JURY LISTS—SESSION OF OYER AND TERMINER. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 13 February 1839

JURY LISTS-SESSION OF OYER AND TERMINER. To follow out and expose the practical errors by which we are surrounded, seems like the task of Sysiphus, endless and hopeless. It is well for us that there is an innate elas- ticity of mind which, when we begin to de- spair, again , lifts us from the earth, and raises us into the better region of hope. These thoughts have been suggested by the subjects which give a title to our present lucubration. If there is any thing in which a Briton should take a proud plea- sure -- any thing which he should glory to transplant from its native soil to the home of its adoption, it is the right of trial by jury ; (the shield of the powerless, and his bulwark against oppression;) and yet,     strange to say, the gross and careless way in which the jury list has been made out, has passed almost without a murmur.

VARIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 13 February 1839

VARIETIES. EARLY RISING. — The difference between rising every morning at six and at eight; in the course of forty years, amounts to 29,200 hours, or three years one hundred and twenty one days and sixteen hours, which are equal to eight hours a day for exactly ten years. So that rising at six will be the same as if ten years     of life (a weighty consideration) were added, wherein       we may command eight hours every day for the cultivation of business. This calculation is made without any regard to [bUseslílc].     EDUCATION. — The grand problem of education, at least of liberal education, is to teach enough and not too much ; not to cultivate the memory alone, which, in the dullest may perhaps, by assiduous and inces- sant diligence, be constrained to lay up stores of re- miniscences, which may never ripen into useful and productive knowledge, while the other powers 0f the  ...

WE have now before us a letter from a respect* able resident at Tahiti, containing a detail ol some most extraordinary proceedings on tht part of die French nation, which we think can scarcely be allowed to pass unnoticed by tht British Government. m The circumstances out of which these pro ceedings arose are simply as follow. It may bf remembered that some two years ago Pomare, the young Queen of Tahiti, refused permission to two French priests from the Roman Cai hoik Missionary establishment on Gu'nbieVs Isian I, to sen ie in her dominions, being very judicious!} averse to countenance anything likely to stir up the dames of religions discord arnon' Ker still semi-bárbarous subjects.
