THE CABINET. THE FUNERAL HYMN. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 6 April 1841
THE CABINET. THE FUNERAL HYMN. BV MUS. li CM AN S. Where the long reeds quiver. Where the pines make moan. By the forest-river, Sleeps our babe alone. England's field-rlowers may not deck his grave, Cypress shadows o'er him darkly wave. Woods unknown receive him, 'Midst the mighty wild; Yet with God we leave bim, Blessed, blessed child I And our tears gush o'er his lovely dust, Mournfully, yet still from hearts of trust. , Though his eye hath brightcn'd ,! On our weary way, * And his clear laugh lighten'd s Half our hearts' dismay ; " * Still in Hope we give back what was given. Yielding up the Beautiful to Heaven. And to Her who bore him, Her who long must weep, Yet shall Heaven restore bim From his pale, sweet sleep I Those blue eyes of Love and Peace again Through her soul will shine, undimm'd by pain. Where the long reeds quiver, Where the pines make moan, Leave we by the river Earth to earth alone I God and Father I may our journcyings on j Lead to where the blessed boy is gone...
SPIRIT OF THE ENGLISH PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 6 April 1841
SPIRIT OF THE ENGLISH PRESS. The geographical position of France, joined to her comparative weakness as a maritime power, evidently confine her means of aggressive warfare* to within certain limits, or to certain portions of- the continent. Accordingly, the whole history of French wars in Europe is a history of struggles for territory or for influence on her own frontier, in Flanders, in Spain, or in the north of Italy ; aud the gigantic expeditions of the wars of the empire were not dreamed of until this border warfare had ended in the subjection of all the minor adjacent states to France. The expedition to Egypt was, indeed, an exception to the prevailing rule of French policy ; but it was an unwise experi- ment, which the maritime resources of the country were unable to support. We endeavoured to show, some little time ago (Times, October 31,) that upon a wise principle of ^mutual security, a number of minor states had been interposed between France and the other great Powers of ...
NEW NORFOLK MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 6 April 1841
NEW NORFOLK MEETING. In addressing the Meeting, Captain Fenton said Whatever may be the result of (his day's meeting I can- not avoid congratulating, jon on the first opportunity ufforded us of enjoying the birthright of Butons, in ibu election of persons properly quahbed, in your opinion, to make those local improvements so essentially necessary to the prosperity of our adopttd country, and at so trifling au expense to ourselves. I am aware that some are averse to the measuie of lati, who formerly coinndul ntth mc, because the Act is not passed by a Kepiesentative Assem- bly. But while I join in that regret, I do not conceive it is either tuse or piudcnt to refuse a great good, merely because it is nut obtained exactly as tee could task , yet if we could reconcile ourselves to it,and deem it a good Ait under a Representative Assembly, surely we ought to be more thankful for obtaining it under a Government thus differently constituted. The opponents of the Bill object to it, as well...

THE COURIER. Strenue at [?]rospere. HOBART TOWN, TUESDAY, APRIL 6. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 6 April 1841
THE COURIER. Slrtnue et Wroípro. HOBART TOWN. TUESDAY, APRIL 6. His Excellency the Lieutenant-Governor, as we stated in our last number, proceeded on Thursday last to Green Ponds, and communicated to the Canadian prisoners the substance of a despatch which be had received from the Secretary of State in answer to a recommendation for a mitigation of their sentences, which ho had forwarded home soon after their arrival in the colony. We were wrong in stating- that they are immediately to procure tickets-of-leave-they will not receive them until February next, which will be two years from the time of their being' landed here, agreeably to the recommendation of -Sir John Frank- lin. Lord john Russell, before he acceded to this indul- gence, deferred to the opinion of the Governor-Gene- ral of Canada, who acquiesced in the recommendation, but conceived it impolitic that a pardon should be granted them, so as to allow of their return to Ca- nada ; and the Secretary of State impressed upon...

THE FLOODS IN FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 6 April 1841
THE FLOODS IN FRANCE. The southern provincial journals received in Paris on Sun- day, are filled with details of frightful ravages and extensive loss of life and property by the inundations. We noticed on Saturday the delay of the express courier from Marseilles, in consequence of the overflowing of the Rhone and Saone. The Saone was pouring its waters into the Rhone through the midst of the streets of Lyons. Towards the mouth of the Rhone the river had carried away its dykes, and inundated all the country round Arles. Avignon was completely inundated, the water was up to the Church of St. Aguide. The mails were first stopped at Avig- non, and then at Valence; that of the 1st, from Marseilles, had arrived, but no others. Valence, Tain, and all the towns on the Rhone, are under water. The Saone had risen even higher than the great inundations of 1812 and 1711. Maçon was under water. Verdun has met a similar fate in the north.— Atlas, November 14. &nbsp; A second inundation, a...

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 6 April 1841
MISCELLANEOUS. Paddle Wheel versus Screw.-Trial of Strength.-A few days ago the following experiment was made in the river to test the power of the Archimedean screw, as compared with the common paddle wheel, in presence of Mr. Faw- cett, the eminent steam engine builder, of Liverpool, Mr. Barnes, and other gentlemen. The Archimedes, with Mr. Smith's screw propeller, and the William Gunston tug- boat, with common paddles, were lashed together, stern to stern, but with an interval between them of from twenty to thirty feet. The former vessel has two engines of 23-horse power each ; the latter two of 20. The Archimedes was employed to tow the William Gun- ston with her engines and paddle wheels in a state of rest, and this she did with ease; the object of making this pre- &nbsp; liminary trial being to ascertain that the working effici- ency of the screw was not impaired by the relative position of the two vessels. The steam was then let on to the en- gines of the William Guns...
