THE HOBART-TOWN COURIER.     SATURDAY, MARCH 1. 1828. -ooo- On an average the weekly consumption of spirits taken out ot bond, and on which duty is paid, in Van Diemen's land, may be calculated at 7 puncheons, or 840 gallons a week, or 43,680 gallons a year, which al the moderate cost of twtuly shillings a gallon to the consumers, will amount lo as many pounds.

PORT DAVEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 1 March 1828

PORT DAVEY. The greater part of the southern coast of Van Die men's land, as might be concluded from its exposed situation to the storms of the polar legions, is rugged, abrupt and barren. From its general appearance, howvever. and near resemblance to the mining coun- tries of Europe and South America, and from the na- ture of the minerals which have already been found, there is every probability that it is rich in subiera neous wealth. At the present stage of colonization in the island we have no wish to see these disclosed. The blacks who inhabit these shores arc, it would ap- licar, a degree above those in the interior. They sub- sist chiefly on shell-fish and sea birds, and arc all possessed of rude cobbles or coracles, in which, though frail, they venture far nut lo sea, visiting the Mew- stone ond other distant rocks and islands. As yet they have not learned to molest the whites, except in purloining different articles, a habit natural to all savages. Last week, a party of bet...

.RURAL ECONOMY. [ DfET.-In London'sajs Air.

You certainly see muny of these who, if you regard tia ftilin*s of flush and ruddiness ofüompkxiun as signs of health, may he considered as fine specimens. But these parsons aro Subjekt to inflammat'ir¿ uticks of the most \iuient kind, which they bear viry ill. Slight injuries, which in others would be wholly unimportant, pro- duce in them severe inflammation, which often runs into erysipelas, and terminates in gangrene and death.

THE HOBART-TOWN COURIER. SATURDAY, MARCH 8, 1828. % -000 Tilc alterations in the Duties, as published in the Proclamation last week, so far as they extend, are in perfect accordance with the sentiments which we our- selves have frequently promulgated in this Journal* Society cannot exist without social order and right government. Without them, anarchy and confusion would prevail, and neither the property, nor the life of any individual would be safe. The dignity and the expense of that government mutt therefore be maintained and defrayed, and so far as they can be so, at the cost of the luxurious no one can complain. Taxation, which 1n any sense is an evil, so far is to- lerable. The articles on which an increased duty has j'ust been imposed may all be fairly classed as lux- uries in Van Diemen's land. We hare spoken in another column as regards Ile tax on spirits, and our only' objection is, that by taxing that article at all government,sanctions the introduction amongst us of a mo...

EXECUTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 8 March 1828

EXECUTION. William Fowler and Henry Williamton, who ex- piated their lives on the gallows, on Friday last, af- forded another striking lesson to many in this com munity, which it would be a neglect of duty in us as a public journalist, as far as in us lies, not to im- prove. They had both imbrued their hands in hu- man blood, under aggravated circumstances ; and though during their trials, there was much doubt that sufficient proof could not be brought against them, yet Providence so ordered it, that they were both convicted and both fully confessed their guilt. Fowler, in particular, had so planned and premedi- tated his guilty purpose, that as far as human means conld be supposed to go, it appeared impossible his crime could ever be discovered A crowd of circum- stances, however, though trifliug, taken singly, con- spired together and confirmed his guilt. He was by trade a boot-closer from the town of Bristol. It was   a profitable business, by which he made a good de...
