WAR OFFICE, Dec. 63d reg -Capt, J. Craig Dumas, from half pay to be captain, paying the dif- ference, vice Lord William Paulet, appointed to the 21st. ;   It operates very much against the causo of both the Russians and Turks, that most of die European journals agree in the opinion, that the truth is not to be expected'from either party. No less than eight wives sacrificed themselves on the funeral pile of a Rajah Prince, who died lately in Bengal. Mr. Hume stated, in India 5 9Ü7 widows were sacrificed as sntteos, within the last 10 years. Five and a quarter per cent «as the last half year's dividend on Indian slock. The new law which gives magistrates a summary power over assaults, diminishes the emoluments of the Clerk of the Peaco for Middlesex one thousand pounds. An Irish paper of January laRthas the following, "On Thursday His Excellency the Lord Lieutenant visited Carton, where he shot in the morning, and afterwards spxmt tho day with the Duke of Lein, »tor."

LORD NORBURY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 18 July 1829

LORD NORBURY. Lord Norbury, (then Mr. Tolcr) had more refcrli« ness of repartee than any man I ever knew who pos- sessed neither classical wit nor genuine sentiment to make it" valuable. But lhe had a fling at every thing, and failing in one attempt made another-sure of carrying his point before lie relinquished his efforts. Iris extreme good temper was a great advantage. The present Lord Redesdale waa much (though unin- tentionally) annoyed by Mr. Toler, at one of the first dinners he gave (as Lord Chancellor of Ireland) to the judges and King's council. Having heard that the members of the Irish bar, (of whom he was then quite ignorant,) were considered extremely witty, and be- ing desirous if possible to adapt himself to their ha bits, his Lordship had previously got together some of his best bnr remarks (for of irit he was totally guiltless, if not ¡»apprehensive,)tn repeat to his com- pany as occasion might offer, and if he could not be humorous tleterinitiedat least to be ente...

SWAN RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 18 July 1829

SWAN RIVER. The settlement about to be made upon the Swan River, on the western shores of New Holland, appears to have excited considerable interest, both in England and on the Continent. The French and Dutch have been for some time contemplating a settlement on this river, and a small French expedition, we believe, sailed some time ago from Rio de Janeiro, for the purpose of taking possession of the country. Their ob-   ject, however, would be superseded, inasmuch as the English had previously sent a detachment from King George's Sound to lay the foundation of a settlement; so that the French, on their arrival, would probably find the British flag flying. It would be extremely impolite, indeed, on the part of our government, to suffer any other nation to establish settlements in New Holland, as the consequence would, in all human probability, be constant wars between the different descriptions of colonists. The climate of the Swan River is represented as equal to any p...

GEOLOGY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 18 July 1829

GEOLOGY. At a recent sitting of the Académie des Sciences M. Adolphe Brongniart read a paper entitled 'Ge- neral Observations on the Nature-of the Vegetation   which covered the surface of the earth at the various epochs of the formation of its shell. According to M. Brongniart, vegetable fossils, studied in the order of their creation, indicate the existence of three grand periods ; during each of which vegetation has preserved the same essential characters, while its characters are totally different when it passes from one of those periods to another. The first or most ancieut period, comprehends the space of time which elapsed between the earliest deposit of earthy layers of sediment and the deposit of the formations of coal which latter may be considered as resulting from the destruction of the primitive vegetation of the globe. The antiquity of the layers in which the vegetable be- longing to this earliest period are found proves that life began on earth with the v...

THE LAST OF MR. WIDOWSON'S BOOK. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 25 July 1829

THE LAST OF MR. WIDOWSON'S BOOK.     Since my former remarks on this book, I have learned from several quarters that Mr. Widowson was materially assisted in its completion by another gen- tleman, also a settler for a short time in this island, who returned to England about the same lime. The work however is so unique, and so completely sui generis, I cannot believe that more than one hand has   had to do with it. It is in truth so very bad, and in every respect so like the author that, I conceive, none but Mr. Widowson himself could have produced it. Like the art of sinking in poetry of the great Martinas Scriblerus, the whole merit of the work must be planted on the brow of the great Widowson, for none but himself could he his great parallel. Hear the title of his book, viz. " The present state of Van Diemen's land, comprising an account of its agricul- tural capabilities, with observations on the present state of farming, &c. &c. pursued in that colony...
