LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 8 May 1857

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. FIRE.-Yesterday morning, about half- past 10 o'clock, the alarm of fire spread rapidly over the city, and crowds from all directions might be seen hurrying towards Elizabeth-street, in the very centre of which the conflagration waa raging. The fire broke out on the premises of Mr. Byland, Confectioner; and, evdently, first arose in the upper story of the building. 'The first thing which   seems to have attracted attention was the smoke as it was blown across the street. One and another ran out of their shops to see from whence it came, and whilst they were looking a flame broke out between the piece of skirting which surmounted the side wall of the building, and the wall itself. The alarm was immediately given to Mr. Byland who was totally unconscious of the work of devastation   going on at the summit of the building he   was then in. We believe, Mr. Elliston was the   first who conveyed the intelligence to the...

NEW AND OLD COMMUNITIES. (From the Economist, Ftbruaiy 14 ) That no Legislature carl make good laws unless well acquainted with tbo community for which it legislates, is such a palpable aud ad- mitted truth that we are almost ashamed to state it. Yet no longer ago than the week before last we had to refer to theChancellor of the Exchequ"r and the leading daily journal as exhibiting-the one by his condemnation of luxur}', and the other by endorsing" his advice -an example in the highest quarters of ig- norance of tho circumstances which bring about civilization, and are especially instru- mental in promoting our national wealth and greatness.
