From the Hobart Town Courier. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Advertiser — 19 April 1830

From the Hobart Town Courier.     A melancholy but interesting scene took     place in Hobart town on Tuesday. It was   the funeral procession of Miss Bush, a young lady, born in the island, daughter of Mr.     Bush, Argyle street. The pall was born by six young ladies dressed in white, and the     corps was followed to the grave by 24 others       in the same attire. As a specimen of the     beautiful of our native fair sex, they where   most flattering to the lovers of the colony, not one uninteresting face, not one that was not deserving of the name of beautiful ap- peared amongst them. The blacks we regret to state have added     another victim to their murders. A poor man named John Rayner, at Spring bay, was so cruelly beaten by them that he died in the hospit...

LAUNCESTON ADVERTISER. MONDAY, APRIL 26, 1830. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Advertiser — 26 April 1830

LAUNCESTON ADVERTISER. MONDAY, APRIL 26, .1830. It is the public duty of a Journalist to dispel delusion; but in the discharge of this duty he must.jiot expect to find his road perfectly free from the arrows of those who are interested in preventing the jEgis of truth from confronting and dissipating their power. A great deal' has' been written at sun dry limes, and apparently with great consistency, deprecating the ' Inde dependence' of this Colony with refer ence to Sydney. An! although we cer tainly are burlhened with gome Custom house « taxes,' which have not as jet dbtained at N. S. W., although we are without (at present) that useful court, the ' Little-Go,' yet are we, and the bulk of this County, proud of our In dependence, for various weighty reas ons, of which the Botany Bay Trans portation Act, for Printers, Publishers and Editors, is one with us of great weight, for we have adopted this land ai our ' Home,' and should not feel any ways gratified at being, transported to ...

SYDNEY EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Advertiser — 26 April 1830

SYDNEY EXTRACTS. The following; extracts from letter* of London Mercantile Houses, on the wool and the fisheriss, will be read with interest:— Wooi,. — The wools of ^our colouy are eagerly bought, and in spite of the many large failures in Basinghall-street aud in the country, the price for elemtit well atiorted, and good fleeces from the colonies, is at least equal to that of last year, in some instances superior. ''Donaldson, Wilkinson, & Co.' There are some gentlemen in the Colitny by (lie very last arrival from England, 'who ac tually were present at the sales, and who say that only 1 or 3 of the Yorkshire men were present, who had it of course all their own way. Settlers must not expect remu nerating prices for wool, unless they im prove the quality, and send it clean aud neat to market. Oil. — We are glad to find the colonies are sufficiently alive to (heir own interests, to embark with spirit in the sperm fishery, as we are convinced it will most importantly constitut...

NEWS FROM SWAN RIVER; OR THE LAWYER'S LAMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Advertiser — 26 April 1830

NEWS FROM SWAN RIVER ; OB THE LAWYER'S LAMENT. You wish to learn bow we cot on, So a letter I'll try to produce, To tell at the River of Swan, What I find for amusement or use. Of all common comforts, alas! We're here so deficient and bare, «, That Nebuchadnezar at grass, Could hardly have lived on such fare. Mrs. Wiggins you know has a taste For meads and meandering brooks, And onl; could think, in her haste, Of garlands and sheep-tending crooks; I wish she had brought out instead, But my wife says,- ' the thought is quite shucking,' A needle or two, and some thread, To sew up a hole in my storking. Mr. Gusset, from Tottenham-court-road, Who'd fain be our fashions refining, Imported of patterns a load; With samples for facings and lining ; But shrewdly I guess a sheep's hide, Though b garb thnn which few could look rummer, Will be woru all the year ; wool inside, Through winter ;— turned outside in sum mer. Mr. Bunnion, of corn-cutting fame. Our toes would in order be putting, Bat ...

FAMILIAR PHILOSOPHY. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Advertiser — 26 April 1830

FAMILIAR PHILOSOPHY. For many centuries the wonders and the advantages of science were known only to tlic few whose lives were devoted to its pursuit. Philosophy, in all its forms, was 'as a fortune shut up and a book sealed' to mankind in general ; and even the philoso phy of'Nature, which coneerns them most intimately, which regulates their every-day actions, and is thefinurrenf nil their nleasnr. able sensations, was known to them only by m^n8 °' ^e?r grosser perceptions.

EASY DYING. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Advertiser — 26 April 1830

EASY DYING. Brantome. in one pftiis discourses ' on the love of ladies for valiant' man,' introduces a subject which certainly has very little to do with the title. It is on the manner in which some people have died ; and he gives, two' instances of persons meeting death with per* feet carelessness, aud yet in a way. totally different. uvi luiiiij, iic paje, iiic id ngwu uiiug; enough in its way, but a generous and bold manner of dying is also very praiseworthy. 1 will give, as an instance, an .account of the death of Mademoiselle de Limeuil the elder, who was one of tlie queen's maids of honour, and who died at court.' During the whole of her illness she never ceased' talk ing ;— she was naturally witty and extremely well informed, and, when she -was well, rather fond of conversation. 'When she knew, that tier end was drawiifg nigh, she ordered her yalet (for all the maids of Honour had a valet assigned to attend on them), whose, name was Julian, and who played very well on the Vio...

We beg leave to correct an error whiohhas crept into the Almanacks for this year, viz., ' that the Post arrives in Launceston on the Sunday evening-, generally about 8 o'clock.' Such is not the real state of our Post, for al though it is usual in Hobartoo for the Postman to arrive at 8 o'clock on Wed nesday, the Launces-ton Post seldom arrives before day-light on Monday tnoruin^. Reasoning upon this, say we to ourselves, it must ue a louger or more difficult journey to return from Hobart Town than to go it, but are given to understand, by various travel ler.', that it is full as easy to return | from Iiobart Town to Launceston, as it is to go Ihereto, wh.ch being the ca.-e, and only one day allowed to write our letters and an-auge for the Post, whereas, the good folks of H-j- bart Town have from Wednesday night lo Friday night. We would beg leave to call the attention of the Post-masters to this particular, a^uring them at the same time, that the delivery of the letters on the Sunda...
