MONDAY, I7lh JULY. RICHES IN PROSPECT, EXTREMELY ELIGIBLE FARM.-À Di ive from Hobart Town. If there is one point mure than any other upon which there is nnunivèrtul agreement it íb, "that «li extremes aro bad." We can deduce an illustration as bearing npoa our immediato subject, Experience bIiowb that a country wholly possessed by a few large proprietors is only equal in its general evils to those portions ot the world parcelled into infinitessimal divisions ; for notwithstanding our admira- tion ot Oliver Goldsmith, wo set down his " rood of land maintaining its man" as a transparent fallacy.

MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 12 July 1854

MELBOURNE. We have received Melbourne news up to the 6th. : - The land question seems still to be a sore cause of complaint, and is noticed by the Herald in its " Hints for the new Dynasty." "Apart from the local defects in its administration, to which, on pre- vious occasions, we have made some allusion, we conceive that a fundamental objection to the land in force amongst us is, that it was adapted rather to the pur- pose of founding a colony than to that of advancing the prosperity of one that has reached the position Victoria now occupies." This certainly is a very good one sided view of the question, but it is not a fair proposition of the question at issue. It is not whether the present land system shall be continued, but whether the altera- tion of it shall affect the possessions of those which possession was effected by avail- ing themselves of the system by which the disposal of the land was regulated, for tlie purpose stated, that is of *' found- ing a colony." Well, now t...

Scientific [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 12 July 1854

. tórtific Geological Discovery.-The Ger- man Association for the advancement of science, lately hele in Tubingen, appears to have been a most successful gather- ing'. In the course of the proceed- ings, Professor Karnat announced that Germany had coal enough to supply herself and alf the rest of the world for the next 500 years. This is important, if true; but the great fact elicited at the meeting was the clearing up of the mystery of the fossil human teeth exhibited at the preceding year's meeting, which were found it may be recollected, in the Swabian Alps, in strata of the mammoth. Since the meeting in 1852, however, a number of perfect human skulls have been found in the same locality with teeth in them, which discovery, if correctly reported, would naturally lead to the conclusion that a race of huma» beings was iu existence fcontenjno^aneouly with the mostodon, and other tfclielurgc ante- diluvian animals.

NEW NORFOLK QUARTER SESSIONS. (July lOth, before Joseph Hone, Esqulre) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 12 July 1854

NEW NORFOLK QUARTER SESSIONS. : (July lOth, before Joseph Hone, Esquire) John Hall and James Baker were in- dicted for stealing a pair of hames, a   bridle and a collar. &c, in November last, the property of Henry Cockerill. Mr Cockerill and his son identified all the articles, they swore also to having their stables broken into, in November, 1852, and the articles sto- len, Cockerill then reported the matter to the police, but heard nothing of them till May last, when he obtained a war- rant and took all the articles in the prisoner Hall's house. The only important feature in this case was that an old and respectable settler named Bansley, swore positively that in 1852,he sold the hames in ques- tion to prisoner Hall. The jury after a long deliberation, found both prisoners guilty. Sentence -seven years transportation. , A poor man named Samuel Johnson, with a drunken and worthless wife, was indicted for stealing fourteen tumblers, the property of Mr Thompson, ...

NEW ENGINE OF DESTRUCTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 12 July 1854

NEW ENGINE OF DESTRUCTION. In our last we gave an extract from the Paris correspondent of the Atlas, in reference to a new engine of war, said to be in possession of the Russians ; we now subjoin another version given by the   Paris correspondent of the Weekly Dis- patch, April 2nd : - " Some uneasiness has been felt here in consequence of the rumors that the Russians have in all their ships, pro-     jectiles of a much more destructive char- acter that those of either the English or French Navy. This is an error. They have no secret of this kind that is un- known here and, every French ship is well provided with the means of destruc- tion. A great deal has been said about the boulets asphyxeants, which produce it is said, the most terrible effects.
