After reading all the above, wo can but wonder that application has been made by the manager of this school, and successfully, for aid from the Treasury under tlie Minutes of 1846-7. j Where could be the necessity ? Would that the j noble-minded rector of King's Somborne had him- self manifested that perfect faith in his own plans which he cannot .but have excited in the mind of all his readers ! The moral power of the experi- ment i? henceforth weakened. But be it recol- lected that all tho above details relate to the period during which the school, without any ad- ventitious aid, has been strictly self reliant. (To be continued.)

About . three weeks ago, a handsome specimen-of the feline genus and a young one were removed from Sibsey to a new resi- dence in Boston. The old one -remained at its new liome until tho kitten .became able , to feed itself in. about a fortnight, when it left the house and rei ur ned to. its- oui abode ?. at Sibsey, a distance of five miles. What makes the occurrence the more remarkable I is, that the cat was conveyed from one place [ to another Jin a closed basket.

WHALING INTERESTS IN CALIFORNIA. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 20 February 1851

.' WHALING INTERESTS IN CALIFORNIA. ijNo^párt'ójr'tHie earth's surface and its ocean's shores presents so fair and inviting an oppor- tunity for being made the depot of vast oper- ations in the whaling business, as our own i California. The. bay of San Francisco has ¡ been marked out by the hand of nature aa the great rendevous .for that fleet of whale ! men which/as surely as men follo w in the track of fortune which great combinations of I circumstances indicate, will one .day hanVand sail from this place. California is the only State on the Pacific side-it might, perhaps, be said the only one around the circuit of the > immense ocean or within its borders, possess- ing enough of liberty, of enterprise, of skill, of energy, of capital, of position/ of popula- tion of the true spirit which ensures success, to change the whole aspect of this branch of commerce. And that this business will be. changed, not in kind, but in the location of its emporium, appears evident. The great Le...

BUSH FIRES. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 20 February 1851

BUSH »FIRESi ..Yesterday forenoon was a period of extra- ordinary heat, and we are sorry to say, of calamity, also. The heat from ll o'clock, a.m., until after- noon was 'most oppressive ; a hot wind blowing from the N. N. West, in a most furious manner. At this time the thermometer stood for an hour by. one glass at l l 2 * while by two others it reached 116° in the sun. The dust in the streets was most suffocating, penetrating the smallest cre vices, and'filling the houses. Tn consequence of the excessive heat and bush fires, the last day of the races was postponed, until this day, when they duly came oft. About 12 o'clock a bush fire in the vicinity of the town began to rage with tho utmost fury. It'sprang up near the race course, and through the violence of the hot wind, threa- tened to consume the booths, and to envelop the Eersons who hod assembled there in the flames, efore time could be afforded them to escape. By a slight change of wind, however, the racers es* 'caped; but ...

Whatever we may have said, it has not heen, toa sinful extent, about " ourselves." But, "there's a time for all things;" and it seems to us that the present is no inop- portune time for us to indulge in this editorial folly. In. the first plaoe, we are not likely to hit on a time when, the paucity of other subjects will more,fairly warrant us in talking on our own suocess. In the second place, we have many friends, "good and true," who, we dare say, i think it is high time for them to know ! something of our condition and prospects. I And in the third place, we, like all weak flesh, have a few unhappy acquaintances, who take. an equally lively, though not exactly a kindred interest, in our progress, I 'We-'shall, for once, indulge all-ourselves, our friends, and our enemies. , It is nowJust one nionth sinc...
