TRADE WITH SINGAPORE. [From the Swan River Enquirer.] [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 30 December 1845

TIIAUK WITH SIXCJArOllE. [From the Siran Uiver ICni/uirrr.] Since our last, our colonial trader thc Thetis, has returned from lier voyage to Singapore. We arc inclined to view the result of this trial by thc Thetis of some of our colonial produce in thc Singapore mar- ket, ns hy no means altogether unfavour- able; ni though it has not been quite so suc- cessful ns wc could have wished a first ex- periment to he, knowing how easily enter- prise is checked hy a little disappointment at thc outset. Thc sheep sent averaged I Ss. u'd., nearly, all round, timi as wc find that out of 2S tnken on bonni, -7 were landed nt Singapore, wc think that this portion of the venture may bc pronounced to have answered tolerably well. The very small amount of loss during the voyage shows tittil, with proper niaimgetiiciil, the risk is really insignificant, even on board such small vessel us the Thetis. Neither does it appear that thc Thetis was particu- larly favoured by thc weather, for she expe- rien...

FREE BOTTOMS—FREE GOODS. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 2 January 1846

FREE BOTTOMS-FREE GOODS. Tuts doctrine appears to be gaining ground in diplomatic practice. The United States, of course, maintain it, ns they sought to maintain it during the great war with Na- poleon. It will be timo enough to discuss the equity of the principle when it shall be admitted and applied to warfare by laud as well as by sea. and when force majeure, as the French have it, is not really thc only in- ternational law in all cases of hostile urgency. In the meantime it will be well understood that, wherever the principle of free bottoms making free goods is pressed into diplomatic service, the ruling intention is, however, ci- villy cloaked and astutely mystified, an as- sault upon the maritime ascendancy of this country. It may, or it may not, be worth our while to assert that supremacy, but no less evident is the animus which indirectly seeks to array against it a universal combi- nation of hostile feeling. France makes herself ostensibly, if not ostentatioudy, the Europe...

THE DUKE AND THE PENINSULAR MEDAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 2 January 1846

THE DUKE AND TUB PENINSULAR MEDAL. GENERAL NAPIER, in his History oj the Pe mundar War, remarks, that it seems to he a drawback to the greatness of Lord Welling- ton's character, that while capable of repres- sing insubordination, either by firmness or dexterity, as the casu may require ; capable also of magnanimously disregarding, or dan- gerously resonting injuries, his praises or his censuro aro bestowed indiscriminately, or so directed as to acquire partisans and per- sonal friends rather than the attachment of tho multitude. Hu did not make the hard working military crowd feel that their honest unobtrusive exertions were appreciated. In this he differs nnt from many other great (relierais and statesmen, but he thereby fails to influence masses, and his genius falls short of the sublime flight by which Hanni- bal in ancient, and Napoleon in modern times, commanded the admiration of the world." Of the accuracy of this observation, the reply of the Duko of Wellington to the pe- ti...

THE RELIGIOUS MOVEMENT IN GERMANY. The unfortunate disturbances at Loipsic havo been completely suppressed, and a searching inquiry lins cumincnced into their origin. The Elberfeld Gazette states that the con- version of Roman Catholic priests to the German Catholic church is inciensing tinily. At S.irbruck a converted priest has been in- stalled pastor. From Manheim, we learn that tho German Catholics had invited thc celebrated preacher Loose to preach to them ; the authorities in- terfered, hut as tho law was against them tho congregation nsscnililod to tho number of nearly ¿00. The censor prohibited the local journal tn put in even on advertisement of the arrival of Mr. Liaise. The Frankfurt Journal notices tho arrival of Mr. Loose in that town.

A rumour was first spread that several merchants and shopkeepers had resolved to close their es- tablishments against the valuators employed to assess them under tho new law.

A. man passing down the street called Toledo, being taken for a collector, was ussailed by the mob, and near tho Gate do Toledo and in tho Faubourg- do la 1'alonia tho crowd continued to gather throughout tho day.

On tho following morning several shops were not opened at tho usual hour, and tho mob re-assembled. An order was issued to open thu shops, and the masters who refused were arrested and ...
