The number of hales comprised in cata- logues consisted of-13,141 bales of Austra- lian ; 8037, Port Phillip ; 5502, Van Diemen's Land; 2731 Adelaide; 3141 New Zealand; 410, Swan River ; 18,200 Capo-total, 52,065 bales ; of which about 2500 bales were from second, hands. The attendance of buyers at the opening sale was large, and spirited competition exis- ted for all descriptions at an advance of Id to LJd. The principal buyers for the north, who had been looking for recent rates scarcely be- ing maintained, were surprised at the tone of the room and held aloof for the first few nights anticipating that, immediate wants being sup- plied, consumers would be less anxious-, and that the rise established would be lost. The anticipation was soon dispelled, for our own manufactures and the continental buyers took eagerly each night's sa...

THE MERCURY. $hriiIig»Ttt fHonttagi tjgäclmegtiag & jFrfaag WEDNESDAY MOR.VLVG, FEBRUARY l8, 1857. A few attendances at the House of Assembly would go far to induce an entire acquittal of the Ministry, in the mind of any reasonable man, from many of the charges brought against them One could not accuse them of chicanery in a body so stolid as to be inaccessible to the finesse which such an accusation implies. One could scarcely hope to prove any inconsistency in their conduct, in the house, when the house itself is so vacillating as to relieve tliem entirely on that score. As to ignorance-incom petency-inaptitude-the displays of either or of all three combined, that the ministry could make, could not surpass, those which are almost nightly exhibited by individual members as well as by the house collectively. We are no admirers of the career followed lately by Mr Champ and Mr Smith, but we are bound to ad- mit that in clearness of apprehension-in speaking to the purpose-in al...

THE NEW SLAUGHTER HOUSE JETTY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 18 February 1857

THE NEW SLAUGHTERHOUSE JETTY. There aro some metí so unhappily consti- tuted by nature, that they cannot keep out of mischief. Limit them as you will, enlargo or diminish their opportunities as you may, they never fail to go the worst possible way to make tho least of au advantage, and the worst of a misfortune. And as of men, so of institutions. Sjme seem destined to go in precisely the opposite direction to that which they were primarily intended to go-to magnify the evils which wo are told are in- separable from the official constitution and lessen the merits which it possesses. We have had not a few oxamples'of this kind of perver- sity hero, and we scorn likely to have them perpetuated : but wero they all abolished to- morrow they would leavo abundant me norials of their existence, to puzzle the spectators at whose cost they have beeo set up-though seldom for utility and almost never for orna- ment.

WHAT WILL BUCHANAN DO. From the Times. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 20 February 1857

WHAT WILL BUCHANAN DO. From the Times. What is Mr. Buchanan to do ? Is he to make KnuBas slave or free ? If the former, he will be branded as a traitor from the north ; if the latter, he will be denounced u» a r« negade by the south. Tho position is delicate, and the decision is ticklish, but it must be made ; it cannot be temporised with or postponed. Tlie demands of the crisis are urgent and exigent, and the result of the decision is hatred from one part of his sup- porters or infamy among tu« other. What higher object cao. ambition have than to place its votary between the horns of so blessed au alternative ? Again, from whom shall Buchanan form his cabinet ? Shall he select as his advisers the disuniouists and filibusters of the south, or tho men of tlie north,-oppose tho foreign ag- gression, and the war which it leads in its train, aud desire above all things", to main- tain the integrity of the union : or shall he, like Mr. Pierce^ blend the discordant ele- ments together, an...
