DREADFUL EARTHQUAKE IN SPAIN[?] [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 5 September 1829

DREADFUL EARTHQUAKE IN SPAIN, There was a very violent and destructive earthquake in Murcia, in Spain, oh the 21st of March, which be- gan at six in the evening and lasted till 6 next morn- ing, bringing a succession of 48 shocks, the first be- ing the strongest. At Benejuzar four craters opened, two of which threw out lava, and the other exhala- tions so fœtid that they were felt at more than the distance of a league. At Buzot the mineral water disappeared, and burst forth again at more than two leagues distance from the town. The river Segura has changed its bed, and now joins the sea by a new channel. The craters which have opened on the spot where Torre-Vieja formerly stood throw out from diffe- rent apertures torrents of putrid water. The earth- quake of the 21st of March was accompanied with a subterraneous noise, resembling that of several divi sions of cavalry put to flight and followed by their camp trains. The shocks and oscillations were so strong that all the bells of th...

THE STATE OF OUR LAWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 12 September 1829

THE STATE OF OUR £AWS; ' In the appendix to the late Parliamentary report on the state of our Jaws, is a valuable communication from Mr; Denman, the common Serjeant. We make tbe following extracts : A just defèrenoe attaches to the authority which bas gradually formed, taught and acted upon the existing law. The practical result indeed of this natural feel- ing, ought to be a real confidence that every part of it bad it's origin in reason, and may therefore be trac- ed to some clear principle. The search for truth ought to be boldly pursued, with the certainty of being rewarded by discovering it ; but however diligent, it may, on some occasions, happen to be fruitless, lead- ing to some quaint rule, which presents us with bad Sense, in worse Latin, or revealing with the principle, the foot that it has now become inapplicable, or ob- scurely exhibiting the form of it, clogged with abuses, which deprive it of all power to act. Wherever snob is the end of the investigation, respect for...

THE MAKING OF THE CORACLE, Which was the means of saving the lives of the Crew and Passengers of the brig Cyprus. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 12 September 1829

THE MAKING OF THE CORACLE. Which was the means of saving the lives of the Crew   and Passengers of the brig Cyprus. The gallant enterprise of Popjoy and Morgan in venturing out to sea in quest of relief to the unfortu- nate crew and passengers of the Cyprus, having exci- ted considerable interest, we have endeavoured to give our readers some idea of the nature and construc- tion of the small coracle which they managed to put together at Research bay, and in which with two pad- dles they contrived to make their way through a stormy sea, until they met with the Orelia off Par- tridge island, at 20 miles distance. The artist has shown no small skill in depicting the despair of Lieut.   Carew, and the encouraging manner of Mrs. Carew, with her little infant, as they watched the progress of the small bark on which their only hope of preserva- tion was placed.

GOVERNMENT HOUSE, HOBART TOWN. (As seen from the Uiver.) A fortnight ago I divulged my opinion on the church as ii is n'-w affected by the Catholic relief bill, und it is incumbent on me to be equally cinrlid »is to ti t- slate. It ha* been the fushion in all ages to bi- llie ni the badness of ihe times, to decry the justness ol' (internment, to deplore the general increase of crime, the dereliction of virtue amonest the great, the lulu) abandonment of principle among the small, the deiuornliz Dion of men and manners, and in a word the impending ruin and decadence of the state.

COBBETT'S CORN. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 12 September 1829

COBBETT'S CORN. I have this week had the pleasure to plant in my garden at Knocklofty, some grains of that valuable species of Indian corn brought of late into such noto- riety in England by Mr. Cobbett, and known by the name of his corn. It was presented to me by my kind friend Mr. Kemp who received some cobs of it by the last arrival from England, along with Mr. Cobbett's entertaining treatise on it printed on paper manufac- tured from the straw. Doubtless if this valuable grain succeeded so well in the neighbourhood of London as to produce, during the last unfavourable season, at the rate of 95 bushels an acre, it will be equally if not more productive in the congenial climate of Van Die- men's land, where it cannot fail to prove a valuable f ature among the resources of the colony. Mr. Kemp has kindly distributed portions of the seed among va- rious settl rs in different parts of the island, so as to   insure its success and prorogation the more rapidly. This plant ...

Those persons who have already left this country for the Swan river, before they embark- ed their persons and property in so perilous an un- dertaking, were assured by the gentleman appointed   Governor, to whom they were referred by the Colonial Office, that the first settlers would have the first choice, and that no land would or could be allotted to any person whatsoever in this countiy.
