PROTECTIONISM IN AMERICA. (From the Times.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 3 March 1858
PROTECriONISVI IN AMERICA. (From the rimes.) We have no reason to comphin of the country's progress in at least some branches of social science. Our system of finance gives a firm bads to the national prosperity. Our institutions secure personal liberty, and en- courage locomotion and enterprise. Political eco/ie;oy has grown up almost entirely with in , the limits of tliese islands, and here alurça is it that its principles, after meeting accepta- tion f oin thinkers, hive lie-n carried into practice by men of the world. It has been said that K/iglishmen cannot generalise ; hut we know no more striking instance of gene- ralization than when the who^e policy of the first C0fii;nercial cau'itry in the world was revolutionised in &tiedien,c& to, the theaden of a deductive science. How far Cither nations are behind m in this matter it requires but little observation ta perceive. France has not yet had courago even to hi ike the stsp from Prohibition to Protection. Many ...

THE SESSION OF PARLIAMENT. (From the 'European Times.') [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 3 March 1858
THE SESSION OF PARLIAMENT. (From the ' European Times.') Tho proceedings in Parliament since it met have been of little more thv~ routine character. On Monday, ih£^-^ of December, in the Upper Chamber, tat-, Earl of Ellenborough, who is great on Indian politics, brought the conduct of the Calcutta Government, in the matter of the Arms Act and the statute restrict- ing the liberty of the press in that country, before the House, and strongly condemned tt.c policy of the Governor General. He was at variance, too, with Lord Canriing,for treating Europeans and natives ou a footing of equality. Such an assimilation of races, was he thought, under present circumstances, little short of fatuity. The defence of Lord Canning rested with Earl Granville, a smart speaker aud ready debater, but in every way inferior to Lord Ellenborough in a practical knowledge of the subject. The last named nobleman seems to have turned his knowledge of ludia, gained when he was there himself as Governor General...

THE MERCURY [PUBLISHED DAILY.] WEDNESDAY, MARCH 3, 1858. THE MARINE BOARD. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 3 March 1858
"THÉMERCÜfiT LPCBLISUEO DAILY/. "[ , . "WEDNESDAY. MARCH 3. 1858. THE MARINE BOARD. Tux establishment of a Marine Board composed of practical and experienced men, will, we have no doubt, prove of the greatest benefit to the public, and the supersedence of the old fashioned jog-trot of the Fort Office ia an advan- tage which has already been felt by the attention paid by the Board to the re quirjments of the community. We have, on several occasions, strenu- ously advocated the utility of a swing bridge at the dock month on the Con- stitution Dock, and pointed out the ad- vantages which it would confer. Yes "'' terday a memorial, numerously and res ;- pectably signed, was presented to the 'Board, calling its attention to the sub- ject, and requesting its consideration of a matter of so much importance. The result was prompt and decisive, and a reference to our advertising columns will show, that tenders are invited for the u necessary work. We congratulate the public on this expeditio...

THE CRICKET MATCH. ¿ THIS great event comes off to-morrow, ",when we anticipate that all Hobart . Town will be collected in the Domain to " witness the second contest between ' Victoria and Tasmania for the palm ol' victory in the cricket field. It is satis ' factory to know that Hobart Town is ' showing a disposition to receive her visi "'tors in a worthy and becoming manner, and from the extensive preparations that .-' are going forward, we are sure that no --thing will bp left undone or neglected to render this occasion memorable. And the occasion is pregnant with more im- portance, than strikes thî eye at first '' sight-the results will outlive the eveut. ' The forthcoming match will give a stimulus to cricket, amongst tiie people here, and will tend to make that noble ".game looked upon, as it ought to be and is in the mother country, as a science, and not merely as a pastime.

YESTERDAY'S MARKETS?"* BUSINESS was very quiet in the grain market throughout the day. A lew salts of wheat were effected at 7s 9d per bushel, which speaking generally is the outside price, though a very superior sample would fetch 8s. Colonial oats remain at Gs to Cs. Gd. per bushel and are still very scarce. Foreign oats are dull of sale at 5s. to 5s. Gd. Cape Bar- ley is in demand, and prices have an up- ward tendency, a good articlo realizing 7s. 3d. English Barley is much en- quired for, and has also experienced an advance, being now quoted at 7s. Gd. to 8s. Gd. per bushel according to quality ; a good sample readily obtains the .hitter I figure. Comparatively speaking, but ' little hay carno in to day.which was sold at £6 10s. lo £7 10s. per ton according to quality.
