THE MERCURY $uulfalirt> íHanUnfl, Wittmtmy ^JFïittao WEDNESDAY.MORNING. JUNE, 21th, 1857. The extent to tvliich perjury prevails in this Colony evidences, not only a loose stato of public morals, but, also, a weak administration of the law-the laxity of the one being fos- tered by the imbecility of the other. lb would bo manifestly opposed to our interests to give 'offence, even wero it not repugnant to oui' feelings j and, it may be easily belioved, there- fore, that wo can have no desire to nay any- thing unnecessarily harsh or severe ; but the crime of perjury hoe assumed 'so serious an aspect during the past week, and, it is so pal- pably on the increase, that- to refrain from speaking out boldly would not only bo a crime in itself, but it would justly render us liable to a charge of secretly abetting it. Who can adequately estimate tho mischief and the wrong that must accrue if the present abom- inable practice be persisted in? Perjury is an open and on impudent immorality :...

LOCAL NEWS. New Organ.-The New Organ for St. David's Cathedral has it will be seen, by our ship- ping report, arrived by the "Heather Bell." EMILY SANDFORD.-A correspondent of the Border Post saysthat the particulars having an alleged reference to this lady, which have been going the round of the papers under the title of "Crime and Episodes," are a tissue of gross falsehoods from beginning to end. It is true he says that this much-to-be-pitied woman lived some time at Ade- laide, almost unknown; but eventually she became the wife of a German gentleman of some standing there, and, as his wife, her conduct and general de- portment were beyond reproach. To this I can bear witness, from being on intimate terms with her husband (who is one of the most pleasant and gentlemanly men I ever met with). I frequently spent an evening at his house; and during one of these visits, from a mere accident, I discovered who his wife was. At this time Emily Sandford had been about two years married, a...

BALLAD CONCERTS. MR.STEPHEN MASSETT'S FIRST APPEAR- ANCE IN HOBART TOWN. The debut of this accomplished composer, author, and vocalist, at the Theatre Royal on Monday night, was received with very flattering applause by a highly respectable and genteel audi- ence. In the present dearth of rational amuse- ment, the advent of almost any person of even mediocre attainments, would have been welcomed with delight and eagerness, but Mr. Marett really possesses qualifications which are in themselvc8 highly attractive. His singing, accompanied by himself on the piano, is characterised by great taste, feeling, and clever artistic execution, and his comic recitations are admirable; in short, Mr. Massett has made a most sucutssful debut, and we hope to have frequent opportunities of enjoying hjt varied arid very entertaining talent. Wo huye not space to enter into any critical de- tail of the performances, but we may state that each was well received, and that the majority were loudly applaude...
