[ADVERTISEMENT.] Sbllowai/'s Pittshave again triumphed overevery other Medicine. — Interesting Case1.! ! — Miss Emily Walton, aged 17, Launceston, V. D. L., suffered much and often from sick headaches, tottering of the limbs, numbness of the whole body, and other symptoms which very much ' alarmed her fond parents, the actual name and nature of the com plaint puzzled every one it bore such a variety of aspects, and consequently there were a variety of opinions npon the subject. Three months ago the mother boldly went to work with Holloway's Pills, which very quickly performed their part, for in six weeks the young lady was in possession of the most robust health ; after every advice and medicine had failed.

The Inquirer & Commercial News. Quid vers[?] atq[?]se dece[?], curo ct Togo,ct om[?]is loc [?] WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY, 6 1856. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 6 February 1856

Quid vena* atgae deceaa. euro et Togo, et omait in ftoc sum. WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY, 6 1856. The immense consumption of spirituous and fermented liquors in tbe Australian Co lonies has been a matter of surprise to many, and regret to all, who interest them selves in the social welfare of their fellow men. To those, however, who give the subject due consideration, the fact does not appear so astonishing, and however much they may lament the excessive consumption of wines and spirits, the causes which lead to results so deplorable are not altogether inexplicable. It is universally admitted that drunken ness is our grand national vice, and that its principal check in the parent state is the the poverty of the mass of spirit-drinkers. This check does not exist in the Australian colonies, the labouring population having much surplus capital at tkeir disposal. The price of labour is high, and the recipients, being in most instances emigrants from the mother country, naturally apply such por ...

The Sultan Taxedtaurus and Grand Vizier Parmarstoon. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 6 February 1856

The Sultan Taxedtaurus and Grand Vizier Pannarstoon. In Dickens' Household Words we find the follow ing clever political hit: — ' Among the ancient Kingsof Persia who extended tbeir glorious conquests into the Indies, and far be yond the famous River Ganges, even to tbe limits of China, Taxedtaurus (or Fleeced Bull) was incom parably the most renowned. He was so rich that be scorned to undertake tbe humblest enterprise without inaugurating it by ordering his treasurers to throw several millions of pieces of gold into the dirt. For the same. reason be attached no value to his foreign possessions, but merely, nsed them as playthings for a little while, and then always threw tnem away or lost mem. i nowise amura, muugu blessed with innumerable sources of happiness, was afflicted with one fruitful cause of discontent.

America -i*id the Americans. By W. XLBaxxbb, Esq., M.P. It w-is a wild theory of the Abb£ Baynafc that the human race degenerates in the new world. That it does not degenerate physically, vrtt tnre Hr. Baxter's testimony: — I was exceedingly struck with die remarkable sta ture of the men who inhabit the Mississippi valley: they are perfect sons of Anak. In Kentucky you meet few undet six feet two or three inches; and while standing at the bar of the hotel in Louisville, I was startled by the apparition of a giant measuring seven feet nine inches in his stockings. That the human race does not degenerate intellec tually, we have convincing proof (if any be neces sary) in the Bibliographical Guide. The first printing-press was established in Cambridge (Mass.) in 1639; while in England, the first typography ex ecnted at Kuchester, bears date 1648; at Exeter, 1662; at Manchester, 1732; and at Liverpool, 1750.

The Times aid the Newspaper Stamps Duties B3L — ' Under the law now before Parliament, it is not impossible that we may be compelled to raise our price above tbat of other papers, for die postal part of the circulation. Bnt it is not only a p'ublio question, but a political one.

The Interior of Sebastopol Wednesday, Sept. 12. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 6 February 1856

The Interior of Sebastopol Wednesday, SL-pt. 12. The wonder of all visitors to the ruins of Sebas topol is divided — they are astonished at the strength of the works, and that they were ever taken ; they are amazed that men could have de fended them so long with such ruin around them. It is clear in the first place that the fire of our ar tillery waa searching out every nook and corner I in the town, and that it would become utterly im possible for the Russians to keep auy body of men to defend their long line of parapet and bat tery without such murderous loss as would speed ly annihilate an army. It is quite evident that the Russian, who is no match for the allies in the open field, has been enabled to sustain the most tremendous bombardment ever known, and an eleven months' siege, that he was rendered capa ble of repulsing one general assault, and that a subsequent attack npon him at four points was only successful at one, which fortunately happened to be the key of his position,...

Correspondence. TO THE EDITOR OF " THE INQUIRER COMMERCIAL, NEWS." [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 6 February 1856

ft^~As a general rule, we wish it to be understood that we do not identify ourselves with the opinion or expressions of our correspondenti. ? ?+? ? To the Editor of ' Tax Inqeibeb ahd Commercial News.' SIR,— As this colony has become a penal settlement, it is our duty to encourage the industry and assist the settlement of the ticket-of-leave men who are now forming a large proportion of our popula tion. The marriage and settlement of the most re spectable and industrious of the ticket-of-leave holders, I think, would be conducive not only to their personal comfort, but to the welfare of the whole community in a social and moral point of view. The removal of any obstacle in the iurth.er ence of this object is a point of no slight impor tance. The present arrangement for granting permission to ticket-of-leave men to marry is cer tainly a very vexatious one. The ticket-of-leave man. who may wish to take a wife, has to apply to the resident magistrate for permission to marry ; the resid...

Wel lington makes a polite grimace at her pre sumptuous friend, and bustles His Excellency into a ready-made Government House, a little the worse for wear, and rather shaky from recent earthquakes. Taranaki stands perplexed, and, with Captain Macheath, exclaims, 'How happy could I be with either!' Of the two she looks most lovingly on AacklaxuL Canterbury and Otago proceed quietly on their way, and wisely avoid bothering themselves in the matter. Doubtless when the Council meet there will be a stiff fight for the change, but disunion amongst the foreigners will render- Auckland safe. The Governor has not yet returned from his vi...
