The Hobarton Mercury: MONDAY MORNING, JANUARY 8TH, 1855. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 8 January 1855

Cue ftofcftrton íttevcurj» MONDAY MORNING, JANUARY 8th, 1855. Msop (if we recollect rightly, not having the book at hand for reference) relates that, upon a certain time, a lark returning to her nest in a corn field found her young ones in n state of great pertubation. En- quiring the cause, they informed her that the husbandman had been through the field with his sons, and, finding the corn ripe, had arranged with them the propriety of send- ing to his neighbours, that they might on the morrow come and help him to reap it : this impending catastrophe it was that had excited the nnxieties of the brood. The mother, more versed in human ways than her young, told them that »hile the hus- bandman waited for his neighbours tlieie was little cause to fear ; and, on ths nexc day, » ent on her usual occupations. When she again retuined, the found her biood once more in trouble : the husbandman had been overheard determining to summon hi3 relatives to his aid, to reap the field on the morrow...

ARRIVAL OF HIS EXCELLENCY SIR H. E. F. YOUNG. THE NEW GOVERNOR OF TASMANIA.

The steamer came .in sight at eight o'clock, and at nine the private signal wa» made. Immediately on this being known, the necessary summonses were depatched to the members of the ExecutivcCouncil, and the heads of department», whose presence was required on the occasion.

FINGAL GOLD ! We extract from the Cornwall Chronicle the following interesting letter upon the sub- ject of the Fingal Gold Held.

TO THE EDITOR OF THE MEBCURT. ««WHO ROBBED THE POOR MAN OF HIS BEER?" SIR,-Being one of the sons of toil, whose hours of relaxation are few anti far between, I do occasionally wunder about the beautiful environs of Hobart Town on the Sabbath ; for it has ever been my opin- ion that the smoke-breathing and dust swallowing denizen of the city, who goes forth in proper mood, if but to listen to the music of the " sad sea waves," or to enjoy the wild beauties of our many flowered dells, who " looks from nature to nature's god," pays a truer homage to the creator than the gloomy fanatic immured within conventual walls, dealing out all the pains and penalties which a distorted imagination generates, on all who inav happen to differ with him. With these views, I wended my way towards Kangaroo Point, took steam, and after the successful . termination of the voyage, proceeded to explore the interior of that beautiful, but in reality little known locality. Tempted by the beauty of the scenery...
