THE REFRACTORY AMBASSADOR. (From the Times.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 11 January 1858

THE REFRACTORY AMBASSADOR. (From the Times.) What are we to do with a refractory Ambassador ? France and England a'enow perfectly agreed on the Danu bian Principalities question ;the countries are agreed, the sovereigns are pgrced,the Primo Ministers are agreed, and every- body is satisfied, but Lord Stratford de Redcliffe will not consent. If this is not a strong case of ego H Hex meus, it is at any rate ultra-patriotism. Our j Ambassador differs in opinion fr.im his j country, and of course it is bcttei' for the country that it should give way. He will not let us expose ourselves, or dis- credit ourselves ; he loves his country too much to let it judge (or itself. No, he knows much hotter than we do how to manage things in the East, and we shall, whether we will or not, have the benefit of his grept experience. He is aware that he is throwing pearls before swine, that we shall not thank him for it,and that we simply want him to obey orders, but be will not let us command him to ou...

IRELAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 11 January 1858

IRELAND. Wo take the following from a Li ver pool paper of Saturday, tho 10 th Octo- ber : The Dublin Commission Court is to open on the 2(5fch instant, and it is ex- pected that Spollen. will be put upon his trial, on the chaige of robbing the Mid- land Railway Company, on the follow- ing Wednesday. ? Since his committal to prison, Spollen appeals as much at his eise as the discipline to which he is subjected would permit ; he seems to have a disinclination to enfcv'r into con- versation, except with his eldest son, who visits him once a week. The Chic! Baron and Baron Richards are to be the presiding judges, the last named taking the place of Baron Pennefather, who, in addition to being blind, is too feeble to undergo the fatigue of the Commission. Indeed it is once nrore confidently rumoured that the veneia blu Baron, who was called to the bar in 1705, and is now approaching his 00th year, will retire from the bench on the opening of the term in November next, in which case it is...

THE MERCURY [PUBLISHED DAILY.] MONDAY, JANUARY 11, 1858. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 11 January 1858

THE MERCURY [PÜBLISIIEU .DAILY.] MONDAY, JANUARY 11, 1838, TUE operation of the Convicts' Preven- tion Act has not been so beneficial as the Victorians anticipated. There have been, during the whole time it has been in force, scarcely a do¿on escaped con- victs returned to this Culony ; whilst, on the other lund, a large amount of cruel injustice has been committed as a set-off against the pollution which these low men might have carried about with them. The Act was harsh, illiberal, and narrow-minded ; it was based upon an assumption of virtue in themselves which had no existence ; it was opposed both in the letter and in the spirit to the enlightenment of the nineteenth cen- tury ; whilst on the other hand, it ha1 been fruitful of more injustice than it has been of advantage. The case which has jubt arisen is another proof of the wrongs which cannot fail to be inflicted by legislation based upon feeling rather than upon reason. Tho spirit manifested in this notorious Act has been ...

LORD ELGIN IN CHINA. (From the London Times.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 11 January 1858

LORD ELGIN IN CHINA. (From the London Times.) Lord Elgin is rather in the position of Baron Munchausen, when on turning round the Baron found the hind quar- ters of his horse gone, and that he was riding on the front half only, the violent slam of a malignant gate having cut the animal in two in the middle. The Ambassador to China looks back and sees his army—the train and long array which should have backed him up—the hind quarters of the Plenipotentiary— vanished. He has only possession of the horse's head—the front, or diplo- matic half, the official mission, ceremo- nial state, and dignity of the Ambassa- dor. The Indian Mutiny is the gate which has slammed violently upon his Lordship's charger, and cut it in two. Under these circumstances what must the Plenipotentiary to China do ? Doubtless there are not wanting at Hongkong those who would still urge an immediate attack upon Canton, in spite of the small force to which the Indian necessity has reduced us there. Canton is calle...

SWING BRIDGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 11 January 1858

SWING BRIDGE. We some time ago pointed out to the proper authorities, tho great accommo- dation which our Merchants, and others having business on the wharves, would receive by the construction, over the mouth of the Constitution Dock, of a slight Swing Bridge ior the use, oi course, of foot passengers alone. Throughout tho whole day a coutiuual chain of communication is kept up be- tween the Old, the Franklin, and the New Wharves-the two latter of which are divided from the former by the mouth of the dock -thus necessitating a circuitous walk round the whole ot the dock to enable our Merchants and others to accomplish the distance of two or three yards. Wo really cannot understand why auy dittiuulty should be raised agaÍDst erecting a light awing bridgo over the mouth of the dock. Tlio expense of such a work would be so trifling-more especially when compared with the great accommodation it would afford to so large a number ol'our Citizens, that we should have thought its importance...

LONDON WOOL REPORT. November 14, 1857. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 12 January 1858

"LONDON WOOL REPORT. November 11, 185" During the last three weeks our market lias remained exceedingly inactive, and a ' general tendency was manifest in the north to quit stocks of the raw muterai in antici. patnui of a considerable decline at our present sales. This feeling wm daily con- firmed by fresh accounts from America, and i lie failures at home, coupled with a gradual though rupid rise in the Bank rate to the unprecedented amount of 10 per cent. Such n combination of circumstances produced s most depressing effect, and brought business to a complete stundstill in the manufacturing distncts. The various rumours afloat lea many to anticipate a decline of 4d to 6i per lb., and in consequence the attendance of buyers, both home mid foreign, was greater thnii at any former period. The first tale which took place on the 12th November quieted many, for after an attempt on the part of some buyers to bring down prices by low bids,the foreig.i buyers commenced, and the result was a...
