RURAL ECONOMY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 16 February 1828

RURAL ECONOMY. ¿r/sr/s NATVBJS.-The great luxuriance of vege- tation in this island when aided by the labour qf man, is apt to throw nature into singular and faUVlstio forms. Apples for instance are sometimes so crowd- ed on the branch, a» to force the stalk and blossom to approach each other as they often do in the straw- berry, and oilier recumbent fruits. We have now an apple before us of about nine inches in circumference, in which the stalk and blossom are within an inch of each other. The leaves of many cultivated pUnts are no less worthy the attention of the naturalist. The great luxuriance of the hawthorn, and tl|e diver- sity in the leaf, both as to »hades «t green and the/omi and site of ( the leal are very striking. We have observed some lobed exactly like the leaves of the oak, while others are so jagged and pinnated, as to resemble closely those of the hemlock! or carrot. -oo WORKING OYBIV.-We have on several occasions pointed out the great advantages arising on a farm ...

THE TREADMILL. The treadmill, we learn, at the prisoner'» barrack» is now finished, and will be immediately put into action.^ J W« have never been backward to exprci» our sentiments freely,-on any thing regarding the public, whether emanating from the government, or not, and this we do not only, from our sense «f> duty, as guardian» of the public, but with the more eatiifac* tion because we know that the liberality of the ad- ministration which now directs the government of Van Diemen's land, will receive in good part such reasoning or arguments as would lend to throw light op any public measure, although these arguments might be hostile' to'tbtil very measure.

Al- though we have been charged with it, we have never joined in the cry against it,-we are favourable, not hostile to it» auccess.

'.. THE HOBART-TOWN COÜÍtlElV SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 23,1828. The importance of the subject obliges us once more to cull the attention of the Government, more especi- ally the Members of the Legislative Couucil to the abuses arising from the present system of impound- ing. It is notorious that some of the least woitby members of the community obtain a handsome in- come by entrapping the stock of harmless indivi- duals, driving them to die Pound, and claiming exherbitant sums for damages which had nqver been committed. Cases of mere trespass indeed, are almost entirely abandoned, because in them the im* pounder is, in comparison, but scantily remunerated. Suppose, for instance, a pig breaks into my garden, or enters perhaps by the gateway which had been left upen,l am at liberty to drive him to the pound and 1 without any other testimony, to tell the keeper he is not to liberate the animal until 2, 3, or 4 pounds da- mage arc first paid-and this damage generally ap- proaches to the value...

LA PEROUSE. The return to our colony of Dr. Griffith, Surgeon of the Research, during the grand discovery of the wreck of this unfortunate nobleman, by Captain-Dillon, en- ables us to give our readers a few further particulars of that interesting voyage. From Sydney Captain Dillon proceeded to the bay of islands in New Zea- land, wliere he completed, some repairs which his ves- sel was in want of. Mr. Williams, the Missionary there, afforded them every assistance and information. The two natives of that island, who had accompanied Captain Dillon in the St. Patnck, to Calcutta, did not only not leave the vessel there, but two more also joined him, whom like the others he dubbed noblemen of high rank. The one was called the Marquis of   Shookiana and the other Prince Charley. The latter   had some years ago, paid a visit to England, and had been graciously received by his late Majesty, King   George the Third. The pomp and circumstance in- deed, ...

The dead were still unburied, and lay about in every direction, completely naked. They had been stripped even of their shirts, and hav- ing been exposed in this state to the violent rain in the morning, they appeared to be bleached to a most unnatural degree of whiteness. The heat and rain   together, had likewise affected them in a different   manner; and the smell which arose upon the night air was horrible. " There is something, in such a scene as this, ex- tremely humbling, and repugnant to the feelings of human nature. During the agitation of a battle, it is nothing, to see men fall in hundreds b...
