THE EASTRN QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 11 August 1841

THE EASTRN QUESTION. Galignani's Messenger contains the following statement on the subject of the eastern question, to which importance is attached : — ' On Friday evening Count Von Hartig, at tache to the Austrian embassy, left Paris with despatches from Count d'Appony to the Cabinet of Vienna. We believe we can affirm that these despatches relate to conferences which have taken place within the last few days between M. Guiz ot and the ambassadors of the powers which took part in the conference of London, concerning pro testations of Mehemet Ali against the obnoxious stipulations of the Sultan's firman. The repre sentatives of these powers have informed M. Guiz ot (hat, as to the right claimed by the Sultan of nominating the superior officers of the Egyptian army, they consider it an affair of internal ad ministeration, in which, according to the spirit of the treaty of July 15, they cannot interfere. With regard, however, to the principle of absolute hereditary right to the pachal...

HOW TO MAKE WATER TANKS. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 11 August 1841

HOW TO MAKE WATER TANKS. We copy the following account of tankmak ing from a Sydney paper, giving, as it does, a man's practical experience of the subject. The remarks and instructions it conveys are equally applicable to this country, and may prove of essential benefit to many persons whose farms are badly watered. The communication is in the form of a letter to the editor of the Colonist: — ' Having road your leading articie nn Tank-making) allow me to add my mite of information upon a subject by which every man may command a 6upply of the grand tHStntial of life, water, on hie own property.

OPINIONS OF THE FRENCH JOURNALS ON THE SUBJECT OF THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN GREAT BRITAIN AND THE UNITED STATES. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 11 August 1841

OPINIONS OF THE FRENCH JOURNALS ON THE SUBJECT OF THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN GREAT BRITAIN AND THE UNITED STATES. The subject which engages the attention of the Paris press in preference to all others, and, in deed, of almost all classes of society, is the pro bability of a war between Great Britain and the United States. If England were alone to suffer in the struggle, satisfaction would be unbounded in France. But when it is considered that one of the first consequences of the war would be a blockade of the American coast, and that by that blockade the commerce of Lyons and Bordeaux would be cut oft' from its best market, we can easily see that France is desirous that matters may not be pressed to an extremity. Indeed, however injurious an American war might be to our great commercial cities, the evil would be nearly as fatal to the great exporting ports of France, and, for that reason, we can rely on the best offices of the French government, in case cither America or Great Britain ...

THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 18, 1841. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 18 August 1841

WEDNESDAt, AUGUST 18, 1 841 . The experiments with the poisonous plant tried on Friday last by the committee of the Agricultural Society, were, as far as they went, conclusive ; whatever uncertainty may prevail as to the manner in which the poison works, there is no longer room for doubt that it is a poison, and one of a very virulent nature* It is singular that this plant should differ so materially from the others of its tribe, but the fact unfortunately is not to be disputed, and only shows that the opinions of botanists are no more infallible than those of other people. The experiments made before the Society on Friday last were intended only to show the dead ly effects of the poison ; hut few remedies were applied, and these only at a time when it was evident that all remedy was hopeless. The com mittee have since directed their attention to the means of cure, and, as a first stop, different emetics have been administered to six sheep and goats, for the purpose of clearly ascer...

CIVIL COURT. PERTH, AUGUST 10, 1841. Macdonald v. Waylen. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 18 August 1841

CIVIL COURT. PERTH, AUGUST 10, 1841. MacdonaM v. Waylen. This was an action to recover the amount of certain promissory notes given in payment of a flock of sheep purchased of plaintiff by the de- fendant. The defendant admitted the making of the notes, but resisted the payment, on the ground of a fraudulent breach of warrants, which was the defence maintained to the action. Mr. Lawson, who appeared for the plaintiff, stated the case to the jury, and argued that al- though it appeared on the face of the agreement between the parties that the sheep were to be of the ages specified, it was not to be taken as a warranty, but as a mere general description in- serted for the convenience of the defendant ; and further that the sheep in question did in fact answer the description given of them, or as nearly thereto as it was possible, and were fairly worth the sum agreed to be paid. For the defence, it was shown that the defend- ant had bought the sheep relying solely on plaintiff's repres...

MEMOIR OF SIR ASTLEY COOPER. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 18 August 1841

MEMOIR OF SIR ASTLEY COOPER. Sir Astley Cooper was the youngest son of the late Rev. S. Cooper and Maria Susanna, daugh   ter of Mr. J. Bransby, of Shottisham, in the county of Norfolk. His mother was well known as the authoress of a novel entitled the " Exem plary Mother.' Sir Astley was born at Brooke, in the county of Norfolk, August 23, 1708. At this place he remained until the age of 14, when his father removed to Yarmouth. He acquired a   knowledge of reading and writing at the village     school, kept by Robert Larke, and he was subse quently instructed in the higher branches of education by his father, assisted by the Rev. J. Harrison, a gentleman of distinguished classical   attainments. A remarkable anecdote is recorded of him, which, fortunately for science and man kind, led the way to the general extension of that skill and ability 'which has so largely benefited both. A boy was thrown from a cart in young ...
