THE MINSTRELS. BENEFIT OF BURBANK AND DEMEREST. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 18 March 1858

THE MINSTRELS. BENEFIT OF BUIIBAXK ANB BEitDlfEST. Tue alacrity with which the Managers of the Minstrels responded to the wishes of many persons to prolong their clever entertainments for another week, has not, we regret to say, been responded to by a proper acknowledgement on the part of the publie, the audiences having been few, while the performances have b.jen as amusing as ever. We have al- ready recorded our opinion of the versa- tile abilities of this choice compin}', and this opinion has been endorsed by tlnse upon whose judgment we can rely, and who have experienced repcatod enjoy- ments from their visits to the Royal. It is no credit to Tasmania, then, that she alone of all the Colonies should have failed to patronize sueh real talent, and so earnest a desire to please ; but such is the fact, and we regret it. There is, however, an opportunity to compensate, in some degree, for this neglect and apathy. This evening .Burbank and Demerest will take their benefit with a serie...

SEA BATHING. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 18 March 1858

SEA BATHING. Ox several occasions we have called attention to the ab-ence of any ncco n m-idation for the healthful enjoy ne it of sea ba'hing; and we have Uiged upon those whose pe, uli.tr province i. might happen to he to wavell over the health and comfort of th.- Cit z m-« the necessi y for adopting some means by which this very s-cioui wane might be supplied But in this, as in every oilier similar instance, the old adage-" thai which is every body's business is nobody's busi- ness," has been amply verified. The Government does nut consider it to be a part of its duty to watch over the sani- tary welfare of the citizens, and the Corporation doe* not consider it to be its duty either. And so, between the two, a second summer is now "falling into the sear and yellow leaf," leaving the citizens as far from the enjoj'inent of sea bathing as they were when we gave prominence to the subject some two years ago, Some of our citizens, however, have taken the matter into their own hand*, f...

GENERAL INTELLIGENCE. Mr. RICHARD DRY.-The following is an ex-   tract from a letter received by a gentleman in Launceston by the last mail, and dated January 14th:-" The Queen has signified her intention   of knighting Richaed Dry; the Tasmanians will,   I think, be much pleased at the compliment." Mr Dry was in Rome in January, and there re- ceived the intimation that Her Majesty would either immediately, by letters patent, confer the   honor, or personally at the levee in June. Mr Dry very properly preferred the greater honor, and will be in London in May. We are happy to hear his health is on the whole satisfactory.

THE MERCURY [PUBLISHED DAILY.] THURSDAY, MARCH 18TH, 1858. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 18 March 1858

THE MERCURY frUBTASUED DULT.! THURSDAY, MARCH lSur, 1858. Tueue has been a novel political theory started of late, to define and expound , which a large amount ol' time has been : exhausted and a larj»o amount of wit and ingenuity displayed. It owes its origin, wo believe, to the teeming, pro- lific, and speculative brains of Victoiian politicians, who take, or seem to take, an exquisite delight in blowing political bubbles from their own imaginative soap-suds. If the "Representation of Minorities " be a child of their own be- getting, it is worthy of its origin. We have twisted it into every conceivable form to see whether we could not make something tangible out of it, but without . success. The name by which this new " idea " has been baptized is n paradox like the peoplo from whose loins it has sprung. The whole Colony of Victoria is a parados ; it is full of the htrangest contradictions and complexities, incon- sistencies and monstrous creations. And this " Representation of Mi...
