EVENING SITTING. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 5 September 1860

EVENING SITTING. Mr. ALLISON felt much hesitation in incurring j fresh debt but as he hoped and believed the intro- duction of ealmon would be a remunerative work he would not oppose the adoption of the resolutions. He considered the opinion of Mr. Marshall as to taking the ova in October and November rather than at a later period as suggested a valuable one and worthy the careful attention of the Committee, and if- that gentleman's views were correct it would be better to postpone the introduction of salmon to the next year. The COLONIAL TREASURER quite saw the necessity of caution and would pledge the Execu- tive to all care and economy in the matter ; at the «ame time he must vindicate the Committee from the harsh terms used by the hon. members for Hobart Town (Mr. Miller) and Richmond. . Any one would have supposed that Mr. Black was an injured and aggrieved person and this he thought a mistake, as the names of the Committee were sufficient* to shew. Mr. W. ARCHER acknowledged t...
