Varieties. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 20 January 1847

9ark!(ctes. -o Loan BnouGnA3I's Nose.-M-any a time and oft have we watched Brougham and his nose holding a familiar confabulation. Occasionally, when he crosses one leg over another, and leans his head on his hand; his nose gets impatient and twitches vieo lently: The noble and learned lord tries to keep the unruly organ quiet; and with that view changes legs and arms, and turns to the other side. But the index of sensitiveness is not to be put down ; it twitches again, as much as to say, " didn't you hear that P. You must get up and answer it." To keep his facial tormentor in a composed state, he walks to the woolsack and chats with Lord Lyind hurst. He comes back again, but the enemy is, by this time, in a state of violent excitement, and leaps like a cat in a bag. Brougham scratches his head,. clears his throat, and, on the fitting opportunity, springs up. If he makes a good speech, nothing can exceed the gratification of the nose. It turns deep purple, pale blue, and assumes oth...

THE SQUATTERS AND PRO-TRANSPORTATIONISTS IDENTIFIED. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 20 January 1847

THE SQUAT-TERS AND PRO-TRANSPORTA TIONISTS IDENTIFIED. IT is worthy of special notice at the pre ·sent time, that the advocates for the renewal of transportation, are precisely those who ought not to have a single voice in the mat 'ter. When England emancipated thei slaves in her West India Colonies, and gave that most magnificent compensation, £20,000,000 for their lost bond services, the planters and .slave-masters were not .the persons whose wishes were <to be gra tified at. the close, as they had not been throughout the entire progress, of this'the most .glorious transaction in English ,his .tory. When .our own admirable ruler, the great and good ,Sir Richard Bourke, framed his new "slave-code",(as he him .self styled it in a despatch to the Secretary of State) recognizing the first principles of justice and humanity, :so far from gratifying the 'wishes, 'or conceding the claims of the' convict assignees, the slave-masters .ofthis land, he brought down upon himself th...

SCULLER'S MATCH BETWEEN ROBERT COOMBES AND CHARLES CAMPBELL, FOR £100 A SIDE AND THE CHAMPIONSHIP OF THE THAMES. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 20 January 1847

SCULLER'S MATCH BETWEEN ROBERT COOMBES AND CHARLES CAMPBELL, FOR £100 A SIDE AND THE CHAMPION SHIP OF THE THAMES. (From Bell's Life in London, August 23.) This event, which has for some time past been the subject of eager expectation, amongst aquatic sports. men particularly, and of considerable speculation as to the result, among all classes in almost every part of the kingdom, came off on Wednesday last, from Putney to Mortlake. Two or three steamers were specially chartered to accompahy the match ; one of them, the Childe Harold, by Messrs. Cownden and Wentzell, the boat builders, who had been entrusted with the construction of both of the boats destined for this important event, and which we may say in passing, fully justified the confidence placed in the builders, being built after the most approved modern construction, and weighing, within 21b., the same, Cambell's being the heavier, and weighing only 10 lb. At Putney the sight was very animated, the concourse of spectators be...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 20 January 1847

`We 'CKeEn'a BalthJournalj) lately published a short account of a person who has been pretending to work miraculous cures in the neighbourhood of Stroud., The following letter addressed by Mr. Barber, of Staplefield, Sussex, to a London Journal, supplies further information of the gifted operator: " As I see Couahman is carrying on his schemes in Gloucestershire, and as I live close to the scene of his late actions, it may not be amiss to detail to you what .! have seen aind heard here. About two years since a'fanatic shoemaker wrote to Couch man to come down from Plickley in Kent, where lihe then.resided, to cure a woman wholhad lost the use of her limbs.: this was given out; a motley group of invalids of every description met him; and im mediately the most absurd stories of his pretended cures spread like wildfire over this neighbourhood.

FANATICISM IN STROUD. TO THE EDITOR OF THE "CHELTENHAM FREE PRESS." [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 20 January 1847

FANATICISM?IN STROUD. TO THE EDITOR OF THE '. CHELTENHAM FREE PRESS?" Sir,-I cannot adequately express the sensation which is at present felt among the more superstitious and illiterate, and even among those of the higher branches of the inhabitants of Stroud, and the vil lages contiguous, by :the appearance of a soi-disant prophet, who bids fair to add another link to the chain of religious impostors. As .I always feel a pleasure in dehuding the empiric of his mask, and of exposing hypocrisy in her:naked deformity to the world, I sought an interview with this impostor. I certainly must candidly confess that my sanguine anticipations *were not realized, forI expected from the reports current to have found in the '" prophet," aclever, subtle, crafty, deep, designing, extortioner; but, on the contrary,.I found in him such consum mate ignora'ice, that a child in leading strings might both have exposed and detected him. It is an anomaly of our day, repugnant to notions formed in accorda...

WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 20 January 1847

WAR. A very interesting work has been recently pub lished in London, the author of which traces the history df the destructive wars which man has waged against man to the remotest antiquity. We find an admirable review of this publication in the Friend of India, from which we make the following extract : * The work begins with the oldest book extant, that of Job, which is also the earliest record we have of military science, and gives evidence of the existence at the primaeval period in which it was written, of military divisions and arrangements, of the use of m usical instruments in war to encourage and command, of the use of defensive armour, and even of cavalry. The land of Uz, has been iden tified by very recent discoveries with that of Awsi In Arabia, and thU liatriarch Job appears to have been a prince of the ancient tribe of Ad, a mighty and highly civilized race, which is supposed to have perished in the same dreadful famine mentioned in Genesis which was over all the' eait...

EARL GREY AS AN ORATOR. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 20 January 1847

EARL GREY AS AN. ORATOR. (From Fraser's Magazine.) Earl Grey can never take the highest rank as an orator. An effective speaker, and a ready, practised debater, he already is, butthe wants those personal attributes which are so essential in completihng the full charm of eloquence," that there is scarcely an instance on record of a man becoming a first-rate orator without them. But, in spite of the load of adverse.circumstankes against which Earl Grey has to bear up; notwithstanding his harsh, shrill, dis cordant voice, his unexpressive countenance, and features so far removed from the standard of manly beauty, he has proved himself no ineffective antago nist of the chief speakers of the day. His intel lectual powers, aided by very extensive knowledge of the most varied kind, 'which he can bring to bear upon abstract questions of policy on the most minute affairs of daily legislation, have carried him through the difficulties of his position. When he left the House of Commons he had ...

EARTHQUAKE AT LEGHORN. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 20 January 1847

EARTHQUAIKE AT LEGHORN. Leghorn, Aug. 17.--A violent earthquake has taken place here, which has created a complete panic among the inhabitants. On the 14th, at twenty minutes after twelve o'clock, noon, the first shock took place. It was preceded by a loud subterranean noise, like distant thunder, the alarming effect of which was terrible. The shock of the earthquake lasted seven or eight seconds. The oscillations were at first perpendicular, and appeared as if produced by a lifting up of the earth. The oscillations then took the direction from southwest to northeast, five or six times repeated. At this moment tile shaking of the houses was so violent that it was with diffi culty people could prevent themselves from falling. Furniture was everywhere displaced and upset, and the bells of the churches rung with, the violence of the agitation. - The walls of many houses were split to the.foundlations.- The population rushed into the streets in the greatest state of alarm, and crowds of...

THE LABOUR MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 20 January 1847

-THE LABOUR MARKE;IT. (From ,ox's Lectures to the Working Classes.) " The corn market," " the cattle market," " the fish market," ", the hay market"-these are terms which express something visible and tangible. One knows where to have them. Most large towns have localities thus designated; and at least the buyers and sellers " prate of their whereabout." It is not so with the labour market; many know not where to find that. It is not to be seen, unless, perhaps, a shadow of it at a statute fair in the country, where the labourers and servants come to he hired,dressel in their best, though not so gaily as the Duke of Buckingham decked out his labourers to receive the Queen. But notwithstanding this difference, the labour market is a reality, and not the less so for our not knowing where to assign it " a local habi tation." In fact, it extends to all places all the world over. Wherever there is one person who wants work ,done, and ,can pay fogr it, and another who for pay is willing t...
