We, this week, publish an abstract of the evidence taken by the Lord's Committee on transportation, so far as relates to our colony, and delivered by Western Australian nit nesses, together with the report of the Com mittee upon such evidence. It will be seen that so far from wishing to relinquish transportation the Committee advise its continuance, upon an amended principle, to this colony; and also, that they strongly recommend a reduction in the price of land in Western Australia. The whole of the evidence was wonder fully in favour of the reformatory system as established among us, and was calculated to afford sound and reliable information to those who were interested in its progress. The four or five gentlemen who gave their testimony on this occasion contributed more real information to the Government, and have done more good to the co...

Correspondence. To the Editor of the Inquirer and Commercial News. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 31 December 1856

dlorraipMktttt. t£§~A-! a general rule, 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 remarks in to-day's issue upon the contract having been taken for Adelaide flour are very good, but it is a pity they were ever re quired. You stand as a mediator between the two parties, but never before was this required of you, for before the arrival of Governor Kennedy, the government were with, and not against, the people. We know it is the duty of the Commissariat to buy at the cheapest market, but the wants of the commissariat were not so immediate as to require them to fly to foreign markets before making a patient endeavour to be supplied by the home markets. The town folks say ' you farmers have only yourselves to blame.' How I would ask, can the farmers contract to supply the government, or offer to sell to private parties, wheat while it is green in the ...

York. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 31 December 1856

!?#. (From a correspondent.) We were visited a few diys since with a very heavy rain, which lasted for several hours without intermission. I do not recollect such heavy showers before occurring in York. As usual, vivid flashes of lightning and loud thunder ac companied the H pelting of the pitiless storm.' I think much harm wUl be done to the stacks not thatched or properly covered. The announce ment of the partial break-up of the ticket-of-leave depot and the Adelaide flour affair have caused business to come to a dead lock. The store keepers are wearing most rueful countenances, and a merry Christmas is out of all reason. Much trouble and vexation is caused to suitors in the York Court by the delay in settling cases. On Saturday two magistrates could not be got together, and the parties, after waiting till 3 p.m., rather than be put to the expense and annoyance of coming again to York, agreed to settle their differences out of Court — Messrs Brockman and Viveash arbitrators, and M...

[ADVERTISEMENT.] Holloway's Ointment and Pills have cured ulcers of thirty years' standing. — Mr W. Hargrare,of Mac quarrie Street, Hobart Town, suffered from a bad leg, which defied every kind of treatment; he had tried every available remedy to cure it for thirty years, but it only became worse, rendering him a complete object of misery to himself and all around him. He was recommended by a friend to commence using Holloway's Ointment and Pills; at first he was reluctant to do so, but by persuasion he at last consented to give them a trial, and fortunate for him he did, for by persevering with these remedies for ten weeks he was completely cured, although he had suffered almost a martyrdom for upwards of thirty years.

Committee of the House of Lords on Transportation. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 31 December 1856

Committee of the House of Lords on Transportation. We resume our abstract by publishing the purport of the evidence of — Mb G. F. Moore — who stated that he was in public emplor in Western Australia for 22 years, and left 18 months after the arrival of convicts. The colony is well suited for receiving convicts, la bour being in demand. There were public works to be performed, for instance, a jetty at the seaport of Fremantle, roads, bridges, water-tanks, and wells. The result of the experiment bad been satisfactory, and the apprehensions of those who opposed the measure have been quieted. Convicts, when they ceased to be employed on public works, might en gage as farm-servants, shepherds, sawyers, splitters, fee. If convicts were supplied to the settlers gra tuitously, or at low rates of wages, from 1,000 to 2,000 annually might be absorbed, but die propor tion between the bond and free population most be maintained. It was understood that there should be one free settler sent out f...

Markets. ADELAIDE MERCANTILE REPORT. November 6, 1856. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 7 January 1857

Martlets. ADELAIDE MERCANTILE REPORT. November 6, 1856. During the whole of the past winter, 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 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 very difficult to move off at fair remunerative rates to the importers, yet 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 li^'ft*1, the turn is in favour of the buyer. The bail effects produced by the deficient harvest of 1854-1855, and the high rates paid for a ...

The Use of a Line thrown to Wrecked Vessels from the Shore. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 7 January 1857

The Use of a Line thrown to Wrecked Vessels from the Shore. (From the Life Boat.) It is a commonly-received opinion, that if a line can only be thrown over a stranded vessel, die salva tion of those on board her is almost secured. It seems to be presumed that those at either end of this slender communication, after getting over that chief difficulty, must be acquainted with die right means to avail themselves of it, and that the minor difficulty of usine it as a viaduct through the raging surf is one then readily surmounted. Such, however, is a mistaken notion : apart from tbe possibility of a wrecked crew being numbed by cold, or otherwise unable to avail themselves of the aid placed in their hends, they may be ignorant of its proper use, and a mismanagement of it either by diem or die parties using it from the land may, and indeed too often has marred all, and left diem to perish. In a former number of the Life-Boat Journal, in an article on die subject of effecting communication ...

The New Governor of Victoria. The * Times' says:— Sir Henry Barkly is to be the new Governor of Victoria.' After having passed seven years in die West Indies, and conducted die government of two important colonies with eminent success at a critical period, he will almost immediate ly return to England and receive his appointment to the charge of the new and wealthy society which has lately sprung into existence on die shores of Australia. We may, without the least possible affectation of prophecy, say that the vast and singu lar emigration of die last few years has planted on the Australian continent communities which are des tined to become one day a powerful nation. Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, and Hobart Town arc to us what New York and die cities of the American coast were a century ago. The colonists of Australia have gone forth carrying with diem die independent spirit of die mother -country, and exhibit even in an exaggerated form, die old self-will and impatience of control....

NEW SOUTH WALES. Our files from Sydney are to the 29th ulu 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 market. It is thought likely that prices will suffer a soil further decline.

The old familiar guards, whom we hod known eo well as & part of the lioyal pageant and the garrison of this metropolis, passed through our streets on their return from taking no inglorious part in the siege and capture of SebastopoL True to their name and their character, they have been employed not in any idle scheme of conquest, but in the protection of an ally and the preservation of European liberty. What they seem to be in our streets and parks, in sunshine and holyday, they have also proved themselves under the most terrible cir cumstances of war. They marched yesterday with the regularity of machines, and formed in Hyde Park with the solidity of stone walls; and there were possibly tho...

To the Editor oft7ie ' Inquirer and Commercial Nevss.'

Are my statements maniacal, truculent or sedi tious ? Is my language as uncouth as the If orse nian's, or cuspidated to finely for the official con cinnity of the ' wise ' and ' short ' men of this colony, that they should ' rush into print ' and disclaim all connection with the ' wishy washy ' productions of your humble servant ? Truly they deserve pity. My ' wise ' disclaimant states there are not ten sensible men in the colony who would agree with me. I believe him — for the very magistrates themselves may be, sensible enough, but they, as a body, are not possessed of sufficient education, or the sense it imparts, to uphold with dignity the honors of their office.
