Tuesday, July 29. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 13 August 1856

Tuesday, July 29. Sergt. Major Cooper — By the Court— Between the 1st end 10th July, Pensioners payments were made to the amount of £185 12s 8d by Capt. Foss in xay presence. Mr Wallace Bickley — By the prisoner— The docu ment produced is in my band writing, Leisg an acknowledgment of holding a Bill of sale over the prisoner's property. It is the document I referred to in my previous examination. I do not recollect sending for my clerk, Mr Solomon, to my residence and telling him to make out Captain Foes' account, and if I did, I was so ill at the time, I cannot say what passed between us. The prisoner, at the time of the execution of the Bill of Sale, might have had other property than that mentioned in the Bill, but I do not know that he had. The prisoner's furniture at the sale by auction netted about 200?, but that in cluded some farming implements. CoL Bruce asked me if I would purchase a remission ticket as the ex ecutor of Mr Vigors. I said yes, if we could come to terms. I w...

EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 13 August 1856

EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE. We arc indebted to Sir Homfray, who returned to the colony in the 'Scotch Lassie,' for English papers to 23rd March. That gentleman states that when the 'Scotch lassie ' was leaving Melbourne, on 4th June, the ' James Barnes ' arrived bringing English news up to 10th AoriL The mail had not been lauded, but it was stated that Peace had been declared, which, from the tenonr of papers of earlier date, appears to be, in the highest degree, probable. Our space will only permit us to give, this week, a brief summary of the news: — The 'Treaty of Paris. ' is preparing for signature, the mam points having been arranged and a sub-committee, comprising one representative for each power, appointed to draw up the terms of the treaty. It ie stated that Bussia has consented to abandon Nicholaieffand Cherson as naval arsenals, and that she concedes that the Black Sea and the Sea of AzotC shall be open to the trade of all the world.

Monday, August 4. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 13 August 1856

Monday. August 4. On the Court being opened the Prisoner banded in a written defence, for the conside ration of which the Court was again, cleared. Qa its being re-opened the following De teuce was read : — Mr. President and Gentlemen, — ? After a trial so protracted, and an investigation iuto matters of sc serious a nature, I will not detain you by speaking of the painful feelings such a posi tion as mine must engender. I will only entreat your most earnest attention and careful considera tion of this my defence, and without making any further preliminary observations, proceed at once to answer the charges laid against nic. The first charge accuses me with conduct highly unbecoming the character of an officer and a gentle man, and three instances are specified, which, if proved, the prosecution seek to substantiate that charge; and although I am glad in having an op portunity of explaining the matter there alleged against me, yet I submit that this Court Martial ought not to 'hare ...

Tuesday August 5th. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 13 August 1856

Tuesday August. 6th. The Officiating Deputy Judge Advocate read the following reply to the Prisoner's defence ; — President and Meittbers. It devolves upon me in the capacity of Public Prosecutor before this Court, to offer Eomc com ments upon the defence which was yesterday laid before you, and in so doing I trust that I shall not overstep the line of my duty by pressing in anywise unduly against one placed in such au unfortunate position as the prisoner now before you. The prisoner objects to the preamble of the First Charge inasmuch as it is not conched m terms of the 80th Article of War. It was not so couched, simply because there was no intention of characterising as ' scandalous and infanicus' the transactions al ledged in the instances which it introduces; but those transactions, agreeably to the customs of war in like cases, £hnve been described as highly un becoming an officer and a gentleman, and, as such, fall under the 108th Article of War. It is the glory of the militar...

Mr Crawford's Speech on the Rail. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 20 August 1856

Mr Crawford's Speech on the Bail. (From Herapa'ICs Railway and Commer cial Journal, May 3.) Taking the subject which first presents itself to us in the report — I mean the ques tion of capital — you will see clearly stated the extent to which the capital of the Com pany has been called up — that of the ;£10, 731,000, the capital of the company, about 1\ millions have been issued in shares and debentures, the debentures being equivalent in value to shares at one uniform rate of 5 per cent. We have now, considering that we have about four millions of capital fully paid up, arrived at that period when we think we may, in deference to the opinion which is generally entertained on the subject here, consolidate that portion of our share capital into stock. In order to enable us to do this, it is necessary that we should ask certain powers from Parliament; for as we now stand, there does exist a certain small, I may say, almost accidental, advantage to the holders of the original experimen...

ITALY. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 20 August 1856

ITALY. (From the Times.) The war -which has just concluded began with narrow means for the attainment of a certain limited object. When 10,000 En glishmen were to be sent out to strengthen the representations of the Government as to the evacuation of two distant provinces, the world hardly felt that a crisis in Eu pean history was at hand, and that a new epoch was about to succeed to the reign and principles of the Holy Alliance. Yet few can now doubt that, not only in the East, but universally, a new and happier system has received the sanction of national opin ion. Partly through necessity, partly from experience ot past failure and dreaa ot ais quiet, even absolute Governments are not unwilling to concede something to the de mands of right and justice. The pressure of class on class, of nation on nation, is found to produce an equilibrium too un stable for a prudent statesman to trust, and even a courtier who knows nothing in a State but the Sovereign and his soldiers, is not unw...

NEWS TO 27TH APRIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 20 August 1856

NEWS TO 27th APRIL. The Biixof tiie Wah.— Our pnblic expenditure, under ordinary circumstances, is very uniform, and there is no great difficulty iu assigning any excess to its proper causes. Before the war our expenditure was usually but little over .£50,000,000, which had become has much the figure of our establishment as a gentlemen's £5,000 or £10,000 a year. In the financial year just ended it has been £88,428,345 in round numbers £40,000,000 more than in peace. At all events we may certaiuly say thai we spent last year £35,000,000 more than we should have done but for that little freak of the Emperor Nicholas. This appears in another way. The excess of expen diture over income in the 3'car ended March 31st, 185C, as stated in the return, was £22,723,S54 al though the increased income-tax and ether war taxes had produced about £15,000,000. .Adding thus what we did pay out of the taxes to what we tlid not, the result is near j£3S,000,000. To meet this excess, wo contracted in di...
