I believe up to this time I have the most authentic information on thp subject, and from having patients under my care laboring under the diseases for which those new remedies are applied, I have tried them with the most bene- ficial results. If therefore you think them of any importance, you can insert the following in your paper. , I am, Sir, Yours, Seo,, II. Bright. NEW MODES OF REMOVING TUMOURS.

POLITICAL COQUETRY. (From the London Times.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 19 June 1857

POLITICAL COQUETBY. {From the London'Times.) How much depends upon a name t Call a man " a political adventurer" and you have done for him. A pious horror rises at the very word in tho breasts of respectable fuu ded or landed proprietors. They begin to think of revolution, disorganisation, and agrarian laws ; or, if they think themselves safe from such outrages, it is only to exchange alarm for disgust. What a low fellow must a political adventurer be,-a man who has, no political pedigree, no titledeeds, no rolls, and " who " does not write himself ' Armígero* in " any bill, warrant, quittance, or obligation!" The name carries with it Gipsy associations to them, an odour of booths, of fairs, of what is called " low life," and of all those scenes in which dark-looking men with long hair are seen penetrating through the mystery of this sublunary system, and taklug steps for getting their poor share of the general scram- ble, (low eau wo trust a political adven- turer ?

TASMANIAN SKETCHES. [No. 2.] [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 19 June 1857

TASMANIAN SKETCHES. [No. 2.] I shall never forget tho first impression I received of Tasmania. The nature of the scenery gradually changed as we approached towards the mouth of the River. The baldness of the Coast - iron-bound, wild, and desolate - had a chilling and a repulsive effect upon one's spirits. With the exception of the myriads of sea birds which everywhere dark-   ened the land, there was nothing around us approximating to vitality. An apology for   verdure, - a stunted furze - crowned the lofty summit of Cape Pillar, whilst a scarcely greener vegetation capped tho Raoul. There was sufficient only to make the impression of its sterility more forbidding and cheerless; and, although it was the month of October, and the sun was rolling along a path of unin- terrupted glory - lighting up, here and there, the sharp angles of the frowning cliffs with its beams, - spotting the cold grey masses of granite with a warm touch of yellow, and en- livening th...

THE MERCURY íluulíaljtti fHonttaa, BSaeïrneauttrj & tfrftraij FRIDAY MORNING. JUNE, 19ra, 1857. We perceive by the Melbourne journals that a large meeting of the Miners has been hold at Ballaarat, at which resolutions of tho ut- most importance were proposed and adopted. The two first of these Resolutions related to certain disgraceful proceedings on the part of the Members of the Local Courts ; and con- demned the present system of administering justice in them. These questions are strictly local in their character, and do not, therefore, call for any particular notice at our hands. Not so, however, the third resolution which is as follows : "That this meeting is of opinion that the Land Bill of the present Government, now before the Assembly, is opposed to the best interests of the Colony ; and that no measure will satisfy the peo- ple which does not give to them land at a low fixed price, and also with the right of free ' selec tion." i i The principles enunciated in this...
