AN AMERICAN VIEW OF LORD PALMERSTON. From the New York Courier and Enquirer. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 12 August 1857
AIT AMERICAN VIEW Ou" LORD PALMERSTON. J From the New York Courier and Enquirer, Will Palmerston beat ? One cannot help taking a deep interest in the contort, even without reference to the political questions it decides. The prompt, uncon- querable spirit with which the Premier, wheu prostra- ted by the overwhelming combination of his antago- nists in the House of Commons, went forth to the country to give them battle there, and tho fact that he is combating, almost single-handed, a corps of tho very strongest men in all England, who have no common agreement in anything else, yet vin with each other in the determination to disable him, naturally excite a lively inturest in his favour. No public man in Eng- land, not oven, William Pitt, ever had to struggle against snch tremendous odds. Tho Tory champions, the Conservative champions, the Whig champions, and the Radical champions, Lord Derby und Disraeli, Gladstone and Graham, Lord John Russell and' Grey, Cobden and Roebuck, are all n...

THEATRE ROYAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 12 August 1857
THEATKE KOYAL. WE aro happy to announce the arrival of those celebrated performers Mr. and Mrs Cameron, whom the old Colonists will well remember as having been the Theatrical Pioneers of Tasmania, some 25 years ago at the Freemasons Tavern in Harrington-street. They were great favourites, and, deservedly so. It is their intention, as will be seen by advertisement, to give ona porfomanco on Tuesday evening nest, previous to their de pirture for Europe, as a farewell to thuir old Tasmania Patrons. The Messrs. Lewis and Sons hare, with great ltindness,and liberality, placed the Theatre at their disposal for that evening, when we hope to see that tho old hands have not forgotten those, who, in the early days of the Colony, and under great difficulties succeeded in establishing them- selves as general favourites, not only a3 per- formers, but as members of the community. We feel however that it is almost out of place to make an appeal on their behalf. Their own well known merit, and " A...

For some time past we hare held the opiuion that some- thing radically wrong existed either in the Act itself, or in the las mode of carrying its provisions into effect. Other matters, we now regret to say, obtruded thsmselves upon our attention ; and, we were induced to defer the consideration of the subject. The letter of our correspondent W.G-. has, however, brought the matter prominently before us again : and, we have,according to our promise, instituted a searching enquiry into the trade as it is now "legally" carried on in Tasmania. To express our feelings, as revelation after re- velation started up before us, would bo impos- sible. Indignation, shame, and humiliation followed each other in rapid succession...
