THIS HON. GENTLEMAN OF THE TURF AND THE STREET-SWEEPER. (From the London Examiner.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 10 June 1857

THIS HON. GENTLEMAN OF THE TURF AND THE STREET-SWEEPER. (From the London Examiner.) Tho plisses of the Honorable Mr. Lawley's appearance before the public arc not a little curious. Three years ago he was recoin» mended to the Queen us u pieper person to fill a governorship in Australia. The selec- tion was approved by her Majesty, but the propriety of the appointment wns questioned in the House of Commons, on the ground timk, Mr. Lawley, as a private secretary to the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Air. Gladstone,, turned his opportunities of obtaining infor- mation to stock-jobbing account. Out then carno tho history of the appointment to the governorship, and it appeared that Mr. Lawley had been recommended by the duke of Newcastlo to Sir Georgo Grey as a fitting person to go vein a colony simply on the ground that he was a man on the turf. Tho business of betting and jockeying was, it seems, a special qualification for colonial government. But, unluckily, the fact that Mr. Lawley ha...

OLDEN PARIS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 10 June 1857

OLDEN PARIS. An architectural critic in one of the papers has recently been pleased to express his dis- approbation of tiie late improvements and his regret that old Paris should have disappeared. Those who are capable of forming an idea of what the city really was, and not as it has been described in popular romances, aro far from sharing this disapprobation aud regret. One of the most learned in the archaslogy and history of Paris, and one of the most agree- able and spirituel writers of the French press (M. Edouard Thierry), thus described the city as it was 200 years ago, and which we are told to regret :-' "Reconstruct in imagination that sombre Paris of the 17th century, into width liyht lus nt last penetrated during our time ; those narrow streets, sheltering thieves ; those walls, decayed by the damp arising from the streets ; those extremely filthy gutten", reeking with wann and sickening streams from the neigh- bouring furrier or dyer ; t'-iose shops of doubtful character,...

Ix is much against our inclination at all times to bolster up the waning notoriety of oui' Mel- ville Street contemporary by alluding to it in our columns. We have all along held the hireling writers of that journal in the most profound contempt, nor should we, on the present occasion, do violence to our feelings by adverting to them, did they not speak "on the authority of Mb. GitEasou." With the sjlf-nominated "proprietor," and his miserable adjunct-men who have sold their independence for a mess of pottage-we have nothing to do. It is even beneath our dignity to deal out the castigation, their own shameless con duot invites. They are hut the servants cf others, and must obey their superiors. Like political weather-cocks they note the changes in the tortuous course pursued by those upon whom they are dependent for their daily bread, and, in that capacity, they are useful. ...

POLICE OFFICE.—MONDAY. Before F. Burgess, Esq. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 10 June 1857

POLICE OFFICE.-MONDAY.   Before F. Burgess, Esq. Night Charges.-Patrick White was char- ged with being an idle and disorderly person and   with being on the premises of the Rev. R. Clarke for an unlawful purpose. The consta- ble (Johnson) gave his evidence on this, as on other occasions, in a most round-about way. He could not tell whether the man was in an enclosure or not. The prisoner was laboring under delirium tremens and seemed half stupid. He was discharged with an admonition. A man named Stephen Bene was charged with assaulting serjeant Reynolds in the execution of his duty. Witnesses were called on both sides, and the Bench after weighing the evi- dence adduced found the prisoner guilty, but discharged him with a reprimand and a caution. Another man named John Walton was char- ged with assaulting constable Carey whilst in the execution of his duty, and with having, in the most ruthless manner, threatened to take his life, for which he (Carey) had d...

Business is not what it used to be, and is get- ting from bad to worse. Gentlemen, we have not escaped the curse of the age, which they call an age of improvement-odd rot it I I should like to know what is improved.
