LATEST FROM VICTORIA. I. (Bï ElECTBIO TEIiEOEAPH.) Launceston, 24th March, 1858. (From our own Correspondent.)

ANECDOTES OF HAVELOCK. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 25 March 1858

ANECDOTES OF HAVELOCK. Very little is known of Havelock's eirly life. We have heard a story about his boyhood, for which we cannot vouch, but which is so characteristic of the future hero of Lucknow, that we give it as it has reached us. It remind-* ? us of the well-known story of Nelson, ' as given by'Southey in his life of that gillant admiral. When about seven or eight years of age, he climbed a high - tree in scare'i of a bird's nest, and full to t'.ie ground the moment that ha had gained his prize. As soon as he recov. area consciousness, his fathor asked him whether he wat not frightened when the branch snapped. " No," said the little fellow, " I did not think of being fright. coed ; I had too mucli to do in thinking of the eggs, for I was sure they would be smashed to pieces." Another anec iatff is told illustrative of his cool juidgnwot, calculation, and forethought. When Ahout 12 years old, he saw a dog worrying has ftthcr's sheep at Ingress Park. Instead of testing the bru...

THE POTATO CROPS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 25 March 1858

THE POTATO CROPS. Tiirs vegetable is likely to be in great demand in the Colonies, and we would j call the serious attention of those who make it a custom to apply them to other purposes than that of human food to the | great scarcity which is likely lo prevail in the other colonies through the failure of tbe crops. By the ¡Sydney papers we learn that tne potato crop in the various districts of that Colony is said to have almost universally failed, whilst the I wheat crop in many districts is also i stated to be very deficient. There can | be no doubt that this failure will create a demand upon this Colony ; and although our own crops, we regret to say, are by j no means so abundant as we could have I desired, still we shall bo in a position, we have no doubt, to supply to a. con- siderable extent the deficiency which will í thus be created. The year before last a j large quantity pf potatoes was allowed to perish in the soil and was thrown to | the pigs, the price ruling in the mar...

THE EARTHQUAKE AT NAPLES. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 25 March 1858

I THE EARTHQUAKE AT NAPLES. It is stated that if the movement of the earthquake in Naples had been in a contrary direction-that is to say, per- pendicular instead of lateral, a rising and sinking instead of a rocking to and fro the capital would have b¿en converted into a heap of ruins. The proverb which says that it is an ill wind that blows nobody good, was never more strongly exemplified than in the case ol' this earthquake. One mijht suppose it difficult that such a calamitous convul- sion of nature should bring benefit to any ela«, but we leam that it has filled the pockets of the barbers of Naples. The Neapolitans are in the habit, when anything occurs to shock or terrify them, of getting themselves bled. I am ignorant in what this curious custom originated-whether those who persevere in it can assign for it a plausible reason ; but it is certain that after a violent emotion most Neapolitans would consider themselves in peril if they had not im- mediate recourse to phlebotomy....

THE NEW LAND BILL. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 25 March 1858

THE NEW LAND BILL. Those of our readers who have studied our new Land Bill will not be surprised to learn that large nu-nbers of people are beginning to avail themselves of its provisions. We have done our best to spread far and- wide the advantages offered by the Waste Lands and the Unsettled LandsActs, and it is no small satisfaction to kuo.v that as those ad vantages become known they receive a practical appreciation. A Member of the South Australian Législature, who has made himself acquainted with the provisions of these enlightened mea- sures, has expressed to a Member of our own Parliament his opinion that the Tasmanian Land Scheme was by far tlie most liberal and by far the best adapted to achieve the great aim of legis- lation in reference to the Waste Lands, of any measure hitherto passed in the Cobnies. That our Land Scheme should have been sneered at by our Melbourne contemporaries was nothing but what we might expect at their hauds. They cauuot deny the " quan- tity" of...

MISCELLANEOUS SHIPPING. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 25 March 1858

MISCELLANEOUS SHIPPING. A Moobi Clitpeb.-There is now on the eve of being launched at Cumberland Ironworks, Bristol, a ship of 1,300 tons, built expressly for the eminent Arm of Milner and Kington, of Bristol and Melbourne, to be employed by them JhjthsAwrtriuiwtrtde, TlàiaippoiMMia a peculiar degree all the qualities necessary for a transport. She is built, firstly, to sail st a high velocity, and at the same time is fitted with Hydo'« patent enclosed screw. This screw is so arranged that it offen no impediment to the ship when under canvas, and ia enclosed within tho run of tho ship by means of two sliding plates or shutters, tbe screw being keyed on the shaft as* in ordinary cases, it cannot, therefore, be subject to the accidents and wear of a lifting or feathering screw, and is pronounced by prac- tical mariners to be the very thing wanted for a long voyago. She can stow, besides 1,000 tons of cargo, coals enough for the voyage to India and back, assuming one-third of the run t...

We have heard rumours as to the cau=ie of this which, however, we decline stating, until we hear them cor- roborated. The Bond ha* been des- troyed, the Contractor forlciting £1000 for the non-fulfilment of the contract, which money was deposited in the Trea- sury. The Government have nothing for it now but to call at once for tenders, and see that the work is carried out in the spirited manner in which it was commenced. No time must be lost if it b3 intended that the Cable be laid dow n the ensiling summer.

An alarm of fire was given on Sunday morning. A large heap of Mersey coals in Scott's Market had ignited, and set fire to a stack of firewood adjoining The engines were quickly in attendance but not required, as the hose was attached to the fire plug and the force of water alone almost immediately ex- tinguished the flames.

THE MERCURY THURSDAY, MARCH 25TH, 1858. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 25 March 1858

THE MERCURY THURSDAY, MABCH 25th, 1858. The elections for Clarence and Cam- bridge arc now numbered amongst the events of the past, and we have no de- sire to snatch them from the oblivion into'which they are hastening. After elections have terminated, wo do not consider that tho candidates who have teen defeated, or the electors who sup- ported those candidates, have any right to(question tho decision of the majority, whatever their own opinions may be re- garding its wisdom. The elector whose candidate has been defeated has the same right to form a judgment of the relativo qualifications of the various can '¡dates as the elector whose favourite as been successful; but, having exer- cised that right, he is bound to abide by the decision, of a majority of the electors. And so with these elections.

BRITISH INDIA[?] (From the Athen[?]um.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 25 March 1858

BRITISH INDIA.* (From the Athenäum.) Insurrection-massacre-civil war_ storm and siege, shot and shell-have set us thinking on India. But the iden! East is the ideal East still. A golden light of poetry floats above the ancient groves and religious temples of the Gauges. A mist curls up the slopes ol the Himalayas and settles on the fat rice plains of Bengal. Havildars and Zemindars are still the people of our dreams-not moro real than the figures of "The Arabian Night*,"or the voices in "The Tempest." Will India ever grow into a country of returns, blue books, statistics, and exact knowledge ? Though four years have scarcely elapse 1 since the great Indian debute.-, the same mistakes are made, oven hy our senators, regarding the government of India, that were then exploded on evidence duly recorded, and now accessible to all. How many of the speakers at the numerous meetings on the Indian question which have been lately held have spoken of the Directors as actuated rather by the wis...

REPRESENTATIVE REFORM. (From the "Economist.") [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 25 March 1858

REPRESENTATIVE REFORM. l' (From the " Economist.") The only purpose of reforming the con. stituencies, when there is no urgent de- mand for such a measure, is that we may act moro freely and deliberate more care- fully than we could do under the pres- sure of an over-mistering current of conviction,-that we may teach the country what is desirable, instead of merely conceding, to a matured and de- termined popular opinion, the least that it will accept. We have, therefore, at prjsent no ex- cuse for drifting before an undefined cur- rent of liberal feeling. It is a time when we need not merely as'c what English opinion will bear ; there is room for much more-nay, much more than this is ex- pected of legislators and of public men. English opinion is at present very much undefined, and anxious to listen and judge. It has no clear, sharp course, es yet. It will biar much modification in many ways. It is not yet ready to be shaped into a practical scheme. There is ample room for modifyin...
