CURIOUS CIRCUMSTANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 5 April 1855

CURIOUS CIRCUMSTANCE. Wr copy the following article from the * Watch- man' of August 1838, which plainly shows, that even so far hack as 17 years, Russia evinced a predominant desire, by her unwar- rantable aggression, to involve the whole of Europe in a war : at this, time, it will be peru- sed with peculiar interest : Reported Capture^ »fan English Schooner by the Rut' stan Weet. Europe has her ryes fixed on England at this mo- ment, and the conduct of her government will decide her fate.

Commercial Intelligence. Mercury Office, Thursday afternoon, 4 o'clock. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 5 April 1855

dommtrctxl TntclUVcme» .Mercury Office, Thursday afternoon, 4 o'clock. WE have, literally, no alteration to report. Every department of trade being, almost stagnant : a tri- fling increase of business eas been done in palings, -for which there has been some extra demand, but, in other articles there has been no change. In the grain market, wheat maintains the price quoted in our last, namely from ISs to 15 9d, according to quality ; as heretofore, the new wheat comes in but very slowly, and in small parcels, the growers, evi- dently holding back, in expectation of a rise in the price : if, however, thoy will take our advice, they will send their grain to market without delay, as the price will not advance. In stock, some good sales ha\e been effected. Mr. Bass sold some young un bioken horses, at an aveiage of £20, and some middle class h»rness horses at a figmc averaging from £40 to £50 ; these are in good demand, and find a ready sale; high«-priced boises aie not in demand.

Colonies and Great Britain, as advocated in this journal of'the 21 st March, has excited great interest in New South "Wales and Victoria; the Legislative Council of the latter Colony, as noticed in our last, having voted £50,000 "to the benefit,of Steam Com- munication between this group of Colonies and the mother-country," consequent upon a letter from Sir "William Denison to the Governor of "Victoria, Sir Charles Hotham, which we now transcribe. Government House, Sydney, 16th March, 1855. Sir,-The Peninsular and Oriental Steam Com- pany haying relinquished their contract for the conveyance of the Australian mails by way of Singapore, and the General Screw.

MvsTEiiious CIRCUMSTANCE.-In ¡our last we stated-that Mr. Mitson had discovered a body in a'.woodcn case, on Sunday evening last, within a few yards of the high water mark, near Rosny, Macquarie Point. The hones shew it to have boen buried some seven or eight years-perhaps longer. The kind of collin is composed of wooden slabs. The skull develops intellect according to the prin ciples of Gall and Spurzicm. The, remains are awaiting the investigation of a jury under Coroners Quest Law, but there is on the other side of the water no coroner. As usual, when a body is found all kinds of reports are abroad. Some affirm they are bones of the late Otter Montagu, Esq., who wos drowned some six years ago and his body never recovered. He had on his person a gold watch and money.

THE NEW COMMISSION. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 9 April 1855

TOE NEW COMMISSION. We have reason to know that the recent meetings of the Executive Council amongst other objects, have had reference to the framing of a new commission of the Peace, in order to exclude the clergy, as well as all the officials. As regards the latter, we believe that Sir H. E.E. Young is conscious of the swamping effect of a re- cent Lannceston meeting of Justices, where so many officials itere present. Heretofore, apart from this it has happened in ninety nine cases out of a hundred, where the go- vernment were interested in a question, that the official .magistrate has fouud him- self constrained to support that question ; and in many instances, to the detriment of the public interest ; and as respects the clergy, their connection with the magiste- rial bench was ever most objectionable, more especially, as they were only of one denomination. We therefore, rejoice in this, the first reformatory step of ¡SirHenry Young, and sincerely hope that it may be the precurs...
