THE CABINET. How sweet a thing is Death, to all who know That all on earth is vanity and woe; Who taught by sickness, long have ceased to dread The stroke thal bears them to this peaceful bed I Few are our days, yet while those days remain, . v Our joy must yield to grief, our case to pain ; Then tell me, weary pilgrim 1 which is best, The toilsome journey-or the traveller's rest?-F Home 1 'tis the name of all that sweetens life ; It speaks the warm affection of a wife, ' The lisping babe that prattles on the knee In all the playful grace of infancy. The spot where fond parental love may traca The growing virtues of a blooming race. Oh 1 'tis a word of more than magic spell, Whose sacred power the wanderer best can tell ; He who, long distant from his native land, Feels at her name his eager soul expand ; Whether as patriot, husband, father, friend, To thut dear point his thoughts his wishes bend ; And still he owns, where'er his footsteps roam, Lite's choicest blessings centre all ...

THE THEATRE. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 20 November 1840
THE THEATRE. A scandalous and malicious attack has appeared tit a contemporary journal against the present manage- ment of the Theatre, under the conduct of Mr. and Mrs. Clarke, which professes to emanate from a desire to erect a moral standard of refinement amongst a promiscuous audience, ('Tuer, gentle reader, is the judge I) but in reality originating from the basest and the most sordid of motives. Mrs. Clarke ha» long struggled through many difficulties, and jet the voice of the poor woman is made the theme of harsh and unfeeling observation. This of itself would be sufficient to HOW the benevolent intention* of the author, if there were not other unfailiug >»* dications of a personal complexion about it-but we shall in our next deal summarily with it and its-con* coctors. Some person who had a hand in the getting up of the performance-was there the accompaniment I of a fiddle ?-cut it out and sent it enclosed in a letter to Mr. Clarke. We trust the good feeling of that commu...

THE COURIER. SttrnuE et Prospere. HOBART TOWN, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 20. TUB barque Francis has arrived from Port Lincoln, with four married steerage passengers and one single man. This shows that there is a " tide in the affairs of "-emigration ! Mr. Justice Montagu has certified against the Road Act. The Council must therefore be re-assembled, to know whether or not they will adhere to the Act, or give way to the objections of His Honor. Wa direct attention to a Prospectus for the esta- blishment of a '* Self-Supporting Dispensary," which this day appears in our columns. It is to be con- ducted under the superintendence of Doctor Bedford, whose name is itself a sufficient guarantee for the support of the community. The want of such an insti- tution is severely felt among the poorer classes, who are unable, in cases of sickness among them, to bear the expense of a medical attendant, or even to defray the cost of the druggist's bill. The mechanic or the labourer seldom thinks of the rain...

ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. HOUSE OF COMMONS, JUNK 2. SCOTTISH LAW AND LAW OFFICERS.

SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 20 November 1840
SYDNEY. After Mr. Jones's resolutions referring to emigia tion had been all proposed aim seconded 'Hie Bishop observed, that the resolutions had hisap proval, but that the one ic-pecting which hp was most de- sirous to express his sentiments, was the »nilli, in which reference was made to the moral slate and character of j this community, »V it li regard to Hie general question of einigiution lhere remained indeed but lillie lo be said. He had ucted as chan man of se*ei,il committees on the sub- ject, which had examined evidence lo a considerable ex lent, and had presented moic than one icport.

CHINA NEWS. (From the Port Phillip Herald, November 6.) [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 20 November 1840
CHINA NEWS. (From the Port Phillip Herald, November 6.) The Singapore, from Singapore, brings news from that place to the 24th August, and from China to the 24th June. The newspapers to the 20th August contain no Singapore news of any interest here, if we except a series of letters from some travelling Baron Munchausen who treats the Singaporeans toa variety of pictures of Australian life and manners, bearing about as close a resemblance to the truth as his pro- totype's story of the frozen tunes in the postillion's horn. i Private letters received by the Singapore state that, previous to the sailing of that vessel, news had been received of the departure of Sir Robert Arhuthnot with 20,000 British and Indian troops from Canton on the march to Pekin. The same letters state that the Chinese authorities had attempted to poison the British troops by poisoning the tea ; but their fiendish Scheme had recoilpil upon thonaeclvca, Cut llic British declining to purchase from the brokers, the...

THE REVIEW. How now, thou black and midnight hag.—MACBETH. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 20 November 1840
THE REVIEW. How now, thou black and midnight hag.-MACBETH. That old harridan the Review is again at her " aunlicnt and fish-like" occupation. She is growing melodious, like a swan at its demise. She strains her throat the more only as her strength decays. This market venderin has been long known to the Police as a purveyor of plaice- and a secret ensconcer of small fry. She reminds one exactly of I a man we read of some years since, who was a filcher of fish, but who strutted through Billingsgate as a perfect Triton uniong the minnows. He was brought before the ¡ Lord Mayor, and his examination excited much mirth at the trial. The guardian of the market deposed lo having pursued him on one occasion, when, lo ! a quantity of soles darted out from his arms, his throat, and legs, at every step he took. There were soles here-soles there_and soles every where. This accomplished angler had contrived to stow away several dozen of fish about his body, which became flying-fish, as he quickly...
