AMERICAN FILIBUSTERING [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 24 September 1856
AMERICAN FILIBUSTERING ' About six months ago a band of adventurers from the United States, under the command of a freebooter named Walker, invaded the Bepublic of Nicaragua, with no claim or pretext that we are aware oC, merely relying on die power of die sword and die superiority of might to right. Success crowned their efforts; they overthrew the existing Government, by what acts of blood and treachery it is not now necessary to state, and installed them selves, for a tune at least, in the positioa of sove reigns of Nicaragua. But die neighbouring States of Costa Rica and Guatemala became alarmed, and commenced an attack upon the American invaders, die success in which, according to the last accounts, had declared in their favour and against tbe piratical occupiers of tbe country. Walker and his followers have appealed to force, and force seems on die point of deciding against them. The Clayton- Bui wer treaty binds die American and English Government alike not to occupy any port...
VALPARAISO. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 24 September 1856
VALPARAISO. We have been favoured, says the Melbourne ' Argus,' with the sight of additional commercial advices from the West Coast of America, all of which confirm tbe accounts of the scarcity of wheat at Chilian ports in ApriL The following extracts, however, give promise of shipments at a later period of the year : — Valparaiso, April 8, 1856. ** During March we had ten days of rain — a most unusual thing in Chili — and large parcels of outlying wheat have been destroyed. 4 to 5 dol lars per 155 lbs. are asked for sound wheat, and millers only buy for immediate wants; and in the absence of stocks of flour is worth 12 dollars 50c. cash per ton quintals, and some weeks may pass without any material decline. We think that later on, say August forward, our stocks should admit of liberal exports at about 9 to 10 dollars, say per two quintals.'
London Wool Report. May 15, 1856. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 24 September 1856
London Wool Eeport May 15, 1856. The first sale of tbe new clip commenced on die 8th of May, and the quantity announced for sale was 52,000 bales, of which, up to this date, 15,000 bales have oaseed die hammer. 'The anticipations of those who were looking for higher prices prior to the sale have been fully real ized. The exhaustion of stocks both here and abroad brought together a large attendance of buyers, bow home and foreign, and an advance was obtained on die average rates of February of full 2d- per lb on all descriptions. The upward tendency still continues, and higher prices are being paid than at die first sale. Our home manufacturers and dealers (the latter more particularly) have competed stoutly for all sorts— those most required for continental purposes have found steady opponents in our Huddersfield buyers; and, judging from their operations in scour ed and .fintHdass combing and clothing sorts of fright plump character, these descriptions will main tain the high rates...

Jparfots. south Australia. ADELAIDE MERCANTILE BEPOBT. Fridar evenine. Anerust 22. 1856. Owing to the absence of any late intelligence from die neighbouring colonies during the week, the trans actions in flour were limited, though the tone pf die market was very firm. Yesterday and today, since receipt of the English and colonial news per White Swan, a very brisk business has been doneTand an adyance of folly £1 per ton established. The late rains have prevented wheat coming in in qnantijy since last Saturday; but as fee weather im proves it is expected to come Eteaduy forward. The improvement in the price of flour has occasioned a corresponding action in wheat, and good muling samples may be qnotedat 9s 6d per busheL Barley and oats remain much the same.

EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 24 September 1856
EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE The Foreign News brought by the u Loch invar' is not so late as our own, the dates ?from England being 4th June. We insert such items as may not have been previously ^published: — Austria and Sardinia. The Post's Paris correspondent writes that it is by .no means impossible that diplomatic relations will ere long cease between Austria an ! Sardinia. Count Buol has directed a circular despatch to all the representatives of Austria at foreign courts, in -which he endeavours to refute the memorandum of Oount Cavour, and describes Sardinia as the focus of *the revolutionary disturbances that agitate Italy. The letter of the Count is as follows : — ** Like the Sardinian Plenipotentiaries, Count Buol «tarts from the principle that reforms in Italy arc much -needed, but as to the means of those reforms ?comes to a conclusion diametrically opposed to Sardii iin policy. While the memorandum of the 16th of April seeks the causes of the state of affairs in Italy in the me...

TASMANIA. August 16, 1856. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 24 September 1856
TASMANIA. Accost 16, 1856. Flour is still nominally quoted at £24 per ton, but it is difficult to say how much under that amount the article can be bought in quantity. Probably we shall receive advices by the^ Black Swan ' to day, which will give merchants and millers some thing definite to base their future transactions npon, for at present all their information is uncertain, and the most sanguine private advices from Mel bourne recommend extreme caution in this market. Wheat was sold yesterdsy at from 8s 6d to 9s 3d, according to quality. One of the millers has ceased purchasing wheat, but .declines to sell flonr under £25 per (on. Laoncbston, 16th Angust. — Th,e additonal in formation brought to band by the ' Black Swan ' has had the effect of making the highest prices of flour quoted hi our last issue firmer. Holders are less disposed to sell, and unless considerable quantities of breadstuff's arrive from Chili to reduce the price at Sydney, there is no doubt but floor will adva...

The administration of India combines difficulties which, formidable even when separate, become appalling by their combi nation, exhibiting the fusion of all discordant elements into a bard and unmalleable whole. A population constituted of two race3, one of which was the victorious, the other the vanquished race, each retaining its own re ligion and the habits which that religion has impressed upon it — each to the peculia rities of religion adding the peculiarities of blood, and both, moreover, impressed with, those distinct characteristics which a com mon origin has transmitted to the whole Oriental family— this population, which numbers 110 millions of human beings, which is scattered over an area equal to three great European kingdoms, which for 2000 years has been exhausting the ex perience cf Castern despotism, which has never known or tilt lately heard of a stand ard of public morality or public opinion, whicli has grown up generation after g...

StSTAs a general rule, we wish it to be understood that we do not identify ourselves with the opinions or expressions of our correspondents. To the Editor of the ' Inquirer and Commercial News.' SIR, — The present position and prospects of the Colony are so alarmingly gloomy that I do not hesitate to address myself to you as the exponent of public opinion, and call attention to a few facts on the subject, without a due consideration of which little good can be effected. The great point I would wish to be made more explicitly understood, in connection with all our public affairs, is this — The sole and undivided responsibilitt of the Goveenob for the time being for whatever situation the colony may be placed in. Without a fall and complete system of .representative Government and responsible ministers, answerable for their deeds to the de puties of the public, we must place that responsibi lity in none else than the Governor ; and no attempt, however adroitly made, can place it on an...

It is npon the natural productions of a coun try that we must depend for permanent prosperity, and until the Colony can be placed in a position to support itself without foreign aid we cannot be considered in a satisfactory position. Western Australia at present is, to a great extent, supported by the Imperial Government, the expenditure on account of convicts being our principal source of revenue. The sudden withdrawal of that expenditure, or a portion of it, would create great financial embarrassment, and we should in vain look to the Colony itself to supply this deficiency. It was fondly hoped that the advent of convicts would have enabled the colonists rapidly to bring into the market, and con vert into a source of wealth, the products of the Colony, whether indigenous or artifi cially created; and to a certain extent this has been done, eno...
