THE ELECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 16 March 1855

THE ELECTIONS. NoiwiTHSTASDiiro all the serio-comic, but ponderous opposition of the Adver- tiser, the fine lnelo-dramatic pathos of the ' Colonial Times and the brainless braying of the Courier, Arthur Perry and Vbt Crooke, " the peojde's choice," have been most triumphantly returned as members of the legislature, for the City of Hobart Town and the County of Buckingham1 We sincerely congratulate both the citi- zens of Hobart Town, and the staunch men of Buckingham upon the result ; we do not wish, however, now that thecontest is at an end, to disparage the disappointed candidates, nor to endeavour to lessen them in the estimation of the community : we rejoice in this great 'result, because a principle has been maintained, and firmly acted upon ; in carying out that principle, a glorious victory haa been achieved, and it is with no small complacency that we look back to tho prominent and success- ful part which the Mercury has taken in the contest, and that, too, against the combin...

To ,the Editor of the Mercury. Sir,-As'sorrc misunderstanding unfortu- nately, arose at the meeting heldjast Satur- day in aid of llie Patriotic Fund, and as I fear a letter of minc, addressed to the chair- man, might seem to bear on some expres- sions delivered hy some of the speakers in the early part of the meeting-whether cor- rectly understood or not, I cannot tell-but which, it appears, gave displeasure, I deem it right to print the letter, and leave the general contents of it to the judgment of the public. There ii, however, one expression that, in the hurry of penning tlie letter, I deeply regret having used, and I willingly e nbrace this opportunity (if you will permit me) to stone for it. You will find, when speaking of the terri- ble loss of the 23rd and 33rd regiments, I paid, the- 23rd should have been termed the " Irish" instead of " Welsh" Fusilier;. In stating this admission, I can only' add to my regtet that I had not the slightest intention of making any invidious ...

Cfte, IBotavtott J&weuvj?« FRIDAY MORNING, MARCH 16,1855. Tu CEE is not a solitary individual in this Island who will not most nobly respond to the call made, to swell by the exertion of private benevolence, the PATRIOTIC FUND, established under ourmost gra- cious Sovereign's Commission, for the re- lief of the "Widows and Orphan» of the "brave men who may fall in the present war. The vast assemblage of Saturday last, and the-hearty response to the call made, the call of duty, attest our loyalty to our Queen, and country ; and our unanimous opinion aa to the righteousness of the war iu which the armies of England, and France are now engaged. In this distant corner of the globe let us join in our abhorrence of that accursed system of despotism which" deforms and corrupts human nature, which Bets treaties at defiance, which would blot from the mass of the world independent ^nations, and which setting liberty at nought, urged Britain to the present contest witli a mon- ster who...

On Tuesday next, it seems, he is to impeach Lord Aberdeen of having con- spired »vith Menschikoff to save Sebastopol or of having interfered to avert its destruc- tion, through an over-credulous confidence in the good intentions of the Czar, during the last three months, towards this country and France. Seriously, why is it-do people suppose nnd in what spirit, that government has cal- led parliament together next week, at the present unusual season ? Is it only to give Mr. Disraeli and other gentlemen who differ from what they themselves have dis- covered to be tlic policy of government, the opportunity of benefitting (he country with their disinterested advice ! or is it not ' rather in the plain, practical, conviction in which the whole nation shares-many of| Mr. Disraeli's former colleagues, perhaps Mr. Disraeli himself,...
