THE PROPHET OF 1770. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 2 March 1841

THE PROPHET OF 1770. Let us suppose ourselves carried back sixty years in the stream of lime, and to live again, the youthful subject of the young King George III. Let us likewise imagine that in those days the divine spirit of prophecy had come upon us, unveiling to our sight the events of the future. In seven years from this time the British empire shall be rent in twain (American war In 1770.) In fifteen years men shall rise from the earth and fly through the air (invention of balloons, 1780.) In twenty years the French monarchy, the oldest that ever was, and now so flourish- ing, shall come to an end. A virtuous prince (Louis XVI, 1703,) not yet King, shall in twenty-three years lay down his life on the scaffold ; his wife and sister shall share the same fate. In those same days, news shall travel with the tpeed of the wind, and what was done at mid-day shall be known at the farthest bounds of the kingdom ere the setting of the sun (the Telegraph, 1794.) In twenty-six years a co...

DOCTOR DOBBS AND HIS NAG NOBBS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 2 March 1841

DOCTOR DOBBS AND HIS NAG NOBBS. [The power of the extravagant in creating mirth is amply at- tested by such books as the Adventures of Baron Munchausen. The following, which we find in an old scrap-book, seems to us as amusing an example of the outrageous as we have ever chanced to light upon. ] Doctor Daniel Dobbs, of Doncaster, had a nag that was called Nobbs. One day, in the middle of winter, the doctor having been summoned to attend a patient at some distance from his dwelling, and being anxious to return home before it was dark, rode poor Nobbs very hard. On his arrival, not finding his man in the way, the doctor fastened Nobbs by his bridle to a rail in the yard, and went into his parlour, where be sat down to warm himself by a good fire. It had happened that in the morning the doctor's dairy-maid had brewed a barrel of strong beer, which had been drawn off into tho cooler, and the dairy-maid having been called away to milk her cows, she had carelessly left the door of the bre...

INSOLVENT LAW. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 2 March 1841

INSOLVENT LAW. ON Tuesday last, in the case of Lowes and Burke, their Honors expressed their opinion of the present Insolvent Act in terms anything but complimentary to the scope and tendency of that enactment. The points of the case are as follow :-Mr. Burke, as is known, was declared insol «mt, and he subsequently received his discharge. After- wards, however, this discharge waa revoked, when Mr. Burke was arrested at the suit of Mr. Lowes for a consi- derable sum. Upon this proceeding he gave special bail, and the matter came before the Court on Mr. Stephen moving for a rule to show cause why the speciul bail should not be discharged and common bail entered iu stead. It was contended on the part of Mr. Burke, that having been declared insolvent and received his discharge, lie was exempted from any legal proceedings by his ex- isting creditor. True, the discharge was said to hare been rescinded ; but lhere was no proof of that amongst the several books and papers handed over by Mr...

THE CABINET. TO GOD. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 2 March 1841

THE CABINET. TO GOD. For Thee, for Thee, my lyre I string. Who, by ten thousand worlds attended, Holdest Thy course sublime and splendid Through heaven's immeasurable ring ; I tremble 'neath Thy blazing throne, Thy light eternal built upon, Thy throne, as Thou, all radiant, bearing Love's day-beams of benignity I Yet terrible is Thine appearing To them who fear not Thee. O what is mortal man, that he May hear Thy heavenly temple ringing, With songs that heaven's own choirs are singing, And echo back the melody ; My soul is wondering from its place ; Mine eyes are lost amidst the space Where thousand suns arc rolled through heaven, Suns waked by Thee from chaos' sleep ; But with the thought my soul is driven Down to a trackless deep. There was a moment ere Thy plan Poured out Time's stream of mortal glory i Ere Thy high wisdom tracked the story Of all the years since time began, Bringing sweet peace from sorrows mine, And making misery discipline ; The bitter waters of affliction Dis...

ON OMENS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 2 March 1841

ON OMENS. Some of the oriental nations believe; that if a deer* be teen descending a mountain, or behind the beholder, it ia an unlucky omen. Marriages made about the middle of February are fortunate. If an involuntary cough or sneeze interrupt the Mahometans during their ab- lutions, the whole ceremony is begun anew. When a Persian peasant withes the wind to rise for the pur- pose of winnowing his corn, he rubs and scatters into the air a species of saffron ; and by these means hopes to obtain what be desires. In some places, in order to foretel the .weather, the peasants tie some combustible matter to the tail of a bullock, and ignite it ; if the animal then run up a hill, they consider it a eure prognostic of rain. The early Germans made the horse an instrument of divination. When they were about to engage in any military enterprise, they set up three rows of spears, each row consisting of a certain number fixed ia the ground, and one laid across the top. When they were thus fixe...

THE COURIER, MONDAY, MARCH, 1. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 2 March 1841

THE COURIER, MONDAY, MARCH, 1. THE following is the letter which occasioned the duel between Lord Cardigan and Lieutenant Tuckett ; the writer, Lieutenant Tuckett, had formerly belong- ed to the Regiment : Sir,-In the concluding sentence of my letter of the 8th instant, I mentioned that the Inspector-General of Cavalry had iuformed Lord Cardigan in an official letter, that the only conclusion he could arrive at was, . that his lordship's command had been characterised by unnecessary harsh- ness.' Strange to say, a week has passed over and no one has appeared as a defender of his lordship ; nor has any denial been given to a public assertion so crimiuatory of his lordship'« command. With,your permission, I will take a brief review of his lordship's career since he joined the 11th Hussars, and I have no doubt I shall be able satisfactorily to prove that the censure of Sir Charles Dalbiac was strictly just. An erroneous impression has existed, that during the two years and a half his l...
