THE RISING YOUNO MAN. (From the Court Journal) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 30 November 1832

THE RISING YOUNO MAN. (From the Court Journal) Oh yes, he is in Parliament ; He's been returning thanks ; You can't conceive the time he's spent In giving people franks. He's grown a most important man ; His name's in the Gazette; And though he swears he never can, I'm sure he will forget. He talks quite grand of Grant and Grey ; He jests at Holland House : He dines superbly-every day On «rtolans and grouse. Our salads'now he'll never touch, He keeps a different set, They'll never love him half so much As those he must forget. He used to scrawl the sweetest things In all our Albums once ,* But now his late has lost the strings, His muse is quite a dunce : They print his speeches in the 7 imes, And vast renown they get ; But ah ! his dear delicious rhymes, All hearts,' but mine, forget ! He flirts this year extremely ill, His flattery don't improve ; When Weippert plays a new quadrille, He »ays, ' I rise to move !' And when I sing* The Soldier's tear,' The song he called his ' pet,' ...

In the' "number of Fraser'«, Magazine for ^ June last, there is an interesting paper, entu tied ««the Schoolmaster in Newgate." About -3000 prisoners the writer states, are annually committed to Newgate, »bout .450 of whom are discharged by proclamation, and ef the remaining 2550 that are tried, nearly one fourth are acquitted, leaving little *hort of 2000 for sentence in each year. Of those the average transported is 800» and the remaining 1200 are turned loose in a short period on, the town, and in due course appear again at the Old Bailey, . > During their enlargement as a certain thing, these experienced thieves are diligent at work in propagating their race, and thus during the ?rlast few years crime has progressively increased at the rate of 4 sevenths annually. Every . escape makes the thief more reckless. There have been instances of offenders in England undergoing a course of 17 imprisonments and other punishments before their career was stop- ped by transportation. Obse...

A large extent of well watered pasture land, particularly eligible for cattle, will then be open to the public, cither to rent or purchase, and together with the present propitious pro- mise of harvest, unusually productive of hay and straw-the unparalleled quantity of turnip land now preparing in all parts of the colony, and the addition of a market, which we pointed out last week, we may hope shortly to find butchers' meat in Hobart-town reduced to a level with other arti« les of provision. This, if report speaks true, is indeed more to be wished than we at first imagined. For it is said, that in consequence of tbe great disparity which has of late prevailed between-the rate of the meat contracts for the convict establish- ment at Hobart-town and Sydney, ...
