CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 4 May 1841
CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. ADMIRAL ELLIOTT in H. M. S. Volage, had touched at the Cape, and would probably arrive in England by the middle of this month. His Excellency the Governor has despatched a party of the 27th regiment and Cape mounted rifles, through Cafferland, to take up a position on the river Umzimvobo, for the purpose of protecting the native chiefs in that quarter against the aggressive attacks of the emigrant boors. The Coffer chiefs having been informed of the design of this expedition, have readily and gratefully offered ev«ry facility to its progress through their country, and to the keeping up of com- munications between it and the colony.-South Afri- can Commercial Adcertiser. BANKING.-The Cape of Good Hope Bank gave this year a dividend of £5 per share, or 15 per cent, on the paid up capital. The South African Bank paid a divtdend of £1 16s. per share, or 6 per cent, on the paid up capital. It appears by the report fur 1840, of the directors of the Eastern province Bank...
SWAN RIVER PRESS. IMPORTATION OF STOCK TO SWAN RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 4 May 1841
SWAN RIVER PRESS. IMPORTATION OF STOCK TO SWAN RIVER. Within the last three weeks we have had arrivals in our port, from Adelaide and Port Phillip, with about 1,100 sheep landed in safety, out of 2,500 shipped, and 150 head of horned cattle with trifling loss. The occasion of these losses it may be as well to explain. Many of the sheep put on board the "Coromandel," we believe originally about 1,100, had been driven from the interior to Port Phillip, a distance of about 200 miles, a fortnight before they were shipped. During this fortnight they were de- pastured in (he neighbourhood, where but little water could be procured, and that brackish ; but when on board, at the commencement of the voyage, they were well supplied with water and coarse hay,-the change of food and the water are supposed to have occasion- ed the mortality. Sheep are delicate voyagers, and the dilîicully of attending to 1,100 may have tended to augment the list of deaths, which, we understand, in this vessel alo...
PORT PHILLIP. GIPPS'S LAND. OVERLAND EXPEDITION OF MESSRS. KIRSOPP AND OTHERS, [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 4 May 1841
PORT PHILLIP. GIPPS'S LAND. OVERLAND EXPEDITION OF MESSRS. KIRSOPP AND OTHERS Tuesday, 23d March.-The party left the depot at the Albert river, with eight horses, two of which carried three weeks' provisions ; at nine miles on a N. course made the Tarra rivulet, crossing which at a distance of nine miles on a N.E. course came upon a line of route distinguished by marked trees, supposed to have been constructed by M'Millan's party, some initials of several members left on a tree at the encampment confirming the conjecture. This route running N. by W. was followed up twenty-three miles, in the belief that it would lead to the crossing place of the La trobe ; but on arriving at a high range on their track they descried to the southward Wilson's Promontory, the eastern and nearest part of its high land bearing S., and to the N.E._ the splendid Savannahs and forests of that space of country which, lying between Moneroo Plains and Corner Inlet, is bounded north by the Australian Alps, and...

GOVERNMENT SCHOOLS.-We understand that at these schools there are now upwards of 2000 children receiving- instruction, a great proportion of whom would in all probability be denied the advantage of education, either from its expense, or, iti the remoter portions of the island, from the absence of all other schools for miles around them. THE THEATRE.-Last evening the much talked of and anxiously looked for spectacle of the Antarctic ex- pedition was performed before a densely crowd...

THE COURIER. Strrnue et Draym. HOBART TOWN. TUESDAY, MAY 4. THE attention of the authorities has, we are happy to learn, been at length aroused to the alarming in- crease which has of late taken place in the number of licensed public-houses, and we are assured that the most prompt and decisive measures will be taken to check the growth of this spreading pestilence, which threatens destruction to our social state. We need not point out how this evil lias been permitted to grow to such an extent, or how many very charitable gentlemen have stood sponsors for the fair fame of doubtful publicans, in that easy indifference of temper and taste which so often in this community deeply as it is to be deplored 1-glozes over vice and crime, and makes a mockery of truth. It is enough for us to know that the full extent of the evil is recognized, and that the firm, yet temperate hand of authority, will be interposed for the protection of the lower orders of the people, in the same way that we alw...

THE CABINET. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 4 May 1841
THE CABINET. Home Affections of the Poor.-If ever household affections and loves are graceful things, they are graceful in the poor. The tics that bind the wealthy and the proud to home maybe forged on earth, but those which link the poor man to his humble hearth arc of the true metal, and bear the stamp of Heaven. The man of high descent may love the halls and lands of hil inheritance as a part of himself, as trophies of his birth and power i his associations with them are associations of pride, and wealth, and triumph ; the poor man's attachment to the tenement he holds, which strangers have held before, and ma; to-morrow occupy again, has a worthier root, struck deep into a purer soil. His household goods arc of flesh and blood, with no alloy of silver, gold, or precious stone ; he has no property but io the affections of his own heart; and when they endear bare doors and walls, despite of rags, and toil, and scant; meals, that man has his love of home from God, and his rude hut ...
