LATEST FROM CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 16 January 1858

LATEST PßOM CHINA. We ore in receipt of Houg Kong journals to the 28th November ; they contain 43 days later news. The past fortnight has been character- ised by little hut repeated rumours, each one affecting greater a .-curacy than another, as to when active operations were really to commence. The flag-ship Calcutta, with a number of the steamers and gun-boats, left for the Hirer on tlio 17th and 18th, but beyond this, we be- hove, no further step has been actually taken, and the capture of Canton is still in perspective. The Admiral is said to be desirous ? for the presence of Colonel Holloway, who is appointed to the im- mediate command of the marines, and who, with the remainder of that body, is expected in the Adelaide, whose long passage is now «resting some anxiety. At all erents the force at present here is very large, and probably rauch better able to take Canton than General Wil- son'« was to take Delhi. There hare been no additions to the fleet since our last Overland is...

To the Editor of the Daily Mercury. Hobart Town, January 1[?]th, 1858. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 16 January 1858

To the Editor of the Daily Mercury. Hobart Town, January 15th, 1858. Sir,-In the Mercury of this morning, it is stated in reference to the " Fracas" beween Messrs. Gregson and W. V. Smith, that the former gentleman entered the billiard room at the Club Hotel, and shortly after, " Mr. Smith was in the set of striking the ball, Mr. Gregson sa¡d, ' Don't play at that ball, Sir, turn your cue the other way,' at the same time using language unfit for publication." We, the undersigned, who were present on the occasion referred to, must contradict that part of the statement accusing Mr Gregson "of using language unfit for publication," as, beyond the expression, " Stop, don't play at that ball-take the other end of your cue," not a word was said by Mr. Gregson, who struck the first blow, and further that the ejaculation - Ah !- as Mr. Gregson received and warded off the terrific blows aimed at him by Mr. Smith, with the butt end of the cue, not a sentence uttered, until the parties having ...

YESTERDAY'S MAIiKláTd. TUEBE has been some animation in the grain market during the day, and wheat has met with considerable cnquiiy and increases in demand. Prices have fur- ther advanced on account of its scarcity in'the market, holders keeping back their goods in hopes of higher quotations; sales were effected yestei day at 7s. to 7s. 61. the best samples, being au advance of 6d. per bushel. Colonial oats arc quoted at (is. to 7s. according to the sample, but as yet they are rarely seen. Hay is not quite so high us recently, but prices are firm at £G to £S per ton according to the quality; supplies are now coming in moro freely than last week. It is very difficult to meet w.th good potatoes' just nt present, those now in the market being more or less affected with the grub, but the chango of weather will no doubt act beneficially and put an end to further complaints. Tile quotations have not altered from £7 to £10 per ton according to the sample. More activity is visible in the f...

A more vacant piece of special pleading it has never been our misfortune to peruse ; and SIE HEXHY YOU>'Ü must entertain but a very uncomplimentary opinion of the mental discernment of the good people of Hobart Town, if he supposes for a moment, that they are likely to be de- ceived by so transparent an evasion of an earnest, just, simpje, and straight- forward request.

THE ROMANCE OF CREDIT. (From the Leader.) HOW M. MIRES, CHIEF DIRECTOR OF THE   CAISSE GENERALE DES CHEMINS DE FER, TENDERED HIS RESIGNATION, AND HOW IT WAS NOT ACCEPTD. In Paris thay are preparing for n further- dqwnfal of the spurious com- merce that has been grafted on the newly-developed high commerce of France. Last week we saw the Société de Credit Mobilier recalling its truant directors, andj forbidding thorn to'retire ; and notwithstanding his ' notarial act,' M. Andre has been denied a retreat from his responsibilities. How often it happens that men plunge into positions from which they oanuot draw back ! The recruit hears splendid accounts of adventure in the Eastern seas ; lie joins a free roving ship ;'he does procuro pis- tols, daggers, earrings, nnd other trin- kets, but finds a good allowance of blows nnd no small risk to life, and he wishes to retreat. No such thing ; desertion is not allowed. The captain, indeed, may resign his post ; but the threat to ...

CASTE IN INDIA AND ITS EFFECTS ON INDIAN CIVILISATION. (From the Eoconomist.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 19 January 1858

CASTE IN INDIA AND ITS EFFECTS ON INDIAN CIVILI- SATION. _(From the Eoonomiit.) Insufficient as the causes ol'the revolt at first sight appear to be, the seeming insufficiency vanishes directly we con- sider the great battle that has really been going on for the last century, between the forces of English and Indian civilisation. Indian civilisation has grown up into a mighty structure of absolutely arbitrary usages. Caste itself -at first no doubt taking its rise in the natural affinities of kindred and nation- ality-had been hedged in and defended by a multitude of the most absurd and superstitious usages which, unfortu- nately for the Hindoos, were burdens that not only their fathers and they had been quite able'to bear, but most anxious to parade, to foster, and to increase. Instead of rising up in indignant revolt against the network of fretting obs.T vancos, which thp lap-o qf time gradually introduced into the usages of caste, the Hindoo mind abjectly accepted and sanc- tifie...

THE NECESSITY FOB AN UN- BROKEN I'ELhiGRAPHIC LINE BETWEEN ENGLAND AND INDIA. (Prom th.- Timet.) What is the subject upon which at th s m ment the great! st interest is felt by the population of these islands? What wish with reference to public af- fairs has been most univei sally expressed (¡luring the last two months? These questions can be answered without a minute's hesitation. If there is one ar- dent and absorbing desire pervading the whole nation just now, it is the desire to know what is passing in I tilia, - tu know it from day to day, without uncertainty iu the .steilijeuce or suspense in the communi- cation,-to feel that we are omitting no exertions through ignorance and losing no opportunities through delay. Nitr does the occasion, momentous as it is, appeal to public spirit only. Private alfections are extensively involved in ti ? matter, and the fate of our countrymeiv for whose safety praycrsaicputiipinour churches, furnishes a subject of unceas- ing anxiety to thousa...
