ito$ Inquiry \ & ^mmt^tpi Ij^urs. Quid verum atgite deceits, curoetrogo, etomni&inliacsum. WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY, 20, 1856. The Lochinvar has indeed brought discou raging news for the Colony, for in the death of Sir William Molesworth, whose ante cedents were of a nature to warrant oar an ticipating the most satisfactory results from his management of the Colonial Office, we have received a heavy blow, and may safely state that, at the present juneturp, no more disastrous event could have happened. Sir William Molesworth having served a life-long apprenticeship to the study of Co lonial affairs, and having ever been a promi nent advocate for the extension of Colonial rights and privileges, and a steady and staunch champion for the redress of Colonial grievances, was, only a short period previous to-his lamented decease, placed in a position which enabled him to carry into effect his liberal and statesmanlike Colonial policy. In to-day's issue will be found an expressio...

RUSSIA. Berlin, Wednesday, Oct. 26. The Emperor of Russia is confined to his room. Various reasons are assigned as the cause of it. Some people assert that he had sprained his ancle : while others, on perhaps quite as good authority, state that he has gone mad, in consequence of the numerous disasters bis fleet and army have ex perienced, and the fear that Bnwsia will be re duced to the condition of a second-rat* power.

The principal items of war news are the capture of Kinburn by the allies, with 1,300 Russian pris oners, ^and the destruction of the fortifications of Otchakoff, on the mouth of the Dneiper. What most nearly affects these colonies is the death of the Secretary of State for the Colonies, Sir William Molesworth.

INDIA. We are in possession of the Friend of Jndia to October 25th inclusive, from which ?we make a few extracts: — Mutikt at Bolabtjh. — The authority assumed by military officers in India fre quently leads to tragical occurrences, in proof of which we may cite the following from the Friend of India: — 'Brigadier Mackenzie had for some time had an AfFghan, a converted Mahomedan, living in his compound. The lines occupied by the cavalry are near this man's house, and for some time past the men seem to have cherished a strong feeling both against the convert and the Brigadier. On Friday, the 21st September, this feeling betrayed itself in wets evidently premeditated. A number of men «id boys (forming a Hindoo proces sion) passed down the main road, playing and shouting in front of toe Brigadier's house. Hie sent orders by a peon to desist^ and finding them disobeyed, went oat him self! The rabble still refused to yield, and the Brigadier took two flags from two boys, and two swords f...

THE BALTIC FLEET. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 20 February 1856

THE BALTIC FLEET. The strength of the naval forces in the Baltic is gradually decreasing. The gun-boats, now under convoy ot die Hogue, left for England on die 8th inst. They were to proceed first to Faro sound, thence to Elsinore, Wingo Sound, and Chrisdansacd, with orders not to start from tbe latter port unless the wind was to be northward of west. In order to cessively, dieir heavy guns have been removed and placed on board tbe Royal George, Cressy, and Ed inbirrg. They Lave taken in a month's supply of provisions, water, &o, and dieir crews were paid die monthly allowance up to the end of last month. The fleet, lately so powerful and magnificent, is now reduced to little more than a squadron, consist ing of a few line-of-battle ships and some large steamers; and should the weather continue long as bad as it has lately been, it is not at all improbable that even some of the remaining vessels will be com pelled before long to seek a safer anchorage than is to be found in ...

To the Editor of ' The IininmER abd Cokmekcxai. Sews.' Sib, — There appears in your late paper, a para graph alluding to the proposed withdrawal of &e hiring depot frotn Albany. You seemed to express some doubt either as to whether tbe inhabitant&of this district would consider the loss of the depot of sufficient importance to call forth an effort to avert it, or as to whether they possessed sufficient spirit to remonstrate when they consider themselves unjustly treated. 'So remonstance has been made against this practical exclusion of the Plantagenet district, from all share in the be nefits of convict expenditure. . I beg to offer a fen remarks in explanation of this apparent want of effort. One principal, ingredient in tbe mixed feelings with which we look upon the removal of the convicts is, disappointment th...

RETIREMENT OF GENERAL SIMPSON. General Simpson is about to return to England, on account of increasing infirmities and ili-3iealtb. His successor is not known, but it is supposed he will be selected from the Generals sow in the Crimea. Sir William Molesworth died on the 22nd Oct., of low gastric fever. It is rumoured that Lord John. Russell will be Colonial Secretary. The trial oi Messrs. 8trahan,; Paul & Bates commenced on Friday, Oct. 26. Nothing from the Baltic. Consols 87 J to 88|. By some accounts it would appear that the Allies have taken measures also with reference to Perekop, an expectation which is alluded to by Prince Gort ehakofF, who says in one of his despatches that they are ' threatening Perekop;* but the obvious necessity of observing a prudential reserve in the communica tion of intelligence, precludes as from the means of laying the details before oar readers. It is certain, however, that the combined fleet has been put into motion, and the sphere of opera...

CAPTURE OP KINBURN. Admiralty, Oct. 28. The following telegraphic message has been re ceived from Rear- Admiral Sir E. Lyons, this day : ' Off the mouth of the Dnieper, Oct. 17, 1855. ' The three forts on the Enborn Spit, mount ing upwards of 70 guns, garrisoned by 1,300 men under General Kokonovitch, have this day capitulated to the allied forces. ' The day before yesterday a flotilla of gun ves sels forced the entrance into the Dnieper, and the allied troops landed on the spit to the southward of the forts ; thus, by their simultaneous opera tions, the retreat of the garrison and the arrival of reinforcements were effectually cut off, so that the foits being bombarded to the Bay by the mortar vessels, gun-vessels, and French floating batteries, and being closely cannonaded by the steam lineof battle ships and frigates (having only two feet of water under their keels,) were soon obliged to sur render. The casualties in the fleet were very few, but the enemy had 45 killed and 150 wo...
