Local and Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 20 February 1856

Local and Domestic Intelligence An enquiry was instituted at Rottnest relative to the late escape of the prisoners, and subsequent conflagration on that island. It was discovered that Philip Dixon had been instrumental in creating disaffection among the native convicts, and aided them in escaping. This notorious cha- racter has, at last, obtained some punishment for his many offences, having been sentenced to three years' imprisonment with irons. The fire was caused by one of the warders on the island, who attempted to dislodge the runaways by burning the bush.     The Venerable the Archdeacon left Perth on Wednesday last, and proceeded to Fremantle, where he will officiate on Sunday next. The church in that town has been much improved and enlarged by the recent alterations, and when we state that the greater portion of the funds thus applied was collected in Fremantle alone, we men- tion a circumstance in the highest degree credit able to the inhabitants o...

The Inquirer & Commercial News. Quid [?] verum atque decens, curo et rogo, et omins in hoc sum. WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 27, 1856. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 27 February 1856

§&3 Jnquir.cr. & Commercial j^rcs. Quid veram atque decens, euro et rogo, et omnisin hoc «oa. WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 27, 1856. These is no disguising the fact that in this Colony, at the present moment, a more than ordinary- degree of depression is felt, tem porary in its^nature, and arising from causes which are easy of explanation. By recent departures many settlers have left the colony, the greater part, we hope, for a short period, hut some who do not in tend returning, and other vessels on the eve of sailing, will convey from our shores no inconsiderable portion of its bone and sinew. This of itself is sufficient to create a feel ing of despondency. The numerous .sales that have taken place, the partings between friends, if bat for a time, are circumstances not calculated to enliven or inspirit, while the exodus of those who leave this province perhaps for ever, must directly injuriously affect the state of public feeling. And yet, at the present time, but few of t...

Ground for Alarm in Russia. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 27 February 1856

Ground for Alarm in Russia. From the Times, October 3. One of the immediate results of the termination of the siege of Sevastopol has been a rapid extension of the agitation and alarm, caused by the presence of the allied forces, to other parts of the Ilussiau em pire. As long as riebastopol stood- it was regarded as tbe bulwark of Southern Russia; the whole power of the invadinsr armies and fleets was concentrated against it, and the adjacent territories seemed shel tered from attack by the rcsistence offered on that single point. . But the destruction of tebastopol, or rather its occupation by the allied forces, is felt throughout Ivussia to be a huge breach in the de fences of the empire, and even the imagination of the Muscovite populace seems to have been struck by tho thought that no citadel or outwork can be held secure, since Sebastopol itself has been over thrown. It may be here remarked that, although prepara tions bad been made by the sappers and miners of the allied armi...

TO THE EDITOR OF "THE INQUIRER AND COMMERCIAL NEWS." [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 27 February 1856

To *« Edi^ob of ' The Inquirer abd COMKEEOAI.NEWS.' SIB, — I have been informed that it was stated at the Swan that a whale-ship, which lately pat in there after leaving this port, did so for the purpose of procuring potatoes. This led to the ^conclusion that there were no potatoes here and is therefore likely, if uncontradicted, to do considerable damase to our trade. I beg. there fore, to request your assistance to give publicity to the feft that there are tons and tons of pota toes, and plenty of other crops, still on hand here, notwithstanding that there have been several whale-ships already supplied, and that much of the crop was destroyed by grasshoppers. The whole counfay round here baa been burnt lately, wifli a view to getting rid of these vermin. The success of the experiment is doubtful, as some say the eggs are deposited on the swampy lands, which will not burn. WhOe writing to you, I may as well call at tention to the great injury done to the district, and to the Colony...

The Cost of Gold. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 27 February 1856

The Cost of Gold A correspondent of the Melbourne Morn ing Herald, writing from the diggings, has recently attracted attention by broaching some rather startling and novel doctrines as to the profitableness of gold -mining. He asserts that the colony is tending to bank ruptcy; that the great staple artick — gold — is raised at sl positive loss? that each ounce only realises seventy-five shillings, while to produce it costs five pounds; and that this loss is only met by the capital that is being constantly brought into the colony by newly-arriving immigrants. The reasoning' by which the writer endeavours to prove Lie position is as follows: — ' There are about 320,000 persons in the colony, of whom 150,000 are located on the gold-fields, and, making an allowance of 50,000 .for women and children, there are 100,000 en gaged in the production of geld. The mar ket value of the kind of labour required is about Ids. a day. But even let this be reduced one third, and assume the rate of pay...

The North Australian Exploring Expedition. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 27 February 1856

The North Australian Exploring Expedition. In a recent number of the Melbourne Argus we -find a despatch from the Duke of Newcastle to Sir Charles Hotbam, dated 5th February, 1855, enclosing a duplicate of a despatch addressed to Sir William Denison, relative to the expedition to explore the northern part of Australia. The despatch was oc casioned by the receipt of a lengthy communication from Captain Sturt, making several suggestions as to the best route to be adopted. This communication ra enclosed in the despatch, and, as the subject which it discusses is doubtless interesting to most of our readers, we subjoin ir. in fnlL A perusal of it will ?how that Captain Sturt suggests that the expedi tion had better commence operations at the mouth of the Victoria River, on the north-west coast, and not -at the Albert River, inthe Gulf of Carpentaria, and that Swan River would be the best place to organize the expedition and not Moreton Bay, since a long sea voyage is distressing to the a...

Condition of the Russian Army. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 27 February 1856

Condition of the Russian Army Ut the condition, of the Russian army en camped on the Belbek, nothing certain is known in the camp, but the generals have means of information, the nature of which, and the results, are not divulged. Now and then one gets a glimpse of the world beyond the adverse trenches. The pickets bring in some foot-sore, ragged, emaciated, sickly looking deserter, who tells a sad tale of want and suffering. Is he a Dolon or not? That is the question. The deserters who come in to the Sardinians are sent to our bead quarters, those who surrender to the TorkB are brought to the French Quar tier- Generate. The last two who arrived at General Simpson's were a Pole and a Bossian, and both of them were in such a condition as to excite the liveliest compas sion among our soldiers. Their clothes were in rags, and the fragments of their boots scarcely clung to their feet. They came from the army near Baidar, and they stated that the whole of the men were inthe same state; t...

IAD VER TISEMENT^—HoUoway's PiUs, a certain cure for determination of blood to the head. — The Rev. Elias Hope, of Angaston, Adelaide, suffered more than any one he ever heard of from determin ation of blood to the head, although he was most abstemious both in eating and drink ing, also in taking rest, yet he was so bad at times that in the midst of his most el oquent discourses he was compelled to leave off addressing his auditors. Having seen the good effects of Holloway's Pills, he was induced to give them a trial, and, to use his own words, they acted like magic. It is fourteen months ago since he commenced taking this celebrated medicine, which completely cured him in two months, and he has not had any return of this complaint since. These Pills are wonderfully effica cious in all disorders of the stomach and bowels. JUST PUBLISHED: LYRICAL POEMS, BY CHARLES WALKER. COPIES can be had at the Stores of Mr G. Marfleet, Perth.

This house lias been secured by the Government in. consequence of the existing barraoks not being sufficiently capacious to contain the whole of the recently-arrived detachment, whose numerical strength exceeds that of the 99th. On Wednesday last an accident occurred on the river, by which five lives were lost.

COLONIAL NEWS. Victoria. The attempt of Mr Wm. Nicholson' to form tne administration has proved a total failure. However unanimous certain parties in the Legislative Council appeared to be on the ballot questi-jn^-or rather, it is supposed, in their opposition to the late Ministry — that unanimity was changed in several instances to absolute hostility, when it was sought to embody members ot it in an isxecutn-e. It is not disguised that some of tbe gentlemen named in the annexed list expressed decided objections to act together; yet for a few hours the delusion existed that the new cabinet was absolutely formed of the following ma terials: -Chief Secretary — Mr Nicholson, retired tradesman; Attorney-General — Mr Chapman, bar rister; Solicitor- General — Mr Dawson, barrister; Treasurer — Mr Goodman, wine merchant and squat ter, and the chief advocate of the squatting interests; Trade and Customs — Mr Hellicar, merchant; Pub lic Works — Mr Miller, banker and money-lender; Surveyor-Gen...

Growth and Destiny of British North America. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 27 February 1856

Growth and Destiny of British North America. [From ♦' Nature and Human Nature,' by Sam Slick.] I had hardly entered these remarks iu my journal, and ascended the companion ladder, when the doctor joined me in my qoarter-deck walk, and said, ' Mr Slick, what is your opinion of the state of these North American colonies?' What a cu rious thing these coincidences are, squire, a'int they? How often when you are speaking of a man he unexpectedly makes bis appearance don't he? or if you are thinking of a subject, the person who is with you starts the same topic, or if you are 'going to say anything, he takes, as we mny say, the very words out of your mouth. It is something more than accident that; but what is it? Is it animal magnetism, or what is it? Well, I leave you to answer that question, for I can't. ' Their growth beats all. The way they are going ahead is a caution to them that live in Sleepyhol low, a quiet little place the English call Downing-street. It astonishes them as a you...

The Resources of the Russians. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 27 February 1856

The Resources of the Russians The various allusions recently made by the Emperor Alexander to Moscow and other scenes of heroic disaster have led very generally to the conclusion that the Rus 1 fiians, although driven from the Crimea, would still prolong, by every means in their power, the present exhausting war. We may easily perceive the political necessity, in a depotic country like Russia, for its rulers to pay any imaginable price for ulti mate victory, as upon the supposed invinci bility of their armies the whole political .system of the empire rests. It ia easy to say that the vast agglomeration of hetero geneous states constituting the huge em pire of the Czar might 6oon be torn to pieces by internal discord were the prestige of the grand army lost. On this ground the Czar stands much more in need of a victory than his invaders do, as upon the success of his arms depends, not only his position amongst the Powers of Europe, but the very existence of his unwieldy and ill-conso...

Correspondence. As a genera rule, we wish it to be understood tha we do not identify ourselves with the opinion or expressions of our correspondents. TO THE EDITOR OF "THE INQUIRER AND COMMERCIAL NEWS."   SIR,— I feel called upon to offer a few remarks in vindication of my character, and avail myself through the medium of your valuable journa to say a few words. This is my third visit t0 this Province. The first time I arrived from Shark's Bay, with part of a cargo of Guano. I was then asked by several, who pretend t0 know much   about the locality I had visited, as to the quan- tity of guano At once I gave them a faithful statement of all I knew; but, I regret to say, such was received with doubt, and much sus- picion entertained of the sincerity of my asser-   tions. Added to this, it was stated I had not been at the proper place, that I had not seen any natives, but had mistaken blackboys for those characters. Now, in this last trip, I did n...

Review. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 5 March 1856

%qmqss. (From the Press.) A Narrative of the Yacht Maria among the Feroe Islands in the summer of 1854. With Illustrations, London : Longmans. The reasons which induced the authors of this volume to select the Feroe Islands for a summer cruise will probably lead many readers to take up tlieir narrative. These islands are very little known. They are a group, situated in the Northern Sea, be longing to Deumark, and are so rarely visited that the inhabitants retain all the character istics of a primitive people; but the coast scenery is magnificent, and the condition of tbe natives not without interest from its ex treme simplicity, equally removed from the vicei of savage life and the evils which at tend civilization. The total population is between seven and eight thousand, and they support themselves chiefly by farming and fishing. The coasts abound in sea-fowl, which help to supply the natives with food, and their chief manufactures are knitted woollen jerseys and hose. One cause wh...

Some Gossip about Advertisements and Newspapers. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 5 March 1856

Some Gossip about Advertisements and Newspapers (From tite Quarterly Review, No. 198.^ By universal consent the world has accorded to the late George Robins the palm in this style of com mercial puffing. His advertisements were really artistically written. Like Martin, he had the power of investing every landscape and building be touch ed with an importance and majesty not attainable by meaner bauds. He did perhaps go beyond the Yielding line, even of poetical license, when he de scribed one portion of a paradise he was about to submit to public competition as adorned among other charms, with a ' hauging wood,' which the aston ished purchaser found out meant nothing more than a hanging gallows. But then he redeemed slight manoeuvres of this kind by touches which really dis played a genius for puffing. On one occasion he made the beauties of au estate eo enchanting, that he found it necessary to blur it by a fault or two, lest it should prove too .bright 'for human nature's daily foo...
