M. KOSSUTH v. DAILY NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 14 March 1855

M. KOSSUTH v. DAILY NEWS. M. Koesuth has replied to the Daily News that, to the surprise of its liberal readers who believed in its liberality-last week rated the policy of the Hungarians as declared in his St. Martin's hall speech. We extract the most telling points : "You say I overlook the fact, that to get at Poland from the Baltic or from the Black Sea, England and France would have lo cross the do- minions of Austria and Prussia. I suppose, sir, you will have some eight years old boy in your office, who went to school for half a year ; I wotild re- quest you to ask him, and be sure he will be able ?to enable you to make the great discovery-that an expedition landing at Riga or marking up Bes-' sarabia, has not to cross any dominions of Austria or Prussia for getting at the Russa Polish pro vinces, ..J " I expressed my opinion about the best mode of attacking Russia. You answer me, that "'this war ia undertaken in defence of the existing Ottoman empire." Why, sir, "where have y...

BUCKINGHAM ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 14 March 1855

BUCKINGHAM ELECTION. IF we are to judge of the liberty of which Mr. J. Curwen Walker is the advocate, we consider the electors of Buckingham have had a very fair sample on the day of nomination. This aspirant for legislato rial honore-this boasted son-of freedom crushes, through his friends and sup- porters, the very liberty it was his duty to protect. Mr. John Xord, a gentleman Dom and brought up in the colony, uni- versally respected and esteemed, of large property in the county of Buckingham, is prohibited from exercising the right to which, by virtue of that property, be is entitled-the right of proposing Dr. Crooke-Mr. Walker's friends liaving protested, On account of a most strange omission of Mr. Lord's name from the electoral roll, against his being heard. This strange proceeding, originating in an exasperated feeling of antici- pated defeat, could not at first be credited even by some of Mr. "Walker's supporters, but, when Mr. Lord was prevented from addressing the electors...

MEETING OF LICENSED VICTUALLERS. On Monday afternoon, a meeting of the trade, convened by circular, was held at Mr. C. Jones's, the Garrick's Head, Liverpool-street, for the pur- pose of adapting measures to re-organise the Licen- sed Victuallers' 'Society. There were about forty persons present, and Alderman Simms was unani- mously voted to the chair. The Chairman briefly explained the objects of the meeting, and urged the propriety of a firm and permanent union of the trade to protect their inte- rests, and to oppose the oppression to which the innkeepers were exposed by the present licensing laws. Mr. Todd fully concurred in the urgent necessity for unanimity and strength to meet and stem the aggression to which the publicans were subjected and had great pleasure in proposing the first reso- lution : - " That to enable the Van Diemen'a Land Licensed Victuallers' Society again to become a really use- ful institution, it is necessary that the majority of the innkeepers of the Hobar...

«oral ficto* " THE ENGLISH BANKS" have not, nor as we learn, do not intend to subscribe to the Tasmanian Patriotic Fund. There is some paltry excuse about a subscription by the banks in London, and therefore that is sufficient for all. We know nothing of the English banks or how they conduct their business, but we do know that the Union Bank and Bank of/Australasia-.here, are deriving large,profils from the colonists, and why they de- cline to subscribe to the fund any more than the Commercial or Bank of "Van Diemen's Land, we are at a loss to guess.
