LORD NAPIER'S SPEECH IN NEW YORK [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 24 July 1857

LORD NAPIER'S SPEECH IN NEW' YORK The speech of the uew British Minister at the St. George's dinner seems to have created a generally favourable impression. It is re- gard oil as a frank and satisfactory exposition of iho policy which is for the future to guide the Government of Great Britain in its relations with this country, and it is remarkable forth* cure which is taken to avoid wounding even by a phrase the susceptibilities of the Amer- ican peuple. Both in matter and manner it is ¡nat such n speech as was. to be expected from a minister of Lord Napier's popular tenden- cies, bucked by the liberal character of bis instructions. Of these it may be said that no etivoy has ever before been accredited by Great B.iitnin to a not lier Government to whose, discretion und prudence more has been eon« tided than to Lord Napier. He is indebted for this lut it »do of powers, of course, more to the political necessities of his mission tbaili to hi« own merits, but the fact of fa diplomatis...

A REVELATION OF THUGGISM. (FROM EPISODES IN THE WAR: LIFE OF A SOLDIER, BY CALDER CAMPBELL.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 24 July 1857

A KEVELATIOff OF THÜGGISM. (from episodbs dí the wah : life of a BOiDIEB, ST CAIiDEU OAttPBELfc.) The annual inspections and reviews being over, I had obtained a month's leave of ab- sence from my regiment, at that time occu- pying the lonely fort of Chanda, the capital of a district of the same name subject to the MahrattaSjiuid some eighty-*evon miles distant fiom Nngpore, which was, indeed, the nearest station to us where the sight of ii British face or the sound of a British voice could delight, our eyes or ears. Chanda, nituatcd amidst jungles, and overlooked by the remote Goand hills, continued but a short time to bo garris- oned by the Honorable Company's troops ; pre- vailing fever made it unhealthy, and frequent visitations from cholera of a singularly fatal character led to ts evacuation. But, in 1820, when we were sent there to protect the surro- unding country from the aggressions qf migra» tory bands of marauders-the remnants of the broken-up Pindaree and Goand armies-p...

INSOLVENT COURT.—WEDNESDAY [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 24 July 1857

INSOLVENT COUrT WEDNESDAY Before Mr Commissioner Fielding Browne,   In re John Allwoqd.     This was an adjourned meeting for discharge, and for judgment. The learned Commissioner said that Insol vent's discharge was opposed, on the ground of his having wilfully disposed of property to   the injury of his creditors. But there was so much conflicting evidence in the case, that he had come to the determination to leave the assignee to the remedies in his power. He (Commissioner) would never take it upon himself to adjudicate, or to allow opposition to prevail, unless quite satisfied as to the facts on which the opposition was founded. He would repeat that the evidence in this case was very conflicting, and he was of opinion that some of the circumstances were certainly suspicious. He wquld, therefore, postpone Insolvent's discharge for the present, so as to   give time to the assignee to take proceedings for the recovery...

SAVE ME FROM MY FRIENDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 24 July 1857

SAVE ME FROM MY FRIENDS. ' t - .1 i 1 Tins is a very trite saying, but one wé often seo exemplified. , Never .before, however, were we so forcibly reminded of it, as we have been during the last day or two by the Daily News. The writer in that journal will perti- naceously persist in stating, and reiterating the statement day after day, that the letter of Lord Talbot, de Malahide is an "infamous libel." Now, opposed to this, we have the solemn oath of Mr. Gregson himself, taken in the Su- premo Court on the 24th of January 1853, who emphatically and solemnly stated when Lord Talbot de Malahide's letter was placed in his baud:- "I do not consider that letter   impeached my conduct in the management of the Malihide Estate, as it calls upon me for an explanation, but it is not an impeachment." The Daily News of Tuesday, 111 alluding to the republic.ition of this letter in the Courier denounces it as a gross,deIiberate,and malicious libel upon Mr. Gregson, adding that :-Thi...
