NEW GUINEA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 5 March 1831

NEW GUlNEA. We have from time to time made our traders acquainted with the various expédi- tions of the Russians to explore these seas. These voyages of discovery, it is now openly   avowed, are the forerunners of forming a settlement in some one or other of the most favourable spots. A very interesting account indeed has just appeared in a German peri- odical by Dr. Martens, secretary to the Aca- demy of Sciences at St. Petersburgh, of the late expedition to Bering's straits, Manilla,     and these seas. Dr. Martens was naturalist to the expedition, and the discoveries he has made are exciting the most lively interest among the friends of science. A writer in a lately published number of the Literary Gazette, has some observations on this subject, pointing out the propriety of the English taking time by the forelock, and securing a settlement before hand iii New Guinea, which he considers to possess ad van tages far superior to almost any Brit...

Ttie interest we take in every thing connect- ed with education induces us to notice a late ireatise on that'subject by M'r. T. Wood of Edinburgh'. The work contains' many use- j ful hints to parents and teachers, but insists ihiefly on the impropriety which still pre- vails so generally of'occupying the memory and attention of children, especially in the first attempts at learning, without calling in the aid of the understanding. Mr. Wood, therefore, particularly recommends what he calls the explanatory system, but while he would convey a correct k'nowledge of lan- guage to his pupil, he overlooks the necessi- ty of an acquaintance with the roots, either Latin cr Greek, from which the words are derived, before a full and permanent com- prehension can be conveyed to the infant mind. This is the grand stumbling block over which the cavillers at the advantage of what is termed classical learning always break their heads. More time, more anxi- ous, painful, irksome labour is bestowed t...

THE COURIER. SATURDAY, MARCH 12, 1831. The schooner Kate has arrived at Laun- ceston from Swan river, full of passengers, chiefly mechanics, also Mr. Samuel Bryan, who lately exported a cargo hillier in the William, Capt. Young. The accounts   brought by this vessel of the progress of the colony are any thing but flattering, and al- most every one was leaving it that could possibly get away. Mr. Henty had broken up his extensive establishment and was pre- paring to come to this colony. The ship Burrell, which we mentioned last week as having lately arrived at Sydney with male prisoners, who had shewn them- selves singularly insubordinate on the voyage, has arrived at Launceston, in order to load at that port with produce for London. This vessel, with her other cargo, has imported no less than 52 horses of various descriptions, which as they are not likely to meet a ready sale at Launceston, it was expected would be brought on to Hobart town, where there is a greater dem...

No .change min whatever is in contemplation. The .fullest confidence is reposed in our Administra- tion. Captain Cliff, supercargo of the Roslyn Castle, took to the Isle of France, some months ago, a large^ adventure of colonial produce, consisting chiefly of cheese and salt meat. A letter has just been received on-the subject, from a gentleman of high re- spectability at that island, who, having no interest whatever in that branch of trade, but possessing the best opportunities of forming a correct judgment, may be relied upon as a sure authority. The following is an extract : " You will become one of the great store " houses of nature in this hemisphere, if you " continue in such rapid progress.

-000 SUPREME COURT, Saturday, March !£>, 1831. Bastian v. Bridger.-The Solicitor Gene- ral for the plaintiff*; Mr. Gellibrand for the defendant. It was an action of trespass brought by the plaintiff against Mrs. Bridger of New Norfolk, for erecting a stock yard, and forming a place where she could land with her punt on a spot of ground, the pro- perty of Abraham Hands, which Bastian rented for the pui pose of establishing his punt there. Abraham Hands, as well as other witnesses, proved that the spot of ground, (a narrow strip of land on the banks of the Der ment) had been cultivated some years ago-raspberry bushes are now grow- ing on the spot ; that a gentleman who has the management of Mrs. Bridger's affairs did apply to Hands to rent the strip of land, but Hands told him he bud promised it, or had let it to the plaintiff.

The Courier. SATURDAY, MARCH 26, 1831. There has been no arrival nor departure of shipping in the Derwent during the week. The long interval which has elapsed since our last arrival from England, and the. seve- ral vessels which have been so long due, if we do not shortly have an arrival, will excite suspicion either that bad weather must have overtaken some of the ships, or that some commotion in the political affairs of Europe has induced the Government to furnibh a convoy for the protection of British vessels until they shall have passed the region of hostile interruption. As the various settlers who are sending wheat te the Mauritius under the charge of Captain Briggs of the Merope, propose ta- king sugar in exchange, the consumption and sale of which is so great in Ibis colony, we think there can be little doubt but the speculation will be successful. At all events it will afford a great relief lo the market which would otherwise have become over- stocked when Ihe proceeds of t...
