The extract is |very voluminous, and we cannot therefoie publish it in full, butthe absolute facts which it discloses may be comprised within a very small space. It is a report addressed to the Governor of New Brunswick hy an officer belonging to the Survey Department of that colony. It is necessaiy, in the fir*t place, to guard our readers against forming an opinion which the woids <! wooden tail ways" will naturally suggest, namely, .that the railways alluded to are entirely constructed of timber.

PAINLESS SURGERY. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 22 April 1848

PAINLESS SURGERY. WE have at different times called the attention of -our readers to the highly important discovery, that by means of the application of ether the most severe surgical operations could be performed without pam to the patient. We have now to state that a new anaesthetic agent has been dis- covered by Professor Simpson, of Edinbugh. It .ii a substance called chloroform, or the perchloiide of formyle. It is applied similarly to ether, that is to say, the patient is made to inhale it, and its advantages over ether are so great, that it is said 'the latter will be entirely superseded. Chloroform is a dense, limpid, colourless liquid, »readily evaporating, and possessing an agreeable, 'fragrant, fruit-like odour, and a saccharine plea- sant taste. As an inhaled and anaesthetic agent, it possesses over sulphuric ether the following .advantages:-1st. A much less quantity will .produce the same effect. 2nd. A more rapid, com- plete, and generally more persistent action, with ...

MAURITIUS. (From the Port Phillip Patriot, March 10.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 22 April 1848

MAURITIUS. ,C From Hie ¡fort Phillip ^Patriot, March IQ.y PRIVATE advices from this colony represent mat- ters to be hastening on to a crisis. The greatest distrust prevails in the mercantile circles owing to the extreme scarcity of money, consequent upon Ute failures of the principal London houses con- nected with the trade of the island. The planters are 'not disposed to sell to the merchants unless for cash on delivery, which is not obtainable. One party, 'having more confidence or simplicity than the rest, sold on the usual terms, and was coolly in- formed that he must wait the convenience of the house for payment, as the proceeds were required by tlie firm to " keep them going." A very extensive robbery has been committed on the firm of Adams and Co., (agent for Reid, Irving, and Co , of Ixmdon), by their cashier, a gentleman of the "Townend" genus, who it appears, squandered 105,000 dollars, the property of his employers, at the gambling table. The delinquent's father offered ...
