"A WORD IN SEASON." [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 25 November 1854

" A WORD IN SEASON." Whkn law becomes harsh its ministers should temper its asperity with discretion lest injustice be done ; and if there be truth in our old legal maxim that ten guilty should escape ere one innocent suffer, it will be clear that such a course is the safest and wisest. Severity in a law deprives it of equity since it inflicts vengeance instead of administering jus- tice ; if its administrator add to that vengeance by an unnecessary stringency in carrying if into effect the injustice is doubled. It then not unfrequently hap- pens that the law, and its officers, by a retributive opposition, is toppled over irto one common ruin. It is unnecessary to accumulate examples when every reader of history will find almost innu- merable instances ready to his hand. We may, however, point to another consequence of such indiscriminate vigour-it lessens, public respect for the lawyer and the, administrator throughout every department of legislation. No one knows whether the case ...

INDIA [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 25 November 1854

INDIA Our files aro toi the 20ih September. I From the Englishman of the Gth Sept it appears that the Eleçhyq. Telegraph, has been made use of for some hoaxing, with a view to induce heightened prices iu some local articles. Some of the merchants had vented their spleen upon the Telegraph instead of those who had converted it to pur- poses of fraud. The whole line from, Cal- cutta to Bombay was to bs complete by the 1st November. The claims of the Delhi merchants who lj»d( assisted the Government during the late Cabool war were undergoing investiga- tion by the Governor-General, but the result was not known at the departure of the mail. A concert was given at Calcutta on the Oth Sept. for the benefit ob the widows and orphans of the soldiers and, sailors engaged in the war. It was well attended,tmac»' of the audience having to stand. Lord Dalhousie gave 500 rupees , for a 'single ticket. All was'qniet in Pegu, and seemed likely to remain so.

THE LICENSING DAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 29 November 1854

THE LICENSING DAY. WE again remind our readers that the meet- ing of justices for the hearing and determin- ing upon license certificates will take place on Friday next ; and those who will appear before them must be prepared to shew*that they have complied with the provisions of j the new act. It is scarcely necessary for us to add to what wc have said in íormer numbers of the Mercury upon this subject : we can only once more call the magistrates' attention to the nature and effect of the de- cisions tliey will pronounce. By tempering law with equity, they will save many a fam- ily from ruin, and every tradesman in the town from loss ; by pursuing a contrary course, they will inflict gross injustice upon others, and do little credit to their own con- sistency. The choice lays with themselves ; the public well know how to appreciate it, to whichever direction it may incline.
