COMMERCIAL MORALITY. (From Mitchell's Maritime Register.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 9 February 1857

COMMERCIAL MORALITY*. (From Mitchell's Maritime Register.) The year towards the close-of which wo arc fast advancing nfT.irds some irf the most striking examples of delinquency and dclus iniij of deliberate fraud, atidof unsound spe- culation, t of n hielt we have any record in the Commercial annals of this country. The future philosophic historian will perhaps employ himself in tracing effects to their causes, and will probably refer such events nr the opportunities supplied to the knave, to the adventurer by the vast results of trade, and the de nands of a multitudinous and wealthy population. It is to great cities and to' dense communities that the unprincipled anti lfie itííe resort to use the wits, at tho expense of the'propel ty and persons of those they chance to n/eef, and to help themselves to a livelihood out of the industry of the hon- est.

NIXON'S TRIAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 9 February 1857

NIXON'S TBIAL. Tuts investigation, distinguished as was the atrocity of the circumstances which it disclosed, has been still more marked by the firmness ami, indeed, judical chaiacter of the proceed- ings. We are not paying too high a compli- ment to the Attorney General, when we r.ay that the best security of the accused'was the candour and honest anxiety of his prosecutor. Of the justice of the verdict there can be no reasonable doubt, and we are glad that the lime which has elapsed since the offence was committed, allowed men's minda to calm down to the necessary tone for its' dispassionate ex- amination. The unjuHt and, even, childish in- vective and outcry of a portion of the Press, which disgraced itself by its conduct on thal occasion, elicited,'and with justice, the stern condemnation of the Bench and .Bar; and, we trust, that wheu the ¡Courier agaiu - feels in- clined to recommend n departure from every principle of social and legal propriety, it will recollect the censures...

COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE. CITY ARTICLE. _ Mercury Oillce, Saturday Even ncr. Another weck of dulñcss in'trade has pas-ed by, leaving us little to comment upon. The oppressive new Tariff still operates in the most baneful manner, detering parties from pushing sales from the uncer- tainty of the existence of the augmented duties; this difficulty will, however, be probably removed, on the re-assembling of the Parliament, this week, 'and the uncertainty, on this point, will be, at all «vents, set at rest. In the meantime, we may re- mark, that in refeicnce to duties, that have been "paid" under protest " the additional sums will,we understand, be refunded, should the order in Council be lesciiided, Breadstuff have again declined a trifle, altlio' no new .wheat has, as yet, reached the market ; the importations, ho ive ver, alluded to in our laut, with some an ¡vals of old grain have had a manifest ten- dency to this effect.
