TREATISE ON SHEEP &c. CHAP II.—SHEEP AND THEIR UTILITY. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 25 December 1840

TREATISE ON SHEEP &c. CHAP IL-SHEEP AND THEIR UTILITY. Amongst the numerous animals formed by the Cre- ator of the universe for the use and benefit of the human race, sheep appear to be justly placed in the first rank in regard to general utility. We indeed find that they were the first quadrupeds taken under the protection of man, as may be seen in the fourth chapter of Genesis ; " And Abel was a keeper of sheep." And again, in the days of Abraham, until the time of Mesha, King of Moab, Holy Writ informs us that Patriarchs, Princes and Kings, were shepherds and sheep-masters. Ancient History also adds " The riches of kings, as well as of private men, in the early ages of the world, consisted chiefly in sheep and cattle, to which goats may be added." That sheep were extremely numerous in the land of Moab, may be inferred from their being substituted as tribute-money, during the subjection of that coun- try under the kings of Israel. Vide the 4th verse of the 2nd Kings ; " An...

CHINA NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 25 December 1840

CHINA NEWS. By the Louisa Campbell, China news to the end of J August has been received. The British had taken possession of the Island of Chusan. The Mandarins of Anioy and Hingpo having refused to forward Lord Palmerston's despatches to the Emperor, the Com- missioners, Admiral and Captain Elliot, had started for Pekin with part of the expedition to deliver them themselves. This was the latest intelligence from the northward, but there was a report among the Chinese at Canton that Chusan had been retaken and many English killed, but it was not credited. A collision took place between the English and Chinese at Macao about the 20th August. A Mr. Stanton was seized by the Chinese and carried to Canton. A formal demand was made for his release through the Portuguese, but instead of producing the desired effect, the Viceroy ordered two thousand troops to the barrier with the avowed intention of I endeavouring to seize the rest of the English at J Macao. Captain Smith, who had succeede...

The Presse says that Louis Bonaparte, ex-King of Hol- land, had purchased £120,000 worth of diamonds out of his royal savings, which diamonds fell into the hands of the present King of Holland. He had just given young Louis £40,000 indemnity for these jewels. And this sum served for the Boulogne expedition.

THE COURIER. ätrmue et prospere. HOBART TOWN, FRIDAY, DECEMBER 25. " THIS is tlio month, and this the happy morn," which brings with it so many hallowed recollections. Apart from the sacred and solemn reflections which it awakens, Christmas recalls to our memory the joyous associations with which it is accompanied in our native land. It brings before us the snow-clad fields and the holiday season of youthful sport-every window is decorated with the ever blooming holly-the church is tastefully adorned with holly branches-its deep toned bell sounds far over the silent fields, and the ruddy parson as he walks to church, welcomes his young friends who have returned home from school, or those whose more matured pursuits have scattered them abroad, and who gather together at this period of the year. As soon as the wintry day closes, its darkness is relieved by the bright blaze of the Christ- mas log and the cheerfulness of the family circle, and the evening is prolonged with " itorie9 of ...

SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 29 December 1840

SYDNEY. By the arrival of the Adventure, which performed the passage in the extraordinary brief space of three days and a-half, we have Sydney papers to the 23rd of December. They contain matter of little interest. The meditated division of the territory of New South Wales appears to have excited some discussion. The New South Wales' Act, as at present passed, would serve only to point out the separation of New Zealand, and not Port Phillip, as at first determined, "which will continue to be a dependence. The boundaries, how- ever, will be fixed. The quotations of wheat vary in the newspapers. It is said the millers have combined to raise the price. The highest quotation which we find, is eight shillings.
