The Inquinen & Commeicial News. Quid verum atque decens, cure et roge, omnis is hoc sum WEDNESDAY, JUNE 11, 1856. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 11 June 1856
Quid verum atgue decens, euro et rogo, et oauUs in hoc sum WEDNESDAY, JUNE 11, 1856. Mb John Wail Habdet stated in Council that the Press wished Governor Kennedy to be hung ' on a GOiitOKS as high as Hom MO3r's,' which an obliging friend, versed in the defunct languages, has kindly translated ' a gallows as high as Hainan's.' Now, we really do not wish His Excellency any such unpleasant elevation. We do not wish him to be suspended from any gallows, high or low, nor do we wish him to be drawn and quartered, or to submit to any operation calculated to inflict so much personal an noyance and pain. We may also add that that we have no wish for his removal, or for any other extreme measure calculated to injure his present or future prospects. All we require is that he will govern a free people in a constitutional manner, or, at all events, if he is determined to act as an Eastern Sovereign rather than as an English Governor, that he will not offend the com - mon sense of the community b...

Thursday, June S, 1856. Theconsideratiori of the Insolvent Bill was post poned until Monday at the suggestion of Mr Samson. Mr Clifton gave notice that he should move that its consideration be postponed until next session. The Bill for tbe relief of creditors of debtors leav ing one Australian colony for another was read a second time. £Thc report of what followed respecting the tariff amendment is taken, word for word, from our con temporary, as, in consequence of a mistake-as to the hour of meeting, we were not present until later in the day-3 Tbe next order of the day was the second reading of a Bill to amend tbe Schedule annexed to the Ta riff Ordinance. His Excellency said this Bill has relation to the Estimates. He had before stated the revenue mi sufficient to meet the current expenditure, bat not sufficient to defray the liabilities which amounted to about £13,000. This had engaged the anxionB at tention of tbe Executive, to enable the Governor to liquidate these burdens, wb...
Correspondence. To the Editor of the Inquirer and Commercial News. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 11 June 1856
Comsgmtdente. £&§~As a general rule, we wish it to be understood that we do not identify ourselves with tlte opinion or expressions of our correspondents. To the Editor of the Inquirer and Commercial 2?ews. SIB, — There are at least three places in crea tion, that are well pared ; and, from the heaps of rubbish in the shape of good intentions that have been used as a concrete for pavement, I fancy that our Government House and the Council Chamber, when consecrated to the discussions of the Execu tive and the exposition of the motives of its Chief, have, to the extent of perhaps just the turn of the scale, the advantage over their less polite com peer. I am led to this reflection from hearing Go vernor Kennedy, while discussing on Saturday last in the Legislative Council, declare — apropos to nothing — that he had been sedulonsly slandered and misrepresented by the Press ; but that, inas much as these attacks were anonymous, and made bj irresponsible persons, without the assi...
Saturday, June 7. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 11 June 1856
Saturday, June 7. Mr Samson begged to be informed whether the Commandant and Comptroller-General were to be made members of the Legislative Council, and, if so, whether any addition would be made to the nonoffi- cial members. If not, the labours of the present non-official members would be, of course, as a minority of the Council, labour in vain. The Governor said, when he arrived he found that the Comptroller General was not a member of the Legislative Council, and that the Commandant, who formerly possessed a a seat in both Councils was no longer a member of either. He requested that the Commandant might be reinstated, and he was ap- pointed a member of the Executive, but not of the Legislative CouuciL He always thought that the Comptroller General should be a member of the Le- gislative Council. He had received a despatch, in reply to one addressed by his predecessor to the Se- cretary of State, which requested information as to who were the non-official members. He had replied a...

Quid verum atgue deceits, euro et rogo, etomnisin hoc sum WEDNESDAY, JUNE 18, 1856. The Session of the Legislative Council is drawing to a close, the principal Bills having passed the second reading,' and some of the ordinances possessing' less public interest having become the law of the land. The outrageous Publican's Bill, which is in every material point unaltered, has been read a second time, and the final reading is fixed for Saturday. As this Bill is so en tirely opposed by the public, as its necessity has not been supported by evidence or de fended by argument, and as it is mischievous in principle, and defective in detail, its third reading may be fairly honoured with a pro test, and we sincerely hope that Mr Samson, who has so consistently opposed it through out, will enter his protest on the minutes of the Council. The Insolvent Bill, and its sister ordi nance, the Imprisonment for Debt Bill, will be brought before the Council this day, but, as we have before stated, thes...

Markets. VICTORIA. 9th April. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 18 June 1856
VICTORIA. 9th 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. Thus ?will no doubt cause them to be sought after as a remittance, if obtained at the same rate, or even at & 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 10b. One hundred and fifty-six Melbourne Corporation deben tures are in the market, ranging from two to thirteen years.

NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 18 June 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 Coss...
