THEATRE ROYAL [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 29 May 1857
THEATRE BOYAL Tlie Theatre last night presented an appear- ance which must have highly pleased all. who ?witnessed it. Tlie dross boxes, and the boxes generally were one splendid blaze of beauty and fashion, and the pit exhibited an'audience equal to that displayed In the boxes ; in fact, we never s»w the Theatre so splendidly at- tended. The Governor occupied the centre box with a party from Government House, and on each side the fair ladies of Tasmania radiated, as from one common centre, forming a coup dceil of the most beautiful description j and all seemed to enjoy tho performances with the utmost pleasure. It would be of course invidious to eriticise the performances of amateurs, bnt each and all exerted themselves so as to gain the well deserved applause of the audience; every- thing was well done, and nothing was left to be wished for, thus evidencing the kindly feel- ing on tho part of the performers to secure a real benefit to the Lessee, while, at the same time, they enha...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. We do not Idonttty our opinons with Uiosa ot our correspondent« .THE OVERWHELMING MINORITY. To the Editor of the Hobart Town Mercury. Sir,-And what do you think of the ex- hibition in the Assembly on Tuesday even- ing? Tlie overwhelming minority of the Gregson-Meiedith faction is a settler: only think-the great Gun, Gregson ; the blunder- buss, Meredith ; and the little Boy, " over- whelmed " hy their own absurdity. The'di vi»ion was extremely significant, not only irom its numbers, but from the mode in which it occurred, Maxwell Miller, ashamed of his worthy colleagues, bolted outright, and the little Boy was sneaking away also, over- whelmed w itU shame, when he was whipped back to complete the glorious Trio. Shame, oh ! Shame, to the Electors of Hobart Town ! And a deeper shame to their independent re- presentative ! The unmistakeable demonstra- tion in the House on Tuesday has, I hope, decisively put an end to those unseemly ex- hibitions winch have' dis...
