THE "STRATHISLA'S" VOYAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 16 September 1845
TUE " ST R AT II I S L A ' 8" VOYAOE. I Extracts from the private journal of T. Beckford Simpson: The port of Auckland is an excellent harbour, well sheltered from all windst its native name is Waitemata (literally, smooth sea.) On its south side are a succession ol small bays i in the vicinity of one of these bays is thc township of Auckland From thc comparative level nature of thc country around it, and from its central position, which gives it the advantage of a port on thc west side of New Zealand also (the port of Manoukno is only sepa- rated from the port of Auckland hy a very narrow isthmus) the site is well adapted for the purpose for which it has been selected. On entering thc har- bour, the town lins rather n pretty but somewhat of n bleak and sterile appearance, occasioned from the almost total absence of trees in its neighbour- hood. The principal pnrt of the town is built in the hollow ¡inmediately facing the hay. From ca- sual observation it appeared to be badly laid o...
[?]. 'OLD CRUSTED PORT.' [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 16 September 1845
' ültórrllanra. . OLD CRUSTEfl PORT.' j fr the lovers of ' old crusted port' were aware of the manner in which their much admired crust is frequently produced, they would certainly be less disposed tn take so fallacious a standard as a test of excellence. The tricks of the trade are vividly exposed in the following notice-taken from the proceedings of the London Chemical So- ciety-respecting the composition of certain kinds of green or bottle glass:-Some green glass bottles had been submitted to Mr. Warrington, of Apothecaries' Hall, for exa mination, on the ground of their having im- parted a bad Cavour to the wine contained in them. On inspection, they were found to have tho inner surface rough and opaque, and to he readily acted upon by tartaric acid. A comparative analysis of the glass of theso bottles with other green glass, showed that a large preponderance of bases, especially lime, had been employed in their fabrica- tion. A few of the objectionable bottles were then filled ...

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [From the Southern Australian, Aug. 12.] [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 16 September 1845
SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [From the Southern Australian, Aug. 12.] THE GREAT NORTHERN MINE.-In our last we stated that the special survey had been taken. Tl>¡3 statement was premature. It turns nut that money is too rife, and too many people wished to join in it. A dispute took place, and tho town has been in a perfect ferment for several days. It appears that tho South Australian Company was dis- posed to join to tho extent of ¿£10,000, and four or five other parties were ready with tho other .£10,000, but would not join at all ex- cept with persons of their own choice. A third duh mustered nearly £10,000, and the Company considered that the last should have the preference, as having first proposed tho scheme. The parties accordingly had twenty four hours to muster the full sum, but hav- ing been a little beyond the time, they were excluded. This measure added fuol to the flame. The greatest confusion and excite- ment in consequence prevailed, and at the time we write nothing definite ha...
MAYNOOTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 16 September 1845
MAYNOOTH. THE Maynooth Grant, considering the prin- ciple involved, must, ere long, lead to the most important political changes ; and our renders will find it interesting to learn thc views of the Times on this question con- tained in thc following leader copied from a late number : Thc Premier has now virtually carried his measure, and wf arc inclined to think he will be the Inst person to complain of our recurring again to its very great significance. The bill itself must proclaim its own consequences to all men of common under- standing. New Maynooth is really a mag- nificent and efficacious pinn for supplying nu accomplished priesthood equal to thc wants of all Catholic Ireland. There is no educational institution in this empire that cnn pretend to vie with it, ns a school for clergy. Trinity College, Dublin, without discipline, without even compulsory resi- dence, with its broad distinction between its pnsses and its honours, and its imper fact theological instruction, is noth...

MECHANICS' INSTITUTE. THK two lecture! by Mr. Wada on "The practical application of the Electrical Sci- ence«." delivered on the evenings of the 5th and 12th instant, were numerously attended, aod by request a third lecture on the same subject is to be delivered next Friday. VVo were unavoidably prevented from giving our accustomed report of tho first lecture It embraced a cursory view of electricity generally, in which the lecturer ventured to throw aside the notion of thc existence of any Quid substance, however subtle, as the primary cause of electrical phenomena. He supposed as property, or association of properties, existing' in the ultimate atoms of which all substances are composed, and which in. their arrangements, combinations, and changes, might account for the known effects of electricity. The different methods hy which electrical effects are produced were illustrated in the first lecture by a capital two feet plate machine, exhibiting frictional electricity, and by ten j...
