LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 1 July 1845
LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. THE LOSS OF THE " AMITY."—Intelli- gence reached this on Friday night of the loss of the Amity while on her passage to Port Albert. The circumstances of her loss we understand were these :—That on Wednesday, the 18th instant, about four o'clock in the morning, a heavy gale blowing, much snow falling, and the vessel being under close-reefed topsails, it being also very dark, the wind bearing from north- west, the Amity was sailing to the eastward of Cape Barren Island—the S. E. point of that island bearing to the S. and by W. —when she struck on a shoal about sixteen miles distant from land. The first time she struck her rudder was unshipped, and the second, it was carried off. Boats were immediately got ready, by means of which the whole crew and Mr. Gilbert the butcher, owner of the vessel, landed on the east coast of Flinders' Island by eight in the morning. Everything belonging to the crew was lost. While at Flinders' the party were discovered by the sealers f...

DR. NIXON. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 1 July 1845
DR. NIXON. A letter appears in another column re- lating to the painful situation in which the Prelate of the Episcopalian Church in this colony has been placed by Lord Stanley's Despatch. We have no doubt that con- siderations of temporal advantage will not be allowed to influence the decision of one whose conscientious devotion to his prin- ciples we have never questioned, although we might not sympathise in them.
THE "REVIEW " NO MORE! [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 1 July 1845
THE " REVIEW " NO MORE ! " Friend after friend departs, Who hath not lost a friend ?" THE Review is extinct! He whose genius so long gave intelligence and vigour to it has taken a farewell of the public! A whole community mourns, and we seek for language in which to express the general sorrow ! The Review, yes, the Review, is extinct " the light of other days is gone." No more will its truthful pages inform the credulous, no more will they indicate the course of wisdom and of goodness, no more will they exhibit the events of peace and war, no more delight retired veterans, no more deal out faithful anecdotes of the great de- parted, no more of " coming events cast the shadow heforc." He, the Protcus, whose thoughts were mirrored there,—now " the guished ornament, the father of the Tasmanian press, the hapless martyr to " thirty years' duration " of injustice,—he, has retired from the agitation and the turmoil of a public vocation ! Alas ! alas ! how do the mighty drop away—the age o...

MRS. CAUDLE'S CURTAIN LECTURES. LECTURE. MR. CAUDLE HAS LENT FIVE POUNDS TO A FRIEND. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 1 July 1845
MRS. CAUDLE'S CURTAIN LECTURES. LECTURE. MR. CAUDLE HAS LENT FIVE PUUNDS TO A FRIEND. " You ought to be very rich. Mr. Caudle I wonder who'd lend you five pounds ? But so it is : a wife may work and may slave ! Ha, dear! the many things that might have been done with five pounds ! As if people picked up money in the street ! But you al- ways were a fool, Mr. Caudle ! I've wanted a black satin gown these three years, and that five pounds would have pretty well bought it. But it's no matter how I go, not at all. Everybody says I don't dress as becomes your wife—and I don't ; but what's that to you. Mr. Caudle? Nothing. Oh no ! you can have fine feelings for everybody but those belonging to you. I wish people knew you, as I do—that's all. You like to be called liberal, and your poor family pays for it. " All the girls want bonnets, and when they're to get 'em I can't tell. Half five pound would have bought them—but now they must go without. Of course they be- long to you ; and anybody ...

AN ACCOUNT OF THE PERSECUTION AT KILLERTHAL, IN TYROL, IN 1838. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 1 July 1845
AN ACCOUNT OF THE PERSECUTION AT KILLERTHAL, IN TYROL, IN 1838. It appears to be the policy of the Austrian monarch, and of the priests in tho Alpine regions of the Tyrol and of Saltzburgh, that Protestantism shall have neither toleration nor existence Contrary to the treaty of Westphalia, the toleration edicts of Joseph H., and the act of the Germanic confede- ration, which secured liberty of conscience to all the subjects of the empire, the Protes- tants, both of formers days and of the pre- sent time, have been banished from the mountains and the valleys of Tyrol and the Saltza. The more infection of genuine Protestantism is dreaded by the Roman hier- archy, and therefore it must, if possible, be prevented or destroyed. Hence the recent expulsion of the Zillerthal seceders from the Romish church. Zell, the principal town in the lovely valley of the Ziller, is in the neighbourhood of Saltzburg, and forms part of the diocese of the archbishop of that cir- cle or province. The inhab...

Present number of Jews. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 1 July 1845
Present number of Jews. Some erroneous statements concerning the existing number of the seed of Abraham in the world, have drawn out from Mr. Noah, of New York, the following statistics which are worthy of publication. Mr. N. is said to be well informed respecting the con- dition of this people, and we presume the estimate is to be relied on as accurate. The total number of Jews he places at full six millions, which are divided and located as follows :— In all parts of ancient Poland, before the partition of 1772.............. 1,000,000 In Russia, comprehending Moldavia and Wallachia............. 200,000 In the different States of Germany 750,000 In Holland and Belgium............... 80,000 In Sweden and Denmark ........... 6,000 &nbsp; In France............ 75,000 In England............... 60,000 &nbsp; In the Italian States................ 200,000 &nbsp; In all North and South America, &nbsp; and the West Indies. 100,000 In the Mohammedan States of ...
