ANCIENT AND MODERN ENGINEERING. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 25 March 1858

ANCIENT AND MODERN ENGI NEERING. The shareholders of the Leviathan are patient men. To be sure, they cannot help themselves now ; they are embarked in a struggle with that gre.itest and most portentous power in nature-the »is inertias,which they must cat ry out. It is another form of the siege of Sebastopol. Bui the siege ol Sibistopol itself has not, after all, the naked dignity of a war with simple ton- nage-that primordial and ancient power which existed before the Cyclops, before the Pelasgi, before the very giants who hurled Pelion and Ossa at the Gods. And in proportion to the dignity of the contest is the patience which it de nands. There are those shareholders of the Leviathan standing round in solemn silence, witnessing an awful silent contest ; they feel the con- sciousness of tremendous forces at work, of pressure and weight in dreadful antagonism, like two strong opposing wills ; of a mighty contest of which they see the outside in the shape of tim- bers, hydraulic engin...

COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE. YESTERDAY'S MARKETS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 26 March 1858

COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE. YESTERDAY'S MARKETS. Very little doing in the grain market to-day. Wheat is not so firm and very few. sales have been made lately at a higher figure than 7s. 6d. per bushel. The enquiry for colonial oats is very trifling just now and 6s. Gd. is the ruling quotation. Barley is in good demand, especially English, which is firm at 8s. to 8s. 60., Cape fetches from 6s. 6d. to 7s. 3d., according to sample. Hay com- mands a ready sale, loose hay ranging from £7 to £8, country pressed from £6 10s. to £7 10s., and hydraulic pressed from £8 to $8 JOs. per ton according to quality. Potatoes are quoted at £10 to £12, and onions at £16 to £18 per ton. The flour market is especially dull, but previous quotations still rule. Flour from the best colonial wheat sells at £17 to £19 per ton according to quantity, Bran and sharps are in good demand,the former at 2s. 3d. to 2s. Gd, per bushel, and the latter at £10 to £12 per ton. Messrs. Brent and Westbrook sold on Tuesday las...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. Wk do not identify our opinions with those of our Correspondents. To tho Editor of the Jtai'y Mercury. Sin.-I am not generally disposed to com- pliment a journalist upon his merit as a Utilitarian, but when I see a paper really devoted-I use the term emphatically to the public interests, I am induced to emerge from my usual slothful habits, and communicate a bit of my mind to you, in reference to what you have caused to be done in the way of utility. My recollection will not carry me very far back, but I think I am correct in stating, that to your exertions and advice the public are in a great measure indebted for the rejection of the proposed Masters' and Servants' Act in its con- templated objectionable form, while very recently wo have to thank you for the restoration of the Post Messenger bi- weekly to the Huon, and for a proper publicity having been given by the Re- turning Officer, Mr. Tarleton, to issue writs for the election of Members of Parliament....

RICHMOND BRANCH ASSOCIA- TION IN CONNECTION WITH THE HOBART TOWN AUXILI- ARY BIBLE SOCIETY. Tho annual meeting of this Branch Association was held ni the Riohniond School Room on Tuesday evening, the 23rd inst, at 7 o'clock. The Rev. Thomas Dug.ill was called to the chair. He observed that a depu- tation from the Parent Society had visited the Australian Colonies, two years ago, whose object was to assimi- late the working ol the Society here as much as possible to that ot the varied instrumentality at work in Great Britain. One great object of the deputation was to establish Branch Associations in the different Townships and distiicts of the Island. Mr. Dugall moved the first resolution, expressive oi the duty of Christians, to disseminate the sacred volume far and wide. This resolution was seconded by Mr. Hardinge of Glen Ayr. The second resolution, which was ex- pressive of the wide field of the Society's operations, called up Mr. Dear, the Agent pf the Hobart Town Auxiliary Soci...

SIR JAMES BROOKE AND BORNEO. (From the Leader.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 26 March 1858

SIR JAMES BROOKE AND BORNEO. (From the Leader.) f.0 I Sir James Brooke is once more in 'le this country. His territory of Sarawak, after the Chinese outbreaks, immediately recovered itself, atid is now so perfectly in the hands of its administrators that the Rajah was enabled to leave at a few days' notice. We think that tim gran- deur of the work thus accomplished in the East by an Englishman is scarcely appreciated in Europe. Hoi lin.; three distinct populations under hi i rule, and possessing as an armed force tho most miniature battalions possible, Sir Jumes Brooke may now be said to rule over at least a quarter of u million of souls, for in addition to the Sarawak provinces, several contiguous river territories ac- knowledge him as their arbitrator, if not their master. At one of these stutions a young kinsman of the Rajah acts as his representative, and maintains law and order among a hundred thousand persons ; he has a fort, uf course, lightly mounted with guns, and could sta...

THE WASTE LANDS ACT. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 26 March 1858

THE WASTE LANDS ACT. Some misunderstanding still exists as to the application of the 19th Section of j the Waste Lands Act. The remarks made by up in our issue of yesterday have induced a request that we would J give th# operation ' of that Clause still further publicity in order'ty remoye the ignorance which prevails regarding j it, #9 lwfttà»» leTeaty ton>»ppUc> tions have been made to purchase land under the provisions of the 19th Clause ; and we feel convinced, when it is rightly understood, that that number will be in- finitely augmented. If our contempo- raries will assist us in giving publicity to the advantages offered by it, they will confer a benefit upor. the colony and upon those who are at present unaware of its existence. By the 19th Section any person de- positing with the Commissioner the ex- pense of Survey, may have the right of selecting for purchase by Private Con' tract, at one pound an acre, any one block of land not exceeding three hun- dred and twenty a...

.THE MERCURY PBIDAY, MAKCH 26rn. 1858. .Btjssia is at bor old tricks. The en - croachiag spirit of Nie hol is has de ' ' icended upon Alexandeb as well as 1 bia Crown. To place a limit to the ambition of tlio Czar seems impossible. -!, The np over the knuckles administered to Bussia in the Crimea for her un* quancbable désira to crawl into the ter '.' ritory of her neighbours seems to have exercised buta very evanescent inflo» ence upon her. .' No man's pic is free ' ' from her ambitious fingers." The last gentle hint not to meddle with Turkey compelled her to draw in her horns for ? time ; but now she is again creeping i from her Bhell and pushing her way onwards upon the banks of the Amoor. Alexanbeb, like Nicholas, will never be satisfied with three parts of the 1 -globe while there exists the remotest chance of his compassing the other ; fourth.

SOCIAL TEA MEETING. RICHMOND. A goodly number of friends belonging to the Independent Chapel, Richmond, met together in the Chapel on Tuesday evening last, the 23rd instant, to spend an hour in religious converse over a so- cial cup of tea. Mr. Dear, the agent of the Hobart Town Auxiliary Bible Society, was called to the chair. Mr. Black, a member of the congre- gation, introduced the proper business of the evening, which was to present Mr. Blackwood, the Independent missionary of the Cambridge and Richmond dis- tricts, with a handsome saddle and bridle, as a tribute of gratitude for the zealous and devoted manner in which he (Mr. Blackwood) had discharged his sacred duties among them. Mr. Black said   that the gift had emanated from a few settlers in the bush, who were deeply impressed with the obligations under which they were placed to Mr. Black- wood, for the kind and christian interest which he had taken in the spiritual wel- fare of themselves and families.
