THE LIBEL PROSECUTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 12 June 1857

THE LIBEL PROSECUTION. Wjiex we pointed out the injurious effect which a criminal prosecution against the Courier would have upon the character of Ma. Geegsox, we were almost inclined to have believed that such an equivocal proceeding would not have been persisted in. But we were mistnken. The course Mb. Guegsoî." has adopted, must seriously damage his reputation, and peril his standing, both in society and Parliament. We regret it, on his own account, most sincerely. Any unbiassed person perusing the proceedings in the Police Court, reported in another column, must sym- pathise deeply with the painful and humilia- ting position in which Mn, Ghegsox was placed by the damaging speech of Mn. Bbeweb. LABOUR AND EMIGRATION. An Anti.Immigration Meeting has been held 'n Melbourne, for the purpose of adopting resolutions condemnatory of sending home any part of the public revenue for the intro- duction of labour into the present over- crowded labour market of Victoria, and adopting a petit...

24 DAYS LATER FROM ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 12 June 1857

24 DAYS LATER FROM ENGLAND. The European dropped anchor in Hobson's Bay at half-past eleven last Saturday night bringing advices from the Old World twenty-four days later than those of the Norfolk. The most interesting feature of the news is the result of the general elec- tion in Great Britain and Ireland, Parliament hav- ing been dissolved on the 31st of March; and we subjoin a regime of the chief incidents of the con- test. On the 14th of April another Princess was added to the Royal Family, and according to the latest bulletin, "Her Majesty and the infant Piincess are going on favourably. The English papers report the existence of a very general feeling of dissatisfaction, occasioned by the rumour, that the House of Commons will be invited to grant a dowry of £70,000 to the Princess Royal on her approaching marriage with the Prince of Prussia; apart from the unpopularity of the head of the Royal Family of Prussia, and the antipathy entertained against the general prin- ciple of ...

THE WELLINGTON EMIGRATION FUND. (From the Times.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 12 June 1857

THE WELLINGTON EMIGRATION FUND. (Frgm ti» Time».) There is a little matter which we would , fain urge upon the consideration of our I reade«, even atnjd tye dit) of eleo^on,eeriug j strife. It may not be quite forgotten tlisft some weeks since, when there was held in Smithfield a meeting of distressed labourers mid artisaus, we pointed to emigration as the true source of relief. The question is so completely one of common sense that we can scarcely conceive the existence of two opinions upou the subject. Suppose that these islands in placo of a populatien of 30,000,00, or thereabouts, contained but a populaliou of 15,000,000-the national resources, the fer» tility of the soil, and tho manufacturing ca- pacities remaining the same-it is quite clear that whatever inconvenience might be the result, that iuconveuience would not be felt by the labouring population. The real cause of the misery which fell upon cer taiu sections of the labouring classes during the winter, which is now pass...

The result has not greatly sur piiscd me ; and so far as I am personally con- cerned, inasmuch as it liberates mc from pub tie life in a manner which involves on my part no shrinking frem ray duty, 1 cannot seriously regret it. I lament it on public grounds, bc \ cause }t fells the world that many among you have abandoned the opinions you professed to hold in the year 1847, and even so recently as in the year 1S52.
