f&f .Ä TOWN EDITION. HOBAKT TOWN: SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 16TH, 185*. " WE have got through a good deal of work quietly to-night," quoth one of the government members to another when leaving the council chamber on Tuesday evening. It is not often allowable to men to praise themselves; but, ia this instance, the honorable and learned mem- ber indulged in m very justifiable com- placency. A good deal of work was got through, and that of » very valuable, though it may be not of a very interest- ing description. On that evening, the Attorney-General's " bill to amend the " process, practice, and mode of plead " ing at law, and for the general regula- tion of proceedings in the Supreme " Court of Van Diemen's Land," went through committee; and, as it came from their Iranda, promises to be the most uselul piece of legislation that has as yet emanated from the Council. It has always been a species of reproach against English jurisprudence, that mul- tiplicity of laws operated to the co...

OUR NEW GOVERNOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 16 September 1854

OUR NEW GOVERNOR. WE are enabled to announce, onun questionable authority, that Sir HENRY FOX YOUNG, the late Governor of South Australia, is to be the succesior of Sir WILLIAM THOMAS DENISON-and has received the official notification of his ap- pointment. A letter was received by his Excellency from the New Governor, by yesterday's mail, the contents of which, we believe, were calculated to obtain information re- specting the most important subjects on which he may be called upon to decide. His arrival may be expected in about six weeks. We are glad to find our anticipa-, tions as to the non-appointment of Mr. E. D. THOMPSON to the vacant office confirmed. No precedent is known of a Colonial Secretary emer- ging into a Governorship. The idea is worthy of those who conceived it.

VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 16 September 1854

VICTORIA. Our files are to the 12th instant, and bring no intelligence calculated to cheer the prospects of our markets. Insol- vencies are on the increase, and for larger amounts than usual; and the great efforts made by the Press to ac- count for the depressed condition of the colony, evince the really anxiou s state in which all business matters continue. Sir C. Hotham was still at the Dig- gings, where his popularity was in- creasing. He will have some difficulty in fulfilling all the expectations that are indulged in from him. The crusade against conditional pardon-men was as strong as ever. Whatever power exists in the Gover- nor-Generalship to alter this most un- warrantable state of things will, we hope, be exercised by the new holder of that important office. A mischievous though unintentioned hoax had been perpetrated on all Mel- bourne. The arrival of the Greùt Britain from quarantine in the Bay was received with firing of cannon, rockets, &c, and similar marks of...
