THE CABINET. THE SEARCH FOR ECHO. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 28 May 1841
THE CABINET. THE SEARCH FOR ECHO. BY MISS M. A. BROWNE. Over the hills and over the plains We seek her, but nought but a Voice remains I She was fairest of the fair ; Like the sunbeam flowed her hair ; Like the bare-bell, soft of hue, Was her eye, so sweetly blue. She went forth, enrobed in white, With the holly berries bright Twining in her floating curls ; And her teeth like purest pearls, Gleamed, as with a parting smile, She turned to leave her home awhile. Through the valley, beside the rill, Wc seek her, but all, save a Voice, is still I She went forth to find the flowers Blooming in the early bowers ; Scarcely yet the soil spring wind Leaves a path of green behind, Where its fertile breath bath been ; Few the leaves to form a screen Midst the forest's arching glades, That the genial sun pervades With his warm soft smile. She went By that oak tree, bare and bent ; Early hyacinths were there ; She stooped to pluck the blossoms rare. But now through these woods, like a wandering...

GOVERNMENT NOTICE. No. 117. Colonial Secretary's Office, 24th May, 1841. Her Majesty's Government having decided thai Assignment shall cease altogether with those male convicts who &nbsp; have arrived in the colony since the 1st June, 1840; the operations of the Board of Assignment have in consequence been so much curtailed as to render the continuance of &nbsp; that branch of the public service unnecessary. The Board will therefore be dissolved from the 1st proximo, after which period the duties of Assignment will be performed by the Principal Superintendent alone. By His Excellency's command, JOHN MONTAGU.

NEWSPAPERS AND CASH. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 28 May 1841
NEWSPAPERS AND CASH. Abundant experience has convinced us that the cash system is in the long run the only one upon which news- papers and periodicals can be prosperously and indepen- dently conducted. The charges for subscriptions are in- dividually so small, and yet so vitally important in the nggiegate, that the tioubte and expense of making collec- tions are loo apt to absorb all the anticipated profits and to defeat the hopes of the proprietor. A subscriber when dunued for a two 01 three dollar bill is too apt inconsider- ately to regard it as a paltry business to importune him for so trifling an umount. He does not reflect that three thousand subscribers of the same mind with himself might, by declining the liquidation of "these paltry amounts," seriously embarrass a large establishment. We can see no reason why a man should not pa) his two or three dollars doun when subscribing for a newspaper, as well as four or five dollars when starting in a steam boat or rail- road cur. Y...

INSOLVENT COURT. Wednesday, 26th May. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 28 May 1841
INSOLVENT COURT. Wednetday, 20fA May. as usual die business was uninteresting to ali but the parties concerned. In the case of James Reeve, the insolvent was examined at some length by Mr. Butler, junr., touching the disposal of some property and a thrashing machine, and the expenditure of the proceeds; but nothing of any conse- quence was elhited. Spine debts were also proved in this case. Joseph Black, of Pittwater, underwent a long exami- nation by Mr. nowlands, on the behalf chiefly of Mr. Watchorn, respecting the disposal of his property and farm i produce ( when questioned' about his house-keeper, one Mrs. Roberts, and the amount of wages that he had paid her, the [ insolvent stated that he had paid her husband £20 for her, on condition that ho (the husband) should go to Port Phillip and trouble her no more. This insolvent was strictly cau- tioned by Mr. Rowlands as'to the answers which he might give, and several of which were rendered very reluctantly« In the case of Mr. Melv...
ENGLISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 28 May 1841
ENGLISH EXTRACTS. Rank of Asia.-On the establishment of a Charter Bank of Asia, which we have already stated has been decided on, every dependency of the British empire will be linked in monetary connection with the mother country ; Asia and Australasia, the West Indies and the Canadas, the Ionian Islands, etc., will each then have their respective banks in England. The benefits resulting from such establishments are incalculable, not merely in a mercantile or financial point of view, for they are also of the utmost social and political utility. They prevent the necessity for the transfer of bullion from one country to another ; lower the rates of interest, by supplying capital wherever it can be advantageously employed ; steady and equalise the exchanges ; give confidence to nil engaged in distant trading operations, induce the merchant to direct all his skill, energy, and means, to the production and transfer of profitable commodities-leaving to the banker the intermediate agency ...
THE COURIER, THURSDAY, MAY 27. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 28 May 1841
THE COURIER, THURSDAY, MAY 27. We have been kindly favoured with a Naval and Military Gazette, from which we extract the list of the promotions which have been made amongst the officers engaged in the late splendid exploits on the coast of Syria. Although but an act of justice to the officers themselves, its moral effect upon the whole navy will be most beneficial, because it will show that there is not that indifference to the glory and advancement of that branch of the service which has of late years been supposed to exist ; in addition to which it will prove to France that we are as regard- less of her threats as her jealousy, for no doubt they will construe such extensive promotion into a national insult. We trust the Chinese expedition may have a similarly successful termination ; but too much time has been there already consumed in useless négo- ciation. Commanders to be Captains, by commissions dated 4th November, 1840 : William Luckraft, commander of Belleraphun. Thomas Hend...
