THE HOBART-TOWN COURIER. SATURDAY, JANUARY 26,1828. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 26 January 1828

THE H O BART-TOWN COURIER. SATURDAY, JANUARY 26,1828. Mach has been said, and more has been written on the public, or what is rilled the political economy of this colony. " We shall never prosper, say they, -nntil we can establish a staple export. Mimosa ex- tract will not succeed, sums have already been lost by the «sport of wool, and as to wheat it will never pay. The colony is in a bid state, there is no money .vary dollar is sent out of the country." These are Übt expressions we hear every day, and littered by persons who to all appearance shew, that though the colony in their estimation be in a bad state, they t h em solves, taken individually, are very comfortably situ- ated. We arc indeed much inclined to dissent from to« ti nth of these dogmas, and we will analyse them singly. We bave on former occasions shewn that the slow success of the mimosa extract in the English market, is common to the introduction of all new dis- covered articles, however excellent, unless duly pa- t...

RURAL ECONOMY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 2 February 1828

RURAL ECONOMY. IÎRAPING.-Experienced husbandmen think, that wheat should he cul down some days before it is fully cr dead ripe, as the grain hardens well in the sheaf and the sample is often better. The harvest thus begins 'earlier, and its labours nre more equally distributed.-Barley ought likewise to be cut before it is too ripe, otherwise the straw becomes brittle, which occasions much loss, by the heads breaking off. Though oats are reckoned a hardy grain, yet the more early varieties, being liable to damage, from high winds or from exposure to much wet,ought tobe cut, as soon as they are nearly ripe, in order to lessen the risks to which they are exposed. Beans should be cut down, as soon as the eye has attained a deep colour, and if the weather be dry, made up as soon as possible into sheaves. The straw will thus be of tripple value and the grain of superior quality. I Where the crop is lodged, whatever may be the state t of the ripeness, it should be immediately cut down | mo...

THE H O BART-TOWN COURIER. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 2,1828. -000 There arc no duties more incumbent on a publie journalist than to caution his readers against danger to draw evil from its lurking place, and disclose its deformity-and in a word, to point the moral and im- prove the passing events of d10 time. We are indu- ced to remark this, from the late trials and other cir- cumstances which have transpired as connected with Macquarie harbour. We call upon our readers to read with attention the circumstances detailed in our last page, concerning the exeoution on Wednesday morning. We arc indeed convinced, if the horrors of Macquarie harbour, and the misery endured by its wretched inmates, were fully and generally known throughout Van Diemen'« land, or in Eugland, that reflection would be roused in the heart of ,màny who now yield in the hour of excess, and moment of temp- tation, that the hand of sin would sometimes be ar- rested, and that dread would in part effect what kindness and per...

LITERARY NOTICES. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 2 February 1828

LITERARY NOTICES. POMPB//.-There has recently been discovered a very grand edifice, which the antiquaries de- nominate a Pantheon. Its form is a parallel- ogram. The entrance opens in one of the nar- rowest sides of the narrowest sides of the building, j ia the corners arc three small ropnu. In the middle one or two nitches have been examined, in which were found statues of Tiberius and Livia. Unluckily those statues, though very beautiful, are without arms. In that of Tiberius some traces are still dis- coverable of the toga with 'which he was clothed. The principal wall is ornamented with paintings very well preserved, which represent the history of I Romulus and Remus, at the moment when they were suckled by the wife of the shepherd Faustulus. In the gallery which conducts to the Pantheon, and in the room which served as a robing room, are tablets of marble with different numbers. In the.numerous paintings of this edifice are representations of hunts, I marine monsters', and diff...

The potatoes also are wonderfully improved by the late rains, and appearances   are at present in favour of a very fair crop, despondency seems to decrease. The premature death of the late amiable Miss Gunning, seems to have cast a gloom over the whole district.
