The French at Tahiti. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Courier and Agricultural and General Advertiser — 8 August 1844

The French at TaMtti The French have fearfully retaliated on the Tahitans, for their pre?ious defeat. By the SIB JOHN BYNG we lear»» that they at tacked the Tabita n fort, and after a desper ate struggle, succeeded in carrying it. Ou the side of tbe Tahitans there were suppos ed to have been 200 killed and wounded, on the French about 15, but the number was variously stated. The first Hetitenaut of the French frigate UBANIE was said to have been killed, and the "Governor Parti cular" {-query Commander Bruàt) seriously wounded. Ko .quarter was given 011 either side. The island may therefore uow he con sidered a conquered dependency of France ; but how far the French Government will re cogui*e the actsof Governor Bruât, after tbe disHpprobalion they have ?expressed at the conduct of Admiral Dupetit Thoiuns, remains to be proved. We rather suspect their rep 1 inland to be what Sam Slick calls bunkum. Poor Queen Pomare's health, like her em pire, was in a declining state ; she was still...

Management of Bees in Summer. {From Chambers' Edinburgh Journal.)

We arc aware that the policy of her Majesty's Government has been, not to pro mote, but to restrain as much as possible, the use as well aa the manufacturé of ?* pints ; but the results of such policy have always proved, how ineffectual have been the en deavours of the Legislature to produce the ; desired "effect. liven in this Colony the manufacture of Spirits has been denounced by the Government, and viewed in the light of an injury rather than a benefit to -the lîevenue.

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Hawkesbury Courier. Sm-ïf any argument were urged to con vince the Government of the absolut neces sity of their making speedy Drovision for the repair of the main Roads & Bridges through out the Colony, that argument would be sup plied by taking " a one-horse shay"* and attempting to travel from Sydney to Wind sor at the present time. As the decision of the Legislature on the District Coun cil Bill will give the Government au op portunity of taking the Roads once more in charge,-I sincerely trust that some remedy will be speedily devised. I would suggest that Tenders should be issued for the repair of the most dangerous places, when, no doubt, the various Coach Proprie tors would be glad of the opportunity of un dertaking the work at the mere cost of the labor and materials, looking for rémunéra tion in th« sarine in their blacksmith's hills I and in horse-flesh.
