With a view to reduce my expenditure, I have also increased the nu...

ATROCIOUS ATTEMPT UPON THE LIFE OF THE QUEEN ON CONSTI- TUTION-HILL. I (From the Observer, )_ \ liiE metropolis was startled on Monday even- ing, May 30, by a report that an attempt had been made on the life of her Majesty the Queen ; and immediately the report was coulinned by the statement of Sir Robert Peel in the House of Commons, there followed an almost univer- sal burst of commingled shame and indignation -of shame that there should be an English- man so brutalized and degraded as to desite to terminate the existence of a sovereign who bears her great faculties so meekly, who sympathises so deeply for the sufferings of the humblest'of her subjects, mid the happy and graceful tenor of whose domestic ¡if« is equally instructive to the highest and lowest -of indignation that England should be a second time disgraced in the estimation of the world by so wicked and atrocious a treason. We subjoin all the particulars that have come to our knowledge. At about a quarter past six o'cl...

WEDNESDAY, JULY 27. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Morning Herald — 6 October 1842

Wednesday, July 27. The Honorable C. D. Riddell, Esq., Co- lonial Treasurer, called in and exa- mined : 1. The Committee would wish to leam the opinion formed by you, from your ob- servation of the progress of land sales, as to the prospect of obtaining a revenue during the next twelve months, from that source ? I think with regard to grazing land in the Colony, there is very little chance of raising mujh revenue at the pre- sent minimum price. I think some reve- nue should be obtained from good suburban land, if such exist in the neighbourhood of Brisbane Town. 2. Have you calculated what minimum price would be such, as to render it pro- fitable to a person to become the pur- chaser of a large extent, for grazing pur- poses? I have made some calculations, Though not any very precise ; I have been informed by very competent authorities, and I am myself disposed to think, that the average quantity of land required to feed one sheep, is not less than from three to five acres; the actu...

Wk received yesterday English papers to Juue 10, being upwards of one month later than those which had previously come to hand. ' It is with the deepest regret, we had almost said shame, that we inform our readers that an attempt was made on the 29th May to assassinate Uhr Majesty, who, by the goodness of God's Providence, escaped injury. The person who was guilty of this atrocious act was a young mnn of bad character, named Francis, a cabinet-maker by trade, and who was em- ployed as a workman in the mechanist's department at one of the Theatres. Ile gave no reason for attempting to per- petrate so heinous an offence. Ile was committed to take his trial for high treason. Full particulars of this event will be found among the extracts in another column. The rumour of the destruction of nearly two thousand houses in the city of Ham- burg-a confla...

STATE OF TRADE. (From the Liverpool Albion, June 6.) [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Morning Herald — 6 October 1842

STATE OF TRADE. I (From the Liverpool Albhn, June 6. j I Manchester.-l'Ile improved state of the trade, which we said, some time ngo, was shortly to be. expected, has continued, and the market is very firm, prices being, per- haps, a little higher than last week. A con- siderable amount of business is still doing in power-loom printers, and it is our opinion that their price will rise still higher, as stocks are low, and the season of the year is approaching in which they will come into request. The beautiful weather with which Providence has favoured us will produce a plentiful harvest, the effeot of which upon trade we need not describe ; while tha new tariff', by reducing the price of many articles, will allow more money to be spent in the purchase of goods. Power-loom printers may be quoted, 27 inch GC's, 4». 6d. to 4s. 9d. ; and 72'«, 4s. 10jd. to ¿s. 3d.- Manchester Advertiser. ^Bolton.-During the last fortnight there has been a slight improvement iii the demand for goods at B...
