LATEST ENGLISH. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 1 May 1858

LATEST ENGLISH. Wc continue our summary from the latest journals In advance of the great discussion on the now India Bill, the petition of the East India Company was brought for- ward in the Commons on the 9th Feb- ruary by Mr. Thomas Baring, and in the Lords on the 11th, by Earl Grey. The Company, to use an old proverb, have not suffered the grass to grow under the'r feet. Nor have they limited their resistance to the allegations and argu- ments of the petition. Within the week they issued a Leadenhall-street Blue-book containing a memorandum of the improvements they have introduced into India during the last 30 years ; an armoury from whence their advocates in Parliament may draw a variety of weapons. The great measure " for the better Government of India" was brought for- ward by Lord Palmerston on the 12th of February in a speech of great power, closeness of argument, and lucidity of detail. A notion had got abroad some days previously that Government had considerably modified t...

COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE. CITY ARTICLE. Mercura Office, Saturday afternoon. The arrival of the English Mail has produced a favorable effect upon the market. Advices from home show that the shipments of goods * Tor this colony have not been very extensive, and in consequence a firmer tone pervades busi- ness generally. - Inspirits transactions this week have boon_ snore than usually numerous.

THE JORDAN ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 3 May 1858

THE JORDAN ELECTION. A mobntno Contemporary has again re-asserted that Mr. Maclanachan will come forward as a Candidate for the representation of the Jordan District in the Legislative Council ; and has .-eized the opportunity of speaking of Mr. Isaac Bisdee in no very complimentary terms. When we last contradicted this statement we did so on the authoiity of a lettpr from Mr. Maclanachan him. self, addressed to a Merchant of this City, in which letter he most positively and distinctly declined ;o be placed in nomination. So far from the now reiterated statement of his intention to present himself being correct, it is abso. solutely without foundation. We have seen another letter from Mr. Maclanachan dated so late as the 28th of April,and addressed to a private friend of considerable influence in town, is which he states that written applications had been forwarded to him from several gentlemen residing in the Jordan Distiict, requesting that he would allow himself to be placed in n...

THE MERCURY MONDAY, MAY 3RD. 1858. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 3 May 1858

THE MERCURY MONDAY, MAY 3ud. 1858. Notwithstanding the interest which attaches to tnost of the items of British and Foreign news come to hand by the " Columbian," there is one item to which we cannot but think pre-eminence ought to be given. Its high importance may not be apparent to those who look upon the actions of the earth's po- tentates apart from the effect which those actions will inevitably produce. When viewed in this latter aspect, the launch of the " Leviathan," the marriage of the Princess Royal, nay, even the rebellion in India itself, sink into comparative insignificance by the side of the mad proceedings of the Emperor of the French. We should question our right to the name of Britons did we not feel in- dignant at the gratuitous insults which have been offered to us as a nation by Louis Napjleon, a man who was himself indebted to our hospitality for a safe refuge when in exile. The very laws which afforded him shelter iu distress have been made the vehicle for heapi...

HOUSE OF COMMONS, FEB. 5. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 3 May 1858

HOUSE OF COMMONS, Fe*. 5. The Speaker took the chair ut a few minutes before four o'clock. , ADDRESS TO HER MAJESTY ON THE MAR- RIAGE OF THE FBINCESS ROYAL. Lord PALMERSTON (the other orders of the day having been suspended) proceeded to move an address to her Majesty on the marriage oí the Pi in cess Royal. The noble lord adverted to the enthusiasm which had been dis- played in bidding farewell to the Prill cess Boyal amidst falling snow and piercing winds, and passed a Ililli eu login ni upon the character of the royal biide. It frequently happened in royal marriages that the parlies knew nothing more of each "other than was conveyed to them in consequence of political considerations, but in this case the royal couple had had the advantage of knowing each other for a long period, and of kuowin ; each other's c ha i icier, which proved the suroît foundation for their futu'6 happiness. No argument was necessary to içouinmond this ad il i ess to the house, and'he would iherefoie humb...

LATEST ENGLISH. The government had added to the odium which Lord Clanricarde imparted into the cabinet, by appointing Lord George Paget Inspector of Cavalry in India and creating the otlice for him. Not that the .Ministry was any weaker in fact, and at present Lord Palmerston was to all intents and purp ises Dictator It was commonly reported that the Leviathan was moi tgugud so deeply that no funds could be raised to fit her out ; I and that she was being exhibited at j half-a-crown a head, and funds may be raised in that way. j A horse was sold at Lincoln' lately, after a new fashion,, namely at 3s. 6d. per stone, shoes included.

Upwards of two hundred convicted mutineers have already been started off, but as'it was impossible to provide,- ai if by magic, for the custody of such a gang, almost in the wilderness, arrangements have been mado for their temporary rocoption at Amherst Jail at the mouth of the Maulmein river, which has been cleaned out for the purpose. It is perfectly isolated, and a Company of Europeans and one of Sepoys will be1 ample to guard the prisoners, of whom the jail can hold five hundred. Captain, Mann goes at once to Port Bliir'to clear, tho island, which if woll drained might be occupied with safety after the mon- soon. Every, thing is represented as baing quito...

It appears to me that we have before us two ques- tions :-first, does the law require any alteration ? sec mdly, is this the right time and the light mode of making it ? Before I address my«ell to the first of these questions, I will ask the housu to eoi'sider with me the rial question of our oountry at the present time.
