CAPE NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 25 March 1857

CAPE NEWS. We can still make nothing of our news from the Erontier. They ara so abundant and contradictory by every post that people" begin"to doubt whether there has been any real news for the last six or twelve months. The authorities have certainly been kept by incessant rumorls of danger from Caff res, and it ia possible that this vigilance has been the mcaus of averting the danger. We would say nothing to abate it, but we hope the time is not far distant when we shall be ablo to assure "intending emigrants" that the Cape of Good Hope does not hold its tenure of life st the goodwill and pleasurejof savages. We are glad to see it finally admitted that Moshesb and his neighbours of tho Free State, have no cause of war, nor are likely to find any in the conduct ofthat chief. We are glad to see that impolitic ordinances res- pecting aliens and the Press, are likely to be repudiated by the more intelligent and least prejudiced of the inhabitants. We regarded them from the first, as m...

TO THE PUBLIC. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 25 March 1857

TO THE PUBLIC. tul current Quarter is drawing to a clcse, and we may proudly and confidently invite a comparison of this Journal .with any and all of our Contemporaries. It contains, although published only thrice a week, quadruple the amount of matter, the earliest, mott correct, and most varied intelligence, Foreign and Domestic, while its Circulation is three to one of some, and more than two to one of all, thus affording the most extended and advantageous medium for the announcements of our Advertising friends. Progressing as it does, we may safely predict, that in twelve months more, the " MERCÜKY" will attain the comparative position in this Colony, which the Great London "TIMES" maintains in England: we can assure our numerous Subscribers and the Public, also, that no exertion on our part shall be wanting to render it, in every respect, worthy of their patronage and commendation. We would, therefore, remind those who may wish to become Subscribers in future, that the present ...

LONDON WOOL REPORT.—January, 1857. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 25 March 1857

LONDON WOOL REPORT.-January, 1857. Perhaps at no former period was more animation exhibited than at the present. The presence of several of the largest buyers from Huddersfield and Leeds has caused considerable inquiry in our market, and largo parcels of secondhand wools have been sold at an aver ago advance on lost sales of ljd per lb.-combing wools and good scoured have realised 2d, and in a few instan- ces 2|d. The Landon dealers, who have bought largely from July and November sales, have met the market, mid at least 1U00 bales hare changed bunds. Importers will notsell, preferring the usual mode of disposing, and await tlie result, notwitlistandinc the present tempt, iug pi ¡ces. The consumption of wool still exceeds the supply, and berne speculation exists as to tbe future course of prices. That «resent rates will be maintidnod in Feb- ruary is not questioned, indeed 2d advance is generally expected and believed as probable on all descriptions ; those of combing character will ...

EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE TO 12TH JANUARY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 25 March 1857

EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE TO 12th JANTJAEY. By. the arrival, at Victoria on Thursday last, of the E. M. Steam-ship Columbian, we have European intelligence to the 12th of January, and, in accordance with our usual custom, devote the whole of our available space for the following summary : The news, so far as European politics are in question, is more cheering than it has boen for a long time. The eeneral feeling in England respecting the hostilities at Canton is strongly in support of the conduct of the Britisli authorities. Government intend to relinquish the ad- ditional 9d in the income Tax, but to submit to the Commons the necessity of re-imposing it. Burglaries and personal outrages continue undiminished. It is believed that the trans- portation system will be resumed. A treasonable conspiracy is suspected to exist in the Neapolitan army. The South-east coast has been swept recently by severe storms, and several casualties have occurred at sea. Lord Napier has been appointed Britis...

THEATRE ROYAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 25 March 1857

THEATRE ROYAL. Jin. MoKxak Bücuasaít made his first appearaneè on Monday evening, in the character of Hamlet. Pre- pared as we were for great things, we little anticipated such an intellectual treat as Mr. Buchanan provided for us. 'lhere were points made-and readings given to the text-which uuny never before witnessed or beard-and ourselves amongst the number. The per- formance altogether was a "study"-every look, every gesture, every action-wns clearly the result of much thought. It was a most elaborately finished, chaste, and classical embodiment of the character, and clcirly evidenced that at " Wurtemburg," the " form and moving-' mid the " action"' of man had bud a con- siderable portion of Hamlef s time devoted tctheir study. To dwell upon the "new readings" given by Mr. Buchananto many pa*sagesiii the play,\\ould fur exceed our limits, besides which, »e do not ieel ourselves com- petent, at a moment's notice, to do so.

THE MERCURY. $uuItsfteU fHontmn, GHrtmcsarn & -Tntnj WEDNESDAY MOUSING, MARCH 25 1857 Mr. Grïïgson's Ministry will meet the representatives of the People this after- noon. It would be useless to say that we do not feel considerable anxiety on the occasion, for every citizen, who takes an interest in the future welfare of the Colony-no matter how limited that in- terest may be-must experience the same. Up to the present moment the policy of the new Cabinet has been shrouded in a Cimmerian darkness which none but a Ministerial eye could penetrate : this day it will be revealed. We are as yet alike ignorant of the nature and quality of their political wares. Their measures may, or they may not, be such as will meet the necessities of the present time ; and it is manifestly impossible for us, until they are fairly exposed to our view, to volun- teer an opinion concerning their value. In a few hours from the moment at which we are now writing, their policy-what- ever it may be-wi...
