English Extracts. NEGRO EMANCIPATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 12 March 1835

NEGRO EMANCIPATION. [FROM'TIIE LONDON PATRIOT OF iST OCTOBER LAST.] THE intelligence from our West India colonies, though of a somewhat chequered character, is, upon the whole, satisfactory, The partial dis.. turbances ,which have taken place, have evidently arisen from. misapprehension on the part of the emancipated negroes, and mismanagement, or something. worse,, on the part of their masters. 'That the negroes should not understand the ,apprentice scheme, is not to be wondered at. " Hal dey be call.dat free, dey go loose de one hand and bind. de uder, .dey be call dat free." Such is the shrewd comment of the negroes .themselves. And when ,they hear that, in Any tigua,, their sable brethren have been at, once ": made free, it is not suprising that they should have deemed themselves entitled to the same. .boon. All the temporary insubordination which has' attended the' transition from slavery to freedom; may be traced-to this precious apprentice scheme, the absurdity of which we ha...

DISEASE OF WHEAT. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 12 March 1835

DISEASE OF WHEAT. WIHEAT is subject to various accidents and diseases, sbme of them peculiar to itself. The most dread ed and destructive of these is blight, so termed from its effect upon the ear, or mildew, from its supposed cause; namely mel-dew from an old opinion that it was prodiuced by honey-dew falling from the air. This disease is indicated by the presence of certain minute ~lan~ts of the order of Fungi, or the mushroom tribe, which grow upon the sterh.and leaves, and doubtless feed upon and exhaust the. juices of the plant. When this occurs at a period so late that the seed is already formed, it does not materially affect it, the straw only suffering in this 'case. But.when it occurs when the seed is in an embryo state, the fur. ther progress of the seed to maturity is arrested; and it is found when cut down to be shrivelled and abor tive. One of this tribe of plants, and apparently the most destructive is puccinia graminis which appears in the form of small spots on the s...
