PARLIAMENT OF TASMANIA. -» LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 281«. THE PRESIDENT took his seat at 5 minutes/ past 4 o'clock. vA / COLONIAL DEFENCES. ^fC"" On tho order of the day being read for y*con* sideration of the Report of the Committee on the Defences of the Colony, The COLONIAL SECRETARY said he under- stood yesterday that the hon. member for Hobart (Mr. Wedge) gave notice of his intention to move an amendment when the motion came on that tho Report should be adopted, and in that case perhaps the best course to pursue would be« to move the House into Committee, but on considering the Report, and looking at the important recom- mendations it contained, and the consideration that should be given to those recommendations before acting upon them, ho thought it advisable to let the Report remain as it was, though at the same time he approved of almost every recommendation it contained. At this late period of the Session it wonld be perhaps unodvisable to proceed further in t...

THE NEW ZEALAND WAR. LATEST INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 29 September 1860
THE NEW ZEALAND WAR. LATEST INTELLIGENCE. &nbsp; From the Sydney Morning Herald we ex- tract the " Journal of Events" of the New Zealand war, from the 30th ult. to the 13th inst., inclusive :- By the mail steamer Lord Ashley, we have papers from Taranaki (New Plymouth,) to the &nbsp; &nbsp; 13th inst. Previous advices were to the 30th ult., at which time it was stated that the rebels had abandoned their strongholds at Waireka, Wai- tara, and Puketakauere. Since then, as we anticipated, our troops have been beating about the bush in search of the enemy,—with what success will be learned from the annexed de- tails, which we quote chiefly from the Taranaki Herald :- In reporting the abandonment (says that journal) of the Puketakauere pah, which de- rives its consequence from the assault made upon it on the 27th June, we can do little more than speculate upon the fact. It is no secret now that an expedition, such as should over- power resistance, was in course of...

Mr. ALLISON presumed that this would havQ a retrospective effect ; ho had spoken to an officer of the Government on the subject, who seemed to agree in the desirability of this proceeding, and he (Mr. Allison) considered it was only fair that it should havo this effect.

BRIGHTON RACES. TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 1 October 1860
BRIGHTON RACES. TO THE EDITOB OP THE MERCURY. Sin,-What about the Brighton Races ? is the anxious enquiry of the inhabitants of this district. It appears that there bai o been twomeetings called for the purpose of fixing the above-named races, and there has not been more than four Íiersons present, and so far as it has gone they aro ikely to die a natural death. The sole objection to tile inhabitants taking a part is that they dis- approve of the present Secretary, and the Stewards decline to act until there is another appointed. If that is the complaint why not call a meeting and appoint a Secretary that they have confidence in, for you are well aware that the Brighton Races have been looked upon as one of the best meets in the colony. I hope you will stir yourself in this matter and call upon tho Brightoners to exert themselves. I am, Sir, Your obedient servant TURFITE.
