THE HOBART-TOWN COURIER SATURDAY, MARCH 29, 1828. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 29 March 1828

THE HOBAÍiT-TOWN COURIER SATURDAY, MARCH 29, 1828. -000 It was the custom till within twelve or eighteen months ago, when any one was about to leave the colony, to advertise the public of his intended de- parture, and to obtain a certificate at the Supremo Court that no claim existed thero against him. Since this practice has fallen into disuse, soarcely a vessel has left our port that has not carried away individu- als more or less indebted in the colony. Surely the members of our legislative council will SEC the danger to which the whole community is exposed by such a (tate of things, and will speedily adopt measures to prevent it. It is a very common outcry against us when we propose or advocate any measure for the protection of the subject, to exclaim-how repunn^nt to the laws of England t what becomes of British liberty ? But we are British born ourselves, and will yield our estimation of the constitution, our pride and sense -of British liberty to no man, and we maintain that ...

Tsd.-There is no subject which hu occasioned a greater controversy amongst dietetic writers than the sujy'eqto^tea. i}y onepartyit is decried as a poison; by.anotyer u'ii.extolled at a medicine, and a valua- ble addition toourjood : while some refer all its bé- néficiai effecta to the water thus introduced into the System, and its evil consequences to the high tempe- rature at which it is drank. In order to understand the. value of the different arguments which have been adduced .in support, or to the disparagement of this , beverage, it will be nccefsaiy to inquire into ils com , position. Two kinds of tea are imported into this cquntiy, distinguished by the epithets black and green. Both contain astringent and narcotic piin cíples, but in very different proportions ; the hater producing by far the most powerful influence on the servons system. As the primary operation of every narcotic is stimulant, tea is found to exhilirate and refresh us, although theirexist certain individuals...

THE MU8E. Oh! thou art faul in peace, and s.tormi no more, Shall reek their fury o'er thy fallen head ; Unheeded now shall the loud tempest roar. Nor harm thee couched beneath thine earthy bed, Thou to eternal rest hast wearied lied. Cold, dark and silent is this last retreat ; O'er thy green-roof the winter rains shall shrd Their humid dullness ;-midnight blasts shall beat, But thou in peace thalt sleep beneath the yew tree's [feet. In night's lorn noon, in winter's deepest hour, When stormy skies the waning moon-beams shroud, She shall usurp a momentary power, And from behind the low'ring wal'ry cloud, Tint with melancholy hue thy hillock round ; Cold shall be her ray-pole shall be her beam, Mer sickly sight shall mark thy hallowed ground., Then sink in shades of night, and all «hall see-in A solitary desert-silent as a dream !

THE TEACHER, No. I. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 12 April 1828

THE TEACHER, No. I.         The influence of prejudice and fashion has prevailed in nothing more than in the business of education. However averse to innovation, we cannot refuse to acknowledge innumerable blemishes in almost all our systems of instruction. To speak in general terms on   this subject, would be as useless as it would be tire- some—we will come at once to business. Suppose then we have a little child, 3, 4, or 5 years of age ready to begin to learn—what are we to do ? Buy him a spelling-book and teach him the alphabet, by repeatedly calling the letters to him until he knows their names by sight, and then go on teaching him long columns of unmeaning syllables, merely to show him the varions combinations which letters taken ab- stractedly have in the whole range of language. This is the usual method, and we do not wonder that it generally proves an irksome one both to teacher and scholar. We think these sp...

THE MUSE. -000-   Oh, when I was a tiny boy , My days and nights were full of joy,   My mates were blithe and kind!-- No wonder that I sometimes sigh, And dash the tear-drop from my eye, To cast a look behind !   A hoop was an eternal round       Of pleasure. In those days I found A top a joyous thing; But now those past delights I drop; My head, alas! is all my top, And careful thoughts the string ! My marbles--once my bag was stor'd,--   Now I must play with Elgin's lord,   With Theseus lor a taw !   My play ful horse has slipt his string. Forijoilen all his capering, And haruess'd to the law I My kite-how fast and fair it flew! Whilst I, a sort of Franklin, drew My pleasuie from ihe sky!
