Commercial Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 13 April 1855

©ommemal ïntelU'rrenre» Trade generally speaking continues dull, but the new wheat and other grain has been sent to market in fair quantities. The Mimosa brought 1600 bags of wheat and a large quantity of butter and cheese ; and notwithstanding a stormy passage, her cargo was landed in first-rate order. Wheat lias declined a triflle-3d. per bushel-and is ex peoted to come down to a lower figure. This is much requited, for if wheat and flour decline in price, labour will decline also, and the large stock of timber now on hand will find a market. Oatt of good quality have advanced fiom I Is. to 12s. per bushel, and are in request at that price, principally for exportation. At a Stock Sale at Sorell by Messrs.Worley and Frodsham on Tuesday last, good prices were rea- lised, and especially for store and fat pigs, which weie purchased veiy readily. Good fat wethers, ewes, and some choice lambs also found ready pur- chasers ; the attendance was good, and the bidding spirited. At a Sale of...

NEW TOWN RACES. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 13 April 1855

NEW TOWN RACES. THKSE Races commenced on Wednesday, and the day dawned most auspiciously for the oc- casion ; the showers of the day before had softened the turf, and, what waa of more con- sequence to the comfort of the visitors, had laid the dust, so that annoyance was spared the holy-day folk. The attendance was not nume- rous, and there lacked that spirit of holiday making, which is the life and soul of these meetings : the Booths, of which there .were tu ehe, besides the Committee, and a Tempe- rance Booth, were plentifully supplied with a variety of refreshments, iBolid as well as liquid, and we were sorry lo see, that they were not more freely discussed: there are however, two more days, upou which they may be more suc- cessful. As usual there were seterul shows, not forgetting the newly-imported elephant, and ot music there was no scarcity, from the Barrel organ and fiddle to the German Bund, so thutif pe pie chose to enjoy themselves the means were sufficiently abundant.

GUNPOWDER PILLS. LAUGHABUS CASK OF EMPIRICISM. 1 his action was brought at the white- chapel County Court recently, to recover the sum of 1/ 4s, for a quarter of a gross of Doctor Hippocrates's pills of life, and the proceedings convulsed the court with laughter. The plaintiff is an Irishman' assuming the name of Doctor Hippocrates, who it appears has been for some|time carry- ing on a thriving practice in the delight locality of petticoat lane. The defendant is a young beginner in the General line, whose patronymic is far from a misnomer. Mr. W. B. Davies, the solicitor, appeared for Mr. Solly Green and Doctor Hippocrates conducted his own case. Mr. Flynn, in true Milesian twang, said a friend of his w ishing to befriend Mister Gneen, the chate, come over him so as to appoint him agent for the sale of his pills of life, and to credit him for a quarter gross cf them. Upon his sending his assistant, Mister Leary, for the chips (laughter), Mister Green offered back the pills, and as h...

LIVES WASTED AND LIVES SPENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 13 April 1855

LIVES WASTED AND LIVES SPENT ^HiiiE so many families in Great Bri- tain are grieving over the fate of relatives who have fallen gloriously in the Crimea, and dreading the yet further loss which may be entailed upon them by subsequent operations, a few considerations which circumstances irresistibly suggest may not be without use, both as a consolation to mourners and as wisdom to the country. Human life is a sacred and a valuable thing. The intellect, the sinews, the energies of a man are precious to himself, nnd should be precious to the land that bore him. They are possessions to be cul- tivated and clung to ; to be carefully che- rished, to be wisely spent ; never to be wasted, yet never to be grudged. The individual or the nation that throws them recklessly away is guilty of something worse than folly ; the individual or the nation that hoards them in the spirit of the miser, in place ni lavishing them in the spirit of the patriot, may bo charged with something worse than parsim...

Local News [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 13 April 1855

Local News THE ROYAL SOCIETY.-We had always sup- posed, that the Museum of the Royal Society, as well as its library, were open to the visits of the public, in the same manner, as similar institution« in the Mother Couutry ; but, having been fre- quently questioned on the subject, we have made enquiry into the matter, and find, to our astonish- ment, that none but Fellows, or Members, which ever they be are admitted within the exclusive por- tal«. This is decidedly wrong ; the Royal Society is in every respect a public institution, supported, in great measure, by public money, and ought, therefore to be devoted to the instruction and amuse- ment of the community. It is quite monstrous, then, that it should be,made so,completely exclu» tive ; it should be remembered, that the grant of land proposed for the use of the Society, has not yet been issued, and if this exclusiveness is persis- ted in, we hope the public will petition the Coun- cil against the grant, and insist upon admissio...

(ADVERTISEMENT.) On the late Mrs James BURDON, Hobart Town, Van Diemen's Land, who died March, 15th, 1855.     She liv'd to God nor from his paths declined, Was always ever affable and kind, In meek devotion many years did pray, Now from this earth her spirit's psssed away.   To dwell where ruth and sorrow are not known, Where Christ is sitting on his great white throne; No storms are ever there to darken life, No curling lip of mourn,-austere morose, nor strife.   The world also kept without, and chose the betterpart :   A kind and faithful wife, upright in life and heart, A tenderer human parent never trod,   Whether fortune frown'd or smil'd she closely follow'd God Why should a mother weep for one that's blest,   Or husband and relatives feel distress'd       For one that's in a mild and brighter cllme Adorned in white 'mid grandeur most sublime?
