MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 19 September 1842

MISCELLANEOUS. Safe Dependence.— A firm trust in the as sistance of an Almighty Being- naturally produces patience, hope, cneerfulness, and all other dispo sitions of the mind that alleviate those calamities which we are not able to remove. — Spectator. Peculiarity in Orange Trees.— Many of the trees iu one garden were a himdrpil vaups nU still bearing plentifully a highly-prized thin skinned orange, full of juice, and free from pips. The thinness of the rind of a St. Michael's orange, and its freedom from pips, depend on the age of the tree. The young trees, when in full vigour, bear fruit with a thick pulpy rind and an abun dance of seeds ; but, as the vigour of the plant declines, the peal becomes thinner, and the seeds gradually diminish in number until they disap pear altogether. Thus the oranges that we esteem the most are the produce of aged trees, and those which we consider the least palatable come from plants in full vigour.—^. Winter in tlus Azores. ?

THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 19, 1842. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 19 September 1842

THE UUNGEST9N COURIER. MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 19, 1842. The numerous reports recently circulated, have no doubt prepared our readers for the announce ment we now make, — that henceforth, the Launceston Courier will be devoted to the ad vocacy of Teelolalism. The first number of the new series will be issued on Monday next, which will contain a fair exposition of our principks'and intentions. The Norfolk Island experiment is about to he terminated. Sir George Oipps, who has through out been opposed to the system, probably disgusted at the recent affrays at that settlement, has given notice to Captain Macouocbie, that after the 1st of March next, the prisoners at present at Norfolk Island would be removed to Van Dieroen's Land, wilh the exception of those who had been doubly convicted. This, his Excellency observed would bring the new ; penal system to a termination, unless an addi tional cargo of prisoners should arrive from England, which, however, he did not anticipate, as he considered...

PORT NATAL. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 19 September 1842

PORT NATAL. (From, the Graham's Town Journal, Jaw 23J We have now the painful task of recording, that on Tuesday a communication from Natal reached town by the overland route, but which by the date appears to have been three weeks in making the journey. This communication we deeply lament to say, confirms our worst fears for the safety of the little band of men who had been left in cir cumstances of such ernminent danger. When the former account left Natal, we stated that the mes senger reported, that while on the journey, at a distance from the port of about 16 or 18 miles, he distinctly heard the sound of cannon, and from the information now received it would seem that this was an attack by the Boers on the party which had been left to defend the stores, then re cently landed from the Pilot, but which Captain Smith had not had time and opportunity to convey from the landing place to his entrenched camp, about a mile and a-half distant. These stores had been deposited in a strong s...

POETRY. ENTHUSIASM OF YOUTH. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 19 September 1842

POETRY. KNTHUS1AS.M OK YOUTH. I.ifc still is young but not the world, wilh me ; For where the freshness 1 was «ont to see? A bloom hath vanish'd from the face of things; N'or more the syren of enchainment sings In sunny mead, or shady walk, or uow'r, Like that which warbled o'er my youthful hour. Jut reason laugh, or elder wisdom smile On the warm phantasies which youth beguile ; I here is a purolicss in that glorious prime That mingles not ivith our maturer lime. All earth is brighten'd from a sun within, As yet unshaded by a world of sin, While mind and nature blendingly array In light and love, wliaic'cr our dreams survey ; — Though perils darken from the distant years, They vanish, cloud-like, when a smile appears I And the light woes that flutter o'er the mind Arc laugh'd away, as foam upon the wind.— Thou witching Spirit of a young hour ! Did I not feel ihec in thy fullest pow'r? Attest ye glories ! flash'd from clouds and skies On the deep wonder of adoring eyes, As oft, scho...
