NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 16 August 1839
NEW ZEALAND. We have been solicited by the Baron de Thierry to give publicity to the following docu- ment, which he calls a "Decree":- In the Name and Behalf of the Aborigines of New Zealand. Several European Companies having intimated an intention to purchase extensive tracts of land in the Islands of New Zealand, and large purchases being made by individuals, the effect of which will be, at no distant period, to drive the natives from their cultivated grounds, and to retard, if nat to prevent almost entirely, their civilization;-Also, the de- plorable condition to which the Chiefs must soon be reduced by the unwillingness of their slaves to raise the food necessary for their subsistence in conse- quence of the great scarcity of labour and the high wages which they will be able to obtain from the whiles; I, Charles, Baron de Thierry, being most anxious to prevent the degradation and demoralisation of the New Zealanders, and to render emigration to this country a source of permanent...
MISCELLANEOUS. THE SUBSOIL PLOUGH. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 16 August 1839
MISCELLANEOUS. THE SUBSOIL PLOUGH. At a late meeting of the Agricultural Society of West Auckland, South Durham, Mr. Deighton, of Winston, «aid-He would recommend all agricultural men to visit Mr. Harrison, of Stubb House, near West Auckland, and witness the operation of the subsoil plough. It was an implement which, in his opinion, would revolutionise the face of the whole earth.-( Hear, hear.)-The common plough having gone over the land, drawn by four horses, the subsoil plough followed at a short distance, drawn by eight horses, and ploughed the ground to the depth of twelve or fourteen inches. Strong soils required eight horses ; but in light and more loamy land, four horses would suffice to plough to the depth of about nine inches. The common plough turned over the surface, and the subsoil plough shook and loosened the lower soil. Thus the earth was rendered so light, that as the rain fell on St from the heavens, it found its way to the drains and left no superfluous and unnece...

THE WESLEYAN CENTENARY FUND, &c. (From the Watchman.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 23 August 1839
THE WESLEYAN CENTENARY FUND, &c, &nbsp; (From the Watchman.) The adjourned meetings of the General Centenary Committee were held in Manchester on Wednesday, and the two following days, according to a resolution of the last meeting of that committee in Newcastle, on the 31st December, the president of the conference in the chair. The Manchester sub-committee reported that their lists of subscriptions, received from about 180 circuits, amounted to ¿£160,000-an amount far exceeding the expectations of the most sanguine at the period of the first meeting. Among various miscellaneous matters, which engaged the committee on Wednesday, arrangements for an effec- tive deputation to Ireland occupied a considerable time. The president at once kindly consented to serve this grea cause ; and the committee deemed the secretary's services to be of such importance to three or four of the principal meetings in Ireland, that, although reluctant to disappoint those friends and congreg...

üTif CDitvt*?* FRIDAY EVENING, AUGUST 23,1339. WE are happy to communicate the safe arrival of Lady Franklin, after a tedious voyage of three weeks from Sydney. Her Ladyship is in the enjoyment of excellent health. Her Ladyship has encountered no ordinary 'perils by land and &nbsp; by sea.'

In fact, the paper which we received was several days later in date than " the despatches" of the Government, or than any other journal which reached this colony.
