EPIGRAPH On a Half Pay Officer. (From the United Service Journal.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 6 August 1831

y EPIGRAPH^ o Ona Half Pay Officer. -009-' (Fron the) United Service Journal.) s. I Here rests his head, within the dread King's Bench, A youth to tailors and to bailiffs known ; In field of Fashion nought his z> al could quench, Early a standard inark'd hiru for its own. Bright was his gorget, and his gaiters spruce; Last at the mess, and first upon parade; To female heart he ne'er gave peace or truce, \ ) Fondly carest by widow, wife, and maid. One morn, an order from the llorac Guards carne, Nor at guard mounting nor parade was he ! Alas ! half-pay had blasted hope, rank, name, Turning to sighs aud tears his mirth and glee. '$ Soon dun« assailed liiin, and the cross-legged tribes; Leagued with attornies, hasten hi» sad end ; Yet fame, with all his faults, this truth inscribes, He loved his lass, his bottle, and his friend.

The overweening misfortune of the pre- sent Cabinet is, the abundance of pledges I which they have given at times when they bad not the slr|htest expectation of ever being placed in a situation to render them ; and this facility of pledging, and this diffi- culty of redeeming, afford the strongest pos- sible proof of the absurdity of theories, and the embarrassments in thepractice of govern- ments. It is easy for an opposition to ex- pose a weak point ; but the same random assailant, when it cqtnes to his turn, finds it an arduous task to make that weak point strong. So that when a body of speaking reformers come to act as defenders of the state, they discover too late the intemper- ance of their former hostility, and find them- selves placed between the contending duties of maintaining consistency, and at the same time, of protecting ihe best interests of the .country.-Court Journal. The education of the Princess Victoria makes most gratifying progress. Until the accession of his p...

PARLIAMENTARY REFORM. A long arid very interesting debate on the subject, of .re foi ni took place iu the,House of Lords on the 28th of March, on the mo tion of Lord Wharticliffe for population re- turns. Lord Brougham in the course of his speech, asked their Lordships what,they . thought of a man, who to get rid of his debts bought a seat in' Parliament for 3 months, by which means he got out of prison, went abroad: .and .vacated his seat that another might do the same] What did they think nfa man who bought a borough for '50,0001. bel said bought a borough, for. that was thc phrase, but what is really bought is the pow- er, of deciding upon peace and wary upon all affairs of commerce, upon Parliamentary, re- form, upan the amount of taxation and in a word upon all the great and vital questions, . wherever the prosperity, perhaps the very existence of the empire depends.

Cfje Courier. SATURDAY, AUGUST 13, 1831. There has been no arrival of shipping at Hobart-town this week. Sailed on Sunday, the French corvette La Favorite, Capt. La Place, for Sydney, in prosecution of her voyage round the world. The schooner Friendship had arrived at Launceston from Sydney. Wheat, we have some pleasure in stating, was gradually ris- ing in price in the Sydney market. The ship Kains had got back to Sydney after being 2 months at sea in severe wea- ther. The Farewell, respecting the fate of which sp much interest bas been excited, has at length arrived safe and sound. It seems that this vessel had been driven by violent and contrary winds into Sydney, where she lay for more than a week. Considerable danger was ineurred, in consequence of her compass by some accident getting out of repair. The quadrant is said to have been the only guide.?Launceston Air.

(From.ifi^y'dp,ey Gazette;) ;'It'lVextremely gratifying to learn, that tile Argyle wheat has now. obtained among Sydney purchases an established superiority over that of Van Diemen's land. It is held t6.be worth, on the average, sixpence a bush- el mor/..- A day pr two ago, an Argyle set- tler aolrj" a' qnant.ity. to one of the Sydney millers at 6$ 3d ready money, the same indi- vidual having just purchased a quantity from Van Diemen's laud at 6's, with four months credit. The difference in the terms of pay- ment was reckoned equal to the 3d. The distinguishing excellence of tbe Ar- gyle grain is, that it has a much thinner husk than that of Van Diemen's land, and conse- quently a greater quantity of flour with aless quantity of bran. All that Argyle wants are good roads and steam-coasters. The former are in progress; the latter will be forthcoming in due time.; H. M. S.
