Cultivation of the Tobacco Plant. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 16 January 1856

Cultivation of the Tobacco Plant. We have been obligingly favoured by Mr. Skelton, of this city, with the Washing ton Patent Office Report for 1850, from which we extract the following correspon dence on the subject of the cultivation of the tobacco plant: — CULTIVATION OF FLORIDA TOBACCO.. Washington, April loth, 1850. Dear Sir — I enclose you a letter upon tl;e culture of the Florida tobacco. This tobacco is sold in market at a price varying from 15 to 75 cents a pound, and occasionally'l believe a higher price has been obtained. _ I ah- send you a diary of meteorological observa tions at St. Augustine, made during the last winter, which may be interesting- to you. St Augustine is is in the northern part of the peninsula of Florida. The peninsula extends into a latitude entirely be yond the region of frost. Altogether the best sugar and sea- island cotton country in the United States is on that peninsula. The lands are very fertile, and at present cheap; the climate agreeabreand h...

On her return, with the wind in her favour, she took (me hour and. twenty minutes. This speed may perhaps be augmented by alterations in the machinery. Daring some former trips she went faster for the time, but then it became necessary so halt to get up fresh steam, and the time thus lost more than counterbalanced what was gain ed in speed when she was in motion.. It is con jectured that the substitution of round for square cylinders may have the effect of inr-raaglng hex speed. Be this as it may, it is evident tiiat for general purposes her present rate is insufficient.

The Inquirer & Commercial News. Quid verum atque decens, curo et rogo, et omnis in hoc sum. WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 23, 1856. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 23 January 1856

Quid vertun atgue deems, euro et rogo, et omnis in hoe sum. WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 23. 1856. The time has} at_ last arrived when it be comes the duty of the Colonists to demand representative institutions similar to those enjoyed by our neighbours. We no longer receive the grant in aid from Parliament, the hitherto sole bar to our obtaining that privilege, and are now ready to take under our own management the administration of the government of the Colony. Under ordinary circumstances we might have been content with the knowledge that, the right of organizing a responsible govern mnet was ours, and that it was merely ne cessary to express a wish to avail ourselves of that right to ensure its concession. Con tented with thus much we might have ie solved to await the lapse of a year or two before we took any active steps in the mat ter, but recent events have demonstrated that if we delay longer we shall cease to de rive those advantages from constitutional go vernment which have been en...

The Kitchen Gardener's Guide is in tended to famish, in the course of four monthly parts, ' a concise treatise on the soil, seasons, and climate of Victoria, and the culture and manage* ment of vegetables.' It is significant of Hits in creasing interest which our population take in the cultivation of the soil that so many of our new pub lications should be addressed to the discussion of horticulture. The subjoined directions for garden ing operations for the month of September mil ena ble our readers to judge of tbe merits of this new claimant of their attentions: — Although, astronomically speaking, in accordance with our chronological cycles, the Australian spring commences in August, there are such changes and vicissitudes in our climate and seasons, that for or dinary purposes die 1st of September may be ge nerally accepted as the cotnencement of the new horticultural year.

' ? i The Board appointed to report upon the naviga tion of the River have recommended fender piling on the north bank, near the old feny point, ss a temporary measure to prevent the further en croachraent of the River, until other works of more importance can be decided on. The small cban- { nelopenpd through the bar, near Rouse's Head, by Mr. Trigg, in 1838, has been examined, and, not withstanding a report to the contrary, was found to be perfectly clear and free from Band deposit.

India. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 23 January 1856

India. A Russian spy has beeu detected and put into dsress by the Cabool authorities. A religious war has broken out in Onde, the king of that misgoverned state being snpported by tbe Hindoos, wliile the Mahometau population side with the rebels. The latter were defeated by a force, under Capt. Barlow, an English officer, attached to the k ing of (hide's army. The rebels fought desperately. Capt. Barlow was compelled to detach, his Mahome tan soldiers, retaining bat one gunner, who, being observed to derate his piece so that the shot passed over the heads of the enemy, was sabred by tiie Hindoos. The struggle has not ceased nor is it likely to do so for some time. The Governor-General has visited Madras, where he was received with every demonstration of loyalty aad respect. We see no allusion to the Santhai insurrection and presume, therefore, that it has been suppressed From Tennyson's Idyl ' Tne Brook.'
