THE MERCURY [PUBLISHED DAILY.] MONDAY, JANUARY 4TH, 1858. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 6 January 1858
THE MERCURY [PUBLISHED DAIM:.] MONDAY, JANUARY 4xu, 1858. Tuebe are reasons wliich induce us to lie well satisfied with the election of Mr Osmond Gilles as the first Mayor under the new Corporation Act. We know that many have all along consid- ered the claims of Mr. Stewart to he superior to those of any other candidate, in consequence of his actually having been in office at the period the new Act came into operation. He has not en- joyed the honor for the length of time he had a right to anticipate ; and, had he been chosen as the first Mayor under the new Act, we should not hare felt disposed to offer one single objection. It ia but fair to state that we believe, Mr. Stewart to have been clear in his high office, during the time he has pre sided over the deliberations of the Mu- nicipal body ; nor do wo attribute the preference shewn for auother candidate, to any dissatisfaction whatever with the manner in which he has discharged his important duties. It has been consid- ered by ...
CAMPBE LL TOWN HOSPITAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 6 January 1858
CAMPBB LL TOWN HOSPITAL. We have had before us, for some time past, the rules, report, and balance sheet of the Campbell Town Hospital, an In- stitution which we aro happy to say is flourishing, although, not to the extent it deserves. By the balance sheet wo find that there are funds still in h ind-al- though, this would not have been the case had tiie trustees been called upor to remunerate the medical officers O' their professional attendance upon v» patients. To their honor be it said,f/at Drs. Vale.vtixe and HvanrNOTON Ivre given their services gratuitously. -The charge for rent (£35) will not be-ig-ñn domanded, His ExcELLEycr havhg, in the kindest manner, given a building to the trustees for a Hospital. The advantages of having steh an In- stitution as this iii the centre of the oolony, aro'so obviou«,that¡ to'point them out would be a work of supererogation.

MUNICIPAL TA[?]N. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 6 January 1858
MUNICIPAL TAÄ«orQIJ Immxdiatelt after the election of Mr. Gilms, to the Mayoralty, on Saturday, a requisition was handed to him by several influential Citizens, calling upon him to convene a Public Meeting to take into consideration the best means to be adopted for legally opposing the im- position of any additional taxation for police purposes. We are glad of this. In the first place, the people aro not able to submit to any additional imposts just now ; and, besides which, there aro two very strong reasons why they should not bo subjected to this particular tax-or, I to a tax for this particular purpose-at fîhft nrpçpnfî fiirin f Wo have all along considered this tax a peculiarly hard, and an/sxceedingly ob- noxious one. There need be no qualms of conscience on the part of any in ad- mitting that the cxpences incurred for the maintenance of a police force, arc principally rendered necessary through the indulgence in drink. Both directly and indirectly, a large proportion of our cr...

DE. HALL AND HIS APOLOGIST. It was no part of our purpose, when we defended the character of our wheat from the injurious remarks of Dr. Hall, to make any " long and labored attack" upon that gentleman personally ; we felt called upon to act with the promptitude we did, from statements put forth in a public journal of the Colony, and certi- fied by the Secretary of a Public Society It may be that the diaper read by Dr. Hall is as meritorious and as valuable a document as our contemporary states it to be ; and it may be, also, that the Secretary of the Royal Society is the ignorant pretender he is represented to be by the sani8 journal. We are no more in a position to form au opinion upon either the one or the other, than we are to form an accurate judgment of the capabilities of Dr. Hall's protege who has blown such an alarming flourish of trumpets in hU defence. Had we entertained so mean an opinion of Dr. Hall's abilities, as our contemporary wishes its readers to believe, is it p...
