THE LAUNCESTON MAIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 5 May 1858

THE LAUNCESTON MAIL. The tenders for conveying the Mails between Hobart Town and Launceston were opened on Monday last. There were five tenders sent in, one of which, however, merely tendered for con- veying the Mails for one portion of the distance, and, consequently, was not entertained. Of the remaining four the highest was for £5000, and the lowest for £2900. This last tender was made by Mr. Samuel Page, jun., and was, being the lowest, accepted. We believe the contract will extend over a period of three years.

THE RICHMOND CONTROVERSY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 5 May 1858

THE RICHMOND CONTROVERSY. WE have received several communica- tions, both pro and con, relative to the controversy which has been for some time past going on at Richmond be- tween Messrs. Villeneuve Smith, Wilmot, and Butcher. We must decline to insert any of them. The misunderstanding to which they refer has been finally set at rest ; and no possible good that we can see can accrue from keeping the matter continually before the public. The gross attack upon Mn. Smith in the leading columns of a morning contem- porary can do that gentleman no harm.   The animus is so painfully evident, and the malignity so rabid, as to prevent the possibility of such abuse doing injury to any one but the writer. We cannot see the utility or the wisdom of prostituting tbe columns of'the public journals to the gratification of private and personal enmities. It may make people laugh to read a host of well strung sentences about .' honor" and "satisfaction" and such like childish bombast ; ...

THE MERCURY WEDNESDAY, MAY 5TH, 1858. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 5 May 1858

CHE MERCURY WEDNESDAY, MAY 5m, 1858. WITH a Chinese War just opened and an Indian AV.u- only now happily sub- siding, our readers will be naturally de sirous of obtaining an early insight into the provisions contemplated for the Mi- litary and Naval sen ices during the ensuing year. The Estimates just laid before Parliament supply this informa- tion very completely, and a few compic hensivo statistics will at onoe explain the anangements which have been de- vised co meet 'the exigencies of our presonl position. As to the totals, the aggregate outlay last year upon all the threo_departments of Army, Navy, and Ordnance was about £19,030,000 ; this year it is .ihout £20,000,000, the Army (Ordnance included^taking 1V3 millions, and the Navy absorbing the balance. lu the distribution of the increase, however, the latter se'rvice is accountable for the larger share ; in fact, the whob of the additional million may, be almost thrown upon the Navy, as the excess upon the Army is but some £9...

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

THE REFUGEE QUESTION. "Count WaleWüki," says a Paris letter in the Nord of BrusseW, " sent off on the 22nd a note to England, Belgium, Sardinia, and Switzerland, demanding, in the name of the French Government, certain measures respecting relugees which may prevent the renewal of attempts at assassination. Everything," adds the letter, " leads to the belief" tli.it satisfaction will be given to the French government." In all that has been said by those who, in England and in Fiance, cry out for the instant expulsion of political refugees from English soil, and who pretend to lie scandalised at the " protection" 'given to assassins, the main point is always passed over. No one wishes either to protect assassins or to save them from condign punishment. But first prove to-us who arc the assassins and the accomplices of assassins who are ¡.till covered by English law. England does not " protect" those people, but English law will not punish men as assassins until their guilt is establis...

THE MINISTRY AND THE MERCURY. A Contemporary who holds a patent for slander and for wilful misrepresentation, has, in au article replete witli its accus- tomed invective, insinuated that this Journal "lrom some unexpected cause, has changed the tone of its politics in so sudden a manner, as to make us at least suspicious of the eause of the con- version." In support of this alleged tergiversation wo are twitted with oui observations condemnatory of the dcl.vy which lins taken place in proceeding with the Public Works selected for com- pletion, and of one or two other matters which have recontly arisen, and in which we have deemed the Ministry blame able. We cm easily understand the cause of the imputation by our contemporary of improper motives in the matter. An independent, straightforward, candid courue in politics is unknown to bim or, if not unknown, beyond his d iring to accomplish.
