SYDNEY.

VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 6 March 1858

VICTORIA. By the City of Hobart, we hare Victorian journals to the 3rd instant. The Ministerial crisis was still the all absorbing topic, and the Argus of Tuesday in a leading article upon the subject, says : " Things aro beginning at last to take a constitutional turn. Negotiations are in progress for the formation of a new Ministry, not a resuscitation of the ex- piring one. Mr. O'shanassy's interview with His Excellency, which, as is known, had no practical results, was followed by a summons to Captain Clarke.' We believe Captain Clarke made it a con- dition of his undertaking to form an Administration, that there should bo a dissolution of Parliament-a stipulation to which Sir Henry Barkly very properly declined to accede, as he had previously declined to accede to a similar sugges- tion made by Mr. Haines. It is re- ported that Captain Clarke then ten- dered his advice to His Excellency to send for Mr. Chapman or Mr. J. H. Brooke. The hon. and gallant Captain may possibly have ...

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 6 March 1858

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. WE have Adelaide papers to the 27th ult., but they do not contain much news of importance. A movement is on foot to present Mr. Bonney a testimonial previous to his departure from the colony ; the amount of the subscription is to be £1000, The Beg is ter says { His Excellency tho Governor has affixed the plate to the "old gum tree," commemorative of the foundation of the colony. His Excellency would take the liberty to remark, that however agreeable it was to him that this pleasant duty should occur during his administration, he felt that there was one drawback in connec- tion with it, and that was, the fact that the ceremony did not take place on the anniversary day. He could not but feel that he was guilty of an anachron- ism in affixing a plate on the 26th of February, which purported in its in- scription to luve been affixed on the 28th December. (Laughter.) He could assure them that although he did not possess the privilege of being an old colonist, he shared t...

THE FUTURE GOVERNMENT OF INDIA. From the Times, December 9.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 6 March 1858

THE FUTURE GOVEBNMISNT OP INDIA. From the Timet, December 9.) The principles unanimously affirmed in the House of Lords on Munday'even- ing with respect to our future govern- ment of Indi» will approve themselves o to all reasonable minds. It is plainly a is matter of imperative necessity that d mutiny and murder should receive their n due meed of punishment. Justice and wisdo . alike c di for unsparing retriba il tion. The bl >od of the dead lies at our d doors ; nor will there unless it is right i- fully ave'iged, remain any security for it the living. On the other hand, it is e equally true that we should commit both i a crime and a blunder in retaliating i. Í without discrimination upon the natives ir i of India when the authority of the Go- vernment has been restored. Punish- ment itself would be shorn of half its terrors if it were dissociated from law, nor could the guilt of mutiny be effec-l tually stigmatized if guilt and innocence were confounded together. But, nfter ju...

THE CRICKET MATCH. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Daily Mercury — 6 March 1858

THE CRICKET MATCH. The "Great Match" is over, and has     ended in the defeat of the Tasmanians. The game was resumed at 12 o'clock yesterday morning, the Tasmanians going in for their second innings with 94 to tie and 95 to win. The most sanguine of their friends had no anticipation of victory, and would have been perfectly satisfied, if they had scored as many runs yesterday, as in their first innings. But in this they were disappointed; the bowl-   ing of Messrs. Wills and Elliott was so excellent that the Tasmanians could do nothing with it. The bowlers had changed ends, and Elliott yesterday de- livered his balls with much greater effect than on the previous day, while Wills was unerring as ever. The fielding of the Victorians was also so admirable that to steal a run was impossible. The Tasmanians kept their opponents em- ployed for nearly two hours, but suc- ceeded in obtaining only 25 runs. We subjoin the score:—   &amp...
