STATE AID—WHAT IS IT? TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 3 September 1860

STATE AID-WHAT IS IT ? TO THE EDtTOn OP 'WIE MEUOUBY, Sin,-At a timo when State Aid is again attract- ing public attention, it may bo well to enquire what it ia, and fiom whonco it springs ? On look- ing back, wo shall find that this Colony was at first wholly a Ponai settlement, and afterwards a placo lo which convicts from England wore do ported. As a matter of course it became the duty of tho Government to próvido tho prisoners with reli- gious instruction-hence the appointinontof Chap- lains with pay and allowances, as being on the Mi- litary Staff. As the Colony became settled, and convicts dis- persed through tho land, tho samo caro provided additional chaplains, and though tho circumstances of the Colony altered gradually, to this day tim Government has a volo in tho .appointment of " State Paid" Ministers. It was for tho religions instruction afforded by the Wosleyan body to pri- soners of the Crown, that Colonel Arthur first placed on the Estimates a grout of money to thati...

THE CHAMPION RACE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 3 September 1860

THE CHAMPION RACE WEEK. THE spirit with which the proposal to hold the third Champion Race in Tasmauia has been responded to, leaves no doubt whatever of the brilliant success of that meeting. . At the same time it behoves the colonists to neglect no pre» caution that liuy tend to ensure the eclat of the occasion. We possess more advantages in this island for a gathering of this kind, than are to be found in either of the other Colonies. O.ir climate, the beauty of our scenery, and the variety of luxuries we have it in our power to offer visitors in the shape of fruits, are amongst the many circumstances that render a Summer excursion to Tasmania one of the most delightful recreations to the Australian which are to be found in this part of the world. At the time fixed for the Champion Race, we shall be in the very zenith of our fruit and flower season, and after the parched wastes and desiccated herbage of the hotter Colonies, our green fields, gor- geously costumed gardens, and ric...

California, of 25th June, states that tho city of San Francisco numbers at present probably ninety thousand inhabit- ants, and of these a voting population of some fourteen thousand. There are thirteen thousand children in the city, three thousand of whom are free pupils in the public schools.

LOUISNAPOLEON. (FROM THE TIMES, 14 JUNE.) [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 3 September 1860

LOUISNAPOLEON. (FI*OM% THE TIMES, 14 JUNE.) There are times in the lives of all men when they have a claim to our pity, and just now the man 'with most claim to it is the Emperor of the French. He is encountering almost irre- sistible temptation. But the other day it «as arranged that he should go to Baden Baden to meet the Prince Regent of Prussia, in order, it was said, to renew the mutual confidence shaken by sôme'expressions in a private letter which a busybody had got hold of and taken to Paris. The Emperor must see the Prince of Prussia, and, receive from the own lips the assurance that' no Minister could be authorized to convey. So the Prince of Prussia arrived at Baden on Thursday evening, and the Emperor was expected to arrive last night. The story, as told, affected nobody else, and there was no reason why the two should not despatch the business in halfau-hour, and he gone their several ways. But Germany does not give Emperors so scant a measure of civility. When a great ...

THE MERCÜEY. MONDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 3RD, 18G0. -.4. Tim more statistics we gather in illustration of the worth of salmon fisheries, the more conc!u> sive becomes the argument in favor of our at once making liberal provision for the colonisation of this noble fish in the Tasmanian waters. We have before us a stateraont of the number of barrels and boxes, and the weight of salmon contained in each package, brought into London from several Scottish ports in tho year 1835, with the price per pound at which the fish sold free of freight, port dues, and salesman's com- mission, and the net gross price obtained in ' London. We have on former occasions stated the annual value in round numbers of pounds, of the Irish and Scottish fisheries to thoir pro- prietors. The statistics we now give belong to a different class.and are entitled to all the prac- tical weight attaching to particular and minute facts. We gather the following details from the Report of a Parliamentary Committee appoi...

SUPERIOR EDUCATION. TO THE EDITOR OP THE MERCURY. SIR,--Although your paper has been almost inun dated with couumraioations bearing upon tUissubject I must claim a small portion of your very valuable space. So much has been said about the Commis- sioners and their Report that I shall endeavor to confine myself to a very few remarks upon a great omission in that important document, viz.,the men- tion of Horton College. By what strange fatality, Sir, did it happen, that while ministers of religion were examined as witnesses, not one principal of a private academy wn3 summoned to tell what he knew about a matter which had occupied his atten tiou and taxed his talents for the greater part of a life-limo. Now, Sir, this seems very strange to me, for in my humble opinion, when Commissioners aro* appointed to make au inquiry, and to' collect evi- dence upon any given subject, it is obviously their duty to put their questions to those most competent lo answer thom. I do not deny that minist...

THE VOLUNTEERS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 3 September 1860

THE VOLUNTEERS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. SIR.- Your impression of to-day contains a letter | from "Never Fails," which would be likely to leave those who look to the columns of The Mercury for their information with most absurd and erroneous ideas. Throughout the suggestions of "Never Fails," one great failing at least is most apparent, though evidently overlooked by bim when choosing his motto. His failing is in taking a narrow view of a question, and that view concocted from discon- nected scraps by the pencils of others, copied, and forged into one, so as to counterfeit an original. Let us consider his questions. Are the rifles served out the best that can be procured? Have   they sufficient long range? Where are the Whit-   worth rifles, and the breech-loading rifles, and the long range Whitworth cannon? Now the Enfield   rifles are deemed so good that the British army are furnisbed with them, and it has not been con- sidered desirable...

IT MUST NEVER BE. (FROM THE SATURDAY REVIEW.) [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 4 September 1860

IT MUST NEVER BE. (FROM THE SATURDAY ItEVIEW.) Some injustice has been done to the Commis- sioners appointed to inquire into the defences of the country by the criticisms which have been naturally made upon a report which, after providing for the safety of the dockyards, offers no suggestion for the defence of the metropolis -the most vital point of all, and the one against which an invading array would be cer- tain, if practicable, to direct its first attack. It seems to have been assumed in the Times andelse* where, that the Commission rather underrate the importance of fortifying London ; but it is apparent on the face of their report that they are at least as anxious as any of their critics can be that their own scheme of defences should be completed by adequate works for (he protection of the capital. The memorandum of instructions which accompanied the Commission limited the inquiry to the defence of the dockyards, and the Commissioners expressly state that the défonce of the ...
