Mr. WILSON, by leave obtained, moved to tho effect that it was desirable the government should not lose the opportunity afforded by the ensuing mail to take measures for the introduction of salmon, and said that unless immediate steps were taken by the present mail another year would be lost, and perhaps two years, before the salmon would be introduced into the colony.

THE SUBMARINE CABLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 21 September 1860

THE SUBMARINE CABLE. We announced in our last Summary that a portion of the cable across Bass's Straits was destroyed, and that thero was no possibility of restoring telemphio communication with the main land uutu a piece of now cable of sufficient length, to connect King's Island with the Hummocks had been procured from England. So far w stjepc with this viow have boon taken, and the question, we believe, rests upon tho terms of agreement likely to bo come to between, tho two governments of Tasmania and Victoria, But wo ara glad to say that that question is now assuming a practical shape wl.iioh promises a speedy setUoinout of it. The Colonial Treasnror gave notice of notion to oall the attention of Parliament to the expediency of reviving telegraphic communication with Vic- toria, and wo believe ho himself intends with tho sanction of the logislfttm-o to proceed to Melbourne in order persona^ to. effect arrangement« withtiio < Victorian Government on the subject.

INTRODUCTION OF SALMON. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 21 September 1860

INTRODUCTION OF SALMON. We are Borry to say there is a probability of the salmon experiment on whioh so many hopes have been based, being procticoUy deferred for another year. The Parliamentary committee appointed to report on the subject, have nfter a fuU enquiry and an examination of Mr. Black, the gentleman who had chargo of the ova on board the S. Curling, recommended tho trial of the experiment at the cost of the Colony, and with such arrangements and precautions as may guard it as far as possible from the chances of failure They have .gone beyond this, adapting in its integrity the plan proposed by Mr. Black, tho total'expense of which is estimated at some ¿£3000, and the principal features of whioh are the employment of a carefuUy prepared apparatus fed by an ample supply of water and ice, tho engagement of a competent manager to take charge of tho enterprise together \v\th ¿ne or two oxnerion.ced fishermen, and the construction at suitable spots on the Derwent of a system of...

RAILWAYS. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 21 September 1860

RAILWAYS. The carty construction of one ofthebest roads in the colonies, bisecting the island of Tasmania, and connecting the northern and southern capitals, and tho existence of great watercourses, have to a con- siderable extent prevented our experience of those difficulties in the way of internal communication, which have led in tho other colonies to the com- mencement of railway works at an enormous publia cost. But as settlement and the development of our agricultural capabilities have progressed, the desbability of introducing railway communication with a caution and prudence in harmony with the limited population and capital of the colony, has begun to force itsdf on public attention. It is felt that any attempt towards the establishment of a general systom of railway works would be pre- mature, and that the construction of isolated works calculated to benefit particular districts of the colony only, must be recommended by some local guarantee. The present position arrived at...

THE PARLIAMENT. Oue Parliament is still in session. During tho past month its attention has been directed to mat- ters of grave importance, some of them indeed re- quiring a lengthened notice at our hands. To others wo Bhall briefly advert in this summary, whilst others aro purely of a local character, which will only require to be named. Amongst the latter perhaps the most important are a Bill to supply the citizens of Hobart Town with water, a mea- sure of great sanitary and social importance and one which will bo productive of incalculable bene- fits ; and tho Cross and Byo Hoods Bill which will prove as advantageous for the country as the Water Bill will to the City, Both those Bills are still before the Parliament. The Water Bill has passed the Assembly and is now in Committee in the Legislativo Council. Tho CrosB and Bye Beads Bill is just on the eve of being sent up to tho Council.

NEWLY DISCOVERED AGRICULTURAL LANDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 21 September 1860

NEWLY DISCOVERED AGRICULTURAL LANDS. The Surveyor-General has recently returned from an exploration of the country lying between' the Rivers Mersey and Leven and in the vicinity of the Pattersonia, Piper's, and Ringarooma Rivers. His description of the hitherto unoccupied lands in those localities is in the highest degree encouraging. " Between the Mersey and Leven Rivers," he says, "there, are not less than one hundred and fifty " thousand acres capable of supporting nineteen " hundred families at eighty acres each. The soils "are almost uniformly of a red colour and are of " very considerable depth, varying about four to "eight inches in thickness. Their capacity for "production will be pretty well understood from   " the statements that, notwithstanding the very "rude and primitive fashion in which they are " cleared and cultivated, they will yield forty or " fifty bushels of wheat to the acre; and that the " same, if laid down in English grass, will carry " ten shee...

MONUMENT TO SIR JOHN FRANKLIN. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 21 September 1860

MONUMENT TO SIR JOHN FRANKLIN. Parliament has voted a sum of 41,000 towards the erection of a monument to tho memory of the great navigator who at one time filled the office of Lieutenant Governor of Tasmania. The graceful manner in whioh this appropriation was agreed to greatly enhanced the value of the vote. It passed the Lower House with general acclamation, and without one dissentient voice. In the Upper House one gentleman only was found to hint objection. But this is not all. The subject first came before Parliament in the shape of a proposal to erect a monument to Franklin on Betsy's Island at a cost of 4500, the ¿land which is the private property of Lady Franklin being presented to the Colony in return. This proposal wo believe was made at the instance of Lady Franklin herself. But the House of Assembly at once recognised the inadequacy of such a mark of respect to the memory of our late gallant and distinguished Governor, whose name will henceforth be for ever associated w...

THE WAR IN NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 21 September 1860

THE WAR IN NEW ZEALAND. The intelligence from the seat of war in Now Zealand continues to be of a very unfavorable character. In fact the prospects of the southern ^settlements are growing more and more gloomy. Notwithstanding the largo reinforcements of troops which collected at Taranaki, and the presence on ithe spot of the Commander-m-Chief of the Forces in Australia, no decisive blow has yet been struck against the enemy, who is daily becoming more self-confident and daring. The settlement of New Plymouth is hemmed in by the armed natives. The homesteads in advance of the town have aU been destroyed. Outrages of tho most atrocious character are committed with impunity before the very eyes of the troops. The latest in- telligence we have from Taranaki is to the effect that during the previous three weeks, several murders of settlers by insurgents, of a fiendish nature, had taken place. Their tomahawks were more feared now than their muskets. Ambush and massacre are the order of t...
