The Bible-Burning Case. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 16 April 1856

The Bible-Burning Case It is with great reluctance that we touch any theo logical questions, but the Irish Bible-burning case, which ended last Saturday in the acquittal of Father Petcherine, involves considerations too important to admit of our passing it over in silence. According to one of our constitutional fictions the Bible is pait of the common law of England, although no judge in any court, civil or criminal, would allow the au thority of a bad Act of Parliament or a mischievous piece of judge-made law to be controverted and over thrown by Scriptural quotations, however apposite they might be. Upon the ground that the Bible and Christianity are part and parcel of our law, that law takes upon itself to deal with offences against either, not only as they affect the well-being of civil society, but as they relate to the honour of the Most High. To an enlightened and reverend mind, there is some thing revolting and appalling in poor weak men rush ing forward to punish the purely...

Awful Explosion in the Camp. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 16 April 1856

Awful Explosion in the Camp Nov. 15. — Just at 3 o'clock this afternoon one of the most extensive and appalling explosions of gunpowder, bombs, and artillery materials that has ever occurred since the commencement of the war, whether on the side of the allies or within the ' lines of Sphastnnnl i-nnh- nlam on the rifl-ht of OUT camp. A greater quantity of gunpowder itself may have been exploded in some of the magazines discharged for the destruction of the buildings and works after the abandonment of the ruined city and fortress ; but this is doubtful, and cer tainly there were never fired at the same time so great a number and variety of deadly and explo sive projectile!. The frightful character of the occurrence was greatly enhanced, too, by its iso lated aud unexpected nature, suddenly bursting oat in the very midst of the camps, at a time when all was supposed to be secure, and when the sounds of the bombardment, once loud and familiar enough, had dwindled down into occa sional ...

The Inquirer & Commercial News. Quid verum atque decens, curo et rogo, et omnis in hoe sum. WEDNESDAY, APRIL 16, 1856. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 16 April 1856

Quid verum. atgue deems, euro et rogo, et omtds in hoc turn. WEDNESDAY, APRIL 1«, 1856. Sutce the arrival of the fVUlinm Hammond we hare heard more than usual about female convicts. It has been freely stated that we are to be honoured by the importation of this delectable class, and the advocates for the introduction of these specimens of female frailty are proportionably dated at the glo rious news. Upon close inquiry, however, we discover no substantial reasons for the delight of one portion of the community, or for the fears of the other. We do not learn that the public despatches contain any allusion to the subject, nor can we glean from the substance of private communications that the opinions therein hazarded have any warranty based upon a reliable foundation. The matter seems to be precisely in the same position which it occupied previous to the receipt of the late English mails, and that position will be best understood by a brief survey of preceding events. It will be recol...

Sklbwm. The found Mail arrived in Perth, on Friday even ing, bnt has brought no news of importance. The contractor brought in a Email gold nugget which was picked np nearKojenup and some quartz said to be auriferous . We have, however, been so often deceiv ed by reports of this nature, which have eventually proved to be without foundation, or else die quantity of gold procurable has been so minute as not to en courage a farther search, that we must ascertain the result of future investigations before attaching any very great importance to die discovery. There had been no arrivals or departures of ships since the Daphne left. In that vessel die following passengers left for the adjoining colonies: — Mrs Mackay and die Misses Mackay (2); Mr Doughty and family, Mr James Guerin and others. The inhabitants of the district have memoralized the council praying for die repeal of die Kangaroo skin-tax, a tax which contributes nothing to the colo nial treasury norwas ever intended to do so, b...

The National Vice. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 16 April 1856

The National Vice. The Earl of Albemarle has undertaken the task of reforming the manners of the Eastern Counties. We heartily wish him success in his praiseworthy endeavors, and from the spirit in which he has commenced operations, and the hearty acquiescence in his views displayed bv his country neighbors, we should be disposed to anticipate favorable results. The great stain of social life in England among the humbler classes has been drunkenness. It is ' the Bottle ' which is the cause of three- fifths of the crime and poverty and misery perpetrated or endured by the English peasant and artisan. The judges of the land, the men of all others the most conversant with the pathology of crime, take even a larger pro portion. Lord Albemarle, in his address to his rus tic audience the other day at Banham, which was in serted in our columns a few days back, quoted the dicta of some among these great magistrates. *' Not a crime comes before me,' said Mr. Justice Coleridge, ' which is not...

Eastern Districts. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 16 April 1856

Eastern Districts. Sikce the receipt of our York correspondent's com munication of the 7th instant, we learn that the late rains have extended to die York, Northam and Toodyay districts, enabling the settlers to commence ploughing and causing the young feed to spring up. It is stated that limestone bas been found on Mr Morgan's grant, at Northam, and that specimens have been sent to Perth to be analysed. Should this be die fact it will be a fortunate discovery for that and the neighboring districts. Several ticket-of-leave men hare been arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the murder of Fitz Gerald, of whom, three are now in York gaoL One of the detenus had possession of die murdered man's hat when captured. It is generally believed that it will be necessary to offer a free-pardon to any confe derate not being the actual murderer, in order to ob tain the necessary information.

The Past Year. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 23 April 1856

The Fast Year. Dark indeed and discouraging were the prospects of the nation at the beginning of the year which we have just concluded. We had been nine months at war. We had entered upon the struggle full of the glorious memories of the last five years of our late contest with France, and in deep forgetfulness of the long course of mistakes and disasters which preceded them. We had won two great battles, but general ship had nothing to do with them, for in the first we walked directly into the snare which had been pre pared for us, and in the second we laid open the most vulnerable point of our army, so as to offer to our enemy an irresistible temptation to an all but ir resistible attack. Together with misgivings as to generalship, we were just beginning to entertain other doubts. Together with the letters of our cor respondent, thick and fast came the news of that neglect, disorder, and incapacity under which our } army was perishing before we, and possibly before i its own Gener...

EGYPT. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 23 April 1856

An interesting race was run last week at Cairo between an English mare and an Arab horse be longing to Haleem Pasha, when the former tho roughly beat the latter. The length of the race was eight miles, the time occupied by the mare IS5 minutes, over a rough, gravelly, and sandy road. The same rare has been offered for the last two years against all England, tor 10,000 sove reigns, with the same horse, and not accepted. The Egyptian Princes are now convinced that their Arabs can be beaten by English horses. The late Viceroy, Abbas Pasha, had offered to stake any amount up to £150,000 on his own horses ? against any others that might be brought to run. A serious insurrection has taken place in the Hedjaz, in Arabia, where the authority of the Sul- j tan is very feebly maintained by a very small : number of troops. The Arabs threaten to exp.l the Turks from the coast of the Red Sea, and de- ! niand that the English and French flags be pulled down, and all Europeans driven out of the co...

Com^onttenrc. t^'As a general rule, tee wish it to tie understood that we do not identify ourselves with the opinion or expression* of our correspondents. To the Editor of ' The Inqcibeb and COMMERCXAI. KEW6.' SIR, — In yoor journal of the 16th April you state that my servant requested Scott's ostler to take off my horse's bridle in watering him, and that I was -standing by at the time, thus causing ihe upsetting of my cart. Both statements are incorrect. I was not standing by at the time, and my servant did not tell Scott's ostler to take off my horse's bridle; the man did it of his own accord, and if the law could punish him, I think he deserves to be punished very severely, if only as a warning to others of his profession. Your obedient Servant, E. HAMERSIiEY.
