JERRINGONG. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 14 January 1856

JERRINGONG. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.]     The Harvest. — The weather still continues very unsettled, and although a considerable portion of the wheat is stacked in this neighbourhood, there is a vast amount still remaining in the field, and it is feared has suffered considerable damage. _Wesleyan Sunday School.— On Wednesday last, the children of this township had a public examination at the Wesleyan Chanel and after repeating various pieces, which they did in a most creditable manner before the Rev. J. Wilkinson, and a crowded audience, they were regaled with a profusion of tea, plum cake. &c, to which they all did ample justice, and after receiving a suitable address from the Rev. gentleman, all dispersed in a happy mood to their respective homes.   _ We have had no arrivals at our harbour for some time, the only visible sign of our harbour being a shipping port, is the remains of a vessel once destined for this port, but now laid up in ordina...

THE POWER TO AMEND THE CONSTITUTION. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 21 January 1856

THE POWER TO AMEND THE CONSTITUTION. (From the Maitland Mercury.) There appears to us to be a want or precise, definite meaning in the declarations made by most of the candidates who have yet come forward, as to the course they are prepared to adopt in reference to the two-thirds clauses. The Act of Parliament offers a very simple way of obtaining the power to amend the constitu tion in any and every particular, namely by the Colonial Parlia ment passing a short act repealing the two-thirds provisions, thus leaving all the constitutional questions alike open to be dealt with by simple majorities ; and then this act being specially reserved for the royal assent, it would be sent home, receive the formal or the tacit approval of the Imperial Parliament, and be assented to lw Iiap Mniestv T7rnm f.lifi mnnipnt slinb NSKfMit, wns O'i von nnil tlin new act brought into force into the colony. The Colonial Parlia ment would have power to deal with constitutional questions in the same manner...

The Colonial Press. STATE ENDOWMENTS OF RELIGION. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 21 January 1856

''' Calmtkl pnm. STATE ENDOWMENTS OF RELIGION. {From the Melbourne Herald.) If we were disposed to triumph, or to chuckle over the accuracy . ?of.ourpredictions, . we might point with exultation to the great public meeting which is to be held to-night in Astley's Amphi . ' theatre. It is the first instalment of the public protest against the New Constitution, a significant reply to the proposal for a holiday, ; and a prelude to that storm of indignation wheh is sure to break . out as soon as the curtain rises on this new legislative farce. This very question of state endowments, is one that we hare already fixed upon and stigmatized, .as both unjust and inex pedient — impolitic and dangerous to be introduced, even as a topic of discussion, in framing the fundamental laws for a new country. As politicians we denounce it. when we recollect all the evils to which tlie union of church and state has given rise in the old world ; all the floods and torrents of persecution, and all the hea...

GRANDFATHER GLEN. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 21 January 1856

GRANDFATHER GLEN. The driving snow and hail beat mercilessly against the window; the piercing north wind seemed to search the very bones. Shivering pedestrians were seen hurrying through the streets, tightly grasping their umbrellas, rendered almost useless by the fury of the storm. Robust ? men turned their collars about their ears, and s nappe d-'- their frost-bitten fingers, and stamped their feet to' promote circulation ; dainty dames, muffled to the chin in' costly furs, were to be seen through the closed windows of carriages. It was a day to bless' God for warmth and food, and think shudderingly of the houseless poor. It was Thanks giving day — known throughout New England as a day of unlimited feasting and rejoicing, warm heartgreetings, and glad memories. At the windows of elegant mansions, , where rarest flowers blossomedj and birds warbled, as if in - - midsummer, where heavy silken curtains and warm fires' bade defiance to the chill blast, were seen happy faces and gracef...

Tales and Sketches. AN ESSAY ON HUMBUG. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 21 January 1856

' CnJra iiait |-Iv(frlj0. AN ESSAY ON HUMBUG-, j By a Manchester Man. {From Frassr's Magazine for July.) Humbug ! The word rings oddly we admit ; separate -the syllables, and it is pleasant neither in sound nor ?savour .: and yet we have a weakness for the phrase. ? Phrase, call you it .?' asks the red-faced corporal. 'By :this good day I will maintain the word with my sword, to be a soldier-like word, and a word of exceeding good com mand.' Is it not the monarch of the vocabulary for ex pressive meaning c is it not cue syraooi oi an enormous reality, a great fa^t in life ? Unde derivatur ? Whence is it derived ? Can its genealogical descent be traced from that refuge for philological . destitutes, the Anglo Saxon.; or is it the coinage of some modern mint ? The word, we maintain, is of good lineage. We have an opaque recollection that its parent is to be found in one of the choruses of Aristophanes; but we have not time to search it out. Only listen to Notes and Queries. We are, th...

Iijtonj CnmsjioEtett i Saturday Evening, 4£ o'Clock. Dixon s Mills, better known as l'.urlong and. Kennedy's Mills, were totally destroy vd by fire eaTtfy .on Friday morning last. The fact of their being in flumes was discovered about two o'clock; an alarm was immediately spread throughout the city. The dryness of the floors of the building, whose outward walls were of stone, added to the immense quantity of flour and grain collected on the different stories, was the means of the frightful element spreading itself with incredible rapiditv. The flames, which burst forth as from a powder mill, illuminated the whole town, and, fed bv the flour and wood collected in the building, curled up in such volumes as caused the utmost alarm for the safety of the surround ing property. The Fire Insurance Company's ongine, with that of°Mr. Torning, and of H. M. S. Fantome, was, with the least possible delay, in attendance; but with the short supply of water, they were found in-suflicient to meet t...
