The Mercury; TOWN EDITION. HOBART TOWN: WEDNESDAY. OCTOBER 18TH, 1854. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 18 October 1854

ÜÜ* m<mmf' T0W2Ï EDITION. HOBART TOWN: WEDNESDAY. OCTOBER 10TH, 1SG4. WJB have seen in the course of our exa- mination that the Upper House, as pro- posed by the Constitution Committee, will bear no analogy whatever either in form or derivation to the House of Lords* We shall find their House of Assemhy, when Compared with the English House of Commons, in no better predicament. In the exposition of their views, which is embodied in their report, they state their object in the construction of the House of Assembly to be, that it shall " represent the great mass of the people, whatever their occupations or interests." The Legislative Council they leave chiefly to " represent property." By implication, therefore, property is a subject of the least consideration, whether in the construction or election of the lower house ; and this implication is borne out by the fact that a merely ' nominal qualification is required both from the electors and the elected. Now, in the first p...

THE CAMPBELL TOWN ADDRESS. IN our,Saturday's issue we published an address to be presented to his Ex- cellency that morning, by a deputation appointed for the purpose.

A few short months,, ago we had the far more congenial duty of sharing in the public, and general, and cordial welcome with which she was greeted on her arrival amongst us, and of recording the hearty enthusiasm and gen . erous sympathy of all classes of our fellow citizens towards her. We knew her then only as the wife of the gifted and exiled Meagher- as one who shared his lonely exile, and who created around him the sweet endearments of home in the wilderness to which British law consigned him. She has since since lived nmongst us sand we have witnesed the gentle innocence and sweetness of her character, that endeared her to all who had the happiness of knowing her, and ...

VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 18 October 1854

VICTORIA. THE news from Port Phillip is of a most melancholy character. Insolvencies are of hourly occurrence, and the panic of M2 is finding its fellow. The Argus has gone clean demented at the fate of the " Convicts' Prevention Act." It wri thes and foams with ridiculous pomposity, and reminds us of the " Moun- tain in labor." We subjoin as a specimen one or two extracts from a leading article printed in that journal of the llth inst. : " It appears that we were only too cor- rect in our suggestion of the difficulty which was likely soon to present itself between our new Governor and the public. We have felt ail along that the Convicts' Prevention Act was probably doomed to be a stumbling-block in his path, and this opinion has been confirmed by very ugly rumours which have lately been rife here, as to the tyrannical and unconstitutional course adopted in Downing-street with reference to that measure. "Our worst fears upon the question seem now or. the point of being reulized. It ...

SUPREME COURT. CRIMINAL SITTINGS. (Before His Honor Mr. Justice Horne.) TUESDAY, 17TH OCT., 1854. This court opened at 10 o'clock this morning, when George M'Ewan, tried for stealing a blanket and sundry pieces of cotton, the property of Elijah Panton, was found guilty and sentenced to three years imprisonment and hard labour.

The Attorney General called Constable Jarvis, who deposed that, from information he received, he went to a dungheap at the back of the Red Lion public-house, between Goulbum street and Liverpool-street ; in that dung heap found the body of a male child ; the child murdered. This witness then detailed the circumstances, which have been alteady before the public-the ap- prehension of the prisoner, and the con- veyance of her and the body of the child to the hospital. Jane Parkes proved the extraction of the body from the dungheap by Constable Jarvis. Edward Scandrick deposed to his knowledge of the f...

SORELL Steam Communication with Hobart. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 18 October 1854

SORELL Steam Communication with Hobart. A MEETING was held at the Gordon High- lander, Sorell, on the 13th inst. for the purpose of considering the best means of establishing steam communication with Hobart Town. There was a good attend- ance of the inhabitants of Pittwater and the neighbouring districts, and several other gentlemen from town, shewing the great interest that was excited in the suc-   cess of the undertaking, although the at- traction of the Midland Steeple Chase caused the absence of many residents in the district who had be spoken shares in the projected company, as well also as many persons of influence from Hobart Town who had intended being present. Mr Wm. Hodges having been voted to the chair, it was proposed by Mr. Thomas Paterson " That a Company be established to be called the Sorell Steam Navigation Company with a capital of £ 10,000 in Shares of £ 10 each, and that a vessel of suitable speed, power, and carrying capa- cities, he purchased as s...

Local Intelligence [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 18 October 1854

Local Intelligence THE MONARCH'S EXCURSION to New Norfolk on Wednesday was the most complete acquatic affair that has taken place in this colony. The eutire arrangements were faultless, and the liberality of the spirited owners the universal theme of praise. The morning was most propitious, the and shone in refulgent glory, whilst the soft breathings of the westerly breeze,     kept the waters of the Derwent in playful motion as though rejoicing at the event. Shortly after nine o'clock the Monarch started, with a crowded and fashionable array of holiday makers, the " sweet sounds'^ of the German band adding to the general interest of the occasion. The Monarch swept along with a velocity that was truly astonishing, putting in the shade those brilliant exploits of the hitherto considered "crack" Culloden. On passing the Marine Villa of Mr Cleburne a salute of 11 guns was fired, and responded to by "cheers" from on board-all was happiness, indeed there was " S...
