TO-MORROWS MEETING [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 9 March 1855

TO-MORROWS MEETING That feeling of devoted loyalty and attach- ment which the colonists hear toward* their Queen will, we trust, he fully exemplified hy a crowded assemblage in the Theatre to-mor- row. What true British heart dues not heat with emotion at the strudle ¡ii which our army is at present engaged ? '- ' There is not a man in Tasinaniu who docs not heartily sympathise with the noble and brave forces now so severely suffering from the horrors of war, and the equally devastating horrors of cholera in the Crimea, and who have gone forth to fight the buttle of freedom and of right. Let that feeling extend to the fatherless and the orphan and to the widow of the British soldier and sailor. Let Tasmania raise such a fund as will at once exhibit her patriotism and her benevolence. The meeting for a similar help under the late Mayor shewed in its results our true British feeling. Let our character be similarly maintained at the approaching one. Let a crowded house and a full subsc...

Dr. Bedford luid no band, and displayed only two small flags, inscribed somewhat aristocrati- cally, v. ith the candidate's coat-of-arms. Some of the rosettes worn by Mr. Perry's friends were extremely elegant} amongst others we particularly noi'iccd those of Messrs. W. Robert- son, Samuel M osea, Charles Degraves, and P. W...

Commercial Intelligence. SYDNEY. Friday Evening, March 2. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 12 March 1855

Ocmmemal ïntdUctenre* SYDNEY. . Friday Evening, March 2. i Nothing of importance has been done this week. Speculation seems to have entirely ceased, and the demands for legitimate trade too, have become most limited. Current quotations, notwithstanding, are firmly maintained, and the market, upon the whole, assumes a brighter aspect than it has done the last three months. Thus, under all circumstances, we should think, there is but little probability of a re- action from : indeed, the fact of nearly every des- cription of merchandise still selling below the actual cost would, in ordinary cases, be a sufficient gua - rantee. " A larger amount of merchandise has changed hands tA auction this week, and the prices obtained show, in lnltny instances, a decided improvement. .' In real property and shaies but very little has been redone. Friday evening, March 2. The Mills-Messrs Barker and Co : A fair sup- ply of wheat continues to arrive ; prices have rather ? receded, and may now be quot...

Moral üeto* LoDOiKd-HousES'.-By the new Act of Council the Police Magistrate is empowered to grant a license for the keeping of a lodging-house, and to institute certain regulations to be observed by the keepers icspectively ! but, strange to say, he has no'authority to refuse a license. Here, then, is another specimen of the wise and consistent law making of our Legislative Council. PATRIOTIC FUNU.-Contribution by Public Com- panies.-We observe that a meeting has been called of the Tasmanian Insurance Company, to take into consideration a contribution from the general stock of the company towards the Pstriotie Fund. There can be little doubt that the other public1 companies, as wel] as the banks, will imitate this good example, and contribute towards the comfort of the bereaved widows and children of the soldiers slain in the war.

Cfte ftobKrton ffîcttuvp* MONDAY MOItNING, 12TH MARCH, J855 IN times of political excitement, many small matters unconnected with the en- graving topic of the hour, are apt to be passed over with a very cursory mention. Buch appears to be the reason why certain late proceedings of 'thj Total Abstinence Society have not attracted the amount of attention to which their quite novel and rather startling character clearly entitles them. It is amidst the jar and din of two contested elections, the oratorical flourish- ing of candidates^ and the bustle of can- vassers, that the society has seen fit to organise a committee for the truly Chris tiatfaud charitable purpose of watching their frail and erring neighbours, and of compelling them into the paths of tein Ïerance and godliness by main force, 'his they propose to accomplish by means of informations, suuunónses,aud other legal pleasantries of au equally jocose character; and, it must be obvious to all, that such witty doings cannot fail...

NEW ZEALAND. Destructive Earthquake at Wellington We copy from the New Zealand Spectator of the 25th January, the particulars of an earthquake which visited the province of Wel- lington, on the 23rd of that month :-" On Tuesday night the town of Wellington suffered from the calamitous visitation of an earth- quake, as severe and as destructive in its effects as those which previously occurred in the year 1848. During the day there had been a strong Wind from the north-west, with heavy showers about one o'clock. Towards evening the wind fell, and it again commenced raining ; the rain ceased about seven o'clock and the weather was still and calm. The first shock which was very severe and of about two minutes duration, occurred about ten minutes past nine o'clock, p.m. ; and was followed at intervals of a few minutes with sharp shocks, the earth during the greater part of the night having a tremulous motion-. The shocks appeared to come from the north west. The injury which has been oc...
