THE EDUCATION OF THE LABOURING CLASSE.—CONSIDERED AS A NATIONAL QUESTION. (From the Mark Lane Express,) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 26 April 1858

THE EDUCATION OF THE LABOUR- ING CLASSE«.-CONSIDERED Ah A KA 1 ION AL QUESTION. (From the Mark Lane Express,) The education of the poor has ever been a stumbling-block, nnd au it must continue, so long us sectarian differences continue to exi-t, and to conntciact the efforts of each otli.-r. An exemplification of this toole place at the last discussion of the Loudon Central Furniers' Club, where the different speakers took entirely different views of the question ; while the testimony of what had taken place in their localities exhibited bow badly the present plan worked, and the necessity of a general re-viaou of the whole system. 'Hie ltev.

THE OCEAN STEAMERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 26 April 1858

THE OCEAN STEAMERS. The freight charged for the specie which was sent out in the lndia mail packet of the 4th instant amounted to about £25,000 sterling. The charge for the million and a quarter of specie which was sent out some short time since in an Indian mail packet was about £35,000, and this sum, com- bined with the fares for passengers and freight for cargo by the same packet, amounted to the value of the packet itself. Thus, the fares and freight earned by au single ship for a couple of months' voyage could not be less than £50,000 or £60,000, £35,000 of which was for a single article of merchandise. This shows the enormous extent and value of our commerce, and its seem- ingly unlimited extensiou explains the cause of the increasing magnitude of our steamships. Some years since tbe steamer Tagus, about 800 tons burden and 280 horse-power, used to carry the Enst lndia mail, aud similar vessels the American mails. These mail-packets have been superseded by the Pera, 2700 tons ...

MR.,FARQU!IARSON'S COMPLI, MENl'ARY BENEFIT. The complimentary benefit to this accom- plished artiste last night by the Mnsonic body was a crowning tiimnph to his talents : the house was crowded in every part, and upwards of fifty persons were accommodated on the stage and in the orchestra. The beneficiare was in excellent voice, nnd evi- dently appreciated the compliment paid to him, His performances generally left notli'ng to be wished for, but we must par- ticular ze some of the geins of the evening. The first which we have to notice was the Death of'Nelson, truly characterized as a national song. The pathos and power evinced in its execution were umplo proof, if proof weio wanting, of the consummate skill of the performer. So, also, in the perform- ance of the flue and han o wing descriptive scena of the Maniac, which was given bv " pal ticulnr desire." The buffo songs were also executed with very appropriate and characteristic humour, agreeably diversifying the more grave and p...
