PORT CYGNET, HUON. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 9 February 1855

PORT CYGNET, HUON. (iVom our own Correspondent,) On Saturday, the 3rd instant, the long talked of communication between this place and North-west Bay was set at rest by the airiyal of D. C. Beres- ford, accompanied by Messrs. Groombridge, Mere- dith, and party. Mr. Beresford, having occasion to visit this district on olficial business, and being desirous of deciding the much-disputed question whether a good road could be found to connect North-west Bay with Port Cygnet, started in com- pany with Mpssrs. Groombridge and Meredith, on Thursday afternoon. The party travelled by'com pass, in as nearly n direct line as possible-the bearing bçing south 35 west. Unfortunately, It rained hard on Thursday and Friday, and not being provided with tent or other covering, thoy passed two very uncomfortable nigjhts. Thoir labours have, however, been crowned.with complete success, and a road will' be formed in the course of a few days, making tho distance about twelve miles, on the line marked by M...

MISCELLANEOUS SHIPPING. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 9 February 1855

MISCELLANEOUS SHIPPING. Loss of the Forerunner.-Plymouth, Nov. 8. Intelligence has been received here of the loss of this steamer, under the command of Capt. John- ston. She left this port on the 24th August with the outward mails for the Coast of Africa, ¿md irai due on her homeward voyage to-day, but was not expected for two days, in consequence of its having been arranged that on her passage out she should expend forty-eight hours, if necessary, in seeking to obtain communication with the Niger expedition. The Forerunner, although the smallest steamer on the line, was considered the fastest, and invariably arrived with the mails days before she was expected. This was the first voyage of the Forerunner since Capt. Johnston took command, Captain Barnwell, the old commander, having been appointed to the Ethiope. A communication from the Admiralty has been received at Lloyd's, announcing that, in the event of the continuance of the war with Russia next spring, a strict blockade will ...

The hobarton Mercury: FRIDAY MORNING, 9TH FEB., 1855. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 9 February 1855

Cue Äofcarton í&crcurx» t FRIDAY MORNING, 9TH FEB., 1855. THE monstrous folly of the new Licensing Act is becoming more and more apparent. From Richmond to* Sorell, from Sorell to Prosser's Plains, the old wayside houses have disappeared. There are no possible means for the traveller be'Ween these town- ships to procure any refreshment : he may sink from exhaustion, and die in the bush ; he will have a consolation he dies in accord- ance with the provisions of an Act of Council. The Act requires certificates from certain householders residing within a given dis. tance, both as to the character of an appli- cant, and the accommodation, afforded by his house. These, from mere local cir- cumstances-such as that no such house- holder does reside within the required circle-it is often impossible to procure. Hence, the license is not even applied foi» and the public are deprived of the benefits it afforded. .* Again, it often happen« that in country road-side inns, the keeping of ...

EUROPEAN WAH NEWS, EE-INrOBCEMENTS FOB THE CBIMEA. The Times after noticing that four thous- and men are alreadv on their way to re- inforce Lord Raglau, says that these re- inforcements are not made on a scale or with the promptitude worthy of the emerr gency, and adds.-"We believe we have some* 20,000 soldiers at home, besidessome thousands more who might be drawn from our garrisons in the Mediterranean, their places being supplied, if necessary, by militia, ready and willing to discharge this duty. Why should not all that is dispo- sable of this force be thrown at once on the shores of the Crimea? Why should o\w soldiers and sailors be worn out with incessant fatigue by day and night, in the effort to make 1G,000 men discharge the duty that was intended for 30,000 ?" The Times also asks, "Why not send out the steam fleet as it arrives from the Baltic, to enable us" to be masters of the Eu\ine I during the stormy season of Hie yeal*, and I to keep up in every part of it the ûnremi...

THE AFFAIR OF THE RUSSIAN PRISONERS. (From the Placer Times, November 27.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 9 February 1855

THE AFFAIR OF TliE RUSSIAN PRISONERS. (From the Placer Times, November 27.) The town was all agog yesterday morn ing, in anticipation of another affair which might perchance - terminate in war, It appears that on Saturday, a writ of habeas corpus was issued out oí the Twelfth Dis- trict Court, by Judge Norton, upon affidavit that certain parties were illegally detained on board Hie Sitka-the prize ship taken by the Allies at Petropoloski. The parties detained were the Russian prisoners of war, captured on board at tho time. The mut was served by a deputy sheriff of our country on the English officer in command of the vessel-which was then laying at Saueelilo, and was made returnable this morning a ten o'clock. At an early hour yesterday morning, the Sitka slipped her cable and by noon was out at sea, heading westward, with officers and prisoners on board : and where she may now be, it is difficult to tell. One thing is certain, neither the officers towhom-the writ was addressed nor ...
