THE LAUNCESTON RACES. Our contemporary the Cornwall Chronicle of Saturday, in reporting the Launceston " meet," prefaces his report with the following observations: " The racing was not BO good as we have seen ; it seems now to be generally admitted that the past three or four years has shown a falling off. If it were not so it would bo strange i it cannot bo dis- puted that the principal cause is the number of meets in the colony j Longford only a week or two ago, Carrick last week, now Launceston, Deloraine, Oatlands, '^Campbell Town, and Hobart Town, shortly."

PUBLIC MEETING AT THE ROYA VICTORIA THEATRE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 5 March 1855

PUBLIC MEETING AT THE HOYA VICTORIA THEATRE. Last Tuesday was a day which merit« ever to be remembered in Australian history, ns displaying the remarkable liberality for which the colonists and natives are distinguished. That in o colony wherein the inhabitants arc co remote from the land of their primogenitors,-a people obviously venturing to this extreme antipodes for the purpose of pushing their ?worldly fortunes, should come forward in immense numbers, and subscribe money by thousands for the relief of the military and naval forces and their widows and orphans embroiled in hostilities, proves that Australia ii as sound, and sterling in heart, as the sturdy tree of which she is BO flourishing a branch. The Governor Gérerai presided at the meeting, and certainly no Governor ever arrived in an -British-colonial possession with so favorable and opportunity to reap a rich harvest of popularity.

îSoral ilctojs Tue DOO NUISANCK-CAUTION.-We beg to caution the public against permitting their dogs to be at large under no control, as the police have strict orders to apprehend every dog so found in the streets. Fortunately we have no hydrophobia here, or the consequences would be indeed lament- able. As it is, however, the number of vicious curs that are to bo met with in almost every street is a nuisance that calls for removal. NOKFOLK IstAND.-In addition to the particu- lars of the arrival of the Lady Franklin, mentioned in our last, we have to add the following : the weather has been exceedingly hot ; about two months ago the roof of a fine building, the military hospital, caught fire, supposed to be from the rays of the sun, and considerable damage was done be- fore the fire was quenched, but fortunately no lives were lost. There are about fifty prisoners left on the Island, with a military guard, and some civil officers, who will most probably be conveyed to Hobart Town by t...

It will be evident to every reader that Dr. ¡ Crooke has not yet to learn his poli- tical primmer, that he does not rest his support upon the prestige of a musty ai. cestry, but upon the legitimate mid auspi coiis foundation of a clear conception of the wants, as well as the destinies ol' his adopted land,and upon a bold liberal emin- j dation of his opinions upon their subjects. !
