European News. FIVE DAYS' LATER INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 23 June 1856
? (feijftatt $to, . . . ?, ,. FIVE DAYS' LATER INTELLIGNECE. (From the Empire, June 16.) The Omar Pasha arrived this morning, havirig made the passage from the Downs in 89 days. We are indebted *o Captain Thompson and Mr. Scott Durbin for papers to the day of sailing. The report of the birth of a French prince on the 8 th was premature. The important event, however, took place on the 16th. Great rejoicings were taking place in , Paris in consequence. The satisfatory termination of the Paris Conferences .appeared to be looked upon with certainty, and the establishment of peace was looked upon as an admitted fact. : It was generally believed that Parliament would be -dissolved early in May. News had just arrived from St. Petersburg that General Williams had so far recovered as to be able to leave Tiflis for Moscow. ' At the date of the last advices from the Crimea, a line of neutral ground had been traced between the Allies and the Russian armies, in execution of the armistice. This l...

(From the Correspondent of the Times.) Paris, Thursday, March 13, 6 p.m. , If we are to believe what was said last night and to-day .. of the proceedings of the last meeting of the Congress, we may very soon expect to hear of a favourable solution. ' I reported, on Sunday, that, during the present week, matters would, in all probability, advance rapidly to a termination ; and what has since occurred has, if I am ? ri°'ntiy lnioruiea, reauzeu. tutu aiiuwpaviuu. xnc Emperor is each momeut desirons of concluding the conferences before the Empress's accouchement, and this «vent, may, from this day forward, be expected from one day- to another. I have already spoken of the intention attributed to the Plenipotiaries of coming to an under standing on those more important points which involve a edsus belli, and leaving those which they consider to be of ? secondary interest to be regulated hereafter. With the new impulse given to the negociations, I should not ' wonder if a treaty embodying...

THE DAPTO ROAD. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 23 June 1856
?.????;. THE DAP-TO ROAD. As 'the public may naturally wish to have some inkling as to what is to be done with the Government Grant and their voluntary contributions, at the risk of being tedious 1 have drawn up the following statement. The repairs of the high road from 'Wollongong to Dapto made, being made, and intended to be made with the present means, may be classed into— such as are permanent improvements, likely to be of use when a more perfect system of raising funds and ex pending them is established, and such temporary patching of very bad spots as may enable the traihe to be carried on till a oetter system can be obtained. The permanent improvements are — 1st. — A large drain cut across the road at the Charcoal Bridge -end of Mr. Jenkins' flat, and ending in Charcoal Creek, conveying away by the most direct route the greater portion of the water hitherto allowed to damage the road. This has been defrayed out of the balance .of last year's Grant. 2nd. — The whole of the roa...
HOME NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 23 June 1856
HOME NEWS. Thb Rumoured Dissolution. — A rumour has been warming the new walls of the Carlton for some days past, and is reproduced with appropriate typographical honours by our Tory contemporaries of both sexes, to the effect that an immediate dissolution of Parliament has been decided on, and will take place upon the virtual terminatipn of the Paris Conferences. The rumour is quite without foundation. The only reason tnac me opposition can assign . for such a step is ' Palraerston's immense popularity just now ;'! but undoabtedly and ' immense' ;as that popularity is, it would not be sufficient justification for the Premier to plunge the country into the fever. of? a dissolution. Wayward, sectional, and unreasonable as the present House of Commons sometimes shows itself, it has yet on all occasions of importance answered the appeals.of the Government ; and although, considering the auspigag--1 under which the house was elected in 1852, Lord Palmer ston might very reasonably make a...
AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 23 June 1856
? AMERICA. The Canda, which sailed from Boston on the 27th ultimo and from Halifax on the 28 th ultimo, arrived at Liverpool on the 14th March. The steamer Alabama has returned to New York, having been unsuccessful in her search for the Pacific. She had encountered great ice fields, and it was thought by some that the missing steamer, in attempting to force her way through one of these fields, had broken down, and still remained fast in the ice. In such a case the Government ship Arctic, which was still in search of her, and which was built for an, ice boat, would probably be able to find her. The New York Herald and Tribune contain articles on the subject of the Central Ameriean question. The high tone assumed by the London papers is ridiculed by these journals. The Herald is of opinion that the only contest in which the British can be gainers when opposed to the United States is that of diplomacy. While, ex pressing these sentiments, however, the New York press are of opinion that...

REPRESENTATION FOB WEST CAMDEN. Mr. Henry Oxley proposed Mr. James Macarthnr as a fit and proper person to represent the electors of West Camden in the Legislative Assembly. 7. Mr. Henry Thompson, of Camden, seconded the nomination. Mr. W. S. Mitchell moved the adjournment of the meeting to the Court-house, on account of the cold and boisterous state of the weather. On re-opening of the meeting in the Court-house, Mr. H. Oxley addressed the electors, and was fallowed by Mr. Macarthur, who entered at length into the circumstances, preceding the formation of the first responsible ministry, and his own connection therewith, which explanations appeared to be satisfactory to the electors present. ?

I beg also to congratulate Mr. Macarthur on his heing again returned to represent you in the Legisla...
THE MINISTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 23 June 1856
THE MINISTRY. Since our last publication most of the Ministers, including ''the Premier, Mr. Donaldson) who were obliged to resign their seats in Parliament by acceptance of their high offices/ have been re-elected by their respective con stituencies as members of the Legislative Assembly. Thus, then, we have the expression of public opinion in favour of the present Ministry, so far as relates to the constituencies represented by its members; but, as such ;? re-elections are in some measure contrary to our anticipa tions, finrl r.prfninlv adverse tn nur rinKf-ionl topics, i-fc- rp_ maiius only for us to hope that the Donaldson Ministry, ''having.; been confirmed in their high positions- by such ,? constituencies, may not disappoint in. their public acts-, the fair expectations of the country ;, but that the measures ,they may introduce and support in the. great Council of the _. colon j£ may be. such as to raise it in the. scale of nations, anu to increase and advance the .happiness...
