THE MERCURY [PUBLISHED DAILY.] THURSDAY, MARCH 4, 1858. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 4 March 1858

THE MERCURY [rr/IlMSlIED BAir.T.1 THURSDAY, MARCH 4, 185S. TILT administration of.Ttisticemustal ways be a matter of chief concern with every well-wisher of his country. To be care- less about the reputation of a Judge is to neglect one of the first duties of citi- zenship ; lightly to impugn his acts, or to defame his character, is among tho greatest social misdemeanours. Enter- taining these opinions, we could not be indifferent to certain insinuations lately made against the Judges of the Supreme Court, and against Sir YALEXTIXE FtEiirso in particular. If we notice them, it is not for any weight they have ' in themselves ; they do, in fact,amoutit to nothiug ; but because there are peo- ple who will believe any uncontradicted »lander, however gross ; aud because the Judges are themselves precluded from taking any notice of tbem by their posi . tion. No great attention need be paid, certainly, to the coarse inveighiags of a mortified Pantaloon wroth wita'the waud which disenthrals...

THE ARGUMENT FOR TAXATION EXPLODED. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 4 March 1858

THE ARGUMENT FOR TAXA- TION EXPLODED. " TitElîE is one more observation which here deserves notice, and that is the ab- surd sophism that taxes are like the su- perabundant moisture of the earth.raised by the sun (the state), to descend again in healthy dew and invigorating showers. What would a banker or merchant say to a house-breaker who, when detected carrying off hi» bags of money, would exclaim, ' Do not be alarmed, my good sir, you will be no loser ultimately, the money will return to you in the form of different commodities, and its diffu-ion will be a benefit to you.' It is more than doubtful whether such reasoning would satisfy the merchant ; he would be apt to think that the purloiuer of hi» cash had forgot the difference between the person ii pronouns ' meum ' and ' tuutn.' Again, it is said that a go- vernment with large civil and military establishments, which require consider- able disbursements to be raised by tax- ation, is a benefit to commerce, and to the naturi a...

THE BANK RETURNS. From the Economist, Dec. 5th. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 4 March 1858

THE BAN15 RETÜKNS. From the Economist, Dec. 5th. The Bank accounts show a slow but steady improvement in every point of view, as well in the actual condition of the relative liabilities and assets, as in the indications which they afford of the state of public feeling. The bullion shows a small increase of £92,79,3, ihe amount having increased to £J,3Ó0,4G7. The circulation of notes lins decreased by the sum of &2&J,87 5 - which together have led lo an increase in tins r-iaerv» of the banking department of £330,670. The banking reserve now amounts, therefore, to the sum of £2,729,037. The advances, upon pri- vate securities hire at last J ceased to exhibit an increase :-on the contrary, there is a small decrease, amounting tu £159,331-this item, however remain- ing at the extraordinary sum of £3l,191,3SC. The oontinued accumu- lation of private deposits has, also, re- ceived a cheal;, showing a decrease of £515,330, - from which it may be inferred that private banker...

POSTAL MIS-MANAGEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 4 March 1858

POSTAL MIS-MANAGEMENT. 'y Fs THEBE is an anomaly in the arrange "y ments of our Postal affaira, which we assert, without the slightest hesitation, is diametrically opposed to the impor- tant objects of that important depart- ment. This is emphatically the age of progress,-social, commercial, and gene- ral,-and it is the imperative duty of a Government to advance this progress by every means within ita grasp, and within the possibility of its command. These are facts,-incontrovertible, and indisputable,-but our Government, in its Postal mis-arrangements, has prac- tically negatived them. The startling and extensive revolution in the Postal affairs of Great Britain, which was effected by the persevering euergy and exertions of BOWLAXD HILL,-took the public by surprise, and his scheme was looked upou as the visionary chimera of a heated imagina- tion; but the result has proved that his views were sound and practicable, by the eaormous increase of correspond- ence, and-notwithstanding t...

SYDNEY. WE have Sydney journals, via Mel bourne.to the 23rd ult. Parliament has been summoned for' the 23rd inst,. for the dispatch of busi* ness. The Empire of the 23rd says : It is a folly to attempt a division of tho New Boase into ministerialists and nttti-ministcri nlists. There are not ten members who care . n rush for Mr. Cowper'« Cabinet, and it is well that Sir. Cotvpcr should tuon-it. We admit circumstances are in favour of Mr. Cowper's continuance in power. The difficulty in agree- ing apon men to succeed bim will induce many to extend to his administration a support which he would never derive from his positive merits. A testimonial was to bo given to Captain Moodie, of the City of Sydney, as an acknow- ledgement of Iii1 services in successfully carry- ing the mail from Sydney to Suez, for trans- mission to England.
