THE AMERICAN FlLLIBUSTER. (From the Times.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 23 February 1857

THE AMERICAN FlLLIBUSTER. (From the Times.) The American Fillibuster is fast taking a definite and recognised place in the order of I wild heroes. Robin Hood, the Italian bravo, the Highland cateran, and the moss trooper have had their day. The class of cavalier robbers who used to stop carriages with the courtesy of finished aristocrats lias died out. Piracy ia all bat obsoh t ..

THE DANGERS OF THE ATLANTIC. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 23 February 1857

THE DANGERS OF THE ATLANTIC. The loss of tho Lo Lyonnais (lays the Times) is a terrible commentary upon the perils of Atlantic navigation, Could three great dangers be eliminated from the run it would be, comparatively speaking, secure j hut two forms of peril aro ever present, and the third«-perhaps the greatest of nil, during a very considerable period of the year cannot he avoided by the caution or skill of niau. There is danger fruin collision with other vessels, and when the weather is thick, and throughout the fogs on the banks this attains ils maximum. There is the danger fiom fire,-Hut Iron!

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 23 February 1857

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. We have Adelaide papers to the lOfch hist. The Register states that the managers of the Adelaide banks have placed themselves in communication with the Government on the subject of quartz-crushiug, and have proposed to guarantee the cost of a machine, to be pro- cured from Melbourne,- for the purpose of testing the auriferous quality of South Aus- tralian quartz, both by mechanical and% chem- ical processes. The thing, therefore, to use a familiar phrase, " is aá good as done ;" and a few weeks, observes the Register, will suffice to determine whether we are to add gold to the goodly list of our native products. We may not be able to rival our sister Victoria by exporting in one year an amount equal in val- ue to the xvhole capital of the Bank of En- gland ; but wo shall be content if gold takes an equal place with our copper, our xvool, and our wheat.

PLEA FOR AN UNLEARNED PEOPLE. From the Spectator. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 23 February 1857

PLEA FOR AN UNLEARNED PEOPLE. From the Spectator. " I hate Lord Stanley, he is so . tional ! " exelaimsd a man blase in the world of public speaking. That was an ungracious expression : but, it must be confessed, that Lord Stanley, having devoted himself to little boys and mechanics' institutes with most laud- able zeal, has contracted the malady of en- thusiasm in didactics ; and he eau now seldom rise in a public place without telling the num- ber of little boys who can " read aud write imperfectly," or the proportion of volumes in the different institutions of Manchester, Sal- ford, and Warrington, with the objects, plea- sures, and advantages of science. Lord Stan- ley wishes to hit upon that course which would be possible for a labourer, who toils long hours in the day, and has only the leisure of an evening to snatch. Such a mau, he says, cannot become either an astronomer, a geologist, a chemist, or a physiologist ; but, even the greatest philosophers have pursued studies in ...

THE MERCURY. yuulíslieb íHoirtmn;, OTcímcsim fctfrfOaa MONDAY MORNING. FEBRUARY 23, 1857. In the lack of other topics of consolation the apologists of the late Ministry fall back upon the political changea which marked the advent of constitutional Go- vernment in New South Wales, and in- fer that as the Donaldson administration was thrown out by a factious opposition, succeeded by that of a minority, and finally reinstated as it were under another head-himself an old official-so our changes must ultimately land us on the old strand of office and routine. They however forget that there is no real analogy between the cases. The Donaldson Ministry did not go out upon any vital question. Their general policy was never really discussed. They retired because from the course of a few divisions on minor topics, they felt they were not strong enough to com- mand a majority as a matter of course upon any subject which they chose to make a Ministerial one, altho' generally the sense of the Ass...

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 23 February 1857

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. "Kites is ix !" Wo have been requested to call the attention of tho police authorities to the in- tolerable nuisanco, and, in many coses, imminent dan- ger, caused by a swann of young urchins who arc from morning till night flying kites in tho public streets. There is a clause in the police act which restrains these juveniles-in their indulgence in this- pastime. The erratic and spasmodic efforts of the kite to raise itself suniefunes astonishes the unwary by flying into his breast or encircling his neck or legs. Sometimes a lady and gentleman are tied together with a "true love knot," by the sportive movements of this "army' of kites." But to horsemen the matter is more serious. We havehe.ird ol'one or two cases where spirited horses have been startled by a slap in tho face from th esc same playful kites-thereby endangering the lives of the riders. If you remonstrate with the young urchins thoy tell you "We cunt help it-Kites is in!" The Coxdxmxkd Chijiixal Jebe...

MR. ALLISON. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 23 February 1857

MB. ALLISON. Mr. Allison has cuiled upon us to correct two errors with respect to himself-one in leader a few days since, another in a report oí the proceedings ¡u the Assembly ou Thursday last. .'.. . i p. J" . V. The first is in référença to our »¡nark that the honorable member might and ought to have pressed his motion for a six mouths vote, when the estimates were first brought in. He says th.it he proposed a four months vote, and that Mr. Ix>*es has the merit, such »3 it is, ol the longer period. It is of little consequence, this difference of two mouths; the question really is, whether the time ive specify was not the best for a restrictive vote of the kind, whether for four months or six ? Mr. Allison will not now venture to say it was not. As to the report, our Escorter has it that Mt. Allison said "oh! oh!!" to the late Colonial Secretary's observations ou the gup posed breaeh of faith involved in tits résolution on the salaries of t!u high oíliuta mj.ition.'d in it. Mr....

Miscellaneous Shipping The City of Hobart steamer left the wharf at half past six o'clock on Saturday evening. The steam ship Great Britain is undergoing further alterations of an important character at Liverpool.

LOUIS NAPOLEON FORTIFIES HIMSELF. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 25 February 1857

LOUIS NAPOLEON FORTIFIES HIMSELF. The emperor* or any other man (says the Daily Ifews), may, like his predecessor Louis Philippe, lose his croiru. But, under ex- isting circumstances, there can bo no doubt that Napoleon would enjoy many advantages in the way of defending himself over that wily monarch. Let us shortly consider the matter. In the first place, we may observe that in any general insurrection of the workpeople ,of Paris the existing government has to con- tend with a mass of some 140,000 or 150, 000 men, « ho, in a few hours, more or less completely organise themselves. For we know that every one of them understands the use of arms, and most of them have been soldiers. Besides, there is a science of street fighting which is constantly studied by Fren- chmen, and has been more than once suc- cessfully practised. So that there is in fact a sort of prestige of success attached to it. The defects under which the insurgent force labours, of course depend on its being incom- p...

THECOMINGCOMMMERCIAL STORM IN EUROPE. (From the Spectator.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 25 February 1857

THECOMINGCOMMMERCIAL STORM IN EUROPE. (From the Spectator.) The greatest danger to be apprehended from the impending financial pressure does not He in the magnitude of the liabilities that will be suddenly brought to thn't^st of reality, vast as that nill be. We can only form an imperfect idea of the scale oft be account that will have to be balanced in a few months or weeks.with such a deplorable shortness of cash to liqui- date the balance. In a general way, we can see it from the continually rising price of money. London is following the example of Amsterdam and Hamburg ; and in Turin where our old standard of " legal " interest has been retained at 5 per cent., the Govern- ment is compelled to thruw the trade open, or to see capital leaving a country in which it is peremptorily needed for improvement. France has been buying gold at any price, in order to dress the returns of the bank for the monthly parade, and to conceal the real state of the deficit in France. But we find that...
