ENGLISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 1 January 1841
ENGLISH EXTRACTS. Testimonial to the Earl of Eglinton.-It has been deter- mined by the knights and nobles who took part in the " gentle passage of arms" held last year at Eglinton, to present the lord of the castle, beneath whose walls the effort was made to revive the hardy exercise of the tilt yard, with a substantial token of their high appreciation of his courteous and hospitable entertainment. The testi- monial is to assume the form of a piece of plate of great value and rare workmanship. y The Cilifë Tribute to the Sheriffs.-The piecesof plate volcd by the Court of Common Council to the Sheriffs Evans and Wheelton, consist of two silver candelabra for six lights each, and cut glass disk io the centre, supported by open silver frames in dead silver. The bases consist of a three-sided plinth, with bright panels, supported by three massive scroll-feet of rich workmanship.

THE CABINET. THE GRAVE. FROM THE GERMAN OF ROSEGARTEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 1 January 1841
THE CABINET. THE GRAVE. FROM THE GERMAN Ot ROSIOARTXN. Fearful is the Grave : Cold winds round it knelling, * Mistv showers swelling, Grief and Terror make their dwelling In the silent Grave. J Lonely is the Grave : Soft doth that stillness call, Cooler the shadows fall. Deepest peace is whispering all In the quiet Grave. Dismal is the Grave : Irksome'is that narrow wall ; i i lu breadth, and length, and depth and height, Just seven pices bound them all. Dismal is the Grave. Lovely is the Grave, A sweet défonce its narrowness ; From the ever wearying press, From the juggling pageant proud. From the fools in motley croud, Shields us well that narrow shroud,- ~ ' -> Lovely is the Grave. " i Dismal is the Grave,- " ' Its darkness blacker than the night. Through which no sunbeam glances bright, Not a star may ever gleam, Or the softer moonlight stream ; * Dark and dreadful is the Grave. Lovely is the Grave, Its shadow flinging O'er the weak wanderer, and refreshment bringing ; While ...

[advertisement.] TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. Sir,-I bec;, through the medium of your influential journal, to bring under the notice of the Government, the following particulars. Not satisfied with oppressing the publican« of Hobart Town, and its vicinity, under the Licensing and Police Acts-the constabulary have disco- vered that, by the first-named Act, no publican is to open his licensed house, on a Sunday, before half-past one o'clock. A notable discovery this ; and instead of warn- ing, the publicans, or explaining the matter to them, a re- gular foray is made against some dozen or so, of " good marks," who were fined-none less than £5-and several fur being open only five or ten minutes before the lawful time. Had this arbitrary and oppressive clause been en- forced from the beginning, there would not have been so much cause for complaint; but it was not; and in fact it is only a new scheme for plundering the publicans. When it is considered that these exactions are perpe- tra...

THE COURIER. Strenue et Prospere. HOBART TOWN, TUESDAY, JANUARY 5. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 5 January 1841
THE COURIER. Strrnue et prospere. HOBART TOWN, TUESDAY, JANUARY THE Quarter's Revenue, compared with the corres- ponding* quarter of last year, exhibits an increase in the Customs, of £4,535, being this quarter £23,530, which is an enormous revenue from this branch. This is the surest test of the increasing prosperity of the colony. The whole of this quarter's Revenue is £41,505, the Expenditure £37,507. The Revenue is less by £6000 than that of the corresponding quarter, owing to the decrease in the proceeds of the sale of crown lands, and some other items ; but in all these branches which may be said to effect the comfoits of the people, and from which we can form an estimate of their condition, there is a marked increase, as in the Customs and Port-office. We find in the Expenditure a payment of £6,578 to the Commissariat, for advances made to the Colo- nial Agent in 1838, for supplies. It is stated as " balance," and therefore we now trust that this is the last we shall hear of ...

THE CABINET. COURTESY, AN ATHENIAN STORY. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 5 January 1841
THE CABINET. COURTESY, AN ATHENIAN STORY. In Athens, ere its sum of fame had set, Midst pomp and show the gazing crowds were met, ( Intent for ever upon something new, ) The mimic wonders of the stage to view. Lo, where the wide extended Circus spreads, In galleried ranks, its sea of living beads, Ranged in close order, rising row on row ; -The void arena claims the space below. The seats were filled. But ere the shows began, A stranger entered : 'twas an aged man. And while he sought a place with aspect mild, The polished young Athenians sat and smiled ; Eyed his confusion with a sidelong glance, But kept their seats, nor rose on his advance. Oh I for a burning blush of deeper hue. To mark the shame of that self-glorious crew. How poor the produce of fair Learning's tree. That bears no fruits of sweet Humility I The growth of arts and sciences how vain, In hearts that feel not for another's pain 1 Not so the Spartan youth, whose simpler school Instilled the plain but salutary rule ...

Sir George Gipps laid on the table of the Legisla . tive Council, a despatch of Lord John Russell on the | - revenue and expenditure of the colony. The question of police and gaols is treated in reference to the finances of the colony; the justice or injustice of charging the colony with the expense is not once met ; the endeavour seems to be to show that the financial difficulties have not been brought on so much by the police, as by other causes, and that they are " to be | attributed to the increasing expenditure of the colonial establishments." This is quite a begging of the question. Whether the Colonial Legislature is provident or improvident is not the point They have little temptation to be prudent, seeing that "the reputation of a well filled treasury," to which my Lords of the Treasury at nome attribute the increasing demands upon it in the colony, and from thence infer that financial embar- rassments must follow, can also stimulate the appetite of their lordships to lay h...
RICHMOND RACES. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 5 January 1841
RICHMOND RACES. The course was rather poorly attended on Thursday last, but on the following day it presented a much gayer appearance, and indeed as much so as it is ever likely to afford, until the ladies shall be pleased to bestow upon the occasion the honour of their pre- sence-while shorn of this attraction the races lose their greater interest, and become, from the conse- quent absence of a large number of respectable per- sons, rather low in character. However, not the slightest evil marked this circumstance last week, for the whole amusements passed off with the utmost harmony and decorum-and we would, therefore, fain hope to see more families extend their support on the next occasion, for we see no reason why the Hobart Town Races should be so generally patronized, and those of Richmond, always equally interesting, be comparatively deserted. We know not whether our friend 'Tiser succeeded in discovering any of his grandiloquent eyes this time, or whether he for- tunately fel...
