MAURITIUS. OCCUPATION OF THE ISLAND OF ST. PAUL BY THE FRENCE. (From the Englishman, Jan 1.) [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 13 May 1845

MAURITIUS. OCCUPATION OF THE ISLAND OF ST. PAXJL BY THE F RE NC ST. fFrom ike Englishmant Jan I.J WE find in the Mauricien, an acco ;nt of the receut occupation of the island of St. Paul by the French. The situation of that volcanic island is well known to most Indian readers, many of whom have passed very near it in their outward passage. We were puzzled to guess the object which had led our ambitious neighbours to occupy so unin- viting a s«>ot, possessed of no harbour, scarcely indeed affording shelter or anchorage, and too barren for cultivation. The French have noto- riously a rage (or colonization ; but there are so many unoccupied spots more desirable, which they might colonize if they pleased, that it appeared an unaccountable whim to convert such au island into a dependency of the Grande Nation. It appears, however, by the report before us, t'jat it is a private speculation, not a national enterprise. Certain Frenchmen have discovered that the islands of St. Paul and Ams...

LATEST EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 13 May 1845

LATEST EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE. 'SIB CHAULES METCALFE.-We hare briefly stated else- where, that private Utters from Canada give melancholy accounts of Sir Charles Metcalfe's health. Since that -paragraph went to press, a contemporary has published the following sad intelligence :-Sir C. Metcalfe is dying. It is useless to conceal this deplorable intelligence, much as it will grieve all whom it reaches. It is well known that Sir 'Charles ? offered for many years from some cancer-like tumor in his face, and that one object of his return from Jamaica was to undergo an operation. A second operation, we believe, was performed in Ca- nada, but the insidious advance of the malady has not ween checked. It has recently destroyed the sight of one eye. Nevertheless, so complete is the sufferer mas- ter aver himself- such his greatness of mind and tho- rough devotion to public duties-that the fact of his danger is not known in Canada. We wish our informa- tion were of a kind to be doubted ; but w...

These lands will probably be offered by auction shortly after the sale already notified to take place on 19th July.

THE ABOLITION OF CAPITAL PUNISHMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 13 May 1845

THE ABOLITION OF CAPITAL PUNISHMENTS, j SOME of our readers m.iy recollect that, sir or seven weeks I ago, we made some remarks upon capital punishments. These remarks were impertinently impugned by"a few"who addressed his Excellency iu behalf of the black murderer, and the horrible ruffian calling himself Douglas. These few have, at moit tedious intervals, ccatinued to attack us in reference to their hobby, although any one who pos- sessed discretion could see that they bad entirely failed in their arguments. We always feel reluctance to engage with such disputants,because they neverknow when they are beat ; but, since we have entered upon the controversy, we shall now conclude by showing that " the few" are effec- tually hors de combat. Our assertions were that (1) "in every country in the world, we believe, and from ihe remotest times, it has been considered necessary to punish these two great crimea (murder and repe) with death and (2) " the first written record and sanction to ...

Poetry. THE OLD MAID'S PETITION. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 13 May 1845

THE OLD MAID'S PETITION. Pity the sorrows of a poor old maid, ~ Whose years, alas ! have numbered forty-four ! But owns to twenty-five ; and feels afraid That all her chance is gone-for ever Moore. This youthful garb my eagerness bespeaks ; This morning cap proclaims my lengthened years ; And many a wrinkle in my grief-worn cheek Hath ott been wet by disappointment's tears. Yen ball, for which a sovereign I paid. So tempting, baulked my wishes at the last. Though Wei p pe rt there the music had purveyed, And Gunter a magnificent repast. Hard is the fate of maids no longer young ! Deaf to my hints were all the dancing men ; And envying in my heart the blooming throng, I waltzed with partners of threescore and ten. Oh 1 let me but avoid the wretched doom. Which menaces old maids, as gossips tell. When they have* passed the precincts of the tomb, To lead the apes they loved on earth, in hell ! Should I reveal the sources of my grief. If soft humanity e'er touched their breast, Sure bac...

SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 13 May 1845

SYDNEY. 1 THR BELLINGER.-Aa the river Bellinger forms at present the chief source from whence Sydney receives its supplies of cedar, some in form at io» relative to the tiver, th* adjacent country, and its natural productions, may not be uninteresting ¡ j to a portion of your readers. The river co:i-j j sists of two main branches, termed the north I aud south arms. The south arm is navigable for boats twelve miles, pursues a westerly di- rection, and, after running thirty miles, dwindles into an inconsiderable stream. The north arm takes its rise in the verdant plains of New England. From thence its course is in a south- westerly direction, until it approaches within twenty miles of the sea coast, where, passing the lastbartier range of mountains, it pursues a uorth-westerly direction to the sea coast. The two arms then unite within four miles of the mouth, and, by their junction, form a basin of seven miles in estent. In this basin are placed a good many sand banks (dry al neap tid...
