THE CABINET. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 11 December 1840

THE CABINET. Ah 1 when did wisdom covet length of days? Or seek its bliss in pleasure, wealth, or praise? No, wisdom views, with an inditl'erent eye, All finite joys, all blessings bom to die. The soul on earth is an immortal guest, Compelled to starve at an unreal feast : A spark that upward tends by nature's force, A stream diverted from its parent source ; ' A drop dissevered from the boundless sea, A moment parted from eternity : \ A pilgrim panting for a rest to come, ~> An exile anxious for his native home. Moafci '\ S. Whatever passes as a cloud between The mental eye of faith, and things unseen, Causing that brighter world to disappear, Or seem less lovely, and its hopes less dear; This is our world, our idol, though it bear t Affection's impress, or devotion's air. . Beware you never taint the car of youth, Nor hear them break the sacred bond of truth, If with foul-licensed speech your offspring play, No after polish wears its use away. The first impressions strongest st...

SWAN RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 11 December 1840

SWAN RIVER. We have received a file of the Perth Gazette to the 20th of October. H.M.S. Beagle had surveyed the coast off Rottnest Island, and made a useful report thereupon, containing sailing directions, which we shall publish next week. A ball had been given to the officers, the account of which gives us a favour- able impression of the state of society, in what some , time since was looked upon as little less than a de peopled country, which, according toa sailor's saying, might-all . l»a_ium through- cm-lion«-gins»,-eo fertile was it in sand. An attempt had been made to procure labourers from India, which proved unsuccessful, owing to the orders lately in force respecting the exportation of Hill Coolies ; but these have now been removed, and we hope to sec the resources of this long struggling colony promoted and assisted by such means. Swan River has seen the worst, and must henceforth con- tinue to advance. Several Acts had passed the Legislative Council ; amongst others, one...

THE MORAL OF A PICTURE—THE USURER. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 11 December 1840

THE MORAL OF A PICTURE-THE USURER. DY MRS. A. M. HALL. "It made me think, as it has done many others, and I bless God for the means and the end," said an old Chelsea pensioner, pointing to the great picture in the college chapel. I had wandered into the " holy place" in the twilight of a summer evening, attracted more by its picturesque appearance, as I looked down the aisle through the open doors, than from any desire to see the few paintings therein con- tained-but the observation made me regard the picture attentively. Still I could not make out the subject-the altar was in shadow. I only saw the figure of our Saviour looking down, as it "were.in mercy on the world. " And what is the subject ?" I inquired of the old man. " Some call it a Resurrec- tion, and others an Ascension," be replied ; " but when I look at it-I only think of the greatness and goodness of Him who fought the good fight for us there is something so noble in the Saviour's face-I always sit opposite to it-and lo...

IMPORTANT NEWS FROM CHINA. ARRIVAL OF THE CHINESE EXPEDITION AT CANTON-DOWNFAll. Ol' CIIUSAM. By the Hero, just arrived from Singapore, we learn that Her Majesty's ships and transports have arrived in the Chinese waters, and that the first blow has been struck upon the hitherto inviolable integrity of the Celestial Empire. Sir J. J. Gordon Bremer at once gave notice of his in- tention to blockade the river and port of Canton, after the 2Sth of June ; a step which was accordingly curried into effect, but which does not seem to have been very rigidly enforced. No event of any public importunée transpired up to the 5th July, at which time all chance of success- ful negotiation with the authorities at Chiisam liming been brought lo a close, the Wellesley, which was an- chored near the shore, fired a shot, which was almost directly answered by several from the shore, where it was discovered that the enemy had erected some temporary batteries, from behind which they were attempting to act...

THE COURIER. atténue et prospere. HOBART TOWN, FRIDAY, DECEMBER li. We have received several communications on the subject of our late notice relative to emigration amongst others) a letter from Mr. Gilles, of Launces- ton, which proves to us that upon all subjects relat- ing to the welfare of the Colony, there exists far more public spirit and unanimity of sentiment upon the northern than upon this side of the Island, where opinion may be said to be frittered away by itinerant groups of small and speculative politicians. We aro informed that eighty emigrants have arrived at Laun- ceston, who were forwarded from Adelaide by Mr. Pitcher. By the bye the Adelaide papers would have us believe that this gentleman was singularly unsuc- cessful in his mission, but by way of a saving clause they add, that those who have gone arc the worst the very worst of characters, and that it is a blessing to be freed from them I Our South Australian puf- fers are fairly at their wits' ends.

COLONIAL PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 11 December 1840

COLONIAL PRESS. The Essington arrived from Port Nicholson, on Monday last. This vessel brings us about fourteen emigrants, and amongst them several mechanics, who, after meeting with variety of disappointments at New Zealand, abandoned   the place in despair and disgust. The settlement is repre- sented to us as being in a most lamentable slate, and the greatest dissatisfaction is said to prevail amongst the un- fortunate kidnapped emigrants. Induced by false and flattering exaggerations to abandon their homes and their native country, they discover immediately upon their arri- val, the treachery and inhumanity of their selfish deceiv- ers. They find starvation where they had been led to ex- pect abundance ; and discontent and distress, where they were told prosperity and comfort alone reigned ; they find it almost impossible to obtain a livelihood, where they were assured that wealth and independence would be their certain reward. There is nothing more base and cruel th...

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. Encounter Bay.-Murder of a Native Woman -Last Tuesday evening a young female of the Encounter Bay tribe of natives was murdered by a black named Tom, who belongs to the Milmeurura, or Big Murray tribe. It was this person who brought in the news of the murder of the people of the Maria, and since then he has not ventured lo return to his tribe, but has lived with the Encounter Bay natives. The cause of his committing the murder is not known. The act was committed with a piece of the hone of a whale, with which he struck her on the head, iuflict . ing five wounds, three of which were two and a half ; inches long each, and laid the skull, which was dreadfully fractured, completely bare. The other two wounds were of I less extent. Information of the murder was conveyed on board the Lalla Rookh, and Dr. Moore, accompanied by C.ipt.

FASHIONS FOR AUGUST. (From the World of Fashion Monthly Magazine.) [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 15 December 1840

FASHIONS FOR AUGUST. (From the World of Fashion Monthly Magazine ) Bonnets_Several fancy straw ones have recently ap- peared, and will be very fashionable for the sea side. Those of Italian straw are still in favour. The most fashionable style of trimming consists of white riband, disposed in a novel kind of twist round the bottom of the crown, and a knot of peculiarly pretty form, falling on one side of the brim near the back; a single, long, white, curled ostrich feather issuing from the knot, lies flat upon the brim, and droops over it towards the shoulder on the opposite side. New Materials_The most remarkable for both the beauty and the delicacy of their patterns are the bareges of all kinds, and particularly the batiste-barege, pail de chèvre, Musagron, and moiré d'été, the foulards and gros de Naples chinés, and a variety of silks perlées, sablées, and quadrillées. Spencers,-Those of pou de soi and other silks have now entirely superseded those of velvet ; they are made for t...

FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. RUSSIA, PRUSSIA, AND AUSTRIA. It is boldly stated, (hat two-thirds of the entire military force of Russia is concentrated on the shores of (he Black Sea, or in full march thither. The »Hairs of Georgia are considered unimportant when compared with the new cir- cumstances of Turkey. Oflicial intelligence lind been received at the Russian embassy at Constantinople, that the expeditions to Khiva and Bokhara are totally abandoned for this year, and that the whole attention of the Imperial Government is now directed to the Circassian provinces. Determined at lust on a crowning effort, to end at once this protracted struggle, a force amounting to 200,000 men is ordered to be collected for this purpose. A letter from Magdeburg of the 11th instant, in the Leipsic Gazette, says :-." lu a few days all political pri- soners will be set at liberty. M. de Humboldt bus had a great share in this merciful measure. Not only all the political prisoners without exception, amounti...
