EFFECTS OF THE LATE VERDICT. (BY OUR SOIENTIFIC CONTRIBUTOR.) (A Paper to be read before the PhilosophicaL Society, at the next Mcctini) [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 23 August 1861

EFFECTS OF THE LATE VERDICT. (BY oun soiDNTiric coNTiunuTon.) P (A Paper to be read before the Philosophical fl Society, at the next Mcctini) ) j v TnE effects of the recent floods and the late comet have been duly chronicled hy the journalists and savons of the day ; but the former have scarcely been more disastrous, and the latter not more wonderful, than the effect which a recent verdict, delivered in the Supreme Court, has had upon certain mem- bers of society. The various phases of the disease called " nomineeism," from the first symptoms of dull torpidity down to the more active manifestations of hopeless and mischievous idiotcy and unaccountable hal- lucination, have long puzzled those enquir- ing minds who have devoted their attention to this branch of mental disorder. Hitherto the cause of the disease has not entirely baffled the investigations of the scientific ; but in this field of enquiry mnoh yet remains to be accomplished. Strange influences, still undiscovered, are a...

CULTIVATION OF COTTON IN THE COLONIES. HOUSE OF LORDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 23 August 1861

CULTIVATION OF COTTON IN THE COLONIES HOUSE OF LOUDS. LORD BROUGHAM [Alay 28], seeing the noble duke the Colonial Minister in his place,'said he wished to call his attention to a matter which, in his opinion, was at the present moment one of tho greatest possible im- portance ; he referred to the growth of cotton in our various colonial possessions. He would abstain from referring* to one part of the subject, because it would lead him, how- ever unwilling, to make some observations on that very painful state of things existing in the United States of America. He con- sidered that it had become absolutely essen- tial, independently of those events in America, that her Majesty's government should promote by every means in their power the growth of this great staple, and ho would fain urge upon his noble friend to lose no time in recommending the different colonial governments to encou- rage by all means in their power the growth of this article. He had received from Ja- maica samples ...

THE CIVIL WAR IN AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 23 August 1861

- = I THE CIVIL WAR IN AMERICA. I OUR news from America during the past month has been full of accountb of prepara- tions for war on both sides ; but it is only within the last few days that wo have received intelligence of something like a serious collision. The Federal troops ad- vanced some time ago into Virginia, and they collected in such considerable force in tho neighborhood of Harper's Ferry that we now hear of the evacuation of this important place by the Confederates. The Confede- rates are reported to have fled in great haste after having burnt all the government pro- perty. The whole line of the Potomac ia now in the possession of tho Federal general, and his oppononts arc concentrating their forces at Mannssas Junction. The despatch which informs us of the above facts is dated New York, June 15. It contains several other particulars of interest. The Governor of Missouri has issued a pro . clamation calling for 50,000 state troops to resist the Federal usurpation ; aud t...

The Courier. FRIDAY, AUGUST 23, 1861. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 23 August 1861

FRIDAY, AUGUST 23, 1801. A DEGREE of painful interest will be felt by all persons sincerely desirous of | seeing tha 'colony furnished with asystem of superior education for the young upon a sound basis, in the proceedings of the meeting at Ipswich on Tuesday evening. It would appear to have been-tempora- rily, at least-a failure, though it is not easy to see what could have prevented its j being a success. It seems that the first and second resolutions, whicli Were, albeit, of a formal character, of the greatest possible importance-the first enunciating, as it were, t'he principle upon which all action with regard to a grammar school in that town must be based, and the second pledging the meeting to "take steps," or, as one of the speakers translated the phrase, "to get money"-approved by all the speakers, and carried with perfect unanimity. So far, this looked like work. But when the third resolution, which was a necessary one doubtless, but of very small comparative importance, c...

PRIMITIVE METHODIST CONNEXION. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 23 August 1861

PRIMITIVE METHODIST CON- I NEXION. : THE forty-second annual conference com- menced its sittings in Traffic-street Chapel, Derby, on Wednesday, June 5th, 1861, and continued them till Friday 14th. 'Hie Delegates-ministerial and Jay -about eighty in number, represented the various districts at home, and in the Aus- tralasian colonies, and also the conference in Canada West. On examining the reports of tho stations, ' and of the various con ncxional committeos, theconference wasgrnti fied to find that, on the whole, the societies and institutions were in a healthy and satis- factory condition. When there was occasion for it, a very rigid scrutiny of the causes of a numerical declonsion waB instituted. Many matters of discussion naturally arose in the course of the sittings, but the deliberations were characterised by great frankness, intel- ligence, and unanimity. Some improvement in the resources of the General Missionary j Society is anticipated from a moasure passed to promote it. ...
