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

Secret Diplomacy. We are not without hope that the British people will be rathe7 less liable to this species of annoyance for the futnre. We do not think the people of England will henceforth sit by so quietly while proceed ings to which they have the gravest objec tion, and negotiations of which they have utter distrust, are going on, nobody knows how, under the shield of the Royal preroga tive. The honour of England cau hardly be said to be in its own keeping, when month after month its representatives ask, and ask in vain, what has been done, what complaints have been received from other governments, what answers have been sent, what is the present slate of the quarrel, and what its probable conclusion. Throughout the whole of this recruiting affair, and the correspondence arising out of it, the British public has only known the steps taken by its own Government, when the American government had already acted upon them. The common sen?e of this country would not have allowed Mr C...

A word to the Jews. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 3 December 1856

A word to the Jews The question of Jewish disabilities, and the re moval of the obstacle in the Oath of Abjuration which keeps a Jew from sitting and voting in the House of Commons, must cither assume larger proportions or sink into a political burlesque. For .successive Ministers to briqg forward or support liiils, avowedlv intended to admit the Jews into Piirliamcnt with the knowledge that they will be rejected by the House of Lords, and without taking any steps to bring that House to its senses, exhibits a deplorable want, not only of dignity, bat of decency. It is likewise degrading to the House of Commons to have its will upon a question that peculiarly cunrerns itself, systematically thwarted by another branch of the legislature. Lord Lyndhurst wisely observed, in making his motion — I have always considered this house as the safe guard of the people against rash and hasty legisla tion. But to stand as a barrier against bills coining repeatedly from* the other house upon a sub...

COTTON. The following notice of motion was given in the New South Wales Parliament in Sept. last by Mr Holt:^ 1.

The Return of the Guards. JULY, 1856. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 3 December 1856

The Return of the Guards. July, 1856. (From the Spectator, July 5.) Two years — an age of glory and of pain! — Since we with blessings and with shouts and tears, And with high hopes, pursued your parting train With every thing but fears. Too %htly then, perchance, we let' you go; For war is sweet to them that never tried, And hearts are sullen, whieh refuse to know its splendour and its pride. Forth from beside onr hearths we saw yon pass, And guessed that battle must be stern 'and strong; War's shapes we saw, but dimly, in a glass, — Ite shapes of wrath and wrong. We saw not, Heaven in mercy did not show, The fiery squadrons rushing to their doom, An army in its winding-sheet of snow. Slow sinking to the tomb. We saw not Scutari's piled-up agonies, Nor those blest hands aud hearts that brought relief; Splendours and glooms were hidden from our eyes, — What glory and what grief! One thing we saw, one only thing we knew, That come what might, ye would not bring to shame The loved lan...

The Contretems at the Levee. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 3 December 1856

The Contretems at the Levee. A snms farce, after a regular five-act comedy, is the usual coone at the theatres, and this example has been followed in another sphere. Scarelyhas Mr Crampton settled down in home-quarters, and the grave question whereof he was the centre pivot *i somewhat settled down with him. wfc«n * little dis pute is enacted bearing exactly the same proportion to the larger dispute as farce bears to comedy.

To the Editor of the Inquirer and Commercial News. SIR, — Having read in your last issue a letter by ' Reformer,' regarding the salaries of Resident Magistrates, perhaps you will allow me, through the medium of your Journal, to state some senti ments of my mind, not as regarding tike duties pertaining- solely to the offices of the above gentle men, but to the body of magistrates in general. in a penal colony where bo many men (trans ports) are congregated together, and all having passed, in a more or less degree, through the or deals of the law, it may naturally be supposed that a great number of these are as acute and almost as versant in the petty criminal court pro ceedings as the justices who pass sentences upon them. Bearing this in mind, and taking a review of the gentlemen who compose the benches of magistra...

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

VICTORIA. ' Now that our Parliament is so far complete, the public are beginning to discu»s with some interest its probable course of action, and its efiects upon the government of the colony. Some people seem to think that, despite the uniform success of Ministers in their own elections, they will be so slenderly sup ported in Parliament that they will not be able, to retain office. Others are bo scared with ideas of the overwhelming majorities wnicn tney will be able to command, that.they dread more unreasonable and obstructive courses than ever. We beiive that both parties are wrong — that the present Ministry will be strong enough to retain office, but that they will not be strong enough to ignore die demands of a very active community out-of-doors. We have endeavor ed to classify the members of the Assembly, accord ing to the part which they are likely to play. On a question of * want of confidence ' in the present Min istry, we believe that they would be divided nearly as foll...

The Stolen Treaty of Peace [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 10 December 1856

The Stolen Treaty of Peace A considerable sensation was produced in tbe month of April last in the political world by tbe publication in two of the Brussels journals of tbe text of the treaty of peace signed by tbe congress of Paris. Four persons on Saturday June 7, appeared before the court of assizes of the Seine to answer tbe charge of having improperly contributed to such publication.

The indictment charged Brossard I with having, at tbe instigation of the pri soner Moner, surreptitiously taken away j from the imperial printing-office a copy of i the treaty in question, and given it to Lejolivet. It appeared that, Brossard happening to live with bis wife in tbe bouse...

SPWds. ADELAIDE MERCANTILE REPORT. November 6, 1856. Daring the whole of the past mater, until nearly the present moment, out market for almost every description of imported goods has been marked by great inactivity, amounting at times to depression; but within the last few days some symptoms of re turning business have appeared, and though most oilmen's stores, hams and bacon, eosip, brandies, and some other articles are very difficult to move off at fair remunerative rates to the importers, vet some wines, .'bottled stout, candles, rum, gin, and other goods required more particularly for summer con sumption, are finding buyers at reasonable rates. The market, however is abundantly supplied with almost everything, and with the exception, perhaps, of draught gin, the consumption of which has much increased, and sugars, of which the supply is limited, the turn is in favour of the buyer. Tbe bad effects produced by the deficient harvest of 1854-1855, and the high rates paid for a long...

The Projected Snez Ship Canal The European Commission af Engineers assem bled last week in Paris to discuss the details of the plan for cutting a canal across the Isthmus of Suez have brought their labours to a close. The follow ing is a summary statement of the resolutions agreed upon at the various sittings:—]. The Commission have rejected the system of indirect trade across Ezvpt, and have adopted the principle of a direct cutting from Suez to the Mediterranean. 2. They have rejected the system of supplying the maritime canal from the fresh water of the Nile, and have adopted that which supplies it with sea water. 3. They have discussed the advantages and incon veniences of a canal with continuous embankments from one sea to the other, and at the close of their discussion it was decided that the canal should not be embanked in its passage across the bitter lakes. The effect of the interposition of the bitter lakes, thus left open to the waters of the canal, being to neutralize th...
