The [?]obarton Mercury. FRIDAY MORNING. APRIL 20, 1855 [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 20 April 1855

SEíie ftotavton Jitmuv#, FRIDAY MORNING. APRIL 20, 1855 Ir appears tobare been supposed that immediately after the ratification .of the treaty sigued at Vienna ou the 2nd of December the three allied Powers would communicate to the Court of St. Peters- burg the terms on which they were pre- pared to enter iulo negotiations for the re-establishment'of peace, and that this intimation would be accompanied with a summons based upon the 5th article of the treaty. This supposition was, how- ever a mere conjecture, and it has not been verified by the course actually taken. The treaty itself was undoubtedly made ^ Known to the Russian Government by the Austrian Minister who still resides in St. Petersburg ; but the treaty itself docs not contain the full interprétation of the Four Points adopted by the allied Powers, and on this essential part of the transac- tion no further information could be given to the enemy. France and Eugland have uuiformely refused since the declaration of war to a...

THE GOVERNOR GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 20 April 1855

THE GrOArERNOR GENERAL. It was the lot of Sir W. Denison, as it has been the lot of all men, in all times and seasons, who aspired at the honour of governing for the benefit of all, and not of the few, to have the path of duty beset by every species of persecution from adver- saries, and by misconstruction, from even those who should rank as supporters. The press of the neighbouring colony of Vic- toria, hounded on by a portion ot our own, aud their hirelings, defamed, misrepresent- ed, falsified and abused, until their conduct became, at length, obnoxious and degrading. Tlie upright and able course which our late «Moveruor pursued was not sullicicnt to shield or protect bim against the most malignant slanders. Falsehood, however, has had its days-truth and uprightness have survived and triumphed-the very press of the colony, whose malignity knew no bounds, now announce that they re- quire the aid mid ability of the very mau they so abused and assailed, to protcctthem from social, p...
