The Inquirer & Commercial News. Quid verum atque decens, curo et rogo, et omnis in hoc sum WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 20, 1856. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 20 August 1856

Quid verum atque deceits, euro et rogo, et ompiis in hoc sum t^ WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 20, 1856. The list of prizes to be awarded at the en suing Horticultural Show has been publish ed, and, with few exceptions, the projected awards appear to be fair and judicious. It is of course a difficult matter to make ar rangements which will be satisfactory to all parties, and those who pay attention to par ticular branches of horticulture naturally suppose those branches more especially worthy of distinction in the prize list, and if they hold an inferior position, manifest some dissatisfaction. The only rule to be followed on such occasions is that which we hare no doubt has been adopted by the Committee — the selection of those articles for special notice whose successful cultivation may best tend to promote the general be nefit of the Colony, and accordingly we find that amongst vegetables potatoes obtain a prominent position ; among fruits we have oranges and lemons, and among dried fruits ra...

New South Wales. Our latest dates are to June 20. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 20 August 1856

New South Wales. Our latest dates are to June 20. Paris Universal Exhibition. — By a letter which Sir Alfred Stephen, the Chairman of the New South Wales Commission, has lately re ceived from Mr (now Sir) Win. Maearthur, the indefatigable Commissioner for this colony at Paris, it appears that a detailed report of the re sults of the colonial contributions may soon be expected. ' Mr Maearthur has Labored unceasingly to get full justice done to our products; and had the interests of the colony been in less zealous hands, the list of honors and rewards assigned to New South Wales might have been materially ab breviated. It is deeply to be regretted that tiie apathy of the colonists themselves has prevented more extensive acknowledgments. In. anticipa tion of official details, it may be stated that one gold medal, nine silver medals, twelve bronze medals, and twenty-two certificates of honorable mention have been awarded to contributors from this colony. These medals, together with ihaa...

To the Editor of the Inquirer and Commercial News. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 20 August 1856

To the Editor of the Inquirer and Commercial Notes. Sib, — Through the medium of the Press I wish to ask the Government why foreign ships touching at the Port of Albany arc denied any protection, or in other words, why the magistrates have orders uot to grant warrants to ship-masters for the apprehension of deserters ? It is certainly destroying that national comity which exists between all nations, when protec tion is refused their ships in British waters. Having visited all the other ports of Western Australia, I find this a law peculiar to Albany alone. The time has been, and is now, that the people depend on American ships to take their potatoes, &c., and receive in ex change many articles they could not well get other wise. The question is, are American ships an advan tage or disadvantage to the colony ? They increase the revenue, therefore, they ought to have all the pro tection so far as it lays in tlie power of the Govern ment to afford it to them. I hope tbe governm...

To the Editoe of ' The Inquires ajjd Comjuebciaij News.'

First. Sir, I deny its necessity — nothing has been brought forward in a tangible shape to prove that onr 12,000 inhabitants are such a set of universal drunkards as to require each a 6tringent law.

The Deputation. The following letters have been transmitted to us for publication. The former was read by the Governor to the gentlemen deputed by the meet ing to wait on His Excellency, the latter is his re ply to their request for the temporary suspension of the Publican's Act : — Parsonage, York, August 2, 1856. Sir, — The office and duties of a clergyman justly preclude him from taking any part in the general politics of the day, yet there are measures enacted by every Government the influence of which, for irood or evil, is more or less exclusively of a moral nature. In such enactments it is customary to allow that bo class of men can claim a deeper interest than the clergy* and that apart from individual capacity, no body of men have a stronger claim to be heard. When a measure of this nature, directly tending to raise the moral and religious condition of the peo ple, is the subject of much misrepresentation and misunderstanding, and when a combined effort is made to nullify i...

TASMANIA. Latest dates, 17th June. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 20 August 1856

TASMANIA Latest dates, 17th June. The Sydney sovereigns had been made a legal tender in the colony. Repoet on the Gold-Fields. — The Bev. W. B. Clarke's letter, reporting tlie result of his visit to the Fingal gold-fields, appeared in Tuesday's Gazette. He states that although he had declined a regular exploration ol the field, he had visited tlie reported auriferous district along the South Esk and St. Paul's Rivers, but the continued rains had prevented him from taking anything more than a cursory view of the country. He topo graphical and geological features of the district appeared to be analagous to those of many gold fields in New South Wales and Victoria. The first examination was favourable to the expecta tion of gold, and this impression was strengthen ed by the presence of quartz veins and quartz detritus, which abounded on the slopes of tie slate hills near the South Esk. He defines the struc ture of the country es agreeable with thatof some of the auriferous regions nort...

COLONIAL NEWS. — ?» South Australia A correspondent under date 7th July writes as follows — ' There is a great want of soinelliing to stu ns up here, as business is very dull ; peace, per haps, may cause English capitalists to direct their attention to this part of the world. The laborers and artizanfi still continue to emigrate to Victoria, and their place is filled by fresh and unskilled hands from the United Kingdom. A very large number of Chinese arrive here weekly, en route to Melbourne, and afford good trade for coasters and teamsters, grocers for rice, and to a small extent, butchers. There was a riot amongst some of them at Glen Osmond, where they were encamped on their way overland. Their moaey, the joint stock capital, had been entrusted to a treasurer who declared he had lost it; this the mejority would not believe, and made preparations to ex ecute summary justice on the presumed delin quent by hanging him.
