THE COUNTRY POST. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 24 May 1828

THE COUNTRY POST   Brandon Hall, Tea-tree Brush, May 11, 1828. - As I was proceeding, about noon this day, after my cattle, I heard the report of a gun. and Immedi- ately directed my steps to the place that the sound seemed to come from. When I got within about 30 yards of the spot, I saw two men standing, one of them having a gun presented at one of my cows. I straightway asked him what he was about, when he turned round in an instant and discharged his gun directly upon me, but providentially missed me. As. quickly as I could I discharged my own gun at the same man whom I think I must have wounded. The other man then ran after me, and I narrowly escaped to Mr. Wilkinson's. Mr. Wilkinson's overseer and another of his servants returned, with me, with fire-. arms, as. quickly as we could to the spot, but we could find nothing but my cow wounded in two dif- ferent places with two balls, in consequence of which in a few hours after she died. Thomas Bonney.   T...

THE n HOBART-TOWN COURIER. J SATURDAY MAY 31, 1828. Complaints daily reach us from all parts, of the pre. sent high rate of wages, compared with tho low prices obtained for colonial produce. We are, however, de- cidedly adverse to any measure on the part of govern- ment or otherwise, which would regulate in any way the remuneration for labour. The experience of all preceding ages affords abundant proof of .the injury which such interference universally occasions. , It is very well for public writers, such as we, to recom- mend this and that plan or undertaking. , Tu a new country like this, there will every day be starting up abundant materials for such advice, both to the public and the government; aud in this way many useful hints are obtained which otherwise, would have been lost. Nevertheless the public, and the individuals who compose that public, are the best judges of what suits their own interest. The same reasoning extends with increased force to distant colonies ; a sort o...

THE MUSE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 7 June 1828

THE MUSE' Come, my crony, let's think upon far away days j And lift up a little oblivion's veil, Let's consider the past with a lingering gaze, Like a peacock whose eyes are inclined to its tail. Ay, come, let us turn our attention behind, ..Like those critics whose.heads are so heavy, I fear, That they cannot keep up with the march of.the mind, And so turn face about, for reviewing the rear. Looking over time's crupper and over his "tail, O what ages and pages there are to revise! . And as farther our back-searching glances prevail, Like the emmets, how little we are in our eyes! What a sweet pretty innocent half a yard long, On a dimity lap bf true nursery make; lean fancy 1 hear the old lullaby song, That was meant to compose me but kept me awake. -Methinks I still suffer the infantine throes, When my flesh was a cushion for any long pin? Whilst they patted my body to comfort my woes, ? Oh! haw little they dreamt they were driving them in! Infant sorrows are strong?infant pleasur...

In furtherance of this plan I have pur- chased the island of Zuiriquina, in the bay of Talca- huana, which is the sea port of Conception; the al- most parity of latitude, the goodness of the pastu- rage and mildness of the climate, have made me con- sider that such a situation would bu extremely advan- tageous for breeding merino sheep.
