England's New Mission. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 17 October 1855

England's New Mission {From the Daily News.) England has a new mission to fulfil. She is called on to teach the nations that military power can be united with civil liberty. For the benefit of ail po sterity she must prove that civilisation is capable of defending itself, and of being a noble ally in vindi cating the outraged rights of others. She is now threatened by the Ti7iies with the 'iaie of the Dut.h and the Venetians,' toid tiiat -shcmiasfc to tbe more spectator of a neighbour's quarrels, and hold her own lights and liberties of saflerance, unless she establish a despotism like that of ike neighbouring powers. A commercial nation is described as bejow a military despotism in security. Our mercantile habits and constitutional ideas are said to hinder ns in the prosecution of war. ?* War,' it is oracularly said, 'is war, and canaot be made anything else than war.' ' It will not be reduced to a system of ledgers, memoranda, desks, stores, uniforms, or other dead or dormant affa...

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

Colonial Agriculture. (From ike Belfast Gazette.) No sophist can deny the importance and advan tage it would be to farmers to obtain the most suitable iinplemeust for breaking up rough land; which, to a certain extent, may be considered the basis of their future prosperity, by having that operation most ef fectively performed in the first instance, as subse quent tillage becomes easier, and consequently less expensive, as well as producing better crops. For want of due attention to this most important point other implements, tending to die economv of labour become almost valueless in these colonies, as with land studded with stumps, roots, stones, and other iincpaiuients, their failure is too often attributed to defective mechanism, instead of to the negligent far mer. There is certainly nothing to prevent the fai nter from collecting die torn-up roots which lie upon die surface, also the large stoues, the latter frequent ly existing in sufficient quantity to enable him to erect sub...

Guba. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 24 October 1855

Cuba. \_tiif a correspondent to an American paper'] We have had another importation of Asia atic colonists, under the voluntarv labour sys tem, provided for Cuba by England and France; by the British ship fioxburg Castle, consigned by Messrs. Pereda, Machado, and Co., in number 576. The number intro duced under this enterprise amounts to 971, and I understand that several other vessels were expected. ' I believe it is known that this volun tary emigration is brought about by the same duplicity, frai-d and violence as that for years practised upon the coast of Africa, and that the condition of the emigrant here is that of a sold servant, who can be retained in bonds as long as tbe buyers care to retain him, or he can be made profitable to his master.

In the same period the imports and exports both have been more than doubled. The revenues of the colonial treasnryg have been progressively raised daring the last six years from £2IL#37 to £281,164.

TASMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 24 October 1855

TASMANIA. There is little news of importance to commu nicate. Various speculations are rife as to when the new Constitution BUI, which arrived by the Oliver Lang, will come into operation. The ge neral opinion, however, seems to be, that at least four or five months must elapse before it is pro claimed. Before Sir William Denison left this colony, he msde grants of land of very considerable value to various societies — such as the Odd Fe'lows' Society a^id others. These grants have since been applied for. but refused by Sir Henry Young, on the ground that Sir W. Denison had no authority, on account of the provisions of the Land Sales Act of 1854, to make them. The matter was brought before the Legislature, and excited a very warm and angry discussion. Petitions from various parts of the colony have been received by the Legislature, in favour of the reficution of the Sunday clause in the new Li censing Act. I have no doubt this salutary clause will remain intact, the Licensed Victual...

Victoria. Melbourne, September 1. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 24 October 1855

^Victoria. (From a correspondent of South Australian Register.) i Melbourne, September L The important documents brought out by the Donald M'Kay sat at rest the question of the future control of toe waste lands, upon which some misapprehension prevailed both here and in your colonv. The task! undertaken by the '? People's League' and the 'OLand League,' lately organized in Melbourne, will be modified by the new measure proposed by Lord IJolin Eus.seli ; but they have appointed permanent Committees to watch over the proceedings of the Legislature until the land question is finally settled by local enactments. The Legislative Council is not expected to meet until November, h? which time it is confidently expected the Impenjal Bill constituting the new regime will have arrived. It would appear that there will be no Uvi* -J)t candidates for senatorial honours at the nerc aerigral election, if we may judge by the number that lutf¥ announced them selves for the vacaat se^t 1or K«*rtb.

The New Constitution. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 24 October 1855

The New Constitution The last news settles the question of our new ('^institution. If there is any one in the colony . who has up to the present time still doubted as to the advisability of our legislating within the Act of 1850, he can doubt now no longer. In another column trill be found a reprint of the new Waste Lands Act, which, is to place the control of the waste lands of the Crown in the hands of the Co lonial Legislatures. This Bill was read a second time in the House of Commons on the 14th June. Omitting for the present any comment on the ge neral nature and consequences of that Bill, we would direct attention to the latter part of the second clause as particularly important at the pre sent juncture. This clause provides that the Act shall come into operation in South Australia -within a specified period after the proclamation in the colony of the royal assent to any Constitution Bui which, our Council may pass under the pro visions of the Act o/'185O. This proviso is con ...

Mr Leake produced several witnesses, and endeavoured to prove assets, laches, waste, misapplication of as sets, and undue administration, which were met by the defendant's testimony, who produced vouchers in support of payments he had made —specialty debts— and made a fall statement of the affairs of the estate. The case was hardly pressed against defendant, the strictest proofs being required in support of his payments on account of the estate, so much so that defend ant seemed taken by surprise,...

TASMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 24 October 1855

TASMANIA. Hobabt Town, August 27. Wheat is again dearer, and 17s 9d. up to 18s has been paid for mil ling. Potatoes are more in demand, and are firm at 207. per ton. Barley and oats are dull of sale. Ladkcestoit, August 15th. There has been a general dulness during the week. The advices from Melbourne and Sydney mention further ar rivals from foreign ports of wheat, flour, and oats, which have caused a further decline in each article, and as it is impossible to foresee where this may cease, parties here will only buy to supply im mediate wants. Wheat is very scarce, but as the mills cannot sell their flour, they do not press holders. The price is nominal, from 12s 6d to 14s. Fine flour has been sold at 40L, but the bakers are alone buyers. The stock is very much dimi nished. We note a return parcel from Sydney of 17 tons. — Examiner.

Their excuse for leaving tlie ship, in which they shipped about five months ago in Sydney, is, that she was manned principally by New Zea landers, with whom they did not like to stop. They say that die vessel had about 500 bar rels in her when they left. There are great complaints here about the state of the roads, especially from Al bany to Wilson's Inlet. The road party has been withdrawn without staking it passable; and the mailman from Ebgenup says, h& had a hard struggle to make his way from Mount Barker to the Sound.
