TUE WEATHER.-From an expei tenue of up- wards of 26 years in the southern hemisphere, a respectable person of our acquaintance informs us, that at no period within nis recollection did the heat of the atmosphere approach to anything like what was experienced at eleven and twelve o'clock yesterday in Melbourne. A scorching wind from the N.N. West, sufliciently strong to, raise clouds of dust before it, set in from an early hour, although the rays of the sun were in some degree obscured by the dust, tho denseness of the atmosphere was * most intolerable ; even the. lawyers in court were induced to forego the happy'(¡ consummation of fingering their fees, by request-^ in g trie 'presiding4 Judge' to postpone proceeding«,", The thermometer of lahrenheit was aboufollO att Brentanni's in the shade, and 129 in the sun. ¡uA,t/ nine o'clock p.m. the wind shifted to the south;^ -ward, and somewhat cooled the atmosphere, but (taken altogether the day was the moat intensely ;hot of any we have ...

HISTORY AND POLITICS, DARTMOORE AND OUR WASTES, [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 18 February 1851

HISTORY AND POLITICS, DARTMOORE AND OUR WASTES. WE preach from the largest and most exalted pulpit in England. It is in the diocese of the Bishop of Exeter, but we fear he will not license our sermon, even although our ortho- doxy were certified by his Metropolitan. We must, therefore, even do without him. Nature has built our cathedral, and all the accessories of worship. She teaches us her own peculiar notions on baptism; for even as we write, her waters, consecrated by the heavens, come down to us from the clouds, and our oratory is amid the huge Tors, upheaved hy the ele- ments, to render to the Druids a temple more grand and solemn than Michael Angelo could imagine, or Wren construct. We are a thousand feet above the level of the sea ; and /, yet, lest we may be' accused of " taking too high ground," yonder peak, with its grim granite crown of fantastic rocks, is a thousand" -.feet above us. Below lies spread out the beautiful garden of this our England. Ply- mouth, .with its s...

The money was seen by Mrs. Brown in a drawer in her bed room, on Friday night, about di o'clock, at which time she had occassion to. visit it. She left the key in the drawer, and, on the following morning about 11 o'clock, the   treasure was gone.

Coroner's Gourbi An inquest was held yesterday afternoon at a Tavern at the corner of Pitt and Liverpool-streets on the body of Mrs. Jane Passfield, then lying dead at her Into residence, in the immédiate vicinity. Tho deceased, it appeared, who had passed her sixteenth summer, was a person of plethoric habits, and not much addicted to exer- cise ; between three and four o'clock on the morn- ing of the /th, she rose and dressed herself, but feeling unwell requested one Margaret Prentice^ to fetch Doctor Fullerton, who lives nearly opposite. Upon the arrival of tho medical man the patient had ceased to breathe, and his skill was conse- quently of no avail. Post mortem examination had however satisfied him that tho proximate cause of death resulted from tho presence of an undue quantity of fat in the region of the heart. Verdict, died from natural causes.
