I'HE MERCURY SATURDAY, APiilL 2im, 1858. Fue proceedings iii the Tasmanian Assembly, or rather the conduct ol' members forming the minority of that Chamber, created throughout the Australias a vast deal of amu-iemeut, no doubt mingled with some contempt. There was a time when the feeling of astonishment had subsided, and attention «vas drawn towards that »put with a curiosity which a new species of entertainment excites. Many were anxious tP see how fir a spirit uf disorganisation could triumph over the order of a legislative body how far it was possible for a few attire and reckless spirits to obstruct the con- stitutional purposes of a legislature and transform it into an arena of pugilism. That, however, which waa amusement to Ike real of the world was torture to the respectable member's of the Assembly who felt that, without discriminating individuals, or remembering riddles, the odium of thèse disorders in the general trjindtnustrest upon tÜe entire legislative body, and finall...

TOPOGRAPHICAL SKETCHES OF TASMANIA. Written for the Hobart Town Mercury, By J. E. Calder, Esq,, Surveyor. (Continued from the Mercury of the 23rd instant.) A day's rest at my encampment succeeded to the fatiguing journey I hd just completed. I next proceeded to examine tlhe unvisited track   between Kentish Plains, and Port Frederick, as also the vast area of forest land lying between that port and the Leven River. The morning of my departure was one of rain, but which   cleared on in a couple of hours. I travelled on a general bearing of about N. 10 E. toward some   clear-topped hills called Sunridge. Soon after quitting Kentish Plains, 1 entered a mile-long     valloy, of so barren a quality that I should   think even a puffing auctioneer would blush   to commend it to public notice. Hills of equal     sterility rose on either hand. I next ascended   th...

? ei,' lui a i THE MERCURY MONDAY, APRIL 26nt, 1858. Wf¡ have not heard of any stops as yoi taken by the government for oatrying into effect the objeots oontemplated by thePailiamentwhen voting five thousand pounds for the geological survey of the Island. This vote we take it may turn out to be ono of 1(1)0 most important and valuable ever sanctioned by the Legisla- ture, or it may prove not only absolutely useless but positively muoliievous ac cording to the manner in which the object proposed is attempted. Now th it the money voted for an exploration at Fingal has been spent, we all acknowledge that it was tljroun away. Had that aniount been placed at the disposal of a practical geologist, one who would-have engaged a dozen men aud sunk shafts at such places as science and experience pointed out, we should, at all events, have been satisfied that no remunerative gold-field existed in that locality. At present we are not so. There is »till the same un certainly, the same hope defer...
