REMAINS AT POMPEII. We are now approaching the limit of the city which was formed by a double wall, one several yards within the other. Just before passlng through the Herculaneum Gate, our attention-was directed to a shop which had been used for the sale. o hotliquors ; the mairksof cups in which the liqiors hive been were distinct upon the marble counter. The names of tradesmen in Pompeii were, by the way, often painted at the sides of their shop doors. Close tr the gate, on the outside, is a sentry box, precisely u it stood when the plague of ashes destioyed the city, and within it was found the skeleton of a soldier who had died at his'post. The road beyond, which is a gradual descent for some distance, is cailed the Street of Tombs, being lined on both sides ilth reposltories for the remains of the dead. The tombs are handsome structures of considerable size, .5uthey contain one or more small clhainbers ; they dilfer in furin, but seldom in their internal arrange ments. On seve...

Varieties. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 18 November 1846

7artctftcr. -a THE A IOnoINEs OF TIIHE OREoon.-The principal tribes yet surviving are the Flat-head Indians, so called from a custom which prevails among them -of compressing the heads of infants with boards and bandages so as to alter their shape; the Snakes, the Chinooks, Clatsops, Chileotlins, and Talcotins. Each tribe has its own district, and is more or less distinguished by its own customs. Some amongst the most.ferocious and fanatical are said to practise cannibalism ; but there is reason to believe that the usage is confined to a very limited number, and has a direct connection with their superstitions. The chief of one of these tribes, when he becomes inspired by what he supposes to be a divine call, flies alone and with a slender stock of provisions to the woods. Here he communes with the Great •Spirit until his provisions are exhausted, and then, "half famishing and half frenzied, he rushes back to his village, clambers to the roof-top of the first house he reaches, force...

THE LAND LEAGUE. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 18 November 1846

THE LAND LEAGUE. .(From the South Austrailon Register, Oct. 7.) The most gigantic combination ever lhazarded In South Australia has been organised within the last few days, and it is proceeding at a railroad pace. It is neither more nor less than the formation of the Royal Mining Company, with a nominal or partially subscribed capital of 100,0001. Some of the most clever men in the colony are its projectors; some of the most wary and fortunate its managers ; and almost every man who has a penny to spare (cap. tivated by previous successes in mining speculs. tions) is pressing forward with breathless anxiety to infuse blood into the yet inanimate monster's veins, one of the leading features of the scheme being a kind of universality which is to enrol the whole colony in one mighty plhalanx. In a word, the object of this combination is to raise a fund so enormous, and to include interests so numerous, that no man shall have at the ensuing mineral sale, or at any subsequent one for yea...

British Extracts. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 18 November 1846

-o ToRT'NS..-The general principle of the Tontine is understood to be that of a loan raised upon life annuities, with benefit of survivorship; or, in the more modern and more extended acceptation of the term, an association of persons for the purpose of carrying into effect some grand object, too vast for an individual; all the parties deriving an immediate and considerable profit from their investments, the annual profit periodically increasing, and the last survivor of the association becoming sole possessor of the capital. The ' Westbourno Terrace Tontine," now in progress, furnishes an illustration in point. The terrace named, in the immediate vicinity of Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens, consists of seventy-three splendid mansions, constituting what has been happily designated " a street of palaces." This magnificent range of domestic architecture, with a roadway forty feet wider than that of Port land-place, and confessedly the finest in the metro polis, is a bona jide existin...

FREE TRADE IN FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 18 November 1846

FREE TRADE IN FRANCE. (From the London Mercantile Journal.) The principal merchants in Bordeaux formed an association about the year 1832, at the head of which were some of the most influential writers on political economy'in France; and during several years, whilst the negotiation for a treaty of com merce was pending between the two countries, this body agitated tire question of free trade in the same modle, but with less succtss, as the Anti-Corn Law League in the north of England. Tire measures pioposed by the English government for the re duction of import duties has revived the spirits of the merchants' and wi.e.-growers of the Gironde, and a new association lias been formed, not in a spirit of imitation, but in consequence of the pro gress of sound principles, and based upon a pro found investigation of the commercial and indus trial condition of France. The following is an extract from the able speech of M. Duffiour-Duber gier, Mayor of, Bordeaux, and President of the associ...

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 13. SITTINGS IN BANCO. Before their Honors the three Judges. HAMPDEN V. CLARKE. This was an action upon a money bond, and the declaration alleged that the defendant had agreed by such bond to pay, before the first January, 1843, the sum of 4001. arid interest thereon. To this the defendant had, among ether things, pleaded separate payment of 2501. and 5:1. in accord and satisfaction of so much of the causes of action as had reference to these sums ; both these payments were pleaded in bar, the larger sum 'having been paid, as was alleged,-before the commencement of the suit, and the smaller sum after its commencement. Both these pleas were demurred to upon various grounds, the principal of ,which was that pleas of payment in part-formed no answer in an action upon a bond, which became forfeit directly default was made. Mr. Fisher appeared in support of the demurrer, and merely referred the Court to the case of Aslibee v. Pidduck, 1 Meeson and Welsby, 565, in which i...
