POETRY. ON THE BIRTH OF THE PRINCESS ROYAL. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 3 May 1841

POETRY. ON THE BIRTH OF THE PRINCESS ROYAL. liaise high the soug, and hail the genial morn. On which the daughter of our Queen was born I Whose reign, so blest with peace, with concord's smiles, Lends richest blessings to these happy isles t And may no envious ill, no hostile rate, Mo treach'rous friendship, and no open hate. Disturb the hopes, so fair, so bright, so mild, Sent by -kind heav'n to hail the royal child. May easy grace adorn that infant brow, And may her life be free from grief as now; Care fly away, and every bliss most sweet Attend her palh and make her joys complete? Still may her mind and heart alike improve, Still may she win her parents'— nations'— love ; And every noblest bliss to mortals given, Rain on her brows like falling dews from heav'n I

THE LAUNCESTON COURIER, MONDAY, MAY 3. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 3 May 1841

THE UUS8CEST0N COURIER, MONDAY, MAY 3. ' I owe my success in business chiefly to you,' said a stationer to his paper-maker, as they were settling a large account ; ' but let me ask, how a map of your caution came to give credit so freely to a beginner with my slender meanB?' ' Because,' replied the paper maker, at whatever hour in the morning I passed to my business, I always observed you without your coat at yours.' Different persons will have different degrees of success, and every man must expect to ex perience ebbs and flows of fortune. The mer chants, shopkeepers, and others connected with trade, have, since the introduction of the Insol vent Act, been exposed to very severe losses from the great number of honest and dishonest persons who have taken the benefit thereof during the last twelve months, and which has now become a subject of very considerable im portance, especially to the mercantile part of the community. No doubt the present state of affaire has been greatly augme...

MISCELLANEOUS. Phrenology in the Thirteenth Cen- j tort. — 'The disposition- of the ~part$,of the 1 human body present numerous varieties, which, I when interpreted by art, seem to correspond 1 with different dispositions of the mind. Our I masters in this art of interpretation are Aristode, I Avicerines, Constaritine, Palemon, Loxus/Pale-. I moteus. We will follow in their train. .''.'A i very large head is an ordinary sign of stiupidiiyl 1 a very small one betrays the absence of jpdg- v I ment and memory. A head flat and sunk ia .

The Campbelton Ball. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 3 May 1841

The Campbelton Ball. ' Well! well 1 my love— you may go,'— was the per mission at length extorted by the delighted * * * * * from her reluctant papa. Away flew the happy girl to her boudoir, and the Campbelton Ball thenceforward held undisputed sway over her thoughts. Her toilette (never otherwise than chaste) required but a few mi nutes to render it elegant, and within an hour from the surrender of her father's scruples, our heroine was on her road to the Ball. . But she shall speak for herself (premising first) what the artless girl could not — would not— of herself b^ye said : viz.|— that her's was a beauty of that peerless kind, that claims an unconditional homage at first sight, nor could she boast the searching espiegle eye which makes a conquest ere the admirer is conscious of bis captivity. She was fair, but far from being a blonde, was of a light figure and graceful carriage, dark hair, and a step light and bounding as an Arab steed's. The foot which imprinted that step nee...

THE BROKEN-HEARTED ONE. (Continued from our last.) [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 17 May 1841

THE BROKEN-HEARTED ONE. (Continued j rent our last.) Suddenly a door of the mansion opened, and a lady, leaning on the arm of a man, still young, crossed the grass-plot. The gentleman tenderly pressed the hand of the lady in his own, and then put it to his lips. She recog nised in the couple who appeared so happy, him whom she had been nroud to call husband — the father of her children; him whom she had deceived ; him whom she had fled ; and in the female, the oue whom he had chosen to replace her, and who now performed the duties that she had violated. Repentance had ren dered her so humble, that after the first pang which this sight caused her, she thanked Divine Justice that she had been allowed to see him once more, enjoying the happiness he so well merited, whose repose she now no longer feared he had destroyed for ever. She wished to retrace her steps ; but, ready to faint, she had need of some one to sustain her, when the sound of several voices obliged her to seek concealmen...
