THE INDIAN INSURRECTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 15 July 1857
THE INDIAN INSURRECTION. We have files of Bombay journals to the 29th of May, bringing additional particulars of the Sepoy rising. For the preseut we must content ourselves with the following summary : Sir Henry Lawrence, Commissioner of Oude, has been assassinated nt Lucknow. The following is an extract from the Lahore Chronicle of 15th May; The Senior Military Officer in the Punjaub Major-General Reid, having this morning re- ceived uews of the disarming of the troops at Meeau Meer, a Council of War .was hold, corsistiug of General Reid, Brigadier Cotton Brigadier Neville Chamberlain, Colonel Ed- wardes and Colonel Nicholson, aud the fol- lowing measures were resolved on, subject to the confirmation of the Coinmauder-iu- Chief.

WOOL TRADE IN AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 15 July 1857
WOOL TRADE IN AMERICA. We have found the philosopher's stone, not in Australia, not iu California, not amid the silver of Potosi, not in the diamond mines of Golconda, not iu the crucible of the alchemist, not in au inconvertible paper currency, but in the simple readjustment of the principle of taxatiotijoccordiugtjlawssuggested by natur», and realfirmed by science ns embodying truth at once of abstract simplicity aud purity, and of perfectly practical application. To leave industry untrammelled, to strike from her limbs the fetters of a false and artificial system, to use the Custom-house merely asa means of obtaiuiug revenue, and renounco the foolish attempt to regulate by law the exigen- cies of commerce,-these things have beeu to us a fountain of^abundance, au inexhaustible cornucopia, a talisman of ever-renewed wealth and power. The prosperity that could not bu wou by restrictions came at once unsolic- ited^ soon as the restriction« were taken off, aud so long as we have the w...
THE CHINESE QUESTION WITH AMERICA (From the Obierver May 3rd.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 15 July 1857
THE CHINESE QUESTION WITH AMERICA &nbsp; &nbsp; (From the Observer May 3rd.) lu the position which the American Govern- ment bas deemed it right to assume with re- gard to tlje Chinesp question, there is some- thing that at tlie first view looks very Uko what our Translantic cousins themselves call "smart " dealing. Next to England, the Uni- ted States have the greatest interest of any nation in establishing more satisfactory rela- tions between the Chinese and the "outer" pe- ople, or barbarians, as the former term all who aro not of their own race. The American trade with China is second only to our own, and is increasing with amazing rapidity. Compared with theirs, the concern of the French or of any other European people in the matter is quite insignificant. To decline, therefore, an active co-operation with us, whilst approving of our objects and acknowledging the justice of our catuie, with the avflwed intention of using a neutral position for tho purpose of mo...

SENATOR SUMNER IN PARIS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 15 July 1857
SENATOR SUMNER IN PARIS. This distinguished American statesman and orator ha« been tendered a public dinner by the American merchants residing in Paris. To this invitation, Mr Sumner returned a reply, in which he said : " Gentlemen,-The voice of hospitality is pleasant in n strange land. But the hospitality which you offer me is en- hanced by the character and number of those who unite in it,among whom I recognise well known names,* which aro intimately associated with the commerce of my country in one of its most important outposts. But there is one aspect in which your invitation is especially grateful. It is this : If I have been able to do anything not unworthy of your approbation, 'it is because I have never failed, whether in majorities or minorities, against all obloquy, and at every hazard, to uphold .those principles of liberty which, just in pro- portion a* thoy prevail under our consti- tution, make us an example to the nation. And since my public course cannot be un- kno...

LOCAL NEWS. THE INSPECTOB OP POUCE.-Mr. Fors- ter returned to Towu yesterday evening from his official tour. MECHANICS' INSTITUTE.-Great igno- rance appears to prevail among the people gener- ally, as to the advantages held out by this useful and important Institution. Iti reading room and library are open until nine in the evening, and offers special benefit« to the young who have em- ployment throughout the day, and are yet anxious to improve their intellectual capacities. We believe ne are correct in stating that there is no other library in tho town that is open to so late and con- venient au hour. It» library is constantly receiving valuable accessions under the present management. The Museum belonging to the Institute is open to visitors during the day, and is worthy of lepeated visits. The chemistry class, conducted by Mr. Pears, assembles every Monday evening ; it num- bers twenty-five. The class of vocal music is attended regularly by nearly 60 students. Owing to the apathy...

Every effort was made by the priests to hush up the affair, in order to prevent scandal against ' mother church ;' and it was, therefore, with the utmost djffjculty I ascertained the facts of the cas«. Early in the week the Rev.
