TO THE EDITOR OF "THE INQUIRER AND COMMERCIAL NEWS." [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 25 June 1856

To the Editor of ' The Txquxreb asd COMMXRCIAX. JfEWS.' SHE, — The Estimates of expenditure for the next year, as published in the newspapers, are really strong evidence of the superiority of the Governor and the talented Colonial Secretary over the members of the Chamber of Commerce, in bra zen folly, if not in financial ability. Setting out, as His Excellency does, with a Jeremiad on the debt that lies like an incubus on the Colony, and proposing in — nay, trying to smuggle through — the Council an increase to oar taxation, in consequence of that debt, with a de pression on the business and trade of the Colony Fcarcely ever esperienced to such an extent be fore ; with, as you have truly stated, the 'bone and sinew' of the Colony leaving for more favour able shores by every chance; notwithstanding all this, these expert financiers, these largemind ed statesmen, propose an increased expenditure upon the two pet projects of each — Police and Schools — an increase to an amount which, ...

To the Editor of the Inquirer and Commercial News. SIR, — Mr George Leake has just handed me a letter he this instant received from Mr Clifton, and may 1 beg that you Trill insert iiis letter, with, this retractation, in your paper. I am perfectly satisfied with. Mr Clifton's indig nant and indirect denial of having ' sought' for the public situations mentioned in my last, and therefore I am bound to believe him, — cumgrcoio salts. Mr Clifton is, I presume, prepared to deny two tilings — First, that after the death of Colonel Clarke, and before the arrival ofCapL FitzGerald, he had made arrangements for relays of Timor Po nies to Australind, with Hie inteHigenefv~sl«w*l4 it arrive, of his (Mr Clifton's) appointment to the Government, and that he received from Mr Peel, of ManduraU, in answer to his own on the subject of these delays, and written in a state of ferment, a letter, advising him to ' take a dose of salts to allay irritation, and, in the meantime, to keep himself cool aud ...

The Inquirer & Commercial News. WEDNESDAY, JUNE 25, 1856. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 25 June 1856

Quid verum atque deceits, euro et rogo, et omnis in hoc sum. WEDNESDAY, JUKE -25, 1856. The postponement of the Insolvent and its sister Bill until the nest meeting of Council, has given general satisfaction. Even the witnesses, who were in favor of Buch a mea sure, all admitted that, if it were possible to avoid arrest for debt, the Bill would be better, without the compulsory clause ; and, it having appeared, on evidence, that there was a prospect of arriving at this satisfactory result, it was but reasonable that a post ponement should take place, for the purpose of attempting some modification to meet the principal objection to the measure, and for the purpose of allowing the colonists, other than those engaged in trade, to become acquainted with the provisions of the Bills, and to express their opinions respecting the proposed legislation. Notwithstanding all that has been, said about the arrest clause — that it does not recognize the principle of imprisonment for debt, that it...

Even now our limited space will not per mit us to give it in cxienso, and we therefore, (trust icg that the oorreapoiidtncc- on Uhls subject here ceases), give an abstract of the communication. It professes to be an answer to the letter of the Rev. Jas.

Sir David Brewster and the Spirit Rappers. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 25 June 1856

Sir David Brewster and the Spirit Rappers. Sir David Brews'er -m-ires a letter con tradicting certain statements made by Mr Benjamin Coleman and others as to what Lord Bronghain and he saw at the house of Mr Hume at Ealing, and also at the house of Mr Cox, in the spirit-rapping line. Sir Da* id, who admits that both Lord Brougham and he were puzzled with Mr Hume's performances, and could not account for them, as neither of them pretended to be expounders of conundrums, whether verbal or mechanical; but remarks that if they had been permitted to take a peep beneath the drapery of Mr Cox's table, they should have been spared the mortification of this confession, says: — Tt is not true, as stated, that a large dinner-table was moved about at Mr Cox's tn a most extraordinary man ner. It is not true that a large accordion was conveyed by an invisible, or any other agency into my hand. I took it up my self, and it would not utter, a sound.

SIB,— After reading the leading vticb of your «Tb tke Editor of ihe Inquirer and Commercial, Mews. contemporary last Friday, every man, of any sense at all, mast feel that the colony of which he forms a part is in a very pretty and comfortable situation. We all know that the Gazette has carried itself, up to the late meeting of Council, towards che Governor and his acts with, a certain degree of tenderness, and even in some measure attempted to palliate his con duct in Green's case. We may, therefore, take it for granted, as that paper now fires at point blank range against Governor Kennedy, that he has so managed affairs in the colony as to make every one desirous of flying- elsewhere, to escape the tyranny of his vcit paternal government But why should we, as free men and Englishmen, thus be driven away from that spot of land on...

NEW SOUTH WALES. We have news from Sydney to the 5th April. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 2 July 1856

NEW SOUTH WALES. We have uews 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 purchase! 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 Febrnary 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...
