Toodyay. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 12 November 1856

The Annual meeting of our Agricultural Society on the 29th njtimo was. well attended, as well by the residents in the district as by parties from York, Perth, and. Fremantla The show of stock was ge nerally considered the best ever held in the colony, if quality is any criterion, and far superior to that of the sister society at York, excepWas regards the best pen of sheep.- Mr Drumroond's lot, from Cham pion Bay, weisflfewJeVer, but little inferior to those of Mr J. Lott;Twhbhas so long borne away the palm,m this description of stock- The show of cart mares was perhaps equal to any ever exhibited out of England. The horned cattle were also very su perior; those of Mr Mclntosh in particular expelled any we had ever before seen in the colony. The gjodges, Messrs. & Barges, S. Parker, Barker, C. Smith, J.JLott, and Sleav.Jiad a difficult task to perform, but we must admit they performed it in a manner which gave, universal satisfaction. Soon after one o'clock the Governor and ...

PROTEST of the Advocate-General against the Insolvency Ordinance of 1856. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 12 November 1856

FB0XBST of the Advocate-General against the Insolvency Ordinance of 1856. I cannot, as Advocate General, allow die Insol vency Ordinance of 1856 to be presented to the Se cretary of State for approval, and to be thereby constituted a law, without entering my solemn,, deliberate, and most earnest .kiotest against it, which I do, as the result of many years' professional study and practice in England, and nearly three years' experience of the state ofiseciety in Western Australia. My radical objection to this Bill is, it makes some of the most stringent provisionlrjjof the English Bankruptcy law applicable to all classes universally, instead of the few for whom they were destined. The English Insolvency Law in dndes all non -traders, - and some commercial men. The English Bankruptcy Law would never have passed were it not confined to a consenting class, inter se. Its stringency unfits it for universal application. By Imperial law five people out of seven cannot be made bankrupts at al...

EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE To 26th August. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 12 November 1856

EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE To 26th August. We are indebted to Mr E. E. Homfray for a, Home Nercs of 26th August, which he re ceived per Shanghai, that vessel having obtained it at the Mauritius, where she put in to repair, damages incurred during a gale off the Cape of Good Hope. It is a Home Nercs for India, and does not contain any Australian shipping in telligence, nor does it give any Colonial news. The summary of European News we now give, bat it is somewhat incom plete, owing to the absence of the July files:— It appeals that Russia either refused or hesitated to deliver to the Turks the Isle of Serpents and Kars, and with respect to the former place, Admiral Stew art was sent into the Black Sea to protect Turkish interests, .but. previous to his arrival the cession bad been made. Kars had also been frnrendcred, and the Turks had placed in command of the forces occupy ing tlie surrendered city, a general who was dismis sed by General Williams for drunkenness and de bauchery.

The Peculiarities of Palmer. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 19 November 1856

The Peculiarities of Palmer. Urged to confession, Palmer repeatedly denied that he had poisoned Cook by strychnia. This is what logicians call a negative pregnant It is not denial of poisoning, bat of poisouing with the par ticular drag alleged. It is as if a man convicted of murdering another by stabbing denied that he had stabbed him with a sword, implying that it was with some other sharp instrument. JPalmer also protested that he was unjustly condemned, but he does not seem to have asserted bis innocence, but to bave de nied rather that ihe conviction was legally borne oat by the evidence. He appears to have dreaded com mitting himself to a positive falsehood on the brink of the grave, and yet to have shrunk as much from the confession of die tenth, and in this difficulty he resorted to quibble and equivocation. It is to be regretted that endeavours were made to extort con fession, for the assumption should always be that tbe crime has been proved by the process of law. Nothing ...

The Inquirer & Commercial News. WEDNESDAY. NOVEMBEB 19,1856. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 19 November 1856

Quidventmatgne decent, euro etTogo.etoaudeai hoe tarn WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 1856. The recenliy published reporte of our two Agricultural Societies amply demonstrate the material progress of the colony, and the energy and industry of its settlers. We discover from a perusal of these documents thai trie nrodnctive nowers of'ijhe soil are becoming yearly more fully developed, and the agricultural and pastoral capabilities of the colony ratisiactorily established. According to the report of the York Ag ricultural Society there is a considerable in crease of acres under crop this season, and a Luge breadth of land under fallow. It is at the same time noted that there is a slight disinclination to clear land, especially by tenants with short leases, and who are not remunerated for improvements. We cannot but regard the prevalence of the high prices, hitherto ruling for flour and grain as the great incentive to agricultural improvement, however hardly they may hare pressed upon the consu...

[ADVERTISEMENT.] To the Editor of the' Inquirer and Commercial News.' SIR, — A week or two ago, a correspondent of' your contemporary expressed a hope that die coming ball at Toodyay would not be attended with, any of the unpleasantness that marked the meeting of 1855. Now, I am sorry to say, that the hope was not realised, and still more annoyed' at the fact of my having been implicated in the matter, and as one of the stewards, and conse quently, for ihe time being, a public man, and as also that the circumstances have acquired an un pleasant notoriety, I wish to ask yon the favour to insert this statement in your paper. I was requested to stand at one of the doors, to receive the tickets of ihe visitors, with particular %n strueUons as to where the line of admission should be drawn. A party applied for admission wham I considered stood outside of this line, and I therefore applied to three of my brother stewards for their opinion upon the question, and requested permission to all...

To the Editor of the Inquirer and Commercial News.

These gentlemen, vrith the exception of ihe Police Magistrates, are the only paid justices in the colony; and, as their name implies, are ex- ' pected to reside in the district to which they are appointed. Their duties are twofold— judicial and political. In the. former capacity wky see, ex ojficio, Chairmen of the Bench of Magistrates in the locality to which they are attached, and thevare supposed to take a more active share in the magisterial business of the place than their unpaid brethren; in ihe latter capacity --they correspond with the government on matters con nected with the revenue, general administration, and police arrangements of the district to which they belong, as well as upon all questions affect ing the soc...

Theseassertions are put forth by ' One of die In jured.' Is this much injured man a bricklayer or mason, and a free man? Is be capabie of erecting a building throughout in a workmanlike manner? If so, it is something new to me, for I don't believe we have a competent mason or bricklayer in the town (out of die depot); and sorely if a tradesman cannot be found among die non-mifitary, a Sapper may be. allowed to take a job, and perform it in his spare hours without any disparagement to his profession...

Extravagance in Dress. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 19 November 1856

Extravagance in Dress Dress so absurd as that of London and Paris at this hour is sure to disgust society, and go oat very soon; and if the folly left so calamitous results behind it, we should be content to let it hare its little day. But the fact is otherwise, and therefore we venture to remonstrate with those, whoever uiey may oe, wuu gear sway m rnu jiruvuimj of die kingdom of fashion. It is a common thing how for a lady in Paris who has been accustomed to dress well to find that she cannot spend at this time less than £1,000 a-year on dress alone. The materials are no doubt very rich, but the quantity is the marvel. It is such as leaves no trace of the natural human form — any more than the balloons of black silk and the enormous yellow slippers of the Egyptian lady, which we are wont to consider so ugly. The French and English ladies put on their disguise in the shape of flouncings and furbelows, which are actually larger and more inconvenient than the hoops of the last centur...

Extracts from Macaulay's History of England. THE SIEGE OF LONDONDERRY. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 19 November 1856

Extracts from Macaulay's History of Enerland. THE SIEGE OF LONDONBEUBT. By this time July was far advanced, and the state of the city was, hour by hour, be coming more frightful. The number of the inhabitants had been thinned more by famine and disease than by the fire of the enemy. Yet that fire was sharper and more constant than ever. One of the gates was beaten in; and one of the bastions was laid in ruins; but the breaches made by day wers repaired by night with indefatigable activity. Every attack was still repelled. Bat the fighting men of the garrison were so much exhausted that they could scarcely keep their legs. Several of them, in the act of striking at the enemy, fell down from mere weakness. A very small quantity of grain remained, and was doled out by mouthfuls. The stock of salted hides was considerable, and by gnawing them the garrison appeased the rage of hunger. Does, fattened on the blood of the slain, who lay unburied round the town, were luxuries which few could...
