LATEST EUROPEAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 1 July 1857

LATEST EUROPEAN. An Eccentric TitAvnr.r.na.-At the Liver- pool Assizes was tried O'Callaghan v. Clanery. This was an action of trespass, in which the plaintiff complained that, being a traveller at the inn of the defendant, he had been illegally turned out and refused t bat accommodation to which ho was entitled by the law of England. The defendant pleaded by way of justification, that the plaintiff had misconducted himself while in his house as a gne»t, and had behaved in such an extraordinary manner as to render his removal necessary. It appeared that the plaintiff", who was lately a coptain in the 32nd Regiment, was in treaty in August last for the hire of a furnished house, near Bures St. Mary, on the border of Essex and Suffolk, and on the 30th of that month he proceeded to that town, where he was a stranger, and took up his quarters at the Queen's Head Inn, kept by the defendant, who, having formerly been in the police, had married the widow of ihe former landlord, and taken t...

IMPORTANT COAL DISCOVERY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 3 July 1857

IMPORTANT COAL DISCOVERY. A communication has been made by Mr. Swift to Messrs. Todd, Coram, and Lomas, of the dis- covery by him of a seam of Coal, which is likely-« not only from its position, but from the sample which has been exhibited to these gentlemen-to prove highly important. The place at which the discovery ha* been made is called Police Point, and Is situated im. mediately opposite to Port Cygnet. It is a fuut foot seam, and the coal has been pronounced of « splendid bituminous character-very fur superior to any which lus been hitherto discovered in the Australia». It is stated that a shaft could be tunk within 30 feet of the beach ; whilst, by running out a jetty of the length of 40 feet, a vessel draw- ing 14 feet water, would be enabled to lay along, side and load. Need we say anything more ? TUi» discovery has certainly been very opportune.

Into this shop, -the other day rushed the Baron, amiably and affectionately asking after the health of the owner, and hoping he wab particularly well, as likewise his respected and much-eiteemed bet- ter-half, together with the extremely interest- ing offspring of their connubial cooing.
