THE SHAM FI[?]HT AT MARQUISE[?] [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 27 December 1854

THE SHAM FI íHT'AT MARQUISE' The little town of Marquise wob selected as the base of the military operations arranged by the Emperor of the French as a parting compliment to Prince Albert. The town is situated on arrising ground some eight or nine miles from Boulogne or the road to Calais. With respect to the number of troops present there was the greatest discrepancy in the estimates ; some said HO 0ÓV, some 42,000, and some went as high ¡is (50,000. However. GtneialGrey informed me that the actual iiümBer pre-ent was 22,00V», and the probability te that the estimate «as as near the truth ns it w.iK j odible to make it. With these difficulties in the way, circumstantiality of military detail are out of the question : but the pervading intention of the day's evolutions was, that the em- peror commanding at an covering Boulogne, should be attacked by a hostil ? army under the command of (General Schrainma and coming from Calais«.

MUNICIPAL ELECTION. Fellow Citizens,- , 'Noone'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 bo' altogethei served thereby." In every state of Society, bound together by ' rules and regulations, imposing duties and obligations on all; there must of necessity bo 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 rational liberty. The lukewarmncss and apathy of a people forge their own chains, nor can liberal political insti- tutions flourish when the indifference of a nation regards alike the blessings of a constitution, which entails personal responsibilities, or an absolutism, which relieves the people of their duties At the expense of their liberties. In this hemisphere there are many who would shrink at the ch...

MAURITIUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 27 December 1854

MAURITIUS. Our advices from this colony reach to the end of October. The depressing influence of the recent visitation of cholera was still felt but trade was gradually reviving. The state- ment of the revenue for the year ending 30th September, exhibited a remarkable ¡ncrease on that of the year preceding it, and the Com- mercial Gazette thus accounts for it . Referring to the increase in this year's Revenue, we remark that the receipts from the Customs exceeds those of last year. This Increase must not be attributed to the extra .sugar tax, us it «.«.us only paid on a small por- tion of ¿ligar when the account below was clo- sed, fruin i npôrts alone there are £53,000; mid from etpdrta the revenue has also in- creased, the quantity of produce being larger.

Local Intelligence The Theatre was so completely crowded last night that scarcely breathing-room was to be obtained. Miss Goddard, and Mr Caple's debut was a most decided "hit."

Willi all our care to render our price cur- rent correct, we are unable to publish it as it wonld beno more than an nppoximation, such being the un- certainly arising from the preying circumstances that all prices must be considered nominal. Busi- ness in fact is for the present almost at a stand still. Hay and oats are down considerably, good hay realizing only £7 to £9 per ton, and oats 6s6d per bushel. It is however to be hoped that by the end of harvest the unusually good season and heavy crops will tend to produce a leaction and that trade will exhibit a little of its old loveliness. A con- siderable exportation of fruit to Viotoria has taken place. Sydney markets present us in some respects with almost a reduplication of our own.

VICTORIA THEATRE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 1 January 1855

VICTORIA THEATRE. The Theatre reopened on Tuesday last with the Lady of Lyons and the pantomime of Harlequin Hogarth-the house was crowded and the audience hilarious as befitted the season. The Lady of Lyons introduced Mr. Caple and Miss Goddard in the characters of Claude Melnotte and Pauline. The gentleman at once recommend- ed himself to his audience by the taste and pro- priety of his costume which was correct and in accordance with the time and locality wherein the incidents of the piece are supposed to occur. In this he followed Macreatly-who as a model we may without any great offence prefer to either Mr Wal- ler or Mr Stark-and it is the first time that the character of Claude Melnotte has been represented in its proper costume on the Hobarton stage. The favourable impression thus created was',confirmed by Mr Caple's performance'; he treads the stage as a gentleman, his enunciation is clear, his réadiffg correct, his interpretation spirited without rant. He may fairly be pro...

THE ELECTION which this day will decide, ¡s one which, however creditable its issue may be to the city of Hobart, has been far otherwise in its initiatory proceedings j and it rests with the electors to determine whether that disgrace shall be perpetuated by their votes. It is for them to decide, not only on the personal merits of the can- didates, but the circumstances which attend their nomination, inasmuch as the ability of the man may be neutralized by the influ- ence under which it is expected to be exer- cised : it is for us to draw their attention to some of those particulars, for the discus of which we have hitherto had,neither space nor opportunity. It may be, that they may be then somewhat assisted in forming their deterncination. We do not for one moment doubt that in the list of names appended to the requi- sition of which we have so often spoken, are to be found some of the wealthiest and most influential member...
