NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 7 January 1856

NEW ZEALAND. From a lottor that ftppenrod in tlio Nciv Zealand Spectator of the 2nd November, we learn that a voloano has been discovered about 120 miles to the southward of Cape Campbell, and almost under the snowy verge of Kia Ivora. The eone in size is incon siderable, being surrounded by others of much greater altituded. It is apparently about two miles from the sea. During the day time tho flame is of course invisible, except a few thin wreaths of ?white vapour ; five wero counted, and a dense canopy of smoke - alone indicating its existence. As the darkness of the evening .increased, the glow from the crater becomes gradually perceptible, until at length the flame can bo seen rising in a thin and unsteady column to u great height. A volcano did not exist in that locality previous to the last severe earthqualco, and the discovery ot' this may tend to remove any dread which may still remain that there may be a recurrence of the event of tho 23rd January last.

TASMANIA. HOBART TOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 7 January 1856

TASMANIA. HOBART TOWN. ' Commercial 'And Markets. — the tendency of wheat and flour is still as we anticipated, downwards ; so much so, as will be seen by the subjoined report of one or two auction sales of flour, that we do not care to see it further reduced. The price realised at those sales is reasonable, and when prices go below a paying rate speculators and capitalists very soon contrive to get the market in their own hands, and the public are sure to be sufferers in the end. Tho price of bread is a fair specimen of this, for although flour is obtainable at £35, the price of the 2lb loaf is still kept at 8Ad ; the establishment of one or two victualling societies would serve the double purpose of rendering the millers and bakers a little less extortinate in their profiits, and be a great benefiit to j the comm unity ; and in particular tho labouring classes, who can ill afford, at present, to pay so highly for'- the necessaries of j life. — Hobarl Town Advertiser. \ Universal S...

The Russians had succeeded in getting their fleet through the passage by lighting them. A portion of the allied fleet had attempted it, but without success, and they had called at Ayan, where they effected a landing, and found the place nearly deserted, when they destroyed a small steamer on the stocks, demolishing all her machi nery.

PRINCE GORTSCHAKOFF THE FALL OF SEBASTOPOL. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 7 January 1856

PRINCE GORTSCHAKOFF ON THE FALL OF SEBASTOPOL. . The Invalids Russa contains Prince Gorfcschakoff's version of tho fall of Sebastopol in a general order, addressed to the army of the south. After . stating that five out of six attacks were 'gloriously repulsed,' it concludes as follows : — Valliant comrades — It is painful, it is hard to leave Sebastopol in the enemy's hands. But remember the sacrifice wo made upon ? tne altar ot our country in lyia. Moscow was surety as vatuauie as Sebastopol — wo abandoned it after tho immortal battle of ?Borodino. The defence of Sebastopol during 349 days is superior to Borodino, and when the enemy entered Moscow in that great year of 1812 they only found heaps of stones and ashes. Like wise it is not Sebastopol which we have left to thorn, but the burning ruins of 'the town which wo ourselves set fire to, having maintained the honour of the defence in such a manner that our great-grand-children may re-call the remembrance thereof with pride to a...

English Extracts. THE WAR.—RETROSPECT AND PROSPECT. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 7 January 1856

-®ngl©lj (IMrarte. THE WAR.— RETROSPECT AND PROSPECT. (From the Liverpool AHiiov, September 17-) Having from the beginning of the war steadily looked to its probable end, and never believing that such end would bo found in cr near the Crimea, it will not be expected that we should par ticipate very vividly in tho transport occasioned by the incidents of the past week, save in so far of course as they redound to the military glory of our country. Thus further also we regard them as inestimable, namely, for the stimulus they have afforded to the spirit of England, and the consequent rebuke administered to the false and faint-hearted amongst us — to the knavish, the despotic, the reactionist, and the obscurantist everywhere. Still, farther, too, we prize them beyond price as following with such opportune promptitude on the French treaty with Persia, [spoken of last week,') and therefore likely to aid the Asiatic nationalities by spreading the animus of antagonism to Russia in regions w...

Cults nnit ?WrJ)rs. MISS BIDDY 'WHELAN'S BUSINESS. - ; Chapter XIII. .-'Grace Kiall was committed by her father to the care, of Mrs. Boylan, whose afflictions rendered it easy to recon cile her circumstances which, at a former .period, would have encountered her warmest and bitterest opposition. During the month that had yet elapsed before the assizes, she had many times occasion to be thankful for being afforded so watchful and patient a companion. The devo tion evinced by Grace for the object of their mutual anxiety, would of itself have propitiated his aunt ; but when, combined with the most perfect absence of selfish ness, with a temper now proof against all trials, and sha dowed by a dejection and forlornness of heart inexpres sibly touching in one so young and beautiful, Mrs. Boylan felt doubly the blow that was about to separate her from this interesting girl, whom she almost felt to be a second tie of existence Under the sanction of his aunt's presence, Grace every day passe...

THE BALLOT. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 7 January 1856

THE BALLOT. Eor many years the ballot has, in connection with univer '? sal sufferage, been the war-cry of the friends of the peo ple in the mother country. By the people, we mean the producing classes who are 'the bone -and sinews of the nation -; and many have been the struggles of the frienda ?of freedom and purity of election in the British House of Commons. Their efforts have not yet been crowned, with success, yet there has been an annual increase in the numbers of its supporters. The obstacles to be overcome ?in the matter of the ballot are formidable — the growth of ages, and fostered by the prejudices and interests of an ?exclusive obligarchy. They well know that if the people were permitted to use the franchise without let or hindrance, or -to follow the dictates of their own con . sciences, that their rule would soon be at an end ; they would no longer fatten on the resources of an overtaxed and, in these respects, an oppressed people ?; hence their opposition to the ball...

We last night had the good, fortune to furnish in. a special edition an ausw^r to this enquiry. The generals of the allied armies wl^ch the Russian journals assure us are besieged and hemmed in by Prince Gortschakoff's troops, have felt that they could conveniently spare a large number of men from before Sebastopol to reinforce the corps at Eupatoria. ' The fact indicated from several sources as probablb is now simultaneously announced from Constantinople and St. Petersburg. Prince Gortschakoff informs his master, who has gone to meet bad news, that a reinforcement of 20,000 troops of the Allies had landed at Eupatoria, and that the division there raised to a strength of 30,000 men, had attacked the Russian infantry, which retreated over the heights of Rusta.'

WAR MOVEMENTS IN ASIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 7 January 1856

WAR MOVEMENTS IN ASIA. Letters from Kars, to the 25th August, describe the thorough devastation of the surrounding district by the Russians. The provisions of the garrison could not last longer than the 15th September, and, if reinforcements did not arrive. General Williams would be compelled to submit. The Russians, however, were themselves hard - pressed by the snow which had already set in, and which, if the garrison could only hold a little longer, would compel them to retreat. Another letter from Kars says — 'Omar Pasha has arrived from Batoum, and was received with great j enthusiasm by the half-starved garrison of the place. The ' strength of the corps de armee, which is represented as 16,000 men of all arms, does not exceed at present 4000 sabres.'

(Abridged from the S. M. Herald's Correspondent's Letter.) [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 7 January 1856

{Abridged from the S. M. Herald's Correspondent's Letter.) Nothing is yet definitely known as to the new Ministry. Mr. Nicholson has met with unexpected difficulty, and the illness of his Excellency has delayed any official communication to the Governor as to his progress. Mr. Nichoissn had an interview with Sir Charles yesterday, and it is stated partly confidentially that he submitted the following list ; — Chief Secretary ? William Nicholson Attorney General ? Henry Chapman ' Treasurer ? ? ? ? John Goodman Trade and Customs ? ? ? Valentine Hellicar Surveyor General. . .. .. .. Augustus F. A. Grooves Solicitor General ? ? ? Robert Moleswortli. Mr. Goodman's appointment is intended to conciliate the sqatting section of the House. Mr. Miller's appointment as Commissioner of Public Works will, excite less jealousy among his rivals in trade than his appointment as Treasurer. Mr. Greeves, it is said, was needed by the minority as a debater. The want of professional knowledge oil the pa...

But it seems that Roger has actually overlooked himself, in his compilation of the ' Retiring Pensions' Act,' he did not look before he leaped. Sixteen years' service was required to qualify a gentleman for his ticket of absence — Roger has only served fourteen years, and therefore is not due for unlimited indulgence.

There are some so tricky, so false, and upon mischief so intent, that whether in matters of the most serious moment, or in hours i of mere pass-time, they cannot allow their evil propensities to slumber, and yet their idle joke may be but from the levity of thoughtlessness, or from the feeling that there is no harm ; they should, however, reflect, if seriouslv reflect thev can. that thp.ir joke, or joking from system, may result in much pain and un merited humiliation to the friend whom they honour .' with the patronage of their experimental mock patriotism. If they were to use their own names only — and that any, the most sceptical or the most confidingly simple, could consent to be deceived — the prac tised deception and the evil would be of the less consequence.
