INSTRUCTION AND AMUSEMENT. (From the London Times.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 13 March 1857

INSTRUCTION AND AMÜSEMENT. (From the London Times.) Every man who thinks for himself, or thinks at all, knows that if we would presume to edify, we mast submit to please. Nay, na human nature is by common consent self« willed, capricious, and rebellious, it must be courted and won, or it will snap its fingers at us and be off altogether. The inference is, that the movement which exhibits itself ¡a Athenseums, Institutes, Libraries, Museums, and the rest should be treated with a, very light hand. It is not everybody who has done so, or who can do so. Some very im* portant or very eloquent gentlemen hove har« angued a mixed town population on the facili- ties now offered them for rising to be States- men, Lord Chancellors, Bishops, great wr!-> tera, or inventors. Some have described the vast intellects and the boundless attainment* originally cooped np in the tbin form of an artisan or the rough skiti of a plough boy. some have promised extrication from all man- lier of political a...

THE NEW CONGRESS OF PARIS: ITS CHARACTER AND OBJECTS. (From the Economist, December 13.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 13 March 1857

THE NEW CONGlih.Sá OF PARIS : ITS CHARAC f ER AND OBJECTS. I (From the Economist, December 13.) few eau have failed to remark the wide difference iu the estimate of the French and English Press of the tneaniug dud im- portance to be attached to the Congress which will shortly assemble iu Paris, as sup- plementary to that which was held in the month of May. The French press and the French public still more, do not hesitate to admit that the circumstances of this new Congress form one of the greatest triumphs of diplomacy on the part of England which Europe has witnessed for many years, while the English press treat it as a concession unwillingly wrung frdm England. For the last three months the recognised organs of the French Ministers have been insisting that another Congress was necessary and would beheld, while those who were supposed to be best acquainted with tbe views of the English Government denied equally the po- licy and the probability of euch an event. Now, when it is dec...

MISCELLANEOUS SHIPPING. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 13 March 1857

MISCELLANEOUS SHIPPING. The City of Hobart arrived at the wharf at half-past 5 o'clock last evening, having loft Melbourne on the 10th instant. She was detained for several hours in, consequence of losing the key of her propeller, it being necessary to supply its placo with a temporary one. Shortly before arriving here, the temporary one was lost also, which accounts for tho timo occupied by ber in reaching the wharf. The fixing of a new key will prevent her sailing on Saturday (to-morrow). The time of her departure has been fixed for 3 o'clock on Tuesday. The T.S.N.

THE REV. DR. LIVINGSTONE. (From the Daily News, December IS.) Dr. Livingstone reached Southampton from London at seven o'clock on Thursday night. Mr. Randall, with whom Mrs. Livingstone has been staying, and other gentlemen met him at the railway station. Yesterday a num- ber of gentlemen paid their respects to him, although his arrival in the town was not gen- erally known. He is nearly forty years of age his face is furrowed through hardships, and is almost black with exposure to a burning sun. He hesitates in speaking, has a peculiar ac- cent,, it at a loss sometimes for a word, and the words of his sentences are occasionally inverted. - His language is, however, good, and he bas an immense fund of most valuable and interesting information which he com- municates most freely. He is in good.health and spirits. His left arm, which was broken by a lion, is improperly set, a defect which he will endeavor to get corrected while be is in England. He has an affection of the uvula, which...

THE MOON'S INFLUENCE ON VEGETATION. (From Glenny's Garden Almanack.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 13 March 1857

THE MOON'S INFLUENCE ON VEGETATION. (From Glenny's Garden Almanack.) "We do not profess astrology, nor "study the stars;' but some years ago we knew a very clever man who did so, and he furnished us with some popular notions about the moon's influence that were likely to interest gardeners. Our Almanack for 1848 offered as we thought an excellent opportunity for communicating them to fifty thousand readers, and it was in demand for years after it had been all sold. At the request of many who have only heard it talked of, we give the article entire ; for it is nearly 10 years since it was published, and will be new to many. At the same time we beg it may be understood that we offer no opinion of our ownfp we may, however, give the opinion and practice of the late Mr. Hop- wood, of Twickenham, a nuseryrnan of great experience-famed above all things, for his stocks. He might as easily have been persuaded to fiill his mouth full of cold water, and sit on the fire till it boiled, as to h...

' SIR,-I have just read Max Miller'« letter to the Mayor and Corporation of Hobart Town in refer- ence to Mr Peart-anything more silly or imperti- nent will not be easily found. But that's nothing ; any one who knows Miller, knows that he combines the intellect of a " Verdant Green" with the man- ners of a man-milliner-whut 1 ant surprised at is that with Mr Yates (who really is an educated man) at his elbow, such "ungrainmatical twaddle '. cou'd issue from the T. D. N.-the last sentence of the remai kable epistle to which I have alluded runs thus " again reminding you"-(where the " again" is both redundant and irrelevant") that while so important a body as that to which you belong cannot be too economical, from the very position it commands, it ought to be very cautious of incurring the charge of niggardly thrift: " believe me" &c, a pretty instance of ana...
