"Wk have Melbourne Journals to tho first March. - Tlio state trials had been brought to a sudden and disreputable termination, by a sort of " want of confidence" movement on the . part of the - Attorney-General against the existing " panel." TRo matter caine before the Supremo Court on tho 27th ult., and is thus reported by tho Herald of the following day The Court was opened this morning at the usual hour. The Attorney-General said that he should not proceed further during the present sessions with the trials of the men charged with high treason. Ile did not wish to impugn the conduct of the jury who had tried the two men who had already been acquitted ¡ but looking to the fact that the prison. ers called no witnesses, and that two juries had given verdicts which implied that the crown had not made out a case against the prisoners ho shpuld not feel justilied in proceeding further with the trials of these men before the present jury panel.

EUROPEAN[?]SUMMARY to lOth December, [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 7 March 1855

EUROPEAN-SUMMARY to 10th December, The Whittington Club-house, in London, was destroyed, on Saturday night by a fire, which originated in the kitchen of the establishment. The plate and money have been dug up out of the ruins but the library and everything else are destroyed. The buildings and furniture were insured, but only to the extent of £2,500, which will not more than half cover the loss. The club has been removed for the present to the Norfolk Hotel, Surrey-Street, Strand. The club numbers 100 members. With this structure has fallen nil that remained of the once famous Crown and Anchor Tavern, the favorite scene of metropolitan political meetings during the close of the last, and the early years of the present, century. As a proof of the extraordinary activity of the Mint we may state that the total amount of gold coined from March 1851, till June 1854-, is no less than £28,000,000. For a similar period of time the cinage during the last century has never ex- ceeded £3,000,0...

Serai JüíUhí The Motiven Election. - We feel great pleasure in directing attention to tho liberal und enlightened address issued by Mr.WAGarduer to the electors ol'dornwall-it gives hopeful promise for" the future, to have men at last coming forward who pledge themstlves to advance the interests of the community as a whole, for it is only by advocating sound principles with reference to tile grout ques- tions of religious liberty, éducation for the masses, the land regulations as affecting the interests o'f tho ! industrious working classes, and the extension of municipal government, that the best interests of tile people can be secured. One i remark înoie we make from our personal knowledge. Mr. Gardner was one of the cailiest and most active agents in the coin law agitation and reform in the old country.

The Hobarton Mercury. FRIDAY MORNING, 9TH MARCH, 1855 [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 9 March 1855

Oie pftrtarton Ütevtuvj?« FRIDAY MORNING, flm MARCH, 1855 It is no trifling advantage of a free con- stitution, that the eubjeot possesses the right of freely eanvaasiug the mosf solejnn acts of the government and legislature under which he lives. For, so long as suchTight.exists, it íb not probable that errors in government or legislation will be tolerated for any considerable time, much less be perpetuated as a standing incubus on society ; and although? in their desire to effect that which they privately consider advantageous to the community, governors may not hesitate to apply even undue influence to a legislature, yet they will ever find in this right of free enquiry, a most Balutary check. If, there- fore, abuses are permitted to exist in any fre^ country, it must arise from the apathy of the people who suffer therefrom, or from the sand-rope character of the general community, which generally ren- ders it an easy prêy to the mere crafty or more talented individuals with winc...

Pr. Grecves gave notice of motion for the appointment of a committee to inquire into the best means of improving the postal communi- cation between these colonies and the United Kingdom.
