THE DESTRUCTION OF ASTLEY'S THEATRE. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 20 October 1841

THE DESTRUCTION OF ASTLEY'S THEATRE. The late papers contain an account of the destruction of Astley's Theatre by fire ; the following are some of the particulars as given in the Chronicle. The fire was discovered at half-past three oclock by po lice constable Duke 108 L, who alarmed the hall porter. Mr. and Madame Ducrow, with their two children, he Petit Ducrow, and thejuvenile company, who resided with him in the bouse attached to the Ampitheatre in the Westminster-road, with the four servants, ruthed into the street in their night dresses. Elizabeth Bitten, the house maid, an old servant, was the first who escaped. After gaining the street, 6he remembered that her savings bank book, containing the amount of her earnings, with some birds that were especial favourites of Madame Ducrow, were left behind, and returned into the house, heedless of the remonstrances of that ludy, and perished in the flames. Mr. Ducrow and the whole of his family took refuge in the residence of Signior ...

THE INQUIRE WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 20, 1641. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 20 October 1841

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 20, 1641. We last week recounted how her Majesty's ministers at home had been left in a minority on Sir R. Peel's motion for a vote of want of confi dence ; and that Lord John Russell had promised to inform the house, on the following evening, what would be the course adopted by the ministry in consequence. By the arrival of the Ganges we are now in possession of the promised explana tion; the ministers did not resign, but an imme diate dissolution of the house was resorted to. Lord John Russell Organ his exposition by stating that the government measure as to the corn-laws would be withdrawn, and entered upon a long history of what he intended lo say when this measure should have been brought forward. He also defended himself and his colleagues against various charges that had been made against them, especially as to having two budgets, one for fair weather, and the other for foul, which he denied, and came at last to the most im portant point, viz., what they in...

JOURNAL OF A SECOND EXPEDITION TO THE WESTWARD OF KING GEORGE'S SOUND AS FAR AS POINT ENTRECASTEAUX, IN THE MONTHS OF APRIL, MAY, AND JUNE, 1841; BY WILLIAM NAIRNE CLARK. [Concluded from No. 62.] [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 20 October 1841

JOURNAL OF A SECOND EXPEDITION TO THE WESTWARD OF KING GEORGE'S SOUND AS FAR AS POINT ENTRECASTEAUX, IN THE MONTHS OF APRIL, MAY, AND JUNE, 1841 ; BY WILLIAM NAIRNE CLARK. [Concluded from No. 62.] June 1st. We passed over extensive flats on the borders of the inland water of the richest soil and pasturage, backed by hills covered with tender grass, and encamped for the night on the boarders of a large flat of several hundred acres, connecting itself with another of as many thou- sands, of the richest black soil we ever saw, with sheep hills closing the scenery. The grass in this flat was nearly a foot high — a close, luxuriant, and green sward, and there were neither stumps nor shrubs to interrupt the progress of the scythe. Travellers have a license to talk of scenery, but this surpassed any I had hitherto seen, with the splendid expanse of waters stretched out before us. June the 2d. — Rainy night and morning.   Started along the south-west side of the inlet, &amp...

TRAPPISTS OF MONT MELLERIE. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 27 October 1841

TRAPFISTS OP MONT MELLERIE. During her Irish tour, Lady Chatterton visited the Trappi»ts ; and she gives a curious account of that extra ordinary sect. The first qualification for a monk of an austere order would seem to be a vigorous constitution ; the next, what is called a ' touch*' iu the head, either from remorse or some morbidness of temperament aggravated by circumstances. The material results of this self-denying and silent system, however, are very great : but we must .remember that .these Irish Trappier are new arrivals. The crops, enclosures, atiicf planting of this extraordinary establishment are truly wonderful, when we consider that seven years ago it was a wild mouutain. Qur wonder in creased when we approached the buildings. They arc of great extent, and though not finished, are advancing rapidly towards completion. We were told that the change of habits in the population of this mountain district since the establishment of the Trappists is very remarkable. It was a ...

The Velocity, which arrived at this port on Friday last, made the passage out from Plymouth in 90 days, which is, we believe, the quickest passage on record.

Mr. Boyd himself is already on his way for these seas, but we learn that it is doubtful whether he will touch at this port.

MISCELLANEOUS. HAMMERSLEY'S BANK. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 27 October 1841

MISCELLANEOUS. HAMMERSLEY'S BANK. The folio wing account of Messrs. Hammer6ley and their bank (Pall Mali, London), which lately stopped payment, is given in the Circular to Bankers. The manner in which , Mr. T. Hammersley is described to have been led on from one speculation to another — the net? scheme always to re deem the loss from that which preceeded it, but always making masters worse — gives a startling insight into the higher walks of business in Englaud. ' Some fifty or sixty years ago, the old and eminent banking-house ,of Herries and Co. was the only firm in England which had adopted the practice of issuing (.notes payable on presentation, or at a few days' sight, at various large towns throughout the continent of Europe : it was a circulation of the greatest possible convenience, eal'ety, and utility to travellers and temporary residents in foreign countries, and it was very properly, and with much fore sight os to the consequence?, so arranged by the introduc ers of the...

' There caw scarce be a greater contrast thuu the state banquets given in the Picture Gallery at Buckingham Palace and those that were given by George IV. and Wil liam IV. in the banqueting room in St. James's, consider ing that the same, materials are employed : for though it must be confessed from the vostness and grandeur of pro portion of the banqueting- room, a certain degree of mag nificence was obtained, yet from its peculiar and beautiful roof, the style of its decoration, and, more than all the pic U-rlal treasures that adorn its walls, th re is a degree of elo^ance about the picture-gallery, when, fitted up tor n state banquet, that renders it one of the most beautiful -sights that can well be witnessed.— On this occasion, the table was magnificently ornamented with silver gilt plate, consisting of a, plateat), with epergnes; candelabra, wine coolers of {the most exquisite designs and finished work manship, and of great variety. .

VARIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 27 October 1841

VARIETIES. Progress of Modern Travelling. - Our fathers were— and that within the memory of men— contented to convey their goods from towu to town on pack-horses. Narrow roads, which barely ad- mitted a string of these beasts, burdened with the needs of many towns, ran on over hill and dale, and often were-found worn deep be- tween steep banks, by the persevering traffic of ages, and overhung by trees which had spontaneously sprung and grown over them, ren- dering them cool and pleasant. But the affairs of our worthy, ances- tors became sensibly on the increase. The string of pack-horses slowly progressing over the wolds and through forests, were found not equal to the demands of commercial exchange and speed; and they set their wits to work, and lo! Pickford's and Pettifor's waggons, and others, their contemporaries, appeared, piled up in ponderous stateli- ness, and drawn by horses in bulk next to elephants. For their con- venience, the old roads were deserted as too narrow, or fi...
