TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 19 February 1841

TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. SIR,-I havo been incontinently startled from my pro- priety by certain "statements" in your journal, emanating from two learned disciples of Esculapius, and-" Heaven save the mark !" tending, in my humble opinion, not only to a breach of the peace, but a breach of the body also. One of these healers of wounds, und assuagers of ailments, not content with the practice of his profession, would valiantly have some small taste of the practice of the duello ; he is, after the manner of the renowned Sir Lucius OTrigger, or that congenial fire-eater, Major ¡Mc Turk,extremely anxious to smell gunpowder, and would fain put'a ball into the epigastrium of his fellow-craftsman. But what, Mr. Editor, may I ask, has this terrible commotion to do with us,the public? What matters it to you or me, to Mr. Smith or Mr. Thomson, who cuts off the leg of Sam Simpkins, or the big toe of Timothy Turnfoot r Is the public, many headed monster though it be, to sit in judgment upon...

INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 19 February 1841

INDIA. " Quetta, lOth My, 1840-My last letter to you despatched from this, was dated the 8th, and since that I have scarcely been in bed. Every succeeding tour was bringing us fresh rumours of an advancing foe, and we have been incessantly under arms day and night. Yesterday morning the enemy hove in sight with swarms of cavalry and infantry round the slope of a hill to the westward. Their number was esti- mated at 5,000 and they took up a long line of en- campment, partially investing the town. The pre- vious evening I went through the ceremony of erecting on the citadel the Union Jack, Shah Soojah's flag, and the regimental color, which were placed upon the highest bastions amidst a general salute and three hearty cheers. The enemy in the morning sent a party of cavalry to cut lucerno in a field, some dis- tance from their camp, and within range of our guns. Bosanquet went out with 30 of his suwars to drive them off, but a body of their infantry advanced and com- menced a fire, wh...

PORTRAIT OF MEHEMET ALI. (By a French Artist.) [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 19 February 1841

PORTRAIT OF MEHEMET ALI. (Hy a French Artist.) Mehemet Ali, notwithstanding the white beard which falls down upon his breast, has a look of almost juvenile vigour about him. He is a little old man, with a quick, piercing, and cunning eye, regular physiognomy, and very white teeth. (I found out, however, that for these he is indebted to an English dentist.) His shoulders are slightly bent, but all his motions are characterised by great vivacity. His step is quick and lively. He is fond in walking of assuming an attitude something like that which was usual with Napoleon, that is to say, he walks with his hands behind him, and generally grasps a sabre, holding it horizontally at his back. Nothing in the per- son of the Viceroy recalls the idea of those Asiatics, filled with meditation and sluggishness, of whom you seo so many among the Turks, who may be almost said to be all of that character. He differs from all the people around him, not only in the qualities of his mind, but in his ...

LONDON FASHIONS FOR OCTOBER. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 19 February 1841

LONDON FASHIONS' FOR OCTOBER. Shawls.-Chalés bumoaff, a sort of juste militu, between the very large wraps of winter and tbe lighter and smaller ones of summer, composed of light-coloured cashmere, and lined with satin of a light colour, that will contrast well with the shawl. Trimming to consist of bands of plaid velvet-the capuchin tassels and cordillère correspond; remarkably elegant for carriages. Bonnets.-There is no change to signalize in the mate- rials of bonnets, nor will any take place during the month. Riding Hats.-Perhaps we ought rather to say riding bonnets, for several elegant womeu have lately laid aside the man's hat, which custom has rendered a part of eques- trian costume, and adopted, in its stead, a straw bonnet, otdemicupote form ; they are mostly trimmed with velvet. We may cite among the prettiest of these bonnels, those of Italian straw, trimmed with a wreath of oak leaves, composed of green velvet on the exterior ; knots of velviU) to correspond under the b...

LAURA BRIDGMAN—A DEAF, DUMB, AND BLIND GIRL. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 19 February 1841

LAURA BRIDGMAN-A DEAF, DUMB, AND BLIND GIRL. In a lately published Report of the Massachusetts Institution for the Blind, there appear some interest- ing details respecting a pupil, named Laura Bridg- man, who was placed in the establishment a few years since, in the deplorable condition of being blind, deaf, and dumb. She had been in this state of depri- vation ever since she was a little more than a year old, and therefore possessed no knowledge whatever, except what it had been possible to communicate through the senses of feeling and ta«te. Being in- troduced to the school of the institution, a methodic plan of instruction was commenced by means of the tangible alphabet for the blind, which led'to the most agreeable and surprising results. The extent of her intellectual and moral advancement will be learned from the following extract from the Report : "The intellectual improvement of HUB interesting being, and the progress she has made in expressing her ideas, are truly gratifyi...
