LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 10 June 1845
LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. THE NEW NORFOLK MURDER.—The trial of the prisoners who stand charged with the commission of this murder is deferred until next session. The Court was crowded yesterday morning in expecta- tion of the trial, and the prisoners Lockwood, Gomm, and Taylor stood at the bar, all apparently firm and collected, when the Attorney-General submitted to the Chief Justice that a principal witness in the case was Keo, a Sandwich Island native ; that he (the Attorney-General) had ob- tained an interpreter of what this witness should affirm, and he was prepared to enter upon the case. His Honor, however, after asking the Sandwich Island boy various questions, apparently with a view to discover his capability of giving evidence, expressed himself of opinion that the trial would better be deferred till the next sessions, when the witness would be able more satisfactorily, and without the intervention of an interpreter, to give his evidence, as he was evidently advancing in a knowl...
ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the " Observer," [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 10 June 1845
ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the " Observer," SIR,—Observing in yout first number that you intend to lend your aid in the cause of National Education, and as I consider the present system every way suited to the wants of this Colony, I have to request the insertion of a few remarks upon the subject. I would beg to direct your at- tention to the last number of the Advertiser, in which appears an article, copied I presume from some English journal, and headed " Protest of the Bishops," signed by some half dozen of the Irish Bishops. Of the article itself I have not much to say, and will only remark, that a system that is in every way suited to thc constitution of this Colony may not suit Ireland, where the greater part of the population is Roman Catholic ; but I would request particular attention to thc learned editor's remarks upon the article in question. After referring to the state of education in Scotland and Prussia, he goes on to denounce the present system in this...
LOSS OF THE "TOBAGO." [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 10 June 1845
LOSS OF THE " TOBAGO." RESPECTING the unfortunate loss of this vessel, reported in our last, the following letter has been received here :- Port Office, George Town, 4th June, 1845. Sir,—It is my painful duty to inform you of the stranding (and, 1 fear, the total loss) of the brig &nbsp; Tobago, coal-laden from Sydney, on the Western &nbsp; Reef, near the beacon, at the entrance of this river. She entered the Heads last night after dark, &nbsp; in charge of Mr. Foister, while blowing strong from the N.E. ; weather dark and squally, with heavy rain. Mr. Hinton was dispatched in the boaeding boat to place a lantern on the barrel &nbsp; beacon, and before he could effect it Mr. Forster mistook a light on shore for the lantern, which led to the sad catastrophe. On its coming to my knowledge I immediately repaired to the Low Heads, and sent the launch and boarding boats from George Town for the purpose of carrying out anchors ; but from the state of the we...
ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 10 June 1845
ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. By the Elizabeth Henry from Dublin, which arrived yesterday afternoon, a con- siderable and important addition has been received to our English intelligence, of which we shall give more full accounts on Thursday, but at present we must confine ourselves to the most important heads. On the 4th of Feruary Her Majesty opened Parliament by the following speeches from the Throne :- " MY LORDS AND GENTLEMEN, " I rejoice that I am enabled, on again meeting you in Parliament, to congratulate you on the im- proved condition of tlie country. " Increased activity pervades almost every branch of manufacture. Trade and commerce have been extended at home and abroad, and among all classes of my people there is generally prevalent a spirit of loyalty and cheerful obedience to the law. " I continue to receive from all Foreign Pow- ers and States assurances of their friendly dis- position. " I have had much satisfaction in receiving at my Court the Sovereigns who, in the course...

SUPREME COURT—CRIMINAL SIDE. TUESDAY, 3RD JUNE, 1845. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 10 June 1845
SUPREME COURT-CRIMINAL SIDE. TUESDAY, 3RD JUNE, 1845. Before His Honor the Chief Justice, who at 10 o'clock took his seat on the Bench. The public, we have no doubt, recollect that, at the last Criminal Session, a man was indicted for having in his possession a forged plate, for the payment of the sum of £5, on the Commercial Bank, when Mr. Justice Montagu, who presided at the trial, being of opinion that, as the information did not set forth the inscription on the plate, the indictment could not be sustained, and the prisoner would have been discharged had not the Attorney-General applied to His Honor to remand him, in order that a fresh indictment might be framed, wherein the omissions might be rectified ; and such having been done. Thomas Dagnell was placed at the bar to answer the charge, which, having been proved to the satisfaction of the jury, he was found guilty of. A private soldier named Keyser, who has been confined in H. M. gaol for a consi- derable time, and with whose ...
O'CONNELL AND THE ROMAN CATHOLIC PRELATES. (From The Spectator.) [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 10 June 1845
O'CONNELL AND THE ROMAN CA- &nbsp; THOLIC PRELATES. &nbsp; (From The Spectator.) The political sympathies of men of letters are most frequently what is called aristocra- &nbsp; tic. Even those among them whose opin- &nbsp; ions are liberal—favourable to innovation are more inclined to patronize the populace than to stand on terms of intimacy and fa- miliarity with them. The pursuits of the man of letters form him to habits of syste- matic if not comprehensive thought, and &nbsp; imbue him with a fastidiousness of taste : such qualities are incompatible with the blind headlong impulses and inconsequences which characterize the movements of the masses. The man of letters is apt, when a Liberal, to protest against what is not en regle—to lecture—to give offence—to see more energetic and versatile but more vulgar and ill-informed leaders preferred to himself—and to retire from the struggle in disgust. It is not the least valuable feature of our po...

EMANCIPATE THE CLERGY! EMANCIPATE THE PEOPLE! [From the Sydney Atlas.] [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 10 June 1845
EMANCIPATE THE CLERGY ! EMAN- CIPATE THE PEOPLE ! [From the Sydney Atlas.] &nbsp; WE have seen in former articles (or ra- ther two articles in one) on this subject, that the absolute and irresponsible authority which the Anglican and Romish Bishops of this co- lony are permitted respectively to exercise over the clerico-political forces under their &nbsp; command ; these forces being, at the same time maintained from the public funds of the colony, without the consent of the colo- nists—is dangerous in the extreme to the liberties of the people. But there is another danger, of which, as British colonists, we are bound to take cognizance, although in doing so wo can scarcely expect the sympathy of the Catholic brethren of the colonial laity ; there is another danger to be apprehended from the same quarter, equally serious and imminent, we moan the design of the trai- torous and entire subversion of our Protes- tant religion. Of nothing less than this, as the real tend...

THE BRUSH LEECHES AND THE DEATH ADDER. [Extracts from Mr. Hodgkinson's Australia from Port Macquarie to Mereton Bay.] [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 12 June 1845
THE BRUSH LEECHES AND THE DEATH ADDER. [Extracts from Mr. Hodgkinson's Australia from Port Macquarie to Moreton Bay.] BRUSH LEECHES.—Those reptiles, the brush leeches, were also roused into activiy by the rain : they are similar to the leeches of stagnant ponds, and abound in the dank rotten masses of leaves and decomposed wood of the brushes. These leeches attach themselves to the boots of persons travers- ing the brush, and soon manage to crawl under trousers or gaiters and find the skin. They then gorge themselves with blood, whilst the small punctures they make remain painful and inflamed for several days afterwards, I have frequently, after standing at rest for a few moments in a brush, picked off a dozen leeches at a time from my legs, which they had commenced sucking ; and my feet generally became covered with blood, whenever I had to survey rivers or creeks along their brushy banks. THE DEATH ADDER.—This hideous reptile is of a dusky hue, seldom more than two feet and a half...
SCHISM. Extracte from "PROTESTANT THOUGHTS," IN RHYME, by the Hon. and Rev. BAPTIST W. NOEL, Chaplain to Her Majesty the Queen. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 12 June 1845
SCHISM. Extracted from " PROTESTANT THOUGHTS," IN RHYME, by the Hon, and Rev. BAPTIST W. NOEL, Chaplain to her Majesty the Queen. [From the Launceston Examiner.] There is in this vain world a little Hock, Redeemed from hell and wrath, from crime and guilt ; For whom the Saviour bore the dreadful shock Of righteous vengeance, when his blood He spilt. Sought by his mercy, and by grace renewed, They trust in Him alone with lowly faith ; Feed on his death, as on their daily food. Love what He loves, and do whate'er He saith. Some Baptist or Wesleyan views may draw ; Some may their church-forms Independent call ; Some mny espouse the Presbyterian law ; And some prefer a church Episcopal. Some, with an honest zeal, the Lord to serve, Uphold the union of thc Church and State ; Some, fearing from the Gospel rule to swerve, The Voluntary System advocate. Each by redeeming love is saved from hell ; Ench by free grace a child of God is made ; Within them all the Spirit deigns to dwell, And for...
