The Inquirer & Commercial News. Quid verum atque decens, curo et rogo, et omnis in hoc sum WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 29, 1855. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 29 August 1855

The Inquirer & Commercial News. Quid verum atque decens, curo et rogo, et omnis in hoc sum WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 29, 1855. Every one feels an interest in the state of the labour market, for we are all aware of its powerful influence upon the prosperity of the Colony. The slightest intimation of a pro- bable insufficient supply of labour naturally creates the greatest alarm, and the evidence of such a state of feeling be- comes almost immediately apparent. Com- plaints and remonstrances follow in quick succession, and the bitterness of the one, and the urgency of the other, indicate the importance which the settlers attach to the matter at issue. Free emigration to this Colony having re- ceived a check, in consequence of the repre- sentations of the local authorities, the state of feeling described above, immediately en- sued ; and the people, with their organ the press, exclaimed vehemently against this im- politic proceeding. The inhabitants of one district appealed directly to...

Local and Rometic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 29 August 1855

, ^tal mid i0mesti^tttel%e«^L So many reports have been in circulation with reference to the Amateur Theatricals, and so many plans have been proposed, adopted, and then aban doned, that we are almost afraid to state what plays will he produced, where they will be per formed, or when the theatricals will take place. The Amateur corps have certainly been placed to a great disadvantage ; in the first place from the absence of a building capable of being conver ted into a temporary theatre ; secondly, from not possessing a supply of good acting plays, and thirdly, from the departure of some of their best performers. It will be remembered that formerly, tiiey had the use of the only building which could be said to belong to the public, and which had previously been on all occasions at their ser vice for general purposes. Meetings, balls, lec tures, concerts, and preachings have all at different periods been held, delivered or performed in the building at present used as a Court Hquse. I...

DESPATCH FROM THE GREAT PLENIPOTENTIARY. TO THE RIGHT HON THE VISCOUNT PALMERSTON. Vienna. March 28. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 5 September 1855

DESPATCH FROM THE GREAT PLENIPOTENTIARY. TO THE EIGHT HOK THE VISCOUNT PALMEESTOK Vienna. JMJarch 28. My dear I/Obd, — I write in an extreme state of agitation, of which uncertainty forms the largest ele ment. I am not sure whether, to use the vulgar phrase, I have been and done it, or whether I have nobly asserted my reputation as a true British statesman. Anyhow, I have shut up die Conference for die time being. I told you that, for reasons, I had a good deal given up the management of the discussions to Baron Bourqueney, partly because I fancied that the others understood his French better than mine, and partly because I wished to come in with effect, and with a kind of bang, when die knot should be worthy of the god. — (Hor. Art. Poet) Baron Bourqueney completely understood my views, and it is due to him that I should say that he acquitted himself widi great ability, suavity, and caution. He acquiesced, widi a frankness which evinced great tact, in all die smaller propositions p...

A French opinion of the English army and government. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 5 September 1855

A French opinion of the English army and government. The Spectator gives a letter from a French Gentleman, not only 4iBtinguished both in statesmanship and literature, but peculiarly versed in the English and Anglo-Saxon con stitutional politics. We make die following extract : — ? - ' 'My mind Is continually dwelling with painful interest on the situation of your brave army ; an interest inspired by admiration for Ihe army itself, as well as by die concern which I feel for the honour and credit of your institutions, now in some danger of falling into disrepute through incapable and in experienced administration. ? If yon do not succeed in repairing the mischief, and that quickly, (which indeed seems to me nest to impossible,) Eng land and her government will assuredly come out of this struggle somewhat discredited, whatever may be the ultimate results of the war and the heroic achievements of your soldiers. I have a difficulty in believing that this will not have a considerable in ...

WATERLOO AVENGED. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 5 September 1855

WATERLOO AVENGED. (From Punch.) ' General Canrobert has placed at the disposal of Lord Kaglan 10,000 capotes for the use of the Eng lish army in the Crimea. 10,000 British soldiers now wear the French uniform.' — Correspondence from the camp. Long we had owned them noble foes. Late we have owned them friends. Knit by the brunt of equal blows, Joint perils, common ends. At Alma's field of desperate fight, On Inkcrmann's blood-sodden height, Twin laurels Victory blends — No name so high on either side, But France and England share the pride. And if at length each English heart With sudden shame is wrong — If to each cheek the blushes start, The curse to every tongue — * Tis not to France we owe the shame, The name we curse is no French name — By our own sting we're stung. Our own hands forged the untrusry sword, That now in peril fails its lord. To bless French aid what man was slow. In counsel or in fray ? Debts of the sword brave souls may owe, For such debts they can pay. But oh, t...

Cape of Good Hone. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 5 September 1855

Cape of Good Hone The following strange piece of information is fur nished to the Albert Times by its correspondent in the Free State : — *? A farmer from the Winbnrg district, who had occasion to attend the late meeting ui uic * uutsraao, ncia at rsioemiontein, brought with him several Boshman children for, sale, and which he disposed of at very high prices for cash! — Boys, 10 years old, fids. 180; girls, ditto, 110.' A large proportion of the advertising space of the Cape journals is taken up with announcements of copper and gold mining companies, so that South Africa is at length fairly before the world as a mineral country. The question of the separation of the Eastern and Western Provinces is stiil one of absorbing interest. It is rumoured, says the Graham's Town Journal, though on no certain authority, that Sir George Grey has provisionally ai ranged with the Kaffir Chief Sandilli to pay him an annual allowance of £2,000 a year, in consideration of his guarantee for the preve...

These reme dies will cure the most deeply seated old wounds and ulcers, even of twenty years standing.

On Guano. ITS ORIGIN AND HISTORY. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 5 September 1855

(Sit (Suamr, ITS ORIGIN AND HISTORY. ' Qtu turn, est hodie eras minus aphis erif'—MarL The man will surely fail who dares delay. And lose to-morrow that has lost to-day. At the present moment, when the farmers of Western Australia may naturally feel much in terest in the development of the practical use of a fertilizer of so much importance as Guano, whe ther is regards its economy of expense, time, and labour, or its beneficial results — of which, if it be properly applied, I have no doubt — it may not be uninteresting to present your readers with a few brief remarks on its origin and history. Having explained in my last paper [See I7ie Inquirer and Commercial jVett%of 8th August, 1855,] the principles to be kept in view, and the practice to be adopted, sufficient time will elapse (before any personal result can be obtained) to allow of sufficient spare time to devote an hour to such an attainment. As my remarks will be extracted chiefly from others, I desire, at the outset, to lay...

The crops look very well, and the farmers are sanguine in their expectations of aa abundant harvest. The oldest setders say they never remember to have seeu a season in which scab was so prevalent among sheep. Many of them will have to shear their flocks before die usual time to save their wool ; most of diem have to dip their sheep, while scarcely one in ten is not obliged to dress them. A great deal of interest is felt and expressed re lative to the result of the coming meeting in Perth, as every settler feels he has a greater or less stake involved in the question. The following resolutions were adopted at a recent meeting at Bunbury : — That -when the inhabitants of this colony agreed to receive Convicts of Great Britain, it was upon the distinct understanding that the whole expense con sequent thereon, direct and indirect, should be borne by the Imperial Government ; and t...

I Sttrfcete. ^ SOUTH AUSTRALIA. \ MERCANTILE REPORT. ?? Thursday evenine. June 28, 1855. Th*re is no change to report in general trade since last wieek, and the arrival of later dates from Eng land b)r 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 coiamodities never was duller in any former year, anil the inactivity is more especially felt in the sale of alf 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 Bosphoros on Sunday, and the Havilah on Monday last, after a fewdayu' suspension of our usual regularity of communication.
