THE MERCURY. WEDNESDAY MORNING, JULY 4, 1860. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 4 July 1860
THE MERCURY. WEDNESDAY MORNING, JULY 4, 1860. NO ONE will be disposed to differ from us in opinion, when we say that our present postal communica- tion with Europe is a costly luxury, The history of the Australian Mail Subsides—their modest be- ginnings, their rapid giowth, and the colossal dimensions they have assumed—is one of the most curious episodes on record. Surely never was the demand for cash more oxorbitant on the one hand, &nbsp; nor the readiness to pay it mora prompt and eager on the other. Within the brief space of seven years the price paid annually for a monthly mail to England, has risen from the modest sum of £17,000 to £180,000, and at this moment an ad- ditional £20,000 is demanded. Not tived, however, &nbsp; of paying an amount s0 enormous, merely to ensure frequency and regularity of postal intercourse, we find the Sydney Government clamoring for the opening of new routes, and prepared to undertake the financial responsibility of maintaining the...

POPULAR DELUSIONS.—KIANDRA. [BELL'S LIFE IN VICTORIA.] [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 4 July 1860
POPULAR DELUSIONS. — KIANDRA. [BELL'S LIFE IN VICTORIA.] &nbsp; Folly, like influenza, the measles, ringworm, or disorders generally, which affect the head, is catching. This is a blank truism to which even your amiable proper-minded lunatic will yield a ready assent. The fool, be it observed, is wholly controlled by external circumstances, and the fashion of his momentary delusion is shaped accordingly. To-day he believes in the efficacy of Victorian insol- vency laws, to-morrow he is cracked upon the Sunday question; and again, the day after, he rehearses &nbsp; the creed of the Corner on the subject of universal appropriation. The madness of the moment borrows a tone, so to speak, from the pressing exigency of the moment. On one occasion we find that the want of the time has engendered a mild form of mania; at another we discover that it has fired an entire magazine of absurdities - these differences of degree and intensity being regulated, perhaps, by the season ...
SORELL. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 4 July 1860
S O R E L L Thursday last, the 28th June, being the anniver- sary of the Coronation of Her Most Gracious Majesty was celebrated by the people of Sorell with great demonstrations of loyalty. A Subscription &nbsp; Ball took place in the evening at Mr. Smith's Assembly Rooms, which was well attended; dancing &nbsp; was kept up with great spirit till near daylight, and the company separated highly pleased with the entertainment. The rooms were well lighted, the ladies' dresses very becoming, and altogether the scene presented was most gratifying. Indeed a beholder would have been struck with the idea that the female beauty of Sorell could be surpassed by that of no other country district. The principal event of the day, however, was the Royal salute fired with the guns at Horsecroft, by Messrs. W. H. & C. A. Glover, assisted by Messrs. G. Marshall, jnr., Thomas and Joseph Allanby and R. Halstead. Messrs. G. Gatehouse and C. Crocker were present, and also Mr. Ha...
