The Inquirer & Commercial News. Quid verum atque decens, curo et rogo, et omnis in hoc sum. WEDNESDAY, JANUARY, 30 1856. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 30 January 1856

The Inquirer & Commerdial News. Quid verum atque decensm curo et rogom et omnis in hoc sum. WEDNESDAY, JANUARY, 30 1856. The resolution of the proprietors of the Ge- raldine Mine to offer their valuable property for sale in the English market, cannot but be regarded as a favourable circumstance for this Province. It has long been evident that the capital of the Company was not sufficiently ample to permit of each exten- sive operations as would render the adven- ture either profitable to the speculators or advantageous to the Colony, and as the cir- cumstances of the community will not ad- mit of the prosecution of any speculation in- volving great pecuniary outlay, with a fair chance of a successful issue, we hail with satisfaction the prospect now offered of aug- menting the prosperity of the Colony by the profitable investment of English capital. Considering the difficulties with which the Company have had to contend, difficul- ties which were not sufficiently appreciated...

MR DIXON'S EXPLOITS AT ROCKINGHAM [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 30 January 1856

MB DIXON'S EXPLOITS AT ROCKINGHAM Ws have been at some pains to obtain from the best sources the whole of the particulars connect ed with the recent outrage at Rockingham, and lay the result of our enquiries before our readers. It will be recollected that Philip Dixon was an accomplice in the forgery of the will purporting to be that of the late John Hurford, and that he was the principal witness against the murderers, of Hurford ; in consequence of the evidence he gave on this occasion the Governor remitted the sen- tence of transportation for life which, he obtained for the offence of forging the will, and Dixon was afterwards sent to Rottnest. It appears that he was subsequently liberated, was seen walking about Perth, was reported to have something to do with the police, and eventually we find him at Rockingham. Discarding all that such a man might say as to his employers and the nature of his errand, we cannot but remember that there is undoubted proof of his having been previo...

Progress of the African Invasion. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 6 February 1856

Progress of the African Invasion. The successful navigation of the eastern branch of the Niger to a distance of two hundred and tifty miles above any previous ascent, without loss or se rious sickness among the crew, is an event pregnant with instruction and with hope. Not long since it was assumed, almost as settled and self-evident, that the seaboard of Western Africa was too deadly to European life for any success in penetrating it to be possible, and that to rencnr these expeditions was siinplv to waste money and men. The voyage of the rieiad has at once refuted the presumption and ren dered impossible the renewal of any such fatal at tempts as the Niger expedition of 1842. It ongkt also to teach us not to rest content with conclusions that are only presumptive, while auy pan of the world is closed against the scientific investigation or tbe industry of man. But it conveys yet greater lessons. From the ac count of the expedition, which we print in another page, it will be seen t...

How to Invest Money. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 6 February 1856

, ' I ? ? ' MM— ^— - .1 1 ; V H-?w to Invest Money. {Extract from the London Journal of Auc tions, June 1.] The great interest which bur discussion of this question appears to have excited, and the many re quests for further information which we hare re ceived, encourage? us to resume the topic. ' The reader will remember the conclusions at' which we have already arrived; but we repeat them briefly for the convenience of others. The order in which we should estimate securities for investment is as follows — placing first the in vestments which we look upon as the least secure or advantageous. 1. The Funds, because they will be subjected to great fluctuations as the war proceeds; and because the war will double the debt; and a double debt would be a bcrden to which there is not the least probability of submission on the part of the couu try. Besides, a revolution, which then would not be remote, will certainly purge out the whole debt 2. Railways- These are preferable to the funds fo...

Internal Communication. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 6 February 1856

Internal Communication Among those who have studied the physical geo graphy and resources of Australia it is universally agreed that the chief barrier to its progress is the scarcity of navigable rivers, and the consequent de ficiency of the means of internal communication. In this respect it is a remarkable contrast 'to North America, where navigable rivers abound more than in any other country. Yet in North America the rivers have not been found sufficient for the advan cing requirements of settlement and commerce, and it has been found necessary to complete the means of internal fntninnnicatinn hv railtravs an a scale unprecedented even in Europe. The results have been perfectly marvellous. To show the benefits obtained, it is only necessary to mention that the progress of Canada has been accelerated tenfold since the introduction of this great adjunct to its magnificent river system. Previous to the intro duction of railways, Canada was spoken of by her energetic neighbours towa...

THE WOOL TRADE. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 6 February 1856

THE WOOL TRADE. The raising of the rate of discount by the Bank of England to 5 per cent., and the continued high value of four and grain, have acted unfavourably on the wool market, and given the upward tendency of prices a temporary check. The imports of East India have been large, although showing a trifling increase on last year's receipts to the same period, and the tightness in the money market has had the effect of causing a slight reduction in blanket wools. Combing des criptions, with which the market is indif ferently supplied, are sot lower, and extreme value is obtainable to the close of the month. As far as can be ascertained at the scene of manufacture, the want of con fidence is caused by fear for the future, and not by any want of orders; a short time will remove the effects of the rise in the rate of discount, and we look for a good business at fully recent rates, stocks being light, and the general trade of the country healthy. Home-grown wools remain very firm; th...

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. MERCANTILE REPORT. Thursday evening, December 27, 1855. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 6 February 1856

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. MERCANTILE REPORT. Thnrsday evening, December 27, 1855. There is little briskness to note in trade generally for a Christmas week, which has been dull, but for the sale of the two sugar cargoes, ex Lochinvar and Elizabeth. These were submitted to auction to-day; the former, at Messrs. Samson, Wicksteed, & Co.'s sale, brought £25 5s. for brown, £28 7s. 6d. for yellow, £37 for raw white, and £43 5s. for Cos sipore, with £17 for Java rice; the latter, by Messrs. Botting & Townsend, realizing for low browns £25 to £25 15s., light brown, £28 to £28 15s. No. 1 Cossipore £43 5s., and Siam £37 10s. In both instances the sales were partial, several lots being withdrawn above the biddings. In flour there is no change to note beyond the turn in favour of the buyer below last weeks quota tions. Wheat is coming forward more freely, and obtaining 6s. 6d. to£7s. ; but unless a better demand for flour arises thpse prices cannot be maintained. J |With a public holida...

Wreck of the Schomberg. To the Editor of the S.A. Register. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 6 February 1856

Wreck of the Schoinberg. To the Editor of the S.A. Register. Dear Sir, — You will no doubt, have heard of the royal mail ship Scliomberg being on shore about 30 miles to the west ward of CapeOtway. As she lay directly in my course to Adelaide, I thought it my du ty to pay her a visit, if peradventure, I could render any assistance in saving lives or property. In the course of the afternoon of Friday we arrived within a short dis tance, the weather being then fine. I pro ceeded on board, and found her lying in a most perilous position. The following ac count of the disaster is given me by Capt. Forbes, who, poor fellow, feels his position a sad one: — About midnight on Wednesday the 26th instant, fitie weather; light easterly wind. Sighted the land about three miles eastward of his present position. Put the ship about on the off shore tack. When the sails had scarcely been filled, it fell quite calm ; and from the prevalence of easterly winds, the current was running strong to the we...

Correspondence from the Camp Monday, September 17. — There are signs of a speedy move. The French are gradually breaking up their old camps, aud leaving the positions which they occupied in from of Sebastopol. Already, two days- after the fall of the south side, the Division Autemarre (1st division of the First Corpse? Armee), and two Regiments of French Cavalry, went down to Baidar. They were soon followed by the division Espinasse (3rd division of the second corps), for merly Eacuchenx. The division Dulac (4th division second corps), and Aurclie (2nd division of reserve), came likewise down the day before yesterday to the plain, and occupied the hillocks where* the Turkish redoubts were last year. They remained there yesterday, and went this morning towards Baidar. i The Bnssians, on their Fide, use this respite to make dispositions for the defence of the northern plateau. For some days after ahe evacnation of the town the opinion 'became prevalent that the Russians intended to wi...

The Baltic. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 6 February 1856

The Baltic A brief telegraphic despatch from Hamburg states that on the 27th Sept. six English vessels appeared before Riga, and for several hours bomb arded the batteries ef Duuamunde and Yirrage Doullen.

The news from the fleet is, like the fleet itself, becoming less and less every week. All the high-pressure block-ships have already left for England, so that out of the whole fleet which was employed at the bombardment of Sweaborg, some six weeks since, only about one-hall' is cow pre sent in the Baltic. The season is evidently breaking up very fast, and the heavy and sudden storms so_ prevalent in norlhern climates at this season of 'the year render it extremely dangerous ibr the larger vessels to remain much longer, es pecially in a sea like the Baltic, where, with the greatest care and c...

: ? Sebastopol. Mnch of the accumulated dirt in the Karabelnaia is fast disappearing, under the direction of die com mandant, Colonel Wyndham. The French have al ready established depots and commissariat magazines, and allotted and marked various offices in their ride of die town. English fatigue parties are actively engaged in digging and filling np holes and irregu larities in die Woronzoff-road,as it passes along die Left Ravine to go into Sebastopol. The shot and ehell which are so tirickly strewn along diis ' Valley of die Shadow of Death,' are placed among the broken stones intended to repair the road, and as loose soil or clay, or whatever may be at hand, is afterwards laid on to make a smooth surface, it ap pears well enough just now. What the horses may think of die slippery shot, when die clay is converted into mud, is another matter. At present die weather continues dry, though very chilly.
