Foreign Mails. — The length of time which fre quently elapses between the arrival of a vessel and the delivery of its mail has 'been For years a standing sub ject of complaint. In most cases, however, it does not arise from the negligence or delay of the Post Office authorities, since they have nothing to do with the mails until they are delivered at their office One cause is (he want of any regular system, sometimes the vessel brings up its own mail, and sometimes a boat is dispatched, but it appears to depend greatly as to whe ther or not there is a boat that can be conveniently spared for the purpose. In tbe case of the Festal, the mail was detained on board, whilst the vessel laid yiind bound at George Town, and serious loss was sustained by parlies in town in consequence of this delay. Oc currences like this frequently take place, but no remedy has yet been attempted. It has been sugcested to us that it would be a very excellent plan for the Govern ment to invite tenders for tb...

POETRY. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 16 August 1841

POETX&7. A beam of tranquillity smll'd in the west. The storms of the morning pursued us no more ; And the wave, while it welcom'd the moment of rest, Still bear'd, as remembering Ills that were o'er. Serenely my heart took the hue of the hour. Its passions were sleeping, were mute as the dead ; And the spirits becalm'd but remember'd their power, As the billow the force of the gale that was fled. I thought of those days, when to pleasure alone My heart ever granted a wish or a sigh. When the saddest emotion my bosom had kDown, Was pity for those who were wiser than I. I reflected, how soon in the cup of Desire The pearl of the soul may be melted away.; How quickly, alas, the pure sparkle of fire We inherit from heav'n may be quenched in the clay ; And I pray'd of that Spirit who lighted the flame, That pleasure no more might it's purity dim ; So that, sullied but little, or brightly the same, 1 might give back the boon I bad borrow'd from him. How blest was the thought I it...

POETRY. THE MOTHER'S PRATER. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 23 August 1841

POBTIfSr, THE MOTHER'S PRAYER. The mother's face It is pale with care, Though lighted with the smiles such he mothers wear ; Though elckly the hue which is on thy brow. The eye beams with love and with joys below ; There's home and a trust in that mother's heart She does not dream of the hour to part. And now she has bended her knee to pray, While BickncEs is wasting her life away j Her hands arc folded in fervent love, Her spirit's desire is borne above ; Oh 1 not for herself those pleadings deep— For the health of her child in his rosy sleep. ? For him with the bright and sunny faoe, -Which dally ripens in bloom and grace ; Oh ! her dreams are all of his future years : She fancies his grief with a mother's tears. And yet at bis smile sweet visions play, To chase all those sadder thoughts away. She {trays that a father's love may shrine His opening youth with a trust divine ; That the world in its varied forms of ill May never his guileless bosom fill, But all unsullied, the heaven...

THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. MONDAY, AUGUST 23. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 23 August 1841

THE UUHeiSTON 6OUR1E6I. MONDAY, AUGUST, 23. The last number of ibe Morning Advertiser, contains some suitable and just observations upon tbe subject of immigration. The same remarks made by our contemporary with refer ence to Hobart Town, are equally applicable here, since a health officer and agent would not surelv have been annotated without tbe govern ment bad positive knowledge that emigrants would shortly arrive at this port. In tbe event of this, we would ask, where is tbe necessary accommodation provided for them ? Upon this subject our contemporary says — It is, however, said, by some of those who occasionally listen. to Court secrets, that a few of tbe bounty immi grants (those sent for by masters in this Colony) may be hourly -expected, but that the £10,000 written about by His Excellency not having been remitted, the Home Government do not feel authorised in shipping .human flesh and blood merely on the venture of His Excellen cy's recommendation.

SUPREME COURT, HOBART TOWN. Dr. Seccombe v. Shaw. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 23 August 1841

SUPREME COURT, HOBART TOWN.   Dr. Seccombe v. Shaw. Mr. Stephen moved for a rule to show cause why   the sum of £51 8s. 6d. costs paid to the Sheriff in   this action should not be repaid to the defendant; and why the plaintiff, should not pay the defendant's costs; or why the plaintiff's costs should not be re duced to the same amount to which he would have been entitled if this action had been brought in the Court of Requests, and why the plaintiff should not   pay the costs of this application. His Honor refused   the application on two grounds, first, because there was   nothing in the affidavit to show, where the plaintiff and defendant resided; and, secondly, because it was made too late. The Chief Justice coincided in the first of his Honor's objections, and the rule was discharged.   The following is taken from a story of Te»M Thousand a-year, in Blackwood's Magazine— ?
