HOSPITAL. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 27 December 1841

HOSPITAL. We are happy to hear that a great benefit is about to be conferred upon the residents in the Geelong district, by the foundation of an Hospital, upon a plan which will approach as nearly to the character of a public institution as it is possible for any private etablish- ment to attain. Dr. Clerke, whose character as a medical practitioner requires no eulo gium at our hands, has determined upon appropriating the three brick cottages adjoining his residencee, as an   hospital for the reception of patients from the country, who often find great difficulty in procuring quiet lodgings in town. This arrangement will be found particularly convenient for set- tlers whose servants meet with acci- dents, &c. which latter are too fre- quently neglected, or left to the tender mercies of careless keepers of lodging houses. The expenses incurred upon behalf of the patienits must of course be de- frayed by the parties sending them, and those patients only can be adm...

A BARREL WITHOUT HOOPS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 3 January 1842

A BAlIIlEL WITfOU'r HOOP's, Flomn S'RnI Slick.' The English empire, it may be obser. ved, is the greatest the world ever saw. The sun aever sets upon it. The banner of England floats on every breeze and on every sea. So many parts and pieces, however, require good management end great skill.to bind and hold them together. Now, the most beautiful thing of thei kind, not mechanical, is a barrel. None but a. real cooper can make one so as to hold water without leaking; indeed, it is not every copper can do it, for'there are bungling coopers, as well as hunt; ling statesmen ;. observe. how many staves there are in a barrel-how well they fit-how tight they all come toge. titer-how firm and secure the, hoois keep them in their several places. When it is right done, it.wilinot leak one drop, and if you set it.upon an. end, or lay it. down upon its side, or roll it'over and over, it will seem as if it was all solid wood. Now, in time, through the heat of the sun and rolling about, the cask ...

A STREET SCENE IN DUBLIN. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 3 January 1842

A STREET SCENE IN DUBLIN. Fromn 1 Charles O'Mithlley.' Amiong the many peculiar tastes which dis;inguishetd Mr. Francis Web ber, was ail extraordinary fancy for street-begging; he had,-over and over won large sums upon his success in that dillicult walk; and so perfect were hi disguises, both of dress, voice, and manner, that he actually at one timge, succeeded in obtaining charity from his very opponent in the wager. lie wrote balllads with the greatest La ciiity, and sung thetm with infinite pa thosu and humour; and the old woman ut the corner of College-green was cer tain of an audieuce when the severity of" the night would leave all other mninstrelsy deserted. As these feats of Jonglerie usually terminated in a row, it was a most amusing part of the transaction to see the singers part taken by the mob against the college men, who, growing impatient to carry him off to supper somewhere, would invariably be obliged to have a fight for the booty. Now 'it chanced that a few evenings...

A gentleman who lately left in.formed us that the entire plains were as bare us-a turnpike road ; that the carcases of cattle were literally strewed.. in hundreds around every waterhole, and that the very air tas tainted by the enormous masses of put rescent animal matter that lay thickly strewed wherever there was water. Great part of the surviving stock of the -plains either had .been or was in the course of being driven off in search of other and more favorable runs. Many had gone with their flocks and herds to the Clarence River, which was described as a-very superior cattle country, but too low and damp...

PIESERVATION OF WOOD. Dr. Bachlines a FrenCh' chemist, hias communicated to the Instittue a peculiar process, which being applied While th'e tree is yet in the ground and in'full leaf, renders the timber ' incorrupti. ble, unalterable by moistnre or dry ness, indestructible by insects, elastic, and incombustible. Moreover, " in this wonderful operation the ordinary kinds of woods acquire the properties of.the more. precious, becorne susceptible of polish, and can be inpregnated with, the richest colours and odours'." Thei plan consists in making use of the.vital and capillary forces, by wthich the juices ascenr from the roots of vegeta bles, and are circulated through their tiasues, so as to cause ditferenti fluids to be sucked up and distrihuted through the plant, and so absorbed into the most intimate structures as to produce the objects in view.' For this purpose, a ,tree in full vegetation is cut-down near the roots, and the lower extremity im;; mersed iina tub containing the re...

Alexander, was ambitious of be ing beloved by his subjects; Nicholas scorns their love, and is determined to he feared." Though his figure is finer and more commanding'-than that of Alexander, he is less pleasing; his as pect is stern, and no smile graces his lips. Alexander was xiild and affable; severity looks out from beneath the brow of Nicholas ; hut though insolent ,nd ha'rsh; he has an 'ir of distrustful timidity. The traits 'of his character resemnbles those of his ferocious brother Constantine, with this material differ. ence-that, as the fury of the latter Was vented upon individuals, that of Nicholas is directed 'against classes of met), races, and whole nations.

There is no other way, to obtain prosperity or liberty for Irelaud but the repeal of tlhe union.
