VICTOREA. Our usual files have arrived, and do not enable us to report any improve ment at Mel- bourne.

ercury HOBART TOWN : SATURDAY. DECEMBER 2*n, ÍSC4. IN our issue of the 18th 'November we re- ferred to the depressed commercial condition of this colony ; and, at some length dwelt upon what we apprehended to be its cause. We now resume the consideration of the subject. Unlike an old and settled state, the posi- tion of the colony is one in which not to ad\ ance is to go back. ! It_may so happen in the history of a kingdom, that power may seem to have reached its strongest, wealth its ut.nost, refinement its highest ; and that half a century may roll on w ithout visible increase or decline. But it cannot be so with the position of Van Diemen's Land. All is pi ogress aiound us; for us to stand still is not merely to be left behind, but to destroy cur onward capacity. We advance to prosper, we stay to become a non-entity : what community would hesitate in its choice ! It is true that we have before had alter- nations of depression and prosperity, but we may not draw thence .conclusion...

No licenses were refused, save what under' ordinary circumstances would have been 5 and the inkeepers of the Hobarton district have now time to prepare themselves for the more rigorous application of the act, which was indicated by Mr. Henslowe as likely to be made at the next annual licensirig day. Credit is due to the justices for their equity in this very difficult matter j and we hope that the management of our public-houses in the ensuing yöar will be such as to convince them that such considerations are not thrown away. For ourselves, we can certainly claim some share in the bringing about this result ; and we are the more Satisfied because, however unpopular, and however singular we may have been in the opinions we advocated,...

SANDY BAY REGATTA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 2 December 1854

SANDY BAY REGATTA: THIS annual aquatic festival came off on Thursday, and proved successful beyond the fondest anticipations of its most sanguine pro- moters. Everything combined to render it so. Early in the morning, a signal gun from the Mooltah proclaimed that everything was pro- pitious. The weather was peculiarly fine ; the sun shone out gloriously throughout the day, yet the heat was at no time oppressive, tem- pered as it was by a delicious breeze from the eastward, which, whilst it was not so strong as to constitute a drawback in the rowing con- tests, was just the thing for the Milling match. The prizes were large, the entries numerous, and much genuine sport was anticipated from several of the contests. The attractions of the   sport and the fineness of the weather, com-   bined to draw many thousands to the spot.   From early morn, pedestrians came pouring in; and, at noon, the cry was "still they come." A considerable company arrive...
