NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 17 December 1856
NEW SOUTH WALES. Our files from Sydney are to the 29th nit The latest commercial intelligence is contained in the ** Empire' of that date: — The grain and floor 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 market. It is thought likely that prices will suffer a soil further decline.

TASMANIA. Our latest commercial intelligence from Tasmania is contained in die following extracts from the ' Cornwall Chronicle*': — Launceston, November 1.— The flour market has become rather firmer here in consequence of last advices per *? Royal Shepherd,' but we have not yet heard of any important transactions for shipment. The retail prices are the same as last week.

tfflBW^*i^'^r*^*^^p^*^^y^^ [?] was much speculation as to whathe^wonld dowith that commoner of gigantic intellect, Henry ? Brougham, .member for the. West Riding of Yorkshire. Hie Lordship offered hiia the Attorney-Generalship, which Mr Brougham indignantly- rejected, thereupon going down to the House of Commons, and emphatically declaring that he repudiated all connection with the new administration. It was term time, and the next morning he lad a consultation appointed to be held in the robing-room at Westminster Hall, in a case nominally against the Sheriff of Chester, which was to be argued that term. Con trary to the etiquette of the bar, his learned brethren, one of whom had taken silk and was consequently his leader, waited for him at the consultation at least 10 minutes, but he did not make his appearance. The con sultation soon broke up — they never last long — and the attorney on leaving the robing-room met Mr Brougham, to whom be said, ' O, Mr Brougham, we wailed for you ...
Western Australia. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 17 December 1856
Western Australia. The following are the passages in the . Emigration Commissioners' Report which refer to this Colony: — The accounts of the colony are sat^« factory. The quantity of laud brought into cultivation and the stock depastured are largely increased, and sufficient to meet the increased demand arising from the intro duction of convicts, military pensioners, and free emigrants. The exports, especially of timber, have also increased, but in mining operations little progress has been made. The Go vernor states that ' the want of capital to continue the working of the Geraldine cop* per mine is much to be deplored, especially looking at the high price realised for the last 30 tons, of £30 per ton, lately ex ported.' : With reference to the social condition of the colony, the Governor makes the fol lowing statement: — 'There are now 3,000 convicts scattered throughout this colony; and such is the peaceful reality prevailing,: accompanied by the full exercise of tbe social obli...

[ADVERTISEMENT.] An astonishing cure of Dropsy. — A poor woman residing at River Bay, Adelaide, was visited by the Rev. Charles Hall, of the London Mission, being almost in a dying state from this terrible malady. She had the water taken from her six times, and was so weak the last time, that her dissolution was hourly anticipated, the good man still kept beside her to the last, finding she could not be worse than she was, and as he always carried a quantity of Holloway's Pills with him,, having himself derived signal benefit from 'using them, he persuaded her to take a few doses, these made her feel better, and she wished to continue them, which she did. The result was, that after a few weeks she was able to leave her bed, and in five was completely cured. Mr Hall has communi cated these particulars for the benefit of the suffering public. Herne Hill. ALL persons having horses, mares, or foals running in the inclosure at Herne Hill are requested to remove the same within three week...

(From another Correspondent.) The report of your contemporary, that a large portion of Mr Wittenoom's run had been destroyed by fire is, I am happy to state, incorrect. Also, the statement that one of the native horse stealers was shot by Kelly. We have not had fires in the vicinity of York, while the natives have &nbsp; been captured, and both sentenced to 18 months imprisonment at Rottnest. Mr Monger's horse, the winner of the Yorkshire Stakes at the recent meeting, is, I fear, irreparably injured for gallop ing. While rolling in the Avon on Saturday, he received a terrible gash just below the near knee. It is supposed the wound was occasioned by a broken glass bottle. The settlers are much annoyed by the accep tance of the tender for Adelaide flour. There is to be a meeting this week on the subject. It is said that they have resolved to employ no more ticket-of-leave men and that those in service will be returned to the government, and I do not know what besides. Dec., 8t...

To the Editor of the Inquirer and Commercial News. SIR, — It having been generally reported that I am the author of a letter signed ' Delta,' which appeared in a late number of your journal, I feel it a duty I owe to myself, and to the de partment to which I belong, to deny having wiiKteu dimui a ikluhi, w ul ueuig cognizant 01 its having been written. As such reports are calcu lated to compromise me with my superior officers, I crave the indulgence of a space in your columns for this my positive disavowal of having written the letter signed ' Delta,' or of having on any previous occasion contributed to the local jour nals. I have the honour to be, Sir, Your obedient Servant, THOMAS SHORT. General Post-office, Perth, 7 December 20, 1856. $ [We cannot give insertion to any more letters from gentlemen who may feel inclined to disavow all connection with ' Delta.' — Ed.]

To the Editor of the Inquirer and Commercial News. SIR,— The authorship of 'Delta' has been ascribed to many, and from private letters below I gather that it is supposed by some that I am connected with it. Now I am puzzled to know why I should be suspected, because I am not in the habit of writing in the newspapers ; my opi nions must be known to be totally at variance with ' Delta,' and therefore it is both surprising and Tiaininil 4-f\ mn 4-*\ RtiA 4-Vio+ wm Aqnn^ cliAnii] give me credit for penning such a wishy-washy production, replete with calumny and coarse in vective. They really ought to know me better ! My present purpose is to state that I had nothing whatever to do with the letter in question, and 1 feel it an act of public duty to say this. Bitter as ' Delta' may be against the magistracy (obviously arising from ...
