AN UNIVERSAL NEWSPAPER TO SUIT ALL TASTES AND OPINIONS. (From Bentley's Miscellany, for June, 1844.) [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 24 December 1844

AJÍ UNIVERSAL NEWSPAPER TO SUIT ALL TASTES AND OPINIONS. (From Bentley's Miscellany, for June, 1844.) A NEWSPAPER maintaining perfectly impartial opinions in politics being as difficult to discover as the philosopher's stone, it is proposed that two editors, of eminent abilities, but of diamet- rically opposite opinions, shall conduct these pages, so that those who like to cotitemnlate every view of every subject shall thus have an opportunity to do so, while such persons as feel, like the Irish judge, that to hear both sides only confuses them, may conflue their studies to that which pleas« s them best. All reports favorable to either party shall be confidently stated on one page, and as confidently contradicted on the other. During every election the probable state of the poll shall be calculated and conjectured with a totally opposite result on corresponding columns ; and, in discussing the 6 ta te of Ireland, it shall be described ou the oue side as per- fectly peaceable, aud on...

IMPORTANT DISCOVERY. A Smoothing-iron, on a perfectly new construc- tion, has been recently in rented at Paris, which proves iufallable for removing wrinkles from the face.

SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 24 December 1844

SYDNEY. i Mn. M-Lr.AT. ii was said, was about resigning the Speakership cn account of pecuniary difficulties. The Register contains the following observations on thc subject : -" Even in the Legislative Council itself, where sonic appearance at least of virtue and good taste might be expected to be kept up, there seems to bc no disguise thought necessary to the spirit of hire faced robbery that prevails among the representatives of thc people. It was only within the last few days that a report (perhaps unfounded) got abroad that the honorable Speaker was involved in pecuniary difficulties, and would be compelled to resign his feat. One would have thought that honorable members!, under such circumstances, would have hesitated to the last in believing such a report ; that previous to its absolute confirmation they would have taken no step in the matter; and that,even then, delicacy and good taste would have prevented them from anticipating the act of re- signation by any selfish act o...

PUBLIC DINNER AND TESTIMONY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 24 December 1844

PUBLIC DINNER AND TESTIMONY. A. gold watch and appendages was presented yesterday to Monsieur Philips, the celebrated French conjuror, on account of his recent ex- ertions for the public amusement, and a dinner of his friends and admirers took place at the Crown aud Anchor tavern. On this occasion he exhibited a few novel and amusing tricks, having turned a gentleman's coat without the wearer being conscious of it. He also threw a quantity of ribbon, silk, and buckram into a large wheel, when immediately several beauti- fully shaped, fashionable bonnets were pro duced ; and he undertook, when any lady had turned her silk dress twice, to bring out a third side, which should look as good as new. To conclude the evening, after returning thanks for the honour done him by the ladies and gentle- men present, who were no conjurors, he pro- posed as a toast, with true French gallantry, ** Petticoat government! being the otily legiti- mate government which has continued uninter- rupted since...

CÍÍC ^outíj lustra lean. ADELAIDE : TUESDAY, DECEMBER 24, 1S44. THE " HAWK." FROM SYDNEY, MELBOURNE, AND PORTLAND BAY. BY the Hawk, vre have received files and in- telligence from Sydney to 30th Nov.; from Port Phillip lo lOih Dec. ; and from Portland Bay to 14th Dec. The papers contain English news (o 12th August, which» with colonial intelligence, will be found in our subsequent columns. The English news is interesting, aud highly satisfactory. The Queen, on Aug. 6th, gave birth to another son*. The wool market was firm at former quota- tions, and it was fully expected that the Sep- tember sales would be wei! attended, and prices maintained. The Emperor of Morocco had at last been brought to his senses by the belligerent Prince de Join vt I le. Justas the latter was about to bombard Tangiers, the Emperor commissioned one of the Pachas to sue for peace. Thc war is now, therefore, in all probability at no end.

HIGH-FLYING EXTRAORDINARY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 24 December 1844

HIGH-FLYING EXTRAORDINARY. During the [ate severe hurricane, a remarkably fine buy, ten years of age, was observed ou his way to school, when turning a sharp corner to- wards Westminster Bridge, the wind suddenly caught his umbrella, and blew him rapidly along towards the new Houses of Parliament. He clung tenaciously to the handle, till a violent blast lifted him at length from the ground, and, when last seen, he was flying over the roofs of some houses in Hyde Park Place, towards Bayswater. The distance rendered him at last invisible to the naked eye ; but if any one can send intelligence which may restore him to his afflicted pareuts, a handsome reward shall be given.
