Lord Dundonald's "Devastator" in Basque Roads. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 26 September 1855

Lord Dandonald's 'Devastator' in Basque Roads. (From die Daily News.) Lord Cochrane caused about 1,500 barrels of gun powder to be started into puncheons, which were placed end upward. Upon the tops -of these were placed between 300 and 400 ehells, charged, with fuses; and again among and upon these were be tween 3.000 and 3,000 hand grenades. The. pun cbeoss were fastened to each other by cables wound round them, and lammed together with wedges. and moistened sand was rammed down between these casks, so as to render die whole, from stem to stern as solid as possible that the resistance might render the explosion more violent. In this immense instrument of destruction Lord Cochrane committed himself, with only one lieutenant and f out seamen; and after (he boom was broken, bis lordship pro ceeded with this explosion ship towards the e nemy's line. Let it be recollected that at this mo ment die batteries on shore were provided with fur naces to fire red-hot shot, and then bis lordshi...

Supplies of Food. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 26 September 1855

Supplies of Food. (Irrom tbe Axeus.) Por some time past tbe anxious attention, not merely of mercantile men, but of the public gene rally, in the Australian colonies, bas been directed to the question or a supply of food for the popu lation. It is a remarkable fact that, during die whole period of the commercial depression caused by over importations the supplies of sound and prime pro visions, ia Melbourne at least, were sot proportion ally over abundant. Sound flour especially cuuld always be sold at a pront; and now after tne reaction b-is commenced, not only have provisions been tbe first articles to rise in value, but most descriptions h.tve become exceedingly scarce and, at ibis moment some very well -informed persons dread that Sour, in particular, the very staff of life — will advance to a famine irice. On former occasions, we have expressed onr opi nion as to the causes of these deficient supplies and we shall not at present revert to this tupic; but a few words as to tbe p...

JSow, my lords, X am a Gower, and I believe that I am the only one of that ' family who holds any official appointment whatever. 1 am also a Caveudish ; but I think that the noble duke at the head of that family has not shown him self slow to encourage genius whereever he has found it, even among the lower classes.

The Late Czar Nicholas. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 26 September 1855

The Late Czar Nicholas. Leattsg speculation on the political consequences of the removal of the Emperor Nicholas to future op portunities, we subjoin a memorandum of the princi pal dates in his long and eventful career. Nicholas t. aulowitcb was born at St. Petersburgh, on tbe 7th July 1796. He was the third son of die Em peror Paul, by a second wife, Mary of Wuttemberg. In his early life he displayed no striking abilities ; and, except when absorbed in military studies, his great passion, he trifled away the hours. In 1814 he visited the battle-fields of the Continent, aud came to England in 1816. In 1817 he married- the sister of tbe present King of Prussia ; and Alexander, his eldest son, was born in the following year. In 1825, his brother the Emperor Alexander died at Tagan rog. The next heir was Constantine, but be had al ready, it was understood, renounced the throne, in consequence of a disqualifying marriage with a Po lish lady, whom he would not repudiate ; and Nicho las t...

Indian Intelligence. THE SANTAL INSURRECTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 26 September 1855

Indian Intelligence. THE SANTAL INSURRECTION. TFrom the Friend of India, July 19.] In a period of the most profound tranquility an extensive and ferocious insurrection has broken out in the heart of Bengal, and ex press trains are busy in' conveying troops in hot haste to a part of the country where peace appeared to be most certain. The tribes in the Rajmahl hills have suddenly descended by tens of thousands into the plains, carrying desolation in every direction. The Santals are the chief leaders in this in surrectionary movement, and of all the tribes in those hills the Santals have experienced the greatest blessings from the British Go vernment, and appeared to be the most satis fied with their condition. They are not the original inhabitants of the district which is said to be the seat of the present outbreak. In the bosom of the Bajmal hills, there is a tract of fertile land, sailed the Diamtn-i-kohj consisting of a succession of rich valleys, which the inhabitants reduced by ...

IATBST STSWS FROM THE CRIMEA. [Frost the Timet, June 11.] The last telegraphic intelligence from the Crimea realises the sanguine expectations which we had en tertained of the victorious progress of the allied forces both in the Sea of Azutf and in the lines be fore SebastopoL On the 3rd, 5th, and 6th of June the squadron commanded by Captain Lyons, of the steam corvette Miranda, and by Captain de Sedaiges, of the French navy, directed its formidable opera tions, with complete success, against Taganrog, Ma rionpol, and Gheisk, in the Sea of Azoff. The two former places ore well known as the chief outports of that part --f Russia; the latter is a smaller port on the opposite shore of the Gulf of Taganrog, lying to the south-west of the old Turkish fort of Azoff. At all these places immense supplies of stores and provisions belonging to the enemy appear to have been found and destroyed, and we are satisfied (hat no military operation could have produced a greater eflect on the Russian...

Jfoorf and genttsii^ Jntefigcux^. \ His Excellency the Governor, accompanied by   the Colonial Secretary, left Perth on Wednesday ^| afternoon, en route for Rottnest, from which Island he returned on Friday. It is rumoured   that Rottnest is again to be converted into a   receptacle for native prisoners, as the cost of main-   tenance and supervision it is considered will then   be less than at present, and the labour of the   prisoners become available for the improvement of the Government Farm on the island. Whether the amount thus saved is more than equal to the value of the services of the prisoners when   employed on the roads of the colony is another affair.     The chances of escape are less at Rottnest than - on the mainland, and therefore the expenses con- - sequent upon their recapture will be saved by their removal to the former place ; so, perhaps, on -the...

The Inquirer & Commercial News. Quid verum at que decens, curo et rogo, et omnis in hoc sum WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 26, 1855. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 26 September 1855

The Inquirer & Commercial News. Quid verum atgue decents curo et rogo, et omnis in hoc sum WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 26, 1855. The extracts from the Despatches published in to-day's issue bear upon several questions of deep Colonial interest, especially those relative to Police. Perhaps it would be difficult to find a recorded example of bare faced breach of faith equal to that exhibited in the despatches treating upon the relative proportions of expenditure to be borne by the Imperial Government and the Colony on account of this service. In the despatch of 12th Dec., 1853, it is as clearly stated as possible that the share of expenditure chargeable upon the Imperial Treasury, for police purposes, would be two thirds of the whole cost, and, unless words are arbitrarily determined to possess a mean-   ing other than their accustomed signifi- cation, no other interpretation can be given to the language employed in this despatch, save that, two-thirds of the charges inc...

One hundred and fifty cases containing sculptures, inscribed tab lets, terra-cotta cylinders, and a very large collection of small objects of Assyrian Art, were recently un packed at the Museum. One pcfect obelisk, and the fragment of a second, are die only object-: of this collection which have been yet exhibited to tLc public in the Assyrian Gallery, but die inscribed tablets, which amount in number we believe, to at least 10 000, die two fine cylinders from Kilch Shergat, and all the smaller relics — which, for better security are deposited in close cases — can be ex...
