Early History of Hung-siu-Tsuen, The Chinese Rebel Chief. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 9 April 1856

Early History of Hung-siu-Tsuen, The Chinese Rebel Chief (FROM THE CHINESE REBEL CHIEF; AND THE ORIGIN OF THE INSURRECTION IN CHINA.) The native place of Hung-Siu-tsnen is a small village in the Hwa-hien district, in the southern province of Kwang-tung. Its distance from the city of Canton is about thirty English miles; and the country in this direction forms an extensive plain, covered with paddy fields, and| interspersed with numerous villages. The ' Whitecloud Moun tains,' near Canton, may, on a clear day, be seen from thence. Sin -tsaen's ancestors having moved hither from Kia-jing -chau, and speaking the Eia-jing-chau dialect, their descendants, and all other Chinese who have moved down to settle in the southern part of the Kwang-tung province, are by the abo rigines, or Funti people, known under the name of Hakkas (Kheh-kia), or settlors. The Chinese adhere strictly to the customs of their forefathers; they spend their whole lives in unceasing toil to procure a bare sup port, ...

The Inquirer & Commercial News. Quid verum atque decens, curo et rogo, et omnis in hoc sum. WEDNESDAY, APRIL 9, 1856. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 9 April 1856

$he Jnquii[erL & Commercial D^u?s. Quid verum atque deceits, euro et rogo, et omnis in hoc sum. ' WEDNESDAY, APRIL 9, 1856. It was with much concern that the people of this Colony heard that recent intelligence from England contained no intimation of the renewal of free emigration to Western Aus tralia. Neither in private correspondence, or in the official despatches, does it appear that even an allusion has been made to this, to us, most important subject. Our first care, and, we may add, that of the Imperial Government of the day, was, when the province was converted into a penal settlement, to secure such an amount of free immigration, that the bond and free element of our population might, as nearly as possible, be balanced ; and, in order that the social evils, necessarily consequent upon the disproportion of the sexes, might be averted, it was more particularly desired that among the emigrants should be included a number of single women. For some time we had no reason ...

EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE Omer Pasha in Mingrelia. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 9 April 1856

EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE Omer Pasha in Mingrelia. Sugdidi, Nov. 14. — Hitherto we have not been able to calculate upon receiving any assistance from the people of the country through which we have passed, and, although confidence is gradually beginning to be restored among the Mingrclians, and they arc bringing meat and vegetables in small quantities into camp for sale, still in our onward progress we depend entirely upon our commissariat lbr supplies. It is to be hoped that before very long our depots of provisions will be moved to some line upon die coast nearer the scene of operations, and that we may be enabled to draw our supplies either from Amaklea or Redout Kaleh. Even now the roads to those places are reported free of Russians, and the force which was watching Redout Kalch, when I visited it two months ago, has now retired. We may, there fore, hope soon to see die Rhion made available for purposes of transport. I rode down to the old fortress of Ruchi a few days ago to look at...

Dinner to Sir C. Napier. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 16 April 1856

Dinner to Sir C- Napier. On Tuesday night a numerous body of (he supporters of Sir C. Napier met at the Bridge-house Hotel, to celebrate his return for the borough of Southwark; Mr Vickers in the chair. In the course of his speech, Sir C. !Napier said — ' That he truly went into the Baltic on a voyage of discovery, for he assured ihem all that when he went to the Gulf of Finland he did not know where to turn — whether to ; the right band or to the left. He was with out charts and pilots, and had men who were picked up about the streets, and hardly knew their right hand from their left. (Hear.) tie was an agent of the Government, but instead of having to deal with wise men of business, who would inquire and learn from . him the difficulties of the position, he was ignotniniously dismissed, and not a single question of the kind was put to him. (Hear.) On the contrary, his chief received him in the most insolent manner. But even if he had done wrong, that was no reason why his inferior...

Sir R- Peel on Peace.Negociations At a dinner held at Uurton-upon-Trent, on Wednesday, 5th, Sir II. Peel said:— ' We heard rumours of a peace, which, was to be brought about by the intervention of Austria. (Hear, bear.) Now, this was ! a subject very interesting to them all, as it came home to their breasts, and affected the interests of each individual. There were, 1 then, some ideas of a peace. The funds were t rising, and the hopes of the public were j raised at the idea of a peace which was to j be brought about through the intervention j of Austria. Now, they all anxiously de sired peace; but the danger was tbatthat : very desire led them hastily to attach ini- ; portance to prospects not unfrequently based on shallow foundations. (Hear, hear.) His idea was that there was little importance to be attached to these rumours of peace. ( Hear hear.) He admitted the importance of peace, and, with every one else, would be glad to tee it re-established; and to this end he would say, so...

Cronstadt for Kars. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 16 April 1856

Cronstadt for Kara Toe news of the fall of Kars has produced a most painful impression. No deed that die Allies could do was more important than that of crashing Russian power in die Caucasian and Transcaucasian region. It was of the greatest coiueauence, politically, mor tally, and stratagctically. It could have been ac complished with ease, but Omer's brave army of the Danube was dismissed and disorganized, and he him self—die only real general in the war — kept in use less idleness at Eupatoria until the precious time was lost, and lib arrival in Asia was too late to save die devoted city. At the door of the English Cabinet lies die fearful guilt of enabling the enemy to win this victory. Is there in this unhappy country neither die instinct ot self-preservation nor the sense of danger? Shall indignation sleep for ever? Is justice paralysed, and retribution dead? Eternal honour to those who did defend Kars with bravery unsurpassed, and endurance beyond belief; but to those by who...

Camp before Sebabk-poi«, Nov. 24. — Scarcely had the ink dried on the paper of my letter before the weather, which I had been praising for its extra ordinary fineness, suddenly changed, and with a ra niditv of transition onlv known in die Crimea, as I am aware, rushed from summer to winter.

Effect of the War upon Russia. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 16 April 1856

Effect of the War upon Russia The following letter, dated the 28th alt, has been recived from Russian Poland: — ' In spite of all difficulties, in spite of all precau tions, we occasionally learn sufficient to form an opinion of die misery into which tie war has plunged Russia. The Chamber of Public Relief of St Peters burgh has been obliged to sell by auction die pio perty on which it had made advances, but which it was impossible for the borrowers to pay when the moment arrived ; and the number of insolvent debtors increases daily. The population itself has suffered from this state of things. A census has been taken of the male population, and, though four years have passed since the last, yet the number remains still the same. On certain points of the empire it is less than in 1851, owing doubtless, to the nnmeroas levies since then. It is not die loss on the field of battle which is solely the cause of this decrease; the general health of the army has much to do with it, and die...

Prince Albert Caught. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 16 April 1856

Prince Albert Caught. Fob some years past it has been confidently assert ed in army circles that His Royal Highness Prince Albert exerted a powerful, and by no means unob jectionable, influence on questions of promotion and other military matters. Lately it appears that either his Roval Highness's opinions have been overruled in some particular, or that he only discovered, after a beneficial change had been made, that it was con trary to the principles he has thought proper to es pouse. The facts will be learnt by reading die sub joined extracts from an article in the Times; bat what can die people think of Prince Albert, the Queen's husband, heading a memorial emanating from a few discontented officers belonging to a branch of the army that has been most unjustly petted and favoured, and begging on behalf of die Guards, in one of whose regiments he holds a Colonelcy, a re consideration of an order, the propriety of which will be generally felt?

A Respectable Criminal. Sib John Paul and bis partners, Messrs.

Of course, at this stage of die proceed ings it is our duty to abstain from all remark upon the evidence yesterday produced, which most be left for the consideration of a jury.

As many of our readers as desire more exact information upon the subject need only tarn to our police report of this day, and they will there find an account of the pro ceedings in fall detail.
