THE BEST POINT OF LAW. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 19 November 1824

THE BEST POINT OF LAW. A Lawyer once attended the assizes, Where most get blanks, and very few get prizes ; Where some who gain a Ganse, yet lose their money ; And that you know is any thing bufc 'funny. Now to our lawyer:-He, alas! was poor! Yet that he<had two suits was very sure, I Though both were bad : thcone upon his back Once had been, but was now no longer black j It look'd as having met with much mishap : Repose it wanted, or at least a nap".

To the Editor of the Hobart Town Gazette. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 19 November 1824

To the Editor of the Hobart Town Gazette. MR. EDITOR,-In your Paper of the 5th instant, I find that the tanners in England object to the wattle-bark, on account of its imparting a reddish brown to the leather. ( Let me, how- ever state, that a great proportion of the essence taken by Mr. Thomas Kent to England was of she-oak; which, it is well known will make the leather nearly     red ; and, in the second place, permit me to observe, from good authority, that the boilers used by that Gentleman were of iron ; consequently the vitriol drawn from them by the ooze would make it very dark. Ali persons who intend to extract should be provided with boilers made of either tin, copper or bell-metal ; and every tanner should be particularly careful not to make his ooze too strong at first. By merely at- tending to these two rules, and not em- ploying she-oak bark, an essence will be obtained from the wattle that shall tan paler than any tanned by unmixed English oak...

THE NUMBER SEVEN. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 19 November 1824

THE NUMBER SEVEN. ' Seven is composed of, the two first per- fect numbers, equal and unequal-three and four ; for the number two consisting of repeated unity, which is no number, is not perfect; it comprehends the primary nu- merical triangle, or trine, and is square or quartile; conjunctions considered by the favourers of planetary influence as of the most benign aspect. v ïn six days creation was perfected, the 7th was consecrated to rest. On the 7th of the 7th month a holy observance was or- dained to the Chaldees of Israel, who fast- ed 7 days and remained x7 days in tents the 7th year was directed to be a sabbath of rest for all things ; and at the end of 7 times 7 years commenced the* grand Jubi leei-'every 7th year the land lay fallow; every 7th year there was* a general release from all debts, and all bondsmen were' set free. From this law may have originated the custom of our binding young men to 7 year's apprenticeship, and of i punishing incorrigible offenders, hy transpo...

To the Editor of the Hobart Town Gazette. Green Hills, Nov. 8, 1824. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 19 November 1824

To the Editor of the Hobart Town Gazette, Green Hills, Nov. 8, 1824.   SIR, - When in my advertisement of the 24th July, I said that spirits and Wines were enervating, the observation was secured by the proviso of their being "untimely introduced." It did   not oppose the argument, that they may be attended with effects as salutary as any other beverage, within the bounds of moderation. The price alone, I   apprehend, should render them obnoxious to the finances of the husbandman, as it was to him I more particularly addressed the remark.   Doyou not conceive it possible, Sir, that a man may exert himself to the full extent of his powers, and yet be   "falsely" stimulated? If I mistake     not, an age has hardly gone by when   the depreciation of grain, rendered the production of it almost farcical. If at that critical period, the agriculturist had called in the aid of spirits and...

We observe with considerable inter- est, that a canal from the town rivulet is in progress from the back of Presnell's, through the rock in front of the Colonial Hospital, and directly down the middle of the lower end of Collins-street on to the Government slaughter-house. One object of this improvement as well as al- teration, is to afford sufficient room for the new market-place about to be esta- blished on that spot of ground which is immediately opposite the new Naval Office, and to enable Government to fill up all those hollow places which might prove both unsightly and ...

To the Editor ofthe Hobart Town Gazette. SIR,-Observing a very erroneous state- ment íespecting tiie price of biead in your Paper of the 19th instant, I beg to oiler a j few remaiks, which, I ti ust, will erase from ¡ the minds of the Public that false impres- sion such incon ect assertions ai e calculated j to make, paiticularly when advanced be- yond doubt by a ¡espectable feeder of many mouths. With respect to the assize being fixed at 9d., it most certainly was,-but with the express understanding that the baker was to receive Bank bills and dol- lars in payment, for which alone he could replace his stock ; but if for the accommo- dation of individuals he felt disposed to re- ceive Colonial notes, he undoubtedly was justified in receiving them at a rate which he considered placed him in the same situation as if he had been paid in dollars. Where is the tiadesman in Hobart Town that does not make a dif- ference in like manner. The Gentleman calls forth the attention of Government,...

TEN YEARS AGO. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 26 November 1824

- TEN* TEARS AGO. Ten years ago, ten years ago, Life was to us a fairy scene ; And the keen blasts of worldly woe ? Had sered not then its pathway green. Youth and its thousand dreams were ours, - Feelings we ne'er can know again ; Unwithered hopes, unwasted poweis, And frames unworn by mortal pain. Such was the bright and genial flow Of life with us-ten yeais ago ! Time has not blanched a single hair That clusters round thy forehead now ; Nor hath the cankering touch of care Left even one furrow on thy biow. Thine eyes are blue as when we met, In loves deep ti uth, in earlier years ; Thy cheek of rose is blooming yet, Though sometimes stained by secret tears, But where, oh where's the spirit's glow, That shone through all-ten years ago? I, too, am changed-I scarce know why Can feel each flagging pulse decay ; And youth and health, and visions high, Meit like a wreath of snow away ; Time cannot suie have wrought the ill ; Though worn in this world's sickening strife, In soul and for...

CIVIL-SIDE. Kemp & Co. v. Basstian. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 26 November 1824

CIVIL-STDE. Kemp &., Co. v. Basstian. This was an action brought for £50, the alledped damages sustained, by a breach of contract. The facts may be briefly stated thus : In the month of May last some goods Deidiiging to the plaintilfs were som at public auction by their agent to the defend- ant, who entered into a Written agreement to pay the amount at the expiration of three months, in wheat at five shillings per bush- el. When that time .expired, the plaintiffs demanded payment in wheat, and refused to accept the defendant's tender of dollars in discharge of his contract, as wheat had become worth ten shilling per bushel. The Court, however, ruled that as the plaintiffs had through their agent carried out into the mai gin of the bill of parcels £13. 8s. 9d. currency, as the amount ofthe wheat contracted for, and as they had sued on the contract, they were only entitled to that amount,-for which a verdict was gi- ven accordingly.

DEATH OF LORD BYRON. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 26 November 1824

DEATH OF LORD BYRON. Lord BYRON died of a fever, at Misso-   longhi, on the 19th of April last. Deeply as we deplore this awful and abrupt ter- mination of the noble Poet's splendid ca- reer, we are unable to express our feel- ings without the danger of guilty compro- mise on the one side, and illiberal and of- fensive qualification on the other. The Elements of Lord Byron's literary charac- ter are too strongly marked for any mid- dle course: no homage can be too ar-   dent for his genius ; no reprobation too strong for the uses to which it was too fre- quently applied. Happily in this, how- ever, as in many other cases, we can ad- vantageously separate the Man from the Poet, and contemplate a private charac-   ter, in which some faults of too frequent occurrence among men of his rank, were contrasted by virtues and qualifications of   an order rare in any rank. The cause to which Lord Byron devoted his latter years, his fortune, ...
