NORTH CUMBERLAND ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 23 June 1856

''' NORTH CUMBERLAND ELECTION. .' , The following we believe to be as nearly as possible the correct state of the poll when it closed for this election,, on Thursday last. At any rate no trivial difference which might be discovered upon a review of the voting papers could in any way affect the result of the election : — Darvall ? 486 Hogan... ? 222 Majority for Darvall ? 264 St. Mary's Seminary.— -The .result of the winter examination of the. pnpils of St. Mary's Seminary was announced in the School-room, on Saturday morning, in the presence of the Arch bishop of Sydney, and several other Catholic ecclesiastics. The list of 'honourable mentions' (no prizes were distributed this half-year) will be found in our advertising columns. The Arch bishop addressed the pupils briefly but impressively, remarking on the great importance of a sound Christian education ; and caution ing the scholars against falling into those temptations of youth which the idle and ill-disposed were always ready ...

MUNICIPAL INSTITUTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 30 June 1856

MUNICIPAL INSTITUTIONS. : : ' It has long been a source of complaint in this, and other co.untry districts throughout the colony, that they: have no control over their local affairs ; that they suffer fronv the. effects of the centralising system that is now, and has. hitherto been, carried out in this colony. Among the most henficial measures proposed to be introduced as stated in the Vice-Regal speech, there is one to remove this ground of complaint — so long and justly made. His Ex-r cellency states that Municipal Institutions should be introduced amongst us, ' for the purpose of relieving the Central Government of duties it cannot adequately fulfil', and vesting the control of local affairs in those directlv interested in their successful management.' . That the Central Government cannot 'adequately fulfil ' the important duty of managing, other peoples' affairs at a distance,, we know too well. Nor can we wonder at such a result, when, we- consider that it has never formed a pa...

STEAM COMMUNICATION. To the Editor of the Illawarra Mercury .) Sir, — A short time back, there appeared in your journal soma remarks from a Sydney Merchant, on the subject of steam com munication between this district and the metropolis. I was very much struck at the time, with the force and truth of the ob servations made use of by the writer in question ; but not at all surprised, that a Sydney Merchant, or any other intelligent man of the present day, would express astonishment at the very sttipid and highly injurious arrangements at present existing between tho rival companies. I thought no more of the matter at tho time, but my attention has been brought back to tho subject by some rumours that have been current in this neighbourhood of late, to the effect that it was the intention of tho proprietors of the Kiama steamer to sell that vessel, in consequence of not meet ing with sufficient support from the inhabitants of this end of tho district and Wollongong.

English Extracts. SUMMARY. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 30 June 1856

Cttgltslj extracts. SUMMARY. . (From tin Liverpool Mercury of 26th March.) According to the authorities who report the secret pro ceedings of the Paris. Congress, the treaty of peace has keen drawn up, and would have been signed on Saturday ?last, March 22nd, if an unexpected obstacle had not pre sented itself. The unforeseen difficulty did not consist of Russian opposition to any demand of the Allies ; it is be lieved to have arisen out of a demand by the represen tatives of Prussia to be admitted to sign the treaty on the same footing and in the same character as the represen tatives. of the Allied Powers. Intelligence from St. Petersburg, published by the Siecle, confirms the state ' ments emanating from Paris as to the leading articles of 4he expected treaty. They are said to be as follows ' 1st. Russia consents to the neutralisation of the Black 'Sea. 2nd. Sebastopol is not again to become a war 'depot i 3rd. Nicholaieff is to be reduced to a commercial port. 4th. Bussia is to ...
