ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 3 October 1845

ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. Tim English intelligence in our fourth pngo is taken from thc Times, of 1,'Uh June, thc latest paper we believe in thc colony, ami ol'course later tlinn any from which extracts have appealed. Mr. O'Connell's speech is amusing, as exhibiting how utterly unavail- able Sir Robert l'eel's policy in regard to Maynooth is in subduing an agitntion which has deeper causes for its production, which needs organic changes for its repression. Thc Premier's academical education scheme fares badly at thc hands of thc Monster Agitator, and thc Raman Catholic Bishops. All thc threatening proceedings of last year, Sir Edward Sudden's dismissals from thc Magistracy', nnd tho Stnte trials have passed away as a worse than useless provocation to Irish nationality, which is unquestionably identified with O'Connell. Great meetings ire held again, mid the cause of agitation will be ns strong ns ever until the state ol' the représentât ion is amended, and thc in- cubus of thc English C...

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF EDUCATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 3 October 1845

REPORT OF TIIE BOARD OF EDUCATION. Tm; Heport just printed will probably sa- tisfy thc expectations of the public at large. An enemy to the system it represents, may exult in thc trilling diminution of pupils, nod those who hare laboriously obstructed the education it affords, may rejoice that their labour has not been wholly in vain. True, nnnlysis and explanation will deprive them of the honour due to actual victory. They have retarded, but not defeated, thc enlightenment of the people. They have exasperated, but not subdued, thc public resolution. Had the malignity of their op- position been more prudent and disguised, they might have succeeded more amply ; but thc system, thc masters, thc Hoard, the Secretary, have alike suffered from their vi- rulence. Thc Report alludes to new applications for schools in the interior, which are refused from thc deficiency of funds, and to the suspension of building operations during thc uncertainty of Lord Stanley's decision.

CULTIVATION OF FLAX. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 3 October 1845

CULTIVATION OF FLAX. REFERRING to n communication from rt correspondent in a previous number, wc deem it our duty, as an advocate of thc agricultural interest, to strongly call tl ic attention of thc settlers to thc cultivation of this valuable plant, a staple commodity in the English market, and ns an article of ex- port only second in vnlue to wool. Our climate is so admirably adapted for the cultivation of flax, that wc have no he- sitation in affirming that not only tho bot- tom or marsh lands arc eligible, but that even the poorest, and to all appearance, thc least useful ground, would serve to nourish this plant, and we would therefore recom- mend an immediate trial, as there is no want of seed at present, and as this is thc proper season for sowing it. Those who are willing to try thc experiment ought not to delay, nnil in selecting seed to bc very careful that it has not been dried too has- tily, which the want of oil will very soon show, as the oil is the germ of thc future...

THE OBSERVER. HOBART TOWN, FRIDAY, OCT. 3: FREE TRADE. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 3 October 1845

THE OBSERVER. HOBART TOWN, FRIDAY, OCT. 3: FREE TRADE. THE liberation of labour from the yoke of needless legislation, and the full triumph of commercial freedom, cannot be remote, since its opposite exists only by suffefance and prescription, and is abandoned to its ap- proaching fate. It may be assumed that at no period of our national history thc real welfare of Great Britain was ndvanccd by the prevalence of jealous prohibitions and class monopolies. If, however, they were not useful, they accorded with current opi- nions, and were sanctioned by thc maxims of every state. To buy from a foreign mer- chant was deemed equivalent to a wild dissi- pation of nationnl wealth. On these profound calculations, Spain armed her commerce with capital penalties against foreign com- petition, and fixed a maximum of exports to her American provinces, to secure for the smallest possible bulk the greatest demand and the highest profit. She has sunk into poverty nod dotage, and her commerce and he...

IRELAND. I [From the Wain, June 13, the latest paper in the colony,] Dunns, June ll. ACCORDING to tlie reports ¡ti tlie Cork jour- nals, the banquet, in point of numbers pro rent, far eclipsed any similar proceeding. Mr. O'Connell, emboldened by recent legis- lative event«, delivered a speech characterized by a more than ordinary share of eloquent vehemence, now rejecting with scorn the conciliatory advances of the Minister us mean and paltry attempts to swamp thu great ends of agitation, and then, turning fiercely .round, he tells the city members one of whom, Mr. Dan Callaghan, was a guest-that nut they must go at the next election, unless they aro prepared to dis- charge their Parliamentary duties by a close attendance at Conciliation-hall. The dinner was given in a suite of rooms in thc Imperial Hotel. In the gallery Bays tho report : More than 800 ladies were seated, all dressed in full costume, us if at a ball.

Looking down from this seemingly giddy height, over the sombre swelling mass of thu dome of St. Paul's, and on the two Western turrets standing' up bright in tho moon-light, you seethe great city spread out in all its vast- ness beneath and uround ; the river-its rippled surface ailvured with tho moon- beams anil spanned by bridges glittering with points of light reflected on ibo stream,...

SYDNEY INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 3 October 1845

SYDNEY INTELLIGENCE. BY the Waterlily, we have receiveJ Sydney intelligence to the 23rd September. Tho Council had requested that .£5,0(10 out of tho Land Fund might bo placed upon the Supplementary Estimate for tho present year for repairing ronds anil bridges ; but the Go- vernor refused to do so, lest it should he thought that tho Land Fund is liable for those ilems which lie denies. Ho also re- fused to accede to a request to stay proceed ings for Quit Routs until the reply of the Homo Government to an address from the Council should bc received. The districts of Yass and Bathurst had petitioned the Council fur tho introduction of emancipated prisoners from Van Diemen's Land. The Sydney Council and papers reproach Sir George Gipps for not having1 supported thc former petition for thu admission of Australian grain, and refer in terms of praise to tho different course pursued by Sir Eardley Wilmot.

THE ATTRACTIONS OF THE GALLOWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 3 October 1845

THE ATTRACTIONS OF THE GALLOWS. TUESDAY last having been appointed" for the execution of the last accomplice in the dreadful tragedy at New Norfolk, the neigh- bourhood of the city gaol, at an carly hour, exhibited thc spectacle of a dense mass of human beings, which exceeded that which was ever collected on any similar occasion in thc memory of spectators who had not suffered such scenes to pass without their being witnesses of them. From an elevation at a little distance, wc are told, that you might almost have taken the collection of human beings for one body; but sufficiently near to discriminate of what it was com- posed, you found that there were all classes -all sexes, ages, characters, mingled toge- ther. " Thc female form divine" was a prominent ingredient, and the " sweet, plny ful innocence of childhood" had not been left to its gambols at home. Mothers, fond mothcrs.brought there their tender offspring, and fathers exhibited the pride of parentage ¡ or rewarded thc duty ...
