Elie îfctf kari on ¿$¡terrur¿n WEDNESDAY MORNING, MARCH 21,'1855 THE news of the cessation of direct attain communication between England and Australia, coming, as it did, simulta- neously with the announcement of the in- tention of the Peninsular and Orential Company to discontinue their bi-monthly steamer tto .Melbourne and Sydney,, has .forced upon the attention of the colom&t the necessity of providing some local sub- stitute fcr ihe arrangements thus aban- doned. It is quite unnecessary for us to eil ita upon the importance of the ßubjeet in a commercial point of view, or gof its bearing upon the mercantile interests of the different Aus- tralian communities. The advantages to be derived from the rapid and frequent transmi&sion of intelligence between the colonies and the mother country must be obvióos to all. It would however be but * a very limited and partial view of tho question, to look upon it solely in relation to matters of commerce. The progress of tho ...

MACQUAHIIS HARBOUR EXPEDITION [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 21 March 1855

MACQUAHIIS HARBOUR EXPEDITION <x Tu« party under the direction of Mr. Smith, relumed to Ilobarton by the schooner Gem, on Saturday evening last They have not >uc ceedcd in finding Gold, but their operations have been c «lined chiefly to the country at the upper part of the Harbour. Up the river Gordon sinking to any depth was found im practihle, the soil being sandy anil alluvial,and the water invariably, filling the hole, when but 2 or 3 feet deep. Ia the neighbourhood of Mount Direction, several lióles were carried down to a considerable depth, but at 20 feet or thereabouts, it was necessary to stay operations, as the water gushed in so abundantly that the holes were quickly filled. On the Oat between Birch's Inlet, and the Gordan, the sinking was impeded from these causes, but one or two holes wer«: carried down between 20 and 30 feet. The gullies round Mount Sorell and Kelly's Basin were ulso prospected, and in Brisbane Bay where the specimens were ori- ginal ly ex...

POLAND AND OUR PEOPLE, (From the Sun, December 1) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 21 March 1855

POLAND AND OUR PEOPLE, (From the Sun, December 1 ) Poland is to become the test of English statesmanship-the test both of its heart and of its capacity. The annual meeting of the Poles, consigned by Cabinets sneeringly to the benevolence of the lamented Lord Dud- ley Stuart, is elevated this year by events to the highest significance. It seems to have survived for a time like this-survived to rebuke the cold-heartedness of our poli- ticians, yet to offend them an invaluable light to their path. This year, also the meeting itself was marked by two striking facts. It had to commemorte the.death of a truly noble martyr to the Polish cause and to listen to the eloquence of a new but mighty champion, in the person of the great Hungarian exile. And while the evidence was being furnished to "every hearer ¿hat ' Kossuth has not been studying military science altogether in vain, it must have glanced across the thoughts of many that Providence may have been raising up the man as necessary to ...
