WHITE SLAVERY. (From the Times.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 3 June 1857

WHITE SLAVERY. (From the Tlme3.) The sword lias slain its hecatombs-so has the lancet j but we doubt if these may not be equalled in number by the palo cohorts of the needle, who are now ilitting hither and thither in the twilight of the silent world. It is a terrible incident of our social existence that the resources for gaining a livelihood left open to women are so few. Stiugglo as they will with the exception of those who may be cm ployed in factories-it is with them, stitch stitch-stitch. From gray morning to dusky eve, and far on, too, into the cheerless night, the poor seamstress plies her allotted task, too thankful if she can save herself from pollution and from pinching hunger hy hor incessant and monotonous toil. To bo sure, there arc thousands upon thousands of poor women throughout tho country who have taken upon thomselves the office of wife and mother with- out much prospect of being ablo to find raiment, shelter, and food for themselves, and for the miserable creatu...

MINISTERIAL STATEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 3 June 1857

MINISTERIAL STATEMENT. At a grand banquet given by the Lord Mayor of London, Lord Palmerston thus re- plied to the toast of "Her Majesty's Minis- ters :" My Lord Mayor-Often as it has been the good fortuue of Her Majesty's Ministers to partake of the splendid hospitality of the City of London, never certainly has it fallen to the lot of any Administration to receive such testimonies upon so important and in- teresting an occasion as the present. We find in the reception which you have given us tiie same expression of confidence and good- will towards her Majesty's Government which I had the honour to receive from your lord- ship's hands not many days ago, as evincing the feelings and sentiments of the citizens of this great metropolis. (Cheers.) We were, aB it is well known, not long ago placed .in a minority in the House of Commons, upon a question which involved a censure upon the Government.

SUPREME COURT.-YESTERDAY CniMINAIi SITTINGS. Before His Honor Mr. Justice Horne. The Solicitor-General conducted the prose- cutions. . John Sewel was capitally charged with an unnatural crime with a boy named Nathan Stanton, on the 25th of December last at Port Cygnet. The prisoner was undefended. The Solicitor-General in addressing the Jury, observed, that in a case so revolting, if he consulted their feelings, and the feelings of those in court, he should endeavour to hide the circumstances, hut as the life of the pri- soner at the bar was involved in the investi- gation it would not he proper to conceal them ; he should, however, content himself with a bare recital of the facts, and as the hoy would ho placed in the witness box, they would hear his testimony : he would, also, mention, that a witness named Thorpe, would be examined, and he would detail to them certain facts which ho saw. It appeared that Thorpe was walking along the road, when his attention was attracted by a dog,...

NEW NORFOLK For some time past various complaints have reached us, by letter and oral information, of the tyranny and annoyance exercised by the Police at New Norfolk, and, determiuod to judge for ourselves, wc proceeded thither on Monday, and, now, place before the public theicsult of our visit. The following case was investigated at the Police Office in our presence. A niau named Render preferred a complaint against Constable Shceiing for mis- conduct in being drunk on duty. It came out in the evidence, that the constable had ap- prehended Render a few nights before, on a charge of drunkenness, when it was proved, that he was sober : the facts were os follow : -the complainant was walking home, and had just shaken hands with a iiicnd, when he was taken into custody by the Constable.

The withdrawal of the Waste 'Lands Sales Act [No. 41] is a good omen, and, the reason assigned for its withdrawal, a still better one. The Attobnev-Genehal frankly acknow- ledged the existence of a disrelish in the minds of many lion. Members to pass any exception- al measure relating to the Waste Lands. The question, in all its bearings will have to be discusseJ ere long ; and we are,on that account as strongly opposed as the Assembly itself, to any attempt at patching up a "system alike wrong in principle, untenable in theory, dis proportioned in feature, and unstable in its foundation. The whole fabric will have to be swept away eventually,and wo can see no uti- lity, therefore, in endeavouring, by fictitious aids, to save itfronvih'at eureless ruin which is not only inevitable, but to which it is fast hastening.

The fact ia that, Mr. Mc'Laren is about to change the brand by manufacturing the same article on his own account, it has become expedient for the rival Firm to refuse him his due : however, tho Public will soon decide as to the relativo merits of the two establish menta.

LATEE FROM VICTORIA. We are indebtad to Mr. James, who arrived by the coach last night, for the Melbourne Herald of Tuesday. We can find hut little matter of public interest, and the only item of '?'commercial news íb the following : The import markets have not Bhown much animation to-day, and we are unable to record any alteration in price. In allusion to the re-opening of our House of Assembly, our contemporary has the fol- lowing remarks :- i The first night of the renewal of the session was not allowed to pass without the occurrence of one of thofie unseemly Drawls which have already brought contempt upon the Tasmanian Legislature. Modtrn playwrights know that works of the highest merit often furnish the Tery best materials for a burlesque. Fortu- nately Parliamentary Government eau survive the travestie which is being played in Tas- mania.

PROROGATION. I The Parliament will be prorogued this day at 3 o'clock by His Excellency in person,and (mu will terminate the first Session of Responsible Government in Tasmania. It has been a remarkable one, and one which will furui-th us with matter for much serious thought for a long time to come. We believo the contem- plation oi what has beau done, and of what has been left undone, may bs followed with good results. If we eau derive any wisdom Irom it we may as well secure it,seeing tint it will be about the only good wo are likely to obtain. The present Administration will now have ample time to mature their mojsures,or rather the measures of tho Country. Their duty although arduous is extremely simple. That its members will set themselves to the perfor- mance of those duties with zeal and perseve- rance we feel convinced.

NEW NORFOLK. The disclosures revealed by U3, in our last issue, relative to the conduct of the Now Noifolk Police, have, we are happy to say, commanded the attention of the authorities ; aud, we have the assurance of Mr. Buegess, given from his placo in Parliament, that the most searching investigation will be imme- diately instituted intothoallegations contained in our article. A public journalist can have no object in mis-stating facts of this nature when brought under bis'coanisance ; and, it is gra- tifying to, him, at" all times, to find that his labors, on behalf of tho public, aro not' allowed to pass' unheeded and unproductive. The matter, relating to the Police at New Norfolk, was brought. under our notice by several correspondents, and it began to assume a very serious aspect. Without, in any way, howover,irapugning the veracity of the state meats forwarded to us, we thought it advisable -and equitable to those implicated-to en- quire personally into the circumstances; a m...

THE CHINESE INSURRECTION AT SARAWAK. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 5 June 1857

THE CHINESE INSURRECTION AT SARAWAK. . On looking over our Singapore files, we find the following account of the diabolical outrage upon the Europeans at Sarawak, that led to the expedition referred to in the acco- unts given yesterday : On Tuesday last we issued an Extra, givi- ng an outline of tho recent outrages commit- ted by the Chinese at Sarawak, particulars of which were brought from that place by the schooner Good Luck, which sailed on the 2lst ultimo, and arrived on the 10th instant. Al- though rumours had been current that the Kungsi contemplated resisting the authority of the local government, the latter appear to have treated the matter with indifference. Suddenly, however,, a larga body, numbering about 200 Chinese, came down the river on and before the I7th February, and at mid- night commenced a most determined attack on the government people and property. They first secured possession of the two forts, one bolow and the other above the town of Kuchin(the seat of Raj...
