SYDNEY PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 4 May 1841
SYDNEY PRESS. Oun views ort the aborigines question, namely, that an educational establishment on a large scale for the training of black youths, as future teachers of their countrymen, be established forthwith in the neighbour- hood of Sydney or Melbourne, are materially strength- ened by an interesting circumstance which has kindly been communicated to us. Mr. S. Coxen some time back took under his protection a very promising black lad, with the intention of educating him. He was placed under the care of Mr. Gordon, schoolmaster, of this town, and his improvement and general mental proficiency is so gratifying, that we would advise any philanthropic person who feels an interest in the future condition of the aborigines to go and judge for himself. The boy reads and writes as well as any boy of his age. His manners are docile and intelli- gent. What a blessing then might be conferred if that experiment which has proved so successful in a single case could bo carried into effect wit...

CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 4 May 1841
CHINA. ATROCIOUS CRUELTY.-Ever since the English shipping have made Tungkoo their anchorage, a number, daily increasing, of all kinds of Chinese tradesmen, carrying on their business in boats, have gathered there, until at the present time there are so many, that they present the appearance of a floating town, the boats being moored in regular line, forming streets, each boat being a shop, in which most neces- saries and even some luxuries of life are offered for sale. In some of the boats their occupants are car- penters, in others blacksmiths ; here you see a tailor's shop, there a disciple of St. Crispin plies his awl ; one one side visitors are eased of their loose cash by the allurements of a gambling table, and on the other the anti-temperance men may find ample opportunity of satisfying their propensity in a gin shop ; nor are temptations of a softer kind wanting ; in short, that part of Tungkoo Bay presents exactly the same sort of business as is found in maritime towns near...

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 4 May 1841
ENGLISH EXTRACTS. A public dinner was given at Manchester on Thurs- day, to Sir Thomas Potter, late Mayor of the borough, as a mark of respect for his public services, and for the great personal sacrifices he has made in behalf of his fellow townsmen. About 600 persons sat down to dinner, at which the present Mayor presided. Mr. Greg, in returning thanks with his colleague when their healths were drunk, said he should continue to devote himself to his duties in Parliament until its dissolution, when he should retire. Mr. Gisborne, M. P., and Mr. Milner Gibson, were present at the dinner. The former remarked with dissatisfaction on the state of the Liberal party in the country at present : they seemed to bim to bo suffering under a natural decuy, which he feared it would require all their energies to check. Mr. Gisborne blamed the Minis- try for this, for when they had power they did not know how to make use of it : and they gave quarter to enemies who never gave quarter to them.-Ali...
NAVAL AND MILITARY BREV[?] [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 4 May 1841
NAVAL AND MILITARY BREVBI'. ..*-' A RUMOUR was in circulation many weeks, we might say months, ago, that there would be issued about this period an extensive brevet to the navy and army of Great Britain. There is now a rumour as widely circulated, and as confidently as the former, that there will not be a brevet. On inquiring what had. produced the first mentioned report, and why it was recently contra- dicted, we were told, and in our simplicity were struck with amazement at hearing1, that the " brevet" was to be caused by the (expected) birth of a " Prince of Wales," and that the refusal of it is meant by her Majesty's Ministers as a compliment to the " Princess Royal." Now let us consider for one moment the sort of connexion thus proclaimed between a brevet for the promotion of officers anti the sex of a royal infant. Why the process of causation between Tenterden steeple and Goodwin sands is wisdom, is philosophy, compared with that between an announcement^by .any Palace midwife...
LATEST ACCOUNTS FROM OLYMPUS. (From the Morning Chronicle.) [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 4 May 1841
LATEST ACCOUNTS FROM OLYMPUS. (From the Morning Chronicle.) As news from Olympus has grown rather rare. Since bards, in their cruises, have ceas'd to touch there, We extract for our readers th' intelligence given, In our latest accounts from that ci-dcvant Heaven, That realm of the by-gone«, where still sit, in state, Old god-bends and nod-heads, now long out of date. Jove himself, it appears, since his love days arc o'er, Seems to find immortality rather a bore; Though he still asks for news of earth's capers and crime», And reads daily his old brother-Thund'rer, the Times. He and Vulcan, it seems, by their wives still hen-peck'd are, And kept on a stinted allowance of nectar. Old Phoebus, poor lad, has given up inspiration, And pack'd off to earth, on a puff speculation. The f.ict is, he found his old shrines had grown dim, Since bards look'd to Bentley and Colburn, not him. So, he sold off his stud of ambrosia fed nags, Carne incog down to earth, and now wiites for the Mags ; Tak...
MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 4 May 1841
MISCELLANEOUS. Compressed Airas a Motive Power-Several distinguish- ed engineers and other scientific men attended lately to witness a series of experiments on compressed air, at the late establishment of M. Perrier aud Co., at Chail lot. The inventor of the various new and ingenious modes of applying this power, M. Andraud, a gentleman well known in the scientific and literary world, began by exhi- biting a small carriage, which was set in motion by com- pressed air on a small railway luid down for the purpose. The air, compressed only to about 35 atmospheres, which is little more lhan one-third of the power to which it nan be compressed without danger of explosionáis contained in a proof cylinder or reservoir, which supplies the piston in the same way as for a steam locomotive. M. Andraud states lhat two of these cylinders are sufficient for the supply of a locomotive for several miles on a railway ; and as air can be compressed almost without expense, wher- ever there is a stream...

Macintyre's Durham cattle, said by some judges to be equal to any ever imported into the colony, were o II creel for sale by auction, but such is tlio badness of the times that there were no bids to any thing like the value, and consequently only two were sold ; one for £36 and one for £25.
