FUNERAL OF MARSHAL De SAINT ARNAUD. The remains of the late marshal, con- veyed to France by the war corvette, Ber- thollet, were interred at the Invalides, on Monday, the 16th October. At ten o'clock the car moved slowly forward, followed by three persons iu mourning cloaks, carrying cushions, on which were borne the various insignia of the deceased marshal. Those were imme- diately followed by the aid-dc-camp of the deceased marshal, who had accompanied the body from the East. Next came the charger of the marshal, covered with a net ornamented with silver stars.Aftcr it came a state carriage of the Emperor, drawn by six horses, and two other carriages with four horses each; and these were followed by a number of mourning and private carriages.

[?]oral news. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 15 January 1855

Borxl H*fo*. A MORTIED ENEMY. - Just as the procession was rounding the Court House at the angle of Macquarie and Murray-street, there stood against the gaol wall a black and bilious looking personage whose countenance betokened the most unbounded astonishment mingled with not a little annoyance. The singularity of such an appearance at such a moment caused considerable speculation - few how- ever were aware that the unhappy and discontented mortal was one of Sir Wm. Denison's most bitter opponents the truckulent and unscrupulous libeller   of the colony - Mr. Wilson of the Melbourne Argus. We trust that the practical contradiction then given to all his abuse will not fail to weigh with him and induce though a tardy still a sincere repentence. THE CORPORATE FRACAS. - With respect to this affair in which Mr. Alderman Sims seems to be so seriously implicated, we shall make ourselves fully acquainted with all the circumstances which we have peculiar faculties for doing, an...

DEPARTURE OF HIS EXCELLENCY SIR W. T. DENISON. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 15 January 1855

DEPARTURE OF HIS EXCELLENCY SIR W. T. DENISON. As our readers are already aware the time fixed for His Excellency Sir W. T. Denison's departure was two o'clock on Saturday last ; long prior to that hour, however, the streets were crowded by re- spectable persons, either anxious to witness the proceedings or intending to take part in them ; and as the time drew near, the concourse increased and manifested an intense interest in what was going on. About a quarter to two all eyes were turned towards government house, whence issued the commencement of the procession which was formed by the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, headed by their grand sword-bearer, Mr. F. Cane. The brethren were all habited in the insignia of the order, the officers of the grand lodge surrounding the Grand Master bringing up the rear. Imme- diately behind them came many of the most influ- ential and respectable colonists walking two and two ; and these were followed in due order by public officers, ministers o...

MAYOR'S COURT. Before His Worship the Mayor and Mr. Kilburn.     Friday 12th January, 1855. Fane v. Nance. This was an information on the complaint of Mr Holdship, against Mr James Nance, of Burnet-street, charging him with having on   his premises a hog-stye, the same being a nui- sance to the neighbours. Evidence was adduced to show that the filth from the defendant's premises flowed into a neighbour's yard, and that in hot weather the smell from the same was extremely offensive. In his defence Mr Nance stated that his house and premises were kept as clean as any in Hobart Town ; he had a cess-pool in the yard but his house being on a hill the water would flow downwards. His Worship said that as the property was his own he was bound to have proper drains : every one was bound to have their yard and premises so as no nuisance should occur to his neighbours or the citizens. Mr Nance said his place had never been inspected, nor had he received a...

TO OUR SUBSCRIBERS AND THE PUBLIC In consequence of the representation* made to us by many of our country subscribers in which our town friends so far as tee are awaret fully pat ticipate, we are about to change the time of publication for this Journal. Tlte t Mercury öfter Friday next will be published on the s ame days as at present, but will become an evening edition instead of a morning paper.
