VARIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 6 February 1840

VARIETIES. A Rusiian Pentant's Wedding-We had a wedding here a few dais ago, and we went into the gallery of the church lo witness the ceremony, which began at hal f-pas I seven ¡n the evening, and lasted nearty three quarters of an hour. The bridegroom was a peawtnt of rather a superior class, and in good circumstances, hoi still a serf ; and the bride was ihedaoghter of a Tamboff trades man. In acase like this the wife becomes a stave, hat site regains her liberty at her husband* death if she survives him. The church was, of coarse, lighted ap, and a small altar was placed in the middle ; in front of the aliar a carpet is always stretched, on which the couple stand, each holding a lighted taper daring the ceremony : they walk ap to it side hy side, and it is supposed, whichever first sets foot on it will hereafter have (he apper band in the household. Towards the latter part of the ceremony, after à number of prayers and hymns, two crowns of gilt metal were brought to j the priest...

The principle of this system is that of com municating the power of fixed steam engines to the train in motion, by means of exhaustion. A continuons line of pipe ia laid between the rails, which is exhausted by the fixed steam engine» on one side of a travelling piston ; the piston is thus caused «o move forward therein, and draw with it the train of carriage» which is attached to it by means of an arm passiog 'brough the side of the pipe. The introduction of tliis system must a* tord great advantage to all classe* interested in the progress of railroads in general, because it can be wron cht at one-third the expense, and at much greater velocity, witboot tba possibility ot explosion or collission.

At this island four Samoa teachers were left. The Camden went from Tanna lo Ft ania n go; the natives received some presents of fishhooks, beads, &c, but were ex ceedingly shy ; they were ail armed with clubs and arrows.

While attempting to solve the problem, several ideas have suggested them selves to our mind. First of ail tve felt inclined to account for our not understanding him on the supposition that he did not understand himself. Then feeling persuaded that he must have meant something, it occurred to us that he wished to be understood as dreams are interpreted, by the rule of contraries ; but not feeling sure how we should make out tiie entire of his meaning OH this principle, our charity for a moment prevailed on us to con clude that he must have meant exactly what he said...

NEW TRANSPORTATION LAW. From the Colonial Gazette. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 13 February 1840

NEW TRANSPORTATION LAW. From the Colonial Gazette.   An essential vice of the system of governing in local matters from a great distance is that the Imperial Parlia- ment [?}t is under the necessity of delega- ting to others vast powers, the exercise of which is incapable of controlling.   In Colonial affairs and especially in those of colonies without local repre-   sentation, the Secretary of State him-   self is a Legislature. He makes laws   for the Colonies, besides superintending their execution ; and the very circum- stances which induce Parliament to confer this great authority on him, ab- solve him from the wholesome control   of Parliamentary observation. The effect to be produced by the law and   the mode of its execution, is too far off to be a matter of constant interest with Parliament; and therefore the Colonial Minister legislates and administers ac-   &nbs...
