MASSACRE OF CHRISTIANS IN SYRIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 27 August 1860

MASSACRE OF CHRISTIANS IN SYRIA. On the evening of Saturday, tho 2nd June, letters from Sidon, about ten hours' journey by land mid thren hours by sea from Beyrout, reached Mr. Moore, the English consul-general, paying that a number of christians, who had fled to that town for refuge from the southern parts of Mount Lebanon, had boen hilled in cold blood by tho Moslom and Druse population of tho placo. Coming as it did from nn authentic source, and the arrival of a Kussian frigate making Boyroutcomparatix'ely safe from any emente, our consul-general at once despatched BT.M.S.

TO-DAY'S HOLIDAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 27 August 1860

TO-DAY'S HOLIDAY. This day being proclaimed a Public Holiday as the anniversary of the birth of his Royal Highness PRINCE ALBERT, business will be suspended at the Public Offices, and we presume also at the principal mercantile establishments in the city. The several Volunteer Corps have been ordered on parade and will muster at eleven o'clock in front of the Town Hall, where the Masonic and Odd Fellows Rifles will draw up in line, and the Artillery will join them from their parade ground at the Hutchins' School. The whole will then march to the Bat- teries in the Queen's Park which will be manned by the Volunteer Artillerymen, the Rifles keeping the ground. At noon a Royal Salute will be fired and the several corps will afterwards march back to their ground. Presuming the Holiday is graced with what has proverbially come to be known as " Queen's weather," the novel display of citizen soldiery will be as interesting as it is unusual. We have not heard what other arrangements are in ...

DEFENCES OF ENGLAND. [FROM THE TIMES, 15th JUNE.] [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 27 August 1860

DEFENCES OF ENGLAND, [rciOXf THE TIMES, 15ïJf JUNE/] A Report on the Defences could scarcely con- tain auything else than projects and estimates for the improvement of the existing defences, f such as they are, wherever they are, and what . ever their purpose. But it so happens that our existing defences are peculiar in all these res- pects. This appears ina remark of the Com» ! missioners," that the Castle and Citadel of Dover are the only instances of a regularly fortified position in these isles. The truth is that all , our defences are just such as would be chosen by a naval Power that had not till lately antici pated invasion, that knew nothing of the march of armies over its own soil, that had its mind full of attacks by sea, and only imagined a landing for the purpose of taking a maritime fortress in the rear. We have none of those chains of fortresses which mark, for example, the whole frontier of France from the Germnu Ocean to the Mediterranean. With the excep- tion of. We...

THE MERCURY. MONDAY MORNING, AUGUST 27TH, 1860. - - - m - PERHAPS, after all, the Assembly adopted the wisest course in sealing Mr. HOUGHTON'S motion for aid to the Volunteers to the Defence Committee. Had the matter bean debated and settlsd by the House it would bave been debated and settled in all probability upon the value of our Volunteers Corps as they now exist. The broader and more important question:-Of what value pan they bo made as a means of dufeuco ? might have been pyerjooked, in which case the sum asked for by Mr. HOUGHTOK would luve appeared larger than was necessary rather than, a« we are inclined to consider it, a very moderate demand indeed. It appears» notwithstanding that our Volunteers have been j compelled to pay for their own clothing, that there are at present between six hundred and seven hundred enrolled,-a strong proof that the movement is one in harmony with the national feelings of the Colony. In considering the question remitted to them, therefore, the ...
