Local [?] [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 3 January 1855

Coral JUtoíí. To OUR READERS.-Yesterday being a general holiday, our " off\ce," like the rest ofthe good folk, took the opportunity of enjoying themselves, and thus delayed our publication a few hours. This however is not to be regretted, since it enables us to give them the first authoritative intelligence of the real state of the poll, and the election of the IVIayor. SCIENCE, UTILITY AND CoMroRT.-At the recent meeting of the British Association for the advancement of Science in St. George's Hall, Li- verpool, a variety of inventions and models-rail- ways, steam-engines, ships, almost every conceiva- ble variety of the different brandies of intellectu alizcd industry were exhibited. Descending to mi- nor evidences of human ingenuity, the mcmbeis came upon a model wheel-barrow, which was exhi- bited at the meeting of the Association last year the particular merit in which, according to the in- ventor, consists in the position of the wheel, which is placed under and sunk into the bo...

FOREIGN. RIVER KATSCIIA, SKPT.28.-The main body of the fleet remnins here at anchor for tho present, there being no anchorage to i the south, off Sebastopol and all the way round to Balnklaba tho water is very deep close in. Sir E. Loyns with the in- shore steam squadron, is away to Balaklava superintending the disombavcntion of seige artillery in the harbor. The little basin may bo made to hold a good many moderate sized vessels, and being so thoroughly land-locked will be very valuable to us. Lord Raglan has for the present established his head quarters at Karatchntcha, in a 'line between the head of Sebastopol har- bor und Balaklava. The weather has been beyond expectation beautiful and favourable. The tents for the army have been sent in a «hip to Balaklava (the poor fellows .hnve hitherto been obliged to sleep in the ?open air owing to the impossibility of get- ting transpoit) ; and it is now sinceiely hoped thnt the sickness which has so perseveringly dogged their steps will ?...

FOREIGN & COLONIAL. VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 3 January 1855

FOKEIGN & COLONIAL. VICTORIA. Our advices are to the 27th, but are al- most destitute of interest. The most pro- minent subject discussed in the journals is the struggle between the compositors and the master printers, which seems not likely to come to any amicable termination. The' Argus contains an article on the estimates from which it appears that the resolution of the Legislative Council to reduce the amount voted from £4.801,922 to £2,400,000 will lead to the following re- sults:-the expenditure ou the public works is to be lessened by £600,000 : sewers and water supply at Melbourne and Geelong estimated at £600.000 are not to be gone on with ; the debts due to banks and the corporation £600,000 are not to be paid this year; and the remaining £730,000 is to be met by retrenchment iu j the government offices which it seems will not bo very difficult. We only note that if Melbourne ia to be left in its present disgraceful condition as to diawnge and water supply for anot...

A SHORT ACCOUNT OF THE ORIGIN, COMMENCEMENT. AND PROGRESS OF THE RUSSIAN WAR. No. 1. Those who have witnessed the interest and impatience with which the arrival of every mail from Europe has been received ; the dis- appointment caused when the intelligence was indecisive and unsatisfactory ; the cnthusissm and joy that greeted the news of victory ; will acknowledge that of late years we have had no mure important subject of attention than the »viirin which Great Britain is at present en- gaged. Iiis unnecei-siiry for tis to enter into a lengthened discussion on the causes which led to that, and the achievements that have marked its progress; hut inasmuch as there can be no doubt that the peculiar nature of newspaper intelligence has u tendeney-to con- fuse the order and incidents of events, not less than to obliterate those just past by the greater iuterest of more im mediale occurren- ces, .it appeared to us that we should do our readers some service, if we gave them in as succinct...

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 3 January 1855

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. THE intelligence from this colony is to the 20th of December. Sir Henry Young left by the Bosphorus on that day. He had been seriously indis- posed, and was therefore compelled to de- cline the intended banquet, but held an un- dress leveo on the 20th. The council voted him a complimentary valedictory ad- dress to which he replied in writing. Sub- scriptions for a testimonial were rapidly gathering, and his portrait is to bo taken and hung in the council chamber. _ Tho lively <sorv4>npoi>cl<»>t-o£-«.ka>-C.Airgw*U. gives a few incidents in more concise terms than the local journals, and we therefore make a fcxr extracts : A good deil of business has been done by Council this session, and n great deal has been hurried over in the last three or four days of it.

The [?] Mercury[?] WEDNESDAY MORNING, JAN. 3RD, 1855 [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 3 January 1855

Ehe fgofcftrtott f&cvtnvp WEDNESDAY MORNING, JAN. 3RD, 1855 AMID the many subjects t o which the attention of the editor of a public journal is directed by his correspondents, it is diffi- cult to avoid a step that will gratify-tlig, vanity of one, at the' expense of exciting the jealous indignation'of all the rest. Each considers, his own grievance or topic the most impor- tant : and the soft compliments upon editorial discernment are really meant to imply that the proof of its possession will rest in the. acceptance of the contribution, or the attention paid to the recommendations it contains. «. Your well-known liberality and candour," means, be liberal in appreciating my good things, candid in denouncing those whom I oppose. " Your usual indepen- dence" being interpreted, may be understood to convey a sly hint that that independence will be forfeited, unless the writer's opin nions ore adopted. And, should the un- lucky journalist fail fully to discern the im- portance o...

SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 3 January 1855

SYDNEY. The journals to the 23d are before us, und from them we select the most valuable of their intelligence. The Empire reports nu investigation of a charge of Lynch Law which presents some singular features. Thomas Martin, Alexander M'Cnbe, George Masson, and Joseph Boyle wore charged at the Water Police Office with having on the 6th of November last on the Island of Upola, one of the Navigators group, assaulted with intent to commit a felony one Richard Brewster by putting a rope round his neck ana suspending him thereby to a tree till he became insensible. The evidence dis- closed some strange circumstances. It ap- pears that Brewster was an intermediate passenger by the Isabella from San Fran- cisco, which left that port on the 16th September. McCabc and Martin were steerage passengers, and Boyle and Masson belonged to the crew. The Isabella put in at the island of Upola for water on tho 31st October, and the passengers went ashore. On their return, one of them named West, di...
