THE LAND SCHEME. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 2 January 1858

THE LAND SCHEME. t - ti Ms. W. R. Allisox has placed a notice on the business paper, to corns on for discussion after the Recess, embodying a new idea relative to the alienation of [our Waste Lands. It is as follows: '' That the lands be leased for 14 years certain, in lots from 1000 to 10,030 acres, at £1 per 1000 acres, the , Lessee to have the rjtrht of selerj--^ tioninouolotja&rftioratc of-lao" ? acres for each 1000 aeread t ten shillings per acre, with eight ye ira' credit in equal instalments." We feel reluctant to discuss any new feature with regard to the lands at pre- sent. The unenviable and precarious position of the Land Bill is quite suffi- cient to dishearten any oue-however strong and impetuous his patriotism may be-from contemplating a subject so rife of dreary forebodings. Tt seems jj) almost absurd, to discuss' any new feature *&» a schema, of the ultioiato; exiiteaoe the gravest and most serious doubts. There is no man in the Colony to whom we shou...

THE MUTINY IN INDIA. (From the 'Times.') [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 2 January 1858

THE MUTINY IN INDIA. (Fromthe 'Times.') What is happening to us in India cannot be represented by any of the ordinary types of misfortune. Earth quake, disease, - mutilation, and such natural images are employed to describe confusion, »gony, prostration, and diffi- culty. Bit they suppose only a partial loss, or digree of suffering. In this in- stance th« very thing that constituted our streMh and our substantial exist- ence is mt merely injured and weakened, nor ions it merely disappear; it is turn« against us ; it has become our deady foe and our imminent peril. We behylndia as a great military power, and as «military power we may be said at th» moment to have ceased-worse than ceped, inasmuch as our own power is tlit against which we have to contend frf existence. ! A disembodied army we low by our home experience may be a ¡ry harmless thing.

THE MERCURY [PUBLISHED DAILY.] SATURDAY, JANUARY 2ND, 1858. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 2 January 1858

THE MERCURY [PUBLISHED DAIXY.] SATURDAY, JANUARY 2nd, 1858. An Opposition, constitutionally organ- ised, has long been lecognised nofc only as a legi'imate, but, as a necessary fea- ture in all Responsible Governments. A Ministry reigning supreme and unop- posed in Parliament, is, to all intents and purposes, an irresponsible Ministry. Without an Opposition, there can be no such thing as Responsible Government in reality, whatever there may bo in name. If the Ministerial benches are appropriately termed the right arm of a Government, the Opposition bouches may be tormed, with equal propriety, its left. The one is as much an indis- pensable and a necessary portion of the Constitution as the other ; nor eau that Constitution exist in its integrity if deprived of either. But, what are we to understand by an Opposition? In what way should it be organised ? What should be its office ? There is a great deal of misunderstanding abroad upon this question ; and we do not think it will be ami...

GENERAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 2 January 1858

GENERAL INTELLIGENCE. Cabbage Blight.-A great many persons have been in the habit, we are in- formed, of feeding pics and cows upon cabbages destroyed by the blight. We have been requested, by one who has suffered from turning those animals loose amongst cabbages thus smitten, to caution all parties against feeding pigs and cows, or allowing them to be fed, upon them for the future. Several pigs have died in consequence; and the cows have been dangerously ill with disease-so ill indeed, that their recovery has been only effected by the greates care This is highly important; and we hoe this caution will be widely circulated.
