LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 10 October 1845
LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. ROBBERIES' AGAIN.-In addition to what wo noticed in our last, we have further to rccotd thc following audacious robberies. On Saturday afternoon last, one of the Penitentiary sauntcrcrs, with the utmost impudence opened a window in Mr. Henry Wilkinson's cottage near the new Cathedral, and thereby gained access to thc par- lour, and was making off with a package of sugar, and another of ten, when Mi. Wilkinson entered thc room; the fellow jumped out of the window, but wns caught by Mr. Wilkinson, nnd was given into custody; he was tried nt the Police Outee on Monday, and dealt with summarily. On Sunday last, about 4 o'clock, three neatly dressed men, entered the house of Mr. Yardley, Grocer, &c, in Macquarie Street, during the absence of him and his wife, they cooly walked in at the front door, which they opened tvith a false key, and, after a long and diligent search, they carried off nearly a pound in money, four or five lbs. of tobacco, and two lbs. of ...
THE MIDLAND AGRICULTURAL ASSOCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 10 October 1845
THE MIDLAND AGRICULTURAL ASSOCIATION THE Annual Show, held under the auspices of this association, took place ou Wednes- day, when there was a larger assemblage of visitors in Campbell Town than on any previous occasion of tlie same kind ; every inn and house was crowded. Some very fine stock was exhibited ; but on the whole the show did not, we have been informed, come up to what it had been on previous occasions, and it will be seen that for some descriptions of stock no prize was awarded. In our next we shall give a list of the stock which was offered for prizes, with awards. Shortly after thc announcement of the sward of the judges, the doors were opened for dinner at Mr. Englebert's, and the room was immediately filled. The dinner was a cold one ; hut it embraced in plentifulness every description of meat, and of thc very best, and it was laid out with grcnt taste. A large piece pf salted beef from thc prize ox nt the previous year's show, which had been presented by Mr. Stump,...

LITERATURE. -~.KQS- j The Diplomatic Correspordence of the Hight Honourable Richard Hill, Envoy at the Court of Savoy during the reign of Queen Anne. Edited bj' the Ucv. AV. Hinckley, U.A. Tart I. Murray. IN noticing' Marlborough's Dispntehcs, we lind to regret that their appearance was delayed to a period when the interest in the wnrs of the successions had become nearly as faint as that in the struggle be- tween Pompey and Crcsar ; but the volumes before us relate to an episode in the Suc- cession War which attracted very slight notice from contemporaries, and has a still slighter claim on the attention of the pre- sent generation. Victor Amadeus, Duke of Savoy, at whose Court Mr. Hill was mi- nister, is chiefly remarkable for thc impar- tiality with which he dealt out treachery, and the high price which he obtained for every act of treason. Ile was married to the eldest daughter of Henrietta, Duchess of Orleans, the youngest daughter of Charles I., and through the influence of th...

INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 14 October 1845
INDIA. Wc received yesterday Singapore papers to thc end of July, which contain Calcutta news to the beginning of that month. Everything remained quiet ott thc conti- nent of India, although there nre still ru- mours of an intended descent on the Pun- jaub, which will end in adding that country to the British dominions. Thc Dutch set- tlement nt Java was in a bankrupt state, nnd thc gnvernor had issued n proclamation for UKKimg the bank to redeem its notes in specie. It was supposed that a treaty was about to bc entered into with the chiefs of Horneo, for n cession of a point of land on which there was abundance of conl ; the Admiral with rather a strong fleet, had pro- ceeded there for the purpose of enforcing thc arguments of our Plenipotentiary. Trade in all the British settlements appears to be in n flourishing state.

SYDNEY INTELLIGENCE. WE hnve received papers to thc 27th Sep- tember. In consequence of n decline in thc price of wheat holders refuse to sell. There is no news of any importance ; however, thc following extracts from China and India papers will he found interesting : CHINA NEWS. The Singapore papers which came to hand by thc Fly contain extracts from Hong- kong papers to thc end of J une. We re- gret to find thnt the trnde of Hongkong is decreasing, it being positively asserted that there is less trade now thnn there was in 1813. The reason is stated to he thc arbi- trary conduct of the government, or rather the governor, and thc vexatious regulations respecting thc native traders, who now shun the port. The Peninsular and Oriental Steam Navigation Company had estab- lished an agent at Hongkong, who lind given notice that from the 1st September, a steamer would bc despatched every month to meet thc overland mail. One of thc most dreadful accidents that ever occurred took place in C...

PETITION. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 14 October 1845
PETITION. TIIK memorial ngninst allowing numbers of prisoners from the Penitentiary to parade the streets on Saturday, which we published last week, is that which is now in course of signature at Launceston. The following pe- tition against the practice here has been placed in all thc banks, and we trust will bc numerously signed. A grosser outrage ngninst all propriety than thc ono to which the petition refers has perhaps never been perpetrated, and wc doubt whether thc ex- istence of such an evil would would even be credited in any part of the civlised world. We may imagine with what amazement the citizens of London would read on order of Council in thc Gazette, permitting the inmates of Newgate to stroll, free from all control, through thc streets ; yet to such an insult arc the people of Van Diemen's Land subjected ! 1'etititm tn his Excellency Sir K.wtni.EY WILMOT, Lieutenant-dorernnr of thc Island nf l'a» Diemen s Land and its Jirprnilencies.
