The Hobarton Mercury: WEDNESDAY. MORNING, 17TH JAN., 1855. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 17 January 1855

Cue ft oft* t: ton fUtettutjt x WEDNESDAY. MORNING, 17th JAN., 1855. ThS new Corporation seem to have a "tolerably lively sense of the dignity which hovers over municipal bodies in general, and themselves in particular, from the Mayor who thinks £600 per annum scarcely enough to feast the citizens in the true style of civic banquets, to Alderman Lipscombe, who is ambitious of possessing, like Dog- berry, "gowns and everything handsome about him," and Alderman Thomson who is a!he to the sort of cockpit in which the council holds its sittings, and talks of a new chamber. Alderman Sly however spreads his sails to catch the popular gale, and hoists a signal-reduction of twenty five per cent in the taxes-which is suie to find approvers, whatsoever may be the dis- cretion evinced by the approval. In the matter of the banquets we take no interest, nor do w e think the citizens would much care if none at all were given: as íespects the gowns, let the question be re feired to the most compet...

SPAIN. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 19 January 1855

SPAIN. The troubles of Spain are not yet appeased. Even Espártelo, the popular favourite, the only man who can still tho voice of clamour, and combine with security tho-functions of a courtier and the duties of a patriot, finds it impossible to preserve order or conciliate confidence. His own party aie more vexatious to him than his avowed opponents ; and while he has won over the Queen to ¡latter the Na- tional Guard in .Madrid by conferring special fa- vours upon their officers, his influence is exerted in vain to control the violence of some of his old allies and followers. The ancient Biscayan spirit has been recently in- voked in a revolutionary speech by General Sala zar, and has responded to the appeal with as much vehemence as if the capitnl was still in the hands af the expelled Queen Mother, instead of being ruled over by a man of the people.' There are ru- mours also of Ciirlist conspiracies that arc said to be hatching in Italy; so that altogether, the con- dition of the...

MISCELLANEOUS SHIPPING. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 19 January 1855

, MISCELLANEOUS SHIPPING. The long looked-for and anxiously-expected 'Madras entered Hobson's Bay on the 14th instant, and anchored at half-past two. She left Singapore on the 22nd December, where she was detained six days awaiting the arrival of the mail. It appears that some accident to the machinery of the steamer Pottinger, engaged to convey the mail, was the cause of this delay. The steamer Antelope was found to be ashore at King George's Sound, where she had been several days. Captain Parfitt offered, and was prepared to render any assistance, but the master felt confident that the means he was adopting would enable him to get the vessel off at highwater on the following evening. The Madras arrived at Adelaide on the evening of the 11th instant, as the Havilah was leaving.-Argus.

VICTORIA THEATRE. Mr. Caple's benefit is announced for this even " ing, when Macbeth will be performed, the benefi 'ciai'o enacting the character of tho murderous ursurper, and Miss Goddard supporting him as | ' Lady Macbeth. i We are quite justified in anticipating that grati- fication whioh is ever experienced from witnessing j the exhibition of high-histriorio excellence, and we hope that Mr. Caple will at length meet with that appreciation of his merits as au actor which some unaccountable prejudice seems hitherto to have withheld. Dramatic patronage in this city .and wc are sorry that truth compels the admission -is about as capricious and unreasoning as patron- age can be.

POLICE REPORT. Befqrt A. H. JE. Wilmot, Esq., Police Magistrate WEDNESDAY, JAN. 17TH, 1855. Climbing tin Fence., Jumes Hook, a respectable young man, who works a craft on the river, was charged with resisting a constable yesterday. From the evidence of Constable Whitting- ham it appeared that the defendant was climb- ing the feline before Government House, during the levee ; he wus told to desist, when he refused, and on being taken into custody, be resisted, by putting himself in a fighting at- titude. Constable Watts gave similar testi- mony. On the other hand, mr. Alexander, of the " Advertiser" Office, deposed to the effect that he was near the defendant, looking on at the levee; the defendant wai standing near the fence, but not on it, when the constable came up, and told hiin in a very rude manner to move away. The defendant said he was a free man, and had a right to stand there ; the constable then seized the defendant by the throat, and pulled bim away ; he was after- wards ...

EUROPEAN SÜMMABY TO 9th NOVEMBER. Continued from our Extraordinary of Yesterday. PREFRATORY REMARKS. (FROM OUR OWN CORHESPONDIÍNT) London November 9. 1834 The occurrences of the past three weeks have been of the highest interest, but Sebastopol is not yet taken. The difficul- ties are extreme, but there is full confidence they will be surmounted. To witness the excitement here now, you would fancy us much more a nation of warriors than of shopkeepers, and resolved, apparently, to stint neither blood nor treasure «in carrying out our objects. We are not a little sen- sitive, too. Louis Napoleon, in addressing a letter of condolence to Madame St. Arnaud whose husband died of his complaint and cholera combined, /lauded him as having pursued his plans^pnite of 'timid counsels" mid has had since'to explain that he did not allude to the English general.«, but merely to some differences in the French Couacil of War.

Commercial Intelligence. ENGLISH MARKETS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 19 January 1855

Oomwemal intelligence. ENGLISH MARKETS. ..-. The wool market, all things considered, is in a very healthy condition, and the quotations are con- sidered to be abont 5 per cent, higher than they were at the August sales, although at Liverpool last month home grown was in many cases some- what lower, the stocks, however, being so low as to prevent any material decline. During October, the public sales cleared off nearly all the foreign ' wool there was at the outport, and the imports there were about 3800 bales smaller than in the corres- ponding month of 1853. The rise in corn has been rather against wool as well as other staples used for clothing purposes. At Bradford, and in the worsted districts, this is most felt, the trade there being bad and unremuncrative ; but in the clothing departments a steady business is doing. The Continental buyers are operating rather freely at the London sales. The Liverpool prices current are as follows : The following is a statement of the Sales, da...
