BALTIC. ATTACK UPON FREDERICKSHAM. Captain Yelverton to Real-Admiral Dundas. ARROGANT, off the Crops Islands, July, 22, 1855. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 28 November 1855
BALTIC ATTACK UPON FREDERICKSHAM. Captain Yelverton to Rear-Admiral Dundas. Arrogant, off the Crops Islands, July, 22, 1855. On leaving the fleet. I proceeded off the is'and of floglaud, where I was joined by_ the Cossaekvr*fagteh3nne, and Ruby, gun boat. Information having reached me that the enemy had sent 3,000 troops to Fred ericksham, and were making every possible exertion to put the place in a state of de fence, I lost no time in going there. I arrived on the afternoqp of the 20tfa, and would have attacked them that evening, but that the Ruby got on shore on examin ing the intricate channel leading to tbe town, and it was too late to take tbe ships in by the time she was off. Early the following morning I succeeded in (retting tbe ships up to the town, and at 9.40 we opened fire. After an engage ment of one hour, the enemy ceased fire, and abandoned their guns, some of which were dismounted. If I may judge by tbe number of men we saw them carrying away on stretchers, they mus...
Administrative Reform. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 28 November 1855
Administrative Reform. The agitation in England to promote administra tive reform is prospering as favourably as could be expected; considering how the interest of the coun try is centered on the war, and what a general un willingness exists needlessly to embarrass the Minis try. Mr Layard's motion on the subject came on for discussion in the House of Commons on tbe 15th of June. Of course it will not be carried. Neither he Nur his friends expect it With the Government opposed to it, and a large portion of the House deeply interested in maintaining the present system, such a motion is not iikety to be adopted. Mr Lay ard's motion was as follows: — ' That this House views with deep and increasing concern the slate of the nation, and is of opinion that the manner in which merit and efficiency have been sacrificed in the public appointmeuts to party and family influences, and to a blind adherence to routine, has given rise to great misfortunes, and threatens to bring discredit upon the...
Turkey. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 28 November 1855
rTtfrfeey/ __, _ : (Jonstantinople.— July iy. — me un expected arrival of Omer Pasha, which took' place on the evening of the, 1 7th in&t., has caused universal surprise here. Yester day he was received in audience by the Sultan, with whom he remained closeted for upwards of two hours. In the afternoon he paid his respects to the ministers of the Porte and to the Seraskier. The object of Omer Pasha's visit is as clear as noon-day. The army .under his command is unprovided with all the necessaries of war; the soldiers are in arears of pay for more than 9 months: they are in want of clothing, arms, and am munition. The Turkish army at the present moment, without a commissariat, neglected by the Government, and unprovided for by the allies, is in a condition ten times worse than that of the English troops in the month of November. Omer Pasha, early in the month of May, sent Behran Pasha (General Cannon) on a special mission to the Porte, without meeting with success in his -dem...

Sorat aud Ipflmf stic JfnietttJgcutt. In consequence of several of the directors of the Geraldine Mining Company having been enga ged either as jurors or witnesses in the Civil Court on the 14th inst., the meeting called for that day has, we perceive, been postponed until the 12th proximo, when it is anticipated there will be a mil meeting of the proprietory. ? ♦ ? : ? . A correspondent, assuming the signature of 'Beyem,' has addressed us relative to the de fenceless state of Mount Eliza. He states that the want of police is much ielt by the inhabitants, and will be still more so during the fruit season. He complains that, the road is swarming with idle vagabonds, who live by plunder. He him self has been a sufferer. On one occasion bis house was forcibly entered, and twice he lias been visited by marauders, who have carried oS his linen which was bleaching in the yard. He has been annoyed by continual visitors, who come at unseasonable hours under some frivolous pretext, but, as he...
The Murchison. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 28 November 1855
The Murchison. We have received letters from this district to the 10th inst. Smelting had recommenced, and a few tons of pig lead were ready to be conveyed to the Port The contractors had, however, been incon- venienced, in consequence of many of their men ha- ving struck work. It appears they had agreed, du- ring the suspension of the work, to remain at the mines, the cost of their maintenance being deducted from their wages when operations were renewed. But when the time came they refused to work unless the cost of their rations during the idle time was allowed them. This the contractors very properly refused to permit. The malcontents have been brought before the magistrates, and severally sen- tenced to imprisonment. We perceive by an adver- tisement in to-day's issue that the contractors reqnire free men, their experience informing them that it is useless to depend upon ticket-of-leave miners. The Preston had again got ashore, and received some damage. Beyond the two men mentio...

COLONIAL NEWS. Victoria. Ihe continued arrivals of rice and potatoes tend to keep down the price of of flour which is quoted at £36 10s to £37. A private letter from this colony, dated 17th Sept., informs us that a vessel was to leave shortly for Western Australia, with a company of the 12th Regiment to relieve the detachment of the 99th Regiment stationed here, and which will proceed to &nbsp; England. Our correspondent states: — "The most &nbsp; startling and novel event that has taken place here &nbsp; lately was last night, or, I should say, early this morning, a shock of an earthquake, distinctly felt by many. It was accompanied by a rumbling sound, moving from north so south. I looked at my watch, &nbsp; which told ten minutes to 3 a.m. It was calm and &nbsp; clear at the time, but shortly afterwards the wind freshened, the sky became overcast, and to-day we have had also some slight showers.

Markets. SOUTH AUSTRALIA MERCANTILE REPORT. Thursday evening, October 25, 1855. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 5 December 1855
Markets. SOUTH AUSTRALIA MERCANTILE REPORT. Tliursday evening, October 25, 1855. In early situations the barley harvest has com menced, and though yesterday and to-day have been verv wet and stormy, the weather latterly has been as favourable as could be desired for maturing the crops, which promise a heavy yield. The price of flour remains the same as quoted last week, but there are no special features to notice in the market. The quantity offered for sale just keeps pace with the demand, but speculation is inactive, whilst foreign supplies are expected. In bran the dnlncss observable in the Melbourne markets at this time of the year, when, according to previous seasons, prices might be expected to ad vance, has made holders the more disposed to sell, and prices are unsteady. Sales for quantity have been made at 2s. per bushel. The large importa tions of oats and gram partly, account for this unex pected decline. Auction sales in produce and merchandize have been light this week, a...
