SUMMARY OF BRITISH POLITICS. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 9 July 1835

SUMMARY OF BRITISH- POLITICS. By the arrival of. the Marquis of Huntley, which sailed from the Downs on the 27th of March last, and arrived here on the 5th instant,. after an uncommonly quick passage of ninety nine days, we have received intelligence from the mother-country to a comparatively late date., The, second. Reformed Parliament met on the 24th February, and, strange to relate, the very first of its acts was to chaunt a regular Whig elegy, with numerous Radical accompaniments, over the death and burial of its predecessor 1 We were really in hopes that the weapon of a Re. formed Parliament, which the Whigs had manu factured, but which, we must acknowledge; theyr were not particularly dexterous in tl)e use of, would be managed to somewhat better effect by. the Tories; accustomed as the latter have almost exclusively been from time immemorial, to. ;the manual exercise, although with a somewhat dif f.rent species of offensive and defensive armour: And assured, as we felt, of the...

LOSS OF THE FEMALE CONVICT SHIP NEVA. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 9 July 1835

LOSS OF THE FEMALE CONVICT SHIP NEVA. WE have this day the melancholy task of relating the total loss of another prison-ship on her way to these colonies. The tidings of this dreadful disaster reached Sydney by the Dublin Packet, from Launceston, on Monday last; and the only particulars that have yet been reported in Syd- ney, are, that the Neva, with female prisoners, bound for this port, ran aground and was lost on King's Island at the entrance of Bass' Straits during the night, and that of three hundred and fifty persons on board only fifteen reached the land. Fourteen of the survivors, the captain, the first officer, five women and seven sailors, had reached Launceston previous to the sailing of the Dublin Packet. Another woman having been acci- dentally left on the island, a small vessel had been despatched from Launceston to bring her off.               Captain Farmer, and Lieut. J. Camp...
