Mucal aiid §eittestt-[ Jntettt^cuce. Advices from the Vasse acquaint as that Mr Hejjpingston's party at Castle Sock had secured about 12 tons of oU, and the season had yet a few weeks to run. The Loehinvar was to sail last Wednesday, with a full cargo of limber. The timber is described as of first rate quality. The Grasshoppers were still swarming over the place, but had not attained a sufficient size to enable them to do much mischief. The crops are described as looking very welL ? ♦' ?

Miscellaneous News. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 26 November 1856

Miscellaneous News* The Viceroy of Egypt has just resolved upon running steamers, carrying the Egypt ian flag, all round the Bed Sea, from Suez to Cosseir, Massawah, Aden, Mocha, Jedda, Yamboo, and to extend occasionally to Bussorah and Bagdad. The project is to be executed by a company with a capital of £600,000, half of which will be sub scribed by the Viceroy. His highness has recently established a Dromedary Corps, of about 800 men, or 400 dromedaries, of which he is much enamoured, and takes them about with him wherever he goes. Irately, having honoured a French mer chant of Alexandria, by accepting his in vitation to dine with him in a country house on the canal, his highness took with him his whole Dromedary Corps, who made no small havoe in the Frenchman's grounds in endeavouring to appease their appe tites. A letter from Hamburg gives an account of the Orleanist movements in that place. On the 24th of this month the young Comte de Paris, who during his minority has been und...

COLONIAL NEWS. By the Frances we have received onr usua files, our latest date from South Australia being 7th November. The Champion had not arrived when theJfrances sailed. Floured grain had fallen in all the Australian Kuomes, tne quotations being — South Australian flour, £20; wheat, 7s to 7«s 6d; Victoria flour, £23 to £-24: wheat, 8s to 9s 9d; New South Wales flour, £20 to £22.

The South Australian Register, in its summary of Nov. 6, states, with, reference to postal commu nication, that as the Legislature have determined not to subsidize any scheme that does not include the deposit of the South Australian mails en route to Victoria, in all probability coasting ves sels would be employed to carry the mails between Adelaide and Melbourne.

Review. Revised English version of the Holy Scriptures By the American Bible Union. Part I. London; Trübner. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 26 November 1856

IJUuiflrr. Revised English version of the Holt/ Scriptures By the American Bible Union. Fart I. London; Triibner. Quite recently the Earl of Shaftesbury protested against any revision of the authorised translation of the Bible, on the ground that it would unsettle our faith, and confound simple-minded people by the di versities of rendering. His argument, if it means anything, means this: that King James's version, is the rerealcd aDd inspired text, and the dot to the i and the cross to the t are from Uod — that tve must not study either the Greek or Hebrew texts, because they would shake our belief in the doctrines we have found (or have been supposed to find) in the English Bible. This may do inside Exeter Hall, but no where else. If it were adopted, we should have to revert to Wickliffe's text, for certainly the successive versions of Tynedale (Matbew's), Coverdale, Cran mer, Geneva, and of the bishops, must all have (led to donbt and conflict of opinion to say nothing of unautho...

Quidverum atgue deceits, euro et rogo, el omttis in hoc sum WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 26, 1856. In consequence of the impetus given to ag ricultural pursuits duriug the past four or five years by the introduction of labour the productive capacity of the colony will at last be fairly tested, and the result will de monstrate that we cannot alone, as regards quantity and quality, improve upon those crops which we have hitherto cultivated, but that we can produce other varieties of the vegetable kingdom of general utility, and which have hitherto in a very partial degree engaged our attention. The Agricultural and Horticultural So cieties of the Colony have done much to en courage increased agricultural enterprize. Their periodical meetings, shows, and dis tribution of premiums invite friendly com petition. ; and their reports furnish a reliable account of the progress of the districts to which they relate, occasionally illustrated (a practice whieh cannot be too strongly commended) by local ...

[ADVERTISEMENT.]— Hollotoay's Oint ment and Pills, cure of Piles, after fourteen year's affliction, — Mr M. C, of Portland, Victo ria, was a martyr to this complaint for 14 years, rendering him an object of misery to himself as well as to his friends ; he shunned society, lest he should let those around him observe his af fliction, and thus he suffered secretly. As he had tried every remedy without success, he at last gave up in despair all hopes of recovery ; but re solved to give Holloway's Ointment and. Pills a last trial, and fortunate itovas he did so, for these potent remedies cured him in five weeks. He feels so grateful for the cure effected, that he wishes these facts to be made public for the be nefit of similar sufferers. fpENDERS are invited for certain work \_ to be done at the Western Australian Bank, consisting of paper-hanging, paint ing, and other repairs.

The political interest cf the fortnight appears to be divided between the affairs of Italy and Spain, in which latter country an outbreak has takes place of such magnitude as seriously to endanger, at least, the existing Government, and the cry for a Republic has already beeu heard among the Insurgents. France has sent 5,000 men to the Pyrenees and 15, 000 more, are, it is said, to be recalled from Africa, to be ready in case of need, though what to do has not yet appeared.

Mr Locke brings forward three horses, Mr Heppingstoue two, and Mr Yelverton two.

A bridge is in course of erection (by private sub scription) over the New river, and Mr Yelverton has come forward so liberally with assistance in mo ney and cartage, that it is to be named M Yelverton Bridge.'

COLONIAL NEWS. New South Wales. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 3 December 1856

COLONIAL NEWS. New South Wales Our dates are to October 29. The papers are full of local politics, bear ing upon the several changes of ministry, of which there had been three in a very short period. The following resolutions were adopted at a meeting of merchants and traders noon the occasion of an attempted alteration of the tariff by the Legislature: — 1. That it is highly objectionable to resort to frequent alterations in the Tariff; even as a tempo rary expedient to meet the exigencies of the public service, inasmuch as they are extremely injurious to the free course of trade and prejudicial to the public interest; especially at the pcesent time, when a movement has been originated for the purpose of promoting an assimilation of the tariff of the Austra lasian Colonies. 2. That the additions to the Tariff proposed by tbe present Government are, in themselves, objec tionable, for the following reasons: — 1st — The proposed duty on unmanufactured wood, iron, slates, and oils is e...

J&rcat and^eimsHt^JfirfettDjettCf. : A pabagbaph has been pointed out to us contained in the parliamentary report of the Some News of the 21st July, in which the Secretary of State for the Colonies, in reply to a question by Mr W. Swart, stated that 'it was chiefly in the Western Australian Colonies that capital punishments were car ried to a greater extent than they were here, (England) * * but considering timt the Western Australian Colonies had their own local legislatures, they of course must be the best judges of the extent to which capital punishments ought to be carried on, and he should decline to interfere with them.' Now, with reference to' the above statement, we are inclined in common charity to suppose, that the Home News, in its abstract of.the detailed reports appearing in the daily papers, has fallen into error, for we can scarcely imagine that Mr Labouchere would speak of* the Western Australian Colonies or of t/teir legislatures, as he must have been perfec...

Nicaragua. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 3 December 1856

Nicaragua We are in possession (says the Panama S'ar of August 14th) of private reliable advices from Nicaragua of the highest im portance. It would seem that this un fortunate country never is to hare peace. Anarchy and misrule exist there now in their worst form. Walker's position is a most precarious one. He has only twelve jiunarea toiiowers — an tom — whilst rtivas, who siill contends that he is President, is fortifying himself at Canendagua, and has already three thousand well-armed troop3. He has the S3'mpathy of the entire country, except the few Americans who still adhere to Walker, and his countrymen are daily rushing to his standard. Honduras and Guatemala are organizing forces to invade Nicaragua and drive Walker from the country; and it is understood that as soon as the dry season resumes — now at hand — they will make a descent on Nicaragua, liivas will, of course, receive their sympathy nnd co-operation, as Walker is now regard ed by the people of Nicaragua as a usurp...

CALIFORNIA. By the arrival of the ' Star King' we have San Francisco papers to the 6th August. The city was still in the power of the Vigilance Committee, but there were evident si^ns of its speedy dissolution visible. This result w;is being brought about by various causes. The arrest of Jud^e Terry for wounding one of the committee's policemen, in resisting the illegal seizure of a person then in company with him by Hopkins, has caused considerable excitement throughout the State, and meetings have been held in various places condemning the proceedings of the committee. A split has also taken place to some extent in the committee itself. From 150 to 200 of the members had been dismissed through the operation of a process called by them ' purification/' Some of the persons dismissed were captains of companies, and were, of course, cognizant of most of the secret proceedings of the illegal tribunal, and it is thought will be quite willing in revenge for their dismissal, to divulge th...
