An Extraordinary Sesssiqn of the Legislative Council. It having been determined to convene ano ther meeting of the Council before the the usual annual meeting of the Council, a correspondent, well informed in political matters, and who is in a position to ascer tain the sentiments of members upon the public questions of the day, has kindly for warded to us an anticipatory report of such portions of the proceedings as relate to a subject in which we are all so deeply inter ested, viz., the Publican's Act.

Besides, h...

Correspondence. To the Editor of the Inquirer and Commercial News. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 16 July 1856
Correspondence. As a general rule, -we wish it to be understood that we do not identify ourselves with the opinions or expressions of our correspondents. &nbsp; &nbsp; To the Editor of the Inquirer and Commercial News. Sir, — As the ploughing and seed season must be nearly or quite over, can you inform me whether a certain gentleman on the Canning has divulged his secret as to the whereabouts of the gold, of the same quality , or anything nearly re sembling the specimen that was said to have been picked up in that quarter ? Several people have now returned in the Swan who are well acquainted with gold digging, and, I think he will never have a better opportunity, as we now really require gold to decrease our present liabilities, and in crease our prosperity. Your obedient servant, F. W. Perth, July 15, 1856.

PEACE. Blind and bleeding irom me tneiee, irom me wuir* of stroke and thrust, In the lists of the Crimea rest the knights athirst — adust; See Sir Winter, that grim warder, down his icy truncheon Sing 'Twixt the warriors, taking order for a trace until the spring. Then, when emerald blade and blossoms clothe with life the naked plain, Hand on throat, and blade on bosom, up to Death's work again. We at home our task are urging without rest for head or hand ; We are hammering, casting, forging, pointing bay onet ond brand; Through the land war-toil's fierce clamours from morn till even, swell, In our dockyards ring the hammers, on our quays rise shot and shell; Ecady hands in ample purses, ready lives to feed the War Bended brows and mutter'd curses, boding miscMcf to the Czar! We are free; our moods arc many; but for this our wills arc one; Rich man's pound, and poor man's penny go, nn gruuged, till this be done — Till the Muscovite be stricken, stricken fairly to his knee, England's...

KARS. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 23 July 1856
EARS VFrnM the Press.! There is only opinion abont the heroic defender* of Kars, and never, perhaps, has a military- deed, unsuccessful in its ultimate result, conferred more fame on its performers. Tbe condition of Kars was frightful. Townspeo ple and soldiers alike suffered all the horrors of fa mine. The former crowded round the General as he rode out of his quarters, and prayed him with all the eloquence of despair to seek some means of put ting an end to their misery. Women forced then way into his very rooms, and, throwing their starring children at his feet, imploring him rather to kill them at once than let them perish thus piecemeal for want of sustenance. — Lettcrsfirom Constantinople, Dec 11, and Erzeroum, Dec. 24, Within the leagot'd wall Brave Williams took his stand, To conquer or to fall At duty's high command.

Horticultural Society. Paper on the Slanufaclure of Wine, Olive Oil, and Dried Fruits, as practised in Spain. Communica ted to tbe Society by the Bight Bsr. Dr. Scrra. MANNER OF MAKING OLIVE OIL. 1st. — The Olives to make Oil should not be taken from tbe tree until ibey are quite rijje, which wiH be known by the blackish or dark blue colour, tliat they assume when they ars qui:c ripe. The Olives that may have fallen down from the tree after being quite ripe, can be collected also, if they are not spoiled. Then the Olives should be placed an boards, or on some very dry Soor to drv, taking special care to turn them every second day. Tha small olives, and aud those that have a meagre pulp, should not be gathered. 2ud. — When the skin of the Olives is wrinkled they should be thrown into a Mill, made for the purpose, in which the upper stone rolling on its side like a wheel on the floor stone, will make a paste of them, breaking even the seed stones into a thousand pieces. 3rd. — The OHv...

Conditional-Pardons. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 23 July 1856
Conditional-Pardons. A. correspondent inquires whether a con vict holding a ' ticket,' giving him leave to live in any part of the world except Great Britain, can be excluded from the colonies ? This is a point on which there appears to be so much misunderstanding that it may not be out of place to direct attention to a case recently reported in the .Melbourne pa pers. Richard Jones, a most respectable looking man, was charged at the Police with being an absentee from Swan River. Detective Stephen Oliver deposed that be had known the prisoner in Adelaide, and met him in Melbourne on the previous day. He also knew him, it appeared in Western Australia, as being 'on his ticket,' and with the rest of the convicts there, under his (Mr Oliver's) charge. The prisoner, he stated had acknowledged that bis sentence was not yet completed, but that he had re ceived a conditional pardon. On this the prisoner put in the subjoined letter from Captain Freeling, Surveyor-General of this colony: ' E...

CONVICTS FROM WESTERN AUSTRALIA. To the Editor of the Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 23 July 1856
CONVICTS FROM WESTERN AUSTRALIA. To the Editor of the Araus. Sir. — Tour leading article under the above title I read with no uncommon in terest, having been many years in that Co lony, and devoted both time and attention to the Convict question. So long as Western Australia continues to be a penal settlement, will we be period ically visited with conditional-pardon men, expirees &c, &c, (whether they made Adelaide the entrepot or not), as the aim of nearly all confined there is to behave welL to enable them to get a commutation of sentence and visit this important province. Victoria alone (and I question if united with the other portions of free Australia) could not dictate terms to the home Govern ment for the suppression ^of transportation to Swan River, and as an evil exists attend ing such a system which we cannot alto gether avoid, there can be no great harm in striving to obtain some good, perhaps, out of it. Prior to quitting Swan River, a short time back, I ...
VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 23 July 1856
VICTORIA. From the Argus of 19th inst, we quote the fol lowing account of the markets: — The week that has just closed has been the dull est of the season, notwithstanding that the fine weather at the commencement caused an appearance of reaction. The country buyers have kept out of the market, except for small parcels to supply pre sent wants. The nncertain state of the weather and the scarcity of cartage have checked this branch of the trade tor the present, lower rates being looked for. The sales of merchandise by auction have not been heavy this week, nor have they been well at tended. The arrivals of imported goods have been very moderate, those from foreign ports comprising three onlv ? the Athclstone, from Liverpool, with a general cargo- the E. Koppiscb, from San Fran cisco, with flonr; 'and the Falstaff, from Calcutta, with rice, wheat, an! oats.
A Home for Her Majesty's Thieves. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 23 July 1856
A Home for Her Majesty's Thieves. Giving Mr Price, the Inspector General of Penal Establishments, full credit for zeal aud efficiency, we confess that it seems to us somewhat remarkable that he cannot make the prisoners of Victoria earn their own living. Yet, in his report for the year 1855, we find that while the average cost per man was £75 10s 0|d, the estimated average value of each man's work was only £46 17s lOd. Although fully admitting that ' the most exacting supervision cannot obtain from the bondsman the same amount (of work) as is sell'-iniposed by the free'' we cannot understand the vastness of the disproportion between what free men can earn voluntarily, aud what it appears pri soners are made to earn. The roughest kind of unskilled labour has seldom since the discovery of gold fallen much below 8s per diem in price, and has generally been much higher. But even at that rate the free man's annual earnings would amount to upwards of £120, between which and £45 the discre...

NEW SOUTH WALES. May 16. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 23 July 1856
WEW SOUTH WALES. May 16. General trade still continues dull, although _ we have had several extensive auction sales of varions classes of merchandise. At these good prices have, in most cases, been realised: but the weeks trade has, to a considerable extend been confined to the auction rooms. A disinclination has been evinced to make large purchases otherwise than at auction sales. We briefly notice the principle of these. The spirit trade has been rather more active than we have re cently noticed, but this refers principally to two ar ticles, viz^ brandy snd whisky. There have been a few private sales of Martell's brandy at 13s 9d per gallon, and there are holders at 14s.; this is a shade lower than last weeks quotation. Several pnrchases of whisky have also been made at 6s. to 6s 6d. per gallon. This is to meet the demand for the winter trade. Whisky of a good brand has been scarce in the market, and prices were considered as nominal; recent arrivals have, however, brought a sligh...
