SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 11 October 1854

SOUTH" AÜSTEALIA. The certainty and determination of re" presentative bodies when without requisite qu^lificatioi.s of experience and education has just' been evidenced in this colony. The Legislative Council have passed a string of resolutions condemnatory of their «former proceedings anti of the constitution hill they have sent home. Now either they knew what they were doing on that occasion or they did not. If they did we can think but meanly of their deliberative qualities when they wish so soon toundo it agein-if they dit! not, then no reliance is te be placed upou their sagacity ucither way there is little weight attaching to their sentiments. A government land sale had taken place and unusually high prices obtained. Town- ship allotments realized .167 12s.;6d per acre, suburban sections £1 15s 6d, and country sections £ I 17s 4d per acre.

VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 11 October 1854

VICTORIA. On the 6th instant the price of gold had fallen to £3 19s. Cd., Und continued so to our latest dates. The Customs' returns of the stocks in the bonded warehouses exhibit the following results as to liquors:-428,233 gallons brandy, 133,310 gallons Geneva. The promoters of the Ship Canal and Dock Company are again in the field, and the follow ing extracts from their prospectus will afford some idea of the extent of their views : " The ship canal is proposed to join the river at the,bend just below Raleigh's Whar contiguous to tho ship dock of Mr Crusse!

"THE COOEY" [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 11 October 1854

"THE COOEY" Of the Australian aboriginal is much more musical, and to the full as expressive as the ejaculations which many of the European nations use for the purpose of calling a comrade, saluting a friend, or bidding a défiance to an enemy. Nor indeed is it iinuch less celebrated at the present day 'than many of those, foi throughout the inte- rior of tho country the cooey has been adopted almost universally by the whites, and many a traveller who has lost his way in the depths of the wood, or become benighted in a lonely spot, has regained the beaten track or been introduced to a hospitable fireside by the assistance of the well-known sound; and an age hence when some Australian lexicographer shall compile a dic- tionary for the use of his count- rymen, "cooey" will doubtless bo,one of the words with which he will enrich and fertilise the English language. Even the-streets of the great metropolis of Britain have resounded with the sounds of the cooey, and the way it came to pass...

NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 11 October 1854

NEW SOUTH WALES. A s li hot improvement may be reported in the tone of commercial matters at Syd- ney ; but it is not to be relied upon as a proof of returning vivacity in trade. It may rather be taken as a temporarry ex- citement caused by the opening of the spring trade. * In the Legislative Council several mo- tions were progressing ; and among¡>t the most important topics, were the Estimates for the City ¡sewerage and Water Supply. .£33,675 was voted for the purposes of sew- erage in 1854 j for the same purposes in 1855, £95,750 was also passed. For the water supply, ¿"43,576 was voted for 1854 ; ,£43,011 for 1855. It is a pity our corpo- ration have not some erfergy to propose measures for submission to the Council that would he as useful for the drainage of this city. In the General Estimates, ¿3000 was granted in aid of contributing to the Paris Exhibition.

The Mercury; TOWN EDITION. HOBART TOWN: WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 11th, 1854. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 11 October 1854

m^m^ TOWN EDITION. HOBART TOWN: WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER Uth, 1854. Men are little conscious ofthat which is best fitted for their condition, most suit- able to their capacities, or most condu- cive to their ultimate happiness. This is in the nature of things.To take a com- prehensive view of the past; to look without prejudice on the present ; and» in combination with these, to scan with prescient eye the future, is given to few. The history of the world lingers once and again over such, but they are few and far between : and, even then, the character lias often times been attributed to, rather than possessed byf the hero elevated for our admiration. In some cases, his actual existence has become matter of doubt ; in otheis, the peculiar nature of his genius has been mistaken. Thus, the personality of Homer is denied-Lycurgus is asserted bv scholars of no mean celebrity to be a mere myth, whilst on the other hand Macchiavelli, after three centuries ot infamous cele- brity, is now describ...
