It is a matter of gratulation to the trade, as ex- hibiting its very healthy condition, that tha whole of the above quantity should have found ready pur- chasers atan average advance of5 per cent, on the prices realised at the July-August series. For the opening sales of next year, which will probably commence about the middle of February, there are already 19,000 bales arrived, and with «argoes known t6 be afloat, »e may look for full 40,000 bales.

VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 19 February 1855

VICTORIA. Bv the city of Hobart, Melbourne journals to the 15th have come to hand. Trade was extremely dull, and a gene- ral cry of want of employment amongst the operatives, had brought out the Herald, who asserts that there is no lack of em- ployment, but that the operatives will not submit to the altered state of affairs, which had passed over all classes in that colony. The amended estimates, and the public disturbance prevention bill were under dis- cussion by the legislature. Mr Harrison had given notice of motion for the re-com- mittal of the latter measure, with the view to to its modification, so as to enable the government upon request, by commission- ers appointed for that purpose, to award compensation for damage done to private property, and that an assessment to defray the same, be raised in the district where such damage had been committed. This suggestion seems to be very popular, and the Argus says that Mr Harrison " has done good service to the colony by his motion...

Petty Annoyances.-We have to notice a variety of petty nnnoyaiics instituted by certain underlings attached to the Custom House, by their impertinent and annoying interference in matters of very trifling import, by insisting in searching articles brought on shore, or otherwise,-as, for example, a small parcel of fruit, or even a single melon, which these gentry over-haul, and in some instance, very materially damaging the articles. One instance we may particularize : the agent for the Duke of Lancaster had brought on shore a sample of oats, and other articles, which were ac- tually seized for th...

fWic $trtaVtoit fftcvcum MONDAY MORNING, 19th FEB. 1855, I Never has an English army more faith- fully and efficiently discharged the duty it owed to its country than the daring handful of men brought into action on the memorable 5th of November-in the bat- tle of Inkerman. They displayed during that trying day the highest qualifications of veteran soldiers, and elicited {he admi- ration of friends and foes. General Can robert declared-and praise from such a source is truly acceptable-that " two divi- sions of the English force sustained, with that immovable constancy (or solidity) which we know so well to be the charac- teristic of our Allies, the unequal combat." He also in his despatch says that " the English Army sustained the combat with remarkable firmness." We dwell on these points with pardonable complacen- cy-for nothing ia more acceptable than the appreciation of congenial minds-arid wo can easily understand how grateful to the hearts of those engaged, and their nu- merous...

Last night a meeting of Mr. Perry's sup- porters was held at the Mechanics' Insti- tute : the meeting was announced for 7 o'clock, but it was some time aller that hour that the Hall was filled with persons, some in favour of" the candidate ami others adverse to his interests.

A TURKISH LADY AT THE OPERA [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 21 February 1855

A TURKISH LADY AT THE OPERA Tho Baila -2VJNC*' correspondent, writing Nov. 14, from Bucharest, says:-"On Friday last, an incident occurred at tho opera here which has excited considerable sensation and is the talk of the town. Omer Pacha made his appearance in his box, accompanied by the wife of his nephew, Tefwik Bey. The lady was completely unveiled, and sat thus listening to the music with the most perfect compo- sure. This is, I believe, the first instance on record in which the wife of a Mussulara has displayed her features before men, and above all before giaours, and isconsequeut ly a tremendous innovation, of which I am very anxious to see the result. It displays great courage on the part of Omer Pacha but will, I um certain, when the news reach Constantinople, excite the fiercest ire amongst the old Turks. Mussar Paclia came into tiwi box soon after, and enter- ed into conversation with madame, and while this was going on Ismail Pacha (not he of Kalalat) arrived, and tool: ...
