THE DISTRESS IN NEW YORK. (From the New York Times.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 19 February 1858

s ¡THE, DISTRESS JN NEW YORK. (From the JSrew Yaric Times.) The assertion by largo bands of men, in men icing language, in the streets and | squares of New York, of sundry shallow theories concerning the "rights oflabor," is a fact which reflects so much discredit on the present state of popular informa- tion upon this class of auhjoots, that we cannot avoid ñjáking an at'fc'-irnpt, before i ínatters go any further, to place the question befopo the working glasses in its true light. Wa would fain save them from the misfortune'? which the teach- ings of de nagogues aro likely to bring upon them by au appeal to their own réasQn, rather than hy the bayonets, of I the National GúaYd, jemando Wood, with his usual .want of scruple, his bean urging them into ex-ess3s and'prefen ious which his organ, the Herald, two days ago, proposed to repress by volleys of musketry.

THE SLAVE TRADE. (From the Times, November 25.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 19 February 1858

THE SLAVE TSADfcl. (From the Times, November 2q.) As the attention of \'i<¡ pu'ilio is rarely absorbed by more tha'i ti single subjeot at a tiraf, and a* one question is very apt to drive anoihir altogether out ot tye fieldj we may perhaps bejustjfled in doubting whether many people in these days of Indian triumphs and monetary convulsions are giving themselves much concern about tim slave trade. Yet this nefarious trallic still subsists as muc'i as ever, to the disgrace of humanity, and if its proportions are not quite so shock- ing as in days pasr, they have recently sho.vn a marked tendency to expansion. Moreover the case has its financial as well as its moral aspect. Until the extinction of the trade shall h ive per- mitted the growth of legitimate com- merce and enlightened views anioug the nexro tribes, we are called upon to maintain on the coast of Africa u force of which the yearly cost was o.fieinliy computed but a short time sin« at half a million sterling.
