INSOLVENT COURT. WEDNESDAY. Before Mr. Commissioner F. Browne. In re J. W. Stilling. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 1 May 1857

INSOLVENT COURT WEDNESDAY. Before Mr. Commissioner F. Browne. In re J.- W. Stilling. Adjourned meeting for discharge, and for judgment, The Commissioner said, that this case had been adjourned, as the discharge of the insol- vent had been opposed, on the ground, that he had contracted a debt, without reasonable ex- pectation of paying it. His Honor had deemed it necessary to take time to consider his judgment, and after the best consideration he could give to the case, he had arrived at the decision, that the ground of opposition was not sustained, and that the Insolvent was entitled to his discharge. His Honor, then, at some length, explained his reasons for the judgment he had given, adverting to the evi- dence, and citing the law on the subject, occu- pying the attention of the court for nearly half an hour. Mr. Crisp observed, that, as His Honor had referred to the practice at home, he would, perhaps, as was usual in the English courts state, that the Insolvent had acted in an h...

THE MERCURY. Published Monday, Wednesday & Friday FRIDAY MORNING, MAY, 1ST, 1857. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 1 May 1857

THE MERCURY. iBublisfieíi íHouUarí, CSIrtmcsüarj & iFcilrau T' r-. - . . ,- . FRIDAY MORVIAÖ. MAY. 1st. 1857. The nomination of Messrs. Smith and Boys takes place to-day in the Market, when each'^candidate will unpack his tested against the opposition to Mr. Smith's re-election, and stated our reasons why we considered it illegitimate. When the Members of the Gregson Adminis- tration returned to their Coustituents, Mr. Francis Smith, as one of the pre- ceding Cabinet, deprecated any opposi- tion being made to the return of those gentlemen, as being unjust, ungenerous, and impolitic, and no obstruction, there- fore, was offered to their re-election. Let our readers compare this dignified and statesman-like course with the procee dings which will take place this-day on the Hustings. If men will persist in following a tor- tuous course in politics cr in men als,they must also resort to political or ethical sinuosities to make their crooked paths appear straight.

CHINESE "FREE" EMIGRANTS. KIDNAPPING COOLIES FOR THE HAVANNA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 1 May 1857

CHINESE "FREE" EMlGRANTá. fl h KIDNAPPING COOLIES FOR THE HAVANNA. From the Morning Post we extract the following articles having reference to au in- quiry prosecuted by the Local Marine Board at-Coi nhill, into-the causes of a frightful mortality which had occurred among the Chinese passengers on board the Duke of Portland, while the vessel was on her passage from Hong Kong to Havanna : Precisely half a centuiy ago Fngland re- pented of a great national Crime, and as far as, at the time, in her lay, atoned for it. On the 25th of March, 1807, the slave trade, amidst the applause of all good men, was Anally abolished by Act of Parliament. Twenty-seven years later the atonement wa* oompleted by the operation of the Emancipa- tion Act, which extended the principle laid down in the memorable decision on Somerset's case, in 1772, to the whole empire, and ter- minated slavery in the British possessions ; and on the let August, IÍJ34, seven hundred and seventy thousand two hundred mid eigh...

THE LAND SCHEME. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 1 May 1857

THE LAND SCHEME. One would havo thought that the hybrid land scheme of Mr. Gregson would have been allowed to lie quietly in the neglected pigeon JbflkfcuWtb otbAr «h^¿:pcoojs of Mitiiatcrial folly. £320,000 were we to have got for our^ land-lands pastoral,agricultural,agricultural suburhan, city lands and lands in the Pacific Ocean-take them all round at £2 an acre, gentlemen, and pay off your debts-when you have got the money. This was ttié"sôliemeoT Mr. Gregson. It is urged now, as au argument against Mr. Francis Smith, that the Champ Administra- tion had no scheme for disposing of the lands at all. Such, however, is not the case. Had the first Cabinet been allowed, they would have produced their scheme-one upon which much time and labour had been expended; one which would have opened up the lands, and made them available for the industry of small capitalists-aye,and for those who had no cap- ital at all beyond labor ; one which would luve inducedimmigration;-incresedourexportsan...

DISRAELI IN PARIS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 1 May 1857

DISRAELI m PAEIS. Our contemporary, the JPreíí,which always 'has some important privste public news to communicate, conveys this week the gratifying announcement that an alliance has been cemented between France and England. This " latest intelligence" will come u.on the public as a surprise ; but, incredulous as wo may be of such au event, our contemporary, with i's customary frankness, puts us in possession oi the source and evidence of this startling news. Mr. Disraeli has been to Paris, has made the. usual calls that persons of a certain standing are privileged to make, and the Press tells the moral of the most disti uguished of those visits :-" So far as Mr. Disraeli's reception by the French Emperor isof a political complexion and partakes of a public character, which can be our only reason for referring to it, it is a testimony on the part of the head of the French Government to the loyalty with which the English Opposition fulfilled its duties during the war; and again, if M...

ELECTION MEETINGS. MR. FRANCIS SMITH. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 1 May 1857

ELECTION MEETINGS. MB. ril£KUIS SJIITU. Tho friends and supporters of Mr. Francis' Smith met that jrentleman at tho Barley Mow, Battery Point, and at the Good Woman, Argyle-street, on Wednesday even- ing. At both places the room was literally thionged with citizens, who heard Mr. Smith express his views on many points, which have been most grossly misrepresented. The points touched upon may be stated in a few words : The present Ministry, Mr. Smith stated, would consent to no additional taxation, until the expenditure had been reduced to its lowest possible limits consistent with efficient go- vernment ; and even then, should taxation be .necessary, it would be laid upon propeifcy, and not upon the necessaries, of life. One of the charges continually urged against him, and which he had repeatedly de- nied, was that he was the author of the Li- censing Act. This was untrue. He had merely drafted it in accordance with the in- structions sent to him : further than that he had had nothi...

THEATRE ROYAL. MISS EMILY GLYNDON'S BENEFIT. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 1 May 1857

THEATRE ROYAL MISS EMILY GLYNDON'S BENEFIT.   Our accomplished favourite, Miss Glyndou, has announced her benefit for this evening, under the distinguished patronage of Colonel Perceval, and the officers of Her Majesty's 12th regiment, now in our garrison. This is a tribute of gallantly, well deserved by our beneficiare, but, irrespective of any patronage, Miss Glyndon, we think, would command a large audience, -not only from her particular merits as an artiste, but from the posi-   tion, which she has always maintained in private life.                             As an actress, Miss Glyndon has exhibited a   versatility of talent, and a correctness and an abil- ity of delineation of arduous character, which every lover of the drama, and every admirer of the &am...

Captain Babcock, who unfortunately possessed no papers, reports that Hong Kong, at the date of his leaving, was in a most unsettled state, with but little prospect of a speedy lei initiation to the existing disturbances. The English authorities at Hong Kong, at the period alluded to, were acting entirely on the defensive, and anxiously awaiting the unirai of reinforcements in the shape of troops and gunboats hourly expected.
