ir attention has .been called to an inter-1 tTr ïg?» wfresp^ntience between a writer Bel «fîgned Agrícola,.(Mr. David Gwynn recent- Wa ly arrived as a settler iu this colony) and the, ona Editor of the Sydney Gazette on the subject his of wool, and the general practice of agricnl- foti ture'adopted in New South Wales. Mr, Gwynn contrasting the disparity in the value of Saxon and Australian wool, attri- butes the inferiority of the latter, in a great measure to the ignorance of the sheep owners and the neglect ahd improper treatment of their flocks, especially as regards the preva- lence of the scab and rot. Mr. Gwynn also asserts, that the general quality of the soil of New South Wales, has been unjustly depreciated, and that those who have en- deavoured to cast that stain upon it, from the failure of their crops, are only "lazy and ignorant farmers." There is doubtless some truth in this; but we have always considered that the drawbacks to the growth of corn at Sydney, were more ow...

(To the Editor of the Courier). [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 26 May 1832

(To the Editer of the Courier). SIR,- The Orphan Institution at New Town I have been informed is to be paid for out of the proceeds of the Crown land, com- monly called the Government run, now ad- vertised for sale. This being the case I think it concerns every promoter of this truly humane and charitable institution to exert his influence to prevent the land from being sold for less than its full value.   With this notice I beg leave through the me- dium of your journal to correct an error res- pecting the quality of this land, which I find very widely spread amoug«t those who are unacquainted with its localities. The ' Government run' has deservedly a high character. But as it was first divided into four lots of 8,000 acres each, the fronts   to the Macquarie river, were necessarily small, and caused the back lines to extend   towards the tiers, about six miles. In con- sequence of this the conclusion has been very general by those unacquaint...

Clje Courier. SATURDAY. MAY 20,1832.   A vessel, supposed te be the Harriet, from the Mauritius, was in the river when our pa- per went to press. Wheat continues at its former average of 5s. 6d. and 5s, 9d per bushel, while the accounts from Sydney by the way of Laun cestón, are of the most opposite nature one letter stating that the highest price is not more than 3s. 9d., while a later report af- firms, that it is op to 10s. per bushel. The truth we conceive Juts betweeu-Jhem. The price of other grains bas undergone no va- riation since our last, and the supply of English barley is plentiful ; mutton 4d. to 5d. per lb, ; pork 6d. to 8d., a considerable supply of fat pork having come to town, for Mr. Farrel of Liverpool street, during tbe week, chiefly frota Mr. Griffith's beaotifol farm at the Tea-tree brush. Although the whaling season has scarcely begun above a fortnight, we are happy to announce that the fishery already promises, to be most propitious. The establish...
