NEW SOUTH WALES. NOVEMBER. 30. The Mnx8.— Messrs. Barker & Co. Consider able importations of ionr and wheat have lately taken, place. Some cargoes have gone on to the Victoria market, and those which remain are yet mkold. Several vessels are yet expected with further supplies. A few samples of our own new crop have been offered, and from every district the accounts are HKist promising. These combined have caused a reduction .in the flour.

EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE. Critical State of Naples. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 9 January 1856
EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE. Critical State of Naples. f From the Economist.^ In the Sonth of Italy affairs seem to have reached a crisis which warrants tbe belief that a convulsion may every moment take place. The wretched King of Naples and his brutal and absurd Minister of Police, not content with manifesting their Russian sympathies as plainly as they dare, appear bent upon trying an experimentttm cruds upon the patience and long-suffering of the people. There are few extremes of steady tyranny that wonld not be endured there in silence; the upper ranks are not, as a body, either very energetic or very liberal; the middle, classes have long been broken in to slavery and silence; the army has, till lately, been a sort of spoilt child of the Sovereign; and the populace, content with sunshine and maccaroni, feel no sense of oppression and no desire for freedom, and are always ready to shout and sometimes to fight for a Monarch who cajoles them and a Govern ment which spares them. The lan...

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. MERCANTILE REPORTS. DECEMBER 12, 1855. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 9 January 1856
SOUTH AUSTRALIA. MERCANTILE REPORT. A DECEMBER 12, 1855. The reaping of the wheat harvest in early soils on tbe plains is now general, and the grain has come forward in sufficiently considerable quantities to en* able us again to commence the export of flour. The few cold days accompanied with night showers, have had the effect of delaying the maturity of the grain n some grounds hut notwithstanding this, nothing has been experienced to deteriorate the quality of the crop, which appears everywhere to show a good average of strength, with a full yield. Large parcels of wheat have been sold at 12&, and buyers look now for a lower figure, as it becomes more abundant. There are Etill holders of old flour asking £50, but new is selling at £38 to £40, aud is in favonr with tbe trade. The strange anomaly ap pears this week of an importation of flour, whilst the same day exports of the new crop are going for ward; pat there is no doubt that we shall now be in dependent of any furthe...

@%3 Jmjuhicti & ^ommcr^ial Dtfds. Quid verum atqtte decens, euro et rogo, et otaiusinhoc sum. WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 9, 1856. When, a short time since, it became our duty to direct the attention of the public to the feet that the Governor had exercised over the Guildford Bench of Magistrates an influence not only improper but uncon stitutional, we charitably hoped that, having erred in ignorance, His Excellency would, upon the impropriety of such interference being pointed out, have refrained from (what cannot be considered by Englishmen otherwise than) the illegitimate exercise of power. It is with regret we find that our too sanguine expectations have been disap pointed, and that the Governor has deter mined to pursue the obnoxious course which he then initiated. Had he adopted our sug gestions — suggestions which were endorsed by every well-wisher to His Excellency — he would not have received the mortifying check of Friday last. Let us proceed to analyse this case and its an...

Local and Jamestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 9 January 1856
Local and Domestic Intelligence. Mr. George Leake, who was committed for &nbsp; contempt of Court on Friday, was liberated at the solicitation of friends, after a few hours in- carceration, by the spontaneous act of the court. Dixon, the informer in the Hurford murder case, has been committing himself on the road between Fremantle and Mandurah. He entered the house of Mr. Herbert of Rockingham, and attempted, though unsuccessfully, to bully him out of his arms. He was finally expelled from the house, when he proceeded to Mrs. Hymas' and be- haved himself in an unbecoming manner. At Herbert's he represented himself, so we are i- formed, as a policeman, sent by Hogan, to make inquiries about a murder, said to be committed in the neighbourhood. We understand that a war- rant has been issued for his apprehension upon a very grave charge, and hope he will ere long meet his deserts. It will be observed that this ruffian stated, that he was acting in connection with the police, and...
