The shopkeepers in Balaclava have all been ordered out of the town, and com« mandod to establish themselves on the ground lately occupied by tho Invalid Bat- talion. About five hundred wooden huta are already in store at Balaclava.

SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 2 May 1855

SYDNEY; We have Sydney Journals to the 21st ult. Considerable consternation, says the Herald, has keen excited within the last few days in commercial circles by assertions made in vari- ous quarters, without the slightest authority, to the effect that the Governor-General, taking into consideration the large decrease in the lost quarter's revenue, as compared with that of the corresponding quarter of 1854, intended to issue an immediate proclamation extending the present tariff ou all revenuable articles We added, that, under this impression, several houses had, within the previous two days, withdrawn large stocks from bond, and. that something approaching to a panic had been raised- The deficiency in the amount of the first quarter of the present year, as com- pared with that of 1854, was ?* shown tobe ¿62,592 13s 4d; and a rumour that the Gov- ernor-General hud determined Jo proclaim a new tariff seemed to have obtained general credence. Our contemporary then clearly points out th...

No. I. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 2 May 1855

No. I. CLASS-LEGISLATION, the usual re-source of Governments in the infancy of any Act needful to the prosperity of a young com- munity, although it cannot be said to be in itself unjust, is especially one of the instruments of the governing power which requires to be handled with caution and delicacy. Perhaps we may avoid the tedium of too much general reasoning by taking our clue from a particular instance In an early period of the English history, the monarch, Edward the Third, wo believe, invited over a body of .Flemish weavers, for the purpose of establishing their man- ufactures in our country. In so doing, Edward had an undoubted view to the I national prosperity. Without staying to ' specify what inducements he held out, it is sufficient for our argument to urge that he, or the Legislature in general, were at liberty, were even bound, to grant to those artizans such legal privileges or protection, as should form an actual equivalent for tue benefit to be derived from their l...

BREAM CREEK. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 2 May 1855

BREAM CREEK. WE have received the following interesting infor- mation respecting the above locality, from our correspondent : The Rev. James Norman, Episcopalian Minister of Sorell, visited this place on Sunday, the 22nd April, and performed Divine Service in the School-house, both morning and evening, to a largo congregation-56 in the morning aud 50 in the evening : the attendance would have basil larger had the people living at the outskirts of the settlement known that the Rev. gentleman intended to visit the place for that purpose. . He delivered two very impressive and touching sermons, which were listened to with very great attention. Mr. Norman is held in very high respect in this locality, from his long acquaintance with it,* and his readi- ness at all times to attend the spiritual wants of its inhabitants, but his extreme distance, (20 miles), the frequent impassable state of the roads, together with his other numerous spiritual calls, render it impossible for him to rmy th...

LOCAL NEWS . THE WnoNO CIIEIUIE.-William Turner, who was remanded on Saturday, on tho charge of pass- ing a wrong cheque, in payment to Mr. Lazarus, was brought up again on Monday, at the police office, when Mr. Chamberlain, of Brighton Plains, from whom he had received the cheque, was in at- tendance, and proved that the cheque, instead of being wrong, was all right ; the fault rested with the cashier of the bank.
