THE CABINET. A CHURCHYARD THOUGHT. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 15 January 1841
THE CABINET. A CHURCHYARD THOUGHT. To whom belongs this glassy mound, With osiers intertwined, So poor, compared with those around. So narrow and confined ? For those around have ample room, And proudly serve to tell ' , Where, laid within the silent tomb. Wealth, birth, and grandeur dwell ; And fond inscriptions blason forth, (Alas how little read!) And storied urns record the worth And virtues of the dead ; But here there's neither stone or um _ | To mark the humble sod ; ~ \. '.? Enough I no marble need proclaim Where sleeps the child of God_E. T. When a statue had been erected by his fellpv-cititens of Thasos to Theogenes, a celebrated victor in one of the public games of Greece, we are told that it excited so strongly the envious hatred of one of his rivals, that he went to it every night, and endeavoured to throw it down by repeated blows, till at last, unfortunately successful, he was able to move it from its pedestal, and was crushed to death beneath it on its fall. This, if...
THE COURIER. [?] HOBART TOWN, FRIDAY, JANUARY 15. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 15 January 1841
THE COURIER. Sbtnnue et Çnwpcre. HOBART TOWN, FRIDAY, JANUARY 15. His Excellency the Lieutenant-Governor has been pleased to remove Mr. Jones from the office of Solici- tor-General. ADVICES bave been received from China to the middle of September. There is no truth whatever in the report that Chusam had been re-taken by the Chinese. Beyond the taking of this place by the English, and the interruption of trade, no impression whatever seems to have been made on the Celestials. Admiral Elliot had gone northward, with the view of obtaining a nearer approach to the Imperial pre sence, in order to procure if possible a perusal for his dispatches. Provisions of all kinds were represented as scarce at Chusam. We direct attention to the Commissariat tender which appears this day in our columns. We have received Port Phillip Journals to the 2d of January. A public meeting had been held on the 28th Dec, on the subject of the separation of Port Phillip from New South Wales, and with the view of...

ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 15 January 1841
ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. The preliminary measures for the investigation into the affair of Prince Louis Napoleon Bonaparte, we are told by the Moniteur of the 23rd, are in rapid progress. Nothing has as yet been done in public. It is said that the Prince and about fifteen of tho principal rebels have been inter- rogated at the Conciergerie, in the presence of'Baron Pasquier, Chancellor of France ; and masses of documen- tary evidence hate been looked over. The Priuce seemed very much cast down. He stated, that he considered himself the lawful heir of his uncle, the Emperor Napo- leon ; that he thought the institutions of the Empire were those best suited to the French nation ; and that he was persuaded that the majority of the people, and above all the army, would Bupport bis attempt. He still retained those opinions ; but admitted that he had been misled, if not betrayed. When the money which had been found on board the steamer was alluded to, he exclaimed-" It is mine ; I beg it may ...

From the large quantity offered, and the dullness that has existed for a considerable period in the different manufacturing districts, coupled with the total absence this spring of any orders from America, the sales commenced languidly, and at a depreciation of about 2d. per lb. on June prices, and 4d. to Gd. on the sales of this period last year ; fortunately, as we anticipated, the continuance of this very favourable weather, promising an abundant harvest and a good home trade in consequence, caused an increased attendance of buyers, and an improvement in prices ; we may now there- fore reasonably hope for a s...
