RUSSIAN AMBITION IN THE NORTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 29 November 1854

RUSSIAN AUBI-rtOH IK THE NORTH* Frpm the plans found at Bomnrs'und it is pro Ved that, these works were not more than the fifth part of the vast marine fortification tlie Emperor of Russia had begun to erect on these islands. Immense expense had already been incurred ; the works were carried on with activity until the commencement of the present war ; and they would in n few years have cofnmanded'the Baltic by another for- tress aa difficult of attack as Cronstadt or Sebasteppol. Admiral Parseval reports to the French government that he had since the siege carefully examined "the outline of these works, which were intended to make Bomarsund a military position of great im- portance ; and he adds, that " the-geographic position of Aland, with its magnificent port, rendered mofe Valuable by the difficulty of accès to it, must have suggested to the Em- peror o f Russia a vast naval establishment commanding the two Gulfs of Bothnia and of Finland, threatening Sweden and the whole Baltic...

SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 29 November 1854

SYDNEV. . Our advices are to the 15th instant, and .report no changes in the commercial world. It is to be remarked that in this respect the "condition of New South Wales appears to be 'far above that of Victoria. ( The exhibition of local contributions in aid of the PurisGreat Exhibition has been opened by the Governor-General, and seemed a very valuable collection of colonial produce, in- cluding some fine samples of iron ore and of ""coal. Great variety also occurred in the woods, of which specimens were shewn. 'About a thousand persons, including the elite of Sydney, were present at the opening. ! The Empire states that the timber, ex Caroline, from Hobart, fetched good prices, "but does not quote, them. A steam company has been formed to pro- mote communication between Sydney and Balmain. A great public rneetirig had been held at Parramatta against the new constitution, when the usual speakers haiangued, and the usual arguments were advanced. _ In the markets we can report litt...

GOLD SEARCH. The adjourned meeting of persons interest- ed in prosecuting the search for gold in the Macquarie Harbour district was held on Monday afternoon at Mezger and Basstian's,     Argyle-street. The interest taken in the sub- ject seems to be upon the increase, if we may judge from the very large and influential gathering upon this occasion. In point of numbers the meeting was as large as that held at the same place in the early part of the pre- vious week ; but in point of influence, there was apparent a most decided improvement, the monied and mercantile classes of the com- munity being very numerously represented Amongst those present we observed**-His Wor- ship the Mayor of Hobarton, T D Chapman, Esq., M.L.C., Dr. Butler, M.L.C., Messrs.

Intal ânttllipiri NUMBER OUR STREETS. - We- are surprised at tho senseless opposition made in the Courtof aldermen to Mr Alderman Elliaton's motion that the names of the streets should be affixed in suitable situations and the houses numbered. Uobarton is a century be- hind its time in this respect. And besides, who can'doubt the greatpubltc benefit that would re- sult from Buch a step. The postman on his round the clerk delivering an account, the shopboy tak- ing home a parcel-the stranger in quest of his friend-all would find their task lessened by the facility which names of street and nunibei s of houses would afford to their;, errands, t /lime is money and the employers would save in the îeudiness with which their servants could do their'woik.

.äp9f cwK,uy HOBART TOWN: WEDNESDAY. NOVEMBER 29TH, 18C4 THE Influx of Criminals Bill has received the assent of Sir Charles Hotham, and has become a fact. It has, for the present, terminated discussion, and fixed a barrier against the communication of a great por- tion of this island with Victoria. That it is impolitic we cannot doubt-unjust, no equitable man will deny-and in the very teeth of imperial legislation cannot fairly be disputed. Yet there it stands, and those affected by it, like men executed under an uüjviot sentence, must suffer the penalty, ho ,vcver in their hearts they know its" cruelty, ""} 'îôwever spectators may admit the . of their protests^ Well for us could wit entirely as au act of foreign op , - tui, arising solely from foreign dislike or injustice : the recent tenor of the articles in tlie Melbourne journals seem to shadow forth, dimly it may be, but in unmistakeable outline, a just retribution for the language and actions of those who have claimed to be l...

VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 29 November 1854

VICTORIA. Our files are to the 23rd instant. The state of commercial affairs remains in a depressed condition.. The price of gold was £3 18s. per oz., but apparently on the decline. A meeting of the Chamber of Commerce, has been held to consider the amendment of oí the insolvent law. Long discussion took place as to when a forcible sequestration should he justified, and much anxiety was displayed by some of the speakers to prevent the publi- cation of the names of creditors proving at meetings. It was a one-sided affair, but the subject was ultimately referred to a committee. A melancholy statement was made by the chairman "that, since the first of January last, the Insolvencies amounted to not less than one million sterling. If our readers will add to this the probable a mount of failures and com- ositions with creditors, not included in the item insolvencies, they may form some idea of the state of trade at Melbourne. Monster meetings had been, held to consi- der the verdict in th...
