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

#asse. The last of the American ships left the bay on the 12 h ult, and it is not expected that any more will make their appearance this season. Altogether, there have been seventeen vessels in Geographe Bay during the summer, including a vessel ?with a cargo of Timor ponies from Lombok, and bound for Hobart Town. The name of this craft was the Lady Lee, McFarlane, master, and she put in heie for water, hay, and corn, the latter of which were supplied by Mr Heppingstone. The ponies :had been on short commons, and were very low m condition, a Dng antine, with English colours, put into the Bay a short time since, but die master would not suffer any one to come on board; she remained one night, and then cleared out. Had the place a proper go vernment establishment, this vessel would have been boarded by the authorities, but there is no boat fct their disposal, and the whale-boat belonging to one of the whalers in harbour was, as before stated, or dered off. The whale ship which sailed ...

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

POSTSCRIPT. CRIMEA.— Sebabtopol, Dec. 11. — The mono tony of life in this huge military colony has been broken slightly by die appearance of die Russians on die heights of Ourkutsk, and by some demonstrations of an intention on tiieir part to try the strength of die French positions on die Baidar Valley. It would be of great consequence to them and of some detriment to us. if tiiev succeeded in refstrictiner the. ground covered by our outposts, which now affords fuel to the army and food for cattle, and it is not at all impossible that whenever the state of die country admits of the movement of materiel the attempt of Sunday last will be repeated on a larger scale As the French have retired in die presence of winter, die enemy have tiirown forward tiieir advanced posts at Kolnlnz and Markoul to die north-east, and from Aitodor and Ozembash to die north of Baidar.

EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE To the 2nd January. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 2 April 1856

EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE To the 2nd January. By the William Hammond, convict shjp, we have received our regular files to the above date, and extract the principal items for this week's issue. The intelligence is not of a very stirring nature, nor may we expect to receive any very important news until the opening of the spring campaign. The fate of Kars appears to engage the principal share of public attention, and the allies are much blamed for not making some effort to succour its brave garrison, and to arrest the evil consequences which must result by the capture of this frontier post. Next to the capitulation of Kars, the attempts to negotiate form the chief topic for discussion in the newspapers. It seems, however, to be generally admitted that the time has not yet arrived for peace, and that peace will not be the result of the winter conferences, although the attempt may serve to amuse diplomatists and the public until the time arrives for the prosecution of active warfare. Some l...

THE WAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 2 April 1856

THE 'WAJEl. Sebastopol, Dec. 10. — Another spy has just been taken near the Monastery, where he has been in the habit of making night signals to the Rus sians by bonfire* and rockets. I have been told (and the authority seems good) that the docks at Sebastopol will be blown up in the Christmas week. The delay is owing to the necessity for building a bomb-proof to shelter tie man who will fire the train. A very excellent plan is about to be followed out, for which General Codringfcon deserves the greatest praise. Canteens will soon be established, under the charge of a noncom missioned officer, in each regiment, and our Greek canteen-keepers, and such other adulterators, will be banished the peninsula. Mr Russell, the Times' special correspondent, and Mr Angell, of the Posfc Office, dined with General Codringtou on Thurs day. Owing to some strictures made by Mr Russell in the Times on drunkenness in the army, and bis advising the withdrawal of the soldiers' field allowance granted by...

Western Australian Races. FIRST DAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 2 April 1856

Western Australian Races. FIRST DAY. Tbe weather was everything that could be de sired, and the race course was in consequence well attended. Every saddle-hack and vehicle in the town was in requisition, and there was no incon siderable number of pedestrians. From the num ber of horses entered, some good racing was expected, but. on the whole, the running was not bo good as on former occasions. It was anticipated that die contest for the Maiden Plate would be a severe one, Socket and Comptroller being the favourite horses. The pace, however, was nothing out cf the way, the time being 2 min. 18 sec., and Socket soon took the lead in either heat, and kept it ; coming in an easy winner by several lengths. The principal running was between the second and third horses, Beppo and Comptroller. Beppo was an un doubted second for the first heat, and was placed by the judge in that position for the second heat, ' although there was much difference of opinion as to whether he was entitled to i...

[MB. BIBNIES EEPLY.l Perth, 27th March, 1856. bill, — In reply to your proposal, 1 beg to re mind you of an important omission in matters of business, viz., — Pay. 'More than ordinary talent' is a flattering eu logy ; — it merits more than ordinary wages. By the lecture I gave last year you must have cleared at least £50. I received not even, the barren compliment of thanks. Zhave shown you what I can do, and you have shewn me what I must expect to suffer, viz., in sult within your walls, and foul abuse without. This last you never disowned, but crowned by a most insolent letter. I care not for malignity — too imbecile even to provoke — but I do not choose to be upheld at Home as one who, despite warnings before and experience after, courts notoriety, and vainly strives to make the world better by polishing sa vages and preaching refinement to convicts. My terms are 10 guineas, and I do not want you to accede to them. Yonrs, &c, B. BIBN3E. Secretary Mechanics' Institute. Mec...

To the Editor of *' The Ikquikee and Commercial Sews.' SIR, — Some little time ago, an old native, of threescore and ten, told me he was alone in the world, as men of other tribes had murdered the last of his relations about six months before, fie spoke this with apparent feeling. Another young fellow came to me, and begged that I would inter cede for his brother, who had just been taken by the police ; stating, apparently with true earnest ness, that it was his only brother, and that if he should die in gaol, there would be none left to care for him : his father and mother, and all other relatives, having long since gone the way of all flesh. Now, is it not strange that a Christian Go vernor should allow a race of men, endowed natu rally with such feelings as I have described, and who are British subjects, to murder each other in...

MILITARY PREPARATIONS IN RUSSIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 9 April 1856

MILITARY PREPARATIONS IN RUSSIA. The Kreuz Zeitung contains the following pas sage:— ' At the most important points of the coast we are occupied in building admirable mortar-bats and erect ing coast batteries, with new gnns of unusual long range, and with troops both in camp and in canton ments ; nothing is neglected to make them as ready for action as possible. The complete training of the dras chincs and of the recruits that have last ioined is ma king rapid progress. This great addition of active fight ing men, hardened to every kind of fatigue, cannot fail to raise the army of Russia to a degree of excel lence next spring such as it has never before reach ed. The sanitary state of the troops is excellent and the spirit that animates this colossal family of warriors perfectly unique. Ever since the surface of snow became covered with a crust of ice, and convey ance by sledge has revived traffic in the interior, enormously long trains of sledges — often nine versets long — are for...

^ocat mid geittestiq Jfntetlitjeuce. The meeting of the Turf Club, advertised for the 2nd inst., was adjourned until the following day, in consequence of the non-attendance of members, bat we do not hear that any business of import ance was transacted at the adjourned meeting. It is intended, we believe, to let the race course enclosure to any party desirous of patting it un der crop. Formerly it was used as a horse run, but so much mischief had been done that the Committee have resolved no longer to permit its being thus employed. The non-commissioned officers of the detachment of the 12th Regiment have resolved upon giving a ball at the barracks, which is to take place this evening. His Excellency the Governor and the principal inhabitants of the town have been requested to attend, and, we believe, the Governor has signified his intention of being present. We hope and anticipate that the evening's amusement will be everything its promoters can desire. It will have been observed th...

Russian News from New York* A Col. Shafincr, who has just returned from Rus sia, having made several valuable contracts, amuses the New Yorkers and others with a very veracious account of the condition of that country, from which we extract a few plums. They may be compared with die narrative of die equally veracious Dr. I)a vega: — 'The nobility are not tired of the war; they are among its most strenuous and ready supporters. and have signified their willingness again and again to sacrifice all their wealth before they will consent toyield an inch. There is only one sentiment among them, and that is a determination to carry ou the war so long as there is a rouble in the treasury or a man to shoulder a musket.
