d£mri!sgondem:e. Jfc§~As a general rule, we wish it to be understood that tee do not identify ourselves with the opinions or expressions oj our correspondents. To the Editoe of ' The Ixqcieer and Commehciai. News.' SIK, — What has been done with the money sub scribed for the Patriotic Fnnd? How much was subscribed? Who seat it home? To whom? When? And did any one in transmitting it express, in the name of our small community, any feeling of sym pathy with the mother country in her present agony. Other colonies have raised similar funds, and ineir efforts have met with acknowledgments of gratitude from the English press. Such an acknowledgment will be at least gratifving to a WESTERN AUSTRALIAN. York, September 1, 1855.

Himtoirjj £a\it6 Segort. Bridged Hurford, P. Dixoii and Enoch Dodd, who were remanded from the 19th of August, were again placed at the bar ou the 24th, charged with forging a Will. From the evidence of numerous witnesses who.werein attendance, it appeared that Hurford and his wife lived to gether very unhappily, and that he had always expressed a determination to leave his wife none of his property, and on the Will being shewn to some of the witnesses who had known the deceased for a number of years, they expressed themselves very confidently that it was a forgery. The evidence' of P. Dixon implicated the son of Mrs Hur ford, Thomas Larkius. who was also placed at the bar. The whole of the prisoners were fully committed for trial at the next Quarter Sessions. Dixon and Mrs Hurford ultimately admitted the Will to be a forgerv. Bridget 'Hurford and Enoch Dodd were then charged with the murder of John Hurford of Fishleigh.

The horses were not sheltered un til the middle of December, when witness had the ground excavated and covered with planks. Before the horses were hutted nearly 70 died, but afterwards not one died.

Australian Gardening. CARROTS AND PARSNIPS. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 5 September 1855

Australian Gardening:. CARROTS JCSD FARSNU'S. Of all ihe esculeDt vegetables there are none which pay the cultivator in this colony better than tbe roots above-mentioned whether grown for human con sumption or as fodder and winter feed for cows and horses. Carrots thrive best in a rich, sandy soil — soil which is at least two feet deep, and which has had a few years' course of regular cropping and manuring. Shallow soil, or soil which has not been trenched, will not suit them, nor will they yield well on new or maiden soil, nor where it hns lieen newly manured ; as the plant, instead of being long, straight, and tapering, will be stunted and forked, and run very much to leaf. If manure must be added, by the pre vious crop having exhausted the ground too much, compost or well -rotted old dung should be laid on, but not newly made, and fresh manure. The ground, without being perfectly dry, must be well drained — a cold, damp soil is ruinous to the carrot. In this colony, I have found ...

Quid verum atgue deceits, euro et rogo, et omnis in hoc sum WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 5, 1855. The discussion of a probable Land Tax has engaged the public attention during the past few weeks, and the columns of the local journals have been employed by landholders and non-landholders to protest 'against the the measure, or to advocate its adoption. So eager have been the disputants, that they appear to have forgotten to ask the questions whether the Colony* is really to be subjected to additional taxation ? or whether, indeed, it ought to be liable to increased burdens until the question at issue between the Mo ther country and itself is satisfactorily solved ? We are happy to believe that there is no probability of the immediate imposition of any additional tax, although it has been pro posed that should such a necessity arise, to meet the emergency by a tax upon land. Our views upon the subject of Colonial tax ation, under existing circumstances, have been so often stated, that it will...

Use of Chloroform in Cases of Wounds and Amputations. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 5 September 1855

Use of Chloroform in Cases of Wounds and Amputations. Professor Simpson has addressed a letter to Colo nel Elers Napier on the nse of chloroform in ampu tations. He says — 'In dicse^-as in other severe surgical operations, it both. 1 sincerely believe, saves pain and saves life. It both preserves the pa tient from present suffering!;, and, to some extent, from future dangers. For, undoubtedly, die average mortality resulting from die greater'operations of surgery is decidedly less when die unfortunate sub jects of diem are submitted to die necessary infliction of the surgeon's knife in an anaeesthetic state than when they are obliged to pass through the same trying ordeal in a waking and conscious condition.' He then gives some statistics on die subject; one table showing diat, after amputation of die diigb. without chloroform, die per centage of deaths in several hospitals ranged from 36 to 62 in 100, whereas, widi chloroform die percentage was only 25 in 100.
