APPLICATION OP ELECTRO- MAGNETISM TO MACHINERY. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 15 December 1841

APPLICATION OF ELECTRO-MAGNETISM TO MA CHINERY. (From the Leipsic Algemeine Ztitung.) Leipsic, April 17.— The meeting of our Polytechnic Society was rendered peculiarly interesting by a lecture given by Herr Storer on his experiments in the application of electro-magnetism as a motive power. Uerr Storer commenced his experiments several years ago, before Wagner's invention, and has proceeded independent of it. By merely following up and carrying out the ideas of Jaco bi, to whom the flret merit of the discovery is due, he has succeeded in constructing a small machine, the power of whieh is as yet limited to the raising of only a moderate weight and putting a turning lathe in motion, but which i6 nevertheless sufficient to render perfectly evident the whole mechanism of the important invention, and which, as the constructor observed, needs only to be enlarged to produce more practical effects. The principle of electro-galvanic movementhasilssource, as is well known, in the law of rec...

MISCELLANEOUS. STRAWBERRY HILL. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 15 December 1841

MISCELLANEOUS. STRAWBERRY HILL. This far famed residence, which has been ren dered classical by the naine of Horace Walpole, has lately been brought to the hammer by that Prince of Auctioneers George Robins. The puffo-auctioneering wit and eloquence of this cel ebrated official has become proverbial, and on this occasion, affording sueh ample scope for dis play, he has even outdone himself. The follow ing is a curious specimen of his powers, and is interesting as being an account of a place that will long be memorable as the favoured resort of wit and learning. ' Strawberry-hill, the renowned seat in Olden Times of Horace Walpole, afterwards the Earl of Orford, with the magnificent, costly, and classical contents, including everything that claims to be rare and unique in the Fine Arts.

THE STARS OF PALL MALL IN 1784. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 15 December 1841

THE STARS OF PALL MALL IN 1784. (From Fraser's Magazine.) There have been several epochs in the domestic history of Carlton House ; and certainly one of the first was the pe riod when the prince became intimate with the Barryraores, Sir John Lade, Captain Morris, Colonel Hanger, and a few others of that btamp, convives of his early career. Nothing could exceed the immoral, the licentious conduct of his table at this period, which was most gorgeously supplied and most wantonly abused. The orgies ot night, in such company as there assembled, Bhould never be re corded ; for the entire annals of the house for several years would be a never-ceasing history of' ribald conversation, drunkenness, and debauchery. About the year 1784, in the zenith of that coterie which assembled in Carlton House, was the period when the Du ohess of Devonshire graced the table there, and several ladies eminent for grace, wit, and every female charm. These meetings were enlivened by such men as Charles James F...

THE INQUIRER WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 15, 1841. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 15 December 1841

WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 16, 1841. A number of papers have been put into our hands by Mr. J.

A short time back Mr. Stokes forwarded a petition to the Governor in Executive Council, stating at length the circumstances of his case, and praying for compensation for the loss he had sustained by the interference of the legislature with a branch of trade, the legality of which up to that moment had been as much recognised as any other, or at least that the local government would recommend hi...

THE INQUIRER WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 22, 1841. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 22 December 1841

WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER, 22 1841. H.M.S. Beagle returned on Sunday last from her expedition in. search of Port Grey, without having found fcny such place, or observed any of the numerous advantages described by Captain. Grey in his explorations in that quarter. The object of the Beagle's trip to the North was to ascertain beyond a doubt the existence or nonex istence of such a valuable port as Port Grey has been described to be, especially as it is laid down eo immediately in the neighbourhood if that por tion of the coast previously; examined by Captain King. The settlement of this question was im portant to geographical science, as, 'while it remained undecided, the survey of our coast could hardly be said to be complete, and the in formation now obtained is a worthy addition to the labours of the Beagle on the Australian shore. The matter is now placed beyond a doubt — there is positively no such place as Port Grey in or near the spot assigned, as will be seen from the report of the ...

TRANSPORTATION VERSUS THE HULKS. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 22 December 1841

TRANSPORTATION VERSUS THE HULKS. As the Hulk and transportation system have recently oc cupied a considerable share of Parliamentary attention, the writer may be pardoned a few words, and a few practical suggestions upon the subjects — starting with tlte basts «f punishment being devised for the weal of society, and re formation, not vengeance, upon the offender; the question is, how that great aim is most beneficially, most econorn - ically, and most surely to be compassed ? Assuredly, model prisons will neither be the most beneficial, the most eco nomical, nor in. the opinion ot.mauy (qualified to express opinion) will they .prove the roort surey-unlew the destruc tion of life, health, or sanity of their victims, be deemed security. Transportation, wisely worked, is the most effect ual nude Of beneficially, economically, and surely serving both the state, and the offender ; and England possesses, nay is about to found a-settlement upon a cluster of islands, seemingly designed by n...

EXPEDITION OF THE BEAGLE TO PORT GREY. We have been favoured with the following letter from Captain Stokes of H. M. S. Beagle to the Hon. J.

At noon Cape Leschenault bore N.E. by E. 8 or 9 miles. Soon afterwards we noticed a break in the land bearing north-east, probably the Moore River; this, as we came abreast of it, appeare...
