THE speech of Loni Stanley, published in nnother column, according to thc versions of thc Times and Morniny Post, is thc most alarming exhibition of thc intentions of thc Home Government towards this colony which wc have yet seen. Talk of thc Po- lice nnd Gaol Expenditure ; at thc worst it is a heavy nnd unjust lax ; hut there is some- thing worse than heavy taxes, and that is insecurity to life, to property, to social, and to private virtue. This colony, it will bc seen, is regarded as nothing more than a great prison, mid it is intended so to treat 1 it. Its free population are intruders, and a ! limit is to he put to the extension of their influence and wraith. The sale of lands is I to be suspendrd ; and instead they arc to be ! leased to prisoners of the crown, in small ' portions and nt easy rentals, and on like conditions to bc made ultimately purclinsc nhlc bj' them.

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 11 November 1845

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. THE COLONIAL HANK.-At u meeting of tlic Shareholders of this Hank yesterday it was agreed to continue it under its present ninnngement for a year longer. Itonnr.nr.-On Friday evening between the hours of seven and eight two armed rullinns en- tered thc house of Mr. Moses, nt tho comer of Ilathurst-strcct, one of whom coolly walked up- stairs, opened two drawers, and possessed himself of property of considerable value. The men must have watched Mr. Moses from his house and seized thc opportunity his absence afforded to rob thc house. They were, however, seen by a girl belonging to thc house, who gave thc alarm, and one of the men was secured, thc other mak- ing his escape. Just before thc prisoner was captured he flung from him a pistol which was loaded to thc muzzle. Thc police have a clue to the second man, who will hardly bc able to es- cape. They arc returned convicts from l'ort Ar- thur, lately nrrived from that settlement. ANOTtir.it.-On thc same night one o...

THE COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 11 November 1845

THE COUNCIL. SIR EAIHII.KY WILMOT calculated on one week as time sufficient for him to obtain backs to fill thc places in Council which had been vacated by those who could neither be parties to his extravagant policy, or tole- rate his personal offensiveness any longer, and yesterday was the appointed day of meeting again. But that day has passed without a Council having been formed of any materials, and a further adjournment has been made to December. A little longer the colony, from Dau to Beersheba, is to be scoured for recruits ; a little longer is paltry vanity to bo tempted ; compassion, the last resource, is to bc again appealed to; a little longer the Governor and the Secre- tary are lo play the part of thc sisters in Bluebeard, thc one calling to the other, " Do you see anybody commT ?" The pa- rallel, however, we expect, will end, where sister Ann says, " No ;" for every day renders a scat in Council more and more contemptible, since it adds to the number of those who have...

POLICE AND GAOLS. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 11 November 1845

POLICE AND GAOLS. THE town since Saturday has been placarded with hills intimating that the Home Govcrn ment has relieved the colony of the police, gaol, and judicial expenditure. Notwith- standing flic circumstance of this bill hav- ing been issued from the office of the fiOvernmcnt organ, we arc not quite satis- fied as to thc veraciousness of the represen- tation. We wait for better authority to show us of how much of thc police, gaol, and judicial expenditure Lord Stanley has re- lieved us ; or rather to leam the amount of provision he has made from thc British Treasury for these purposes-purposes the cost of which must bc indefinitely increased (if proper protection wc are indeed to have) ! under those new features of convict manage- ment adverted to in our leading article. All rejoicing at present is premature-and it is proper to attach suspicion to thc attempt to produce il, especially considering the source from which the placard comes-under pre- sent circumstances.

IRELAND. (From the Spectator, July 5.) [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 11 November 1845

IRELAND. (From the Spectator, July 5.) A dreadful affray, terminating with the loss of at least six lives, has occurred at thc village of Ballinhussig, in thc neighbourhood of Cork. The only particulars ns yet pub- lished are supplied by the Cork Southern Reporter, and thc account must therefore be considered as ex parte with respect to the origin of the conflict. There is an annual fair held at the village on thc 30th June, which is usually well attended by farmers and others ; and a small Police force is always employed to keep order. On Monday last, thc fair pusscd off quietly ; but in thc evening two men began to quarrel, and others joined in thc wrangle. The Police, wdio were nineteen in number, and com- manded hy Sub-Inspector Kelly, of Kinsale, interfered, and arrested one Sullivan. Thc mob called out for a rescue ; and in conse- quence, thc Police retired with their prisoner into n low slated house, used as a dispensary, on the outskirts of the village ; having first, howeve...

TURKF.Y.-Letters from Constantinople, of the 1 / til June, nre filled with accounts of the fetes and rejoicings to celebrate the marriage of thc Sultan's sister, thc Sultana Adilcli, with Mehcmct Ali, Pasha of To phnna. They lasted for three weeks, and were on n scale ol'oriental magnificence; fi- nishing with a novelty in Constantinople, the representation of au Italian opera, at the Palace of Destardar Ilournoo. *' The theatre was constructed in the inter- nal garden of the harem ; and thc bnck of it touched the windows of the women, which thus opened on the stage. Near the wall, and on a high platform sat thc Sultan, wear- ing a great coat, having an opera-glass in his hand, and watching with on evident in- terest whnt was passing on thc stage. Below him, mid on thc sides, but out of the Sul- tan's sight, were II iza Pasha, Mehcmct Ali Pasha, anil Rescind Pasha ¡ there were also seals for the olHeers of thc palace ; and the eunuchs and other servants were stationed in th...

A KOMANCK THAT MAY HKCOllK A H KA LIT Y. The l'oiee of Jacob, a respectable period- ical .supported by tim leading English Jews, advocates " the establishment ol' agricul- tural Jewish settlements in Palestine." There cnn he no doubt, that this people have of late years evinced a decided taste tor taking j-«»-t in t'olnui/.iius adventures, and have, many of them been very success- ful in colonial business. Thc London pe- riodical we have named is not the oidy organ ol'the Jews that wishes to direct this enterprising spirit towards Palestine. Mr. Noah, an American Judge ol' the Jewish persuasion, delivered a lecture at New York, in (Jctnber IS ll, on the colonization of Palestine by the .rews. A letter from the Continent, quoted last year in The I'oiee of Jacob, says-"Wu would willingly emi- grate; we would go to America, to Texas, but most willingly to Palestine, under English protection."

SIR WILLIAM FOLLETT. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 11 November 1845

Silt WILLIAM FOLLETT. Tho long-expected death of Sir William Follett, thc Attorney-General, took place at threo o'clock on Saturday afternoon. The journals of all shades have vied with each other in tributary notices of the deceased. William Webb Follett was thc son of Mr. Benjamin Follett, timber-merchant at Top sham, in Devonshire, who had once been in the army, anil had married the only daugh- ter of Mr. J. Webb of Kinsale. Both towns claim to be the birth-place of tho late Attor- ney-General ; but ho was most probably born at Topsham, in December, I~9S. In his youth he was suspected of tininess; and ho very early showed a predisposition to that disease of the spine which terminated fatally. In his sixteenth year ho went to Trinity College, Cambridge ; passed his college life without distinction ; in 1841 became a mem- ber of the Inner Temple; in 1821 began practice as a special pleader: and in 1S25 joined the Western Circuit. From this point his rise was rapid. In IS33 he accept...
