MEMORIAL OF SIR ROBERT PEEL. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 16 March 1857

MEMORIAL OF Sill ROBERT PEEL. The Staffordshire Advertiser pledges itself for the genuineness of the following prayer, which was found in the private Cabinet of tho late Sir li. Peel, in July, 1850 : " Great and Merciful God, Ruler of all na- tions, help me daily to repair to Thee, for wisdom and grace suitable to the high office whereto thy Providence has called me. Strengthen, O Lord, my natural powers and faculties, that the weighty and solemn inter- ests'with which Thy servant is charged may not greatly sutler from weariness ol' body and confusion of mind. Design, I beseech Theo, to obviate or correct the ill effects ol' such omissions or mistakes in my proceedings as may result from partial knowledge, infirmity of judgment, or unfaithfulness in any with whom I may have to do. '. Let Thy blessing rest upon my Sovereign and my country. Dispose the hearts ol' all in high stations to adopt such measures as will preserve public order, foster industry, and al- leviate distress.

THE CONSERVATIVE PARTY—WHO IS TO LEAD THE HOUSE OF COMMONS? (From the Daily News, Deccmler 11.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 16 March 1857

THE CONSERVATIVE PARTY-WHO IS TO LEAD THE HOUSE OF COMMONS? * ' ' (From (lie Daily ITeios, Deccmler 11.) Who is to lead the opposition in the House of Commons next session? Mr. Disraeli, Mr. Walpole, ¡air John Pakington, or Mr. Gladstone ? This is a question at present puzzling and perplexing the Tories. The Quarterly Review lately promised the party that great guns should be fired off in the next session of Parliament. Undisturbed by the threatened volleys, Lord Palmerston has had the spirit and sense to summon it to meet at the usual time. Time, therefore, begins to press. And, if the Tory plans are ready, who is to execute and direct them in the Commons ? It is perhaps to aid in tho solution of this question that Mr. Disraeli has suddenly with- drawn himself to Paris. There, at all events, he is out of the way of deliberations and ne- gotiations which must be difficult and deli- cate so far as ^he is individually concerned. Thero, too, he may be receiving inspirations from a high...

MR. BUCHANAN'S ANTECEDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 16 March 1857

MR. BUCHANAN'S ANTECEDENTS. The election of Mr. James Buchanan as President of the American Republic recalls attention to his political career and it becomes all the more interesting to Englishmen on account of his recent residence in this country as the representative of the United States Government. Mr. Buchanan is, we believe, a native of that State of Pennsylvania, which, by deciding in his favour, is understood to have been the chief means of his election. His birth is dated in the year 1791, which makes him a senator in the sense of age ; for at sixty five he enters upon the most import- ant responsibilities that can fall to the lot of any citizen of the American continent. His parents appear to have been respectable agriculturists, and they were enabled to give him a collegiate education. At the early age of eighteen he took the highest collegiate honors and soon afterwards he made choice of the bar as a profession. When only twenty-three years old his political life began, f...

THE STAFF APPOINTMENTS IN THE ARMY. (From the Times, December 5.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 16 March 1857

THE STAFF APPOINTMENTS IN THE A1ÍMY. (From the Times, December 5.) It is with much pleasure that we call atten- tion to the new orders of the Duke of Cam- bridge, with respect to staff appointments in the army. They constitute, in effect, a full acknowledgement of the principle for which we have contended so long, and an answer to the multitude of objections which have been made to our arguments by those who support the existing system either from interest or dis- like of change. It would bo difficult to over- rate the importance of such a measure as is likely to be promulgated. We all know what appointments to the Staff have been hereto- fore. Even the posts on the General Staff have been for the most part filled by men whoso on- ly claim was good interest at head-quarters, while every general surrounded himself with his sons; nephews, and personal acquaintance without shame or scruple. There is no need to refer to the many scandals which are in the memory of those who take an inte...

THE MERCURY. Published Monday, Wednesday & Friday MONDAY MORNING, MARCH 16, 1857. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 16 March 1857

THE MERCURY. IPuuItslJrti itïoitlwïï, tMcïmESïnro *JrrfOag MONDAY MORNING, MARCH 10,1857. THE present state of the colony affords to every thinking mind 'matter pregnant with gloom and apprehension ; gloomy, from the exodus of so many,of our best men, and from the evils consequent upon a failing population ; and apprehensive, from the difficulty of providing a remedy for those evils. The Census about to be taken, of the whole population of the colony, will furnish a document, which will, perhaps, startle some of our legisla- tors, who, gifted with no statesmanlike qualities, are unable to .see beyond the passing hour, or unwilling to gather wis- dom from experience. ' From the Census will be seen-and its data cannot be disputed-whatfcarful ravages Emigration has made in the ranks of our most valuable population, and, that notwithstanding the money lavished on an injudicious scheme of immigration, the balance will be large- ly against us. Some people attribute this injurio113 state o...

WHAT NEXT? [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 16 March 1857

WHAT NEXT? IT is pretty generally- understood in well-in- formed political circles, that Mr. Justice Horne is about to retiro upon a pension. To such an arrangement no insuperable objection will he raised by tho Greg.-on Administration; indeed His Honor could demand a retiring allowance as a right. Wero it not so, how- ever, it would be an act of the basest ingrati- tude on the part of Mr. Gregson to look with a cold eye upon any demand which michfc be made by Mr. Horne, moro especially after the active and zealous part' Hi« Honor lias taken in forming the present Administration. True it is, that the Judore did not succeed in in- ducing Mr. T. J. Knight to join tho Gregson Ministry in the capacity of Attorney General. But what of that ? It is equally true that the want ol' success did not arise from any lack of earnest entreaty on Mr. Home's part. It was no fault of his that Mr. Knight's stubborn and intractable spirit refused to yield. His Honor did his best ; and no man, judge or ...

GOLD! IN THE SOUTH ESK WITHIN FIVE MILES OF LAUNCESTON. From Saturday's Cornwall Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 16 March 1857

GOLD! IN THE SOUTH ESK WITHIN" FIVE MILES OF LAUNCESTON. From Saturday's Cornwall Chronicle. Great excitement has been caused in town on and since Thursday, by a well founded re- port, which circulated rapidly, that gold had been found in considerable quantities near the third basin on the South Esk , Bankeiv, mer- chants, millers, mechanics, labourers and idlers all rushed aeross the river in the punt to the West Bank of the Tamar to ascertain personally the truth of some rather exaggerated state- ments which wore in circulation, respecting the gold discovery. They were well rewarded for their tioublo, for on travelling about four miles up the South Esk the gold deposits were pointed out in the now dry bed ol' the river. They are however moro indications of a rich field, lying somewhere, perhaps much farther up the river. In every crev ice and pocket, where the prospectors washed the deposits of silt, gold, bright nuggetty, and water worn, was found, and though no very largo nugget...

THE VALLEY OF THE EUPHRATES. (From Mitchell's Maritime Register, Dec. 6.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 18 March 1857

THE VALLEY OF THE EUPHRATES. {From Mitchell's Maritime Register, Dee.G.) A railway to unite the Mediterranean with the highest navigable point of the river Euphrates is, from its very novelty and the strange associations connected with the region it wili traverse, an enterprise calculated to create a remarkable degree of public interest, The idea of the modern locomotive dashing across the plain f Shinar, and awakening the echoes amid the vestiges of the earliest mon» timents reared by human hands-of railway stations, with all their modern appliances, er- ected besides those mounds which are all that remain of the vast palaces of the Kings of Babylon-has something singularly striking and almost oppressive. The project, however is no dream, but a living reality. A Company that has been formed some time sinco laid their plans before the Foreign-office, and Co oncl Chesney and Sir John M'Neill aro at the present moment employed upon the survey of the projected routes. It is proposed to...

THE LIBERTY OF THE PRESS. (From the London Times.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 18 March 1857

THE LIBERTY OF THE PRESS. (From the London Times.) The action for libel brought by the Earl of Lucan against our contemporary, the Baily News, has ended in a verdict for the defend- ants. We need not say that such a result is, in our opinion, most satisfactory. Not only the Press, but the country in general, has reason to rejoice that the jury which was empanncllcd yesterday in the Exchequer had the good sense and the good feeling to defeat the attempt to punish a journal on so frivo. lons a charge. The article which was the subject of this abortive action was written soon after the report of the Chelsea Board of Officers was given to the world, and merely expressed with regard lo that document the opinions which we will be huid to say, were held hy nine-tenths of the thinking men in the United Kingdom. Lord Lucan had been, from I he beginning of the war, mixed up with the affairs of the army ; ho bad been con- cerned in the calamitous charge at Balaklava; he had quarrelled with the...
