[Fbom; the Home .News, Juse 1L] Important intelligence from the Crimea, has reached us since the date of our lasL Before we proceed to the detail, we may observe that within the last few days information arrived that an ac cident had happened to the electric telegraph be tween the Crimea and Varna, which for the mo ment suspended that means of rapid communi cation which daily becomes more necessary and interesting ; but we are happy to say that the da mage was immediately repaired, and the commu nication resumed as usual. j The appointment of General Pelissicr to the command of the French army has already justified the anticipations we formed of the energy and decision he would infuse into the operations of the { siege. The first movement which appears to have taken place under bis immediate auspices was the determination to despatch a new expedition to Kertch, under Admirals Lyons and Bruat. This expedition was resolved upon on the 20th ultimo. But it is proper to observe that the ...

He, however, agreed that the subject was oae pf great importance to the colonists, and that the sooner die differences raised were eet at rest the better. Although Hi« Excellency declined to give an opinion upon the matter, he read to the deputa tion extracts from despatches bearing or en the points at issue, and which themselves became the objtcts of discus sion.

No title London, June 11, 1855. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 19 September 1855

[From our own Correspondent 1 London, June 11, 1855. ; When my last epistle was penned,, we in . London had no idea how brilliantly our sol diers and sailors in the Crimea were push ing forward their arms. At that date sac cess on an extensive scale had crowned our efforts, and the enemy were in full retreat from some of tiieir most important points of defence along the sea board of Ihe Crimean waters. The Government telegraph from the al lied camp to Varna gives us intelligence within a few hours by way of- Bucharest and Vienna, so that we are happily closely informed of all that occurs worth relating. The installation of General Pelissier as Commandor-in-chief of the French army, has been quickly followed up by energetic action, in marked contrast with former di latorinese. On die nights of the 22nd and 23rd ultimo, two most furious and bloody encounters took place between the French and Russians for the possession of some outworks thrown up by the latter. Many thousands of the en...

Ufisaitaiuums. Visit to a Shaker's Meeting-house. — At an opposite door there entered in single file, upwards of forty pallid ladies, clad in shrouds. The sadden advent of so many spectres struck a honible chill to my heart. They walked gravely on tiptoe to a row of pegs upon the wall, hune up their bonnets _ - and mantles, and arranged themselves upon some benches at the other end of the build ing. They then folded^their hands on their laps (every Shakeress had a clean towel de pending over her right arm), cast their eyes to the ground, and sat mute and motionless as statues. The majority of them were elderly and middle-aged women ; bat I saw six or eight very handsome young girls among the number, one of whom, having ac cidentally caught my eye, started as though somebody had stubbed her, and fixed her glance once more on the ground. Soon afterwards the male Shakers made their en tree, and hanging their hats and coats on an unoccupied party of pegs, took their seats ?(in their shi...

TASMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 26 September 1855

TASMANIA Abont two years ago, Sir W. Denison threw out a suggestion for tbe consideration of the Sheriff, ad vising the abolition of criminal courts in the interior ; urging, as a reason, a fact well known and easily ex plained, that criminal offences bad for some time previously been at a minimum (our choice spirits were then at die gold diggings). In his remarks upon tbe document, the Sheriff stated his opiuiou that in a few months full employment would be af forded to the whole judicial establishment of tbe island. This remark, is now being verified, crime has for some time past been on the increase ; our present gaol delivery is, as I have said, unusually large ; and the major number of offences are of a capital description. -The reflecting portion of our community see in this circumstance ample reason to justify serious apprehensions. It is probable the outrages upon life and property already committed are but a prelude to others of a deeper dye. There are hundreds of our popul...

In such an event mere would have been nothing remarkable, had nut these negotiations been conducted on fixed principles agreed upon by the Powers who took part iu them.
