SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 25 October 1854

SYDNEY. The tenor of our advices are_not encour- aging. The commercial article of the Herald reports as follows : Friday Evening, October 13. This has been one of those dull, inactive weeks, which without any substantial reason, we occasionally experience at this period of the year. In this instance, how- ever, there may have been one or two cir- cumstances to justify caution ; though none, we believe to occasion alarm. The rumour, for example, of a small failure, coupled with the probable embarrassment of one or two Melbourne houses, are cir- cumstances calculated to create some little uneasiness ; though we do not think them likely to occasion serious inconvenience ; indeed in both cities there is no doubt there must, from the long continued de- pression, he borne few cases of insolvency, and where it is impossible to avert it, the .sonner declaration to such effect he made the better That the cases will be few and unimportant is now, we believe, pretty satisfactorily ascertained....

PUBLIC MEETING ON THE NER LICENSING ACT. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 25 October 1854

public Meeting on the "new licensing act. ! We call the attention of our readers to the public meeting to be held this day at lhe New MarJet Placo, to consider the op. prcssive ano arbitrary nature of the prin - i-ipal provisions of the New Licensing Act. If the apathy that has hitherto prevailed on this subject v»eie to'he continued, an op- portunity would be afforded to fix a pre- cedent of sacrificing the vested interests of any class by ictrosppctive enactments, under pretence of the general good. Now all retrospective laws are essentially vicious and unjust, whatever mav be their bubjec^ . No one can deny that the main operation of this Bill is not only retrospective hut indiscriminate, and the result must be op pressive and unjust. We trust that not only those immediately affected, hut the general body of the public, who, as we have show«, are also intqret,ted, will combine to prevent so arbitrary and unconstitutional a measure from passing into a law.
