PARLIAMENTARY SUMMARY. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Morning Herald — 6 October 1842

PARLIAMENTARY SUMMARY. In the House of Lords, on Monday, the Punishment of Death (Ireland) Bill was read a third time and passed. On Tuesday, the Duke of Wellington moved an address to her Majesty, expressive of their lordship's abhor- rence of the attempt that had been made upon her Majesty's life, and their gratitude to God for her miraculous escape. On Wednesday their lordships met at two o'clock to proceed to Buckingham Palace to present the address to her Majesty adopted on the preceding day. On Thursday, Lord Kinnaird moved the ap- pointment of a select committee to inquire into the causes of the national distress. The Duke of Wellington opposed the motion, which was eventually withdrawn. The Income Tax Bill was brought up and read a first, time, and the second reading ap- pointed for to-morrow week.

NORFOLK ISLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Morning Herald — 7 October 1842

NORFOLK ISLAND. Vi: regret to say, that the last accounts received" from Norfolk Island shows not only that the system introduced there by Captain Maciiokocmie hnsfuilcd, hut that the whole of the convicts arc in a most disorganized aud undisciplined condition. Two of the convict clerks employed in the Commissariat Department had been de- tected in making false returns, by means al'which they had defrauded Mr. Fostkk, the Superintendent of the Convicts, of up- wards of ¿C10. , The Government sheep are slaughtered almost openly, and the meat cooked in the men's huts. Boats mc built by the couvicts, under circum- stances that must be detected were the slightest diligence used in watching them. Although there are nearly two thousand convicts who ought to be employed as labourers, they do not grow sufficient grain for their own use, and the Commissariat Department will still have to supply the island willi flour from Sydney. Captain jMaciionociui: will be relieved in March next ; but su...

SALES OF COLONIAL WOOL. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Morning Herald — 7 October 1842

SALES,OF COLONIAL WOOL. j The following information respecting the sales of colonial wool, held at Liverpool, in June, is interesting. There was evidently a tendency upwards. Liverpool, 3rd June, 1842. Sia,-There was a tolerably numerous at- tendance of buyers at the Wool Sales which took place hero ycMcrday, considering the small quantity of Australian brought forward, the greater proportion of which consisted of slipe and low wool. A few lots of the liner descriptions (particularly those which con- tained any portion of combing,) sold at ex- treme prices, and the other qualities fully realized former rates, but the result of thii sale can hardly be considered a criterion to judge of future prices. /., The Entre Rios sold with spirit at the full value, but it was not so choice a parcel as im- ported some lime since. There appeared to be every disposition to .purchase East India, and the qualities free from burr'brought equal rates to those ob- tainable by private contract, whilst t...

GRAND BALL FOR THE RELIEF OF THE SPITALFIELDS WEAVERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Morning Herald — 7 October 1842

GRAND BALL FOR THE RELIEF OF THE SPITALFIELD8 WEAVERS. This magnificent fete which took place on Thursday night at her Majesty's Theatre, possessed an interest in addition to the ex- cellent and charitable object it was intended to promote, from its being one of the very few occasions on which it has been the custom not only of her Majesty, but of her immediate predecessors, to associate publicly and personally with her subjects in promoting a common object. The pur- pose of the ball, if we understand it rightly, was not only to give relief to the temporary necessities of the weavers, but to con- tribute towards a fund for the erection of a school in which the children of the weavers are to be instructed in the arts of design. Should this plan be carried into effect, there is no doubt but that it would provide the most efficient remedy for those necessities which nowperiodically appeal to the sympa- thies of the public. In support of this opinion there needs no other evidence than t...

He commenced by expressing his belief that noble lords knew very little of the actual bufferings of the poorer classes of the peo- ple, and he should call the attention of . their lordships to a few facts to show the state of their sufferings. "With regard to the Queen's letter, which had recently s been issued, that was addressed solely to the members of the established church. Although he knew not on what grounds, unless it were to uphold that church to the prejudice of all other denominations of religious bodies.
