AN ELECTIONEERING DODGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 27 April 1855

AN ELECTIONEEBINGr DODGE. Wb take occasion to allude to au adver- tisement which appears in the columns of the Colonial Times, bearing us a signature a mere nome'de-guerre. The object of tne writer is clearly party spirit. But it is much to be regretter! that any man, for any party purpose, should lend his efforts to the revival of a question which is al- ready completely settled. The represen- tative of the party now raising an outcry against Mr. Lord for his opinions on tran- sportation, hud been much wiser had he reflected that there aro points on which every party is open to reproach and. there- fore, it is the real interest of all parties to merge past struggles in oblivion, and look at present objects alone. Mr. Lord's character, as a good member of society, is unimpeachable, and his stake in the well being of the country sufficiently large to warrant us, in our conviction, that his votes on political questions will be fair and honest. Does the advertising party wish to imply ...

GENERAL ENGLAND. (From the Spectator.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 27 April 1855

GENERAL ENGLAND. (From the Spectator.) The Times has fully justified itself in raising the question whether General Eng- land can be left in a post that appears to place him next to the chief command ; suc- cessor possibly, in case of an accident, to Lord Raglan. Our contemporary, when first drawing attention to the position of Sir Richard England, observed that he had not been known to face tho enemy mder fire, and that his position in tho reataf battles with the Russiajtf) tttd fclwav» been one towat ds the rear. A tahstitre of the General challenged UM ¿OftlBlt «rith »de- fence of Sir Richard ; and then out carne that case which had been befor« in the minds of many as a cause of surprise at Sir Richard's appointment to be even a General of Division, In the .spring of 1842, when posted iu Scinde. Sir Richard was ordered to convey reinforcement« of men, money, and ammunition, to Sr Wai. Nott at Candahnr. Twice Sir Richard approached the Kojuck Pas», at the end of March and at the e...

LATER EUROPEAN NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 27 April 1855

LATEE EUEOPEAN NEWS. The " City of Hobart" arrived last night bringing three days later news, which had been received at Melbourne by the "Annie Wilson," from Liverpool. We take fol- lowing from the Argus of Monday last. Tha most important announcement is that of the resignation of Lord John Rus- sell of his office as President of the Coun- cil. His Lordship not being prepared to resist a motion for enquiry into the con- duct of the war, regarded resignation as the only course open to him. Lord John had wished that the conduct of the war should be entrusted to Loid Palmciston, rather than to the Duke of Newcastle, and in his speech expresses his satisfaction at having been informed that the arrange- ment proposed by him wnslikely, at last, to be adopted. We extract from the Times of the 27th of January, an abstract of the Parliamentary proceedings of the previous evening, of the most important speeches made on the occasion. The war news is heartrending. The heart sickens, and the in...

FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. From the Times Correspondent, January. ' FRANCE. Paris, Jan. 25. 6 p.m. A letter from the frontier of Bessarabia, re - ceivcd within the last feiv days, speaks of numb«rless reinforcements of Russian troops, moving towards the Crimea. The plan of the enemy is said to he, first to crush the Turkish camp ut Eupatoria, and then to attack the Freneh and English armies,"und "if possible," drive them into the sea. The sume letter states that the Russians arc very sanguine of success, owing to the debilitated state of the English army.

Now, such an expression coining from any other person might be worthy of some consideration ; but, emanating ai it does from one whose seat in the Legislature of the Colony-is of very slight tenure and who will be unable again to obtain it, when a " dissolution" takes place, can only bo considered as a piece of vain and impudent boasting.

But we are quite aware that iu ventur- ing on the free discussion of any time hallowed abuse, we have to encounter not only the interested opposition of thoso who are benefited thereby, but tliat Ave have to remove those feelings from the minds of the conscientious supporters of such a mode of paying for religious in- struction, which though in general really prejudices, have taken bo deep a hold that they perhaps deserve to be treated with delicacy and caution. Nor are we desirous of speaking lightly on this subject con- nected, as it is, with our most vital inter- ests. Still a due ...
