RUSSIAN OPINIONS UPON THE INDIAN MUTINIES. (From the Northern Bee of September 3—15.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 8 January 1858

RUSSIAN OPINIONS UPON THE INDIAN MUTINIES. (l'i-om tho Northern Use of September 3-1 j.) Shortsighted would those people in Europe be who should wish England to sutler sensible losses in East India. In the present state ol' industry and com- merce England is indispensable lor Europe. It is true that she receives great advantages for herself from such a | state ol' things, but at the same time others as well are benefited thereby. To the enterprising spirit of the English, Euro|ie is indebtid'for the development hvits centre of manufactures and indus- try. The example of England, the ad- vantage* drawn by her from the work- ing up of raw produce, 'nave shown to others what the present position of civ- ilised European society is in tin industrial point of view, compared with that oi societies which are less civilised and lo=s developed in what relates to industry and commerce. lu England, at the present time, that universal steum-ma cliine has taken up its place which puts info moveme...

THE POLICE RATE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 8 January 1858

THE POLICE RATE. Tue objection, no>v being urged by the Citizens, to the imposition of a rate for the maintenance of the Police is not a new one. On the 15'h July, 1SÓ2, when the first Cyrporation Act was un ter the consideration of Parlament, Mr. T. D. Chapman pi--«posed-in or .1er to give the Munici alit'es a fair ¡-tart that one half the licence fee should be handed over to those of Hobart Town and Liuuceston. This was, however, opposed, not on account of its injustice, but, because, it would be inconvenient t.i mix up the City accounts with those of the General Government. Consider- able discussion took place at the time, the result of which was-that, instead of mixing np the two accounts, the Go- vernment proposed to allow the Corpo- ration £2000 per annum. This was agreed to, and the Municipal bodies re- ceived that annual sum. until the Li- cense fee was doubled ; on which event taking place, the grant in aid to the Corporations was doubled also. The Citizens, therefore, a...

THE MERCURY [PUBLISHED DAILY.] FRIDAY, JANUARY 8, 1858. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 8 January 1858

THE MERCURY [published daily.] TttlDAY, JANUARY 8, 1838 Al it is now pretty evident that there will be a deficiency in the Raven ue, it becomes a very legitimate matter for «peculation as to the means to be re- sorted to for making that deficiency -good. In addition to the amount of ex- penditure already ascertained to be in excess of tho R3venue, it is now moro than probable that a further sum of £4509 will have to be provided for po- lice purposes. In whatever way, or out of whatever funds, this sum may be paid, it will equally involve the neces- sity for replacing it by alditional taxa- tion of some kind or other ; and the question naturally arises, from what funds, or in what way, is that deficiency to be met ? Of course, we ara iu the moat sublime ignoraucc as to the intentions of the Government. The Budget is hanging OTer us like a thunder cloud ; bat we can form no conception of the amount of electric fluid it contains until it bursts . whoa, we suppose, we shall have an op- ...

LATER INDIAN NEWS, BY ELECTRIC TELEGRAPH. [FB03I OUE COItHESPOXDEN'ï.] Launceston, Jan. 7. 1858 4-30 p.m. The " Royal Shepherd" has just come alongside the Wharf, having left Victoria yesterday. The Overland Mail had not arrived, but there is later from India, which I hasten to forward : The Queen of Sheba arrived at Mel- bourne on Tuesday, with dates to the 22nd October from Calcutta, and by the Lorenzo Sabine, barque, we have later news from India. Tue Melbourne papers contain very little, except Official Des-   patches with reference to the taking of Delhi.

SYDNEY . Wo have Sydney papers to 2nd inst.' Tho Herald has the following on the subject of tho uewly-orgauised Land League : We cannot reiterate too strongly that with the gi eat object the Land League prolcsscs to have in view-namely,' the acquisition of freeholds by those who desire to settle on the soil,--we have the warmest sympathy. There is some- thing wrong so long as any man can rise up in our midst and say that he wishes to faun-that he lias the means, tho skill, anti" the will, but that he can- not get land. The faster the country can get tuleen up by actual ocuupioi s the hotter. Wa should depi coate any at- tempt to force on this result bv artificial laws, for such a course could only end in a waste ol the public means and resources. But freo trade will determine the extent to which agricultuial oucup ition will pay provided there is the freest access to the land.
