PROTECTION FOR AGRICULTURE. (To the Editor of the lllawarra Mercury.) £ir — At the present important era in the affairs of this colony, ' it is the interest and the duty of every one, from the Governor down to the humblest settler, to do what they enn, in their respective stations^, for the general good ,- and as all cannot bo' Ministers of State or even M. P.s, it ought not to be deemed pre sumption in any, even the humblest inhabitant, to make known any new idea, or call attention to any old principle, which may appear conducive to our colonial prosperity. The history of the world is not wanting in instances of great and beneficial changes being effected by very humble instruments ; and the roll of suc cessive ages has witnessed revolutions in the various affairs of men, wbieh have had their origin in very small, and apparently inadequate causes. And though we claim not to have discovered any new panacea for the ills which afflict, the body politic, nor to have fotmd the mae-ician...

THE CASE OF KING V. MILLS. (To the Editor of the Illawarra Mercury.) [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 9 June 1856
THE CASE: OF KING F. MILLS. (To the Ediior of the Illauiarra Mercury.) Sir — I have a few remarks to make oh the decision of the Court in the plaint King ix. Mills ,- and, as they affect the interests of the public, 1 have no doubt, from your usual courtesy, you will give them a plaee in yonr widely circulated paper. The case alluded to was decided in the Court of Requests, last Monday. Mr. Owen, an attorney, was employed by the de fendant ; and,- on hi& ijpse dixitr the magistrates ruled that the word of a person eonld not be taken as a guarantee for pay ment, because it was laid down in a certain statute that guarantees must be in writing. The learned attorney advanced in support of this, that law mast form tlie basis of adjudication, even in a Court of Conscience and Equity. One of the gentleman's remarks,: which seemed to carry great weight with it, was cer tainly unique, viz. — were it not that a man's word could not be taken as a gaarantee, the community at large would...

BULLI PARISH ROAD. (To the Editor of the Illawarra Mercury.) [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 9 June 1856
. BULLI PARISH ROAD. . (To the Ediior of the lllawarra Mercury.): StBf— I would beg leave to call the attention of the pufiKc and the rate-pavers of the above line of road, through your widely circulated journal,, to the manner in whisn the Trustees aro getting} part of the road repaired. Just beyond Palmer's mill, they have men at work in making a drain = and such a job they are making of it. It is 'a disgrace to any and every person engaged in ifc. Some parts, th© drain is aix feet off the- fence ; in other parts; it twists and turns iu all manner and shapes- until ib ia fully twelve feet from the fence: so that; if there be a drain at each side of the road, twelve feet from the fence, it will leave bail a very narrow passage for public traffic. It would eertainly be well worth yoiar while to walk out and look at what has been done-. I am sure you would scarcely credit such a crooked, zig zag, piece of work would be performed by men in the nineteenth century. Again, they are layin...

(To the Editor of the lllawarra Mercury.) Mr Dear Mr. Ebitor — In glancing over yoar paper of the 19th ultimo, I perceived a letter of lamentation en the part of a lady of WollongORg, respecting the departure of so many gentle men ibr Twofold Bay. The Sydney gents are blamed as being the cause of it. I think, were I a resident in that district, I should feel very much obliged to them for the trouble they had taken m reiuevwig the place oi such an ineum&raneet as indeed they must be, from all I have heayd, and what I really know of them. T&e ladies faney tbey see themselves at i\& next party without partners :. they, then, will \-t better able to keep time to the music, which they could not do before.

HISTORY OF THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 9 June 1856
HISTORY OF THE WEEK. (Abridged from the Liverpool Journal, Miirch 8.) The belligerent generals have met at an intermediate space between the two armies in the Crimea, in order to arrange for the introduction . of the armistice. The plenipotentiaries at Paris have sailed tne propositions for peace, and Louis Napoleon lias opened the Legislative Chambers with a remarkable speech from the throne. This is the principal news of the week. The proceedings of the Conference, or as it was called in Paris, 'the congress,' continue involved in impenetrable obscurity. Either there is nothing particular done, or what is done is kept a profound secret. It was known on Mondav that the preliminaries of neace had been signed ; ? ^ ? ? j^_ _ ? — _ ^ — ? __ _ — . o ? ' but Lord Palmerston, when questioned in the evening in the House of Commons by Mi*.

(From the Times' Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 9 June 1856
(From the Times' Correspondent.) The very large numoer or post-omce orders that have been ap plied for and granted in the Crimea sufficiently prove how much that easy mode of sending money home was needed by this army, and how fallacious were the argatnents of those who- maintained ? that the paymasters of regiments already afforded every facility to men desirous of transmitting small sums to England. Nomin ally they may have done so ; but practically, it is now pretty clear that nothing of the sort was the case. The demand for orders has been so great that the post-ofices at Balaklava and head quarters will probably bo compelled to suspend their issue for want of the necessary printed forms. Only 1000 of these were Bent out to each pos't-uflice, and, in the first two weeks ending February 9th 1030 orders were given, the total aoiount of these- being within a trifle of £3000, showing an average of not quite £3 per order. This result. has exceeded the provisions of the Post-office, a...

? CnM fatetr OUR ARMY IN THE CRIMEA. (From the tpt.oial correspondent of the Mornina Htrald.\ Camp Befoue SEBAsxoi'oii, Feb. 16, 1856. — The London mail arrived yesterday, bringing the newspapers of Feb. 1 and 2, which contain her Majesty's Speech on the opening of Parliament. Out here the Royal Speech is considered weak, and as avoiding many special points we expected to find in it. The general news by this mail strengthens the idea that pence is really at hand. Certain movements seem to confirm this opinion. Yesterday and to-day a large force of artillery has been embarked at Balaklava, more than a thousand strong ; and these, say the1 peaee-mongers, ?would not have been sent home were the war to be continued. To this it is answered, that the artillery are en route,, not only for Woolwich, but the Baltic ; and then, it is added;, that Sir Colin Campbell, who returned to the vJnmea this week, would not have rejoined the army had a cessation of hostilities been contemplated.
