ST. ANDREW's CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 6 December 1828

ST. ANDREW'S CLUB. The philosophy of clubs has of late become ¿ fa- vourite theme in fashionable life, and we should he' "uilty of a dereliction of the duty which wc owe to Jar readers, if we did not inform them of the trans- actions of the Van Diemen'» land St. Andrew's club; the first and we believe the only society of the kind 8s yet established amongst us. Though the mdnlbers may well be termed philosophers, they cannot be said to belong to the P) thagorean class. For some days' previous, al Homer describes the deadly elr'efcts of the wrath of Apollo among the Grecian army round the walls of Troy, so did the spirit of St. Andrew gliM'le out the fittest and plumpest of the geese, 'turkeys, capons, chickens, pigeons, guiuoa fowls and others in the neighbouring yards for slaughter. The three kingdoms of nature, animal, vegetable, and mineral, and the four <|tmrters of the globe contribu- ted indeed materials for the present entertainment in this most propitious^/i/i quar...

ENGLISH AT ROME. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 13 December 1828

ENGLISH AT ROME. There are at present seven thousand travelling English at Rome,—men, women, children and ser- vants; and this great body of people is of course   very miscellaneous in regard to fortune and fashion.   They have strong notions of justice, and zealously contend that every man should enjoy his rights unmo- lested. The Pope, they wisely say, has been made what he is, by the exertions, blood and treasure of the British nation; and finding that he annually   treats his friends with this here show of the washing of feet, and waiting at table on poor men, and with blessing the public from the top of St. Peter's; with   fire-works and illuminations, and with daily warbling of his songsteis for a whole week;—they think they   have a fair right to see all this, and do not under- stand the arbitrary proceedings of fellows in armour with steel points meddling, and daring to restrain ihe loco-motive faculties of fre...

THE COUNTRY POST. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 13 December 1828

THE COUNTRY POST. Launceston. Dec. 8 -Soon after I sent off my last letter, I found that a false report had been given me of the loss of the Leopold. The vessel was not at all in the situation represented. She had touched the ground and injured her rudder, which was the whole extent of the damage she sustained. She sailed again on Friday. I am always very cautious about reports, but in this instance Mr. Davidson having just left the vessel, I could see no reason to disbelieve the statement. The schooner Waterloo arrived yesterday from Sydney with a general cargo for Mr. Tho. Williams, There are two more cargoes waiting for the same vessel at Sydney, for this market, belonging to the same concern, besides large quantities of goods ship- ped for other houses in Port Dalrymple. Such is the   glut of merchandize at Sydney, and these extensive shipments will be the means of occasioning a similar glut in this place.
