Peace and War Prospects. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 7 May 1856

Peace and War Prospects. [European Times ~] The war in the Crimea is not, it appears, over for the winter . The detailed accounts from the camp to December 11 communicate a Russian defeat on a small scale — a little Inkermann in its way, in which a party of the enemy, under the protection of a dark and drizzling morning, stole down upon the little village of Baga, and rushed upon the French who occupied it. The French were surprised, but they speedily recovered them selves — attacked the enemy at the point of the bayonet and drove them out. A pursuit followed, in which a party of the Cossacks on horseback, coming to a point of the ground over which their horses could not get, dismounted and fled, leaving about 40 animals in the handd of the victors. In this affair the French had an officer and seven men killed, and thirteen wounded; and the Russians w« re said to have left seventy dead upon the ground. The French made twenty prisoners. The report of Marshal Pelissier, in the French ...

Sebastopol. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 7 May 1856

Sebastopol Winter is now come upon us in reality, and wo hare had for the last few days some very cold weather. On the night of the 18th the thermom eter went down to eight degrees below zero in the camp of the engineers, fourth division. This was by a self-registering thermometer. At 10 a.m. on the 19th it was only three degrees above zero. This is nearly, or quite, equal to Canadian cold, and as might be expected, a number of men have been more or less frott bitten. I have heard of no serious cases among our men. The French suffer a great deal from cold. The other night two French soldiers went into one of our guard roomsin. Sebaetopol and asked for some coffee, and to be allowed to warm themselves by the fire. Our men gave them some coffee and biscuit, and they sat down by the fire. One of them took off his shoes (he had no stockings) and began robbing his feet, which were frostbitten. In about ten minutes he got up, but staggered and fell dead, to the great horror of the English...

Sentence of Death upon a Naval Officer. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 7 May 1856

Sentence of Death upon a Naval Officer We have elsewhere adverted to the lukewarmness on the part of the Admiralty in not trying an admi ral and an hon. captain for a breach of the articles of war. We will now show how differently an unfor tunate Second Master has been treated. On the 11th of December a court-martial assembled on board the Valorous, in Kazatch Bay, to try Mr Phillip James Dennehy, Second Master, in charge of the Lynch despatch vessel, Lieutenant Commander C. M. Aynslcy. Captain Buckle was president, and die members comprised some of the ablest captains in the squadron. Mr Dennehy was charged with disobedience of orders, and with having been absent from his station while the Lynx was under the fire of the enemy. The circumstances are altogether singular. Mr Dennehy was second Master of the Hannibal, but, under the impression that the Lynx would furnish him with better opportunities for dis tinguishing himself, and of thus gaining his pro motion, he solicited and obta...

Return of Emigrants from America. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 7 May 1856

Return of Emigrants from America. Considerable interest has recently been felt at the return of large numbers of Irishmen to their own country — Irishmen who have been sojourning in the United States, and find, as the result of their travels and experience, that they can do as well or better at home than in the Great Republic. The same subject has not passed without observation on the other side of the Atlantic, and we perceive in a recent number of a New York journal a sensible article in reference to it. The writer takes a large view of the question, and is shrewd enough to discover that in a new coun try like America, with a virgin soil and boundless territory, nothing is wanting but human beings to de velop the resources of a land so vast and so favored by nature. He is ready to welcome ' the squalid im bruled Irishman, lauding in tatters or homespun; the foreign, guttural, garlic -y German, with his nut brown face and broad shoulders; the conceited Eng lishman and hairy Frenchm...

The Concordat. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 7 May 1856

The Concordat. Those who reverence the Papacy have indeed some reason to boast of its vitality and strength in the midst of weakness. What is its temporal state in this the 19th century of the Chuich? What is the position of the Sovebeigx Pontiff, the Eternal City, and the classic and sacred land winch is the patrimony of Peteb? A weak and timorous old man, surrounded with, pomp which inspires no respect, passes through the ancient streets of his capital only to meet the sullen looks or to hear the clamours of the people. They are hopeless and hungry, they shout after him for bread ; he must affect not to hear, he must receive their murmurings as a welcome, and return dis pirited to his palace, to ponder on this gloomy re lation between a Sovereign and his subjects, between a Christian bishop and his flock. If he thinks of the clergy, of whom he is the chief, he must call to mind the feeling with which those who dwell within the shadow of St. Peter's re gard their priests; if his th...

NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 7 May 1856

NEW SOUTH WALES. We have news from Sydney to the 5th inst. The wool market was well sustained, at former prices. There had been larger arrivals of tallow, of which the town trade bought freely, but exporters were cautious. The import market was very dull; all parties were awaiting English advices. On the sugar market the Herald reports — Sugar — The business transacted in this article during the week has been confined to sales to the trade, who, we hear, have purchased considerably of raw sugars, at a slight reduction upon prices last quoted. The absence of arrivals prevents any speculation, holders being unwilling to operate lergely without further advices. Papers from the Mauritius to the 12th February announce that but a very small portion of the 1155-6 crop remained to be shipped, for which advanced rates were demanded, especially for the light yellow qualities, in requisition for the Melbourne market. The Sugar Company gives the following quota tions: — Loaf snowdrops and Cossi...

Markets. VICTORIA. 9th April. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 7 May 1856

VICTORIA. 9th April. Bear's Weekly Circular reports some transactions in the money and land market: — Money Market.— The rate of interest continues steady at 10 per cent on approved securities, and at that rate we have negotiated about £4,000 in various sums, on city and improved agricultural property. By tho last mail we learn that Victoria Government debentures have been sold in London at par. This will no doubt cause them to be sought after as a remittance, if obtained at the same rate, or even at a shade higher, as their value increases by accumu lation of interest on the voyage. Hobson's Bay Railway shares are in the market at £47 lOi. One hundred and fifty-six Melbourne Corporation deben tures are in the market, ranging from two to thirteen, years. Stock and Stations.— On Tuesday last the Konong Wootong Station, the property of Messrs. J. &-D.S.

Convicts from Western Australia. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 7 May 1856

Convicts from Western Australia. [From the Argus, March 28.] We fear that the inhabitants of Western Australia are beginning to discover that convicts are not pure luxuries, and that, however profitable it may be to have large English convict establishments to supply, and troops of gentlemen in chains and yel- low jackets to make roads gratuitously, the system has attendant disadvantages. It has been remarked that life insurance compa- nies, even when started on the most airy foundations, often go on very flourishingly for many years, because it is only after such a lapse of time that the assured commence departing this life with anything like regu- larity. The great bulk of young and mid- dle-aged people who insure their lives at the commencement of the company's operations have to grow old, and to begin dying off in regular course before the company properly feels its real liabilities. For like reason was it that Western Australia, which had long been in such desperate straits as ...

Did this matter regard the publicans1 alone, we should not have made it so often the subject of comment, but have contented ourselves with that interference necessary for the protection of any body of citbsens, or, indeed, of any individual citizen, but it con cerns more than a class, more than a special interest, it concerns the whole Colony.
