LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 5 June 1857

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. Coloïïiai Wines.-We have often been surprised at the apathy evinced by the colonists in regald to the making of wines, the means and fa- cilities for which are so abundant. There is no country in this part of the world so luxuriant for British fruit as 'Tasmania, its soil and climate being remarkably adapted for their cultivation and ripe growth, and as the crops are annually increasing, we hope to see them applied to some enduring purpose. We are aware that a few individuals have applied a portion of their fruit to wine making, but they are few and far between, and the wines made, are for the most part, used only by thtir own families. Mr. W. Russell, however, of Sandy Bay« has removed this reproach from our settlers, and lias favoured us with a sample of wines, man fact tired by himself, and intended for sale : they consist of cherry, raspberry, black currant and elderberry, and are of excellent flavour, and good body. The raspberry, especially is a delicious w...

THE MUTINEERS OF THE BOUNTY. (From Mitchell's Maritime Register.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 5 June 1857

THE MUTINEERS OF THE BOUNTY. (From Mitchell's Maritime Register.) There is not a community owing allegiance to the British Crown which, tor its extent, has attracted so much attention and enlisted so large a share of the sympathies of the Brit« ish public as those descendants of the Mu» tineor8 of the Bounty, who but lately, for nearly seventy years, inhabited a solitary island in the fur Pacific, and lived iu their distant home in the practice of all the virtues which adora the Christian character. The affectionate regard entertained by these sim plo-minded peoplo for their countrymen who visited them from timo to timo is not the least interesting trait they possess. In no one instance, to the honour of our sailors, had that feeling been taken advantage of, or the unsuspecting confidence of tho colonists bceu betrayed. What the Pitcairn Islanders were when ihey were visited for tho first timo in 1314 they are to day ; and it is only to be feared that the change which haj boon re« c...

THE MERCURY. lluult'sfjrti iSJonbaji, EUcpiuauan; aJFrfoao FBIDAÏ MORLING. JUNE, 5in, 1857. WnEK men perform extraordinary acts, at ex- traordinary times, very little penetration is requisite to discover their motives. We have no wish to throw cold water, unnecessarily upon the zeal of any mau, and so long as no injustice is contemplated, or the public in- terests are not imperilled, any individual may bolster up a waning notoriety after his own fashion without receiving from us either mo- lestation or obstruction. There are some men who really like to bo imposed upon-they have a fondness for it-especially when their vanity is flattered ; and they will cling with a superhuman tenacity to the imposition rather than acknowledgethat they have been deceived. This has happened so repeatedly amongst our- selves as to Tender any attempt at establishing its truth a work of supererogation. Nearly 12 months have elapsed since the somewhat dilapidated but congenial drapery of the Amphitheatre ...

RATHER STARTLING. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 8 June 1857

RATHER STARTLING. Tira decision of the Commissioner in tho case Menzie v. Tabieton ropoited in another column, will startle many. By the old Court of Requests Act (6thfVict. No. 9) the power of arrest under £20 was granted This power was expressly taken à\vay,ho\vever, by the 9th Viet. No. 4 ; but-by some strange and unac- countable oversight-it was again revived by the 10th Viet. No. 10. The last Clauso of this Act sets forth «" that the 6th Viet. No. 9 (tho old Court of Requests "Act) is to be read with that Act (16th Viet. No. 10) as one Act -THE BAME A3 TE IT HA» BEEN BE-ENAOTED IN THAT Act." , It is to bo regretted that this error was not discovered before the parliament left sitting,as it could have been then easily reclined.

A criminal prosepiitjon for libel has been commenced by Mr. Thomas Gxobgkb Geso 80K, gainst Messrs H. n&d C IJsbt, proprie* tors of the Courier, for an alleged libel upon him, contained in an article pu.blish.cd in that Journal on the 13th May. The case comes on for hearing at the Police Office next Thurs- day. It is deeply to be regretted that Lord Campbell's Now Act does not extend to this Colony, so that by its provisons a defendant might justify himself on the plea that the alleged libel had been published honàfide for the advahtago of the community at large. It is also to be regretted that the defendants should havo been shut out from a plea of just tifieation.
