VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 26 January 1858
VICTORIA. His Excellency's visit to the Gold Field-« is one continued triumph. Where ever Sir Henry Barkley shows himself he is welcomed with the- strou¿est de monbtrations of liis popularity. Every meal he partakes of is a bauquet, to which '"addresses" form the appropriate de.-sert. The Honorable Me.nbers of the Vic t man Parliament are growing tired of their protracted sittings. The "Argus" says :-The present session of the Legis- lative Assembly seeras destined to be distinguished by the numerous adjourn- ments consequent upon the non-atten- dance of lion M'-mbers, or, at any rate, by their want of punctuality. Yester da}r there were only 17 Members at 25 minutes to 5 o'clock, at which time the Speaker left the chair, and the Assembly was declared adjourned to this-day at & o'slock.
SUGGESTED INTER-OCEANIC CANAL ACROSS THE ISTHMUS OF PANAMA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 26 January 1858
SUGGESTED 1NTER-0CEANIC CANAL ACROSS THE ISTHMUS OP PANAMA. It is singular that, at a time when the Isthmusuf Panama is attracting so much attention, and exploring parties have been lost in il;eir endeavors to discover a practicable line for au inter-oceanic canal, no one should have as yet attempt- ed to cross the Isthmus at its narrowest point. Before ascending the A trato, and diving into the heart of the South American continent, and proposing to convey ships from thence by a tunnel, it would have been wise to examine that part of the neck of land which iiatiuc points to as affording the must probable solution of the difficulty. I heard, at Panama, accounts of a depression in the Cordelleras, at a point wheie the two seas approximate so closely to one ano- ther, that the natives are hi the habit of making a portage wiih their canoes from the waters Sowing intothcGulf of Mexico into those which lose themselves into the Pacific; and 1 was not sony in com- pany with a fellow-countr...

THE MERCURY [PUBLISHED DAILY.] TUESDAY, JANUARY 26, 1858 THE GENERAL HOSPITAL. The death of Robert Cuthbert, a press- &nbsp; man for some time in this Office, has been attended with circumstances which have recalled to our mind an intention we have had fo rsometime past of ad verting to a very serious evil in connexion with the General Hospital-we allude to the difficulty experienced in gaining admis sion for patients in cases of emergency. 'The absurdity of the regulations, in this respect, becomes apparent when we con sider that a prisoner of the Crown is admitted instanter ; whilst a free per- son is subjected to numerous vexatious delays,, arising from certain forms which have to be gone through, before he can be received. In the case of Cuthbert we know that he was refused admission into the Hospital by Dr. Brock until certain certificates were produced from a Magistrate of the precise nature of which we are not aware. Now, we can see no reason whatever why the authorit...
