LOUIS NAPOLEON AND THE GERMAN PRINCES. [TIMES, JUNE l8.] [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 28 August 1860
LOUIS NAPOLEON AND THE GERMAN PRINCES. [TIMES, JONE l8.] In the very popular opera, Luerezia Borgia, perhaps the most popular piece is the drinking song, in which the patrician youths pledge each other in poisoned winccups, nnd laugh it the thought of the morrow. It will be remembered also that a fine effect is produced by a distant requiem which comes from the neighbouring monastery and mingles with the notes of the song of revelry. We do not know whether they had a good opera company at Baden Baden ; hut if they had wo hope that either the King of Bavaria or tho Prince-Regent of Prussia did not omit to command a representa- tion of the Borgia. There is a certain degree of relation between the plot of that opera and what has been going on at Baden. Those Baden Baden revelries ure not unlikely to be followed by the decease of several bodies politic. At Baden a number of people of very great fami'ies were yesterday making themselves very jovial under great difficulties. The banquets,...
THE VOLUNTEERS. (TIMES, 23RD JUNE.). [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 28 August 1860
THE VOLUNTEERS. _ (TIMES, 23RD JUNE.). If the "Volunteer Review" of this day only equals in its import the similar demonstration half a century ago, it will ho not onlj'one of the proudest scenes, but also ono of the most weighty events in British history. A victory may found a long peaco ; a ch'il rising may overthrow a djmasty or modify a constitution ; and, as wo hear, the Re- view of tho Volunteers at the beginning of tho cen- tury satisfied the most formidable foo who ever challenged this country that its people would not bo vanquished till thoy had been destroyed. There is an old illusion on this point which tho English havo fostered themselves, and which has often fed tho hopes of their more military neighbors. It is our affectation not to be a nation of soldiers. We aro tho sleeping lion, tho athletic but unarmed civi- lian, who is too confident of his superiority to take the ordinary moans of defence. Liko tho people of Ijaisli, wo " dwell careless, after tiro manner of the...

TheJTeralil soys: It will be seen from our report of tho Legislative Assembly that tho efforts of Mr. Heales to form a Ministry have been unsuccessfuLand that the crisis is Btill in the position it was a week ago.

THE MERCUBY. TUESDAY MORNING, AUGUST 2STIT, I860. HAD not the question of State Aid to religion possessed the most extraordinary power of endurance it certainly never could have survived the savage attacks of its enemies. Never was any unfortunate question so cruelly persecuted «-Bo systematically tortured, Year after year, with a cruelty as relentless and intense as it appears lo be enduring, have the barbed arrows of voluntaryism been sent quivering into its unhappy body, and yet it lives and breathes with a vitality as provokiug to its foes as it is astonishing to its friends. No sooner had the present Session opened than the attack was renewed with redoubled virulence The first blow was warded off hy the Legislative Council, the members of which declined to be any parties to another onslaught until Stale Aid had leen afforded an opportunity of appealing from the Parliament to the Country. Then Mr. CHAPMAN entered the lists ; and, finding how hopeless it was to cany his point by ...

PUBLIC HOLIDAY. Yesterday being the anniversary of the birthday of the PRINCE CONSORT was observed as a public holiday in Hobart Town, the public offices, banks, &nbsp; and the principal shops and places of business being closed, and business of almost every kind being suspended. The vessels in harbor were also decorated with flags in honor of the occasion. In the absence of any number of troops in gar- rison our Volunteer Rifle Corps did good service in the place of the military usually so prominent on such occasions. At eleven o'clock the several Corps mustered at their respective places of drill or parade,-the Artillery Corps, commanded by Captain Tarleton, in the playground of the Hut- chins' school, the Masonic, commanded by Captain Solly, and the Odd Fellows' Rifles, commanded by Captain Davies at theTown Hall in Macquarie-street. Precisely at this hour the Artillery Corps marched down Macquarie-street, preceded by their Band, playing a quick march, and on arrival at t...

Dele "two" before "years.* Dele "useful" before "instrumental"-the latter being "efficient," or the like. Before "an attempt" supply "such." "Dop¡"should have boen "Doh"-the stroke above denoting the octave. "Octavos" should be "Octavo"-referring only to the second Doh. Lithe example of notation another "Doh" should be supplied in the first bar.
