THE GENERAL HOSPITAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 27 January 1858
THE GENERAL HOSPITAL. DR, BROCE bas called upon us, rela- tive to our remarks upou the absurd and ill-advised difficulties thrown in the way of admitting patients into the General Hospital. We are glad to find that our statements of fact are substantiated by Dr. Brock himself. Application wa* made fur the admission of Robert Cuthbert, and that admission was jrnjfuied upon a plea, which, we are convincer!, has never been equalled for its novelty. The dying man was refused admission^ , lneause-he had money ! This is i strange' reason, truly, for refusing . medical aid . yet this is the reason, and tüe &lt;c¿'v reason, assigned for declining to ¿¿Unit Cuthbert. Dr. BEOCK states to us, that there are private Hospitals for people who ¿un pay. Grant that there arJ ; and grunt, also, which, by ike ' way ii not the fact, that cCtóhbert had money and could pay, was ¿hat atiy reason why the mau should ; ruerish'for «'ant uf medical assistance ?

THE MERCURY [PUBLISHED DAUA".] WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 27, 1838. THE Government and tbe Corporation have boen playing a scientific game, in which, on Monday night, the Aldermen were check-mated. Wegive the Ministry credit for no small share of adroitness iii getting rid of what threatened to be u moat uncompromising difficulty. Putt- ing out of eight the legal question ni together, there can be no doubt that, li id the Aldermen chosen to be obstre. perous, and bad they dogmatically re- futed to go through tbat most interest- ing duty of " swearing in the Police," they'would have reduced the Govern- ment to the unpleasant necessity of disbanding tbo force, and of falling back upon a Mandama» to bring our civic representatives to reason. This would jure been an unpopular proceeding ;aud no one know this better than the J'aEMiEu. That the Government felt considerable Anxiety with regard to this matter may bo easily inferred by a perusal of Mr. HïNir's very concilatory letter in another colu...

MISCELLANEOUS. THE COMIKG COMET.-In reply to those correspondents wishing to know in which region of the heavens the ex- pected comet would most probably be lound, we have to inform them that its place will probably be comprised in the constellations Virgo, Libra, and Ophi Delius, if it should prove visible before the end ol' the present year.
