Correspondence. TO THE EDITOR OF "THE INQUIRER AND COMMERCIAL NEWS." [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 4 June 1856

€m'rmonitentc. fjtgfAs a general ruCe, ire vrisTi it to be understood that we do not identify ourselves with tfie opinion or expressions of our correspondents. To the Editor of *The Inquikeb aud ComuaHSjOrXEvrs.' SIB, — I have but this moment seen in your issue of last week the provisions of the proposed ' Bill to enlarge the remedies of Creditors against the persons of debtors,' and I am satisfied, after the perusal of them, that the character you ascri bed to Captain Kennedy a short time since, oi being ' arbitrary aud vain,' must be correct, and that he has completely fulfilled his own description of to-- his character, given at Fremantle when he landed, r that he is ' not a man of half measures.' Such a thing as imprisonment for debt, whether fraud ulently contracted or not, is surely no half mea sure; but its proposal by him is complete evi dence of his arbitrary vanity. That soma alter ation is not required in our present law I am not disposed to deny, but to introduce the pra...

Eastern Colonies. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 4 June 1856

? ♦ ? Eastern Colonies. Br the Lochinvar we have received South Australian papers to 23rd April, containing intelligence from the neighbouring colonies to a comparatively recent date. In Adelaide the attempt to convert ty chemical processes the offal of the public slaughter house into an artificial manure was attracting much attention. If the efforts of the experimentalist are crowned -with success great benefits are anticipated to the city in a sanitary point of view, and also to the agriculturist. The article thus manufactured is offered for sale under the designation of artificial guano. The foun dation stone of a new church was laid on 15th April in the presence of the Governor. The directors of the Burra Burra Mining Company submitted to the shareholders on 16th April the 11th annual report. It is a very satisfactory document. The quantity of ore raised during the proceeding year was 6,862 tons, and the profit on the same was £27,399 18s. 8d. The question of distillation still ...

To the Editor of the Inquirer and Commercial News. The Proposed Ordinances. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 4 June 1856

To the Editor of the Inquirer and Commercial JVews. SIR. — Will you allow one of your oldest sub scribers, and a publican, to offer a few remarks upon the following clauses of the proposed Public Housu Ordinance? Clause No. 12, notwithstand ing your argument, to the contrary, is imperative ly called, for, owing to the fixed opinion of the Licensing 3Ia^ist»ates (whom be it remembered are the same men now as ten or fifteen years back) that the greater the number of licensed houses, the hotter i'or society, as it prevented drunkt';tn;-ss. an eiiijrvaa I could r.ever solve. In proof of my as sertion I may state that tiie publicans of Freman tle presented a memorial to tlie biinch of Licens ing Magistrates praying for a limitation but to no purpose, the old prejudice prevailed and ano ther house was added to those which already af forded more than double the accommodation re quired. What is the consequence? five of the. nine houses licensed are not paying expenses, and one of the oldest...

The Inquirer & Commercial News. Quid verum atque decens, curo et rogo, et omnis hoc sum WEDNESDAY, JUNE 4, 1856. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 4 June 1856

Quid vertun atgue deeens, euro et rogo, etomnisin hoc sum WEDNESDAY; JUNE 4, 1856. The conjecture we hazarded a week or two since, viz. — that the Governor had first as sumed that drunkenness was the great vice of this Colony, and then proceeded to legis late upon such assumption, has been won derfully verified by His Excellency himself and few who have carefully read his speech will be inclined to gainsay that he has at tempted throughout to square facts with his statements, instead of his statements with facts, that he has started with the gratui tous assumption that we are all drunkards, trusting to happy assurance, or still more happy chance, to make reality support as sertion. The greater portion of His Excellency's address is in connexion with the Public House Bill, and may be considered as a de fence of that measure. The aim of the Bill is to discourage drunkenness, and in order to support it, the prevalence of that vice in this Colony must be clearly established. Cer tainly ...

The Whirlwind at Fremantle. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 11 June 1856

The Whirlwind at Fremantle. TExtractfrom Captain Wratfs Report.! About 5 30 p.m., yesterday, a whirlwind passed over the prison premises at this place from X.W. to S.E. and has done damage to a large extent. I happened to be watching from one of the npper windows of my house the approach of a very black cloud over the sea from the northward — and as it approached the upper end of a water spout was clearly defined — and I have no doubt had it continu ed its course over the sea a waterspout would hare been formed. It passed between the old town quarry and this town — tearing off branches from the trees and carry ing everything it came across np to a great height in its vortex. It made a loud lnsnncr noise, distinctly audible where I was standing. As soon as it reached the prison wall nearly the whole of the northern boundary (150 yards long) 20 feet high and in some places 2 ft. G inches thick was laid perfectly flat turning over on its foundation like a hinge ; anoC from the evenness...

EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE. The Paris Council of War has been dissolved. Its proceedings are still secret An armistice is immediately expected, but the conditions arc not yet known. It was confidently stated that on the 18th January the Czar had ordered the Russian Generals in the Crimea to suspend hostilities. Nesselrode has issued circulars stating that Russia has yielded to the representations of friendly Powers, and not as being pressed by considerations of her own interest The French Government proposes London as the seat of the Peace Conferences, but the English Ca binet has proposed Paris. The prospects of peace have caused a rise in pub lic securities. Consols have gone up nearly 5 per cent. The King of Prussia has strongly blamed General Von Wrangel for attending the Tc Deum celebrated at the Hotel of the Bussian Legation at Berlin on aecount of the fall of Kars. General Vivian, fearing to be attacked at Kertcb, has called officers, infantry, and artillery, from Con stantinople....
