The Sultan has willingly seconded their views, and to attain this point a council of war ministry was formed, composed of pashas, ulemas, (doctors of religion) high officers in the army, and ministers of the Porte, who ha^ e for some time past jbeen occupied in discussing the matter; lately with the accession to their body of a representative from each of the Christian communi ties, and they have now come to a. decision which has had the concurrence of ll£s-_ Highness.

Ween, on a previous occasion, it became our duty to animadvert upon the interference of the' Governor with the judicial decisions of the magistracy, we remarked that, while collectively the magistrates of the colony were a highly conscientious body of men, yet we were not prepared to assert that their courts were model courts of justice, or that among1 the magistracy some might be foundnot exactly of the description one would wish to see filling the office of Justice of the Peace. We are aware that there is room for re form. It is impossible to witness the scenes which occasionally occur in the rural courts of justice, or to hear or read of the decisions of some of the country magistrates, without arriving at the conviction that a change of some description is required. Sut, while ad mitting all this, it would be unjust not to take into consideration the peculiar posit...

California [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 24 October 1855
California Throughc-at the whole length and breadth of the State ot'~@a&£OTnia, the universal cry for the last nine moiitfes-lia^ been 'hard times;' during that period, real pTejfsriy has fallen 100 per cent., and in almost every department of trade more money has heen lost than gained The primary causes of this unprecedented depression are the dry winter which stopped the operations of the miners, and the fearfully overgrlutted con dition of the mariiets. TheCahfornian mines are not like the Australian mines, as the gold is most generally found in small particles, more equally distributed, and re quires to be washed before any returns can be had. The miners here, except in tunnel ling and quartz crushing,' are almost wholly at the mercy of the water companies, who exact a dollar per day per man for the use of water. Three dollars a day is the average yield of our mines, bnt there are very many cases in which one or two dollars a day is all that can be extracted. A dollar a ...

Russia. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 24 October 1855
Russia A letter from Vienna, June 9, says: — 'Reliable news from St. Petersburg is at present so very rare, that the following perfectly authentic information will hardly fail to be acceptable to your readers: — The war seems to weigh heavily on the inhabitants of the Russian capital, pasticularly on the Imperial family. Tjhere is no amusement of any kind at the Russian Court, and the middle and lower classes ap pear to share the uneasy feeling which is evidently felt in the higher ranks of society. A change is re marked in lie Emperor Alexander's countenance and he often appears very thoughtful, and even sad. In high official circles a strong impression prevails, that peace is not so far distant as is generally be lieved.' Although the source at which the fore going was acquired cannot be mentioned, you may be assured that it was a good one. Up to yesterday it was believed that the Emperor of Austria would pass some weeks at Luxemburg, but it is to-day re lated in military circles ...
