THE EDUCATION COMMISSION. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 19 June 1845
THE EDUCATION COMMISSION. A NORTHERN contemporary the other day in- timated that some anxiety was felt respecting the nature of the Report furnished by the Education Commission, and expressed some- thing akin to a hope that His Excellency would lay that document before the public. We do not pretend to have that unques- tionably authentic intelligence by which the anxiety felt would be altogether removed, or the curiosity of our contemporary satis- fied ; but we have heard the following state- &nbsp; ment from more than one quarter in which correct information was likely to be held, and we believe that substantially it will re- ceive confirmation in due time. The Education Commission, it is not to &nbsp; be forgotten, was appointed, not to inquire into the general merits of this or that sys- tem ; but, simply, into the truth of certain statements which had been made respecting the Government Schools as at present es- tablished, The Commissioners, accordingly, in the R...

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. SUMMARY OF THE WEEK. (From the Allas, Feb. 22.) [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 19 June 1845
ENGLISH EXTRACTS. SUMMARY OF THE WEEK. (From the Atlas, Feb. 22.) What the proceedings in Parliament for the first ten days of its meeting lacked in interest has been fully balanced by the lively and important debates of the present week. On Monday Lord John Russell took formal exceptions to Sir Robert Peel's retention of the income-tax, but it was left to Mr. Roebuck to throw objections into the substantive form of a motion, which was lost on a later evening by a considerable majority. On Wednesday Lord Ashley ob- tained leave to bring in a bill for the regulation of the labour of children in calico printing establishments, supporting his pro- position by a mass of evidence obtained from different manufacturers. Has argu- ments were of the same complexion as those employed last year upon a similar cause, with this difference, that in the present instance the subjects of his solicitude were mere children. Mr. Duncombe, on the same evening, revived the subject of letter opening at th...

IRISH AGRICULTURAL ASSOCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 24 June 1845
IRISH AGRICULTURAL ASSOCIATION. In consequence of the declaration of Mr. O'Connell, that he would die on the floor of the House of Commons, and then go over to Ireland to agitate for repeal, there was an extra meeting of the Irish Agricultural As- sociation, at which it was unanimously re- solved that the first prize should he given to the Honourable Member for the Greatest Bull that ever was known.—Ibid.
THE SENSITIVE MEMBER. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 24 June 1845
THE SENSITIVE MEMBER. Mr. Muntz in the course of the letter de- bate on Friday last, " assured the House that he had not yet recovered from the feel- ing that he experienced when he was told of the practice of opening letters at the Post office !" Since this intimation having heen given, the honorable Member's residence has been beseiged by persons enquiring as to the state of his health, and it has been thought advisable to issue the following bulletins :— Saturday Morning.—Mr. Muntz is still in a very nervous state, and goes into hys- terics whenever he hears a postman's knock. His medical attendants have ordered every- thing to be removed from his sight that might remind him in any way of the sub- ject of letters. An attendant unfortunately caused a relapse by leaving a wafer stamp in the honourable member's inkstand, which threw him into a severe fit of shivers. Saturday Afternoon.—Mr Muntz con- tinues much the same. He shed tears copiously over a packet of envelopes, which gave...
MRS. CAUDLE'S CURTAIN LECTURES. LECTURE V. MR. CAUDLE HAS REMAINED DOWN STAIRS TILL PAST ONE, WITH A FRIEND. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 24 June 1845
MRS. CAUDLE'S CURTAIN LECTURES. LECTURE V. MR. CAUDLE HAS REMAINED DOWN STAIRS TILL PAST ONE, WITH A FRIEND. A pretty time of night to come to bed, MR. CAUDLE. Ugh? As cold, too, as any ice. Enough to give any woman her death, I'm sure. What ! I shouldn't have locked up the coals, indeed ? If I hadn't, I've no doubt the fellow would have staid all night. It't all very well for you, MR. CAUDLE, to bring people home,—but I wish you'd think first what's for supper. That beautiful leg of pork would have served for our dinner to- morrow,—and now ifs gone. I can't keep the house upon the money, and I won't pretend to do it, if you bring a mob of people every night to clear the cupboard. " I -wonder who'll he so ready to give you a supper when you want one ; for want one you will, unless you change your plans. Don't tell me ! I know I'm right. You'll first be eaten up, and then you'll be laughed at. I know the world. No, indeed, Ma. CAUDLE, I don't think ill of everybody ; don't say that. ...
"WHAT IS ALL THIS ABOUT?" Bishop of Exeter's Speech in the House of Lords. (From the Times, March 3.) [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 24 June 1845
" WHAT IS ALL THIS ABOUT ?" —Bishop of Exeter's Speech in the House of Lords. (From the Times, March 3.) " WHAT is all this about ?" says the right rev. prelate in reply to Lord Fortescue in the Upper House of Parliament last Thursday night ; and the inquiry was received with general laughter. Why, the " ABOUT " is this, and a singular ABOUT it is,—that two bishops out of six-and-twenty have, in what they call pastoral letters to their clergy, ordained a different mode of performing the divine worship of the church from that to which the people of England, for whose use the liturgy was compiled, had been imme- morially accustomed ; and the consequence &nbsp; of these changes has been universal confusion and tumult in those two dioceses ; while all the other dioceses of England have been tranquil ; but not without a painful, we hope needless, anxiety, lest the ill advised changes should spread. The case of Exeter, where the disturbance has been greatest, was very properly and...

TEXAS. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 24 June 1845
TEXAS. THE State of Texas, previous to its inde- pendence, formed one of the provinces of Mexico. On its organization as a republic, it was recognised as an independent power by the United States ; but it would appear that the acknowledgment was made with an ill grace, for ever since, at intervals, the slave-holding-and we may add the slave bound-Congress has shown a strong desire to take it into the Union. France acknow- ledged Texas, and concluded a treaty with it 25th September, 1839. A treaty of amity and commerce between England and Texas was signed in London on the 18th of November, 1840, and ratified by the Texan Government in February, 1841. The Mexican Government has expressed a determination to reconquer Texas, but in the present desperate condition of Santa Anna, and the distracted and impoverished state of the country, it is not likely—even were the Americans and the European allies of the republic to remain passive—that it will be able to reduce a population almost inac...

INSOLVENT COURT. THURSDAY, JUNE 19, 1845. Before Edward Macdowell, Esq., Commissioner.

Wilson, there being an agreement in writing to take that sum, signed by nine of the creditors, of whom Mr. Wilson was one. The Commissioner directed the insolvent to hand the agreement over to the assignee, and an adjourned first meeting was fixed for the 17th proximo. In re Edward Edmund Luttrell.—The first meet- ing of creditors took place this duy, when several claims were made which were admitted by the in- solvent, and an adjourned first meeting of creditors fixed for 3rd July next. In re John Davis.—This was a first general meet...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE, THE GOVERNOR. To the Editor of the Observer. SIR,—I beg the favor of your inserting in your journal an answer to the following concentration of the numerous undertoned calumnies now circulating through this Co- lony, affecting the character of His Excel- lency our Governor. It is high time to have proof or justice. —Your's, truly, JUSTITIA. " The scandal of his private life may pass unno- ticed among those whose property he has confis- cated, and whose lives he has endangered, but we have not sunk so low in New South Wales, at least we will not submit to the barefaced burrow. &nbsp; ing of " Verreo " or the excesses of " Helioga- holus." We know not how it is with Van Die- &nbsp; men's Land, but there are no classical associations connected with the woods of Australia ; the Satyrs do not dance here, Cornus and his troop had bet- ter stay where they are."—Sydney Atlas.

HORRIBLE MURDER AT GEORGE TOWN. [From the Launceston Examiner, June 18.] [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 24 June 1845
HORRIBLE MURDER AT GEORGE TOWN. [From the Laiucesloit Examiner, June 18.] &nbsp; Particulars were received in town on Mon- &nbsp; day of a horrible murder committed near George Town, attended with circumstances of an extraordinary and most unusual cha- racter.—The probationers in the service of Government at George Town receive their pay every Saturday ; and on Saturday last a number of them wore drinking about the township, and became intoxicated. Towards evening three of them were seen to pass the police magistrate's house, and proceed to- wards the light-house in company with a seaman belonging to the brig Tobago, re- cently wrecked on the reef at the Shear Bea- con. Not a very long time elapsed before one of the probationers returned, and re- ported to the police magistrate that he had been stopped by two men on the road and robbed, but he furnished neither names nor descriptions. Constables were immediately dispatched, and on arriving at the spot their attention...
