MESMERISM IN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 14 August 1845

MESMERISM IN AUSTRALIA. (Promn the Lolidon Atlas.) Lately, I was passing a day in Forfarshire with the venerable astro nomer, Dr. Dick, where I met with Mlr. Ducker, of Dover-a highly intel ligent gentleman, who had spent some time among the aboriginesof Australia; and he told me that on one occasion he went out among them to see what hlie then considered to be a piece of idle m!mmery, but what he is now convinced was a valuable process, analogous to, if not identical with, that of mesmerism. It was for curing a female of some internal disor dei and was performed in the gloom of night. A fire was kindled on the open plain, and most of the members of the tribe joined a bout in a circle and danced, whilst the patient was set apart at some distance, and the doctor or priest began his curative ceremony, which under the circumstances, seemed odd and mystical enough, This consisted of his rapidly moving far away until hidden by the darkness, and then turning back to where the patient stoo...

SMOKING IN CONSTANTINOPLE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 14 August 1845

..ssoKINo IN' CONSTANTINOPLE. The risk of arising from several hundred thousand lighted pipes or pieces of charcoal and tinder, burning in every direction throughout a woodbuilt city, is sufficient to justify the attempts made by divers Sultans to abolish smoking, But no sovereign waged war upon pipes and their attendant coffee more inveterately than Murad IV. If delin quents, hieh or low, were caught in the aot of smoking, their heads inevitably paid forfeit. Murad often went forth tehdil (disgnised), on purpose to watch ifthe police did its duty, or to see if he could fall in with individuals hold enough to infringe his edicts. On one of these occasions he is said to have met wisll an adventure calculated to di minish his passion for these experiments. Having disguised himself as a simple citizen, he passed over to Scutari in a common kayik, and prowled around the caravensaries, where stangers arrive .from the interior. Not having dis covered a single defaulter, he took his place,...

MISCELLANEA. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 14 August 1845

SMISCELLANEA. At Leith, in the neighbourhood of $dinburgh, at Aberdeen, and Bor deaux, Marniseilles, and in many parts ofGermany, establishments of enor mous magnitude exist, in which soup, vegetables, annmal :substances, and riands of every description, are pre pared and sent to the greatest dis tances. Thle prepared aliments are enclosed in cannisters of tinned iron plate, the covers are soldered air tight, and the cannisters exposed to the temperature of boiling water. When this degree of heat has pene trated to the centre of the contents, which it requires about thlree or four hours to accomplipsh, the aliments have accquired a stability which, one may almost say, is eternal. When the cannister is opened, after a lapse ol several years, the contents appear just as if they were only recently enclosed. Thecolour, taste, and smell of the meat are completely unaltered. This valuable metlhod of preparing food has been adopted by many persons in my neighbourhood andti other parts of G...

EXPENSE OF COLONIES. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 14 August 1845

EXPENSE OF COLONIES: (From the Colonial Gazette, February 52.) Sir Robert'Peel, in his otherwise unexceptionable financial statement, lent countenance to the vulgar er ror that colonies are a source of great expenise to the nation. And, what was worse, the'only iiem which Sir Robert admitted as a set off to their cost was the national honour and gl6ry: John Bull, luckily Lor. him, prefk'e solid pud ding to emty praise; and were the colonies no betier than a feather in his cap, purchased by a great an nual expenditure, he would soon throw them over board. It is there. fore high time, when we find a statesman-of Sir Robert's calibre announcing with axiomatic dogmat ism that the colonies are the great cause of our expensive military and naval establishments, to expose the erroneousness of this opinion. The colonies are, on the contra ry, a means of saving : they are an economical means of protecting our trade. We have, according to Sir Ro bert, 45 colonies; and the neces sity of protec...

NEW ZEALAND. - FURTHER PAR TICULARS. (Fromn the Australinn.) ENsIGN O'Reilly was woundeid i the elbow so seveorely, that if his arm escape amputation, the power of bending it"will not return. Lieu tenint Johnson had a narrow escape. A ball struck the edge of the peak.pf his capi, and glancing aside did him no harm. Major Macpherson was shliot in the fleshy part of the thigh; a" painful, but not dangerous wound. 'rThe gallant Grant(Capt. Grenadiers) had expressed a presentiment that hlie should not return alive. It did not, however, unnorve hii arm, for just previously to his being shot, hlie had with his sword struck off the head of a New Zealandei, in forcing his way through the palisade. His remains were found mutilated, biit had not, as reported, been exposed in any way to the action of fire. Poor Beattie died on the toenth (lay after the battle.

THE COMIC BLACKSTONE. CHAPTER THE SIXTEENTH. — OF TITLE BY ALIENATION. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 14 August 1845

TIHE COMIC BLACKSTONE, CHAPTER TIE SIXTEENTH.-OF TITLE DY ALIENATION. ALIENATION Is tho transfer of pro perty from one to another, a process in which the law delights; "'For it is hard," says Coke, C'ir the lawyers do not get a chance of catching the oyster while.it is being passed away from one shell to the other." Traitors and felons cannot convey their lands; and if it is felony to imis tate the signature of A Rowland andt Son, it would seem that the dealers in spurious Macnssar cannot aliene their property, A felon may, however, pur chase anything he pleases, because 'ceo qi'il achetern la couronne grabbcra' (that which he shall purchase the crown will grab, or, lay its hands upon). Infants and idiots may enter into agreements, which are not binding un. less confirmed when the inlancy or id iocy has ceaseld; but it has been said that a non-compos cannot plead his own non-composity, because if he rnrldl, the knave might often play the fool, and write himself down an ass for the s...
