Sir,-1 wish to call your attention to the great inconvenience the citizeais are put to, in consequence of the want of proper bathing places in and about the City. Some year» since a range of buildings and a jetty was constructed by subscription at the old bathing place in the Domain, but they had io give way for the Patent Slip, mid Sir William Denison promised that a jetty and more suitable bathing houses should be con- structed and erect-ïd a littl« lo iver down the river.

YESTERDAY'S MARKETS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 5 February 1858

YESrERDAY'S MARKETS. Business throughout the day lins been exceedingly dull and a complete dead ness appears to prevail in the grain market. Wheat manifestly exhibits a down- ward tendency, and cannot now be quoted tit 8s. per bushel the bust samples, for there is uu evident disinclination to buy at that figure, a decline being an- ticipated very shortly. Colonial oats realize from 5s. Gd, to Gs. Gd. according; to tim cample, but the market is at. present very scantily supplied. Foreigw oats ure still quoted'at 5s. to 5s. Gd. but; many holders ure not disposed to connel into the mai kel nt so low u rate. Hay now comes in plentifully and pricea are rather lower; the loose hay realises, from £5 10s, to £7 per ton according to quality. The hydraulic pressed meets, with very little enquiry und is quoted at-. ,£8 to £0. Potatoes come in but slowly und business is dull ; the hist quotations: still obtain, £7 10s. to £10 per ton ac- cording to the sample. The flour market is not so briaTc ...

THE MERCURY [PUBLISHED DAILY.] FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 5, 1858. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 5 February 1858

THE MERCURY fpuDMsuED MA.ir.r.1 FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 5,1858. It is not an easy thing at any time to avoid extremes. But it is never moro difficult' perhaps than when excited temper, or outraged personal feeling, has .mixed up with the matters at issue, and power, of any kind, is in the hands of the injured or insulted. Few, but those who have had such opportunities, could 'possibly understand, how strong the .temptation to revenge is at such times, or how very vindictively the best men may act in such circumstances. The proverb that revenge is sweet has its origin in a very natural sentiment, so natural indeed, that it requires consider- able force of will, and much genuine benevolence to be able to forbear its gratification. It is act-editable thing therefore that after such great provoca- tion so audaciously repeated, the House of Assembly should have dealt with Mr. Abbott in so humane and moderate manner. His offences against the rules of debate and decorum have been pitiable. But, w...
