The Robarton Mercury. FRIDAY MORNING, MARCH 30, 1855. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 30 March 1855

Che tyobxvton ffîtttuty* FRIDAY MORNING, MARCH 30, 1855. A hand-writing has at length appeared upon the wall, and days .of official, drowsiness and humbug are to be 'brought to a close. Sinecurists and inca- sables are no longer to be mere drones in the hive, sucking all the honey out of the honey-comb of the Treasury. Retrench- ment is the order of the day, and Sir ,Henry Young has commenced to use the pnmiug-knife. If he lops off, and that at once, the decayed branches and trunks that continue as obstacles ia the path of official progress, some service will bo done to the state.' His Excellency's able pre- decessor, aware that his government was drawing to an end, was kind, generous, benevolent, and indulgent, even to a fault. Those malcontents of faction, who accused, one of the ablest of Colonial rulers with tyranny, made a charge to which every act of a pious life, and Christian charity and forbearance, gave the most unqualified contradiction. Sir W. Denison, in anti- cipation ...

Eora! ¿letog Ragcjed School. - Under this designation there is an institution in Watchorn-street, which although it has existed for six months, is not known to one tenth of the community. We visited this school on Wednesday, and experienced mingled feelings of gratification and regret in the inspection of its general routine. It has been established chiefly by the exertions of Mr Gray, the City Missionary, and affords refuge to between forty and fifty children, from the ages of four to twelve years' who, under the charge of Mr. Joseph Moore, are brought into habits of order and discipline. It is needless to say that these poor children are for the most part the offspring of neglectful parents, but they are íemarkably teachable and several are very intelligent. There is a visiting committee, which consists of the following clergymen :-The Rev. Archdeacon Davies, Messrs. Nicholson, K. John- stone, Clarke, and D'Embden, and Mr Arnold, the Inspector of Schools, takes an interest in the ...

THE BRAVEST OF THE BRAVE. (From the London Times) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 2 April 1855

THE: BRAVEST OF THE BRAVE. (From the London Times ) The record of Sir De Lacy Evans's services read like an.epitome of well nigh all the wars in which'this country has been engaged since the rupture of the peace of Amiens. He has been fifty years in the army, and has been pre- sent in lifty crcat battles. He has. served in the East Indies, in the West Indies, and in the United States. He accompanied the Duke of Wellington through the career of conquest in . the Spanish peninsula, and there greatly dis- tinguished himself, wherever distinction was to be earned by reckless exposure of hinibelf or prudent eare for.others. It was he who at the head of one hundred men forecd the house of congress at Washington. He performed, besides, may important services in the same, quarter. Ile was at Waterloo, and shewed himself to be amongst the bravest and most competent officers on that dreadful day. It would be idle to recur to his moro recent ser- vices in Spain in behalf of a constitutional th...

IRELAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 2 April 1855

IRELAND. Desperate Affray between the Military and Constabulary.—The town of Castle- maine, on Tuesday evening, was the scene of one of those collisions the occurrence of which is always to be deplored. About 8 o'clock, some soldiers of the 40th Regi- ment, quartered in that town, while in a state of intoxication, were proceeding down Castle-street, and at its junction with the main street, they were met by some of the constabulary, who, it is said, reasoned with them on the impropriety of proceeding into town, and advised them to return to barracks. This, after some altercation, they consented to do, and returned through Castle-street, shouting as they went along. At the upper end they were met by a party of the constabulary, out on duty to preserve the quiet of the town, as St. Stephen's day is always honored in the taverns. On coming up to them, the soldiers at once attacked the police, and having taken off their belts, they turned them into weapons of assault. Fortunately Mr. Su...
