GENERAL INTELLIGENCE. COLOHUL LlOISIATUMi AND LEGIST. * TOItS -Wu fear tbr.t it must bo honestly g nfesacd tliat the character of our Legislative Assemblies, is not such as to invite gentlemen to quit their retirement to join them. Many a man who » auld be « illing to servo his country, does not sec ii to be his duty to spsnd three-fourths of the year in wrangling and jangling, in personal disputes and party intrigues, from which he could hardly keep himself clear, if he onco en- tered the Legislature. The British Houso of Commons bears tho reputation of being the " first assembly of gentlemen" in the realm, and as such, a sent in it is craved us n distinction.

THE MERCURY [published DAX MT.] WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 20,1858. TiiB Parliament made short work of it last night. Honorablo members of the House of Assembly, or,at least, those of t'lem who considered the business of the country of sufficient importance to induce them to attend, made a polite bow to the Si'kakeb ; shook hands Tory cordially with one another : made («'desperate effort to settle down to busi- ness ; failed most miserably in tho attempt ; and, agreed, without dissent, ti eschew business, and take another week's, holiday. There were but fifteen members pre- sent at the time the PitEiiuäU moved Íiiu'House into Committeo on the Mas- ters' and Servants' Act ; and, even those xce'medunmistakcably disinclined to settle down to business. Mr. Chaphan em- ployed almost superhuman exertions to overcome the inertness, by moving an amendment on the second clause of the BUI.

SELLING DEAD CATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 20 January 1858

SELLING DEAD CATTLE. At the meeting of the Municipal Coun- cil on Monday, a most startling an- nouncement was made by Mr. Alderman MuBDoeir, and echoed by Mr. Alder- man Lipscombe. It referred to the practite of disposing of dead cattle to the Butchers. Wo quote from our Reporter's notes : "Alderman Murdochdrewtheattention of the Council to the sale of dead cattle and sheep, es " Mary Ann." He could prove that I dead beast, and 3 dead sheep, had been skinned at the Govern- ment Slaughter-house, under the eye ol the Inspector of Stock, mid sold to the butchers. He cjuld name the butchers, but he would not at present. If the Council would not take cognizance ol' tho matter, ho would' bring it before the House of Assembly." "Alderman Lipscombe described the Slaughter-house as being in a most dis- graceful state." "Alderman Rheuben thought the at. teution of the Government should be called to the subject." We can have no right to doubt, for one moment, the accuracy of the above statemen...

TASMANIAN COAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 20 January 1858

TASMANIAN COAL. SCARCELY a month elapses in which it   does not become our pleasing duty to   chronicle some new discovery of mineral. wealth in Tasmania. It was not long   ago that we prominently adverted to the splendid seam of coal discovered on the   property of Mr. Steiglitz at Fingal; a   seam, which, in extent and quality, was far superior to any which had been   before that time found in the Colony. We   have now to announce the discovery of   another seam of coal, surpassing, in its   bituminous properties, the coal procured, at Fingal. We have ourselves tested the value of this new article in the getting up of steam for the purpose of   printing this journal, and on the authority of our Engineer, we have no hesitation in stating that, for the purpose to   which we applied it, it is very much   superior to any hitherto consumed at this establishm...

ORANGEISM. (From the Times.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 20 January 1858

O Tv A N G E I S M. (From tlie Times!) A manifesto Las been issued by the Central Orango Lodge in answer to the Lord Chancellor of Ireland. It was, indeed, to be expected that the Asso- ciation would die hard. If there be a being on earth of whom tho quality of " gameness" may be justly predicated, it ia the Orangeman. Pugnacity in the face of superior numbera forms the very essence of his character. Ho is the descendant of a victorious race, the pro- pagator of a spreading language, the partisan of a prosclytiziug religion. His father and grandfather before him were accustomed to think of themselves as a real Church militant, as the salt of the earth, as the lew who, in the midst of the idolatf rs, would not bow tho knee Uf Baal. The present representatives ef thone who slammed the gates of Derry *nd charged across tlie Bo;ne have not indeed achieved any deeds of heroism, but they are ardent admirers of former prowess. If they bad only beon their Own ancestors, what great things th...

í If D í A. (Frau the Times, Ubi. le.) Füll details of tile splendid achieve- ments at Delhi and Lucknow have nuw come to hand. If anything could raise our estimate of the valour, the skill, and the unflinching constancy to which the very fact of victory under such ad- verse circumstance« bore witness, it would be the narrative which we this day lay before our readers. Hjre will be seen what w..s dared and suffered by the brave men to whom we owe deliver- ance from one of the greatest perils which have ever threatened the Empire. Here we can judge what may bo accom- plished by a small body of resolute mea when they have confidence in their com- manders and when that confidence is justified. The capture of Delhi and the relief of Lucknow are di eds of arras that may well serve as models to future commanders. Every detail ol' such ex- ploits is interesting, since it shows what ascendancy may be acquired by one race over another, and how the disproportion of numbers may bo balanced by ...
