INDIA.7 k" We continue extracting the mest im- portant items; Extract of a letter from Simla, dated 2-lth November : " I am happy to in> form you that all is quiet up here at present, but many people in this neigh- bour ood have apprehensions (causes 'perhaps not known to you), that as soon as summer sets in, and the snow some- what melted in tho mountain passes, that we shall hear of something that will perhaps surprise the Government, ? although it ought not, as they have had timely warning. Tue fact is, news has just arrived here-from the interior, that a large ? body of. Russians, ICehmin Tartars, and troops from Bokhara, fyave I invested Yarkund, a place about 40 marches from Simla across tho Hima- laya Mountains, and on the borders either of Tibet or Chinese Tartary.

MARRIAGE WITH A DECEASED WIFE'S SISTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 24 February 1858
MARRIAGE WITH A DECEASED WIPE'S SISTER. An interesting trial was begun in the Court of Chancery yesWday, baforii Vice-Chanceli'ir Stu irt, and Mr. Justice Cresswell. The question raised is whe- ther the marringa of a British subject, with his deceased wife's sister at Altona, in Schleswig-IIolstein, where hy the law of that place such marriages arc legal, is valid in England ; and consequently, whether, according to tim law of Eng- land, the children uf such a m image are legitimate. Mr. Brook, of Meltham Hall, near Huddersfield, married his deceased wife's sister at Altona, ne had a second family. Both Mr. and Mrs. Brook died in 1S55. Mr. Brook left his property among all his childr.su in certain proportions. His son by the second marriage died ; and the qti'stio i is, whether his share of the property goes to his brother and sisters, or to the Crown, hy reason of the invalidity of Mr Brook's second marriage. The e isu was only part heard yesterday.-Spec- tator.

LATEST EUROPEAN. Five peiisoxs were lately discovered | dead in bed, at the east end of London. They were chiefly childicn, and had been overlaid by their parents" while asleep. Some of the deaths, howcver,were owing to the overcrowding of the rooms. In one instance 14 persons were lound to be living, worlcing, aud sleeping in one room in a house in Slater-street, Brick- | lane, Bethnal Green. The mother, father, and six children slept in one bed ; and the summoning officer was told thai "there was room for a dozen in the bed." At the same time three accidents from falls were recorded. A workman on the London Dock improvements fell from an elevated place into an excavation, a distance bl'40 feet; he received a conçus sion of the brain and an injury of the spine, and died shortly afterwards. A man was leaning out of the window of a house in Camberwell, when he over- balanced himself, fell on his skull, and I was injured to an extent which is likely to prove fatal. Mrs. James Coûtes, ...

To the Editor 'of the''Hobart Town Daily Mercury. Sin.-As an occasional visitor to ' the Legislative Council, I have painfully ob- served so much puerile obstruction made to the business, that I am inclined to oller n fo¡v remarks on* the Bubjoct, knowing that whatever appears in your journal, couched in a proper manner, will have its weight with the public, and, at the same time, act ¡is a warning, where a warning is necessary. Other persons, as well as myself, have noticed the worrying conduct of Messrs. WeJgo and Why to-par no1 ile pair um -in opposing measures, for mere opposi- tion's sake, and in dividing the House on matters really of public utility, and when a division has resulted in the glorious minority of the two lion Mem- bers, with occasionally a third coadjutor. 1 have not been very, long in the Colony, bur.

COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE YESTERDAY'S MARKETS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 25 February 1858
COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE YESTERDAY'S MARKETS. Veut little movement in the grain market to-day. A few parcels of wheat were sold from 7s 6d to 7s Od, the lat- ter being the highest figure renli/.ed throughout the day. Colonial oats are firm at Os to 6s Cd per bushel, but the market is not well supplied. Foreign oats continué at 5s to ös Od, and very little is doing. Capo barley was sold at Gs Gd to 7s ¡?erjbusbel, according to sample. English barley realizes 8s and is very scarce. Considerable quantities of hay came in to-day, but the demand was very moderate : loose hay may bo quoted at £G to JB7 per ton, accord- ing to quality, though a very good ar- ticle will obtain £7 10s. Country pressed fetches &lt;fc'7 10s lo ¿S, and the hydraulic pressed £8 10s to £9. Po- tatoes have increased in demand, and advanced in price, being now quoted at £0 10s to £12 per ton, according to sample. Onions, nlso, aro in demand, and have gono up to ¿SÍG aud £17 per ton.

LAUNCESTON RACES. We abridge the following account of Tuesday's racing from the '' Cornwall Chronicle" of yesterday. Twilight walked quietly over the course for the St. Leger, Kate Hayes being withdrawn. The Field Purse being the great race of the day, .all the horses entered started, except Flora, and the following is the order iu which they carno in : Mr Broivn's br. in. Mystery. 1 Mi T. Hill's b. b. Garryowen. 2 Mr T. W. Field's b. m. Merry Maid... 3 Mr T. W. Field's b. in. Britisb Queen... 4 lu the Maiden P.late, and after a spirited struggle, Miss Madeline won the first; lient, and Euphrates the second and third. In the Town Plate Fleur de Lis had the advantage of thefitsrt, and kept the lead in the iirst heat. Moss Rose followed her example in the second heat, winning that, and the third, being hard pressed in the latter by Tasmanian Lass. It rained heavily in the afternoon, which considerably marred the pleasure of the visitors.
POSTAL COMMUNICATION WITH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 25 February 1858
POSTAL COMMUNICATION WITH AUSTRALIA. The announcement of a weekly postal communication between England and India has been received by the whole commercial community of the United Kingdom with extreme gratification ; and it is looked upon by all parties in the light of an instalment, and a3 a pre- liminary slep in the right direction, to- wards the establishment of something more than a monthly correspondence with Australia. In truth, wo doubt if, under the existing very incomplete and insufficient arrangements, we should not be more correct in describing the irregu ' lar intervals which at present intervene between the arrival of eaeh mail from 'Australia, as being more like an alfcer : nato monthly system of communication than a monthly one ; as it frequently ' happens, from various unforeseen causes, that one steamer, being delayed long past the time when she is due, the suc- ceeding mail olten an ives shortly after- wards, thus bringing to hand immense - arrears of correspondence...

OEIGINAL COEßESPONDENCE. We do not identify our opinions willi those c j , our Correspondents. THE L VrE TRAGEDY AT THE HUON. f Garden Island Creek, Huon, February 23rd 1858. To the Editor of the Hobait Town Daily Met cm y. I Sir.- In last Wednesday's issue of the Advertiser, as also ol'the Daily News, it is stated, that tile unfortunate 'de" ceased left her home at "Garden Island Creek " on the morning of the murder. Now, Sir, this is not true, for the deceased was not living at the Creek, but at a distance of at least four or (five miles from that locality. Those papers might with' equal propriety have stated that she left her home at Three Hut Point, or^ Huon Island, the latter being by far the nearest to tho scene of the catastrophe. I am surprised the Adver- tiser should have made such a misrepre- sentation, the more particularly as that journal professes to be the only faith- ful chronicler of passing events au tho Huon, although oftentimes Whitened or darkened to suit particu...
