United States. Successful Culture of the Japanese Potato-plant in New York. — A few months ago we called atten tion to the fact that Mr D. BolL, the well-known flo rist, corner of 50th Street, and Broadway, had plant ed some of the roots of the Dioscarea Japonica, or Dioscorea batatas, a. substitute for the potato, in his garden. He first planted them in May, we believe, in pots in his hothouse. They grew rapidly, and, as soon as warm weather set in, he transferred them to liis garden in the open air. Here they flourished and spread during the summer, and gave indications that the florist wonld reap a harvest. Mr Boll had between twenty and thirty roots in, the ground. During the first week in October ho concluded his Dioscarcos were quite large enough, and so he dug them up. To his great delight, he found tljat some of them were two feet long, and all had grown finely. In fact, he was satisfied that ho had been amply repaid for his trouble and expense in importing the roots from Fr...

National Education. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 10 September 1856
National Education. In accordance with a notice previously given, Lord John Russell brought a series of resolutions on National ' Education before the House of Commons on the 6th of March, moving the first in point of form. He made a speech of considerable length, com prehensiveness, and great gravity; but in the main it consisted of a running commen tary on the resolutions embodying his plan; each section of his speech, after the intro duction, leading from one resolution to another, and being an exposition of the rea sons that led up to it. Remarking on the difficulties of the question, and the fate that had befallen his predecessors, who had em barked on a sea noted for its dangerous shoals and rocks, and covered with wrecks, he drew a picture of the unsatisfactory con dition of education, founded on the statistics of Mr Horace Mann, and%ie reports of the School Inspectors. From Mr Mann's figures he arrived at the conclusion that only 500, 000, children between the ages of five a...

The War and its Incidents. Correspondence from ike Crimea. The Daily News correspondent, in his diarj-, com mencing with the 1st March, states that the demoli tion of the Karabelnaia was continued on that day, the explosions being confined chiefly to the spacious vaults or magazines beneath one of the wings, and to a few bloc-s of masonry which it was necessary to throw down. ' Nothing now remains of this magnificent pile of buildings but the outer walls, and some portions of the partition walls, which serve as buttresses to sup port, them. * * * All the detached buildings within the area, used as stores, offices, cooking places, &c, which w.-re very extensive and numerous', are also now destroyed.' The warehouses and extensive wharves of the Knrabelnuia Creek remain undisturbed, and the foundations of the new admiralty building have yet to be destroyed, as well as the masonry facing the lofty terrace above. On the 3rd March the correspondent writes. — 'It was last night ann...

On Monday night, after the ^^ first part of Lord Campbell's summing up, he said to his brother, i?ho was much af fected : ' Don't take ton, George ; there is a God above as who will stand between me and harm. I am innocent of the crime Im puted to me. Let ttiafc be a consolation to you, my mother, and my boy. Apt upon, my word ; I have never deceived you yet ; and, however guilty I may have been in other things, to destroy life lias never en tered my head.' He then tapped his bro ther on the shoulder, and went on — 'May. you sleep as sound asj I do. , I have had a good tea, with half a pound of steak. May you have as good a night's rest as I shall. Tell my mother that New ton and Mills are fake, and that I fear the grave as little as my bed.*' With that he shook hands with both. He then entered into a desultory conversation, -inquiring how his boy was, saying, ' Tell W...

$H Jnqiui:fr & Commci'dat ^aus. Quidverum atque decens, euro et rogo, et omnis in hoc sum WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 10, 1856. EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE To the 14th June. By the arrival of tbe Runnymede, after an unnsuallj* short passage of* 84 days we are placed in possession of European intelligence to the 14fch June. The date of the Post office letter-bill, is 3rd June, but the Run nymede having to put back obtained papers of a later date, viz., to 14th June. Our files extend to 31st May. We give a sum' mary of the principal items of news, and for that purpose appropriate the space generally occupied by leading matter. The most prominent topic is our relations with the United States. As had been ex pected, the demand of the Americans for the recall of Mr Crampton was not entertained, and he was dismissed by* the Government of that country. This, though a grave oc currence, does not necessarily imply a state of war, and as public feeling in both coun tries is against such a war, whi...
Egypt. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 10 September 1856
A letter from Alexandria of the 4tb3 in the Con stitiilionnel, says: — ' I have to announce two tilings altogether new . and extraordinary in oriental manners. The first is an application of the popular suffrage in the admi nistration of justice ia Egypt; and the second, *« subscription for the Suez Canal, hailed with confi dence by the Turks themselves. The Viceroy, who endeavours by every means in bis power to imrodnce civilization into his states, is desirous of reforming the system of the administration of justice, and, if possible, of rendering it more independent and more enlightened. The first obstacle h& met with in this laudable design was die position cfthe cadis or civil judges of the country. They are appointed by the Porte, and it is at Constantinople that they pur chase their posts. Mohammed Sai4 has reimbursed to them the original cost of their places, and has obtained the right of direct appointment. Not wish ing, however, to take on himself all the responsib...

[ADVERTLSEilENT.]— Holloway's Pills astonishing efficacious in Liver and Stomach. Com plaints. — Mr Anthony Aidridge, of Brisbane, Moreton Hay, suffered from a child with a slug gish state of the liver, the bowels were always in a very bad state, and he was afflicted with general ill health, he tried a variety of medicines which were recommended Liin by friends and the faculty, but notwithstanding this, his malady sadly in creased, and ultimately he became in such a state that he was unable to attend to any active pursuits. At last, he commenced using Holloway's celebra ted Pills, which soon performed their part upon this suffering being, and after he had taken this inestimable medicine for eiglit weeks, he was thoroughly restored to health.

Ijtisccttrnwous. When the«ill-fated Ben Sherrod was in flames on the Mississippi river, and the lady passengers who had thrown themselves into the water were drowning around the boat, the wife of Captain Castleman jumped into the river, with her infant in her arms, aud swam ashore, a distance of half-a-niile, being the only woman saved out of 16. She had learnt to swim when a girl. Westminister Wit. — In a carriage case before the Queen's Bench, Mr Hawkjns had frequently to advert to that description of vehicle called a ' Brougham,' which he pronounced in proper dissyllable form. Lord Campbell suggested that the word was as frequently contracted to ** broom,' which was jtist as well known, and the use of which would save a syllable. Hencefor ward Mr Hawkins called it ' broom.' Presently the argument turned upon omni buses, and Lord Campbell frequently used the word ' omnibus,' to which he gave its due length. ' I beg your lordship's pardon,' retorted Mr Hawkins, 'but if your lordshi...
Wreck of the Brig Gazelle., and Horrible Massacre of all on Board [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 10 September 1856
Wreck of the Brig Gazelle, and Horrible Massacre of all on Board On the 31st of last August, the brig Ga- zelle, Captain W. T. Parkin, sailed from Sydney bound to Woodlark Island, having on board a quantity of stores for the mis- sionary station there, and as passenger the Rev. Mr Murraconi, an Italian clergyman, whose intention it was to assist in the objects of the mission at that island. Considerable anxiety having been manifested as to the safety of the brig and those on board, and several letters having appeared referring to the subject in this journal, in April last the schooner Favourite was chartered for the purpose of going in search of the missing vessel. The Favourite returned to Sydney yesterday, having discovered that the Ga- zelle was a total wreck on Woodlark Island, and that every soul on board had been murdered by the natives. It will be seen by the sequel that the intelligence gleaned from some of the boys belonging to the island is in several cases contradictory, ...

GENERAL NEWS Mr H. Grinnell has received a letter from Lady Franklin, in which she expresses a desire that Dr. Kane should visit England for the purpose of taking charge of another Arctic expedition.

She proposes to fit out a propeller at her own expense, and give the command to the doctor. vThe Bishop op Bangob. — The Bishop of Bangor is now. at war with- the Rev. Bulkelej Jones, warden of.

The rev. gentlemen's letters are couched in. the most respectful tone, but the Bishop charges him with having ' been seduced into this act of insubordination by puerile ignorance and vanity $ but ignorance and vanity are no excuse for criminal mis behaviour' He also charges him with ' presumption and folly' jnliaving solicited ; the co-operation of the Ar...
EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE Debate on the Peace. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 17 September 1856
EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE Debate- on the Peace. On Monday, May 5, the Lords assented to an ad dress to the Queen, declaring the peace to have fully accomplished all the purposes for. which the war was undertaken. Lord Ellesmere moved the address, and Lord Glenelg seconded it, in speeches which were as plausible as a bad untruthful case admitted. Lord Jfaimesbury criticised the treaty with some severity, and pointed out the mischievous consequences of die fall of Kars. As be justly re marked, although the do*&s at Sebastopol were not to be restored, ' there was nothing in tbe treaty to prevent the northern forts of Sebastopol from exer cising their strength, or to prevent the Russians from again fortifying Malakboff and the hills. Therefore they would still have an immense fortress remaining as a standing menace, supplied with stores and guns, on the shores of the Black Sea, and facing the Turkish empire.' In addition to this, he observed that we gave back to Russia ' Balaklava, ...

To the Editor of the Inquirer and Commercial News. SIR,— Your contemporary, in his number of the 15th ult., publishes a letter signed G. P. PownalL which letter .refers to a speech made by Governor Kennedy at the Total Abstinence Meeting, on the evening of the 6th August. The rev. gentleman states that the Committee mentioned in their report the words ' rural dis tricts,' but that His Excellency did not. I reside ill one of the rural districts, and I was present and heard the Governor's speech on the evening of the 6th August, and I assert most positively — not to the best of my belief — (and I can find fifty others who were present to support me)' that the words ' rural districts' were used by His Excel lency, and he immediately afterwards' cited the cases of the dead shepherds at Toodyay to prove his statement was correct. It perhaps will be as well for me to state the exact words used by His Excellency. He first spoke of the quantity o£ spirits and. fermented liquors used in the ...
