"We publuh in another column the salieut portions of the datnte ia each House on tbe address to Her Majesty. Of course the Opposition speakers di J not deploy their whole strcugfch on that occasion j but their arguments, .nevertheless, con- tain the gist of (tbe complaints against the Home and Indian Governments on i the matter.

MISCELLANEOUS SHIPPING. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 22 February 1858

MISCELLANEOUS SHIPPING. A schooner was signalled yesterday at sun- down. Tho non-arrival of the Black Swan at Laun- ceston from Melbourne may probably be ac- counted for, by the fact of her having been chartered to proceed to the wreck of the Eli Lafond at Black Head. The ship Trade Wind, of 1000 tons, and con- signed to Messrs. S. Moses and Co., was off Va- riety Bay yesterday at sundown. The Trade Wind is commanded by W. Johnstone, Esq.. and has about 260 bounty immigrants on board,     with the Rev. Mr. Drake, the agent deputed from this colony to select them. The Briton's Queen reports the Elizabeth Jane with her second whale.
