Miscellancous Shipping. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 19 August 1845
Miscellaneous Shipping. &nbsp; &nbsp; The Lillias, bound from Hobart Town to Port Phillip, put in yesterday through stress of weather. &nbsp; The Alpha, from Port Albert, brings intelligence &nbsp; that the Isabella was a total wreck, having gone to &nbsp; &nbsp; pieces during the late gales. The Adelaide was at Rabbit Island, having &nbsp; &nbsp; captured two whales ; the Industry, in Lady's &nbsp; Bay, two whales ; the Agnes & Elizabeth was also &nbsp; in Lady's Bay, three whales. Heavy gales have prevailed for some days.

FRIDAY'S DISCUSSION. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 19 August 1845
FRIDAY'S DISCUSSION. THE discussion in the Legislative Council &nbsp; on Friday, was the most important, and, on &nbsp; the part of the independent members, the best sustained to which we have listened during the present session. It was the most important, because every member was pre- sent, and the principle which triumphed by the unanimity of the independent side of the Council, must determine thc fate of many other questions, which await decision. That principle is, that this colony ought not to be required to sustain new burdens, while the injustice of taxing its revenue with the whole expense of the police and goals lasts —that either it should he relieved in that, &nbsp; or should have an equivalent for it in public works performed by prisoner labour, at the cost of the Home Treasury. In favour of the principle, the demonstration, owing to the nature of the question, could not reach to its full extent. It will, however, no doubt be followed up on the Es...
THE LIGHTING AND PAVING BILL AND THE ESTIMATES. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 19 August 1845
THE LIGHTING AND PAVING BILL AND THE ESTIMATES. &nbsp; It will be seen, by our report of the Coun- cil's proceedings on Friday last, that the Lighting and Paving Bill was lost by a motion of Mr. Gregson that its further con- sideration be postponed to that day six months. All the unofficial members were present, and voted against the Government. Captain Swanston intended to have ex- plained that he had voted for the second reading of the Bill, partly because the Coun- cil had on various occasions advised the Government to throw the expenses for lighting and paving the town on the citi- zens, and partly because he believed the present measure would prove beneficial ; but that he now intended to support the amendment, as the great body of the citizens who were especially affected by the Act, were opposed to it. He was, however, not permitted to offer these explanations, as he was reading his speech, a course that was objected to by his Excellency and Mr. Gregson as inconvenien...
NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 19 August 1845
NEW ZEALAND. THE accounts from New Zealand will re- new the sorrow and anxiety excited by former events. Our troops are again re- pulsed and reduced. By unsuccessful attacks they have encouraged the combina- tion and confirmed the hopes of the insur- gents. They are however clear of blame except perhaps for the excess of their valour. They approached the muskets of their entrenched opponents, forgetful that courage is useless when intercepted by barriers which impetuosity cannot destroy. The deficiency of artillery was evidently the cause of failure, and so long as it continues, the bayonet will be unsuccessful. Although the occupation of New Zealand as a Colony of the Empire may be open to censure, the British Government owes a duty to the inhabitants paramount to every other con- sideration. The public faith is pledged and must be redeemed—the Colony must be protected. Its present condition has been long foreseen, and frequently predicted, yet it seems to have taken the Government...
LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 19 August 1845
LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. JACKY JACKY On Thursday night, with his two companions, made their appearance at the &nbsp; residence of Mr. Skeen, Jericho, and succeeded in securing the servants in an out-house. They attempted to effect an entrance into Mr. Steen's house—but without success ; and after remaining about an hour they departed, taking with them a quantity of bacon, tea, sugar, and tobacco. &nbsp; Immediate pursuit was commenced, but in vain. THE NEW ZEALAND SUFFERERS.—The Com- mittee formed for aiding the unfortunate persons who lost all their property at the Bay of Islands, have requested us to insert a letter received on this subject from the Coloninl Secretary of New Zealand. The draft for £30 mentioned in the letter has been presented, and will be paid. As soon as the Lieutenant-Governor was informed that the Committee had only about £55 in hand to meet the bill, he, with his usual liberality, sent immediately a cheque for £25 as a subscription. The Committ...
INSOLVENT COURT. THURSDAY, AUGUST 14. (Before Edward Macdowell Esq.) [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 19 August 1845
INSOLVENT COURT. &nbsp; &nbsp; THURSDAY, AUGUST 14. (Before Edward Macdowell Esq.) In re George Wheatley.—A first meeting of the creditors of this insolvent took place this day, which on the application of Mr. Dyne wis adjourned to the 28th, a compo- sition with the creditors being likely to be effected. In re Reuhen Joseph.—A first general meeting, and also for discharge, took place this day, and as there was no opposition the discharge was issued. In re D' Arcy Haggitt.—This was a first general meeting of creditors, and also that for discharge. Several debts were proved, and the insol- vent was examined by Capt. Macdonald, the assignee, who opposed the discharge on the ground of undue preference having been shewn by the insolvent to one of his credi- tors, and also that he had contracted debts without having at the time any expectation of being able to pay them. The Commis- sioner was of opinion that it had not been shewn that any undue preference was given, and th...
THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. FRIDAY, 15TH AUGUST. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 19 August 1845
THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. FRIDAY, 15TH AUGUST. The minutes of the previous sitting having &nbsp; being read, and notices of one or two motions been given, several petitions were presented against the passing of the James' Act, the third reading of which had been fixed for this day. Amoung them were petitions from E. P. Butler, and David Lord, Esqs., praying that counsel should be heard against the Bill, and that the Council should appoint a committee to receive evidence, and report upon the suitableness of the Act to the colony. In the meantime on the motion of Mr. Dry, the third &nbsp; reading of the Bill was postponed, and notice was &nbsp; given by him of a motion in compliance with the &nbsp; prayers of the petitions adverted to. The order of the day was then moved for pro- &nbsp; ceeding with the Lighting and Paving Bill, when &nbsp; Mr. Gregson rose and moved that the further con- &nbsp; sideration of the measure should be...
CORRESPONDENCE. [?] The Editor of this Journal dors not hold himself responsible for the opinions of his correspondents. To the Editor of the Observer. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 19 August 1845
CORRESPONDENCE. &nbsp; *** TheEditor of this Journal doers not hold him- &nbsp; self responsible for the opinions of his correspondents. To the Editor of the Observer. SIR,—Upon a little consideration you will no doubt confess that you have done an injury to our &nbsp; very worthy Colonial Secretary, when you com- plain of the TRUTHS which " in all kindness " he told the unofficial members of the advising Coun- cil the other day. I think the colony should ac- &nbsp; knowledge with gratitude his coming forward to undeceive honourable gentlemen, and should really take it " in all kindness " that he has let the cat out of the bag. Hon. gentlemen will now see what a humbug they are lending themselves to most unconsciously, and at an immense sacrifice of their personal comfort and convenience,—and all for what ? To give their advice, which his Ex- &nbsp; celleney has already made up his mind whether he will attend to or not. —Yours, A PLAIN MAN.
SYDNEY INTELLIGENCE. SQUATTING REGULATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 19 August 1845
SYDNEY INTELLIGENCE. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; SQUATTING REGULATIONS. THe following are the new regulations which are more satisfactory than they were ex- pected to be :— 1. No existing run to be disturbed exeept &nbsp; by non-compliance with the regulations on &nbsp; the part of the occupier and the compliance therewith by a stranger. 2. The capability of every run to be deter- mined by—? 3.

Every run of sufficient extent to carry not less than 8O00 sheep, to be nominally divided into squaltalions. 6. A l...
BECHE-LE-MER. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 19 August 1845
BECHE-LE-MER On the coasts of the islands to the north- ward of New Holland there is a sea-slug, &nbsp; &nbsp; known in commerce as beche-le-mer, which is extensively used in China, and according to M'Cullach, realises from £25 to £150 a ton, according to variety and cure. The Dutch merchants at Batavia, and the English &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; at the Mauritius, have, it is said, entered in- to the beche-le-mer trade ; and our object in now writing is to ask, whether we have no &nbsp; merchants who have the capital (the amount required cannot be large) and the skill and enterprise to fit out a couple of vessels from Sydney, and give the speculation a trial ? Sydney must become the centre of the trade between the Australian and Polynesian set- tlements and China, and if we could procure an article of such general consumption as &nbsp; &nbsp; this sea slug is in China, in return for the large, quantities of tea...

THE HURRICANE. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 19 August 1845
THE HURRICANE. LORD of the winds ! I feel thee nigh, I know thy breath in the burning sky ! And I wait, with a thrill in every vein, For the coming of the hurricane ! And lo ! on the wing of the heavy gales. Through the boundless arch of heaven he sails ! Silent, and slow, and terribly strong, The mighty shadow is borne along, Like the dark eternity to come ; While the world below, dismay'd and dumb, Through the calm of the thick hot atmosphere Looks up at its gloomy folds with fear. They darken fast—and the golden blaze Of the sun is quench'd in the lurid haze, And he sends through the simile a funeral ray— A glare that is neither night nor day, A beam that touches, with hues of death, The clouds above and the earth beneath. To its covert glides the silent bird, While the hurricane's distant voice is heard, Uplifted among the mountains round, And the forests hear and answer the sound. He is come ! he is come ! do ye not behold His ample robes on the wind unroll'd ? Giant of air ! w...
