FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 30 April 1858
FRANCE. The attempt upon the life of the Im- perial ruler of France, announced to the readers of the Argus in my letter of the 101 h ult., has' made / quite a stir in Europe, as might naturally be expected : and it 1ms also, which could not have been so readily foreseen, disturbed the concord and cordiality which has for some time past been springing up be- tween us and the French people, and engendered a great deal of irritation and acrimony on both sides of the ehaitn.-l. It is sincerely to bj hoped that the mis- understanding will speedily pass away ; but as tilings stand at present, a rupture between the two Governments is by no means an impossible contingency. Our confidence that such a calamity will be averted is based on the accredited mode- ration and good sense of the IJinperor. The c.iuse of this complication will appear as I proceed with the narration of the events which have grown out of the unsuccessful conspiracy that was to have plunged Franco and Europe into the frig...
LATEST EUROPEAN. MARRIAGE OF THE PRINCESS ROYAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 30 April 1858
LATEST EUROPEAN. MARRIAGE OF THE PRINCESS ROYAL. The return of this spirit of choerful ness has, perhaps, been accelerated by an event which has recently occurred among us of deep domestic interest. 1 refer to the marriage of the Princess Victoria to Prince Frederick William of Prussia. It would scarcely be possible to exaggerate the almost affectionate interest with which this incident in Court history has been regarded by all classes of the community-from the nobles who have participated in the fes- tivities of the occasion to the obscurest artisans or seampstresscs who have boin content to catch a few glimpses of the pageants. Eighteen years have elapsed since a similar celebration was witnessed in England, and that was on the occasion of the union of our gracious Queen with a Prince who lias never given us a mo- ment's regret at the alliance then con sumtnafced amidst conflicting hopes and fears. Eíf.ieúig another interval of 20 years, wo are transported to the wedding day of th...

CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 30 April 1858
CHINA. The following is the only item worth extracting from the China papers : II.M.S.S. Inflexible left Hong Kong on tlie 20th February, for Calcutta, with Yeh on bo'ird. It had been disco- vered that a plot bad been formed for his escape, through the cabin window. A comprador had been offered 20,000 spd. to communicate between him nnd his friends on shore. The Canton Chi nose continue to decline trading till the allies depart, and some were again lea- ving, alarmed at foreign names-to the streets being placarded, aud a foreign police established. The villago bravees I threatened an attack but had prudently ' put it off till the luth instant, when they w ill of course find good reasons for a further postponement. It is now pretty ge-icrally understood that the four Plenipotentiaries of Great Britain, France, the United States, and Russia, proceed northward about the middle of March, in expectation of meeting at Shanghae an Imperial Com- missioner fiom Pekin; and that it is consider...
THE EUROPEAN CONTINENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 30 April 1858
THE EUROPEAN CONTINENT. There is at the present time little of in- terest to report from the various continental States, the Italian conspiracy mid its fruits thrusting every matter of minor importance into the shade. Austria and liussia, it is believed, aie availing themselves of the exist- ing exasperation between England and France, to widen the threatened breach and to seduce the Emperor from his inconvenient good fellowship with a constitutional Govern- ment. 'I ho enormity of our tolerating the presence of men kHown to be engaged in the trade of plotters against Continental Sove- reigns is dwelt upon with all the bitterness to bo expected from such quarters. According to the Court Journal, there is a rumor afloat of an anticipated change in the temporal government of Rome, likely to create surprise. Some talk of the approaching abdication of the Pope as a settled thing, and Father Ventura, General of the Jesuits, is spoken of as his probable successor. The no- mination of the ...

lÀD-VXimSE5rsNT/| To the Editor of the Hobart Town Daily Mercury. Richmond, 28lh April, 1858 jSm,-In your newspaper of Wednesday the 22nd inst., there appears n report of certain proceedings that took place in tho Police Court here. With mine part of that malicious attack against two other Magistrates and myself, I am not called upon to interfere ; hut to give j our readers some idea of the general trutbfu'ness that characterises that onslaught, I shnll place in juxtaposition certain documents, bearing upon the state- ment put forth in the 4th paragraph-by which the tacit testimony of Messrs Beckley, Barton, and Constable Elliott, is shewn-to- gether with the negative evidence of Messrs, Birchall aud Rolls, and the admission of Mr. M'Connon. I think these certificates will at once prove the unscrupulousness of any one professing to hold tho position of a gentleman, duiing to put them 'brth as flatly contradicting the statements made by Messrs Wilmot, Coverdale, mid myself, supported...

CRICKET MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 30 April 1858
CRICKET MEETING. The great impetus given to cricket hy tha match between Hobart Tewn and Victoria, which took piece two months ago, has re- sulted in something tangible and substantial. Since that period the enthusiasm for this noble and manly game has been steadily on the increase amongst all classes of the community. The enthusiasm has spread not only to the vast majority of the youth of Hobart Town, anti to the old cricketers who in former times loved t> handle the bat when Pilch and Felix were in their prime, hut also to many who heretofore have been strangers to the game, and think that it is not too late, even in their riper year«, to make amends for thoir previous ignorance and apathy in respect to cricket. The effects of this enthusiasm have been already felt, and the great meeting of Wednesday evening is its crowning achievement. The meeting was held in the Temperance Alliance Room;, Macquarie-stroet, and had been convened for the special purpo-c of forming "The Tasmania...
