THE OBSERVER. HOBART TOWN, TUESDAY, DEC. 2. THE PROSPECTS OF THE COLONY. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 2 December 1845

THE OBSERVER. HOBART TOWN. TUESDAY, DEC. 2. THE PROSPECTS OF THE COLONY. ONE important point is gained ; the know- ledge of the disease is hnlf the cure. Those diversities of opinion which obstruct a unity of action are obliterated by the indu- bitable character of the system. It is long since the last defender of probationism ex- pired under the indignation of an outraged colony, but the final consummation of its train of disorders ts bound up in Lord Sinn ley's Bill. Ile lins confirmed the appre- hensions which his previous mensures ex- cited, and completed the edifice which is to be the mcmorinl of Great Britain's cruelty to her loyal offspring. Our island is blotted from the chart of thc colonial empire. Its ports arc never to be visited by men un- tainted with crime. For the charter of do- mestic liberty which we claim is substituted a bill which for ever excludes thc hope of enfranchisement, and renrs the topstone on the gaol of tintions. "We conclude that an effort will be ma...

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 2 December 1845

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. Robbery.-Mrs. Robe, wife of Mr. Robe, of Liverpool-street, watchmaker, together with Fre- derick Farnell, a free man, and Elizabeth Parnell, his wife, a prisoner of the Crown, who have been for some days in custody on the charge of stealing and receiving property abstracted from the shop of Mrs. Abrahams, of Liverpool-street, were com- mitted for trial on Saturday. It appeared that the prisoner Elizabeth Parnell, had been in Mrs. Abraham's service, and when there several articles were missed from the shop. Strong suspicion was entertoined by Mrs. Abrahams that the goods had been conveyed to Robe's house ; a search warrant was obtained, and eight shirts of a peculiar make were there found, which Mrs. Ahrnhams swore to as her property. During the search, Mrs. Robe attempted to conceal one of the shirts, which fixed a guilty knowledge on her. Mrs. Abrahams swore that the shirts found were imported by herself, and that no other houses in town were supplied with such ...

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 2 December 1845

ENGLISII EXTRACTS. ATTEMPT TO ASSASSINAT»: PRINCE ALHERT'S GAMEKEEPER. - Considerable sensation has been caused within the last few days in thc neighbourhood of Pjngshot Park, in consequence of an attempt being made to take away thc life of Mr. Turner, son of Mr. James Turner, head gamekeeper of his Boyal Highness Prince Albert. It appears from information received by the police, that Mr. Turner who had charge of the young pheasants in Iteplcy Parin, wns fired at about two o'clock on the morning of Tuesday, the 22nd instant, from behind a watch-box, adjoining to which avast quantity of birds arc kept with n gun containing three bullets, one of which struck him on the third finger of the left hand and shnttcrcd it to pieces. No person was seen about the pre- mises during thc night, and the only reason that can be assigned for thc outrage is, that Mr. Turner ou a late occasion took active measures in prosecuting persons for selling pheasants' eggs which had been stolen from Iiis Hoyal...

POPE HILDEBRAND AND HENRY IV. OF GERMANY. [From the Edinburgh Review.] (Continued from our last.) [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 2 December 1845

POl'EHILDKIJltANI) AND HUNKY IV. OF GERMANY. [From thc Edinburgh. Jirrivw.] (Continued from our hist.) WHILE tilt glories of Cnnossn were thus celebrated by rejoicings in the Cliristiun Cnpitnl, these were expiated hy blood in the plains ol' Saxony. Confiding in the solemn acts of the Pope and his Legates, the Saxons h nil thronged to the defence of the crown of lludolf, and they lind sustained it undauntedly. Hut the hrnvest quailed at the intelligence that Gregory had disowned the cause of the Church, and of their native land ; and that, even in the palace of the Lateran, the ambassadors of Henry were received with honours nud with n deference denied to the humbler envoys pf his rival. Sagacity far inferior to that of Hildebrand, could, at that time, have divined that thc sword alone could decide such a quarrel that the sword of Henry was thc keener of the two-ami that, by the cordial adoption of the cause of either, the Pope might draw on himself the vengeance of the con- queror....

MASSACRE AT DAHRA. THE Journal de St. Etienne publishes n letter from a non-commissioned officer of the 3Gth Regiment of thc line, giving an ac- count of the horrible affair of Dahra. Thc writer, relating the proceedings of thc co- lumn under the order of Colonel I'elissier up to its arrival at thc mouth of thc cavern, where the Arabs had taken refuge, says : .* Two hours after our departure from the camp we arrived in front of the grotto or cavern. A company of grenadiers was or- dered to descend by the hollow way which leads to it, hut scarcely had they advanced a few steps when n discharge of musketry obliged them to fall back. The position was inexpungablc, and ns thc place could only be entered man by man, our whole corps would he destroyed in the attempt. Confident in their retrenchments, before which the Turks had ni ways been foiled, the Arabs refiled to surrender. Then the Colonel ordered the men to cut wood nnd make faggots, which with great pains they succeeded in letting...

THE OBSERVER. HOBART TOWN, FRIDAY, DEC. 5. OUR GRIEVANCES. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 5 December 1845

THE OBSERVER. HOBART TOWN. FRIDAY, DEC. 5. OUR GRIEVANCES. TnK charge of unfair opposition to his Ex- cellency's Government is not to be decided hy those who have calumniated all his pre- decessors, and by unspnring falsehoods dis- torted every measure they have proposed, and insulted every ndherent by whom they have been assisted. A sudden change from scurrilous contempt of authority to that fawning adulation which licks the dust, is as uncertain ns it is unprincipled. So long as human nature is susceptible of resentment, so long as the agents of injustice share in thc discredit of the work for which they receive their reward, thc subordinate ruler must participate in the odium of his chief. Ile must not expect that Lord Stanley's victims will cheer him on, that the ruined settlers will rise up from their desolate homes to wave a welcome-that the pau- perised mechanics, thc landlords, with their deserted farms and tenants, will be sedulous in his praise. Ile must not suppose that t...
