THE CABINET. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 26 February 1841
THE CABINET. A Sovereign which o'er all things rolls his eye, Extends his wing, promulgates his commands, But, above all, diffuses endless good ; To whom for sure redress, the wrong'd may fly, The vile for mercy, and the pained for peace ; By whom the various tenants of these spheres, Diversified in fortunes, plaee, and powers, Raised in enjoyment, as in worth they rise, Arrive at length (if worthy such approach) At that blessed fountain-head from which they stream. The secret of happiness does not consist in avoiding all evils ; for in that case we must learn to love nothing. If there be a lot on earth worthy of envy, it is that of a man good and tender-hearted, who beholds his own creation in the happiness of all those who surround him. Let him who would be happy, strive to encircle himself with happy beings. Let the hspplf . , ness of his family be the incessant objects of his thoughts. Let \ him divine the sorrows, and anticipate the wishes of his friends, Let him inspire the fi...
MISANTHROPY. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 26 February 1841
M ISANTHROPY. Misanthropy, or that state in which one individual out of the mass of mankind presumes to hate and despise all the rest, may arise from various causes, and may take possession of minds constitutionally a good deal different from each other ; but we are pre- pared to contend that all minds in which it is con- siderably developed, must agree in one essential point. One of the circumstances which we most frequently see producing misanthropy, is personal deformity. A slight malformation of one limb is now believed to have been the chief source of this feeling in Byron. He shrunk from human society because the calf of his right leg was a little shrunk, and the heel a little raised off the ground, so that he appeared slightly in- ferior to other people. It was this ever-present sense of a trifling and merely bodily defect which gave so strange a tinge to his life and poetry. He could not endure mankind as a mass, because they for the most part had calves exactly of a match, ...
THE COURIER, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 25. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 26 February 1841
THE COURIER, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 23. I THE Fourth Report of the Van Diemen!» Land Home Missionary and Christian Instruction Society - has been published, and altogether forms a very in- teresting and satisfactory document. The zeal and perseverance of the Missionary ministers have effected -much positive good, although much undoubtedly yet remains to be accomplished. The Society, in order to ¡avoid misconception of the word "Horaei" as app «cable to this Institution, is in future to be designated " The Colonial Missionary and Christian Instruction Society," thus clearly pointing out the precise sphere .of its exertions, which are expended in'the colony in which we reside. We give our readers the entire 'Report, first premising that the object of this Society is the extension of religious instruction in Van Die men's Land, by the employment of " itinerant rniscion ?aries and other agency ; and that its funds are en- tirely expended in the colony, a fact'which does not appear to have b...

NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 26 February 1841
NEW ZEALAND. THE New Zealand Gazette complains that the Hobart Town papers are circulating lying statements about the colony (at New Zealand) being in a starv- ing condition, and that in conjunction with these re- ports, a crusade against the settlement was com- menced to carry away their population. By way of retaliation, the New Zealand Gazette proposes to send to Van Diemen's Land to engage about three hun- dred able-bodied woodsmen to work as pioneers in the New Zealand forests, and open the paths of future fortune to them. But hear what the New Zealand Gazette says upon the subject. " During the week a placard was postea, stating that the " London" was to proceed to Hobart Town to fetch about three hundred hardy woodsmen, who are not earning £78 a year, for working forty-seven hours in the week. We believe at the moment this placard was issued, there was no serious intention ; but the wisdom and the justice of turning the joke into earnest has been suggested. Three hundred men ...
POLICE. Thursday Morning, 25th February. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 26 February 1841
POLICE. Thursday Morning, tSlh February, Mr. Herbert Jones appeared on Thursday morning to make a complaint against Mr. Robert Wynne, for exciting him to commit a breach of the peace. Mr. Jones was ac- companied by Captain Foreman of the Slst, who stated that he was present at Mr. Jones's when a placard was read, signed by Mr. Wynne, a copy of which he had seen last night posted in the street on a lamp-post. Mr. Wynne was bound over to keep the peace for twelve months, him- self in £1000 and two sureties iu £500 each. Mr. Wynne again appeared to answer the summons and complaint of Herbert Jones, Esq., with having published a placard containing a wicked and malicious libel. Mr. Wynne was defended by T. W. Rowlands, who examined Mr. Jones as to the purport of the libel, and. among other interrogations, asked bim did he know Mr. Wynne, a barrister-to which Mr. Jones replied, he knew no such person, but a Mr. Wynne, an attorney at law ; whereupon Mr. Rowlands, pointing to Mr. Wynne, sai...

LOCAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 26 February 1841
LOCAL. MECHANICS' INSTITUTE.-We are much pleased to find that the apathy which, in a notice of this in- stitution in our last number, we attributed to the work- ing members thereof, does not exist to that extent which we had apprehended. We hasten to do justice to this useful and popular fraternity, lest our stric- tures should be injurious in any way to their credit, and we cannot, perhaps, do better than quote the Secretary's letter addressed to us upon this subject, in reference to the obnoxious paragraph. Committee Room, Collins-street, Feb. 24,1841. Sir,-Having observed in the " Courier" of yesterday's date, under the head of Mechanics' Institute, a paragraph, stating " that a degree of apathy, anything but creditable, has fallen upon the working members of the Institution, which is calculated to produce unfavourable results, if a reaction does not take place," I have to remark that you must have been misinformed on the subject, and to assure you that go far from this being the...
THE COURIER. Strenue et Prospere. HOBART TOWN, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 26. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 26 February 1841
THE COURIER. Strcnue it Vrosptre. HOBART TOWN. FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 26. WE bave thrown a shell amongst the Refigurantes at the Road Meeting*. Their consternation is exces- sive. Some of them however bear it much better than the rest, knowing that they have merited all that we have said in respect to their late proceedings, and that those jrho prominently put themselves forward upon public occasions are open to the unsparing strictures of the Press. Mr. Carter bat borne the re büke with great composure, and we trust that his late indiscreet and excessive zeal, which had been far more becomingly exercised at an earlier period, will not operate to his disadvantage «hen the next .batch of magistrates is made, for we understand that his Ex- cellency, like Sir John of old, is calling for another ' roll," and asking " Gentlemen, have you provided me h pre half-a-dozen sufficient men ?" Mr. Rowlands, however, is quite frantic, and threat- ens us with the innumerable woes that are to follow upon...
TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 26 February 1841
TO CORRESPONDENTS. We have not space this week to notice the recent affair in which Mr. Jones again cuts a mont disreputable figure. His " Despatch" however, has now become so notorious, that we shall have no hesitation in calling the attention of the public to the infamous and dastardly libils which Mr. Jones thought to smuggle unnoticed through the Lieutenant-Governor to the Secretary of State. The whole -colony cries out shume upon him I There is a letter signed Custigator, in this morning'» 'Tiser, which is a very neat production. 'Tiser in one of his leading &nbsp; &nbsp; lucubrations abjures personalities. Our only answer to auch drivelling productions is, that we have read similar ones directed at us in the same respectable organ from Mr. Frapptll and the late Jörgen Jorgenson, under the paid auspices of Mr. Chis- holme Anstey, as poor Jörgen himself told us. Mr. Rowlands does not shine in the same vocation. He is an admirable attorney but a very poor writer, ...

THE ARCHIMEDES. TUNE—-"Through Erin's Isle." [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 26 February 1841
THE ARCHIMEDES. TUNK-" Through Erin's Isle." A sage of yore at Syracuse, Who dealt in mathematics, Invented a machine to pump Spring water to his attics ; A wondrous screw the water drew, By spiral revolution, And did the sage's thirst assuage, Or serve him with ablution. And daily they who came that way, The mighty screw when viewing, In cup and can all blessed the man, And drank success to screwing. Long ages fled, the sage was dead, May be the pump was rotten ; The good old screw, its maker too, Were well nigh both forgotten, When a youth who sprang from British blood, One night when he was dreaming, In fancy crossed the channel's flood With screws applied to steaming ; And from his dream he took the scheme, And screwing now his creed is ; So screw along became the song Success to Archimedes I One fine spring morn, at early dawn, The youth-we couldn't find him ; He'd gone afloat in a little boat, With his magic screw behind him ; We hailed him as wc tacked about. To ask what he w...

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 26 February 1841
MISCELLANEOUS. American Women.-M. de Tocqneville, after speaking of the free and pleasurable condition of single women iu America, and contrasting with it the austerities of mar- ried life, thus continues :-.' But no American woman falls iuto the toils of matrimony as into a snare held out to her simplicity and ignorance. She has been taught beforehand what is expected of her, und voluntarily and freely does she enter upon this engagement. She supports her new condition willi courage, because she chose it. As, in America, paternal discipline is very relaxed and the conjugal tie very strict, a young woman does not contract the latter without considerable circumspection and appre- hension. Precocious marriages are rare. Tims American women do not marry until their understandings are exer cUed and ripened ; whereas, in other countries, most women, generally, only begin to exercise and to ripeu their understandings after marriage. .....* When the time for choosiug a husband is arrived, ...
