SYDNEY MARKETS. TUESDAY, 10TH APRIL. 1855. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 1 August 1855

SYDNEY MARKETS. Toesdat, IOih April. 1855. Yesterday and to-day have brought us some rather heavy additions to our stocks of imported manu factures. Two vessels from England, of a united burden of 2561 tons, uave*arrived with general car goes. A ship from Hamburg, 600 tons, has also brought a general cargo; and two arrivals from Humboldt Bay, (California), have added 50,000 feet of lumber to our timber market. One effect of the greatly augmented price of batcher's meat has been to raise the price of hides and tallow, which articles of produce now command figures on the spot fully equal to what were ruling, as per last advices, in die English market.* Such is the demand of die colonial manufacturers on our present supply, both for candles aad leather, that good beef tallow has fetched £57 10s and £58, while die same quality at late London sales only netted £55 to £56, and hides in the Sydney market have realised 14s, fully equal to the English net price A fine sample of tallow, a few...

djotoniat ^niettirjencc. SOUTH AUSTRALIA. By the ' Champion' private letters have been re ceived from South Australia bearing date the 29th June. Governor Sir Richard McDonnell had ar rived via Melbourne. He took his passage from the latter place in the ' Burra Burra' steamer, which vessel, experiencing very heavy weather, was fourteen days making the trip, and had to put in at Portland. The Governor is well liked at present. There was a grand Masonic Ball at the Theatre in aid of the Patriotic Fund. The new Governor, who is one of the craft, was pre sent. Altogether, about 500 people were present, and, aa the theatre could only contain comfortably 500, the^ visitors were somewhat crowded. Only Masons, and the wives and families ot Masons, were admitted. The Patriotic Fund did not gain by this laudable attempt, as the Stewards were each liable for £10 when the cost of the enter tainment was reckoned up. Potatoes were selling in Adelaide at 33s. per bag of 100 lbs., and not likely to...

The Attempted Assassination of Louis Napoleon. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 1 August 1855

? w — The Attempted Assassination of Louis Napoleon./ Ok what slender chances do tthe destinies of nations hang !

It was but a week ago that the Emperor was among us, proud of our welcome and of our homage, prouder still of the lovely lady who sat by his side as he passed along our streets, radiant withillununations, gay with flaunting banners, and swarming with crowds, met by thousands and tens of thous...

The Vienna Conferences. VIENNA, APRIL 24 [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 1 August 1855

? + ? The Vienna Conferences. VIENJNA, April 24. At half-past 2 yesterday the members of the Conference bad assembled in the Council chamber of the Austrian Foreiga-office, and, after having examined and signed the 12th and last protocol, they formally took leave of each other. The Ministers did not sepa rate without exchanging their good wishes for each other's welfare, and during the last few minutes they were together the ten statesmen appear entirely to have forgotten that their great object had for some weeks been to obtain all possible advantage over each other. The sitting did not last longer than half-an-hour. The Oesterreichische Zeitung thus confirms a part of the informa tion which you received from me yesterday: — 'The Conferences were broken off in consequence of Russia having positively re fused to consent to any limitation of her na val force in the Black Sea. As the nego ciations are at an end, the Moniteur will doubtless hood publish an account of what has occurred ...

Mr. Filder and the Commissariat. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 1 August 1855

Mr. Filder and the Commissariat. Sir Cbaries Treveljan has told his story, and thus fer, like all the other actors in this tragedy of errors, he seems to succeed in shifting the blame from his own department. It is only in the indeterminate Kne between the province of one department and every other around it that anything wrong can be Bospected, and the public is left to make out for it self how so many conscientious, intelligent and laborious officers hare collectively produced snch confusion and disaster. Various accounts will be given of this result, such as want of unity, want of a master mind, or want of mutual confidence; bat, x without attempting to lay bare the root of the evil, sad say in ten words why we have lost half our srnryv we will contest ourselves with a brief sketch from the evidence before us, helping us a step to wards the solution of this question.

In several preceding papers we have discussed the present position of the colony with res pect to its relations with the mother country, nor is the subject exhausted. Each suc ceeding day but confirms us in the view we have taken, and furnishes additional reasons for increased exertions on the part of the colony, to meet fairly an evil which, if al lowed to pass unheeded, will gradually in crease in intensity, and finally result in the perdition of the Province. We have before stated that the mother country — no, we cannot say the mother country ; we will not , presume her to be, knowingly, guilty of go great an act of in justice — No! that the Secretary of State for the Colonies, the servant of the English people, has determined t&at, for the pririksK of receiving the^ionviefcs -tf Great Jftrifcain, we shall defray many of the costsconse que...

France. THE PARIS EXHIBITION. Paris, Saturday, 7½ a.m. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 1 August 1855

France. Times, April SOth. THE PARIS EXHIBITION. Paris, Saturdty, 7£ a.m. The Moniteur publishes an Imperial decree, announcing that the opening of the Universal Ex hibition is postponed to the 15th May. Apnrt 27. It is now positively affirmed that the long talked-of journey of the Emperor to Constantino ple aud the Crimea is suspended, if not definitely abandoned. A telegraphic message was sent off yesterday to Marseilles to prevent the embarka tion of the articles prepared for the voyage, and. further desiring that a message be despatched to Constantinople, ordering the preparations for the Emperor's reception in that city to be suspended. It appears that the immediate—at all events, os tensible causes of this change of resolve, is the re port of the committee of physicians held yester day, who are said to have decided, after due deli beration and a minute inquiry into the circum stances, that the sanitorv condition of the encamp ments was not so good that the Emperor could safely...

Speech of Earl Grey on Transportation. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 1 August 1855

Speech of Earl Grey on Transporta tion. I am sure your lordships are greatly indebted to the noblo aud learned lord for having brought this subject under your attention. This subject is a growing one ; aud you are beginning to leel the evils which I anticipated when you passed the act abolishing transportation some two years ago, and I am persuaded that if Parliament and the Government are not very careful these evils, in stead of being exaggerated, as my noble friend above me would have us think, are only the com mencement of far greater ills. I concur with the noble and learned lord that the abolition of trans portation was a great misfortune. There can be no doubt, from the evidence which reaches us from various quarters, that transportation, as regulated of late years, did insure the great ends of punish ment more completely than any other system which has yet been devised. (Hear, hear.) It undoubtedly deterred from crime those who were disposed to become criminals, and it no le...

Toodyay. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 1 August 1855

Toodyay     Messrs. G. Gooch and Joseph York have written to us to the same effect as a Toodyay correspondent, the subject matter of whose communication we pub- lished last week, viz., respecting the wholesale rob- beries committed by a gang of natives. It appears from the communication before us that the gang is composed of six aborigines, and that they have been the plague of the Toodyay and Northam districts for the past three months, robbing in every direction, and even shipping their spears in a threatening man- ner, and, in fact, stating their intention to kill a shep- erd if he did not give them his supply of food, which,   being without means of defence, he was obliged to   do. Besides the robberies commited at Mr Sewell's and Mr Gooch's referred to last week, they have robbed Mr Gooch's shepherd twice of all he had, even taking his razors, and also another shepherd at Toodyay in the same employ, whom they visited three tim...
