THE CABINET. GEMS FROM THE OLD ENGLISH POETS. VANITY OF RICHES. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 8 January 1841

THE CABINET. GEMS FROM THE OLD ENGLISH POETS. VANITY OF RICHES. By Cowley, 1618-1667. Why dost thou heap up wealth, which thou must quit, Or, what is worse, be left by it ? Why dost thou load thyself, when thou'rt to fly, Oh man ordained to die ? Why dost thou build up stately rooms on high, Thou who art underground to lie ? Thou sow'st and plantest, but no fruit must see, For death, alas ! is sowing thee. Thou dost thyself wise and industrious deem ; A mighty husband* thou wouldst seem ; Fond man ! like a bought slave, thou all the while Dost but for others sweat and toil. Officious fool ! thou needs must meddling be In business that concerns not thee ! For when to future years thou extend'st thy cares, Thou deal'st in other men's affairs. Ev'n aged men, as if they truly were Children again, for age prepare; Provisions for long travel they design, In the last point of their short line. Wisely the ant against poor winter hoards Ihe stock which summer's wealth affords In grasshoppers...

COLONIAL PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 8 January 1841

COLONIAL PRESS. Wreck or the Isabella.-The brig CfiaWoffe, Captain , Tregurlha, fell in \«ilh the pinnace of the barque Isabella, " «enr Port Phillip Heads, on the 28th December, having on board five seamen, and a mate, from whom the follow- ing particulars of the «week of that vessel were obtained. The Isabella ran ashore on the south-west coast of King's Island, during the night of Saturday, the 19th December. The vessel had not gone to pieces, but strong southwest- erly winds had since prevailed, from which it «vas feared , that both the vessel and rnrgo might bo discharged. There «vere nineteen people left on the island, and amongst them two ladies who were passengers on board the Isa- bella. All the boats were stove in with the exception of the one in «vhich part of the crew lind thus gallantly ven- tured to risk their own lives for the safety of their fello«v sufferers. Immediately upon their arrival'at Melbourne, a vessel «vould of course be dispatched to the assistance of th...

THE COURIER. Strenue et Prospere. HOBART TOWN, FRIDAY, JANUARY 8. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 8 January 1841

THE COURIER. âtrenue et Çtoiprw. HOBART TOWN, FRIDAY. JANUARY 8. This being the commencement of a new year, while we congratulate our readers on its advent, we ought not to forget the year that is gone. It will not be uninteresting or uninstructive to take a retrospective view of the past, if we can derive therefrom a lesson as to the future. Experience has been said by Milton -----to attain To something like prophetic strain and by a more modern poet, the sunset of life has been described as casting before it the shadows of coming events. The truth is, that human nature and human passions are so alike in all ages, that as boys when they lose an arrow shoot another to find it, so will experience, by taking a survey of the past, be enabled to trace out, or at all events form, some cal- culation about the prospect of the future. In refer- ence however to our political condition, if we look to Downing-street as the compass whereby to steer, we shall find ourselves in a sea of uncertain...

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 8 January 1841

MISCELLANEOUS. Poetry and Poets of the day -We are of opinion that the objections which are now raised by some against the utility of poetry, and the indifference manifested by more to its charms, have their origin neither in conviction nor insensibility. A much more obvious cause appears to exist in the prevailing character of our times. The truth is, we possess nothing, or almost nothing of poetic genius among us at present. We have abundance of thrice-trans milled imitations-tiny streamlets of verse purling through newspapers and magazines and foolscap volume* ; but we have not that which desceuds from the high fount of genius impregnated with the golden ore that gives its value, and betokens the richness of the source whence it flows. Thomas Moore, whose least praise is that he is the first of living poets, has long since " hong his harp upon the willow," and strikes carelessly and at distant inter- vals its magic chord-as if only to tell hiB countrymen that the muse, which is t...

TREATISE ON SHEEP &c. CHAP. VI.—SHEEP SHEARING. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 8 January 1841

TREATISE ON SHEEP &c. CHAP. VI-SHEEP SHEARING. We learn from Strutt that there were two festivals observed annually by farmers in England, regularly in the spring and at the end of summer, or the beginning of autumn, but not confined to any particular day. The first is Sheep-shearing-the second Harvest Home. Both of these periods were, in ancient times, celebrated with feasting and a variety of rustic pas- times. " At present," he adds, " excepting a dinner, or more frequently a supper, at the conclusion of the Sheep-shearing and the Harvest, we have little re- mains of these former customs." That the custom of shearing the fleece was adopted in the earlier ages may be seen by referring to Holy Writ, where in the 31st chapter of Genesis, 19th verse, it is «aid-"And Laban went to shear his sheer. That the period of sheep-shearing was also held as a season of festivity may be seen in the 35th chapter of the 1st book of Samuel, 4th verse-" And David heard in the wilderness that...

THE THEATRE. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 8 January 1841

THE THEATRE. We call the attention of our readers to Mrs. Clarke's announcement of the performances for her Benefit on Monday next. We think it but an act of justice to render this indefatigable caterer for the public amuse- ment all the support in our power, especially on this occasion, the last either ourselves or the public will have of bearing any serviceable testimony of her praiseworthy and toilsome career-she being about to leave for England. We have no doubt, from the peculiarly adverse circumstances which prevail here, with reference to theatrical amusements, that Mrs. Clarke has little to congratulate herself upon since coming amongst us-but she appears to have encoun- tered the endless difficulties around her with a zeal and perseverance which of themselves recommend her strongly to our own, and we hope to the public's best sympathies ; we do therefore sincerely hope that the good-will which her exertions cannot but bave commanded will be evinced by giving her on this occ...

LOCAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 8 January 1841

LOCAL. Lady Franklin positively returns with the Abeona, and may thus be expected in about a fortnight. We trust the party may make their excursion in safety, although it is anything but a propitious season so far as temperate weather is concerned. A failure in town has recently taken place, arising out of the recent serious insolvencies ; in the pre- sent case, however, we learn that it is but a matter of expediency to avert some undesirable priorities of claim, the assets being fully equal to the liabilities;   and that the party will meet with every reasonable assistance and support in his temporary difficulties, his strictly honourable and upright character having secured him the good-will of all with whom he is connected.

GEELONG LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 8 January 1841

GEELONG LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. Land Sale.--The largest sale which has yet been at- tempted in Geelong, was held yesterday by Mr. Williams and Mr. Purves, the two principal Melbourne auctioneers. The sale consisted of town and suburban property, horses, cattle, &c.; but the parties from Melbourne appear to have brought the infection of the panic along with them, so that the Geelong purchasers were afraid to launch out in their biddings. Some few lots with frontages in Corio- street fetched three guineas per foot. It ought to be ob- served, however, that there is a high limestone ridge between Corio-street and the wharf, so that it will be a considerable time before the street can be rendered avail- able. It has struck us as somewhat strange, that the re- sidents in Geelong are not so well aware of their own im- portance, as are the visiters to the town ; this arises from their ignorance of the arts by which Melbourne has been bolstered up to its present premature supremacy.--Gee...

THE ANTARCTIC CONTINENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 12 January 1841

THE ANTARCTIC CONTINENT. The exploring expedition of the United Slates, consist- ing of the " Peacock," " Porpoise," Fly ing Fish," and the " Vincennes," under the command of Lieutenant Charles Wilkes, of the United States' Navy, left Sydney on the 24th December, and parted company on the 1st and 3rd of January. Macquaiu's Island was reached, and Emerald Island not found where laid down. On the lOlh of Jan. the "Vincennes" «as in C1 S. among icebergs, which baffled her, mid she returned westward. In long. 104*27 E" and lot. OG"20 S. they saw land, which the ice would not let the crew reach. Their furthest southing was lat. 67*4, long. 14730 £. This was called by Lieutenant Wilkes Disappointment Bay, as it cut o IT all his hopes of proceed- ing south. He believes, from the sluggishness of the needle and other points, that this is very near the south pole. On the 26lh, after a storm, and great danger from the icebergs, they made land, and entered a bay of ice points and volcanic rocks...

MISCELLANEOUS. London Missionary Society.-The last annual meeting of the London Missionary Society, in the great room, Exeter-hall, was one of the most crowded of the season, the hall being filled in every corner with ladies, and the platform with gentlemen. Sir George Grey, Bart., took the chair, and presided until 1 o'clock, when his official duties rendered it necessary that he should quit the meeting. The right bon. baronet was succeeded in the chair by Mr. Thomas Wilson, the trea- surer of the society. The secretary read the report, which was of a highly satisfactory nature. The number of the society's missionary stations is at present 361 ; the num ber of missionaries 150; and the number of assistants, native and English, in foreign parts, 451. During the past year 28 new missionaries have been sent out with their wives and families.

TREATISE ON SHEEP &c. CHAP. VILwSKIN WOOL. . As these pages may probably be perused by persons who are desirous of making themselves acquainted' with the method practised in England in the ex- traction of wool from the skins of slaughtered sheep, .or those that have died a natural death, I sought in- formation on the subject from individuals conversant with this branch of business, known under the deno- mination of fellmongers, and the following is the result. The skins should be obtained as soon as possible after the death of the animals, when this process is usually adopted. The first operation is to place the skins, one by one, on a flat stone and to beat the parts round the head with a wooden mallet, for the purpose ,of loosening any clots, or tufts of coagulated blood adhering to them. The skins thus prepared are then thrown into ti vat of water to »oak, in order to soften any substance, or concretion, which might attach to the wool. After remaining immersed from 10 to ...
