WHO IS A TRAVELLER? [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 5 January 1858
WHO IS A TRAVELLER ? We are \cry much gratified to find that a large majority of the Justices, assem- bled in Quarter Sessions yesteidaj", has endorsed the views expressed by this journal with reference to the meaning of. " Traveller" in the Licensed Victuallers' Act. It was well argued that, in all Acts in which penalties were inflicte'l, the wording of the clauses was invari- ably to bo construed literally ; and, this being once admitted, it became evident, tint, to contine the application of the word to thoso only who went a given number of milos from their own resi- dence, or to give an enlarged, if not a forced, moaning to the words " lona fide on a journey" would bo to overstep this principle of the law. A man leaving his own home, and travelling to any dis- tance-no matter if his journey be one of pleasure or of business-is, as we have all along maintained, a lona fide travel- ler, in the strict acceptation of that term. A citizen going to Kangaroo Point on a Sunday for pleas...

DIED. On the 3rd January instant, at Her Majesty's General Hospital, Mr. George William Moffatt. This gentleman is deservedly regretted by a numerous circle of friend, and was much respected by the 99th Regiment in which corps he served for a period of 14 years. He was engaged by Colonel Despard as Brigade Clerk during the New Zealand Campaign, where, having volunteered for a forlorn hope, after fighting with great bravery and saving the present Colonel McPherson from death, he was the only man who returned go tell the tale of that well contested but disastrous assault. He was humane, generous, and high principlcd, and it is to be lamented that his premature death should have been, &nbsp; hastened by circumstances of a domestic nature.
THE QUARTER'S REVENUE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 6 January 1858
THE QUARTER'S REVENUE. The returns of the revenue made up to the äOth of Septembür,present a very "st favourable view of the resources of tim iko cointry, both as regards the quarter just ended and the completed year. Of coarse there is a diminution in the actual f" raeipts arising from the repeal of war tites, but it is satisfactory to find that tip decrease is not so great as was itj efimated. The returns for the quarter llfi slow a greiter proportionate diminution ian on the year, because on that portion I the year th¿ reduction of the inco ne nd property tax came into operation, he total decrease on the quarter being eS89jl60, whilst on the whole year jj* here U only a decrease of £169,4011. ," The reduction of income and property lyj'ax accounts for nearly half the defici 'd.hncy on the quarto", and the Custo.ns l!sjexliiliit a falling off of £500,000, of ° which £300,000 is on sugar alone.
