SPIRIT OF THE PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 25 February 1857

SPIRIT OF THE PRESS. In selecting the "Spirit of the Press," weare guided solely by a wish to place before our readers the opin- ions of all parties without any regard to the relation, such opinions may sustain to thosa of this journal. SELF-GOVERNMENT IN THE COLO- NIES. (From the Times.) Among the great achievements of our century we are fond of recording that of colo- nisation. During the 20 yean which elap- sed between the passing of the Reform Bill and the late war, while the continental nations were occupied iu sowinfj or repressing revo- lutions, we were planting settlements in the forests of North American and the extreme south of Australasia. Nor were the labours of our emigrants bounded by the clearance of primeval forests, the tillage of virgin lands or the discovery of uuimagined miues. Another, and, it may be, a more difficult task has been devolved upon them-that of self government This is no new experiment in theory, for the earlier settlers of Massachu- setts and othe...

COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE. VICTORIA. (From the Melbourne Journal of Commerce.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 25 February 1857

COMMEECIAL INTELLIGENCE. VICTORIA. (From the Melbourne Journal of Commerce.) Business has been inanimate during the week, and sales of any moment difficult to effect, although there seems more disposition to by in stock for up-country. To some extent the races have interfered with trade, mid we expect that a good many country buyers who ure in town will give some impetus to business next week. The heavy shipments of Flour from Adelaide aro attracting addition, and being much in excess of our requirements prices will probably fall. In Horse Feed the trade has been very active during the » eck, and Oats, Maize, and Bran have been quitted in large quantities at enhanced rates. In the Wino and Spirit trade there have been some failures, but of parties who were known to possess no capital, mid their ttoppago has created no surprise. FlOült A>*D GitAtN.-Tliero is not much doing in tho Flour market, and us luge quantifies are arriving from Adelaide, whilst holders of foreign Flour uro b...

THEATRE ROYAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 25 February 1857

THE VÏRE ROYAL. On Munday evening, Victorino was repeated, and better performed in all rcspeet-i, than on its previous representation, the actors, both male and f. mule, being more perfect in their parts. The farce of the Middy Ashore, which concluded the entertainments, was ex- ceedingly well acted, exciting roars of laughter from the beginning to tho enrl, allbrding scarcoly time for applause, which was nevertheless, very libera Hy bo stowed. Miss Rosa Dunn's " Middy," was au admi- rable performance, replete with talont,point, and great smartness. . Last evening the Love Chase, and Ladies Beware, were selected for the RenefitofMiss Joey Gougcnheim.

Mr. Brewer, who was at the Erank lin, was attending a meeting ol' his friends and supporters previous to the nomination, when tlie intelligence reached there of the re- signation ol' the Ministry.

COUNTRY DISTRICTS. K I C H M 0 N D. (From our own Correspondent.) The weather, here, has been fine, with oc- casional slight showers on Saturday last ¡ the crops, I regret to say, will not be an average one, arising principally from much rain at seed time succeeded by continued drought. Their is a great scarcity of labour throughout the District, and the lowest price for reaping is Ms the acre. A gloom has been cast over the Township, and the greatest portion of the District bj' the lamented death of Mr. John Birchall junior, whose remains were followed to the grave on Monday, by a large concourse of mourners, amongst whom were many of the mo*fc respectable settlers and residents in the District. The school, under the board of ed- ucation, is well attended by a daily average of fifty scholars, which will be increased after the harvest, as many of the older boys arc assist- ing in the field. The school-house however, is in a very dilapidated condition,being almost untenantable ; it c...

AN OLD HAND'S YARN. [The following very extraordinary narrative, or rather, confession, is copied from Bell's Life in Victoria, and we give it a place in our columns at the particular request of several respectable residents in the locality, to which the events recorded refer.] Ballining, Jan. 17th, 1857. Some years ago, shortly after night-fall, the cook from the men's hut came into the sitting room and told me that a traveller had come to the men's hut and got leave to stop all night ; that he appeared very' ill and likely to die, and wanted to see the master, The even- ing was not a very pleasant one, and the com- forts of the warm sitting-room I had just left were very strongly brought before my mind as I followed my conductor across the paddock. As I entered the hut, I saw the man who had sent for me, sitting before the fire. The agony he was suffering, combined with the effects of a long career of crime, had made his face wear an expression almost demoniacal, and I shud- dered...

CHINA. ORIGIN OF THE RECENT HOSTILITIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 25 February 1857

CHINA. ORIGIN OF THE BECEÎÎT HOSTILITIES. We have intelligence from China down to the 4th of December, at which date we are in- formed that hostilities had been suspended on all sides and that Canton and Hong Kong were in the enjoyment of at least a temporary tranquifity. The following somewhat curious correspon- dence between Sir John Bowriug, the British Plenipotentiary at Hong Kong, and Yen, the Chinese Governor, has been published in the Hong Kong Official Gazette. The first docu ineut is a letter, in which the British Official seeks to justify his resort to hostilities. Here are the principal passages : The lorella Arrow, a vessel duly registered as above, having come up to Canton in the earlier part of October, information it appears, was given to the authorities by a person who had been robbed by pirates at sea, that one of the delinquents was serving as a sailor in the lorcha.

WOMEN'S RIGHTS CONVENTION [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 25 February 1857

WOMEN'S RIGHTS CONVENTION The "Women's Rights convention," assem- bled at New York, with Miss Lucy Stone as president, has adopted the following resolu- tions :- "That the close of a presidential election af- fords a peculiarly appropriate occasion to re- new the demands of women for a consistent application of democratic principles. "2. That the republican party, appealing constantly through its orators to female sym- pathies and using for its most popular rallying cries a female name, is peculiarly pledged by consistency to do justice hereafter in those states where it holds control. "3. That the democratic party must be ut- terly false to its name and its professed prin- ciples or else must extend their application to both halves of the human race. " 4. That the present uncertain and inconsis- tent position of women in our community, not fully recognised either as a slave or as an equal, taxed but not represented, authorised to earn property, but not free to control it, permitted...

COUNSEL AND CLIENT.—STRANGE CASE. From the London Daily News. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 25 February 1857

COUNSEL AND CLIENT.-STRANGE CASH. From the London Daily News. The icport of proceedings in the case of " Swynfen v. Swynfen " must, we think, a little astonish our readers by the admitted facts of the case. Take the case on the ad- missions contained in the affidavits of Sir Frederic Theaiger» and how very remarka- ble a state of relations between counsel and client does it disclose. The story is not a long one. Mrs. Swynfen, under her father in-law's will, was the devisee of estates worth 65,0002. Captain Swynfen,, the heir-at-law, contested the will, on the ground ofthe testa- tor not being of sufficient capacity to make it. The ense went down to Stafford for trial, Sir Frederic Thesiger being specially retained as the leading counsel for Mrs. Swynfen, and Sir Alexander Cockburn, then attorney general and now chief justice, acting in a like capacity for the heir-at-law. The inves- tigation threatened to be long and complica- ted. One whole day had been consumed without getting thr...

THËMERCUUY. ISubliöIirt íHotíban, EStïmesiag Ä iFtíbaj WEDNESDAY MORNING. FEBRUARY 25,1357. The affairs of the country are now really at a stand still, and until to-morrow will remain so. Probability points to their continuing in an uncertain condition for some time longer, and the effect cannot but be at least temporarily injurious to the best interests of the colony. In the meantime let us look at the question which just now is of paramount impor- tance-that of a dissolution. We are not about to examine this with reference to the bearing it may exert upon the platts of the ministry that is out, or the ministry that may be in. We view it upon entirely independent prin- ciples, recoguising no tie to any party and determined to preserve that impartial freedom from any personal connection which has distinguished this journal throughout the late political controversies. When the Champ-Chapman ministry was formed we found ourselves supporting them-When they resigned we were amongst thei...
