TO THE EDIIOK OF THE MERCURY. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 7 September 1860

TO TUE EDIIOK OP TUB MERCURY. Sin,-"One of your readers" has fired a Bhot at me, which Uko a spent ball just reached without in- jury. Observing in to-day's Jtereury the death of a man, who onco assailed nie in a long newspaper correspondence, 1 forbear any reply to " one of your readers;" it might bo ominous. In our present almost doiunooless position, wo may take a hint from the Maori, who pahs himself into strongholds, with double-barrel guns for closo quarters, manufactures his powdar, and does other civilized things. More visiblo spirited action is wanted, here, for instance, the Port Arthur men at work in the Domain, or better still, our citizens who won't bo riflemen, to dig trenches to Govern, mont House for tho use, of Volunteers. Depend upon it, the evil dnj' will come, and it strikes me, that the Government should go about tho defence of Hobart Town in a serious and earnest mamior, collecting what arms thoro aro at their disposal for present purposes, but ordering the bes...

NOTICE TO CORRESPONDENTS. Wa arc very grateful to our numerous correspondents /or the sympathy they manifest with us in the prosecution instituted against this journal by Mr. Justice Horne. If tue were al liberty to act as our feelings prompted us we should assuredly publish their communications as an index of public feeling ; but having placed our case in the hands of our Solicitors, Messrs.

For this reason we are ad- vised to admit nothing into our columns having reference to the late Will case until after this action has been disposed of. W...
