The Court was disposed ws on ordinary occasions, save that the round table had been replaced by rows of benches, covered with red cloth, and sprinkled with pads of blotting-paper and new pens. Behind these benches barristers who had come as a matter of cariosity were lounging, some gowned, and others in ordi nary dress. The morning papers were, as usual, in request. The only persons yet at ?work were the reporters, in their box at the back of the court. They were already filling their long note-books with introduc tory sketches, to be sent in time for the evening papers. The cnly official on the bench was one of the Under-Sberifls, dress ed in black, with a white frill and kerchief, and attracting one's attention conti...

VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 1 October 1856

VICTORIA. Owing to the rush to the New South Wales gold fielJs, steamers now ply daily between Melbourne and Sydney. The immigration returns for July show a further retrogade movement. A reaction has set in with respect to tbe neighbouring colonies, and the de partures now exceed the arrivals by about two to one. The case ot JScw boutu wales is stui more against us; .and the arrivals from Britain and other distant ports do not balance the account. The Age says: — ' Mr Tolmer, lately Superintend ent of the South Australian Police, and, prior to that, Commissioner, purposes, we understand, com ing to Melbourne, in consequence of an invitation from the Victorian Government, in order to give a fair trial to a plan of his for the manufacture of pa per from a species of native plant.' A new census will be taken in this colony at the end of the year. Extensive preparations are said to be in progress to render die agricultural statistics complete, and to report on the settlement ofehe co lo...

BOMBAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 1 October 1856

BOMBAY Oar news is to the 28th April. The fol lowing items are selected from the overland summary prepared by the Telegraph and Courier: — All is at present quiet in the Persian Gulf. The troubles, whatever they may be, are ret bid in tbe womb of time, and it were presumptuous in us to say in what shape, or from what quarter they may come. The preparations for war which we alluded to ' are not relaxed, and every one seems to be watching for the outbreak of the storm. There is a report that the ex-King of Oude intends returning to Lucknow, and spending the remainder of his days among dancing girls in the palace of his fathers, leaving the questions of his wrongs to agi tators in England, who will be at full liberty to make political capital of hie treatment, and gain as much as they can from the simplicity or fears of the Directory, but nothing from him. It is also reported that Government intends allowing him, indivi dually, six: lakhs of rupees a year, and the free use of £2,300,00...

To the Editor of the Inquirer and Commercial News. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 1 October 1856

To the Editor of the Inquirer and Commercial News. SIR, — Taking the first paragraph of your able leader of last week for my text, and fully agreeing with the principle you lay down, ' that the perma nent prosperity of a country depends upon its na tural productions,' I, in a measure, differ from you as to the most effectual means of placing our colony on what you term correctly ' a satisfactory condi tion.' You adduced, as necessary adjuncts* to such a position, merely the provision of good roads and easier means of transport for* our productions from the interior to the coast, and between the principal seats of industry in the Colony. 2?ow, though not for a moment denying the absolute necessity of such advantages being present to produce prosperity, I am fully convinced that we shall never possess them until the funds of the Colony are in a more flourish ing condition, and that such good time will never have arrived until we have a great alteration in the management, of the waste ...

Dort Cregory. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 1 October 1856

8ort {grenera. From this district we learn there is 49| tons lead ready for shipment, and enough lead ore grassed to produce a further supply of 25 tons. The ore is spoken of as excellent in quality. The furnaces are in splendid order, and the contractors speak favorably of tie anticipated result -of their operations. In consequence oF tie heavy rains, smelting was discontinued for upwards of a month, for although heaps of ore were Sat the fur nace, and an abundance of wood was at hand, yet it could not.be carted, in consequence of tie soft nature of the soil. The Murchison rtv*, which at the commencement of the rainy season rose ten feet or more, has continued a running stream ever since, but iras gradually dwindled in size, and it is hoped that the waters wfll abate sufficiently to admit of Hie resumption of mining operations within a month. The whaling party had secured 33 tans of oil, , and 1 of bone, and were in chase of whales when th** Perseverance' left. There had heen some ...

Talk of 'two single gentlemen rolled into one!' why one Governor, Mr Barlee says, is some ten tTinnsand men rolled into one. if be is in nerson en abled to arrive at a sound Public opinion. I al ways imagined that it took a good many people to make up a public, but it appear that in pnblic opi nion, if there are a good many people, they have only one Ijead, and that is the ' Head of the Execu tive.' What a study for a phrenologist must that Head be! There must be a great many strange bumps in it. At all events, we may feel sure the organ of acquisitiveness will be found well de veloped, if we may judge from the way in which the ' Head' stuck on the taxes in Council (by all accounts the Colonial ...

The Evil Spirit and the Good Bishop. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 1 October 1856

The Evil Spirit and the Good Bishop. (From the Examiner, April 12) A curious episcopal discovery has been made in the diocese of Bangor. The son of the devil holds a perpetual curacy ef £180 a year. He has no diabolic patri mony, no private fortune, and pays £80 a year to a curate in order to give two ser vices every Sunday in two churches at some distance from each other. He has no glebe house. By his own exertions he has- obtained the means of repairing Pen man, near Beaumaris, one of the most an cient churches in Wales. He goes by the name of Ellis. This evil spirit has be guiled the ear of Mr W. O. Stanley, the member of Parliament, has poisoned his ear, and ajso the ears of several other per sons. He goes about exactly like his fa ther, with a lie in his mouth, and has the manner of a serpent. The Bishop of Ban gor, as in duty bound, has found out this evil spirit and his lineage, and has put such plain marks upon him that there can be no mistake about the matter. The holy man ...

The ameri[?] Imbreglio. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 1 October 1856

Tbe AmflpeaD Lobcoriio, rtrom the Time*. June 3rd,} The ;yet more recent intelligence which we h«ge received from the United States leaves as little, reason to doubt that die Go vernment of General Pierce will not stop short in the career on which it has embark ed, bat will follow up the reception of the Minister of General Walker by the dismis sal of the Minister of Queen Victoria. It is vain any longer to delude ourselves with the hope that wiser and more moderate councils will prevail with a Government which has thrown off all pretence of ad herence to the rules that regulate the inter course of nations, and feels no degradation in allying the interests of the great nation with whose destinies it is entrusted to men exercising a trade which a few years ago any sanguine speculator on human progress would have pronounced to be an anachro nism and an impossibility.

2b the Editor of the Inquirer and ? Commercial News. SIR, — In youi last week's impression I read a letter signed 'Observer,' in which he reflects on a statement of my having ploughed 107 acres in a certain tame, and deduces therefrom that the work must necessarily be badly done. HIb re marks prove him to be a very casual observer, for had he consulted me previous to writing his letter, he misrht have been informed that the land in question, instead of being once stirred three inches deep, bad a deep ploughing of five or six inches, that great part of it had a deep ploughing and fallow; and if he will do me the pleasure to examine the crops, I think he will find that they do not present that appearance which a three-inch ?scratching would lead him to expect. I quite agree with his remarks on deep and frequent ploughing, and my object in troubling you with thisletter is to inform him (and I have' no doubt but it will be a source of gratification to him to know) that there are many ot...

Quid rerum atque deems, euro et rago9 et omnis in hoc sum WEDNESDAY. OCOTBER 1, 1856. Them; can be no doubt but that the exist ing method of managing our town is bad, and that some different arrangement is re quired. At present nothing seems to be done, and little can be done without a great er amount of local taxation than the citi zens can submit to without inconvenient pressure. They already contribute largely towards the general revenue of the province, and although willing to be moderately as sessed, cannot, if they would, pay annually large sums even for a work they have so much at heart — the improvement of their town. As with Perth, so with other towns, where the existing system has been found impracticable. The neighbouring Colonies have experi enced equal difficulty, and it was only by adopting the system of grants in aid from the general revenue, that Ihe towns so far progressed as to become adapted to the com fort, the convenience, and the health of their inhabitants.

COLONIAL NEWS. New South Wales. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 1 October 1856

-30L0MAL SEWS. Hew South Wales-. The rush to the gold-fields 'still continues, but it is difficult at present to get at the exact troth as to the richoess of the gold-fields. Neither of the jour nals have sent up special correspondents, nor has there been any official report to the Government by the Crown Land Commissioners. We have only hearsay evidence, therefore, to go upon, backed oc casionally by the sight of veritable nuggets. But amongst thr. Vijwers the belief is traininc oronnd - that the .Rocky Biver is really a rich field, and every day fqesh parties set off, though the land journey is a long one even from the nearest point to which water navigation reaches, and though on the high table land the weather is very cold at this season of the year. It is not only the population of this colony that is stirred by this new rush. The in fection has reached even tbe diggers of Victoria; who are trooping over here in considerable numbers. Every steamer from Melbourne lately has brou...
