INSOLVENT COURT.—WEDNESDAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 17 July 1857

INSOLVENT COURT.--WEDNESDAY. Before Mr. Commissioner Fielding Browne. In re John Clark.   This was an adjourned first meeting. The Commissioner said, with regard to this case, that a petition had been presented to him by In- solvent in November, 1856, praying that he would grant him a declaration of Insolvency. The first meeting was held on December 3rd, and was ad- journed to January 13th of this year. The Insol- vent made no appearance, and it was supposed that he was now at Port Phillip. It was hardly requisite to enquire if Insolvent were present that morning, but he would do so for form's sake. In the recent Insolvency of William Marshall, who absconded and left the colony, he had felt it his duty to see His Excellency the Governor, on the subject of absconding Insolvents, recommending that some means might be adopted which would enable the Insolvent Court to order their presence here from any of the Australian Colonies. He trusted that the Parliament of Tasmania w...

LOCAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 17 July 1857

LOCAL NEWS. D.EI(0BAI2<'£,-We are glad to find that a Public Meeting has been convened by tile inhabi. tants of Deloraine to consider the best mode of alienating the Crown Lands. It is no »mall honor to this District that it has led the van. That the whole Colony is routing from its lethargy is evident -the people are beginning to comprehend how deeply and intimately their own interests are bound Up in this question. We trust that our Deloraine fríen s will set a good example to o ther Districts -who will watch their proceedings with consid- erable interest-hy assuming a position at once liberal and firm. Let them embody their views in a resolution, and forward it to tbsir Member with a request that he will support them ¡n Parlia- ment.

THE MERCURY Published Monday, Wednesday & Friday FRIDAY MORNING, JULY 17th. 1857. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 17 July 1857

THE MERCURY Ípitl-Iíshco íHonbajr, ESäebntaeap &JFrffla¡f FRIDAY MORNING, JULY 17th. 1857. IT ILA f tong been admitted, as a general rule, ¿nat the Press derives its tone from the people; and, there can be no doubt, that, to a certain extent, it does so. They mutually act and re-act upon each other; and, consequently, there must always exist something of a similitude between them. In admitting that this is so, we by no means admit that it should be so. In small Communities, where parties ave split into sections, the influence brought to bear upon the Press is mischievous :-the general principle becomes individualized, and the condemnation of a measure merges into personal vituperation of those who support it. Instead of restraining or guiding the passions of men, a partizan Press will seek rather to feed and inflame them. We have had abun- dant proof of this, within the last few months. That the Press in Tasmania-and ourselves as a portion of it-has failed-miserably foiled i...

MAURITIUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 20 July 1857

MAURITIUS. *" Wo have papers from Port Louis to the 28th of May. Previous dates were to the 21st April. From a table in the Commercial Gazette of the 27th, showing the progressive incieaso of the export of sugar from Mauritius, we learn that in 1851 it amounted to 133,000, O00 lbs., and in 185.0 to 253,000,000 lbs. A comparison is then drawn between the exports of the same commodity Reunion, which was 40,000,000 lbs. in 1861, and 112,000,000 lbs in 1855. "Notwithstanding thcso figures (says the Gazette^) there is this difference be- tween tlie two colonies : our prosperity has been purchased at an immense sacrifice of cap- ital, which, though not expended by the present proprietors of the soil, has not less tended to bring about the large production of this colony. Kennion has depended on her own resources during all the rudo vicissitudes she has had to pus through, and if the real debit and credit account of the two colonies during the pa>t fifteen years were to be made, the lar...

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. By the arrival of the "Active" schooner at Victoria, wo have an A'lelaide paper of the 10th inst., containing Mr. Goyder'« report of the important discoveries he has made in the north of South Australia, as the Jiegktef ob- serves, reads like a fairy tale; not only in its disclosures of hitherto hidden treasures, hut also in its illusory wonders. It informs us positively that we have a freshwater lake in the interior of the colonv, where wo scarcely dared hope for more than a stony desert or a salt marsh. It deäcribus a romantic scenery, noble hills, fertile vajle.ys, grassy plains, minier rous tyrd-", animals, and oven human inhabita- nts, gushing springs, and flowing creeks, where we had deemed there was nothing but aridity and desolation.

HEALTH REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 20 July 1857

HEALTH REPORT. Dn. E. S. HALÎ. read n very interesting paper on the health of Hobart Town during the month of June, 1837, to the members of the Koyal Society, on Wednesday evening, at the Museum, ITnrring ton-street. The füllt wing abridgement of it may not be uninteresting to our readers. Twcntv-two deaths hid been registered in the month of June. 1857, being nearly 16 less, than the averago of the 6 preceding years. But it must ba considered that the population of Hobart Town was now really less than it was in any of the 6 preceding years. This may be Inferred from the fact that the number of births has decreased, and Is decreasing. In 1855, the total number of births registered for Hobart Town and its associated dis- tricts was at its maximum, 1281. In 185G, the births were about one-twelfth len, and for the first 6 months of 1857, they had fallen still lower, or to 543, against 583 in the same period of 185G But probably about half of this deficiency might be accounted for, by t...
