INDIA. BRITISH MILITARY DARING. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 9 September 1845
INDIA. llRITISIt MILITARY DARING. FROM India, the most startling announce- ment is, thnt n gnilnnt officer is under ar- rest for on« of those dnring nets of chivalry that have done so much to establish the 1 prestige of British nrms in Hindostnn. Colonel Wallace lcd n regiment nnd ord- nance down n precipice, and through «a mountain pnss, in pursuit of the enemy, nnd succeeded in a decisive conj> ile main : he did it in excess of orders-orders re- ceived too late; and his success has stulti- fied the reason why he wns forbidden to attempt nn " impracticable" and " visio- nary" achievement. The scene of the ex- ploit (ns with some of tiie fcuts nscribed hy trndition in Scotland to his great namesake) lins been named nftcr him ; and if thc sen- tence of the Court Martial cannot bo anti- cipated-so inscrutable arc the ways of Courts Martial in India--the judgment of posterity is foreshadowed in this instinctive fixing of the new tradition to the spot. The object of Colonel Wallnce, ...
FRENCH MISSIONS IN CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 9 September 1845
I FRENCH MISSIONS IN CHINA. We have received letters from Macao, containing- intellig-enco which, if it be con- firmed, will produce a sensation in Europe, and do great honour to the French Mission in China. It is nothing less than the abo- lition of the rigorous edicts which forbid the Chinese to embrace and practise Christianity. We know that llieso edicts after having been revoked under tho reign of tho Emperor Khan-Hi, were again brought into force about a century ago on the advice of the Tribunal of Rites ; and until these latter times, at least, havo been put into execution by tho Chinese magistrates with tho utmost rigour. Thus Christianity has found a dou- ble obstacle to its introduction into the middle empire ; for on one hand were the laws which interdicted foreigners from pene- trating into the interior of the empire ; and on tho other hand, tho Chinese, who, if left to themselves, would be inclined to embrace the religion of the Gospel, are restrained bv tho pains and p...

THE FRENCH IN TAHITI. WE have been requested to publish the fol- lowing acknowledgment of the receipt of the petition to thc Queen, respecting Tahiti, which was agreed to at a public meeting held in Sydney in June, 18-14.

NEW NORFOLK MURDER. SUPREME COURT. CRIMINAL SITTINGS. Before His Honor Mr. Justice Montagu and a Civil Jury. FRIDAY, 5TH SEPTEMBER. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 9 September 1845
MW* NORFOLK MURDER. SUPREME COUIIT. CRIMINA!, SITTINGS. Before His Honor Mr. Justice Montagu anti a Civil Jury. FRIDAY, 5TH SKPTEMBEU. The interest which thc pending trinl of Eliza Benwell has excited in thc public mind, was fully exemplified this morning by a crowded Court, and by the great anxiety manifested by thc spectators. Precisely nt ten o'clock his Honor took his seat, and Elisa Benwell was placed at thc bar. She is a middle-aged woman, and although very neatly dressed, is by no means of prepossessing appearance ; neither did she evince any trepidation or emotion at her situation, leaning, till a chair was given to her, carelessly against thc hack of the dock. The information was very long ; it first recited, verbatim, the several counts of the information against Lockwood, Gomm, and Taylor ¡ then their conviction on the first count, (that charging them with suffocating thc deceased with a handkerchief) ; and con- cluded with charging the prisoner at the bar with feloniousl...
THE INQUISITION IN THE PROBATION DEPARTMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 9 September 1845
THE INQUISITION IN THE PROBATION DEPARTMENT. ACCORDING to Regulations which have just &nbsp; been printed for the guidance of the officers &nbsp; in the female branch of the Probation De- partment, the Superintendent is required to keep a registry, not only of general visitors, but of the visits of his personal friends, which will be open to the inspection of the head of his department. We ask where in what corner of the British do- minions in what public establishment in what prison, was ever the head of the estab- lishment subjected to such a degrading in- quisition ! No friend must call upon him - no one must partake of his hospitality, but the Superintendent must tell the Comptrol- ler-General of it ! " The names and address (says the regulation) are to be recorded in the book referred to." This is very like the times in which a spy system was avowedly kept up through the length and breadth of the land ; but we did not expect to find anything of the kind sanction...
NEW PENAL COLONY. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 9 September 1845
NEW PENAL COLONY. IN our Inst number we lind not space to admit thc following passage from an article in thc Spectator, which has since been pub- lished at length by thc Courier: "Penal colonies in which convicts arc subject to coercion having proved a failure, Lord Stnnley proposes to try the experi- ment of a colony in which the convicts shall go at large, and be indeed the only denizens. Its site is to bc thc north-west coast of Australia ; thither arc to bc removed all the surplus felonry of Van Dicmcn's Land, who having condnctcd themselves with tolerable propriety will accept of n pardon on con- dition of removing to the new settlement ; thither are to be removed English delin- quents, who, to escape a worse fate will voluntarily banish themselves to this Stan lcy-Utopin ; and, lest the generation of thieves should become extinct, thc pnrishes to which these modern anti-types of the founders of Rome have belonged, are to be invited and encouraged to send out their families to ...

THIRST QUENCHED WITHOUT DRINKING. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 9 September 1845
TIimST QUENCHED WITHOUT DRINKING' IT may not be generally known to our read- ers that water, even salt water, imbibed through the skin appeases thirst almost as well as fresh water taken inwardly. Jn il- lustration of this subject, a correspondent has sent us the following abridged quotation from a ' Narrativo of Captain Kennedy's losing his Vessel, and his Distresses after- wards,' which was noticed in 'Dodsley's Annual Register for 1769.' " I cannot con- clude without making mention of the great advantage I received from soaking my clothes twice a day in salt water, and putting them on without without wringing. It was a considerable time before I could make any of the people comply with this mea- sure, although from seeing the good effects produced, they afterwards practised it twice a day of their own accord. To this discovery I may with justice attribute the preservation of my own life, and six other persons, who must have perished if it had it nut been put in use. The hint was ...
