REJOICINGS IN THE METROPOLIS. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 7 July 1856
REJOICINGS IN TIE METROPOLIS. Shortly after ten o'clock n Sunday night a royal I salute of 100 guns' from the ' jark and tower of London, ; I I ? announced to the inhabitants of this metropolis that peace had been finally concluded. Instructions were not issued from the Horse Guards until after seven o'clock, and in order that Divine service might not be interrupted in the metropolitan churches, the hour appointed for the ceremony was ten o'clock. The fact gained publicity, and a very large concourse of persons collected' in St. James's Park, within the space leading from tlie entrance by the Horse Guards to the Duke of York's column. The military bands at St. George's and Wellington barracks at the same time played the National Anthem, and when the Park guns had ceased the report of the guns at the Tower were distinctly heard booming in the distance. The bells of the different metropolitan churches rang merry peals until after midnight, in commemoration of the event. On Monday morn...
POOR SHOALHAVEN. (To the Editor of the Illawarra Mercury.) [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 7 July 1856
POOR SHOALHAVEN-. (To the Editor of the- Illawarra Mercury.) My Dear Mk.Editor — I think it is a great pity that something has not been done before now towards cleaning this beautiful river, where there are such aiv abundance of produce grown, and is still inreasirng year after year. If that little impediment, the flats were only removed, vessels then, either steam or sail, could go a jong. way up the ri,verr and there would then be no monopoly, and then, farmers in this district would have an opportunity of selling; their produce ;. but as- it Is now, in some cases, a farmer has not only to give his potatoes- away, but some have actually to pay for getting, rid of themr asr in some eases, they do not really pay freight; then what does a farmer get for tilling his land — nothing. He has to find seed,, pay high rent, high labour, wear and tear; Sic.,, and, after all. his time, toil, and expense, &c., he sends his- produce some this year to- market, and gets nothing. Why so?. ...

PEACE. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 7 July 1856
PEACE. It must be a matter of deep and sincere congratulation 'with all that a termination has been put to the feud of nations. Peace has been proclaimed, and those that so lately met 'in hostile close embrace,' are now 'smok- ing the calumet of peace.' The sword has been sheathed,, and instead of the roar of death-dealing artillery, resounding over the earth's fair surface,, will be heard the busy, hum; of commerce, the cheerful song of contented labour, com mingling with that of praise to those who have fought so well the battle of freedom against the dark despotism of the Russ, and the solemn requiem for the departed brave who have fallen whilst fighting in the same good cause. Peace, although it cannot restore the ' lost ones ' to the desolate homes of the fatherless and- the widow, will- give hack to the outstretched, expectant arms- of. mother, wife, and sister, the gallant and dauntless son, husband^. and brother who have so unflinchingly: braved, alike- the- open dangers of ...
ON THE PRESENT STATE. AND FUTURE PROSPECTS OF OUR SOCIAL CONDITION. (To the Editor of the Illawarra Mercury). [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 7 July 1856
ON- THE PRESENT STATE. AND- FUTURE PROSPECTS; OF OUR* SOCIAL, CONDITION. (To the- Editor ? of the Illawarra Mercury..), Mr. Editor— It must be apparent to the thoughtful observer that frequent shiftings from., place to place are injurious to ihe cultivation and safe- keeping of the moral and- social virtues. No doubt, it is good to see the world', that our. idea3-ma-y.be enlarged-, and corrected — that we may- increase- our know-ledge of the habits and dispositions of mankind — and that we may learn, what is worth learning;, and see what is worth seeing, .in different countries as well as in- the narrower range of. our own country, or of our own- little parish. By this general acquaintance with the world, we get rid of many a little narrowness, and many an obstinate local prejudice, our sphere- of vision is enlarged, our mind liberalized,, and our habit of reasoning., and judging- set upon a* wider and. truer basis All this is desirable, if the danger of acquiring a roving and. rest...
