MISCELLANEOUS SHIPPING [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 17 June 1857

MISCELLANEOUS SHIPPING The steamer City of Hobart is unavoidably de- tained until to-morrow. The alterations in her machinery will be completed to-day. when she will make a short trial trip, down the river. H. M* S. "Raleigh."-This vessel, hearing the flag of Commodore Keppel, while almost in sight of her destination, struck on a sunken rock, and after a run of nearly twenty-five miles was beached on an island in the neighbourhood of Macao. We say beached, but we ought rather to say sunk in 12 ieet mud and three fathoms water. It seems to he doubtful if she will be saved. Tile commodore and men are, however, available as a "naval brig- ade," and as such may do more service than as the crew of a heavy frigate unable to get up the Canton River nearer to the scene of action than seven or eight miles.-China Overland Register, 25th April,

LOCAL NEWS. Ketibement ïkom the Police. Amonst the retirements from the Police force of the City, we have to notice two special cases, which, under all connecting circumstances, are worthy of record. We allude to those of District Constable John Sm'uli,attached to the water-police, and District Constable Thomas Thorpe, Inspector of weights and measure's. The ill-favour which has fallen upon the Police, and in come instances -New Norfolk to wit-not undeservedly, renders peculiarly agreeable the task of awarding praise and approbation, where they are justly due ; and the public, weare sure, will coincide in the com- mendation awarded to the officers above-mentioned. Mr Smith has been an active, zealous, but by no means an over officious public servant for twenty years, "and during the whols of that loug period has given not the slightest offence to a very fastidious public, nor in any one instance has he incurred the censure or displeasure of his superiors.
