THE CABINET. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 8 December 1840
THE CABINET. O sacred sorrow f by whom souls are tried, Sent not to punish mortals, but to guide ; If thou art mine, (and who shall proudly dare To tell his Maker, he has had his share?) Still let me feel for what thy pangs are sent, And be my guide and not my punishment 1 CRABBE. There is a calm the poor in spirit know, That softens sorrow, and that sweetens woe ; 'There is a peace that dwells within the breast When all without is stormy and distrest ; There is a light that gilds the darkest hour. When dangers thicken and when tempests lour ; That calm to faith, and hope, and love is given, That peace remains when all beside is riven, That light shines down to man direct from heaven 1 EDMXSTOK. The highest learning is to be wise, and the greatest wisdom is to be good.-Marcus Antoninus.

NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 8 December 1840
NEW ZEALAND. I'lie state of the survey, and the prospect of a much larger quantity of land being open to selection Kian shall at any period be found to have been sold by the company, arc subjects likely before long lo become of the most vital importance to this settlement. ' The town covers eleven hundred acres, and is in pos- session of its proprietors; about three thousand acres of country land baie also been appropriated, and in the course of a month, in all probability, from four to five thousand arres more will be open to selection. This ¡s a «mall portion of the land already sold ; but we confehs we consider that had we been enabled to obtain on arrival all or the greater part of the lands to which we are entitled, it would have been to our injury rather than advantage. To this hour the supply of labour has bee» very small, and the fruitless efforts to obtain workmen which would have been made, must have been solely productive of evil ; and it is for this reason we think that ...

PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 8 December 1840
PORT PHILLIP. Public Institutions.-It appears that the Secretary of State and His Excellency entertain different views of the powers vested iu the Local Government as to the alienation of lund for the use of the Mechanics or other public Institutions. But in order to set this difference at rest, Lord John Russell has introduced a clause into the new Act of Parliament, authorising grants of land lo be made, not only for purposes essentially necessary for public use, such as roads, wharfs, chapels, hospitals, &c, but also for siles of public buildings, or for objects of " recreation, public health, general utility, or convenience of society at ¡urge within the colony."

Mr. Nairne, Secretary to the Board of Education, is appointed in his stead. Mr. Gunn has other engagements of a private nature which require his undivided attention. He came into office at the commencement of the present Session of the Legislative Council, and has had onerous duties to discharge, which he has filled however, no less to the satisfaction of the public than of His Excellency the Lieutenant-Governor-his greatest fault in the Both- well Church case, where he had to take down the whole of the evidence, heing, that he did it " not wisely" for one party, " but too well," and there it stands a monument of the cool intrepidity with which some of our fellow-colonists professing to have a religion-and that they have one, and a remarkable one, none can deny-pursue their occupation.

MISCELLANEOUS. On cutting Wheat before it is Ripe -An old and prac- tical farmer gives the following opinion on cutting wheat -"The assertions vi Inch I have fouud most prewtlent are, that wheat may be cut some time before it is ripe , that it ripens at least ten days afterwards in the field. It Ire. quently lmppena with those fanners who grow a great breadth of corn, that they find it convenient to begin a certain portion of it, in older to employ the labourers they have eugaged, and whom they wish to keep in constant work until the harvest be blushed ; under such circum- stances it is a happy belief that you ure «loins' no hurm m pirseveiing. The miller also tills \ou that tlio sample is brighter, and he likes it. But does the farmer find that he can sell a shmelled and almost green sample for the same as one more bold ? I never found it so-on the con. trary-jet the corn cut before it is quite ripe is thinner skinned, and contains no doubt a smaller poition of bran. But depend upo...
