Review. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 26 March 1856

99.. ~l-~. Bmtiry's Afiwrlfqiay/gr Octobtr:— War topics have a prominent place in this number. Amongst these 'The Fall of Sebastopol' holds the chief rank. It is a very excellent sketch of the events which took place Iron the reopening of ibe bombardment to the flight from the city. The writer is mistaken. however, when ho says that 'after tho key of the place is in the hands of the assiiUnu, the assault cannot be loo general.'' On the contrary, when the key of a fortress i* in the hand* of tbe besieger*, tbo subsequent assault lead* to more t*«4»V«e bloodshed. Surely the history of tbe 8th September shorn that plainly enough. Tbe besieged know well enough that all defence under such cireamstances is nnavaiung; witness what took place at Toulon, when the French troops captured Little Gibraltar. Tbe ac cotiut of' Nieolsicf, Kenoo, and Perckop' will be read with interest, now that the tide of war is likely to turn in tbst direction. The steppes between tbe but two places are thus desc...

The carnages used upon them an also very dis similar to ours; tbey an much longer, and are entered by a door at either cad, ao that one can walk right through them, and stand upon tbe little platform outside. Tbe pas ceageta, about fifty in each car, sit two and two, on rows of vu-a-vii sofas, or stuffed chairs, ranged right and left of a passage which runs down the centre. In cold weather a portion of the seau it removed to make room for a stove; in warm weather there is ample ventilation by meant of Ve netiu elides. It is hardly safe Sokeeptbe windo...

Local and Domestic Intelligence. ANOTHER assay of copper-ore from the recently worked W????ka mine gives a per centage of 36 copper. Mr G. Shenton has a button of cop- per extracted from the sample assayed, the largest specimen of Western Australian Copper yet ob- tained to assay. By advices from the northward, we learn that   about 40 tons of copper ore are now ready for   shipment, and it is expected the quantity will be   increased to 50 tons by the time the Empress   arrives. An inquest had been held upon some   human bones, supposed to be the remains of Mel- som, a man who disappeared suddently some time   since. It eventually transpired that the bones   were those of an aboriginal native.   THE approaching races have caused no little ex-   citement in the town, great sport being expected   in consequence of the number of horses entered, and the know...

The Sydney and London Electric Telegraph Company. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 2 April 1856

The Sydney and London Electric Telegraph Company. (From a Correspondent of the Sydney Morni rtq Herald.) When, some three years ago, we ventured to lay before the public a suggestion for connecting London and Sydney together by the means of the electric telegraph, the scheme was laughed at as being vi sionary and Utopian. Bat looking at die geography of the Old World, and reviewing die projects for railways and telegraphs then on foot, we felt con vinced of the feasibility of das project, and it now appears that it is about* to become a reality — that a Company has actually been formed in England for carrying it out This Company is called 'The Me diterranean Electric Telegraph Company from Len to Bombay, and from thence via Calcutta to Aus tralia.' It does not, however, appear that the route sketched out in die prospectus of this Company is die most desirable as regards die geography of die East and commercial advantages generally; still there may be reasons for it with which we on ...

Australian Farming. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 2 April 1856

Australian Farming*. The fact that a certain amount of capital is re quisite for success in fanning is apt to be overlooked by many who emigrate to a new country with a view of engaging in agricultural pursuits. Building, clearing, fencing, ploughing, stocking, &c, to say nothing of the expense of living until a crop is har vmstnU. nre all secondarv ennsitforatinns. the nrimc object being to secure a ' bit of land.' New comers with small means, or evea with large capital, aits warned against entering hastily into farming opera tions. Coming from an old country, where a high value is sst upon a small farm, they are likely to over-estimate the advantages of possessing a few acres in Australia, where millions of acres are value less except to serve the interests of a few, whose policy it is to keep them unappropriated and uu tilled. They should avoid all unnecessary expense in the purchase of fine furniture, &c, live econom ically, save their money, and make up their mi...

The City of Sydney. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 2 April 1856

The City of Sydney. The Municipal Corporation of the city of Sydney was, as our readers may probably remember, abolish ed about a year ago. It had degenerated into a mere publican's coterie ; and, having become famous for jobbing and mismanagement, it had sunk into gene ral contempt, aud was put an end to by an Act of Council. A commission was appointed in its Dlace. The first annual report of this commission has just been published, and the city of Adelaide may be in terested in comparing their own civic management with that of the Australian metropolis. The total revenue at the disposal of commissioners for the year has been £71,998, and their total expenditure £66,538. Of this expenditure, £9,000 was absorbed in salaries, no less than £8,600 falling to the share of the three commissioners, and £400 to the city solici tor. An addition of nearly £2,500 for instruments and furniture makes the total office expense amount to nearly £11,500, or rather less than one-sixth of the whole r...

Governor Kennedy's cows strayed to the farm of Mrs Gibbs, residing near Perth. Mrs .Gibbs, perceiving that they were milch cows, and fancying they belonged to one of the purchasers at a catUe sale held at set apart in the event of the cattle being claimed. Next morning, being unwilling to send the animals to pound, ehe allowed them to go oat with ber herd. In the mean time the Governor had sent a man to seek for the cows, and the man found them with Mrs Gibbs' herd. The Governor ordered a policeman to apprehend the poor cowherd, (who, if any one was wrong, was clearly innocent; the boy having eimply obeyed the orders of his mistress,) and lock liim up for the night This was done, and the child brought before the Police Magistrate the next morning, who very properly dismissed the case.

HOME AFFAIRS. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 2 April 1856

HOME AFFAIRS. The subject of crossed cheques still attracts con - siderablc notice in the City. A case in point has just occurred. A party lost a bag containing cheques, some crossed, others not, and various sums of money. The crossed cheques were immediately stopped, but, according to Lord Campbell's ruling, they might all have been easily negotiated. The trial of Davidson and Gordon, at the snit of Overend, Gurney, and Co., on the 8th of next month, is anticipated with much interest, and suggests how black a list of mercantile criminals has been gibbeted in print during the year just ended. Baron Parke is to be raised to the Peerage, with the title of Baron AmprtrilL The Speakership. — There is a rumour that Sir C. S. Lefevre, elected in 1839, is about to resign, and be raised to the Peerage. Sir F. Thesiger and Mr Fitzroy are said to be candidates. The salary is £6,000 a -year, with a peerage on retirement and a pension of £5,000 for three lives.
