Cronstadt and Dundonald. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 15 August 1855

He asks ns for a trial of his plan: even for a competent committee to see and judge. He is refused. Why, we fear, is only too apparent. Yet the government that pretends to ignore ourgrcat est sailor — that confounds a man whose life has been illustrated by die rarest inventive genius with die vulgar herd of quacks — has not die courage to de fend its opinions and its injustice. An independent member rises in the house and asks what ministers meant to do with Lord Dundonald's project.

THE INQUIRER & COMMERCIAL NEWS. Quid veruna atque decens, curo et rogo, et omnis in hoc sum. WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 15, 1855. The Colonists really have bestirred them- selves, and we are really to have a Public Meeting at Perth, and auxiliary meetings throughout the Province. They do not view with utter indifference the existing po- sition of the Colony, nor do they appear inclined to submit quietly to the exactions of the Home Government. By advertisements which are published in to day's issue, it is evident that a movement is already made, and we hope we shall have soon to record notices of a similar nature emanating from every district in the Province. It is proposed that, at each of the local meetings, delegates shall be chosen to re- present, at the great Central Meeting, the opinions of the inhabitants of each indi- vidual district, and, if properly carried out, there is little doubt but that the plan will answer admirably. But it appears to us hardly fair that the Perth Me...

Ipsixtiaimms.

Their legions, in imitation of the infidels, have insulted the holy things of our religion....... . .But, by the will of the Lord, the crimfts of our enemies have not proved profitable to them; and their frequent defeats, the terrible tempests of the Black Sea, which swallow up their vessels, and the sickness which decimated their armies, proved the action of the powerful hand of God, fighting on our side. Not withstanding all this, our enemies, mad dened by the loss of their armies, are now congregating other forces of even a more formidable character; they are also endea vuuimg vu cueuu men unjust...

Communication with Australia. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 22 August 1855

^ ? — Communication with Australia. Her Majesty's Government have officially intimated that the Post-officeauthorities have under consideration the renewal of a regular steam communication with Anstralia. This announcement has given great satisfaction to the Australian trade. The want of a re gular and quicker system of communication between England and Australia has been very much felt, and has given occasion for great ..dissatisfaction on both sides. The late serious disturbances at Ballaarat have, however, forced on the attention of the Go vernment the necessity, or at least expe diency, to the political interests of England of a better and more regular interchange of communication. The colonies are willino and ready to contribute towards the mainte nance of a properly organized system of mail packet service, but in consequence of the difficulty hitherto experienced in obtain ing prompt and satisfactory co-operation from the Home Government in furtherance of their desires, they f...

Sir Thomas Mitchell's Lecture at the School of Arts, Sydney. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 22 August 1855

Sir Thomas Mitchell's Lecture at the School of Arts. Sydney. (From the Empire.) The field over which the lecturer travelled was exceedingly wide, giving a kind of historical detail of the progress of the me chanical arts in this country, and furnishing numerous illustrations of the value of me chanical institutions. Avoiding, for the most part, abstract doctrins and expositions, Sir Thomas rendered most valuable aid to the purposesof the School of Arts by bis practical examples, himself being a thoroughly pract ical man, whose business lay more with the external developments of utility, than in the regions of pare thought and science. And yet, practical measures are always really based upon the abstract sciences, and must lead back to them, if they are not at first traced out from them. Even, therefore, to the culture of science and mental attainment, Sir Thomas contributed not a little by the inaugural address which he gave. And when we couple with this practical address the more l...

It appears he is a Roman by birth, aud a shoemaker by trade ; but from die money found upon him, his somewhat expensive costume, and his erratic habits in moving from place to place, it was clear that he had not supported him self by work, but that he had derived his means from other sources. The jury found him guilty at once, and the president condemned him to death, giving him three days to make any statements he thought proper. Piauori received his sentence with the ut most composure.
