LATEST EUROPEAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 12 July 1857

LATEäTT-EUROPEAN; Os the 15th May Mr. Montgomery Martin presented a petition to the House of Commons, praying that tho'new Reform Bill may bo so framed as to make provision for tho represen- tation of the Colonies in the Imperial Parlia- ment. The petition does not develope Mr. Martin'« views in detail, but we believe that his scheme contemplâtes 20 Colonial represen- tatives : five for Canada and ita tributaries, five for New South Wales, three for the West Indies, three for the Cape, and four for the Me J i kerran can and Channel Islande belonging to Great Britain. This proposal seems to us open to objection on tho ground of the relative numbers being disproportionate ; but we ap- prehend that there exist other and graver objections to a project which appears on the face of it just and reasonable. The distance between the Colonies and the mother country would ' render parliamentary representation, subject as it nould be to parliamentary iuflu onocs and parliamentary vicissitudes, ...

THE MILITARY INSURRECTION IN BENGAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 12 July 1857

THE MILITARY INSURRECTION IN BENGAL. We give full particulars of this srrious affair as promised in our last : TIIE MASSACHE AT SIEEEUT. . The following is from Meerut, dated May 12th :-On Sunday, the 10th, between five and six o'clock in the evening, I was in my bungalow in the rear of the lines of the J 1th N.I., where I have resided, since my .arrival at the station, when, as I was dressing, prepara- tory (to* going out for a rido with Colonel FiniiU, .of the 11th N.I.,my attention was directed to my servants, and those in the neighbouring compounds,- going down towards the front 'of our enclosure, and looking "steadily, into the line-: of thellth,whenceabuzzing, murmuring noise proceeded, such as I have often heard in eases of fire, or some such alarm. Of this I took little notice,'but went down to my gate, 'still dressing,' and the noise still increasing I returned to the bungalow, put on my uniform, and again went out.

THE 33RD AND 57TH CLAUSES. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 12 July 1857

THE 33ÜD AND 57TH CLAUSES. To both of these clauses wo would earnestly and respectfully invite the serious attention of the ATTOUXEr-GExritAL. The 33rd clause precludes any Licensed Victualler from recover- ing a just debt, unless it shall have been in- curred in sums of not less than twenty shillings at one lime. The intention of tho clause is apparently,to throw cold water upon a system of selling liquors on credit,thereby facilitating the procuring of drink by those whose means aro not adéquat» to their desires. It amounts, in fact, to a total prohibition of any hut cash transactions, so far, at least, as the law can prohibit them. It is ii denial of redress to any Licensed Victualler who is* generous enough, in the teeth of the Act, to give credit -it is a wet sponge.which, at once, obliterates chalk scores, and tbe records of tho tap-room slate. The principal fault we have to find with this clause is, that it makes a broad distinction be- tween the business privileges of the Li...

THE MERCURY lâublisfieti fbToirimg, Ë&cïm«fljap ¿jfrftiao MONDAY MORNING, JULY 13tb, 1857. Tirenj; is a very erroneous impression afloat amongst the Working Classes in this Colony, relative to the effect which an influx of Immi- gration would have npon the labor market > and, it is one which may act prejudicially to their intoiests in connexion with the new iAud Scheme if not removed. We have long been aware of the existence of a feeling of hostility to the introduction of labor ; but, as 't has never been brought into collision with any great practical question, we have not deemed it necessary to advert to it thus prominently. To pietend ignorance oHt-t ex- istence would be absurd. Men glory in the avowal of it. Not satisfied wit h throwing every legitimate obstacle in the way of immi- gration, they too often allow their bigoltcd animosity to what they consider would militate against their interests, to betray them into the propogation of statements well cal- culated to ...

THE MERCURY ÎJJublisliio iHoïtïran;, ïaStUiuaDa» tcfftíoay. WEDNESDAY/ MORNING, JULY 15tli. 1S57. THE petition presented to the House of Com- mons by Mr. MOXTOOMEBY MJuiiiK, praying that the new Reform Bill may bo so framed as to make provision for the representation of the Colonies in the Imperial Parliament, is well worthy of the most serious consideration. The idea is a novel one ; and one which has never, hitherto, been embodied in any practical form. There is something seductive in the first flush of it-something well calculated to produce an inrprcssion favorable to its adoption. It seomed to us, at the moment, to be a just and a graceful concession to the growing wealth and importance of tho Colonies ; and, in that spirit, we wero all but prepared to ac- cept of it. On calm reflection and careful en- quiry, however, our opinions, regarding the advantages to be derived from the contem- plated privilege, have undergone a considerable change. We can easily foresee that such a co...

THE ELECTRIC TELEGRAPH. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 15 July 1857

THE ELECTRIC TELEGRAPH. The electric telegraph has become a valuable auxiliary to the service of the Post Office. Its announcements of the arrival of the foreign packets in sight of the English coast give the warning for preparation for the rapid distribu- tion of loreign and colonial mails, which are now of enormous magnitude. The telegraph is now extended to almost every railway town in the kingdom. By means of the submarino cables across the British Channel to Calais, Ostend, and the Ha>-,'ue,almost every European capital is en rapport with London. The long- est extension oi the telegraph, nt present, is that between London and Balaklava, through Vienna and Varna, and between the English metropolis and Simpheropol, by way of St. Petersburg and Moscow. The Russian rail- roads will extend it to all parts of north eastern Europe.

From a very unusual accident-for we can call it nothing else-the impoits at Launceston exceeded in amount and value tha imports ol this side of the Island during the month of May-a circumstance which led our northern contemporaries to indulge in visions of future greatness, which, as we predicted, havo been entirely dispelled by the Returns now pub- lished.
