SHED-FEEDING OF SHEEP. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 23 September 1845
SIIED-FECnlNO OP SHEKr. I am on approver of Mr. Chiller's plan of keeping sheep under sheds during tho winter season, when fatting, and in bad weather ge- nerally. I observo you note in your Gazette of the Sth instant, that the best mode of lit- tering sheep in confined sheds or houses is a matter worthy of inquiry. I beg to sug- gest that there should not bo any litter whatever used, but that tho stone-pavemont of the sheds and yards ought to bo jointed, cemented, and formed with a declivity of half an inch per foot, from tho walls towards the centre of tho yard, whero should be made two tanks into which all thc urine would then readily drain, and into which all their dung could be easily swept every morning or evening, in order to keep the sheep as clean and dry as possible, and thus lhere would not be any moisture to occasion foot-rot, I consider tho wool on their backs quite suffi- cient to keep the creatures warm, and the use of any litter deteriorating to the quality and condi...

TAHITI. (From the Sydney Morning Herald, August 28.) [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 23 September 1845
TAHITI. (From tho Sydney Morning Herald, August 28.) We liavo not received any numbers of tho Journal ¡lc Tahiti, but in the Sandwich Islands' newspapers we observe several items of intelligence of a later dato than we have received direct. Everything was quiet, although tho natives still remain in arm?, and refuse to acknow- ledge French authority. The petty chief Ta. rira, residing near Point Venus, had declared for tho French interests, and asked for pro- tection, which was afforded him in thc shape of a small fort and block-house, on tho ex- tremity of tho point. The well-armed natives at their different encampments wore begin- ning to make a stir in consequence. On Queen Victoria's birthday, tho French ships and batteries fired royal salutes ! Provisions continued to be very Bcarce. The Governor of tho French Establish- ments in Oceanie and Commissioner of the King to the Queen of tho Society Islands, in concert with Paraita, had decreed that the state of siege in which Tahiti ...

CANADA. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 23 September 1845
CANAD A. Reports liad prevailed in Cnnada that tho Governor-General, Lord Metcalfe, was about to retire from his high office. Tho Kingston Clironictc says *' We have great satisfaction in stating, upon authority which cannot bo questioned, that our noble governor, on hearing that it was reported that ho contemplated retiring from the Government of Canada and return- ing to Englund, said, "You aro perfectly ut liberty to say to anybody and everybody that 1 have no such intention, and that it is my full determination to retain my present po- sition as long as her Majesty shall requiro my services." There is one feature of Lord Metcalfe'« government which is peculiar to itself, and essentially different from that of any former Governor. All (except Lord Sydenham) have thrown themselves into the arms of either ono party or tho other-either of the old faction or thc Reform party. Lord Metcalfe has kept both at arms' length by moral means, and is nt this moment independent of both, and ca...
THE SANDWICH ISLANDS. (From the Sydney Morning Herald, August 28.) [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 23 September 1845
THE SANDWICH ISLANDS. (From thc Sydney Morning Herald, August 28.) Tho extracts from Sandwich Island news- papers, aro both instructivo und amusing. Instructive, as they show tho struggles which tho natives are makins1 for tho formation of a Government on European principles, and amusing for the gravity with which the royal speech (which, by-lhe-bye, is worthy of a Peel or a Melbourne) talks of tho friendli- ness of foreign powers, and for the early as- sumption of prorogative by his Majesty. At tho new Legislature, prayer was offered up to Almighty God (a hint to legislators moro advanced in civilization), and a day of prayer and thanksgiving had been set apart to return thauks for tho position which the nation had been enabled to assume, Tlie late Governor Adams was said to have left iii 19,000 in specie to his heirs. The propriety of abolishing the native lan- guage in the courts of justice nnd in official documents was being discussed, and there appears little doubt, that in a f...

MECHANICS' INSTITUTE. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 23 September 1845
MECHANICS' INSTITUTE. THE third and concluding- lecture of Mr. Wade's short course on " Electricity in its practical application," was delivered on Fri- day last. It embraced some of the practical details of Electro-metallurgy, or the working in metals by galvanic action, a subject, wo believe, that had not before been publicly noticed on this side of the island. The lecturer adverted to diagrams beforo referred to, shewing- the arrangement of the zinc and copper in the galvanic battery, ond then explained tho modification of tho prin- cipio by Professor Daniell in his sulphate of copper constant battery, It had been found that when copper poles of the galvanic bat- tery were immersed in a saturated solution of sulphate of copper (tho common blue vitriol, or blue-stone), tho water of tho solu- tion was decomposed, as when platina poles were used in water; but now a more com- plex change is the result. The extremity of the pole at which oxygen is disengaged, is acted on by tho oxygen...
