RICHMOND RACES. FIRST D[?]. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 7 January 1858

ÍÜHMOND RACES. FiitST Day. These races commenced yesterday. Large numbera of our citizens left town by Kangaroo Point, and almost every kind of vehicle might have been seen tending towards the point of attraction. Still tho attendance on the course was by no means so largo as on previous occasions, although the racing on the whole was exceedingly good. The dav was nae ; but at times the dust was - anything but agreeable. With one ex- ception the utmost harmony prevailed throughout. That there should have been an exception at all is a matter of regret ; that tho good feeling should have been broken by those who should have set un example to others is still more to be deplored. But so it was. An honorable member of the House of Assembly and a Justice of the Peace, both deeply interested in maintaining the reputation of the district, so fur forgot themselves as to re-open an an- cient feud in the presence of the assem- bled multitude. As we do not know upon whose shoulders the blame of...

THE MERCURY [PUBLISHED DAILY.] THURSDAY, JANUARY 7, 18[?]58. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 7 January 1858

THE MERCURY [prjBUSUEU DAUA'.] THURSDAY, JANUARY 7, 1838. Wb Tasmanian* are a remarkable people, and we are possessed of an equally re- markable Government. Bath the one and the other arc endowed with the urne distinctive, peculiar, and whimsical feature, although there is not one par- ticle of sympathy between the governed and the governing. The principle which regulates the conduct of the Government regulates, also, tno conduct of t..e people -the public proceedings of the Ministry being thj archetype of the public pro- ceedings of the citizens. To strain at a gnat aud to swallow a camel, has been, and still continues to be, with each au aim and au achievement. The more contemptible the object, the more strongly do our digestive organs rebel against it ; the more gigantic its pro- portions, the greater the zest with which we gulp it down. Thus we sec the people swallowing with ease and com ''" placency that prodigious bolus-the anti- cipated rejection of their Land Bill ; yet nuki...

MISCELLANEOUS EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 7 January 1858

MISCELLANEOUS EXTRACTS. OLD WINE.-The King of Wurtem- berg will offer his august guests some   of the celebrated, wine from the Bremen cellar, known as the Rosenwein, which is only offered to crowned heads on rare occasions. This wine, deposited in the cellars of the town-houses of Bremen, is two centuries and a half old. It was made in the year 1624, and was placed in twelve casks, bearing the names of the twelve apostle. It is drawn bottle by bottle, and never more than one at a time. The calculation among the vul- gar is, that a bottle of Rosenwein costs upwards of eight millions of fiancs ; this fearful sum is made up of the original cost of the wine, with interest and com- pound interest of the same since 1624, rent, taxes, &c. We may, however, add, at the risk of destroying the romance of these figures, that the said casks of Ro- senwein have been repeatedly filled and exhausted during the last half-century, and that the fame of the Bremen cellar is mainly...

TERRIFIC BUSH FIRES AT THE HUON & PORT ESPERANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 7 January 1858

TERRIFIC BUSH SIRES AT THE HUON & PORT ESPERANCE.   The Culloden, steamer, which arrived last evening, brings intelligence of bush firess of a terrific character. Already the damage done to property in various parts, is said to be very serious, and great fears are entertained, that the conflagration will exceed that which some years since desolated the Huon district, For many miles the bush was on fire, and the flames fanned by the high wind, had spread with fearful rapidity. The air was filled with smoke, whilst the intense heat emitted from the burning forest rendered the passage up in the steamer anything but pleasant. The fire was burning fiercely a little above the Franklin near Mr. Hay's Mill, but we have not heard of any serions damage being done. Port Cygnet, according to the latest account, seemed as yet to have escaped the des- tructive element. Several huts at the back of Port Es- perance have been burnt, and large quantities of timber and palings des...

THE BRITISH LION, OR THE BENGAL TIGER; WHICH IS THE GREATER SAVAGE? (From the New York Irish News.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 7 January 1858

THE BRITISH LION, OR THE BENGAL-TIGER; WHICH IS THE GREATER SAVAGE ? (From the New York Irish News.) When money is easy and sales increas-   ing, when "gallant allies " are loyal and colonists submissive, there is no happy family so serene and self-possessed as the British Lion, the English Bull-dog, and Mr. John Bull. But we trust that our gentle readers may never hear the roar- ing of the British Lion, the howling of the English Bull-dog, and the bellowing of John Bull, when these animals are   denied their feed by Chinese Commis- sioners or Indian Rajahs. Yet it is a uuique characteristic of the Englishman that when he is thirsting for human blood, and ravening for plunder, he pro- claims himself the champion of civiliza- tion, kisses the cheapest edition of the Bible, and declares himself a meek Christian, so help him God! While he gloats over the pictures and the graphic details of Chinese and Hindoo tortures and indignities on women and children, furn...

MISREPRESENTATION [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 8 January 1858

MISREPRESENTATION The Daily News of yesterday lu» con- trived, in the small space of a column and a half, to vent its indignation against the Proprietor of this Journal for having stated that the Daily News was shortly to be incorporated with the Mercury. The writer is evidently groping about in the dark ; and, it is not our intention to enlighten him at pbesext. If he will curb his impatience for a very brief period, he will learn more. How is ib p ossible for servants to know what may be the pleasure of their masters--until they are informed of it? DENIAL OP JUSTICE. The mode of transacting-or, rather, we . should say, of not transacting, business, at the Police Court for the last day or two, amounts to a positive denial of Justice. Both on Wednesday and Thursday there were prisoners who could not be tried, and informations which could not be heard, because of the gross negligence of those whose duty it is to give their attendance ou the Bench. Out of all the gentlemen whose names...

THE TROUBLES IN THE THREE GREAT MONEY MARKETS OF TUE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 8 January 1858

THE TROUBLES IN THE THREE " GREAT MONEY MARKETS OF TUE WORLD.

It is a most unusual circum- stance for the three greatesfcmoney mar- kets in the world to lie thus simulta ncouslvstricken. In England, however, the quiet is merelythe quiet ol' caution ; in France it results from financial exhaus- tion consequent upon a previously infla tedspuculation. lu America the situation presents many features analogous to that in france, but with this différence-that the rotteuuessia near tiK'surf.ieu ol' things.
