r lt A N C E . [From our Special Correspondent.] PAKIS, June 10, 1S-15. Our Parliament lias been discussing: thc Algerian Hiulget. lt is evident that Franco is deceived, itt flattering herself year by year that fcho has subjugated the Arab tribes. Had they any disposition to submit them- selves, they would, long since, have given up their chief. Abd-ül-Kader. Wc should not see them, with every tulum of spring or autumn, resuming the ir urms, notwithstand- ing repented defeats, und in spite of tho ne- cessity of succumbing to tho superiority of regular forces. True, it costs France dear to maintain her army; hut it is kept in play; and thus the military spirit, which fifteen years of peace must have gradually undermined, is kept alive. Only wc are deceived hy the des- patches of Marshal Hugeaud, Duke of I s I y ; ami colonization, in thc promotion of which soldiers and Trappists ate alike employed, makes tm progress.

PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 24 October 1845
POUT PHILLIP. ExriREES.-The long- ponding question between the local Government and the Com- missariat, as to whether the expenses of transporting parties to Van Diemen's Land who have already served a sentence of trans- portation in the colony, and been again con- victed, are to bi a charge upon the colonial revenue or the military chest, has been de- cided by a despatch from Lord Stanley, bearing date in March last, a copy of which was forwarded from head quarters to ¡he commissariat here, upon a requisition being made to that department, for the expenses incurred in the removal of Turncock, con- victed of perjury, and another, per Fttjuig ffslt to Hobart Town. In his despatch his Lordship decides tho matter in a very few words, directing that the expenses of such removal shall be chargeable upon the military chest only, in the case nf men con- victed who at the time are undergoing an original sentence.

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 24 October 1845
ENGLISH KXTltACTS. THE IÎISHOP OF EXKTRR'S CHAIIOR.-The Church and Slate Gazette, a well-written paper, the advocate, it is generally consider- ed, of sound Cluirch principles, thus notices the charge :-Our confined space compels us to exceeding brevity in our remarks upon this important, and we may add, not altoge- ther satisfactory document. We say, " not altogether satisfactory," because if there be much with «Inch we agree there is not a little from which we arc obliged to distent. We thank this learned prelate for his asser- tion ol the authority of the Church-his de- fence of her doctrines-hts eulogium on her principles, his claims on her behalf that she shall possess the enjoyments of her rights. But on the other hand we have to deplore, ar.d we do most deeply deplore the spirit, m and even some of the expressions reported in this remarkable charge. The savour of charity is not in it i the prevoiling tono is ono of bitterness. It is calculated more to exasperate the laity tha...

SOUTH AUSTHALIA. THE "HERJEEBHOY RUSTOMJEE PATTLE" &nbsp; FROM GERMANY. We have to-day to announce the arrival of the Herjeebhoy Rustomjee Pattle, the &nbsp; long-expected ship from Bremen, with 262 German immigrants, after a voyage of 117 days from port to port. Her passage, has been a pleasant and prosperous one through- out, with the exception of Sunday last, when the weather was so rough and stormy, that the ship was nearly thrown on her beam ends, and even the sailors admitted that they were in considerable danger for a few hours. Tho passengers she brings are of rather a superior class, and comprise many work- men of trades much wanted here; for ex- ample, there are several linen, cotton, and cloth weavers, who seriously contemplate following up their various vocations, and speak confidently of being able to establish blanket, cloth, linen, and cotton manufac- tures : there are also several miners, two chemists, and a practical assayer, besides the usual sprink...

S U P R E M E CO U R T. CRIMINAL SITTINGS. Before His Honor Mr. Justice Montagu, and a Civil Jury. TUESDAY, 21ST OCTOBER, 1845. THE Sessions opened this morning with a heavy calendar, several prisoners were arraigned, when the trials proceeded as follow : James Ryan was found guilty of stealing some wearing apparel, and other articles, the property of William Ramsay, at the Green Ponds. There was nothing particular in this case be- yond the fact of the prisoner's extreme levity ; on being sentenced to be transported for life, he smiled, when the learned Judge called him back, and asked him if he was a probationer ? The pri- soner said he was, when his Honor observed that he had no great cause for rejoicing, he had only to serve two years of his probation, at the ex- piration of which he might have been assigned, and become comfortable, but now he had sub- jected himself to transportation for life, which would send him to Norfolk Island for five or six years, where he would have to e...
