MADAGASCAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 2 September 1845
MADAGASCAR. WE have been kindly favoured with a number of L'Indicateur Colonial, dated Bourbon, 28th June, received per Water witch, from which we translate and condense thc following- particulars of a serious occur- rence in which tho English and French troops wore dofeatcd, and the residents of Loth nations compelled to quit the island. Both tho English and French merchants resident ot Madagascar were menaced with an expulsion from tba territory, unless they became naturalised before a specified pe- riod. The period had nearly expired when the French corvettes Le Berceau and La Zilie, arrived in tho bay of Tamatave, under the orders of Captain Desfosses, com- mandant of the French station, and the English vessel, the Conway, Captain Kelly, despatched by the Mauritius government, previously arrived. The commanders con- sulted and agreed upon demanding ex- planations of the commandant at Tama tavo, to which ha replied that " he had no explanation to give either to the French or | En...
EDUCATION AND DEAN DAVIES. To the Editor of the Observer. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 2 September 1845
EDUCATION AND DK AN DAVIES. To the Editor of the Observer. Sin,-The petition of the Clergy within thc Deanery of Longford, with its appendix, relative to Education, deserves not only attention, but, in my opinion, a searching scrutiny into thc facts and statements it contains. Five hundred pounds is its prayer; its object, to show the inutility of any and every system of instruction disapproved of hy themselves ; and which docs not plant and nurture in the ductile mind of youth tho ripened bigotry of old agc. Theyfearlhat the yoke oferror mnysic too loosely on the shoulders of tho rising genera- tion, and that all creeds rony, in harmony with the enlightened spirit of thc age, amalgamate on the comprehensive principles of christianity. I For myself, though a warm friend to the exten- sion of knowledge, circumstances, both past and present, incline mo to look with a dubious eye over such documents as the one newly sp ring front «lie Longford Deanery. We ali know with what facility im...

TEXAS. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 2 September 1845
TEXAS. HuMOun, which usually outsteps the pro- gress of events and scatters its thousand voices, has so often warned these colonies of corning war that wc cease to expect what is delayed so long. The vanity of thc French army, wounded by defeat and excited by more recent, though unequal victories, will perhaps bc restrained by the pacific policy of their king. At present the chief danger lies on thc opposite side of thc Atlantic, where a party has gained the as ccndant, ostentatious of enmity to Great Britain. The rancour of the republican press might not bc proof of the nation's mind, but the chiefs of the people since they are carried to their seats by the flow of popular favour, must he taken as an in- dex of the general mind. "When the Presi- dent of the Congress charges the British nation on a question like the Slave Trade with disguising participation by the show of aversion, the whole world is conscious of the lie, and Sir Robert Peel did honor to himself and his country when...

HYDROMETERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 2 September 1845
' HY'DIIOMF.TKRS. The following- remarkable example of tho commercial advantages which have resulted from thc inc of the hydrometer, is men- tioned by M. Dupin, in hi« work entitled, MetluuûijM appliquée aux Arts. Brandies have, according to their greater or less de- gree of concentration, a greater or les» spe- cific gravity. Tho French, who Hrst mea- sured tlie«e degrees of concentration hy ineaii9 of hydrometers, gained tho advuntogo of being nblo to malic their brandies alway* and with certainty of those preciso degrees of strength which werj ri quired hy the dif- ferent markets to which they cirried them. The Spaniards, whoso strong full-bodied wines are eminently suited to distillation, endeavoured to enter into competition with the French in the sale of brandies; hutas they were not acquainted with the method of measuring their degrees of concentration by mean9 of hydrometers, they were obliged tr» content themselves with the following clumsy and awkward substitution. A drop ...
STATISTICS OF THE JEWISH POPULATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 2 September 1845
STATISTICS OF THE JEVISII POPULATION. TUB followiug statistics of tho Jewish pop Intion will ho interesting to our readers. They aro gleaned from a much more full account recently published by M. Bernouilli, Professor of History in the University of Basie. The total number of Jews scattered over thc world, is variously estimated ; some writers limit them to four millions of souls, while others reckon them at five, at six mil- lions, and upwards. If we admit that the number of Jews out of Europe is equal to the number of those who inhabit this portion of the globe, the sum total must be at least six millions, as we cannot reckon tho Euro- pean Jewish population as less than threo millions. The numerous differences which present themselves between tho movements of tho Jewish and Christian population, are worthy of attention. lu the Prussian states, the Jewish popula- tion, from 1?22 to 1840, increased from 144,737. to 194,558. If we subtract from this number 410, gained by tho annexat...

USE OF TEA AND COFFEE. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 2 September 1845
USE OF TEA AND COFFEE. Ono of tho roost remarkable facts in the diet of mankind is the enormous consump- tion of toa and coffee. Tho slightly stimu- lating and narcotic properties of these sub- stances do not seem sufficient to account for tho fact, that upwards of 800,000,000 of pounds of these articles are annually con- sumed by the inhabitants of the world. Il has, however, been found that they contain a certain activo principle, which, though small in quantity, is yet supposed to form an important part in tho human economy. This principle is called theine in tea, and caffeine in coffee, but they are identical in composi- tion ; and what is very remarkable, this Banio principle has been discovered in the Paraguay tea, a species of holly used for infusion by the natives of South America ; and a princi- ple very similar, called theobromine, is found in the nuts from which cocoa and chocolate aro prepared. Now, according to Liebig, there is found in the blood a principle call- ed by...
