ENGLISH. PARLIAMENTARY PROCEEDINGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 11 November 1845
ENGLISH. I PAW.I AMENTA HY PROCEEDINGS. As the session draws tn a close, tho pro- ceedings in Parliament become more miscel- laneous and hurried. The memu.'r for Ireland and his deputy have kept up Ihnir opposition to thc Irish Colleges' 13til ; without, however, any de- parture from Mr. O'Connell's subdued and respectful manner in addressing the House of Commons face to face. The objector even went so far as to admit that they ought not to submit their discretion to any persons without, however venerated-menning the Unman Catholic Bishops ; but only cited thu continued hostility ol' those prelates ns a sign tba' the Bill would not succeed. Theso topographical diversities in Mr. O'Connell's moral sense are remarkable; in Dublin the Bishops aro his pole-star in politics; in London, they are hut a " sign of the times." What a pity Sir Hubert cannot entice him to remain always in London. Tin: Maynooth Bill is safe from the reach of harm, having received the Royal assent. The Scotch l'o...

WASTE LANDS (AL'STIIALIA) HILL. Lord Stanley, in moving the second rending Of this hill, s i iii he would endeavour briefly to ex- plain its object and the motives of thc government in introducing thc mensure. As the Inw stood at present there was no mode of disposing of thc waste landa in Australia except by public sale to thc highest bidder. Thc act proposed to provide that whereas doubts arc entertained whether under the law there is now any power on thc part of thc government lo grant leases, it shall for thc future be competent for the governor, if he shall think fit, to grant leases, for periods not exceed- ing 21 yenrs, of districts of country beyond thc limits of thc settlement, and in certain cases, pro- vided they are disposed...
CHURCH INNOVATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 11 November 1845
CHURCH INNOVATION. A very extraordinary scene occurred on Sunday last, at thc parish Church of St. George, Middlesex. Our renders will perhaps remember that towards j the close of the month of May, owing to certain | innovations introduced into the Church service by i thc Rev. liryan King, rector of thc parish, which . gave occasion of scandal and offence to the greater ä part of his parishioners, a rate for thc repair of tho Church was refused-not by thc Dissenters nnd legitimate opponents of such a levy, hut by a majority of the stanchest Churchmen in the parish. The Churchwardens, not being provided with fund«, gave a month's notice to the pew-opcr.crs, "bell-ringer, clock-winder, organist, &c. ; and the i consequence was, that on Sunday last .such cf the ( parishioners us ititi resort to the parish Church were surprised to find that the clock was standing I still, that the noble organ was silent, and that , nil the machinery of due nnd decent service was unprovided.

A REVIEW OF THE PAST, PRESENT, AND FUTURE STATE OF THE WOOL MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 11 November 1845
A ltEVIEW OF THE PAST, PRESENT, AND FUTURE STATE OF THE WOOL MARKET. Tins is a period of the year when many circumstances conspire to give special inte- rest to all that wc know or can discover in relation to tho présent otate of tho wool market and ¡ts prospects ; for, not only is this tho period when tho largest purchases are made from the homo growers, but it is also about the time when tho largest arrivals and sales tako placo from our colonial pos- sessions. It is, moreover, a period when tho matured opinions of dealers, acted upon by the condition of individual private stocks throughout tho country, and their respect of individual demand, are brought to bear upon the market, and determine, for some time afterwards, the general value of wool. To enable us to form an accurate estimate of Borne of tho more important features which present themselves to our considera- tion at this moment, it is needful that wc should shortly refer to the stalo of tho mar- ket this timo last year. ...

INSOLVENT COURT. IN re BAYNTON.

The Solicitor-General attended for the as- signee, Mr. Rowlands for the insolvent, and Mr. Stanley for several of the creditors, who disapprove of the course which Captain Macdonald has pursued.

NEW ZEALAND. IN cw ¿eatnnü lins agni» been on the car- pet : not brought to notice merely hy tho i'aint rumours which have arrived, of a bloody encounter between n bnnd of Queen's sailors and the savages nt Kororarikn, but thc old mutters-revived in the Lords by n petition from the Church Missionary So- ciety, praying for strict observance of the Waitangi " treaty"-in thc Commons, by some questions about the fight, mid Captain Grey's instructions, not productive of much | information. Lord Stanley, who looked so black "under thc gallery" when Sir James Graham and Sir ltobcrt Peel were promising and vowing for him, took occasion to unsay all that they lind snid to whitewash him or raise hopes for a better administration of New Zealand. Ile avowed such an obsti- nate adherence to his absurdest view of the notorious " trcnty," ns to render coloniza- tion of New Zealand impossible, so long ns he remains in office-for his crotchet must lock up nearly all the land.

ENGLISH. THE BRITISH REVENUE. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 14 November 1845
ENGLISH. THE BRITISH REVENUE. Un the liicc ol' it, the Revenue account just published looks uglier thnn it has done for some time past ; but it is not really so bad as it seems. The table for thc year, indeed, has an aspect fair enough : there is an increase on all thc ¡toms but one-on thc Customs, .-£.'¡0,880 ¡ Excise, :£109,397 ; and the decrense is the insignificant one of .-¿'20,000 in Crown-lands. It is in the quarterly table that thc blemish is ; for though wc have even herc an increase in Stumps of £132,0-13, besides an increase also in Taxes and Property-tax, there is a sweep- ing decrease of di'A60,687 in Customs, nnd of .-£149,908 in Excise, 'flint, is not only a great arithmetical sct-ofi" against thc Stumps increase, but-whereas that very augmentation means mischief, for it proba- bly indicates thc unhealthy extent of roil way speculation-the Customs and Excise arc usually taken ns thc critical items in judging ol' national prosperity, nnd their decay should mean ndversi...

Several versions are given of the origin of the affray, hut it is very tlillicult to ascertain the ex.ict particulars. It appears, however, that the numher of lives lost now amounts lo ten, two more of thc country people having died of their wounds since the previous accounts. Thc subjoined account, from tho Cork Constitu- tion, is very different from that given by the Itepeal papers : "The party nt tim fair consisted of three consta- bles, two acting constables, and thirteen sub constables, who had been inarched in from different stations, and who were under thc command of Mr. J.
