SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 1 November 1854

SYDNEY. WE are in receipt ol' our usual files. In the Legislature, Mr. M'Artltur with- drew his motion on the banks of issue until the next session. Commercial matters seemed improving, the accounts from the gold fields continu- ing satisfactory. 2498 ounces of gold were the week's proceeds by escort on the 20th, besides considerable quantities hy private hands. On the 19th,"a very large and influential meeting was held nt the Sydney Exchange Rooms to petition the Executive to sptire the life of Captain Ross, of the schooner Black Dog, w ho was convicted at the last Supreme Court Criminal Sessions of the murder of a South Sea Islander on the 30th January last. It was stated that the French commandant uf. New Caledonia, as well as the French Consul, had prayed Sir Charles Fitzroy to the same purpose. We trust that the efforts made in this direction will meet with success. ¿subsequently the meeting entered into consideration of the proper Bteps to be taken to enquire into the fate of ...

THE HERO OF SILISTRIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 1 November 1854

THE HERO OF SILISTRIA. At the moment of victory (writes the Tmis) and on the «battered ruins of Silistria, which had bden saved from capture principally by his own heroism and unremitting exertions, Captain Butler has yielded up his gallant spirit The point which naturally first strikes upon the attention with melancholy force is that his death occurred just two hourâ before tlfe retreat of the Russians was discovered. They tiad, however, tetrekted while Butler was yet alive. The amount of exertion he must have gone through may be best inferred fr.iin the causes assigned by those u pon the spot for his death. He did not die precisely from&hy wound which the sh ot or shell c-f the Russians had inflicte'd upon him, nor from exhaustion conse- quent upon loss of blood, but from sheer over-fatigue of body and mind, aggrav- ating the consequences of injuries which, themselves were not of a monal nature. The extent of the loss which the armies in the east have sustained by the deat...

To the Editor of the Mercury[?] MR. KERMODE AND THE LICENSED VICTUALLERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 1 November 1854

To the Editor of the Mercury.   MR. KERMODE AND THE LICENSED VICTUALLERS. SIR,- My attention has been called to the report in Saturday's Advertiser, of Mr. Ker- mode's oration the previous evening on the   Licensed Victuallers Act, and his attack on myself. I have always considered that Mr Kermode's buffoonery formed a valuable relief to the monotony of the Legislative Council, and have frequently regretted the withdrawal from theatrical pursuits which prevented my having an opportunity of introducing such extraordinary humour to the public. In fact I have often been surprised that my friend Watson has neglected his chance of procuring native talent of so high a description and which would have shown that' however deficient we might he in other respects we need cer- tainly not look abroad for a buffoon - crowded houses nightly must inevitably have rewarded such an engagement. But, Sir, to be serious, I do not see the right this person has under the cloak of...

The Mercury: TOWN EDITION. HOBART TOWN: WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 1, 1854. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 1 November 1854

TOWN EDITION. HOBART TOWN: WEDNESDAY. SEPTEMBER 1, lSfil " THE condition of human nature is such that we buy our blessings at a price." Thus said Edmund Buike nearly a cen- tury ago, and thus it may be said now. It appears that we have bought our Constitution, a very questionable bless- ing, at a price, about which there is no question at all. We have got our luxury let us call for the bill ! We are to have two houses for our legislative purposes-we who are in number, even on an almost universal suffrage, some 10,000 voters. Two speakers, two clerks of committees, two clerks ot Council, two sergeants-at-arms, two rents to pay, two houses to keep in repair, two sets of the customary ad- juncts to legislative ceremonial-all these will figure in the estimates to the tune of some £5000 per annum. Ten shillings for each voter to pay tor the happiness of having legislators not very much wiser, better, or abler men than himself. How we of the upper set will stand on our dignity,we of the l...

ODESSA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 1 November 1854

ODESSA. Every day that passes shews how true was the instinct of the English people -hot a bloody minded or vindictive people-when they universally conde- mned the leniency of our admirals before Odessa The mistake lay in not treating the Muscovites as barbari- ans-not speaking the language which barbarians understand. What is tlv*. result? An assertion, believed in Rus- sia and in all the ignorant eust^ that we were beaten. Folks may laugh at Rus sian''victories;"and the wvstern nations know that France and 'England hud Odessa ut their mercy. But the point just now is, not to parade the chivalries of a tournament before western Europe BO much as it is to suddenly illumine the intellect of n - thousand barbarous tribes :-Cossacks by the Don,,lind Ûè or»iana in their mountains«, and Tartars in the Crimea, and Fellahs by the Nile, and Arabs in the desert?,* and Bellochèes in the wilds of the.

THE TASMANIAN EXHIBITION. To the Editor of the Hobarton Mercury. Sir»,- The present aspect of affairs relative to the "Tasmanian Exhibition" would seem to evidence a success far less complete than the importance of the occasion or the resources of the colony could possibly have admitted even if matters hud been left to take their natural course and the proceed- ings of the committee partaken simply of a negative character. It is barely competent for any one to imagine that, upon so im- portant an event as the Paris Exhibition, where opportunities for the display of National riches will be opened, such as could be paralleled only in the Crystal Palace - I say, sir, it is barely competent to imagine that the public could be so tardy in furthering the advancement of their country's welfare, to receive as unheedingly the invitation of their local committee, as from the scanty contents of the Tasmanian Exhibition we must infer the people of this island have done, unless perchance there b...
