THE MERCURY, $ublí8Í)eo íHonUnc, ?SrtntsTJa¡¡ AjFtiiino oft lot FRIDAY MORNING. APRIL, lOiu, 1857. th< TUE Colonial Secretary rose in his place in the House of Assembly on Wednesday to make a Ministerial explanation, which, he presumed, in virtue of his office, he was privileged to do. Such a privilege, we opine, would, at all timer be conceded, even were the Premier unable to demand it as a right. To have offered any opposition to such a course being pursued, more especially at a time when a distinct vote ot want of confidence stands on the Records of the House, would not only have been im- politic, but it would have been ungenerous if not unfair. Mr. Gregson, and his colleagues, ure to be placed upon their trial iu the face of the whole country on Tuesday ; and any act which'uiight even be construed into a desire to deny them fair play should be of all things avoided. We had no faith in the ability of Mr. Gregson'« Administration from the fiist ; nor weie we slow in avo...

RESUMPTION OF TRANSPORTATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 10 April 1857

BESTJMPTION OF TRANSPOSTATION. Upon this subject tho Some News has * the following :-It seems, as we have else- where intimated, to be generally understood^ that early in tho approaching session a mo- tion will be proposed pledging Parliament to the resumption of transportation, under . certain limitations, and with a view to afford complete security hereafter against the evils under which the country is now suffering . from the ticket-of-leaye system. Whether » the Government is prepared to adopt this course, we are not able to affirm with cer- tainty. Official opinions are strongly divided as to the expedience of a recurrence to trans- portation ; or, rather, as to tho actual results of tho ticket-of-leave experiment, it being ' urged by those who still continue to support it, that it has not yet had a sufficient trial, ' and that the evidence of its working is neither so ample nor so conclusive as to justify its abandonment at present. There is no doubt, - however, that somo meas...
