THE WASTE LANDS. To the Editor of the Mercury. SIR,-Much hat been written of late respecting the unappropriated Waste Lands of the colony. Whether to the purpose or not, it is unnecessary to enquire ; but that it is a tubjectof vital importance to the happiness and welfare of the community, there can be no doubt. " There is, however, a circumstance which appears to have escaped the consideration of all those who have published their opinions as to the disposal of these Waste Lands, and which, nt this particular moment, should not be overlooked,-namely, " the ?election and appointment of gentlemen of ability, integrity, and professional knowledge, to the re- sponsible offices connected with the Survey De- partment." That the present Ministry is desirous of securing this special object, ii hardly to be ex- pected, teeing that already they have committed one false step, and inflicted a greviout wrong in the change! they have effected in this important branch of the service-traceable to...

ALLEDGED ATTACK UPON A ROMAN CATHOLIC BISHOP. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 17 July 1857
ALL EDGED ATTACK UPON A ROMAN CATHOLIC BISHOP. I We have received a reply from the Long- ford correspondent who supplied the commu- nication which appeared uuder the above heading in this journal,under date April 29th. He has at once honourably permitted us to give up his name and MS., in order to prove that he was actuated by no other motive thau that of exhibiting the violent conduct pursued at the late election for that connty. He was open to misinformation, as the most guarded person might be, during the fever of a contested county election. That reports of the occurrence were abroad is evidenced by a paragraph in the Longford Journal of Saturday. They even reached this city. But when we have the assurance of the Right Rev. Doctor Kilduff that there is no foundation for the statement, We have only to express our deep regret that our columns were made the medium of a communication calculated in the slightest degree to wound the feelings of a clergyman who bears a eba racter in ev...

VICTORIA. The following is from the Argus, oftlie 13th instant : The City of Sydney came in this morning without bringing any intelligence of tho inten- tions of the manager of_tho JEtimncajt-arid "iLtistirâTtan Mail Steamship Company with re- gard to the homeward mails of this month. We believe we aro correct in stating that this gentleman, Mr. L&rinour, has applied for and obtained the consent of the Governments of New South Wales and Victoria to the substi- tution of the Wonga Wonga for the Columbian for this trip only. No action has yet been taken on this consent, and it is probable that the arrival of the Columbian may change the intentions of Mr. Larmour. Capt. Moodie, who was to have taken charge of the City of Sydney down, was detained at Sydney, to be in readiness to take charge of the Wonga Wonga, if it be determined to charter her. A moonlight meeting was announced to take place on Saturday evening in the Eastern Market for the purpose of electing delegates to sit...
