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

EXECUTION. On Wednesday morning the two miserable men George Driver aud Samuel Higgins, convicted on Thursday last of the barbarous murder of John Onely, at Macquarie harbour, suffered the awful sentence of the law. Higgins a short man, about 19 years of age, was very penitent, and the evening before his execution made a full confession of the murder. He declared to the Rev. Mr. Bedford, who assidu- ously attended bim, that about the middle of Novem- ber last, he had made a bargain with John Onely, the murdered man, to give him his allowance of five pounds of bread, in exchange for the fat to which the   latter would be entitled on what is called a delicate day, which means a day on which a prisoner, as it would appear, by turns exercises the office of cook to the rest of his gang, and which being lighter la- bour, compared with the usual discipline of the set- tlement, is called at Macquarie harbour, a day of rest and ease. Higgins having made the agreement gave Onely ...

RURAL ECONOMY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 9 February 1828

RURAL ECONOMY. VEGETABLE GÜASS,-Some time ago, wo took occasion lo inform our rerideis of the discovery of a valuable variety of tye grass by William Stickney of Kidgmoiit near Hull, and pointed out its properties as being peculiarly weil adapted lo the soil and cli- mate of Van Diemen's land. We have now the pleasure to state, that that gentleman has lately sent out specimens of the seed to Mr. Leake of the Eliza- beth River, »vho, we doubt not, will carefully propa- gate them, so as soon to place himself in a condi- tion to supply his neighbours, The following is Mr. Stickney'« description of the grass and the manner of obtaining it. " About the year 180?, I commenced cultivating several sorts of grasses. I soon discovered that ibose worthy of cultivation were but few in number. A mongst seveial sorts I was then in possession of, I found a variety of the rye grass, to have merit be- yond any other ; this variety J had selected from some particular ruh looking plants.

THE GENERAL POST. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 9 February 1828

TÏÏE GENERAL POST. Lord Byron's library has been brought to London and sold by Auction. It consisted chiefly of books sent to his Lordship by Murray, the bookseller, and fetched generally high prices, jowing to the peçu- ' , liaiity of obliterations and inseilions in the hand- writing of that great poet. The Duke of York's library was also sold by AUCJ tton, and fetched about £6,000. The Marquis of Stafford bought the new house in Stable yard, in it» unfinished state, at £70,000. The number of murders in Lisbon, owing to the defective stale of the police, has of late been rery great-eight or nine are perpetrated every week.

THE HOBART-TOWN COURIER. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 9, 1828. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 9 February 1828

THE HOBART-TOWN COURIER. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 0,1828. Much diversity of opinion has prevailed respecting the influence which the establishment of distilleries   would have on the welfare of the colony, and   now that two have been in action for some time, we may form some estimate of the general effect they will produce. Some small quantities have been shipped to Sydney, which as an export, as far as they go, must be beneficial to this colony. The enemies to their establishment argued, that they would produce two destructive effects, viz. a decrease in the revenue, by lessening the quantity of imported spirits, on which duty was paid, and an increase in the habits of drunkenness and dissipation, already   too general among the labouring community. But neither of these effects has as yet resulted. We learn on pretty good authority, that four times the quantity of spirit have been consumed in the   neighbourhood of the Macquarie river ...
