EXTRACTS. ACTIVE PREPARATIONS FOU WAR IN PORT JACKSON. Lest some chance French frigate or letter of marque should, in the event of war, think fit to pay us a sort of Paul .Jones visit in Sydney, our active and most spirited officers have al- ready made preparations for giving them a warm reception such as they may little expect. Our two grand points of de- fence, Bradley'« Head and Pinchgut Island, will lie within a short time, very strongly fortified, under the talented su- perintendence of Lieutenant-Colonel Barney, and will fully command the entrance to Sydney. Last week, we observed the Government launch actively employed in taking a number of heavy guns to the battery at Bradley's Head, sufficient to blowout of the water the largest ship of the line that may attempt to force a passage. The fortifications at Pinchgut, also we are informed, will be ready in a few days to receive a similar supply of heavy guns. This looks indeed both warlike and business-like. PORT MACQUARIE.-The ...

THE CABINET. INTERRUPTED MEDITATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 23 March 1841
THE CABINET. INTERRUPTED MEDITATION. 'Tis a bitter thing in this life of pain, When the spirit has »purned its earthly chain, And sought in the bosom's still recess, The joy of its own deep loneliness ; And though the sensations which then we feet, May be rather of sorrow than of weal, It is something to think there is that in their tone. Which the spirit may drink in, all its own : It is bitter then to hear the din Of another's voice break rudely in, And mar the mirror which just has caught Some bright reflection, some cherished thought ; Some vision wove with so slight a (pell. That a sound or m word may the charra dispel, And leave no trace of its path behind, But a restless vacancy of mind : As in those fair pictures that lie imprest On a ia!:e of the mountain'» tranquil breast Shadows »o faultless in shapes and dies, That they only are not realities. Let an air but steal down the mountain's side, Let a pebble the sleeping waters divide. Let a leaf but fall from a withered spray...

INDIAN EXTRACTS. Kwruck and Nao Nehal Singh.-We hasten to piece the particulars of those somewhat extraordinary events before our subscribers, and to have the Dawk, if possible, abstain from many remarks. The position of affaira, bow ever, is much altered, and Shere Singh, who is the next heir lo the throne, will perhaps, as he is not so favourably inclined to the British as the deceased monarch, cause a little trouble. The brigade, we understand^ is to proceed in the meantime, and it is thought that the integrity of Lahore will be fully maintained. Every one is atrncl: | with surprise, and the Punjaub is perfectly tranquil ; we must leave speculations to another time. ! The Maha Raja-Khurruck Singh, after a lingering and painful illness, expired on the morning of the fith ; no sooner was the melancholy event made known to the lindaron, than the Ranee Is tur Koour, sister of Sirdar Mungul Singh, expressed her firm determination to burn, and accordingly about ti o'clock of the «ame d...
