A FRENCH VIEW OF PALMERSTON. [JOURNAL DES DEBATS.] [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 10 September 1860

A FRENCH VIEW OF PALMERSTON. [".JOURNAL DES DEBATS.1 Decidedly there is nothing to be hoped for from Lord Palmerston ; that eternal young Premier will die in final impenitence. Has ho not found the means in a siugle sitting of the House of Commons of committing three serious pieces of folly? He proposed that the House should adjourn to attend the Derby, he defended the system of living models, and, finally, took up the cudgels for the fight of the championship. The adjournment oi the House on the Derby-day is such a recognised fact, that Lord Palmerston might well call it one of the unwritten rules of Parliament. Usually some individual member moves the question; this year Lord Palmerston himself, doubtless with a new lease of youth, took it upon himself. Decidedly children are out of date. Behold, on the other hand. Lord Haddo, a serious Scot, complaining that women aro made to sit stark naked before the pupils of the Royal Academy, and a discussion ensues on petti- coats und crino...

COMMERCIAL. CITY ARTICLE. Slercury Oßce, Saturday Afternoon.

FRANKLm MONUMENT. TO THE EDITOB Or THE MERCURY.

Parliament having voted a sum of money I may fairly presume all parties are agreed that a monument of some kind is necessary, and that they are prepared at once to take action. The combination of the useful with the monumental (in any designs that it may be intended to carry out) would be a result greatly to be desired, and believ- ing as I do that the best testimonial philanthropy could erect to the memory of departed greatness would be the association of the name of tho indivi- dual with some Institution by the establishment of which posterity would bo permanently benefitted.
