CAPTURE OF THE MALAKHOFF. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 23 January 1856

CAPTURE OF THE MALAKHOFF. If the French occupy the foreground, and ab sorb the chief glory of the triumph, it is not be cause the English were less valiant, but because they were less powerful. It cannot be expected that 30,000 men should reap the same amount of glory as 100,000. Fighting side by side, with equal courage and resolution, the utmost they could hope to win was their proportion of the   laurels ; and that they did this, under the most   unpropitious and appalling circumstances, is at tested by the panegyrics pronounced upon them   by their gallant Allies, and by the columns of   details we have collected in special reference to the attack on the Redan. That the attack failed was not the fault of those who were engaged in it. The bravery dis-   played by officers and men has never been excel-   led. The conduct of Colonel Windham, in that   interval of unparallelled horrors, was wo...

Russian Barbarities after the Battle of Traktir. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 30 January 1856

Bnssian Barbarities after the Bat tle of Traktir. ^Nearly 2,000 Russian officers and soldiers were received into die French ambulances after the bat tie of Traktir, (Tchemaya) on 16di August, yet General Pelissier had twice to complain that this work of humanity was interrupted by the fire from ?fee Russian batteries. General Pelissier says in his first note to Pnnce Gortscbakoff on the subject: — 'Your batteries on die Mackenzie heights persist in playing upon die parties we send forward. I point tins out to your Excellency in order that no one may hereafter be able to say that we left die wounded widtout succour or the dead without burial.' In a letter, dated the following day, he says to the Russian Generalissimo: — 'In spite of the pitiless fire of certain of your cannon, we have used our efforts to succour your wounded, and to bury a great part of your dead. Prince Gortsch*koffat length stated that — ?* The chiefs of the JIackenzie batteries nave declared to me that the^t did n...

COLONIAL NEWS. New Zealand. Auckland, 7th December, 1855. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 30 January 1856

COLONIAL NEWS. New Zealand. Auckland, 7th December, 1855. Scarcely had the excitement caused by the late elections cooled down when Auck land and its out-stations found a common danger upon them which quenched political feeling, and for the nonce gave folks some thing else to think of than old officialism and progress. The danger I refer to was occasioned by the rash act of an unfortu nate wretch — a -victim of intemperance — who in the emphatic language of the law ' at the instigation of the devil, and not having, the fear oi God in his eyes,' in an evil hour savagely took away the life of an inoffensive Maori woman, from whom he had received no provocation, and with whom it appears he had not previously been at variance. The murdered woman belonged to the Mokutu tribe, of which her father, it is said, is a leading chief, and at the time she met with her death was on a visit to a native woman named Taraata, who was living with the murderer, Marsden, as his wife. Marsden, it would s...

Ou tha two former, 'hejmay be^a good authority — en the latter,every person will probably form his own opinions. What Mr Golovin says of the reigning family, which is not, we believe, exaggerated, may astonish many of our readers: — THE CHIMES OF THE KOMANOFF HOLSTElJf. The' crimes of the Roman Empire were perpetrated through the ambition of a great many individuals. The crimes of the Rus sian empire are the work of one and the same family. Like Iran IV., Peter 1. murdered his sob by poison and bleeding. Thus Alexis con spired against his father on account of his intended marriage with Catherine, the wife of a Swedish dragoon, the mistress of Mar shal SheremetefF, and of Menschikoff; and indeed, when Empress, she continued her scandalous life.

Ballaarat. December 17, 1855. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 30 January 1856

Baliaarat December 17, 1855. Tbbbific flood akd loss of life. — An- other calamity has just Befallen -as, the foil mag nitude of which it mil be impossible for some time to ascertain. Sunday morning was remark able for its oppressive heat, and about one o'clock clouds, black and lowering, were to be seen rising in every direction. Shortly after three com menced a thunderstorm, the grandeur and vio lence of which but few who did not witness it can possibly imagine, and which, I regret to say, has been attended with immense loss of life and pro perty. The rain poured down in torrents, while hailstones the size of small marbles fell with a violence that baffles description. In a very short tame every creek and gully became a deep and impetuous stream. Still but little danger was anticipated, the season of the year giving con fidence in the belief that the fall would be but of short duration. For upwards of five hours, how ever, it continued without abatement, and it became evident that...

Who is to Command the British Army. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 30 January 1856

Who is to Command the British Army The Gazette of Tuesday evening contained a most extraordinary and unsatisfactory answer to that question which attracts, and deserves to attract at this moment the deepest anxiety of die people of England,— namely, who is to command the British army ? What General is now to maintain, and in some respects to restore, die ancient splendour of our military renown ? The country sees, and all Europe sees as well as this country, the real state of the case. We have sent out to the Crimea an army composed of troops not inferior m personal valour to any soldiers in die world, and who have shown on many occasions tbat whatever is possible to lie done by a given number of men will be done by them. But the superior ranks of die army have not yet brought to light a single man wbo has shown himself permanently able to direct the movements of that magnificent engine of war; hence die moral discipline of the troops and the confidence which every grade in the army...

Libels on our Veterans. Nobody can dispute that the talent generally dis : - played in the leading articles of the ' Times' news - paper Is very great; and yet many of diem contain sb much pure and unadulterated conceit and ' snob { '; 'bism' as can be met with in the whole range of the British Press. Take, for exanmle. its military articles, which upon an attentive perusal will be found to include more vulgar arrogance, malice, misrepresentation, and even unjust and ungenerous personalities, that could be crowded together in an . : equal space by any writer who did not regard the - Unitary Profession at large with the most unquali fied envy, hatred, and malice. True it is, that as a ; set-off, or sop to Cerberus, a few individuals are oc casionally singled out as objects for special ovations, and lauded to the skies: but on the other hand, : - many and indeed most of its greatest Generals, and ! its best and bravest Officers, relics of the last great -war, to whom the British Army ...

The ' Innkeeper of Abbeville' is open to the same ob jection as the ' Miller and his Men,' performed by the former Amateur Company ; it requires the 1^^| assistance of scenery, dresses, and a spacious stage -%~9m to make it effective, above all it requires that iha female ]flrts should be undertaken by women; The audience *p£# laugh at the most pathetic parts when they know the distressed heroine to be of J the male sex.

EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE To 26th October. STRENGTH OF SEBASTOPOL It may perhaps be in the recollection of our readers' that in the course of last spring we introduced to their notice what was then a remarkable communi cation, describing the interior of ScbastopoL It was a letter proceeding, from one of the American sur geons who had taken service under the Russian Go vernment, and its contents, however insufficient to satisfy the desires entertained on the subject, pos sessed great interest as for as they went. Since that time the subject has lost much of its novelty, for the Allies can now make a survey of Sebastopol for themselves; but in our impression of Monday last we published another of these letters, from which, considering the date of the communication, it is still possible to gather some interesting observations. The writer was Dr. John A. Morton, who repre sents himself as the only American surgeon then left at Sebastopol, and bis letter, which appeared in one of the United ...
