Extraordinary Eyes. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 3 April 1829

Extraordinary Eyes.             The following story of an English child, with an inscription on on the eyes, (it would be a pity were the French to produce the only wonder of the kind), appears in the Manchester Guardian. "The French child, with Emperor Napoleon on his eyes, that now attracts so much attention in the metropolis, is perhaps sur- passed by another boy, 11 years of age, who was lately in this town, having the name of his father, John Wood, perfectly legible on the iris of his right eye, and the date of his birth, '1817,' on that of his left. A gentleman in High-street, who examined the boy, vouched to us for the truth of this state- ment. The letters are of a faint, of a light blue colour. Those on the right eye, particularly the word 'Wood,' are distin- guishable without much difficulty ; but not so the date on his left. It should however be observed, that there is great diffi- culty, in get...

      Assigned Servants.   Mr. Editor,-When an assigned servait has been found guilty of a minor crime or offence, he is usually sentenced by the Magistrate to hard labour for some months in a chain   gang ; and, at the expiration of his term of sentence, is returned to his master, more confirmed in evil by the advice and example of his associates than before. It has long been con-   sidered a matter of no ordinary hardship with Settlers, that they should be compelled to receive such worthless charac- ters back again, to poison the minds and corrupt and render dissatisfied the more industrious and well-disposed portion of their servants.         After hardened offenders have been subjected to regular   compulsory manual labour, or to any other sort of corporal punishment, it is impossible they can have the will or the in- clination to do thei...

Whales. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 10 April 1829

Whales Just as our paper was going to press, two of these "Mon-   sters of the Deep," with which our harbours abound, made their appearance, at the very sterns of the ships lying in our Harbour, gamboling about at their pleasure. Our active whalers (the Tasmanian Youth's) immediately manned their boats. Lucas, threw the first " harpoon," but, missed.— Young was more fortunate--he struck his man, and secured one of those immense creatures, who spouted up blood like a flood when lanced. An amazing quantity of porpoises at- tended their great " Captain,"' even after he was killed. What a source, of wealth does not this branch of industry alone afford to our Colonists, if only properly encouraged !
