ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 2 September 1845
! ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. By the Radcliffe, we have Engl ¡sh papers to the lGthof May, which, however, contain very little news of political importance. Sir Robert Peel was successfully carrying through the Lower House his mensure for increasing the endowments of Maynooth College, and warm thanks are giTen to him for it by the Catholics generally, but inter- mingled with some question of the Premier's motives. The Roman Catholic Archbishop of Tuarn had addressed a long letter to Sir Robert, through the Freemans Journal, in which he expresses himself thus : " If the people of Ireland have not broken out into an extacy of gratitude at the endowment of the Catholic College, it will not, I am »ure, excite wonder. They arc not, nor should they be insen- sible to the justice of the measure. But if the ex- pression of their gratitude is not more enthusiastic it is on account of thc observations which accom- panied the dcvelopement of your policy. In thst, as well os the Bequests' Act, it see...

SIR,-When a stranger arrives in this colony and takes up its journals, the first thing which strikes him in their perusal, is the tone of indeco- rous personality with which, with one or two ex- ceptions, they nil indulge when alluding to public men or their measures ; nor is it unreasonable to think that he should be disposed to form an unfa- vourable opinion of thc community whose patron- age supports, whose indifference encourages, thc unhealthy influence of such periodicals. As the period of his residence is extended, he perceives that their discussions are conducted in utter for- getfulness of the obligations of truth, and of that deference which is a...

This return consists of despatches from thc Governors of New South Wales, Van Die J men's Land, South and Western Australia.

TUB following mode of testing guano is giren by a correspondent, who describes his proper naroo, in the Farmer's Magazine : Guano possesses a peculiar fleshy Bmell, not easily mistaken; but some kinds now offering ara totally devoid of this peculiarity, A. very easy made of detecting tho best sam- ple is to moisten a small portion of each with water, and place them whilst wet on a line of fresh lime, A strong smell of ammonia will instantly bo perceptible, and that which yields the strongest smell will be the best guano. FATTENING SHEEP. The effect of feeding shoep with turnips, under varying circumstances, has been ex- amined by Mr. John Morton and Dr. Lyon Playfair, with their usual scientific skill.

SCIENCE AND ART. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 2 September 1845
SCIENCE AND ART. It is rumoured that the Government has acceded to Captain Warner's preposition ; and will moor a line-of-battle ship off the Goodwin Sands for him to destroy, as he alleges he will do, with his projectile, at tba distance of five miles. One of the old hulks I in the Medway, that aro unfit for further service, will ho selected for the experiment. It seems that Captain Warneris not alane in his unenvious glory. A rival to Captain Warner has risen up in tho person of Vice Admiral thc Earl of Dundonald, who, ac- cording to his own account, in a petition presented to thc Mouse of Lords, had in- vented, years ago, a plan for destroying hos- tile fleets and butteries, doing more destruc- tion in a few weeks than £100,000,000 ex-' pended in war had ever dono ; that a com- mission had reported his plan tobe efficient, but that, at the request of the Prince Re- gent, and hoping that forbearance from war would continue, he bad refrained from making known his invention.
