ANOTHER DREADFUL FIRE AT QUEBEC. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 5 December 1845

ANOTHER DREADFUL FIRE AT QUEBEC. We regret to learn by novices from Quebec that another disastrous fire had destroyed another third of that ill fated city. : On Saturday evening-, the 28th of June, just one month after tho great fire of the 28lh of May, which destroyed part of St. Vulier's and St. John's Suburbs, nearly all i St. Mocho and tho west part of the lower town to below Hope-pate, a fire commenced in St. John's Suburbs, near the place outside the Glacis, where, it clopped on tho 2Sth May. On this occasion tho wind was as strong from the north-east as it was to the west on tho 20th of May, and the weather very dry. At both times tho fire began to tho windward of the densest part of the Suburb, and waa carried throughout the thickest part of the dwellings to the leeward. The lire has destroyed nearly tho whole of St. John's and part of St. Lewis Suburbs, from St. John's-gato and the north-west angle of the walls, along- tho brow of thc Cotear St. Genevieve nearly to the Towe...

T U lt K E Y. (From our Correspondent.) Constantinople, July 2. I ON Saturday last, a grand dinner was (riven by the Sultan, in honour of the Grand Duke Constantine, at which tho Vizier nnd the rest of thc Turkish Ministors, and also tho Am- bassadors and Ministers of foreign powers wcro present. Tho Sultan, according- to custom, made his appearance before dinner; ho is said to have been in good health and spirits, anti welcomed his guests with great affability. Mo did not, however, sit down to dinner with them. Eastern mo- narchs have been accustomed from time ¡in- memorial to cat alone, nod this habit, appa- rently, is one of the last they will abandon. Tho first toast, which was proposed by M. Titoff, tho Hnssian Minister, was " The Sultan." Tho Grand Vizier then gave " The Emperor of llussia," and afterwards '* The Grand Duke." Towards tho close of the banquet, Sir Stratford Canning unex- pectedly rose, and again gave tho health of the Sultun. " His object," bo said, " in pro- p...

SIR EA lt DL EY WILMOT. [from tUcSyilnry Morniiuj Hrralil.J THU cnlnmitics that have lullen niul are still falling upon the sister-colony of Ynn Diemen's Land, arc positively overwhelm- ing. To the oppressive conduct of the Home Government, there is now added in- sulting tyranny on the part of the Local Government. Lord Stanley having chas- tised thc colonists with whips, Sir Eardley Wilmot comes to chastise them with scor- pions. They had already been bruised and crushed beneath thc iniquitous policy which had doomed their beautiful island to be thc prison-house of British felons-and, as if this were not cruelly enough, had cast moreover upon thc revenue derived from local taxation a large portion of thc expense of keeping these felons in subjec- tion. And, still further to aggravate their case, in proportion ns British exaction came upon (hem with growiug* rapacity, their powers of endurance, their means of compliance, sank lower and lower.
