VALEDICTORY LETTER OF MR JOHN MARTIN. Hobart Town, 12th July, 1854. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 15 July 1854

VALEDICTORY LETTER OF MR JOHN MARTIN. Hobart Town, 12th July, 1854 My Dear -, Though sensible that there is very little in either my pesonal or political character to occupy the attention of     the Tasmanian public, and though I have no taste for notoriety, yet there are considerations   which make me desirous to publish     some expression of my sentiments, in     addition to that given by my friend Mr.O'Brien   , in his replies' to the Hobart Town and Launceston Addresses. Therefore, as   I am unaquainted with any editor of a   newspaper in this country, 1 request you to.   get this letter inserted in the Mercury, the Courier, or the Colonial Times¡ and perhaps the editors of other papers will do me the courtesy to copy it. When, four years and nine months ago, 1 was brought to the Australian shores, I never doubted but that the colonists (except   some ot the Irish) would rega...

THE COMING SESSIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 15 July 1854

THE COMING SESSIONS. A s the next sitting of Council is drawing near, we conceive it to be a duty we owe to the various constituencies throughout the colony, to offer a word on the great subject that will engage the attention of the Council for some time ; and that is extension of the franchise. We do not offer out own sentiment, but that of nine tenths of the elective body, when we say that if V. D. Land is to progress, and to clothe itself with prosperity, if the Legislative Council is to possess itself of the confidence of the people-then must the subject ot extension of the Council not be passed over with that sang froid which at present, is apparently enter- tained with respect to it, but must meet with that open, candid, and serious in- vestigation and attention, as a matter oí its importance demands. The Coming Session will usher in the New Constitution ; then what is the honest duty of those membors who now hold seats in the House, and who are supposed to represent the opini...

WILL OP PETER THE GREAT. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 15 July 1854

WILL OF PETER THE GREAT. At a time when the secret designs and ambition of Russia have become an object of the deepest consideration and intense interest to most European Ca- binets, it may not be uninteresting to lay before our readers the will of the Czar Peter the Great. The authenticity of this document has been often called in question ; but there is one paramount proof of its truth and authenticity in its entire agreement with the policy which has been followed up by Russia for more than a century past. We therefore subjoin the following extracts, which embody the chief outlines of this remarkable document : THE WILL OF THE CZAR PETER THE GREAT "In the name of tho Holy Indivisible Trinity, we Peter I., to all successors greet- ing, etc. The great God, who always en-   lightened us by his divine wisdom, allows me now to behold in the Russian nation the people chosen to govern the whole of Eu- rope.

CAPE OP GOOD HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 15 July 1854

CAPE OP GOOD HOPE. Naval.-Coal-In searching for gold we hear that Mr. Fannin bus come upon a seam of Coal, which bids fair to he a valuable discovery. Gold.-We are'informed that Mr. Fan- nin on his farm, the " Dargel," not far from Maritzburg, has certainly discovered particles of Gold under conditions that justify a considerable amount of confidence as to its more extensiyean abundant pres- ence. Mr Fannin is not a mere neophyte in mineralógica! researches, but years ago was, we believe, engaged on or near the site of the Copper mines in Nainacquland, to one of which he gave is name, which it still hears. This circumstance gives grater confidence or at least credibility to the gent- leman's statement. Copper and Limestonk.-Dr, Suther- land, F R G.

Mr. Davies having been called to the chair said, he was proud to find that the Licensed Victuallers by their large attend- ance seemed fully alive to the important subject for consideration, because although there were many present who could not be in the most remote manner effected by the proposed measure of reformation, it became their bounden duty to step forward and by legitimate and constitutional means protect their weaker brethern from oppression and injustice; by this, he (the chairman) did not ntend to infer that the magistracy wo...

Opinious at the Press. RUSSIAN AGGRESSIONS. (From the Daily News) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 15 July 1854

Opinions at the Press RUSSIAN AGGRESSIONS. (From the Daily News )   France and England have declared two   things-that they have no more hope of peace, and that they have no selfish objects in view in this struggle- no in- tention whatever of seeking a foot of territory for either kingdom. We need make no professions or protestations on this head on behalf of England. We want no continental territory, and have not wanted any for centuries. We have never missed Hanover, except to be glad that it is gone. What we should desire, if we were looking in a self- interested way at the whole case, would be, so firm an establishment of the independance of all the countries on the European frontier of Russia as would give a fair chance to free trade; but that is all. But there are others to be considered, separate peoples, and Europe at large. Their wide-spreading and vital interests seem to require a broad, steady, and solemn air on the part of those who go into this...
