CRICKET MATCH. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 21 April 1858

CRICKET MATCH. The Match between the Young Dei went Club and the Tradesman's Union Club, caine off yesterday in the Government Domain. Wickets were pitched at on early hour, and the game commenced with the Derwenters sending Tabart and Westbrook to the wickets, who acquitted themselves very creditably. Whiteside» batted remarkably well, and Briant's play is also deserving of notice. The Deiwenters ran up a lurge score very rapidly, only ceding the wickets to their opponents when they had obtaiued 130 runs. The Union Club went in for their first innings in no way discouraged by the long score against them, only to see their hope* speedily blighted by losing their wickets with only 10 run*. But we must mention that the Uniouers were woefully out of prac- tice, and in common with most of the Clubs here could do nothing against the round hand bowling. In their second inning* the Tradesmen acquitted themselves rather better, but only succeeded in scoring 52 runs, thus giving the victory ...

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT) Adelaide, April 10th 1858. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 21 April 1858

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. (FBOH otra OWN COBBESPONDENT) Adelaide, April 10th 185S. One of the largest land sales of the season took place on Thursday. One hundred and twenty five lots of Mount Gambier land, comprising an area of lt,823 acres, were knockod down by the Government hammer at an average of £112s 0£d per acre, realizing the gross sum of £18,941. Eighty two lots passed the hammer, but the greater part of them wero applied for privately after the sale. With the exception ot the great sale in Juno 1854, when 23,442 aores realised something like £49,000, this is the largest sale ol' publie land ever effected in South Aus- tralia since the adoption of the present system. . , i Mr. J.

THE MERCURY WEDNESDAY, APRIL 21ST, 1858. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 21 April 1858

THE MERCURY WEDNESDAY, APRIL 21ST, 1853. THE Commercial reputation of a Colony the same as that of an individual, should be like CESAR'S wife above suspicion. It is not only necessary that we do no wrong ; but, it is necessary, also, that we shun whatever will countenance the imputation of a desire to do wrong. We recognise the wisdom of this in tiio every-day transactions of private life. We admire and esteem the individual whoso commercial character is untar- nished by the breath of detraction. He walks amongst us erect, and wins our faith in his honor by the past integrity of his conduct. There are but few, we admit, whose character has* not been undeservedly assailed by calumny ; and, so long as envy, malice, and all unchari tableness walk abroad in the world, we may be well persuaded that such will continue to be the case. This, however, should set us all the moro upon our guard, and should bi-get a more cautious spirit 5 so that, when tried, we may come out with our commercial...

VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 21 April 1858

VICIOBIA. The Galette (Victoria) officially no- tifies the appointment of George Mackay Est].. Ii.LD. to be Deputy Judge of the Court of Mines at Ballaarat duping the illness of J.W. Rogers E->q. Mr, Rogers, however, was fast recovering. At the close of the Criminal Sittings of the Supreme Court, Mr Justice Moles* worth, and the Attorney General, re- marked upon, the number of petty cases that had been sent pa for trial instead of being dealt with in a summary way by the Police Magistrates. A similar observation was elicited from both our judges at the late Criminal fittings. Mr. Ireland, the Solicitor General, in a speech in Parliament referring to the dismissal of Mr. Adamson, made use of the expression " At the best it was a very Jewish looking affair. ' 'i'his has brought down upon him the indignation of the Jews who are pouring out the vials of their wrath in the columns of the Argus. Mr. ireland denies having made use of any su.ch expression.

HOW THE TIMES OCCASION. ALLY LETS: DOWN FRENCH LEGISLATORS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 21 April 1858

HOW THE TIMES OCCASION. ALLY LETS ¡DOWN FRENCH LEGISLATORS. Every year the Assemblies at which M. Troploug and M. de Morny preside are congratulated on thoir patriotism, their high distinction iu tho eyes of the world, and the example they set to other Legislatures by their wonderful harmony with the Government. But these phrases seem to have little effect on the nation. The legislative body, goes to its mechanical and routine duties'witli no more notice than if it were one of our parish vestries. The deputies are eminently common-place. They are respectable fathers of families, given much to talking "JBourse" as they sit together, each with his scrap of red riband at bis buttonhole. But they are not a distinguished body. There may be remat kable men among them, but they have not been remarked. The old race of politicians have decided on " abstention ;" the tribune no longer resounds with the eloquence of Louis Philippe's time; opposition, and even criticism, is dead ¡the Republic i...
