ENGLAND. The following series of extracts give; the sum of the proceedings con sequent% upon the chauge of ministry. The Premier intended to make a declaration of his projected line of policy, and then to prorogue the parliament for the . space' of five months. Sir Robert Peel's declara., tion was looked forward to with intense anxiety. Tihose members of the new cabinet : whl. had seats itn the House of Commons, must of course go through .the ordeal of another election... Major Mercer and Messrs. Yald.: wyn and Gardner, obtained an interview with Lord Stanley im mediately after his appointment to office. but the result of the confer ence has not been made public.

LECTURE ON EDUCATION. DELIVERED BY MR. J. S. STUWART, IN THE SCHOOL-ROOM, CORIO, ON MONDAY 17TH JANUARY. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 24 January 1842
LECTURE ON EDUCATION, DELIVERED BY InR. J. S. BTCWART, I~V .TLrEscHOOL-iOOM, CORIOt ON MONDAY 17TH JANUALtY. It is curious to observe the diversity of opinion that exists when an indivi dual claims the attention of an audience on a partially secular subject like the present. Some are apt to lay down the observations that are made as un. suitable to the subject; others may consider them dull and faulty in the delineation; while another class may lay down'the substance as the produc tion of ammadmian, or as the ill.calcu lated breathings of a crack-brained enthusiast. Under these considerations, it be comes the individual who takes upon hilself the important task of address ing an assembly of his fellow subjects, that. his words, in the language of in spiration, should be "'' few and well chosen." i regret that the duty of delivering a lecture on this all import ant subject, haintnot fallen into hands more'capable of doing it justice than the humble individual who now stands before yo...
