THE LATE " DUCHESS OP SUSsLx.," -As the fact is becoming the matter of general discussion, teat in the event of the death of the King of Hanover, and of the Crown Prince, his son, the question cf tile title of Sir Augustus D'Este to the throne of thnt kingdom will create some controversy, the following letter from her Royal Highness (the Cousress of Ameland) to Sir S. Dillon, will not be uniote csti g. It is dated so long back as December 16, 1811:- "* My dear Sir-I wished to have answered your last letter, but having mislaid your first, I did not know how to direct to you. I am sure you must believe that I am delighted with your pamphlet; but I must confess I do not think you have stated the fact quite exactly when you say (pace 25) ' that the question is at rest between me and the Duke of Sus. rex, because the connection has not only been de. clared illegal by sentence of the Ecclesiastical Court, but has been dissolved by consent-that I have agreed to abandon all claims to his na...

GENERAL EDUCATION. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Chronicle — 11 October 1843
A GENERAL EDUCATION. NiXT to the blessings of Religion, and .a good form of Government, an approved system of " Edu. cation" is of the greatest impurtance to every member of society, and to the Commonwealth at large. That the-kind of education generally to be had in the byegone days of this colony was not as good as should be desired, is not at all aurpriinog, considering the materials of which the great mass of he inhabitants and the generality of the Teachers were composed. The matter for surprise, is, that there should be any thing bordering on a good education, rather than that it should be so defective. We canoct concur with Dr. Lano, in one part of his intended " Resolutions," "that the present denomloational schools are ' totally' inadequate to meet the wants of the colony." We admit that they require to be improved, but we'maintaid' that "some" of them are efficient, nay, very etlici?nt, and we refer with pleasure to the three large Roman Catholic Schools, now conducted by t...

WATERING THE STREETS. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Chronicle — 11 October 1843
WATERING THE STREETS. - Sea.According' to the experiments made, by Dalton, the evaporation of water from a amall surface, at a temperature of 180 degrees (which may be taken as the heat of the sun in this latitude), :under apressure of 1616 (which may be taken as nearly the pressure of the atmosphere),-is 15 grains per minute. If the small surface be taken as containing one square foot,* anudthe number of square yards to be watered 100,000, and if we suppose 'the barrel of water to weigh one ton, the evaporation of water in each minute will be one barrel.; And if the average time of'illing and discharglogýeach barrel be taten at 60 minutea, the number of carts reqisred would be'the same, and if the cost of each per day be 10s. the expense for half (180 days) would b.'e 6400. If the smal?l aurface'be taken as containing one fourtht of a square foot,' and which no doubt from the nature of the elperimeot is nearer the fact, both the evaporutiou and expense would be increased in like pr...

D? IgtatltL QOWeCýspoolr n o1nce -o THE LABOURER IS WORTHY OF HIS HIRE. To the Editor of the Morning Chronicle. S n-.Having lately seen a letter in theHe rold,' from Mr. George M'Leay, stating that he had ad. vertised several times for ten shepherds, and that onily two had applied for the situations; he says that proves there is no: a suayciency of labourers in the colony. Now thie fact is notorioue that there is not only a sofficiency, but that thereis a superahbun. dance of labourers in the" market at Fresent. Buit most of the labourers have very great objections to go far up the country, and for a'very just re'ason for what is? or where can there be 'a greater:di&. appointment to that man who leaves his native land and comes sixtee~n thousand miles to better his'con dition in life, to go to the bush, an exile from society; there to live unknowing and unknown, there to earn his bread with the double sweat of his brow, with=; out any consolation whatever but the hope (thai ...

AUSTRALIAN WOOL.

PROGRESS OF TEMPERANCE.—GREAT TEA PARTY. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Chronicle — 11 October 1843
PROGRESS OP TEMPBRANOE.-GREAT TEA PARTY. Tas advocate for " total abstinence" from intox. loating drinks, is the soundest " Political Econo. mist;" his system.of "' retrenchment" in the expen diture of his finances is an excellent model for our Members of Council, who seem determined to " go the whole hog," in cutting down the pay of public officers. The '! Teetotaller" cuts off whatever is usseless-or noxious.in his " drink," and expends his. little means on wholesome "solids;" so'should the economical financier cut off all useless salaries, but should take care not to apply his pruning knile too close to the wages of those who do the " solid" work of the State.' And we are glad to learn that some of our Members of Council, and other public. Functionaries are going to attend the grand " Tea Party" to be given by the " Teetotallers" on next Monday evening, in the Old Court House, Castle. reagh.street. There they will see the blessings of retrenchment, in the abstinence from injuriou...
