RESIGNATION OF M. THIERS AND THE FRENCH MINISTRY. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 5 March 1841
RESIGNATION OF M. THIERS AND THE FRENCH MINISTRY. We received, last night, our Paris correspondence of Thursday, and the Madrid Mail of the 15th. In lieu of the usual summary which we are in the habit of presenting to our readers, we give the follow- ing communication from our correspondent : " Paris, Thursday, Oct. 22, four o'clock. " I sent you at two o'clock this afternoon an ex- traordinary courier with the important announcement that the whole of M. Thiers* Ministry had given in its resignation, and that the King had accepted it. Though I had the intelligence from a good source at an earlier hour, I waited to have it formally authen- ticated, as well as to know the effect it would pro- duce on the Bourse, but I now fear that my courier has but a bad chance of effecting his passage in time for a second edition, as the weather has suddenly become most tempestuous. Still the effort has been worth the making, ^and your readers will appreciate our anxiety to give the latest and the ...
THE CABINET. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 5 March 1841
THE CABINET. The wheat, although it lies awhile in earth,* And secmcth lost, consumes not quite away ; But from that womb receives another birth, And with additions riscth from the clay. Much more shall man revive, whose worth is more ; For Death, who from our dross will us refine, Unto that other life becomes the door, Where wc in immortality shall shine. WITH«*. The tree of knowledge is grafted upon the tree of life; and that fruit which brought the fear of death into the world, bud- ding on an immortal stock, becomes the fruit of the promise of immortality.-Sir Humphrey Davy. The affections imply n spirit of self-sacrifice, and often our virtues, like our children, arc endeared to us by what we suffer for them.-Sharpe. Genuine praise, like all other species of truth, is known by its bearing full investigation ; it is what the giver is happy that he can justly bestow, and the receiver conscious that hs may boldly accept ; but adulation must ever be afraid of in- quiry, and must to...
IMPORTANT NEWS FROM THE SEAT OF WAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 5 March 1841
IMPORTANT NEWS FROM THE SEAT OF WAR. Complete success, it appears, has attended our ope- rations in Syria. The Malta Post-office has issued a notice, that in consequence of the rigorous blockade of the ports of Egypt and Syria, on the 16th instant, by Admiral Stopford, by virtue of orders from the English ambassador at Constantinople, the mails for Alexan- dria and India were not to be forwarded by her Ma- jesty's steamer " Prometheus." It was doubtful whether French steamers would be excepted from this blockade. The India mails remain at Malta. A letter from Alexandria, dated Oct. 6, says : Operations in Syria have been prompt and successful beyond expectation ; the Pacha puts a good face upon it, but is evidently disappointed. All the Turkish officers of the fleet allowed to re . turn to Constantinople, also those in prison at Abou- : »kir. They will be conveyed in merchant vessels. His highness has thus got rid of disaffected men, who might have caused serious mutinies if the fle...

PORT PHILLIP.

Now, we have one continua- tion of commodious dwelling houses and neat cottages, running out to the very verge of the Survey Paddock, and we have not a doubt that the whole of that neighbourhood will soon be built upon from its contiguity to the Yarra, where the water is obtained in its purest state.--Port Phillip Herald, Feb. 12.
