THIRTY-ONE DAYS' LATER NEWS FROM ENGLAND. SUMMARY. (From the Home News.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 12 January 1858

THIRTY-ONE DAYS' LATER NEWS FROM ENGLAND. SUMMARY. (From the Some News.) THE last news from India has been re- ceived in England with demonstrations of universal enthusiasm. As soon as the Government were in possession of the gratifying intelligence that Delhi had fallen and Lucknow had been relieved, telegraphic messages were transmitted to all parts of the kingdom, and the booming of cannon and the hoisting of flags annou'iced to the people that the tide of victory bad at last fully turned in our favour. It is true this gloiious news is dashed by some melancholy inci- dents. The death of Nicholson and Neill, two of the ablest soldiers in the service, and the loss of a great number of gallant officers, and of nearly 2000 men, in these two actions alone, attest the heavy cost at which we have achieved the successes which may be said to lay a new foundation of our In- dian empire. But it was not to be hoped that a handful of Europeans scattered in small parties over a vast ter- ritor...

THEATRE ROYAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 12 January 1858

THEATRE ROYAL   Last night, as we predicted, the Theatre Royal was crowded. The   pieces performed were selections from the Operas of Elixir of Love, and the Barber of Seville. We have no room to particularize the many excellences which marked the performances of these gifted artistes. The whole was admirable, and elicited loud and reiterated applause. This evening, and for this evening only, the splendid Opera of Ernai will be repeated, under the patronage of Col. Percival and the Officers of the 12th Regiment. We would strongly urge those, who have not yet heard this ta- lented Company, to avail themselves of this opportunity.

THE OVERLAND MAIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 13 January 1858

THE OVERLAND MAiL. The arrangement« entered into by the Royal Australian Mail Company, with the Home Government for the transmission of the monthly mails, has been a failure. To shew that we do not complain without n siiflicient cause, it is only necessary to state that the mail tor the mouth of October, was thirty three days overdue, when it arrived at Hobson's Bvy. This irregulority puts a stop at once, lo all mercantile pursuits ; mid is the cause ot incalculable mischief and disaster. Consignments are arriving in the colonies, the bills of lading for which weic forwuided by the Overland Mail, and have only just come to bond. Our mer- chants ure kept waiting for advices, in the absence of which, ' all business transactions would become a mere lottery.
