EXTRAORDINARY CASE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 29 June 1857

EXTRAORDINARY CASE. " For tho lastrfew days the public of Glasgow have been doeply moved by the report that a gentleman had been poisoned by his sweet- heart, the daughter of a highly respetable family, which moves in the better classes ol society. These rumours obtained embodi- ment and confirmation when it became known that the young lady had actually been appre- hended at the instance of the Public Prosecu- tor, and that she is at this moment in the prison of Glasgow upon the charge of suspec- ted poisoning. As there is no public coroner's inquest in Scotland, the real facts connected with a case of this kind arc difficult to be had ; but it u believed that the following recital is authentic so far as it goes :-It appears that on Monday, the 23rd of March last, a young French Protestant gentleman, named M. Pierre Emile L'Angelier, who is connected w.lh ti e house of Messis. W. B. Huggins, died sud- denly in his lodgings in the city. From cir- cumstances which came to their Innvle...

COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 29 June 1857

COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE . SYDNEY. By way of Melbourne we havo Sydney j ournals to the 20th. We take the following from the «'Herald" of that date : - Debentures, which were rather flat and difficult of sole nt tbe commencement of tbo week, aro again in demand, and havo changed hands at par to half per cent, premium, with accrued interest added to the principal. We observo by an advertisement-to ap , pear in to-morrow's "Herald-that applica- tions will be received by the Government, until noon, on Saturday, the 27th June, for £10 debentures, bearing five per cent interest. These debentures are to be on the same prin- cipal as, and similar to, those for larger amounts that have been lately issued. Whether the working class and small capi- talists will avail themselves of this mode of investment, instead of allowing their money to lay idle, is a question of much importance. At any rate, they will no longer bo able to complain that large capitalists aro allowed to monopolise the whole o...

IUUU *» ' ' SOUTH AUSTRALIA. He ' Í We have Adelaide papers to the 18th inst. In,on article on " Colonial Confederation" the m\Jiffligter observes :-"If it were agreed to hold the meetings of the Assembly invariably in one of the Australian capitals, there can he no doubt that the geographical position of ' Melbourne indicates that city as the place of meeting. This would be specially the case if Tasmania were a party to the Union. With- out Tasmania, or even with her concurrence, supposing Moreton Bay to he established as a separate colony, and to be represented in the Assembly, it might bo desirable to meet *' at borne central point in the valley of the * Murray where at some future day an Austra- lian Washington may be built."

THEATRE ROYAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 29 June 1857

THEATRE ROYAL. Tue publi o will leam wlllrregrct that the T.essce of the Theatre Royal has cancelled his lease with the Proprietor, and that, henceforth, Theatrical peí formalices will cease in Hobart Town. We can only say that the public have to thank themselves for this deprivation of a rational and an elevated amusement, as, no matter what amount of talent may have been engaged, the Lessee, after a night or two of, perhaps, limitad patronage, has had to bear all the burthensomo expense. This evening, the Theatre will close with the farewell Benefit of Mr. Stephen Massett, who will introduce a variety of new readings, imitations, ballads and songs. As this will be positively the last appearance of this accomplished Altiste, we need scarcely recommend our Theatrical friends to avail themselves of his very entertaining perfor- mances. We understand this gentlomsn visits Oat1ands,Campbelltown and Launceston this week, and we commend bim to ourfrlend«, as agciillcniau whose unique, no...

A very simple circumstance-albeit ft novel oi»e-Jins chiven him into the enjoyment of certain "anticipa- tory indulgences," which, we fear, are not very likely to bo soon realised. We are told, that he has "often indulged in anticipations of the day that proclaims the Town of Launces- ton the capital of the Island1'-and this is set down with an air of prophetic seriousness which is well worthy of being expressed in far better terms. Such an ignis fatuos may be congenial to the foggy waters of the north : but, it could not exist for a moment on this side of Oatlands.

LOCAL NEWS. The EuBBisir Nuisance.-Tlie City Inspector,, we perceive, has commenced a very necessary work, in endeuvouring to obviate the nui- sance, caused, in many parts of the City, by lb« casting of filth and rubbish into the streets. As it is the duty of the Inspector to pay especial regaid to the sanitory condition pf the Town, it is to be hoped, that ho will prosecute this work with unre- mitting energy, to preserve the citizens from the intolerable nuisance, which is caused in so many populous localities by persons, who are too idle or are too dirtily inclined to observe tho common de- cencies of society. The Town Cüeekship.-The Aldermen met at the Municipal Council Chamber on Wed- nesday to consider the be3t and most economical mode of supplying the vacancy caused by the resig- nation of the Town Clerk.

LATEST EUROPEAN, Milk or Diseased Cows.-Evidence is strongly in favour of the suspicion that by tho medium of diseased milk as food, any poison may he transmitted from the body of one an- imal into that of another. Through hei milk the syphilitic wet nuise tiansmitg in some ca:cs the disease to the suckling child. Thiough the milk secretion eveiy soluble vegetable and mineral poison is easily ^transmissible. We have ourselves thus de- tected the transmission of antimony, mercury, and iodine, from parent to offspiiug ; and we think it possible that in one case of cholera in an infant at the breast, the disease vins directly conveyed by the same channel from the suffering mothci. If thcie be, then, any truth in these propositions, it should obtain that the milk of diseased cows, taken as ¡í often is, uncooked must needs be a prolific source of disease in the human race.-Medi- cal Times.
