COLONIAL PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 20 November 1840
COLONIAL PRESS. COURTEOUS RETORT.-We feel greatly indebted to the Hobart Town Advertiser for the very complimentary no tice he bestowed upon us. However " contemptible an affair," our "single sheet of demy" may appear to him, we will at least guarantee that our space shall never be perverted by attempts at obscene wit, nor will we ever reduce ourselves to the humiliating position of becoming a common hack, doomed to " carry the panniers" for a livelihood. He may well cry out for support-are the panniers heavy ? As to his boast, (which is modestly in- tended for himself, as any one will see the intended appli- cation of his analogy)-about being able to " afford" to publish twice a week, it may do to try and palm such stuff upon the public, but with those who are better ac- quainted with the routine of a newspaper establishment it will not do to claim merit for making a sacrifice when it is done with the expectation of reaping a profit. As, however, our contemporary has so much space ...

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 24 November 1840
MISCELLANEOUS. Hints to Wives.-Make yourself so agreeable to your husband that he will see there is no true happiness absent from his home. Be always becomingly dressed, and have your household and yourself perfectly clean and comfort- able looking. But beware how you show too earnest a desire to keep him at home, as men ure selfish creatures, and seldom- feel much beyond what relates to their per- sonal convenience. If he thinks you suspect bim, nnd are acting a part, there is an end to all your influence. If your solicitude flows from real uffection so much the bet- ter, as you will be impelled by your love to study his wishes and tastes, which is the surest way with most men to secure their regard for you in return. Many a man has been mortified, and ruined, by having a slattern for his wife. It is very rare that a man becomes intemperate and vicious when his wife is thoroughly neat and tidy in her person and her house. As long as she is inviting und tasteful in her appearance, a...

THE CABINET. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 24 November 1840
THE CABINET. BLEST Solitude ! when life's gay hours arc past, Howc'cr we range, in thee we fix at last. Tossed through tempestuous seas, the voyage over, Pale, we look back, and bless thy friendly shore ; Our own strict judges, our past lives we scan, And ask if virtue has enlarged the span : If bright the prospect, we the grave defy, ?; Trust future ages, and contented die. For men to judge of their condition by the decrees of God which are hid from us, and not by his word which is near ton* and in our hearts, is as if a man wandering in the wide tea, in a dark night when the heaven is all cloudea about, should yet resolve to steer his course by the stars which he cannot see, but only guess at, and neglect the compass, which is at hand and would afford him a much better and more certain direction.-' TiUotson. The brave only know how to forgive ; it is the most refined and generous pitch of virtue human nature can arrive st Cowards have done good and kind actions, cowards have *&...
THE HEATHER FOR ME! [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 24 November 1840
THE HEATHER FOR ME1 Bonny's the blushing rose at e'en ; Bonny's the violet blue ; Noble's the oak wi' its acorns green, And broad leaves tipp'd wi' dew. But autumn's chill the rose will fade, And fell'd the oak may be ; I'd gie ye both for one single blado Of heather-the heather for mel 'Tis bonny to sit in leafy bower When song delights the ear ; To feel the odour of every flower Blend wi' music near ; But I 'm for a seat on my hunter's back, And then, for melody, One blast of the bugle to follow his track O'er the heather I-the heather for me 1 MAC GSAS,

A New Zealander appeared with his face bound up, ho having been wounded in the mouth the night previous by having had a pistol discharged at him by a steward of the American vessel now in the harbour ; an investigation took place, and it appeared in evidence that the accident, which it really was, originated in a lark, the defendant not knowing the pistol to bo loaded. As it was, it was really a very narrow escape for the poor New Zealander, who appealed much ex* cited, and on a smile appearing upon the Magistrate's mouth, he very graphically said-dot you may laugh M User Price, but mc tell you, dut suppos...

As the writer's viens differ materially from my own, 1 bo« to say a few words relative to his communication. He says, that if notice of a birth or death, which may be trans- mitted through the post, bo given in proper time,Hie informant can sign the entry at nny subsequent period. Without ani- madverting on the extreme latitude of Hie word any, which ap- pears to ino exceptionable, I shall state the grounds on which I aflirmed that the informant must sign his name at the time of registration. This is not only the most obvious and generally received con- struction of the Act, but certain parties who hnve sent a written notice to the Deputy Registrar, have actually been given to un- derstand by that oilicer, that no entry could be made until the informant was present to attest it with his signature-what con- clusi...
