THE MERCURY. ISuWîsïjcÏi fEtoribaij, Cî&cïmESoan if Jtíuaa FRIDAY MORNING. MARCH 27, 1857. Afteh great promise of great things by the New Ministry, tho line of policy to be pursued was enunciated on Wednesday afternoon by the Premier in the House of Assombly. We were led, from previous boasting, to expect much at tho hands of the Administration, no less by the high tone used by the leading Members of the former opposition, but from the reports which were circulated of the deeds to bo dono for tho regeneration and welfare of the Colony. The explanation of tho Premier, and the official Minute, which was laid before the Parliament are now before the Public, who, with ourselves, will be unable to derivo consolation or hope from either. The scheme itself, if carefully examined,and closely scrutinized will be found to amount to little beyond the verbosity, in which it is couched. With one or too impracticable ex- ceptions, it enunciates no new policy,-cer- tainly, no policy calcul...

TO THE PUBLIC. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 30 March 1857
THE current Quarter is drawing to a close, 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, 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. We would, therefore, remind those -who may wish to become Subscribers in future, that the present quarter ter...

He wished, also, to explain an error, which had oc. curred, with respect to the eligibility ot the Solici- tors of the Colony to the office of Attorney General: it appeared that every Solicitor, duly admitted in the Supreme Court, was eligible to that office, and ' he begged, now, to offer this explanation. On the motion of Mr. Wedge, the Colonial Secretary's letter was read by the Clerk, and or-( dercd to be printed. DEFICIENCY IN THE REVENUE. ...

THE MERCURY. $uultsíjrti fHfltrtiíia» vJUclnusBng fctfrftmo MONDAY MORNING. MARCH SO, 1857. Tice debate in the House of Assembly on Friday night has proved to demonstration) that the preseub Ministry do not possess its confidence, and that it will be ut terly impos- sible for them to carry on the Government of the country. It is deeply to be regretted that this state of things should exist in the piesent critical condition of the colony, when', more than at any time, it requires à pilot able to " weather the storm." The debate, which was prolonged till pnsb one o'clock in the morning, was ohaiaeterized by a display of much acrimonious personality on both sides, and it is greatly to be lamented, that so much hindrance' should be made to the important public business, which calls so urgently for arrangement and completion, and that so much time should be occupied in personal contest. Tho analyzation of the Ministerial Memo- randum by Mr Chapman fully exposed its want of originality ou...

ADELAIDE. Our Adelaide advices are to the 23th, and ap- pended is the latest mercantile report : "Notwithstanding the continued arrival of news from Melbourne and Sydney of declining markets for flour, a large business has been done here the last few days, at prices almost as high as those ruling there. Shipments have almost stopped, and snell a general fixed determination ti) hold for higher rates has never before been exhibited on so large a scale in this place. - Flour has rallied fully £1 per ton, and at the qiiatations few are willing to sell any quantity. With the exception of some" large transactions in stored wheat, but little is doing i i purchases by delivery from farmers, and prices are very firm , with a tendency to advance. "I note that oer exports of wheat and flour have fallen offconsiilcrnbly during the list fortnight, and very little is in course of shipment u In - oats and barley the transactions are small.

OUR NEW MINISTER AT WASHINGTON. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 30 March 1857
OUR NEW MINISTER AT " WASHINGTON. , ,¿ , The choice of tho British representative in .. the states has too often been unfortunate. The mission to Washington should be regard-. , ed as a most important otic, a post which re-, quires the presence of a very considerable man, or it should be altogether suppressed. ? , We have hitherto dealt with it, practically, " as one of the second order, or as even lower, in the scale of diplomatic dignities. But,.' surely, permanent friendship and alliance'' between Great Britain and the United States * of North America arc, to say the least, as im- portant as similar relations between this country and any continental power. The -. existence of that great confederation of re publican states which is spreading so rapidly'."i over the North American continent adds '?'? enormously to the authority willi which Eng« ' * land can intervene in favour of liberty in ;.'.'

THEATRE ROYAL [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 30 March 1857
THEATRE ROtfAL The appearance of Mr. Mc.Kean Buchanan is announced for this evening in conjunction with Mr H.N. Warner, who, we are glad to state, has sufficiently recovered from his indisposition to re- sume his avocations to the delight of a Tasmanian audience. The play selected for the occasion is Shakspeare's Othello; in which Mr Buchanan will personate the noble Moor, and Mr Warner the wily Ingo. From this " keen encounter of their wits" we anticipate a gratification of no ordinary description : the tragedy itself is a fine poetical conception, and furnishes appliances and means for some splendid acting, which no doubt, we shall enjoy ; and as this is the first opportunity which has been afforded the publsc to see both performers in characters suited to their respective talent,an unusual anxiety will prevail amongst the lovers of the drama, to witness a performance, .which cannot fail to prove attractive. The piece is jotlierwise well cast, Miss Glyndon will render the gentle D...
SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 30 March 1857
SYDNEY. We have Sydney dates to Satmday, and the Herald of that morning contains the folio a ing re- sume of the week's operations : " The amount of gold coin paid by the Sydney branch of the Royal Mint during the week ended the 20th March lias been 20,000 half-sovereigns. "The amount of gold-dust imported into the same establishment, for the purpose of coinage, during the week, has been 1909 ounces. Of this quantity 618 ounces were received fi oin the Rocky River Diggings. » . "Government debentures, for twenty years, bear- ing five per cent interest, are not to be had except at a premium of more than one per cant ; the mar- ket having, as we anticipated, been cleared of them as well &lt;is the Railway debentures for remittance to Eüglnud. The tenders that were accepted this week by the Government, for the New or Interminable debentures, amounted to £61,200, and the prices were ns follows :-£60,000 at 98}, £200 at 99,ond £1000 at 100.

COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE. VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 30 March 1857
COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE. VICTORIA. The following is from the Herald of the 25th. We have not had to comment, for some time, on such total inaction as that which marked the &lt; ourse of business to-day. The prevailing dullness extend» ed to every branch of commerce ; and lew opera- tions of sufficient importance to iniluencequotations took place. Flour has not again receded ; and the present firmness appears to be well maintained. Oats, in spite of sundry arrivals, command the high rates at which they have ruled of late; and in maize there is no very evident tendency towards .a serious fall. Bran-'cbntinu.es in a fair request at aboye 2s. 2d.. In the Provision market there is scarcely any- thing doing.
