THE CUTTY STOOL. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 22 April 1857

THE CUTTY STOOL. At the request of seveial of our Subscribers, uri» insprt the following from the Melbourne Herald of the 7th instant j we are informed thot matters for similar complaint exist in the "Eraatian " Church of this colliny. Sin,-The fate of the seceding minority at the late synodical meeting of the Free Près bytermn Church bears some resemblance to tlint of the ill-starred functionary who tickled the ears of Janet Geddes with the chanting of the obnoxious Liturgy, and elicited from her brawny arms'an expressive response in the form of a wooden stool ; thus settling tit one stroke what might have withstood the leagued antagonism of successive General As- semblies. One striking difference obtains in ;tho case now before us. The clerical minor ¡ty hare not bobbed or becked to the flying missiles of ecclesiastical censure, but have, with right good heart, returned the blow as tiley received it; and,-though of necessity, compelled to retreat, liave blazoned to the public thei...

THE LATEST RUMOUR. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 22 April 1857

THE LATEST RUMOUR. TiiEnE are still various rumours flying about the City on the exciting topic of.the forth- coming Ministry. We cannot vouch for the correctness'of any of them; although the fol- lowing wo believe, will be found pretty accurate so far as it goes : Premier, Mr. "Weston ; Co- lonial Treasurer, Mr.¿nues ; Attorney General, Mr. Francis Smith ; Leader of the Govern- ment in the Legislative Council, Mr. "\V. Henty;-who,together with'Mr. Kermode, will hold seats> in the Executive without Office. The appointment ol' Solicitor-General has been offered to Mr. J. C. Gregson, whose conduct, considering his trying position, has been unobjectionable. A rumour has also gone abroad, that Mr. Champ is about to re- tire from the representation of Launceston in favor of Mr. Gleadow ; in which event Mr. Weston would resign the Premiership into that gentleman's hands, and take a seat in the Executive without office.

To us, indeed, it is a matter of congratulation, shewing, as it does, that honorable Members are beginning to find ont that the responsibilities of office arc something more than a name. The hungry aspirant for place and pay very rarely becomes a useful legislator, his aim being lather to conciliate f.ivor, than lo pursue that unddviating politi- cal course, which common sense, and the ne- cessities of the state demand. -The mea» of pottage possessed a greater value than the birth rights committed to his custody-the retention of office, is of more impoitanco than the welfare of acommunity. , , ^c^t»^; But the present difficulty may aiise from a disinclination on the part of some to accept office.

COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE» ENGLISH. LONDON WOOL REPORT.-FEBRUARY, 1857. Since our liutieport a considerable business has been transacted in «li descriptions of colonial wool and a further rise of full Id per lb. (making about 2}d since the close of the last sales) has been established. Much excitement exists as to the range of prices likely to be obtained at the next sales. The general current'of opinion is for higher rates, and in con- sequence holders of first hand wools will 'not be tempted even by picscnt rates. Dealers in London arc more buj crs than sellers ; the meagre stock held of all descriptions rendering them iudifieient to mnke sales except at extreme rates. Although many dealers and manufacturers arc very short in stock, several are now buying fiom hand to mouth. A general indisposition exists to buy at present rates, all parties prefeiring, if possi- ble, to await the result of our next sales, which arc expected to commence on the 19ii or 26th.

And yet our first iietrS of what occurs there will reach us via Bombay and the lied Sert. Even us it is, a regular post is established from Bagdad, through the Desert and Da- mascus, to Beirout, but it is doubtful whe- ther the home Government will condescend to receivo informática about tho military operations in Persia by the direct line.
