SELECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 20 February 1824

SELECTIONS.   The defending of a bad cause is worse than the cause itself. — Anon. Charity has been elegantly defined by a learned and reverend author, to be " a naked child giving honey to a bee without wings." Naked, because ex- cuseless and simple; a child, because   tender and growing; giving honey, be- cause honey is pleasant and comfort- able; to a bee, because a bee is laborious and deserving; without wings because   wanting and helpless. If thou deniest to such, thou killest a bee ; if thou givest to other men such, thou provest a drone. — Anon.     Bigots are like some trees that grow by the sea-shore, which do not spread their branches equally on all sides, but are blown awry, and stand entirely one way. — Toplady.       It is with thoughts as it is with words,   and with both as with men; they may grow old and die.

TO THE Editor of the Hobart Town Gazette. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 27 February 1824

TO THE     Editor of the Hobart Town Gazette. SIR, Having observed in your Gazette of 16th January, an account of a successful experi- ment in preparing Barilla from an indigenous shrub I think the settlers of Van Diemen's Land should thank you for calling their attention to an article of export, which may be obtained with so much facility.   The plant appears to be the Chenopodium bac- catum of La Billardiere, and arranged under the genus Rhagodia by modern Botanists. In this fine climate, I see no reason to doubt that the various species of Salicornia and salsola, cultivated in southern Europe, might   easily be in troduced here; and that, whether the Rhagodia be preferred in the market or not, Barilla of the best sort might assuredly become an object to Settlers on the sea coast.—  Another plant, better known, and more gener-           ally demanded, deserves the serious attention   of the whole inhabitants in this colony—I mean    Tobacco. ...

POYAIS. From the Greenock Advertiser, August 16. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 27 February 1824

POYAIS. From the Greenock Advertiser, August 16 In our last we alluded briefly to the un- favourable accounts regarding the emigra- tion to Poyais, obtained by the arrival of the Catherine, Swan, of this port, from Honduras, on Tuesday, after a short pas- sage. As we have taken considerable pains to inform ourselves on the subject, we communicate the following particulars, with unhesitating confidence of their accuracy in every material point of detail. Early in the year, the Honduras Packet, the first vessel, we believe, which carried out settlers to Poyais, arrived at Black River with 60 persons, and was soon after- wards followed by the Kinnersley Castle, which sailed from Leith with 160 emigrants, consisting of various descriptions of arti- sans and a few agriculturist. The people, by the latter vessel, we understand, were, chiefly conveyed out at the expense of Sir Grigor M'Grigor, and were to be maintain- ed from the stores sent out in the ship with them, for one year, during ...

VATHEK. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 27 February 1824

VATHEK.   Those only who are read in the wild   and fascinating fictions of Eastern poe- try can appreciate the merits of this curious volume. It shadows forth all those fairy agencies, and magic illusions which glow in the pages of the Arabic Tales, while it is superior to many of them in the striking grandeur, of its morale, and the simple structure of its narrative. The imagery has, throughout, the same rich and gorgeous colouring, and the tone of refined sensuality per- vades every character and every incident. The legend is shortly told. The Ca-   liph, VATHEK the Third, of the warlike   race of Abassides, is like all the de- scendants of the Prophet, imbued with a keen relish for the sciences, particu- larly for the science of divination or astrology. The settled discoveries in these speculations cannot shake his thirst ; and he pursues with a frenzied avidity, every phantom which can mi- nister to his ruling passion. In orde...

MARCH. [To he continued throughout the year, in regular monthly succession.]' March was Originally the first month of the year among the Romans. It took its name from Mars. í ?> Several remarkable festivals occurred in this month. On the first, the new fire was lighted on the altar of Vesta. The Matronalia and1 the Ancilia were also cplebrated on this day.-. The Matron- alia was a festival held with great pomp, and by married people only ; by the wo- men, in remembrance of the peace made by their sex between the Sabines and Romans; and, by the men, to obtain the favour of the Gods pn their marriage, the women went to the temple of «f$fo, and presented the goddess with flowers, with which they were themselves crown- ed. On their return they received the felecitations of their husbands and friends. The men sacraficed, in the morning, at the temple of Janus. The day ended by a sumptuous entertainment. TÇhe women slaves had the; same privilege during this festival, as the men had dur...
