COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE^ Launceston, Mat I3ih, 1857. The highest price we have heard of having been realised fur Feed Oats, by account sales from Mel- bourne, is 10s lOd. per bushel, though for small parcels of the prime-it quality for seed, as high as lls.Od has been obtained there. The export of this ai tide, hence, has been so very expensive for a long period, that bnfra limited quantity, mid that in the hands of a few speculators, remains for sale. The price is therefore likely to continue high for some time ; it varies at present according to the quality of the aiticle, from 9s 6d tn 10s 6d. per bushel. Wheat is in rather better demand, in con- sequence of intended shipments lo Sydney.and from 5s 9d. to 6s per bushel, can be icadily obtained. Fine Flour remains as usual at £14 to £15 per ton. Potatoes, £6 £6 10s, there being no demand far any export. Hay, trussed, £0 10s to £7 per ton ; do' pressed, £9 to £9 JOä. Flour per ton of 2000 lbs. At Steam Mill Tamar . ' £. (Thompson &...

THE WORKMAN'S HOME. (From the Sunday Times.) 1 here are few diseases that afflict huma lity so productive of misery as the diserse of ignorance.

MSICELANEOUS. j\kw Mode or üehovino tumours. Dr. Simpson, of Edinburgh, has been experi- menting'on the removal of tumours by a'me- thod novel in this country. He introduces a hollow acupuncture needle, or very fine trocar, into their tissue, and injects a few drops of soma irritant liquor-such as a solution of chloride of zinc,pcrchloride of iron, or creosote. The effect has been to destroy the vitality of the tumours so treated, and they have been separated by a process of enucloation. AVe have seen a somewhat similar plan adopted iu Paris of M. Maisonueuve. He has slender stylets made of a paste composed of (loudwater, and chloride of zinc. These are baked. A puncture is insdo in the tumour, the caustic stylet is inserted, broken off, and left. AVe saw several malignant tumours treated in this man- ner, and some cases in which a healthy granu- lating surface was left after the separation of tumours which had beeu destroyed in this man- ner.- Medical Times.

THE MERCURY. $uuiís]jeD fHairtuis, iuïclmcsïm« &jFrfoau FBIDAY MORNING. MAT. 16th, 1857. No. 3. In any scheme which proposes to alienate tho Public Lands, it will be impossible, wo should think, to avoid talcing into our serious con ; i » ° sideration the condition of the Colony at the time such scheme is to be brought into opera- tion. The strength of the disease raustieguiate the remedy. Extreme measures-measuies which, under oidinaiy circumstances, would stai tie and appal by their dating, might, in other* cases, divest themselves of evciy wild and visionary appeaiancu, and assume an aspect full ofhope and pioniiso. It will not be denied that the Colony, just now, is in an unenviable position, moral, social, and politi- cal ;-und, it is equally apparent, that to es- túcate it from that position will demand much skill, Arnims-, and forethought. Hut, we can see no reason for the tone of despondency in which many indulge. True the Colony is sick, but it is not unto death. Th...

The pieces produced were the Lady of Lyons, and That Rascal Jack. Mr. Warner appears to be as great a favorite in Launceston as here, having, in company with Miss Glyndon, been twice called before the curtain.

REVIEW. THE TIPPERARY BANK TRAGEDY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 15 May 1857

REVIEW. THE TIPPERARY BANK TRAGEDY.   Whenever you are going to tell a lie, says the sagacious Mr. Augustus Tomlinson, al- ways begin by saying, " It is an acknowledged fact —." This admirable principle — which, by the way, may be recommended to the at- tention of the author of " Railways and Re- volvers in Georgia," to the last Yankee cap- tain who sailed in company with the sea serpent, and to the gentleman whose clothes were saturated with frogs during a shower — this principle lias been reversed by Mr. Cos- tello. His very pleasant fiction, " The Joint Stock Banker," is, in reality, one of the most unpleasant facts of the day. It is so true to the details of the Tipperary bank swindle that it can be considered a work of imagination only in the light of police report poetry. The bank bubble, the Hampstead heath suicide, and the other known incidents, are all reproduced with a dramatic delineation of cold-blooded character, which is the more impressive be- cause mixed...
