Select Poetry. RAILWAY LINES. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 18 November 1846
Select Poetry —0— RAILWAY LINE BY W. GASPEY. &nbsp; Oh ! we live in an age of improvement, Old things are forgot like a dream, And every new-fangled movement Its origin traces to steam! To excite our surprise wonders cease, &nbsp; And charity sure is failing, &nbsp; When the very promoters of peace Have grown quite addicted to railing ! Fresh railroads are forming by dozens, Predestined to bring, in their train, Visitations of green country cousins, To inflict purgatorial pain. And this wonderful Intellect's march Is making our journeys laconic, For we travel through ways that are arch, And the roads are all turning ironic ! The box-seat and ribands forsaking, Our safety to guards we consign, Who, in spite of teetotal pledge-taking. Get frequently over ithe line ! Better ride with a " whip" that is " sewn-up," Than to-risks more alarming surrender, And, like girls that are love-sick, be blown-up, Because we're attached to the Tender ! And for towns scarcely f...

ENGLISH INTERESTS IN THE EASTERN ARCHIPELAGO. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 21 November 1846
ENGLISH INTERESlTS IN THE EASTERN ARCHIPELAGO. (From the Spectator, London.) In the complaints raised, and the jealousies sought to b;e inspired, regarding the policy pursued by the Dutch Government in respect of English interests in the Eastern Archipelago, there is a good deal of exaggeration. It is not indeed broadly asserted - as would have been done a few ybars ago-that Dutch intrigues have led to the murders of native friends of an English alliance in Borneo, or the attempts upon the life of Mr. Brookes. These odious imputations are not broadly uttered; but. they are covertly hinted at. The Dutch Government and their agents in the East are entitled to be exculpated from all such calumnious insinuations. Nevertheless, the English Government has good reason to complain of the policy systematically pur sued towards its subjects in that remote region by the Dutch authorities. Java, occupied by the British in 1811, when Holland had ceased for a time to exist as a nation, was restor...
GREAT FIRES IN LIVERPOOL. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 21 November 1846
:GREAT FIRES IN LIVERPOOL. (From Bell's Messenger, July 18.) 'We regret to learn that -this Important town -has been within the last !two days the-scene of two de structive fires, involving the loss of an immense amount of valuable property. A letter from the. spot dated .yesterday afternoon, .ontains .the fol *lowing. particulars.:- "Liverpool within the last few hours liasbeen? visitld'with two melancholy disasters-Ogden's iron foundry, Sefton-street, near the Brunswick .Dock, being the scene of one; the massive.pile of building known as the Apothecaries' Hall, that of the other. This latter, it will be remembered, suffered a similar misfortune a few months ago, '" The fire in Softon-street broke out at ten minutes to nine last night, and burned with intense fury. Eight engines were brought to bear upon it as speedily as possible, and by midnight the destructive element was subdued, .having been confined to the three stories from the top. The damage, as. we hastily gather, is esti...

The letter is dated London, June 30th, and th6 following af footing extract from it, relative to his Grico's departure from the Colony will, we are sure, be most acceptable to our readers : " How loving is that good people the Almnighty has been pleaonsed to call me to direct I To see them coming round and round the ship, following us out farther and yet farther,, loath to separate from me. A heart thust be of stone not to be sensible to such affection and respect.

ANTI-CORN LAW LEAGUE. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 21 November 1846
ANTI-CORN LAW LEAGUE. (From the Atlas, July 4.) The Anti-Corn Law League is to be forthwith dissolved; but not wholly so until 18-49, so as to be coeval with the entire repeal of the Corn Laws. This was resolved upon at a meeting at Manchester on Thursday. Its operations and functions are at once to be suspended, and its affairs wound up with as little delay as possible; but It is distinctly under. stood that, in case of future emergency, the League should be called into active operation without delay; otherwise the suspension of its operations to continue till its dissolution. A gratuity of 10,0001. has Leen granted to Mr. George Wilson, the indefatigable Chairman, in acknowledgment of his services. The meeting in question was addressed in eloquent terms by the Chairman (Mr. George Wilson), Mr. Cobden, Mr. Bright, and others. Mr. Cobden said, in con. cluding his address,-" Well, gentlemen, we are going to dissolve; those good spirits must disband, and I am not quite sure that it is...
THE TRIUMPHS OF ELECTRICITY, [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 21 November 1846
TIE TRIUMPHS OF ELECTRICITY. (From the Adelaide Observer.) This mysterious agent, so recently loosed from swaddling clothes, is marching forward as much more rapidly than steam can do as the eflorts of the mind outstrip the powers of matter. That which steam can effect is niatter of calculation, but eleotri city is the realization of the eastern talisman-the fairy wand of our nursery tales. No bound can be set to it-greater distance demands not greater ,time. It is not even compelled, with Puck, to bar gain for so many minutes to "put a girdle round about the earth." And can this subtle power be harnessed by man, and driven with whip and rein along a certain *track P It has been played with long-lhas gently ambled round a circle in the drawing-room for the amusement of little children, who have laughed and clapped their hands as the courteous monster passed them;, but by degrees theory has been drawn into practice, and electricity shows itself able to perform almost all the business...
British Extracts. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 21 November 1846
Efiifffti3 1 Extracts. -o SINiINa OF A SUIP IN THE TLNDON DocKs. -On Sunday morning the barque Eweretta from Sydney, which was hauled into the London Docks the pre ceding night, sank in the great basin alongside the north quay, and opposite No. 3 warehouse. This very serious disaster occasioned great alarm in the dock, and also in the surrounding district. It appears that some of the Custom-house officers in the other vessels s:w the Eweretta settled down, and they raised an alLrm. The only persons on board were two apprentices and a revenue officer, and they had scarcely reached the quay in their night clothes when the ship went down. Information of the occurrence having been forwarded to the dock master and Mr. Chandler. the superintendant of the estab lishment, they immediately engaged upwards of 100 labourers, andl in a few minutes afterwards they were busily engaged, some in getting out the cargo, principally bales of wool. and others in pumping the water out. The labourers con...
India. KOTE KANGRA. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 21 November 1846
-o KOTE KANGRA. (From the Friend of India, June 11.) We take the opportunity of the issue of our present " Extra," to announce the surrender of Kangra, which was evacuated on May 28th. The heavy guns commenced the ascent of the Mulkera Hill, in progress to their respective batteries in tile town, on the morning of tile 28th. This fact became known for certain to the garrison about ten o'clock. They ceased their fire, nnd sent a message to Denah Nath, to intimate their inclination to surrender if their lives were guaranteed them. The agent to the G. G. declined any other terms but an unconditional submission. An hour was allowed them to come out, and lay down their arms. Within this time, about three o'clock, the Killedar (Soondur Singh), accompanied by his Sirdars, came out; they laid down their arms at the gate, and were made over to Captain Goddard, commanding the town, who had previously received all necessary instruc tions; by him they were immediately conducted to the presence ...
