INCIDENTS OF THE BATTLE OF ALMA. » Numbers of mo6t interesting letters conti- nue to be forwarded from officers and soldiers engaged in the Crimea. They are unanimous in their descriptions of the desperate nature of the fighting on the Alma. " I felt (writes a corporal of the 42nd) whit I never felt but once in my life before, and that was when a boy at school, and fighting with another-I felt possessed of a nerve and resolution which I never believed was in nie, though T winced a little when a cannon ball or a shell came directly in my way, and on seeing tome of my contralles cut in two by it. The ballets were so thick it would make you think you were in a shower, consisting of hailstones. After we had taken the heights Tmind the ' Forty-twa' were the first to crown it) we sort of half fell out, and were half permitted. As I was looking "at the awful ramage, I came across a poor Pole ; he was shot in the belly, and was iu great agony. I went down on my knees, the tear stood in my e...

THE FATE OF SIR JOHN FRANKLIN. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 12 January 1855

THE FATE OF SIR JOHN FRANKLIN. The veil that obscured the fate of Sir John Franklin has been unexpectedly lifted. Dr. Rae, of lhe Hudson'* Bay Company has reached England, bringing with'him from the Arctic sens a number of articles that belonged to Franklin and his companions. The story of the recovery of the memorials is mort pain- fully interesting. Dr. Rae's account, which may, of course, be implicitly relied on, is this.. In the spring he fell in with a party of Esqui- maux who were in possession of a number of articles known to belong to Sir John Franklin himself, and other things the property of mem- bers of his party. These articles included amongst the rest some silver plate hearing the crests of the owners. When the Esquimaux were questioned as to the way in which they became possessed of such valuables belonging to officers of the Royal Navy of England, they said that the vessels of Franklin had been cruahed in the icebergs, and their crews forced toset out over'he snow on...

EXTRAORDINARY ABDUCTION CASE. (From an Irish Paper.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 15 January 1855

EXTRAORDINARY ABDUCTION CASE. (From an Irish Paper.) John M'Naghtan was a native of Derry. His father was an opulent merchant, and gave his son all the advantages ot a most liberal education. He graduated in Trinity College, Dublin, but having inherited from his uncle a large estate, which precluded the necessity of engaging in any profession he commenced a career of dissipation, then so common in Ireland. He married early, but his extravagance soon involved him in such distress that he was arrested by, the sheriifin his own parlour for a considerable debt, in the presence of his pregnant wife. The shock was fatal ; she was sized with a premature labour, and both wile and child perished. Being a man of address and ability, he was appointed to a lucrative situation in the revenue by the then Irish government, and in the com be of his duty contracted an intimacy with the family of Mr. Knox, of Prehen, whose daughter, a lovely and amiable girl, was entitled to a large fortune, independ...

TO OUR SUBSCRIBERS AND THE PUBLIC [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 15 January 1855

TO OUR SUBSCRIBERS AND THE PUBLIC In consequence of the représentât ¡ont made to us by many of our country subscribers in which our town friends so far as we are aware, fully participate, we are about to change the time of publication for this Journal. The Mercury after Friday next will be published on the same days as at present, but will become an evening edition instead of a morning paper. In making this alteration we act only in defertnce to the wishes of nur friends which as our country sub- scription is more then that of any other Journal in this colony, we could not do otherwise than attend to. When our machine and its appendages arrive, (of which we arc in daily anticipation,) we may prob- ably extend our vicws.and Vic Mercury may become a daily Evening Journal ; and thus fill up the vacancy which the absence of ony evening newspaper worth railing stich, has hitherto left. In this, however, as in all our proceedings, we shall consult first and fore- mast tlie wishes and inte...

The Hobarton Mercury: MONDAY MORNING, 15th JANARY, 1855. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 15 January 1855

Cfte fgotmrtoti &ttvtuv# i MONDAY MORNING, 15th JANARY, 1855. The difficulties which impede the colonista in availing themselves of the ample supply of labour, now laying in unemployed indo- lence at the immigration depot in Hobarton, are such as almost to neutralize the benefit expected, from the past and profuse expen- diture of our land fund. The payment of '£5 hy the master, prior to removal of his servant from the depot, might stand very much in the way, since it is in fact asking him to advance a portion of wages for a servant of whose qualifications he is per- fectly ignorant ; but, bad as this is, it is nothing when compared with the obstacles which the immigrants, by their monstrous demands, present themselves. This, with their own very gênerai incapacity, tend to make us regret that the. immigration funds have not been kept' in hand^until some meaiuies could be adopted thtt would make their expenditure as beneficial as was anti- cipated, both to the immigrants, and...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. Sir,-Having occasion to refer to an alma- nack for the present year, I took up that pub- lished at the " Advertiser" Office. Much to my surprise, I found that St. Patrick's Day had been this year postponed to the 19th March. Can yourself or any of your readers inform the possessors of the almanack in ques- tion whether a new bull authorising the post- ponement of the anniversary of Ireland's Saint has yet arrived ; and whether it (like the tickets for the German lottery) has been en- trusted for dispersion to the publishers of the " Hobart Town Daily Advertiser?" Two still more startling anniversaries have been announced in the same publication. Look at the columns of events in the month of February, and you will find that her Most Gracious Majesty was married on the 10th of that month, in the year of Grace 1849, butthat the royal infants were in some instances ushered into the world previously to that happy event-for instance, the Princess Alice Maud M...
