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

Fashions for January. Cloth dresses are more than ever in demand; they are composed of a skirt fastened round the waist by a buckle behind; the cosaque has turue-i basques, m which are two pockets — one for the pockethandken chief, and the other for the port-monnaie. Half pagode sleeves, with slashed caffs and large jet but tons on each band. The body is closed at front, with velvet brandebourgs and buttons. The collar is also of velvet, and lined with satin. The rotondes, or small velvet talmas, are much in demand, and the manteaux-burnous are still in favor for sortie de baloi evening parties; they are generally made of Angora cloth, and trimmed with passementeries in the Orien tal style. The moire antique was never in greater vogue than at present. The taffetas is not less in favor than the moire antique, droguets, and brocades : they arc trimmed with passementerie, and lace. Bonnets are still worn very far back on the head. The trimmings vary according to taste. We have lately s...

Correspondence. TO THE EDITOR OF "THE INQUIRER AND COMMERCIAL NEWS." [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 14 May 1856

Cmmeaiutetttt. ZsSTAs a general rule, we wish it to Be understood that we do not identify ourselves with the opinion or expressions of our correspondents. To the Editor of ' The Inquired and COMMEBCLAX NEWS.' SIR, — Why should we not be allowed to distil? A solution of the foregoing question I had the rashness, a short time ago, to request of one of our Members of Council. I say rashness, be cause the answer I received was — ' It would be the ruin of the Colony!' Annihilated by the profundity of me reply, I dropped the subject and made a precipitate retreat. Ten minutes found me reclining, meerchaum in hand, (permit me to state, in extenuation, that I belong to that miserable class the bachelors) in my favourite arm. chair. With, coolness came re flection ; with reflection came the natural conclu sion that the honourable (from bis position) and disinterested (because honourable) individual in question might possibly have been mistaken. Re-inspirited by the brilliancy of this idea, 1...

EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE To the 14th January. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 14 May 1856

EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE To the 14th January. By the iErolite we have received news from Europe of later date by six days than previously published. It is not of much interest. The following 601001817 is ex tracted principally from the Atlas, January I2ih:— HOME AFFAIRS. We have bad two more specimens of education by the gallows in the execution of Heywood, for die Rochdale murder, and of Abraham Baker, who mur dered his fellow-servant, Naomi KingswelL Hey wood died with perfect courage, and on the whole displayed extraordinary indifference to his position. He read tracts and die Bible mechanically, and ex pressed his doubts as to the authority of the latter. Mr. Thomas Wright, of Manchester, did once suc ceed in touching this man's feelings, but apparently the effects soon passed away. Surely, this proof of how a bad man can die in a sort of hardened com fort is not very edifying! Baker went to die scaffold full of contrition and of hope in die 'blood of ! Christ his Saviour.' If this...

TO THE EDITOR OF "THE INQUIRER AND COMMERCIAL NEWS." [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 14 May 1856

To the Editoh of ' The Inquirer ajtd Commercial News.' SIR, — It was only yesterday that your number of the 23rd April came to my hands, and with it a notice and eome comment on th« disagreement which has existed, as you say, between the Roman Catholic Bishop and the Local Government on matters connected with the Convict Establish ment. You will first allow me to contradict your statement, that the Rev. Mr Donovan has been suspended by Bishop Serra ; on the contrary, that worthy clergyman has enjoyed always the great est esteem of his Bishop, aud it has been to sup port the Rev. Mr Donovan's complaints in behalf of the Roman Catholic prisoners at the Convict Establishment, that Bishop Serra has shared in the disagreement alluded to. You will admit, Sir, that liberty of conscience is the greatest prerogative which English people boast o£ This liberty of conscience is refused to Her Majesty's Roman Catholic subjects who are in the Convict Establishment at Fremantie. They are forced to...

[Advebtbement.] — A most astonishing core of a Bad Breast by Holloway's Ointment and Pills. ? lira Holt, of Adelaide, was for a long time afflicted with a bad breast, every thing medical aid could do to core her was unavailing, indeed, it became much worse, and the family surgeon finally suggested that the only hope of saving her life consisted in having the breast cat off. She determined to wait a short time to consider, and a sister of the sufferer who call ed in brought a quantity of Holloway's Ointment and Fills, which she insisted on using sub rosa at first, this was continued for a few days, which improved her so much that she was induced to continue them, and at the expiration of six weeks, her breast was completely cured, and has remained well ever since.

Death of Archdeacon Wollaston. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 14 May 1856

Death of Archdeacon Wollaston Lettees from King George's Sound advise us of the demise of this venerable clergy man, who expired after a short illness, to the regret, not alone of the flock more es pecially under his care, but to that of Church men in all parts of the Colony. The lamented deceased arrived in this territory in 1841, being a passenger on board the Henry. Shortly after his arrival he was appointed one of the chaplains of the Colony, and, being stationed at Bunbury, strove to the utmost of his power to minister to the spi ritual wants of the inhabitants of that lo cality, by unceasing labours in his ministerial capacity, and by endeavouring to obtain in creased church accommodation in the district. He was unable, though his efforts were con* stant and energetic, to obtain the erection of a Church at Bunbury, but he built, partly by subscription, but principally from his private funds, a place of worship at Picton, distant about two miles from that town, and which, thoug...

The Land Revolution in Ireland. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 14 May 1856

The Land Revolution in Ireland. The Irish Encumbered Estate Commission is now in its seventh year of office, and it mil not be unin teresting to those who have watched the working of that remarkable tribunal to give an example of the complete revolution it has effected, or rather is effecting in the agricultural and social condition of Ireland. The counties of Gal way and Mayo contain 2,800,000 acres of land, or about one-seventh of the area of the island. In 1850 the landed proprietary of these two coun ties were perhaps the most hopelessly involved in Ireland. The solvent exceptions were few, chiefly in the eastern portion, where some estates were con p i ratively free from encumbrance, well cultured, and comfortably tenanted; while the remoter districts, including the great lakes and highlands of the far west, exhibited little more than the primitive ele ments of agriculture - the land untouched by enter prise, unimproved by capital, and even its natural resources unnoted, except...

Balaclava (From the Morning Herald Special Cor respondent.) Heights of Balaclava Tuesday, Bee. 1 1. Yesterday, I regret to say, two cases of cholera occurred in the 42nd VMgiment (royal Highlanders), and I must add that the two previous cases in the 92nd hare proved fatal. Private Alexander Reid (county of Forfar) was admitted to liospital six o'clock, a.m., on the 16th instant, and died at six o'clock, p.m., on the same day. Private David Hunter (of Edinburgh) was also admitted to hospital at six o'clock, a.m., on the 6th instant, and died at ten o'clock p.m., the next day. The above are the only cases up to last night in the Highland divi sion. For some time in many parts of the camp we have had to send to great distances to water our horses, and to greaterfor drinkable water for ourselves. The Highland brigade will henceforth be spared this difficulty. The artillery (a detachment) adjoin the Highland camp. The other day, a man of that corps, using & pickaxe, struck a ston...

Local and Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 14 May 1856

$ocat mid Domestic Jfntetliqeuce. Is to-day's issue will be found a letter from the Eev. M. Pagella relative to our remarks upon the recent removal of Mr. Donovan from his post of Chaplain to the Convict Establishment and the reported determination of His Excellency in con sequence of this step. There is little in the reverend gentleman's communication that calls for any special comment from us. According to his statement there was no difference of opinion be tween Bishop Serra and Mr Donovan, and the latter gentleman has not, therefore, fallen into disgrace, a circumstance which cannot but give us satisfaction. There is nothing, however, advanced to induce us to alter the opinion there expressed. We did not entertain the question of the right of the Boman Catholic Bishop to interfere with his clergy, bnt we did protest against the employment of any person who was not entirely under the control of the authorities whom he served and by whom he was paid. The most rigid discipline is r...

NEW SOUTH WALES. We have news from Sydney to the 5th April. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 14 May 1856

NEW SOUTH WALES. We have news from Sydney to the 5th April. 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...

By the last mail we learn that Victoria Government debentures have been sold in London at par. This will no doubt cause diem 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 10s. One hundred and fifty-six Melbourne Corporation deben tures are in the market, ranging from two to thirteen years.
