Local and Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 5 September 1855

Local and Domestic Intelligence. A correspondence between Mr Clifton and the Sheriff, respecting the postponement of the Public Meeting from 29th ultimo to the 12th instant, has   been published. Mr Clifton maintains that such postponement should not have been permitted ex- cept at the written request of the same parties who signed the original requisition — and perhaps there was some informality ; at the same time we be- lieve that no difficulty would have been expe- rienced in obtaining the signatures of the indivi- duals at whose requisition the original meeting was convoked. For our own part we regret that any postponement should have taken place, con- ceiving that no benefit has been derived from the delay.       His Excellency the Governor has instructed the Resident Magistrate to repay the sum obtained from the master of the Rapid for pilot service at Port Gregory.     Mr Clifton has been requested ...

Government Tampering with the Public Press. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 12 September 1855

Government Tampering with the Public Press. A strange story has been brought to light in the course of the last week, strik ingly illustrative, if true, of the sagacity of the Foreign-office in its dealings with the press. Lord Pahnerston, it is said — and strong documentary evidence is pro duced in support of the assertion — in the Pnill*CO *'IT 4-liA TTflOl* IC^H Vllitnii +1-H-1 ^n~m—~Z^~.~ xsvua.uv VI.

The words italicized, Torm part of a letter said to be addressed by Mr. H. U. Addington, in the name of Lord Pahnerston, to the author of a little book named My Courtship and its Con sequences.

THE LAW. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 12 September 1855

THE LAW. As a happy illustration of the certainty, cheapness, and expedition of the English law in upholding those who are in the right, we hare received the following strange narr rative from an ^t^ppMdcoroagBgBdenfc who ' The most litigious fellow I ever knew was a Welshman, named Bones. He had got possession, by some means of a bit of waste ?ground behind a public-house in Hogwash street. Adjoining this land was a yard, belonging to the parish of St. Je remiah, which the parish trustees were fencing in with a walL Bones alleged that one corner of their wall was advanced about ten indies on his ground, and as they declined to remove it back, he kicked down the brickwork before the mortar was dry. The trustees having satisfied themselves that they were not only within their own boundary, but that they had left Bones some feet of the parish land to boot, built op the wall again. Bones kicked it down again. ' The trustees put it up a third time, under the protection of a policeman. T...

Facts in human Life. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 12 September 1855

Facts in human Life. The number ot languages spoken in the world amounts to 3,074. The inhabitants of the globe profess more than 1,000 different religions. The average of human life is about 33 years. One quarter die previous to the age of seven years ; one haif before reaching 17 ; and those who pass that age enjoy a felicity refused to one-half the human spe cies. Of every 1000 persons, only one reaches 100 years of age ; of every 100, only six reach the age ot 65 ; and not more than one in 500 lives to 80 years of age. There are on the earth 1,000,000,000 inhabitants, and of these 33,333,333 die evcrr year ; 91,924 every day ; 3730 every hour : and €0 every minute]; or one every second. These losses are about balanced by an equal number of births. The. married are longer lived than the single, and above all those who observe a sober and industrious con duct. Tall men live longer than jghort ones. Wo men have more chances of life uTtheir favour pre vious to being 50 years of age,...

To Florence Nightingale. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 12 September 1855

To Florence Nightingale. Lady ! in our England's story There are names we proudly f«ay — Names of women writ in licaven, With us still, and passed away ; But in all the shining record Which the angels love to read, Few can claim the earnest homage By our hearts to thee decreed. 3jady J when to weeping households Word of thy devotion came, High and lowfy called thee angel, Wives and mothers blessed thy name ; Where the rectory roses cluster,' Where the whitened cottage peers, In the old manorial mansion, Eyes were filled with tuankful tears. Lady ! when the wounded soldier Lifts his head and looks on thee, Hope will come and softly whisper He may yet re-cross the sea ; Yet return his mother's kisses, As she shudders at his scars, Yet behold a face still dearer Seen in dreams beneath the stars. Lady ! thou host left, for duty, All that gives to life its charm, And we pray that God may keep thee With thy sisters safe from harm. Ever shall thy name and story Cause the heart a blissful t...

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. MERCANTILE REPORT. Thursday evening, June 28. 1855. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 12 September 1855

SOUTH AUSTRAL IA. MERCANTILE REPORT. Thursday evening, June 28, 1855. There is no change 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 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, and Velo city — lie number on board approaching to 1,000 souls. Beyond these three vessels, the week has passed without any other extmcolonial 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. Many articles appear to be simultaneously scarce in the ot...

Correspondence. TO THE EDITOR OF " THE INQUIRER AND COMMERCIAL NEWS." [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 12 September 1855

Be£F-4s a general rule, we wish it to be understood that we do not identify ourselves with ihe opinion* or expressions of our correspondents. To the Editor or ' The Enquueek akd Commercial Newb.' SIR, — There are some statements made by a correspondent in the ' Perth Gazette' ot Friday last, which I cannot allow to go uneonteadicted, even at the risk of bringing down tie wrath of ihe dreadful ' Vigilans' upon me. He says ihe land held by large proprietors does not pay one shilling to support ihe Government which pro tects it Now, in the first place, I deny that the land or the proprietors have had any protection. I never see the face of a policeman, unless he comes with a summons, or to call for some tax or other, and we consider that we are now far worse off (as far as regards protection) than when we only had one policeman. Now will Mr. ' Vigi lant' tell me who supports and pays all the brandy-drinkers ; shepherds, carters, publicans, tradesmen, labourers, &c P Is it not t...

Van Diemen's Land. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 12 September 1855

Van Diemen's Land. A correspondent of the Lawnceston Examiner, 19th instant, says ' there have been divers meet ? w ings of the Executive Council lately — that body M is sworn to secrecy, but the subject has oozed out. Rumour has it that the matter of deliberation is the falling off of the fiscal revenue. It is even said that there has been a difference of opinion be tween the Governor and his Executive on the point. The former wishing at once to abate the additional per centage allowed by the legislature to salaries, but the members would not advise such a measure, -Govemer Young has offered to re duce bis salary one-half, until the revenue is in a more prosperous state, but then the usual hospit able dinners and balls at government house are to be dispensed with. His Excellency calculates the deficiency of revenue at £80,000 from the two sources, whereas the members of the Privy Coun cil say it will only amount to £30,000. The idea of taking the per centage from the poor cleiks is...

He got op, thinking some one was trying Jr to pick the lock of his room door, and in passing the window, which is close to the door, he saw a man kneeling on the window-sill outside, who on finding he was discovered, jumped down immediately into the area, about 6 feet below the window. Mr Monger rushed to the window and in vain attempted to open it, the fellows having thrust a wedge between ihe sashes, while he was thus occupied, the man scrambled np out of the area and ran towards the bush, narrowly escaping two bullets which Mr Mon -~ ger fired after him right through the window.
