FOREIGN NEWS. SWITZERLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 8 August 1845
FOREIGN NEWS. SWITZEELAND. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; In the second edition of last week's Atlas, the fact that disturbances had actually broken out in Switzerland was stated. It is not easy to follow the accounts received ; but so far as we can understand them the occurrences may be narrated thus :—The party of volunteers, about 1,800 strong, &nbsp; which had been formed at Zofingen, in the canton of Argau, invaded the territory of Lucerne from the north on the 31st ult., and was allowed to reach the village of Ettiswyl without opposition. A junction was there effected with a free corps from the canton of Berne, which reckoned 3,000 men ; and these bodies agreed to march upon Lucerne, one on each side of the River Emmen, in two separate columns, which were to reunite before the city. The right column, therefore, crossed that stream by the bridge at Werthenstein, but it failed in its movement, and was defeated near Sursee ; the...

ENGLISH. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; CAPTURE or A SLAVER.—At daylight on the morning of the 5th January, while cruising off Cape Lopoz, the Espoir descried a suspicious looking craft from the mast head, when, there being very little wind, the gig and cutter were ordered out to give chase, and about noon they returned with a very fine schooner, about 100 tons, called the Carem. She had forty-one leagers of water, a full cargo of rice, farina, &c., and her slave-deck was laid. The schooner was sent to St. Helena, where she was con- demned. The Espoir was at St. Helena on the 27th January, all well, except a black man, ill with chronic complaint : She would shortly proceed to Ascension to refit. THE NEW BISHOP OF ELY.—Dr. Turton highly distinguished himself in his academi- cal career. He was originally a member of Queen's College, at which he kept nine terms : he then migrated to St. Catharine's Hall. In 1805 he was ...

ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 8 August 1845
ENGLISH NEWS. &nbsp; [After the delivery of our last paper &nbsp; in town we were enabled to add for our &nbsp; country readers a great part of the sub- &nbsp; joined English intelligence, which wc now republish for our town subscribers.] By the Renown, which has arrived at Laun- ceston, we have this morning received London papers to the 15th of April, from which we extract the most important items of intelligence— The political agitation in Switzerland had, on the 2nd of April, issued in on insurrec- tionary movement, which was ultimately put down, but in which some hundred lives had been lost, and about two thousand prisoners taken. Lord John Russell, on the 4th of April, introduced that passage in the speech of the new President of the Uunited States of America, in which he asserted that the title of the United States to the Oregon territory was unquestionable, and that he was deter- &nbsp; mined to maintain it. The noble Lord &nbsp...
STATE OF TRADE. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 8 August 1845
STATE OF TRADE. BRADFORD.—In the wool market there are rather more lookers on, and the stocks in the customers' hands very low ; and as there is but little coming to hand, it gives a degree of steadi- ness, and confirms the opinion that no reduction will be submitted to till a supply of new wool comes to the market. The raw material for yarn continuing so stiff in price, causes the spinners' prospects to be cheerless, as it is evident no relief can be had, except by advanced prices on yarns, &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; and at late prices the demand is not very animated. There is a fair average of merchants in the piece market to-day, and the business done is fully equal to several weeks past. Prices are still very low. HALIFAX.—There is little or no alteration from our report of last week. In wool there is a slight increase of business, especially for combing sorts. The demand for hogs is good. LEKDS.—The business done in our cloth halls &nbsp; on Saturday a...
IRELAND AND SYDNEY SMITH. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 8 August 1845
IRELAND AND SYDNEY SMITH. A fragment of an intended publication by Sydney Smith on Ireland has been published by his Executors. The Spectator gives some passages from it which are well worthy of perusal. " England should cast of its connexion with the Irish Church " is one of the positions affirmed by the deceased pre- bend. We give some of his thoughts— " Sir Robert Peel did well in fighting it out with O'Connell. He was too late ; but when he begun he did it boldly and sensibly ; and I, for one, am heartily glad O'Connell has been found guilty and imprisoned. He was either in earnest about Re- peal or he was not. If he was in earnest, I en- tirely agree with Lord Grey and Lord Spencer, that civil war is preferable to Repeal. Much as I hate wounds, dangers, privations, and explosions —much as I love regular hours of dinner-foolish as I think men covered with the feathers of the male pullus domesticas, and covered with lace in the course of the ischiatic nerve—much as I detest all t...
PEEL AND THE ULTRAS. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 8 August 1845
PEEL, AND THE ULTRAS, &nbsp; I have some belief in Sir Robert. He is a man &nbsp; of great understanding, and must see that this eternal O'Conneling will never do—that it is im- possible it can last. We are in a transition state, and the Tories may he assured that the Baronet will not go too fast. If Peel tells them that the thing must be done, they may be sure it is high time to do it : they may retreat mournfully and sullenly before common justice and common sense, but retreat they must when Tamworth gives the word,—and in quick step too, and without loss of &nbsp; time. &nbsp; And let me beg of my dear Ultras not to imagine &nbsp; that they survive for a single instant without Sir Robert—that they could form an Ultra-Tory Ad- &nbsp; ministration. Is there a Chartist in Great Britain who would not, upon the first intimation of such an attempt, order a new suit of clothes, and call upon the baker and milkman for an extended credit ? I...
MRS. CAUDLE'S CURTAIN LECTURES. ON MR. CAUDLE'S SHIRT-BUTTONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 8 August 1845
MRS. CAUDLE'S CURTAIN LECTURES. ON MR. CAUDLE'S SHIRT-BUTTONS. " There, Mr. Caudle, I hope you're in a little better temper than you were this morn- ing ? There—you needn't begin to whistle ; people don't come to bed to whistle. But it's like you. I can't speak, that you don't &nbsp; try to insult me. Once I used to say, you &nbsp; were the best creature living : now you get quite a fiend. Do let you rest ? No, I won't let you rest. It's the only time I have to talk to you, and you shall hear me. I'm put out all day long ; it's very hard if I can't speak a word at night ; and it isn't often I open my mouth, goodness knows ; " Because once in your lifetime your shirt wanted a button, you must almost swear the roof off the house ! You didn't swear? Ha, Mr. Caudle, you don't know what you do when you're in a passion. You were not in a passion, weren't you. Well then, I ought know what a passion is, and I think I ought by this time. I've lived long enough with you. Mr. C...
SWISS TROUBLES. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 8 August 1845
SWISS TROUBLES. Bad as affairs are in Switzerland, there is some satisfaction in knowing that the con- stituted authorities of Lucerne have been able to suppress and punish the outrages of the free corps so far as they have yet gone. Had the insurgents been successful in their assault on Lucerne, the free corps would, in all probability, have been emboldened to make further attempts in other Conservative cantons ; and their general success would inevitably have produced the intervention of some of the Great Powers. Now the very worst thing that could befal Switzerland is intervention, either diplomatic or military. A minor State dragged into the maelstrom of the great Powers' diplomacy, rarely escapes from the whirlpool as whole as when it was forced in ; and once accustom Europe to military intervention in Swiss troubles, and the neutrality of Switzerland—so indis- pensable to the balance of power—rests on a sandy foundation. That neutrality is a bar- rier placed by the policy of E...
Miscella[?]a. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 8 August 1845
Miscellanea. The Morning Post states that, if possible, the Royal visit to Ireland will be paid early in July, and that Parliament will rise earlier than usual to enable Ministers to attend her Majesty. The Montreal Gazette declares, in the most emphatic terms, that the English ru- mour of " Lord Metcalfe's retirement from the government of Canada " is entirely with- out foundation. The Gazette adds, that there is no apprehension of the state of his health speedily creating any necessity for his doing so." The Court of Common Council havo re- solved that the non-invitation of the Lord Mayor to Christ's Hospital on the occasion of the Queen's recent visit, and the hospital authorities taking precedence of his lordship, who is at the head of all city hospitals, was an invasion of the rights and privileges of the Lord Mayor.

THE SONG OF THE BIRD IN THE GARDEN OF ARMIDA. Translated from the "Jerusalem, Delivered" of Torquato Tasso.—Canto XVI. 12. XII. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 8 August 1845
THE SONG OF THE BIRD IN THE GARDEN OP ARMIDA. Translated from the " Jerusalem, Delivered " of Torquato Tasso.—Canto XVI. 12. XII. BIRDS of fair form lurk mid the verdant brakes, Whose rival warbling, love's soft wishes allows. Each grove and stream the murmuring wind makes Eloquent ; with varying force it blows When the birds sing, scarce the still leaves it shakes, But when they cease its response louder grows : So, be it chance or art, alternate please The song of birds, and music of the breeze. XIII. With purple beak, and rainbow colours flung At random o'er his plumes, among the rest Was one pre-eminent ; his supple tongue A gift like human eloquence possessed, And with such art and copious numbers sung, That all who heard, a prodigy confessed ; The birds grew mute, and, charmed by his sweet lay, The rustling breezes ceased through heaven to play. XIV. " Ah, see," he sang, " how bursts the budding rose, When, coyly opening on its virgin stem, Each blushing tint with double lustr...
