CARRICK RACES. Tins is the season for races, one quickly tread- ing on the heels of the other. Last week the Carrick Meet caine off, and although the at- tendance was not numerous, the racing was by no means bad, and fair praise, \vu think, is due to the Stewards, nine iu number,for, their exertions and arrangements.

VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 11 March 1857

VICTORIA. We have received, by way of Launceston, Melbourne journals to the 7th instant-as might have been anticipated, Mr. O'shanassy had been "sent for," and had undertaken the formation of a new Ministry, but up to our latest intelligence nothing definitive bud beou arrived at. The Argita of the 7th in speak- ing on the bubject says." The quidnuncs were busy all yesterday in circulating lists i-f imaginary Cabinets. It may be confidently affirmed, however, that at five o'clock last evening no Ministry had been formed, nor should we advise our read- ers to place implicit faith in any list of Mr. O'SLmuussy's colleagues which they may find in print this morning. Some difficulty, we believe, has been expe- rienced in filling up the places of the two law officers. According to what seems to have become almost n standing custom where any change has to be made in this department, the Attorney-Generalship was offered to Mr Micl.id and was declined by him. AVe believe that he was at firs...

GREEN PONDS AND BRIGHTON. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 11 March 1857

GREEN P0ND3 AND BRIGHTON. The weather continues fair, and the harvest which is not here abundant, has been com- pleted. A clack meet is expected at the Races, and some first rate entries have been made, particularly in the St. Leger, and All Age Stakes: tho Subscription List is well filled, and tho course is in good older. Upon enquiry, we learn, that the Stewards of ,the forthcoming races, anxious to meet the, wishes of the racing gentry of the Noithern Side, on the'r way to New Town,fixed the days as they at present stand, not knowing that the Ham- ilton Races were also fixed lot* the 2nd and 3rd of April : it is therefore to be hoped, that tho Stewards of the Hamilton Races will alter their úa¡ t-, to meet the wishes of the residents ol both districts. Mr. I). C.

GOOD MISTRESSES MAKE GOOD SERVANTS. (From the London "Daily News.") [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 11 March 1857

GOOD MISTRESSES MA.KE GOOD SERVANTS. (Prora the London "Daily News.") How is it, that it is now so difficult to meet with good servants, good needlewomen, good cottage economists ? We doubt whether the deterioration is quite so universal as the Atheimum letter takes for granted. In Nor lolk, it may be, there was a race of olean ser- vants half a century ago, who have left few successors there ; but how was it at that time with Devonshire, with Northumberland, with Westmoreland ? Such cleanliness) as Norfolk required, was a thing never conceived ol' in tho other counties mentioned. Let those bear witness who knew Devonshire cottages and Devonshire kitchens. As for the North, wo men were masons' labourers at Newcastle in those days'.- Without looking down into the coal-pits, and at the miserable creatures who then crawled about there ; the dwellings and persons of the pit-people would have amazed the Norfolk " workies" with their mixture of opulence and dirt : the eight-day clock, the...

COLONIAL EXCLUSIVENESS. (From the Morning Chronicle.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 11 March 1857

COLONIAL EXCLUSIVENESS. (HWi the Morning Chronicle.) ' Our Colonies are becoming decidedly ex- clusive. But a short time has elapsed since they unanimously opposed the further'admis- sion of convicts, by whose labour they hud grown to greatness, and whose presence, if duly regulated, would still have been of ines- timable advantage in new countries where so much work 01 the roughest kind was to be done, and so'few hands for the task. In that case however, plausible, though, in our opin- ion, fallacious, arguments could be advanced in justification. But what can be said in fa- vour of the Act recently passed by the Legis- lative Council of Victoria, by which a capi- tation tax of £10 has been laid on every Chi- nese landed in the colony, and by which ships engaged in bringing them to Port Phillip are only allowed one passenger of that race to every ten tons register I Theae rules have been partly evaded by landing iramigrant from the Celestial Empire at Adelaide.whence they have a te...

SPIRIT OF THE PRESS. WAE WITH PBESIA., (From the Times, December 2.) It's always as well to bo " posted np" with events, and even prepared for them with some knowledge of places and persons. "When anything very startling comes to pass no one likes to be going about asking privately and confidentially, " Who's he ? Where's this ? What's that ?" So a word to all who ore concerned in theeducation of children. Open the map ol' Asia ; it is Asia,-that much is known with certainty,-and point out Herat. If you cauuot find it, consult the index. Make your children learn the position of Herat £at least, its whereabouts within a few hundred miles. We ure sorry to say that, in the present state of geographical kuowled-je iu this country, yon will not be able to learn whether Herat is in-Persia or Afghanistan, but of that hereafter. It is important, how- ever, that you should familiarize your children with the name, for perhaps ten or tweuty ,years heneo they will see the place, or per- haps th...

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. ATTEMPTED ESCAPE.-One of the prison- ers named Jones, sentenced on Monday to 12 months imprisonment for absconding, succeeded prior to his being brought before the Magistrate in effecting his escape by leaping through one of the windows in the Court. He had tasted for some time previous the sweets of unlawful freedom, and the fresh morning air   as it blew into the open casement of the Police Office   was irresistable. Like his great prototype Jack Shep- hard he was resolved upon escaping and did escape - for a few moments only. D. C. Vickers was not to be done so easily ; and Jones was retaken before he had reached St. Mary's Hospital.       POLICE ROSTER.-The Magistrate whose duty it is to attend at the Police Office this morning is W.
