TO OUR READERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 5 July 1854

TO OUR READERS. Iît our last issue, we intimated to our Friends and Supporters that it was our intention to change the Title of our journal, and to issue an edition so far improved, as to be an emphactic demon- stration of our earnest desire to secure to ourselves, by strictest attention to ren- der that journal useful and interesting, that approbation and patronage which has enabled us this day to publish " The Hobarton Mercury," which we issue from our office with satisfaction to our- selves, doubting not, but fully relying, that it will meet with the same from its readers. A question will naturally arise in the minds of those, who, for the last eight yearsjhave read the same eolumnsunder the Title of the " Guardian," why we should change .the name ? A moment's reflection will suggest the reason. Wc'jnust first confess, however, that the alteration comes not directly from i us, but at the instigation of so many whose interest, pecuniary and domestic, are so identified with those o...

ANTI-LIQUOR LAW MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 5 July 1854

ANTI-LIQUOR LAW MEETING. On Friday last, a meeting was held at the Temperance Hall, Bathurst-street, to forward the establishment of an Anti Liquor haw. Major Cotton presided The Chairman introduced Mr. Blair, from Port Phillip, who came forward, and addressed the meeting at considera- ble length. Amongst other things, he said that it gave him much pleasure to respond to the invitation sent to 'him from. Tasmania, and to speak upon a subject so engrafted upon the minds of all. He then entered upon a description of the destructive effects of intemperance, and went on to show that the only way to put a stop to this monstrous evil was to establish a law prohibiting the traffic in intoxicating liquors, and to endeavor to further this end was the object of the mission on which he had come. Tem- perance societies had been formed, and, were not found to have the desired effect. Total abstinence societies were instituted, and now these were all merged into one grand effort to abolish the tr...

FOREIGN NEWS, (From Liverpool Mercury, March 17,) PRUSSIA AND THE EASTERN QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 5 July 1854

FOREIGN NEWS, (From Liverpool Mercury, March 17,) PRUSSIA AND THE EASTERN QUESTION. The address signed by several mem   bers of the Prussian Chambers has at length been presented to that govern- ment, calling upon Baron Manteuffel to give some explanation as to the exact position of Prussia in the im-   pending war ; to state whether its inti- mate relations with the cabinets of Vienna London and Paris are maintai- ned : and to establish by a frank declara- tion that confidence which can alone op- pose " the illegitimate voices" that seek to present themselves as organs of the country. To this requisition Baron Mahteuffel replied, on Monday last, that the government would shortly make some communication to the Chamber in explanation of its policy, and that the fleets about to enter the Black Sea are those of power with which Prussia is on good terms and at peace. However in- complete this intimation of the Prussian cabinet may be the King of Prussia has alr...

ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 5 July 1854

ENGLISH NEWS. A New Engine of Destruction.-A change has come over the spirit of our dream of war and conquest during the week. A nameless and mysterious dread has crept amongst the boldest, and the tone of mocking jib and rash defiance is altered in our sal mc for that of dread and dismay-the loud sarcasm at the operatic boastings of the Czar changed into whispered suspicions of their appro- aching justification. The French journals are silent altogether upon the subject which concerns us most, and it is there-   fore, from mouth to mouth that the rumor has spread which has filled us with scorn and indignation. The news which has had this effect is at present based upon strong supposition only, but which once grown into certainty, would turn this con- ventional courtesy with which we have all this while been acting towards the Em- peror Nicholas, into burning indignation and contempt of so base and trecherous an enemy. It appears that however great the astonishment crea...

LOYALTY TO THE THRONE. PUBLIC MEETING. A very numerous and highly respectable meeting was held on Saturday evening at the Victoria Theatre, for the purpose of expressing the unfeigned loyalty and attachment of the people of Hobart Town to Her Majesty's Throne and Person. The meeting was convened by His Worship, the Mayor, in accordance with a resolution emanating from the Municipal Council ; and amongst the many meetings which have been held in this city it is a pleasing fact to have to record that none could be more   unanimous in sentiment than that held on last Saturday - men of all shades of politics combining with the utmost good feeling and harmony to express their fealty to the   gracious monarch who now rules the des- tines of the mother country. The capacious theatre was crowded in   every part, and amongst the many gentle- men on the platform we noticed the fol- lowing :-The Hon. the Speaker of the Legislative Council, the Mayor of th...

Is the Maine Liquor Law in accordance with the Spiiit of the British Constitution and the Liberty of the Subject?" was resumed by Mr. Weston Hat- field, who took tho negative aide, contending that such a law would bo a flagrant invasion of the rights of personal liberty, and opposed to the constitutional practico of the country from time immemorial, the laws of England being peculiarly adapted to preserve the per- sonal rights of the meanest Mibjcc t, while they provided for tho prevention of crimeand the punishment of the criminal.
