The Inquirer & Commercial News. Quid verum atque decens, curo et rogo, et omnis in noc sum WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 10, 1856. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 10 December 1856
Quid verum atque deans, euro etrogo, et omnitin hoc turn WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 10, J856.' We have heard conjectures hazarded to the effect that the permanency of the Convict establishment in this colony did nut rest on a very secure basis, that, in fact, it was not improbable hut that transportation would cease altogether, or, it continued, tnata new penal settlement would be founded. We believe these impressions to be erroneous, for in the first instance the ticket-of-leave system in the Mother Country has been al most universally pronounced a failure, and, in the second place,, it is contrary to reason to suppose, after so heavy expenses had been incurred in forming a penal station in West ern Australia, that it would be abandoned, and an entirely new establishment at a simi lar cost created elsewhere. Further, we discover, from the report of a debate in the House of Lords, published in the Morning Post of April 19, that the general feeling was in favour of increasing the number of ...

(From tite Illustrated London News August 30th) ? America. — A complete fusion and melting down of all shades of opinion is going on preparatory to the great 'casting' of rotes in the Presidential moulds now ready for next November. Various metals, and so many opposing elements into oue mass would astonish any one save a New York politician — Republicans, Democrats, Know-Nothings Nigger Worshippers, Loco-focos, Hard-shells, Soft shells, Abolitionists, and Black Republicans, are all being placed in the same crucible, and although of such opposing natures are fusing in a surprising manner. Revolution, in fact, seems to be the order of the day — revolution in California, revolution in Kansas, revolution in Nicaragua, a social revolution in Mexico, and a complete revolution of parties in the United States. Principles are beginning to be preferred to men, and a healthy movement is going on, which promises immense results to the future of the Dnite-i States, and all die world besides, Soc...
EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE The DOLPHIN from England. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 17 December 1856
EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE The DOLPHIN from England. j-ue JL/oipnm arrived on Thursday eve ning, having left England on 2nd Sept.; her mail reached Perth on Friday morning. The additional news brought by her, as contained in the papers, is not of much im portance. Private letters, however, contain items of intelligence of local interest. From one of these letters we learn that the new Man* Company would at first only ten der to go direct to Melbourne, but that a clause was eventually inserted that tbey afarald call at the Sound on their way back, and subsequently- they requeued to be al lowed to call on their way out| and they seem to be fully alive to the advantage and importance of having a coaling ' 'station there. The Treasury hare agreed to give them a lighthouse at Break Sea Island, but the gentleman who communicates this in telligence thinks that, to make it complete, they must have another at the entrance of the harbour. The contract is for five years, and the subsidy £185,000 pe...
Correspondence. To the Editor of the Inquirer and Commercial News. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 17 December 1856
8dP'Ms a general ride, we wish it to be understood that we do not identify ourselves with the opinions or expressions of our correspondents. To the Editor of the Inquirer and, Commercial News. SIR, — Your correspondent 'Delta,' is not sparing of the whip, (a stockman's no doubt) ; he has ' cut and come again.' In common parlance, is there no one to advise bun to 'shut up,' and to point out that he is only ' wasting bis sweet ness on the desert air ?' He is neither a fanner nor a ' counterjumper ;' then to what class does he belong ? Ue is either a ticket man or a Go vernment officer, and both are intimately con nected. I agree in the main with him, that an infusion ?f men who have some knowledge of the law, and are competent to take depositions, is necessary to the constitution of tb.3 magistracy, particularly in the rural districts ; but how is this to be brought about when able men cannot be awakened from the lethargy in which they are enveloped, and argument fails to convince the...

The Constantia Vineyard. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 17 December 1856
The Constantia Vineyard. The following information was collected by Lt. Du Cane, &. £., during his short stay at the Cape en route to England and trans mitted by him to a friend in this colony: — ''Some of the Cape bush is exceedingly like the Western Australian bush, flowers and alL We went to Constantia and I asked Mr. Cloete several ques tions about his methods of growing and manufacture of the vine and wine, and will put down what may be useful to your vine-growers. All his vines are short pruned ; two eyes as at the Swan. Long pruning he says will, no doubt, give more fruit, but the disadvantages are that more labour is required while the vines, as they yield mote will require more manure and that renders the quality of the grape inferior. He only manures once in eight or ten years and with common stable manure, but bones are the best. In this hot climate the long pruning from allowing less shade for the grapes renders them liable to be spoilt by the sun. He does not mi...
Markets. ADELAIDE MERCANTILE REPORT. November 6, 1856. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 17 December 1856
UTarkis. ADELATOB MERCANTILE REPORT. November 6. 1856. During the whole of the past wiater, until nearly the present moment, our market for almost every description of imported goods has been marked by great inactivity, amounting at times to depression; but yitbm the last few days Gome symptoms of re turning business have appeared, and though most oilmen's stores, hams and bacon, soap, brandies, and some other articles are very difficult to more off at fair remunerative rates to the importers, yet some wines, .bottled stout, caudles, 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. - The bad effects produced by the deficient harvest of 1854-1855, aad the high rates paid for a lo...
