GRAND CRICKET MATCH. TASMWXEA V. VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 1 March 1858

GRAND CRICKET MATCH. TASMWXEA V. VTCXOIUA.. A Tfir.Earc.ur. has been received from Launceston, announcing that the Mel- bourne cricketers will play the return match in Hobart Town on Thursday next. The occasion is one on which we hope to find the Tasmanian» victors ; and having some stout antagonists to encounter, we would advise our players to practise daily in the domain, com- mencing this clay at 3 o'clock, and re- peating the practice on Tuesday (to- morrow}, and Wednesday. They have got their work cut out for them, and have had a spice of tho quality of the round-hand bowling of their competitors. With good heart and proper practice the Tasmanians may ",come up to the scratch " in proper time : they must cast aside the " funk " which evidently pa- ralyzed them at Launceston, and mind, above all thing-1, the middle wicket. Round-hand bawling to the striker unaccustomed to it is rather a tickler to cope with, but it maybe successfully met by coolly and steadily " blocking " until...

THE INDIAN DESPATCHES. (From the Times, Nov. 26.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 1 March 1858

THE INDIAN DESPATCHES. (From the Tunes, Nov. 2p ) Official despatches come sadly ,after date, especially when the scene of nation is so remote as it is in Hindostán. Now that we know the fall of Delhi and the relief of Lucknow, there appears at first sight but little interest to be found in such reports as we published yesterday concerning the preparations undertaken for the siege at one point aud the rescue at the other. The earliest of the des- patches before us actually takes us back to the Cth of July, a period at which tilts great Indian contest wore at every point a totally different aspect from that now presented ; and even tim lutost| refers to scenes which have long passed away from the singe in the rapid progress of the drama. The very performers, in I many instances, are now no more ; the' writers of the words we read have died! the death of soldiers-, and their places are filled by others. Yet for all thi»,the publication is by no means destitute ol' effect. Oliicial sta...

t VICTORIA : ANOTHER MINIS r TEIUAL CRISIS We received Melbourne papers per the lloy.il Shepherd yesterday evening, to the Üöfch ult., inclusive. j The Haines Ministry has resigned, in' consequence of an ndver.-e vote on tho " Assembly Members' Increase Bill." the question at issue was material-re- presentation based on population only ; or upon the actual system with an ex- tension itiTnvour not only of population, hut of interests and classes. The Il'iines Ministry, says the Herald, has been thrown out in consequence of having proposed moro comprehensive measures of rcfoiMi than the people's re- presentatives wore prepared to lcceive. Captain Clirke, the mover of the adverse resolution, is nob to be sent for,' but Mr Chapman, who has been sent for ti form an administration, will include the gal- lant engineer in his programma a nutter of course.

COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE. » I di YESTERDAY'S MARKETS. Business throughout the day has been very quiet in the grain market, but prices appear firm at the c1 <*\ai quota- tions of last week. Wheat is still qui.ted at 7s 94 to 8s per bushrl the best simples, and but few sales were eflected to-day. Colonial oats realise tis to Gs 6.1, according to sample, but there is no great quantity in the market just yet. Foreign oats are very seldom en- quired for, and remain at 5s to 5s Gd perbuslul. Capo barley is quoted nt Cs to 7s, a good article readily obtaining tho latter figure. English barley is in considerable demand, but supplies come in very slowly ; a few parcels were s Id to-day at 8s per bushel, the sample b ing very good. The market is abun- dantly sunplied with hay, which moves off but slowly ; loose hay still ranges from £G to £7 10s per ton, according to quality.

"WHAT "A STORM IS TO A FISH- ING VILLAGE. A storm which raged on the Bauff.shire coast (of Scotland), towards the close of November, did such damage among the fishing beats that forty-two lives were lost in one day. We have this little scene reported from Buckie:-"The tempest was nearly at its full height by two o'clock-, and, as the boats came each in sight, there was a shriek, while the utmost anxiety prevailed till they were each ashore, and the men landed, every one providing himself with ropes and whatever could be supposed likely ¡to be useful in putting forth efforts to lave life. Great as the danger of landing [was, four boats came in at the Sauters in lafety, and the people on shore had al ost begun to boj e that all their friends iglit yet be rescued. But about half last two o'clock, a fifth boat, like the thors, without a stitch of canvas, came in sight. This one was pretty far west ind was expected to land in the Neuk, pposito New Buckie.
