THE MONTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 10 March 1858
THE MONTH. The principal political event of the past mouth, has been the prorogation of Parlia- ment! which event took place on the 24th nf Fobrtury. This closed the second fcuion of the Parliament of Tasmania, a session which, for the amount of vain ihle legisla- tion jisrfonned, will long bo rir.i-'-.n.bpred. \mongst the various Acts which have become law, there ae some, which, we believe, will prove of incalculable and of listing benefit. The amount of legislation, unprecedented as that amount has been for any one sesiiuii, is fully equ tiled hy its value andbv til» nngnitii le of tim interests which will lie affected by it. Of the W ute Lands Acts we havn given a-i uu'.line in another column ; and to that on-.liu^', we again solicit the earnest attention of our readers in England. The importance of these measure* it is impossible to "wr-estimite. One great feature in the legislation of the Session, has been the extension of the power of those of our Municipal Institutions which ...

THE MERCURY [PUBLISHED DAILY.] WEDNESDAY, MARCH 10TH, 1858. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 10 March 1858
THE MERCURY rrrjBLISlIXD »ATÎ.Y.1 WEDNESDAY, MARCH lOnt. 1858. Bespossible Government, since its in- troduction into the Colonies, has not only been successful in its practical operation, but it has endorsed and gua- ranteed the triumph of a great political principle-a principle which, we trust, experience will induce the British Par- liament to rccognuc in all its future legislation for England's Colonial pos- sessions. Responsible Government has dealt a heavy blow to disloyalty and disaffection ; it has hushed the distant mutterings of revolt ; it has turned fie sharp Teproaclies of the discontented political charlatan from the Crown to 1 local representatives ; and, it has swept away the foundation upon which alone the pillars of treason could have been based. The small aunoyances and vexations iiecc-sarily arising from the dashing of party interests in a scramble for power and pay will soon die out. The people will learn to discriminate between the empty pomposity and nobhingucs...

GENERAL INTELLIGENCE. ATTEMPTED Suicide.-Yesterday afternoon, about 3 o'clock, a young woman named Sarah Gordon, residing at No. 53, Davey-street, and who was confined in the cell at the Police office, on a charge of stealing a pair of child's shoes, attempted suicide by cutting her throat with a dinner-knife. She was conveyed to the Colonial Hospital, where assistance was promptly ren dered : the wound is not very dangerous, as none of the large vessals are divided. &nbsp; &nbsp; Faukwj-.m.

CLARENCE ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 11 March 1858
CLARENCE ELECTION. Considerable dissatisfaction is now being felt at tlio operation of the 56th Clause of the Electoral Act, which abolishes the practice of publishing in the Public Journals the reception by the Returning Ollicer ol' the Writ for the nomination of Candidates. The abolition oí this» practice cannot fail to cause considerable inconvenience, espe- cially as it is not generally known that, bj' the New Act, it is not incumbent upon the Returning Officer to do so. Provision is made in the Act, and it is rendered imperative upon the Returning OlBcer to give "Public Notice" of the re- ception ol' the writ within four days af'cer he has received it, and to state the days of nomination, and the day of polling, should there be a contested elec- tion. These words, however, have been construed to mean the placing of a paper, notifying these facts, on the door of the Police Office in the District in which any election is absut to take place, and this lias been done by Mu.

THE DEBT UPON ST. JOSEPH'S CHURCH. On Sunday afternoon a large meet- ing was held by the community attend- ing St. Joseph's Church, to devise means for defraying the debt that mains on that building, when the Bishop read the following address, which will explain the actual state of things, and, no doubt, produce the effect that is de- sired.

THE MERCURY [PUBLISHED DAILY.] THURSDAY, MARCH 11TH, 1858. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 11 March 1858
THE MERCURY rrUULISHED DAILY.! THURSDAY, MARCH lira, 1858. TUE approaching visit of Sin HESBY YOTJSO to England could not have occurred at a time when his presence in Downing-street is calculated to prove moro beneficial for the Colony. It is not considered complimentary to say of #ny gentleman that his absence is desi- rable ; that we prefer having his room to his company ; although, in the pre .eut instance, there is a sense in which it may he truly stated that the visit of His ExcEtiiiEXor to England is likely to prove of incalculably greater adv.in tage to Tasmania than his residence amongst us for the ensuing twelve months, could possibly prove. Wo have no reason to doubt but that SIB HEXBY YOUNO will carry with him to England the same solicitude for the welfare of the colony he governs as that which he feels whilst ho is amontrst us. We do not place any faith in, the doctrine which represents absence as an aug- menter of affection. We arc told that "abseuco makes the heart gro...
