LINES ON HIMSELF. SV TUOMAI WYNNE KINO, ESQ. OF nOCll£8TEli. li* W .Al: li:'. i am, perhaps, as you will say, A very curious creature ; For 1 am changing every day, My name, my shape, and nature. Tom King I am-and so am known, But isn't it provoking? Wrhenever I to jest am prone, They tell mc 1 am Jo King. Though fat I am, as any bull, With aptitude for linking ; If I by chance seem rather dull, They swear that I am thin KING. In figure I am short and squat, Yet if with ladies walking, I laugh, and chatter, and " all that," Tbey vow that 1 am fall King. At night they do admit my claim, When Sol to rest is sinking; They call me by my proper natue. And really find me Wynne KrNc. ..

FROM A CORRESPONDENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 2 May 1829

FROM A CORRESPONDENT. Whatever either retards or accelerates the pros- perity of Great Britain, whether with respect to her domestic or her foreign policy, carries with it much that is of vital interest to every Van Diemcner. She is the pilot who must direct the vessel of our infant state, whether to a safe or dangerous harbour. Al- though intent upon her own mighty destinies, we mnst still regard her with awe, love, and veneration, for to her we are indebted for what we now are, and so far as human foresight can reach for what our future for- tune shall be. It Would therefore be a needless ex- pense of time to apologize for offering to tho public a few observations upon her present condition, & when doing so the prominent object for our consideration seems to be, the probable effect of the great debt upon her commerce and her power. Her present mode of existence is un pa ral el led in history. There is not to be found in any annals an analogical case to assist us in forming...

FROM A CORRESPONDENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 9 May 1829

FROM A CORRESPONDENT. It wîll be our own fault, not that of our subject, if in entering a little further into the detail of the pre-   sent state of the colony, We do not prove satisfacto rily that Government is not to be blamed for any part of our misfortunes, but rather to be lauded for pursu ing the even tenor of its woy, by which, although it has not been enabled to prevent, it has yet palliated many of those evils which would otherwise have caus- ed our instant and permanent destruction. The pre- sent depression we have already shown, was beyond   its influence. The storm was too powerful. It could only save us from being utterly wrecked. Our little vessel has under its guidance reached a harbour where we doubt not it will soon be refitted, and again set sail, with a more expert and industrious crew, and a more favouring gale than it ever before experienced. We must recollect that the Parliamentary grant of money for Van Diemen's land is, though libera...
