I would joggest to the authorities the necessity of being very strict ¡n suppressing this evil ol' Sabbath breaking,'for it is well known that ¡t is ibe source of mnny of the fliigiant vices which nie found in a commu- nity, mid I bel'eve I am right in faying that many of the most desperate characters, such as murderers and t...

SIR.-I am one of the unfortunate; I have   just had a visit from the bushrangers. On   Saturday night, about 7 o'clock, I had just returned from Bothwell, and was seated comfortably by the fire, when three armed men rushed into the room-Daniel Stuart alias Wingy, Billy Flowers, and Sydney Jim. They immediately presented a loaded   revolver at my head, telling me that they would shoot me if I did not allow myself to be tied quietly. After tying me and the only man that I had about the place, they ransacked the house, taking with them every article of value; while two of them searched the housr the other kept guard over me with a revolver in his hand. After they had helped themselves to what they wanted, they made the servant get tea ready for them,...

Same day sighted the barque Nautilus, lier boats in chase of whales off Macquarie H.irbor. The Aladdin, whaling barque, hauled off from the Now Wharf yesterday morning into stream. THE SEA SERPENT. -- The sea serpent has reappeared. Captain Harrington, of the ship Castillan, has communicated to the Times a copy of an extract from the Board of Trade Meteoro- logical Journal, dated "December 12, 1857,   north-east end of St. Helena, bearing north-   west, distance ten miles." From this it appears that an immense serpent-like monster had been   seen moving slowly through the water within   twenty yards of the ship. The head and neck   were about ten or twelve feet out of the water, and they would occasionally dip down, and then reappear. Several of the crew thought that the creature mu...

THE REFUGEE CLIQUE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 5 May 1858

THE REFUGEE CLIQUE. Tlie question as to the duty of England in respect of that abominable clique ol refugees to whose infernal machinations in lins country the recent attempt upon the life pf 'he French £¡mpeior must ,le atti ibuted is one that cannut be ignored cither by rulers or people. It is beyon doubt a question of great intricacy and perplexity. Difficult it ever must be to determino wheie under the circumstances of these exiles mere political offences end and. criminal pues bej>iu ; but it would be a disgrace fo England to shirk it because of its difficulty. The line that separates the meie political exile from the plotting traitor is discoverable, and it should be drawn and made clear 'to all eyes. Never let it be said that England refuses sanctuary to the victims of poljtipal chai'gps in any part of the world.
