We are happy to see the energy with which the new Bishops have entered on their high duties. Some of the primary charges which' we have seen, are not only impressive but eloquent, and we fondly hope will have the effect of correcting those irregularities which for roany years have been creeping into tbe church. The avarice too, to give it tbe gentlest term, which bas induced rectors so long and so unblushing ly to employ curates on inadequate stipends, some as low as401. a year, has had a great share in militating against the church. The framers of the late Clergy Act were however aware of this great evil, and have wisely provided against it. By that act a curate's salary must not be less than 1001. if the inhabitants of the place amount to 300 persons, than 1201. if to 600 persons, and 1501. if tbe population amount to 1000 persons. Serving two or three churches on the same Sunday is also expressly forbidden by the act. On the 25th of March annually every bishop must make a full an...

FROM A CORRESPONDENT. (Continued from our last.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 23 May 1829

FROM A CORRESPONDENT. (Continued from our last.) We do not make these remarks from any bad feel- ing towards our neighbours, such a sentiment is very far from our thoughts. We oan join them in their cry of " Advance Australia," with an enthusiasm al- most equal to their own. We consider the two colo- nies to be linked together, and mutually dependent, we think that they ought by every possible means to advance the iuterests of each other, and we believe that the ruin of the one would for ever blight the pros- pects of the other. We are destined to supply Syd ney with corn, and in the end it will be its part to provide us with sugars, wines, and a great proportion of those luxuries whioh can generally beobtainedonly under a warm, or even a tropical sun. It has within its immense circumference many varieties of climate, indicative of the future multiplicity of its products. We. again, possess one very similar we think to that of Great Britain ; it is no doubt warmer, and bleued with a...

He kept his head above water as long as he could, until obliged from weakness to let him go, at the same he observed him bleeding in the face and supposed he had received a spear wound, the man sunk shortly after and has not since been found. Lieutenant Shadforth with the whole of his detachment has been in pursuit of them all this week, he once got sight of two men, but being on the opposite side of an im- mense tier, it was impossible to come up with them. They still remain in this quarter, very little is thought in these days of a man or two being murdered by those barbarous savages. They robbed the cart of 300 lbs. of flour and several other things.

THE HOBART-TOWN COURIER. SATURDAY, MAY 23, 1828. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 23 May 1829

THE HOBART-TOWN COURIER. SATURDAY, MAY 23, MfigJ There bas been neither arrival nor departure of shipping duribg the Week. The Margaret positively sails for London on Wed- .< neBday, and the Georgiana for Sydney tomorrow. Last week the.schooner Darling arrived at Launces- ton from Sydney,but brought no news. The Lady Rowena, by letters from George town, had not got dear of the Tamar on Saturday last. A slight reaction seems to be taking effect in the price of both wheat and mutton. Good samples of wheat are sold at about 7s. Cd. per busbel. Tbe pri- ces usually given by the butchers for fat sheep is from 6s. to 7s. 6d. per head. The millers and other buyers of wheat of course only purchase the best samples, but the quantity of grain that has been partially injured by the rains after harvest, must gradually be brought to market, and will naturally operate ita raising the price of the bett qualitirs. The whale fishery which has commenced unusually early this season, promise...

FROM A CORRESPONDENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 30 May 1829

FROM A CORRESPONDENT,     We have now discussed at considerable length, the causes of the depression complained of as prevailing throughout the country, and we believe that we have sufficiently established the truth of our proposition, that however calamitous, its more immediate, results, affecting the fortunes of particular individuals may   be, it will nevertheless be of great ultimate advantage to the colony at large. We have insisted upon the benefits resulting ,to both colonies, and particularly to Van Diemen's land, from their vicinity to each other. Our subject, however, is not yet quite ex0 hausted, for while writing upon it we have several times been tempted to put the question to ourselves. Is there really so general and so important a depres- sion as that which has been forced upon our attention by the incessant lamentations of the colonial writers, and which we ourselves have admitted to exist, or have we been too hasty in our assum...

LEAN v. FAT. On Saturday last the Editor of the Hobart town Courier wa» brought up (the word up is here uaed, be- cause the prisoners are kept jn a dark, room under- neath, until brought up to be tried in the magistrate's chamber above) before the Chief Police Magistrate, Josiah Spode, Esq., charged by the printer and edi- tor of the Tasmanian and Aostral-Asiatio Review, with robbing their,establishment of twelve assigned Servants, and a large quantity of fat.

Only two men were seen, and they run- ning into a thick scrub it was impossible to come up with them. Tbey had a great number of dogs.

A smoke shortly after was seen on the top of the mountain, Lieut. Shadforth and Mr. Batman, with four of the soldiers, found a very easy ascent to the top, and which appears a regular track of the natives. The top of the mountain consists of immense flats with small rocks, and a great quantity of small shrubs, of a description not seen in any part of the island before. ...

THE RIVER HUON. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 6 June 1829

THE RIVER HUON. This river was first discovered in 1792, by the boats belonging to the expedition under Admiral D' Entrecasteaux, and named after Captain Huon Kermandee, of the Esperance. The island, called Huon island, lies in the centre of this river, at its mouth, where it falls into D'Entreoasteaux channel. This beautiful little island, containing about 300 aeres, stands nearly in the middle of the river, which at this place is about 3 miles wide. The western passage is the widest, but in the centre is a small rock, which is only conspicuous at low water, having the appear- ance of a small blaok speck, which, at' a distance, might be mistaken for a boat. About five miles up, on the north bank, is a large inlet, called (also by the French who discovered it) Porte des Cygqes, from the great number of black swans that frequent it. This beautiful bay extends for about S or 6 miles to the north, being agreeably diversified with pro- jecting points of land, clothed with elegant string...

FROM A CORRESPONDENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 6 June 1829

FROM A CORRESPONDENT. We have this week had the pleasure of perusing the Sydney Gazette, of the 16th April. It contains a short statement of the relative advantages possessed by the sister colonies, expressed in a tone of concilia- tion and good feeling, almost unprecedented in the history of the Sydney press. The editor upon the whole seems to view the subject impartially, or at least he oautiously avoids the setting down ' aught in malice.' In figurative and glowing language he as- cribes to us, a decided superiority both of soil and climate. He contrasts the influence of New South Wales and Van Diemen's land upon the human con- stitution, in terms which even we consider too strong. ' That indisposition to every species of effort, whe- ther of the head, the heart, or the hand, amounting to almost impenetrable apathy by which we, (the New Hollanders) as a people are generally distinguished, is contrasted with the vigour and animation of our more southern neighbours, who have retain...
