LAST NIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 4 February 1857

LAST, NIGHP. Madame Anna Bishop gains-like everyone possess- ing roal genius-upon tho hearts of all'the more exten- ded the acquaintance becomes. That one so distin- guished should be enabled to command universal ap- plause as a right, and not as a favour, is nothing mars than what the world has tolerated and approved. But it is only lo ability of the lughe3t order that this sub mi-ion is paid. The reception of this distinguished Artiste in Tasmania-brilliant as it lias boen-has ad- ded little to her already far extended fame ; but it has established beyond a question the fucr,hcre,as elsewhere that the presence of true genius will always recieve that tribute to which it is entitled. In doing honor, there- fore, to tiloso who visit our shores and delight u> by their surpassing ability, w c, at the samo time, do honor to oumelves., We rejoice, therefore, for Tasmania sake, that Madame Anna Bishop has had a reception worthy of her unquestioned genius. What shall we say of her perfo...

THEATRE ROYAL. MONDAY [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 4 February 1857

THEATRE BOYAL. MONDAY The entire change of performances on Monday night, elicited still more favourably the invited talents and acquirements of our ïîew Company, who certainly im- prove greatly upon further acqiu intauce. The first piece of " AU that glitte« is not Gold," a petite Com-, cdy by Marston, is, one of those varieties, in which broad humour and sentiment are judiciously combined, and these, with several good " situations," as they aro technically termed, constitute an agreeable drama. Tho perfoi manee, making every allowance on a first representation, for the rather too frequent requirements for tho Prompter, which, we must confess were very obi ions, was on the whole commendable. The Miss.-» Emily ({lyndon and Rosa Dunn fully maintained thoir position in our good opinion, nnd really,-displayed some very charminj acting, particularly in the last scene. Miss Glyndon's. vcrsitility was -exhibited to groat advantage, and Mibs Itosa Dunn even her best admirers by a visible im...

LIFE AMONG THE CANNIBALS OF NEW CALEDONIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 4 February 1857

LIFE AMONG THE CANNIBALS OF NEW CALEDONIA. Tho following interesting letter was addres- sed by a French gentleman in New Caledo- nia to one of the correspondents of the "Echo du Pacifique," from which journal it was trans- ferred to the "Messager de Tahiti," whence   we (" Empire") translate it for the benefit of our readers. Kanala, New Caledonia. March 1st, 1856. Mr. Dear Doctor,- I am now in the midst of the savages, and it is so rare to see a ship enter here, that I may consider myself as completely beyond the pale of civilization. As I told you in my letter of the 26th of No- vember last, I live at Kanala, one of the finest ports of the island, and situated in a district   which is one of the most fertile and most thickly peopled (with savages be it under- stood). I landed here on the 16th of Octo- ber, with an American who came from Tahiti where, he said, he had been American Consul. He was named John Riccord. The savages made so unfavourable an impre...

FELICE ORSINI ON THE ITALIANQUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 6 February 1857

1 FELICE ORSINI ON THE ITALIAN- t QUESTION. " \ On Thursday evening, 16 th Ootohsr, Felice Orsini, the Italian exile, whose extraordinary escape from the Austrian dungeon of S Gior- gio, Mantua, has rendered his name famous throughout the world, attended a meeting in the Music Hall, Leeds, and delivered an ad- dress " On the Austrians in Italy." The orator was greeted on rising with the most vehement applause. He commenced hy saying that the political state of Italy had caused the best yeai s of his life tobe passed either in duugeons or in exile, and prevented his applying himself to those studies whence proceeded eloquence and the art of public speaking. For that reason he craved the kind indulgence of his hearers for his faint utterances in giving them his experiences and knowledge of his beloved Italy, and of Aus- trian oppression there. (Hear,) hear. He begged them also to extend their favour to remem- bering how few months he had been in England, and how small had been his opp...

Should rumour prove true, the mode in which this retreat, upon correct principles, is to be managed will be another example of that curious infelicity which has characterised their proceedings throughout. A. house tax and a land tax are spoken of,-the house tax to be levied upon assessment of value; the land tax to be calculated upon acre- age, the rate being two pence per acre. The House tax we see no reason to object to. On the contrary we should have much satisfaction in finding the rumour correct, but the principle upon which the Land tax is to be levied is both wrong in its basis and unjust in its operation. It assumes what is obviously unt...

MADAME BISHOP'S CONCERT.—LAST NIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 6 February 1857

MADAME BISHOP'S COXCERT.-LAST NIGHT. Wo have already almost exhausted our critical vo- cabulary in praise of Madame Anna Bishop ; we have yet, however, some further excellencies to notice in the admirable performances of this really accomplished Cantatrice j and it is this :-her singing of the good, old, pathetic, or, even, arch British Ballad is, in our opinion, unrivalled. The very soul of musical and poetic feeling is so charmingly displnycd, and with so much natural, as well as cultivated talent, as to take tho audience, as it were, by storm, and to draw down tho most rapturous and sincere applause. On WeJnesday evening tho concert was under tho especial patronage of tho Mayor and Aldermen of the City, and a very genteel audience was present, to en- joy the captivating strains of the fair songstress, who was repeatedly encored, and, who, at tho conclusion of tho Concert, was absolutely covered with bouquets, from the Boxes generally. Last evening the performances Wore under'tho ...

THE NEXUS OF THE COLONIES. (From the Spectator,) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 6 February 1857

THE NEXÜS OP THE COLONIES. (From the Spectator,) The interference of the British Government with the colonies is reduced to a minimum, yet at no time has the connection between the mother-country and the colonies been closer, or bound by more numerous and complicated ties. Testimony to the fact was given at the entert.iinmeut to celebrate the departuie of tho fn st of the new line of mail-steamers between this country and Australia! We have estab- lished a postage with Australia, not exceeding in cost tho average postage of inland letters before Rowland Hill's time. Mr Youle, the secretary to .the General Postal Assosution of the Australian Colonies, mentions that there are between 1500 and 20 JO Australian children in Europe for tho purposes of education ; which shows how desirable it is to have a free letter communication. Of all the British colo- nies, Victoria, first visited 20 years ago by an European settler, stands highest in tho pro- portion of letters to the mother-country....

LATEST EUROPEAN. HAS ENGLAND A SEPARATE EXISTENCB?- I The policy of the allies, «hatever was origin- ally intended by it, has had the effect of inves- ting the behaviour of the miserable King of Naples with something approaching to dignity He was commanded-for the "counsels" of two such statos as France and England to such a sovereign as the Two Sicilies are commands to moderate the excesses of his government; and he promptly refused to listen to dictation of any sort. He was threatened but he stood firm against every attempt at intimidation. The two great powers feeling that they hadcoinmit ed themselves, or fearing, perhaps, ulterior con- sequences, give way, and in doing so made an idle parade of menace which they think neces- sary to account for by saying that it is a measure of " eventual protection" on the behalt of their own subjects. The King of Naples mayi per- chance, put up iiith the interruption of diplo- matic relations. He has vindicated ii the face of Europe his right...

But nearly all men agree, that its cluVf pre- P ventitive is knowledge.
