SOUTH AUSTRALIA. NOVEMBER 3, 1855. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 26 December 1855

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. November 3, 1855. The arrival of the Hero, from Mauritius, and die Ariel, from Batavia, has again given onr sugar bny ers an opportunity of choice, which, owuig- to to the recent sales of fhree other cargoes, they have been reluctant to a-ail themselves of. Partial sales have been made by Messrs Samson, Wicksteed, and Co., at auction as follows:— Ex Hero, £26 's 6d to £31 7« fi.J tut tun- nml p\- Arii'.l .£53 7s fid tn .£31 ner ton. The rice by the same vessel realised to-day £16 13s per ton. The Scotia, from Mauritius, also is reported to-day. In butter there has been an improvement, and the late indisposition to buy, consequent upon the unfa vourable news from Melbourne we we-p /.ben in re ccipt' of, hasT-emi succeeded by' tfic establishment of former prices, and we quote sales made at Is 4d.

King Bomba. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 26 December 1855

King Bomba. There is an old distich, familiar enough in mens mouths, in which the writer denies that Kings or Governments have much to do with the ills which men arc condemned to endure during their pilgrimage upon earth. A more egregious fallacy was never licked into rhyme and thrown forth upon the world to impose upon the credulity of mankind. A trip to Naples would be an appropriate punishment for the author's offence; he would there, quickly enough, see that a King can put the cholera and the potato-rot to shame. Throughout the whole of the ha bitable globe there is no fairer spot than the territory which has received the political de nomination of the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies. Whether we look to the great island which is subject to his sway, or to the portion of his dominions which lies at the southern extremity ot the Italian pen insulsL. f-.tit*r*- is nn snnt. n'liprpmaii lii-_- Heou so Husy to deface the choicest work of the C' eater's hands.

New War Projectile. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 26 December 1855

New Wai Projectile A remarkable series of experiments have been made in the grounds adjoining Chelsea Hospital, by Captain Disney, the inventor of a new war projectile, which he states has been brought before the notice of the proper authorities, but does not yet appear to have been. adopted in the service. The invention is one of a very simple description. It con sists in fitting shells with a bursting charge of powder contained in a metal cylinder, and filling the rest of their space with a highly combustible fluid, which uponexposure to the air ignites every thing with which it is brought into contact. This fluid does not act upon the substance of the shell, is not in itself explosive, and, being prevented from leaking by a nicely- tilted brass screw-plug, enables the missile to be carried about with out much risk Directed against ships or houses, or masses of troops, the new projectile would have all the destructive properties of the rocket, without the uncertainty of aim.

Flower Garden and Shrubberies. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 26 December 1855

Flower Garden and Shrubberies When the plants have fuirly covered the beds, the principal thing to i.:tend to will be to preserve that symmetrical appearance over the whole of the beds which is indis pensable in every regular flower garden, to render^ the. eSect pleasing. To do this will involve irequent attention and considerable labour for some time to come, as so:ue of the plants will incline to grow much more strong ly rtsd will be continually encroaching upon the edgings and extending beyond its proper limits, and also getting too high and bulky for other parts of the garden. For this there will be no remedy but pegging down, and lhinnin-rout the shoots, and shortening back such as ex! end beyond their proper limits. In shortening hack shoots, however, that ma}' incline to overstep the edges of the beds, care should be observed to avoid the least appear ance of stiffness, by thinning out. the under shoots, and causing the mass to, as it were, die away at the edge. Plants of a w...

REVIEW. [From the Press.] De la Longevity Humaine etdefa Quintitede Vie surle Globe. By P. Flouruns. Paris: Gamier Freres No book brought out in Paris for many years past has created such a sensation as this one— everybody is reading it, every body talking about it, and most as suredly it will be received with equal eagerness wherever French literature is read or translated. Raieiy, indeed, has a work been produced which addresses itself so directly and so persuasively to all uiuUj wiiuout uiauiKiiuu ui isuik ur vtccu, ui uuuou or clime ; for it reveals a great scientific truth in which each human being has a positive personal interest — a truth which, if acted on, as it ought to be, and as one may expect it will be, will entirely change the destinies of all humanity.

Cape of Good Hops From the Cape Town Mail, to rhc 29th August, i we extract the following imelligencv: — Parliament has bceu further prorogued until the 21st December. The Governor, Sir George Grey 1ms left Cape Town, it is understood for an extensive tour embrac ing the slater-, Europeau ;iuJ native, beyoud tie Orange River, Nafcil. CanVrlanu. and British Caffra ria. Tlir fact that a Governor of the Cape can foilow such a route unsupported by any f -rce without danger as a simple traveller, is a proof that Southern Africa is no longer the savage land thai it was, or was be lieved to be. riven twenty-rive years ago, how little was known of the people inhabiting those extensira regions heyond their supposed savage and cruel tem |ier. their wildiicss as roving bauds, or thuir subjection to ferocious tyrants.

VICTORIA. NOVEMBER, 7, 1855. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 26 December 1855

VICTORIA. Notember, 7, 1855. The pold market has been quiet to-day, the price remaining at £3 15s 6d per ounce to buyers. Duty was paid on 1,700 ozs. at the Custom House. The question of the method of assessing the duty on the Maryborough nugget remains unsettled, the Custom House authorities standing by their demand of full duty on the entire weight of the nugget, which is 715 ounces, although it is evident that the quartz would tell up to 200 ozs. at least if the lump were broken up. As similar cases were almost of daily occur rence at the offices of the gold and l.ullion brokers during the earlier days of the gold-fields, and the svstcm of assessing die relative weights of the gold, and the quartz has been thoroughly tested by expe rience, there exists no obstacles, save official ones, to the solution of the difficulty. At Messrs Symons and Perry's sale of groceries, the following prices were realized: — Bottled fruits, 13s; 1-16 jams, 13s 6d; Hall's No I candles, Is 4Jd mixed pi...

CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 26 December 1855

CHINA. The H-wg Kong Ocertand Register of Octolicr 10th, furnishes the following summary of intelli gence: — Our Admiral.— The respectable old Lady who is by some extraordinary arrangement called Ad miral of the East India squadron, has let an oppor tunity of lighting fie Russian fleet pass. As we cx nected. the noor old man was nottcrinsr about Jauan when he ought to have been in the north with Com modore Elliott. The consequence is that tlie only cham-e that we are likely to meet with during the war of encountering a Russian ship has gone past, to the intense disgust anil annoyance of every man in the fleet, except the Admiral. It appears. Com modore Elliot, with an inferior fleet, had marked down the Uussians in a bay in the Gulf of Tartar v; he could not attack them with his interior force, and they, we suppose, fearing a supporting fleet, dared not attack him, and therefore took the opportunity of a fog to bolt. The Hornet had been despatched by Commodore Elliot to bring up rei...

TROOPS FROM INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 26 December 1855

TROOPS FROM INDIA. Without any likelihood of aggressive or defensive war with neighbouring or enclosed states — with no reason to suppose that our own subjects generally only want the chance of success to lireak out into rebellion — with an army more numerous than that with which we conquered India, and extended our landmarks from the peninsula of Malacca to the mmith nf thp. Ivvhnr wi» pjinnnt -eiil»3eriiip tn th(\ fle. claration that India has no troops to spare for co operation with England in her war against Russia. We do not say that she can spare many or any of her Europeans, though we incline to hope that she might afford a few; but we do think that if her native soldiery, csvalry or infantry, regulars or irregulars, can be made useful against the enemy, they may be considered available for the work in considerable numbers. Whether they should be shipped off direct to confront the foe iu the Crimea, or pushed on through Persia to act against the outworks of his power, is a qu...

The Fashions for August. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 26 December 1855

The Fashions for August. The extreme heat of the present season has caused our modistes to exert their ingenuity in the se lection of materials of the very lightest fabric amongst which we may mention, as greatly in favour, tulle grenadine. The skirts are generally trimmed with flounces, pinked at the edges and graduated; the body low and pointed, trimmed with a berthe com posed of three frills, and fastened at front by a bon quet or natural nowers; uiesieeves are lormeu u^ a bouillonnde and three narrow frills to match the berthe. A ruche of tulle illusion is placed round the top of the low body. The taSetaiine is a light tissue, much in vogue at the present moment, general ly on account of its extreme lightness. Dresses of tliis material arc made with double skirts. Black lace is much used for trimming these robes, and may be pat on, for example, in flutes, mixed with bows of ribbon. If the body is flat and rounded at front, a small Marie Stuart fichu is placed over it. This is ma...
