SMITH O'BRIEN ON SELFRELIANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 23 March 1858

SMITH O'BRIEN ON SELB'. RELIANCE. Mr. W. S. O'Briou made his first appearance as a public lecturer before the Limerick Mechanics' Institute ; and right well did Mr O'Brien dischargo tbe duty which devolved upou him as the speaker of the inaugural address for the session of 18-58. His remarks upon the» various topics which he brought under the notice of his audience were mostly; characterised by sound sense, and by an avo i dance of till reference to the Utopian schemes which hitherto formed the staple stock of those patriots who had traded extensively u.ion Irish grievances and their reme:ly. Self-reliance, in Mr O'Brien's view.ahould he the beginning of the moral revolution which would, raise Ireland from a state of mere pro- vincialism. " Instead," ho justly re-, marked, " of considering what we carn do for ourselves, wo ure always inclined, to inquire what can others do fur us?" Aud by way of illustration 1)3 ob- serves : " I shall add only one w ird mare, by wiy of exhortation t...

THE MERCURY TUESDAY, MARCH 23RD. 1858. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 23 March 1858

THE MEßCURY TUESDAY, MARCH 23hd. 1858. The Assessors of property within the ¿lew city boundaries have managed, in the discharge of their duties, to got up a larger amount of excitement than we ? remember to have) witnessed for some 'time. Go where we will wo hear noth- ing but one eternal complaint. Charges of the most serious nature are levelled against those gentlemen indiscrimi natély ; charges of wilful favoritism and groas blundering. Our Citizens tmy be Boen running here and there willi the 3 Assessment Boll in their hands pointing out to others what they term the mani- fest injustice and palpable inequality be- tween the amount of assessment on various buildings. One shopkeeper, who has but one roora over his shop, has been set down at a rental of hnlf as much again as his next door neighbour whose premises are infinitely superior and three times as extensive.

COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE. YESTERDAY'S MARKETS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 23 March 1858

COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE. YKSTERDAY'S MARKETS. . Business continues very slack in the grain market, but prices have undergone no altera- tion. Wheat was sold to-day at 7s Gd to 7s Od per bushel, but the latter figure was oblainod only for a very suporior sample. The enquiry for colonial oats is very trifling at present prices, fis 6d to 7s. Barley is quickly disposed of whon it comos into the market, Capo fetching from Gs fid to 7s 3d, and English 7s 0.1 to 8s C1, ac- cording to sample. Hay moves off steadily at previous quotations, looso hay realizing from £0 10s to £8 according to quality, country pressed from £6 10s to £7 10s, and hydraulic pressed from £8 to £0 per ton. Potatoes fetch £10 to £12 per ton, according to sample, but very littlo is doing nt present. Onions have again gouo up, and sales were effected to-day at £16 to £18 per ton. Very little movement is perceptible in the flour market. Flour from Hie best colonial wheat still realizes £17 to £19 per ton, accord- ing to...

THE ELECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 23 March 1858

TUE ELECTIONS. Whilst we are called upon to congratu- late the country upon the return of Mr. Gell for the South Esk, we have at the same time to lament the degradation to Which the District of Clarence has willingly submitted itself. Mr.EDWABD Abbott has been re-elected. Need we Bay more 1 If the Electors of Clarence prefer being represented by a half-crazed pauper we'can have no right to qu. rrel with their taste, albeit we do not admire it. Fellow-feeling makes us wflradrous kind ; and, in this instance, tho reful- gence of Mr. Abbott's mental superi- ority has been reflected back upon his constituents with a vengeance. We give them joy of their choice. Now that we are beginning to discover in what direction the predilections of the people . point, we think it might better our . future condition amusingly if we estab- lished Colleges for Candidates, and took our students from the paupers at Im ' pression Bay and the lunatics at the New Norfolk madhouse- In the estimates next ' ye...

OVERTRADING" DEFINED. (From the Times.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 23 March 1858

OVERTRADING" DEFINED. (From the Times.) How was it, in all this business, that so much capital could be found for deal- ings of a speculative description, and how came it about that in so many in- stances and to such a yreat extent the ordinary terms of moncy-leuding were altered, and high interests with large risks made the rule rather than the ex- ception ? The answer can be given iu a dozen words. Joint-stock banks are conducted on the principle of unlimited liability. Every shareholder is liable to every creditor of the bank to his last acre and his last shilling ; and, as the list of shareholders usually contains many wealthy persons, the security given by the couccrn is conceived lo be ' all ?but perfect. When, therefore, a joint-stock bank offers to receive money upon terms, the bargain presented to the eyes of the public is extraordinarily advantageous, for there is large inter- est without largo iisk, :i plentiful re- turn, and yet undoubted security. Iu Btead of lending £1...

ANADDRh'SSTOTlíE WORKING j CLASSES ON T3E STATE OB' THE TIMES. , (From the Loudon, Tims3.) It is'difficult to speak to people dis- tressed and hunger-stricken, of whom the nutnber is, we fear, inereistu *, be- cause thora is one argument which uature appears to put in their mouths as an answer to any word of au siiviser -" You aro' not ia our ewe." This is a natural ar »uraaut. We do nob say that it is a deep one, or even a reason- able or a Bensiblo one, but it is un- doubtedly a natural o'ie.
