THE DEW-DROP AND THE ROSE. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 17 November 1840
THE DEW-DROP AND THE ROSE. A Dew-drop fell on a Rose's breast, Deep in her cup he fell, And there he lay in tranquil rest.. And deem'd he'd ever dwell. / She hid lum in her leaves so bright, /' ,, . ;- ' Whilst he lay bush'd beneath, , -r ..-»-&lt; '..&lt; O'er him she watch'd till morning light, ' . And lann'd him with her breath. , ~ , The young Dew-drop enamour'd grew, "*" ' *" And loved awny the hours ; Unheeded the soft zephyr flew, And blush'd the neighbouring flowers. The Rose's treasured guest was there, Till sultry noon was high She had no doubt, distrust or care, Fear'd no inconstancy. And now the Drop said to his Rose, (And sparkled on the fair,) " Thy perfumed leaves, my love, unclose,-« I long to breathe the air." The Rose obey'd ; domestic, kind, And full of tenderness, She deem'd none'dearcr he could find, Or e'er could love her less. A lovely sunbeam, gay and warm, Came rambling down that «ay; She mark'd the glittering Dew-drop's form. And paused her ...
MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 17 November 1840
MISCELLANEOUS. The Morning after Waterloo.-Belgian Ladies.-In the morning, the scene surpassed all imagination, und bailles every description ; upwards of 40,000 wounded French, Belgians, Prussians, and English, intermingled with carts, waggons, and every vehicle attainable, continually arriving, heaped with unfortunate sufferers. The wound- ed were laid, friends and foes indiscriminately, on straw, with avenues to pass between them, in every part of the city, while nearly destitute of surgical attendance. My pen cannot describe the humane and indefatigable exertions of those praiseworthy ladies of Brussels ; their magnanimity surpasses all comments; without exception, all were busily employed, some strapping and bandaging wounds, others serving out tea, coffee, soups, and all other soothing nourishments ; others employed in stripping the poor sufferers of their gory and saturated garments, and dressing them in clean shirts, und other habiliments. Such facts must ever draw forth the...
COLONIAL PRESS. "Hil tattered clothes his poverty bespeak, His hoary locks proclaim his lengthened years. And many a furrow down his cares worn cheek, Has been the channel for a flood of tears." [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 17 November 1840
COLONIAL PRESS. .. Hil tattered clothes his poverty bespeak, His hoary locks proclaim his lengthened years. And many a furrow down his care-worn cheek, Has beeu the channel for a flood of tears." M'ho that has bad his eyes about him, while perambu- lating this town, but must have observed numerous aged and decayed people wandering about, evidently not pos- sessing the means of support, and destitute even of tho necessary shelter from the iuclemcucy of the weather; relying altogether for sustenance and protection from the .pitiless storm, upon the Immune and charitable. This is anything but an overdrawn picture, and may be daily wit- nessed in the streets, adding another to the many blots disgracing the escutcheon of the present Colonial Go\ em- inent. In Sydney there is, and has been for many years, a most exteusive establishment, entitled, " The Benevo- lent Society," supported by subscriptions and an annual Vote of the Council. In this establishment, there aie always upwards of 10...
SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 17 November 1840
SYDNEY. His Excellency in his closiug apspcia, au iuc aJjnnro.- ' . jBCDtj»r tb» late Session of the Legislative Cuuncil, inti- mated the probability of his not remaining much lunger at the bead of this Government. We have not a file of the ?Sydney Gazette at hand to refer to, but as nearly as we eau remember, we think we are right in saying that, about ten months ago, we stated that we had received private in. formation of the intention to remove Sir George Gipps from the Government of New South Wales. We took occasion also to observe, that the removal of Sir George Gipps was not determined upon by the Colouial Minister on account of any displeasure entertained towards Sir George Gipps, but the removal would be consequent upon an ullerution then in contemplation, in the constitution of our present Government. Our informant said that the name of the successor had not escaped at that period ; a later letter from the lame party mentions the names of one or two gentlemen, but he does n...
TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 17 November 1840
TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. SIR,-New Norfolk, as the site for the proposed College, appears to be very objectionable to a great proportion of the in , habitants of Hobart, many of whom are well qualified to form ..correct opinion. Is it not then somewhat surprising that no exertion has been made, either by petition, subscription, or otherwise, to induce the Lieutenant-Governor to place the College on the site which seems very generally to be approved ? I refer to the upper point of the Government Domain at New Town. It is, however, not too late to make the attempt, and if you will use your influence to bring the subject under the seri- ous consideration of the inhabitants, successful measures may, I hope, still be adopted. . The cause of New Norfolk being chosen is to me unaccount- able. So far as any personal consideration could have influ- enced His Excellency, I should conceive it would have been unfavourable to that town, since the vicinity of the workmen will render the Gover...

ENGLISH. THE GREAT OBJECT OF GOVERNMENT—THE PUBLIC HEALTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 17 November 1840
ENGLISH. THE GREAT OBJECT O GOVERNMENT-THE PUBLIC HEALTH. QUARTERLY REVIEW.-Paradoxical as it may appear, it is certain that a man's health, nay life, is nearly as much in the keeping of those of whom he knows nothing as in his own. Of the three influences mainly acting on it himself, society, and external nature-the first bears on it - most intensely, the second most covertly, the last most constantly. Moral culture may teach the individual su to , curb his passions and appetites as to develope all the forces of his organisation in their most healthful scope, or its neglect may set them loose as the deadliest instruments of self-destruction. The social system acts upon us not ', only, through its fashions und customs, but by the power of government ; and au ill considered impost indirectly .' affecting (he food, the habitation, or the clothing of the i, community, shall send more to their graves than ever fell by sword or spear. Climate is always so greatly amelio- rated by civilis...
THE COURIER. Strenue at [?]rospere. HOBART TOWN, TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 17. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 17 November 1840
THE COURIER. Sftvtaw et Dtosçerr. HOBART TOWN, TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 17. OUR advices from Sydney reach to the 2nd of November. The Session of the Legislative Council had closed, after a long debate upon immigration. Mr. Jones introduced the subject with an appendage of no less than sixteen resolutions, the substance of | which might have been far better comprised within one-fourth of the number. The Bishop of Australia made a most admirable speech, for which the inhabi- tants of New South Wales and this colony ought to feel grateful, more particularly when they bear in mind the fact that his strictures were levelled with no less boldness than truth against His Grace the Arch- bishop of Dublin, and the Kev. Dr. Dickenson, for the part which they took in the Dublin meeting, con- vened purposely for promoting emigration to New Zealand. A Cenum Bill had passed, which it appeared con- tained some obnoxious clauses, against which the Attorney-General had protested as being illegal, in which o...

THE GREAT EIGHT-OARED CUTTER MATCH BETWEEN THE GENTLEMEN OF THE UNIVERSITIES OF CAMBRIDGE AND OXFORD. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 17 November 1840
THE GREAT EIGHT-OARED CUTTER MATCH BE- j TWEEN THE GENTLEMEN OF THE UNIVERSITIES OF CAMBRIDGE AND OXFORD. This contest between the gentlemen of the two universi- ties was the greatest we ever remember to have witnessed, and drew a much larger assemblage than any other corre- sponding exhibition. There was not a spot of ground or water that could afford the fair chance of a passing view, but yesterday found an inhabitant, and to those who take a delight in boat-racing the treat was one of the first order. It is unnecessary for us to dilate upon the advan- tage's resulting from rowing; both universities have for half a century indulged in this healthful recreation, and, as amateurs, have, both with sculls and oars, been first rate artistes. The match had from the first moment created considerable sporting interest, and this, with the desire to obtain the honour of beating, had induced the several gentlemen to go into the training absolutely requisite for a struggle of this description...
