FROM THE ACADEMIC JOURNAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 1 August 1829

FROM THE ACADEMIC JOURNAL. Most persons unbecoming public writers or editors of newspapers consider it incumbent on them, at once to enter into controversies, and to nttac'k indiscrimi- nately evçry man's character. . This conduct is very reprehensible, and every man of sense must condemn it. in the first place it is unjust, as Hie individual if silent is supposed to be guilty of the charge, and if he answers Ihe writer be immediately involves himself in an endless contest ; and scoi.ndlv, it is very inju dioious, as he neither pleases himself nar the party he accuses, but on the cuntiary he must make many enemies. A great man once observed to his intimates, that by every favour he bestowed he made one un- grateful and a hundred dissatisfied. Ibis is very ap plicable to »hat we have just before said. We intend to .pursue a middle course We shall ribtehrend giving'oflt nee, by exposing the vict a and follies of the age, nor if we indulge in a lillie wit ni sarcasm at times, shall it ...

It is always advisable, if you are going to undertake a journey (or indeed nny thing else, unless you want to kill time and your" health both by lying in bed) to get up early in the morning. Our little party was therefore ready to start by day break. My friend who was to accompany me. and who had pitched his tent on lije otherside of the isba n trop, had just crossed with, his servant. Crossing a river indeed is not snell A light matter in ne» countries, as my friends in old Englabd may suppose, who are furnished with bridges, punts, or steam boats of all sizes, characters, and di- mensions to cross every inequality of surface that pre- sents itself. There is not lo this day any bridge a cross the Shannon, and lue river is in most season* too deep and rapid io allow of wading tnrough it willi safety on foot.
