TO THE PUBLIC. THE HOBART TOWN MERCURY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 3 April 1857

TO THE PUBLIC. THE HOBART TOWN MERCURY. WE may proudly and confidently invite a comparison of this Journal with any and all of our Contemporaries. It contain*, although published only thrice a week, quadruple the amount of matter, the earliest, most correct, and most varied intelligence, Foreign and Domestic, while its Circulation is three to one of some, and more than two to one of all, thus affording the most extended and advantageous medium for the announcements of our Advertising friends. Progressing as it does, we may safely predict, that in twelve months more, the " MERCURY" will attain the comparative position in this Colony, which the Great London "TIMES" maintains in England: we can assure our numerous Subscribers and the Public, also, that no exertion on our part shall be wanting to render it, in every respect, worthy of their patronage and commendation. We would, therefore, remind those who may wish to become Subscribers in future, that '? the present quarter commences th...

MISCELLANEOUS SHIPPING. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 3 April 1857

MISCELLANEOUS SHIPPING REMARKABLE ESCAPE AT SEA.-A letter re- ceived at Liverpool announces the total loss of the brig Ritson, of Maryport, which left Liverpool for Barbadoes on the 25th ultimo, with a general cargo. The Dutch galliot Lucretia, arrived at Falmouth from Marseilles, having on board Cap- tain Colzier and the crew ' (excepting the second mate, who was drowned) of the brig Kitson, which vessel foundered on the 15th,instant. The damage was done in latitude 45 44 N.', longitude 10 44 W. Captain Colzier went dowii» with the vessel to a great depth, and was on her when she blew up, with tremendous force, but he rose again and was saved by a spar which carne up from the bottom with extreme velocity to as to rise about forty-five feet above the surface of the sea. The Amy Good- win, bound for Malta, fell in with the Ritson, be- fore she foundered, and lay by her until the Lu- cretia came up and took off her crew. The Ritson was built in Maryport in 1828.-Liverpool Albion. Dece...

THE UNITED DEFALCATION, GAROTTE, AND GENERAL APPRO PRIATION COMPANY (LIMITED.) (From the Leader.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 3 April 1857

THE UNITED DEFALCATION, GA BOTTE, AND GENERAL APPRO PRIATION COMPANY (LIMITED.) (From the Leader.) EXTENSIVEIY as the principle of joint-stock association had been applied, its crowning triumph was still wanting. One branch of business had been strangely neglected. It seems, however, that the neglect was more apparent than real. Our readers will under- stand that we allude to the field of commerce in which Redpath, Robson, Villiers, Cole and others, can scarcely be called pioneers, since they were only following, in happier times, the example set them by earlier men \ and they have not struck out that idea which would give perfection to tho system. Even the genius of Joseph Windle Cole, which we are far from underrating1, failed to hit upon that crowning measure ; yet be seemed on the very threshold. Indeed, we are not sure that the merit of the suggestion can be completely denied to him ; but it almost always turns out in the case of a new invention that it is claimed formanyinvent...

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 3 April 1857

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. A NOVEL CELEBRATION,—During the past week handbills have been circulated in the town of Braintree, headed "Reward to the Re-   formed" and stating that a " moke," commonly called a donkey, would be presented to Henry Ogan by the landlord of the Bird in Hand Inn, for the performance of a promise not to swear or use any profane language for the term of six months. The ceremony of presentation was to be similar to the celebrated Dunmow Flitch, and that a procession would start from the above inn on Monday the 24th. The procession formed accordingly, which consisted of a cart (in which was placed the donkey with five or six juveniles to take care of it) drawn by six donkeys, each mounted by a boy. The pro- cession was headed by a pair of horses and a van decorated with evergreens and a flag, containing a brass band and the hero of the day. They pro- ceeded through the principal streets accompanied by a large number of the rising generation of Braintree a...

THE MERCURY. PubltafteH MotiOnz, IKHWmeatrap. Ä JttUao FRIDA Y MORNING, APRIL, 31857. A more important motion than that of Mr. Inné s and which, is to como on for discussion in the Ho use of Assembly tliis-evening never came before the House of Assembly. The Government organ affects to treat it as " ab- surd'* " ridiculous Soo" and intimates pretty clearly, that it will be disposed of or " rejected" by the House, inasmuch m it is an implied censure on the Speaker, and renews discussion upon subjects already decided. We shall see. Our sage contemporary may be undeceived by the results of the debate of this evening and find to his mortification, and the humilia- tion of the party which bas adopted and hired him os a terrifying element, in the system about to be vigorously assailed, that the reign of terror will be no longer tolerated either in- side or outside the walls of the Legislature. Mr. Innes will havo earned for himself the thanks of every independent man in the Colony if he s...
