MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 22 July 1857
MISCELLANEOUS. TUB AsTOsisiiBD WOBSIIIPPRM--The Picola Corriere d' Italia, of Turin, quote* a letter from Sicily relating the following:-"A fe» days ago an unknown gentleman called upon a certain parish pi ¡est nnd requested bim to prepare a most sumptuous funeral service f»r u certain day. Tho whole church wus to be hung wi.'b. black drapery, the catafalque was to be adorned with tfoweis, and the number of tnpets to be lighted was quite as ounding. The priest ventured to observe that for such n service the outlay would be considerable; to which the stranger replied by taking ont his pocket-book and depositing a sum of 400 ducats (l,720f.)on the table, begging he would spend the whole of that sum, and get as ninny masses read on the ooension as possible. As fur the funeral ii script ion to be placed on the catafalque, he would bring it himself on the day before the reremony. The préparations were made, the inscription was brought, and fixed in the place assigned for it ; and au imme...
THE 47TH CLAUSE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 22 July 1857
THE 47TH CLAUSE. THE provisions of this clauso are so utterly repugnant " to. all . British feeling-so i out- rageously ungenerous-and so monstrously unjust, that we have had some doubt whether ib was necessary to adverb to the olause at all. The framers of the present Act, by the time fchey had reached . the 47th clause, seem to hive bean perfesfcly callous ; their minds had become so thoroughly impregnated with the penal character of the Act, as to shut out any of those compunctious visiting? of conscience, which, undcr'bthcr circumstances, would have risen up in judgment against it. This clause is the very wantonness of tyranny. Had the Licensed Victualler been composed of the off- scourings of Port Arthur-men, upon whose free agency it was necessary to place an interdict-men, with whom crime was the rule and honesty the exception-a more stringently penal and humiliating regulation than this clause contains, could not have been brought to bear upon them. Thp civil immu- nities to...
HANGING BY LYNCH LAW. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 22 July 1857
,. HANGING BY LYNCH LAW. We have just learnt from Mr. Black, of Andrew, the old country seat of Jackson County, 25 miles south of Dubuque, the par- ticulars of the hanging at that place by a mob, on Saturday last, the Hth iust., of Eli Grif ford, a half-breed. Grifford had murdered a man named John Ingall» about the 28th of March. Ho was arrested and lodged in jail on Saturday last at about two o'clock p.m. by a mob of 24 of the citizens of the vicinity where tho murder was perpretated-Irou-hill post-office, in the «.une county, and about 14 miles from Audrew. Tlie jail waa entend by force, the door being broken open with a «ledge hammer* The jailor made no resistance, nor called on the citizens for help to protect the prisoner or defend the jail. The uncle of the murderer had a few moments before ridden into town and warned the jailer of the approach of the mob. The mob was headed by Jacob Laudis, of Iron-hill, and on arriving in town proceeded at once to the jail and assallorl tbe...

THE GULF STREAM IN THE ATLANTIC. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 22 July 1857
' THK GULF STREAM IN THE ATLANTIC. The general description of the Quit' Stream, apart from any present question as to its sources is, that of' a vast and rapid ccean currcnt, issuing from the basin of the Mexican Gulf mid Carriliinn Sea,doubliug the southern cape pf Florida; pressing lorwaids to the north-east, in a 'lino almost parràllel to the American coast j touching on tho southern borders of the Grand B inks of Newfoundland and at some seasons partially passing over them ; thence, with increasing width and dif- fusion, travel sing the whole breadth of the Atlantic, with a central direction towards tlu British Islet, ; and finally losing itse'f by still wider diffusion in the Bay of Biscay, on oui own shores and upon the long line of the Nor- wegian coasts. Its identity in physical char- acters is preserved throughout vhe many thousand iqiles of its continuous flow-the only change undergone is lltat bf degree.

INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 22 July 1857
INDIA. Fresh details of the Indian insurrection are ¡ reaching us from various som ces, and the mote we leam the more formidable the incidents appear. For example, a gentleman near the ¡ scene of action, tims writes to his brother in Sydney, on the Sth of June :- i Every one here is in a state of excitement j | and uneasiness owing to the disturbances in j Upper India. You will be sorry to hear that poor S-- is amongst the number of the massacred. He was a missionary at Delhi, I and none of the missionaries appear to have escaped. A native Christian, who escaped to Agra, told our friend F-that he had ¡ seen S-'s dead body. Ho may not be telling the truth, but still the probabilities are ¡ so much in favor of his being a truo story that I we have very faint hopes. It has been a most hoi rid massacre, and loudly calls for vongence. We have'no particulars of th» Delhi affair, nor I can we learn until the place is retaken ; but I the Meorut massacre was most frightful, and 1 accompanied...
HOW THE ROTHSCHILD FAMILY BECAME SO POWERFUL. (Jewish Chronicle.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 22 July 1857
HOW THE ROTHSCHILD FAMILY BECAME SO POWERFUL. (Jewish Chronicle. ) WE translate from the " Novellenzeitung," of Leipsic, the following account :- Towards the last days of September, 1793, the landgrave of Hesse-Cassel saw the banners of the French republic unfurled close to the frontier of his dominions. He then hastily collected his most precious valuables, consist- ing of jewels, and gold, and silver, besides three millions of dollars, and went with them to Frankfort, where he hoped to deposit them in safety. Having arrived in the ancient city, where formerly the successors of Cæsar were crowned, he knocked at the modest door of a Jewish banker, called Meyer Rothschild, richer in children than in dollars, but who was an excel- lent archæologist and a distinguished numis- matic. The landgrave, passionately fond of antiquities, had a high opinion of the know- ledge of the Hebrew, who, for the last five or six years, with the title of medallist to his highness, had supplied him with ...
