Miscellancous Shipping. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 22 August 1845

Miscellaneous Shipping. The Swan, Scout, and Lillian, for Melbourne, the Timho and Souvenir for Adelaide, the Minerva and Julia for Portland Bay have not been signal- ized out ; but the weather has moderated, and the wind being southerly this morning, they will pro- bably sail during the day. The Waterwitch, from the Mauritius, 2nd July, is in the river. She reports the wreck of a vessel belonging to Mr. Orr, of Melbourne, but we have not full particulars. The Nimrod, from Hohart Town via Twofold   Bay, with cattle and sundries, arrived at Auckland on 30th June, The Sir John Franklin, from Hobart Town, via Bay of Islands, arrived at Auckland on the same day. She sailed for Sydney on the 9th July. The commander of the Taglioni (arrived at Ade- laide,) has gained golden opinions by his punctu- ality. Several firms received goods by her, some from Glasgow, in eight months and a week from the date of their order, a thing unprecedented since the foundation of the colony. A v...

THE OBSERVER. HOBART TOWN, FRIDAY, AUGUST 22. REPRESENTATIVE GOVERNMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 22 August 1845

THE OBSERVER. HOBART TOWN, FRIDAY, AUGUST 22. REPRESENTATIVE GOVERNMENT.             A FUTURE generation seems likely to have as good reason for making grateful mention of the Government of Van Diemen's Land in 1845, as that which the present generation in England has for a grateful reference to the name of King John, or Edward I. The name of John is associated very often with Magna Charta, as if he had been a liberal benefactor, while to Edward has been given the title of the English Solon. History, how- ever, shews that the concessions of both mo- narchs were forced from them ; and that it was the tyranny they attempted which pro- duced a reaction so favourable to thc edifice of British liberty. Shall we say that our lo- cal Government is underhand aiming it a similar result, by menus which neither John nor Edward intended so to operate ? Be thnt as it may, its measures are likely to prove the strength o...

THE COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 22 August 1845

THE COUNCIL. WHAT a strange turn the proceedings of Council took on Wednesday ! The report in another page may be too detailed to invite the perusal of many readers, so we shall seek to present a brief view of what passed on that day. First there came Mr. Dry's motion for a Committee of the Coun- cil to inquire into the expenditure of the Government consequent upon the convict, and upon the colonial establishment, re- latively. In favour of this motion so reasonable and so just in the very face of it, little could he said—it was so obviously reasonable and just. It was met by the Colonial Secretary who contended thal such a Committee could not arrive nt the exact truth, but at its approximation only, at best ; and for that mathematical reason Mr. Bicheno who has been a moral reasoner his life long, and must have learned many a a day since that it is absurd to apply mathe- matical principles to practical politics in which the only evidence is probable not minute, gave his vote agains...

ABANDONMENT OF THE THREATENED INCREASE OF LICENSES, AND POSTAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 22 August 1845

ABANDONMENT OF THE THREATENED INCREASE OF         LICENSES, AND POSTAGE. WE believe tlint we may say that the Go- vernment has abandoned the unwise inten-   tion of increasing the charges for licenses and also for postage. It was the withdrawal from the second draft Estimates of the amount calculated to be raised from those sources, £4000 on licenses, and £1500 on the post office, that defeated the Govern- ment on Wednesdny, by rendering the Estimates laid on the table different from those furnished to the members of Council. (See our Report.)

THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. MONDAY, 18TH AUGUST. ALL PRESENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 22 August 1845

THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. MONDAY, 18TH AUGUST. ALL PRESENT. The Minutes of the last meeting having been read the Governor laid on the table the Hill to allow the Commandant of Norfolk Island to appoint constables. The Colonial Secretary gave notice that the con- sideration of the Estimates would be proceeded with to-morrow (Tuesday). Mr. Dry in compliance with his notice moved the appointment of a Committee of Five to in- quire into the applicability to this colony of the Statute of James. Mr. O'Connor seconded the motion. The Chief Justice thought that some ground       should be stated for the motion which was unusual   in its character. Mr. Dry stilted that he intended to give his reasons, which were these—that the most con- flicting opinions as to the expediency of the mea- sure existed among well informed persons, some deeming that it would be advantageous, and others prejudicial to the colony, and he bought it ad- visable that...

CASTING OF A FORTION OF WYATT'S STATUE OF THE DUKE OF WELLINGTON. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 22 August 1845

CASTING OF A PORTION OF WYATT'S STATUE OF THE DUKE OF WELLINGTON. About a fortnight ago we witnessed the   casting of a large portion of the equestrian   group of the Duke of Wellington for the west end of London,—and a striking sight     it was, though seen by only a few gentlemen and the workmen employed. The run from the furnace consisted of more than twenty tons of metal—the greatest quantity of brass (we are inclined to believe) that ever was molten together, and so used in the world and the effect was very extraordinary. The glowing stream, as it pourded from the tap of   the furnace along the channel prepared for it into the deep pits, was covered with va- pours of unimaginable variety of colours and brilliancy : and above a canopy of dense cloud, reflecting and refracting tho rays of light, was not the less grand from the know, ledge that no living being could exist in that atmosphere for twenty seconds of time...

THE AFRICAN CHIEF. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 22 August 1845

THE AFRICAN CHIEF. CHAIN'D in the market-place he stood, A man of giant frame, Amid the gathering multitude That shrunk to hear his name All stern of look and strong of limb. His dark eye on the ground :— And silently they gazed on him, As on a lion bound. Vainly, but well, that chief had fought, He was a captive now, Yet pride, that fortune humbles not, Was written on his brow. The scars His dark broad bosom wore, Show'd warrior true and brave ; A prince among his tribe before, He could not be a slave. Then to his conqueror he spake— " My brother is a king ; Undo this necklace from my neck, And take this bracelet ring, And send me where my brother reigns, And I will fill thy hands With store of ivory from the plains, And cold-dust from the sands. " Not for thy ivory nor thy gold Will I unbind thy chain ; That bloody hand shall never bold The battle-spear again. A price thy nation never gave, Shall yet be paid for thee ; For thou shalt be the Christian's slave. In lands beyond the s...

ENGLISH. AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 22 August 1845

ENGLISH.   AMERICA. The Montezuma, Captain Lusher, which left New York on the 18th reached Liver- on Tuesday, bringing an anticipatory list of the new Cabinet, General Almonte, the Mexican Minister, had sent into the New Executive a strong protest against the an- nexation of Texas, which he terms " un un- paralleled outrage." The Senate has called upon the President for information on the state of relations with Mexico, and the French and British Ministers have endea- voured to prevail on Almonte not to depart till he receives instructions from his Go- vernment. It was stated from Mexico that Santa Anna was still a prisoner, waiting for death or banishment in the Castle of Perote. The country was, quiet. The American news from Canada is merely that the Legislature had addressed the Governor on his exaltation to the peerage. A letter from Multnomah city, Oregon territory, dated the 18th of June, 1844,   says, the Oregon Legislature convened in that city the ...

MIDDLESEX SESSIONS. A CANDIDATE FOR TRANSPORTATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 22 August 1845

MIDDLESEX SESSIONS. A CANDIDATE FOR TRANSPORTATION. William Smith, aged twenty one, was in- dicted for stealing a pair of boots on the previous evening. As soon as the prisoner was placed at the bar, the chief turnkey of the House of Correction acquainted the bench that the prisoner, under the name of George Cramer, had been tried in that court upon an indictment charging him with stealing two sheets and other articles from his lodgings. He was acquitted, and discharged out of custody at about four o'clock on Tuesday evening, and had again been taken at six o'clock for the felony with which he now stood charged. The assistant judge remarked that he remembered the case very well. The prisoner, it appeared, had given himself up to the police, stating that he had robbed his lodgings, but when the case came on for trial yesterday, the jury, in the absence of conclusive evidence other than the prisoner's own statement as to his guilt, acquitted him. He (the assistant judge) presumed it w...

AGRICULTURE. EXTRACTS FROM PUBLICATIONS ON BONE MANURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 22 August 1845

AGRICULTURE.   EXTRACTS PROM PUBLICATIONS ON BONE MANURE. THE Right Hon. Sir John Sinclair, founder of the Board of Agriculture, in the Addenda to the " Code of Agriculture," published in 1832. says, that the use of bones as a ma- nure, is perhaps the most important disco- very connected with the cultivation of the soil, that has been made in the course of a great number of years. By means of that discovery, an end is put to every difficulty, in producing at home subsistence for the people of this country (the Uniied Kingdom.)   We may now be rendered independent of fo- reign produce ; and unless our population were greatly to increase, we should be hardly able to consume, without the aid of exportation, the great quantities of grain that can be raised under this improved sys- tem of production. It has been proverbial indeed, " that one ton of German bone dust saves the importation of ten tons of German corn." In short, it is impossible to foresee what may ...

VIEW FROM THE TOP OF THE GREAT PYRAMID OF EGYPT. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 22 August 1845

VIEW FROM THE TOP OF THE GREAT PYRAMID OF EGYPT. It was now about mid-day, and the sun, quite free from clouds, smote upon the Py- ramid with great vehemence ; so that, with the warmth produced by the labour of the ascent and the ardour of its rays, we expe- rienced a heat resembling that of an oven. The air was clear, and our view unimpeded on all sides. To the south. scattered in irre- gular groups, were the Pyramids of Sakkarah, Abousir, and Dashour, glittering in the sun, like enormous tents ; and appearing from their number and irregularity, to extend to an unknown distance into the desert. On the west was the wilderness of Libya, stretch- ing away to the edge of the horizon ; arid,   undulating, boundless, apparently destitute of the very principle of vegetation, an eter- nal prey to the sand-storm and the whirl- wind. A flock of gazelles or a troop of Be- douins scouring across the plain, would have relieved its monotony ; but neither the one nor the other appear...

RUINS OF PERS[?]POLIS. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 22 August 1845

RUINS OP PERSEPOLIS. The general impression produced by the ruins of Persepolis is thus described :—" I moved from one group of ruins to another like one under the influence of wine : my head felt quite giddy. Not that each sepa- rate monument was a master piece by itself ; it was the tout ensemble which kept the mind and the imagination in a continual state of excitement. But these feelings, however de- licious and grateful they might be to oneself, were yet so vague and undefined, so confused even, that it would be impossible to bring them into any tangible form, for words are inadequate to give them expression. I can only point out the elements which serve to give birth to those feelings. It was tho ori- ginality of the scene before me, so totally   different from everything one is daily accus- tomed to meet ; the chaste simplicity of the monuments, beautifully harmonising with their gigantic proportions ; the Titanic rocks of marble and of granite, evidently piled u...

MECHANICS' INSTITUTE. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 22 August 1845

MECHANICS' INSTITUTE. Two Lectures have been delivered on the last two Friday evenings, by the President of the Institution on the subject of " Mechan- ics." We regret that we were unable at the time to give a detailed report of the first Lecture, while its interesting topics were fresh on the minds of some of our readers. In defining the particular provence of mechanical science in the application of forces to practical purposes, the Lecturer wished it to be distinctly understood that nothing more is meant by the term " force " than an effect, invariably connected with certain causes. Thus in lifting the arm there is an act of volition, a movement of the muscles, and the arm is raised. Of the nature of the connection between mental and muscular operation we are totaly igno- rant, but the extent to which the muscles can raise the limb we call the amount of muscular force ; which force may be applied to a variety of useful purposes. There ore several natural forces freely available t...

SYDNEY INTELLIGENCE. EMANCIPISTS FROM VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. " Comptroller-General's Office, " June 21, 1845.

" M. FORSTER, Comptroller-General." The above notification is extracted from a Hobart Town paper, and is one of no small importance to this colony. Various circum- stances impress upon us the belief that the great majority of these Van Diemen's Land emancipists will betake themselves to New South Wales ; and the question is, ought we to encourage or resist such a movemont ? In truth, this is substantially the same ques-       tion as that argued by us six...
