SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 13 May 1857

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. Our intelligence from this colony 'u lo tho 4th instant. The Legislative Assembly had voted the reply to the Governor's address, without amendment. The Itegisfar gives the following particulars relative to the population of the colony : In his speech at the opening of Parliament, his Excellency estimated the population of the colony at 490,000. We felt confident that the estimate was erroneous, and we lost no time in saying as much. Since then the Chief Secretary has made a corrected statement. Ho acknowledges an error in the estimate referred to, and says that it arose from an omission to deduct the Chinese who have gone overland or up the Murray, these persons being included in the Custom house lists of arrivals, but not appearing in the departures. It is well known that the Chinese aie mere birds of passage, and should not be reckoned with the population of the colony. But in deducting the Chincsd, we cannot make our figures correspond with those of the Chief Sec...

IRISH POLITICS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 13 May 1857

IRISH POLITICS. We find the following in the Times of February 16th : To-day the Attorney General for Ireland will move the expulsion of Mr James Sadlier from the House of Commons for not surren- dering to the warrants which have been issued against him for complicity in the frauds of the Tipperary Bank. Such a proceeding is, hap- pily, rare in our Parliamentary annals. Eight years ago the seat for the county of Limerick was declared vacant an account of Mr Smith O'Brien having been adjudged guilty of high treason ; but the present is an act of a more judicial kind, since the House will be called upon to expel a member who has not been legally convicted of any offence. The judg- ment will proceed on the ground that flight or concealment affords proof presumptive of guilt, and that therefore it is the duty of the Commons to take the same course as if the offender had been duly convicted in a court of justice. The sooner tho Legislature is freed from the dishonor of Mr James Sadleir's...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. We do not identity our opinions with those of our correspondents. PORT ESPERANCE. To the Editor of the Mercury, Sir,-The weather we have experienced here during the past Week having a similar result as the stormy state of the political atmosphere causes in the Metropolis, viz.no work can he done while it last. In the absence of better employment I venture to offer a remark or two upon our wants in this neglected spot. No place on earth could better exemplify the evils of monopoly than this unfortunate but beauti-   ful locality -possessed as it is of great natural ad- vantages whether considered as a sea-pot or the productiveness of its soil, it stands equal , if not su- perior to any place in the Huon district, but the   land withwater frontage on the township side of the     Port is in the hands of one individual or the mem   bers of his family, who without means or energy to develope its res...

DIFFICULTIES OF NEWSPAPER EDITORS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 15 May 1857

DIFFICULTIES OF NEWSPAPER EDITORS. Every man depends on the times in which he lives. The writer, the active politician, or the leading statesman, in order to succeed, must find public opinion, in some degree, prepared to support him. But who can now bring forward any measure that requires unity of purpose in this nation ? Society is a mere aggregate of so many classes, and so many interests, each caring for itself. In church and state, in questions of policy and social economy,-do we not find, everywhere, a division and snb-division of opinions, that must require some long period for their re- conciliation ? Parties are now strong enough to prove obstructive to each other, and to the men of no party ; but none is strong enough to prevail, or to carry any great plan into execution. Who can predict ultimate success | to any one of the parties into which society ii noir divided ? Who can propose . measure that »ill solve the enmity of party.¿rid doo*, a cordial anti general support fro...
