LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. EXECUTION ON TUESDAY- "MOUSING.-At thc usunl hour, and nt thc usual place, Lockwood, Gomm, and Taylor underwent the last dread doom of the law, pursuant to their sentence, passed some weeks ago. Some expectation was entertained, that, In consequence of a supposed confession made by Eliza Benwell, Taylor's life would lie spared, but the fact of there being three ropes suspended from the fatal beams, indicated thc fu- tility of thc supposition ;- the three men were evidently to suffer. There was a very large con- course of people assembled to witness the Execu- tion,-the largest, indeed, ire have ever witnessed in this Colony,-and at seven o'clock wc observed a number of females, several of whom had black eyes and broken noses, with other indications of colonial gentility i sevcrnl respectably dressed little boys had also placed themselves against the railing, In front of the public offices, who, as well ns the women, seemed to look forward to the awful scene, with...

MR. GREGSON. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 23 September 1845
MK. GREGSON. WE hnvc to congratulate Hie Colony on tlie Secretary of State's approval of Mr. Greg son's appointment to a scat in the Legisla- tive Council. Thc delay of this approval must have rendered the honorable gentle- man's position in the Council a mortifying one-unmerited, though it might be deemed -nnd. his retirement he must also have felt would have exposed him to equivocal re- marks. Now every thing of the kind is removed, and the very delay enhances the testimony which the Secretary of State's approval involves. "We are glad too, that it should have come nt a period in which a sense of common interest and common wrong is universal in the Colony, and has gone far to extinguish party and personal animosities by making the Colonists, almost to a man, one party against British injus- tice, and that thus Mr. Gregson's confirma- tion is appreciated as a public benefit. May the honorable gentleman be enabled to serve the Colony with zeal, integrity, and talent as long as it ne...
WATER COMPANY. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 23 September 1845
AV AT EU COMPANY. WK understand tlint it is in contemplation to establish n. Joint-Stock Company for the purpose of supplying this city with Water. It is proposed to raise n certain sum of money in shares, and to appropriate it to the purchase of pipes, (of which there is a considerable supply in the possession of the Government,) and to the general exe- cution of the works required, under the sanction of an Act of Council. His Ex- cellency, it is said, is willing to sell the pipes belonging to Government to a Com- pany nt a long credit, nnd it is nlso under- stood that he will grant any number of Probationers to carry on the works, giving a long credit for their wages. The advantages of n proper supply of pure water are too obvious to need being insisted upon, and everybody has come to thc conclusion that thc time has arriveront which it has become imperiously necessary to ndopt mentis for obtaining it. But there arc a few persons who differ from most of those who have considered :...
THE OBSERVER. HOBART TOWN, TUESDAY, SEPT. 23. THE CONVICT SYSTEM. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 23 September 1845
THE OBSERVER. HOBART TOWN, TUESDAY, SEPT. 23. ' THE CONVICT SYSTEM. , THE people of South Australia hnvc culled n Public Meeting to protest against thnt mensure of the Crown, hy which condi- tional pardons to our prisoners may bo 1 granted, with leave to proceed to the neigh- | bouring colonies-a mensure, upon which f they look ns n more circuitous course to f pollute their social state and swell their criminal population. Though we cannot ¡ concur in their immediate object, we may sympathize in their alarm. To exclude ! from a province of the Crown a portion of British subjects, released from bondage, would be, to restrict general liberty, and to concentrate here a class which it is desira- ble to dissolve by dispersion. A feeling of proud hostility to the prisoners is neither just nor humane. To place them under an inexorable ban, is neither consonant with British equity, nor thc pure morals of the Christian religion. But the royal province may well feel nnxiety at the extent of a...

SYRIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 23 September 1845
The treaty of July, 1841, seems to have done little for Syria, if there be any truth in the accounts contained in tho following letter, dated Beyrout, 17th May; and there can be little doubt that it is substantially correct : A civil war, and one of extermination, reigns at this moment in the mountains, between the Druses and the Christians, and during the last fifteen days, the horrors we have seen perpetrated around us are dread- ful. On every side the sounds of battle are heard, and nothing is seen bul fire and flame '. Houses, villages, churche-, and convent« being reciprocally a prey to thc flames. We have before us the appalling spectacle of no less than eleven villages and a number of Maronite churches and convents in flames, and what is worse, when the Christians are victorious, they enter tho Druse villages, put- ting tn the edge of the sword men. women, and children ; the Druses following tho ex- ample when they are victorious. All tho silk-worms of both parties, the sole ...

FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. PRUSSIA. The Government of this country, it will be seen by tho following extract of a letter, dated Berlin, 25th ult., will not join in any attempts forcibly to suppress the new re- ligious movement in Germany : Our Government has come toa resolution on the subject of tho German Catholics, and has addressed the following- circular to the regencies and the consistories :-" As re- ligious liberty exists in Prussia, the move- ments of the German Catholic Church cannot be arrested, nor can tho German Catholics bo prevented from followinir the exercise of their modo of worship.
