HOME AFFAIRS. IN the House of Lords on Monday Lord Broach am delivered an interesting speech on ihe impitrtnnce of judicial statistics, an-i mo ed a series of resolutions relating to the subject. The noble lord gave an account of the care taken by the French Government to rec -rd all facts relating to criminal offi-nccs an-l law proceedings therewith connected, likewise nil particular* of civil suits, bankruptcies, &-?„ &c.

Western Australia in 1855. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 18 June 1856

Western Australia in 1855. We now redeem our promise, and select such portions of Mr Durlacusr's lecture as may be of general interest. . The Lecturer commenced by recording the onward progress of the Colony, which, although not in proportion to the onward movement of other and, it may be, more favoured settlements, has still, thanks to the energy of the settlers, made considerable advances within the last few-years, advances which even mal-legislation has been unable to check. There can be little doubt, we I believe there can be no doubt whatever, 1 but that its progress would be still more marked and decisive if the people had some voice in the management of colonial mat ters. At present we are in a worse posi tion than an absentee landlord, who con fides the control of his estates to a steward; for he can dismiss his servant if unworthy, and at all ewnts has no one to blame but himself for his appointment; whereas we have a steward for the management of our estates appointed by o...

With reference to men with families, he co...

Correspondence between Bishop Serra and the Local Government. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 18 June 1856

Correspondence between Bishop Sena and the Local Government. We publish an abstract of the correspondence be tween Bishop Serva and the Local Government, in connection with tbe dispute relative to the ap pointment of a Roman Catholic schoolmaster in the Establishment at Fremantle. The first letter from Dr Serra to the Colonial Secretary is dated 17th February, 18-56. It com plains that the Roman Catholic prisoners are obliged to attend a school conducted by a Protes tant, and states that the Roman Catholic chaplain has frequently remonstrated, but without success. It further states that as ' serious consequences would follow in the Establishment from its being revealed to the Roman Catholic prisoners that their attendance at the Establishment School, whilst it is conducted by a teacher of a different persuasion, is against the rules of their Church,' Dr Serra considered it necessary to acquaint His Excellency with tlie fact, trusting that he will put an end to the practice.

EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE To 12th March. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 18 June 1856

EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE To 12th March. BY the Lady Elizabeth we have received news to 12th March. There seems to be little doubt but that peace will be declared, the conferences having hitherto been con- ducted in a satisfactory manner. Beyond this there is little intelligence of interest. Poisoning appears to bave become fashionable,, and strychnia the most approved poison. We notice several murders recorded which were perpetrated in this manner. Mr John Sadleir, brother to Mr James Sadleir M.P. for Tipperary, had committed suicide, in con- sequence of the discovery of extensive frauds com mitted by him in connexion with tbe Tipperaiy Bank. His brother and others are implicated.
