Officers from the Ranks. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 14 November 1855

Officers from the Banks. A precious boon has been given to the army. ' Every French soldier carries in his knapsack the materials of a marshal's baton,' said Napoleon, when speaking of that fierce and glorious spirit which con quered at Austerlitz and Eylau. ' Every English soldier fights under the cold shade of the aristocracy,' said Sir William Napier, when writing of the brave and unrequited army of the Peninsula . For centuries, such was the distinction. In France, every career is open to talent — the military like every other. Jacques Bouhomme will fight like a hero because he knows that his merit will be allowed and his success rewarded. Hodge and Smith will fight also, because their nature is fearless, and victory is a glory and a reward. But Hodge is not as great a soldier as Jacques : he will hold his own at Inkennann, and assault a foe at an Alma, with any man that ever breathed. But lie does not take to the work as cordi ally — as cheerilyandactively — as hisbrother from ...

Melbourne. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 14 November 1855

Melbourne. A public meeting was held in Astley's Amphitheatre, Melbourne, for the purpose of taking into consideration the best means of throwing open the lands of the colony to bonafide cultivators, and thus providing for the mass of unemployed labour at present existing in the colony. The meeting was very numerously attended, the theatre being almost entirely filled. The Worshipful the Mayor of Melbourne occupied the chair. The resolutions which were passed were the following: — 1. That the only way to main tain the value of labour in a new country, and to render that country attractive to the industrious classes, is to remove ali obstruct ions to the possession and cultivation of the land, by those who have nothing to invest in them but the sweat of their brows. 2. That the removal of such obstructions, by increasing the number of the self-employed, would decrease the number of the unem ployed; and, by the inducement it would hold out to independent emigrants to come to the colon...

Poultry. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 14 November 1855

Poultry. In the Poultry Chronicle, Thomas Prater writes as follows: — ' On my way to Bir mingham I fell in with some amateurs, who were going to the poultry-show for the oft-repeated question was put to me, ' What fowls should I keep ?' as I had had experience of what are considered the most useful sorts, I answered as follows: — ' I. Game Fowls. — Elegant and compact in appearance, hardy in constitution, excel lent caterers for themselves, good layers of delicious eggs, excellent mothers and rearers of children — chickens unsurpassed in fla vour when dressed. The sole drawback to this prince of breeds is their disposition to fight ; but I cannot say that this amounts to much, as during the time I kept them I lost only four or five chickens from tbis cause. '2. Spanish. — Noble birds, abundant layers of very large eggs ; may be kept in confined spaces more readily than other breeds ; no mothers, but the chickens hardy, only wanting extra attention at about a month or six weeks old w...

Tasmania, [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 14 November 1855

Tasmania. The rupture between the Executive and Legisla tive Councils had become serious. Dr Hampden refused to obey the summons of the latter Chamber, and was ordered into custody for contempt The Doctor fortified his house, and expressed his deter mination to resistany attempt to arrest him, even to the shedding of blood. The sergeant-at-arms prudently retired and acquainted the Council with the state of affairs, and that body unanimously passed a vote au thorising the speaker to issue a warrant calling upon the sheriff and magistrates to assist in apprehending the delinquent The Sheriff tried to evade this duty, but the Council were firm, and Dr Hampden be coming alarmed, wrote a letter to the speaker, which was read amidst much laughter, offering to surrender himself as prisoner to the eergeantat anns.

THE HANGO BUTCHERY. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 14 November 1855

THE HANGO BUTCHERY. FFrom the Times.'] It has never fallen to our lot, in the course of a long .experience, to comment upon any one event so distressing to the feelings of this nation, so disgrace ful lo the enemy with whom we are at war, so shame ful to humanity, as the massacre c ?mmitted by the Russians on the boat s crew of a British man-ot-war, an the 5th of June, at Hango. Not only do we Bjaurn the loss of 16 gallant young fellows, whose fate would have been glorious if they had fallen by anyof the common accidents of war; not only are we revoked by the treachery which first allowed this boat to reach the shore under a flag of truce, and then butchered the crew — unarmed, unresisting — with an overwhelming force of troops, who sprung up from their lurking-places in the rocks; but, while we deplore the passionate violence which so base and ferocious an action will impart to every future encounter in this war, we participate in the convic tion that no effort is too great, and no...

The Philosophy of Common Things. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 14 November 1855

The Philosophy of Common Things At a late meeting of the Association of Schoolmasters ot Great Britain, a lecture was delivered by Mr. Thomas Crampton, master of the Brentford public school, on the importance of intfructioiKin the science of common things. Fromi the Mornixg Herald we take the foUowioe abatraci of the lecture: — J 'The subject which he had to introduce had lately occupied a large share of educa tional attention, ft was, in fae^. the topic of the day in regard to elementary education. It rightly pursued he believed ft would be worthy of enduring popularity, andfieboped it would receive very different treatment to that which had been given to several sob. jecis, which, like a child's plaything, hadibr a brief period obtained exclusive attention, and had then fallen into total neglect (hear). He conceived that schoolmasters Lad the great charge of the general education of die child committed to them ; practically and by implication they stood in the imppttaiat po sition...

The Murchison. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 14 November 1855

The Murchison. From this district our advices are to the 24th. ult. The works at the Mines had not been re- sumed, the machinery in connection with the pumps having been found inadequate to raise the water out of the mines, in spite of the strong force of horses at the disposal of the contractors. They are now busy making other gear. A white man named Melsom, a c. p., had been killed and eaten by the natives. It appears that the unfortunate man had wandered off the track, and was set upon by the natives, who killed him with their clubs, and afterwards cooked and ate him. Two men have b-een apprehended, who, we believe, acknow ledge to having either committed or being participa- tors in the atrocious deed. This is the first reported successful attempt on the part of these natives to destroy the life of a white man, and we fear it will lead to the repetition of similar enormities, as hitherto the white men appear to have been con- sidered invulnerable to the attacks of native wea- pon...

South Australia. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 21 November 1855

Sou£h Australia. The fortnightly mail does not seem to please the people. ' The first attempt' says the South Australian Register, ' at supplying a fortnightly mail to Australia by means of the clipper ships between Liver pool and Melbourne has not been very en couraging. The Ben Nevis had not arrived at Melbourne when the While Swan left, though she had been out ninety-one days. News from England to the 21st of June, however, had been received by the Defence, a cargo ship, which sailed from Liverpool one day after the Ben Nevis. Like ourselves the South Australians appear anxious to establish a Horticultu ral Society. We extract the following from the South Australian Register of (he 24th September: — PROPOSED HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY. A meeting of the Committee of the Growers Association was held at the Nor folk Arms, Rniulle-stivet on Saturday last to consider the expediency of forming a purely Horticultural Society, distinct from the South Australian A'riculrurai Society, the follo...

Correspondence. TO THE EDITOR OF " THE INQUIRER AND COMMERCIAL NEWS." [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 21 November 1855

fe§~As a general rule, ice wish it to be understood tltat we do not identify ourselves with the opinion or expressions of our correspondents. To the Editor of ' The Ikqcibeb ahd Commercial .News.' SIB, — Being an old shepherd of some twenty years experience, I take upon myself the liberty of answering a letter in your paper signed 'A Traveller.' I cannot deny the truth of Mr Tra veller's story about the waste and extravagance of servants in kitchens and in other places when their feet and legs are under their master's table, for I have often seen as much myself; but I denv and protest against his statement that shepherds are generally allowed too much, or a' Benjamin's portion,' as he terms it. Ought there not, indeed, to be some extra al lowance made to the shepherds who have to shift for themselves in the best way they can, as re gards cooking and taking care of their food? A shepherd has often to shift from one run to ano ther, and get his rations conveyed as he best can, and it ...

Local and Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 21 November 1855

^orat mid gemestiq Jntelliijeure. During the past week an attempt was made to propel the colonial steamer, lately refitted, but it was found that the machinery would not act. However, t£e defect was soon repaired, and the engine was pronounced to be in good working order, when it was discovered that the deck of the vessel was not sufficiently strong, and a further delay has been the consequence. However, this defect has been made good, aud after the comple tion of some improvements to the machinery, which will be made in the course of a day or two, her steaming qualities will be put to the test. The gentlemen to whom the belongs, and those en gaged in the construction of the machinery appear quite sanguine as to the result. We have now become so sensible of the convenience attendant upon steam communication between this town and the port, that its re-stabli&nment is awaited with much impatience ; and, as it appears that some legal difficulties oppose the use of our old Mend ...

The Indigo Planter. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 21 November 1855

The Indigo Planter. They who are accustomed to the society of Calcutta and other large cities, and even they who enjoy the more limited intercourse of the small stations can scarcely form an idea of the irksomeness often attendant on the life of a planter's assistant. Debarred by distance, the society of his iellowcountry men, he is thrown wholly on his own re sources for amusement during his evenings and his leisure hours, and to most, — books the pencil or the pen give sufficient employ ment. There are times however when these, even to those who love them best, fail to amuse, when the mind becomes in a manner diseased, and refuses its natural and proper food to indulge in that which in its more healthy state it would gladly avoid. It is in moments like these that tbe imagination conjures up scenes of the past — not as when in happier mood as sources of enjoyment, but to indulge its grief by contrasting past happiness with present sorrow and ennui. Again in idea, we mix with the co...
