CITY ARTICLE. Mercury Office, Saturday Evening [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 3 August 1857

CITY ARTICLE. Mercury Office, Saturday Evening I There is some little activity in the spirit market, and large quantities of brandy have bien exported to Melbourne. Brandy still retains its high price of £1 and £1 Is. per gallon, yet much is not sold to colonial purchasers. Rum maintains its old price 5s.6d. to 6s.Gd.per gallon,and continues to be the favourite spit it in the market; buyers of brandy are wailing for a decline in the price, but there teems no prospect of it at present.

THE MERCURY j^uhltshcu íHoirtmu, öartmeiäoaji tt JFtíbau MONDAY MORNING, AUGUST 3m> 1857. Ik our issue of this day will be found a full report of the trial-the Queen, at the prosecu- tion of T.a. Geegsob-, v Haw,. It will be seen that, after having been locked up for the 12 hours required by law, the jury was dis- charged--five, we believe, wishing to return a verdict for the Crown,and seven for the defen- dant. A result similar to this we had all along anticipated. There is something so i opugnant to British feeling-something so obnoxious to one's notions of justice ¡md equity in the pre- sent Law of Libel as it oxists in Tasmania, that we should have been surprised had the result been otherwise. The jury saw at a glance that they were required to convict a fellow Citizen of publishing a "false and mali- cious libel," without having one iota of evi- dence before them to show whether it was a "false and malicious libel," or not. These pro- ceedings do not require one comment at o...
