SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 15 December 1840
SYDNEY. Swan River.-By our advertising columns we perceive that several vessels have lately been laid on for Swan &nbsp; River, which confirms us in our opinion that the trade | and prospects of that much neglected colony are begin- ning to improve, and the opening of the new settle- ment of Australind will have the effect of giving an impetus to trade which we have no doubt will enable the settlers to overcome all their difficulties. As there will in all probability be a considerable demand for stock at Swan River, not only on account of the increasing pros- perity of the colony, but also in consequence of the numbers who it is to be expected will flock to the new settlement of Australind, a few small shipments we have no doubt would pay well, more especially during that season of the year in which vessels bound to India proceed through Bass's Straits, as a call at Swan River would cause bul s »cry short delay- Sydney Herald, Nov. 17. Brevet Major Irwin.-Wv have this week t...

THE COURIER. Strcnuc ft Vrosptrr, HOBART TOWN, TUESDAY, DECEMBER li THE Supreme Court .was yesterday occupied from ten o'clock in the morning" until nine at night, with the trial of Gilbert Robertson v. T. Macdowell, for an alleged libel published in the Courier newspaper, of the 29th May last. Against the defendant were arranged the firm of Messrs. Jones, Anstey, and though last not least, Mr. Thomas Young. For the defendant a-.peared the Attorney-General and Mr. Sydney Stephen. The idea of Mr. Gilbert Robertson complaining of being libelled, and of having thereby suffered in his good fame, credit, and renown, was in itself so enter- taining a novelty, that the court was crowded to excess. We cannot in this number afford space to give a report of the trial. Mr. Jones buckled on all his armour for the con- test, and sorry buckram it was. He depicted his client as a perfect paragon of perfection, who came to this colony in 182*2 with letters dimissory from the Kirk of Session, wherea...

THE CABINET. THE DROP OF WATER. AN EASTERN APOLOGUE. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 15 December 1840
THE CABINET. THE DROP OF WATER. AN EASTERN APOLOGUE. " How mean mid all this glorious space, how valueless am 11" A little drop of water said, as, trembling in the sky, It downward fell, in haste to meet the interminable sea, As if the watery mass its gaol and sepulchre should be. But ere of no account within the watery mass it fell, It found a shelter and a home, the oyster's concave shell ; And there that little drop became a hard and precious gem, Meet ornament for royal wreath, for Persia's diadem. Cheer up faint heart, that hcar'st the tale, and though thy lot in ay seem Contemptible, yet not of it as nothing-worth esteem ; Nor fear that thou exempt from care of Providence shalt be, An undistinguishable drop in nature's boundless sea : The Power that called thee into life has skill to make thee live, A place of refuge can provide, another being give ; Can clothe thy perishable form with beauty rich and rare, And " when he makes his jewels up," grant thee a station there. R. D. ...

COLONIAL PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 15 December 1840
COLONIAL PRESS. THK CROPS.-We are truly sorry to state that the report of the state of the crops in the Richmond district is very bad. Hay will be an enormous pricp this season. But the prospect of the crops in the Hamilton and Bothwell and some parts of the Brighton districts, is excellent, and there is at present no cause to apprehend anything like a scarcity, inde- pendent of the large quantities of grain and flour on hand. True Colonist, December 11. PITTWATER, DEC. 6.-I beg to inform you, that the crops through this district are nearly all destroyed, through the pre- vailing hot weather. I speak fearlessly when I state, that there will not be generally more than one-third of grain com- pared with last year. Mr. Laing, in this district, has turned his cattle into one field containing twenty-five acres of wheat. At the Carlton, several persons arc mowing their crops for hay ; and the crops generally which were looking so well and full of verdure some time back at Sorell, are atte...

SYDNEY. THE PRESENT STATE OF AFFAIRS. To the Editor of the Sydney Herald. SIR,-Allow me, through the medium of your paper, to make a few obseivutions on the present distressing state of monetary and commercial affairs. The knowledge of the muse of an evil is something to winds its cuic, the present distress seems to ante from a combination of un. forton ile circumstances, some of these being merely con- sequences of other circumstances, while others are ru- in ely primary, and which iinfortun Hely happen to occui at the same period. Lind, villi and towu allotments, li ive, during the last six or eight months,been continually using in price and ficquenlly changing hands, at every chdige a new sit of bills has been given, so that, in many cast s, a piece of I uid north, say -£100, is repiesented by bills now cuiient to the extent, sny £i00 ur £400 The banks c innot be expected to discount all these, and of course -nell bills must rein tin in the holder's hands, this lb clearly one cau...

THE COURIER. gtrrnuc et ÎJrotsprrc. HOBART TOWN, FRIDAY, DECEMBER l8. LORD DENMAN'S Act " For the Prevention of frivo- lous Suits" is, we perceive from the Gazette of this day, about to be submitted to the Legislative Council This Bill readied the colony by the Egyptian, and under its provisions the certificate of a judge is not required to deprive a successful litigant of costs where he recovers less than forly shillings damages, except in cases where some claim to land is involved in the issue to be tried between the parties. We now know-for all information from Mr. Jones must henceforth be regarded as given by one well qualified to furnish a supplement to Lord Bacon's advancement of learning--that to borrow and appro- priately apply a single sentence of Lord Denman's, is " ill-timed plagiarism." What wholesale robbery then in our Legislative Council thus to take posses- sion of his Lordship's Act ! The rejection of the Statute of James was bail enough, but why adopt the Statute o...

COLONIAL PRESS. THE PROGRESS OP AGRICULTURE.-In order to form some idea of the udvancc of agriculture iii this colony, we will just state that Captain Freeman, who located himself upon an estate in Evandale about eighteen months ago, luis this year three hundred acres of new land under wheat crop of excellent appearance. Although none have made BO rapid an advance as Captain Freeman, lhere nie many who have followed close at his heels, and few, if any, that have not greatly extended the length and breadth of their corn Gelds-Colonial Times, December 15. The CLONMEL.-This beautiful steam-ship arrived here on Wednesday from Port Phillip, and sailed again on Saturday morning. The fittings-up are most elegant, and the accommodations equal to any vessel of the same tonnage that ever sailed from London. She has two engines of 120 horse-power each ; they are the most beautiful specimens of mechanism we ever saw, and it is quite a treat to examine them. We hear that they cost in London upwa...

THE CABINET. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 18 December 1840
THE CABINET. Like some vast flood, unbounded, fierce, and strong, His nature leads ungoverned man along; Like mighty bulwarks made to stem that tide, The laws are formed and placed on every side : Whene'er it breaks the bounds by these decreed. New statutes rise, and stronger laws succeed ; More and more gentle grows the dying stream, More and more strong the rising bulwarks seem ; Till, like a miner working sure and slow, Luxury creeps on, and ruins all below ; The basis sinks, the ample piles decay, The stately fabric shakes and falls away ; ? Primeval want and ignorance come on, But freedom, that exalts the savage state, is gone. CBABBI. The moral ofthat poetical fiction, that the uppermost link of all the series of subordinate causes is fastened to Jupiter's chair, signifies that Almighty God governs and directs subor- dinate causes and effects.-Hale.
