THE CABINET. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 22 December 1840

THE CABINET. When constant Faith and only Hope shall die. One lost in certainty, and one in joy. Then, thou more happy power, fair Charity ! Triumphant sister, greatest of the three, Thy office and thy nature still the same, Lasting thy lamp, and unconsumed thy flame, . Shalt stand betöre the Host of Heaven contest, For ever blessing, and for ever blest. Palo». What greater blessing than a heart at ease? What greater curse than an unsettled mind? The one of all things views the brighter side, And cheerfully the light bestowed enjoys : The other through1 the mist of discontent 4)ut partially obtains the view of good, And loses thus the way which leads to jtace. , ? Friendship and Patriotism.-A man who loves only himself, without regard to friendship and desert, merits the severest blame ; and a man who is only susceptible of friendship, with, out public spirit, or a regard to the community, is deficient in the most material part of virtue.-Hume's Essays.

NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 22 December 1840

NEW ZEALAND. We have received files of the Sydney papers to the 8th instant ; the most interesting portion of their contents relates to China, which our readers will find under that head in another column. The rumour that tho Melville, 74, bad been burnt by the Chinese, does not appear to be worthy of credit. At New Zealand, the result of the proclamation of Sir Georire Gipps with reference to land, seems likely tobe productive of serious consequences to the settlers and emigrants to that colony. The disturbances have already commenced. We regret to hear that W. E. Cormac, Esq., has been robbed by the natives of Matta Matta, while passing through their seulement, on his way to his estate at Weikatta. It appears that the robbpry was committed in consequence of Mr. C. having sometime before the Go- vernor's proclamation, purchased some lands from these people, for which he made part payment, but on finding the uncertainty of the tenure of lands in New Zealand, he did not conclude the ...

TREATISE ON SHEEP &c. CHAP. I.—PASTURAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 22 December 1840

TREATISE ON SHEEP &c. CHAP. I.-PASTURAGE. It is well known to English wool collectors and manufacturers of cloth, that pasturage has a powerful influence on tho nature and properlies of the fleece. This fact is indeed evinced in every process of con- sumption or manufacture, and under this head I. therefore deem it requisite to offer some general ob- servations, with a view to aid tho judgment of the inexperienced sheep owners on a subject in which their interest is materially concerned. In order to convey my meaning with greater ac- curacy and precision, I shall remind the reader of the experiments made on sheep pasturage in England, and in the way of illustration endeavour to show to the colonial sheep-masters the bad effects produced on wool when the sheep are fed in chalky districts, contrasted with a portion of the same flock pastured on land more congenial to the growth of salt wool. 'from this circumstance the advantages may easily be deduced which will result to thos...

THE COURIER. Strenue et Prospere. HOBART TOWN, TUESDAY, DECEMBER 22. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 22 December 1840

THE COURIER. Strenue et Prospere. HOBART TOWN, TUESDAY, DECEMBER 22. IN adverting to the style of the Press here. His Honor should have remembered that in its present state we found it―that for its tone we are in no wise responsible, and that the attempt to alter it, until we have driven the reptiles who have hitherto abused it from their unhallowed vocation, would be idle indeed. Of two of these worthies, we have disposed―the     Doctor "of small change memory," and the People's   Journal. As to the language we had for them, Mr. Burke, no bad model, had a particular style for the Duke of Bedford. He makes him "the leviathan among the creatures of the crown." "He tumbles   about his unwieldy bulk―he plays and frolics about in the ocean of royal bounty. Huge he is, and whilst he lies floating many a rood, he is still a creature. His ribs―his fins―his whalebone―his blubber, the very spiracles through which he spouts a torrent of brin...

COLONIAL PRESS. CORNWALL AUXILIARY BIBLE SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 22 December 1840

COLONIAL PRESS. CORNWALL AUXILIARY BIBLE SOCIETY. The Annual Meeting of the above Society took place on Tuesday evening, at the infant School-room-the Rev. Dr. Browne in the chair. The meeting was highly re- spectable, hut not so numerously attended as on former occasions ; bul we hope Ihe amount of collections will evince the liberal feeling of the public in support of so praiseworthy un institution. The Chairman in opening the proceedings, expressed himself strongly attached to the society, and fully con- vinced that it was the only possible means of spreadiug the word of God and ameliorating the human species-no other society could accomplish the great objects in view. Nevertheless, he could plainly see that there might be some who differed from him, and who, from conscientious motives, did not give their support to this society. He would allow to all the sume liberty of conscience which he claimed for himself, and would hesitate in condemning such, merely because they differed i...

LOCAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 22 December 1840

LOCAL. MECHANICS' INSTITUTE.-On Thursday week the Annual General Meeting1 of the friends of this Institution was held in the Court of Requests' Room. The President, the Rev. Mr. Lillie, took the chair. We were sorry to observe the smallness of. the meeting, although it is impossible to be surprised at it, knowing as we do from daily example, the rarity here of anything like lasting zeal in a public object, especially when attended with the least amount of personal trouble. The few, however, who were gathered together on this occasion, were those who have evinced something like a continuous interest in this most praiseworthy Institution, and deserve in our opinion the thanks gf the community for their ex« ertions in maintaining it. The report read by the Secretary did not present so satisfactory a statement of the affairs of the Society as one would fain have wished to have heard, but the committee appear to be perfectly satisfied, from communications they have had with the Governmen...
