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

THE COUNTRY POST. Richmond, May 30, 1828.- Mr. Lascelles, our Police Magistrate, arrived here last week, and com menced his magisterial duties.   Four men are now in custody on a charge of. as- sault and highway robbery near Kangaroo point, but' the person who has laid the charge is believed not to bc perfectly sane. He is sent to the Hospital in Ho bart-town that the surgeons may ascertain and report. their opinion on that point. Other charges have been made bythi.s man against different persons and of different natures, which as weil as the present we sincerely hope will be feund to originate solely in the poor man's own perturbed mind. JUNE 1, 1828, We have not heard any thing of the blacks for some time, the reason of which most probably is, that they are for the most part on the sea- coast at this season of the year. The last tribe heard of, was at Mr. Urquharts, on the Lake River, where about a fortnight ago they killed some sheep; a native girl 16 or 17 years of ...

To the EDITOR of the HOBART TOWN COURIER.

THE COUNTRY POST. CRosi'MARsn Market, June 6,1823? At the market held to-day, a number of cattle was brought.; forward, but like the market in March, the attendants J were all sellers and no buyers. ' It mnst be quite evident to every stockholder, that' the country is now quite overstocked; the demand by nonienns corresponding - with the increase, which is still going on at the same rate as when common country oows were at 101. to 121. a-head, and ewes at 20s. to 23s. Sj, It is supposed by well informed persons, that there cannot be less than 500,000 sheep, and 80,000 head of horned cattle in the country, and if they are allowed to increase nt the same rate they have hitherto done, in two years meat will be a's low as a penny or three halfpence per pound; a price which will not give the -stockholders the means of purchasing clothing, when even now many of them (ind great difficulty of doing so with the meat at three pence.

MARY'S GHOST. 'Twas in thc middle of the night, To sleep young William tried, When Mary's ghost came stealing in. And stood at his bedside. Oh, William dear! oh William dear!   My rest eternal ceases; Alas! my everlasting peace Is broken into pieces. I thought the last of all my cares     Would end with my last minute; But tho' I went to my long home I did'nt stay long in it. The body snatchers they have come And made a snatch at me, 'Tis very hard them kind of men   Won't let a body be,   You thought that I was buried deep,   Quite decent like and chary, But from her grave in Mary bone They've come and boned your Mary.     The arm that used to take your arm, Is took to Dr. Vyse;           And both my legs are gone to walk   The hospital at Guy's.
