NEW ZEALAND. AUCKLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 1 January 1858

NEW ZEALAND. AUCKLAND. We are in possession of Auckland papers to the 4th ult. The Southern Cross of that date, speaking of the Auckland Cattle Show, says :-"Notwithstanding the gloomy forebodings of failure that had been uttered, on the ground that the proper time had not been chosen for an exhibi- tion of this kind, the cattle show held yesterday was a great success. The entries were very numerous.and the class of cattle exhibited far beyond the aver- age. It appeared to us that the horses and sheep carried the day ¡ of the former there were 65 entered ¡ of the latter, 120. Of horned cattle there were entered 70, | whilst of pigs there were only 8 entries. The agricultural implements and ma- chinery exhibited, attracted, as they de- served, general attention. These inclu- ded winnowing, threshing, and reaping machines." The same journal has the following : '.' We are sorry to leam that an affray bas taken placo at Otahuhu between some of the pensioners and a party of Waikato nativ...

VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 1 January 1858

VICTORIA. By the Black Swan we have Melbourne journala to the 29th alt. There is no political news of import- ance. Mr. Michie bas introduced a Bill upon the subject of National Edu- cation, which acema likely to arouse very strong party feelings. The Argus bespeaks a calm consderation for the measure; and trusts that some pro- vision may be made in the Bill which shall facilitate the adoption of one broad and general system of education, without trenching in any way, upon the very strong prejudices which exist in connection with this important subject. There have been several terrific fires in Victoria. On Sunday morning a fire broke out in the stores of Messrs. Grice and Sumner in Flinders Lane, Melbourne, when property to the amount of from £3000 to £3000 was destroyed. About 3 o'clock on Thursday after- noon a most alarming fire broke out at Sandhurst, which was prevented from spreading by a miracle almost. Con- siderable loss was also sustained by this conflagration-although no...

HORTÍCÜLTURAL SHOW. The Summer'Exhibition of the Horti- cultural Society took place on Wednes- day, in the Bow Market, three arches of which hidjboen enclosed, as usual for the occoáon. The show of flowers, fruits, and vegetables, may be considered to have bee» a successful one, at any, rate the primees thought so. The gar- dens of lix. Maonaughtan and Mr. Hollinsdale,dcc., contributed some very beautiful fliwers, and some delicious fruits. Mr. Newman, the Curator of tho Royal Society's Gardens, exhibited several new ¡plants, in addition to a large variety off iusehias, goraniums, and dahlia«. The band of ELM. 12th Begiment wa» in attendance, and in the coarse of the afternoon played several piece» of anisic to tho entertainment of the visitors. The whole effect of the exhibition might have been good had the accommodation been sufficiently spacious, but, three-fourths of the beauty was lost, by all the specimens, floral and otherwise, being so closely packed to- gether, and frun the...

GALES IN THE CHANNEL. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 1 January 1858

GALES IN THE CHANNEL. Terrifie hurricanes have within the last few day« swept the English and Irish coasts. Reports of considerable damage done to shipping have arrived from various seaports. It is stated that the works of the Plymouth and Great Western Dock Company must have been injured to the extent of many thousands of pounds. The gates of the dock had been reft from their position and sunk in the basin. Several breaks have been made in the eastern embankment. The greater part ot the -western embankment has been displaced. The sea broke so fiercely against the back of tho pier that the spray and portions of the waves were carried over some storehouses some forty or fifty feet high. Several of the yachts, smacks, and boats moored on the outs'de of the docks were drifted from their moorings and sunk. At daybreak on the 8th of October, while there was á violent gale off Brighton, a coal brig was descried dead set. on the shore. The veset was obviously unmanageable. She ran aground ...

THE OPERA COMPANY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 1 January 1858

THE OPERA COMPANY. 1 We are glad to find that the Lessee of the Theatre Royal, Mr Charles Poole, intends opening on Monday evening next, the 4th instant. The piece se- lected for the occasion is Verdi's Grand Opera of Ernani. When Madame Anna Bishop was here, the community evidencedan unmistakeablofondness for the Opera, and, we believe, that a taste for these delightful performances exists amongst us to a much greater extent than is generally supposed. Mr. Poole brings with bim aCompany which we believe carries its own welcome along with it. Amongst its members will be found the names of Madame Carandini, Mons. Laglaiso, M. Emile Coulon, Signor Grossi, and Mr. Kohler, the whole Company being under the direction of Mr. Lavenu. It is lo be hoped that Mr. Poole will not be allow- ed to regret the expense and anxiety which the introduction of so talented a Company as this must have entailed. To embark in such a speculation in times like these, demands a courage- ous heart and a sanguin...

THE ALDERMANIC ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 1 January 1858

THE ALDERMANIC ELECTION. The first Aldefrrianîo Election under tho now Corporation Act took placo yester- day. This, also, was the first Municipal Election by ballot-or, rather, by such a parody upon the ballot as,we trust,it will never be our lot to witness ogam. We are quite prepared to make every allow- ance, on the present occasion, knowing how brief was the time allotted for making the various arrangements. But -we nrast have no repetition of yester- day's proceedings. If such inroads as were then made are to be winked at, it will be better, in order to Save the ballot from dtsgrace.to fall back upon open vot- ing. No one who went to record his vote yesterday would have supposed that an election by "ballot was then going on. Some of tho Candidates were as busy as beos waylaying the Electors to secure their votes. Balloting papers were openly brought out of the private room by citi- zens, to receive inst ructions from one or other of the Scrutineers as to the names which should ...

THE CIRCUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 1 January 1858

THE CIRCUS. Since our last publication, the talented Company of Messrs. Klaer & Cousins, have been gaining golden opinions from all ranks of men. On Wednesday, an afternoon performance was given to a crowded assembly - amongst whom were large numbers of the juvenile community. Indeed, so great was the satisfaction expressed by the crowded audience, that this interesting troupe give another entertainment this day. The performances are very much in advance of anything of the kind hither- to witnessed in this city-indeed we have never seen any at all approaching to them-the public, we feel convinced, will derive as much delight from a visit to the Circus as we did-and we are not easily pleased. This Company, however, is really talented, and, as their stay amongst us is necessarily short, we have no doubt the citizens will see that the opportunity now offered them is not allowed to slip away unim- proved.

His Excellency will not go north and will be spared the humilia tion of the Russian envoy. The visit te Calcutta has proved a fortunste delay.
