Experimental Researches, Chemical and Agricultural, showing Carbon to be a compound body, made by Plant*, and decomposed by Putrefaction. BY ROBERT RIGG, F.R.S. Smith, Elder, and Co. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 1 May 1844

Experimental Rereirches, Chemical and Agricultural, showing Carbon to be a compound body, mtide by Vlnnttf and decomposed by Putrefaction, hx Robeht Rigo, F.U.S. Smith, Elder, aud Co. Scarcely a month passes without affording a proof of how restlessly the actual state of science wears the garb of perfection with which our vanity is for ever investing it. Bit by bit, the most generally received opinions crumble uw ay before the daily increasing powers of modem expe riment, and thus, iu course of years, entire systems are battered don't) to nmkt way for new theories, often wholly incongruous with, and opposite to, their predecessors. Though this be true of philosophy in general, it seems scarce anywhere so apparent »«* in dieutica! science. In our own days Sit Humphrey Davy, witu his mighty voltuic battery, has gooe far to upset in«ch of the fnundationprin cipltoS of the older chemistry, by demonstrating the com pound nature of muny ofits vaunted ultimate elements ; and subsequent exp...

(From the " Times.") [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 1 May 1844

(From the ' Times.') It has often been remarked as the greatest error in the foreign policy of Louis Philippe, in the whole course of his reign, that he allowed his government to be estranged from that of England on the two most important questions of the last ten years, and that in the crisis which followed both in Spain and in the East, he found himself without any other support in Europe, and without sufficient cause or resolution to sacrifice the peace of the world to the supposed interests of France. The only imaginable source of those coalitions, which are the bugbears in ordinary of the French opposition press, lies in the possibility of the French nation or the French Soveicign running counter to the general inte rests and the public law of Europe. But a Prince endowed with the sagacity of the King of the French is perfectly well aware that such attempts cannot be made with impunity by any member of the family of nations. The Court of France was assuredly never so infatuated...

THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, MAY 1, 1844. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 1 May 1844

WEDNESDAY, MAY 1, 1844. As a preliminary, we trust, to other and more important improvements, the Legislative Council has set itself to work to mend our ways ; the parti* cuiar measure which now calls for our gratitude being the introduction of the bill to provide for the alignment of streets, an abstract of which will be found in another part o( this journal. To this bill we believe that some objection has been made by individual inhabitants of Perth, whose pro perty is likely to be interfered with by it ; and indeed we hear o( one gentleman who intends lo apply to be heard by counsel, at the bar, against its provisions. The ground of complaint appears to be that many persons, trusting to authorised and recognised lines of communication, have set up fences, and other erections, beyond the limits properly assignable to them ; and they argue that as this wus done on the faith of previous govern ment surveys, which they hud no means of knowing were incorrect, they ought not now to be ...

EXTRACTS FROM THE LATEST ENGLISH PAPERS. TURKEY. Constantirle. Dec. 7. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 1 May 1844

EXTRACTS STROM THE LATEST ENGLISH PAPERS. TURKEY. (From the ' Morning Herald.') Constantinople, Dec. 7. On the 1st instant, his Excellency Sir Strat ford Canning had a long interview with Rifaat Pacha, the Minister for Foreign Affairs, and it is said that their conference on the subject of Greece was warm and interesting. The public believe that in consequence of the energetic re presentations of the ambassador, the Porte has abandoned its intention of sending to Salonica certain heavy ships of war; but I have been assured in a good quarter that it never had such intention, and has by no means given up its design of placing at Salonica other small armed vessels to protect its qoasts and the commerce of its suhjecte from the attacks of pirates, who will, in all probability, show themselves, should the new Greek government prove too weak to con trol the turbulent class of its people. The late Russian Minister at Athens, M. Catacazy, arrived here on the 2d, in the Etwile Polaire, and y...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Chairman, Committee and District Com mittees of the Perth Totrn Trwt, and the Ratepayers in general. Gentlemen, — Permit me to lay before you a p'nn lor doing much more with a given amount of rate than is accomplished at present, and this too by a way thai will prove ornamental as well as useful to the town, and injurious to none. My plan is as follows, — lo obtain from the govern ment a sum of money sufficient to build a hand some and substantial jail in Perth ; this sum to he repaid, principal and interest, by seven or five , annual payments, from a fund to be raised by assessment on the allotments. This will do good, firstly, by causing a stir amongst the numerous body of citizens, from the carpenter down to the hod-man, not to be despis ed in these villanous times ; secondly, by adding to our public buildings, one, which might easily he made ornamental ; and thirdly, by giving us for rnanvtyears the cheapest labour for our town improvements, viz., the labo...

FREE-TRADE AND THE WHIGS. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 1 May 1844

TREE-TRADE AND THE WHIGS. Tf we are to believe the rumours current in the political world, the lead inn whigF, und more especially Lonl John Russi'jl, hav* ns yet shown no symptoms «-i' yielding '?' the txiircricirs nf the limp, ami the importunities of their supporters, un-i abandoning tile MHtenable position of a fixed duty on corn for the purposes o( agricultural protec tion. Tliis uppears in itse! f such strange infatuation, that, although the. report in question has reached us on the sanction of very high authority, we feel reluctant to credit it. The potion of the old aristocratic Whig party with re gard to the Liberal interest ami middle classes, is such at the present moment that any hesitation on the part of such ns Lord John Russell in declaring frankly and decid edly for the principles of free-trade can scarcely fail to be ruinous to them as public men a»d as leaders of a party. The weak point of the Whigs undoubtedly is, a wtuit of confidence on the part of the commercia...

(From the ' Delhi Gazette' Oct. 28.) On the 6th September last, a messenger named Luteef, from Colonel Stoddart, arrived at Hyder abad (in Scinde), where he made himself known to a British officer late in political employ, hav ing leit Bokhara 80 days previous. He travelled by the Candahar route, in hopes of finding some British officer there to whom he might deliver his letters, some of which were addressed to Major Todd by certain chiefs in Turkistan, others being from Colonel Stoddart himself. He was most unfortunately robbed of all these papers in the Pisheen valley by Meer Dil Khan, by whom he was beaten, but suffered io proceed on lib way. He states that he left the colonel alive and well, though a prisoner in the citadel of Bokhara. It seems, further, that on Captain Conolly's arrival at Bokharra from Kokan, Colonel Stoddart and he lived together, first in the house of Sumround Khan, and afterwards in a house supplied by the King in the city. About 60 days after Conolly's arr...
