FOREIGN AFFAIRS. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 14 May 1856
FOREIGN AFFAIRS. At length the Esterhazy proposition 8 have appeared and we give the text in full,— ' 1 . Danubian Principalities. — Complete abouti- n of the Russian protectorate. The principalities shall receive an organisation conformable to their wishes, wants, and interests ; and this new organisa tion, about which the people shall be consulted, shall be acknowledged by the contracting powers, and sanctioned by the Sultan, as emanating from his sovereign initiative. No state shall, under any pre text whatever, or under any form of protectorate, interfere in questions concerning the internal admin istration of the Principalities. They shall adopt a sys tei#definitive, permanent, called for by their geogra phical position, and no obstacle shall be opposed to their fortifying their territory as they please, to secure them against foreign aggression. ' In exchange for the fortresses and territory occu pied by the allied armies, Russia consents to a recti fication of her frontier wi...

'Sir,' replied the sage, ' I can wait.' Our present Governor arrived with a flourish, of trumpets, and every one was in expectation of being delighted ; we have ' waited,' and with what result, let the legislation at the ensuing session inform us. At the time of His Excellency's arrival, every one was inclined to allow him the same latitude as the Lexicographer did his Mend's friend. From circumstances which preceded his arrival, we were compelled to admit that his antecedents were not such as we could wish, yet, notwithstanding, we thought that, perhaps, after we had heard him sneak, and seen him act, we mijrht be come delighted.

Trial and Sentence of Messrs. Strahan, Paul, and Bates. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 14 May 1856
Trial and Sentence of Messrs. Stra- han, Paul, and Bates. The trial of Sir John Paul, and his partners, Messrs. Strahan and Bates, was brought to a close on the afternoon of Saturday last. The chief re- liance of the counsel for the prisoners was, that they had brought themselves within the protecting clauses of the Act of Parliament by the disclosures which they had made. This was effectually disposed of, however, by the Attorney-General. Baron Alder- son, in summing up, said the first question for the jury would be, did Sir John Dean Paul sell the se- curities? If he did so, he was guilty of a misde- meanour under the act of Parliament, and was pu- nishable accordingly. Then the jury would have to consider whether the other prisoners were parties to the transaction. Civilly, a partner was responsible for the acts of his co-partners—because, by the &nbsp; &nbsp; agreement between them, they were the agents in all acts done by the firm. But he was not and could not, ...

EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE To the 19th January. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 21 May 1856
EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE To the 19th January. Otjb contemporary having been placed in possession of papers to 19th January, con taining English News of five days later date than was published by ourselves onWednes day last, we this week give a summary of the additional intelligence, which is of some importance: — It appears that, although there is some prospect of Russia consenting to accept the terms of peace, the London daily papers do not attach so much weight to the telegraphic despatch as the words of which it is com prised would seem to justify. Count Esterhazy, the Austrian ambassa dor, when he delivered the ultimatum agreed on in concert with the allies, informed Count Nesselrode that, unless he received by the 8th of January a pure and simple acceptation of the terms proposed, he should be under the necessity of leaving St. Pe tersbargh and breaking np the embassy. The Court of Russia, instead of commu nicating with the Austrian ambassador, for warded to Vienna its reply to th...

The summary of the proposed Ordinances, which we have from time to time published in this journal, will enable our readers to form some conception of the probable amount and the nature of the ensuing legis lation. There are vet some Bills which have not issued from the press, including the Publican's and Insolvent Bills, but of which we hope to publish an abstract in our next issue. Among those which have already appeared will be found some of absolute necessity and utility, and others, whose general tendency is good, yet which are objectionable in mat ters of detail ; but, altogether, we cannot fail to remark jen uncalled for degree of severity in the various penal clauses — an utter disproportion between the offence com mitted and the amount of punishment with which it is sought to be visited. We pur pose, this week, to glance briefly at the principal Bi...
The late Archdeacon. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 21 May 1856
The late Archdeacon. The following is an extract from a sermon preached at Fremantle on Sunday last: — The text was from Luke ii. 29 30 — ' Lord now lettest tbou thy servant depart in peace, according to thy word, for mine eyes have seen thy salvation.' After speaking of the preparation of Simeon's mind for death and its causes, and their adaptability to mo dern OhristianRT — Need I, my brethren, having thus spoken of the character and experience of Simeon of old, need I direct you to the similarity of character and expe rience of him for whom our struggling Church now mourns? The attitude of his mind was that of pre paration. I rpeak not now of his last illness, which was of so painful a nature as to deprive his friends of his last admonition and instruction, but I speak of his life; for, while most men put off preparation till the eve of death, when no opportunity may occur, be wisely made his whole active life a preparation for the bles sed home he occupies now. He habitually ?* ...

Public Houses. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 21 May 1856
Public Houses We extract the following from an article entitled 'Drinking and Smoking' in the January number of Blachwood's 3Iagazinet deeming that it may be of interest at the present time: — The coercive methods of suppression, unfortu nately too fashionable among us at present, are likely to raise very serious and distressing ques tions. As a minor evil, they give ground for totally false anticipations of successful results. With great pomp and form a dozen or two of public-houses are abolished in a large town, and innocent people believe that drinking is thus up rooted. To say that drinking is caused by toe public-house keeper, is about as wise as to say that it is caused by the bottle-maker, or that horse-racing is the creation of saddlers. If there are five public-houses where there were ten before, the custom of the five will be doubled. If the ten public-houses are abolished, people will sup ply themselves from other (sources, and will pro bably expend in an increased amount...
