VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 22 January 1855

VICTORIA. Next to the news from the 6eat of war, the Melbourne journals ure occupied with the forthcoming state trials, and the case of Messrs. Lung and Drake. The Argu* has changed sides, and is now the advocate of the Government policy aa to the Ballaarat rebels. The H er M is wolently in opposition, ann raves absuidly utiout me necessity tor an amnesty, and the dreadful consequences that are to ensue immediately unless it be granieu.

This seems absurd. The main fact, as to whether the rebels were in the stockade und fired on the advancing troops, it» 'one which only those who were on the spot at the time can tell.

ENGLAND. POLITICAL.-In the absence ofParlia ment, little occurred to ruffle the surface of politics. Archdeacon Denison protests against a commission to enquire into his orthodoxy, by the Archbishop of Can- terbury, on the ground that his late dio- cesan had already decided the case, and the present one refused to re-open it. His Grace of Canterbury being obstinate, how ever, proceeds natliluss the protest. Mnjor Beresford nnd Sir James Graham have been indulging in a correspondence. At an agricultural meeting nt Castle He dinghnm, the major made a speech in jus- tification of his political career, wherein he expresse.! penitence for two votes, one of which was in defence of Sir James Graham's opening Muzzini's letters, and , he theieoiv gnve the following delightful portrait of'the Cumberland baronet: - " I did not like him (Sir James) then and I have plenty of reason for disliking him since.

EUROPEAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 22 January 1855

EUROPEAN. We regret that the general, tenor of the Intelligence from home ia not satisfactory, in the sense in which a prospect of peace i would give satisfaction. The operations before Sebastopol,'while demonstrating the soundness of that ..caution hitherto shown by the commanders of the allied forces in the Blaek Sea, baa evidenced a stubborn ness, skill mid courage for which we had hardly given the Russians credit. That Sebastopol would fall there seems little reuson to doubt, that the prize would be gained only at au awful sacrifice-of- life seemed equally clear, And it( is no very satisfactory leflection that'When that for- midable for tress shall have fallen the real gain will be in a great measure confined to the actual canturc. The strength and determination of Russia to carry on the I war is beyond a doubt, and the conquest i of the Crimea so far from terminating the struggle must now be deemed as a step to more extended and sanguinary operations. j Cronstadt and Sveaborg r...

Clie garton jfemuvj? ; MONDAY MORNING, 22N» JAN., 1855. A VERY moderate experience of the new licensing act has been sufficient to disclose its injustice and its folly.

We are therefore not surprised to find the innkeepers commencing a movement which may perhaps tend to, enlighten the framers of the act as to its absurdities, and influence the legislative council to that con- solidation and amendir ent which its provi- sions so imperatively require. One of the most glaring deficiencies in this act, is ilie absence of any provision for an appeal from the decisions of the licensing magistrates ; a deficiency the more striking when contrasted with the right given under the old system of carry...
