TASMANIAN YACHT CLUB. The Annual Meeting of the above Club was held at Mr. Basstian's, last evening, for the purpose of electing officers for the ensuing year, of appointing Sub-Committees lor sailing, measuring, and gene- ral purposes, and for other business in connection with the Club. Mr. Basstian was voted to the chair. The Chairman, in reference to the vote of £100 for a Yacht Race, explained that, as one of the de- putation appointed to wait upon the city members, everything was done that could be done to ensure a majority iu the House, but in consequence of the illness of Mr. Chapman, who had undertaken to move the vote, the lateness of the Session, and the thinness of the House when the motion was brought forward, tho vote was negatived. A long and desultory discussion took placo on the construction of the rules, having reference to the payment of subscriptions, and, failing this, whether a meeting could be constituted. Eventual^ Mr. Kilburn moved, and Mr. Chandler se- conde...

The Anniversary dinner of the Brethren of the Prince of Wales Lodge of the Ancient and Independent Order of OJd Fellows was given at Host Lee's, the Globe Inn, Davey-street, on Monday evening last. Upwards of forty brethren sat down. The Chair was occupied by the Grand Master, and the Vice-chair by the Deputy Grand Master of the Order, supported ou either side by Grand Officers A more sumptuous table we do not remember to have seen laid out iu Tasmania. Every delicacy of the season was laid under contribution for the occasion. We have so often been called upon to chronicle these happy festivals that we find a difficulty in importing into the description of this-one of the most harmonious of them all -anything new. To those who are unac- quainted with the feelings which animate the brethren of the Order, and more especially with the feelings which animate the brethren of the same Lodge, it would be impossible to give any adequate description or to convey even a...

TELEGRAPHIC DESPATCHES. ^ [prom the melbourne papers.] SYDNEY. Wednesday. Two seamen of the Dione quarrelled last night, and one, a Spaniard, stabbed the other, an Ameri- can, who is not expected to live, being wounded in the lung and cut across the abdomen. There was no quorum at the Assembly,-it could not muster one even, to present the address to the Governor. Tho address is a mere echo of the speech. Thursday.

THE ROYAL SOCIETES MUSEUM. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 3 October 1860

THE ROYAL SOCIETES MUSEUM. Although the Session of Parliament ¡3 w¡ti,¡n one day of its termination, we trust it is not yet too late to rectify the blunder that has been committed on the subject 0f the Royal Society's Museum. The Legislative Council may surely content itself with having rejected the £5,000 item in aid of roads,with0ut any further vexatious display of its power. The question of a site for the new Museum has been settled hy the agree ment of the Council 0f the Society and the Government. That settlement has received the full assent of the House of Assembly, in which tbe citizens of Hobart Town are amply repre sented. Under these circumstances it appears preposterous that tbe capital should be deprived of the new Museum for another year at least, because a difference of opinion exists as to the site to be chosen. There is nothing so very difficult of decision in the question between the Queen's domain and the old Government House site. If members of the Legislative Cou...

JUNG BAHADUR'S REWARD. [FROM THE FRIEND OF INDIA.] [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 3 October 1860

JUNG BAHADUR'S REWARD. i [feom the friend of india.] The Anglo-Indian public are still naturally incredulous as to the valuo ol the services ren- dered by Jung Bahadur and the Nepauleso Stato in 1857-58. There is still a feeling that tho re- bellion and the campaign were well advanced before the Ghoorkas resolved on the course they would pursue, but they manifested a provoking slo.vnessin debouching from their hills into the plains of Oude, and that their dilatormess em- barrassed the movements of Lord Clyde, aud caused much of the delay for which he has been blamed. It is still believed that the Ghoorkas were never heartily on our side, that they were to a great extent coerced by their leader, that they had none of the qualities of soldiers, that plunder, not assistance to the British in the hour of theirneed, was their motive, aud that the "loot" they carried off with them in such indecent haste was a reward far greater than their show of service deserved. The demand made by Jung ...

JAPAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 3 October 1860

JAPAN. Despatches from Mr. Alcock, our Envoy in Japan, dated in March and April, which have been laid before Parliament, give avery unsatis- factory account of the position ofßrhUh subjects in> Jeddo. lu January his Japanese linguist had been assassinated in the daytime, close to the gateway of the embassy, and he felt that he must " trust in Providence, aud take his chance." In March two Dutchmen, masters of merchant vessels, were backed to pieces in the public streets ; and the thirst for the blood of foreigners had led to the loss of six lives in as many months, the Government neither prevent- ing assassinations, nor bringing the perpetra- tors to justice. Before the month was out came an attempt ou the Hie of the Regent, the highest personage iu the Empire after the Mikado und the Tycoon, close to his own mansion, in the daytime, and on the great highway of the official quarter. He and his retinue were attacked by a dozen or moro of the Prince of Mito's men, a disaffected pre...
