NECROLOGY. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 22 January 1841
NECROLOGY. The legal profession and the public will regret to learn the death of Sir W. Garrow, which took place at his residence ia the Isle of Thanet, a few days since, at a good round age. He was born at Moncton Hadley, in 1760 ; in 1817 he was nominated to the Court of Exchequer, and has lived in retirement since 1831. Sir William had been a widower for more than thirty years, and has left but one daughter, the present Mrs. Eliza Lettsom, who, in 1804, married Mr. F. F. Lettsom, eldest son of the late Dr. Lettsom, of Camberwell, his (Sir William's) only son, the late Rev. Dr. David William Garrow, dying in April 1827. Admiral Sir Ross Donnelley, K.C.B., died on Wednes- day last at his residence in Harley-street, in the seventy seventh year of his age, after an illness of a few weeks. It will be in the recollection of our readers that a commis- sion of lunacy was issued at the instance of his family in June last, the gallant admiral having been for some time previously incapable ...

DREADFUL FIRE IN THE DOCKS OF THE ROYAL ARSENAL AT DEVONPORT-DESTRUCTION OF THE "TALAVERA," .« IMOGENS," AND '. MINDEN." On Sunday morning at half-past four o'clock, Lieut. Williams, R.N., superintendent of the dockyard police, was alarmed with the intelligence that the line-of-battle ship " Talavera," in the north or stern dock, was on fire I All hands were instantly on the spot with the engines, but so terrific were the flames that the total destruction of the ship waa already inevitable. The fire-bells were rung, and the workmen, with the military, called in. The tide was high, and plenty of water at band, but nothing could subdue the fury with which the fire extended southwards, towards the other docks and building slips, the rigging house, sail-loft, and the store-bouses. At a quarter to five o'clock, the " Talavera" was one mass of flame, which, communicating with the shed over bead, threatened to carry the fire to the extremity of the yard.

THE COURIER. Strcnue et prospere. HOBART TOWN, FRIDAY. JANUARY 22. HIS Excellency the Lieutenant-Governor has been pleased to appoint Mr. Perry to be Crown Solicitor, in the room of Mr. Ross, superseded. Mr. Sydney Stephen, it is understood, succeeds to the Commissionership of the Caveat Board, rendered vacant by the appointment of Mr. Perry to the office of Crown Solicitor. FROM private advices received from England, we have no doubt whatever that Dr. Turnbull will be confirmed in the office of Colonial Treasurer. Sir George Arthur, whose administration of the affairs of Upper Canada has rendered him not only one of the most popular Governors that ever ruled over that province, but has increased his reputation at the Co- lonial Office as one of the ablest of Colonial Gover- nors-a praise which long since Mr. Under-Secretary Stephen awarded him-has strongly urged the claims of the Doctor to promotion in the event of any higher office becoming vacant, and Lord John Russell at once ac...

TREATISE ON SHEEP &c. CHAP. X.—INDIAN WOOL. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 26 January 1841
TREATISE ON SHEEP &c. CHAP. X.-INDIAN WOOL. My attention was directed to the wool of India by the following circumstance. Towards the year 1834, a sample was sent from the India House to the Society of Arts, which was afterwards submitted to my in- spection, and upon its value I offered an opinion. Since that period annual importations from the same quarter have taken place, and the supply of this article now forms a new feature in our commercial relations with the empire of India. In the year 1835, no less than 773 bags of Indian wool were imported into London and 624 into Liver- pool, which at public auction sold at from 44 to lOd. per lb. although a few bags obtained 14£d. This species of wool is particularly white and washed clean, which renders it useful in several branches of our manufactures of white goods, although it contains a proportion of dead hairs interspersed through the fleece, a defect which diminishes the value, and yet by a little attention might effectual...

THE CABINET. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 26 January 1841
THE CABINET. Nature I'll court in her sequestered haunts, By mountain, meadow, streamlet, grove or cell ; - Where the poised lark hit evening ditty channbv And health, and peace, and contemplation dwell. There ttudy shall with solitude recline, And friendship pledge me to hit fellow swains ; There toil and temperance sedately twine ' The slender cord that fluttering life sustains : There fearless poverty shall guard the door, $¿4 And taste unspoiled the frugal table spread, And industry supply the humble ttore, And Sleep unbrihed his dent refreshing abed. White-mantled Innocence, etherial sprite, Shall chase far off the goblins of the night ; And Independence o'er the day preside, i Propitious power,-my patron and pride.-SMOLLETT. A prince who loves and feart religion it a lion, who ttoops to the hand that strokes, or to the voice that appeases him. He who fears and batet religion, it like the savage beast that growl« and bites the chain, which prevents hit flying on the passenger. ...
