THE TERRIBLE TEMPEST. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 27 March 1857

THE TERRIBLE TEMPEST. The EnplÍFl» coast hail been visited with severe gales. The Maritime Register of the 10th January contains the following : It is happily not often that it becomes our duly to lay before our readers so appalling a storm narrative as is embraced in our list of casualties for the past week. In that sad catalogue is to be found almost every variety of disaster to which the mariner is exposed, and against which no amount of fore sight, self reliance,or daring can at all times protect bim. His fancied control over the elements is liable at any moment to be success- fully disputed, and the hoarse breath of the tempest mocks as it boars him onwards to swift destruction. The dark cloud and the sea-bird may be the only witnessos of his death-struggle, or he may be watched in his mortal conflict with the powers of nature by crowds of humane and terror-stricken spectators, and saved perchance in his desperate extremity by an effort almost supernatural, com- manding not onl...

VICTORIA From the Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 27 March 1857

VICTORIA From the Argus. Brcadstufis, &c.-The flour market has been maintained through the week, from the fact that stocks tiave been in few hands. There have beat no forced sales from the ship, and holders of en best brands of Adelaide have realisedas muchlhe £16. per ton to the trade. There have not bas any wholesale transactions. Prices in Adelaide are low, and are not likely to improve, as no other outlet for the late harvest can be found. Advices from Chili, to the middle of Novcinbet, speak of prices as showing no disposition to fall there ; flour being.quoted at 101 dollars per 200 lbs, at that date. The towu mills are grinding only sufficient for im- mediate use. There is no prospect of any advance at present iii this market, and if the present relations between supply and consumption be maintained, none of a decline.

THE PEEMIER'S SALARY SECUEBD [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 27 March 1857

THE PEEMIEIi'S SALAEY SECUEBD Last night in the House of Assembly the ? new Ministry "suffered" a mock defeat; whilst; our predictions, with reference to the acceptance of a Salary by the Premier, have beeu fully verified. . On the day immediately succeeding the an- nouncement of the present Ministry Mr Innes-who had been selected by his friend Mr Gregson to take a part in the burlesque, -brought on again the notice of Motion which had been on a former occasion so wisely withdrawn. The role allotted to Mr Innes was most effectively sustained-he maintai- ned admirably the semblance of opposition, and descanted most learnedly on the violence which would he done both to the letter and spirit of the Constitutional Act, weie Mr. Gregson obstinately to peisist in his modest disinclination to take any remuneration for his services. Mr. Smith-ignorant of the " move" then on the board-generously moved the previous question, feeling convinced, that if the motion was put the Ministers would be...

TO THE PUBLIC. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 27 March 1857

TO THE PUBLIC. THE current Quarter is drawing to a close, and we may proudly and confidently invite a comparison of thi» Journal with any and all of our Contemporaries. It contains, although published only thrice a week, quadruple the amount of matter, the earliest, most 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 " MERCURY" 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.

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 27 March 1857

MISCELLANEOUS. Revolutionary Influence of the French Philosopheksofthe 18tii Century. -As for the political systems of these writers, they varied so greatly one from the other that any attempt to reconcile them or to form any one theory of government out of them, would be an impracticable task. Nevertheless, by discarding matters of detail, so as to get at the first leading ideas, it may be easily discov- ered that the authors of these different systems agreed at least in one very general ' notion, which all of them seem to have alike conceived, and which appears to have pre-existed in their minds before all their peculiar ideas, and to ha ve been their common fountain-head. How- ever widely they may have diverged in the rest of their course, they all started from this point. They all agreed that it was expedient to substitute simple and elementary rules de- duced from reason and natural law, for the complicated traditional customs which govern- ed the society of their time. Upon a ...
