Whether the ambition of the Court ot SU Petersburgh be sooner or tater .destined to such rough handling as must eventually lead to a dereliction of its long cherished conquest of Turkey, is a matter of less importance than the certainty that the conquest iMU not be permitted.

Death of Sir Humphry Davy. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 30 October 1829

Death of Sir Humphry Davy. This great man bas, at length, paid the debt to nature. The account has reached us from a source which leaves no doubt as to its authenticity. It is contained in a letter fi ora Gene va, from a distinguished friend of Sii Humphry. Extract of à letter from Geneva:-"'The scientific world lins met with a great loss, in the death of the celcbiated Knghsh chemist, Sir Humphry Da-y. He an i ved here, fiom Italy,. with Lady Davy, on the 2Sih of May, exceedingly ill, and suf- fering very much, and died on the following day at 3 o'clock in the morninp, with an attack of apoplexy.

Reform of Parliament. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 30 October 1829

Reform of Parliament. The Marquis of Blandford brought forward two resolutions on the subject of Parliamentary Reform, on Tuesday night, grounded on the appiehension that the Catholic party might purchase up those rouen seats, and thereby invest themselves gradually with political power. (He was supported by the old friends to reform, hut, of course, from'very different motives. The resolutions were ultimately lost in a division. If the Marquis of Blandford'» reasoning be correct with respect to the Catholics, it must have been always true with respect to any other party to whom it migHt be applied-the Dissenters, or the Whigs, or the Radicals. If reform be a fundamental good, his Lordship is late in his conversation, and the public will be disposed to think that he advocate» it now, more to keep the Catholics out than to keep our Representation pure -Atlas.

Public Distress—Currency. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 30 October 1829

Public Distress-Currency.L On the 4th of June, during a debate in the House of Com- mons on the above topics, the following remarks fell from Mr. Huskisson : Mr. Huskisson contended that colonization ought to be en- couraged. He thought emigration with capital, advantageous to the country, but sending out paupers would be attended with more difficulty than many imagined. Adverting to the' question of tlte currency, Mr. Huskisson said, that he was glad to find that Government would not depart from that system, which» although it has led to temporary suffering and distress, would ultimately rescue the country from destruction. Let them guard against a system which had led to depreciation of the currency, and the panic felt in 1825. He had heard somewhere a metaphor respecting paper currency. Like a sky-rocket, it rote with splendour, but lost its brightness, and when its fire wat extinguished, it foti in darkness, like the shaft of tile rocket, upon the heads of those who had raised i...

Spirit of the Public Journals. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 30 October 1829

Spirit df the Public Journals., In our last, we made a few observations upon the growing Liste for literature in (bis Colony, as exemplified by our Boole Society and Library ; but wc know not, why the Parent Stock-the Public Press-should not receive that notice from üs, deservedly its due, both for having originally set the wheel in motion, and for having subsequently kept it so well supplied with patent anti-attrition, or, in other, words, good and useful matter, a* to have enabled It, effectually, to accom- plish ils object, and at the s&mo time to have given rise to the other .establishments, vying as tbey now do, with their parent, in tho smiles of its Patrons. To people, nnacqnainted with Vau Diemcn's Land, it may appear strange, that, independently of the Official Organ of Government, there are three Newspapers weekly printed in tbis town, and,one at Launceston.

Drought at the Cape. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 30 October 1829

Drought at the Cape     Extract of a letter, dated Cradock, August 10, 1829 :—" It is along time since I have given you any news from this re- mote, and nearly forgotten part of the Colony. I am sorry to say it is just as dry as when I wrote to you about a year ago ; in fact I never saw the country look so desolate ; but how can it be otherwise, for since the year 1825 or 1826, we have had no regular rains here. Many farmers (once opulent) are now labouring under the greatest distress imaginable, and no one can form an idea of the state of the country, without being an eye-witness to it; poverty is depicted in every countenance. What the result may be, we must leave to the hand of Pro- vidence. I frequently pity the poor farmers of this division— poor fellows, they have been, and are still obliged, since the year 1825, to make shift to go to Somerset, and that very often,   for the most trifling occurrence—say merely to procure a sim- ple certi...

Ireland. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 30 October 1829

Ireland The subject of poor laws occupies much of the public atten- tion. One of the greatest difficulties in Ireland will be to de- vise the proper machinery ; but it is absolutely necessary to grapple with the evil. The cries of distress from almost every part of the country are becoming 'every day more clamourous. The convict ship lying now in Kingstown, will sail, I believe, on Monday for Sydney, New South Wales. There are about 200 convicts on board, including Richard Radford Roe, Esq. an Irish Barrister, and a man of 2,000£. a-year paternal pro perly. This person is, perhaps, one of the strangest individuals   that ever appeared in this strange country. I do think his Memoirs would be as entertaining and as curious as those of   Vaux, or Vulocn,. He is transported for subornation of per- jury. But this is by no means the most remarkable passage in   his life. Mr. Therry, a son of one of the Commissioners of Irish Customs, who has lately b...

HOBART TOWN:     OCTOBER 30, 1829.     Let it be impressed upon your minds, let it be instilled into your children, that the Liberty of the Press is the Palladium of all your Civil, Political, and Religious Rights. Junius. The arrival of the Calista, from Swan River, has put us   in possession of various facts connected with that Settlement, calculated, we fear, to remove the veil that bas obscured the good sense of many of our countrymen at home, who have too hastily adopted opinions of the advantages and capabili-   ties of the place, and, rushing forwards to its shores, have entirely lost sight of that prudent discretion, which would have whispered them to look before they leapt. We say that we fear, for we are none of those who could have ever viewed   the new Colony with anything like jealousy, even if it had really been endowed with all the qualities destined to ensure its future greatness, fully equ...
