NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 21 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 12 th 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 Cos...

Markets. VICTORIA. 9TH APRIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 21 May 1856

ftarfots VICTORIA. 9th APBlt. 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, it obtained at uio sau» »^«-» «. -?- ? a shade higher, as their value increases by accumu lation of interest on the voyage. Hobsons Bay Railway shares are in the market at £4/ 108. une hundred and fifty-six Melbourne Corporation deben tures are in the market, ranging from two to thirteen re|tockand Stations.— On Tuesday last the Kbnong Wootoug Station, the property of Messrs.

One or two members of the original corps have withdrawn, buttheirplaces havebeen filled by others, and there is every reason for believing that the plays will go off as well, and in the presence of a crowded house, as on former occasions. We regret to learn that the late dry weather lias severely affected the sheep-farmer, the newly dropped lambs suffering much from the consequent scarcity of food. It has been stated that not more than 50 per cent, of the drop of lambs will be saved, but we hope this is an excessive estimate. From the same cause, the operation of ploughing has been, to some extent impeded in the Eastern district, and we fear the late rains have been too partial and slight to have exercised a generally beneficial effect. There is, however, now ...

Western Australian Grievances. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 21 May 1856

Western Australian Grievances ' What shall we do with ourcriminal po pulation?' is a question which, at tbe pre sent moment, is earnestly asked by thought ful people on every side. The number of replies given to this interesting question, and the arguments by which they are sought to be supported, have certainly left the subject in a state of ** confusion worse con founded.' One class of onr modern philan thropists tell us — go direct to die root of the evil; and, acting upon the wise maxim that ** prevention is better than cure,** direct our attention to the importance of reclaim ing and profitably instructing tbe mass of our juvenile offenders; and thej encourage us to the high and important work, by the assurance that if we ** train up a child in the way he should go, when he is old be will not depart from it.' The value and efficiency of this plan, if properly and ex tensively carried out, cannot be overrated. But what shall be done in the meantime with the adult criminal? We ma...

TO THE EDITOR OF "THE INQUIRER AND COMMERCIAL NEWS." [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 28 May 1856

To the Editor op ' The Inquirer and Commercial Uews.' Sib, — Myself as an agriculturist, and most other settlers in that line of business, have anxiously look ed for some printed copies of the Prize Essay, and I must say, we feel rather disappointed at its non publication after so many bold promises from the collective body of members of the Toodyay Agri cultural Society at whose instance it was written. The editor of the Perth Gazette very kindly offered to publish the work, but whether the delay rests with him or the committee of the Society, is a matter of little import, for the public have not the chance of benefiting by the labours of the Author, who, I am well assured never intended, and indeed would be sorry to learn that his elaborate effusions are to be hidden under a bushel. Now is the time for the successful issue of Agricultural observation, and the immediate publication of the Toodyay Prize Essay would be of infinite service to settlers in this district of the colony.

Cmmpnfcttft. ffjgTAs a general rule, we wish it to he understood that we do'nat identify ourselves with the opinion or expressions of our correspondents. To the Editor of ' The Inquirer and Commercial News.' Sir, — The fetter which, appeared in your co lumns last week from a Soman Catholic Clergy man, might lead the public to believe that the penal discipline carried out in this Colony, under a Protestant Government, is administered in a spirit of intolerance and partiality. A Newspaper affords no ground for religious controversy, nor ?would I occupy the ground if it did; my former connection with the Convict Establishment, how ever, enables me to shew how far the charge ot in tolerance and partiality can be substantiated by fects. Whether the Protestant or the Boman Catholic Church is most inclined to tolerate dif ferences of opinion, and to respect liberty of con science, it matters not now to discuss; this is most certain, that the sympathies of a Protestant community are easily ...

Conversation with a Russian. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 28 May 1856

Conversation with a Bussian The Paris correspondent of the Man chester Guardian, writing on the 54 th, re ports as follows: — I had a long conversation yesterday with a Russian gentleman, who is one of the most highly educated and intelli gent persons I almost ever met. He was much employed by the late Czar, and has had several missions confided to him; amongst others, one to central Asia, — rather a scientific than a political one, — which was much talked of at the time. I plainly told him what I told you in my letter of yesterday, touching the plans I had heard spoken of as those of the ensuing spring campaign, and the dangers which were likely to threaten Russia from the north. He did not seem either surprised or alarmed; but the sub stance of bis whole answer to me was this: — ' I have always thought as much from the beginning; I have always felt that this war would probably be a war of invasion from one side or the other; either a war of in vasion against France, if Russia were...

Quid vertan atquc deceits, euro et rogo, et omnis in hoc sum WED3STESDAT, MAY 28, 1856. Our readers are this week placed in pos session of a summary of the Publican's Bill, and are enabled to judge whether its provi sions are of the character with which popu lar rumour invested them, whether the des cription of the mischievous tendency of the measure has been exaggerated or ovestrain ed. Some weeks since we cautioned our read ers against the probable attempt to limit the powers of the Magistracy, by giving the Go vernor the privilege of vetoing their decisions with reference to appeals in the case of reject ed applications for publican's licences. We were wrong : the Governor has not sought to assume that right, and for the best of all possible reasons — there is to be no appeal, and, consequently, there can be no veto.
