THE MERCURY. Pulished Monday, Wednesday & Friday FRIDAY MORNING, MARCH 13, 1857. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 13 March 1857

THE MERCURY. iUuuItalitb íHantiaa, SJSelmcßimu ÄiFrfOau FRIDAY MORNING. MARCH 13,1857. IT HAS now become a matter of notoriety that in neither of the Australian Colonies has the advent of Responsible Govern» ment been productive of those practical and beneficial results so fondly aud confi- dently predicted ; and it is equally notorious that in neither of them bas its introduction been less fruitful in those re- spects than it has been in Tasmania. With the lessons and the warnings furnished by Sydney and Victoria-with their wisdom and experience to guide, and their mani- fest follies to deter-it was not un reasonably anticipated that our political barque, as it was launched under more favorable auspices than theirs, would like- wise bave been attended with more beneficial results. Animated too as we then believed, and still believe, the citizens of this Colony to have been with an ear- nest and a sincere desire to yield every countenance and support to those who were entrusted with...

CHINA. ADDITIONAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 13 March 1857

CHINA. ADDITIONAL IXTEtLIOENCE. We subjoin some additional items of Chinese' intelligence extracted from the late Hong Kong papers : - .- - -- -~~T - - - SHANGHAI.-Our only information from the North is comprised in the following extracts from two notes, the latter being from a native correspondent:-" We are all,quiet ,up -here. The senior naval officer called upon the Tsou tai some short time since, '? and yesterday, the Taou-tai called on board the Pique, and was, of course, shown all the wonders of a British man-of-war. Ho received a Chinese salute of three guns. I wonder whether the next will be fired at him with the addition of shot, shell and such other missiles. It is an " ou dit" here, that the Emperor has sent down instruc- tions to drive the foreigners into the sea ; but this is very likely what a friend would classi lilly designate as "gup." There is a large quantity of silk in the mar- ket-over 400 bales ; but from the bad news from home, and the high price demanded, lit...

THEATRE ROYAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 13 March 1857

THEATRE ROYAL. THE Sisters havo each, taken their farewell Benefit, Miss Adelaide on Wednesday, and Miss Joey, last even- ing, and both with tho same performances, Cinderella and Clarisse. Of the former wo, need say nothing, as the public have lind nu opportunity of witnessing the udmirahle and mognifieont styls, in which it has been brought before a Tasmanian audience, and with respect to Clarisse, we may observe, that it is a translation, and, in eomo respects, an adaptation irom tho French, characterized by ¡utensil interest, which was woll sus- tained by the etquisite acting of tho fair beneficiaries, excellently supported by the other peefonners. The word " Farewell" has a melancholy sound, but an endearing influence, and when pronounced either by, or to established favourites, it has u more then an evanescent meaning. Tho remembrance of the Sisters will dwell in our momorios long otter their departure, mingled, perhaps, with regret, that their stay with us has been so short, b...

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

SYDNEY BT the Tasmania we are in receipt of our files to tbe ?tb inst. The Empire, which has oc- cupied so prominent a position in Sydney has, .wo regret to say, become involved in consider- able difficulties ; indeed, so far as tfo Umpire in its original form is concerned it is to all in- tents defunct. A statement contained ia a single sheet dated on the 5th gives an account of its affairs which appear to be in a state of ponsiderable but not-if time were allowed irretrievable embarrassment. A large majority of Mr. Parkes's Creditors had held a meeting and had agreed to certain proposals submitted by that gentleman the effect of which would have enabled the ¡Empire to have continued its existence. These proposals however, had not been acceded to by Mr Lutwyche who held a mortgage over the Empire of ¿611000 and the journal was advertised for sale. In the leading article of the 5th the Editor writes : "If our readers will bear with our crippled state for a few days the Empire may ye...

THE NIGER EXPEDITION. From the London Daily News, Dec. 13. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 16 March 1857

THE NIGER EXPEDITION. From the London Daily News, Dec. 13. Her Majesty's Government has, it is stated, consented to send another -expedition up ihc Niger. We us: the word consented, because it is only on the application of external pres- sure that the political servants of the Crown ever initiate such enterprises. Their utility and character, therefore depend, more on the competency or incompctcncy of those who press than of those who are pressed on those occasions. Now we venture to interpose a doubt whetli8r the Government is well adrised in the ri solution it is said to have adopted on this question ; and as there was a good deal of scciccy nnd management practised in reference to the lest expedition np the Niger for which the public had to pay, it is the more desira- ble that the public should be fully informed who arc the promoters of the new enterprise, what are its objects, why with so much haste and despatch another expedition is required, and what arc the terms on which it ...

IMPORTANT DIRECTIONS TO GAS CONSUMERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 16 March 1857

IMPORTANT DIRECTIONS TO GAS CONSUMERS. WE beg to direct public attention to the fol- lowing very plain and useful directions, with which we have been favoured by a correspond- ent, who is, evidently, well veisedinthe burn ing of Gas. 1st. Let the Metre be fixed as closely as pos sible to the outward wall of the building, so that little or none of the main or service pipe should be on the premises. 2nd. By no means suffer anyone to play with the taps, or the metre, for should it get shifted in any way from its position, both damage and danger would be the result ; and, in addition, a waste of Gas, to the detriment of the pocket of the consumer. 3rd. Make yourself acquainted with the index dials, and the Metre, so that when the Company's inspector calls for the purpose of examining the dial?, to ascertain the quantity of Gas consumed, you will, be enabled to keep check also. 4th. Before turning on the main for lighting, seo that all j'our small taps are turned off. 5th. In first light...

THE TEST OF PERFECT HEALTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 16 March 1857

THE TEST OF PERFECI" HEALTH. Sir Astley Cooper said that no man ought to know he had a stomach, Unfortunately, however, the two extremes of luxury and privation, teach a con- siderable portion of mankind that they have stom- achs, and very troublesome ones too. The diggers after gold in our gulches, the alluvial of our rivers and our dry plains, suffer much from diseases of this organ, and of the liver and bowels At pre- sent, however.there is much less fear of these com- plaints than formerly. All intelligent miners are aware that they can be readily combatted and cur- ed by the timely adminstration of Holloways cele- brated Fills. One of the leading forms in which disease of the stomach and bowels exhibits itself in the interior-and we may add in the cities too-is a debilitating diarrhoea. Nothing that has ever been tried either in disentery diarrhoea in this country, has uniformly succeeded in curing those maludies except Holloway's Pills. It is stated that out of five hundred ca...

CLAP TRAP EXPOSED. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 16 March 1857

CLAP TRAP EXPOSED. THE Premier of Tasmania has expressed him- self in highly indignant terms-and very properly so-at the mercenary supposition that ho would ever insinuate his hands into the public pocket, or soil his patriotic fingers with government pay. His oft reiterated and ostentatious declaration, that he would "do" the business of the country for the honor and glory of the thing, has, however, strange it may appear, been received-and that in quar- ters where common sense is generally allowed to prevail-with a laugh of scornful incredulity. His avowal has been treated as a mere rute a transparent dodge-a disreputable sham ; and some have had the impertinence and the temerity to insinuate something like the fol- lowing as a solution of the whole affair. When the question of salary was under con- sideration, in the House of Assembly, Mr. Innes, with a candour that did him credit, frankly acknowledged that he had vague no- tions, that, some day or another, he should be Premier h...

THE CLOVEN FOOT. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 16 March 1857

THE CLOVEN FOOT. WE have heard it asserted on tolerable authority that Mr Gresson, not unmindful of Mr. Maxwell Miller's important servicos, lias it in contemplation to reward him with a lu- crative government appointment. This at oneo explains away the apparent ingratitude of the Ministry in not having provided something more tangible than a non-official seat lor this unblushing but indefatigable parasite in their Into ministerial arrangements. Wc were half inclined to reproach Mr. Gregson ourselves (which, of course, wo should bo sorry to do) lor having overlooked the claims of this un- flinching partizan ; and truly delighted aro we to find that our estimate of the Premier was a correct one. It now appears that Mr Gregson does intend-that ho has intended all along-to reward the faithfulness of Mr. Miller in the way most grateful and acceptable to his feelings. We aro no advocate for gratuitous services of any kind, but more especially when those services aro of a degrading charac...
