VAN DIEMEN'S LAND AUXILIARY BIBLE SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 14 May 1841
VAN DIEMEN'S LAND AUXILIAR*1 BIBLE SOCIETY. " The twenty-first Anniversary of this most important institu- tion was held on Wednesday evening, May 5th, in Trinity Church, His Excellency the Lieutenant-Governor, President of the Society, Jn the chair. The meeting was opened by the Reverend P. Palmer, first offering a few remarks on the satis- faction he derived from witnessing the union and co-operation of the various denomination of Christians in the great work of circulating the sacred volume, which they all professed to receive with equal reverence, and to regard as the common ground of appeal in support of their respective views. He then invited the assembly to join with him in imploring the divine blessing to rest upon the object which they had assembled to promote. The Report was read by the Reverend F. Miller, and con- tained an earnest appeal from the Ladies' Branch Bible Asso- ciation to the ladies of Hobart Town and its vicinity for additional assistance in carrying on the ...
SPIRIT OF THE ENGLISH PRESS. THE FUNERAL OF NAPOLEON. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 14 May 1841
SPIRIT OF TIÏE ENGLISH PRESS. THE FUMERAI. OF NAPOLEÓN. Constitutionnel.-One of the humiliations of France, the .most poignant, perhaps has just had a reparation. The ashes of the soldier of wbom she made a King-of the'man in whom she was personi- fied for twenty years-have been brought back from exile. Even in the degradation in which this same France has been plunged for the last two months she has.felt joy and pride; she has now another great page to add to her history ; she has the funeral of Napoleon to oppose to that Europe which insults her. The million of men who bowed before the ashes of the hero were an eloquent pro- test against the traitors of 1815, with whom France has borne, and still suffers. The hero was con- quered once after fifteen years of victory. And have we been so conquered that we are to be so humiliated. Has this new treaty of Vienna a Waterloo for its excuse ? Times.-The leading articles of the French Oppo- sition prints are couched in language which by it...

THE COURIER. Strenue et Prospere. HOBART TOWN, FRIDAY, MAY 14. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 14 May 1841
THE COURIER. Strcnue et Drosgrre. HOBART TOWN, FRIDAY, MAY 14. We have received English journals by the Essex to the 20th of December. Our readers will find, we believe exclusively in our paper, a full account of the funeral of Napoleon,- who now reposes, according to his latest wish, upon the banks of the Seine. The pageant after all was a kind of theatri- cal show, and appears to have been regarded as such. Far better, and to our mind grauder, would it have been to have let his remains rest in the soli- tude of the lonely isle where he expired a captive. An extensive promotion has, we understand, taken place amongst the officers of the British Navy engaged in the capture of Acre. A GUEAT sensation has been produced amongst the settlers by the announcement that a large quan- tity of flour, amounting, as we learn, to three hundred tons, had been ordered by the Commissariat from England, and that it was shortly expected to arrive in the colony. Public indignation has in consequence '...

THE SEA-SPIRIT'S SONG. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 21 May 1841
THE SEA-SPIRIT'S SONG. The tempests sleep O'er the tranquil deep, And the winds are lull'd to rest ; I speed through the waves, From my coral caves, To dance on the ocean's breast. While the oib of night Is rounded and bright, Enthroned in a sea of blue ; And the stars are pale, And the breath of the gale Is sweet with the evening dew. My lute is a «hell And wild is the smell That over the water floats ; But they know not the while, How deep is the guile That lurketh in all its notes, I comb my long locks, Who«e bright colour mocks The Caspian's golden sand ; And braid them beneath A red coral wreath, Or sparkling amber band. illy For treasures are mine That glitter and shine In many a grotto of spar, Far, far in the deep Where the sea-birds sleep, And the sea-god's mansions are. There gardens bloom, And are rich with perfume Beyond earth's fairest flowers ; They spring from the rock, ?> Bear the tempest's shock, ,. And need nor sun nor showers. H Then who would not come , To the...
