OBSTRUCTION IN THE HOUSE OF LORDS. (TIMES 19TH JUNE.) [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 27 August 1860
OBSTRUCTION IN THE HOUSE OF I LORDS. (TIMES 19TH JONE.) The Lords, who have done the nation good servico lately, cannot give up the use of the stop' cock. The dust of Alexander, ero this, we are told, may have stopped a bunghole ; and the successors of the Norman Barons now delight to impede tho natural flow of legislation. Of course if it were successful, and if the gap closed for ever when the Senate jumped into it, we could not sufficiently prnise their forethought and do« termination. But tho result is an alternate stoppage and explosion. The Lords generally do only the part of a frost, which both stops the pipe and bursts it, to the immense inconvenience of the household. At last a thaw comes, and about G in the morning, when all the people are deep in their second sleep, they dream, liko Clarence, that they are at the bottom of the ocean.and find tho staircase acascado.the drawing-1 room a showcrbath, and the kitchen a foot deep in water. Of course, not a plumber is there to b...
THE INSURRECTION IN NEW ZEALAND. [FROM THE TIMES, 16TH JUNE.] [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 27 August 1860
THE INSURRECTION IN NEW ZEALAND. [FROM THE TIMES, 16TH JUNE.] Nobody can be surprised at the sensation created by the report of the insurrection in New Zealand. It is not merely that a successful and promising settlement is menaced with injury, but a great political question is opened for practical solution exactly at the moment that it had been proposed for theoretical debate. How should the military defence of our colonies be conducted ? That is the inquiry which has recently occupied the attention of statesmen, and now, at the very nick of time, comes a colonial war, demanding, no doubt, all our vigi- lance and activity, but inviting also our acutest observation and most impartial judg- ment. The experience of this occasion, if judiciously employed, may do more to resolve the problem before us than twenty years of conjecture and discussion. The position uf the settlers in New Zealand, as regards advantage and disadvantage in this peculiar respect, is not unevenly balanced. The na...
NOTICE TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 27 August 1860
NOTICE TO CORIIESI'ONVENTS. The letter of h is inadmissible. Our columns are always open to toiiperafc criticisms on the conduct of our public men, and reasonable strictures on the pro ? ccedings and decisions of parliament. Hut whilst w13 systematically refrain, ourselves, from the use of the language of mere invective we cannot allow our correspondents to indulge in - iiidiscrinn'iiafc imputa- tions of corrupt and dishonest motives. We dare say the gentlemen who have fallen under his severe dis- pleasure arc quite as conscientious in their views on the Stale Aid question as H himself. We have received several letters commenting upon our articles on the Report of the Commission on SK l ycrior Education, some of which will appear to-mor- row. Mr. M. Miller's letter and others must also stand over till to-morrow.

TO THE EDITOR OP THE MERCURY. [ Sin,-In your leadbig article of this morning on tho snbjeefc of superior oducation, tho following paragraph occurs : " [This stj'le of reasoning] very cavalierly ig- nores the principle on which the Legislature of this Colony has deliberately acted in dealing with this groat question of education. That principio is, that whilst it is the imperative duty ot tho State to put the means of n sound elementary instruction within the reach of all clases of the community, the interests of advanced education are best pro- moted by Betting a high premium upon it in the shape of rewards. It condemns the action of all civilized governments in the world on this subject as insufficient and wrong, and assumes a principle that has boen adopted in no single country, which we have a right to look to as our exemplar." According to the above, all civilized governments proceed on the principio of providing primary education for tho ignorant, and university ex anrinations ...

MR. MAXWELL MILLER AND THE WESLEYAN METHODISTS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 28 August 1860
MB. MAXWELL MILLER AND THE WESLEYAN METHODISTS. TO THE EDITOB Ol' THE MEECUEY. SIE,-I regret extremely that yonr correspondent in this morning's paper who signs himself " One of the last to expect such a motion from Maxwell Miller" should have misinterpreted my resolution having reference to Mr. Crookes in so extraordinary a manner. Abrief review of the facts will, I am sure, convince him, and any others who share lils opinion, of the error into which he has, no doubt, unwittingly fallen. For the last three years it has been opeidy stated in the House that Mr. Crookes was disqualified from holding his seat in conse- quence of his being a Minister of Religion within the 15th Section of tho Constitutional Act. This assertion was never, as foi1 as my memory carries me, met with by a straightforward denial from Mr. Crookes. The constant reference, however, to hi3 alleged disqualification was very far from tending » to add to the coolness of our debates, or to increase that harmony and q...
