THE LAND SCHEME. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 25 May 1857

THE LAND SCHEME. It is a significant fnct,and one which should arouse the attention of the people of T.is.iiauia, that in all the surrounding Colonies the ques- tion, ns to Hie disposal of the public Linds, seems, simultaneously, to have acquired an im- portance never hitherto attached to it. lu Vic- toria especially where all minor questions werj absorbed in the magnificent contemplation ol' the gold fields; the public lands-notwith- standing the btrongest assurances tint the yield of gold is rather on the increase than otherwise-aie beginning to attract serious attention. This, we say, is a significant fact ; and plainly shows that our gorgeous neigh- bours are discovering th.it the real wealth and ultimat j prosperity of a country-however ap- parently accelerated by fortuitous circumstan- ces-must bo secured by the cultivation of the soil. Nature has established it-as one ol her laws-that prosperity shall go hand in hand with industry; and that a blessing shall lest upon any coun...

THE BRITISH MILITARY SERVICE. (From the London Times.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 27 May 1857

THE BRITISH MILITARY SERVICE. (From the London Times.) No wounds are bo sore and so slow to heal ns those which any military miscarriage in- flicts on the pride of a people. The English nation has certainly as little to complain of in this respect as any of its neighbours. In spite of incompetence, favouritism, and a defective military system, it has managed, by means of courage, perseverance, and profuse expenditure, to fight, and, in the end, beat its enemies in every part of the world. But perhaps for this very reason the country is the more restless under the consciousness of not having done its best on any particular occasion. People do not seem to forget the Crimean campaigu. Neither Ncufcliatel, nor Bushire, nor Canton, nor the Income-tax, nor grievances present, nor reforms to como can abate the interest with which the public receives auy details concerning tiio glories and disasters of the great expedition. We ourselves should bo willing to leave tho whole affair to history...

MISERIES OF THE OVERLAND ROUTE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 27 May 1857

MISERIES OF THE OVERLAND EOUTE. An " Old Traveller" writes to the Times from Bombay, complaining bitterly-and certainly not without cause, if only half of what he states be authentic-of the discom- forts and ill-usage experienced by himself and others during a late journey to ludia overland. His reason tor adopting this course, he states to be, that the virtue of a letter to tho Times^ even from a distance of 10,000 miles, may operate as a cure for the imposition complained of:-I was one of about 140 persons (says the writer,} who embarked as passengeis on board ,the Peninsular aud Oriental Company's steamer Colombo, at Southampton, on the 20th of September last, to proceed to India by" the overland route. Up to the period of our arrival in Alexandria a merrier party could not well be found, or a voyage moro agreeable be described. The v weather was fine, the ship swift and strong, the captain and his officers and well ordered crow left little to be desired even by the most fastidio...

GRAND AMATEUR PERFORMANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 27 May 1857

GEAND AMATEÜE PEEI'OEHAS'CE. Every arrangement being now perfectly completed, these performances will be pro- duced to-morrow evening with an eclât, we Bineerely believe, hitherto unequalled in this Colony. Attractive as our Amateur Theatri- cals were in times past, the present entertain- ments will be incomparably more so, and a glance at tlie programme of the performan- ces, with the names of the performers, will, we thiuk, bear out our assertion. Amongst the latter will be found more than one of our old established and well known favourites, while those, who are new to us, give excellent promise of the most successful result, which cannot fail to be realu.d by the talented assistance of Miss Glyndon and Mrs. Har ward, old favourites too, and deservedly so. The pieces selected for the evening's enter- tainment ure precisely of a character calcula- ted to render them agreeable and as they have been well re-hearsed, and as each actor takes a lively interest in his and her part, we m...

The Coloni.il Secretary in the Upper House pursued asimilar course, and as the Appropriation Act has been passed only for nine months, and will empire in September next, it will be but reasonable to concede to the Administration the delay which they have solicited. The Memorandum of llicir policy was laid on the table, and read by the Clerk. From a mtro cursory glance, it is impossible lo judge accurately of the details,but they bhall receive every consideration at our hands. The plan of...

COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE VICTORIA. (From the Herald.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 27 May 1857

COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE VICTORIA. (From the Herald) At no period within the past season,.of dill ness lins so much animation pervaded the im- port markets as now characterises them. The anxiety of intending buyers to effect purchases of a speculative nature is so great that the tendency to an advance in prices makes itself more manifest every day. This upwmd move- ment, however, is especially evident in the grain market, and the extraordinary rise in the value of oats, bran, maize, &c, must,'in some measure, be attributed to the rc-action which has taken place in the city since the arrival of the Simla. Added to this, the circulation of an apparently well-grounded report, to the effect thnt the markets are supplied with no more than one month's consumption of oats, has likewise had its influence. Scotch oats have been selling to-day at 12s Cd ; and colonial seed have changed hands at 15s Cd ; bran is worth 4s, at which figure buyers are plentiful ; for maize, 11s Gd and 12s ...

a picruRu oi<" Canton. The following sketch of Canton will be road with interest :-? The approach to the city from tbe ancho- ring grouudi of Whnmpoa has often been described. The singular beauty of the land« scape is speedily eclipsed by the attractions of the river. You find that you are gradually entering a floating town. Long before Can- ton is reached, the ban k3 of the river are cora plelely hidden hy a- deep fringe of floating habitations. From the skiff-like Sampan to the portentous junk, built with the timbers of a seventy, four on the Hues of au iceberg, there is every variety of marine and amphibi- ous architecture, from the flower boat, as gorgeous if not as graceful as Cleopatra's. barge,"mauncd" by women ns virtuous though not as comely as the Egyptian Queen, to» Mandarin junks which with their successive tiers of oars, and soldiers who will not fight, again carry us back to Egypt and the battle of Actium.

THE LAND QUESTION, [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 27 May 1857

THE LAND QUESTION, We give insertion to the Eeport of the Select Committee on the Waste Lands Bill. The plan proposed by the Committee, as will be seen on perusal of the document, is most monstrous,-as throwing the occupation of the lands into the hands of mere monopolists and capitalists : if Section 7 is adopted, we know of one firm in Hobart Town which will at once purohase 10,000 acres in one block. A more iniquitous scheme, than that propounded by the Eeport never emanated from the " collec- tive wisdom" of any body of men, and the people .if they are alive to their best and dear- est interests, will resolutely protest against so injurious a disposal of the lands. For the pre- sent, we must rest satisfied with the publica- tion of the Eeport ; we shall, forthwith, criti- cize and discuss the scheme in detail. Eepokt of the Select Committee to which, on the 7th January, 1657, the "Waste Linds Bill" was referred by the Honour- able the House of Assembly. Yodb Committee have consi...

THE QUEEN'S BIRTH DAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 27 May 1857

THE QUEENS BIRTH DAY. Whether the loyalty of the Tasmanians has evaporated, or, whether the "pressure of the times" has rendered thom dull and careleis,wc know not, but the anniversary of Her Majes- ty's Birth Day on Monday was observed with peculiar gravity; the usual official demonstra- tions were, of course, displayed ; the public Offices and Banks were closed, as were the Merchants' Counting Houses, and the princi- pal shops and stores in the city. The Inde- pendent Order of Rechabites, the Juvenile Societies in connection with them, tho Band of Hope, the Temperance Alliance, and the other Temperance Societies paraded the principal streets in procession, preceded by bands, and with banners flying, and held meetings and soirees in the evening. At 12 o'clock, a review of the troops took place in the domain,in the presence of His Excellency,who appeared in uniform, and wore for the first time the ribband and badge of the Civil Com- panionship of tho Bath.
