THE COURIER. Strenue et Prospere. HOBART TOWN, TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 24. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 24 November 1840

THE COURIER. âtrrnue et lîtospm. HOBART TOWN, TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 24. WE have received Adelaide papers to the middle of November. The Abeona, which arrived the day after the Francis, brought no less than ttventy-six emigrants, chiefly females, all of whom have obtained immediate and profitable engagements. Colonel Gawler has written to Sir John Franklin, complaining of the arts which the Sydney people have used to seduce the Commissioners' emigrants under the apparent approval of the Government, but he rests quite assured Sir John Franklin will never sanc- tion such a proceeding. Sir John Franklin has nothing whatever to do with the matter, and we cannot help regarding this com- plimentary assurance as rather too good a joke, com- ing from the quarter whence it proceeds. What would the gallant Colonel have ? Would he have Sir John Franklin issue a mandate against their recep- tion, or put a duty per head upon them, as His Ex- cellency did upon the wheat of this country, when he got it...

LOCAL. ROAD ACT.—We postpone re-publishing this Act until we learn the decision of the Council upon the objections certified against it by the Puisne Judge. THE REGATTA.—We learn with pleasure that the gentlemen amateurs, about to contend in generous rivalry with each other at the ensuing Regatta, are all on the alert, and in constant practice on the water- this is as it should be-it exhibits a proper spirit, and a determination to do honour to themselves, and not to allow the ladies' purse to be walked away with in a lubberly manner. Whichever crew wins must do so upon the best of all principles, which will enable them to say that every man has done his duty. While upon the subject, we may observe, that it adds very materi- ally to the smartness of the appearance, as well as to the interest taken by the spectators in the race, when each boat adopts, as is usual upon such occa- sions 'at home,' a simple and neat uniform for the   crew with distinguishing colours.

INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 24 November 1840

INDIA. Burmah.-We have no authentic intelligence of the state of .flairs in Burmah. The reports of the week tend to the entire oppression of the late revolt, and consequently to the strength- ening of the present government. No particulars, however, have reached us on the subject. I It is now ceilain that the Queen's 02nd regiment is about lo be withdrawn from Moulmein, nnd transferred to Cal cuUa. This movement is probalrry made with a view to having tbia force in readiness for China, should the ' Ce- lestials' prove refractory.

SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 24 November 1840

SYDNEY. Immigrants of ' Royal Consort.'-This fine ship arrived on Monday, With all her people in good health, and they appear to be an able-bodied useful class of labourers, and arrive at a time when their services are in the highest extent required. As each successive arrival takes place, we are only the more awakened to the extent of our wants in respect to lubour, for the crowds that repair on board the vessels, may be taken as a slight indication only, of the numbers that are actually in want of servants, who do not go in search of them, solely from the convic- tion they entertain that others have been before them, and that so long as the demand is so much in excess of the supply, it is trouble thrown away. On the present occasion, scarcely was the anchor dropped, when the decks were thronged with applicants for servants, and before a few hours had elapsed, all the immigrants on board might have hired themselves at wages of from £30 to £35 per annum, with rations of 12lb. of flo...

SWAN RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 24 November 1840

SWAN RIVER. We have received the Perth Gazette to the 1st of August. The contents, generally, are unimportant and uninteresting. A general meeting of the pro- prietors of the Bank of Western Australia was held at Perth, on the 1st July. The return exhibited a considerable increase of business in every branch. The chairman, W. L. Brockman, Esq., congratulated the meeting on the prosperity of the establishment, and declared a dividend of 10s. per share for the current year. The minimum upset price of land has been raised to 12s. per acre, official notice of which has been published in the Government Gazette of that place. The Swans are greatly agitated by these doleful tidings. The Perth Gazette, alluding to the subject, says :-" All we can now say is, we are the victims of theoretical schemers ; and we can but too justly apprehend that a most serious and dangerous evil will arise out of this act of the Government-the tide at home which was rapidly running in our favour, is now again ...

PORT PHILLIP. THE EPISCOPAL CHURCH.-Yesterday's overland mail brings the intelligence that His Excellency the Governor has been graciously pleased to sanction the issue from the Colonial Treasury of the £1,000 due under the Church Act to the Episcopal Church, Melbourne.-Port Phillip Herald, Nov. 13. THE HARVEST.-The harvest is rapidly approaching ; some patches of barley on the Moonee Moonee Ponds, and elsewhere in the vicinity of the town, are already beginning to ripen. Mr. Fawkner, of Pascoe Vale, has a field of   barley which will be ready for the sickle before the close of the present week, and our readers may form some idea of the luxuriance of the crop, from the fact that seventy- five stalks have been reckoned proceeding from the same root, each stalk averaging upwards of fifty grains. In the course of another year, when Mr. Manton's steam mill gets fairly into operation, we may expect to see flour, of provin-     cial growth, an articl...

THE CABINET. Ye venerable groves ! whose open glades Invite the musing wanderer to your shades, Ye birds ! whose honied notes enthral the ear, Wake the bright morn, the darksome evening cheer, Ye fountains ! murmuring music as ye flow, ' Ye flowers 1 that on their purple margins glow. Ye winds 1 that o'er those flowers soft breathing play, Calm the hot sky, and mitigate the day ; Take mc, O take mc to your loved retreats ; All, all conspire to bless me with your sweets. Here in your soft enclosure let me prove The shade and silence of the life I lovel Not idle here ;-for, as I rove along, I form the verse and meditate the song ; Or mend my mind by what the wise have taught. Studious to be the very thing I ought. Here will I taste the blessings of content, No hope shall flatter, and no fear torment : Unlike the sea, the sport of every wind, And rich with wrecks, the ruin of mankind, My life an honest, humble praise shall claim, _ . As the small stream, scarce honoured with . name, Wh...

TRANSLATION OF SONNET BY T. TASSO. "Ninfa, onde lieto e di Diana il Choro." [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 27 November 1840

TRANSLATION OF SONNET BY T. TASSO. " Ninfa, onde lieto è di Diana il Choro.". A nymph I saw, of Dian's joyous band, Culling fresh flowers that fringed the glassy tide; But not so many fell beneath her hand ' As her fair foot did from their stein divide. Amongst her golden locks, by zephyrs fann'il, Love did ten thousand, thousand witcheries hide, While her soft breath, in accents sweet and bland, Cool'd the fierce fires her glances scattered wide. To view that snowy foot the Brcnta stay'd His course, and made of his own crystal stream A mirror for bright eyes and tresses fair. " Ah, beauteous nymph 1 when you depart," I said, " Upon the waves no more thy form may gleam, But still thine image the foud heart Shall bear." <( n W. M. D.

SOCIALISM. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 27 November 1840

SOCIALISM. There is no trait in the character of human nature more deplorable than the easiness with which it can be imposed upon by the fallacious zeal of knaves or madmen ; and the more so, when we reflect that this failing arises from the perversion of one of its most beautiful endowments, namely, its yearning after the perfect and the true. Man is betrayed by his own eager thirst to every mirage, that rises before him in his wanderings through the weary and uncertain ways of this mysterious life. But in most instances, not only a too ready credulity, but a somewhat perverse disposition in the nature of that credulity, is to be lamented, and it is sad to observe that the wilder and more noxious the meteor that attracts him, the more earnest and the more fatal his pursuit. No doctrine whatsoever, so dangerous, so inconsistent, so absurd, as not to boast its apostles and followers ; and tenets and opinions, which characterise madness or monomania in the individual, become in the no...

COLONIAL PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 27 November 1840

COLONIAL PRESSA PRIVATEERING.-A fine opportunity is now open for. the speciilatiBt, war having been declared by Great Britain '«gainst "China. The Lieutenant-Govcrnbr lins power to grant letters of marque and reprisal, and 'a schooner or brig from ISO to 200 tons would answer the purpose ad- mirably ; a long eighteen would be a sufficient equipment ; and three or four score of dare devils, with quantum stiff, of fire-arms and steel would, with a judicious commander, make very pretty pickings in the China seas. There would not be the slightest occasion to approach the seat of war, where the more legalised crafts are feathering their nests, but the coast of the Celestial Empire is of a boundless extent, from the numerous ports in which fleets of junks sail monthly to Japan and the Malay coast, and are also to be met with on their return ; the cargoes are generally of very considerable value, are easily to be ob laiued, the risk in a contest willi such imbeciles being as nought.
