TREATISE ON SHEEP &c. CHAP IV.—THE AGES OF SHEEP. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 1 January 1841
TREATISE ON SHEEP &c. CHAP IV.-THE AGES OF SHEEP. The proprietors of sheep and other domestic stock usually estimate their respective breeds according to their ages. It is therefore essentially requisite that the buyers of live stock should possess some general principle of knowledge on this subject, in order to protect themselves from the machinations of those who too frequently resort to frauds, in order toi deceive the credulous and unwary. I shall, however, in the present instance confine my remarks to the ages of sheep, and endeavour to trace some general outline, by the aid of which attentive settlers may be enabled to form a tolerably correct judgment of the ages of their stock and thus prevent any material de- ception from being practised upon them. I am the more anxious to press these remarks on the attention of my readers, as I lately accompanied a friend to inspect some Saxony rams, bought in that country at a high price for the purpose of being shipped to one of ...

GOVERNMENT NOTICE. No. 1. Colonial Secretary's Office, 29th December, 1840. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 1 January 1841
GOVERNMENT NOTICE. No. 1. Colonial Secretary's Office, 29th December, 1840. The Lieutenant-Governor has had under consideration in the Executive Council a communication from the Chief Police Magistrate, reporting the circumstances attending an attack made by four armed bushrangers, on the night of the 22nd instant, upon the house of Mr. Thomas Cole, on Snake Island, in D'Entrecasteaux's Channel. It appears that these bushrangers were absconded &nbsp; convicts, who had landed from a boat in search of clothing and provisions; and that a personal conflict took place &nbsp; between them and Mr. Cole, aided by certain members of his family, in which Mr. Cole greatly distinguished &nbsp; himself by his gallantry and determination. The result of such gallant conduct on the part of Mr. Cole, in the defence of his life and property, was, that &nbsp; &nbsp; three of the bushrangers were so severely wounded as to be immediately afterwards taken: the four...
SPIRIT OF THE PUBLIC PRESS. [?]UMMING UP FOR THE SESSION. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 1 January 1841
SPIRIT OF THE 'PUBLIC PRESS. HUMMING UP FOR THK SESSION. Morning Chronicle.-The omission of Lord Lynd hurst's usual summing up at the conclusion of the session is an event of no little significance. It &nbsp; amounts to a confession, on the part of the Tories, that the Parliamentary proceedings of the period which has just elapsed cannot, by the utmost stretch of special pleading ingenuity, be converted into a plausible topic for the accustomed magniloquent boastings and fierce tirades of the swarm of second .rate orators, who strut and fume their little hour at inservative festivals during the recess. For once, re agree with Lord Lyndhurst-for once, we admire lis tact and taste. There are defeats so notorious, (hat the less that is said about them the better ; dis- graces so apparent, that any attempt to varnish them iver by sophistry, or brave them out by blustering, inly serves to enhance their sting. But although a irudent silence respecting the events of the session tay...
SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 1 January 1841
SYDNEY. Mr. Jamison, the Manager of the Loan Company, is on board the Perfect hourly expected from Port Phillip, and Mr. Boyd, the Manager of the " Royal Bank," may be expected in about a month in one of nine steamers vviiicli hare been purchased for these colonies by a number of mun of capital in Britain. Ou the authority of private letters we can state conn - dently that Mr. Boyd brings with him a large amount of spe- cie. In addition to these, a Bank called the " Scottiah Aus- tralian Bank" was in the coarse of formation in Glasgow in August last, and some of the parties connected with the es- tablishment may be expected early in the year. These arrivals of capital will have the effect of enabling the merchants to meet their engagements; but above all, they will raise the price of stock ; and as nionicd emigrants are daily arriving in the Colony (both at Sydney and Melbourne), the stockholders are sure to realize good prices for their stock; and we would recommend that no sales, ...
THE COURIER. Strenue et Prospere. HOBART TOWN, FRIDAY, JANUARY 1. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 1 January 1841
THE COURIER. âtrenue (t Drospm. HOBART TOWN, FRIDAY, JANUARY 1. The Lieutenant-Governor has been pleased to dis- miss Mr. Anstey from the office of Commissioner of the Insolvent Court, and to appoint Mr. Sorell in his stead. In observing1 upon this change, it will perhaps be requisite to state that it became a positive duty on the part of His Excellency, from the nature of a cor- respondence which Mr. Anstey had thought proper to institute with reference to the administration of the business of his court, wherein he betrayed a total ab- sence of everything' like courtesy or common feeling:, and forgot not only the respect due to the Govern- ment of which he was a servant, but that which he owed to himself and the station which he is presumed to hold. His appointment to the office after the wanton ex- hibition of personal feeling which he made in the Legislative Council, when he dealt in low and coarse insinuations alike degrading to himself and the cauce which he there came to defen...
