THE ANNUAL REPORT OF THE MISSION TO THE ABORIGINES, LAKE MACQUARIE INLET, 1840. To the Honorable the Colonial Secretary, E. Dea[?] Thornton, Esquire, &c., &c., &c. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 17 May 1841

THE ANNUAL REPORT OF THE MISSION TO THE   ABORIGINES, LAKE MACQUARIE INLET, 1840.   To the Honorable the Colonial Secretary, E. Deas Thomson, Esquire, &c., &c., &c.   Sir, — Early in the present year a person publicly boasted " that prussic acid had been administered to the   aborigines at a station up the country, where they died   about the place like rats ;" and although, upon investi-   gation, it was not substantiated, yet the vaunt of that in-   dividual who boasted of its occurcnce as a capital way of   getting rid of the blacks without troubling the govern- ment, showed sufficiently what manner of spirit he was   of, whilst his subsequent transportation to Van Diemen's   Land for horse stealing, will prevent for a season the   exercise of his diabolical machination on human beings   of a better dis...

THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. MONDAY, MAY 17. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 17 May 1841

THE UUftCESTQiS OOOiiEi. MONDAY, MAY 17. It is said tbat the Legislative Council will meet for tbe despatch of business, on the first of June next, and tbat another Road Act, pre pared by Captain Sttanston, will then be sub mitted to their consideration. If so, a draft of the intended Act, ought to be immediately printed and circulated, to give time for discus sing its merits prior to the meeting of tbe Council. The press should correct the proofs of all public measures, and the Council after wards attend to tbe revise. The Settlers on the Upper Macqnarie are all on tho qui vive as to irrigation. The embank ment of Toomb's L-akc has fully answered their expectations, and (with tbe material — as it were — in band) they have now only to consider how they can most judiciously appropriate it. The Ross Mills hitherto driven by the ' Black mail,' now dance to the tune of the ' Mac quarie.' The course of this latter river from Mona Vale, downwards, has but a trifling fall per mile, and the...

' But you had promised ! Here — here — is your written oath — deliberately signed — solemn- ly sworn to — never to approach the gaming table again. It is broken. You are a perjuror. You are no son of mine.' ' It was in a moment of hilarious revel that I allowed myself to be ensnared into the commis sion of an act abhorent to my soul.'

THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. MONDAY, MAY 24. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 24 May 1841

THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. ; ? MONDAY, MAY 24. Ooe attention has been directed to a para graph in a contemporary, relating to the Queen's Orphan School, the truth of which we regret exceedingly to say is beyond doubt. We will first copy the statement of our contemporary, and then subjoin a few remarks of our own. ' Some fortnight back, happening to be present on the landing of the passengers by the coach from Hobart Town, our attention was directed to the wretched ap pearance of two young lads, whom, on enquiry, we learnt were forwarded from the Queen's Orphan School. Their abject appearance induced us to examine them more attentively; they were literally ragged and starved; the youngest, who was seven years of ago, was less than half the growth he would have been, had nature not been checked by bad treatment; his stinted squalid ap pearance produced feelings anything but favorable to the conduct of those persons entrusted with the manage ment of the children at the Queen's Orphan Scho...

WHISKEY TODDY. Bentley's Miscellany for December. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 31 May 1841

WHISKEY TOBDY. Come merrily push round the toddy, Tbe cold winter nights are set in ; To a roquelaire wrapped round the body Add a lining of lamb's-wool within I This liquor was brewe'd by my grandam, In a snug quiet still of her own ; 'Tis fit for my Lord in his tandem, And royal King Will on his throne. In die glass see it sparkles and ripples, And how it funs merrily down ! , The absolute monarch of tipples, And richly deserving a crown 1 Of mirth 'tis the spring and the fountain, And Helicon's stream to the Muse; Tbe pleasanlest dew of the mountain — So give it, good fellows, its dues. It opens the heart of the miser, And conjures up truth from the knave ; It makes my Lord Bishop look wiser, — More frisky the curate, his slave. It makes the glad spirit still gladder, And moistens the splenetic vein ; When I can't see a hole through a ladder, It mounts on the sly to my brain. Then push round the glasses, be cosey, Fill bumpers to whiskey and whim ; Good luck to each man, while hi...

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. (Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 31 May 1841

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. /Continued. I The glen where this murder is said to have taken place, is immediately in the rear .of Elian Gowan House, and yet retains the name of Mike Howe's Gulley ; the source whence ihe narrative is supplied, having been an old ticket of-leave man, who spoke of it as an event coming within his own knowledge. Having frequently in these pages, introduced the name of Howe, it may, perhaps, prove not uninteresting, to give a rapid sketch of the close of his career. After Jong harassing the .colonists, and committing many murders, and other acts of violence, he was forced to retire to the Shannon tier. Here a scheme was devised for his capture, the execu tion of which was entrusted to a convict named Worral, and one Warburtoni a soldier of the forty-sixth. Howe was enticed, upon some pretext or other, to visit a hut situated on the Shannon Plains, at a spot now forming the lawn of Hunterston ; wilhin the hut, the men above-: mentioned had made their preparations f...
