[Advertisement.] HoUoways Ointment and Pills lave effected another wonderful cure of sore legs. — Charles Tho mas, Dunedin, New Zealand, was a Hifferer for 28 years from sore legs, so bad at time$ that human nature could scarcely bear it, as they were covered with wounds^and proud flesh. Hu friends had given up all hopes of bis ever regaining the use of his limbs, as he was in so pitiable a state, the more especially so 'as the doctors told him it was constitutional. ^ Having heard from several people the good effects 'Holloway's Pills and Ointment had produced in cases of this nature, he made op his mind to give them a fair trial ; after using them for a few weeks, he felt much better, and by continuing them for two months and a half he was perfectly cured, after being 2S years a cripple, and considered beyond human aid.

To THE EDITOR OF "THE INQUIRER AND COMMERCIAL NEWS." [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 3 October 1855

TO THE £oROH OF 'THE SfittaBEB&XD Sib, — It surprises me much to see h.w great a number of men-servants the country sellers board in their kitchens. I cannot think that it pays them, indeed, I am certain it does not, for it must require the whole time of one active serfaut to cook for these people. The custom ha? long been abandoned in England, save among a lew modern antiques. There was in old times, andjperhaps oc casionally now, a custom of feeding the men and maidens of the farm with, the master aid mistress and family of the house, but I am no aivocate for such equality, and the servants themsrives do not like it. It is a system, however, whfch prevents waste on the part of the servants. Sabers, listen tome. Put your men on board wagisMpd .supply - them with, the raw materials, and yofe vill find that not one half of your present annnfel supply of flour, meat and groceries will be t«^, your dogs will starve, and your pigtnbs wflHcarcely be greasy.

Recollections of Inkermann. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 3 October 1855

Recollections of Iiikermann. In- splendour shone the moonlit ray, The stars their lucid pow'rs display, O'er that field of bloody strife ! 'Tis night; and dreary solitude around Does reign, where gory corpses strew the ground, Sad remnants of departed life ! Those gallant bands who nobly sought The battle-field, for honour fought, E'en with latest breath, To curb the proud despot did display Unrivatt'd courage— Where now are they ? Alas, they sleep in death ! There, along tiie field lay gLmwn Steeds and riders all o'erthVown ; A ghastly pile are they ! There, with wild and piercing sound, Screaming vultures hover round, To feast upon their prey I There the undaunted Britons lie, -^ Who scorned from t&eifTaes to fly, But bravely they them met; Tho' fearful odd&'didihem oppose, Their cry, when charging on tiie foes, Was ' Victory or Deatii !' When other memories shall fade Of courage, valour, oncediquayed, British heartaudll proudly scan The ever-imperisnable tale Of t...

Paris, 27th June. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 3 October 1855

\Fron the Calcutta Englishman.] Paris, 27th June. On the ISth June, an attack was made on the Redan battery and Malakoff tower, which ended in a complete repulse and a very heavy loss on the part of the allies. No official details regarding the affair have been published, the reason alledged being, that the telegraphic communication between Bala klava and Varna was interrupted, but not withstanding this assertion, some particulars have oozed out, from which it appears that the result of the operations on the ISth was most disastrous to us. In fact, our losses in killed, wounded and prisoners, is said to amount to 10,000men,of whom 3000 areEng lish including about.60 officers. The nature of the combat is bat imperfectly known. It is, however, whispered that nothing but a speedy retreat un der the effect of a combined fire from the forts, as well as from the harbour, could have saved the allied army, the Eussiems having undermined the ground, and prepared to blow up themselves as well...

Bombay, July 21. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 3 October 1855

(From India Paper of July 24.) Bombay, July 21. Telegraphic despatches from Pelissier, dated 20th June, say — Armistice at 4 on the 19th to bury the dead ? The besieged closely hemmed in near central ravine, the allies commanding half the faubourgs and corner of southern harbour. We are con structing batteries of heavy guns on the the works taken on the 7th, which directly menaces the great Malakhoff. A force of 30,000 men, Bosquet, Omar Pasha, and the Piedmontese Commander left for Baktslii Serai — the forces have passed Mac Kenzies farm, by the last accounts. Before tne 'Bengal' left Suez, a message was re ceived from Mr. Betas at Cairo, that the Malakoff had been taken — it requires confirmation. The position of tint besieged in Sebastopol is be come more serious, and panic seems to reign witliiu. The check, they received on the 18th June, has but increased the ardor of the allies. xiie principal outworKs ot tue enemy are mere ad vanced posts. The French hold the fort -which comm...

Why should a lady who is desirous of paying her respects to the Queen of England be exposed to as much physical suffering in her efforts to carry diis loyal purpose into effect as an apprentice boy of the olden time who was anxious to witness a great performance of John Philip Kemblc or Edmund Kcan ? Most of us can remember something of these dramatic struggles, although the tradition has been sadly maimed in the lifetime of the present generation. You took your station at the back of a crowd, which gradually increased from behind un til you. were in die middle of the expectant turmoil. There were gibes, and jeers, and screams of fainting women, even before the 'doors were opened,' and the actual conflict commenced ; but ti»en what a scene ! The pressure which was so grcjit that your arms were glued to your side ; or, if raided aloft at the moment die struggle began, in that position they must remain until die goal was gained. You we...
