LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. FRIDAY, OCTOIIER 2-1. All present except Mr. O'CONNOR,. HIS EXCELLENCY opened thc Council by asking, before proceeding with the busi- ness on the paper, whether hon. members hod any petitions to present. Ile under- stood there were petitions to bc laid before the Council. Mr. DRY rose and presented petitions from the inhabitants of the Parishes ot Carrick, Illawarra, Avoca, and Little Hamp- den, praying for assistance to establish schools in thc districts.

Mr. DRY.-I have also a petition from jurors in the district of Oatlands, praying for a revision in the Jury Laws, and that they mny he relieved from their duties as jurors in cases where the prisoners are under former convictions, as they do not conceive they arc justly chargeable with the costs for trying convicted offenders, but only for the expenses where their free fel- low colonists are to be tried. The Clerk to the Council read the peti- tion, and Mr. DRY moved that the petit...

DUELLING. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 28 October 1845
DUELLING. THE proceedings of the House of Commons reported in [motlier pngc, on the motion of Mr. Roebuck, condemnatory of the conduct of Mr. Somers, who had sought to provoke the member for Bath to fight a duel, will be read witli interest. The time at which thc motion was made was opportune; thc pub- lic mind had been re-awakened to a sense of the absurdity and the turpitude of duelling, by the fatal issue of the " affair" between Lieutenants Seton and Hawkey. And it will be observed with satisfaction by those who have desired the propagation of a correct public sentiment in respect to duel- ling, that the House of Commons, where every opinion has a representative, did not in the debate in question furnish one speaker who had the hardihood against the general feeling even to insinuate a defence of thc practice. True, the ostensible question be- fore the House was the privilege of speech ; but no one can doubt the motive which prompted a man of Lord Ashley's charac- ter to make him...

THE "CASTLE EDEN." [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 28 October 1845
THE " CASTLE EDEN." THIS fine ship left England on the 19th July, and arrived here on Saturday with troops. She only brought three letters for this colony, and we learn by one which we were allowed to peruse that at the wool sales former prices were maintained. News from America had been received which was rather unfavourable to the maintenance of peace between England and the United States.

THE OBSERVER. HOBART TOWN, TUESDAY, OCT. 28. REPRESENTATIVE GOVERNMENT— PUBLIC MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 28 October 1845
THE OBSERVER. HOHART TOWN, TUESDAY, OCT. 28. RE PU US ENTATI V E GOVERNMENT PUBLIC MEETING. HOWEVER various and multiplied thc mis- fortunes peculiar to this colony, they are produced by that common root from which all other dependencies of thc British Crown derive their proportion of woe. With una- nimous indignation all protest against thc despotic coutroul which is vested in thc hands of n single minister, before whom the interests of millions arc laid prostrate. Vast as thc aggregate interest of thc colonies is, nature has excluded them from combina- tion, and prevented that close comparison of wrongs endured, which awakens sympathy and stimulates resistance. For their op- pression there needs no noisy contrivance, no open array. It is not by artillery and bayonets, but thc steady, cold, nnd constant application of the screw by which their ener- gies are subdued. The colonial system has all the vices without thc compensations of despotism. AVo have all the distrust, appre- hensi...

ROYAL GEOGRAPHICAL SOCIETY. (Lord Colchester, President, in the Chair.) [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 28 October 1845
[ROYAL GEOGRAPHICAL SOCIETY. (Lord Colchester, President, in the Chair.J Six now members were elected into the society. The paper read was, " Considerations against tho supposed existence of a great sea in the interior of Australia," by E. I. Eyre, Esq. ?* An opinion," say» Mr. Eyre, " very generally prevails that the continent of Australia is, comparatively speaking, little more than a narrow crust or barrier inter- vening between on outer and inner sea, this opinion originated with Captain Flinders, and is still entertained by Captain Sturt, Mr Windsor Earl, and others. Mr. Eyre says, it is not without diffidence that he ventures to differ from such authorities, while at the same time he thinks h¡3 own notion borne out by facts and considerations of no little weight. Mr. Eyre admits that the non- existence, at least as far as we know of any large river, with the exception of the Mur- ray, discharging itself into the sea on tho eastern, western, or southern coasts to tho southward ...
THIMBLERIGGING. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 28 October 1845
TIIIMBLEUIGGING. The Thins bas invented a new title for Lord Stanley, which will stick os long- as thal of his barony-" The New Zealand Thimblerigger." He has achieved that honour by high desert and uncommon dex- terity. In the face of the assembled Di- rectors of the New Zealand Company, he undertook to play off his trick with cup and pea, undetected. "Gentlemen," he said, " here is au agreement ; here are the lands you claim. Now, I tn ko the agreement in one hand and the lands in the other. I put down the lands-so ; and the agreement a top of them-so. Now, gentlemen, you are convinced that the lands are under the agree- ment, and you take them on my terms ?" Mr. Buller looked at Mr. Aglionby, and Mr. Aglionby at Mr. Mangles-they said all was right, and agreed to the bargain : but Lord Stanley lifted up his cup, (the agreement.) and no pea (the lands) was there ! All al- lowed that the Thimblerigger who had taken in the Directors of the New Zealand Com- pany could not be detected....

I MEAN lo talk of tha Evangelical Society of Franco only ; that is my commission ; but I wish it to be very clearly understood, that I thus offer no shadow of objection to any of the other Christian channels through which your liberality may he flowine;. In order to understand the importance of the Evangeli lien] Society of France, it is necessary that I should tr¡ve some sketch of the religious state of thing's in France.
