ENGLISH EXTRACTS. ANNIVERSARY OF O'CONNELL'S IMPRISONMENT. (From the Spectator.) [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 26 September 1845
ENGLISH EXTRACTS. ANNIVERSARY OF O'CONNELL'S IMPRISONMENT. (From the Spectator.J Friday, the 30th May, the anniversary of Mr. O'Connell's imprisonment, was cele- brated in Dublin with imposing effect. The city was thronged from an early hour, as in the case of any great national holiday. The 1 shops in tho route of the procession that had I been arranged wore kept closed ; and in other parts business was suspended throughout tho day. The only thing we road of resembling coercion is the compulsory stoppage of some work at tho quays, where the coal-porters in- terfered to prevent the unlading of some goods. Tho procession seems tn have been formed in tho first instance in tho Circular Road, where stands Richmond Penitentiary thc prison in which Mr. O'Connell was confined. .The body comprised all the trades of Dublin, each with its band; and is computed by the Repeal calculator to have amounted to 2(30,000 pursons. Its conduct was entrusted lo Mr. Uoynolds, the City Marshal, and Mr. St...

SYDNEY. I (From thc Syí/ney Herald, Sept. 5.) NEW SOUTH WALKS STATISTICS, Imports and Exports. IN tho speech with which he opened tho pre- sent session of the Legislative Council, the Governor dwelt with much emphasis upon the fact, that in the year 1844, for the first time in tho history of Now South 'Wales, the exports of tho colony exceeded tho imports. The returns of imports and exports are this year given in two forms-the first stating the countries to which or from which the articles were sent or received ; tho second specifying- tho countries of which thc arti- cles were the produce or manufacture. By examining each of these returns, we shall be enabled the better to appreciate the fact upon which his Excellency has congratu- lated the colony. Thc total vuluo of our import« was £931.2(30, of which no less than £G43.419. or upwards of two-thirds, was from Great Britain. Tho total value of our exports was £1,128,11:*», of which £8."i4.003, or moro than three-fourths, was to Gre...

A NEW BUTT FOR LORD BROUGHAM. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 30 September 1845
A NEW BUTT FORLORD BROUGHAM. IK Lord Stanley retired to the House of Lords in search of a quiet life, it is to bo feared he will meet with a disappointment. Lord Brougham has set his eye upon him as a change of diet; ho has dropped Lord Camp- bell for a time, to worry Lord Stanley. Tho noble Secretary of State for the Co- lonies came off but indifferently in the first rencontre. The occasion was a petition from the Legislative Assembly of Newfound- land, praying that the mail might be made to take St. John's in its way to Halifax. The petition is rather unreasonable : the route proposed by the petitioners is, in so far as the great bulk of the population of British North America are concerned, a cir- cuitous one. The alteration prayed for would give tho inhabitants of St. John's a slight advantage, at the cost of a serious in- convenience to all the rest of the North American Colonies. Of this the Secretary for the Colonies was not aware. He first sought to escape from the discussio...

MECHANICS' INSTITUTE. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 30 September 1845
MECHANICS' INSTITUTE. DR. TuRNnoLL. on Friday last, resumed Iiis lectures on Chemistry, taking " Heat" as his immediate subject. The lecturer first a&lt;l * verted lo the sensation of heat, as a relative sensation in reference to the previous stale of the body. If one hand bo placed in a ba- sin of hot water, and tho other in a basin of cold, and both aro now transferred to another basin containing1 water of an intermediate temperature, tho sensation of heat will be felt by the hand which had been in the cold water, while at the sams time tho other hand will feel cold. In like manner two persons meeting' midway on a mountain side, the one who had come from the cold region of the summit would say, " How hot it is to- day." " Hot," the other would exclaim, " I am extremely cold ;" shewing clearly that the actual lensnlion of heat or cold depends not merely on the actual temperature of the atmosphere ; but on the previous state of the body. Heat in its action on bodies produces...

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. Mn. II. BAYNTON'S INSOLVENCY-On Thurs, day, Mr. Commissioner Macdowell, having sum- moned Mr. Baynton to attend his Court,-Mr. Montagu, with Mr. Midwood, attended on behalf of the Assignee, Captain Macdonald; and Mr. Rowlands for thc Insolvent. The point mooted was, whether, an Insolvent having obtained his discharge from the Commissioner, it was compe- tent for that Functionary to summon him to at- tend for examination touching his insolvency ; or, at least, whether, if summoned, that it was com- pulsory upon the Insolvent so to attend ? Mr. Rowlands contended that it was not, and had therefore, appeared to shew cause against thc summons, and to argue that Mr. Baynton need not obey it; Mr. Rowlands in support of his ar. gument referred to divers clauses of the Insolvent Act. Mr. Montagu, on the other side, referred to the summons, which was sufficiently plain, clear, and explicit ; he, also, cited thc Act, which gave the Commissioner power to summon an Insolvent...

NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 30 September 1845
NEW ZEALAND. Tn TÍ mass of documentary evidence col- lected by the London Spectator respecting thc affairs of New Zenlnnd, though pnrlinl and coloured, must lend to the conclusion that much blood and trensure have been wasted in vain. A series of mistakes have involved n hody of colonists, comprehending in their character and qualifications thc cle- ments of distinguished success, in painful difficulties, of which it is impossible to sec thc termination. The contradictory policy of the British Government may be traced to thc conflict of opposing views, in refer- ence to thc rights of a civilised power over a barbarous people. Thc miserable results of colonization to aboriginal nations were fresh in thc memory of thc Ministers. They saw no process by which thc collision of Eu- ropean and native interests could be perma- nently prevented. The missionaries to New Zealand employed their influence in averting an experiment which they knew would bc resisted, and which would ensure thc de-...

THE OBSERVER. HOBART TOWN, TUESDAY, SEPT. 30: THE CONVICT QUESTION.-NEWS FROM FIOME. ON the authority of a private letter (luted London, 5 th June, from a well-iiiformed person, we take upon ourselves to state that a new plan of convict discipline had been drawn up, under instructions from the Se- cretary of State ; that it had subsequently been submitted to thc Inspectors of Prisons; that it was hy them approved ; and that n Bill would bc introduced into Parliament probably before the close of thc then cur- rent session, fur giving it effect. Of thc lo- cale of its contemplated operation we have heard nothing j but it is unlikely to bc any- where in which convicts have been before under discipline. I Indubitable reliance may bc placed on thc I correctness ot tins statement.
