History and Statistics of the Post Office. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 5 March 1856

History and Statistics of tbe Post Office. There is, perhaps, no department the business of which, if daly recorded, will furnish more striking evidence of the prosperity and progress of the em pire, whether as regards the increase of the general wealth, the growing importance of tbe colonies, the improved education and intelligence of some classes, or the stirring industry and energy which is the na tional characteristic of all; we welcome, therefore, the first report of the Postmaster-General, which is in future to appear annually. The present document is a most important and interesting one, aud con tains an historical summary of the origin and growth of the British Post-Office, from which it appears that the first establishment in this country of a postal service for the conveyance of the letters of the public is involved in some obscurity. Tbe let ters of both private and public personages jvere originally sent by special messengers only, and more recently by common carriers, w...

Marshal Pelissier. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 5 March 1856

Marshal Pelissier ('Correspondent Illustrated London News.~\ It is a common doctrine that fortune plays a great part in war, and that she flings her favorites to the surface, and bears them proudly away on the tide of victory. But whatever share the fickle goddess may have in the issues of campaigns, it is curious that tbe heroes who win fame, if not re ward, are the hardy, the daring, the skilful, the laborious. If we look at the annals of the last war we shall scarcely be able to find one soldier who now bears any reputa tion that is not his due. If we investigate the services of those who carried off the solid reward as well as the praise, it will be found that they deserved what they won. It is in giving opportunities that ' fortune favors the brave. Some must be taken and others left. Among the highlyfa voured of fortune in this war is Aimable Jean Jacques Pelissier, the Commanderin Chief of the French army in the Crimea. Marshal Pelissier is said to be of Irish descent. There ...

But these 1 quadrupeds, from their superior sagacity, are placed in the team more for the instruction of the younger yoke-fellows than for the 6ake of their own labour.

Responsible Government in Victoria. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 5 March 1856

Responsible Government in Vic toria- The explanation given by Mr Hainesand Mr Nicholson of the late Ministerial crisis in Victoria furnishes, if it were needed, ad ditional proof of the inexpedieftcy of liie premature attempt which has bom ^aaadflr ' to introduce responsible government iteWo ?

'' English News. -x%S,EfXL °/ febaatopoL— PosalMUttesand Froba bottles of the Future. [The two letters subjoined, written by the late special Crimean correspondent of the Morning Herald, and published in that journal on the 17th And 18th September, have attracted much attention, '' and will be read with great interest at the present juncture.] All Europe is now ringing with well-merited ac clamations on the victory achieved by the allies in the Crimea. It forms the only topic of conversation; it is the basis of all leading articles in the morning ' journals, and the subject of at least half the letters in which 'A Friend to liberty 'connects the glori ous event with smeb myths as the restoration of Poland; or 'Miles' rambles unconcernedly about, marching round to the north side, and going up to Perekop to cut off tbe enemy's supplies.

Work. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 5 March 1856

YORK. (From our own Correspondent) Last week was one marked by the number of ac cidents which occurred; the most melancholy was the death of Mr Bailey, of Waterhatch; he had been some time at Perth, and was on his way home, by some means his gig was overturned in a gulley near Mr Quarterman's house, and when the deceased was found he was entangled between the gig and the horse's hind feet, the kicks from which on the head and breast, must have proved almost instantaneously fatal. He was buried on the 16th; the attendance at the funeral was most respectable; he was one of our oldest settlers. Some men in the employment of S. Burges, Esq., who were sinking a well got hurt by an explosion of gunpowder, but not danger onsly; tbe report first was that both were killed. Mr. E. Knott had his granary, containing a large quantity of thrashed wheat, burned down, much of the wheat was destroyed, besides several boxes con taining valuable articles, and also a number of farm ing implements.

There is no other in telligence from that quarter.   Holland, through, whose carelessness or incom- petency the recent boat accident and consequent loss of life occurred, has been sentenced by the police magistrate to a fine of £5, or imprisonment for a fortnight, for overloading his boat.     Dr. Arden, of the 12th Regiment, strayed into bush early last week, and not returning, the alarm was given, and a mounted party went in search of him, but, fortunately, he had succeeded in regain- ing the road, after going astray for an hour or two, and was met by the searchers just outside the town. The Postmaster-General, who has lately been suffering from severe indisposition, has been again compelled to apply for leave of absence, and to transfer the temporary management of his de partment to Mr F.

U'liey abstained from every proceeding which could cause pnblic excitement, or embitter the strife of factions. Yet more honorable was this that when Venice had afresh asserted herself a republic, after the national disasters in Upper Italy, when she was seeking to keep herself safe from the Austrian invasion, and when Mania had again risen to tbe seat of power, be followed a course so tempered as to give no umbrage to the constitutional thrones, and knew how to maintain public order, and to defend it from the wiles of the numerous fomentore of scandals to Italy who flocked thither to make trial of their theories.'— Sooh IIL p. 301, Giod stone's Translation.

A Very Free State. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 12 March 1856

A Very Free State. Sass-colotteish appears to have taken possession of permanent government in California. libertv sig nifies outrageous lawlessness; and freedom, theTright of every man to do as he pleases with the property of others. A writer in the Francisco Daily Herald of a recent date, gives the following unsatisfactory picture of the state of society in that part of the world : ? ' The melancholy and revolting aspect which social life, in all its phases, presents to the patriot through out California, not only finds a parallel in the poli tical arena, but owes its worst corruption and degra dation to the time serving, heart-debasing, con science-killing influence of our public men. Mur der, robbery, and arson run riot through the State, aadwe shudder as our eyes glance hurriedly and tearfully over its long catalogue of oui criminal cal endar. But we seem to forget that all these evils are the direct resnlt of the maladministration of law, produced by elevating men to office wh...

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. MERCANTILE REPORT. Thursday evening, January 10,1856. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 12 March 1856

SOUTH AUSTRALIA MERCANTILE EEPORT. Thursday evening, January 10, 1846. Trade generally is fiat, and but little business has been transacted at the auction rooms this week. The supply of almost every description of goods from England during the last fortnight has been sufficient to replace what was becoming scarce, and when the bulk of farmers1 work is done up the country a brisker town business may be expected. Meantime the chief trade moving is more in Eastern produce than in European merchandise. In the former we note the cargo of Mauritius sugar, ex Amiens, to be offered on Monday, when a brisk competition is ex pected. The first meeting was held to-day at Green's Ex change Boom as a public corn market, and the atten dance of millers, farmers, exporters, and others in terested in the trade showed a lively interest in this new movement, so well calculated to brin^ both sel ler cad buyer together, and facilitate tbe business of both. 10,000 bushels of wheat are reported to have bee...
