CONSUMPTION OF SUGAR IN FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 11 June 1835

CONSUMPTION OF SUGAR IN FRANCE. IN The Journal of Transactions, published by the French Society of Universal Statistics, we find the .:following extract fiom a discourse read by the Secretary General to the Society in the. last general meeting :- . , .. :L;We.- have been: furnished by M. Cesar Moreau with statistical , researches on the consumption of isugar:;in .France, by" which -it appears' that under .Henry IV. sugar was so :scarce' in that country, that: it was:sold by the ounce in 'apothlecaries' shops, in the same manner as bark is at present. In 1700 thi ,total consumption in France did not exceed 893 tons; `the, relish for this article increased to such a degree in the '.eighteenth century, that in 1789, the con sumption was 20,539 tons. The revolutionary wars, and the exorbitant duties laid by Napoleon on foreign sugars, reduced the consumption in 1812, for the whole of the French empire, which consisted at that time of 44,000,000 inhabitants, to 6251 tons. After the peace...

BONES OF ELEPHANTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 11 June 1835

BONES OF ELEPHANTS.. ACCORDING to M. Morren (a notice of whose memoir on the subject will be found in the columns of L'Institut), neither of the two mo nographs published on the province of Luxem bourgh mention the discovery of the bones of elephants in that province. M. Cauchy makes .. a similar omission with respect to. the province of Namur. In thb province of Liege, the bones, with the exception of those found at Cheratte, and in the neighbourhood of Cheude, are only met with in certain caverns, and very rarely. In' Hainault these remains become more common. Tlie'more numerous and richest discoveries have beeir.nmade in the provinces of B'abant, Antwerp, andithe two Flanders.

Original Correspondence. HOLY WATER. TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIST. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 11 June 1835

Origtital tortWpona enct . HOLY -WATER. .TO THE •EDITOR OF THE? COLONIST. OF .iall the absurdities which the `Church of Rome maintains, none is-more ancient than the use of Holy Water. So ancient, indeed, is the custom, that it existed. for centuries antecedent to Christianity. Long ere the glad tidings of salvation by Christ were proclaimed to a ruined world,.the consecrated water was sprinkled on the devotees of superstition. Four centuries before the'Christian era, Sophocles ((Edip. Tyr., act ii. sce 1.) alludes to the custom; and as a mark of guilt and infamy, (Edipus, is made to prohibit the use of it to the murderers of Laius. When the' remains of the deceased were laid in the tomb, those present were three times sprinkled by a priest with holy . water from a, :branch of olive or laurel to purify them. (Virg. ]Eneid, vi. 239). Plutarch (in Sylla) says: " That Gafiline killed one Marcus Marius, who was of the opposite faction, and brought'rhis head to Sylla, as he sat upon his ...
