IRELAND. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 10 January 1856

IRELAND. Decmxe op tiif. Population".—A correspon dent of the Freeman''s Journal, who lias been making an agricultural tour in the • southern.' and western districts, writes as follows:—"Before I proceed to give an account of the state of the crops in the districts through which I have passed from Templcmore to Mullingar, let me announce the appalling fact—a fact which at this critical juncture is enough to make statesmen tremble for the safety of the empire. There are no men in the country—I mean young and ablebodied men, fit for any useful purpose. Whenever I am in a country town on a Sunday, I always take a peep into the various places of worship to see the con gregations of which they are composed. The mi litary attend ten o'clock mass at Templemorc, and there appeared to be a large number of them, but at this mass very few of the country people attend. It is at the twelve o'clock mass that the inhabi tants of the town and country assemble, and I recollect being in Templemore at...

LATEST EUROPEAN NEWS. THE ALLIES IN SEBASTOPOL. (From the Journal des Debats.) [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 10 January 1856

LATEST EUROPEAN NEWS, THE ALLIES IN SEBASTOPOL. CFrom the Journal des Debuts. ) Sbbastopo^ Sept. 30.—I mentioned to you in my last'letter that trains had been laid to blow up the arsenal and a considerable portion of Sevastopol. Everything was ready, and' nothing was wanting but the signal to begin, when a telegraphic despatch arrived conveying the order- to suspend the work of destruction till such time as the .telegraph should transmit the command to tliat effect. There is qufte time enough for the execution of such an order, and for the present the buildings about to be destroyed will be useful to the allied armies. The city still presents an aspect of desolation and solitude that appals the visitor. The firing-is not very brisk between the north and south sides of the town. The Russians scarcely fire 120 guns in 24 hours, and do us but little injury., There are in the town only a few artillerymen, necessary to work, the guns, and the guard pickets. A melan choly accident has jus...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. THE MUNICIPALITY. To the Landowners and Householders of the Municipal Districts of Sandhurst. (Per favor of the Editor of the Bendigo Advertiser.) [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 10 January 1856

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. THE MUNICIPALITY. To tlie Landowners nnd Householders of the Municipal • ■ ■ Districts of Snndlinrst. (Per favor of the Editor of the Jiendigo Advertiser.") Geptlemen,—It lias been presumed llmt by far the greater number of those among yon most interested are in favor of the establishment ol'a municipulily. Public improvements upon an extensive scale can, generally, be'carried out only by the uniied efforts of tlic inhabitants according to their menus. Hence the abso lute necessity, in ull settled imd .civilised communities, of an assessment and rates. In your case, however, considerable assistance will be given by grunt9 from the genoral revenue. ,To have supposed, then, that you are content to allow Sandhurst to remain in its present state—that its unen viublu notoriety for holes, and stumps, and dirt, and filth, shall continue—would have been little less than an insult to your understandings. A meeting has therefore been convened in accordance v. itli the...

NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 10 January 1856

NEW SOUTH WALES. We have received Sydney papers to the 2nd instant. The Penritii Victoria Bridge.—The open ing of the Victoria Bridge, built across the Nepean River at Penrith, was celebrated on the 1st of January, in a manner worthy of the accomplish ment of a great national work by private enter prise. It is a great national work, for the benefits and advantages to be derived from it will not be wholly or even chiefly secured to the inhabitants of the vicinity of Penrith. The great and long sought for object of a highway across the Nepeair,, into the great western interior of New South Wales, has been accomplished, and that by the zeal, energy, and perseverance of a few indivi duals, mostly identified with the locality in ques tion, and it will be long before the inhabitants of the district will cease to cherish the memory of New Year's Bay of 1850, and the glorious bene faction it conferred upon them.

DELIVERY OF MAILS. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 10 January 1856

I - DELIVERY OP MAILS. The following petition in reference to the absurd detention of the Melbourne Mails in the Sandhurst Post Office, has been drawn up for signature by the Inhabitants of the township. The petition by no means embodies all the circumstances of the case ; for not only must the letters from Melbourne be delivered on the evening of arrival, but letters for Melbourne by the following morning's mail must be received up to a late hour of night, in order to allow time for answering. A period of thirty minutes is too short a space of time for delivering letters, and it would, perhaps, be desirable that the hours of arrival and departure should be changed. The petition should have been originated at a public meeting of the citizens, who would have been better able to decide upon the terms in which it should be worded, and we would recom mend to the framers of the petition that they adopt this course.
