California and Australia. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 12 March 1856
California and Australia. In the rise and progress of California and Austra lia — the two great gold-fields — a fair opportunity has been presented of comparing the colonial system of Great Britain and the working of our democratic institutions. When the discovery of gold was made at Sutter's Mills, and its announcement was spread abroad, there flocked to the territory of California the representatives of almost every nation. Ofconrse among snch a multitude a large number were to be found who were, indeed, the very scum of the different coramnnities of which they Jigd Jaeen. members. This was only what mi«-;bt have been expected, since it was chiefly the idle and the vicious who could afford, at a moment's warning, to forsake their homes and their business, to embark upon an expedition the success of which was eo uncertain. The gathering together of snch a heterogeneous mass of banian beings prodnced its natural effect. Every account which reached us from the golden region brought t...

Russia in the Pacific. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 12 March 1856
Russia in the Pacific There has been a growing, danger in the North Pacific The Russians, established at Behring's Straits, at Petropaulovski, and upon the Ambor, have been long engaged in preparing for a great development of power in Eastern Asia. If their actual possessions in that quarter of the globe be examined, it will be found that, in them selves, they are not of much value. It has been the traditional policy of the Czars,, however, to acquire is the first place terri tories which other Governments would not care to dispute, and these serve as avennes to richer dominions. Upon thi6 principle the blood of armies, and large draughts from the exchequer, have been lavished to secure the wastes and solitudes of Tartary, the prolific breeding ground of martial na tions. A treble object is thus gained. The bones and sinews of the desert race,1 the cheap levies of conquerors, are brought into the Russian armies. The forces once wielded by Genghis and Timour were pai tially incorpora...
TASMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 12 March 1856
TASMANIA. Hobakt Town, Jan. 1 1, 1856. — We have nothing of great importance to report, the markets generally continuing in a quiescent state. Colonial flour, how ever, is scarce, Tasmanian realising £40, and good Chilian £36,the baking trade being at present chiefly supplied with this article. Of wheat theie is little or none in the market; seventeen bags, ex Duncan Hoyle, from Pitt water, sold on Monday, at 16s to 16s 6d per bushel; two or three cargoes, however, are soon expected from Adelaide, and our own new wheat will soon come to hand, so that no considera ble advance may be expected in breadstuff's. Potatoes are declining, and may be quoted at from £9 to £10 per ton, with every prospect of a full supply. The following are the only., sales by auction that need particular notice: — On Monday, Mr. Guesdon sold 400 sheep, ex City of Hobart, from Melbourne, at from 25s to 25s 9d each. On the same day Messrs. Brent & Westbrook sold, on the premises of the late Mr. Lackman,...

The Function of a Legislator. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 12 March 1856
The Function of a Legislator* Judging from the different opinions ad vanced at public meetings with respect to the actual position and official duties of a legislator, it must be almost as difficult to declare what is a member of Parliament as I to determine ' what is a pound?' The cus tom of putting candidates through a series of catechetical lessons 6erves, however, not only to measure the capabilities of repre sentatives, but also the capabilities of elec tors. It is amusing to notice the strange motley of political sentiment which an hour's cross-questioning will present on the part of the electors, whose queries are very often of such a nature that neither Whio-, Tory, nor Radical could reply to them. We might present a most extraordinary piece of mosaic-work to our readers, were we to dovetail together all the marvellous questions that have been asked, and all the marvellous sentiments that have been avow ed during the present contest by electors who were unwilling to give ' a...

Review. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 12 March 1856
Review. (From the Examiner, February 24.) Sketches, Legal and Political, by the late right Hon. Richard Lalor Sheil. Edited, with Notes, by M. W. Savage, Esq. Two vols. Hurst and Blackett, for Colborn. We ought to be grateful to the rascally pirates who have compelled this authentic publicaticn,and claim the knaves for our ' very good friends.!' In their edition was brought together quite as much not written as written by Sheil and the book was blurred and blotted by notes too silly for the meanest capacity. Here we have noth ing but Sheil's writing guaranteed by one who knew him well, and enriched by notes from a hand in every respect competent to supply them. Mr. Coiburn has really done well to contribute such a book to our libraries. For, perishable as were many of the sub jects dealt with by Sheil (and as to which we see a judicious discretion exercised here,) and temporary as were the excitements amid which he too often wrote, his Sketches, thu3 collected, stand the test far be...
