THE MOSQUITO INDIANS (From the Times, December 4.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 18 March 1857

THE MOSQUITO INDIANS {From the Time», December 4.) It is about a few months ago that England was on the eve of a serious difficulty with the United States respecting certain affairs j in Central America. What was the matter j precisely very few could say-nobody, per- haps ; but it was understood to be about | certain Indians whom we had long ago en- gaged to protect, which protection, neverthe- less, the Americans conceived to be at vari- ance with their own understanding of the " Clayton-Bulwer Treaty." It is with no little hesitation that wo introduce names | so distasteful to the British public, who in general know nothing of Central America, except that it produces mahogany, aud a class of diplomatic questions as hard and im perishable.though not of the same beauty aud value. Towards the end of last summer we | had the agreeable announcement that the misunderstanding had been settled, and that British ingenuity would no longer be taxed to comprehend and appreciate that much ado ...

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 18 March 1857

MISCELLANEOUS. Parliamentary Committees -There was a certain wise ruler of New York, im- mortalized by Knickerbocker, who invented the art of governing hy proclamation. When the antiqninian New Zealander,graphically repre sented by Mr. Macau ley as viewing the dilapi- dated remains of London from the ruins of London-bridge, shall undertake-some few thousand years hence-to write the history of these times, it is to be hoped that he will do similar justice to the ingenuity of the man who invented "Parliamentary Committees." There never was a plan devised to exactly suited to meet the requirements of a difficult situation. We are a people prone to violent fits of virtuous indignation, followed by a re- action of apathy equally intense, mid this ingenious provision of commitiees precisely suits both conditions. Never did a conjuror take such pains as they do to convince an , uiience th tt his table was an hcnjst table : n I that by no hocus-pocus could the man a ti p of it be made to di...

COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE. CALCUTTA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 18 March 1857

COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE. CALCUTTA. We learn from Calcutta that the Electric Telegraph is nearly complete across the Egyptian Desert to Suez,   and that the railway has advanced to the centre station   and was to be available for passengers so far by the end of February. The whole line is to be completed in June, when the passage from Alexandria to Suez will     be accomplished in nine hours. This will shorten the time occupied in the transit of the malls between Eng- land and the East by two days, and this saving of time will also be effected in the transmission   of mails to and from Australia. Another day will soon be saved by the completion of some new lines of rail- way, and the improved speed in the existing ones between Calais and Marseilles. The English mails for India by the Australian mail packets to Galle, will not be available to India until some further arrangements are made as they will remain in the Galle...

THEATRE ROYAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 18 March 1857

THEATRE KOÏAL. Os Monday night, the performance of Mrs. Young in Love's Sacrifice, realised the favourable! anticipations, which her old theatrical friends bad formed, and elie sustained the part of Margaret Kintore with much feeling and ability, being admirably supported by Mr. Warner, in Matthew Elmore, whose conception and personation was vivid and truthful: at tho close of the fourth Act, he was loudly called before the curtain, an ovation which was repeated at the end of the play, .including Mrs. Young and Mr. Drummond in the triumph. We should, indeed, be guilty of an omission, if wo did not mention in terms of praise, tho excellent acting of Miss Glyndon, whose personation of Hermine added greatly to the interest of the drama. In the afterpiece of the Young Widow, Mr. and Mrs. Young delighted the audience, the former having acquired additional, vivacity, and more matured his- trionic power, since he last appeared on our stage : his Splash, with tiii original Dancing Lesson, t...

THE MERCURY. Published Monday, Wednesday & Friday WEDNESDAY MORNING, MARCH 18, 1857. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 18 March 1857

THE MERCURY. iPiihltsIicii fflontoan, CSartrntsuao AjFrfoaij WEDNESDAY MORNING. MARCH l8,1857. We are extremely glad that no obstruc- tion lias been offered to the business of the country, more than was necessarily en- tailed upon it by the formation of a new ministry. Independently of such obstruc- tion being erroneous in principle, it is fruitful of much embarrassment and manifest injustice. A moment's reflection will convince any thinking and rational person of the truth of this assertion. The Ministry who thus appeal to their con- stituents, and solicit again their suffrages, do so merely in compliance with the Con- stitutional Act. They are presumed to have defeated those who held the reins of government on some essential part of their policy ; and they are " sent for," on the assumption that they are prepared to submit such other measures for the adop- tion of parliaments they, when in Oppo- sition, deemed sufficient and indispensa- ble. To do this, they stand pledged as men o...

To the Editor of the Hobart Town Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 18 March 1857

To the Editor of the Hobart Town Mercury. Sir.-Would it be too much for me to solicit you to give room to the following facts, in your worthy journal-viz. : on the 10th of February last, a young lady in Melbourne, posted a letter to my care for her sister. The said letter contained £16 and was directed thus, "in care of John Slattery, Bathurst-street Watch-house, Hobart Town, Tas- mania, for Anne Mitchell." The letter in question never came to me, nor any account of it. On the evening of the 14th instant I was passing the Post Office, and I saw in the list of unclaimed letters, for the month of Feb- ruary, a letter directed thus, "Anne Mitchell, Bat- tery Point." I went to the Dead Letter Office and enquired, when I found the letter directed to my- self, and not to Anne Mitchell, Battery Point. Now Sir, was it proper, on the part of the officers conducting that Department, to detain the letter and give me no notice of it being there, also put- ing it on the unclaimed list different ...
