SYDNEY. i The Sydney papevs are filled with accomits of a most extensive fire, which took place there on the 3rd of March, destroying the whole of Messrs.

THE LAUNCESTON COURIER MONDAY, MARCH 22. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 22 March 1841

THE LAUNCESTON COURIER MONDAY, MARCH 22. The Lady Raffles has arrived at Hobart Town, bringing us our files of English papers to the 9th December. We are happy to an nounce that Captain Montagu has returned to the colony by this vessel in a perfect slate of health. Mr. Forster recedes to the Chief Police Magistracy, and Mr. Spode to his old office of Principal Superintendent. The English intelligence is of a varied and interesting character. On the 21st of November Her Majesty gave realization to the hopes and prayers of her loyal subjects, by giving birth to a princess. The Queen was as well as her subjects could desire. The happy event took place at ten minutes to two o'clock, and at twenty minutes to three a royal salute from the Tower announced the joyous intelligence to her Majesty's subjects in the metropolis. The war cry was gradually subsiding. The operations of the allied forces in Syria had been attended with unlimited success. The hitherto inipvpjriinhlp fnrr of Jean u'Ac...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 29 March 1841

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. Sib,— Many of .your fair readers who profitably employ a portion of their leisure hours, to the duties of the dairy, are unable to account for the rapid change that sometimes takeB place in their newly made butter which suddenly becomes rancid. My opinion is that the fault lies principally in the making up and salting of it, as I have always found that butter prepared by the fol lowing directions will keep perfectly sound, and preserve its original flavour. Wash the butter immediately it is made in several waters till it no longer imparts a milky appearance to the water, spread it out and sprinkled with it salt and' loaf sugar which have previously been dried in the oven, and finely powdered. For present use half an ounce of each to every pound of butter If potted, add to every pound of butter one ounce of each, knead them well together till the whole are thoroughly incorporated. Press the butter into stone jars, perfectly jsweet^nd. dry, in ...

PARIS. December 6th. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 29 March 1841

PARIS. December 6th, IS ^c result of the discussion on the address « the Chamber of Deputies has created little Htouishment, for it was known yesterday mom ISg that more than twenty members of the Left Hd Centre Left had abandoned their party, Hd cone over to the ministry. I told yem at ?e beginning of the discussion, that some bets Bid been laid at Tortoni's that the majority for Ministers wouid be eighty. The result has ITiven great hopes to the peace party, but I am m-ny to say that the feeling of the war party is Us strong as ever; and I am quite convinced Eliat if means be not taken to renew tlie alliance Kith England, the system of what is called an Hrmed peace will not be of long duratton. The [French will not remain isolated ; their pride is Efoo much affected by such a position, and the Jtovernment in order to gain strength, must be ?ble to show that they are able to cultivate a friendship with England.

THE LAUNCESTON COURIER MONDAY, MARCH 29. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 29 March 1841

THE LAUNGESTON COURIER MONDAY, MARCH 29. The Colony owes a debt of gratitude to Captaiu Montagu, for tbe benefit which he has con ferred upon it by securing the constant supply of a large portion of convict labour. It appears that it was entirely through this gentleman's representations that Lord John Aussell was induced to abandon the project which lie had conceived, of having all prisoners employee, in the service of the Crown. Great indeed would have been the injury inflicted upon this Colony, had this plan been carried into operation, and great indeed is the obligation which we all owe to Captain Montagu for saving us from the distress into which we should have been thrown. Including the recent arrivals at Hobart Town, four thousand convicts may shortly be expected here. It is not yet known in what way they will be disposed of, but the Hobart Town Cou rier, with a tone that savours strong of growing authority, announces, that the period of their probation will be as short as pos...

REPORT OF THE INFANT SCHOOL. FOR THE YEAR 1841. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 29 March 1841

REPORT OF THE INFANT SCHOOL, FOR THE YEAR 1841. For the last two years your Committee have thought it unnecessary to call a Public Meeting — the School being once completely established, there was nothing that required one, nor anything novel to give sufficient interest. This being however a public Institution, and partly dependant on the public for support, it is requisite that the public should be occasionally assembled that pro- ceedings may be reported, a Committee and officers ap- pointed, and an opportunity given of seeing that the Trusts are duly discharged. The last Anniversary was in January 1838, when Mr. Lassetter was Master, the school was in a flourishing state; but Mr. Lasseter found it necessary to follow other pur- suits, and gave notice in October 1838, to the Commit- tee of his intention to resign. The Committee at once commenced by advertisement, and otherwise to seek for another Master, and for fear of not finding a suitable person in Van Diemen's Land, an advert...

MR. NATHAN THE MUSICIAN. We copy the subjoined account of the life and works m Mr. Nathan, the eminent musician, now in Melbourne, from the Australasian Chronicle of the 25th February. " Isaac Nathan was born at Canterbury in the year 1792, and, being intended by his parents for the Church, was, at the age of ten placed at Cambridge, Christ Church College, under the care of Mr. Lyon, the Hebrew teacher to the University, where he made considerable progress in that language, as also in the German and j Chaldean. It was only as a relaxation from his severer studies that he was permitted to learn the violin ; a cir cumstance which led to an early display of his innate love formusic, and eventually brought about an entire change in the views of his parents. His frankness of disposition and sweetness of voice made, him a favourite with his masters and schoolfellows ; and, so encouraged -was he by the praises he received and the pleasure he felt in the cultivation of 'his taste for the sc...
