THOSE of our readers who sympathise with our crusade against 'the present iniquitous system of pawnbroking, will be glad to hear that the matter lias been taken up in a quarter from which alone any practical relief from its enormous evils can be obtained. We have reason to know that our strictures have at- tracted tho attention of the Government ; and, we believe, that, on the re-assembling of Parliament, an Act will be introduced, which will regulate the amount of intereit to be in future exacted by the Pawnbrokers. We do not pretend to deny that we feel proud and gratified at being instrumental in dealing the death-blow to this most pernicious and ruin- ous trade-pernicious and ruinous, we mean, as at present conducted.

THE TOPIC OF THE DAY. [No. 5.] THE LAND QUESTION. "Good reasons must, of force, give place to better." —JULIUS C[?]SET. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 17 August 1857

THE TOPIC OF THE DAY. [No. 5.] THE LAND QUESTION. .Good reasons must, of force, giro place to better.' -JÜLTOS a*jír. HOWEVER desirable it would be that unity should prevail upon the leading features of a Land scheme ; yet would it show a great lack of earnestness, were we to find an easy ac- quiescence in any series of propositions until they had been well canvassed by the Com- munity.- There is no fear, however, that too much harmony will exist ; for there are dis- sentient symptoms apparent, even to the moderate views expressed in these letters, and indeed against any new scheme whatever. Yet a new scheme must he devised, and that of a comprehensive character, which the necessities and altered circumstances of the Country absolutely demand. We have in Tasmania a number of well in tentioned persons who persuade themselves that every kind of inducement should be held out to the labouring classes, even without re- gard to their meaus; believing that the pros- pect of ownership would...

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 17 August 1857

MISCELLANEOUS. FIREPROOF GARMENTS.-Some curious ex- periments have just taken place at Palis to test a new contrivance for protecting firemen from the action of the flames, and enabling them to resist a strong heat. It consists of gloves made of amianthus, a kind of filamen tuous mineral, a helmet of the same material fitting into ¡mother of wire-gause, and a shield one metre in length nnd eighty centimetres broad, besides other garments of the above mentioned materials. Three firemen having put on the gloves, were enabled to carry iron bars at a white heat for three minutes, without being obliged to let go their hold. Straw was afterwards set fire to in a cast« iron cauldron, and continually kept uq, while a fireman wearing the double helmet above mentioned stood above the flames, which ha warded off with the shield. Although they rose above his head, he was enabled to keep his post for a minute and a. half, at the end of which time hispulsc, which was at 72 before the experiment, ...

GOVERNMENT DEBENTURES. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 17 August 1857

GOVERNMENT DEBENTURES. ^'HESE can be no more accurate test of pop talar opinion with regard to the administration ^*f a government, than the estimate formed by l^fce public of the value of its securities. The ^tenders which have been forwarded for D¿ben- j r tures to the Immigration Commissioner?, is ijjthe best reply which can he given to all the ¡»»bid abuse which disappointed ambition can %eap upon the present administrators of our Ëiirs.

THE NORTH-WEST PASSAGE AND THE OPEN SEA AT THE POLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 17 August 1857

THE NORTH-WEST PASSAGE AND, THE OPEN SEA AT THE POLE. Lieutenant Maury recently delivered a lec- ture at New Orleans on "The North-West Passage and the Open Sea at the Pole."   " The first idea of a northwest passage had its origin in what might be termed the age of geographical discovery. The crusades had opened the subject of geography, but merely whetted the appetite for further knowledge. The go-a-head spirit of the present age is some- what akin to what was then felt, and the de- sire for discovery on leaving the Holy Land embarked with Columbus and the early navi- gators. The songs of the first travellers in the New World surpassed the strains of the Troubadours, and stimulated others to seek the west. The romantic tales of untold riches -the wondrous land of Cathay enticed all nations and the rush after wealth and adven- ture gave us our first knowledge of geography. Sir Walter Raleigh engaged to pay his men not in coin, but in solid bars of gold, and Ri- boa, on...

Sin,-With regard to the restrictions placed upon London Pawnhrokers.which are mentioned in your articles of last week's issue», it is us well the pub- lic mind may not he wholly turned inveterately against the Tasmanian trade.
