Persian Houses. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 23 April 1830

Persian Bouses. i nie nouses at Bandar Abassi are built in a very singular way : the foundations are sunk three or four feet in the sand, and consist of bricks formed of olay, chopped straw, and ? horse-dang, moistened with sea water. Having .properly shaped the bricks, they pile them np in large heaps, with , layers of brushwood of straw, and set them on fire. They afterwards sprinkle over them a little lime and salt water, and ? beat tberu down with a kind of mallet into the foundations, where they become as hard as flint. Tbe wallsare construct- q ed of large sun-burnt bricks, which look like bewn stone) and r are bound together by clay instead of mortar. Columns, also, ' I and pilasters, are constructed of these bricks, and coated j « I with lime made from certain stones, and extremely white ; and j '. ' when finished, the whole looks exactly like hewn stone»- 1 e ¿> .

English News [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 23 April 1830

English News.             A Quarterly Publication has recently been established in London, called the " Law Magazine," by   Saunders and Benning, successors, to Butterworth and Son,   Fleet-street. From what we have seen of this work it will become a valuable appendage to the legal library, and appears to be conducted in a way not only useful as regards the Pro-   fession, but instructive to every one who takes an interest in the institutions under which we live.           An iron vessel was launched on October last,   at Liverpool, and not only looked handsome, but floated   buoyantly on the water. It is intended for the Irish inland navigation.                  ...

Execution. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 23 April 1830

Execution         On Monday last the execution of the unfortunate Mary M'Lachland alias Sutherland took place. This is the first in- stance of a woman being brought to the scaffold in this Colo- ny, and constrasting with this event the many and frequent ex- ecutions which take place of the male community, a question naturally arises to all thinking persons, why is it that so   many more of the latter should suffer? It is sometimes said,   that there is no medium with respect the female character, that either they are all that's good and virtuous, or that they are depraved and abandoned in the extreme; how then is it     that in a place like this, where the most profligate and wick- ed of the female sex are to be found - how is it, we say, that the proportionate number of females suffering the severe penalty of the law, should be so comparatively small, when compared with the numbe...
