[Advertisement}. — HoUowaifs PiJJCs un failing remedies for Dropsy. — Mr H. Tomkmson of New Plymouth, U . Z., was a severe sufferer from this terrible complaint, and water literally oozed through his skin, so fiat daily change of apparel became necessary, several Physicians were called in, and afforded him temporary relief, but the disease ultimately increased, and his life was endangered, he (like thousands of others) then determined to try the effect of Holloway's Pills,, these remedies very quickly mitigated the viru leuce of the disorder, and by persevering with . them for about eix weeks, left him thoroughly restored to health; by a few more weeks contin uance of them, he was as strong as ever he was ixu his life. These celebrated Pills are equally em cations in liver complaints and correcting bile aa well as disorders of the kidneys.
NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 4 June 1856
NEW SOOTH 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 beep 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 Melbonrne market. The Sugar Company gives the following quota tions: — Loaf snowdrops and Coss...
EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 4 June 1856
EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE From Copenhagen we learn that the greatest dis content prevails at the prospect of peace on the very . unsatisfactory terms to which the allies are said to have agreed. It is plain that peace on those terms will almost annihilate English influence in the Baltic. . The Swedes pat no faith in the good intentions of Russia, and view with considerable alarm the possi. biiities of an unsatisfactory peace. Some sensation has been produced in the diplo matic world at Constantinople by the very natural conduct of M.' Tecco, the Sardinian minister, who has . protested energeticallv against his exclusion from the Conferences about 'the rights of Hie rayahs. 'Sir Hector Stubble,' alias Lord Stratford dc Bedcliffe, appears to have behaved in bis usual injudicious manner, and to have given much greater offence to M. Tecco by his explanations than the Minister of France, who is reported to have addressed the Sar dinian Envoy in a much more conciliatory tone. Tbe extraordinar...
The Queen's Speech. My Lords and Gentlemen [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 4 June 1856
The Queen's Speech. My Lords and Gentlemen, Since the close of the last session of Parliament the army of the Allies have achieved a signal and important success. Sebastopol, the great stronghold of .Russia in the Black Sea, has yielded to the per severing constancy and to die daring bravery of the Allied forces. The naval and military preparations for the ensuing year have necessarily- occupied my eerioos attention; bat while determined to omit no effort which could give vigour to the operations of the war, I have deemed it my duty not to decline any overtures which might reasonably afford a prospect of a safe and honourable peace. Accordingly when the Emperor of Austria lately offered to myself and to my angust ally the Emperor of the French, to employ his good offices with the Emperor of Rus sia, with a view to endeavour to bring about an amicable adjustment of the matters at issue between the contending Powers, I consented, in concert with my Allies, to accept the offer thus mad...
York. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 4 June 1856
(From our own Correspondent) The want of rain is now severely felt in this district, as doubtless it is in every other part of the Colony; the season is most unusual; there is no grass; lambing season has arrived, and much fear is felt about the lambs; some heavy losses are already reported; farm ing operations are very backward. The weather for a length of time past has almost every day presented some of the usual signs of rain, without, however, bringing any; the fogs and clouds invariably clear off and are succeeded by bright sunshine and hot weather; until people have lost all faith in weather prognostics. There is no longer any doubt as to the existence of lime in the York district, the Rev. Mr Lowe hav ing succeeded in burning a kiln full of excellent quality. The stone from which it is procured was found, I think, on the surface, but the fact being once ascertained, most likely large deposits of it will be discovered ere long. Mr Lowe has commenced to build his house with it....
No title [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 4 June 1856
(From a Correspondent) We are all praying for rain, our very warm sum mer having returned again. The fires having made such a clean sweep, not a vestige of grass is to be seen. . Sheep are starving, lambs dying, and a fright ful deficiency in the number of lambs will be the result Many have already lost 50 per cent, and I know not how many of the remaining moiety would be spared if the coming winter should suddenly prove severe. For several months the sheep have been driven to the pools to water. The importation of superior ploughs has enabled the fanners to continue their tillage operations through all this dry and trying season. Wheat is on the rise and is now 8s per bushel. The dry season has made hay scarce; barley is abundant, May 19th, 1856.
To the Editor of " The Isqciber aud Commercial News." [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 4 June 1856
To the Editor of ' The I-'qcibeb and Commercial News.' , SIR. — Some weeks siuce a correspondent of yours told us that much improvement has been Jiade in agriculture during the yast year. I am arming over the hills, and often travelling from .me district to another, but have not observed, the improvement he speaks of. The only difference is that farmers and labouring men have been clear ing, more or less, and have brought a considerable breadth of new land under tillage. This is not improving the general state of farming, nor will the above eventually add much to our present produce. A great mistake is made by those who think but little, and know less of causes and effects, as regards the management of land, and I advise such ot'your correspondents who, may have spare time, pen, ink, and paper, to employ their tune in giving us farmers something that may profit us. Every man to his business ; but let no one place before the public assertions or opinions so errone ous as 1 frequently...

*v ? - — To tlie Editor of' The Inquirer and Commercial JSewj.' SIR, — In continuance of the few hasty remarks I addressed to you last week, and whiu'h are to ap pear in this present number of your journal, 1 will again raise my voice in. opposition to the proposed adoption of imprisonment for debt in Western Australia, Oil a more careful consideration, of the question, I am really at- a loss to conceive what can have been tbe motives prompting the attempt to cuact such a law, save a vindictive and spiteful feeling, or what could have induced the Advocate General to change his opinion upon such a sub ect,;as expressed by him at the meeting of the Council in 1854, and assisting in the concoction of an act so utterly at variance with all sound principles of law, justice aud humanity. Without reference to the subject of Bankruptcy or Insolvency Laws, and the distinction between them, and the necessity for the adoption of either, with their rather complex and very expensive machinery, i...

#asse. Br advices from this district to Slay 2Gth, we l'-arn that a man named Barren had been, killed un der tbe following circumstances: — Oa Thursday, 22ud ult Barren and another man named Faiilds 'were drinking and playing cards at a public house, when some dispute- arising, the deceased Barren challenged Faulds to 6ght for £5. The lat ter declined upon which Barren called him a coward, and otherwise abused him. Faulds became enraged, anil struck Barren with the back of his left hand. Faulds after this went ontside with another man to fight, and on his return Barren was dead. The po lice found Faulds on his way to the Resident Magis trate, whither ne had proceeded to surrender himself. He was examined before the Magistrates and com mitted to take his trial at the ensuing Quarter Sessions. The policeman was obliged to keep him secured for two n:ghts in his own house, and theu take him to Bunlmry, there being no gaol at the Vasse. The authorities sent to Bunbury the day after the a...

Latter from the Crimea A Letter addressed b}r Bombardier Burke, K. A. to his father, a pensioner in North Fremantle, has been kindly presented to us for publication, and we extract snch portions as may interest the general reader. It is dated from the heights in front of Se bastopol, Dec. 19th, 1855, and is of the following tenor: — ' Since I last wrote to yon, I have been on an ex pedition to Kinburn, at the mouth of the Dnieper. We were accompanied to that place by a part of our fieet and the French fleet We took the large fort after 2J hours' bombardment, together with 1500 prisoners, and 70 pieces of cannon. We then marched up the country about 11 miles towards Nicolaieff, and set fire to two villages, destroying all the hay and corn we came across leaving one man belong ing to our battery, who was taken prisoner, convey ed to Odessa; lie was afterwards exchanged, and is back again.

VICTORIA. 9tb April. Beat'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 hare negotiated about £4,000 in various sums, on city and improved agricultural property. By the last mail we learn that Victoria Government debentures have been sold in London at par. This will no donbt cause them to be sought after as a remittance, if obtained at the game 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 tm- to thirteen year..
