THE MERCURY WEDNESDAY MORNING, JULY 8th, 1857. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 8 July 1857
THE MERCURY WEDNESDAY MORNING, JULY 8th, 1857. THERE is one great evil, in connexion with the settlement of the Waste Landa question, which is growing upon us, and against the growth of which wo would warn tho puhlie. In doing so it is not our wish to restrain the fullest expression of opinion, although the evil to which we allude arises.in some measure, from that. When wo wrote upon this subject, and submitted our views for tho consideration of the Cabinet, and the Colony, wo foresaw that the question was liable to be mixed up with others ¡ and, wo cautioned our readers against it. Any one who travels beyond the narrowest limits of the question does an in- jury to it ; and wo cannot, therefore, too strongly deprecate the attempt which has been made to jumble up together matters which can havo but a very remote influence, if any, upon tho settlement of this highly important question. Ono of our Contem- poraries has run against a railway train, and fancies that a solution of the diff...

COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE ENGLISH. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 10 July 1857
COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE ENGLISH. Tho arrival of the Columbian at the Heads, with the English mails of the 16th May, was telegraphed at the commencement of business hours this morn- ing, and, as a matter of course, the usual suspension of trading operations ensued. The flour market was an exception to this rule. The demand for the Sydney market has caused an increased anima- tion, and a fair amount of business has been done in Adelaide first brands, at £24 per ton. There was some little speculating in butter and candles, but not to an extent to influence prices. The Economist of the 16th Moy has the follow- ing report of the state of the money market : The money market continues to be extremely tight. No bills are discounted below the Bank rate of 61, which is tho general standard. Yet the symptoms of a coming easier market have not dis- appeared. The arrivals of gold continue to be large, and some of it is going to the Bank. Our readers will learn with satisfaction that the European...
FISHERY AT PORT ARTHUR. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 10 July 1857
FISHERY AT PORT ARTHUR. WE porceivo that the Municipal Council have adopted a petition to the Governor, praying for tho removal of the embargo upon fishing in the waters of Port Arthur, aud, that per- mission be given to men of good character to fish in the bay and waters of the Peninsula. This is a move in the right direction ; for the best fish, withiu any reasonable distance of Hobart Town, are to bo found in these, hitherto, " tabooed" waters. There can be, we think, no reasonable ob- jection to tho granting of tho petition. Port Arthur, as a penal settlement, will soon be amongst the things that have been, and, even now, the character of the placo is so changed, as to render any particular supervision or res- traint utterly unnecessary. Thus, then, we seo no cause why the respectable aad indus- trious fishermen of our City should not have free access to the most favourable locality for the purposes of their vocation. The fish, now usually supplied, is of on in- ferior descripti...

THE MERCURY ^UOIÍSÜCD íHarrtmji, HSCtonesUap fc JTtíoaa FRIDAY MORNING, JULY 10th, 1857. THESE is considarable force in the argument that the .Grand Jury of the Colony should not at the same time be a political officer. That he may be so is one of the oversights in the Constitutional Act which timo must remedy. The powers possessed by the Grand Jury may be misused, indubitably : political differences are of all others the most likely to lead to such misuse ; in so far aro wa agreed with those who ltavo already urged this question most pertinaciously upon tho public attention* That tho present Attorney-General is a man of all others tho most likely to abuse his powers, we distinctly deny ; and for this reason -tho best of any-that he has so frequently proved his perfect superiority to such influ- ences and considerations. Some recent argu- ments advanced on this subject we deem most improperly urged for the same roason, but give tlioin no further notice, because they have proceeded f...

INSOLVENT COURT.-WEDNESDAY. Before Mr. Commissioner Fielding Browne. In re H. J. D'Emden. His Honor stated, on taking his seat, that he was prepared to give judgment in this Insolvency. As the evidence had been taken at intervals, it would be necessary for him to go through the whole of it. He would mention before doing so, that the Insol vent's schedule shewed his Liabilities to be about £5257; and his Assets about £1504. The Insol &nbsp; vent's discharge had been opposed by the Official Assignee, on behalf of the great body of the Credi- tors; by Mr. Anderson on the ground that the &nbsp; Insolvent had induced him to sign a bond under &nbsp; false pretences; and by Messrs. Brent & Westbrook on the grounds that the Insolvent, at the time that he incurred the debt, had no reasonable expectation of being able to liquidate the same. The grounds &nbsp; of opposition taken by these two Creditors, he was of opinion, had been sustained by the eviden...
