OUR REJECTED CLAIM. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 5 September 1845

OUR. REJECTED CLAIM. WK reported in our last number thc failure of Mr. Hutt's motion in the House of Commons to permit thc importation of Aus- tralian grain on thc same terms ns that of Canada. The (Landan) Examiner tells us why it was rejected ; but indeed the charac- ter of the present Premier, and his known motives of action had instructed us pre- viously, and had in some degree prepared us for the fate which the motion met. Sir Robert Peel is governed, not by political principles, but by political circumstances. There is no independent Government which might threaten the peace pf Britain in our proximity, and with which we might ally ourselves. "While alone, we are weak ; and therefore our claim is resisted. Wc do not despair, however ; we believe that the day is not distant when thc mensure now refused will bo granted, and this anticipation is thc more confident that it is not founded upon nny supposition of the just principle of thc British Government. Our hope hus this for it...

THE OBSERVER. HOBART TOWN, FRIDAY, SEPT. 5. THE MAYNOOTH GRANT. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 5 September 1845

THE OBSERVEE. HOBART TOWN, FRIDAY, SEPT. 5. TUE MAYNOOTH GRANT. THE discussion of the measure for the en- dowment of Maynooth is full of instruction. It is the touchstone of parties, the gunge of their principles, and will long remain in the mind as a warning and a guide. The most humiliating spectacle is the Premier, who, amidst the laughter of thc nation, is borne on the shoulders of his political adversaries, and followed by the curses of his ancient friends. The legislator of Orangemen, the hero of Oxford, thc champion of Protestant ascendancy, is welcomed by O'Connell as a coadjutor, and destined to a niche in St. Peter's at Home ! The ingenuous recanta tion of carly errors stamps the dignity of moral courage on the character, and enno- bles an honest inconsistency ; hut the world is shocked by vacillation, which disdains thc restraints of principle, and affords no sure index of thc future. The endowment of Maynooth is viewed by dissentient parties in different lights. The advo...

GERMANY. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 5 September 1845

GERMAN V. The "commercial parliament" at Berlin concluded its sittings on the 12th, after a daily conference during the preceding fort- night. It is probable that an official report of thc proceedings will soon make its ap- pearance. Nothing positively certain is yet known respecting the entire result of the deliberations; but it is slated, on very good authority, that the 30 commercial deputies were all but unanimous in favour of the pro- tective system, and of duties of six rix-ilol lars per cwt. on foreign linen and cotton yarns and twists, with a drawback of five rix-dollars per cwt. on re-exportation. It is reported that Herr Khune, the General Commissioner of Taxes, and the strenuous advocate of the free trade system, will resign his post if the suggestions of the 30 com- mercial deputies be adopted. On the other hand, it is said that Herr Von Rönne (the president of the Hundelsamtj will take a simi lar Btep'if the protective system be not en- forced.-Alias, April 2G.

FOREIGN NEWS. FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 5 September 1845

FOREIGN NEWS. FRANCE» The Chamber of Deputies has at last made a step towards tito reduction of thu French Five per Cents.; for on Wednesday it adopted the first article of tho proposition of M. Muret do Bord, authorising' the Muster of Finance to reimburse the Five per Cent. Stuck at the rate of lOOf. for every Af. inte- rest, or to effect its conversion into Four and-a-IIalf Slock. The holders of thc new stock are guaranteed by the same article against any further reduction during ten years. An amendment of M. de Tracy, to tho effect of exempting from the measure those whose income did not exceed 5()0f., had been rejected. The measure is said to be most distasteful to the King, and the fol- lowing is in circulation as a speech made by his Majcity at a recent meeting of the Council of Ministers, at which hi« Majesty presided, and where the course, to be fol- lowed on that subject was under discussion : -" I am," said his Majesty " oposed to the conversion of the Five per Cent.

AGRICULTURE. EXPERIMENTS IN TURNIP GROWING. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 5 September 1845

AGRICULTURE. EXPERIMENTS IN TURNIP GROWING. AT the annual exhibition of the Sussex Express Root Show, which took place at Lewes, two samples of Swede turnips among the extra productions were the subject of considerable inquiry-one was grown by R, Gray, Esq., at Barcombe, with bran as a manure, the other by T. Richardson, Esq., in the same parish, with oil as a manure. Both these experiments seem to have answered the purpose. Bran was equal to yard ma- nure, and oil had an evident effect in keep- ing off the fly and nourishing tho root. Wa may here remark that no manure can be ap- plied advantageously for turnips, unless there be present phosphorus in some shape or other, for the turnip contains in itself the I chemical properties of carbon, oxygen, and hydrogen as water, nitrogen, silicon, potas- sium, phosphoros in a large degree, and a slight shade of sodium. In all cultivated .aila carbon is present in thc shape of de- cayed vegetation. . Kain water contains oxy- gen and hydrogen...

FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. AMERICA.—ARRIVAL OF THE CALEDONIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 5 September 1845

FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. AMERICA*-ARRIVAL OF THE CALEDONIA. We are in possession of the anxiously looked-for American intelligence by the mail-steamer Caledonia, which arrived at Liverpool on Wednesday, having made the passage with her usual rapidity. The news is a week later than was received by the Great fVestern, and, of course, much more valuable, as giving a correct view of the feeling in America on the important ques- tion now exciting so much interest tn both countries. The New York advices by this arrival are tri the 1st inst. The general tenor of the news ii pacific. The foreign relations of the United States very naturally engaged the attention of the press and people of the United States when the Caledonia left. The advices taken out by that ship, and the decided tone of the English ministry on the Oregon question, had been considered and commented upon, and by most of the respectable journals we find that Lord Aberdeen's view of the matter in the House of Lords was consider...

MECHANICS' INSTITUTE.   DR. BEDFORD'S SECOND LECTURE ON *' THE ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY OF ANIMALS." Reverting to the leading topics of the pre- ceding lecture - the simple and complex ma- chinery in animals - the admirable adaptation of parts - the strength and suitability of ma- terials - and the complete contrivances for the avoidance of friction in the joints - there was yet another striking feature in the con- struction of the moveable parts which had been then overlooked, viz., the varied ar- rangements of the nerves and blood-vessels in the bones, cartilages and ligaments at the joints, so as to secure a low rate of sensibi- lity. A curious instance had occurred in the practice of an eminent surgeon, in which a ligament had been divided without pain to the individual so completely, that he imagin- ed the operation had only been cutting through a piece of card. The parts most pressed and rubbed against in the free motion of the limbs are thus prevented from causing ...

The particulars of this case are as follow:   About twelve o'clock on thc night in question a gentleman and lady went to Mr. Maclean's, and as the gentleman rang the bell a man, alleged to be the prisoner, ran from the house toward the gate, pursued by the gentleman, who cried out to some persons whom he saw in Macquarie-street to stop him; these men, who were constables, did so; and     the prisoner at the bar was the man. From the evidence of constable George Brown, one of the persons who had stopped the prisoner, it was shewn on cross-examination, that from in- formation he had received from a man named Charle...

M.

It has been estab- lished by (his important demonstration that all the laws of France intended to restrain ' independence of the religions orders-tho enactments of the Parliament of Paris, from the middle of the seventeenth century, the decrees of the Legislative Assembly of 17 PO, which abolished the monastic orders, the or- ganic laws of the Co...
