THE HOBART-TOWN COURIER, SATURDAY NOVEMBER 10, 1827. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 10 November 1827

THE HOBART-TOWN COURIER, SATURDAY NOVEMBER 10, 1827. «Mj%i We had prepared an article on the subject of Revenue as derived from imported and colonial spirit, which we have been obliged to withdraw to accommodate our advertising 'friends, many of whose favours are, however, unavoidably postponed, on account of the late hour at which they reached us. -Thursday-evening or Friday noon, if short, is positively the latest hour at which they can be ad- mitted. The only alteration in the shipping at Hobart-town, during the week, is the sailing on the 7th inst. of the small sloop Recovery, for Launceston, with a cargo of goods and stores for the Van Die- men's land establishment, and the settlers on that side of the island. The schooner Flamingo has been chartered by the Van Diemen's. Land Company, and will sail in the course of the week for the set- tlement at Circular head. The Orelia sails for Sydney on Tuesday. The Rodney is daily expected from that port, and the George Home from England...

RURAL ECONOMY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 10 November 1827

RURAL ECONOMY. In a new country like this we conceive few subjects can be more interesting or more generally useful to the inhabitants than those connected with its agriculture and vegetable production either in the field or garden. Under the head of rural economy, we there- fore propose, as far as we can, to keep our readers informed, not only of the actual state of agriculture among ourselves, but also to collect for their guidance, the experience of learned and practical farmers and gardeners, as well in former times as at the present day. We invite then, the attention of our readers especially to this department of our Journal, and trust we shall not be wanting also of their contributions. The accumulation of really useful knowledge, and of the most approved modes of culture to the latest standard, which will thus be brought within our reach, will, we hope, tend in no small degree to render the Hobart-town Courier deserving a place in the libraries of Van Diemen's land. We have ...

CRITICAL NOTICES. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 10 November 1827

CRITICAL NOTICES. We have had the pleasure to see the first number of the South Asian Register, a quarterly work published at Sydney, price 7s. 6d. each number. It consists of 100 neatly printed pages, and does credit both to the typography and literature of New South Wales. The first article is the best. It contains an interesting discription of New Holland as far as our present knowledge goes. We lament with the author the apparent supineness of the British Government in later times, in not exploring the recesses of this   wonderful country. Mungo Park was offered £5000 to explore it, which he declined, but there are many Mungo Parks now in these colonies if they had but the means of setting out on journeys of discovery. The next article is a review of some poems written by Mr. Charles Thompson, a native of New South Wales. His muse is by no means despicable, and when more cultivated, may produce something that his great descriptive namesake would not have disdained t...

THE COUNTRY POST. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 10 November 1827

THE COUNTRY POST We observe with much pleasure that the inhabitants of Methven are taking active steps to erect a chapel in their district. This good work indeed proceeds with vigour throughout the island, chapels are erecting or about to be so, at Green ponds, Oatlands, the Clyde, Jericho and Methven and others are talked of at Campbell-town, and, in the districts of Bathurst and Lennox. When the word of life comes to be heard regularly from all these places we cannot but anticipate the most happy results among the population of this colony. A settler on the Macquarie river was convicted last week before the Police Magistrates of Oatlands and Campbell-town, of har- bouring and employing two runaway convicts during the space of 150 days, and was fined in mitigated penalties for the two offences,, amounting to three hundred and ten dollars. We have received a letter signed William Lawry, and Thomas Johnson relating the hardships they endured in shipping a cargo of wheat at Pittwater ...

THE HOBART-TOWN COURIER, SATURDAY NOVEMBER 17, 1827. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 17 November 1827

THE HOBART-TOWN COURIER, SATURDAY NOVEMBER 17, 1827. The means of easy and frequent communication constitutes the life and spirit of every civilized community. Since the main streets of Hobart-town have been completed, not only the comfort but the trade of the inhabitants has been much increased: and the Market   place, which it now nearly finished, will form a grand feature of improvement. Our ceaseless duties deprive us of the pleasure of personally viewing the improvements in the country, and we must rely chiefly for our information in that respect to our friends who are pleased to communicate with us through the medium of the country post By this conveyance we regret to say we hear la- mentable accounts of the state of the roads in most parts of the in- teríor. We ourselves indeed within the precincts of the town, can- not but observe the reluctance which many evince to form a foot- path before their doors, notwithstanding that Government has com- pleted the main st...

RURAL ECONOMY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 17 November 1827

RURAL ECONOMY. A society in France who style themselves " Société Anonyme de fructifícation générale" propose to put in culture 20 millions of acres of waste land, and to render productive 120 thousand leagues of watercourses. Their fund is 100 millions, and they are to pay 5 per cent, to the subscribers. M. Bailey of Paris has published a useful pamphlet on the sub- ject of ringing fruit trees. It consists of two parts, the one on fruit trees in general, and the other on the effect of ringing the vine. Ringing, he says, increases the diameter of the parts of trees, but not their length ; a fact explained by the theory of the ascending and decending sap. The latter is arrested in its progress by the circular cincision, as is proved by the thick edge which takes place on the upper margin of the wound, and by the diameter of the shoot, which in the vine in particular, acquires double the thick- ness above the wound that it does below it. But in proportion as the shoots are benefitted ...

THE COUNTRY POST. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 17 November 1827

THE COUNTRY POST. Russell's Falls.—On Monday a party of the black natives head- ed by that notorious character Black Tom, made its appearance   here and threatened Mr. Abbott's shepherd, who escaped from them by throwing down a bundle which he had in his hand. While they were engaged in examining it he contrived to run beyond their reach. They afterwards went to Mr. Stokell's farm, where they also found the shepherd, and we regret to add, compelled him to   accompany them ínto the woods, and he has not since been heard of. In all these cases it is proper to give information as quickly as possible to the nearest magistrate or district constable, and not as is too often the case either defer it till it is too late or come all the way to Hobart-town. We are sure we need not add one word to stimulate the exertions of the Field Police and Military on these occasions, Macquarie River.—-On Monday last Robert Taylor, of the Mac- quarie river, was convicted before J...

I THE HOBART-TOWN COURIER, SATURDAY NOVEMBER 24, 1827. The arrival of a mail from England has compelled us to abridge our usual narrative of domestic events.

Inquests were held at the Crown Inn, Norfolk plains, last week, on the bodies of Jos.
