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

To the Editor of ' Tire Ixquibeb asd Commercial News.' SIR, — The measure announced in the Go vernment Gazette of the 13th instant, namely that on and after the 1st day of January next, the official privilege of franking letters shall entirely cease in this colony, and from that day forward no letter whatever shall be transmitted through the Post Office, unless prepaid by affixing the proper number of postage stamps, I take to be the most encouraging and gratifying development of Ad ministrative Beform with which our new Gover nor could inaugurate his Administration. Let us hope that his policy in other depart ments of the Government will be as enlightened, vigorous, and abuse-destroying as this is, and we shall then have, at least, a well-organized and ea sily working state, though it is neither popu lous nor rich. A return of all franked and all paid letters which have passed through, the Post office of the colony during the present year, also of the ave rage weights of each sort,...

THE BALTIC. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 21 November 1855

THE BALTIC The news from the Baltic is principally confined to the atrocious massacre at Hango by the Russians of a boat's crew, landing some prisoners under a flag of truce. The subjoined official despatches narrate in full the details of this disgraceful occurrence: — 'Duke of Wellington at anchor, Tolboukin Lighthouse, E.SE. 3 miles, 8th June, 1855. ' Sir — I have to ecknowledge the receipt of your letter of the 6th instant, No. 4, with its enclosures, reporting the painful circum stances under which a serious loss of officers and men has been sustained in consequence of a boat belonging to the ship you com mand having been detached for the purpose of landing and releasing prisoners upon the coast of the enemy; but much as I must regret! the losses which have occured, and sensible as I am of the distress which such occurences are calculated to excite iu the mind of any officer entrusted with command, it has, nevertheless, become my duty to call your attention to some important om...

EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 21 November 1855

EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE. The May number of the Russian Marine Magazine contains tbe reports of Mansu rofij who was sent as Imperial Commissioner into the Crimea for the purpose of enquiring into the state of the medical arraageiuents there, and of distributing the patriotic gifts of his countrymen — a mission very nearly akin to that of the Times commissioner at Scutari. His reports reveal much that will offer a corresponding pendant to the pic tures already published of tbe state of things in our hospitals. An Imperial ukase, which has been pub lished at St. Petersburg, postpones to the 15th September next the recruitment thai had I-e3n ordered in the Government of Ekaterinoslaw. In order, however, to ac celerate the recruitment ordered in the six teen other governmeuts of the empire, it is decreed: — That all the exceptions which have been hitherto admitted are now an nulled. 2. That in the towns and vil lages the men shall be taken to the age of 37. 3. That the commissions of recru...

GERMANY. Further diplomatic efforts. — It appears - from the German papers that die Cabinet of fet.

" H.M. Steamship Cossack," "At sea, off Siskar, llth June, 1855. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 21 November 1855

' H.M. Steamship Cossack, 'At sea, off Siskar, llth June, 1855. ' Sir — In reply to the points connected with the assault upon the boat of the ship, upon which you desire additional explana tions, I would premise that I sent her in the full belief that a boat with a flag of truce flying, detached from a ship stationed off the enemy's coast, was entitled either to be warned off before approaching the shore, or to be ordered off on reaching the shore be fore her communication was received, or to have an opportunity of making that com munication to a person appointed by the enemy; and I was persuaded that a boat complying with these conditions was per fectly sate from molestation, and that While she did so no misunderstanding could arise. 'I will now proceed to answer your queries. ' i. The opportunity was the first that had presented itself, and as it appeared a favourable one, I sent a flag of truce in im mediately on my arriving at Hango. It was in respect of what I believed to be t...

In addition to the log of Jarrah timliSr which had been many years under water, and which was sent to South Australia in the Vivid by Captain : Scott, another sample has been forwarded by Mr 6. Shenton in the Robert Clivtr. This latter piece was taken off the butt of one of his verandah posts recently removed, and had been under ground for 22 years. It is perfectly sound, aud furnishes a very lair example of the indestructibi lity of our timber. We regret to learn that the South Australian Government have yielded to the clamour raised by interested parties, and, against the wishes of the Commissioners, have deter mined to use the Hurray River timber for railway purposes instead of Western Australian jarrah. Governor McDonnell being a new comer, and anx ous to please, and being, moreover, unversed in such matters, has — as was, perhaps, natural under the circumstances — decided to encourage the use of native products without reference to their fit ness for the required wprk.

Origin of the Term ' Dunning.' — The origin of this expression owes its birth to one Joe Dun, a famous bailiff1 of Lincoln, so extremely active, and so dexterous at the management of his rough business, that it became a proverb, when a .man refused to pay his debts, to say, ' Why don't you * Dun him?' — that is, ' Why don't you send Dun to arrest him?'

lira HELiras to 4th August. Br the Champion from Melbourne, the files of the Horn: i-TK-vs arrived but few other newspapers. The news from Europe is very unsatisfactory. No advance had been made in the Crimea, the state of besieged aud besiegers being about the same as per last advices. ' Tlie mo^t stirring eipi^ode we have to record occurred on the 18th July, when the Russians made u vigorous attack in tlie direction of Baluklava, with the in tention of driving back the English, aud so turning the divisions operating on tlie jyjaiaklioff. The plan seems to have been carefully premeditated, aud energetically acted upon ; but it was signally defeated by the inviiii-ible courage of our army. The Russians on this occasion were repulsed with great loss. A similar attack was made on the left approaches of the French iu front of the Mulakhoff Tower three nights before, and failed no less sigually . On the night of the 22nd July, the K,uc&ians took a sudden alarm, and, as is usual ...

Transmission of News from' the Colonies. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 21 November 1855

Tnmsmission of News from' the Co lonies. On the motion that the House go into Commit tee of supply, Mr F. Scully begged to call the at tention of t£e House to a grievance with respect to die transmission of newspapers from this coun ty to the British colonies. By virtue of an Act passed in 1840, newspapers were sent free to all W die British colonies. By a late arrangement of the Post office that act had in effect hftn repealed. It appeared that the recent act gave an option to the Post-office to pat on a tax ot a-' penny, or not, on newspapers sent to the colonies. The injustice of this new tax was very great. It was most ex traordinary that they coufcfnot be sent to Gibral tar or Malta without being subject to a charge of a penny. 'Due inconvenience both to newsvendors and to private persons who were in the habit of sending out papers to the colonies was very great, and its moral consequences were also of a serious character ; for it would lead to a breaking up of that frequent co...

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

Tasmania. By way of- Melbourne we have Tasma niun intelligence to the 15th instant. The engrossing topic is the serious ' rum pus' between the Legislative Council and tbe Executive, occasioned by the determina tion of the former to compel the attendance of Dr. Hampton, Comptroller of Convicts, who, having been summoned to appear be fore a Committee of the House, had refused ! to present himself. The Hobart Town cor respondent of the Argus thus writes under date September 15th: — *' Tbe straggle between the Executive and Legislative Councils has assumed an aspect so important, that the very continuance of British rule in this colony depends upon the result. Sir Henry Fox Young our new Governor, has pursued a most insulting and absurd course. He has pitted himself against the representatives of the people, and who can doubt the result. Since my last letter the Council Committee have held some sit tings, and the evidence which has been de livered before it is of such an appalling compl...

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

Victoria. The ' golden' times are fast becoming ' copper' times with us. Who would have dreamt, two years back, that we should have had a ride from the heart of Melbourne the centre of Collingwood for threepence, and take oar chop or steak at the Imperial Hotel, in Coliins-street, for sixpence. Three-roomed stone and brick cottages are now advertised to be let at 8s ; per week, for which £4 to .£6 was once demanded as the weekly rental. The inhabitants in and around Melbourne were very generally startled from their slumbers on Monday morning by a slight shock of an earthquake, which, although perfectly harmless in its effects, was suffi- cient to set doors rattling and bedsteads shaking for a few seconds. While its effects were palpably experienced by persons in their houses, policemen and others walking through the streets were unconscious of it. Probably it may be referred to the same volcanic action that was experienced so se-   verely in New Zealand last January. &a...
