Berie[?]. [The following Review of a new poem. by the LAURKATE, is given in the Atlas.] [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 5 December 1855

Review. [The following Review of a new poem, by the Laureate is given in the Atlas.] Maud, and Other Poems. By Alfred Tennyson, D.C.L., Poet Laureate. It is no small comfort in these days of ly- ing, humbug, and flunkey worship, to come at last upon a real, true thing, and that a genuine poem, full of those vivid yet subtle pictures of internal life and external nature which Tennyson knows so well to draw. It seemed a long while since there had been a a natural outpouring of our great poet's song. The "Ode on the Death of the Duke     of Wellington," one of the "Other Poems" in this little volume, albeit containing some better stuff than the world gave it credit for, would satisfy no one, for the simple reason that its subject was not a poetical personage; not a whole man, but one great in some parts   of his brain, small in others, and working diligently through life with a cold, iron heart. Such a man was no subject for Tennyson, and however ...

JTocat and Qemestut JnfeHigeuce. I In consequence of the interference of iheflov- \ eminent, an interference which would have theVffect of impeding the usefulness of the Board of Educa- na tion, three of its members have felt it their duly tc -^ resign. Yesterday, the Bevs.G. P. Pownall, and J. Leonard and Mr Lochee, forwarded their letter of resignation to the Colonial Secretary, and their remaining non-official colleague, the Rev-S.Hardev, while holding the same views as the seeeeding members, tetains his seat, solely because liis ap pointment was of so recent a date, and he had not, therefore, much opportunity of witnessing' the working of the Board. While perfectly agreeing with the retiring members, and holding that under the peculiar circumstances of the case, they could not hold office with satisfaction to themselves or benefit to the colony, we cannot but regret the injury inflicted upon tiie cause of Education by their withdrawal. It will be difficult to procure competent s...

Who ought to Command the Allied Armies. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 12 December 1855

Who ought to Command the Allied Armies. Upon this subject, ' iieynoM's Newspa per,' and ultra-destructive journal, has the followiug: — The Ministerial organs, both in France and En gland, are already preparing the public mind for tlie raising of the siege of bebasiojiol. It would br- death to the rcputaiiuu of the two countries to adupt such a course. Sebastopol is is uot impregnable; but the chiefs of the two armies have beeu all along iueiri cienL The late Marshal St. AntauJ — who, with all bis mural faults, was a great soldier— thought no thing of Lord Kaglan, but passed a high eulogiuin upom Omar Pasha. Immediately upon the Mar shal's death the policy of France and England should have been to place the conduct of their armies un der the leadership of the Ottoman Scrdcr, who had already shown in a scries of brilliant victories that he knew how to beat the Russians wherever be en countered them.

Jealousies between French and English. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 12 December 1855

Jealousies between French and English. The correspondent of the Daily News writes as follows, from before Sebastopol, dated July 21 :— ' Who is to be the new Commanderin Chief is still the main question of interest throughout the camp ; and in finding answers for it, individual speculation is even busier now than it was immediately after the death of Lord Raglan. The selection then seemed to lie between General Simpson and some one of two or three old warriors in retire ment at home : but the refusal of the former to accept the offered command having struck him out of the list, the choice becomes narrowed to limits which puzzle the oldest quid wuncs in the camp, to fix with confi dence on the coming chief. To more than one, this provisional state of things has re vived a consideration of the much discussed policy of the divided command of the Anglo French forces, and I have beard opinions given against it which are respectable enough to justify me in throwing out an allusion to the ...

The General Feeling. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 12 December 1855

The General Feeling1. I do not see any possibility of our being able to abandon our present position on the south side of Sebastopol. or to make a ge neral attack on the Russian armies which are encamped before us. Every ravine has ' been made another Sebastopol by their en gineers. Our Land Transport Corps is so hardly pressed by the service of the Siege Artillery that, as I am informed, the ration of fuel has been, on several occasions, recently not forthcoming for the troops to the full amount. It is to be presumed that the allied generals are acquainted with some facts respecting the strength and position of the Russian army, which induce them to think it would be unadvisable to break up o-ir camp and try to force the passes of the Belbeck. They may distrust their own strength or the efficiency of their means of transport, or they may be deterred by the force and the attitude of the enemy. They may be influenced by considerations, and may act on information of which we ars ignor...

Progress of the Siege of Sebastopol [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 12 December 1855

Progress of the Siege of Sebastopol. I The most singular feature in this siege consists in the part played by the Russian fleet, which from first to last has contributed most essentially to the strength and defence of the town. Its guns supplied the works of tiie enemy as they were successively thrown up with armaments of extraordinary power; its crews reinforced the garrisoo ? with a numerous bodj of practical artillery men. Many vessels were destroyed, but others remained, and their broadsides have been brought into play to the serious cost of the allies. The harbour of Sebastopol and its creeks offer every facility to these nianoe vres, and General Pelissier relates in his report of the last assault that a crashing fire was poured upon the storming columns, not only from the works against which they were advancing, but also from the enemy* steamers, wnich came up at full steam, and manoevred with great skill and effect— an incident perhaps, hitherto unprecedented in the defence o...

The Command in the Crimea. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 12 December 1855

The Command in the Crimea (Frum the Daily Netrs.) The report that General Simpson has ! actually resigned the command of the : army before Sebastopol gains ground ra ! pidlj\ It is said that ibe gallant officer's health will not permit him to remain at a post where so much that tries severely both his moral and physical energy has to be j gone through. \i this is true, the question naturally arises who will be the new leader of the British troops in the allied camp? One version of the report has it that Ge neral Simpson's resignation has been some days in Lord Panmure's hands, but that the Minister-at-War is taking time to select the right man for the appointment. We can well imagine how puzzled the noble lord must be to choose— not from among so many, but from among so few men fit for the situation —a Commander-in -Chief of the Crimean army. Neither at home nor with the army does there appear to be any general officer who has distinguished him self sufficiently to be at once pointe...

Wellington. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 12 December 1855

A correspondent, under date December 4, writes as follows : — ' I regret to inform you that a most cool and deliberate murder was committed in this neigh bourhood yesterday, the victim being an inoffensive man named William Longmate, who was in charge of a sheep station belonging to Mr James Paine (of the Oapcl), at a place called Beelup, in the immediate vicinity of Fishleigh. The mur derer or murderers, appear to have effected their purpose while the man was preparing the dinner, as there was a bucket with some potatoes partly pealed ou the bench close to where he was lying, and a small knife, which he had been using was ibund under the bench, close to the body. The murder was effected by draw ing a strap tightly l-ound the unfortunate man's throat. The strap was bound twice round the throat and fastened at the back of the neck by a half hitch. Longmate seems to have been murd ered for the sake of a few pounds of which he was in possession. Mr. Eliot and some police came down this...

The Demonstration in Hyde Park. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 12 December 1855

The Demonstration in Hyde Park. Strong hopes had been entertained that Sunday last weald have passed off in peace, as the withdrawal of Lord Robert Gros ven - or's unpopular bill had considerably allayed the ill-feeling wlrch i»s previous progress in Tlie House of Commons had provoked; and tbe promise of an inqniry into the con duct of the police had, it was thought, tend ed to mitigate any irritation that might have arisen from the conviction »nd punish ment of persons accused by the. police on Monday week. On Sunday last the police authorites scrupulously abstained from any act of provocation, and the crowds which congregated in the park seemed to be main ly attracted by mere motives of curiosity. As usual, however, in such crowded assem blages, there was a considerable leaven of ragged boys and of what are termed ' roughs.' These at first moved in groups in different directions, without making any improper demonstrations. At half-past two o'clock a man mounted a lump of wood stac...

Services under the Double-Headed Eagle, by Dr. P. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 12 December 1855

Services under the Double-Headed j Eagle, by Dr.F***. This is the journal of a German surgeon in the Russian service lie was attached to the head quar ters of Prince Menschikottj and accompanied thnt general to the field of Alma. The author corrobo rates the oft enunciated opinion, th;it Lad the allied forces pushed on to SeLtustopoi immediately after the victory of the Alma, it must have fallen, compa ratively speaking, au easy ei-ii-]uest to the invaders. Throughout tbe work the writer bears the highest testimony to the gallantry of the EuglLdi soldiers but speaks most contemptuously of their officers. By the doctor's account, the auvaucc of the allies on Sc- j bastopol created a general panic there, lie thus I describes the departure of the Hussiau army to meet j thac of the allies: — A RUSSIAN MAIiCH. But no enthusiastic cheers are iicard from the sol diers; not a sound escapes them, or if they talk to gether it is in suppressed whimpers, as if the march were an ingloi ious retr...

No title Suez. Sept. 22, 1855. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 12 December 1855

[T?rom our own Correspondent.] Suez, Sept. 22, 1855. Our latest dates from the Crimea are — by the English papers — to the 8th September, those , from Smyrna and Constantinople are far less re cent ; but we have from Malta copies of General Pellisier's despatches of the 9th Sept. On the 8th the Malakhoff Tower was taken by the French, who have there established them selves. We were less successful in maintaining oar po sition in the Great Redan and that of the Careen ing Bay, as it appears both these points are com manded by other Russian batteries. The fall of the Malakhoff into the hands of the allies is, how ever, considered as sure to lead to an early and undisputed possession of these points. Reports are current in Egypt, that the Rus sians have evacuated the town, a portion of which is now a heap of ruins, and retired to Fort Con stantine ; this requires further confirmation ; but General Pellissier reports that the Karabelnaya and Southern part of the Town have been de stroye...
