THE PANAMA ROUTE. (From the Sydney Morning Herald.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 18 May 1857

THE PANAMA ROUTE. (From the Syduo) Morning Herald.) Tho "to be or not to be" of tho Ptmnmn route depends now, to some degree, on our friends in Melbourne. We Rather from his ISxcellency 's reply to the députât ion from i ho public meptius, that the Executive have abaiained from committing themselves either to au accept ance or rejection of Mr. Wutton'a proposal until they had ascertained the views ot the Melbourne Government on the sub- ject. Tho simpe in which tho scheme was first brought forward did not contemplate the co-operation of Victoria tis anything more limn ii contingency-as an adjunct to the pinn which might be lopped off or added on at pleasure, but which did not enter in us an integral part of tho whole scheme. The shape which it assumed after being subjected lor some time to the ugitatioti of public opin- ion in Sydney, was somewhat dill'cretit. To our citizens it appeared a preferable plan that tho company should conirnct with this colony alone, which should guirnnte...

MISCELLANEOUS SHIPPING. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 18 May 1857

MISCELLANEOUS Süiffij u-. GADO ISLAND LIGHTHOUSE AOAIN.-Shipping news of the 11 th inst. presents another startling proof of the inefficient manner in which this im- portant coast light is conducted» We have been informed on good authority that at present the slock of oil is very short. Ihe Governor General has a large supply of oil on board, and which she w<is unable to land on her way down, and which at this season ot the year might have to be taken buck to Sydney. It will be in the recollection of our readers thut about two years since the light was permitted to go out for want of oil, and that this Government promptly despatched, per fiiv>t steamer, u »upply.

COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENGE CITY ARTICLE. Mercury Office, Saturday Evening. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 18 May 1857

CJOMMERCXAL? INTELLIGENGE CltY ARTICLE. Mercury Office,. Saturday Evening. The general state of trade is dull, which may be attributed, in some degree, to the non-arrival of the English mail, which has caused o disinclination hy both sellers and buyers to make engagements to any large amount ; several articles, however, which were getting bare in the market, have found a ready sale to supply current demands. In the grain market we have little (o report, -wheat remains at former quotations, 7a being the íiTgliosí'price obtained lor a few choice samples for seed; "flour is bought from the millers at £18 per ton, and only for present demands ; oats are in re- quest for exportation, at from 7s 6d to 8s per .bushel; the supply is good, as is also that of wheat, a considerable quantity having come to market during the week, the price, if anything, has a 'downward tendency. . " -In timber a slight alteration has taken place in the figure for the most useiul qualities, this will be found no...

LAUNCESTON AUTUMN RACES. These tuces came off on Wednesday last, on the old course ; and, although the weather was fine, the att ud.ince was by no means large.

THE LAND SCHEME. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 18 May 1857

THE LAND SCHliME. In answer to a question relative to the Land .Scheme put to Mr. Henty at Launces- ton, Mr. Douglas begged to repl»,, ami as a 'member'of the Assembly he was enabled to state that the Lands' Committee had agreed to a system which was briefly, that lands be aold by aueh'ou ; purchasers of lots to the amount of £50 entitled to claim them at an average of £1 per acre : payu ents by instal- ments, and at long periods, to be made by labouring persons nud those of small means. We have only time nt present to enter an - earnest protest against any such scheme. What chance, presuming the land* to e really valuable, would a small capitalist have with the wealthy monopolist? Such a scheme as this would uproot all our hopes of indue. ing emigration, and of securing the cultiva- tion of the Land. We set our face against a proposition which at once dispels our ouly 'Lopes of redeeming the prospects of Tasma- nia.

Honest and distinguished mer- cantile houses refused to have any thing to do with Government contracts, because they are obliged to preface the proceedings by brih ng the department«.

EMPLOYMENT AND EMIGRATION. (From the Globe) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 18 May 1857

EMPLOYMENT AND EMIGRATION. (From the Globe) * Nothing can belmore ti itural, when work- ing men are unemployed in a parent country, than to look out for other employment in the colonies : and it must be taken as a proof of intelligence rather than otherwise, if the working 'builders, and the boot and shoe makers, who are thrown out of employment by the changes in trade, should demand to be carried across the seas where population is scanty in Comparison with the extent of land. In reference to this demand, a wholesale emi- gration of unemployed classes has been recom- mended ; and thus an impulse is given to the movement which may perhaps lead to'v disap- pointment, and even to the very serious injury of the-working classes in question. The working classes have been told in detail of the demand which there is for labour in the colonies-in " those colonies that can be-t re- ceive and utilize the elements of population. Good cooks, good housemaids, good maids-of all-work," arc told th...
