Upon each animal the usual fee of id. has been charged, which produces an accession to the funds of the Corporation of £5. 10s 3d. showing a decrease of about twenty per cent., as compared with the fees     of the previous month, which is no doubt owing to there having been during the past mont...

THE DRUSES AND MARONITES. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 18 November 1845

TUE DRUSES AND MARONITES. O.NK of the most interesting portions of the earth is nt the present time the scene of n religious and civil war, and subjected to all thc horrors of the worst calamity that can afflict any people. Syria and the Holy Land must always he regarded with a lively interest by all Christian nations ; and it is almost impossible the " Toners" of Europe can permit thc cruelties and ravages of war to ruin and depopulate this region without some endeavour to put a stop to it. They interfered in 1812 to settle with thc Torte the form of thc government of Syria ; they are not less called on now to interpose to put a period to that state of anarchy which there is some reason to fear has been partly caused by their own former arrangements. The war is carried on between thc Druses and thc Maronites ; but as these names do not convey any notion of the differences between them or their relative position, a short explanation of thc state of the Syrian population is necessary...

THE OBSERVER. IIOIÎART TOWN, TUESDAY, NOV. 18. ' J.UJtl) STANLEY'S LAST. Tun appalling (lunger which threatens the colony, if Lord Stanley's latest measure should be enrried into effect, calls for a tho- rough examination ol' the liill, so that the colonists may be aroused to use all consti- tutional menus to nvert their impending ruin. If the intended settlements arc scat- tered, the application of civilization cannot reach them ; the establishment of religious ordinances, of popular education, and public institutions must lie long delayed. Wc pre- sume that it is intended to enclose some district remote front the inhabited country, and distribute to these chosen bands of ad- venturers thc small allotments which may be adapted to their physical strength. This land, unfenced, unstocked, mid uncleared, barren of natural fruits, producing no spon- taneous substitute for bread, will require n long intervnl before it repays its culture.

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 18 November 1845

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. lN«in:«T.-On Saturday an inquest was held nt the " Tliatclied House," New Wharf, on view cf tile body of a man named Thomas Drivers, lt appeared on the evidence that the deceased was steward on board thc Scotia, which vessel was ly- ing at the New Wharf. That on Monday week thc Captain (who was below in the cabin) desired the deceased to go and shove oil' a boat which was striking against the stern, and that the deceased went on tieck for that purpose, ami was last seen descending by the piles of the wharf. Ho was not seen to fall into the water, and being nf very in- temperate habits, it was matter of conjecture whe- ther he had not gone away to some "public house," or with some friend. His body was found on Friday last by rome men who were dragging the cove ; and, although much disfigured by thc fish, was easily identified. The jury returned a verdict of' Accidentally Drowned."

RESPONSIBILITY OF INSANE PERSONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 18 November 1845

RESPONSIBILITY OF INSANE PERSONS. ON Saturday a man of the name of Thomas Judd was tried at Quarter Sessions for stealing. After the evidence in support of thc charge was gone through, witnesses were called in defence, the defence being to the effect that the prisoner had been insane. In this state he had been for about nine months under the care of Mr. Crooke, of the Colonial Hospital, and subsequently lo-= cated in thc New Norfolk Asylum, from which he was discharged a few months since on his becoming free. Mr. Crooke gave it as his opinion that the prisoner still laboured under mental disease, and that he was not, therefore, accountable for his acts. This led to enquiries as to the character in which his disease developed itself; when it appeared, that at times he laboured under an uncontrollable propensity to commit theft. Thc Solicitor-General then raised the question whether the theft of which the prisoner stood charged might not have been committed in a "lucid interval," and ...

INDEPENDENCE OF VENEZUELA. Laguayrn, May 29, 1845. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 21 November 1845

I INDEPENDENCE OF VENEZUELA. Lnguayrn, May 29, 1845. A very unexpected and important chance has taken pince in the political relations of Venezuela. Her independence has at last been recognised by Spain, and n treaty of peace nnd amity entered into between tho two nations. The négociations, by which the recog- nition has been brought about, were con- ducted on the part of Venezuela hy their Minister at London, M. Portique, who, it is said, was invited by Spain to a conference at Madrid, where the treaty was concluded on the 30th March last. No news of thc successful termination of these négociations reached this country un- til the 11 th instant, when the utmost sur- prise and curiosity were excited by tho ap- pearance in the harbour of n Spanish vessel of war, no- such vessel having visited thc country since thc cessation of hostilities ¡ and still greater was the surprise when she ran up the Venezuelan flag and fired a salute of twenty-one guns. The bearer of the despatches procee...

" AVe learn that a commercial house ia this city received by this arrival a letter which announces that Santa Anna would leave Vera Cruz for England in the packet of the 1st June. "Mons.

In the latest English newspapers that we have received, there ii no mention mado of his name, although common ru- mour here bas assigned the dignity to moro than one. We cannot but avow that a fear- ful crisis for tho colony is approaching1, the results of which will solely depend on tho ability and character of tho individual ap- pointed to adjust tho present distracted state of affairs. As regards tbo European settlers and matters and policy connected with them, we deem the difficulty to be arduous ; but it is as to the measures towards the natives that we look forward with deep and anxious interest.
