To the Editor of the Inquirer and Commercial News. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 3 September 1856

To the Editor of the Inquirer and Commercial News. SIR, — His Excellency's ardent desire to tax the people will serve materially to create the same ar dent desire in the latter to evade, as much as possible, the uncalled-for and vexatious taxation; and the settlers, therefore, if they can find a substitute for leaf tobacco, will most undoubtedly do so. The Co lonial Secretary thought the flockowner's backs were broad enough to bear extra taxation upon their wcu paying flocks; and the little-great member of Coun cil, who is always ready with his ' yes, yes, yes, ah, yes,' to everything mooted by his master, lie too thought such taxation very wise, and could speak upon that subject from experience. As a substitute for tobacco, the receipt which you published in the Commercial News for February, 1855, has been tried by a nockowner in this district, and has been found to answer equally as well as tobacco. It was an ex tract from a Van Diemen's Land paper, and the only ingredients were s...

[ADVERTISEMENT.]— HoUowat/'s -.Ointment and Pills have again cured a Bad leg after 17 years sufiering. Henry Webster, of Goulbourn, N. S. W. was a martyr for seventeen years with a bad leg, there were several sores on it from the knee to the ankle, many reputed remedies were tried, bat with out benefiting him, indeed, they made him worse rather than better; after every other remedy had failed, he determined to give a fair trial to Hoiloway's Ointment and Pills; these two remedies after a few weeks perseverance, caused such an improved state of the blood, that the leg completely healed up; and in two months he was a stronger and healthier man than ever he had been in his life, to the astonishment of every one. BROUGHT in from the bush, one horse about 13 hands high, bright bay, no brand, white saddle mark on withers, aged ; also one horse, branded C M under saddle, with a piece of rope round neck, much saddle marked and shod on fore feet.

To the Editor qf the Inquirer and Commercial News. SIR, — I will again resume my remarks on die Publican's Act. The great piece o f injustice perpe trated by die Bill is that provided in die 12th Clause which gives a tyrannical power to die Governor to, decide what shall be die number of die public houses, inFfregfl of leaving it to die action of compe tion and public requirements, as in all other trades This part of die subject has, however, been so well handled by yourself, and has excited such general indignation, tiiat I shall allude no further to it But tbe power given by diis clause is still further ' exceeded by that given to die Governor by Clause 23, which proves that the principal though not die avowed purpose of die BUI, is nothing bat to raise money to enable die authorities to carry out any fanciful idea — such as die new police perhaps — tiiey may choose to waste it on. By this clause die Governor and he alone may authorise die license of defaulters, if they pay an ad ...

Appendix to the Memorial on Steam i Communication with Australia, Presented to the British Government by Mr. Wentworth's No. 1. SUPPRESSION OF THE AUSTRALIAN POSTAL STEAM SERVICE. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 3 September 1856

Appendix to the Memorial on Steam Communication with Australia, Presented to the British Govern ment by Mr. Wentworth's Com mittee. No. I. SUPrBESSION OP THE ACSTliAUAN POSTAL 6T£AH SERVICE. Their lordships are referred on this head to the communication addressed by this association on 15th August, 1S55, to the late Sir Wiiliam Molesworth, as secretary of State for the Colonies; tis also to the excellent letter addressed by the London Aus tralian Postal Association on tbe same subject, un der date 4th December, 1855, to the present Secre tary cf State for the Colonies. .From these documents it appears that, although the Australian Postal Line was peremptorily sup pressed, the China .Line was maintained intact, the relative importance of the two lines being amply evidenced by the fact, that iu 1853 the Australian imports from England came to £14,506,532, while the China imports amounted only to £1,787,675. Hence it may be said to be proved to demonstration, that whatever may have bee...

Jjftiscettaittous. The Infant Pkesce. — As several ab surdly exaggerated statements have been made by your contemporaries relative to the remuneration made by the Emperor to the medical attendants of the Empress, I may tell vou that the chief accoucheur. II. Paul Dubois, has received 30,000 francs (£1,200); Dr Conneau, 8,000 francs; and the assistants 6,000 francs each. A guard of honour has been mounted at the Prince's cradle. The officer on duty is to receive orders from no one but the infant's gouver nante, the widow of Admiral Bruat. — Cor- respondent of the Morning Advertiser. Walter Savage Landor has addressed to the Times a plea for M. Kossuth. He states that the illustrious exile is in strait ened circumstances, and, without having consulted him on the subject, proposes a public subscription on his behalf, trusting that ' the most eloquent of statesmen since Demosthenes will not refuse that public tri bute which another of much celebrity ac cepted.' The Times answers this ap...

To the Editor of the Inquirer and Commerci-al News. SIR, — That your readers may not be misinformed, I beg to assure you, as one who has kept aloof from politics, that no such question has been asked of the clergy as your last impression seemed to imply. They liave not been consulted in any way officially, and if they were, I do not think they would shrink from giving their opinion from fear of offending the Executive or the opposition. Neither do the clergy share the depreciating opinion indulged in by a por tion of the press, with respect to one of the most es teemed and useful of their brethren. 1 am, Sir, Your obedient Servant, A CLERGYMAN. [We cannot discover the object of this letter. Docs our correspondent mean to assert that none of the clergy were requested to state their opinion with reference to the .Publican's Bill? If so, he is in er ror — whether they were consulted by a high author ity or his agents ' officially' or not, we neiiher know nor care, it is likewise a matt...

To the Editor oftJie Inquirer and Commercial News. SIB, — It is really laughable to observe the way by which the price of sheep-shearing is fixed in the pastoral districts. A gang of shearers undertake to shear a flock of sheep, bnt first they say, ' What do you give per score?' ' Why, I will give you what others are giving.' And so the shearers commence; and, having done, they leave and pass on to the next flock-master, who, like his neighbour, tells tuem he will give what others do, and they set to work. Having done the flock or flocks, they pass on, until the time arrives for Davment according to agreement. ' Well, what is the price to be?' ' Why, Mr Hop kins gave us so much per score.' 'Oh, well, I suppose I must give the same;' and the price is fixed. Now, perhaps, a Mr Hopkins, from some ur gent cause, was obliged to have his sheep shorn in haste, or in some manner which induced him to offer and give a little more per score than would have been necessary under ordinary circums...

The Inquirer & Commercial News. Quid verum atque decens, curo et rogo, et amnis in hoc sum WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 3, 1856. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 3 September 1856

0fuj Jfitquupq & (^mnmfttat |]feu?s. Quid vertim atque deceits, euro et rogo, et omnis in hoc sum WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 3, 1856. Over taxation defeats the object for which it was designed, and either induces a more limited consumption of the articles taxed or encourages illicit trading. A York corres pondent calls attention to the extra duty leviable upon unmanufactured tobacco, which he asserts has been instrumental in directing attention to other and cheaper methods of cure for diseased flocks than those hitherto employed. So far the extra duty, if it has had that effect, has done good, for if a cure equally effectual and far cheaper than tobac co has been discovered, the Colonists are gainers by the change. But the tax was imposed for the purpose of deriving an ad ditional revenue, and this will not, of course, be effected by reducing the consumption of unmanufactured tobacco. As regards the manufactured article, we do not anticipate there will be any diminu tion in consum...

EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 3 September 1856

EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE. The following extracts are from the Home News 6 March: — It may be gathered from a conversation which took place a few nights ago in the House of Lords, that it is not improbable, at no very distant day, transportation will revived. The ticket-of-leave system, tried as an experiment, has failed. It has doubled the rates m some counties, and rendered it necessary to increase the con stabulary force. It appears, however, that M this system cannot now be repealed without m an Act of Parliament, and Government jfl have declared that it is not their intention ^^M to bring in any such act. But the evil is ^^^H becoming so enormous and so pressing that ^^^H some alteration must inevitably be resorted ^^^H to, and a return to transportation seems to ^^^H present the only available remedy. It is, ^^^| of course, unnecessary to say that the colo- ^^^| nies already relieved of convicts cannot be ^^| again oppressed by them; but a hope is en- ^^ tertained that 'new Coloni...

MALTA. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 3 September 1856

MALTA. During the past week our Island has been the scene of collisions between the Maltese po lice, and Italian Legion. An ill-feeling, it seems, had been engendered among the natives against the Legion arising from religious prejudices, and disputes between the soldiers and the lower order of the people often end ing in blows were not unfrequent, and the Police interfering for the maintenance of good order, brought down it seems the Italians upon them. This was particularly apparent in the case of two soldiers who struck a priest, and who were brought to trial and imprisoned, a circumstance the Italians seem never to have forgotten and one evening in the public streets, a large party of them having collected for the pur pose drew bayonets and killed the Inspector of police who had been most active in bringing the former delinquents to justice. On the following day the people attacked three or four of the Italian officers, who had drawn their swords in defence of one of their men w...

SIR, — Your account of the Total Abstinence Festival will doubtless have been read with inte rest by many ; and, to those who remember that the great object of the Society is the moral improvement of our race, it will have been gra tifying to see what eclat was given to the meet ing by the attendance of the most distinguished persons in the colony, the eloquence of the speech es which were delivered, and the taste and skill of the musical performances, &c. Temperance and Total Abstinence Societies may, I believe, claim the honour of having proved to thousands, first, that alcohol is poison ; and secondly, that the specific for intemperance in *' alcoholic beverages' is nothing else than absti jfeuence. And I am persuaded that, would the ^friends of such societies confine their efforts chiefly to the promulgation of those two important truths, they might achieve an immensity of good, and might enjoy the hearty co-operation...

The Review. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 3 September 1856

The Review. (From the Times. April 25.') A review is, of course, supposed to present a 'dim image of war' fcr the benefit of those who hare not seen the stern reality. If judged by this standard, the proceedings of Wednesday may be considered as having represented with much success the warfare of which they were intended to celebrate the close. It was some trhat unfortunate that the British public, a little disposed to be captious and sarcastic on Go vernment arrangements, should have been reminded so forcibly of more serious failures by the mistakes, delays, and inconveniences which marked this day of pleasure. We doubt whether the majority of the fatigued sightseers who straggled back to their homes in London when the light of yesterday was dawning did not make angry comparisons between the Crimean bunglings and Baltic shortcomings of the past war, and the perverse want of order which marred the enjoyment of the great national liolyday. Transport and Commissariat failed in the Cri...

The late John Sadlier. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 3 September 1856

The late John Sadlier. When the potatoe blight fell upon Ireland some few years back, and ruined the potatoe aristocracy of that country almost to a man, John sadlier saw at once that his time was come; and he was the means of organising an association in Englend for the parpose of purchasing properties sold in the Incum- bered Estates Court, at from 7 to 12 years' purchase, with the view of re-selling them, at from 18 to 20 years' purchase. One of the gravest charges against him, in connec- tion with this association, is that be appro- priated its funds to his own private purposes and gave the members fictitious title-deeds to property which, in some cases, had no existence, for their money. It is also stated that he forged the conveyances of the In- cumbered Estates Court to an extent at   present unknown; and that the seals of the   court were transferred from the conveyances of trivial purchases effected for that especial object. His election for Carlow...

The police have heard that several stores and private houses have been lately threatened by a visit from some of the vagabond portion of die population, and the owners have consequently been on the alert. Those members of the family of the Editor of this Journal who were at home on Sunday- evening received a caution from the police that some suspicious-looking men were lurking about the premises, but most likely if they designed mischief they thought better of it, for nothing occurred to disturb the inmates of the house during that night. Mb Thomas of Fremantle was summoned to appear before the Magistrates of that town on a charge of smuggling clothing, but the accused having satis fied the bench that the articles seized were his own private stock of wearing apparel, and that rn. a pa...

As the water on the bar would not then admit of the passage of the steamer fcr some time, Mr Parkes went up to Bang kok in the small steam-yacht of the 1st King, which was sent down to receive him. lie met with a very friendly welcome from those Ministers with whom the treaty had been negotiated, as also from both their Majesties, the 1st and 2nd Kings, who ex pressed the greatest satisfaction at hearing that Mr Parkcs was the bearer of auto graph letters and presents to them from Her Britannic Majesty, and evinced no distrust or displeasure on learning of the loss sustained by the latter on the occasion of their transhipment at fSingapere; the 1st King was also particularly gratified at findi...

English and American Advertising. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 10 September 1856

English and American Advertising. Iu the office of the London Times there is a sort of map which gives a graphic re presentation of the fluctuations in the cir culation of that journal. It is like tbe sectional profiles of our railroada and canals — an increased circulation being indicated by a rise in the surface line, while a falling offin the circulation is represented by a de pression. Duriug the year 1845 the circu lation of the Times averaged only 28,000, and it began the year 1848 with an edition of no more than 29,000. The excitement consequent on the revolutiou of February raised it at once to 43,000. It fell, however, witn the fail of liberty, and averaged but 36,000 during 1852. The long suspense preceeding the present war gradually raised is until the war broke out; since which time the edition has fluctuated between 58,000 and 60,000 copies, affording an in come from the sale of papers alone of about 28,000 dollars per week.
