THE OBSERVER. HOBART TOWN, THURSDAY, JUNE 12. AMERICA.—IMPORTANT! [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 12 June 1845
THE OBSERVER. HOBART TOWN, THURSDAY, JUNE 12. AMERICA.—IMPORTANT ! THE ship Eliza Ann nrrivcd during tho night of the 11th instant, from New York, which she left on the 21th of February. She brings the important news that the Bill for the annexation of Texas to the United States passed the House of Repre- sentatives and the Senate, (the latter by a majority of two only), and it only requires the consent of the President, whose opinion is favourable to the measure. The majority of the people of the States is in favor of the annexation of Texas ; but not so the ma- jority of the better classes. Dy the kindness of the American Consul we are in possession of the latest papers, from which we shall give particulars in our next.
ENGLISH POLITICS. MINISTERIAL PROSPECTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 12 June 1845
ENGLISH POLITICS. MINISTERIAL PROSPECTS. OUR late English papers do not furnish any ground for immediate expectation of a change of Ministry. By the succession of Mr. Gladstone Sir Robert Peel's Government loses its sure hold upon the services of a rising member of the legislature ; one possessed of superior abilities, distinguished as a debater, and for whom general respect is entertained by all parties in the House of Commons. But the extreme views of the late President of the Board of Trade on all questions affecting the Church and its rela- tions to the State are sympathised in by too small a number to inspire any expecta- tion that they will rally from the Con- servative quarter an opposition sufficiently strong to effect Sir Robert Peel's ex- pulsion from office. And Mr. Gladstone himself, in his explanation to the House of the ground of his retirement from the Ministry, so expressed himself in favour of the commercial and general policy of the Government, as to restrict himse...
EXCESS OF LABOUR. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 12 June 1845
EXCESS OF LABOUR. WHILE there exists an apprehension here that the Colony is exposed to evils of a serious characeter from the great amount of labour in it, for which there is no adequate demand on the part of the settlers, and while the Local Government is doing the best it can to diminish this evil, so far as the limited discretion with which it is entrusted by the Colonial Office will allow, it is satisfactory to find that the progress of the neighbouring settlement of Port Phillip is such as to be likely to relieve us, at least to some trifling extent. By our private letters we learn that, between this and shearing time, the district of Geelong will require five hundred men. The Government will, no doubt, satisfy itself of this fact before facilitating further shipments from the Colony of men partially freed ; but having informed itself, will then take advantage of the circumstance. As to that objection which has been urged by some against the expediency of the " Australian pard...

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 12 June 1845
LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. &nbsp; &nbsp; ATTEMPTED ROBBERY.—Between the &nbsp; &nbsp; hours of seven and eight o'clock on the - evening of Thursday, an entrance was ef- fected into the office of the Post Office De- partment : but fortunately the anticipations &nbsp; &nbsp; of plunder were frustrated, the amount ob- tained being only three pieces, value 3d. each. The desk in the office was parted by means of a crow bar, which is now in the possession of Constable Goldsmith, and as Mr. D. C. Syminonds is also on the alert, we trust some clue will be gained to the per- petrators of this daring act. STOCK.—The sale of stock belonging to the estate of Mr. Luckman, on Monday &nbsp; last brought very good prices ; working bul- locks from £6 6s. to £11 per pair ; horses £5 to £8 15s. each ; sheep 6s. 6d.; wheat, barley, &c. fair prices. CURIOUS CIRCUMSTANCE.—On Sunday last a great number of salmon, barracuta, perch, &c., were ...
SPIRIT OF THE ENGLISH PRESS. MR. W. E. GLADSTONE. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 12 June 1845
SPIRIT OF THE ENGLISH PRESS. MR. W. E. GLADSTONE. THE secession of Mr. Gladstone from an ad- ministration of which he was by far the most rising member, is, be the causo what it may, not merely a loss to the Cabinet, but to the country. It is not because Mr. Gladstone is an able and eloquent debater—a laborious and successful administrator—a liberal and sagacious statesman—a profound and ac- complished scholar—an amiable and honour- able colleague, that his loss will be chiefly felt ; it is because he is as pre-eminent for moral and religious as for intellectual and popular qualifications ; it is because he is deeply conscientious, unaffectedly pious, and thoroughly honest and truthful ; because, in short, he is nearly all a Christian Statesman ought to be, that his secession is irrepara- ble. Mr. Gladstone may have left more brilliant men behind him ; and his suecesor, Lord Dalhousie, may turn out as competent a President of the Board of Trade ; but his loss is not one whit the les...
MISCELLANEA. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 12 June 1845
MISCELLANEA. HONOURS PAID TO THE LATE THOMAS CAMPBELL AT HIS FUNERAL.—He (the poet) was well repaid—Peel had a string of the pall ; Brougham came and said, " How confounded cold the Abbey is ;" the Duke of Argyle, Scotchman-like, rubbed his back against Roubilliac's statue of his great an- cestor, and thought it was a pity he hadn't migrated to Prince Edward's Island; D'Is- raeli said he was one of the " Curiosities of Literature ;" while Macaulay, who looks for smart things, said, " Poor fellow, this &nbsp; was always the object of his ambition—it was his ' hope beyond the grave.' ". . . Let some old general or admiral do some- thing or another that only requires the cou- rage of a bull, and no sense, and they give him a pension, and right off the reel make him a peer. Let some old field officer's wife go follerin' the army away back to Indgy. further than is safe or right for a woman to go, git taken pris'ner, give a hor- rid sight of trouble to the army to git her back ; ...
FASHIONS FOR FEBRUARY. (From the London and Paris Ladies' Magasine of Fashion.) [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 12 June 1845
FASHIONS FOR FEBRUARY. (From the London and Paris Ladies' Magazine of Fashion.) Whilst pompadour velvoute, pekin satins, and all rich materials in beautiful and lively colours are among the splendid novelties of the season, all lighter materials are pre- ferred for ball dresses ; crapes, ombres and embroidered, and other silk materials, as well as organdy, are worn. Yellow is a very fashionable colour for crapes. Double and tripple skirts are very general ; and the montants, which are the trimmings placed on the skirt, are very fashionable ; beautiful wreath have been made for this style of feuillage, sparkling with emaux. having the appearance of precious stones falling on the leaves. For carriage and visiting dresses, velvet and satin damas divide favour, in all the varied forms of pelisses, pardessus, robes redingotes, &c., they are trimmed with black lace gimp, in torsades, in chenille, mixed with bugles, &c. ; some are with high bodies and revers, others quite c...
ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. LORD JOHN RUSSELL'S SPEECH ON THE FIRST DAY OF THE SESSION. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 12 June 1845
ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. LORD JOHN RUSSELL'S SPEECH ON THE FIRST DAY OF THE SESSION. THE noble Lord commenced by expressing his satisfaction with the reply to the Queen's speech proposed by Mr. Charteris, and his concurrence in the observations which the speech had elicited. At the same time, he added, that there were topics in Her Majesty's speech which he thought called for remark. The first topic of the speech adverted to by the mover of the address was the gratifying circumstance of three foreign Sovereigns having paid visits to Her Majesty in the course of the last year. That these visits might load to more amicable relations between those powers and Great Britain must be the anxious wish and sanguine expectation of every one ; but he (Lord John Russell) did not think that that expectation could be held in so strong a manner as had been expressed, for he perceived that the Government was taking precautions for the event of war. After referring to the cloud upon the prospects of pe...

SUPREME COURT—CRIMINAL SIDE. THURSDAY, 5TH JUNE, 1845. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 12 June 1845
SUPREME COURT-CRIMINAL SIDE. THURSDAY, 5TH JUNE, 1845. Before His Honor the Chief Justice, who at 10 o'clock took his seat on the Bench. W. Hughes was charged with having on the night of the 31st March last burgla- riously broken into the dwelling-house of Edward Payne Buller, Esq., and feloniously stealing a cloth cloak, value £4. his property. The cloak, which was produced, was identified by Mr. Bulter as his properly, and Elizabeth Lock deposed as to the premises being left secure on the night of the 31st March, and an entrance having been effected during the night. The prisoner, it appeared, lodged at Mr. Hunt's, and being in want of money, offered another lodger named L. W. Miller to sell him a cloak for £1, but which cloak had been pledged at Mr. Alcock's, who, as the ticket was lost, refused to give it. A man named W. Mansell, who, it appeared, had pawned the cloak (and who has been some time in gaol.) drew out a document, by which the cloak was obtained, and Mr. Miller, on r...
MISCELLANEA. [From the Allas, Feb. 4, 1845.] [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 17 June 1845
MISCELLANEA. [From the Atlas, Feb. 4, 1845.] A letter was read from the Bishop and clergy of Kilmaeduagh, enclosing a sub- scription of £17 ; and saying—" We receive &nbsp; the Papal rescript in the spirit of submissive obedience, as ciminnting from the su- preme visible bend of our Church—the legitimate successor of St. Peter, whom we revere for his private virtues, and whom we are bound to obey in all matters regarding doctrine and discipline. But we consider the document as chiefly intended to depre- cate the use of intemperate language at pub- lic dinners or political meetings, and to inculcate the principle of conciliation and Christian charity. This is an object most desirable at all times, but particularly at the present crisis, when we want to effect a grand national co-operation of all creeds and country. Viewing it in that light, we may derive advantage from what our enemies in- tend for evil, and be grateful to his Holiness for his paternal solicitude, in thus cau...
