Statistics of Tobacco. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 30 April 1856

Statistics of Tobacco. Some of our readers may not be prepared for die fact that tobacco, though not food for man or beast, is the most extensively used of all vegetable produc tions, and next to salt the most generally consumed of all productions whatever — animal,, vegetable, or mineral — on the face of the globe. In one form or other, bnt most commonly in that of fume or smoke, it is partaken 'by saint, by savage, and by Bage;** there is no climate, from the equator to the pole, in which it is not used; there is no nation that has de clined adopting it Europeans, except in the extreme East, are allowed to be the most moderate con sumers, in consequence of its being with them gene rally an article of import and of heavy taxation; while their form of civilization agrees to refuse fte luxury to the gentler sex. And among Europeans our own nation figures as one of the lowest in pro portion to the population; yet the official returns prove that the annual consumption, hen is on aa ave...

Canadian Railways and Canadian Prosperity. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 30 April 1856

Canadian Railways and Canadian Prosperity. One of tbe questions frequently put to candidates during the present election is, ' Are you favorable to public loans for reproductive works?' and indeed there are few ques tions which better deserve the attention both of constituen cies and candidates, and which arc more intimately con nected with the prosperity of the colony. That loans for public works are politic investments of die public credit is now generally admitted by those who take a large and libe ral view of affaire ; and notwithstanding a natural preju dioe against national debts, there is an increasing disposi tion in all rising countries to contract than. The national debts of tbe European States have in too many caeca baea contracted for useless and even injurious purposes— &r tbe PiaintMMiw. of idle and Insurious courts— for the support | of a large standing army to keep down Hie riaine nationality of the people—or for eoBfly and wasteful wars.

The Imperial Guard. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 30 April 1856

The Imperial Guard The body which in France bears the name of Im perial Guard was called into existence more than 50 years ago. It first surrouuded a Republican Con sul, but it was not until the founder called himself Emperor, and meditated the conquest of Europe, that it assumed its great proportions, and the matchless discipline which has given it an enduring fame. In the great battles of the later Empire the Guard was always conspicuous; as the enemies of France learnt skill and stubbomess from defeat and grew every day more a match for the conquerer, the service of the Guard were more an-l more a sad necessity. Both Sovereign and people looked upon them with bound less favour and admiration. It was the Guard to which Napoleon bade farewell at Fontainebleau, and the feeling was requited by the unflinching devotion of Waterloo. With this last catastrophe its days «f glory closed, and during a generation it was un known to France. The present Emperor bad not been long in power befo...

His Exeellency the Governor-General (Sydney) has directed the publication, for general information, of the following report of the proceedings of the North Australian Expedition, from 12th August to 24th September last: — ' North Australian Expedition, ' Victoria River, North Australia, 'Sept. 24, 1855. 'Sir — I have the honour to transmit, by the Mo narch, via Singapore, an abstract of the proceedings of the North Australian Expedition to the present date. ' On the 12th August the expedition left Moreton Island, and on the 13th entered the inner passage to Torres Straits. After a somewhat tedious passage we reached Albany Island on the 26th, sighted Port Essington on the 1st ~ept, and cleared Clarence strait at noon the following day; bnt, owing to the great indraught of the deep indentations of the coast, the Monarch so greatly deviated from the direct course, that at 10 p.m. she grounded ou the northern reef in the entrance of Port Patterson, and with...

Victoria. (By the Correspondent of the & A. Eeglster.) The Roman Catholics have announced their in tention to complete the fine Cathedrtl Church of St. Patrick, on the Eastern Hill, Melbourne, with out delay. They aie also about to commence an episcopal palace for the Bishop on the same re serve, which is very laige.

EXPLORATION OF NORTHERN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 30 April 1856

EXPLORATION OF NORTHERN AUS TRALIA. The first intelligence from Mr Gregory's expedition, which started from Sydney in July last, reached Melbourne a few days back in a letter from Dr. Mueller, the Government Botanist at Victoria. The only particular!), however, yet received of the actual commencement of the journey through the interior are contained in the subjoined extracts from a pri vate letter which appeared in a Melbourne paper: — Mouth of Victoria river, Indian Ocean, September 21, 1855, ' Dear Brother and Sister— I avail myself of this, the only opportunity of writing you a rough outline of our journey from Sydney to the present time. u We made a very fine passage to Moreton Bay in. *l§ hours; arrived on the 31st July, bat owing to tbe barque Monarch getting on the sandbanks, ob liged us to remain in that place twelve days.

Local and Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 30 April 1856

It is reported that a tramroad, connecting South Bay with the River, will shortly be constructed, the advisers and promoters of the plan supposing that the landing, carting, and re-shipment o! goods can be done more speedily and with less expense to the merchant than were direct water-carriage from the ship to Perth alone employed. Some foolish people run away with the notion that- water carriage is the cheapest and best means of convey ance, and propose the deepening of the channel of the River, and the enlargement of the opening at the bar, and they appeal to universal experience and the recorded opinions of eminent writers in favour of their views. Perhaps it would be ad visable so far to consult popular prejudice as to (merelyof course toprove the fallacyof such a mea sure) render the river navigable in the first instance, and then, when the merchant and consumer have had practicable demonstration of the heavy cost involved by having their supplies direct from the ship to their ...

The proposal of the Home Government to resume steam communication with the Co lonies, upon the terms mentioned in the Treasury minute, does not appear to have satisfied the neighbouring settlements, nor does there seem to be much prospect of an amicable adjustment of terms among colo nies whose interests are so conflicting and diverse. Victoria all but rejects the scheme, New South Wales will entirely do so. South Australia is, however, more complaisant, and the Colonial Secretary has given notice of motion, in the event of the passing of the monthly steam postal bill, to the effect that the House agrees to concur in any arrange ment for the transmission of mails to Aus tralia, notwithstanding the ignoring of South Australia by the passing on of the mail steamers to other colonies, because it does not wish to throw any impediment in the way ...

New South Wales We have Sydney journals to the 5th inst ' The French authorities have at length deter mined to throw open die lands at New Caledonia for settlement The terms have not yet been made public, but 1 believe that they an vorr liberal, and snehas are calculated to encourage the settlement of bonafide colonists, and to prevent land-jobbing. There is, I understand, to be a small deposit, which will be forfeited unless the land be settled upon and improved within a given tune; but, if improvements are made, time will be given propotttonate to their extent for die payment of the balance.

Mr. Gladstone and our Colonial Dependencies. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 30 April 1856

Mr- Gladstone and our Colonial Dependencies. TTimes.1 With some elegance and felicity, if with no very striking power or originality, Mr Gladstone has ex pounded to the notables of the ancient city of Chester the history of our colonial system, and the present state of opinion with regard to tbe government of tiependencies. The *u»-ject6 on which he touched are in themselves eo interesting, and involvs considerations fo intricate and so profoind, that one is disappointed to find a statesman of Mr Gladstone's promise and position can contribute nothing new to their elucidation, bat is obliged to content himself with adorning commonplace idea* by clear arrangement and weU-chosen language. In case Mr Giadetoae should jield ©nee more to die entreaties of an audience anxious to bear from nim an account of the colonies, their gorerflineDt, and ibeir prospects, we venture to submit to him a few questions, a little light on which is still much desired,, and which, although very unsuitable f...

Turkey. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 30 April 1856

Turkey. Abstract reforms are little likely to engage the minds of a people who are thinking chiefly of re cruiting for another campaign, and providing boats and batteries to attack with new weapons fortresses defended by the newest science. Least of all are Englishmen likely at such a time to approach will ingly the tangled skein of Turkish politics, or to at tempt a change in institutions where it seems that any movement must precipitate a falL The inter ference which they know must come, the responsi bility which they must one day assume, are all men tally deferred until a successful peace has given the leisure and authority necessary for a great task. Yet there is no reason that all political action should be suspended by hostilities. There is, perhaps, too much of this at home. Lawyers who have nothing to do with the war make unnecessary speeches about it, and affect to think that the present is not the time for pressing legal changes. Education fares as bad ly; the reformers of...

EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE To the 8th January. The arrival of the Austrian ambassador at St. Petersburg, with the terms of peace proposed iy Austria, and acceded to by the Western Powers, terminates the first act of the drama of negotia tion. We may uow be considered to have ad vanced some way into th? second act, but as yet the stage is occupied by exits and entrances, which may, or may not, be significant of coming events, and by a mysterious pantomime in the style of the famous Lord Burleigh. Diplomatic agents have been moving to and fro; various rumors and sug gestions have been given out, with more or less of ' authority,' in different quarters ; and expecta tions of a pacific settlement are again raised in tbe fcce, as usual, of most suBpiaoos -£raunsUnooBio . file contrary. .Tracing these shows of action in the order of their occurrence we find the Saxon minister In Paris, Baron Beebaeh, making s communication, the nature of which has not transpired, to tin ' French government, an...

The Daphne arrived safe, and is to return to your Colony in the course of a day or so, and the Lochinvar is to sail for Leschenault in a fortnight. Tlie weather, after greater heat than I have known in March for some time past, has commenced to break up, and we have heavy thunderstorms with much rain; this so early in the year gives promise of a good sowing season.
