SOCIAL MOVEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 16 June 1856

SOCIAL MOVEMENTS. ' . : '.(From the correspondent of; the Argus.) The suicide of Mr. John Sadlier has been a' great theme of conversation in all circles. My anticipations of what would transpire have been verified. Since Law's day, there has been no such swindler. The smash of his bank in Tipperary, branches of which were growing into all the little market towns' in Ireland, has beggared thousands of small depositors, who1 have lost their little all ; has robbed Poor Law Guardians, who will have to retax these small depositors ; has injured many a wealthy nobleman and landholder: and has ruined his own family and his own friends. His brother was the man ager' of this bank, iind this brother , allowed him to overdraw an account to the extent of .£200,000 ; against such a fact, the plea that lie was ignorant of John Sadlier's villanies in London weighs but very little, for all the revelations now made show' that/the bank lias, from the first, been insolvent, - though: paying a six-per...

The following letter appears in the Times of this morning J- Sir— When contributions of the talent and public interest of those of your Crimean Correspondent contain comments upon subjects not strictly military or descriptive, it is natural to infer that by giving them that prominence and publicity you adopt the opinions, unless in the same paper you have some expressions of dissent. . , But, being well aware what a multiplicity, of business must con stantly distract the attention of the Editon.of the Times, allow me to hope that you did not intend deliberately to sanction the very contemptuous tone adopted towards 'Dissenters' in the letter from the camp which appears in this morning's journal. Your correspondent quarrels with Lord Panmure for allowing a Methodist Minister to go out to the Crimea. I know nothing whatever of the circumstances ; but if, as is admitted, he is an excellent...
