Review. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 29 October 1856

' %emw. The book which for the last fortnight has occupied the largest amount of curiosity, is tbe 'Table Talk of the iate Samuel Rogers.' It is compiled from the notes of the Rev. Alexander Dyce (who does not, however, give his name to the public), and exhibits in tbe compiler the same sort of desultory, but retentive faculty, for which the hero of these ana was himself chiefly remarkable. The Rev. Alexander Dyce is known to the readers of the old drama by his scrupulous editions of Middleton, Beaumont and Flet cher, Greene, and others, all of them dis tinguished by minute accuracy in the col lection of small items of information, and the verification of doubtful dates. These qualities afford some guarantee for the fidelity of his memorabilia of Rogers ; yet we are not on that account to accept tue book as being perfectly trustworthy in itself. Rogers was an old man when many of these anecdotes were related by htm; and neither was his memory to be implicitly depended upon, in refer...

Negro Know-nothings [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 29 October 1856

Negro Knownothings {From the Nem-York Weekly Tribune,) A very curious outbreak of KnowNo thing principles, carried to rather violent extremes, has recently taken place in the colony of British Guiana, on the northern coast 'of South America. In that colony, as well as in Jamaica and Trinidad, great efforts were made and a larae exnense. was incurred, shortly after the emancipation of the negroes, in attempts to obtain addi tional supplies of labour by emigrants from abroad. Among other places, the authori ties of British Guiana turned their attention to Madeira, which was greatly over-peopled and whence in the course of several years a very considerable number of emigrants was brought to the colony, their passages being paid out of the colony chest, which was principally supplied by import duties levied on the articles of food and clothing, largely imported subsequent to emancipation for the use of the labouring population. The object in the importation of the Portuguese was to empl...

News from Russia— By an Ameri can Consul.

faomstiimitence. SelfMs a general ride, tee wish it to be understood that we do not identify ourselves with the opinions or expressions qf our correspondents. To the Editor of the Inquirer and Coai?ncrcial News. SIR,— I am rery glad to see that the purpose for which my last two letters were written — viz., to draw public attention to the necessity of a revision of our land regulations, and a reduction in the price of land— has in a measure been successful. His Ex cellency Governor Kennedy has acknowledged the necessity of such a proceeding, and stated his wil lingness to move in the matter; but he also says — and on mature consideration I think he says justly — that he requires, in suggesting any alteration, 'backing up' by the colonists. Such I have no doubt, the more the question is agitated, he will re ceive, and that the day likewise is not far distant when Western Australia will be relieved from the greatest cause of her constant depression — a too high price for her waste land...

In the article to which I allude the following remarks are paraded: ' Mr F. Scott, by whom die whole question of ticket-of-lcave convicts was recently opened in the House of Commons, says that as Australia is as large as Europe, convicts sent to Swan River wonld find it impossible to get to die other provinces. But if Mr Scott had communicated on die subject with . ?. the other provinces, he would have ascertained thai, so far from die convict migration referred to being impossible, considerable numbers of Swan Biver ticket-of-leavc holders are continually making their way to South Australia and Victoria; and that it i- not, as he thinks, as ...

To the Editor of the Inquirer and SIR, — I am induced, by the good-will I bear and the esteem I feel for that ill-used and per secuted portion of our community called Pub licans, to scribble a few lines on their behalf. Poor fellows ! it is a shame that our eccentrio Governor should attempt to place any impedi ments in the way of their rascalitv. I see by a late number of yonr journal that one of the persecuted complain* he is not allowed to sell on credit. Why should he wish to. seli on credit? except that he may have ihe chance of charging for two glasses where he only supplies one. He also complains that if he purchases tiny* thing he is obliged to pay for it in cash, instead of inducing the seller to drink, and swindling him , out of his money, as most of the fraternity do. I do not wonder the ill-treated, fellows are annoy- .. ed at being mulcted of a great portion of their creditably-earned gains.

The blacksmith's arm becomes un usually muscular; the lungs of mountaineers, who, breathing thinner air, require more of it to sastain health than is required by people in the plain, become unusually large. The object of exercise is to take care that every part of the frame should have its proper share of work to do, a due allowance for all members of the body, and — not by any means of less moment — ra due allowance tor die brain. Proper exercise is a free use, not of the limbs only, but of every means of activity placed under the government of the will. In exercise of the brain it is requi site for perfect mental health, that all powers of the mind should be brought into play. For perfect bodily health it is as ab-: solutely necessary that every member should be exercised, and it is...

Four prizes were awarded for wine, one for olive oil, four for dried fruits, seventeen for vegetables, and sixteen for flowers. Mrs Bayly, Mrs Luke Leake, and Mrs Hoops kindly ad judged the prizes for flowers, while the remain ing premiums were fixed by Sir Cooke of North am and Mr Harding of Ftemantle.
