TASMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 30 July 1856

TASMANIA. The Daily News reports of the markets on the 17th May. We have scarcely any alteration to note in our markets during the past week. Trade continues very duir.ind the high rents which many have to pay are felt to be oppressive. The wheat market has declined about Is per bushel during the week, and may now be quoted at 9s per bushel of 64lbs. Flour is also to be bought on easier terms; £24 per ton of 2,240 lbs. is now the market rate for best quality. Potatoes have slightly advanced. We believe, however, that there are no buyers over £4 per ton for a quantity, and np to the latest advices from Mel bourne and Geelong there is no outlet for this article. Onions, good samples, arc songht after for the Sydney market at better prices, but we believe that £12 to £13 is the highest price that has been given. Brandy is firm at our quotations, with small stocks on hand. Rum is scarce and sought after, but prices have not advanced materially. ?'* * Bottled Beer. — Byass's is in demand...

The Prophetess. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 30 July 1856

The Prophetess. Some excitement had been created by the committal of a number of persons belonging to a sect known as the ' Wakemanites,' on a charge of murder. The accused included the ' prophetess' of the sect Rhoda Wake man, who had been accustomed to hold meetings during a number of years at New Haven, where she made many converts. lhe correspondent ot the Irtbune gives the following particulars relative to the woman and her doctrines and followers: — ' Although a great deal has been published about these strange people, no exposition of their doctrines has ever yet been given to tbe public, and but few persons even in this city know what their doctrines really are. In order to know what they really do believe I have visited the prophetess almost daily since her confinement to jail, and after re peated solicitations, I have persuaded her to write what she calls ' fundamental prin ciples of her doctrine for me to publish. I requested her also to give a true account of the attempt...

United States. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 30 July 1856

United States. An aged Chief. — His Excellency O'Brien Skadogh, says die Rochester Demo crat, a chief of tbe Six Nations, who was born in 1752, was in this city yesterday. This aged chief, now 104 years of age, was sent to France to be educated previous to the Revolution. He returned to this coun try atter going through the medical school in Paris, in company with the young Mar quis de Lafayette, whom he followed through the wars of the American Revolution, and did service in that campaign. He was at the battle of Brandy wine where he at ended upon General Lafayette, binding up his wonnds, received in the affair. During the war he received a bayonet wound in the right lung, which even now causes him un easiness in case he takes a cold. Although more than a century has passed over his head he is still hale and strong, erect and lofty in his port. His Masonic brethren greeted the aged chieftain, and contributed to his necessities — for although so old he has not been all the time accu...

Mr Duffy on the Colonial Office. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 30 July 1856

Mr DufiV oa the Colonial Office. In the course of a speech delivered by Mr Duffy in Sydney, he made the following observations respecting the Colonial Of fice: — Since I have been in Parliament there have been six colonial ministers in rapid succession. Their despatches are as like as eggs. The truth is, that all these porten tous instructions for 'our trusty and well beloved Governor' are manufactured by a. very notable and able gentleman named Merivale, a permanent Secretary in the Co lonial office. Once it was King Stephen who ruled the colonies, now it is Queen Me rivale. The despatch may be signed John Pakington, Sidney Herbert, Newcastle, George Grey, John Russell, or William Molesworth, but the author of it is infallibly Mr Merivale. Lord Derby, who ought to -? be well informed on the subject, once de clared in the Lords that Cabinets hated the Colonies — each had his own department to mind — and of the little time each Minister can give from his own department, he is not wil...

Victoria. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 30 July 1856

Victoria. Gisaxtic Newspapers. — The Melbourne Herald and Argus lately assumed immense proportions, a single publication of each of those journals comprehending 54 pages ? This enormous increase is due to the pre sence of the electoral lists, which were pub lished in full, with qualifications and all otner particulars. .a.oove V3 pages were so occupied in each journal, constituting the most extraordinary advertisement of which we ever heard. Immigration. — The official return of ar rivals and departures at this colony for the month of April presents a great improve ment on the month of March, but is still much behind previous monthly averages. An analysis of the return affords us the following results: — Arrivals from the United Kingdom ... 946 Ditto from foreign ports ? 32 ? 97S Departures for the United Kingdom . . . 266 Ditto for foreign ports ? 357 ? 623 Balance iu favour of the colony ... 355 Arrivals'from Australian colonies ... 1985 Departures for ditto ? 1098 Balance in favo...

The Cost of Government. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 30 July 1856

The Cost of Government. We have shown on several recent occasions that for the general purposes of Government— exclusive vf public works — the sum of £2 18s. per head oa the whole population of this province was charged du ring the year 1855. This has been disputed. The facts are, however, as we have stated them. The deductions of simple arithmetic arc not to be over turned; and with all tbe official figures before us, and after a most careful revision of the question, we once moie tell the people of this colony that the various disbursements of the Government amounted in 1S55 to £2 14s per head of the population, in cluding man, woman, aud child; and that this £2 14s. per head did not include public works. We have also stated that this £2 14s per head for 1855, absorbed the whole of tbe Ordinary Revenue and a further sum, taken from tbe Land Fund, amounting to three-tenths of the Ordinary Revenue. This statement we also re-affirm, and we challenge refutation. An attempt has been ma...

The Priest of Blarney. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 30 July 1856

The Priest of Blarney. There are many spots in every country consecrated by the reverence of ages and sanctified by the perfume of tradition — green oases in the uniform sandy deserts of mo dern prose. The Greeks have their Mara thon, the Switzer his Teli's Chapel ; the Scotchman, in patriotic drawl, loves to re Wiltshire shepherd to point out, with clum sy gesture, the glories of Stonehenge. Nor are our Irish fellow subjects wanting in this patriotic lore. They, too, have in the Blarney-stone a monument dear to the ge nius of the people, not only as a memorial of the past, but as a palladium of beautiful Erin. Not the most snarling critic oC Ire land's virtues — and among Irishmen such a one mast be sought — who has ever ven tured upon the unsavoury suggestion that her children did not invariably combine in their own persons every moral, intellectual, and physical quality at its highest point of perfection, would deny for a moment that the gift of eloquence has been conceded to the...

Port Gregory. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 30 July 1856

Port Gregory From this district we learn that there is twenty tons of pig-lead ready for carting at the Geraldine Mine, and it is supposed that sufficient lead will be smelted to keep the teams constantly employed for two months. Some alarm is expressed at the rumoured contemplated removal of the Hiring Depot from Port Gregory to Champion Bay. The crops are looking well. One farmer, Mr                   Bibra, has upwards of one hundred acres of wheat and barley in excellent plight, and should the season be propitious, he estimates an ample yield, the most of his land being manured with guano. The whaling party have taken two humpbacks and send to Fremantle about 8 tons of oil in the Sarah.

iftUjCCttattCOttS. PnESEBvrNG Eggs. — A correspondent of the New York Country Gentleman .'gives as a recipe for preserving eggs, which we think is new to this country. We shall be glad to know if any of our readers have ever tried the system. The writer is an exporter of eggs. He says: — ' I take a pine barrel (an old 6sh barrel well cleaned out answers very well), and put in the egprs when they are sound, fresh, and clean. I then cover them with lime-water, made like common whitewash; the lime settles around the eggs, and the water stands on the top of the lime (the eggs all under lime). Look at the barrel once in a while, to see if four inches of water, little more or less, covers the m hole. If the water is dried up, the lime gets hard and they are difficult to take oat when wanted, and you have to carry them some where else to wash off the lime; so always keep water on the top. This lime-water must be made at least two weeks before you pour it on tbe css^s, or your eggs will be ...

Quid verum atque deceits, euro et rogo. et omnis in hoe sum. WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 6, 1856. The settlers must not be too sanguine as to the result of to-day's meeting. They must not expect that the Home Government will immediately comply with their request, but consider the present proceedings as simply the first step towards the attainment of their object — the destruction of nominee ism' and the introduction of representation. The priviliges enjoyed hj the sister settle ments were not obtained without much previous* agitation in the colonies, and among their supporters in the parent state, and although, by the concessions they have obtained, the principle of self-goverment is recognized, and we shall not experience the delays, and have to battle as they did on that score, yet we must not anticipate a too ready concession of all for which we peti tion.

To the Editor of the Inquirer and Commercial Sik,— Any person readiug the leading article in your conteinpary of Friday last would be led to be lieve that McArthur incited the people to rebel against their lawful authorities, and proposed other unconstitutional measures in order to carry out his ideas. Such, however, I am happy to sav is not the case, but, on the contrary, while he asserts his unqua lified, disapprobation of His Excellency's acts, and his opinion that his future government will be even worse than the past, he has not been altogether for getful of that respect due to the representative of her Majesty, nor proposed any scheme either unlawful or seditious. If letters of a similar tone as McArthur's had not appeared before in the public journals, and His Excellency'6 acts were not deserving of such stric tures, there would have been great cause for the comments of such a eclibrity, but when such has been the case, nay, some even more offensive, and among them must be en...

TO THE EDITOR OF "THE INQUIRER AND COMMERCIAL NEWS." [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 6 August 1856

To the Enrron of ' The Inquirer and f'.OMMT'Rrj AT. XEWS ' SIR. — Is it true that, although by the provi sions of the new Publican's Act, heavy penalties are imposed upon innkeepers selling liquors before or after the hours specified, or allowing any gaming whatever to take place on their premises, yet by the payment of the paltry sum of 10s or £1 they will be permitted at any hour to dispose of any quantity of liqnor, or allow any description of gambling, or, for aught I know to the contrary, even of villany or rascality, to be practised? If this be correct, the old saying that 'money makes the mare to go,' is in this instance truly verified ; and I would ask whether such a species of legis lation is not calculated to propagate, rather than remove that ' moral cancer of the land' of which His Excellency appears to have as much horror as if labouring under a violent attack of nightmare? By this axiom, our Government seems willing to do any sort of business according1 to price receiv...
