R E V I E W. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 10 July 1857

E E YI E W. " Political Tract for the Times, Discursive, Suggestive, and Practical, by SALLUST. Tasmania, 1857. This little tract, of 16 p.p. 8vo., has been lying on our table and unnoticed for some weeks past. It deserved more hospitable treatment, and yet we scarcely feel that wo owe an apology to its unknown author. Po- litical tracts and pamphlets are so frequently things of the merest ephemeral interest,-and so often deriving that only from their virulent personalities,-that we could not expect this one to prove-as it is-an esoeption to the general rule, We have praise and blame to award the author, whoever he may be. On the principle which dictates the administration of the lump of sugar after rhubarb, we reserve the praise. Our blame, however, is but light, and refers much more to the manner than to the matter of the tract. The author affects a weakness of style, and a dread of contemporary criti- cism : we tell him honestly, he does himself, and,-what is of far more consecnu...

MEADOWS'S CHINESE EMPIRE (From the Times.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 10 July 1857

MEADOWS'S CHINESE EMPIRE* (From the Times.) According to our looso barbarian notions the Chinese Empire is an overgrown anomaly, and therefore there is a prima facie propriety in its illustration on a voluminous scale. The bulky octavo before us is only a portion of the work which its author eventually contem- plates, and which will probably attain its completion when we are gathered to our fathers. Moreover, this octavo corresponds with its subject in a variety of characteristics which are not usually compatible, and which we shall not attempt fully to specify. It is studious and accurate, like the products of 1 Chinese penmanship, it is quaintly luminous like a Chinese Untern ; it is destitute of pro- portion and perspective as a Chinese picture, and it is quite as involved as a Chinese puzzle. Thus, for example, after reading the preface, we are directed to an essay at the end of the volume, we are then required to proceed to a paulo-ante-penultimate chapter, then to return to th...

NIGHT LICENSES. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 10 July 1857

NIGHT LICENSES. Is hazarding the remarks and suggestions we are now in the course of making, wo do so with no wish to be dictatorial, or to arro- gate the possession of any influence to wbicli we cannot legitimately lay claim. It is our earnest desire to see the new Licensed Vic- tualler's Act founded upon principles of equity; and wo givo the Cabinet every credit for being animated by the same spirit. The present tyrannical Bill has been allowed to remain in force too long already. It is a disgrace to auy civilized code. The very foundation of it pre-snpposes the trade to be a dishonest one ; and those who engage in it, to be roen of immoral character. Instead of remedying Buch evils-presuming they existed -tho present Act is well calculated to stere . otype them. The restrictions are absolutely repulsive, and preclude any really respect- able citizen, from embarking in the business. We have all along held the opinion that a trade requiring those who follow it to subject themselves...

MILITARY INSURRECTION IN BENGAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 10 July 1857

MILITARY INSURRECTION IN BENGAL. The most important news received by the present arrival is the intelligence of the revolt of several native regimentsatDelhiandMeerut. The insurgents had obtained possession of the former city, and massacred a considerable portion of the European population. At the latest advices about 12,000 of mutineers, after killing their officers, had obtained possession of the city of Delhi. An overwhelming force of European troops were concentrat- ing around that city. Meerut also fell into the hands of the mufciueers, while Calcutta itself was at one time menaced.

GRAND FETE AT BOA VISTA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 10 July 1857

GRAND FETE AT BOA VISTA. On Wednesday night the most magnificent fete, ever witnessed in this Colony, was given by Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Moses at their sub- urban residence, Boa Vista, New Town. The preparations and arrangements for this splendid affair were on the most extensive and elegant scale, and every appliance and means, which wealth could furnish, were lavished with un- sparing profusion to render the fete as attract tive as possible. The disposal of the fine apartments of the mansion, under the supervision of Mrs Moses, and competent assistants, was managed with much taste and artistic effect. The ball-room, 130 feet by 40, was constructed in the Veran- dah, fronting Hobart Town, and was gorge- ously decorated with flags, flowers, evergreens, chandeliers, beautiful lamps, and large mirrors, which reflected in resplendent lustre, the beau- tiful forms, aud objects of art, with which the room was ornamented. Couches and otto- mans, covered with crimson satin damask, wore place...
