THEATRE ROYAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 14 January 1858

THEATRE ROYAL. We beg to remind our realera, that Donizetti's magnificent Opera, in four acts, entitled Lucia di Lammermoor, will be produced this evening, for the 11 benefit of Mons. Laglaise. M. Kohler will perform on the Concertina and Rock Harmonicon, in his wonderfully brilliant style, and the " Bath Road" will close the entertainment. We do not believe, i that it is at all necessary for us to solicit j a full house on behalf of M. Laglaise. The short time these talented artistes I have been here, has been a-nple to estab- lish their reputation-as the full atteu- ] dance at the Theatre Royal abundantly testifies. Besides thiswork of Donizetti's ) is so famous, and so deservedly popular, that few we should think would care to I miss the opportunity of witnessing it, more especially f when its principal cha- racters, are to be sustained hy such ster- ling talent. We know that those only I will bo absent, who are ignorant, that so great a treat is available.

THE LORD MAYOR'S BANQUET. LORD PALMERSTON ON INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 14 January 1858

THE LORD MAYOR'S BANQUET. IiOBD PAIKEBSTOS OK I5DU. - The Guildhall was well fitted up on Monday, the 9th November, on the oc- casion of the Lord Mayor's banquet warlike preparations predominating. The loving cup having been passed round, the usual toasts were drunk. In reply to that of "The Army, and Navy," with which his name was coupled, Lord Panmure said, in reference to the Army, that it now attracted public attention, not alone for its exploits in the field for they never were questioned-but on account of the anxiety which exists in this country, to foster a force, and to en- courage a profe-siou of which England may-well be proud, and from which, upon all occasions, it will obtain the most prompt and valuable assistance. He (Lord Panmure) was proud to think,that under the system of voluntary service the ranks of the army, thinned as they were at home by the drafts which we have sent abroad, are every week being rapidly recruited, and that the fueling which induces the men of ...

THE MERCURY [PUBLISHED DAILY.] THURSDAY, JANUARY 14, 1858[?] [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 14 January 1858

THE MERCURY [rüBLlalIED DULY.] THURSDAY, JANUARY 14,1838 We hare long been of opinion that our Vagrancy Law* require amcndmotit. There i« something exceedingly repellent in constituting poverty a crime. Did the affliction» of heaven fall upon those only whose past lives had been »pent in guilt and debauchery ; if the skeleton -fingen of want pinched those only who had wasted their health and substance in riotous living, or in worse ; if pros- perity were invariably the handmaid of moral worth and industry ; then, indeed, might we look upon poverty as the issue of guilt-as the inflexible emination of a reprobate mind. But such is no1 the case. The heavy hand of affliction is, at times, laid upon the helpless, the aged, and the feeble,-upon the good a» well u upon tho evil ; nor should they, in the hour of calamity and distress-when thrown by unmerited misfortune, or by disease, upon the pity and the charity of their neighbours, be subjected to the .shame and degradation inseparable f...
