The Baltic Fleet- Projected De struction of Revel. i TJje Times correspondent, dating off the Island of Sesknr, August 24 to Sepie.T bir 2, writes as .fol lows: — ' - — - ^ ' The demolition of the arsenal of Swcaborg and its numerous stores of the munitions of war will, according to information which has reached me from a source entitled to belief, be speedily followed by an attack on another of the enemy's strongholds in the Gulf of Finland.

Critical Position of the Russians in the Crimea. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 16 January 1856
Critical Position of the Russians in the Crimea [From the Times, Sept. 18.] It is stated from Berlin, with an appear ance of probability, if not of authority, that fae Emperor of Russia, in communicating the intelligence of the fall of Sevastopol to his uncle, the King of Prussia, in a Tele graphic message, added emphatically that ?' Russia would never make peace upon such a defeat.' This declaration, if it be au thentic, is more consistent with the tone hitherto assumed by the Russian Govern ment than the ridiculous attempt of the principal Russian organ at Brussels to re present the evacuation of Sebastopol as a uuusumuiiucBuu&t; \n. uiiuuiijr genius, lugiiiy favourable to the interests of the Russian army and creditable to the strategical judg ment of Prince Gortschakoff. The evac uation of Sebastopol, and the manner in which it was accomplished without consider able loss, were undoubtedly creditable to Prince Gortscliakoff if he had no alternative left but the abandonmen...
SOUTH AUSTRALIA. MERCANTILE REPORT. DECEMBER 12, 1855. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 16 January 1856
SOUTH AUSTRALIA. MERCANTILE REPORT. DECEMBER 12, 1855. The reaping of the wheat harvest in early soils on the plains is now general, and the grain has come forward in sufficiently considerable quantities to en able us again to commence the export of flonr. The few cold days accompanied with night showers, have had the effect of delaying the maturity of the grain On some grounds but 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 12s., and buyers look now for a Lower figure, as it becomes more abundant There are still holders of old flour asking £50, but new is selling at £38 to £40, and is in favour with the trade. The strange anomaly ap pears this week of an importation of floor, whilst the same day exports of the new crop are going for ward; put there is no doubt that we shall now be in dependent of any further foreign ...
What will the Rusians do now? [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 16 January 1856
What will the RusianB do now? Being now on the north side, what will Rinee Gortschaboff doP He has nothing material now to defend that is worth defending. He had lie ships, the property, £he stores to preserve; bat these ate au gone—destroyed, or in possession of the allies. All that is valuable in the Crimea is ours ; and the nature of the place is a surety against our making use of Perekop for the pur pose 01 aavancuig on nussia. in case 01 a nir ther entry into the Czar's territories, that is not the road the allies will take. The work being done in the south, they may possibly be thinking of doing similar work in the north. To stand another siege on the north side of Sebastopol is not demanded even by a sense of honour. Gorts chakoft*nas no hope of dislodging us, and to con tinue his army in the position of our target would be a fault morally, and not in accordance with the obligations of strategy. By retiring he can add to the Russian forces where they can be use ful — on the T...

New Dynasty for Italy. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 16 January 1856
New Dynasty for Italy. The conduct of the improvised repnblican Go vermneuts, and of the .^iciiiau Govcrumeut, during the last revolution,, clearly prove that the Italians are wise and virtuous enough for the exercise of self-government. All that they require is to sink their mutual differences and distrusts in order to combine fur the great purpose of asserting their uuity and independence as a nation. There are dear practical heads and resolute hearts in abuu* dance in Venice, Bologna, Genoa, Messina, and Pa lermo, and generally in Piedmont, the States of the Church, and Siciiy. The resources of the Peninsula are greater than has been generally imagineil. In these days a disciplined, standing army is indispen sable to the assertion of the independence of nations. A fatal mistake has beeu engendered by tlie vic tories of the earlier revolutionary armies of France. It has been imagined that these ainiss were com posed exclusively of enthusiastic volunteers, new to arms. The facts ar...

The Inquirer & Commercial News. Quid verum atque decens, curo et rogo, et omnis in hoc sum. WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 16,, 1856. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 16 January 1856
Quid verumatgy&decens, euro etrogo, etomnisinhoesum WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 16, 1856. It is fortunate for the Colonists generally, but especially is it fortunate for this pro. vince that at the head of the Im perial Colonial department is placed a man like Sir William Moles^voi-th — a philosopher, a scholar, a reformer, a man who has but for a short time borne official harness, and who is therefore unlikely to be tramel led by the impediments of official routine ; who has made the history of the Colo nies, their wants and their desires, his study, and the redressment of their wrongs his practice, and is therefore likely to exercise his authority to advance them in political and social prosperity, rather than to depress them by tyranny, or disgust them by neg lect. With such a man the distant dependencies of the empire will not be considered as pro vinces to be coerced, but as budding nations, which require the friendly aid of Imperial power to develop their resources and to stren...
