'shanassy tho opportunity of completing thoir arrangements for carrying on the Government of the country, a task they have now formally undertaken. These gentlemen being pressed by Mi'. Snod- grass and Mr. Duffy in the Assembly to enter into some particular explanations, declined at that stage: Mr. O'shanassy said the observations of tho bon. member had only excited the ridicule of the House. It would be highly indelicate aud improper for bim, at that stage, to enter into any explanations; but of this he could assure tho House, that nothing that had occurred witliin the last two or three days had compromised the honor as gentlemen, or the position as politicians, of tho lion, member for Brighton...

CATANIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 22 August 1860
C A T A N I A. We have received the following account of the insurrection in Catania, dated June 6. On the morning of the 31st May, to the cry of "Italy and Victor Emmanuel," a small body &nbsp; of armed men attacked the Royal troops in the city, nearly 2,000 strong, consisting of infantry, horse, and artillery. For nearly eight hours they continued the combat, taking two guns from the Royalists ; but, wanting ammunition, and reinforcements of more than 2,000 men approaching to support the Royalists, the insurgents were compelled to slacken their fire, and withdrew with a slight loss in killed and wounded, the loss on the part of the Royalists ex- ceeding 300 killed and wounded. When the attack was over the troops set fire to various build- ings, whether they had been fired from or not. Many houses were pillaged ; the troops shot down every one they met within the street indiscrimi- nately, whether rich or poor or sick, whether man or woman, robbing them afterwards. The libr...

JkJ hunt have received authentic information of the Disallowance i by the Crown of the Bill to Abolish State A d to Keligion, on the ex- press ground of it« failing to protect the vested interest« of the Clergy, we think it an ap- propriate moment for offering to you our thanks for the straightforward and impartial manner in which, in jour plaee in Parliament, yon protected (upon several occasions) the interests of the Colonial Chaplains in the Session of 1859. If the Bill to Abolish State Aid to Religion was carried through the House of Assembly. notwithstanding the opposition of yourself and that of other gentlemen, Members of that House, who were unwilling to see the tcmpoial welfare of the Clergy sacrificed; >ou, and those who thought with you, have had the satis faction of knowing that yon adopted the course of justice, and of witnessing the confirmation of your sent...

The founders ot our sheep farming will recol- lect that many pamphlets and books were pub- lished from 30 to 40 years ago. descriptive of the probabilities of the return to be derived from that purâuit. One of the most favoured plans of those who recommended this line of life was to show the geometrical progression in the numbers of the flock. Thus the owner of 100 sheep was enabled to predict what would be their growing opulence from year to year, if the seasons should smile, if mortality should be averted from their flocks, and if the demands of Europe ((ave them sufficient market Few predictions of this kind have ever been realized with exactness in other pursuits.
