To the Editor of the Inquirer and Commercial News. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 10 December 1856
To the Editor of the Inquirer and Commercial News. SIE, — It often happens that the facility given by the press for the expression of private opinions on public matters induces men to 'rush into print' who can neither write sensibly , gramma tically, or intelligibly, but yet who are so puffed | up with self conceit as to send anonymous letters to the newspapers, to be laughed at and despised by the public, however prized by the writer. In this class I should decidedly rank ?* Delta;' that he is a man of but little education and ob fuscated intellect, any one who reads his letter will at once see ; and that he is some petty con vict officer in the country is the opinion of many. With respect to 'Delta's' abuse of the ma gistracy, it is not worth comment, save that abuse from such a quarter is more complimentary than praise ; but perhaps some adept in making ?out enigmas will explain the meaning of such passages as ' Justice to a [true born Briton is like sap to the tree, ani when she...
NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 10 December 1856
NEW SOUTH WALES. Oar files from Sydney are to the 29th ult The latest commercial intelligence is contained in the ' Empire' of that date: — The grain and flour markets remain much de pressed. The millers' quotations are still £20 to £22, but actual prices are nominal. The prospect of abundance for a long period deters speculative purchases. The only sales reported are portions of damaged Chilian cargoes, but the prices do not indicate the state of the inarket. It is thought likely that prices will suffer a still further decline.

The Emperor Napoleon's plan Against Sebastopol. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 10 December 1856
The Emperor Napoleon's plan Against SebastopoL In M. de Bazancourt's second volume of the History of the Expedition to the Crimea, just published, is to be found the following letter from the Emperor of the - French, which Commandant Favehad been charged to deliver to General Canrobert, Commandant-in-Cbief of the French army in the East, after the rupture of the Con ferences of Vienna. It may be remembered that the Emperor had resolved to proceed in person to the Crimea to share the fatigues and perils of the French army, but had been prevented by grave reasons of State, The following letter communicates to General Canrobert the plan of campaign on which the Emperor intended to act had he gone there. It says: — April 28, 1855. The fire which has been opened against Sebastopol will by this time have either succeeded or failed. In either case it is absolutely necessary to quit tbe defensive position in which the army has remained during the last six months. For this purpose, in accord...
EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE Home Correspondence. London, Monday, July 11. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 10 December 1856
EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE Home Correspondence* (From our own Correspondent. ) London, Monday, July II. A reaction is visibly taking place with respect to public opinion on the late American question, and as tune has been allowed for the more respectable portion of the American community to display their real sentiments with respect to England, a better feeling has been manifested, and it has been cor dially reciprocated in this country. This was the case all along in England, where, as I have before pointed out, the dispute was always considered as a matter relating only to the two Governments in their individual capacities, and not as one bearing upon the public transactions of the countries themselves, unless tbe mismanagement of their rulers involved them in difficulties, which would have been greatly deplored by the more important classes of either state. General acts of courtesy have recently taken place, which go far to prove the real feeling enter tained by the sound and substant...

Williams, who wore the insignia of the Order of the Bath, the Grand Cross of the Legion of Honour, and the Order Medejie. On the left of the Chairman were Colonels Lake and Teesdale, the aides-de-camp of the gallant general. On entering the apartment Sir William Williams was received with several rounds of cheer ing, the entire company standing till the gallant general had taken his seat. After the usual toasts had been drunk, the health of General Williams was given by the Chairman.
