TREATISE ON SHEEP &c. CHAP. 5. WASHING THE FLEECE ON THE SHEEP'S BACK. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 5 January 1841
TREATISE ON SHEEP &c. CHAP. 5. WASHING THE FLEECE ON THE SHEEP'S BACK. When the season arrives for the flocks to be dis- burdened of their fleece, an inclosure should be assigned, into which the sheep should be driven pre- paratory to the commencement of the operation of washing. This place should be carefully cleared of thistles, burs and dead grass, indeed of every thing liable to adhere to the fleece. In Saxony it is cus- tomary to immerse the sheep into water the day previous to washing, which is done for the purpose of damping the fleece and rendering it more accessible to the operation of the fluid; although it must be acknowledged that this process is likely to occasion cold to the animals, which might probably be avoided by the adoption of another method. Suppose, for example, the sheep intended to be washed were confined within a narrow circle, so as to render it possible to sprinkle them regularly over with a small engine, or watering pot. By this simple pro- cess ...

THE COURIER, MONDAY, JANUARY 4. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 5 January 1841
THE COURIER, MONDAY, JANUARY 4. GREAT excitement has been occasioned at Sydney owing to the arrival of an order in Council by which New South Wales is to be divided into separate coun- ties, nineteen in number, and Port Phillip erected into a distinct government, the boundaries being pre- viously determined. The Bishop moved in Council certain resolutions against this order, and a petition was subjoined to be forwarded through the Governor to the Queen praying Her Majesty to revoke the &nbsp; order. A public meeting was to be held on the subject, and every one appeared to think that New &nbsp; South Wales was about to be cut up and carved to suit the caprice or the interests of the new Emigra- tion Commissioners. The whole of this turmoil has arisen out of a cause not in existence, as we shall presently show from an extract out of the Colonial Gazette, for the New South Wales Bill as amended contains no clause for the division of the territory of New South Wales, but...

ENGLISH. FRENCH COLONIES IN CASE OF WAR—SLAVERY. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 8 January 1841
ENGLISH. FRENCH COLONIES IN CASE OF WAR-SLAVERY. Journal des Débats.-England, which has the reputation of understanding pretty well her own interests, is far from partaking- of our apathy as to colonies, and that, not satisfied with governing 120,000,000 of subjects in India, and with supplying Canada, the Antilles, Guyana, her possessions at the Cape, and her factories on the coast of Africa, with her productions, she is daily making new sacrifices to extend her Indian frontiers on the side of Afghan- istan, to create in New South Wales tho nucleus of a population, and to found important establishments in New Zealand. It is in the interest of her colonies, or her factories, and to protect her commercial outlets, that she is constantly endeavouring to lay hold of military positions. Why did she take Malta, Gibral- tar, Aden, Buschir, and Karek ? Why has she taken possession of the Falkland Islands ? Why does she plant her standard on the smallest island that she discovers, if it be ...
