TO THE EDITOR OF " THE INQUIRER AND COMMERCIAL NEWS" [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 8 August 1855

TO THE EDITOR OF "THE INQUIRER AND   COMMERCIAL NEWS." SIR, — As the priest who administered baptism to the Aborigines lately executed, admits their being uninstructed in the main truths of Christianity, and rests his apology on his religious tenet, consider- ing heathen adults in the same position as the children of Christian parents, — I can have nothing more to say — your columns being not the place to discuss the soundness of this view.   However, Mr. Ribaya has taught me that when- ever I read of the baptism of heathens by Roman Missionaries, I may in future understand them to have been baptized not necessarily as converts, but perhaps as — "babies." Your obedient servant Z. BARRY. Fremantle, Thursday, 2nd August.

MAURITIUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 15 August 1855

MAURITIUS. We are indebted to Captain Barker, of tbe ' Swan,' for Mauritius papers of the 26th 27th, and 29th June. There is no local nevrs of interest to our readers. The En lish Intelligence is, however, to 9th May, and we extract the same for general inform ation. It appears that the Allies have been again unsuccessful in their attempts to subdue the Russian fire, and have, for the present, ceased bombarding the fortifications and town. A successful reconnoissance in force was made in the vicinity of Balaclava. The siege works are progressing, and ad vances made on the Russian positions, which have been carried, although with much loss of life on the part of the Allies.

ARRIVAL OF THE OVERLAND MAIL TO MAY 9. Commercial Gazette Office, Wednesday, 9 o'clock, a.m. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 15 August 1855

ARRIVAL OF THE OVERLAND MAIL TO MAY 9. Commercial Gazette Office, Wednesday, 9 o'clock, a.m. The Schooner 'Spirit' anchored this morning' early, bringing the mails of 9th May, (except that from London of that date). The allies were progressing at the Crimea, hut nothing important had been accomplished. Mr. Drouvn ae Lhuys had resigned — sugar had risen — the Bank had lowered the rate of interest — and commercial news was of a more favourable nature. A- telegraphic communication had been com pletely established from Londoii to Balaclava, and on the 4th May, Lord Panmure, Minister of War, v.-as in receipt of intelligence from the Crimea, conveying the heads of events that had taken place there on the 1st, and the same submarine telegraph, in rapid succession, continued the in formation up to the morning of the day on which it was received. It appears that the whole of the front and left attack were engaged on the night of the 1st, and that the affair terminated by the capture of eight...

Crimea. — A despatch of Prince Gortschakoff of the 22nd ult., says, that the enemy after a vi gorous bombardment of eight days, has discovered the inefficiency of his fire ; so that he had allowed it to relax considerably. The despatch terminates by describing the loss upon the 20th and 21st to have been only a third of that upon any preceding days. Letters from Odessa, in the meantime, state the general loss of the garrison to have been enormous, and that the number of wounded far ex ceeds the means ol' accommodation in the hospitals and ambulances outside the place, that the mor tality amongst the wounded amounts to 50 per cent.

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. MERCANTILE REPORT. Thursday evening, June 28, 1855. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 15 August 1855

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. MERCANTILE REPORT. Thursday evening, June 28, 1855. There is no change to report in general trade since last week, and the arrival of later dates from Eng land by the Sea Park have failed to enliven our market for European imports. Indeed it is com plained of on all hands that the demand for all cur rent commodities never was duller in any former vcar, and the inactivity is more especially felt in the sale of all articles of luxuiy. Another considerable accession to our population has been. made this week by the arrival of the emi grant ships TsjTOOUth Castle, Sea Park, aad Velo city ? the numb'sr on board approaching to 1,000 souls. Beyond these three vessels, the week has passed without any other extracolonial arrivals. Later intelligence from the neighbouring colonies was brought bv the Bosphorus on Sunday, and the Havilah on Motday last, after a few days' suspension of our usual regularity of communication. Many articles appear to be simultaneously scarce in the...

COMMERCIAL. London, Tuesday evening. May 8, 1855. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 15 August 1855

COMMERCIAL. London, Tuesday evening. Jifay 8, 1855. Ihe oihcial accounts oi .British produce and manufactures exported during the third mouth of the present year show a much less unfavourable state of trade than existed in the preceding month, I the reduction in the value being, as compared witii the same period in 1854, and after making due allowance for the new mode of making up the statements, about £870,000,[wheroas the relative de cline in the previous month exceeded two millions ; the total falling oft* having exceeded three millions in the first quarter of the year. Of this reverse a large portion occurs in the metal trade, in conse quence of the suspension of orders for Railway Iron from the United States. The exports of woollen manufactures, Silks, Linen, and Haber dashery, have also fallen oft' to a considerable ex tent ; but in the btill more important branch of Cotton goods, groat activity stilj prevails, and scarcely any abatement in export is apparent.

California. March 26th, 1855. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 15 August 1855

California. March 26th, 1855. ' The accounts received from the mining regions continue exceedingly favourable, and the work so long suspended from want of rain has commenced in earnest, and is being prosecuted with the utmost vigour on all sides. The richness of the old placers does not seem at all diminished, while new discoveries are being made every day. The hard times which have prevailed for so long a period, and which have cut off the supply of work in the cities, has driven great num bers of. persons to the interior, and the num ber of miners is probably larger now than at any period since the discovery of the gold. We look for a very largely increased produce of the precious metal within the next four months, and iteis generally admitted that a much larger portion of it than usual will be retained in the country. A large part of the money which used to lie in the bank will now seek permanent investment in the coun try, and so be productive of greatly enhanced benefit to the ...

THE ARMY BEFORE SEBASTOPOL. PARLIAMENTARY INQUIRY. {Continued.) THIRD DAY, Mahch 7. HAJO E--i EXEEA1 BEl'TINCK. He said, hi answer to the Chairman, that he was commander of the brigade of Guards in the Crimea. They landed first at Scutari, and tiien proceeded to Varna. As soon as they arrived at file latter place, the troops were attacked with sickness; and about 100 died out of 2500 men, which was the strength of their division. The sickness was to be attributed to the unhealfiuness of the climate there at that season, of the year. Every precaution was taken to keep the camp clean. In general a medical opinion is not taken as to flie healthiness of a spot tor an encampment. The diseases prevalent in the brigade were typhus and cholera. The means of transport in Bulgaria were not abundant. He doubted if the commis sariat could have moved all that was required for supplying the brigade ; he thought they could have moved the guns and ammunition. He saw the ambulance carts when they we...

VISIT of the FRENCH EMFEROR. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 15 August 1855

VISIT of the FRENCH EMFEROR. A successful ovation may mean a great deal, and it may mean nothing at alL It would be unwise to build much upon what, after all, is the voice of a multitude, pro verbially fickle. So we shall not describe what London has witnessed this week in words of the same gramy that we should give, for example, to the pacification of Eu rope. But, on the other hand, there can be no occasion for any writer to deny the fact as if it were worth denying. In plain mat ter of fact, the reception given by the peo ple of London to the Erench Empeeor and Empeess is not a mere repetition of that given to Louis Phu-ipfe. Whatever the feeling, or the pretence of feeling, or the ab sence of feeling that may be alleged, no body with the use of his eyes can dispute that the metropolis has greeted Napoleon III and his Consort with an enthusiasm bor dering on extravagance. Our fellowciti zens gathered from the suburbs, selected some point on the various routes taken by the Imperia...
