THE COUNTRY POST. (He is the best friend of his Country who lets in most light upon its condition). Richmond, December 18, 1827.—By some accident yesterday af- ternoon, (supposed from a brick maker carrying some live embers     to light his kiln, and letting some of the pieces fall) the grass   being dry caught fire, the whole township was enveloped in flames, raining on the ground like wild fire. The wind being from the N.W. it shortly extended to Mr. Butcher's dwelling, which, but for the prompt assistance of his servants, must have been burned to the ground, being composed only of timber and very dry. The thick brush fence which parted Mr. Butcher's farm from the town- ship in Torrens-street, and across River-street is totally consumed. The flames were rapidly extending towards the fence round the gar- den attached to the gaol, but by the exertions of the keeper and his two sons they were prevented. The posts and rails collected for &amp...

THE COUNTRY POST. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 29 December 1827

THE COUNTRY POST. No news, as the saying is, is good news; and we hope it is the case this week, during which we have not received the account of any one incident, birth, marriage, or death, from any part of the interior,—nothing but our usual communications about assigned   servants and other matters of a private nature. We presume, not- withstanding; that the ears of corn have swelled a little more since our last—that the few showers which have fallen have given some encouragement to the growers of turnips, potatoes and peas—that clearing, building, fencing, and other improvements are going on— that new chapels, markets and other public institutions are build- ing and projecting, and the old ones, we trust, not falling into   neglect—and, in a word, that the black natives and the runaways   have both alike learned the propriety and adopted the measure of running back to their own quiet and peaceful homes.

THE HOBART-TOWN COURIER, SATURDAY, JANUARY [?], 182[?]. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 5 January 1828

THE HOBART TOWN COURIER SATURDAY JANUARY 5 1828 At the last sessions at Preston, a boy only seven years of age, convicted of theft, was sentenced lo transportation for life. On stating this fact the ^editor of the Morning Herald, assumes the dictatorial chair, and declaims most lustily against the existing laws of England, and all its consequences. " The march of in- tellect," says he, " must have been rapid indeed, which assigns to a child of seven years old the consciousness between right and wrong, so distinctly as to visit his abberations towards the latter with a sentence, which has of course been inflicted by persons who are themselves come to years of discretion." Now we think it is to be regretted, that gentlemen who favour the world every morn- ing with their sentiments on the most grave and serious subjects; should not give themselves time to consider whether those senti- ments be correct. We think it wonderful that censors, who pre- tend by their oracular flat to fix the ...

Wo have on ficqueut occasions endeavonied to as. certain the existing regulations for impounding live stock, that tbey might be geneially understood and acted upon. Nevertheless great uncertainty as to the power and extent still prevails, and the gi eater part of the quairelling, bickerings, and contentions which too often arise among settlers, have their first origin at the pound. The state of the pound-keeper himself, as Mr. Abernethy says of the medical man in giving evi- dence, is in such cases truly awful and by no means to be envied. He is threatened on one side with actions at law for the amount of damage, if ho liberates the poor beasts, and on the other for their detention, if he dors not. " Here," says one, to the poundkeeper, " here are four beasts which I have found this morn" ingumong my potatoes, you will get u pound for them."
