LOSS OF THE CLONMEL. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 19 January 1841
LOSS OF THE CLONMEL. The following is Mr. D. C. Simson's narrative, who came up from the wreck in an open whale boat : -- On Wednesday afternoon, the 30th December, I embark- ed on board the steam-ship Clonmel, Lieutenant Tollervey, commander, bound from Sydney to Port Phillip. The pas- sengers and crew consisted of seventy-five individuals. At four P.M., rounded the south head of Port Jackson ; wind from the southward, blowing fresh. Next morning, 31st, found us off Jarvis's Bay ; wind still adverse with a &nbsp; strong head sea, the vessel progressing at an average of seven knots an hour. At daylight, the 1st January, Cape Howe bore W. S. W. of us ; in the course of the morning sighted Ram Head, and took a fresh departure, steering for Wilson's Promontory. The wind was now fair with smooth sea, and our course S. W. 1/2 W. ; the wind and weather continuing favourable during the day and night. A little after 3 A.M., of 2nd January, all the passengers were startled by the shi...
PREPARATIONS FOR WAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 22 January 1841
PREPARATIONS FOR WAR. The Medea, steam-frigate, Commander Frederick War- den, was paid two months' wages in advance on Wednes- day, and sailed on Thursday morning for Chatham, to embark a detachment of the 33rd regiment for Gibraltar. The Vesuvius ateam-frigate, Commander Henderson, will call at Chatham in a few days to embark detachments of the 1st and 02nd regiments for the same destination. The Comet steam-vessel, Lieutenant Syer, was paid wages iu advance on Wednesday, but has not yet sailed. On Monday was launched the Bteamer Polyphemus. She is intended partly to fight and partly to transport men and munitions of war. She seems well calculated to do either. Her burden is 800 tons, her sides are sharp and almost perpendicular, and a set of little windows along the after cabin gives her the appearance of carrying a second tier of guns. One captain, three sergeants, and one hundred and forty six men, including corporals and drummers, of the Wool- wich division of Royal Marines, ar...
ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 22 January 1841
ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. The Continental news received since our last pub- lication is momentous. Admiral Stopford, after his inconsequent negotiations and retreat from Alexandria, repaired to Beyrouth where he arrived on the 9th of | September. On the 11th the town was bombarded, and within a few hours it was a heap of ashes. Thus a flame has been applied to the train which seems to menace every part of the Levant with war. Before the attack was made, Admiral Stopford and Commo- dore Napier called on Solyman Pacha to surrender, in order to spare the effusion of blood. Solyman replied by a fierce retort, alluding to the blood which the as- sailants had already shed io preliminary attacks ; and he referred them for a specific reply to the place from which Admiral Stopford had just come, Alexandria. Ibrahim Pacha was in the neighbourhood of Beyrout ; and the allies were rapidly arming the discontented 'people of Syria. Other places on the coast had been attacked by detachments of the all...
THE UNITED STATES. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 22 January 1841
THE UNITED STATES. li» Intelligence has been received from the United States to the 8th of September. It is of little interest politically ; nor had any marked event occurred in the commercial world. Exchange on London was 6} to 7 per cent, premium ; on Paris, 5 francs 26 cents. The price of United States Bank Shares was 62 at New York ; at Philadelphia 65} to 05J. At the latter^lace 2,000 shares had been «old within the [rst week "Of September. *'Ht Is now rumoured," says the .Boston Mercantile Jour, al, " that only tu o vessels will be sent to the East Indies, the ConstfHntion and a sloop of war. This is owing to the low state of national finances. It is even doubtful hellier these vessels will be sent away until after the election. Doubtless, for the same reason, the President, in virtue of the unheard-of and unprecedented authority vested in him by his partisans in Congress, to suspend at his pleasure any or all appropriations for military or naval purposes, has ordered the work...

TREATISE ON SHEEP &c. CHAP. IX. MANAGEMENT OF SHEEP IN GERMANY. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 22 January 1841
TREATISE ON SHEEP &c. CHAP. IX. MANAGEMENT OF SHEEP IN GERMANY. The economist, who may feel disposed to refer to the Agricultural History of Germany, will find that with- in the last half century a few merino sheep, obtained, almost it might be said smuggled, from Spain, have caused a complete revolution in the flocks of the Ger- manic empire. Bourgoing, in his " Modern State of Spain," published iu 1807, observes that in Saxony, Wirtemberg, Denmark, and Sweden, these sheep had been naturalized with success. He says that " at Fredericksburg, a palace of the King of Denmark, he saw a flock of Spanish breed, which was in the fourth generation and had not degenerated." He adds " that the original flock was chosen in Spain by a Dane, well versed in agriculture." From very small stocks in various parts of Germany, and more particularly in Saxony, it is now an es- tablished fact that a race of sheep has been bred, pro- ducing wool of a more delicate texture and finer fibre than an...

THE CABINET. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 22 January 1841
THE CABINET. There is no God,-the fool in secret said ; There is no God that rules on earth or sky; Tear off the band that folds the «retched head, That God may burst upon his faithless eye. Is there no God?-the stars in myriads spread, If he look up, the blasphemy deny. Whilst his own features, in the mirror read, Reflect the image of Divinity. Is there no God ?-the silver stream that flows, The air he breathes, the ground he treads, the trees, The flowers, the grass, the sands, each wind that blows, All speak of God; throughout one voice agrees, And eloquent His dread existence shows ; " ._¿¿ i Blind to thyself, ah 1 see Him, fool, in these. \.W ] Milton's widow was wont to say that he really looked up himself as inspired; and his works are not without a spirit i enthusiasm.
