ENGLISH. FLEET PRISON. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 19 August 1845
ENGLISH. &nbsp; FLEET PRISON. AMONG the striking revolutions of great towns, are the chances which take place in the destinations of buildings, streets, or wider localities. A chapel becomes a senate house ; a royal palace a bridewell ; the resort of courtiers a haunt for street-beggars and pickpockets ; the site of the stocks is occupied by the official residence of the chief magis- trate. A large town of any decent antiquity presents a very puzzle of ancient associations. The London of this century and the London of one or two centuries ago are the same and not the same. Were spirits permitted to revisit this world, the disembodied mem- bers of the Long Parliament, who used to take their recreation in Tothil Fields, would be much astray among the squalid and noisome labyrinth of courts which now oc- cupy them ; and some fifty years hence, when the Pimlico Palace is surrounded on all sides by a now West-end, the ghosts of the respectable characters who used to keep fighting...
FOREIGN. SWITZERLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 19 August 1845
FOREIGN. SWITZERLAND. The following is the official announce- ment of the invasion and deliverance of Lu- cerne, as issued by the Government of that canton to tho Government of each of tho , confederates' cantons :— " Dear and faithful confederates,—As we &nbsp; anticipated in the letter which we addressed &nbsp; on March 28, to the federal directory, the enemies of legal order of every kind in our common country have dared to raise afresh the standard of insurrection and anarchy. On the evening of March 30, armed bands, arriving from different parts of Switzerland, who had assembled under the eyes of the Grand Council of Argau, for the purpose of making a hostile incursion into our canton, passed the frontier in great numbers, and occupied several communes. They got into movement in the carly part of tho morning of the 31st, turned the positions where the troops were assembled, and attempted to obtain possession of the town of Lucerne by a sudden attack. Although th...
THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. [Concluded from our last.] MONDAY, 11TH AUGUST. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 19 August 1845
THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. [Concluded from our last.] MONDAY, 11TH AUGUST. &nbsp; &nbsp; The Attorney-General thought that the enacting clause should stand : he was placed in a very awkward position, holding, as he did, and, he would say, very unworth- ily, the appointment, which was previously held by his predecessor, who entertained a different opinion with respect to tho purport of this Bill. It is proposed, then, by this Bill to extend to the subject here, the same advantages, as were possessed by tho subject in England, where it was, now, a matter of consideration,whether Statutes of Limitation should not be extended in their operation ; and, in point of fact, the Statute of James was a Statute of Limitations : he, the At- torney-General would endeavour to explain to the Council how this Act was intended to operate here ; A B. comes to this colony, and obtains a location order, in accordance with which he enters upon his land, and ex- pends his property in clearin...
AGRICULTURE. AN EXPERIMENT ON POTATOES. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 19 August 1845
AGRICULTURE. AN EXPERIMENT ON POTATOES. BY JOHN GREY, ESQ., OF DILSTON. Although the instances of failures in the Potato crop in this district are fewer, and to much less extent this year, than in many former seasons, a detail of an experiment which I have now proved, showing the com- parative produce of autumn and spring planted potatoes, both of which were very full crops on the ground may throw some light on the subject, and at all events show that the fear of their plants being destroyed by frosts in the winter, on tolerably dryland —and no one should plant potatoes on any other—is visionary. Immediately after the harvest in 1843, I had a piece of oat stubble turned up with three horses in a plough, as deep as the soil would admit of. The land was a damp loam, on a retensive subsoil, but had been thorough drained the previous year ; it was then ploughed across, and made up into drill rows of the width of 30 inches. About the 20th October, when the potatoes of that &nbsp;...
