VICTORIA. Our advices are to the 19th intsant. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 24 January 1855

VICTORIA. Our lulviccs arc to the 19th intsant. Thirteen prisoners concerned in (lie Ballaarat riots were placed at the bar on the 16th, but from the necessity of comply- ing with legal formalities their trials will not come on until the 26th. The court then proceeded to other cases which as yet present nothing of importance. Akehurst a trooper, charged with the murder of one Powell was acquitted. Mr. David Patton, the foreman of the jury in the Lang and Drake case, has pub- lished a letter in the Argus vindicatory of the verdict given, and if his statement should prove correct the sooner the matter is dropped the better. A new gold field is and to be discovered, and the Argus quotes horn the Ovens and Murray Uiver Advertiser, (a very credit- able local journal by the bye), the follow ng: " "Wo have just received, from private resources, accounts of the discovery of a new gold field in the vicinity of Mount Gibbs. At present we cannot speak with any certainty, but from the nalurcofo...

Sut,-As I believe you are desirous of commit* »¡eating the earliest intelligence to your readers, I beg to inform you ol'a pieee of news in the racing world that has not yet been made known and which I think is of some intciest to the public. This event which is .shor'ly to come off is a hack race between tinco well-known animals for the Sir Henry Young or Government Stakes, the value of which is not yet stated, but must be something considerable. The cntriei are as follows : 1. The aged maro " Cuurier," ridden by'Double Face-the'old maic is a little dozy and not much hopes aie entertained of hen winning-her last run was with Mr. Lowes eolt " Trade Circulai" when she turned out spiteful and bit at eveiybody.

Local News [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 24 January 1855

S oral ¿arto* MUNICIPAL COUNCIL.-We see in the report of the council proceedings a notice of motion that tenders should be called for accompanied by a plan and specification for a bridge accross the creek at Molle-street. Such a motion could only arise from entire ignorance of the ordinary course which experience has proved to be the best in all such matters, and may be pardoned accordingly. Plans and specifications go before tenders, aB necessarily as ploughing and sowing precede harvest j and in- volve in their preparation very distinct and difler ing kinds of knowledge and skill to those required .in the preparation of a mere estimate. It would be just as sensible for the corporation to call for tenders for dialling and copying their intended new municipal act as to ask fir plans and tenders for a bridge from the same person. Mr. Thompson, we suppose, will understand ni, when we-say that the functions of an aichitoct or engineer and those of a builder are very different, and ofte...

The [?]obarton Mercury: WEDNESDAY MORNING, 24TH JAN., 1855 [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 24 January 1855

Cue &*oímtton J&wcttvj? : WEDNESDAY MO ItNING, 24TH JAN., 1855 .ONE of the most common characteristics oí ¿hallow people is a propensity to imitate, unaccompanied by the power to choose either the right time or the right object for imitation. My lady's waiting maid flaunts it in her mistress's cast off dresses ; and my lord's valet, in swaggering importance, apes the " air and manner" of his master. Would be philosophers cackle in the phi ase of Buckland or Faraday ; would be theolo- gians dress their feeble thoughts in the sen- tences of Melville or Chalmers, and, with mouthing pomp of words, seek to conceal the laborious inanity of little minds. These and all such have their admirers, even as the bats are said to listen in ecstacy to the harmony of owls : but, in a young commu- nity, this kind of person is a great nuisance, and a stop gap in the path of improvement and progress, properly so-called. Some such copyist and so-limited faculty must have engendered the d...

HOME INCIDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 26 January 1855

HOME INCIDENTS. The excitement of the war has been kept up even in our amusements. The Crystal Palace Company having resolved to open one day to the benefit cf the wounded soldiers and their widows, the band of the Guides, or Imperial Guard of Louis Napo- leon, were kindly permitted to visit London and such fraternization between the soldiers of once rival countries was seldom seen. The Crystal Palace was besieged by visitors an immense sum being collected ; and the Guides bud the honor of playing at Wind- sor Castle, before her Majesty and the Royal Family. They have since performed upon the terrace of the French Embassy (late Mr. George Hudson's residence), in Hyde Park, and were favoured with splen- did weather, considering we are in foggy November. The band of the Granadier Guaids gave them a dinner and a ball at Hghbury Barn Tavern, and no doubt the compliment will be returned of sending our bands to Paris, to play in aid of subscrip- tions for the French wounded.

TRADE OF THE CRIMEA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 26 January 1855

TRADE OF THE CRIMEA. "Some interest (says the Debatí) will be felt in knowing the nature aud importance of the commercial relations kent up by the Rus- sian province, where the allied armies have already obtained a footing. The following sketch will give some idea on the subject : " Let us first remark that the situation of the Crimea is admirably situated, as it is be- tween the Black Sea and the Sea of Azoff, that is to say, between the Danube on tim west, and the Dnieper on the north, and the Kuban on the east, all grand commercial affluents of the European continent in its eastern portion and of Southern Russia, as likewise of the Caspian basin. No position could be better for carrying on the international transactions of this part of the globe. The Crimea is more, over specially favoured in its interior by the mildness of its climate and by the fertility of a large portion of Us territory, which is suscep. tibie of every culture. In 1835 Air. Schnitzlcr estimated it« extent at ...

THE ADVENT OF SIR WILLIAM DENISON. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 26 January 1855

THE ADVENT OF SIR WILLIAM DENISON. It is expected that 'the next forty eight l hours will bring among us the man who is to be the good or evil genius of the country for many years to come. Sir William Thomas Denison will land on our shores holding her Majesty's commission ( as Governor of New South Wales, and Governor-General of the Australian Colo- nies. The advent of our new ruler opens a wide field of speculation to every reflec- tive mind, and most of all, we can suppose it will be fraught with profound reflections to the mind of his Excellency himself. Rarely, in the colonial history of Great Britain, basa fairer career opened to an able and experienced man, entrusted with power and possessing the moral courage necessary for its upright and beneficial exercise.

TUB FRENCH PART OF THE FIGHT, The son of a gentleman residing in Glou- cester thus describes the storming on the right of the Russian defence :-" We observed the gallant French on the right ' march'steadily along the bench and to the v broad path ascending the hill. We saw the enemy in immense masses with artil- lery, drawn up on the top, over the pass. We saw the French, in irregular order, gradually ascend the pass; the enemy liring heavily on them, but in about half 'an hour's time, the whole of that path and the side of the hill was covered with Frenchmen, as thick as bees, gradually working their way up, and laying on their bellies to fire Splendid was the sight ; and as the gallant fellows edged their way up the hill by these means, the Russians took fear, and wavered. No sooner seen by the French than acted upon, the men sprang on their legs, and rushed up the gorge. The enemy retired precipitately, in most irregular mob fashion. So the ene- my'...

NEW SOUTH WALES. Dar advices are to the 17th.
