TASMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 14 November 1855
TASMANIA. Hobabt Towx, Sept. 14. — The grain market has taken a considerable decline, owing to the recent im portations from South America, and a further decline is confidently looked for. In addition to the Fingal and Lalla Rookh, other vessels are expected with breadstuffs, and the conse quence is that the? trade is exceedingly dulL and that purchasers buy/only for necessary consumption. Wheat may be Luoted at 10s., and flour at £43. A small parcel of fecellent sample was offered yester day at 14s^ but d«taed, die miller having a suffi cient stock on hand/ Potatoes have ai&o declined, and may now be pur chased at £14 pefr ton, the Mimosa having brought a large quantuyjffom Sorell and its neighbourhood. This vessel hayiikewise brought a considerable quan tity of wheat for this market. So far, then, as bread stvfls are concerned, there is every prospect of a reasonable price, which is yet the more probable from the genial rain, which has fallen to improve the crops. Lauscest...
FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 14 November 1855
PRANCE. The French Empebok'b Iixjtess. — The Paris correspondent of the Daily News writes, under date Paris, Sunday evening, June 16th:— ' The Emperor is unwell. The rumour of his illness produced a serious effect on the latue bourse on tne Boulevard this morning. The Rentes were down as low as 67 fr. 10c^ being a fall of a franc and a-half from yester day's lowest price. About 1 o'clock, in consequence of a report that His Majesty was doing well, there was a reaction, and the hist quotation was 67fr. 50a It is beyond doubt that the Emperor is indisposed, but to what extent it is difficult to say, as of course, should his illness be serious, the truth would not be allowed to transpire. He has been bled at least once this morning; Borne people say twice. He is. in bed, and has sufered from very violent colic. This I know for certain. An uneasy feeling in his head is spoken of; but of this I can say nothing on any good authority. The Empress, it is said, passed the whole of the night ...

Markets. GRAIN AND FLOUR MARKET. NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 14 November 1855
^rTttrWic (3ilm Ktla. GEADT AND FLOUR MARKET. NEW SOUTH WALES. The latest market reports are those of the 1st Sept, from which we extract the following: — The Mills.— Messrs. Barker & Co.: The recent importations of breadstufis and further shipments looked for have operated to cause a reduction of 10L per ton in the mill price of flour since last report. Fine flour is now quoted at 3O2L, and second quality at 2l£ per ton of 2,000 lbs. Chilian and Valparaiso wheat has been sold during the week at 9s Gd to 10s per bushel. Bran, 3s per bushel.

CHILE. Valparaiso— its Population, Commerce, and Civilisation. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 14 November 1855
CHILE Valparaiso— its Population, Com merce, and Civilisation A correspondent of the New York Tri bune supplies the following interesting par ticulars concerning the present condition of the important city of Valparaiso :— The aspect of the coast, as one approaches 'Valparaiso from Juan Fernandez on the west, is not by any means inviting, here in south latitude 33 degrees; still less so is it between this and Callao, to the north, in south latitude 12 degrees; in fact, it is mostly composed of sterile mountains, or arid and elevated table-lands, of which I will send you a more particular account when the report of the Government survey of the desert of Atacuma, now in press, shall have been published. Chile has plains, but they are all elevated. Santiago, the capital and distant but 90 miles from this place, is in the midst of extensive plains — girt, how ever, by mountains, spurs of the Croideras, as they call the Andes here; and yet it is less than 1600 feet above the level of the...
Congressional Morality. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 14 November 1855
Congressional Morality. We were infinitely amazed three or four weeks ago by a practical joke in Washing ton City upon a number of nice men of Congress. It was too good to be left un published. A couple of merry tellows, one of them a distinguished member of Congress from a Southern State, and the other a dis tinguished ex-editor from Kentucky, con creted a letter purporting to be addressed by a young lady to a very fine looking gen tleman. It was got up in a Srst-rate style. The pretended young lady set forth therein that she had several times seen the gentle man she was addressing ; that she was cap tivated by his fine face and manly form ; that her heart wasdeeply touched by what she saw and heard of him ; that she must make his acquaintance before his departure from the city ; that she hoped and prayed he would forgive her seeming boldness, as it was the first imprudent act of her life ; that she had always moved, and was still moving in the highest circles of the capital ; that...

Miscellaneous. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 14 November 1855
IJtatkHwous. A letter from the Salt Lake City gives the following account of the debasing results of polygamy in Utah: — 'The Mormons, after their passions, (or, as they call it, their holy desires to people the earth), are grati fied, seldom pretend to support their nu merous wives. Brigham Young declared, last conference, that he did not know how many wives he had. 'Tell the Gentiles/ said he, ' I do not know half of them when I see them.' The majority of these poor women are compelled to work for their daily bread, and many are in such a desti tute condition that they are forced to seek the charity of strangers. It is an actual fact that one of the wives of the Chief of the Apostles gains her livelihood by washing for the boarders of a public house in town. Indeed, it is nothing uncommon for these lords of creation to send their wives out in the canons for wood, and any day you can see women chopping legs and driving cattle to the mountains. Subjected to a slavery worse than can ...
Review. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 14 November 1855
leutp. [From Ihe Times.] 'A Journal of the Swedish Embassy, in the years 1623 and 1654,' by the Ambassador Bulstrode Whitelocke. A. new edition, revised by Henrv Reeve. Esq., 2?.S.A. The fete of this book has been singular, and, until now, unfortunate. It is a faith ful record of the first embassy sent forth by the Commonwealth of England, just 200 years ago,, written by the ambassador him self, who was both a man of learning and a man of the world, equally versed in the manners of foreign countries and in the po licy of his own. It preserves with great minuteness and considerable graphic power the conversation and the humour of several of the most remarkable persons of the 17th century, for Whitelocke successively dines and chats with Oliver Cromwell, dances the brawls with Quean Christina, and debates the politics of Europe with Chancellor Oxenstiern. The style is quaint, but vi gorous ;. the manners of the time described witha punctilious accuracy which is extreme ly amusing; and...

$&0 JinijuirM & ([[omaujrjpat gescs. Quid vervm atque deceits, euro et ngo, et omnisin hoc sum. WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBEB 14, 1855. It is with regret we hear that the Mecha nics' Institute is not in a flourishing con dition, and that it is unable to carry out successfully the objects for which it was es tablished. When the Institute was origi nally formed, there was, as is usual on the introduction of any novelty, much interest displayed by the public, an interest which could not be expected to continue affcqf the first burst of popular fervour had subsided ; yet, making every allowance, we were not prepared to find so much apathy displayed as at present. Formerly there was no lack of lecturers, and during the season the mem bers of the Institute and visitors were fre quently instructed and amused, by the ex ertions of those gentlemen who kindly de voted their time and talents for the benefit of their fellow-colonists in this capacity, but latterly, as is well known, this ...

The State of Moscow. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 14 November 1855
The State of Moscow. A letter from Moscow of the 18th April, in the Patrie, says: — ' The religious fana ticism of the people is more excited here than in St. Petersburg. The churches are constantly filled; all the images of the cele brated saints are displayed, and after the usual services, the priests address the most violent harangues to the people, who leave the churches in a kind of frenzy against the enemies of Russia, and express themselves ready to give their v#ry last kopeck to the Czar towards the expenses of the War. Among the tradesmen there are two in number who are very rich, and it is in a great measure on them that the charges of the war fall most heavily. Notwithstand ing the agitation which prevails, the French, however, are respected, and continue their various vocations without hindrance; they are even the objects of attention to which they were not before accustomed. The rich lords who visit their establishments talk of the French army, the Zouaves, and Chasseur...

Administrative Reform. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 14 November 1855
Administrative Reform. The following address has been issued by the As sociation: — Fellow-countrymen, the war is the first thought widi all; it is almost impossible to divert attention to anything than, that actual battle has swept down 5,000 men, mismanagement 15,000; that of £6,000, 000, spent upon transport ships, full £2,000,000 were as utterly wasted as if the money had been thrown into the Black Sea; that ships filled with essential stores, provisions, and clothinjr, were ex posed to the fury of, a foreseen storm, and wrecked and sunken from sheer obstinacy. The recent addi tion to the income tax, die increased duties upon tea, sugJ-r and coffee, have been rendered necessary by the grossest blundering and mismanagement. It is* difficult to dispel the doubc that we have not yet before us the entire account of the rear, and are still in ignorance of the total cost of the war. We wish it, however, to be directly understood that die Administrative Reform Association is no mere wa...
