RO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 8 October 1860
I TO *HlS timTOlt Of I'll« MEfeCÜitf. I Sir.-In your issue of this day I find the fol- lowing passage in a letter addressed to you by the Government printer, Mr. Barnard. " One thing at least is certain, that should " silence be still inflexibly maintained " the conclusion to bo drawn will be most " significant of the truth of the surmise." I cannot view the foregoing quotation in any other light than in that of a threat. I decline to nccede to Mi*. Barnard's wishes as regards the information he desires, and which it was open to him to have sought from me in a personal inter- view-or by letter, confidentially or officially before addressing you. This Mr. Barnard has not done-it is now too late. It would seem to me that Mr. Barnard finds he cannot attach blame to me (for the communication I made to my esteemed friend, Dr. Bedford). He therefore attempts to indemnify himself by en- deavoring to wound ^my feelings as a father by a gratuitous attack on my boy, (a proceeding I will not d...

THE MERCURY. MONDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 8th, 1860. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 8 October 1860
THE MERCURY. MONDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 8th, I860. The Colonial Treasurer laid upon the table of the Assembly on the 25th ultimo a Return shewing the amount of Debentures authorised to be raised, the amount redeemed, the amount unissued, and the amount outstanding ou the 30th September 18G0, as well as what the total debt of the Colony would have been had all the debentures authorised to be raised been now outstanding. This Iieturn embraces under separate heads those debentures whick have been made chargeable on the Land Fund and on the General Revenue respectively. To the last of the above heads we need scarcely refer. We are not so anxious to know what our debt would have been under certain circumstances as what it actually is. This is a subject in which all of us take, or ought to take, a lively interest. The word debt has an ominous sound whick few men like when it has a personal application, direct or indirect, to them« selves. A few days ago we endeavoured to point out that, afte...

NATIVE WEALTH UNDER BRITISH RULE. (FROM THE FRIEND OF INDIA.) [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 9 October 1860
NATIVE WEALTH UNDER ? BRITISH RULE. (FROM THE FRIEND OF INDIA.) , ; ; A correspondent of a Bombay journal, in referring to the aversion of natives, who have acquired enormous wealth through the protection of the British Government, to contribute to the maintenance of that organisation through, the instrumentality, of which alone they have prospered, gives us some curious, informa- tion as to the rate at which wealth has accumulated under British ' protection ¡in the Western Presidency. When the Island was made over as a dowry 'to the Queen of England two centuries a ago, the whole property in it was considered worth ¿È2834. By 16G8 it was estimated at £6496 ; so lateasl812ithad risen to only .£130,260. Behold the spring it has taken within less than half a century. In 1858 the fixed property within the Island! in- cluding merchandise in store, was estimated to be worth more than five millions sterling. It we turn to > the population returns we find results still more extraordinar...
ABANDONMENT OF THE BANKRUPTCY BILL. [TIMES.] [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 9 October 1860
..... .ABANDONMENT; »; I OF THE BANKRUPTCY BILL. .l.'l « ?-_'I li" 1 I , [times.] , , 1 The countiy will learn with much less satis-i faction than w as manifested by the House of; Commons-» hich invariably cheers every infi- ni at iou of abandoning a Bill at this period of the Session-that the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Bill is abandoned. We bad hoped that we should have been able to show this one com- pleted measure as the result of this laborious Session. We had even believed that out of the mass of intcntious we should have had this one performance. But it is not i to be. The Ses- sion is to be barren of all good. The Attorúcy Geüérnl has succeeded in gett- ing the principle of his Bill affirmed ; he had passed all his money clauses through the perilous stage of the Committee ; lie-seemed to have tided over all tin most difficult rocks iu his course ; when suddenly, upon the occurrence of a little dunder, which, as he himself says, was not very fatal even at its worst, he de liber...

COMMERCIAL. HOBART TOWN MARKETS. Mercury Ofice, Monday Afternoon. Tlie wheat market is quiet, and 8s. 3d. is quoted as the market figure. Oats and barley are very seldom inquired for. Hay comos in abundantly, but prices are un- changed, loose still fetching from X5 10s. to M 10s. per ton according to quality, and country pressed from jCü to JCC. Potatoes are stationär}', at Ü8 to £9 per ton ; not mi'th was doing to-day. ' Fine flour is steady at JÊ20 per ton, with a fair local demand. Bran Is. 4d. to Is. 7d. per bushel. The India arrived from Manilla to-day, and, amongst other cargo, brings 9097 bags of sugar, and 411 bags of coffee.
THE AGAPEMONE AGAIN. (PROM THE TIMES.) [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 9 October 1860
THE AGAPEMONE AGAIN. 1 ' ' ' (PROM THE TIMES.) .v The founder of the Agagomone will, weare happy to say, be compelled to surrender a portion of his ill-gotten gains. Yice-Chancellor Stuart gave judg- ment yesterday in the case of " Nottidge v. Prince," declaring that the transfer of stock belonging to . the late Louisa Jane Nottidge into the name of the defendant was improperly obtained, and must be - ' «et aside ; that the stock must be transferred to the - legal personal representative of Miss Louisa Not- tidge, and all the dividends accrued since her death must be paid to the plaintiff; and the defendant must pay the costs of the suit. It is not a phrase of course when we say that we congratulate the public on this judgment. The Court of Chancery . has always been distinguished by a breadth of view . , and a practical good sense in dealing with the questions which como before it, and never have these qualities been moro conspicuous than in the decision of which weare speaking. It...

THE MERCURY. TUESDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 9th, 1860 [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 9 October 1860
THE MERCURY. TUESDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 9th, 18(50 I -«. It is to le hoped that no time will be lost, either by the Corporation, the Government, or the Hospital Board, in proceeding with the Public Works, for which the expenditure of money has been sanctioned by Parliament. Tho instalment provided for, is still a very small one of the many improvements that are loudly called for, by considerations equally of utility and adornment. We have done little to provide, for the suitable accommodation of- Uw institutions we possess, ruo attics and back« quarters in which even some of our most im- portant departments are compelled to take refuge, are a reproach upon our public spirit. What more pertinent illustration could we adduce than the confined and inconvenient suite of upper rooms, where we require a branch of the civil service, upon whose healthy activity the prosperity iud development' of the Coluiiy so greatly depend, as tho Survey Departmeut, to domicile and Ian« guish, " ciibbed, ca...

THE SUBMARINE CABLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 9 October 1860
I THE SUBMARINE CABLE. A favourable oppportunity of providing for the renewal of our telegraphic communication with the Colonies on the other side of the Straits, is suggested in the followiug article which we quote from the £. A. Register. As the Colo sm Treasurer is about to visit Melbourne with a view to effect some arrangements on the subject with the Victorian Government, we commend the suggestion to his consideration :-. " Our suggestion that tho Government of Tas- mania, who are in want of a submarino telegraph cable, should be invited to purchase the one which is no longer required for Kangaroo Island, was re- cently urged upon the Government by Mr. Milne. But the lreasurer, in asking for the supple- mentary vote of £4,200 to pay for that article and for the lantern oidered with it, said there wem objections to this mode of disposing or the cable ; that it would be useless to import such au article with a view of selling a portion of it to Tas inania; and that it would have ...
