LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. ACCIDENT.-On Saturday as the Brown's River Coach was turning the comer of Elizabeth street by the Main Guard,it ran over the little child of D. C. Morley.

This Township is improving very rapidly ; the population is now nearly 500 :.the roads   are being put in order, and the road to Flight's Bay, a distance of nine .miles, has     been surveyed and marked out by Mr. Ballan- tyne : it is hoped, as soon as the Culloden makes her trips to this fast improving port, .that this, beautiful Township, will meet with encouragement ; a matter of great considera   tion to owners of vessels in the speedy   establishing a clearing Port, and which will be much more convenient here than at Three Hut Point.

THE COLONIAL OFFICE AND THE COLONIES. (From the London Daily News.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 13 April 1857

THE COLONIAL OFFICE AND THE COLONIES. (From the London Daily News.) The Colouial office has, during the course of this year, revised the rules and regulations of the Colonial Service of the British Crown. This revision was urgently required, seeing that during the last ten years we may be said to have begun an almost entirely new colonial era. We have abolished that protective com-   mercial system under which some of our foreign dependencies fancied they flourished pecuni- arily at the cost of the Empire generally, but really at the expense of their own highest and permanent interests ; and we have returned to those principles and practices of local free- dom on which our earlier plantations were founded. Hence the Colonial office, which a few years ago had to think, or to try to think, for nearly all our transmarine possessions, has now only to study and supervise the public affairs of most of them with a view chiefly to the maintenance and diffusion of that spirit of...

THEATRE ROYAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 15 April 1857

THEATRE ROYAL. The performance of the Cor'sican Brothers on Monday ni>,ht exhibited what has never been exhi- bited before on these boards, namely some most beautiful and remarkable scnrte effects, bothpicto rial and mechanical. The major portion of the sceneiy displays considerable artistic talent, while the arrangement of the various tableaux evinces a knowledge of the picturesque and the impressive, which we have never Been excelled, and very rarely in our playgoing days at home, even equalled. As might be expected, some trifling difficulty was experienced in working the very elaborate machi- ne! y with perfect"facility, but last night the diffi- culty was removed, and everything went smoothly and pleasantly. The piece it'elf possesses much romantic interest, and the acting of Messrs Warner and Drummond, particularly in the lait act, was characterized by their usual ability : they were both called before the cm tain at the end of the play, and received as they deserved the hea...

UNITED STATES. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 15 April 1857

UNITED STATES. By the arrival of the Whirlwind at Victoria, wo have received New York papers to the 20th January. A terrifie snowstorm has taken place in that city, and the journals are very circumstantial in their narrative of the event and its consequences. Wo subjoin a few of the details given by the Herald of the 20th: " The appearance of the docks yesterday on either side of the city was the most Arctic imaginable. South and West streets were almost entirely deserted, and there one or two men might be seen standing at the door of a liquor store, and staring at the solitary passer by, as though questioning his right to be out in such weather. Dogs, which generally have business in the neighbouring docks, stayed at home yesterday, and but few horses were seen fulfilling their destiny. The ship- ping was frozen in and imtnoveablo. The snow had drifted into the docks and piled itself against the vessels' sides ; the decks wore covered, the spars and rigging thiokly frosted, and not...

POLICE. A Correspondent of a daily ConteiripoiWyj in a letter signed " Common Sense," and in» serted in the issue of the 7th instant, baa entered into an elaborate statistical detail on the proposed reductions in tho Police Depart- ment. The information thus obtained must have been acquired in the bureau of the finance Minister, as ii baa never been before published in the extended form adopted by our Conterapo-ary's Correspondent : the details,however, may Be correct, as to figures, and had the writer left off witu his statistics, they might have proved useful as mere news, but his suggestions in reference to the consolidation of the duties of the various Functionaries, betray, not only considerable ignorance of his subject, but a largo amount of assumption and arrogance, fior is his purpose devoid of some particular-, if not some sinister object : thus, in laying out auch itn praetibilitj as would occur by tue junction of Longford, and Brighton, and Richmond and Swanport,-providin...

Such a result lias, in some measure, evidenced pretty clearly, that the Representatives of the people are not tojbe treated like children, nor intimidated when in the performance of a solemn duty ; and it has also vindicated in the eyes of the sister colonies our tarnished honor, and wiped away tho disgrace which had attached itself to our Parliament, This debate has also shown that several Mem- bers, who have, hitherto, from modesty or dif- fidence refrained from taking any part in the discussions are possessed of considerable intel- ligence ; and that, when oecasion requites it, they can express their unbiassed convictions in a very terse and unmistakable way. The motion was discussed in a manner wort...

SINGAPORE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 15 April 1857

SINGAPORE By way of Adelaide we have Singapore papers to January 23. DUTCH AGGRESSION.-'The Straits Times says :-"A correspondent has directed our attention to the reversing endeavours of the Dutch authorities to restrict an important branch of Trade, by excluding all British vessels from carrying rice from Bally - to the ports of Java, upon the pretext that it is a coasting voyage, pretending or rather endea- vouring to induce the belief, that Bally is a part of the Netherlands India possessions. Bally is a free State ; the Rajah hoists his own flag, collects the duties himself and by treaty tho Dutch bind themselves not to in- terfere with the internal government of the Island. Our Downing-street authorities ought to lose no time in insisting on tbe right of treating Bally as an independent State and consequently the unrestrained trade between Bally and Netherlands India , for unless earlyremou3trances!aremade,|theDutch, will ere long will cite the fact of Bri tish vessels not bei...
