THE CABINET. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 19 February 1841

THE CABINET. * Of Dis course.-Some in their discourse desire rather com* mendation of wit, in being able to hold all arguments, than of judgment, in discerning what is true ; as if it were a praise to know what might be «aid, and not what should be thought. Some have certain common places and themes, wherein they are good, and want variety ; which kind of poverty is for the most part tedious, and, when it is once perceived, ridiculous. The honourablest part of talk is to give the occasion ; and again to moderate and pass to somewhat else, for then a roan leads the dance. It is good in discourse, and speech of con* venation, to vary and intermingle speech of the present ©ces. sion with arguments, tales with reasons, asking of questions with telling of opinions, and jest with earnest ; for it,i« a, dull thing to tire, and as we say now, to jade anything too far. As for jest, there be certain things which ought to be privi- leged from it ; namely, religion, matters of state, great 'per...

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

SYDNEY. Embarkation of the Fiftieth.-Yesterday morning, about a quarter before four o'clock, the big drum beat for muster in the barrack square, and the soldiers might soon after be seen coming from all quarters of the town to the place of rendezvous. At about five o'clock orders were given to march, and the baud commenced playing " The girl I left behind me." As the regiment advanced along George street the band played " Garry Owen," and several other popular Irish airs. Arrived at the Queen's Wharf, the first division of the men, most of whom appeared very much .affected at their departure, embarked in good order on board the "Crusader," which, in addition to the .. Lady M'Naughten," has been chartered to convey them to India. The second division will embark to-day. The " Crusa- der" has been reserved for " bead-quarters." Owing to the early hour at which the embarkation took place there were but few of the townspeople present. Adieu, brave Fiftieth! Maintain your former warlike c...

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

CHINA. THE " HELLAS."-There is a report that the pi- rates who attacked the "Hellas," have applied to the Provincial Government of Canton for a reward for their prowess ; we know not with what success« since they have no spolm opima to show, in spite of their assertion, that it was on board the " Hellas" opium-clipper, that the lamented Lord John Churchill lost his life, which, considering that Admiral Kwan and his friends have found as willing an ear for their lies at Peking, it is not unlikely may be credited by Lin and his colleagues, when recommendation! in their favour for peacocks' feathers will no doubt be forwarded to court.-Canton Preu, June 13. NEW CHINESE MAN-OF-WAR.-We hear that the new Chinese man-of-war " Chesapeake," late " Cam- bridge," has been stationed at the First Bar, as- like- wise a number of junks laden with granite ready for sinking to stop up the passage.

DISCOVERY IN VOLTAIC ELECTRICITY. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 19 February 1841

DISCOVERY IN VOLTAIC ELECTRICITY. We have received the following account of a late dis- covery in electrical science from a correspondent : *« One of the greatest discoveries of the ptesent or any former age has been achieved by the genius of the Hon. Mr. Mullins, late M.P. for Kerry-one which I hesitate not lo assert equals in brilliancy the great disco- very of the Alkaline metals by Davy, and in the import- ance or its results, and the utility of ils applications, far exceeds it. Mr. Mullins is already known as the inventor of various scientific instruments, but more particularly of the voltaic arrangement which bears his distinguishing appellation of the ' Sustaining Battery'-the consequence I of a fair induction from certain facts previously ascer- tained and made public by Porrett and Becquerel, and which, without any disparagement of the constant battery I invented by Daniel, is, I believe, generally admitted to | be superior toit in simplicity of arrangement, economy, and po...

THE COURIER. Strenue et Prospere. HOBART TOWN, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 19. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 19 February 1841

THE COURIER. Stremte et Prospere. HOBART TOWN, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 19. Ws have received advices from New Zealand, both j from the Bay of Islands and Port Nicholson-from j the former, to the latter end of November, and from the Company's settlement, to the 2d of February, from which place the Lord Sidmouth has brought up fifty emigrants. We learn from Korarorika, that the natives in the event of any land being: taken away from the original ' English purchasers, by Captain Hobson's commission, are determined to resume it, and are preparing to defend their right by force of arms. They have col- lected a great quantity of fire-arms and ammunition. The natives still retain the best land, nor will they ' sell it, except at the mott advantageous rates. The reign of " blankets and tobacco" is over, and they will now do no work without payment in dollars. An old colonist of Van Diemen's Land recently returned thence, tells us, that small agricultural farms of 100 and 50 acres each, where the la...

SONG. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 23 February 1841

SONG. Young thoughts have music in them, love And happiness their theme ; And music vvundcrs in the wind That lulls a morning dream. And there arc angel voices heard In childhood's frolic hours, When life is but an April day Of sunshine and of showers. There's music in the forest leaves, When summer winds arc there, And in the laugh of forest girls, That braid their sunny hair. The first wild bird that drinks the dew From violets of the spring. Has music in her song, and in The fluttering of his wing. . . . « . But the music of young thoughts too soon Is faint, and dies away, And from our morning dreams we wake To curse the coming day. And childhood's frolic liours are brief, And oft, in after years, Their memory comes to chill the heart, Aud dim the eye with tears. To-day the forest leaves are green ; They'll wither on the morrow, And the maiden's laugh be changed, ere long. To the widow's wail of sorrow. Come with the winter snows, and ask Where are the forest-bitds ; The answer i...

THE CABINET. THE CHILD OF EARTH. Fainter her slow step falls from day to day, Death's hand is heavy on her darkening brow ; Yet doth she fondly cling to earth, and say, ' I am content to die, but, oh 1 not now I Not while the blossoms of the joyous spring Make the warm air such luxury to breathe : Not while the birds such lays of gladness sing Not while bright flowers around my footsteps wreathe. Spare me, great God, lift up my drooping brow I I am content to die-but, oh ! not now I' The spring hath ripen'd into summer-time, The season's viewless boundary is patt ; The glorious sun Irath reached his burning prime ; Oh I must this glimpse of beauty be the last ?

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 23 February 1841

MISCELLANEOUS. Harvesting in Bad Weather.-lu South Lancashire, we have seeu adopted with success a mode of saving corn in unsettled weather which we recommend to our funning readers. It is this :-After the corn has been cut for about a week, and got well weathered, to take the shocks care- fully together, and to make the sheaves into a small shock, containing about a quarter of an acre of corn each, with the heads all enclosed, and the bottoms of the sheaves outside, running the little shock up to a point at the top, und covering the top with the rakings of the corn field, so as to protect it against rain. This practice has prevailed in the northern parts of Scotland for some years, and is found extremely useful in wet seasons. A stack or hut of this kind as it is "called in Scotland, may stand fora month, even in bad weather, without injury to the corn, and will be ready to carry to the slack-yard us soon as the weather becomes favourable. Care should be taken to prevent the sheddi...
