THE UNEMPLOYED. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 27 April 1858

THE UNEMPLOYED. . - During the last two or threo 'Weeks, the ground beyond Prince's Bridge, near the spot where stood in the early days ot the gold-fields, the assemblage of tenis known as " Canvas Town," has been covered with clusters of men, hard at work, s iiashinj» stones. These are in reality the men who are entitled to the sympathy of the community, as being out ol'employment-destitute-and yet honestly anxious to obtain work. More than 800 men have applied since the offer of the Government of four shillings per yard, or correctly speaking per day, for stone breaking was made known.-Argus. TnE Wbathek.-The present wea- ther is most extraordinary for this season of the year. Fur some time there lies been but little rain felt here, and the sun is as warm and the atmosphere as clear as in December or January. Ahont 1*2 years ago a similar season was experien- ced hero, and the same year in which Black Thursduy occurred'was a dry season. , If rain does not caine soon we fear lhere ...

GENERAL INTELLIGENCE. Wanted a Tiuxslation-.-Our northern contemporary tho Cornwall Chronicle has revenged himself for tho attention drawn by us to Vie glaring inaccuracies in his leading columns of lato by quoting n blunder made by ono of our reporters in a local paragraph. What docs our contemporary mean wliau hu states that '* he could return the compliment with interest ?" Wo quoted a whole paragraph of blunders and allowed his composition to speak for itself. Ile cannot mean either that he could point out errors in grammar in' our loading olumus, because, it is evident, that he has not tho know- ledge requisito for the task. Had the errors contained in tho paragraph been "typographi- cal " wo should not have noticed them.

A PROPHET OF ILL. (From the Times.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 27 April 1858

A PROPHET OP ILL. ? (From the Tiifiei,) Ii we could look into futurity, should we be wise in doing so ? Could our fone knowLdge avail us to ward off evil con- sequences from ourselves or others, the most.incurious among us would be eager enough to peep behind the curtain ; but, since this implies a contradiction in terms, we may well rest contented in our ignorance. Tho desire, however, is so firmly engrafted in the human mind tint it is scarcely surprising if professional prophets rise up from time to time who endeavor to make their market of the forecasting mind of humanity. Aunt Margaret's mirror is a paying exhibition. The old prophetess of the first Napoleon's days, Madame le Normand, found dupes ever ready to her hand. The conjuring room of Cagliostro was crowded, and in our own day the spirit-rappers of the United States find plenty of credulous customers who aro prepared to pay down' hard dollars for the very latest intel- ligence from the world ol'shadows. The brown gipsy c...

THE SCOTCH UNIVERSITIES. (From the Tiines.) The Scotch Universities arc suddenly seized with a noble ambition. They are resolved tljat they sl}all hancqfoi'th be places of higli education. They will no longer educate rough, lanky, rawboned lads from the Grampians and Cheviots, or mould the rising generation of Edin- burgh, G lasgow, and Paisley apprentices. No, tliay will be true groves of Acad emus, seats of elegant learning, of re- fined, scholarship, of erudite finish and taste i the JlUsus. shall fjqw at Cj-lasgqiy and Aberd.en, polished high*boru youth shall flock to their lecture-rooms, gen- tlemen commoners shall lounge in noble qifadjangles, " Tufts" shall gleam here and there ii) the academio crowd,-in a word, the Scotch Universities will be English Universities ; and ' Edin- burgh, Ojlas^ow, ^hcfdeen, and. §tj.

LATER FROM VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 27 April 1858

LATER FROM VICTORIA. The Queen arrived at Launceston on ?Saturday evening from Victoria. There . were'no signs of the Mail Ship when the - Queen loft, and serious fears were enter-' -tiiiiiéd for the Columbian's safety. i J ' The Argus of the 22nd has the follow- ing : ' .'At no previous season has Melbourne been so dull, for years past, as nt the present time. This does not arise from want of capital, as is evidenced by tho large sums being offered as loans on freehold security, bat irom the entire j absence of speculation. This state of things must of necessity exist, so long as the public are uninformed as to the cxtonb of shipments despatched from England in January and February, and of those likely to como forward for | March and April; and so it will continue until, perhaps, tho news of a cessation in shipments como suddenly on the market, and raises up the latent spirit of specu- lation.

THE MERCURY TUESDAY, APRIL 27TH, 1858. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 27 April 1858

ÏHÉ MERCURY TUESDAY, APß/L 27th' l858 nd T-: ~~. T~T ? vicinal races The extinction of the abo * of the Australias appears » ° ^ e inevitable consequence of the seti of Europeans. Wherever the w.,ite man sets his foot the doom of the* coloured man is sealed. The extirpation of the natives of the Caribbee Islands, by the Spanish colonists, wa3 not so speedily accomplished as the extermina- tion of tho aborigines of these colonies by the English. Tasmania has already witnessed the entire annihilation of her ancient inhabitants ; and a similar destructive process has been going on over a wide area in this island-continent. As the stingless indigenous bee3 disap- peared under the invasion of the mor« formidable European species, so the original human possessors of the land die offbefore the intrusion of the whites. This melancholy result is assigned to the operation of a law of nature, and is, therefore, contemplated with philo- sophical complacency and indifference. The fate of extinct...

CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 27 April 1858

G B I 0 K E T. Ceickbt has become almost a mania amongst our hearty citizens, especially our native youth, and even our juveniles bave entered into the spirit of the gamo with an enthusiasm characteristic of its enjoyment. As we noticed in a recent issue, scarcely a School ia or near Hobart Town is without its Cricket Club, the youthful members of which are learned ia boirJiug, wide balls, byes, and other phraseology peculiar to the Cricket Field. Wo must ponfess that we are highly pleased at this proof of a predilection for so noble a game by our " rising generation,"-a game which we shall presently show is in every respect worthy of their attachment and friendly emulation. Thomas Hood, immortalized by his "Song of the Shirt," and pecu- liarly eminent for his "Dream of Eugene Aram," had a keen relish for athletic games and manly snorts, and I has thus described the hastening of a merry frpop of School-boys to the ' Cricket Field : 'Twos in the prime of Sammer time, An evening calm ...

THE MAILS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 28 April 1858

T H Bj M A I L S. I THE time for receiving tenders for the conveyance of the mails between Launceston and Hobart Town will expire on Friday. We would urge upon the Government the necessity for introducing a Clause rendering it compulsory upon the contractor to defer the hour of departure from Launceston whenever a steamer is signalled, and would reach the wharf within two hours, w;lh the English mails on board. The delay of a couple of hours in the arrival of the coach in town would be of no im- portance whatever compared with the great advantage of receiving the English mail sonae oine or ten hours earlier. Toe reason of the detention would be known, and jits necessity would be readily acknowledged by «ty plastes, Had the mail waited last evening for two or three hours, our merchants would have had their advices early this morning ; as it is, they cannot receive them until;ten o'clock' at night, We strongly urge tliiii suggestion upon the considera :on of ÍHe Government.
