THE MERCURY WEDNESDAY, APRIL 7TH, 1858. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 7 April 1858

.qmr. I^i -unit. THE MERCURY 'WEDNESDAY, APRIL 7th, 1858. | Tub remarks made in this journal rela- tive to the imposition of so unheard of E -j 7 » fine as Five Pounds for a first con- viction under a practically obsolete law against Sunday trading have met with ' " almost universal sympathy. We stated r~v Jo tbose remarks that we should set our w< ,?;, face in opposition to any such tyrannical ti'it < proceeding on the part of our newly - '' created Aldermanic Magistrates. We word relative to the late fines. The Alderman who imposed them must be .ji.f, .',88 sensible as we are that he inadvert .u <, i ently and unknowingly lent himself to the perpetration of nn act of intolerable 9<U -tyranny.

On the 21st of July last Dr. Churchill, an English physician who bad experimented largely on tho treatment of consumption at the ConP sumption Hospital, Brompton, read , a poper before the Acadumy of Medicine of .Paris, on the " Immediate Causa of, anda Specific Remedy for,Consum)>tioi¿" of yiifioh the following is a summing up:- I V In June, 1850, the Academy did ma | the honour of accepting' sealed' pape...

THE FIRST IRON VESSEL. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 7 April 1858

THE FIRST IRON VESSEL. When Richard Reynolds, in 1765, cast six tons of iron rails and laid them down from Coalbrookdale to the Seven, he little thought, we dare say, that rail- ways would grow, and spread, and mul-   tiply till they enveloped the island and enclosed the globe in their embrace When Mr. Darby, his successor in the management of the works, in 1799, bridged over the Severn at one of its narrowest and most picturesque rocky gorges, a mile and a half below, he had no idea that in little more than half a century of that time, iron, palaces, iron and crystal, interlaced and self-support ing, would grow and spread in flowing lines of full-blown beauty over broad, , acres of mother earth. Neither did John Wilkinson, who, as some of the copper "tokens" of that period that now and then turn up tell us, had works at Bradley, Eersham, Snedshill, and Willey, when ho and his " man Friday" John Lincoln, constructed   the first iron barge, imagine that it w...
