MR. COMMINSSIONER BROWNE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 19 March 1858
MR. - COMMISSIONER BROWNE. I r _ ¡I The gentleman with whose namo we have adorned these few observations has informed the pubiie from his judgment seat that " he never condescends to read the Mcrcuri/." We cannot but admire the learned gentleman's strength oí mind in resisting so strong a temptation, if, indee 1, he has succeeded in i eating it. We can assure Mr. Bhowxk that the loss is all on his side, Had he honored the columns of the Mercury with a perusal, he would very often have picked up crumbs of wisdom and good advice of which he stands much in need. Not condescend to read the Mercury \ Condescend too ! We like that. Then how does it occur that His Honor discovers what happens to be said in the Mercury concerning him F Has he an amanuensis to read oui Journal aloud ? Or does he discover j ita contents by intuition? Does his j own conscience tell him when there is: > or ¿s not au indignant article ia our columns .upon the disgraceful blunders which have ali nioug characte...

THE MERCURY fPtIBLISUED DAILY.] FRIDAY, MARCH 19th. 1858. On Monday next the 22nd instant a poll will be taken at Richmond, Jerusa- lem, Bellerive, and Rokeby, in order that the Electors may declare whether Capt. Ogilvie or Mr. Bctgess shall represent or misrepresent the District .of Cambridge in the Legislative Council. On Tuesday, the day following, the Electors of the District of Clarence will t>e called upon to decide between the respective claims of Messrs. Dawson and Abbott, both of whom are aspiring to the honor of representing that Dis trict in the House of Assembly. Upon the superiority of Mr. Dawson over his opponent Mr. Abbott we have already expressed n pretty strong opinion. The latter gentleman has been weighed in the balance and has boen found most miserably wanting ; whilst Mr. Dawsox, . who is a native of Tasmania, has, at all events, the negative merit of never hav- ing been tried.

SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 20 March 1858
SYDNEY. We have Sydney papers to the 13th instant. The investigation commenced by the immi- gration authorities of New South Wales into the alleged disorderly proceedings on board the Stebonheath during her voyage from England to Sydney, was not terminated at the date of the last advices thence. The version of the af- fair as given by the passengers differs so radi- cally from the story detailed by the matron and surgeon at the inquest on the body of Ann Cox, that it is very doubtful whether the present en- quiry will produce a satisfactory result, and more particularly as the evidence is not taken on oath. The Sydney Morning Herald very &nbsp; &nbsp; properly declares that the public will not be contented with anything less than such an in &nbsp; vestigation as will elicit the complete facts.
