CHARACTER OF LOUIS PHILLIPPE; from the Morning Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 9 June 1841

CHAR.UTiiK up Louis l'aiLLii'i'E ; fiom the Morn ing Chronicle. Though we have occasionally disapproved of the policy of Louis Phillipjie, aud may have thought that he took a more direct part in the Government thun in strictness be longed to the fi'.ueiions of a constitutional King, we h;tv« always been ready to do justice to his great poweva of mind, his virtues, his kindness of disposition, and many ex cellent qualities. With regard even to his tenacity of pow er, which it seems dirlicult to reconcile with lninisteiul re sponsibility, we are aware that much may be said in his fa vour from tlie great difficulty in a country like France — convulsed by a succession of revolutions — of establishing an approximation even to the iixed habits which in tlas country litive been derived from the predominance for a century and a half of a powerful aristocracy, or rather oligarchy. Louis Phillippc, it must be recollected, lias lived through nil the French revolutions, and is evidently strongl...

THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, JUNE 9, 1841. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 9 June 1841

WEDNESDAY, JUNE 9, 1841. Bv the Trusty, we have English news down to the 19th January last. The war with the Pacha of Egypt seems to be entirely at an end, Mehemet All being wearied of waiting for the co-operation of France, and satisfied that he is unable to stand against the force the Allied Powers have brought against him. It appears that a convention has been made between Com modore Napier and Mehemet Ali, by which the latter, on condition of retaining the hereditary pachaiic of Egypt in bis family, consents to sub mit to the four powers, and to abandon his con quests in Syria. Some doubts are expressed as to whether the Porte will consent to this arrange-^ ment, and indeed whether the four powers will ratify the convention, but, on the whole, we see little reason to doubt that the affair will be amica bly settled on the above terms, and that the Allies will advwe the Sultan to grant to Mehemet Ali the hereditary possession of Egypt, as the governor of ^ a Turkish province, and ...

VARIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 9 June 1841

VARIETIES. The English papers of December and January are full of accounts regarding the weather; an unusual fall of snow having taken place, and the frost more than commonly severe. According to the Examiner, one of the engines on the Midland Counties railway, when within a mile of Derby, became useless, the pumps being frozen ! — rather an extraordinary casualty we should imagine. On the 3d January last, a most terrific storm burst over the metropolis, and seems indeed to have been pretty general throughout the country. Great injury was done to the 6pire and roof of Spitalfields Church, and the steeple of Streatham Church was entirely-destroyed. In Birming ham, Wolverhampton, and several other places, the effects of the storm were severely felt. The debts and liabilities of Messrs. Wright and Co. are estimated at something under a million sterling. The bankrupts had no less than 2,500 banking accounts, and the sum of .£500,000 was proved for by about 700 creditors, on the choice o...

INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 16 June 1841

ivntA. (From the 'Examiner') i Scitide and Afghanistan: Surrender of Dost Maho ' med. — The forts of Chureeker, Tobtandurra, Joolgah, and Babooshgur, in Kohistan, have been captured by the force under the command of Major-General Sir R. Slade. The Io6b on the side of the British appears to have been but trifling. Captain Conolly ,-of the Oth Bengal Cavalry, was killed at the first-mentioned place. Liput. Shaw, of the 2d Bengal N. I., was murdered in his tent at Cabul by his own servant. The most important event is the defeat of Dost Maho med at I'urwur, iu Kohistan, on the 2d November, by Sir B. Slade. The enemy were completely routed. Their chief having fled from the contest, and tode a distance of nearly one hundred miles on horseback, unconditionally surrendered himself into the hands of Sir \V. M'Nughteu, our Envoy at the Court of Caboul. He now ceases to give further grounds of uneasiness, and will probably spend the remainder of his days a prisoner at large, and pensioner of t...

THE FUNERAL OF NAPOLEON. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 16 June 1841

THE FUNERAL OF NAPOLEON. The re-entombment of the remains of the Em peror Napoleon took place on Tuesday. An in tense frost prevailed, but a lovelier day in winter was never seen — so that some of the military pre sent exclaimed, in the words of Napoleon at one of hi* battles ' Tis the sun of Austerlitz.' The Parisians, too, used to remark that the Emperor was fortunate on his fete days, as it never rained. The same fortune attended the honours to his re mains. The procession reached St. Gcrmains on Monday afternoon ; thousands had gone to dif ferent places on the rivei to witness , it. Until Monday, for above a week, a thick fog had cover ed Paris. All the way up the Seine to Courbe voie due respect was paid to the imposing scene, but the coffin was not landed until Tuesday morn ing. The cold was so intense that some of the decorations at Neuilly could not be completed until the morning of the ceremony. One of these was a column 150 feet high, which was to have been surmounted by a...

ON THE ADVANTAGES OF ADVERTISING. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 16 June 1841

ON THE ADVANTAGES OF ADVERTISING. The following has been sent to us from a cor respondent, and we at least cannot but feel duly impressed with the truth of his remarks. The writer begs we will not consider it as a puff — we certainty do not ; on the contrary, we view it as a subject to which it is right to call public at tention : — ' I have reason to believe that the amount of business done in this colony is very great as com pared with its population; yet who can doubt that individuals would be very greatly advantaged in their various callings bj' advertising. How fre quently does it happen to all cf us that we have been in want of an article fora length of time, and to 3 lato discover that such has been selling at a low price in consequence of a supposed want of demand. The person in want of any thing might often advantageously advertise for it; yet it se ;ms still move advantageous to him who wishes to sell, as he would thus bring so many customers, whom he would otherwise never...

RURAL ECONOMY. ENGLISH AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. [Continued from No. 32,] [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 16 June 1841

RURAL ECONOMY. ENGLISH AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. [Continued from No. 82,] ' It may be fairly said that the lightest plough in these trials was Harts, though Ransome's FF ran it exceedingly near (and beat it on ano ther trial.) Harts has an open mould board. Ransome's Rutland plough appears to be a very good implement : the Scotch swing plough to be the heaviest of all the modern ploughs which were tried, not to make a clean furrow, to be out of the question upon any light soil, and to be by no means the best upon a heavy one.' Two other important circumstances Mr. Pusey seems to have noticed — ' The nearer the horse is brought to the plough, the more he will draw up wards. The two horses are in general brought as near to it as is consistent with the freedom of their hind-legs. There is, however, in the Scotch harness a contrivance by which the line of draught is shortened still more, and to which Mr. Morton justly, I think, attaches much importance: a backhand of strong leather, 3| inch...

Importance of Chusan. — Should our Government hold Chusuu, it will be a place of much importance ; the whole trade would be thrown in here ; the Pekiu authorities are well aware of this, and would rather do anything than have a protracted war.
