WESTERN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 16 December 1854

WESTERN AUSTRALIA. v.We have a file of Perth papers to the 17th November, but no one looks for im- portant news from that division of the in- land continent. The colonists were anxious to learn who was to betljeir new Governor. The Perth Gazette says that Mr. Henry Martin, of Adelaide, has contracted with Mr. William Peri ree Chffoid, of Banbury, for the supply of timber for the use of the Adelaide City ^nd Port railway, at a price of, we believe, £8 per load. Speaking of ' the expedition to explore the interior of New Holland, the same oin nal remarks . - The gathering point is Moreton Bny, from whence it will be com eyed by ship to the Gulf of Carpentaria, and commence inland exploration from the Victoria ii\er, the \essel being engaged in the marine survey.

SOUTH AUSTRALIA W e havye received papersv from South Aus- tralia into the 4th instant.-     On the 30th Nov., the question of pen- sions was discussed at great length in the Legislative Council, on the motion for an allowance in lieu of pension to Capt. Lip- son, the harbor-master. The evil of estab- lishing a pension list in a young country was ably and forcibly dealt with; and it was ultimately agreed to establish a superanuation   fund on the Indian system. ' On the 1st December, Mr. Kingston asked in his place in the House whether any clerk in the Registrar-General's department was editor or contributor to the Adelaide Times; and the Colonial Secretary said   that one of the clerks had occupied his leisure by writing articles for the press as freely as in any other manner.   A bill for regulating the medical profes- sion was read a second time on the same day.   We append ä few extracts from the paper...

CENTRAL AFRICA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 16 December 1854

CENTRAL AFRICA. News of Dr. Barth from Timbuctoo has recently reached his father at Hamburg. Dr. Earth's letters, dated in December last, were transmitted across the desert in caravans to the Mediterranean shore of Africa. One of them commences thus : - I am still kept here in this city, with its mixed and various population and its numerous masteis, each of whom strives to assume as much authority as possible. Like a helpless vessel (îriftingon the ocean, am I thiown about in a sea of uncertainty betwix- the power and passion of conten- ding parties, withont pobscssing a moment's rest or quiteness. Every day brings with it something new, now of astisfactory charac-< ter j- then again the reverse.

THE WAR IN ASIA. (From the Times Constantinople Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 16 December 1854

THE WAR IN ASlAi. (From tht Timís Constantinople Correspondent.) Genoral Guyon has been finally recalled from Kars. Ile is or was a good soldier, but the dislike with which he is reg.it ded by the officers makes his recall necessary, even if undeserved. Colonel Williams, an English officer, has gone to Kars, to attempt some- ire-organization of the army; but there have been so many of these hopeful projects that the world has grown incre- dulous. He will probably find himself powerless, and return home before lcmg. He is to be followed, I believe, by some of the English amateur Bashi-Baaouks. Selim Pacha, who lost the'tattlo of the 29th July, arrived about a week ago in great disgrace. Ile is a very good Pacha of the old school, and dues not deserve punish- ment so much ns they who trusted him with an army. He harangued the passen- gers in the Trebizonde boat, in extenua- tion of his failure. He said, " The Rus- sians attacked my army, but it Was not my fault ; for I was asleep in t...

ENGLISH FUNDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 16 December 1854

ENGLISH FUNDS. October 4, 1854.--The Money Market it still thinly attended, the speculators have little specula- tion about them, and Consols have been very steady The anxiety that was felt about the severe drought   in the United States, and its possible influence on Our Cork Market, is wearing off. The loss has evidently been over-rated, and the quotations of wheat are falling at New York. The accounts   from Australia as to the prices of which goods are being sacrificed are disheartening and the com- mercial discredit is thereby increased in our Money Market. The rate of interest keeps up, the pressure   on the Bank for help continues, and the market for Exchequer Bills is heavy. There is small dimin- tion in the Bank return of the amount of gold in store of about £100,000, notwithstanding we have of late had large remittances from Australia. The capture of Sebastopol will, it is supposed, make no differcnce in the value of Consols. We have ...
