THE SALMON FOR AUSTRALIA. TO THE EDITOR OP THE ARGUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 24 October 1860

THE SALMON FOR AUSTRALIA. TO THE EDITOR OP THE ARGUS. Sir,-By the lost mail we received the news of the disastrous result of our salmon experiment by the S. Curling. Mortifying as the intelligence is, it is not all bad. To get ova alive to SSáeg. south latitude is in itself a triumph, and H shows tho practicability of the scheme itself. A little moro ice, a little moro experience, and the thing is done. It is a -case in which we must fall back upon a principie to wliich I have before given expression, to the effect that in experiments of this nature the essential effort is, not to send o few animals to sea, but to bear up against rebufa, and be contented to try again. I wish, while there is yet time, to direct attention to what is necessary for a renewal of the experiment during the forthcoming season. Wo secured these ova, without much difficulty, towards the end of tho month of February, although that is rather late in the spawning season, whian begins in November. It is better to...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 24 October 1860

I TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. Sut.-I perceive by theanuouucoineut of meetings hold by tho journeyman masons of Hobart Town, that they have awoke from their lethargy, nnc1 have becoijiu alive to their own interests at last; Itis higji timo' they did, for the manner iii which* buildings are being tendered for, and sub-let iu various instances down to the mechanic, involves a question both for the mechanic and the owners of buildings, Now, Mr, Editor, I would, ask what ia the Qau3e? Simply the want of union and the depres- sion qf tvide, Being a stone mason myself, I entirely deprecate sub-letting contracts altogether, for this reason : a gentleman wishing to build a house calls for tenders. Mr. A. or B.'s tender is accepted; but does Mr. A. or B, sot about and employ tradesmen to build it at fair day'« wages ? No, Knowing well that families must have bread, ho takes the advantage of dull trade and calls upoii some tradesman of known ability, shews him the plans, tells him to îuako o...

THE EXPEDITION TO CHINA. (TIMES.) [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 24 October 1860

THE EXPEDITION TO CHINA. (times.) By this time the Plenipotentiaries und arma monts of England and fiance must have reached that we|l-l;no\vn spot where, eighteen months ago, Lord Elgin and Baron Gros were delibera- ting upon the best means of obtaining a treaty with China. In that same yollow, shallow sea, scarcely in sight of tho low, Dutch-looking coast, yet wjth only a few inches of water under their keels, Eng'ish and French men*of-war at o once again gathered together. Some of them must have been there n considerable time, for the correspondence of tho Moniteur tells us that the Dryade, the Jura, and the Rhone left Shanghai for the Gulf of Pecholi on the 31st of May, a,od tho information which reached Shanghai on the 23rd of Juno gives tbo names of 40 British and l8 French vessels of war as being then " at the north."

INDIA. Wo have Bombay papers to the 14th ot Sep- tember, and Calcutta to the 3th. The Bengal Hurkaru says that discontent, dissatisfaction, and dis>rustmay be said to be the normal state of India at present. The Euro- peans in this Presidency are getting up meetings and forming associations at present, with more immediate reference to the Arais Act, but ulti - mately with the view of resisting the present course of legislation which is tending towards the Black Acts, and will deprive them of the protection of English criminal law, English courts, trial by jury, and other safeguards which alone have enabled timm hitherto to exist and | carry on business in the interior of the country. If these are taken from them, their lives and liberties will bo subjected to the Moi'ussi courts, where, by the admission of the civil service itself, perjury, forgery, und bribery reign uncontrolled ; und to the jurisdiction of native magistrates, who, both Hindoo and Mshnniedan, hate the Europeans,...

WESTERN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 24 October 1860

I WESTERN AUSTRALIA. Discoveries of Land Fir for Squatting Pur poses.-The desire to discover more land suitable for squatting stations has been entertained by many settlers of York district with great ardour, and to the east of York they have demonstrated that some promising tracts of land might be hit upon. Some of the explorers have been remark- ably successful. Mr. Edward Lennard, in his travels, came upon the same tract of good country mentioned by the Messrs. Dempster as lying south from their outward course, whoro was "the best feed they had seen," and called by the nntives Nnl yering. Mr. Lennard found there a splendid run of 10,000 acres, well suited for horses, cattle, or sheep, the gross in many places growing three feet high. Nalyering is supposed to lie about 90 miles E.N.E. from Beverley. Messrs. Charles and William Smith, of Beverley, have also made some promising discoveries. They have discovered and taken a run about 100 mués east from York. The most remote stations ...
