THE HOBART—TOWN COURIER, SATURDAY DECEMBER 1,1827. DEATH OF MR. CANNING. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 1 December 1827

THE HOBART-TOWN COURIER, SATURDAY DECEMBER 1,1827. DEATH OF MR. CANNING. The intelligence of our native land brought by the ship George Hume is swallowed up in this melancholy event. After a short ill- ness, by which his frame was worn to a skeleton he expired at Chis wick, at 4 o'clock on the morning of the 8th of August, in the     very room where the late Mr. C. J. Fox died. How much it was     deplored, not only by England, but the whole of Europe, may be learned from the following extract from the; Journal des debats.—   "Statesmen disappear from the political stage in England with frightful rapidity. The tomb is scarcely closed upon the Marquis of Londonderry ere it is reopened to receive the remains of Mr. Canning. His death has occasioned a consternation perhaps with- out example in history. Never did the loss of an individual excite greater interest or create greater alarm." The event touches us in Van Diemen'...

THE COUNTRY POST. (He is the best friend of his Country who lets in most light upon its condition). [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 8 December 1827

THE COUNTRY POST (He is the best friend of his Country who lets in most light upon its condition). Launceston — The blacks came within 4 miles of town on the Norfolk plains road last week, and gave chace to some people, but I have not heard of any mischief that they have committed.   Methven — The Aborigines have not attempted any outrage in this neighbourhood, since the death of Mr. Bennett ; and we can- not too severely deprecate the conduct of those who propagate un- founded accounts to the contrary, so as to intimidate families and individuals. There is no truth in what was reported in town as having taken place near Mr. Harrison's last week, and we believe, we may safely assert that no person has seen a black native on either of those three districts since the distressing event before al- luded to.     Break-of-day plains — Last week, two black females came to Mr. Talbot's, evidently sent as spies by a horde to which they belong- ed. They ...

THE COUNTRY POST (He is the friend of His Country who lets in most light upon its condition).       Launceston.— On Tuesday as a man was travelling from Hobart-town to Launceston, about 5 miles from this place, some blacks that were stationed on a little hill by the road side, threw a few spears at him. Four of them entered his body in different places, & wounded him severely but not dangerously. A party was immediately dispatched in pursuit of the blacks, but they dis-appeared so quick that the could not any where be seen. They have some extraordinary method of concealing themselves, for nothing is so difficult as to overtake them. The ran over the wildest passes on all fours, almost as fleet as dogs, and conceal themselves in holes, and trunks of trees, or behind stones, and though you may see them at a distance and run up to the place where they are, not a vestige of them will be found. lt is much to be wished that the experiment of ...

Since the day that Mr. Malthus, with his mistaken theory, blinded John "Bull, relief has chiefly .been (poked for to those coun- tries in emigration. It has, therefore, been carried on for the last. twelve years, and thc result is, that the labouring classes are moro numerous |and more wretched than eyer, .We know it is a very general wish here that Parliament should afford, some; assistance to labourers lo emigrate to Van Dibm'en's land, and we should re* juice .to see it carried into effect.

THE HOBART-TOWN COURIER, SATURDAY DECEMBER 22,1827. -------- We do not by any means hold with those alarmists who constantly anticipate evil. During the last month nothing has been more com- mon than melancholy, accounts of the approaching harvest, of the scantness of grass and pasturage, and depressing forebodings of the consequent scarcity of bread and the absence of beef and mut- ton. We know that the season has been unusually dry, that the   harvest will be below an average crop, and that many of the flocks of sheep and herds of cattle have eaten their pastures bare, but we believe notwithstanding that there is and will be sufficient corn in the island for our own consumption, and something to spare. The effect of all this however will, we trust, be to render as frugal and economical—to reduce our flocks and herds to a regular and ma-   nageable number, and to induce among many a better system of husbandry. We shall learn that it is better to do a littl...
