ENGLISH. DO THE TIMES MAKE THE MAN? [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 7 October 1845
ENGLISH. I DO THE TIMES MAKE THE MAN 1 A witty writer of our day maintains, that whenever the times need euch and such a character, it is sure to arise. Ho believes that the right man ever comes to thc surface of events ; and that the leading' spirits in a community may he regarded as exponents of the pervading sentiments at thc period. He ; holds thut thu anchorite and the fakir de- note the prevalence of ascetic religious fuel- ing' ; the sturdy Luther that of unceasing craving after religious freedom of thought. Tho searching reasonings of a Hobbes, he believes were prompted by a strong appetite in the seventeenth century for philosophical theory; whilst tho mild and attractive but inconclusive writings of a Dugald Stewart, and a Mackintosh, naturally find favor with the less robust-minded community of tho nine- teenth. These out of many more examples are cited in illustration of his proposition : which, nevertheless, we cannot allow to sup- ply a complete explanation of tho succ...

OATLANDS CRIMINAL COURT. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 10 October 1845
OATLANDS CRIMINAL COURT. Two privates of the 11th Regiment were convicted of having- broken into tho house of Mr. Cotterell, Bothwell. In addressing them the Chief Justice said : "I shall remand you for tho present, but you may rely I shall pass a very different sentence to what you calculate upon. I have not the slightest doubt of your having committed this crime for thc express purpose of being transpnrted." They were afterwards sentenced to two years hard labour. It is apparent that soldiers consider tho life of a Probationer more agreeable than their own. What a comment on the present system ! While the Court was sitting: the following scene took place on the main road, neur Oatlands, and in thc middle of tho day. A man left his carl loaded with wheat and Bomo boxes for a moment, when some probation- ers with the wood cart of the hiring- depot of Oatlands carno up and proceeded to plunder the cart. At this moment Mr, Burbury made his appearance, and was immediately attacked by t...

PROBATIONISM. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 10 October 1845
P R O B A TI O N I S M. WE copy thc following from thc Morning Post of lGth May, 1845. *? Wc observe in two Hobart-town papers, thc Courier and the Advertiser, much space devoted to discussions on convict discipline, hut the question appears still to be too much regarded in n one-sided aspect in its bearing upon local economical interests. It is not, however, quite exclusively so regard- ed, and thc apprehensions of thc colonists appear to bc alive to thc moral evils to which their offspring nre exposed from the excessive accumulation of prisoners. This accumulation to excess is thc grnnd error of the modified system of transportation, and it operates, in more ways than one, to de- feat thc system. It is unfavourable to thc mornl improvement of thc prisoner, by de- priving him of a prospect of continuous em- ployment with good wages on Iiis libera- tion, or by casting him upon shifts and contrivances to maintain himself, and by making his class thc majority in the com- munity, thus ...
DUTY ON AUSTRALIAN GRAIN. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 10 October 1845
DUTY ON AUSTRALIAN GRAIN. LAST week we presented to our readers a copy of the Petition to thc House of Com- mons, which Mr. Lowe proposes to the Legislative Council of New South Wales to adopt, praying for the admission of Aus- tralian grain into England nt a nominal duty. Wc now refer again to this subject with n view to call on the members of our Legislative Council, and on thc Colonists in general to follow a similar course. In introducing thc subject Mr. Lowe said "He thought it would bc of some advan- tage to offer n few observations in order to shew the importance not only of petitions being sent home by the Council, but of I their being sent also from every district in the colony, in order to shew thc Home Government, that the claim that was mndc was a just claim, and that thc peo- ple of thc colony were determined to enforce it." Tlie Colonial Secretary manifested no subservient spirit to the unjust policy of thc Home Government, but manfully supported the colonial claims. I...

THE OBSERVER. HOBART TOWN, FRIDAY, OCT. 10. THE MEETING OF COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 10 October 1845
THE OBSERVER. HOBART TOWN, FRIDAY, OCT. 10. THE MEETING OF COUNCIL. THE Legislative Council is to meet on the 21st instant, though no despatches have ar- rived bearing on our claims for compensa- tion. Thc unofficial members of Council should therefore renew their efforts for a Committee of Enquiry ns to the amount ex- pended by the colony for British purposes. This would enable his Excellency to place before Lord Stanley a fair debtor and cre- ditor account ; he might show, hy com- paring our revenue and expenditure with that of other colonies, to what an extent we arc injured by penal institutions. For it cannot bc repeated too often, that the entire cause of mischief originates in a system which is one of exaction, imposition, and spoliation, which diverts thc revenues of thc colony to objects foreign from its interests, which concentrates the entire cost of crimi- nal justice, and which scatters through thc length and breadth of the land a devouring army of depredators. The burd...

HonAiiT TOWN, 10th OcToiir.n, 1815. Since our last about "OOO bushels of wheat have been sold for shipment to South America, and about 9000 bushels will be taken by the French vessel Amattry ; both quantities will bc shipped from Launceston. Thc Commissariat at Launceston have taken 2/ÜÜÖ bushels wheat at prices varying from ?ls. Gd) to r>s. 4-5d. per bushel. Though there arc still some speculators in the market wc have not beard of any snles above 5s. per bushel. An opinion is gnining ground that Sydney will require a large quantity from ns before harvest, though the lust accounts from there were not favourable. The Sydney grnin market is in very few hands, who have sufficient power to keep it down, nt least for a time, to suit their own purposes. Wheat. 5s. per bushel. Harley. 5s. to 5s. 3d. ditto.

Agriculture. NEW DRILL-DRESSING FOR TURNIPS. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 10 October 1845
agrimlturc. NEW DRILL-DRESSING FOR TURNIPS. To 1 qr. bone-dust, add 1 cwt. of salt and 10 gallons of water ; mix thom well ; mean- while, mix l£cwt. of sulphuric acid with 10 gallons of water, gradually, and lei it cool; when nearly cold, pour some of it, say a gallon, gently over the bone and salt, over the whole surface, to prevent much fuming of muriatic acid, and mix it in ; after au hnur (or when it ceases to fume) add an- other gallon in the same way ; and so on till al! is in. The sulphuricacid decomposes tho salt and part of the bone; producing sul- phate of soda and gypsum, and seining free muriatic and phosphoric acids. Tlie muri- atic acid penetrates the remaining bone, and renders it soluble without decomposition. The whole may digest together a fuw days or weeks, if convenient. Tho result will be a mixture of sulphate of soda and gypsum, with bones rendered soluble by muriatic acid. Tho bone must bo genuine, and not mixed with oyster-shells, etc., as they will neutralis...
