LATEST EUROPEAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 27 February 1857

LATEST EUROPEAN. The Aristocracy.-Loyalty is in the English a sub-religion. They wear the laws as ornaments, and walk by their faith in their painted May-fair, as if among the forms of gods. The economist of 1855 who asks, Of what use are the lords ? may learn of Frank- lin to ask, Of what use is a baby ? They have been a social church proper to inspire sentiments mutually honouring the lover and the loved. Politeness is the ritual of society as prayers are of the church ; a school of manners, and a gentle blessing to the age in which it grew. It is a romance adorning English life with a larger horizon, a midway heaven, fulfilling to their sense their fairy tales and poetry. This, just as far as the breeding of the nobleman, really made him brave, handsome accomplished, and great hearted.-Knight's Popular History of Eng land. Explosion of a Lady-M. Bragelone tells a story of a young English lady who had just arrived in Paris, and who had the pre- tension to believe that she knew how...

Hepresentatioiis have been repeatedly made as to the necessity of the erection of a hut for the C'n-tables, but no money has been voted for the purpose by the Council, and it is the intention of the Police Magistrate to withdraw the Policemen from the Station until some means ol' lodging them can bo provided.

The representation on Friday night of the Iitidy of Lyons, one of the most felicitous dra- matic productions of its talented author, was, without exception, the most successful which we have witnessed for sometime past, and tim style and manner in which it «as put upon the stage, wa< equally unexceptional.
