TO THE EDITOR OF " THE INQUIRER AND COMMERCIAL NEWS." [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 29 August 1855

To mx Editor of ' The Inquirer and Commercial News.' SIR, — The letter which appeared in your jour nal of the 8th instant, addressed tc the Secretary of the York Agricultural Society, upon the use and properties of Guano, is certainly well-worthjT the attention of all who intend to make use of that valuable manure. And as our unknown frieud has kindly given some useful hints upon the subject, I hope that he will continue to com municate his valuable knowledge through your journal, for the information of those who are yet unacquainted with the properties and. utility of Guano as a manure. roughly explained to the public, may do a great amount of good hi the agricultural districts; where, in a very short time, there will not be found for the* large quantity of land being brought into cultivation, a sufficient supply of manure without the help of Guano — more partic ularly those numeroKs small plot.- of laid now in course of cultivation by the labouring men. to whom the Guano will be t...

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. MERCANTILE REPORT. Thursday evening. June 28. 1855. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 29 August 1855

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. MERCANTILE REPORT. Thursday evening. June 28. irss. There is no change to report in general trade since last week, and the arrival of later dates from Encr land by the Sea Park have failed to enliven our market for European imports. Indeed it is com plained 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, aad 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 die Havilah on Mouday last, after a fewdays' suspension of our usual regularity of communication. Many articles appear to be simultaneously scarce in tl.c ot...

[ADVERTISEMENT.] HoUmcaifs Pills a certain remedy for Indi gestion and Liver complaint. — Maria Armstrong, of Mount Barker, Adelaide, suffered more than most people from indigestion, accompanied by li ver complaint, several very clever medical men told her she was in a consumption, and her friends despaired of her ever recovering, as she Lad tried everything they thought likely to bemefit her, without success. At last she tried Holloway's Pills which quickly assimilated with the blood, removed the obnoxious matter, and thoroughly cleansed and renovated the system. The result is that she was perfectly cured, and now enjoys the best of health. These pills are also a certain cure for all diseases of the stomach and bowels.

gorlu (From our oicn Correspondent.) The bad state of the roads, and the increasing fre quency of robberies, have here been the topics of conversation during the past week. The former is an evil we can bear, as we know line weather cannot be very far distant; but the latter requires a greater amount of philosophy to put up with, as there is no telling when or where it may be stopped. On the night between Wednesday and Thursday, Mr. I-uuc»n's Store was attempted by some thief cutting a pane of glass out of the window. Fortu nately, young Duncan was sleeping in the place, and on giving the alarm, the ruffian or ruffians de camped. Between two o'clock, a-in., and daylight ou Thursday, Mr. Wade's Store was broken into, the burglar taking advantage of a newly built up window while the brick-work was soft. About 7s in copper money, some thread, and a few leather belts is the amount of loss, as far as can be ascer tained, the thief having etidently been in a hurry, and his object — money —...

In perusing the ' Perth Gazette' of the 17th inst., my attention was drawn to a letter of Mr. Hamersley's, of a purpose-like character, touching the rumour afloat of a Tax being laid on Land. If such a tax is really contemplated, it is indeed of paramount importance that so /wiinns so iiiiinsf,. so rashly imnrilitio. a measure should at once be met by the whole community as it deserves. There may be those who will tell you that the imposition of such a tux. will only affect the condition of one portion of the inhab itants, but 1 maintain that it is connected with the welfare of every individual in this territory.
