The Town of Nicholaieff. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 13 February 1856

The Town of Nicholaieffi The Emperor of Russia, it is said, is on his way to Nicbolaieff— -and the Archduke Constantine has already arrived tiiere — to see witii his own eyes what measures can be taken to render diat stronghold strong enough to resist, die tide of battle which has swept over die august city of Sebastopol, and driven his myriads from its defences. Such an at tempt can hardly be attended with anything like die success which, for a time, marked the defence nf Sehastonol becanse Nlcholnieff -TTherson^ has neither die natural advantages of Sebastopol, nor has it received anytiiing like die same assistance from military science. It stands, however, next in im portance to die captured stronghold, and, as die re taking of die latter is hopeless, die fortification of die second military position is a natural step. Kherson was, in fact, originally designed to be die principal station of the Russian navy in the Black Sea. It was founded in 1778, on the right bank of die Iimon,...

Qui& vtrum attpte. decent, euro et rogo, et oamU in hoe sum, WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY, 13, 1856. The three gentlemen who now constitute the Board of Education have addressed a document to His Excellency the Governor, which they term their Annual Report If we have not been accustomed, in former reports to meet with literary productions of the highest possible order, we have, at all events, found that the suggestions, opinions, and observations of the Board have been clothed in appropriate language. The pre sent report is published in today's issue, and we invite its perusal by our readers. It is not improbable that they wiU agree with us that, as a literary composition, it is altoge ther contemptible. It is, however, open to far more serious objections; but, before we take these into into consideration, it will not be unadvisable to make a few remarks upon the present constitution of the Board. It consists of three members, of whom two are nonoffi cial and one official. Of th^e fo...

Victoria. DEATH OF THE GOVERNOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 13 February 1856

Victoria. DEATH OF THE GOVERNOR Our last summary of news firom Victoria con tained a brief announcement that Sir Charles Ho tham was recovering from an attack of English cholera. It would appear now that tiie anticipa tions of his recovery were tar too premature, and that the attack was of a far graver character than was at first anticipated. His Excellency died on the 31st December last At an early hoar on the morning of that day the following bttHetin was posted outside tbe Age office : — 'His Excellency has passed a very bad night, and lies in a very precarious condition. His physicians are in constant attendance upon him. His Excel lency's illness commenced in an attack of English, cholera, and he is now labouring under a complica tion of dysentery, epilepsv, and paralysis.'' Agejp&ce, half-past 8 'o'clock, iun.

COLONIAL raWS. TASMANIA By the Windsor, troop ship, we nave re ceived » few newspapers. The EjmJpeau Intelligence is to the 19th October. We extract such items as may be interesting; also, the particulars of the death of Sir Charles Hotham, and other Colonial In telligence.

An address to the officers, non-commissioned officers, and soldiers of the 99th Regiment, had been unanimously adopted at a public meeting.

Local and Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 13 February 1856

Local and Domestic Intelligence. Green, of the "Cricketer's Arms," has had to   appear at the police court, charged with serving on Sunday. The case was dismissed, it being clear that the persons supplied were travellers. These charges, although troublesome to the land- lord, all tell eventually in his favor, and against the police, for both magistrates and juries will, naturally, be inclined to receive with suspicion the evidence of men who prefer charges so hastily.     We have every reason to believe that there will be as good a show of fruit and vegetables at the Horticultural Meeting, on Friday, as can be pro- cured at this season. We have heard of many who intend to contribute, and there is little doubt but that every one will try and do his best to- wards assisting to make a creditable show on the occasion. It is anticipated that there will be a great gathering of the settlers and their families, and that the day will be, to all intents ...

-w- Qoioaei Sawliiiscn m on Assyrian Antiquities Colonel Rawlinson, the well-known Assyrian ex plorer, and who is an officer of a Bombay native regiment, has been received with great eclat by the Asiatic Society of Bombay, at which place he arrived from Bapriad, on his way to England, with a collec tion of Chaldean Assyrian and Babylonian antiquities intended for deposit in the British Museum. On this occasion all the rank and science of Western India, headed by the Governor, Lord Elphinstone, mustered to do honour to the learned and gallant officer, who took the opportunity of giving a long and interesting account of his latest researches and discoveries, illustrated by the collection of antiquities which he had brought* with him. The most ancient of these were Chaldean relics, which were found in die ruins of the ancient Ur of the Chaldees and other places mentioned in ecriptnre, and which extended from die twentieth to the thirtieth century before Christ Gome of the cuneiform ins...

#asse. A private match for £5 — between Mr Guerin's Sultana and Mr Locke's Seppo came off recently on the Vasse race coarse. It was thought, in con sequence of its being a short race — mile and a distance — that Seppo would stand some chance, but the mare came in an easy winner. Another race between Mr Ker's G-arrogin, Mr Hepping etone s JXotice, and & horse ot Mr Locke s, name not given, was won by G-arrogin.

Odessa. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 20 February 1856

Odessa. Odessa again escapes, but only, it would appear, because the armament of the Allies has a greater game in view than the des truction of a city which could be — and can be^-demolished when the Commanders of the fleets have three days to spare. Eighty vessels were counted by the watchman on ihe fire-tower of Odessa, and the town gave itself up for lost. But its relief must have been unspeakable when, on Sunday, the 14th, the fleets departed without flinging a single shell into the Empress Catherine's city. They quitted the roadstead, aud cast auchor three miles from Kinburn, a name that would seem rather to belong to some Scottish glen than to a point on the Euxiae Sea. Of the subsequent operations we will speak presently. There are two solutions which will apply to the present proceedings of the Command ers, previously to offering which, let us say a few words in explanation of the situation of the fleets.

The eye of every stranger, who casually visits our shores, is equally delighted and sur prised by the variety, the beauty, and the abun dance of our fruits. It is, therefore, nd matter of surprise that, from the first establishment of this Colony, a more than usual attention has been directed to horticultural pursuits, as well by those whose leisure has per mitted them to find in their gardens a source of pleasing and healthful recreation, ...
