GOVERNMENT LAND SALE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 22 April 1858

» ' » m iii-ii .uu<iiiB!mi.ju- ' GOVERNMENT LAND SALE. The Sale of Crown Lands by Mes.-r' Woblev & FBopiirAii: under the pro- visions of our New Land Act took plate yesterday at the Court House and was veiy well attended. There weio forty seven lota submitted, out of which twenty-three were disposed of. Tie prices realised, more especially for tho lands lying in the vicinity of the pro- posed new Çfiad from Hpbart Town to the Huon, realized prices much above the upset. Considering the very small extent of the sale the competition «us warm and animated. Some of the lots sold as high as from four to five pounds an acre. It is probable that these lots would have commanded a still higher figure had the Auctioneers been in a position to guarantee that the lota would lay on the proposed Huon tract. This they were not in a position to do. Eleven of the purchasers availed them- selves ol' the provisions of the lath Section of the Act, and will obtain credit; the remaining...

THE CURSE QF CASTE 1ST INDIA. Of the 100,000,000 whom we govern in India, there certainly are not 10 who could comprehend the possib'lity of a man concerning himself for the good of the country at largo, op extending his regarde beyond the cirolo of his kindred or friends.

VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 23 April 1858

VICTORIA. Our Melbourne journnh p3r Black Swan carne to hand last nigl t. 1 There is no change in the markets. One unbrokeu coat plaint at the non appearance of the Columbian seems to pervade nil classes of the mercantile community. The Victorian Architects do not like the prize for the Post Office design being awarded to a Tasmanian, and they have addressed a letter of remon- strance to the Governor on tho subject. Wo onoto from the Age : - "Without wearying your Excellency,' s.aya the letter, "with matters of detail in each instance, we would generally insist, first, that the selected elevations are extravagant as to cost, aro wanting in ability, purity of design, and fitness of purpose; and, secondly, that the plans ure impracticable in construction mid unwo: kable as regards the daily routine of the post office." The lettut winds up by a request that steps may ho taken to procure a more righteous decision. The matter is quietly shut up by the Governor causing his private secreta...

MISCELLANEOUS SHIPPING. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 23 April 1858

MISCELLANEOUS SHIPPING. Captain Harrison of the schooner Macquarie, tienne from Port Albert, reports the Eucalyptus off Schouten Island, on Tuesday. THE COLUMBIAN. Tho following is from the Age of Tuesday -.-? A statement has gained currency within the last day or two to the effect that the Columbian was not due until to day, as the February mails were not to bo sent off until the 24th of that month, or at least a fortnight after the u'ual time. It is said that an in- timation was received by our Post Office authorities by the last mail, that the Company intended to observe last year's dates unless in the' meantime their new arrangements were completed. What authority attaches to the .tatitment, we cannot of course determine; we give it merely as a rumor. If it bas any foun- dation, the present head of the Postal depart Meat would surely not have withheld the infor- mation from the public. We are disposed, therefore, to regard the statement as nothing more than a faint attempt to ap...

If mon were inva- riably influenced by high and honorable principles, if all their dealings were mai ked by a spirit of rectitude and fair play, most of our penal laws would soon become unnecussaiy and obsolete, and our legislation might be exempted from all its coercive and restraining clauses. In the present day it is felt to be neces- sary, even in making laws for the regu- lation of the Customs, laws which, in almost every instance, apply only to the merchant and the respectable dealer, to provide against fraud, Ingenuity and cunning are oft-times strained to their utmost tension in order to outwit the laws which regulato the Customs and constitute the tarifF.
