General Sir George Brown. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 26 December 1855

General Sir George Brown. The following is S. G. Brown's reply to the Leamington deputation, and which has given so much oflence to the English press: — ?* Gentlemen, — I thank you most sincerely for the congratulations with which you and your fellow townsmen have been so good as to receive me on my return to England, but the very flattering terms in which your address is expressed arc so far beyond «uijr ^msviMu uiciu uiub -ft. wui i -mini uuu jb wu oux«^ I shall only correctly interpret them as the expres sion of your scutirueets of admiration at the conduct of the gallant army with which I have been asso ciated; for in reality I have done throughout this war nothing more than to carry out, to the best of my ability and judgment, the orders and instructions which I have from tune to time received from our highly-respected and much-lamented chief. With respect to the army, I may safely assert that its con duct has been beyond all praise, and that at no period in the history of this...

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

EUSSIA The ' Nord' (the Russian organ at Brussels), in a letter from Helsingfors of the 9tb July, publishes a series of accusations against tbe English, who are said to carry on war after the fashion of pirates. According to the A'ord, the English, on die 19th of June, took from Jean Erickson, who appears to have been a sore or noDinson Crusoe, jour xowimg-pieces and forty pounds of fish, tbe produce of his in dustry, leaving him only a shilling as an equivalent. Again, on tbe 27th of June, the English cruisers took away, we are told, from Fcegkt, an island of tbe Aland Archipelago, the seven fattest sheep from a Sock of eighteen, leaving the poor owners of diem unrecompensed and in great distress. Again, on the 28th of June, it is said that a part of the enemy forced some cupboard doors in the village of Baenoe, and stole some chemises and 6shing-tackle. Tbe Emperor has conferred on a priest of the name of Jeroraonach Johaun Sawinoff, the military order of St. George fourth class, ...

One of the changes in the constitution of the Board of Education recommended by the Governor, is the substitution of a lay for a clerical chairman; in other words — His Excellency requires that the Board should be more immediately under his control. On a previous occasion the late chairman had been given to unlerstand that it would be acceptable to the Governor were the Colonial Secretary to become ex officio President of tho bnard ; and, coupling this intimation with the subsequent request of the Govern or, and bearing in mind that of the two non clerical members, one had repeatedly declined the office of chairman, a fact which must have been known to all his colleagues, we can arrive at no other conclusion but that the drift of His Excellency's suggestion was that the Colonial Secretary should no minally — the Governor, himself, really — be chairman of...

PRICES OF MEAT AND FLOUR. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 26 December 1855

? -^p— ? ? . PRICES OF MEAT AND FLOUR. A cohbespovdext, a farmer, has addressed us at some length relative to the existing great disproportion between the price paid by the consumer for these necessaries of life, and that realized by the producer. He states, ' nothing strikes a stranger with more asionisnuieiifc man me uiuerenue existing in this colony between the price of wheat and flour — of producer's meat aud butcher's meat.' As regards meat, it is well known there is a superabundance in the Colony, and yet the market price of 7d and 8d is maintained. For every 1U00 sheep offered for sale not more than 100 are purchased by the butcher, and the graziers are becoming disheartened. If the market price was low, they might have some anticipation of a rise — at ali events, they could dispose of their surplus stock; but there is literally no market, and while the price of meat is so excessively dear throughout the Colony, the farmers are actually entreating the butchers to take their s...

The Sea of Azoff. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 26 December 1855

The Sea of Azoff. '*'' Despatches from Sir Edmund Lyons, da ted 30th Sept., have been received enclosing reports from Commanders Osborn and Crau furd, of the chtes of the loth, 17th, and 21st Sept., detailing the progress of the destruc tion of the enemy's stores in the Sea of Azoff. Commander Craufurd thus describes the complete annihilation of the vast fishing es tablishments at Crooked Spit, from whence the Russian army in the Crimea have hi'her to drawn their chief supply offish: — Having cleared the *}»it of some mounted troops who occupied it, I ordered a detach ment of boats, with their respective officers, to land and destroy the immense fishing es tablishments and nets found upon the point of it. The country seemed swarming with cavalry, but by the able management of the officers in command of the gun-boats, and by their good fire, they were effectually dri ven off the spit some distance inland. Having reconnoitred as far into the land as we could see from the masthead of t...

Miscellaneous. The garrison of Sebastopol numbers at this moment from 60,000 to 65,000 men. A correspondent writing on the 21st ult., says: — It has been noticed that in the larger Russian cemetery *o the west of the star fort a large obelisk has lately been erected.

EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE. Capture of the Mamelon and Quarries, On the 7th June. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 26 December 1855

EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE. Capture of the Mamelon and Quarries, On the 1th June. We have not hitherto had an opportunity of publishing a detailed account of the suc cess on the 7th of June, and believing that it may be interesting t© the majority of our readers, we insert the following from the the Illustrated London News of 23rd .Tnnp; — As we stated a fortnight ago, the bom bardment recommenced on the afternoon of the 6th instant. Our fire was kept up for the first three hours with excessive rapidity, the Russians answering by no means on an equal scale. On our side the predominance of shells was very manifest, and distin guished the present canonade in some degree even from the last. The superiority of our fire over the enemy became apparent at va rious points before nightfall, especially in the ltedan, which was under the especial attention of tlie Naval Brigade. The Rus sians displayed, however, plenty of deter mination and bravado. They lired frequent salvos at intervals of four o...

Drunkenness amongst the Officers. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 26 December 1855

Drunkenness amongst the Officers. I regret (says a correspondent) having occasion to mention the holding of court-martials during tbe past week on three officers for drunkenness, and the very painful fact of their having been cashiered in consequence. Soon after General Simpson's acces sion to the temporary command-in-chief three cases occurred in which the delinquents were ordered un der arrest; but, after administering a severe repri mand to each, the general permitted them to return *a »l*ni» *4tit«r A moolr latAr tliMiA rttfiorc tVAro orroitl MflJ liUCU Ut&bJ'. « nvVA «-»ti^& liUti-K v»u*t** *?%»&-; ngwua reported, and, one of them being one of the former trio, General Simpson resolved not again to extend a leniency which had failed to have a good effect before.

Four fisheries only have escaped destruction; the shallowness of die water did not allow our vessels to approach diem. The damage done to die enemy may be estimated at some millions. The fishery trade in the Sea of Azoff gives rise to a considerable export trade, which extends to Poland. The des truction which has been done will render it impos sible for this year.
