The Republican and the Autocrat. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 2 July 1856

The Republican and the Autocrat. (From the Weeldu Disoatch. ) It would be grievously to misapprehend the feel ing as well as tlie principles of those who regard the war as a necessity to imagine that they entertain no sympathy for the motives and opinions represented by the Peelites, the Peace party, the Conser vative Doubters, and Lord John Russell, who, on this sub ject, monopolises in his own person a party of one. It would be very absurd and very presumptuous to attempt to maintain that there can be nothing said for views shared by men of such eminence, ability, diversity of sympathy, and political antecedents, against their interests, and to the prejudice of their reputation. The movement of tbese renegadoes was neither simultaneous nor consentaneous. The *' p«r verta' tell into it singly, in a state of isolation, by instalments, and at irregular intervals. The desert ers from the main bod/ of public opinion were stragglers. We own ourselves to have been over come by the conver...

INSOLVENCY. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 2 July 1856

INSOLVENCY. It can hardly be insisted on too strongly, that the insolvency laws should be designed and adapt ed merely to protect creditors from injury and debtors from oppression, without giving support or refuge to dishonesty on either side. The pre sent insolvency laws are little better than a shelter for knavery to hide in. It is monstrous that a man should be cleared of all future obligation to pay his debts because he cannot pay them uow^ This is no legitimate result of the protection which the law should throw around an honest debtor, hut it serves as a fortress for plunderer* to flee to, and in which they can maintain them selves with, the fruits of their ^successful spolia tions. It would be quite possible, and not at all difficult, to protect an honest debtor from oppres sion without upsetting all moral obligation in pe cuniary matters by force of law. Some contrivance ought to be resorted to with a view to save the interests of truth and integrity, as well as the commerci...

Miscellaneous. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 2 July 1856

$Uscdtauams. The Wolf's Attack. — It is no less cu rious than amusing to witness their ingeni ous mode of attack. If there is no snow, or hut little on the ground, two wolves approach ia the most playful aud caressing manner, lying, rolling, and frisking about, until the too credulous and unsuspecting victim is completely put off his guard by curiosity and familiarity. During this time the gang, squatted on their hind-quarters, look on at a distance. After some time spent in this way, the two assailants sepa rate, when one approaches the horse's head, the other his tail, with a slyness and cun ning peculiar to themselves. At this stage of the attack their frolicsome approaches become very interesting; it is in right good earnest; the former is a mere decoy, the latter is the real assailant, and keeps his eyes steadily fixed on the hamstrings or flank of the horse. The critical moment ia then watched, and the attack is simulta neous; both wolves spring at their victim the same instan...

The late Colonel Sibthorp. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 2 July 1856

The late Colonel Sibthorp. A Pabagbaph upon the death of the late distinguished member for Lincoln, appears in the columns of the Constilutionel of the 2l6t. That it was originally written as a squib there can be no doubt; bnt tbe gravity with which it has been literally translated and transferred to the columns of our Paris contemporary is not tbe least amusing fea ture. The Colonel Waldo de Laredo Sibthorp, whose death we lately announced, did not, as some journals have stated, represent Lon don in Parliament, bnt was member for the borough of Old Sarutn. He was, as his name indicates, of French origin, aud this explains the sentiments of affection which he always bore to our country, and which ap peared in all his speeches and writings. Co lonel Sibthorp, at the age of fifteen, entered the Royal Navy, and assisted at the great est naval battle of modern times, that of Navarino, where he received a slight wound in the left eye. However, not feelingtnuch sympathy for a sattor'e lif...

The Interior of Australia. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 2 July 1856

The Interior of Australia. Occasionally, in conversation with his in timate friends, Mr James Harrison, our late M. L. C, would allude to certain ideas he had formed, and conclusions he he had ar rived at regarding the interior of Australia. Reflecting on the descriptions of Sturt, Leichhardt, Mitchell, and other explorers, he was led by a chain of reasoning to the conclusion that that portion of Australia lying between, Spencer's Gulph and the Gulph of Carpentaria, was at no very re mote period the bed of an internal sea, and is still considerably below the level of the ocean, That Spencer's Gulph at no very remote period extended nearly to the shore of the Gulph. of Carpentaria, and that the same tract of country is still so far below the level of the ocean, that by cutting a eanal through, the sand ridges which encircle the upper portion of Spencer's Gulph, and separate the ocean from the interior basin, the waters of the ocean would again flow into their former channels and form...

Review. The Monarchs of the Main; or, Adventures of the Buccanneers. By George W. Thornbury, Esq. Hurst and Blackett. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 2 July 1856

Review. T'te Monarc7is of the Main ; or. Adventures of the Buccanneers. By George W. Thornbury, Esq. Hurst and Blackett. We liave to thank Mr Thornbury for a most wel come addition to our literature. Perhaps the work had been better condensed into two volumes; we could having willingly spared muck of the history of the monster Morgan — nevertheless, al together the ?work has great attractions, both, from the novelty of the subject, and the earnest, im passioned manner of its treatment. The buca neers are, in truth, a sort of people rather talked and written of than understood. We know them from certain exaggerated novels, and from the minor stage ; we have demoniacal buca neers, and bucaneers of the highest philanthropy — ? Howards afloat; in Mr Thornbury 's pages we Lave them, in the flesh ; as they really {ought and plundered, and ate and drunk, and lived and died. *' Providence ' — quoted our author — ' a French moral philosopher ventures to suggest, raised up the buccaneers to r...
