Miscellaneous. THE POLICEMAN'S TEAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 24 December 1856

Jftiscellanemis. THE POLICEMAN'S TEAM. Against die rails he leant, To take a last fond look, At the kitchen he was petted in, And the open-handed cook, He heard die pretty housemaid read — ' The Guards will soon be here.' And the Peeler turned his bracelet round, And wiped away a tear. He thought on beef and pickles. On 'the lobster and the crab, And other dainties that the Force So well knows how to grab. He thought of Susan's sixpences, Of Sarah's supper-beer, And the Feeler turned his bracelet round, And wiped away a tear. For die Guards, the Guards are coming — A week, and we shall find His nose put not less out of joint Than our larder, when he'd dined, Cousins from the Crimea With his rights will interfere — No wonder diat the Feeler sighed, And wiped away a tear. But there is vengeance in his bead, So do not deem his weak — There's many a soldier will be watched And brought before die Beak. And of his rivals he will try To keep our kitchens clear, No sharper eye the steps can...

NEW SOUTH WALES. Our files from Sydney are to die 29th nit 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, bat 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 inarkeL It is thought likely that prices will suffer a still further decline.

Our Eastern friends are about to bestir themselves in the great flour question, meet ings having been, called in York and _Tood yay, for the purpose of eliciting an expres sion of public opinion upon the snbject of the acceptance of the recent tender for floor of foreism manufacture. It appears that from the tenders for the supply of three hundred tons of flour, that of Mr Yelverton, a colonist, and engaged in an important branch of colonial enterprise — the export of timber — was selected for ac ceptance. It is also stated that Mr Yel verton intends to furnish Adelaide and not Western Australian flour, and it is upon this view of the case that the agitation among the agriculturists is based. Hitherto the difference of opinion between the prin cipal commissariat officer and the colonists has been in consequence of the direct im portation by the former...

Review. The Lion Hunter of South Africa, By Gordon Cumming. Murray. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 24 December 1856

%mkw. Tlte Lion Hunter of South Africa, By Gordon Cumming. Murray. This is a cheaper and condensed edition of Mr Cumming's five years in the interior of Africa, adorned with sixteen illustrations. Those who have visited the Museum in Piecadily, and listened to the simple, unpre tending narrative of a gentleman in unim peachable evening costume, can hardly real ise to themselves that he is the hero of these adventures, some of which, truthful as they are, put Munchausen at defiance. Mr Mur ray has done a very acceptable service in placing this attractive volume within the means of a wider circle of readers. View ed merely as a book of travel through unex plored regions, its merit would stand very high; but when we add to that the many perilous hair-breadth escapes that make us hold our breath while we read, we may safely rank it as the most exciting book of personal adventure in our language. By way of specimen, we may be allowed to cite one or two passages, although the book is not ...

Markets. ADELAIDE MERCANTILE REPORT. November 6.1856. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 24 December 1856

Uavkis. ADELAIDE MERCANTILE REPORT. November 6. 1856. Daring the whole of the past winter, until nearly the present moment, our market for almost everv 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, soap, brandies, and some other articles are Terr difficult to move off at fair remunerative rates to the importers, yet some wines, , bottled stout, candles, nun, 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 torn is in favour of the buyer. The bad effects produced br the deficient harvest of 1854-1855, and the high rates paid for a lon...

Men of the Time. CHARLES DICKENS. Charles Dickens, the most popular writer of his time was born in February 1812, at Landport, Portsmouth, His father, the late Mr John Dickens, in the earlier part of his life enjoyed a post m the Navy Pay Department, the duties of which required that be should reside from time to time in different naval stations, — now at Plymouth, now at Ports month, and then at Sheerness and Chatham. ' In the glorious days*9 of the war with France, these towns were full of life, bustle, and character; and the father of ' Boz' was at times fond of dilatinp upon the strange scenes he had witnessed. One of Ms stories described a sitting-room he once enjoyed at Blue Town, Sheerness, abutting on the theatre. Of an evening he used to sit in this room, and could hear what was passing on the stage, and join in the chorus of 'God save the King,' and 'Britannia rules the Waves,' — then the favourite songs of Englishmen. The war being at an end, amongst those who left the pu...

Committee of the House of Lords on Transportation. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 24 December 1856

Committee of the House of Lords on Transportation. We are indebted to the Colonial Secretary for the perusal of the report of this Com- mittee, and the evidence taken before it, and publish an abstract of the evidence delivered by those who have resided in the colony. The purport of the evidence of Captain FitzGerald was as follows : — He resided in Western Australia, as Governor, nearly 7 years, and for 5 years during that period, it was a penal settlement. When he arrived the population was 4,600 ; when he left, it was about 12,000, the addition being derived from free emigrants, ticket-of-leave men, and conditional-pardon men. About 3,700 con- victs had arrived in the colony up to the time he left. A great number of conditional pardon men had emigrated to Melbourne until restrictive laws were passed in Victo- ria. Had it not been for those laws he did not consider, from the date of the discovery of gold, a single conditional-pardon man would have remained in Western Australia. Th...

Three hundred and sixty-five days, with a decimal quotation of hours, minutes, and seconds, have come, been in existence, and are passed and gone, never to return, since last we shouted our farewell to old father December, as he pas sed the equinoctial lino that separates time from eternity! To-day, again, we wave our hand to the old parent as he recedes from oar anxious gaze; and to-morrow we shall look upon the face of his son and heir, and once more cry God's benison on you all! The morrow's sun will lighten up a new division of time; add a figure to our age; open a new era, and spnr the me mory back; calling up visions of the past; covering our senses alternately with sun shine and tears. Brave hearts lie cold, and beautiful faces have withered away in the brief and fleeting epoch. Old affections have been amputated and new affiances formed; and so the stream of life flows on.

The new edition of Mr Dixon's Life of Penn, now before us, derives its chief value from the preface ' in reply to the accusations (we shouid rather e&y, calumnies)) of Mr Macaulay.' That romantic historian de serves no mercy from the critics, not only because he has never shown any himself in the pages of the Edinburgh, but because having been again and again convicted of errors affecting private character, he repeats them again and again, and with more venom than before. It is by no means to the eredit of the writers in the periodical press that they so submissively prostrate themselves before this Barnum of historians. Almost alone of the weekly press, we have fearlessly pointed out his flagrant errors, Ids systematic unfairness; and we are glad to find by the reports which reach...
