Sir Henry Fox Young's forte appears to oe retrenchment, (a favorite hobby with all new governors,) and to be accomplished in a manner which has caused very consi- derable astonishment. His Excellency, as is customary in such cases, has paid a visit of inspection to various departments of the government, and has been actuated by a spiritjof keen and minute enquiry. What he has discovered, it matters not ; it is the result only with which we have to deal. And what is the result 1 The intended ' resignation of some of the oldest officers of the government : officers old in service, old in. j cars, and well-esteemed by the commu- nity ; and to whose official conduct no blame is attached.

THE " CITY ELECTION." [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 16 February 1855

THE " CITY ELECTION." The modest and unpretending address sent forth to the electors by Mr. Arthur Perry seems to have engendered a laud- able spirit of opposition ; and Dr. Bedford, unsolicited, offers in a personal canvass to sacrifice himself to the public good, and accept a scat in the Legislative Council a sacrifice, no doubt, quite disinterested . and one which the electors will justly estimate. It is not our purpose at present to analyze the claims either Mr. Perry or Dr. Bedford have upon the suffrages of the electors, or their capacity as Legis- lators,-but, in proper season, we ahull have sufficient to say-sufficient to shew that neither are suited to become the repre- sentative of the capital of this colony. Our purpose in penning this artcle is to warn the electora not to.be cnjoled into a promise of support for either candidate. The spirit merchants, owners of public house property, and the licensed victuallers in particular, cannot but favourably remember Dr. Bedford's...
