SYDNEY INTELLIGENCE. COLONIAL EXPORTS.-FLAX ANO IIKMl". [I'rom thc Sijtlmij Iln-alit, September 21.] As the Intest season for the sowing of flax lins now arrived, it may be useful to re- mind our agricultural readers of thc fact, noel to mnke some suggestions ns to the proper course to be pursued. This wc should lmve done nt nn enrlicr period, but from nn expectation tlmt the treatise on Flax and Hemp from thc pen of Dr. Camp- bell would have issued from the press in sufficient time to supersede the necessity of nov remarks of ours. Tho imported value of (lax and its seed in thc United Kingdom is stated to bc nbout five millions sterling. The quantity of flax imported in 1811 wns 1,261,2!) 1 cwts, and that of its seed four millions of bushels, nnd these amounts nre doubtless increased nt the present time.

IRELAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 17 October 1845
IRELAND. IRELAND still occupies thc prominent pince in Parliament. Ministers hnvc nt last en- countered, face to face, thc active opposition of Mr. O'Connell to their scheme for nc cndemieal education. The occasion was furnished by going into Committee on thc bill ; a motion also opposed by some of Mr. O'Connell's new Tory allies. Sir James Graham, however, previously explained a few alterations which be has made in the measure : the chief of which are-that the students are to be lodged in liceused board ing-houses, with linlls attached, under the care of Principals, subject to thc immediate control of tlie Visiters ; and that provision is to be made for securing a Parliamentary revision in three years' time of that part of the hill which relates to the appointment of Professors. Such large concessions did not disarm objection. Lord Mahon moved n resolution proposing that Theological Professors should be appointed for tho three denominations in Ireland-Anglo Protestant, Hornau Catho...
THE DEBATE ON NEW ZEALAND. [From the Spectator, June 21.] [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 17 October 1845
THE DEBATE ON NEW ZEALAND. [From the Spectator, June 21.] PARLIAMENT has given three days to the co- lonies! And though the immediate topic brought before the House of Commons was .tho grievances of the youngest and remotest of them-New Zealand-ilie discussion was really of great imporiance and interest ; for it concerned tho whole colonial policy of the country towards settlers and aboriginal races, and the conduct of the official de- partment which of all Government branches most needs reforming-. The discussion »as marked hy talent and painstaking on all sides. Euch of the three days bad its sepa- rate characteristics. On Tuesday, the case for the colonists and the colonising company of New Zealand against the Colonial Oflico, was opened by Mr. Charles Buller, in a speech which may justly bo called great as ! well as long ; disclosing a tissue of arro- ! gancc, disingenuousness, and injustice sel- ? dom equalled even in colonial annals. The wronged parties having been frequently ...
ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 17 October 1845
ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. THE English intelligence brought by thc Calcutta nud the Equestrian reaches to July 2, but we nre deficient in some numbers of our papers between that and our latest dates by previous arrivals. The Equestrian brings ;£20,000 cash for the Commissariat. We give copious extracts of thc British and Fo- reign intelligence ; hut there is nothing of much importance. O'Connell lind resumed his attendance in the House of Commons, where he was, to little purpose, opposing the Academical Educntion Bill. Parliament, it will bc seen, was occupied for three nights iu discussing New Zcnland affairs ; the sum- mary of the debate in thc Spectator, though one-sided in spirit, will bc read with inte- rest. Governor Grey moves from South Australia to the Government of New Zea- land. Sir W. Napier has been appointed Commander-in-Chief of the Forces here. Sir William Follett is dead ; his personal worth, as well as professional talent, is greatly extolled. Mr. Newman, according to g...
