GOVERNMENT IN FRANCE AND IN ENGLAND. (From the Spectator.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 29 June 1857

GOVERNAIENr IN FBANOE AND IN ENGLAND. (From tlie Spectator.) Few contrasts aro more striking, or moro instructive, than the position of the two Go- vernments in the Parliaments of Franco and England-if Prance can be said to have a Parliament, for in parliamentary matters she has gone back even to a timo before the days when tho English Barons compelled King John to sign charters dictated by the nobles and freeholders of tho country. In Prance everything professes to come from above downwards. .' Last yeur," says tho Emperor " my opening speech ended with an invoca- tion of the Divino protection: thnt prnver seems to have been heard ;" aud the achieve- ments of the past year aro thus piously re- ferred to the'diieet" patronage under which the Emperor claims to walk. Prom this position, as it were on the Mount, ho gives forth to his people new laws, new distribu- tions of territory, new taios, and new remis- sions of taxes. Ho professes, personally aud directly, to stimulate tho lagga...

INSOLVENT COURT.—FRIDAY. Before Mr. Commissioner Fielding Browne. In re H. J. D'Emden. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 29 June 1857

INSOLVENT COURT.-FRIDAY. Before Mr. Commissioner Fielding Browne. In re H. J. D'Emden. Adjourned first general meeting and meet- ing for discharge. Mr. Laughton wished to know whether Mr Brewer had closed the opposition. Mr. Brewer replied that he had made no opposition at all as yet. He should wait until after the Insolvent's witnesses had been examined. The following debts were proved : Kerr, Bogle and Co, £145 18s. 8d. Samuel Solomon     £40. The Commissioner refused to accept the affidavit of the last debt, it having been pre- sented by Mr. Fitzgerald, on behalf of Mr Midwood. The affidavit was, therefore, altered into the name of Mr. Fitzgerald-a memo- randum of the Commissioner's refusal having been first written, setting forth the ground of such refusal-viz: its acceptance being     inconsistent with the order he had made-and read to the Commissioner in Court. Mr. Browne acknowledged the memorandum to be correct, when the debt was proved...

TERRIFIC STORM AT SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 1 July 1857

TERRIFIC STORM AT SYDNEY. As noticed in our issue of yesterday, the fine weather with which we had been favou- red for some days previously, gave place on Tuesday to n gloomy atmosphère and frequent showers of rain. There was nothiug parti- cularly noticeable in the chinee, however, until about 30 minutes before midnight, when the -atmosphere assumed an inky blackness, | the wind blow in fitful gusts, and occasional flashes of vivid lightning pierced the gloom of the eastern horizon, clearly indicating an approaching tempest. Precisely at the time indicated-30 minute« before midnight there was a breathless lull which lasted for about a secoud, and then came a terrific gust of wind from the south-enst. The current of air appeared to proceed in a horizontal direction, and as though it were drhiug through a large tube, confining its force to a comparatively limited surface. The noise resembled rather the on-rushing of breakers than that of a current of wind j the confused sound which a...

LORD JOHN RUSSELL'S RETURN. (From the Spectator April 4.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 1 July 1857

LORD JOHN RUSSELL'S RETURN. (From the Spectator April 4.) The accidente which have attended the re- turn of Lord John Resell for the City of Loudon arc perhaps tL. i\"tn rather than the fruit of a renewed political interest. Lord John Russell himself ascribes his return to : the spirit of fairness," and the " spirit of independence," which have come forth to pro- tect him against an unfair attack and the con- stituency against an organised dictation. This may be a correct deseription,but the spirit was not powerful enough to draw forth the electors in very large numbers. Lord John did not poll more than 6308 votes ; the highest on the poll, Sir James Duke, only obtained 6664 Russell and Currie, the two opposing candi- dates, do not together make up the 11,000 votes that in moro animated elections have been given to one candidate. It is probable too, that Lord John'» 6,300 aro of too,mis- cellaneous a nature to indicate any political character in the vote. Many Torios are un- derstoo...

THE GREAT COMET [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 1 July 1857

THE GREAT COMET Regarding the nllegednppcaranco on the 13th instant (viz., to-morrow), of the great comet, which, it has been stated, is to carry destruc- tion in its train, and bring the world to an end, we find the following particulars in the London Morning Chronicle of 14th April. The perusal of this - article will, we should think,calm the fears of those who have become alarmed at the approaching visitant. The Chronicle says: The following letter has been communicated by theeminent German astronomer, Von Littrow, to the Vienna Gazette:-" Inquiries have so often been made of late nboutthegrent comet, the arrival of which has been expected, that we think it desirable to explain briefly the actual state of the case. About the middle of the last century observers fir3t perceived the resem- blance between the orbit of the comet of 1264 and of that of 155(5, and began to conjecture thnt they were in fact one and_ the same body, which accordingly might be expected to appear every 300 ...

COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENGE SYDNEY. " Empire " Office, June l8. The prospects of our future supplies of bread-stuffs and horse feed are exceedingly discouraging. While in »onie parts of the colony the ground has not been in s fit state to beiown on account of the heavy rains, in other parts it ba| not been found {iracticablo to carry on ploughing, cn account of lardtiessof the ground from continued dry weather. The standing crop» of maize are reported as being almost desttoyed, and what little comes lo market i» hardly fit for hone feed. By the last account from South Australia, we learn that the farmer» were beginning pa fear a dry season, and, should our »upplie» from thero be stopped, high prices are likely to rule; we hope, hoVever, to see rates con- tinue moderate, as our stocks are heavy, and" jre hear of several vessels being on the point of lea- ving for Chili.

THE THEATRE ROYAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 1 July 1857

THE THEATRE ROYAL. As we announced in our last issue, the Pro* prietor and the Lessee of tho Theatre Royal have completed their arrangements, and the Lease has been cancelled. So far, then, as Theatrical Representations are concerned, they may be considered at an end in Hobart Town for, at all events, a considerable time to come. It could hardly be expected that the late Lessee should decline accepting the terms which were placed at his option ; seeing, that, from the first, the Theatre Royal has been kept open, at a great personal pecuniary sacri- fice. The heavy losses the Lessee has sustai- ned in his earnest endeavors to cater for the intellectual enjoyment of the publio, however, have been borno hy hirflsolf oxolu,sively.;-not one shilling of debt, in connexion with the Theatre, remaining unliquidated.

MISCELLANEOUS SHIPPING THE PROSPECTS OF STEAM COMMUNICATION. (From the Friend of India.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 1 July 1857

MISCELLANEOUS SHIPPING THE PROSPECTS OF STEAM COMMUNICA TION. (From the Friend of India.) There is a hitch. The P. and U. Company has not united its interest« with those of the Austra- lian association. That placid harmony which for a moment threatened tho Europeans in Asia with a monoplr moro gigantic than the one they have felt so oppressive,teems to be interrupted. The dis- agreement has been published to the world at Bombay, where a new company has been started in " connexion with the Australian Mail Company," and in obvious rivalry to the P. end O. Tlie new association, with a capital of ten lakhs, is to run steamers between Bombay and Aden, and Bombay and Galle. The fuuds are to be supplied from .'England, and there seems to be every prospect of an active and earnest competition. The public will find it in their hearts to rejoice that the career of the great steam - company has at last met with a check. The experiment once tried in Bombay will be repeated in Calcutta, and the ...

In the sad consequences which follow this " accident" it will be seen that this case equals, if not exceeds, the unfortunate one of John Mark- ham, which has excited so much attention and commisseratiou: Mr. T-, a young innn of high character, with respectable family couuexions, was cm ployed for 12 years in one of the largest firms in "the ' Manchester line ia that city, the last three of which, as buyer for the estab- lishment ; in that capacity he laid out on an average from £40,000 to £50,000 a year.
