HOME INCIDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 31 January 1855

HOME INCIDENTS. The autumn having been unusually fine, our wealthier, and even our middling clas- ses, have made their stay in the provinces longer than usual ; and the Queen has but recently returned from Scotland, having on the way home visited Newcastle (where the late conflagration excited her wannest commiseration and something moro sub* stantiull, .Hull, and Grimsby. The lead- ing tne.nbers of the Cabinet have been fulfilling invitation's likewise, exercising the customary privilege during vacation of talking in an unrestrained English fashion sure to be popular, if not altogether official or exact. Lord Aberdeen, replying to un nddreäi presented by the Corporation of Aberdeen, again asseverated that, although he had earnestly sought lo avoid war, he had fulfilled hi«- pledge in prosecuting it with vigor. Had he been firm at the out- set, I still think ho would have found it easiest to prevent a conflict. Mr. Hume, at the same place, when presented with his freedom, approval 0...

SCRAPS PENNED IN LEISURE MOMENTS. No. 5. HINTS UPON DRESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 5 February 1855

SCRAPS TENNED IN LEISURE MOMENTS. RICHARD LEE, B.A, Follow of the Royal Astronomical Society, Member of the Royal College of Surgeons of England, late Secretary to Uio University Medical hociety, London, &c. &c. Ac. No. 5. HINTS UPON DRESS. In the progress of social existence there are many little matters which attract insufficient notice, and hence are regarded as of trivial importance, purely oh account of their constant connection with the habits and every day ope- rations o' society. It were well if this were in some degree remedied, both on account of the advantage that might accrue to individu tis, and the general benefit to be effected by the alteration. The matter of dress is one of these, though probably some who read Scrap No. 5 will judge this paper and ink might have been employed on a less inglorious topic. True it is too, that with man, the discussion of fit and form in wearing apparel occupies an amount of atten- tion far from cursory or superficial, t...

MAYOR'S COURT. Before His Worship the Mavor and , i Lewis, and- Kilburn, fcsqs. Frida;/, February 26, 1855. Several ratepayers were summoned for non-payment of rates. The eases were disposed of in various ways, according to their several merits, the following only being worthy of notice : Mr. I. G. Reeves was summoned for non-pnymeut of his rates, amounting with tho costs to £4 10s. tid. Ile said that he appeared in answer to a summons to oppose a claim which was founded neither in justice nor in fact, as he was called on to pay for rates for premises which he did not occupy, namely, a house and shop in Elizabeth-street, which were occupied by a tenant of his. Mr. Reeves had paid half a year's rates, but under protest', as he be- lieved the assessors had been guilty of a breach almost of common honesty, by as- sessing two parties for the same premises. There was then present one of the gentle- men appointed to assess the city (Mr. Robb) who had that morning sxamincd the premises, an...

MISCELLANEOUS SHIPPING. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 5 February 1855

MISCELLANEOUS SHIPPING. The Big Ship and a London Square Contrasted.-A bare statement of the dimensions of the large ship which Mr. Scott Russell is just now building scarcely conveys a notion to the majority of minds of its vast size, capacity, and cost. An ingenious friend of ours, Mr. Goold, has   jotted down some points of comparison between the ship and Tavistock square and these serve to make the idea much cleaner. He points out that Tavis   tock-square consists of 58 houses, and that there are 18 houses on one side, of 25 feet frontage, or 450 feet. It would require 9 from the ofher side, or 225 feet, to make the length of the large ship viz., 27 houses or equal to 675 feet. Then the houses being 42 feet deep, it would require two houses put together to make the section of the ship which is 83 feet ; so that it would actually require two houses put together in two rows to make a block the size of the big ship, setting aside the angles cut off in comi...

Tjie lucubrations of the Argita correspon- dent have met with such general reproba- tion, that tliey require no fuilher attention : a man can scarcely well sink lower than to become universally contemptible ; and even the Colonial Times and the Launceston Examiner treat Mr. Milncr's pretensions with a scorn that cannot fail to indicate to him-the Arrow, very narrow, limita of his real importance. We recommend to him the perusal and application of that ancient fable of iEsops-the daw amongst the peacocks--it is apt to his own case, and he cannot fail to benefit thereby; an!, with this, we leave him and his productions to the obscurity which must inevitably become their abiding portion.
