EUROPEAN NEWS To SEPTEMBER 4. The Esmeralda arrived at Fremantle yester day afternoon. She left London on the 4th September, the Sir William Ffolkes having left a month previously, Mr H. L. Cole re turned by that opportunity, and we are in   debted to him for copies of the London jour- nals of the 4th Sept. Sebastopol was not taken, nor was the Redan nor the Malakoff. It appears from the Times of the 4th September, that the French were busy carrying on their works in front of the Malakoff, but they had been so much impeded by the enemy, that it was found necessary to bombard the place for three days It is stated that everything is ready for the attack. ' Opinions are divided.'' says the Times correspondent, " as to the plan of attack that will be observed. Some think that without pushing their works beyond the point at which they have now arrived, the French will give the assault ; and a re port is prevalent in our camp that a British division (the Light, it is rumoured...

paapiy.3 Colonial Secretary's Office, Perth Dec. 12, 1855. Gentlemen, — I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your joint communication of the 11th instant. In reply thereto I am directed by His Excellency to state his regret that any communication addressed to you should have led to the concision that he did not attach the smallest importance to the opinions of the Board. The course His Excellency has pursued would, in his opinion, justify tho opposite conclu sion, f His Excellency is oi opinion that my letter of the 23rd November, anu my last communication ex plained his genera! views with sufficient clearness for all practical purposes and he much regrets that the Board should be of a contrary opinion. His Excellency is at a loss to understand what portion of the letter which he has caused to be ad dressed to the Board can be construed into 'charges' preferred against its members, and he deeply regrets if he has inadvertently placed a very wrong con struction upon their w...

Russian Contempt for the Besiegers. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 19 December 1855

Russian Contempt for the Besiegers. The following letter, says the Times cor respondent, fell into my hands a day or two since on a visit to a deserted village, about 12 miles from Balaklava. It is by a female hand, and it dated tbe very day of the cap ture of the Mamelon Vert, from a village to the north of Sebastopol. Omitting the do mestic details, I cannot forbear giving the political and military details, which may be considered public property: — ' May 26 (June 7). ' c You are not, my dear sister, in a very pafe position ; according to my judgment, the euemy is only a few steps from you at Foross. The Baida road is broken up. We have already sent pioneers to the coast to break up the roads in case of the arrival of the enemy ; they have taken a sufficient quantity of powder. In your letter of the 12th May (24th) you said all was quiet about you, but it cannot be so now. Kerteh is taken ; at Arabat there was a battle, in which we were victorious.

Abyssinia. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 19 December 1855

Abyssinia. Of all places in the world, who would have expected to hear of a revolution in Abyssinia? Such, however, is the case, and King Oubi, who had succeeded in establish ing his supremacy over a number of moun tain Chiefs, until then independant, has been killed by his relative. Cassa adopts the title of 'Most Christian King,' and has manifest ed his intention to re-conquer the Sennaar, which formely belonged to his dominions. This will bring him into collision with Egypt.

To tiie Editor of ' Thk Inquirer and Comjuerciai. News.'' SIR, — Your readers are much indebted to you for placing before them the correspond ence between the Government and the Ge neral Board of Education. While most of them will probably regret, with you, the ne cessity that may have arisen for the with drawal from the committee of Mr Pownall, Mr Leonard, and Mr Loehet*, one cannot but hope that the public will view the various points under discussion with as calm and dispassionate a judgment as possible. A public system of education has not been a matter of long experience in this colony : and, with all the care and talent that may have been employed in devising such a sys tem and putting it iu working order, it would be ni:u*vi.-ii3us if it were altogether free from defects, or incapable of improve ment.
