SOUTH AUSTRALIA. MERCANTILE REPORT. Thursday evening, June 28, 1855. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 22 August 1855
SOUTH AUSTRALIA. MERCANTILE REPORT. Thursday evening, June 28, 1855. There is no cliange to report in general trade since last week, and the arrival of later dates from Eng land by the Sea Park have failed to enliven our market for European imports. Indeed it is com nfai'nf*! of on all hands that the demand for all cur rent commodities never was duller in any former year, and the inactivity is more especially felt in, the sale of all articles of luxury. Another considerable accession to our population has been made this week by the arrival of the emi grant ships Taymouth Castle, Sea Park, and Velo city — the number on board approaching to 1,000 souls. Beyond these three vessels, the week has passed without any other extracolonial arrivals. Later intelligence from the neighbouring colonies was brought by the Bosphorus on Sunday, and the Havilah on Monday last, after a few days' suspension of our usual regularity of communication. Manr articles appear to be simultaneously scarce in th...

SCUTARI. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 22 August 1855
SCUTARI. Amid the clonds of grief and wrath, That o'er ttw heart of England bmoJ, One bright star holds its blessed path. Unswerving, unsubdued. A steady radiance, breathing balm To throbbing iiinii aud wan-i'rini? brain; Investing dentil with hallowed calm, Taking the stiug from pain. ThroujA miles of pallets, thickly laid Wiih sickness in ite foulest guise. And pain in i'onns to have dismayed, Man 'a science-hardened eyes. A woman, fi-arile, pale and tall. Upon her saintly work doth more; Fair, or not fair, Who knows? Uut aU Follow her tax with love. Lady — thy very name so sweet. Speaks of full sou-^s thro' darkness heard. And fancy fiiuieth likeness meet Between thce and the bird Whose music cheers the siloouiy wold. Am 3!iy low voice the anguish dim. That thro' these sad rooms lieth cold Oil brain, and heart, and limb. PCXCH.

THE ARMY BEFORE SEBASTOPOL. PARLIAMENTARY INQUIRY. (Continued.) FOURTH DAY, March 8. MAJOB-GEKEEAL BEVTUrcjr. The examination of this witness was resumed. The Commissarist officers attached to his brigade were very efficient men. The bread ibr the sol diers was of a dark colour but good. They had meat difficulty in getting an fora:re. in conse quence of the commissariat being very strict. He had once had an order returned to him because it was signed half-an-iuch too low ; but as he threat ened to have that commissary turned out of the service, such a thing never occurred again. The weight of the men's knapsack with great coat and blanket was 130 lbs. The only tilings inconve nient in the equipment of the Guards were the cap and the epaulette. The bearskin cap, how ever, was a much butter protection against ihe sun than the shako. The want of proper trans port was the chief cause of the suffering of the men from ihe deficiency of clothing. There was clo thing for the Guards on board...

Several persons were exa mined who could, it was supposed, give evidence as to the cause of his death ; but as there were no marks of violence, ihe inquest was adjourned Jill the 17th, to enable the Surgeon to make a post mortem examination of tiie body. It is supposed that Moss died from the effects of drunkenness and exposure to the cold during the night. - : -

EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE. [To the 9th of May.] The following is taken from the ' Mauri tius Commercial Gazette'' of 27th June: — A diabolical attempt was made ou the I9e of the Eraperor on the 28th nit. The Emperor, accom panied by two of his household in plain clothes, was takinsr a ride hi the avenue oi the Champs-Elvsces. and about to meet the Empress. Upon reaching the Barriere dc L'Etoile, a man, apparently about 36 years old, advanced from the crowd, aud putting his hand to his hat drew a pistol from his paletot and de liberatelj fired at the Emperor, who was in the act j of replying to what he believed to 'it^i-SicaiErfrGnr the assasin.

€oms$an&mtc. fj@§'As a general rule, we wish it to be understood that tee do not identify ourselves with ifie opinions To the Editor op ' Tire fc*QLTBEB .asd Commercial Mews.' SIR, I am not very foud of letter- writing, yet sometimes It is necessary, tliough unplexsant, to speak the truth, and it is the more necessary in the present instance, as the matter I am about to mention will, if persevered in, much disgust and greatly inconvenience myself and neighbours ; I allude to the erection oi' a bridge over the Avon, caUeo* the 'jSbrtiiam Bridge,' and situate about four miles below Kbrtham, in the vicinity of Ego line. Why this bridge is to be erected so lar from Jfortham it is quite impossible for me to tell, or why that particular spot is chosen.

Morrell and Chidlov.% where the straight line of road enters ...
Gas from the Blackboy. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 22 August 1855
Gas from the Blackboy. W Considering the information contained x§ the accompanying report to be valuable not alone to ourselves but to some of the neighbouring colonies, and in fact to any country where coal is not indigenous and the cost of transit of blackboy resin would not be too heavy, we readily give it inser tion. During a late visit to Fremantle we inspected the Gas apparatus at the establisb. mentof Messrs. Carters and Bartram. It is very simple and, from its appearance, we should say not very costly. The experiments had answered very well until the evening prior to our visit, upon which occasion the flame was of a bluish tinge, attributable, per haps, to the lime used in the purification of the gas being of exceptionable quality. It is with much regret we find there is every prospect of our losing an officer of Captain Wray's practical talent, as we feel assured it -will be difficult to replace him.

Quid verum atque decens, curo et rogo, et omnis in hoc sum WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 22, 1855. LAST week, while reviewing the question at issue between ourselves and the Parent state, a question of so momentous a nature as to engage the most serious attention of the Co- lonists, and induce them to convoke public assemblies for the purpose of enunciating with increased force their opinions npon the subject, we more especially confined our ob- servations to those points which have rela- tion to the criminal, and to the obligations of the Mother Country, reserving for the present occasion any remarks upon the pro- bable effect of the present policy of the Im- perial Government upon the prospects of this Colony. We have seen that the aim of the Mother Country was the amelioration of the convict, and, at the same time, our own benefit ; but there was a third party equally concerned in the transaction, and more than equally in the result, and this third party was Western Anstralia.

SIXTH DAY— March lOtk. HIS K. H. THE DUKE OF CAMBBIDGB. A In reply to questions put by tbe *^'»*rr man his royal highness said, I joined my di-, vision of the Guards on the 13th of May, at Scratari. I found my men in perfectly good order there. They were encamped and well supplied with food. The commissariat operations, however, even at Scutari, were not so satifactory as one could hare wished. There was a want of forage, and there was but one place of issue for forage for the whole of the troops during die tame they were at Scutari, and an officer had fre quently to wait all day before he could be supplied. We embarked for Varna on die 13th June, and we all went there in steam ers, except die artillery, which went in safl iuS iranspons. we were about 12 hours on die voyage. We encamped at Varna, I cannot say diat at any time die troops wanted provisions there, bnt die supply was not at all times such as we could have wish .ed. Forage was often very short.

THE ARMY BEFORE SEBASTOPOL. PARLIAMENTARY INQUIRY. (Continued.) FIFTH DAY.— March 9. ME. C1AY. Witness was the owner of three vessels — the Emperor, the Cottingham, and the Al ster — taken up as transports by the Go vernment. The Emperor wa~ chartered in March, 1854, to convey Lord Raglan's staff and horses to the east. The ship was fitted for the horses at Woolwich. The captain of the Emperor remonstrated against the kind of fittings erected. He was wellac quainted with the mode in which ships were fitted for the exportation of horses from Hull; there is an extensive exportation of horses from that port. In consequence of the remonstrances they were permitted to fit up the ship differently from the Govern ment plan. Witness himself arrived at Ba laclava in December last; he found both the transports Emperor and Cottingham there, lie entirely confirmed all that the previous witnesses had stated as to the condition uf the town of Balaclava, as also that of tin men and horses. AH was ...
