Singular Sagacity of a Katu , íUurtng the dreadful storcn which happened on the 4tb'' ¡ January, p singular instance o'' tbe sagacity of a rat occurred in the vicinity of Haddington. About the lime thu river Tyne was at its height, a number of people were assembled on its margin, gazing on quautities of' hey, and the huge masses it was sweeping along in its irresistible course. A swan at'lasts " hove in sight" struggling sometimes for the land, and at others sailing majestically along with the torrent. When it drew near, it was observed that then; was a black spot on its' snowy plumage, and-the spdetator« w-eref mightily surprised* when they discovered, that' this black spot* was à larg? live j rat !

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 12 March 1830

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. Anxious to make our Paper a complete mirror of the Tunes, it is within our contemplated ar- rangements to publish each week a report of whatever takes place, likely to attract the Pub- lic interest, particularly extending to the pro- ceedings of our Courts of Law and Police. The Public must be aware, that upon their co- operation with us in this respect, much of the value of our information must depend. We invite, therefore, communications of a local de- scription, and shall be most happy always to give them a place in our columns. We fear1 that the veiy heavy rains that have continued during the last several days, will be prejudicial to much of the late sown wheat, I which we regret to state is yet in the field in I many districts, on;the other hand, it will do I infinite good to the /turnip crops, will add to the potatoe roots'that are still growing, aihl will enable the forvraid farmers immediately to commence their ploughing opeiations. ,?

BRITISH AND COLONIAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 12 March 1830

ßßlTISH AND COLONIAL INTELLIGENCE. In introducing our readers to this head of 0ur intended arrangements, at present we shall only add,' it will be our endeavour upon the ar- rival of vessels, either from England or else-1 where« to present them with a general summary 0f political intelligence, and afterwards so to ciiU the newspapers that may come into our hands, that we may continue each week to fur- nish them with a variety of selections, such as our own experience tells us, will be at all times interesting. By the last arrivals from England, we regret to leam, that notwithstanding the hopes that have been entertained with respect to j Ireland, that unhappy country still continues a prey to every sort of dissention-murder, robberies, hangings, and every species, of violence, are of common and daily occurrence, nor can all the wisdom and moderation of the Vice-Regal Councils, devise any competent,means of sub- duing the evils. The most daring and cruel murder was perpetrated in the...

The friends of Mr. Crowther, not content with this decision, applied to'the Minister of the Interior, on which' another warrant was issued for my apprehension.

Superstition. A short time since, t|ie Priests Joutid, or pretended to have found, near Lisbon, an image, which was dug from the earth,^nd proclaimed it to be the effigy of an eminent Saint : it was accordingly sef up in one of the churches, where crowds of devotees assembled to offer their adorations.

The March of Intellect. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 12 March 1830

' The March of intellect» At Bristol Assizes, a man named Block was examinedjis a witness in a case of arson, whose evidence njlbrded a fine dis- play of the rapid strides which intellect and science have made in thcsi/days of enlightenment. In answer to a question fiom ' Counsel, íelative to the marks made on the boards by the smoke of a candle, the witness said he had observed " marks of the traits or rays of the concentrated caloric." This ¡un-' gulnrly scientific answer convulsed the Couit with laughter*. The witness could not be prevailed upon lo explain the meaning of the term to the learned Counsel, but on the Re- corder confessing that he himself was ignorant of the precise meaning of the terrn^ the man of science and member of the I Mechanic's Institute, condescended to state, Tth,it the " rays of concentiated caloric" meant " the llame, of the caudle or |-torch."

Execution in France. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 12 March 1830

.Execution in France. A letter troin Lyons says-" The appeal ot Gerard, pon I detuned to death for assassination and robbery having been rejected, the order for his execution was given, and on the day appointed, the Place Louis XIII., where tfce instrument of death had been erected during the night, was crowded with spectators so early as four o'clock in the morning. When the wrelched man learnt that he had but a few hours to live, in order to avoid the-shame of dying upon the scaffold, lu- opened an artery in his left arm. with a sharp instrument, which he had contrived to procure, and the weakness arising from loss of blood concealed from bim the horror of his Situa- tion.

Loss of the Black Swan. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 12 March 1830

Loss of the Black Swan. The Blaik Swan was not lost on Kangaroo Island, as ha: j been enoneously staled, but on Prime Seal Island. The Pilot, who had been engaged to take the vessel through the Straits, having mistaken the S. "W, side of that Island for the corresponding one of Flinders'», where he intended to hare anchored, and although cautioued and questioned by the Master, persisted in his mistake, until the vessel was on the breakers, where siie instantly struck, and before morning was a total wreck. The crew were in imminent danger of perish , ing, and at length saved themselves by dropping oil' the main garfj as her quarter swung unto the rock ; it being provider 'lally ebb tide, and the weather moderating the next day, they were enabled to save all the rigging, sails, &c. Their small boat having been washed on the rocks, they were enabled to .patch her up, so that in ten days they departed for Preserva- tion Island, wheie there is n small settlement.

Anecdotes of Márcela MARCEL, like most men of genius, was an enthusiast in his profession , he had taught, for a great many years, persons of the first rank of all nations, to dance. One day, when a beautiful young lady was dancing, he viewed her with pro- found attention , at last he exclaimed " What variety is in a minuet '"-no doubt Marcel perceived, in the manner of   bending, rising, and performing the steps, elegancies invisi- ble to common eyes. This dancing-master pretended to know a man's character from his walk. " What country- man are you ?"

Aborigines. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 12 March 1830

Aborigines. , .'We have still to record a succession of outrages by the Aborigines. A few days ago, the hut, at the farm of Joseph Ho Ni:, Esq., al the Black Marsh, was attacked during the absence of the men, by a party of these misguided wretches, who proceeded to carry off the whole of the provisions and whatever else it contained, and then set the building on fire. We cannot but repeat the caution for all persons residing in remote stations to be well armed, and on no account to leave ¡ their premises exposed to the easy assault of these savages, for, the successful perpetration oft their acts of aggression, tend more than any thing else to encourage the mischievous pro- pensities, that resistance and severity will no doubt soon check.

It is an every day remark with the generality of persons who arc iii the habit of conversing upon the interests of the Colony, that its impor- tance is not understood by the English People -that it is still looked upon as a Penal Settle- ment by the Government at home-and ¿hat the notice bestowed upon it by those in power has reference rather to a well organised receptacle for tsansported offenders against English laws than as a thriving and commercial station in the Southern Hemisphere.

- Mechanics' Institution. On Tuesday last, Mr, Giblin delivered his 3d Lecture on Astronomy. A 'nore ablo and more intelligent one we luve «eldoni heard, lhere was not that attempt made, which too often is the case, to prove the Lecturer's superior knowledge of tlie subject, and to shew the comparative ignorance of tit« hearers. On the contrary, Mr. Giblin went the most easy way to work, his demonstrations were clear and conoide, and .. well adapted either lo the learned, or to those who may not have received a liberal eduoation. Should we attempt to fol- low,Mr. Giblin through the whole of his lecture, we should perhaps not be doing bim justice, but we cannot pass the " explanation of shadows" without saying, that we doubt not thal every person in the room was convinced by the Lecturer's aigumcnt.
