THE COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 14 November 1845
TOE COUNCIL. THE selection of Councillors from the ranks of the colonists docs not confer n represen- tative character on our Government, hut it results from thc innate sentiment, which not even despotic power can wholly extin- guish, that, prerogative is liable to abuse, anti that the people themselves cnn alone bc trusted to guard against aggression. If the Council is to yield witbout question to whatever tho Government suggests, the presence of a country party is an anomaly, a mere disguise of naked irresponsible power ; arguments in thc Legislative Chamber be- come useless, it becomes a simple Court of Record, nnd will require nothing but the presence of a Registrar. But if thc inten- tion of Parliament was, to lodge in the linnell of tho Councillors nu effective veto whenever thc existence of an undoubted evil should collect the discordant clements of thc colonial mind in one unanimous im- pulse; if the intention of Parliament was to offer them an alternative between slavish su...

THE OBSERVER. HOBART TOWN, ITU DAY, NOV. ll. TIIK COLONIST EXTIM'ATION 13ILL. THE moro we consider the Bill of Lord Stanley, of which we gave his Lordship's own notice on moving ¡ts second reading in thc House of Lords on the 18th July, the more do we deem it our duty to invoke the exertions nod thc prayers of every respec- table colonist to avert, if possible, the fur- ther scourge by which the unhappy settlers of this devoted land arc threatened. Every man who can appreciate the necessary con- sequences of Lord Stanley's proposal to dis- perse over the island a petty felon tenantry, (and who is there that cannot appreciate them ?) should without loss of time-the dancer is imminent-unite in exposing them and remonstrating with thc Govern- ment both here and in England. The in- telligence of the contemplated measure has come accompanied by an intimation that something, more or less approximating to justice, is to be done to the colony in thc matter of its convict expenditure; it wou...

ALGIERS. I ATROCIOUS DEED. Wo extract from the Ahhhar of Algiers, a print published under the patronage'of Mar- shal tho Duke D'Isly, Governor-General of Algeria, the following narrativo of ono of tho most atrocious deeds that have dis-1 graced the French arms in Africa ; it is dated from Orlcansville : " One of those occurrences has just taken place in the Dahra which deeply afflict such as witness them, even when they have ac- knowledged the horrible necessity of it, and have a right to declare that nothing bas been neglected to prevent the catastrophe. Colonel Pclissicr was engaged in pursuing the Oulod Riahs, a Kabyl tribe who have never been subdued, because the country they inhabit contains immense caverns-real labyrinths wherein it would be downright madness to lead assailing troops. The Ouled-Riahs, .acing that they were closley pursued, has- tened to their habitual refuges. This hap- pened on the forenoon of the 18th of June. " After surrounding the grottos some fas- cines ...

DREADFUL OCCUIUIKNCE.-On Friday evening, n number of the aborigines were drinking nt n certain public house in Mel- bourne, and, at a late hour, under tho in- fluence of their potations, they proceeded across the punt to their "mia mia's."
