MARKETS. HOBART TOWN, 19th JUNE, 1845. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 19 June 1845
HOBART TOWN, 10th JUNE, 1845. &nbsp; Yesterday the tenders to the Commissariat were &nbsp; given in for 10 and 20 per cent, flour at £10 10s. to £13, £15, and as high as £17 13s. We believe &nbsp; that at the lowest prices only small quantities were &nbsp; tendered, and no fall in the price of wheat can be looked for ; the price to-day is 5s. 4d. to 5s. 6d. per bushel. Large quantities have been purchased in Launceston for Hobart Town. An order to buy &nbsp; barley for Sydney has been received, which may cause an advance in that grain—at present the price is 3s. 3d. to 4s.

THE OBSERVER. HOBART TOWN, THURSDAY, JUNE 19. POLICE AND GAOL EXPENDITURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 19 June 1845
THE OBSERVER. HOBART TOWN, THURSDAY, JUNE 19. POLICE AND GAOL EXPENDITURE, A REPORT is current that Sir Eardley Wil- &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; mot has received a Despatch from Lord &nbsp; Stanley consenting to the burden of the &nbsp; Police and Gaol Expenditure being shared &nbsp; by the British Government to the amount of &nbsp; one-half. We could wish that this report &nbsp; were true ; but true it is not. Whether a &nbsp; subject has, or has not, been received, we &nbsp; are not informed ; but in touching upon the &nbsp; subject, we deem it only right to say, that whether successful or not in his appeal to Lord Stanley's sense of justice, Sir Eardley &nbsp; Wilmot is equally entitled to the thanks of the colonists for having advocated their fair claims.
THE PETITION. THE PRESENT CONVICT SYSTEM. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 19 June 1845
THE PETITION. THE PRESENT CONVICT SYSTEM. WE do not pledge ourselves to every syllable contained in the Petition, nor ascribe metaphysical accuracy to moral delineations. It is with the substance of its prayer that we are concerned. And if we are satisfied that it is sustained by experience, we shall not be troubled at the imputation of super- fluous statements or untenable suppositions, although we confess that it would have pleased us better had it gone not quite so far. The objects of the British Government are not our sole consideration. Could it even be shewn that the Crown is a gainer, or that the prisoners are improved by the system existing, we should, for ourselves, survey its tendencies—we should judge of its value by its bearing on the future destinies of our homes nnd our families. ' Lord Stanley has rejected with contempt considerations affecting the free population : he has told the settlers, who left England under other promises and expectations, that if they find the...
ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 19 June 1845
ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. BY the Mount Stuart Elphinstone we have a small addition to the intelligence from Eu- rope with which we were previously in pos- session ; but it is not of much political importance. Parliament had been again engaged in the discussion of the Sugar Du- ties, and the papers refer to a masterly speech by Mr. Macaulcy on that question, in which that distinguished speaker unmer- cifully exposed the inconsistency of the Mi- nisterial policy in the light of its bearing upon slavery,—the argument of Ministers for the present sugar duties, being the ne- cessity of supporting the free growers. Mr. Duncombe had also again brought the subject of the Post-office examination of letters be- fore Parliament, but beyond a lengthened discussion, no result was obtained. Things are tolerably quiet in Ireland, but the repeal agitation is by no means at an end. Of the new Secretary, Sir T. Free- mantle, O'Connell says, that " he is a very nice man for a small tea-party !" Intelligen...
HORRORS OF THE SLAVE TRADE. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 19 June 1845
HORRORS OF THE SLAVE TRADE. IN the last Session of Parliament Lord Palmerston, in the House of Commons, in moving for some returns made the follow- ing interesting statement :— The Governments of the countries into which these negroes were imported, pub- lished no returns. Although those Go- vernments were bound by engagements with England, to prohibit the slave trade, yet many of them—the Governments of Spain and Brazil notoriously—set those engage- ments at defiance (hear, hear.) In some places they even derived revenue from the violation of the treaty. Of one thing they must be assured, that all the accounts fell short of the truth (hear.) Now, what were the numbers calculated as the annual im- portations into the islands and continents of America ? Mr. Vandervelde in his work, compiled from official documents, calculated the numbers of those actually landed at from 120,000 to 130.000. Sir Fowell Buxton stated the number to about 150,000, and whichever calculation they took, what...
NECROLOGY. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 19 June 1845
NECROLOGY. DEATH OF THE MARQUIS WESTMINSTER—The death of this nobleman took place on Mon- day night, at his mansion, Eaton-hall, near Chester. His lordship, who was in his 78th year, was a munificent patron of the truly English sport of horse-racing, and of every- thing calculated to promote the interests of the arts and sciences. He was descended in the male line from an illustrious house that flourished in Normandy a century and half before the conquest of England, and obtained its surname from having held the high and powerful office in that principality of Le Grovenour. The founder of the English Grosvenors, Gilbert le Grosvenor, came over in the train of William I., and was nephew of Hugh Lupus, Count of Avranches, after- wards Earl of Chester, uncle of that victori- ous monarch. His lordship was the twenty first in descent from that illustrious founder, and was created Marquis of Westminster in &nbsp; September, 1831. He is succeeded in his titles and estates by his so...
MECHANICS' INSTITUTION. OPENING LECTURE[?] (Concluded from our last.) [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 19 June 1845
MECHANICS' INSTITUTION. OPENING LECTURE, BY THE REV. J. LILLIE, PRESIDENT. (Concluded from our last.) " As a general proposition. it may with truth be affirmed, that in so far as the evil in question depends on the separation and want of intercourse of the different classes of a community, whatever has a tendency to remove the cause, must tend, in a corres- ponding degree, to lessen the effect. What ever brings the separate grades and divisions of society into the same situation, so as to make them think together, and feel together, or discharge together any of the great offices of their common, moral, and intellectual being, must so far undermine the walls of prejudice which had kept them apart, and lay fhem open to the humanizing influences of mutual sympathy. There is a natural tendency to union,—a kind of spiritual affinity, strong and invincible, which makes minds go together and confess their kindred origin, whenever they are placed in circum- stances to bring it forth." This ...
THE SLEEPING INFANT. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 19 June 1845
THE SLEEPING INFANT. How calm thy sleep, my little one ! Gift of a hand divine ! Care has no wreath to place upon That lily brow of thine : Yet on thy cheek are tears of grief, Like pearl-drops on a flower ; Frail emblems of thy sorrows brief At evening's lonely hour. Yet thou wilt wake to boundless glee &nbsp; When dewy morn appears, Nor e'er remembered more will be Thy bitter evening tears. But what are these thy hopes which share ? Thy feeble hands which fill ?— Thou'rt grasping with a miser's care Thy little playthings still ; Come yield to me each useless toy, Till morn's young beams shall peep ;— Nay, struggle not !—can'st thou enjoy These trifles in thy sleep ? Slumber her silken plumes has furl'd Around thy placid brow, And yet an emblem of the world Thou pictur'st to me now. 'Tis thus with man, whom old age brings To life's declining vale. He weeps at Time's stern call, and clings To trifles just as frail ! BUST OF ADAM SMITH.—It has long been a subject of regret am...

IRELAND. (From the Speculator, February 15th.) [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 19 June 1845
IRELAND. (From the Speculator, February 15th.) At a meeting in St. Jude's Tavern, in Dublin, on Thursday last week. Mr. O'Con- nell, who presided, uttered some of his most racy strictures on men and things. " Introducing the first toast, he made some complimentary allusions to the Queen, not altogether of the most exalting kind. It was true, he said, that she signed her name to documents prepared by her Minis- ters ; but it was a mere mechanical opera- tion, that might as well be performed by , means of a stamp, as in the days of Henry &nbsp; the Eighth and George the Fourth. That, &nbsp; however, was not the fashion in the present &nbsp; age. The Sovereign wrote her own signa- ture with her own hand; but political power she had nonw. She could drive about in her chariot wherever she pleased, sure of a hearty welcome from her people wherever she went ; she might go visits to the Duke of Buckingham or to the Iron Duke, and when she was tired of wandering she c...
