COMMERCIAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 17 June 1845

COMMERCIAL NEWS.                       Brig Agile.—The cargo of wine by this vessel from the Cape having been purchased by Messrs. W. Knight and Lindsay, proceeds immediately to Launceston for a cargo of wheat. A barque or ship was approaching from the southward, off Adventure Bay, wind westerly, when we went to press. She is supposed to be the transport Mount Stewart Elphinstone from England with male con- victs. The outward-bound vessels, so long detained at George Town, all sailed yester- day morning with a strong breeze from the southward, viz., the barque Heroine, for London ; brig Swan, for Port Phillip ; schooner Minerva, for Portland Bay ; cutter William, for Adelaide.—Launceston Adver- tiser, June 13. The Deborah, from this port to Mauritius, arrived at Port Louis on the 9th of March ; and the Marian Watson, from Sydney the 23rd of D...

THE OBSERVER. HOBART TOWN, TUESDAY, JUNE 17. THE PROSPECTS OF THE COLONY. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 17 June 1845

THE OBSERVER.       HOBART TOWN, TUESDAY, JUNE 17. THE PROSPECTS OF THE COLONY. EXPERIENCE, said to be the teacher of   fools, is not to be disdained by the wise. We have reached that point when re-action is visible, and the tide of prosperity return- ing, and it is important that by distinguish- ing the real elements of wealth, and the real means of progress from those which are factitious and evanescent, we may prevent the recurrence of depression from which, we appear to be escaping. The impoverish- ment of most classes in the community, and the total ruin of many, seemed at one time to indicate that the Colony had de- clined beyond the possibility of recovery. Wool and corn, the principal sources of Co-   lonial wealth, afforded no return, and every   addition to the amount of production was   dreaded as a calamity. But the progress of time has dissipated gloomy apprehensions, &nbs...

AMERICAN INTELLIGENCE. POSSIBLE WAR WITH ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 17 June 1845

AMERICAN INTELLIGENCE. POSSIBLE WAR WITH ENGLAND. WE had space in our last number to men- tion only in a brief manner, that a Bill for the Annexation of Texas to the United States had passed the Senate. This Bill has very much divided public opinion in the States, and what the consequence of its passing will be, it is impossible with any certainty to predict. The New York Herald, of February 24th, thus speaks of the passage of the measure when it was yet prospective only, and of its possible consequences :- " Yet, whether it pass this week, or next week-this year, or next year—it seems to be a matter of mere time, for pass it cer- tainly will, in some shape in Congress, either now or hereafter. If it should pass in a few days, that result would produce a new and original crisis in the affairs of Europe, of America, and perhaps of the whole civilized world. The same popular feelings, which, in this country, will have carried the Annexation of Texas, will also occupy Oregon, and go a-...

PROSPECTS OF THE WOOL MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 17 June 1845

PROSPECTS OF THE WOOL MARKET. THE Economist of February 1st contains an   article which professes to be a review of the   history and prospects of the wool trade.   The article would occupy too great a space for us to copy it, but we shall seek to give its substance. The supply and consumption of wool in England during the year 1844 have been on a scale quite unprecedented in extent. The increased supply is attributed in some measure to the wise repeal, by Parliament, of the duty, which pressed with great severity on the lowest class of wools, such as are supplied chiefly from the Mediter- ranean, of Russian, Italian, and African growth. The import of these qualities has increased very much, in thc second half of the year since thc duty was removed. Thc comparison of these wools imported in 1842 and 1844 exhibits an increase amounting to the difference between 13,931, and 35,940, bags. By official tables it appears that the total amount of impo...

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 17 June 1845

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. CAPTAIN CHEYNE.—We regret to see this gentleman, late Director-General of Roads, who has just come from Launceston, compelled to use crutches in walking, and bearing other symptoms of impaired health, the consecquences of the unfortunate accident he sustained several months since by the fall of the coach, when on its journey northward. No one acquainted with public works pre- pared on Capt. Cheyne's plans, can hesitate in acknowledging his abilities as a scientific engineer, nor can any one refuse his sym- pathy to him, deprived as he was of his si- tuation on the ground of charges of which, we understand he has, after investigation been acquitted. By the kind consideration of Sir Eardley Wilmot, when misfortune had apparently reached its climax in Cap- tain Cheyne's case, he was appointed to a situation in the Customs, at Launceston ; but this he wns not allowed to retain, ineffi- ciency arising from his bodily condition, or some such cause, having been alleged ...

MECHANICS' INSTITUTION. OPENING LECTURE [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 17 June 1845

MECHANICS' INSTITUTION. OPENING LECTURE, BY THE REV. J. LILLIE, PRESIDENT. " WE are naturally led," observed the lecturer, in announcing thc subject of discussion for the evening,—" we are naturally led, on an occasion like the present, to ask ourselves, what are the advantages which we may expect to obtain from meeting together at the lectures of a Mechanics' Institute ? Or what is the good we may reckon on as an equivalent for the time and attention consumed ?" After hinting at the more obvious reply to this question, that " the information com- municated is calculated to give pleasing and salutary exercise to our mental faculties," and to he directly useful " in its relation to the practical purposes of life," the lecturer proceeded—" But besides these direct and evident advantages, there are others of a less obvious character, which, on account of their great importance, are entitled to special consideration in every estimate of the value of such institutions. We refer to the mo...

SUPREME COURT. SITTINGS AT NISI PRIUS. WEDNESDAY, 14TH JUNE. Before His Honor Mr. Justice Montagu and a Jury of Four. BROWN V. DORMAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 17 June 1845

SUPREME COURT. SITTINGS AT NISI PRIUS. WEDNESDAY, 14TH JUNE. Before His Honor Mr. Justice Montagu and a Jury of Four. BROWN V. DORMAN. Defendant in this case stated to His Honor that, not being in a condition to fee counsel, he should conduct his case in person. Mr. Macdowell, on the part of the plain- tiff, in a highly creditable manner stated that, as the defendant appeared in person, he should abstain from making any unnecessary remarks. That the declaration, which was of considerable length, alleged in substance that the defendant in this action was pos- sessed of a certain dog, which was of a very vicious nature, and of which circumstance defendant was aware ; but notwithstanding such knowledge, he was so careless, that the plaintiff received very serious injury, which   obliged him to pass about six weeks in hospital. The defendant denied that the plaintiff received his injury through his carelessness, and that he was not apprised of the savage nature of the dog. ...

AMERICAN EXTRACTS. [From the New York Journal of Commerce, Feb. 14] [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 17 June 1845

AMERICAN EXTRACTS. [From the New York Journal of Commerce, Feb,14 ] A sale of a flock of thorough-bred Saxony sheep was recently made at Medina, Ohio ; rams brought from 10 dollars to 50 dollars each, and the ewes from 5 dollars to 30. It is estimated that about 74,000 sheep have been taken to the Western States the past season. THE STEAM PUMP.—This machine for pumping out ships by steam, is doing won- ders. It is a small affair, (not larger than a camboose), yet it contends successfully against fearful leaks. A gentleman who saw its operations the other day, exclaimed, " Why, it would pump thc North River dry, only give it a place to put the water." It has certainly introduced a new era into the case of ships ashore. HAYTI.—The forty-second anniversary of Haytien independence was celebrated at the capital and all the principal towns, on the 1st January, with civic and military dis- plays, and every demonstration of public rejoicing.

INDIA. [From the Launeeston Examiner.] [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 17 June 1845

INDIA. [From the Launceston Examiner.] Sir Charles Napier had again taken the field against the Pendarees of the Indus, whom he defeated with considerable loss, besides capturing 3500 head of cattle. Ma- jor-General Hill, nephew of the late Rev. Rowland Hill, had died at Madras—The Aff- ghans were on actual march to Peshawar. Lahore.—On the 131 st December a revo- lution broke out at Lahore, the object of which was to get rid of the domination of the Jumboo Rajahs. Rajah Heera Singh made an attempt to fly across the Ravee, but was brought back. Dhulleep Singh was again placed on the throne, and Jawahir Singh, his uncle, proclaimed minister. The, mother of the Maharajah is said to have taken a pro- minent part against Rajah Heera Singh. Or- der was immediately restored. Our letters are direct from Lahore. The Friend of India, January 16, says, For a week past nothing particular had been heard from the Punjaub, or any other of the disturbed countries about us ; but yesterday the Engli...

MISCELLANEA. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 17 June 1845

MISCELLANEA. THE GREAT BRITAIN."—This leviathan   steam-ship has arrived at Blackwall, and been taken into the East India Docks, in order to afford the public an opportunity of inspecting her with the requisite facility. Many thousands of persons have visited Blackwall to see her at her moorings, and an immense number of boats were constantly rowing round the ship. Her forecastle deck has suffered from the violence of the gale which raged during her passage to London, and has some defects to be repaired. Some alterations in her bows have been suggested. Although " flaming " so much above the water line, she is very " lean " under, and the present shape of her bows is considered to be not adapted for going through the water at such a rate as it is calculated the " Great Britain" will move when some im- provements are made in her machinery. It is acknowledged in all quarters that the complete success of the screw propeller has been triumphantly established, and it is con-...

SUPREME COURT—CRIMINAL SIDE. SATURDAY, 7TH JUNE, 1845.   Befare His Honor the Chief Justice, who at     10 o'clock took his sent on the Bench, Mr. Macdowell spoke as to the absurdity of the rule, and said, if he were called on to give his learned friend, Mr. Fleming, a cha- racter for honesty, he might not be able to say who he had heard speak in his favor, but from his own knowledge he could give him a good one. His Honor was decidedly of opinion that the question might be asked when the wit- ness stated he had heard other persons speak favourably of his character, although the witness might not be able to tax his memory as to their names. The witness then called Mr. Fisher, and he could say various other persons in his neighbourhood. Thomas Able deposed he was with the pri- the latter part of November, when he pur- chased some stuff on a board, which he at the time thought was print, but he believ- ed the valencia now shewn him was the same a...

NEW ZEALAND, ITS COMPANY, AND THE COLONIAL OFFICE. [From the A[?]as, Feb. 22.] [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 19 June 1845

NEW ZEALAND, ITS COMPANY, AND THE COLONIAL OFFICE. [From the Attas, Feb. 22.] IN a journal conducted with very con- siderable ability, and generally full of in- formation, but so subject to the influence of one or two commercial cliques as to repel public confidence and support from it, we find an article on thc despatch lately ad- dressed by Lord Stanley to Governor Fitz- roy, that merits a few remarks. We have certainly no retainer to defend Lord Stanley from such attack ; nor are wc at all inclined to screen the Colonial Office from censure when it, as often happens, really deserves animadversion ; but we have a commission in the service of truth, and are provoked to use it in the exposure of a few of the many mis-statements that occur in the article in question ; assured that we can do the colo- nies nothing but benefit in disassociating their cause from inaccuracy. Without any preliminary waste of words, we proceel to the examination of the three leading passages in this hill o...
