EARLY HISTORY OF THE CONVICT TAWELL. [From the Globe.] [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 8 July 1845
EARLY HISTORY OF THE CONVICT TAWELL. [From the Globe.] FROM sources of information to which we have had exclusive access, we have already supplied many interesting facts connected with the history of the convict Tawell. We are now enabled to append authentic particu- lars of his early years. This narrative will comprehend the period from his birth to the time when he was detected as a forger, and sent to Sydney as a transport felon. These one who is a native of a village near to that in which Tawell was born ; was a schoolmate of the now wretched man ; and was his associate in early youth. On his return to this country, Tawell resumed his intimacy, and continued to hold occasional intercourse with him up to the time of his apprehension for the murder for which he is to die. The convict John Tawell was born in 1784 ; was the second son of Thomas Tawell, who for a considerable number of years kept a general shop in the parish of Aldeby, a village in Norfolk, about six miles from Beccl...

THE SALT HILL MURDER. [From the Morning Post, March 26.] Aylesbury, Monday. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 8 July 1845
THE SALT HILL MURDER. &nbsp; &nbsp; [From the Morning Post, March 26.] Aylesbury, Monday. Great exertions have been made in behalf of Tawell, with a view of obtaining what is termed a " review of the medical evidence which so materially assisted in procuring his conviction. Letters of advice and encou- ragement pour in from all quarters, both to the prisoner, and to Mrs. Tawell, at Berk- hamstead. The petition got up in this town on behalf of all persons condemned to death was signed by 164 persons. A tradesman &nbsp; of Aylesbury (who set it on foot) took it to London this morning, for the purpose of presenting it to the Home Secretary, Sir James Graham, having informed Lord Nu- gent that he could not receive it privately. It is fully expected that some extraordinary disclosures relating to this matter will be eventually made. A mysterious silence is, however, for the presont observed upon the subject. Mrs. Tawell and his daughter, and the brother of the pri...

THE WOOL MARKETS. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 8 July 1845
THE WOOL MARKETS. LEEDS.—Foreign wools continue to main- tain great firmness in prices ; but the busi- ness done during the past week in German sorts has been rather limited, imputable to the little choice left in the market. On the arrival of fresh stocks, which may be looked for daily, a brisk demand may be confidently anticipated. We have no change to notice in our report of this week, either in prices or sales of English. LIVERPOOL.—The arrivals of wool are still limited. As the stocks on hand are light, and in general not of the most saleable de- scription, the business transacted is not very extensive. Prices, however, continue firm, &nbsp; and a steadily-improving demand is confi- dently anticipated. We are obliged by press of local matter to &nbsp; omit much European Intelligence already in type.
Miscellancous Shipping. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 8 July 1845
MISCELLANEOUS SHIPPING Sale.—The cutter Hero has been delivered up to Messrs. Henty Brothers, who had previously bar- gained for her purchase. She was tried in a cruize in the bay, by her new owners, and the lit- tle craft, we hear, promises to answer the purposes of bay whaling admirably well.—Portland Guar- dian. The William.—This cutter, bound for Adelaide, &nbsp; put in at Belfast on Monday, 23rd June, through stress of weather, and resumed her voyage on &nbsp; Thursday with a fair wind. The Elîza, 632 tons, Capt. Snell, R.N., was ad- &nbsp; vertised to leave Glasgow for Port Phillip and &nbsp; Sydney, in all February, with Merchandise.
ENGLISH EXTRACTS. STATE OF TRADE IN ENGLAND. 31st March, 1845. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 8 July 1845
ENGLISH EXTRACTS. STATE OF TRADE IN ENGLAND. 31st March, 1845. &nbsp; BRADFORD.—There has been a very fair amount of business done here, both for the &nbsp; home and export trade. In the piece mar- ket business is brisk. The wool market still continues very dull ; the spinners barely supplying their wants. They make sad com- plaints of the high prices demanded by the staplers. There ia a fair demand for yarns without any alteration in prices. HECKMONDWIKE.—On Monday there was a &nbsp; good attendance of buyers, and more was done than is usual on market days. Thurs- day's market was rather flat. HALIFAX.—Both in wool and manufac- tured goods, little has been done to-day. In prices there is little or no alteration. HUDDERSFIELD.—Owing to the recent very &nbsp; large purchases of spring goods by the mer- chants, they apparently now entertain alight fears that some of the goods may be left on their hands ; they therefore buy with cau- tion, and on Tuesday...

SABBATH SCHOOLS IN LONDON. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 8 July 1845
SABBATH SCHOOLS IN LONDON. THE following statistics have been fur- nished by the British Sunday School Union. They shew the number of Sabbath Schools of four denominations in London, viz. :- Church of England. . . . . . . 45 Baptists. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 71 Wesleyans. . . . . . . . . . . . . 95 Independents . . . . . . . . . . 160 and thus it appears that the Dissenters in the metropolis of the Empire do seven times as much for religious education as the Es- tablishment. " The Church of England is the bulwark of Pro- testantism."—Dr. Nixron's speech at the Pub- lic Meeting on 3rd instant. Dr. Wiseman, the Roman Catholic Vicar of the Midland District, writes thus con- &nbsp; cerning a large number of thc Church of &nbsp; England clergy :- " It seems to me impossible to rend the works approach to our Holy Church, both in doctrine and feeling. Our Saints and Popes have become dear &nbsp; to them little by little . . . . . our rites are pre- cious in th...
VAN DIEMEN'S LAND SOCIETY FOR THE PROMOTION OF CHRISTIAN KNOWLEDGE, AND FOR THE PROPAGATION OF THE GOSPEL IN FOREIGN PARTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 8 July 1845
VAN DIEMEN'S LAND SOCIETY FOR THE PROMOTION OF CHRISTIAN KNOWLEDGE, AND FOR THE PROPAGATION OF THE GOSPEL IN FOREIGN PARTS. A MEETING of this society was held at the Mechanics' Institute on Thursday evening, Sir J. E. Wilmot in the chair. Bishop NIXON opened the proceedings by prayer, after which the Committee's Report was read by the Secretary. In moving the first resolution to the effect that the report should be printed, the Rev. Mr. GELL expressed himself sensible of the honour conferred upon him. The first thing that struck him while hearing the Report was, that the efforts made had been but small,—there had been but little done. He called upon those who heard him to join in the work more earnestly,—in a work to which he felt himself incompetent to do justice. There were others better able than himself to lay their duty before them ; but in one respect he would yield to none, in his conviction of the importance of that duty. Could he reveal to others all that he knew, they coul...
ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 8 July 1845
ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. OUR columns contain copious extracts from the late English papers ; but little of poli- tical importance. The reported discovery on the fall of Santa Anna of documents in his possession engaging the cession of Cali- fornia to England for a sum of 25,0)00,000 piastres, about which the Americans were very indignant, as we recently shewed on the authority of their papers, proves to be without foundation. Mr. Stuart Wortley questioned the Premier on the subject in the House of Commons, when the following answer, containing a smart hit, was eli- cited :- " Sir, I see a great many reports spread abroad with reference to the undermining ambition of Great Britain ; but I rather think they are oftener circulated as a palliation of the ambition of others than of the British Government. (Loud cheers.) I can also answer for the late Government upon this point, as I lind no trace whatever of such a cor- respondence. I repeat it, the report is utterly destitute of any founda...
NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 8 July 1845
NEW ZEALAND. THE sad intelligence from New Zealand confirms with painful accuracy the pre- dictions of the missionaries, who knew the temper of the people and the nature of thc country. A fatal blindness prevented the Ministry from foreseeing the conse- quences which ever follow European colo- nization, and the cost of wealth and blood at which alone the powerful tribes could be subdued to acquiescence. The clergy declared the certainty of opposition, which they assumed not merely from a common survey of causes which act with uniformity, but from close observation of the aboriginal character. They knew that the natives were fierce, fond of war, jealous of encroachment, and addicted to revenge. Their acquaintance with the scriptures had reduced the prominence of savage vices ; but even the sacred volume is full of animating passages, glowing with patriotism. The maxims of docility and submission taught by the gospel, since they do not encourage slavish subservience, could hardly be e...
LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 8 July 1845
LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. ACCIDENT.—A prisoner of the Crown, at Oyster Cove, engaged in sawing timber, &nbsp; whilst a portion of his gang was felling a &nbsp; tree, the tree unexpectedly fell, and his skull &nbsp; was fractured from which death ensued. The Coroner subjected the overseer to a strict examination so as to ascertain whether due precaution had been observed in the dis- tribution of the men to obviate such acci- dents. A verdict of accidental death was returned. INQUEST—An inquest was held on Friday on view of the body of Eliza North. The deceased had been addicted to habits of in- temperance, which, however, in consequence of ill health bad been discontinued for about a week. On the morning of her death she felt better, and entrusted a little girl with her infant to take out ; the girl on her return in about ten minutes found her in bed and life extinct. Dr. Bright, who had been in the habit of attending her attributed her death to apoplexy, to which e...

THE OBSERVER. HOBART TOWN, TUESDAY, JULY 8. THE MEETING OF COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 8 July 1845
THE OBSEEVER. HOBART TOWN, TUESDAY, JULY 8 THE MEETING OF COUNCIL THE colony has no time to lose, the Secre- tory of State has conducted us to the verge of a crisis. Were he the only medium of &nbsp; access to the Sovereign, the calm delibera- tion with which he dooms the people of this island, would teach us the folly of remon- strance, and the impotence of complaint. But we have still the refuge of Parliament and may find intercessors there in our coun- trymen who naturally abhor injustice. The under the sanction of the Crown is contem- plated by his Lordship without compunc- tion, and noticed in the language of derision, as though no enticements had been offered, and no advantages assured to the many respectable families, the capitalists, the me- chanics and the labourers, who left their native land with the distinct concurrence of the Crown. When their emigration was so- licited, they did not indeed receive a parch- ment bonds containing a detail of their privi- leges, b...
