SOCIAL AND BELIGIOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 10 February 1858

SOCIAL AND BELIGIOUS. There is comparatively little in the social condition of the colony, requiring notice in this Summary. A long continued drought had brought about its usual hines, hush fires, lu the neighborhood of the river Ouse, and the New Country, as well as along the River Nile and the West Tamir, much feiic.usr, and several farms have b.-cn destroyed. O.i one run alone twenty four miles of fencing, were completely consumed. Several of the tele- graph posts, in what is called the Epp'u.g Forest, have been con timed, and sln.'e lu paired, but the efficiency c1 the ti egrapl. was not impaired, Hie wires being unbroken. So.ne of the crops have suffered for the wau of rain, particularly fruit, potatoes and wheat. The spell has however, at last been 1 roken. ni.d the wilco.ue rain lins fallen, wi'hout, as, in sometimes the case, occasioning any seriuu. fl ,ods. j The accounts from the Fingal Gold Dig- gings are much of the same character, a.« th y hive been furn lung while past...

THE MERCURY [PUBLISHED DAILY.] WEDNESDAY, FEB. 10, 1858. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 10 February 1858

THE MERCURY ffanntsiiED datjjY.1 WEDNESDAY, FEB. 10, 18ÓS. Atvruouair. there lias been nothing very extraordinary happening in Tasmanian history since our lost Summary, there is abundant cause for congratulation and for satisfaction. Some causes for anxiety which lately existed have wholly disap- peared ; some hopes have been realised j some fears have proved either groundless or'grossly exaggerated. For some time past much apprehen- sion with respect to the position and prospects of the colony did certainly obtain in the minds of all men. Even those the least apt to bo misled by alarmists were perplexed by the general ' presentiments of coming mischief. However distressing in itself this stale of tilings might be,it wasaggravatedintense ly by the turgidity ol our political atmos plíere. ¡ The advent of responsible Go- vernment, coveted .so long as sure to prove so great a boon,scemed only to have let slip " the dogs of war." With the foundations of a national debt already laid, a f...

HOBART TOWN WATER WORKS [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 10 February 1858

HOBART TOWN WATER WORKS Tin: first advance towards supplying Hie inhabi- tants of Hobart Tonn with water, was during tho year 1831. The system adopted was a brick tunnel or aqueduct and small drains leading from the tunnel into cisterns built ia the ground. About i ho same time, in order to increase the supply, a large spring on Mount Wollingtrn was diverted from its original course to Brown's I'iver.imd turned into tho Hobart Town rivulet. The course through which this ¿pring was con- veyed has since been lengthened, and several otiicr springs opened into ft, forming a water course of the most delicious puro spring water about li miles in length, and at an elevation of nearly eighteen hundred feet above the level of the sea. The springs now form the principal source of supply to tho city, the add lionnl quantity being obtained from the Hobart Town and Guy Faux rivulet. Tho system of supplying the bouses by means o" an aqueduct wasof course very unsatisfactory and impracticable and ...

SUBURBS OF HOBART TOWN. BATTERY POINT—WELLINGTON HAMLETS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 10 February 1858

SUBURBS OF HOBART TOWN. BATTERY POINT - WELLINGTON HAMLETS. A person standing on the summit of Knock- lofty, and gazing over our capital will perceive a scene of great interest and beauty. * The "fair city " is before him with all its prominent points of observation ¡ and the Derwent in all its gran- deur, in the distance ; the shipping in our fine harbour forms no inconsiderable object of inter- est, as indicative of the trade and. commerce of our port. But it is not with the city we have now to do;-our brief remarks having refererence to its suburbs ; and of these,the most noticeable are Battery Point and the Wellington Hamlets in and adjoining the Cascade Road. Those who have been in the colony long enough to remember the former condition of Battery Point may now be well surprised at the vast extent of the improvements which have been effected in that locality. The "old hands" can recollect what were called " Kelly's Fields " now covered with houses, commencing at Kelly Street an...

THE ELECTRIC TELEGRAPH. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 10 February 1858

THE ELECTRIC TELEGRAPH. Is addition to great natural resources,Tasmania can boast of those scientific appliances which tend so much to advance the happiness and pros perity of a country,and foremost amongst which may be reckoned the Electric Telegraph. On the 16h January, 1857, the first post was erected at Launceston; by the 1st July, the line was completed to Hobart Town, a distance of 124 miles; and on the 9th of the same month the first telegraphic message flew along the   electric wire with the speed of lightning, telling the inhabitants of the two cities that science had triumphed over the distance, and that hence- forward, although miles of country intervene, yet for the purpose of social and commercial communications Hobart Town and Launceston might be regarded as one city. The main telegraph line consists of a single wire supported on posts at a distance of 20 feet from the ground and insulated from the earth by means of earthenware insulators. According to thi...

LABOUR MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 10 February 1858

LABOUR MARKET. We publish below a statement shewing the   current rates of wages for domestic servants, mech- anics, and farm labourers, at present prevailing in the colony. Considerable pains have been taken in its compilation, and we believe that the rates quoted will be found accurate. Domestic servants and farm labourers can find constant and remu- nerative employment. In fact, really good domestic servants of sober, steady habits need never be out of situations. The same remarks   will apply to farm labourers of all descriptions. The rate of wages for mechanics will be found below. Tailors are not wanted, those in Town   being only half employed. Clerks and parties not used to pastoral or agricultural pursuits we   do not recommend to venture to this colony without some means or connections, such class being in excess of the demand:   Town.          ...

INSOLVENT COURT—WEDNESDAY. (Before Mr. Commissioner Browne.) IN RE SAUL SOLOMON. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 11 February 1858

INSOLVENT COüfiT-Wtuîfïsiuif. (Bcfofe Mr. CominUsiö!i3r Browne.) IN HE SAUL EODOJIOK. The Commissioner gave judgment in this case.. Insolvent had been opposed on the ground of contracting debts without having a reasonable expectation of being able to ¡«y the fame ; and of wilfully diäsipatiag his means to the injury of his creditors. After going through the evidence given by Insolvent, the Commissioner stated, that he be- lieved the grounds of opposition to bs sustained. The transactio-i with Messrs. Watchorn and Perkins appeared to him very much like an attempt to raise the wind, and shewed most unwarrantable conduct on the part of the Insolvent. Such conduct could not be passed over, and he (the Commissioner) felt himself called upon to give judgment that the discharge be postponed for two calendar months and that Insolvent be imprisoned during that period. Insolvent was then removed in cus- tody. IS RE GEOBGB KEW First meeting of creditors. Mr. M'Minn appeared to support Insolven...

It is true the wild teaching* of the Mormon prophets, and the inllam-' mutory pub!¡cations and publie speeches of Young, Kimbad, and Taylor, have wrought their misguided followers into a frenzy of resistance to the constitution- al authorities, which, at first; sight,, coupled with tho courage generally tis- ' soc abed with religious lanaticism, would! l.-nrt to tho belief that the attempt of Colonel Johnson to enter tho Mormon territories would meet a determined armed opposition.
