WELLINGTON FALLS. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 2 January 1846
WELLINGTON FALLS. I WK have the satisfaction of announcing that the road along thc south-east side of Mount Wellington, now in progress for the purpose of giving facility to those who arc desirous of visiting the cataract, is so far advanced, that pedestrians will bc enabled to go thc whole of the distance hy the end of this week. We congratulate thc inhabitants of Hobart Town that, by thc formation of the Wellington road, they have gained access, by a walk of about three or four hours, to one of the wonders of thc world. In giving it this designation, we do not nllude to thc cataract alone, or to thc volume of water precipitated down the abyss. The amazing depth of the chasm as seen from above-thc stream at thc bottom meandering amongst thc rocks, dwindled by the distance to the appearance of a beautiful silver thread-thc terrillic majesty of tho wall of basalt rising abruptly on each side to a height, in some places of 3 or 400 feet ; the immense masses resting on thc summit of wh...

MR. SMITH'S LETTER. TitE following letter, written by the son of F.

THE DESPATCHES. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 2 January 1846
TIIE DESPATCHES. VERY lengthy despatches bavebcen received, but we understand that they are silent about the payment of Police and Gaols. ThÍ3 will hardly be credited ; but to us it appears quite in harmony with the usual contempt manifested by the Colonial-office in regard to thc interests of the free colonists. Ltowevcr, in a few days we hope the real contents of the despatches will appear, and furnish matter of comment.
THE OBSERVER. HOBART TOWN, FRIDAY, JAN. 2. THE PAST YEAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 2 January 1846
T. HE 0 BSE RYE ll. HOBART TOWN. FRIDAY, JAN. 2. THE PAST YEAH. THE jourrmls of thc past year have ceased I to bc rnlvtabic bnt ns thc material of his- tory. The ordinary ambition of an cJitor is to amuse tho passing day by a faithful panorama of current affairs ; but whoever would transmit to futurity events which permanently influence society, must retrace thc steps of thc journalist, and consult his humble records. There are ephemeral questions and momentary passions the least cautious would not transcribe, or even the resentful desire to perpetuate. Amidst thc irritation of partizanship and thc ardour of debate, thc candid arc often unfair, and the generous apparently malevolent ; but they only will properly adjudicate between thc Press and its foes who understand thc prac- tical difficulties of its conductors. Their task is never completed-they arc expected to be lively though tho times be dull, ind copious in prevailing denrth. The intervals of publication are too brief for re...

LORD STANLEY. (From the Times, September 13.) "WHATEVER other chnrgcs hnve been rnised against the present Colonial Minister, that of partiality has never been suggested. No one can say, that while bc oppresses and brings ruin upon one settlement, ho favours any other. Our love of justice compels us to dare anyone to name that co- lony which lie has made an exception, or to quote any one of our possessions that holds him in honour as its patron, or in regard as its benefactor.

SOUTH AUSTRALIA IN IS 15. PROGUKSS OT THE COLONY. DUKING the year 18-15 this colony has made a much (Treater advance in prosperity and wealth than in any former year.

EARL GREY. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 2 January 1846
EARL GREY. We last week announced the death fo the venerable Earl Grey ; we this week give an outline of his life. Descended from a very ancient Northumbrian family of knightly rank, Earl Grey's father was the second son of his generation, and had entered early in life into the army. He was much dis- tinguished during the American war ; and, upon the breaking out of hostilities with the French Republic, he was appointed to the command of the land forces which were sent, in conjunction with the naval arma- ment under the command of Lord St. Vincent, to reduce the West India Islands. After his return he received the command of the southern district in England ; was sworn in a Privy Councillor, and elevated to the peerage by the title of Baron Grey de Howick. His lordship was advanced to a vis- county and earldom on the 11th April, 1806, &nbsp; &nbsp; by the title of Earl Grey and Viscount Howick. He married Elizabeth, daughter of George Grey, Esq., of Southwick, by who...

PORT PHILLIP.

The fame of Mr. Aitkon'a flocks which have long- maintained a Ililli reputa- tion, and tho novelty of an auction sale in tho bush with a champagne lunch accompa- niment drew together a very numerous as- semblage, almost all of wham being: on horseback or in gigs ur carriages, thc caval- cade had as may be supposed a very im- posing appearance. At one o'clock the company sat down to n splendid lunch in Mr. Aitken'* capacious wool-shed set out in a style of elegance which would have done credit to n first-rato town hotel. The viands were excellent and both varied, ami abundant, bul thc pride of the board was a gigantic saddle of mutton which erst funned part of the carcase of one of Mr. Aitken's own wethers, and attracted univerfal atten- tion, the solid fat on t...
