TO TBS PUBLIC. THE HOBART TOWN MEEOURT WE may proudly and confidently invite a comparison of this Journal with any and all of our Contemporaries It contains, although published only thrice a week, quadruple the amount of matter, the earliest, most orrect, and most varied intelligence, Foreign and Domestic, while its Circulation is three to one of some, and more than two to one of all, thus affording the most extended and advantageous medium for the announcements of our Advertising friends.

COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE Launceston, Mat (Uli, 1857. The import of Scotch and Irish Oats at Mel- bourne, being trifling this season in comparison to what was expected, coupled with the unfavourable report with reference to the New South Wales Maize crop, has had the tffect of increasing the demand for Oats beyond all expectation.

REFORMATORIES.—JUVE NILE OFFENDERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 8 May 1857

REF0RMATORII3S.-JUVE NILE ti OFFENDERS. IN The following is an epitome of two Juvenile Reformatory Bills, now before the Imperial Parliament : Sir George Grey's bill deals with those children who have been convicted by some legal tribunal ot some crime. At prêtent the reformatories are supported principally by vo luntary contributions; but they receive a weekly grant of 7s. per child from the Trea- sury. The number, however, of such insti- tutions is comparatively small. By a return made to parhan-ent last year,tlte number of cer . tided reformatories was only 26, the number of children being 1500. The prison instruc- tors tell us that 7000 children are annually added to the criminal classes. Besides this, ii .ippeitrs that the sources of charity are already beginning to fail, aud that many, even of the certified reformatories, are in difficulties from want of funds. The manner in which Sirsj-J George Grey proposes to meet the public de- mand for reformatories is simple, and on thal...

COLONEL TULLOCH'S REVIEW OF THE "CHELSEA" REPORT. (From the London Times.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 8 May 1857

COLONEL TÜLLOCH'S REVIEW OF THE "CHELSEA" REPORT.« {.From the London Times ) ÏHe volume of Colonel Tolloch is now be- fore uá, and We at once invite the attention of every Englishman to its exposure of the illu- sory inquiry at Chelsea. The report of the Chelsea boaid Has been hitherto received with that vague but justifiable distrust which its constitution and mode of procedure inspired. The Crimean Commissioners could not be ex- pected to recognise the authority of ita verdict, and accordingly Sir John M'Netl, bang un- connected with the military profession, declin- ed altogether to appear before it. But Colo- nel Tulloch, though sharing his colleague's objections, had not the same option. As a soldier he waa bound to defer to a body ap- pointed by the General Commanding»in'Chief and in consequence of the imputation of un- worthy motives made against him by Lord Lucdn he. was forced to present himself before tlie B"oard in his own defence. His appear- ance was,however, to little p...

TUE EAST INDIES. *' Our ad i ice» fmfn the far East now extend to the 13th of February. Here are the most interesting items from the Calcutta journals of that date : THE WAR WITII FERSIA. A letter from Bushire mentions that it was expected an advance would take place soon after General Outram's arrival.

THE DOMESTIC TROUBLE. (From the Daily News.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 8 May 1857

THE DOMESTIC TROUBLE. (From the Daily News.) The old and everlasting trouble, the per plexity about domestic Bervice, seems to weigh heavily on the mind of society just now, from London to Sydney on the one hand, and from London to tb# great Aueri: can Lakes on the other. The servants have their own complaints to make, as we know both from daily experience and from certain police cases which have been particularly portentous of late t but the difficulties of employers are heard of whichever way We turu, tn our Australian colonies there is no comfort (ol' gentlemen and, ladies fron day to day ; for the gentlemen have io clean their own boots, and gi' tdtn tlietr Own horse«) and the ladies must cook and sweep, while there is no one lo relieve ¿hem of the caro of the baby.

THE MERCURY. ÇuMfefirt íHonoau, TOrtmtsflms # JFrfbau FRIDAY MOIUUÄÜ. MAY, 8th, 1857. It bas been pretty freely asserted in tbe Bister colonies, that the introduction of Re- sponsible Government iuto Tasmania was a grave mistake, und revene éventa have giveu sainó colour to such an assertion j but We are by no means prepared to admit it. We have only just obtained possession-it is al- together a new thing ; nor are we acquainted as yet with its peculiarities, nor with its ad- aptation to our wants. The experiments hith- erto made have evidenced our ignorance, not its inapplicability. It lias beeti tortured, no doubt, to purposes for which it was never intended-we have endeavoured to dóve-tail it iuto private animosities -personal aggran disemeut-party politics-with all of which it, naturally enough,xrefuses to unite. Still there need be no fear but what we shall bit upon its right application yet. The wisdom of political manhood ought not to be expected from those who have scarcely ...

MORVEN ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 8 May 1857

MORVEN ELECTION. The nomination of a fit and proper person to represent this District in the House of Ab. sembly, took place at Evandale on Tuesday last. No opposition was offered by the Electors of Morven to the re-election of Mr. F. M. Innes, who was proposed by Mr. Rose, secon- ded hy Mr. Kirby, and declared duly elected. The Colonial Treasurer thanked the Electors for his re-election ; and accepted an invitation to a luncheon at the Royal Oak Inn. It appears that an invitation had been for- warded to Mr, C. B. Brewer requesting him to oppose Mr. Innes. This, however, Mr. Brewer declined doing ; believing it to be essential that any Ministry called upon to administer the Government should be re-elec- ted without opposition. We regret that Mr. Brewer's manly and honest avowal of his opinions should have subjected bim to a charge of treachery " towards those who consider Mr. Boys's re- turn a triumph." But it is the " Daily News" which makes the charge. Mr. Brewer's own letter will...

Hemmed in on every side by superior numbers, hy men fight- ing for their dearest national rights and liber- ties., and flushed with recent successes ; with a small force harrassed by perpetual watchful« ness, enfeebled by sickuess, enervated by an unhealthy climate, and cut off from all meat» of receiving fnrther reinforcements or supplie«: the career of Walker is, in all human probabi- lity, mu, and if he escape» with his life, it will only be to retire from the position his "vaulting ambition," or his want of sonso madly urged him t...
