INSOLVENT COURT-WEDXESDAY. (Bjfore Jlr. C rai ni-sioner Browne.). IN BE 1MILLIP HART. Adjourned first general meeting, and adjourned meeting for discharge. .Mr. Macdow.il having applied for the insolvent's discharge» Mr. Crisp opposed the application, on behalf of Mr. Gabriel, and on tw'i grounds ; first, incurring debts without ¡my reasonable expectation of paying them j and second, having wilfully dissi- pated his means to the injury of his cre ditor-i. The learned gentleman referred to tile evidence, which he submitted would substantiate the grounds he had set forth, as the insolvent hud rushed recklesslj- into a law suit to the injury of Mr. (jabrie.. Mr. Macdowell replied : a more frivo- lous attempt to oppose the discharge of an insolvent had never been made in that court. It appeared that the insolvent, who was not so well acquainted with the law as his friend Mr. Crisp, consulted those who advised him, that lie had good cause of action against Mr. Gabriel, mid the action was...

THE MINSTRELS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 11 March 1858

THE MINSTRELS. The Theatre Royal last night was not by any means so full as we hoped to see it, nor so full as it ought to have been. The singing was admirable, equal to anything of the kind we have ever heard in Tasmania. In the second part the dancing of Demerest and Barbank was loudly encored and well indeed did it deserve it. We were never more gratified. As for Mr. Demcerest in the   Mischievous Monkey his feats were not only sur- prising but wonderful. We have our doubts whether he has any bones in his body. To des- cribe his evolutions would be impossible; they must be seen to be appreciated. We would warmly recommend our readers to witness the perfor- mances of this really talented company, when they will be as delighted as we were and will undoubtedly leave the theatre, as we did, with our sides fairly aching with laughing at the witticisms of Dave Carson.

EXPLORATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 12 March 1858

EXPLORATION. WE are rejoiced to hear that the Waste and Unsettled Lands Acts are already making their beneficial effects felt. We have all along been convinced that, if sufficient inducement were held out, there would be no lack of enterprising persons who would gladly assist in de- veloping our present ambiguous resources. The fact is we do not know the extent of our wealth, nor do we know of what that wealth consists. To stimulate dis- coveries in the heart of the country in order that this ignorance might be dis- pelled was one of the main objects of the Unsettled Lands Act ; and it is no small satisfaction to learn that that object stands a fair chance of being accom- plished. Mr. C. H. GLOVER with five others has started on an exploration to the South West. They have proceeded in boats round the coast in the direction of Point Hibbs and Port Davey. Pro- vision of every kind has been made to ensure the comfort of the party and the success of the enterprise. The search will not b...
