The celebrated Dr. Cheyne, in LÎ9 " Essay ou Health and Long Life," gives it as his opinion, that " nothing can be more prejudicial to tender constitutions, stu dious and contemplative persons, than lying 'ong in bed, lolling and toakmg in sheets, after one is distinctly awake, or has slept a due and reasonable time. It necessarily (he says) thickens the juices, enervates the' solid, and weakens the constitution.

REVIEW OF LATE ENGLISH NEWS. (From the Australian.J TUE prodigious advance in the princi: pies of free trade made by Sir Robert Peel in Ins coming measures ici pleasant to contemplate.

It is unjust to sacrifice any individual or individuals, for the public good, without granting compensation. You may as well take away a inan'ß land to facilitate a rail: road without paying him for it, as sud: denly abolish an old protective duty, under which a class has sprung up, and unto whom the trade has long yielded an income. Compensation to such cannot be rendered in money, but mi...

NEW ZJÎÀ.LAND, WE rejoice to learn that through the inter Terence of the Venerable Archdeacon Wil liams, fleki has promised to lay down his arms, and to restore the Flag Staff at Koror ra re ka, and acknowledge its authority.-r This isas much as the Government cari ex« peet from this heroic Chief, who, almost single handed, has twice defeated the'force sent against-him. We ask, then, is he not »itMle«! to some concessions from the Go . ci noient in return for his obédience ? We answer yest and that the. principal »ti^u!» tion should be-that the Bay of Islands should not for the future be colonized ! This would be a wise and a just measure, and one that would give general satisfaction, except,perhaps, to the late "settlers."

EXPERIMENT WITH MANURES [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Courier and Agricultural and General Advertiser — 3 July 1845

EXPERIMENT WITH MANURES THE following experiment was tried: with guano, lime, soot, and salt, orí a piece of garden ground that had borne four crops of potatoes without any ma: nure for the previous years, and which I was of course exhausted. The potatoes I put for the fifth year were the early I blues : 17 rows, each forty yards in ! length, dressed with guano, pro duced 12 bushels, of 901bs. to the bushel. 17 with lime, 0 17 soot, 14 17 salt, 14 Thus proving the salt and soot to be superior to guano, and the lime to be almost useless-except that the crop was cleaner skinned than in the other instances. The manures were all ap plied previously to the planting the po. tatoes, and the soil was afterwards drawn up to them. The crop was tolerable, but, in my opinion, frame ma: nore would have produced a greater increase. These dressings were, of course, put on with much less labour or expense than dung would have been, and in this respect they possess an ad vantage over it.-Gardners* C...
