THE VICTORIA LAND SCHEME. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 26 June 1857

THB VICTOBIA LAND SCHEME. After a protracted debate of five nights, the Land Bill of Victoria has been read a second time ; although a large number of the Members who supported the second i eading, did so on the distinct understanding that they should move and support important alterations in the proposed measure when the Bill was in Committee. On the motion being made, that the Bill be committed, the whole strength of the Opposition was brought against it ; and, in » second edition of the Argut of Saturday lost, it was feared that the battle would have to be fought over again. Mr. O'Shaxassy and his party,havc signified their intention of contesting every inch of the ground thu' Bill passes over. Their opposition is founded on the assumption that greater privilege is extended to the Squatting interests than is compatible with the rights of the people generally. Even were this so, it is no valid reason for refusing to commit tho Bill. It is evident that the fierce op- position to th...

CHURGH AND STAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 26 June 1857

CHURGH AND STAGE. At an entertainment given at Cremorne by Mr. George Coppin to a few of his friends, by way of leave-taking, Mr. G. V. Brooke, in re- sponding to the toast " of The Drama," with which his name was coupled, mado the follow- ing remarks : " I can assure you I feel proud to have mot in the Australian colonies such a reception, not only for myself, hut for my profession. The attractions of tho drama fascinated my boyish fancy. As a youth it became my loved mistre'ss, and as a man I became deeply im- pressed with its usefulness and importance. When I hear of persons over-righteous decry- ing the theatre and heaping abuse on this most intellectual amusement, and one of the noblest arts that have descended to us from antiquity, I feel inclined to pity the sad ignorance ol' its revilors, and think with Hood: ' A man may cry ' Clinroh, church,' at every word, With no moro piety than other people : A daw's not reckoned a religious bird, Because it keops a' cawing from a steep...

THE MERCURY Published Monday, Wednesday & Friday FRIDAY MORNING, JUNE 26th, 1857. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 26 June 1857

THE MERCURY IJublíahrt jManïran, BMrtmeirtrajr *JWtau FRIDAY MORNING. JUNE 26th, 1857. The now Inspector of Police has entered upon the performance of his by no means ex- alted functions, with an amount of energy which is rather startling. This is nothing more than we anticipated. It has always been customary for parties-whether in gentle or in lowly stations-to display an unwonted zoa! in the discharge of new duties; and Mb. Foebteu forms no exception to the rule. He has to establish himself in his new office, and to vindicate the judgment of those who placed him in it. He has come into the possession of power-such as it is ; and he is now, for the first time, revelling in the luxury of hav- ing that power recognised. Zoal, in the per- formance of any duty, is as much to be com- mended, as the chance of its outstripping dis- cretion is to he dreaded. That our now IN speoiob op Pouch possesses the first, we have ample evidence ; but, we are hy no means so positivo that he is, at pre...

THE NEW PARLIAMENT. (From the Leader, April 11.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 26 June 1857

THE NEW PABLIAMENT. (From the Leader, April li.) Distributing the members of the new House of Commons under two general heads, Liberal and Conservative, we aro now enabled to calculate their respectivo forces. There are, as nearly as possible, four hundred Lib- j eral», and about two hundred and aixty- five Tories. In the late Parliament the Tories numbered more than three hundred. They appear to console themselves for their county defeats by dwelling upon the fact that they have lost few boroughs. They had, however, very few boroughs to lose. The two or three that remained to them in Scotland have been forfeited. The war was carried on in the counties, and here the results have been as touishing. Thirty county seats have been gained by the Liberal party ; only two by the Tories. The renegade Hamiltons hnve seen their influence beaten down in Lanark- shire ; some of tho Euglish counties which for many years had invariably returned a Charlton nominee, have changed sides, and given a ...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. I W« Jo not Identity our opinions with tiloso ot ont corrcipomltnta To the Editor of the Mercury. I Sin,-As it is not unlikely that, during the Parliamentary recess, the Ministry will take into consideration the Licensing Act, it may not be out of place for a publican to give his ideas for publication, that others may agree or object to the whole or any portion of those Í alterations, which, in his opinion, ought to be made in the Act referred to. I have again and again perused this law, and am really surprised how such an Act could possibly have been consented to. It is ( almo,t impossible to conceive how so much of tyianny and oppression could be packed to getlnr by any set of men who profess to value public opinion. But then it is, and the longer Í it remains the law of the land, the moro last ¡ng will be the disgrace attached to the makers of it. ol Before taking notice of some of the't severe enactments, I would call attention to that one most felt in a...

The returns already ascertained prove that the export of wheat amounts to 5,000,000 bushels, exceed- ing that of the year 1855 by 47& per cent. The number of barrels of flour exported, nearly 900,000, exceed those of 1854 by 33 per cent. The quantity of oats exported were 1,250,000 bushell, exceeding the return of 1855 by 250 per cent.
