CHARACTERISTICS OF MORMONISM. (From the Times.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 26 March 1858
CHABACTEBISTICS OF MOrçMONISM. (From the Times.) Ix appears to be the opinion in the United States that the 'Mormons are preparing for another Hegira, if we may judge from some numbers of ÛaDeaeret News which have lately reached us. The expedition against them has f.iilud, indeed, this time, simply because it started too late in the year, or rather was delayed too long in Kansas. In consequence of this procrastination the year had advanced too far, the snqw full, the gras^ failed, with the failure of the grass tije mules dropped off, and ás 'the mules dropped oh?, tlfe supplies dropped' off.' ' The consequence is tlu>£ Colonel Alex- ander, with J.O0Q bayonets and tv/o /jeld batteries, is now encamped in winter quarters on Ham's Fork, 143 miles from the Salt Lake City, waiting for the spring. Colonel Johnston and Colonel Cooke, with 600 more men, have prob fably before now joined him. But though the expedition hat failed this time, it is obvious that 1600 men, reinforced by 4qiibl...

THE LANDING OF THE FILIBUSTERS.—WALKER THE FIRST IN NICARAGUA. (From the New York Herald.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 26 March 1858
THE LANDING OF THE FILI- BUSTERS.-WALKER THE FÍBáT IN NICARAGUA. (From tho New York Herald.) The news of the landing of Walker in j Nicaragua, which we publish this morn , I iug> W'M take by surprise those who have insisted on sending him to the bottom of the Gulf of Mexieo, and it confirms in every point the judgement we have on several occasions expressed recently, after a full examination of the attending cir- cumstances. 'f he bold Filibuster landed on Scott's wharf, at Punta Arenas, opposite Grey town, on the 25th ultimo, with 150 men according to the telegraphic despatch, having landed 50 at the Colorad« mouth of the river, which he tried, as we sup- posed he would, but could not enter. This is a smaller number of men than he was reported to have taken away from Noiv Orleans and Mobile, and there will be much curiosity to know what has be- come of the rest of his forces. The land- ing operation,it seems, was boldly and sue cessfully effected under full view of the United St...

COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE. YESTERDAY'S MARKETS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 27 March 1858
COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE. YESTERDAY'S MARKETS. No activity is visible in the grain market. Wheat is selling at last quota- tion*, 7s. 6d. per bushel, though a very superior sample might realize 7s. 9d. Hie demand for colonial o its is light, and 6s. GJ. is the general quotation, yet 7s. was given yesterday for a first-rate article. English barley is in brisk de- mand at 8=. to Ss. Gd., and Cape also at 6s. G.I. to 7s. 3d., according to sample. Hay moves off readily, loose hay fetching £7 to £8, country pressed, £G 10s. to £7 10s., and hydraulic presold £S to £8 10s. per ton, according to quality. Potatoes ai e still very scarce, and sell at £10 to £12 per ton. i The' enquiry for in ions is rather dull, recent quotations still ruling, £1G to £18 per ton. The flour market continuos quiet. Flour from the best o ilouial wheat realizes £17 to £10 per ton according to quantity. Bran and sharps are in brisk demand, the former at 2s. 3d. to 'li.

THE MARINE CABLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 27 March 1858
THE MARINE CABLE. "Wb believe that the contract for laying down tho Marine Cable from C tpe Grim to Cape Otway which has been broken by Mr. Oppexiieqiee has been taken up by a mercantile firm in this City ol' some thirty years standing. If this be so, as we sincerely hope it is, we can only congratulate the Colony upon the promptitude displayed by the Ministry in this unlooked-for event. Had the Ministry now called for Tenders, a con- siderable delay must have occurred and no adequate good could have resulted. We have all along applauded the go- vernment for the energy they have shown in this matter ; and we cannot but think that were they now to abandon their original plan by inviting tenders they would condemn the plan they pre- viously adopted. Should our informa- tion be correct a latge proportion of the contract money will be espended here, and the work carried out by one of our- selves. "Wo are not at liberty to men- tion the name of the firm which has undertaken to perform th...

A TRIBUTE TO THE MEMORIES OF NICHOLSON AND NEILL. (From the Times.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 27 March 1858
A TRIBUTE TO THE MEMORIES OF NICHOLSON AND NEILL. (Frum the Times.) It was an extreme thing to say that next to a defeat a victory was the most melancholy event in the world ; yet, as wb turn a victory over, and roll it round and round in mind, we becoir.Q aware that, like most thins» in nature, it bai its light and dark side. A maniage and a funeral have some features and produce , some impressions in common ; they both call up the irrevocable past; both ara partings ; both are ends of one state of things and beginnings of another : both are mementos, srz!ials,and warning notes of time; both remind us of cha~ins,past and to co.ne, in the social circle ; bjth impart regrets ; both produce solemnity; and both, in their own way, lift up the veil of the future, and direct the look to that dim horizon beyond which no eye can pierce. We will do the English justice to say tint of the" millions who have read the news of the victories of Delhi and Lucknow there is not one bnt has paused in ...
