I " IT is no use crying over spilt milk," says a very
old adage, and no ono feels the force of that truism
more than the journalist. It is his province to
and so far as he is capable point out remedies. Not
the fact that Hobart Town would shortly bo the
scene of an influx of visitors from tho neighbouring
colonies, and pointed out tho utter absence of im-
places of favourite resort. But so far as we are
have been-unsightly savage wastes. The hill over-
colonists of Tasmania realised that fact. Long
surrounded it from base to summit. Stone
for constructing the roads also rppears to have
been partially collected for the purpose. But
that is all. The exigencies of constitutional Gov-
in the shape of advancement being attempted. We
have become-though practically pioneers of a rich
land-what our mother-land has been described-a
nation of shopkeepers. Our whole soul has
become the slave of Mammon. Money is the
game all round ; and wo rob creation to fill our
pockets. The beauties of nature have ceased to
charm us ; in fact we seo nothing in nature worth
adoration after we have, as it were, sponged tho
golden juice out of her heart. Never did man
pcrpetrato gi eater folly. Even the most selfish
is cast. But he cannot seo it. He does not

the wide, wide world. Farsiinoniousness is his
creed and paisimoniousness is his practice. Who
1 withhold her bounteous gifts, when man has no
other than sordid thoughts engaging his mind. It
is a mistake to supposo that a property holder has
no other purpoao in the world, save the increasing
of his wealth. Property has its responsibilities as
1 well as its advantages, and not until this truth is
piness of the world. But, as we have already
hinted, onrparsimoniousness practically deteriorates
our own properties. If we succeeded in making our
laid out as the Sydney domain is-having a carriage

tho barren sandy desert, it appears to bo now
undoubtedly wo should make Hobart Town much
moro a placo of resort to visitors from the neigh,
homing Colonies than it has hitherto beon ; and as
j a consequence we should derivo benefit therefrom.
After all tho cost of the works we have pointed out

largo army of prisoners at our command for whom
! we havo scarcely anything to do. Half their time
i appears to bo taken up in marching to and from
tho prison, and a good portion of the remainder in
preparing for tho march. In fact, tho whole idea
' of prison discipline appears to bo centred in theso
words, "How to do nothing." So long as no
special harm is done by tho frequenters of our gaols,
fully achieved ; and there wo stop. But in truth it is
a degradation in Government to imposo on its loige
subjects the maintenance of those who havo dis
disobeyed its law. Their labour should he utilised ;
surround our city, places which might bo made
paradises of, wo cannot help thinking that a present

affords good grounds for believing that they
will be found prepared to join Tasmania in any

products and manufactures.
" IT is no use crying over spilt milk," says a very
old adage, and no one feels the force of that truism
more than the journalist. It is his province to
and so far as he is capable point out remedies. Not
the fact that Hobart Town would shortly be the
scene of an influx of visitors from the neighbouring
colonies, and pointed out the utter absence of im-
places of favourite resort. But so far as we are
have been—unsightly savage wastes. The hill over-
colonists of Tasmania realised that fact. Long
surrounded it from base to summit. Stone
for constructing the roads also appears to have
been partially collected for the purpose. But
that is all. The exigencies of constitutional Gov-
in the shape of advancement being attempted. We
have become—though practically pioneers of a rich
land—what our mother-land has been described—a
nation of shopkeepers. Our whole soul has
become the slave of Mammon. Money is the
game all round ; and we rob creation to fill our
pockets. The beauties of nature have ceased to
charm us ; in fact we see nothing in nature worth
adoration after we have, as it were, sponged the
golden juice out of her heart. Never did man
perpetrate greater folly. Even the most selfish
is cast. But he cannot see it. He does not
is a myth, and he sees only his one solitary self in
the wide, wide world. Parsimoniousness is his
creed and parsimoniousness is his practice. Who
withhold her bounteous gifts, when man has no
other than sordid thoughts engaging his mind. It
is a mistake to suppose that a property holder has
no other purpose in the world, save the increasing
of his wealth. Property has its responsibilities as
well as its advantages, and not until this truth is
piness of the world. But, as we have already
hinted, our parsimoniousness practically deteriorates
our own properties. If we succeeded in making our
laid out as the Sydney domain is—having a carriage
cular Bays—and if we did something to make
the barren sandy desert, it appears to be now
undoubtedly we should make Hobart Town much
more a place of resort to visitors from the neigh-
bouring Colonies than it has hitherto been ; and as
a consequence we should derive benefit therefrom.
After all the cost of the works we have pointed out
would not be anything very material. We have a
large army of prisoners at our command for whom
we have scarcely anything to do. Half their time
appears to be taken up in marching to and from
the prison, and a good portion of the remainder in
preparing for the march. In fact, the whole idea
of prison discipline appears to be centred in these
words, " How to do nothing." So long as no
special harm is done by the frequenters of our gaols,
fully achieved ; and there we stop. But in truth it is
a degradation in Government to impose on its leige
subjects the maintenance of those who have dis-
disobeyed its law. Their labour should he utilised ;
surround our city, places which might be made
paradises of, we cannot help thinking that a present
pounds, would prove a lasting benefit to us in the
almost immediate future.
