LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 22 April 1857

LOCAL, INTELUGJfciitfCií,. DENTISTRY.-The appliances of art and science cannot be better used, than in the relief of suffering humanity, and, as regards our teeth, much suffering is frequently experienced by mafiy person«, and norn various causes. We hnve inspected an importation of instruments by Mr Gabriel, the Dentist, of Collins Sheet which aie adapted to eveiy portion of his piofessional business. In the extraction of teeth, Mr, Gabriel has discarded the old cumbrous key instrument, by the application of which the lower jaw was easily fractured, 'and, almost invariably, u scale of the bone îemoved, and the tooth very often biokeii'in the socket. In pluceofthe key, foueps aie used, fitted, by the most delicate mechanical finish to the peculiar foi mution of each tooth, and thus, by the ordinary use of gentle force, the o .noxious member is re- moved. With respect to the *. stopping " of curious teeth, and the substitution of artificial teeth, Mr. Gabriel has piovidcd every possi...

DISSOLUTION OF PARLIAMENT. Great exertions are being made by several of our citizens to procure signatures to a peti- tion praying ¡1 is Excellency to dissolve the House ol'Assembly. So lar as the New Cabi- net is concerned, we believe it will comprise the names mentioned in our last issue. 1'be rumours which were afloat to the effect that Mr Gleadow would assume olfice as Chiel Secretary, ttud that Mr. J. 0. Gregson'b name would be found amongst those submitted by Mr Weston to His Excellency, still want 8tibstuutia.iou-indeed, there is no founda- tion, so far as we can gutlier, for the Report at all. It is pretty generally understood, lion ever, that the New Administration will be formed und officially auuouuced iu Purlin meut this atterncon.

THE UNREFORMING ADMINISTRATIO. From The Birmingham Journal. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 24 April 1857

THE ¡ UNREFOKMfNG AD.UINISTRATIO . From The Birmingham Journal. It may be, and we have repeatedly admit- ted the fact, that there is no great desire for electoral reform among those who have hith- erto constituted the source wheucc tint pub- lic opinion which most influences Purliumcnt, because most influencing the votes that ni ike members, is drawn. But it is 1101 becoming, it is not decent, it is not just, and therefore it is not wise, tint in the session next follow ing a war for which the people, properly so called, hud made such sacrifices so willingly, and were ready to make infinitely more willi nut a murmur, there should not bo n syllable of recognition of their right as free men to make laws which nt nil events would diminish, and certainly could not possibly aggravate, the criminal fooleries enacted by the elite of the governing classes, during the preceding couple of years. We conceive, therefore, that taking the most circumscribed view of the matter, Lord Palmerston has...

VERGER, THE ASSASSIN. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 24 April 1857

VERGER, THE ASSASSIN. The petition which Verger has addressed to the Emperor fills four pages, and displays some literary ability ; but is humble and sup- pliant in tone. It, however, shows that the petitioner considers himself different from the rest of mankind, and believes in his own infal- libility. He declares in the course of it that Christianity requires regeneration, and that the inferior clergy ought to be enfranchised from the yoke ol' the higher. He declares too that he looks on himself us the Peter the Hermit of a new crusade ; and that being de- termined to announce his mission by a '"coup d'etat," be had selected for his victim the .highest dignitary of the church. He, how- ever, adds that his condemnation lo death has not supprised him, ns a great judicial manifes- tation was required fur so illustrious a- dtalh but that that bare man fesfation is sufficient satisfaction to social order, and that lu go be- yond it would be unjust and impolitic. He therefore prays that...

Bein:; mt ? man of proud stature, and finding a gentleman, who could have hung him over a cbthes-peg, as a certain Kircudbiight was hung not many years ago, he confined the punishment to vio- lent infliction of " words that bum." His be- haviour was purely ridiculous, and not criminal, as it might have been lind Jacob Astley po sessed the valour of Thomas Astley, the good knight killed at Evesham. Or was it the thrift of Giplin that made hu hand " shake, butdelav to strike," like the hind .of Death in the epic?

The Retrenchment for which the Colony has so loudly clamoured, has buen either miserably misunderstood, or wantonly perverted into an obblructive policy, diametrically opposite in its effect to the advantages proposed to be attained by Departmental reductions. It was admit- ted on ull hands that to expend so large a sum per annum in governing so small a community as ours, was a monstrous ab- surdity-a cruel injustice. Both Houses of Parliament have rung the changes upon this theme-eacli contending with the other in the employment ot strong denunciations against the system. These denunciations found an echo in every p«irt of the Colony-and for why? It was presume...

CONFIRMATION OF SENTENCE AND EXECUTION OF VERGER. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 24 April 1857

CONFIRMATION OF SENTENCE AND EXECUTION OF VERGER. In the Court of Cassation, on the 29th of January, the appeal of Verger was argued by his counsel. Verger protested agaiust the procedure of the court which had condemned him to die, upon the constitutional plea that the opportunity waB not given to bim to call his witness and to make his own defence. The Court of Cassation deliberated two hours and a half before being able to give judgment and finally rejected the appeal. The Pope, as was anticipated, interfered in favour of pardon being extended to Verger, on the plea of insanity. The new Archbishop of Paris (Cardiual Morlot) also made a simi- lar appeal to the emperor. Their interces- sion, however, was in vain. The law was left to take its course. . The order for the executiou arrived at the prison on the night of the 29th, and such was the rapidity of the preparations that by two o'clock on t e following morning the scaffold was completed. Dtring the early part of the night Verg...
