COMMERCIAL HOBART TOWN MARKETS. Mercury 0¿\cc, Saturday Afternoon. Both in the import and colonial produce markets business has continued very quiet throughout the week, nothing having occurred to cause any parti- cular movement. Grain, ¿c.-At the opening of the week millers were offering 7s. for wheat, which bolders however did not seem inclined to take, but on the receipt of telegraphic intelligence from Melbourne via George Town on Tuesday, notifying a rise in the markets of the neighbouring colonies, prices went np and a few sales were made at 7s. 9d. to 8s., and yesterday one or two sales were made at 8s. and 8s. 3d., ad- vices from Melbourne by the City of Hobart an- nouncing an additional advance in that market.

LA POLITIQUE ANGLAISE. (FROM THE SATURDAY REVIEW, JULY 21.) [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 1 October 1860

LA POLITIQUE ANGLAISE. (FnOSI THE SATURDAY KEVIEW, JULY 21.) i The forro, type, and paper of a French pam- phlet, leaving the title La Politique Anglaise, remind the correspondent of The Times of " foi'uierpublications of a similar kimi, the oflicial character of which has never been seriously disputed." If this comparison is correct, the pamphlet is certainly important, from the dis- tinct thongh hypocritical avowal of certain Inr ritorial views which it contains. " What France desires is to pursue freely the magnificent de- velopment of her intellectual and material force. To attain this object she requires se. curity, and that is what is wanting to her. .She remembers ccalitions, and wants to be strong enough at home to brave them ; she therefore requires fiontiers better defined aud settled easier to defend -those, in fact, which nature has given us.
