Another weeli, says tho Herald, has been allied tq the apparently interminable session of Parliament, a'id anotlwr remarkable chapter to our national annals. Two memorable events have signalised the pa=t week,-the carrying uf the squatting clauses in the Land B,ill, und the dissolution of the Convention, The stephen street murder, or rather the fate of tile supposed murderers, continues to excite much interest. It was expected that they would be examined at the City Court on Saturday, and for some time before ten. o'clock the Court-house doo.rs wei<e heset hy u large crowd of poisons, anxious to obtain admittance. The constables on duty, however, succeeded in maintaining good order, and the moment the front door was opened there, was a tre- mendous rush, an,d the space outside the, barrier was quickly crammed, the crush ex- tending to the outer porch, It soon became khoivn tliat iii consequence of the non-arrival ...

SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 14 August 1857

SYDNEY. The Sydney papers are to the 4th inst., but do not contain any commercial news of note. The Empire reports of the state of affairs : Trade continues very dull, and the bad news of the floods throughout the country has had a depressiag effect on business generally. There can be.no doubt but that In many cases the storekeeper in the country as well as the fanner wfij have to submit to heavy lo*«*, and that for some time to come they must feel a mon etsry pressure ; we do not, however, anticipate any dis- astrous results,or that they w ill be of very I0113 duration. The markets in Melbourne set in to be much glutted, and money appears to bo decidedly tight, although therein existed a good deal of speculation in shares joint-stock companies. Spirits are very dull, and we not'ce a considerable decrease in the consumption of brandy and rum during the month of July this year, as compared with the same rao ith nflaît year, the decrease boin'» about 3,831 gal. lons of brandy, and 12,...

No. 2 ._, OiTE remarks upon the present pernicious , mode of conducting the trade of a Pawnbro j| ker in this Colony, have evoked a response, so ' hearty and s°pontaneous,as to convince us that v our own estimate of its iniquity was far below the reality. That the system was bad-radi '' cally bad-we were well persuaded of before . ?. but, we confess we were quite unprepared to / learn theamountof rascality.fraud, and cruelty, which has been perpetrated under the protec ? tion of a Pawnbroker's license. We have well accredited statements of cases now lying beforo us, which have been forwarded for publication if necessary. It seems as if the victims of this giant evil had only been awaiting the op ) portunity of making themselves heard. "Wa have been, on all sides, surrounded by persons anxious to relate some startling "fact" in con- nection with the trade ; and, we are now in a , po...

SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 14 August 1857

SYDNEY. We have intelligence from New South Wales to the 4th instant. The floods in the Hawkesbury and Mait- land districts were subsiding at the last advices. The settlers have, however, suffered severely, and, as will be seen by the subjoined extract, rumours of loss of life were current. A cor- respondent of the Sydney Morning Herald gives the following information : SATURDAY, 10 O'CLOCK A.M.-The people who left here for Maitland yesterday, returned last evening, up to which time the waters continued to rise, although but slowly, the rise being confined to some three inches during the day. The appearance from the heights, near East Maitland, was one of wide-spread desolation, the surface of the low lands in every direction being covered many feet deep in water, above which the tops of houses were observable, on which signals of distress were flying, the inhabitants waiting their opportu- nities to be observed by those in the boats and rescued. The boats, manned by Newcastle volun...

LOOAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 14 August 1857

LOCAL NEWS. THE BUSKIN AND SOCK.—The word Bus- kin is the translation of the Greek and Latin word Cothur- nus, which signifies a high healed shoe or boot, used by the Greek and Roman tragic actors to give an appearance of elevation to their stature, in conjunction with the mask and other stage-properties. Cothurnus, in Latin, is used in contra-distinction to Soccus, the f lat-soled shoe worn by comedians. Hence, in English authors, the words buskin and sock are often used for the tragic and comic drama. So Dryden :— " Great Fletcher never treads in buskin here, Nor greater Jonson dares in socks appear." "Things Not Generally Known. THE LOANS OF THE ROTHSCHILDS.—The loans negotiated by the Rothschilds since the beginning of the European war are enormous. They reach the enormous amount of five hundred and fifteen Millions, viz.:—To England 800,000,000 dollars; to Turkey, 40,000,000 dollars ; to Austria, 120,000,000 dollars ; a   first loan to Russia, 130,000,000 dollars ;...
