THE ENGINEER DEPARTMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 9 July 1831

THE ENGINEER DEPARTMENT. We some time ago mentioned a report which bad reached us, amounting almost to certainty of the intended abolition of this de- partment. Such a measure we are awa,ré Woultf Coincide with the popular feeling, which has tong been in favour of all public works being carried on by contract. It'be- longs however to the public' writer, whjbse attention is naturally expected to be more fully devoted to subjects of public moment! calmly and dispassionately to weigh the true bearings of a case thus brought1 before him,' arid 'damttlessly to lay before'his reader the result of his deliberations, although it may be at variance with the general sentiment, or the avowed intention of the government Öy-such an independent course, he may in- deed risk the temporary popularity of the one or the countenance of the other, but he will enjoy what is better than both, the ap- probation of his own breast, and should his argument* prove successful the high grati- fication -also of h...

We regret to announce another most bar-   barous murder by the natives of New Hol-   land, in the death of Captain Barker, of the   39th regiment, late Commandant at King   George' Sound. The circumstances attend-   ing this melancholy death are thus detailed   in a Government Order by Governor-Dar-   ling, published in the Sydney Gazette of the 31st of May last:—   "The Governor, being desirous of avail-   ing himself of Capt. Barker's services, placed him in command at King George's Sound,   the duties of which station he discharged with his usual activity and discretion. "That settlement having been lately pla- ced under the Government of Western Aus- tralia, Captain Barker was requested, when returning to Sydney to ascertain whether there was any communication between the Lake, (Alexandrina) lately discovered by Captain Sturt, and Gulf St. Vincent.

PAUPER EMIGRATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 23 July 1831

PAUPER EMIGRATION. 2 j the course of 1829, says Mr. Potter M&^ueen, I made very minute inquiries as to '.he extent of the automation power cau- sed by machinery in England and Scotland, awl after setting aside all powers connected i, willi navigation, colleiies, and mines (»hafts) and draining, I believe I am warranted in concluding the following Maternent to he not very remote from the fact. "First, That to the close of 1828, the steam and mechanical engines of England and Scotland represent 4he power of 36,000 human beings, of whom a considerable pro- portion are women and children. "That they consequently give an addition to the population equal to 1,834,000 la- bourers." " Let it not, however, be supposed, that I entertain any apprehensions of this automa- tion power, as far as it has yet extended it- self ; or any desire to destroy its present opération. My firm belief is, that under a government really disposed to look to the means and resources of the country, ample e...

TU» hearing little more ¡than a dry narrative, £w were very agreeably surprised by a most jn leresting and critical discourse, displaying op the part oif the lecturer very unusual research and knowledge of the subject. Mr. Sprent bronght his illustration down by a natural' gradation from the earliest ages,to the pre- sent time. In mentioning the Chaldeans he al- luded to that singular computation of theirs in reckoning the age of the world as commu- nicated by Calisthenes, the philosopher of Olyntbus p eceptor of Alexander in his orien- tal expedition to his master Aristotle, that the earth had existed in its present form a pe- riod at tbat time of 470,000 years.

SYDNEY NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 23 July 1831

SYDNEY NEWS. The death by small-pox of a fine youth of about l8 or 19 years of age, named Hall, son of a gentleman at Sydney who had been sent home to the North of England for his education, and who had been vaccinated in the usual way in Sydney, has excited very general uneasiness in the minds of parents and others, under the apprehension that the virus of the cow-pock in use in these colonies had lost its virtue, and was not sufficiently efficacious, and consequently, that the indi- viduals inoculated with it will be as liable as ever, like the unfortunate Mr. Hall, to fall victims to the small-pox. The purest mat- ter may be obtained from the teats of many of the cows in this colony, especially at this season, before calving; but the subject alto- gether is one of much importance, and de- mands the attention of the authorities. Dr.       Scott, our Colonial Surgeon has, much to his credit, done much at various times to impress the necessity ...
