ELECTION FOR THE CITY. MEETING OF DR. BEDFORD'S SUP- PORTERS. A meeting of electors and others favourable to the election of Dr. Uedford took place on Tuesday evening, at the Mechanics' Institute, when Dr. Butler, M.L.C. was called to the chair. The Chairman briefly addressed the meeting, ex- plaining its objects. The electors would have an opportunity of hearing Dr. Bedford, who was ready to answer any questions that might be put to him and to furnish every information on the general -.topics of the day in which the community was in- terested. The meeting would consider what was 'due from man to man, and listen to the candidate with calmness. It was suggested by Dr. Bedford, that the ques- tions should be put to the «hair, as more compati« ble to the transaction of the business of the meet- ing. Th e following questions were then put to the Chairman : By Mr. W. C. D. Smith.-Is Dr. Bedford ready to support the Sunday clause, to prevent the traffic on the Sabbath ? By Alderman Sly.-W...

Trade stilt continues dull, and in colonial pro , duce we have no alteration to notice. lu the grain market prices rule the same as our last'quotations, witb/^the exception of wheat, which has made a alight advance. The new wheat comes in but blowly, with an Apparent desire on the pirt of the growers to hold back. .It. was expected that the Mimosa would have brought a cargo from the Eastern Coast, but she brought none, while the Circassian brought only five baga. With respect to the timber trade there is little doing beyond a trifling exportation of palings. The high price of labour prevents building operations to any extent, but should wages come down, building would be carried on extensively in Hobart Town and its suburbs. The exportation of fruits and vegetables by the steamers continues, and a large quantity will leave the port for Sydney and Melbourne hy- the respective steamers. -HOBARTON PRICE CURRENT. jill articles not s...

Poetry. A Candidates Address to the Electors of B-k-h-m, slightly altered from the Speech of J. C. W-k-r, Esq. Though little I'm known at this end of the town, At New Town there's few who would doubt me, To deserve the renown that my sires handed down, As you'll see when you know more about me. From Cumberland-I-Mamma's sire the M.P., And that I think amply suffices, To show that your choice ought to fall upon me, At this very particular crisis. Besides that, I think there are few to be found Whose sires paid such sums for their learning; And the fruits ol those quarterly bills, I'll be bound, Are clear to all men of discerning. On political topics, I'm free to confess, (With regard to good sound legislation,) That much on these subjects I cannot express, But will give them due consideration. Now as to the licensing act, it is clear, That the fee quite amounts to taxation, That the Sunday clause robs a poor man of his beer, Unless kept in his own habitation. I can feelingly speak on...

Many of the border inhabitants having abandoned their farms, and retreat- ed with their families and stock to the Albany ahd Somerset districts, and even further, for safety against the rumored Kafir And Fingo war. The Kat River and Blinkwater are nearly denuded of their inhabitants ; the inhabitants of the Koonnp are nearly all gone, and many from the Fort Beaufort and Victoria districts. A meeting of Dutch Farmers, had been held on the Frontier, at which the follow- ing resolution was passed : " That according to the verbal reports wh ich are in active, currency, as well as the intelligence of tho journals, there are commotions among the Kafir tribes which may in all probability tend to the dis- advantage of Border funnels, and therefore it is advisable to appoint a Committee of Observation, whose duty it shall be to obtain such information in re...
