FINGAL GOLD FIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 8 April 1857
FINGAL GOLD FIELDS. Nuwnen of persons engaged during the week 19. Amount of gold obtained 8J ounces. The heavy and continued rain which fell in the early part of the week prevented the parties from workingjand has also offered interruption from hav- ing raised the creek. The quantity of gold found in the vicinity of the Nook during the past 12 months must be of nearly if not more than the value of £1000; and } et it has boen raised from an area not exceeding one mile iu extent along the side of Major's creek, for the poition obtained in its vicinity or Peter's creek was not considerable. This fact proves that not only there is gold in liberal quantity near the affluents of the South Esk River, and that suitable means and appliances in materials and men arc alone wanting to find the gold in such quantity as to be limply remunerative, but suggests the proba- bility that the gold now found in the vicinity of Launceston on the bank of the South Esk has its source in the afducnts of the ...
DUNROBIN BRIDGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 8 April 1857
DUNROBIN BRIDGE. This bridge is now so far completed that horses and carts can cross it. "Denison's Folly" will &nbsp; be one of the finest and most useful bridges in Tasmania, leading as it does to the beautiful and rich valley of the Florentine, which in the course of a very few years will rival St. Paul's Plains in its Dairies. The road to Dunrobin passes through one of the finest and worst-managed Estates in the Island, belonging to an Absentee proprietor. PAINFUL FACT. The Returning Officer of the Cumberland Electoral District informs us that he has had to remove the names of only seven persons from the Roll, as having died within the last six months, and on six of these persons he has sat as Coroner, their deaths having been sudden or violent.

MAURITIUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 8 April 1857
MAURITIUS. By the Cantero we have papers from the Mauri- tius to the 7tb February. The chief news relates to the interdict laid upon the immigration of Coo- lies from the East Indies to Port Louis, which had dieted strong marks of dissatisfaction. A planter from the island bad been collecting Coolies at Madras, and had intercepted their departure for the West Indies- The emigration agenta at Port Louis had protested against this proceeding, and Mr. Labouchere had, in consequence, addressed the following despatch to the authorities at the i Mauritius : It is impossible for. me to allow a competition so mischievous to all British interests concerned, and I trust to the Mauritius Government for taking the necessary steps for putting an end to it. If this be found impracticable, it will be necessary to prohibit absolutely nil immigration to Mauritius during the half year allotted to the West Indies, from Septem- ber to March inclusively; or to take some other effectual measures for secu...

THE MERCURY. Publíslieg íHontan, fflHrtiitesoau & jjtioao WEDNESDAY MORNING, APRIL, 8 1857. A very serious difficulty has arisen by tho re- fusal of tho Legislative Council to pass several of tho votes in the Estimates, nor can wo seo clearly how it is to bo overcome. Our readers are aware that that body put forth a claim to tho right of dealing with the Estimates item by item, after they had passed through the fiery ordeal of the House of Assembly, and that tho Council grounded that olaiin upon tho ambigui ty of the Constitutional Act. That Act provides that all Money Bills' shall be initiated in the Lower House only ; whilst it maintains a deep, and somewhat portentous silence as to thoir succeeding career and ulti- mate destiny. The right of tho Legislative Council, therefore, is founded on the absence of any positivo instructions upon tho matter ; and because tho Act does not expressly pro- hibit that body from dealing with the Estimates, it assumes that the right claime...

LAST NIGHT'S DEBATE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 10 April 1857
LAST NIGHT'S DEBATE. Bl" the advice of Mr. Gregson, as will bo teen in another column, His Excellency has de- clined authorising the payment of the salaries for January, February, and March, thus de- nying the prayer of both Houses of Parlia- ment. The Governor is not to blame. &lt; His Etcpllency has shewn the people's ltepresen tatives that he was ashamed ofthe duty work he was called upon to do. And well he might be ! To assert, as Mr. Gregson does, that an Address from both Houses of Parliament, sanctioned by the Governor, was not a legal authority, is false,., as every Lawyer in the House maintained. Such s statement is shallow, transparent, and contemptible. Where aie all Mr.Grcgson's protestations now ? Where his solicitude for the unpaid Clerks ¿ow ? He has plenty ol money in the ehest ; the_J?ailiament has ¡riven^him authority^ to pay, yet what does he do ? He advises the Governor to refuse! "If," saya he, "the Clerks were dying in the streets of hunger, if they wer...
