THE MERCUEY. THURSDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 11TH, 1860 [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 11 October 1860
THE MERCUEY. THURSDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 11th, 18U0 ? We'are troubled by many anxious enquiries as to the vacant seat ou the Bench of the Supreme Court. The public is impatient because the suc- cessor of Mr. Horne has not been appointed. We know of no higher compliment that could be paid to the gentleman who it is presumed will be our new Judge. It is an eloquent attes« tatton of his eminent fitness for a position at once of the highest social, and professional dis- tinction. It is felt thal the ri-jbt man for the post is at hand, and the question arises not un- naturally, whence the delay in making the ap- pointment ? .Although Mr. Horne has forwarded his resignation to the Executive, the Puisne judge ship is not legally vacant. His Excellency is not in a position to accept the resignation until Mr. Horne's succossor is prepared at once to enter upon the discharge of his duties. The Supreme Court as constituted by law requires two Judges. Its constitution is practically in abeyance d...

No scries of political events which luve come under our observation have been so full ot in stiuoii HI us the histoiy of the Reform question, from Mr. Bright'a first movements in 1858 to the final withdrawal of the measure on Monday last.

MERCANTILE ASSISTANTS VERSUS PRINCE OF WALES BIRTH DAY. [Per Favor of the Mercury.] BELOVED BROTHERS AND SISTERS -It appears pretty certain that tlio anniversaries of the birth of H. R. H. Albert Edward, Prince of Wales, will Do observed as a government holiday throughout out- most gracious Majesty's dominions; and the ap- proaching one gives rise to the questions-Aro wo to have a holiday ? And are tve to know in time, instead of the matter being left till the afternoon previous, and then a hasty canvass made of the shops, resulting in the day being kept by part of the shops open and the rest closed ? This has sometimes occurred, alike unfair to employers and employed-unfair to the former by having their houses closed; while others were taking the cash ; ttnd unfair to the latter by compelling some of tho hands to remain at work, while otlieis were enjoy- ing the holiday, and also preventing them from making arrangements to enjoy the day had suffi- cient notice been given.

TO THE EDITOR 01 THE MERCURY. Silt;-in the Launceston Examiner of the 4tU in- stant, I perceive ii paragraph headed, "How Judge Home's Pension Bill was passed," in which thd namo of my house is specially mentioned. Al- though it may bo considered quite unnecessary for any person to take the trouble to contradict any statement appearing in that print, yet as the gross falsehoods, ¡Is far as the Derwent Hotel is con- cerned, of which the paragraph iti cjuoftion is composed, aro likely to mislead those who nilly bo unacquainted with the character of the Launceston Examiner, I beg to give thera the most emphatic and unqualified contradiction. There was no convivial party at the Derwent Hotel on the day mentioned, nor was any honorable member in my house in the condition indicated. The whole of the assertions to that purpose aro a tissue of falsehoods j without even the slightest foundation to excuse ¡ tUeui. . Your obedient servant, WILLIAM WATKINS.
