CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 13 April 1858

CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. By late files of Cape papers which have just come to hand we leam that the Kafir prisoners, of whose arrest and lodgement in the Amsterdam Battery we have published an account, had escaped. It appears that they were insufficiently guarded by those to whose custody they had been confided. The journals speak with some indignation of Kafirjprisoners beingintroduced amongst them at all, there being no place lor their security, and it being in violation of a principle long established. "We take the following graphic account of their escape and re-capture from the Commercial Advertiser of the 9th February : The Kafir prisoners lodged in the Amsterdam Battery, Cape Town, ran away in a body, on Thursday night or Friday morning. We use the words "ran away" rather than "escaped," or " broke loose," as it appears from all that is yet known, to have been a pretty simple case of absconding. They were insufficiently guarded. Some of these men have been known as cruel and wild. ...

MR. TAG RAGG AND HIS TAIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 13 April 1858

MR. TAG RAGG AND HIS TAIL. ] Another touch of enlightenment on the accommodation bill sys.em was given to the public yesterduy iu the Bankruptcy Court. Messrs, Sadgrove and Ragg, upholsterers of Finsbury, came up fur their certificate. Their transactions had been extensive, amounting in less than three years to little short of £200,000, and, their original capital having been below £2,000. they had supplied their wants by the wholesale creation of bills, for which they obtained discount fiom some of those quiet gentlemen in the metropolis who, without any ostensible occupation, employ their means in giving encouragement to traders of this des- cription. Mr. li^gg was the finaucier of the concern, and from the ability he displayed the public may hope to heal of him again whenever a new specula- tive mania shall arise. He evidently belongs to the class from whom share- holders of great companies delight to select their managers and would prob- ably, if his talents had found that ap- p...

ALDERMAN BARRETT. This illiterate person has seen fit ic his place in the Municipal Council to give expression to certain mendacious, state- ments concerning this journal; and although it is not our custom to honor such small fry as Alderman Barrett with any prominent notice, further than to expose his ignorance and fanaticism, still we shall not allow his impertinence to pass unreproved.

THE MERCURY TUESDAY, APRIL 13th, 1858. Vit have now reached the 13th day of the month and still there is no tidings of the ^English MalL It was anticipated that ita arrival this month, at all events, would have been an exception to the uninterrupted disappointment to which .ere have been all along doomed. The last trip from Suez made by the Columbian was one day within the con- tract time, and many of our merchants have, been sanguine in their expectations that «he would make her appearance on heir return voyage this trip with the same uncontract-like punctuality. She hat, however, vindicated the consistency of the Company to which she belongs. The maila by the Victoria, at least the Tasmanian portion of them, will leave here for Suez before her arrival, so that three weeks or a mouth will elapse be- fore the advices received by her can be answered. This is intolerable. By the last news from England we learned that the penalties incurred by the Cimpa:)y hal been enforced ; and that ...

WHY IS THERE TO BE AN INDIA BILL NEXT SESSION? (From the Saturday Review, Jan. 16.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 13 April 1858

WHY IS THERE TO BE AN IN- DIA BILL NEXT SESSION ? (From the Saturday Jlecteic, Jan. 16.) I Wjieí" Pomhal ~as asked by thp King what was to be done after the earth- quake at Lisbon, he answered, " Bury the dead, and find food for the living." The answer is said to have gained lum the perpetual confidence ol' his Royal master. Hj met, with calm good sense, the practical need of the occasion. Why cannot the British nation do the same on the ludían question ? An army and a province have broken out into a revolt, which has been defeated, but is not yet near quelled. The whole administra- tion of Bengal has been shattered to pieces. Our name has been foully dis- honoured in Hindustan. Surely the first objects to which we should give our whole attention and enerby are the ex- tinction of the revolt, the re-organization of our Government, the vindication of .mr name. To inflict punishment on the guilty, and restore law and order for the innocent, will be work enough for at least a year to c...

SUPREME COURT.— SATURDAY. [CRIMINAL SITTINGS.] (Before His Honor Sir Valentine Fleming, Knt., Chief Justice. The Court re-opened at 10 o'clock. OBTAINING MONEY UNDER FALSE PRE- TENCES. James Wynne was charged with ob- taining, on 9th February last, certain   monies from Bridget Kenny by false pretences. The prosecutrix is a lodging-house keeper, and resides in Collins street. On the day named in the information the prisoner went to her house and ob- tained change for a £1 note, which he assured her was good. After he had left, the prosecutrix shewed the note to a constable, who, seeing it was a flash one, went in pursuit of the prisoner, whom he apprehended in the Domain. As they were passing the quarry pri- soner threw a handful of silver into the water. The Inspector of Stock (Mr Dossiter) coming up, the constable shewed the note to him. Mr Dossiter said the note was bad, and on returning it to the constable prisoner snatched the note from his hand and swallowed it. T...
