THE OBSERVER. HOBART TOWN, TUESDAY, DEC. 9. THE COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 9 December 1845

THE OBSERVER. HOBART TOWN, TUESDAY, DEC. 9. THE COUNCIL. IN petitioning for representative Govern- ment, it will be most necessary and impor- I tant to protest anew against the continuance of the present convict system, for we fear that our claim for free institutions may be disputed while thc community is inun- dated with prisoners. The exercise of legis- lative functions requires that society exist in its natural state. Thc regulations of a gaol can never coalesce with thc system of British representation. Thc Government of pri- soners requires that every department should be moulded to the penal theory, and that the tone and movement of the community should harmonize with thc spirit of a de- partment. A demoralized community is a bad foundation on which to erect the fabric of liberty ; and the destruction of thc system must bc our constant aim and pur- pose. In thc meantime our attention must be directed to the operation of the constitu- tion we possess. Were anything wanting to ...

DOINGS AT TAHITI. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 9 December 1845

DOINGS AT TAHITI. By thc Australian of the 11th instnnt, we learn that the unfortunate Fomnrc is under blockade. Thc arrival of Hear Ad- miral Sir George Seymour has done little to reassure Pomare's party, or check the arbitrary conduct of thc French, who con- tinue to be reinforced by the troops from, Europe. The people nre only waiting the orders of thc Queen what to do ; more submissive people could not be ; there arc thirty or forty to he excepted, who are receiving pay from the French, but they would turn to the Queen's party, if the French Procla- mations accorded with the Protectorate Treaty, in October, 1842, a copy of which was published in the Australian in Decem- ber lt>42. Pomare will give no order fur- ther than to bear with patience all that the French might do to them, and to offer no opposition ; that has been strictly observed by the patriots, excepting in the late massa- cres, when they were compelled to piotect themselves. Queen Pomnrc's letter to the Queen of ...

DREADFUL DISASTER NEAE ! ROUEN.

A rather violent storm had broken over Rouen i about Doon, tbs raia had fallen in abundance, j and nome claps of thunder were heard, but there was nothing- to presage the horrible disaster which bas desolated ono of the richest and most industrious portions of tho arrondissement. At thirty-five minutes after twelve, a furious whirlwind arose in the valley beyond Daville, commencing at the Houlmo, It first carried away a part of the roof of tho factory of M.

ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 9 December 1845

EXGLISH INTELLIGENCE. THE Auriga arrived on Saturday, having left the Downs on the 14th August, and al-   though we have had later papers before, yet those now come to hand contain the impor- tant intelligence that Mexico has declared war against the United States in conse- quence of the annexation of Texas. We publish the proclamation in another column. The Mourillon of Toulon, a dépôt for naval and military stores, has been destroyed by fire. It appears that the flames burst forth suddenly and simultaneously at differ- ent parts at half-past eleven o'clock in the morning, and destroyed the principal sheds under which the timber for the dockyards had been piled. The conflagration did not abate till about seven o'clock in the even- ing. The provincial journnls estimate the loss at an enormous sum, but the Govern- ment state it to be 2,500,000fr. This dépôt at Mourillon must not be confounded with the grand Arsenal of Toulon—a distinct set of works. The authors of this o...

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. CAUTION TO PUHUCANS.-In a cause which came before thc Commissioner of the Court of Re- quests on Thursday lust, wherein thc plaintiff was a publican who sued for spirits and cash supplied in his house, the greater amount being for spirits, Mr. Hone gave a verdict for thc defendant. He said he did so because n license was granted to publicans to furnish moderate refreshment, and not to encourage persons to squnndcr their means \ in drunkenness and rioting. In the present case he thought the quantity of spirits supplied was un- necessary, nnd injurious to the defendant He (Mr. Hone) wished it to he distinctly understood that he would set his face against thc prncticc of publicans giving credit to tipplers, and if they did so they need not come to bis Court to recover.

THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH IN GERMANY. [From the Spectator.] [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 12 December 1845

TUB ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH IN GERMANY. [From the Spectator."] Too little is known in tins country of Rouge, Czersky, and their followers, to supply ma lennis for un osninale of tho character mid importunée of the new schism in the Roman Catholic Church of Germany, flut tho sect is probably strong and increasing, since the mob have betaken themselves to break windows and pelt princes in its behalf; that being the test by which Governments in all ages have agreed to measure the reality and intensity of religious or political enthusiasm. To those who havs paid attention to the progress of opinion among the Roman Ca- tholics of Germany for the last half century, the defection of Rouge, and the apparently rapid progress of his doctrines are not sur- prising. Mis secession is no unprepared or isolated event; it is rather tho natural conse- quence of a number of preparatory incidents. About I 70S, the Priest Becker of Paderborn (Westphalia) was imprisnned by order of his ecclesiastical supe...

MECHANICS' INSTITUTE. ON Friday evening Inst, Dr. Bedford re- newed thc subject of bis two former lectures, " Thc Anatomy and Physiology of Animnls." Ile had been cnlled rather sud- denly to take the place of the President, who had been obliged to leave town ; but he would endenvour ns much ns possible to make his subject plain by divesting it of technicalities. He lind already exhibited some of the most interesting facts connected with the mechanism of various parts of different animals-and he had been able to show particularly in the structure of the teeth how ndmirably adapted were the varieties of that structure to the habits of the animals to which they belong, especially considered as carnivorous or herbivorous. This adaptation is ns distinctly seen in other parts of the animal. The formation of the foot, of the eye, of the stomach were referred to in illustration. Hut the lending topic of thc Doctor's lecture, and one of which he appeared to bc perfect master, was the compara...

CORRESPONDENCE. The Editor of this Journal does not hold himself re- sponsible for the opinions of his Correspondents. A NORTH COUNTRY CHURCHYARD TURNED INTO A SHEEPYARD.

Sin,-Amongst thc numerous glaring abuses and innovations that, for sonic time post, have characterised the management of the ofFuirs of a certain Church on thc northern side of this island, which have from time to time been noticed in different colonial newspapers, arc many of a less conspicuous kind, but equally worthy of notice and publicity, as they alt tend to show thc spirit of thc prevailing party there. One of those abuses, which has been very pointedly brought under my notice, I will proceed to explain, if you will allow mc a small space in your valuable columns. A few days ago, when passing this Church and churchyard, which shall bc nameless, I met a small farmer * and his wife, who live about ten miles distant.
