MUNICIPAL ELECTION. A MEETiNo of the fiicnds and supporters of the' six nominee candidates was held on Thursday evening at the Shipwrights* Arms', Battery-point, Captain Haig in the chair. Four of the candidates came forward to express their opinions. Mr. Lipscombe felt proud at the request made him by such a numerous and respectable body, and thought it his duty to comply with it. He'stated * that he had worked for twenty-four years ; andr, . having relinquished business, he should want some-' thing to do, and this was just the thing. He thought the Municipal Act wanted amending, and the ex- ~ penditure of the Coiporation money wanted watch- ie» " . > , . Captain Fisher eulogised Mr. Lipscombe's integ- rity a«'a trader, and thence inferred he had the' ability requisite for an- alderman : he knew he would use it. The other candidates, Messrs.

ALTERED NOTES AGAIN. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 23 December 1854

AfcTEItED NOTES AGAIN. ON Wednesday last, a respectable publican, on going td the internal Revenue Office, to pay his £50 license-fee, was much surprised when he was informed that dne of the ./foe-pound notes he tendered hud been altered from a one-pound note. The alteration had been carefully made, and any casual observer might have passed the note as a genuine five. From the recollection of the party who took the note, it appears that a decently dressed person entered the house about 9 o'efdek in the eveni fog, when there was a go'od deal of business coin); on, and calling for a glass of wine, ten- dered a fivé-pound note in payment. The 'change was given during the bustle, but upon looting at the note a second time, some little pUsp)c\on waa aroused,-«"«! » pcraoir was' sent to see if the party who had cuanged the note could be traced, but he was nowhere to be «en. The person who received it not being (like many others) a thorouglngoing judge of j genuine notes, passed the matter...

MUNICIPAL ELECTION. FELLOW CITIZENS, No one can doubt the propriety of the sentence " that every man should use his best en- deavours to promote the prosperity of his country, although it. might happen that < his individual interest would not be altogether served thereby." In every state of Society, bound together by rules and regulations, imposing duties and obligations on all, there must of necessity be individuals to take upon themselves responsibilities and labours, but for which, privileges and power would fall into the hands of a few, and arbitrary rule usurp the place of Tational liberty. The lukewannness and apathy of a people forge their own chains, nor can liberal political insti- tutions flourish when the indifférence of a nation regards alike the blessings of a constitution, which entails personal responsibilities, of an ,absolutism, i .ftVi1' "-'?.""°° «v rryHft ftf-i»*»»!»'. djttka «f t^° expehse of their liberties.

EXERCISING A RIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 27 December 1854

EXERCISING A RIGHT. The principal and the only real argument alleged to shew that no party feeling pre- vailed in the getting up of the requisition to the favoured seven, is that the requisiti onists were only exercising their undoubted right. They had a right .to nominate who ti ey pleased, and they exercised it. This proves nothing. A man has u right to speak on which side he pleases at a pub- lic meeting. His mode of exercising that right determines the yart he takes in its ptoceedings. The requisitionists had the right to choose a candidate ; their nomina- tion of seven to the entire exclusion of the sitting aldermen, evinced a party feeling a gainst the latter. The absence of any su- perior qualification on the part of the nomi- nees, confirms this opinion, and is little to their credit. Thus then, admitting the right of the re- quisitionists to select any seven men they thought fit, still the mode they have adopt- ed in exercising that right, is what we object to. They have sh...
