THE COURT OF ViC1i-ADMIuALY.--ate understand that the Marshal of this Court has resigned his office, and that this resignation is owing to the principles laid down by the Judges of the Supreme Court in their decision of the case of Elyard v. Brenan. delivered on Wednesday last. In this case it was held by their Honors that although the legal gentlemen acting as proctors in the Court of Vice-Admiralty were the parties on the record. still, as they became so wholly in consequence of their fiduciary character, they would not be resrou sible to the Marshal for the fees of court, unless by reason of a long established usage to that effect, of which, in that case, there was no evidence. As those who sue in this court are nearly always without property, to which the Marshal could look as secu rity for the payment of his fees, it is highly probable that, in the face of such a decision, no person will be found to take the office, in which case this Court. the operation of which has been so l...

DREADFUL STORM AT WINDSOR. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 10 February 1847

DREADFUL SrORfM AT WINDSOR. (From the Herald of Monday) We have to record the particulars of one of the most terrific thunder and hail storms which over happened in this district, perhaps in the colony. On Thursday evening, a gathering was visible in the distant south-black clouds met each other, as if in secret conclave, while the horizon became gradually dark as the shades of night closed upon the fated town of Windsor. Suddenly the wind, from great heat, blew cool, and from a gentle gale grew strong and violent. The storm commenced-the lightning slushed exceedingly vivid, and the thunder followed, rolling with awful solemnity. Rain, hail, and tempest, came in their course. The whole firmament seemed convulsed I The watery clement poured in torrents, and spouted most furiously from the foun tains of the heavens; while the winds, dashing through the rain, and sounding deep and hollow, seemed distracted. The hail-stones were of an im mense size, many of them equalling a Iron's egg ;...

lTaoistCrs. * -0- -SEDUCTION, SUICIDE. AND RavENoE.-A young .lady named Eulalie, now aged 18, about.two years ago lost her widowed mother, whom till then she had never quitted. She came to Paris on the invita. tion of an aunt, who undertook to find a ituatios for her. She was presently offered, and she accepted, the place of superintendent of the house of one Barnage, a bachelor of 45, who promised'to be as a father to her, and ultimately to provide for her, -should her conduct be satisfactory to him. Eulalie was beautiful-Barnage soon manifested intentiois which were anything but paternal; he left untried no means of success, and finally the young lady became his victim. In a few days, however, she bitterly repented her fault, and at once determined on the course she would pursue. She declared to Barnage that nothing could induce her to continue in a position so repugnant to her feelings, and so contrary to the principles in which she had been brought up. and consequently that she ...

ABD-EL-KADER. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 10 February 1847

ABD-EL-KADER. :(From El Clamor Publico.) For a long time past Abd-el-Kader has kept up an active correspondence with the Emperor of Mo rocco and his Ministers, who have always supplied him with powder, muskets, and uniforms for his troips; and.those supplies, of the value of seven millions of rials, have always been punctually paid for. The Emir also procures the same articles from Gibraltar, through the medium of some English and Jewish houses, which have agents in the empire; several of them are Consuls of France on the coast of Morocco. This accounts for the Emperor's re fusal to admit as Consul, Captain Pellissier, who certainly would not have sutlered such a trade. The Emperor, however, has never concealed his ad miration of Abld-el-Kader-an admiration amount ing to fanaticism, as they may have seen who. have lived in the intimacy of either the Emir or the Emperor. We shall mention but one fact in con firmation of what we state. Until the French ex pedition to Morocco and the b...

CONTINENTAL SNOBS. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 10 February 1847

CONTINENTAL SNOBS. (From Punch.) Now that September has come, and all our Par liamentary duties are over, perhaps no snobs are in such high feather as the Continental snobs. .1 watch these daily as they commence their migration from the beach at Folkeston. I see shoals of them depart (not, perhaps, without an innate longing too to quit the island along with those happy snobs.) Farewell, dear friends, I say, you little know that theindividual who regards you from the beach is your friend and historiographer and brother. 1 went to day to see our excellent friend Snooks, on board the Queen of the French; many scores of snobs were there, on the deck of that fine ship, marching forth in their pride and bravery. They will be at Ostend in four hours; they will inundate the Continent next week; they will carry into far lands the famous image of the British snot. I shall not see them-but am with them in spirit; and indeed, there is hardly a country in the known and civilized world in which t...

THE RAILWAY RUIN. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 10 February 1847

THE RAILWAY RUIN. (From the Freeman's Journal.) Railway mania was the phrase last year. It must soon give way to railway ruin. Our readers are aware that during the recent session of Parliament every man of sense and prudence, who took any part iq the parliamentary discussions, pressed upon the attention of the legislature, and of the Minister, the necessity of protecting the too confiding public from the terrible consequences of the companionship into which they had entered. It unfortunately happened' hqwever, thrt there were railway kings, and railway generals,and railway troops, In the form of directors, and committee men, and promoters, and agents, whose influences were too potent to give the fair and honest trader a chance in the competition. These -men, too, had means of access to those in power, and ready channels through which influence was brought to bear upon parliamentary men, who, .themselves'knowing little of the subject and less of the consequences, lent too ready an e...

WHAT CAN BE DONE FOR THE PEOPLE ? [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 10 February 1847

WHAT CAN BE DONE FOR TIlE PEOPLE? r (From Lloyd's Weekly Paper, Sept. 2 .) f ' hen the country insisted upon the passing of t the Reform Bill, it was not to secure the triumph of c any particular party in the state, but to effect an c amelioration of its social condition. It was not so F much the abstract political right that was cared for, a as the good government which at was presumed t, would follow, and the improvement in our social condition therewith connected. So, when the coun try rose against the injustice involved in the Corn Laws, and forced a hostile legislature to pronounce their doom, it was not that that a few large manu facturers might increase their production and pro fit; nor even that the poorer classes might obtain their week's supply of bread at a few pence less in cost. The Corn Laws, like the rotten boroughs, were looked upon as means employed by the aris- f tocracy for maintaining an unjust and pernicious l domination, and dislocating the whole framework of s...
