THE VERY REVEREND THEOBALD MATHEW. The celebrated Irish philanthropist, died on the 8th of December, full of years and renown ; and all parties seem to unite in mourning bis loss. A respectable Protes- tant journal, the Carle Constitution, publishes the following obituary : "Yesterday paused from among us, n man who filled a 1 irge space in the eye-not ol Cork only, but ol' the world. His reputation was not Irish or English, but European and American. By multitudes in every land his name was syllabltid and his memory revered, und by tens of thousands will both be hallo- wed for resolutions inspired and for benefits enjoyed. We speak not of Mr. Mathew as a friar or as a priest. Whatever our objec- tions to hi« creed, his motive«, we beliove, we e iiiiglt'» hi* humanity was genuine, and his beuevoleOiCd was great.

VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 20 February 1857
VICTORIA. By the City of Hobart we have advices from the above colony, to Tuesday last : upon the subject of the "official changes," The Argus has the following : We understand that Mr. Michie has declin- ed the Atlorney-Gdneralship, and that the office has been accepted by Mr Fellows, the present Solicitor-General, who according to usage, is entitled to promotion from the post of second to that of first law officer of the crown in case of a vacancy. It was rumoured in town yesterday that Mr Adamson had ac- cepted the Solicitor-Generalship. It was also reported that Mr Goodman had been appoint- ed to succeed Mr. Saldan (who is going to England) in the Treasury. We believe it has not yet been determined who is to be the lo cum fenens of Mr. Childers during the tempo- rary absence of thai gentleman. We have no doubt that the appointment of Mr. M'Culloch would give great satisfaction to the mercantile community. Mercantile affairs during the week have pre- sented no appearance of impro...

BARON ALDEÜSOX Olí TICKBT-OF LEAVE. At the opening of the winter assizes for South Lancashire at Liverpool, on Monday, Mr. Baron Alderton delivered an unusuullv lengthy charge, tho principal topics of bil address being the ticket-of-leave system, transportation, and the reformation of crimi- nals. Alter the usual complimentary phrase« to the graud jury, bis lordship said : -Gentle« men, you will find a good many-I dou'fc know how many cases-in which people hava been pardoned, so to speak, and come back into the world with what is called at' promeut a ticket-of-leave, which certainly seemi to me-in its effects 1 mean-an uuwise propo- sition.

THE LATE MASSACRE AT NEW CALEDONIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 20 February 1857
THE LATE MASSACRE AT NEW CALEDONIA. By way of Sydney wo have further infor- mation respecting the late massacre of the French colonists of New C iledouia. - We have endeavoured to ot>&lt;aiii more com- plete detail» ol this horrible affair, but have little to add to the brief notice of it in our yesterday's issue. The liiaok Dog sailed so very soon afternrardsj that although active ex- ertions were in progrei-s for searching out the ta ises and the perpetrators ol' this butchery, little or nothing ol' a definite character could be known. &lt; It is quite true that eleven Frenchmen were assassinated, and that one ol them was Monsieur Bernrd, formerly, (not Commis-ury Gcner.d of the French settlements in the Pacific, but) an officier of the French navy. How many of the Vate or sandwich Island natives have perished is not yet known, hut so many bodies ol these men as were mentioned in yesterday's Herald (l4orl.>) had not buen discovered.

THE MERCURY. íiJublíoIirtJ ítloníiaij, ÜBcbncsoaa Atfrfoaí FRIDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY 20, 1857. Tur result of the debate on Wednesday, evening terminated,¡is might have been an- ticipated, in the resignation of the Min- istry. The Colonial Secretary, with something of asperity, stated the motives which led to the course adopted by him- self and his colleagues. They looked upon the resolution, Carried in the As- sembly of the 11th i stant, tending to a reduction in the salaries of the Governor and the principal officers of the Execu- tive, as also tending to a public breach of faith, and, with a laudable aversion to any sucli dishonesty, threw up their places, rather than be parties to it. We need scarcely say, that we look upon all this as a piece of special plead- ing-not of the most skilful kind. In the first place, the Constitution wa3grant- ed to the Colony, on condition that c.ir t in officers of the Exccutive,holding pat- ent places, were protected from injury by the change, Thi...
