SOUTH AUSTRALIA. MERCANTILE REPORT. Thursday evening, January 10,1856. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 23 April 1856

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. MERCANTILE REPORT. Thursday evening, January 10, 1856. Trade generally is flat, and but little business has been transacted at the auctiou rooms this week. The supply of almost every description of goods from England during the last fortnight has been sufficient to replace what was becoming scarce, and when the bulk of farmers' work is done np the country a brisker town business may be expected. Meantime the chief trade moving is more in Eastern produce than in European merchandise. In the former we note the cargo of Mauritius sugar, ex Amiens, to be offered on Monday, when a brisk competition is ex pected. The first meeting was held to-day at Green's Ex change Room as a public corn market, and the atten dance of millers, farmers, exporters, and others in terested in the trade showed a lively interest in this new movement, so well calculated to bring both sel ler &sd buyer together, and facilitate the business of both. 10,000 bushels of wheat are reported to...

The War in Asia. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 23 April 1856

The War in Asia. The fall of Kars has had, at any rate, this good result — that it it has at last drawn public atten tion to the theatre of those operations to which it has succumbed, and taught us the importance at tached by a vigilant and skilful enemy, thoroughly acquainted both with the grouisd and the peo ple, to a remote position, with which the British public has scarcely cared to make itself acquainted. Nobody can doubt the vast importance attached by the Czar to the preservation of Sebastopol, and of the fleet which sleeps beneath the waters of its harbour. The unceasing exertions and dreadful sacrifices of Eussia attest it only too welL To save the place was the point of honour of the empire — the one object, compared with which all others seemed puny and insignificant. Yet, even in this crisis of his destiny, the Emperor of Russia could despatch probably his best General and an army whose bravery is only too well attested isy its enormous and almost incredible losses on t...

Admiral Stirling and the Pacific Squadron. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 23 April 1856

Admiral Stirling and the Pacific Squadron. The naval operations in the Pacific, under Admiral Stirling's command, have been singularly unsatisfac tory. There can be no donbt that bad ordinary dili gence been used there was a moment when the Rus sian squadron was fairly in the power of the English fleet On the morning of Sunday. 20th of May, the Russian squadron was found at anchor in a position at the head »f Castries Bay— a spot which may be found in the maps at 51 deg. 27 min. JS. lat, 141 deg. E. long. They consisted of ihe Aurora, 44 ; Olenitza, 22; Dwina, 20; Vostock, 5; a brigantine of 3 guns; and a large sWp, supposed to be die Kamtschatka storeship. of 8 guns. Here at length was die coveted prize within the grasp of the British cruisers; but, unluckily, the English force which bore down upon them, consisted only of the SybUle, 40; Hornet, 17 (screw;) and Bittern, 12. Under these circumstances Commodore Elliott, who was in command of the little squadron, jndged it impracti ca...

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

Royal Geographical Society, Dec. 11. — Dr. Shaw read a letter from Mr John Kent, RR.G.S-, dated Sydney, August 12, 1855, giving information respecting the North American Expedition, which left Moreton Bay hi August last in the Monarch barque and Tom. Tough schooner, under the command of Mr Gregory, accompanied by his brother and Messrs. Baines, Wilson, Muller, Elsey, Flood, and fourteen men, with 50 horses, 200 sheep, and provi sions and stores for two years. Mr Windsor Earl accompanied the expedition as far as the mouth of the Victoria, in order to afford in any assistance in his power from his enlarged experience of South Australia. The Tom Tough has been engaged to wait in attendance upon the expedition as long as required. Mr Kent alludes to the departure from the original plan, in omitting to take bullocks and drays, which he holds to be very essential; but con siders the party well selected, mentioning in particn lar the two Gregorys, Mr Baines, and Mr Wilson, as men well adap...

The Inquirer & Commercial News. Quid verum atque decens, curo et rogo, et omnis in hoc sum. WEDNESDAY, APRIL 23, 1856. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 23 April 1856

Quid vertan atque deceits, euro et rogo, et omnis in hoc sum. WEDNESDAY. APRIL 23, 1856. Last week we stated that a small specimen of gold, procured at no great distance from Kojenup, had been brought into town. We did not attach much importance to the cir cumstance, as it has long been known that specimens of quarts, containing minute quantities of the precious metal, have been discovered within the limits of this territory, and the sample exhibited by Mr Chipper was not considered superior to others previously collected and submitted to view. Since then another piece of quartz has I been picked up, and in a more favourable lo cality, at a distance, we believe, of not more than fourteen or fifteen miles from Fre mantle. It is of a richer description than any which has hitherto been found, contain ing (the specimen was not a large one) gold to the value of several shillings. The first discovery did not create any stir, the second has, however, caused more commotion, and the probabil...

[Advehtisemest.] — Fevers of all descriptions and their cure. — Many remedies have been prescribed for tbe relief of suffering humanity for the cure of these distressing and often times fatal diseases.

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

The Australian Colonies For a long period the pati nee of the colonists in Australia and their friends at home has been sorely tried by the Postal arrangements. Project has suc ceeded to project, each proving a failure; promises have been made which have not been kept, contracts entered into which have not been fulfilled, and. in a word, nothing has been wanting to complete the an noyance of all therewith connected. No doubt all the parties concerned in the matter were sincere in t*ieir wish to further the public good, inasmuch as that was identical with their own interests; but some how they have all failed. Our readers will remember we have often reasoned on the ' Rule of- Three principle. If ten or twelve days, on the average, will suffice to steam from Liverpool to New York, a distance of 3,000 miles, five times the period, other things being equal, should suffice to steam live times the distance, in which the voyage ought to be made, on an average, from 50 to 55 days.

Colonel Shaffner and the War. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 23 April 1856

Colonel Shaffner and the War Europe may feel satisfied that at length we have got upon the traces of the ' Great un nown' who discharged the duties of literary assistant to Mr Bar num with such eminent success. Colonel TaL P. Shaffner is the man. It would be hard indeed tnat he should be defrauded of laurels so justly woo, but he may feel well assured that we all recognize the master mind and cunning hand which assisted in rearing the stately superstructure of his patron's fortunes. There is no evidence like internal cviden ae after all. Testimony may be fabricated —stories may be forged — but it is only the same pen that achieved the former triumphs which can 'produce another masterpiece of the like kind. Our friend the Colonel has tuken leave for a time of the Feejee Mermaid and the woolly Horse, — he has abandoned the pretentions of General Tom Thumb for a yet loftier theme. From the service of Mr Barnuni he has passed into the service of the Russian Czar, and we are bound to say...

Local and Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 23 April 1856

^Socdjnd^emcsti^Jiitcnigeucq. Messes Barnard and M. Stokes, who have both earned experience in the gold-producing countries, started with the Albany mail carrier for the purpose of examining closely the spot from whence ! was taken the auriferous quartz discovered by Smith the policeman, aud brought in by Chipper. : They took with them a months provisions, and are well supplied with the necessary tools. We hear that the locality supposed to contain Gold is situate about 70 miles from Perth, and that there is a good supply of water close at hand. On Sa turday we saw a good specimen of gold quartz picked up by Mr Henry Davis between Cardup and his farm, on the Canning. The known charac ter of Mr Davis is sufficient to remove any sus picion of a hoax, as that gentleman is superior to the perpetration of so puerile a jest and we may therefore safely assume that the quartz brought by him really was taken from the place above named. If tto, it is one of the best— the bast indeed — sam- pl...

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

Modern Rome. Over against Balliol College, in one of the most public places of Oxford, there stands a monument erected by the piety of modern ages to commemorate one of tbe greatest events which has occured since human beings bare formed themselves into societies. The artist, with great skill and singular success, has carved in enduring stone the features of those great   paladins of our religion who upon that spot laid down their lives in torments to secure liberty of con- science in after ages to their fellow-countrymen and their fellow-creatures. Life in England is so fully occupied in the Senate, in the forum, in the market places, that few but professed students care to delve in the dark chambers of history, and to labor among dusty records and old dates. The toil, however, is not always without reward. Strange suggestions and contrasts are brought to light by confronting the present with the past. It is now within a few days of three centuries back that stout old ...

Adulteration of Government. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 30 April 1856

Adulteration of Government Lord John Russell, political draggist, late of Vienna, stated that he had had con siderable experience in the practice of adul teration, more particularly in political drugs, Had examined several samples of Whig Go vernment, and found them all perfectly pure. Absolute purity in most cases was unattain able, but the articles he had exercised his microscopic skill upon were as free from de leterious matter as they could be, and he doubted strongly, if they were made purer, whether the people of this country would like them naif so well. He had found the specimen marked ' Reform Bill' extremely difficult to analyze. The difficulty principally lay in ascertaining precisely its 'consti- tuent' parts. He had been several years intent upon solving its various antagonistic elements, and he should persevere several years longer, until he clearly saw a proper settlement of them, though, as one of the old school, he was strongly averse to pre cipitating anything.

Pitcairn's Island. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 30 April 1856

Piteaim's Island. Captain M'Arthur, of the barque SoutJtem Cross, reports that when off Pictairn's Island, on the 1st November last, he was boarded by a boat containing twelve natives, who invited him and Dr Cams, a passenger by the barque, to go on shore. Having accepted the invitation they went on shore, where they were met by a great num ber of the islanders, who treated them with the greatest attention. The Eer. G. Hume Nobbs, the resident clergyman on the island, in a most hospitable manner entertained the visitors, and with them visited the house built by Mr John Adams, the founder of iihe island ; also his grave. Among the natives introduced to Captain M'Ar thur and Dr Cams was the daughter of Mr Ad ams, an old lady aged about sixty, upon whom, as well as many others, the doctor displayed bis talents as a dentist. The islanders were anxious to learn, something of Norfolk Island, more par ticularly as they had heard that Captain M' Ar- thur, with the Southern Cross, had on one...
