A PICTURE OF TASMANIA BY ONE OF ITS PUBLIC .-SERVANTS. IN the Melbourne Argun, we find the fol- lowing picture of tlie present condition of this colony, from its Hobarton corres- pondent :; " Every father and husband in Tasmania can never forget that all free labor has been kept out of,this colony by the introduction of polluters that his young childi en's ears have had to listen to the most foul and gross conversation-that virtue has been thought in Van Diemen's Land a crime, and crime'(the moie bloodthirsty the better) a vir- tue-that a free, honest, and what would be a respectable member of any other community than ours, is nicknamed as only a " Jimmy Grant ;"and so, not having taken his degree at Newgate, (or some equally renowned university, where it is pos- sible to gain a world's infamy,) is supposed to be inferior to his fellows ;-all this the father recol- lects, and to this he attributes the absence of free immigration to this island,--the greatest blessing a young colony ...

No event has transpired since the termina- tion of the Peninsular War that can be regarded as fraught with so many forces tending to influence the progress of civiliza- tion, as the accumulation of gold from the mines of California and Australia. Nor perhaps will any parallel be drawn from the records of ancient history, by which even those who are most sanguine'in the truth of hypothetical déduction, can satiate their curiosity with a proximate theory as to its, effects upon England and America, not so much as regards their monetary condition, as the advance of liter- ature, and their status in the scale of nt-tlons.

A PICTURE OF TASMANIA BY ONE OF ITS PUBLIC SERVANTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 29 January 1855

A.PICTURE OF TASMANIA ONE OF ITS PUBLIC SERVANTS. As we ' anticipated some sensation was created,by the article utidcr this heading which appeared in our last Friday's issue, and' immediately the facts stated therein carne to the knowledge of some of the committee of the Mechanics' Institute, they initiated active measures to ascertain their accurracy. A special meeting was summoned for this evening, and in the meantime Mr. Cleghorn, one of that body, waited on Mr. Milner to enquire whether there was any real foundation for the state- ments of the Mlrgury. Greatly to his astonishment Mr. Milner not only admit- ted their correctness -but gloried in the avowal, at the same time acquainting his querist that he anticipated what he doubt- less thought would be the due award of the committee, and had sent in his resignation. So far therefore as the Mechanics' Institute are concerned no more remains to be done. But we shall be much surprised if the public or the government will be satisfie...

Commercial Intelligence. SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 29 January 1855

(Sommer ri al intelligente» SYDNEY. The intelligence of1 a cessation of home shipments brought by the Madras, has tended to restore con- fidence and trade indicates symptoms of revival. As yet no alterations had taken place in prices, but an advance on tallow was anticipated. Former quo- tations were still maintained. The timber by the Northern Crown (Ameiiean) had scarcely realized the frieght, except wheie the description was superior, when remunerative returns were obtained. The same remark applies to the timber per Wild Irish .Girl from this port, which was very badly out." The prices ran as follow : 4x3, 9s. 3d. ¡ 5 x 3, 7s. 9d.¡ 6" x 3, IOs. 3d. to 1 Is 3d. j J x 3, and 8 x 3, 8s. ¡ 5x5, 6s. 9d. : 6 x 0, 7s- 6d. ; 6x4, 7s. 6d. per 100; battens, three to a foot, rlOs. 6d. ; paling of a superior quality was fetching far higher prices, and it would seem un- wise to continue an export of timber hence, unless the sawyers will cut fair and true.

Sir William Denison, had arriv- ed. There was a considerable sensation in the city at this information, but it was divided from the interest appertaining to the arrival of the Tasmania, by the appear- ance of another steamer to the southward, which, up to the last moment, many obsti- nate people declared to be the Madras, but which, in accordance with the rules of Colonial Steam Navigation, turned out to be the Hellespont. When tho Tasmania was announced, and more particularly when it was ascertained that Sir William Denison and his family ' were aboard of her, there was no little excitement manifested, and crowds from , nil parts were seen wending their ' way ...
