KERTCH AND YENIKALE. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 5 April 1856
ICERTCH AND YRNIKALE. : We have news from Kertcli and Yenikale up to the 5th instant. The new regiments given over to General Vivian are very superior to. those he had down here, as regards both discipline and the demeanour' of the superior officers, who ac cepted the British commanders with much cor diality, and even, apparently, with joy. A for midable line of works was in course of con l truction at Kertcli. The hutting of the troops was nearly completed, but had been interrupted by rain. There was little sickness: out of 4000 men at Yenikale there were but 27 of all ranks in hospi tal. So the officers were hopeful of getting through, the winter without much loss, and of being ordered upon active service in early spring. It would be a capital forco to send to Asia, which assuredly will be the scene of important operations next year.

THE CRIMEA. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 5 April 1856
THE CRIMEA. General Jean Duramlo was to replace General La Marmora in the command of the Sardinian troops during the absence of the latter. Marshal Pelissier was spoken of as the probable eomman der-in-chief of all the allied forces in the Crimea. A letter from Kalisch, of the 25th ult., in the Austrian Gazette, says :—According; to tile latest accounts from the Crimea, the Russian troops have been reinforced by a regiment of the Hussars of the Guard, and by the Radetzky Regiment of Hussars, formerly stationed at Odessa. It is therefore evident that no want of provisions is ex perienced by Prince Gortschakoff. , A letter from Odes-a of the 21st ult., in the Austrian Gazette, says :—Large bodies of troops are marching from the Crimea into Bassarabia. There is not, however, any intention of evacuating the former, as their places will be filled by other trooj)3 from the reserve, and by the militia. Ge neral Gortschakoft' will, it is said, be replaced in the Crimea by Count Osten-Sackeu...
THE WAR IN ASIA. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 5 April 1856
THE WAR IN ASIA. The Post says:—We believe that despatches have been received which state that Omar Pacha, in consequence of the fall of Kara, has found it expedient to retreat on Redoubt-Kaleh. The Journal de Constantinople affirms that the garrison of Erzeroum amounts to 16,000 men, and that the Egyptian contingent will raise that num ber to 27,000, while other corps sent there from different points will place the Turkish forces at 35,000 men. In addition the Impartial de Smj/rnc, of the 8th December states that Erzeroum is abun dantly supplied with provisions, and possesses an excellent artillery. The Austrian journal, Fremden Blatt learns from Varna that the Russian General Susloff took possession of the defiles of Hassan Kaleli, as soon as Selim Pasha retreated to Erzeroum. The greater portion of the Russian army will winter at Kars. Intelligence from Constantinople, of the 24'h ultimo, states that many persons had already quit ted Erzeroum, fearing that it would be attacked by...

COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE. . . SANDHURST GOLD CIBCULAB. Advertiser. Office, iYuluv Evening. Gold remains (it £3 10s. 3d. It is probable that a "further reduction will bo made in a few days; the .ad vices by the Oliver Lang point that way. . Mr. Banner man reports:— . . " The price of. gold is £8 10s.. 3d., Last Saturday we intimated a probable fall which, from an accidemul circumstance, did not take place, but ou Tuesday morn: ing advices were received from town which caused an immediate and important reduction in price. The price nt which purchases have been made for some weeks past lias been ruinous, and to those who knew anything of the business it lias all along been apparent that the extravagant height to which the price was forced by what we may almost term insane competition would be immediately followed by a sudden and violent re-action. This-lias now taken place, and by mutual arrangement among the banks the price is fixed at.a fair rate for all parties. It would be interesti...
