TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 15 October 1860

TO THE EDITOR oy THE MERCURY. SIR,-As the mercantilo assistants of Hobart Town havo a spokesman for thom in tho poison of C. M., I do not see why I should not writo a few words in favor of tho Lawyers' Clerks of Hobin t Town. I nm well awnro that tho Morcantilu Assistants of this city havo much to complain of in regard to their holidays but at the samo timo I do think the Clerks have just as much as thoy. What is tho use of ft Publio Holiday to thoso who oannot leave their work f No uso at all whatever. It is very well for tho masters themselves who can toko a day whenever thoy choose, but would it not be to their oredittosbowsomollttlerogardfortheii' clerks, who do their work for them often while thoy are out enjoying themselves ? Would it not bo to their credit to give them a holiday too ? It is a j question with usas with tho M. A. whether we'll le ! able to get a holiday on the Prince of Wales' Birth- day.

PAUPER CHILDREN. [TIMES.] [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 15 October 1860

PAUPER CHILDREN. i _ [TIMES.] The Inspectors of Schools give upon tbo wholo a good report of the Parochial Union Schools this year. The children are commonly found on ad- mission to be in a state of the grossest ignorance, but in these schools they get a rudimentary education combined, in many cases at least, with systematic industrial instruotion.theboysin garden- ing, fieldwork, or common trades, the girls in wash- ing, cooking, and needlework. The ofleot of this on tho school instruction, on the vivacity, intelligence, and acquirements of tho children, as well as thoir physical and moral health, is said tobo almost marvellous, There is an abundant demand for tho girls as domestic servants, and from well-conducted schools the boys generally get situations when about 14, but it is said they often leave their first placo because they feel moro independent in one of their own choosing than in tho placo found for them by the guardians, or, as they term it, " the work- house situation....

DEATH OF ME. JOHN DUNN, M.P. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 15 October 1860

DEATH OF ME. JOHN DUNN, M.P. It is with deep regret and sorrow that wo have to announce tho untimely death of this gentleman, which melancholy event took place on his passage from England to Tasmania, in the Bed Sea. Intelli- gence to this effect was received in Hobart Town on Saturday, by electric telegraph from Launceston, and rapidly »pread through tho city. Mr. Dunn's return to the colony was anticipated by the Salsetto, and some surprise was occasioned by thenon-appear anco of his name in tho list of passengers published on Saturday morning. The explanation of this cir- cumstance, as announced early on that day, pro- duced a most painful effect. Tho position which Mr. Dunn long held as a principal partner in one of tho leading commercial houses iu Tasmania; his personal popularity; and the active part ho had taken in political life, together with the distinction ho had won in being elected a member of Parlia- ment by an English constituency; would have secured for him avery war...

VICTOEIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 15 October 1860

VICTOEIA. NIGHT REVIEW OP VOLUNTEERS.-A considerable number of spectators wero present at the reservo adjoining the Prince's Bridgo Barracks on Satur- day night last, to witness a scene of a somewhat novel kind, viz.-a night review of the Royal Vic- toria Volunteer Artillery Corps. About 170 mem- bers of the corps were present, and the chief com- mand was taken by Colonel Anderson. The corps was divided into three bodies, respectively under the command of Major A. If. Smith and Captains Ver- don and Snee. The former had charge of the guns, while the two latter wero formed into covering par- ties, a small body being stationed in front as outposts. The "alarm" having been given by sounding a bugle, upon the dischargo of a rocket the firing comuipnced, the guns being discharged as often andasquicklyas possible, the covei ing parties doing execution with their car- bines. This was kept up for some time, and in the stillness of the night the reverberations of the vol- leys and cannonadin...

THE MERCURY. MONDAY MORNING) OCTOBER 15TH. 18ÜO. WE adhere to our usual principle of self-ne- gation on the arrival of the English maji. At sucha time European topics »re of far greater interest than matters merely local, and our readers will be better pleased to be put in pos- session of the great facts of the month's news than of our comments on them.

ELANCE. dt is rumoured that a fourth regiment of Zouaves is about to be created, and that the regiments of the line, now 102 in number, will be augmented to 110. A correspondent of the liuMpentlanc« Selge writes from Paris :-" The slight niisuuderstauding between the Emperor and Prince Napoleon, which folUwed the death of Prince Jerome, is now at an end. The Palais Royal (in which there had been a talk of providing apartments for Marshal Vaillant) will be exclusively appropriated to the prince, who will not now go to live at his villa in tho Avenue Montaigne. It is rumoured that out of the million a, year dotation which Prince Jerome enjoyed, 200,000 fr will be paid to Princo Napoleon, and the remaing 800,000fr to the imperial prince. It will be remembered that the civil list settled on Princo Napoleon at the time of his marriage was 600,000fr." The English commissioners, with Mr. Cobden at their head, continue to work away at tho com- mercial treaty, which creates great labor at ev...

BOTHWELL. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 15 October 1860

. BOTHWELL. On Sunday last two anniversary services were held in the Wesleyan Chapel, on this Township, commemorating the establishment of the Sabbath School in connection with the above place of worship. The Sermons were preached by the Rev. J. B. Smith from Campbell Town to crowded con- gregations. The children sang the appointed hymns in a very creditable manner ; great care had evidently been taken by the Teachers in instructing them for the occasion. On the following day, a public meeting was held, the chair being taken by the Revd. J. Fillingham of Oatlands, addresses being delivered by the Rev. J. B. Smith, and Messrs. Ife, Blake, Wise, H. and J. Pratt. A sub- stantial treat to the cliildren closed these very in- teresting services.

Tho Report also comprised sonto rules prohibitory of taking sub-coutracts, a system which appears to have worked very prejudicially to the interests of the operative mason.
