THE SALMON EXPERIMENT. TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 4 October 1860

THE SALMON EXPERIMENT. TO THE EDITOB OP THE UEBCUBT. I Sie,-I said sufficient, I trust, m my former letter, which I am indebted to your courtesy for inserting, to vindicate myself from tho imputations which I think were very gratuitously thrown upon me by members of the Select Committee, and of tho House of Assembly, during*he discussion on the proposed introduction of the salmon ova. I am not desirous therefore of referring to this subject further as ono affecting mo personally. There are however many gentlemen in England who are deeply interested in the experiment j who liberally subscribed toward it; and who will probably expect at my hands some account of the circum- stances attending my mission to this colony ; and I will bo glad if you will give me an opportunity of making some explanatory statements in your columns, that may put them in possession of the truth. I- claim this at the hands of your good feeling as a stranger amongst you. I am the moro desirous of the opportunity...

THE MERCURY. THURSDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 4TH, 1860. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 4 October 1860

THE MERCURY. THURSDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 4th, 1800. --« In the Legislative Council yesterday the Report of the Select Committee on St. Mary's Hospital was considered in Committee of the House. The Report was in substance to the effect that the pro- visions of the Bill introduced on the subject amounted to a breach of trust. It was adopted after diicussion by a majority of seven to two. The House then adjourned till this day. The House of Assembly met at the usual hour and almost immediately after rose, some formai business being transacted. The fifth Session of the Parliament of Tas- mania closes to-day. The formal duty of con- gratulating the Houses upon the successful accomplishment of the objects for which they were called together, will devolve upon His Excellency. A review of the results of the Session, and the changes it has effected in the legislation of the Colony, will be our task.

CANADIAN PREPARATIONS FOR RECEIVING THE PRINCE OF WALES. (FROM THE QUEBEC CHRONICLE.) [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 4 October 1860

CANADIAN PREPARATIONS FOR RE ' CEIVING THE PRINCE OP WALES. (from the quebec ciibonicle.) The lime has come when the public expect some general outline of the programme likely to be observed in the reception of the Prince, , and, without being oracular, we may be able to give our readers a general idea of what will be done. The public bave beeu labouring under the impression that a great portion of the arrangement would be sketched out in England. This, we have reason to believe, is not the case. Nearly everything is left to the authorities here, who, it is understood, have now been for the first time notified officially that the depar- ture from Englaud will take place on the 10th proximo. The Royal convoy will make St. John's, Newfoundland, their first landing point, proceeding thence to Halifax, from which place the Prince will go to New Brunswick and Prince Edward's Island. In the Lower Provinces his stay will necessarily be very limited, and the arrival of the Royal fleet in th...

The contingents were sum- moned by notification by Lieutenant-Colonel Russell, the newly-appointed Inspecting Field Officer of Volunteers, to assemble at the Hutchins School ground at one o'clock precisely, twenty-five from each Corps being the number selected for the purpose.

AMATEUR PERFORMANCE IN AID OF THE BENEVOLENT SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 5 October 1860

AMATEUR PERFORMANCE IN AID OF THE BENEVOLENT SOCIETY. We would remind our readers that the Amateur Performance in aid of the funds of the Benevo- lent Society will come off on Monday evening next. The programme of the performances will be found in our advertising columns. It is scarcely necessary, we should hope, to urge the claims of this truly charitable Institution upon the sympathy and support of the Community. There has been, during the winter now passing away, a very large amount of distress expe- rienced amongst the lower orders of the people, -distress which, we are proud to say,1ms been alleviated by the Institution tor the benefit of which Monday's performances are to be given. The incessant demands ma'le upon the funds of the P.enevolent Society have well nigh exhausted the 'means at the disposal of the Committee ; and, as it is absolutely necessary, in order to continue its usefulness, that some additional efforts should be made to replenish its exchequer.the Amateurs, i...

THE COST OF THE CHINA WAR. [FROM THE TIMES, 17TH JULY.] [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 5 October 1860

THE COST OF THE CHINA WAR. Tfrom the times, 17th july/] Tho Commons have scarcely bad time to ex- press their surprise at the unexpected amount of the bill for the China "War when they ire called upon to pay for it. Last night the Chancellor of the Exchequer desired the House " to make provision to meet the expenditure that had been voted in Supply," and he ex- plained with all his wonted fluency, and with a distressing affluence of figures how different the reality b»fore bim was from his anticipations and how little the circum- stances of the 16lh of July warranted his statements upon the 10th af February. It was bold in Mr. Gladstone to mention these two dates. Nothing but his great,, self-reliance could have concealed from him that the difference between the financial speeches of these two days was not the only distinction which divides them. On the 10th of Febiuary Mr. Gladstone was a Minister who had the trust of the nation and the confidence of the House of Commons. His sore ...
