Miscellaneous. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 17 October 1855

? Iftiscctlancous. Cinderella's Slipper. — In connection ?with this subject (furs), there is a story which deserves mention, however much it may be scouted by the lovers of fairy tales and the romance of childhood. We our selves would wish to disbelieve it, but it reads, nevertheless, very like the fact. In the tale of Cinderella^ the maiden is re presented as putting on a pair of glass slip pers, in which to dance at a ball; indeed, the main interest of the story hinges at length in these same slippers of glass. To spoil all this pretty romance, the antiqua rian steps in with his musfy parchments and assures us that we are quite mistaken in our version of the story, which is of French origin, and that the blunder of an ignorant translator has caused the error. The slippers were really of sable fur, and the French for sable being vair was mista ken for verre — glass, andhence the blunder. The same learned authority tells us that whilst the slippers of glass had no mean ing, their ha...

Loss of the Emigrant Ship "John." [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 17 October 1855

Loss of the Emigrant Ship 'John' There have been two inquiries into the loss of the emigrant ship ** John,' which was wrecked on Thurs day week upon the Manacle Bocks. The one took place before the coroner immediately upon the loss of the vessel, and resulted in tbe commital of the master for manslaughter. A second inquiry, con ducted in a far more stringent manner, was set on foot last week before Captain Robertson, who was despatched from the Board of Trade for the purpose of conducting the investigation under tbe new act. Bv this measure the owners of passenger-ships are pfaced very forcibly under the control of the Board of Trade, The act. which is known as the new ' Merchant Shipping Act,' only came into operation on the 1st May, and, curiously enough, this case of the ' John' just happened within the limits of time which brought it under the provisions of the new bill. By one particular section of the bill the liabi lity of the owners in cases such as that of the ' John,' is s...

India and the Crimean War. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 17 October 1855

India and the Crimean War. A reasonable question at present asked is how fkr so gigantic a portion of our East ern Empire as India may be made to con tribute to the succesful issue -of the War? It is true that our Indian territories are vast enough to require all the troops we have there, and that tbe armies of the three Pre sidencies, though they seem so large collec tively, are in fact not dispropordoned to tha duties they fulfil. Still it would be strange if out of so immense an armoury we could not select one weapon to suit us in the pre present emergency. We must, indeed, be guided in the choice of those possessing local experience. Having a noble army, With all munitions of war in Hindoostan, let us not/ while we &eek to make these available for ? our home exigencies, disturb a system which has thus far yielded such successful results. Let us remember that in an em pire like India, where, as a great authority has said, ' we are always in danger, and it is impossible to...

PERSIA [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 17 October 1855

PERSIA (From the Calcutta Morning Chronicle, June 9.) There is no doubt— adverting to these hostile ru mours from the direction of Persia and the Persian Gulf— tbere is no donbt, we say, that nothing would gratify Russia more than to see as send, and consider ourselves obliged to send, a costly expidition to these shores; and an expedition, too, which wonld, in all probability, be followed by no positive result, and wonld be attended with an amount of expence that ought to be well considered before it is irrevocably incurred. We are not inclined to look favorably on tiits expedition until we can see some better reasons for sending it to die shores of Persia than have everyet been given, and some more ge*d likely to result from it than has hitherto been shown or argued. Let us see the reasons Oiat are said to create the necessity for despatching this expedition from India to the Persian Gnlf. In the first place we are told that Persia is intriguing with Russia, and so subjected to Bt...

While the Imperial Government complain that the Convict Establishment in this Co lony has been a heavy incumbrance, and a source of considerable expenditure, the set tlers of the province declare that they have derived no profit whatever from its presence, but the contrary. We believe that both par ties are nearly right, that the expenditure has been very great, and that the returns in any shape whatever have been, if any, ex cessively trifling. The cause of much of this double dissatis faction must be laid at the door of local mis management : not the whole, for, as regards the Home Government, we have previously seen that the establishment of a new penal settlement must necessarily involve consi derable pecuniary outlay under the most fa vourable circumstances, and that to maintain such an establishment in full efficiency would require large annual d...
