THE MERCURY [PUBLISHED DAILY.] FRIDAY, MARCH 5th, 1858. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 5 March 1858
THE MERCURY ErÜBLISUED DA-lr.T.] FRIDAY. MARCH 5th, 1858. The occurrence of several fires ia the city of greater or less magnitude «luring the last few days, naturally attracts at ( tontion to the means of prevention. For after all, prevention is needful and wise. Sometimes men say that the de «traction of property, by a fire for in «tance, is beneficial, inasmuch as it i occasions a greater demand for labor 11 ' «ad the outlay of money among trades- men; but the error is grave. It is true tuai when Jones' house is destroyed ; Brown and Collinson, the tradesraen,are .called in to repair the damage, and that "while Jones, or the Insurance Company, finds the means, Brown and Robinson obtain an extra job of work, and its corresponding profits. Neither Brown nor Robinson, however, can fail to per « eive that, in common with every other »habitant of the town or district, they Juve sustained a loss. There has been .n actual destruction of a certain Amount which the money paid as we have s...

COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE. VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 5 March 1858
COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE. VICTORIA. Tasmanian Flouii-In one of the late | Hobart Town pape s an extract was pub- lished from a letter received by a gentleman | there from a merchant in Melbourne, cau- tioning purchasers against the flour that was being exported from here. This has created some sensation among importers in Tasmania, who are all very anxious to free themselves from the suspicion of dealing in any but fluur of the best quality. On this point they are naturally very sensitive, as the public li vve not yet forgotten how such damaged flour vvas imported from this market a few years back, to be regraund with a small pro- portion of new wheat nnd reshipped as Tas muniun flour, thus irreparably injuring the I character of that flour in nil markets to which it was sent, and in which it previously [ stood so high. With what object this in- I f'erior flour was lately shipped from here of course ive cannot tell, but fh re is good reason to suppose that the warning was not 111 aim...

THE CRICKET MATCH. The large concourse of people that was seen wending its way towards the Government Do- main at an early hour yesterday morning, testi- &nbsp; fied very significantly that some unusual move- &nbsp; ment was stirring the minds of the quiet citizens of Hobart Town. As early as nine o'clock, many had reached the spot chosen for the forth- &nbsp; coming "cricket match," so great was the ex- &nbsp; &nbsp; citement, and so lively the desire to be &nbsp; &nbsp; present at the commencement of the game.
