NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 15 August 1845
NEW ZEALAND. From New Zealand, intelligence had been received of further disasters to the British troops, which are detailed in the despatches of Colonel Despard, subjoined :— Colonial Secretary's Office, Auckland, 7th July, 1845. His Excellency the Governor has been pleased to direct the publication of the fol- lowing Despatches for general information. By Command, ANDREW SINCLAiR, Colonial Secretary. Camp before Heke's Pah, July 2. SIR,—It is with much more regret than I can express, that I have to acquaint your Excellency that an attempt was yesterday made by the troops under my command, in the afternoon, to carry the fortified position or pah of Heke, without suceess—and we were repulsed with heavy loss. The particu- lars shall be forwarded to you with as little delay as possible. I enclose herewith a list of killed and wounded. Many of the latter, I am sorry to say, are severe and dangerous. It is impossible to say too much in praise of the bravery and good conduct of both offi...
"THE ISLES SHALL WAIT FOR ME." [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 15 August 1845
" THE ISLES SHALL WAIT FOR ME." ISAIAH. METHINKS I witness the prophetic gaze, O'er the blue waters far and wide it strays. The isles, thick studding meet the prophet's eye, Each isle affianced to idolatry. He speaks—I tremble—Heaven's avenging rod Waits but the voice, to wreak the curse of God. But wrath is silent-heard no harsh decree : Thus saith the Lord,—" The isles shall wait for me." Angels rejoice, and strains prelusive sing, The joy foretasting that those isles shall bring. But there is one, bright sparkling on the breast. Of swelling ocean, fairer than the rest ; And isle for beauty and majestic mien, Enthron'd upon the waste as Ocean's Queen. But gain her shores ; no graceful crown she wears No moral vest, no righteous sceptre bears. The subject crouches and the despot raves ; Each fears, none loves, and all alike are slaves ; Yet, leagued in common ignorance, agree In idol-worship to subject the knee. Deceiving and deceived, the hoary priest Calls to prepare for Baalim t...
SYDNEY INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 15 August 1845
SYDNEY INTELLIGENCE. By the Louisa we have Sydney papers to the 2nd August. The Governor opened the Legislative Council on the 29th July, in a speech conciliating in its tone, and satis factory in its substance, which is subjoined. The reply was a mere echo of the speech, excessing gratification at what was gratify- &nbsp; ing in it, concurrence in what was expressive of hope :— GENTLEMEN OF THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL,— In meeting you again for the despatch of business, &nbsp; I am happy to be able to congratulate you on the &nbsp; improvement which continues to manifest itself in i the cndition of the colony. &nbsp; Since the close of your last session, it has been &nbsp; ascertained that in the year 1844, for the first time &nbsp; in the History of New South Wales, the exports of &nbsp; the colony exceeded the imports—a fact which affords the fairest promise of our colonists being able speedily to overcome the difficulties in wh...
ENGLISH. MR. GLADSTONE ON THE MAYNOOTH GRANT. HOUSE OF COMMONS.—SATURDAY, APRIL. 11. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 15 August 1845
ENGLISH. &nbsp; MR. GLADSTONE ON THE MAYNOOTH GRANT. HOUSE OF COMMONS.—SATURDAY, APRIL 11. THE work of receiving petitions concluded, and some smaller matters disposed of, Sir Robert Peel moved the second reading of the Maynooth College Bill. Mr. Colquhoun, repeating many argumenta against the measure—the Democratic and agitating ten- dencies of Maynooth, the inevitable following of ulterior endowments for the Roman &nbsp; &nbsp; Catholic Church, and so forth,—moved that the bill be read a second time that day six months. He was followed by Mr. Grogan to the same effect, with an emphatic warning of the danger of encouraging the Jesuits in Ireland. Mr. Gladstone then rose. He excused himself for not having dulivered his opinion on the measure at the earliest opportunity, by the necessity of seeing the printed bill and maturing his judgment. He admitted his belief that the minority of last week re- presented the prevailing sense of a great majority of the peopl...

ENGLISH. THE TYRANNY OF ECCLESIASTICAL COURTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 15 August 1845
ENGLISH. &nbsp; THE TYRANNY OF ECCLESIASTICAL COURTS. A RESPECTABLE inhabitant of Norwich, Mr. Francis, was cited before the Ecclesiastical Court, not for refusing to pay, but for " wil- fully and contumaciously refusing to join or concur in the making of a Church-rate." Sir Herbert J. Fust decided that this constituted an ecclesiastical offence, for which the party was subject to spiritual censures, besides other pains and penalties in the shape of costs. This decision the Court of Queen's Bench has overruled in a judgment distin- guished for its sound legal and constitutional principle, and which raises another barrier against the aggression of ecclesiastical au- thority. Had so monstrons a proposition been once established in law as that which Sir H. J. Fust's decision involved, all oppo- sition to Church-rates would have been at an end. Every opponent would have been sub- ject to excommunication. Lord Denman, in giving judgment in the case, observes :— " The Court could ...
IRELAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 15 August 1845
IRELAND. The proceedings at the weekly meeting of the Repeal Association, on Monday (7th), were rather entertaining. Mr. O'Connell introduced Mr. Richard Grey Porter, late High Sheriff of Fermanagh (and author of a well-known pamphlet on Federalism), and moved that he he enrolled a member of the Association, which was carried by acclama- tion. Mr. Porter avowed his adherence to Federalism. The chief features of the new Act of Union which he advocated were, firstly, the recognition of Ireland as a voluntary partner in the Hiberno-British Empire ; se- condly, the settlement of the national debts of the two countries on equitable principles ; and next, an increase of Representatives in the British House of Commons, to the extent to which this country was entitled according to population and amount of territory. But be gave the associators some advice. He would tell them some of the reasons which deterred many thousands of men of moderate opinions in the North of Ireland, and indeed in ...
AGRICULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 15 August 1845
AGRICULTURE. &nbsp; To Sow PARSNIPS.—Dibble the seed half an inch deep, in rows eighteen inches apart, and at intervals of ten inches in the rows, on the surface of well and deeply cultivated soil, This will cost about 8s. an acre. SALT AS A MANURE—One cwt. per acre is sufficient for a stiff clay, but three or four for a light soil, Throw in charcoal dust, earthy coal ashes, vegetable mould, &c., into the pit along with night soil ; but by no means quick lime. Mix it in a compost along with other manures. MATURATION OF CORN.—It is renarkable that the further north it can be made to grow, the shorter is the period in which it comes to maturity ; it has also been observed that corn grown in the extreme north, when used as a seed in a southern country, gives its first produce more speedily, ripening in a much shorter time, although ata second sow- ing it loses this quality. This fact has been taken advantage of in Sweden, corn being annually brought for seed from Turneo...
PERIODICAL WORK CONDUCTED BY LUNATICS. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 15 August 1845
PERIODICAL WORK CONDUCTED BY LUNATICS. LUNATICS, who, fifty years ago, were dun- geoned and whipped, are now treated to balls and soirées, they conduct farms, and are admitted to public worship. A new feature has been developed in their treat- ment at the Crichton Institution, Dumfries ; they there club their wits to prepare and issue a monthly periodical sheet. The first number of The New Moon, or Crichton Royal Institution Literary Register, appeared on the 3rd of December, in the form of a double leaf in quarto. It is sold to the public, but we are not informed at what price. In the prospectus, the fact of the exclusive manage- ment of the work by inmates is asserted ; and the object is stated to be, a humble endeavour to lead persons of that class to think aright on the chief subjects which &nbsp; should occupy their attention under present circumstances, so that they may leave the institution wiser and better men and women than they entered it.' Not only is the literary...
ENGLISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 15 August 1845
ENGLISH EXTRACTS. COLLEGE OF CHEMISTRY.—A College of Chemistry has been established in the me- tropolis. The promoters of this college have four objects in view-viz., 1st. To es- tablish a laboratory, (as designed by Sir H. Davy) for original investigations, and for extending the boundaries of chemical science on the model of the Giessen laboratory. 2nd. To form a " college " for the instruc- tion of students in analysis and scientific research, upon such terms as to encourage young men of talent and scientific taste to apply themselves to chemistry, and for qua- lifying public lecturers and teachers. 3rd. To form departments for the application of chemistry to agriculture, geology, minera- logy, and metallurgy, by an analysis of soils, rocks, &c. ; to medicine, physiology, the arts, and manufactures. 4th. The enjoyment of such means as may appear expedient for en- couraging the pursuit of scientific chemistry throughout the country, and for making it a branch of general edu...

EXECUTION.—Maxfield, convicted at the last Sessions of attempting the murder of the Overseer at Port Arthur, was executed on Tuesday morning. From the insensibility to his awful condition which the Courier represents him to have exhibited to the last, may be concluded how utterly useless, and worse than useless, would have been the spectacle intended by the Puisné Judge to have been made of him at Port Arthur.
