The Inquirer & Commercial News. Quid verum atque decens, curo et rogo, et omnis in hoc sum. WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 27, 1856. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 27 August 1856

Quid verum atgtce decens, euro et rogo, el omnis in hoc sum WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 27, 1856. The advent of representative government in the neighbouring colonies has placed at their disposal the entire management of their waste lands, and already some stir has been made by the different Legislatures, and measures taken to introduce a system more adapted to the particular requirements of each colony, tnau tnat vvmen nas nitnerto been in force. As far as we can learn, the principal change advocated by the people of the adjoining settlements does not so much affect the price of land, as it affects the re lations between the fee-simple proprietor and the squatter. The object of the popular party seems to be rather to throw more land into the market than to reduce its upset price, and they seek to do this by releasing, as far as possible, those large blocks leased for pastoral purposes, and completely locked up, and shut out from ordinary competition, and offering them for public sale. We hav...

To tJte Editor of the Inquirer and Commercial News. COMMISSARIAT WISDOM. SIR, — The Champion, from Adelaide, via King George's Sound, arrived yesterday, bring ing six prisoners, and 12,000 sovereigns for the Commissariat Department. The captain reports that, but for information given him by one of the prisoners, the vessel would have been taken by the others. When, the Commissary General can get as much money as he needs here at par, wliy will he run the risk of importing specie, and pay freight, &c., thereon. A merchant's clerk would be turned out for such, blundering. John Bull's clerks alone seem to be allowed to exercise their (iu) discre tion. Tours, &c, MERCATOR. August 23, 1856.

[ADVERTISEMENT.]— mUowatfs Pills, a certain cure lor Asthmatic Complaints and spit ting of blood: — E. Andrews, of Owen's River, Victoria, suffered with asthma, combined with an accumulation of phlegm on the chest, and con tinual spitting of blood ; the coughing completely shook him to pieces, and rendered his life a com plete misery, as he neither enjoyed rest by night or by day. He abstained from everything likely to increase the disorder, and paid a large sum for medicine and advice, and all without doing him any good, indeed, he found that each day matters became worse. After every other remedy had failed to benefit him, he had recourse to Hol loway's Pills, (well rubbing the Ointment into the chest night and morning), and by persevering with these remedies for nine weeks, he was com pletely cured. Although ten months have elapsed since this cure was effected, he has never since been visited with his old complaints.

Cash Payments. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 27 August 1856

Gash Payments. Extract from the Life of the late Samuel Bud' get, an eminent Bristol merchant, 1854 ,? by William Arthur, A.M. The Rev. B. Carvosso, whx- knew him, and saw clearly the originality and worth of his character, has furnished me with many valuable glimpses of his life, both in ward and outward. On the point now on hand he says.- — While he would so readily give away thousands of gold and silver out of the sale room and country house, in business he was rigid about pence and days. A man in small business, his neighbour, had dealt with him contrary to rule; he ordered flour at the end of the twenty-eight days — the period of credit — but did not bring the amount of the former orders. The flour was in the waggon, the carter on the way with it. The mistake was discovered; a messenger was dispatched with orders to give the poor man one sack of flour, bring back tiie rest, and henceforth cease to do business with him. To maintain a small business principle he would readily sub...

Victoria. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 27 August 1856

Victoria. New Cure for Scab in Sheep. — Mr W. Lockart Morton has published the following letter in the ' Argos,' on the subject of a new and very novel cure for scab in sheep. It is addressed to the flock owners of Victoria: — 'Gentlemen — About sixteen months ago, impressed with a conviction that a cur rent of electric fluid would cure the scab in sheep, T applied it to one with perfect sneeess. The discovery being of interest iu a scientific point of view, I deter mined to communicate it to the Boyal Society of Lon don, but, at the suggestion of Alfred Selwyn, Esq., Government Geologist, I applied tiie same remedy to another sheep, more scabby than the first. This sheep was also perfectly cured, became fat, and, like the other, has since been slaughtered. Having com. municated the discovery, through my brother in Ed inbuigh, to various scientific bodies, and applied without success, to the local Government to institute an inquiry into its merits, I beg now to bring the matter unde...

faamwoniknec. fkSTAa a general rule, we wish, it to be understood that toe do not identify ourselves with the opinions To the Editob of ' The Inquibek and OoiuiERriAL 'News.' SIR, — I think it will be admitted by nearly all classes of the community that the ' Public House Ordinance,' 1856, together with the increased du ties on spirits, Sic., amounts to a prohibition to a private individual to hold a publican's license. It appears also a source of much anxiety to the Go vernor in particular, to effect a diminution of drunkenness and its attendant evils — immorality and crime. Now, Sir, I would suggest that the management of public houses be entirely in the hands of the Government, tbat the office of pub lican be as much an appointment of the Governor as the Collector of Customs ; thus, for instance — a locality requires public house accommodation ; the Government open a house and appoint a per son, say at £300 per annum, the said person being amenable to the authorities as provided ...

Stflcat mid gsiuestic $nid\i%eucc. We have been given to understand that several clergymen were requested to state their views with reference to the Publican's Bill, but that they declined to commit themselves to an expres sion of opinion upon political matters. We need scarcely state that there was one exception to this praiseworthy determination, as the letter of the dissentient was published in last week's issue. The house of Mr DeLeech was burglariously entered on Sunday evening, and a box of jewellery ^ valued at £17, stolen. We believe the police have ' some clue by which they hope to apprehend the offenders. A man named Shone demanded £16 salvage upon some boxes of tea taken from the wrecked boat ' Antelope.' The owners offered him £11, which he refused, and the matter was taken into the Magistrates* Court, Fremantle. The bench de cided that he was only entitled to £10, and mulcted him in costs 10s ; so that he was a loser by 30s by his attempt at extortion. Ebbatuh. — In the...

House of Commons. TASMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 3 September 1856

House of Commons. TASMANIA. Mr T. Dunconibe said that during the last year a committee 'was appointed by the Legislative assembly cf Tasmania, formerly known by the name of Van Diemen's Land, to inquire into the working of the convict system. During the progress of the investi gation the committee required the presence and evidence cf the superintendent of the convict department in the colony. That officer was accordingly summoned to attend, but refused, and prevented his subordinates also from attending. The Assembly ex ercised the means vested in them to enforce their authority, but the governor, Sir H. Young, seemed to have sided with the go vernment officer, and, unexpectedly and without any notice, prorogued the Legisla tive Assembly; thus putting an end to the investigation of the committee and paralys ing the legitimate exercise of the undoubted rights of the Assembly. Ke wished to know whether this little coup d'etat on the part of Sir H. Young bad met with the approbation o...

Cape of Good Hope. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 3 September 1856

Gape of Good Hope Ike late rumours respecting disturbances in Cafferland are now proved to have been wholly without foundation. Thanks are due to the Governor for the readiness with which this contradiction was given in the Assembly on Monday night last, on the authority of the latest official despatches. Accounts since then received confirm the assurances of the Governor, that the country has been rarely in a position of greater security. The following is a passage from a letter dated on the immediate frontier, April 30: — 'As far as -we can learn from private sources, there does not appear the least in dication of war among the Frontier Caffers. Life and property seem secure. No thefts. If there is a plot, it is very deep-laid.' The writer goes on to say that one cause of alarm, the number of Caffers seen leaving the colony, is owing to a rather large emi gration from Hub Cafler settlement, long since made, under authority of Government, in a part of the (West) Beaufort division, ...

COLONIAL NEWS. THE POTATOE MARKET. To the Editor of the New-Zeal^nber. Sir. — For the satisfaction and encourage ment of those unfortunates who like myself have this season engaged in the_ potatoe trade — although I trust very few have suffered or will suffer so severely — I subjoin an extract of a letter from my brother who took up a cargo of these unprofitable vege tables to Melbourne in the ' Flying Cloud' in February last. After saying that he had succeeded in disposing of his cargo at an average of £5 per ton, from their being a fine sample, he states that ' it is the general opinion here amongst those best acquainted with the markets that the price of potatoes will rise considerably when the present supplies are exhausted, and therefore those who have not disposed of their potatoes will do well to hold on for two months or so, when they will in all probability realise a fair price. To bring potatoes at this time to Melbourne is ' to bring coals to New castle,' the enormous qua...

To the Editor of the Inquirer and Commercial News. SIB, — Now that the lambing season is quite at an end, I will proceed to offer a few remarks, which, I trust, will prove accptable to many, more especially to the inexperienced, who, by the way, will do well to listen to the suggestions of one who has had 20 years' experience in grazing and breeding sheep in Western Australia. Now the lambing season is over, I say; yes, and frightful the result! Your correspondents have stated that 50 per cent have been saved, but I doubt it I have been told that one grazier alone lost 900 Iambs from a flock of 1100 ewes, and some have saved 100 lambs from 300 ewes, some 300 lambs from 600 ewes, and so on. But wherefore this un profitable and unfortunate loss in the sheep-grazing districts? One says the bush fires have destroyed all the grass, and another will say the flocks are too large, but I say it is the season chosen for lambing, whieh season brings with it all the disasters which the two fore...
