Original Poetry. TO FLORA. FOR THE "HAWKESBURY COURIER." [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Courier and Agricultural and General Advertiser — 5 December 1844
TOR THE f HAWKESBURY COÜBIEB " Ye Tocal throng, that charm the bush. To you 1*11 sing nry^rief. Your tuneful notes «ny ca res may hush, And -give thy heart relief. To you I'll tell my love disdain'd, By her I love the best, Perhaps yon too in love are pain'd, And sorrows fill your breast. ïf so your voices hither bring, Let then with mine combine, You of your unkind loves can sing, And I will sing of mine. ï&lt;et"synipathy our notes attune, To sorrow's softest strain. And when the melting tale is done, We'll sing it o'er again. Ohl could tny strain but reach her ear, I think H would touch her heart, Vor gentle feelings harbour tbere,- j Although I've there no part. And could I but her pity move, Her love I'd hope to gain, For pity cousin is to love, As pleasure is to pain. The one the other oft succeeds, And often it is found, Tliit when the heart with sorrow bleeds, Pleasure heels up the wound. "Waft, waft, ye zephyrs gently blow, Mv strains into her ear, And let Tier all ...

Steam Power. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Courier and Agricultural and General Advertiser — 5 December 1844
Steam Power. A pint of water tnay.be evaporated by two ounces of coals. In its evaporation it swells into '216 gallons of steam, with a mechanical force sufficient to raise a weight of 37 tons a foot high. The »team thus produced has a pressure equal to that of common atmos pheric air ; and by allowing it to expand by virtue of its elasticity, a further mechanical j force may be obtained, at least equal in \ amount to the former. A piut of water, j therefore, and txvo ouuces of coals are thus j rendered capable of doing as much work i-s I is equivalent to 74 tons raised a foot high The circumstances under which the ste«ni i engine is worked on a railway are not fa . vouiable to the economy of fuel. Never theless, a pound of coke bumed in a locomo tive eugine, will evapoiate about five pints of water. lu their evaporation they will exert a mechanical force sufficient to draw two tons on the rail wa v, a distancé bf one mile in two minutes.

"HAWKESBURY COURIER. THURSDAY, DECEMBER 5, 1844. The Roads. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Courier and Agricultural and General Advertiser — 5 December 1844
THURSDAY, DECEMBER 5,1844. The Roads. Olm attention is forcibly directed to the long continued and daily increasing bad «tate of the Roads, which each successive rain, if only of few hours duration, renders in many places almost impassable; in fact, unless «orne very speedy steps are taken, we do not see how the wool and other pro duce in the interior is to be forwarded to Sydney for shipment or sale. There is an old proverb which says, " between two «tools one is sure of coming to the ground" ; «nd such is the position of the Colonists -with regard to the roads ; the District Councils on whom it was intended this matter should devolve, are not in operation ; .and the Government, with whom the matter previously Tested, are not authorised to pro ceed therewith, in consequence of the power having been taken out of their hands by the Act of Parliament, directing the consti tution of these'Councils. In this dilemma it behoves the Colonists to use every means -at their disposal to have t...

On the different applications of Lime. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Courier and Agricultural and General Advertiser — 5 December 1844
On tîie different appli cations of Lime. j HAVING seen some remarks in Davies* Agri cultural Chemistry on the effects of lime, in its caustic aud mild state, and not remem bering to have seen anything in the Gazette to the same effect, I would perhaps be al lowed to in ak H a few quotations ; be says, " quirk lime, when first made, is crusticand burning to the tongue, rendéis vegetable blues green, and is soluble in water ; but when combined with carbonic acid, it losrs its solubility and burning taste, aud becotm-s the same as chalk or limestone, being whnt is termed milk Um» or carbonate of lime/* '.Quick lime," be further observes, ** is in jurious to plants, and limewater tn this stale would destroy vegetation. But lime, when it is so long exposed to the airas to become mild, it is a useful ingredient in all soils which do not effervesce in acids. Lime, bi slacking, absorbs about one-third its weight of water, and is termed hydrate of lime,«ntl by long exppsure to air, the water...

Family Notices [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Courier and Agricultural and General Advertiser — 5 December 1844
Died, &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; At his residence in Queen street, Auckland, New Zealand, on the 23rd September, very suddenly, DUDLEY SINCLAIR, Esq., &nbsp; eldest son of Sir GEORGE SINCLAIR, Bart. The deceased was one of the first band of enterprising and respectable settlers who, emigrated to New Zealand under the aus- pices of the New Zealand Company. At &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; the formation of Auckland, Mr. Sinclair, however, removed from Port Nicholson, and took up his residence at Auckland, with the rise and progress of which he was intimately connected. Independent of his very extensive speculations in land, Mr. Sinclair was also engaged for the last two years in mercantile transactions. We believe his main object in coming to New Zealand was to make an effort to redeem his patrimonial estates from liabilities &nbsp; incurred by his grandfather the late cele- brated Sir John Sinclair, who, from a pa- triot...
