MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 19 July 1839

MISCELLANEOUS. Newspapers.-The largest collection known belonged to the late Dr. Burney, comprising a numerous and rare scries of these periodicals from the year 1603 to 1818, amounting in the whole to seven hundred volumes, and valued at 1,000 guineas. These important documents for the illustration of history were purchased by the govern- ment for the British Museum, end together with com- plete sets of all the newspapers published from 1818 to the present time, consisting of more than 3,000 volumes, form a record of public events not to be paralleled in any other library in the world. Nimrod says-' The greatest stake on record, depend- ing on a single heat, was 5,200 guineas.'. This was won by Dorimont, a horse, four years' old, the property of the Earl of Upper Ossory, at Newmarket, in 1776, This fortunate animal, the Bay Middleton of that day, also won for his noble owner, the same season, in matches and sweepstakes, eight other races, making the sum, in hard cash, of 7,899 guin...

CANADA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 19 July 1839

CANADA. The Montreal Herald declaims as violently as ever in favour of '* wholesale execution'* of the insurgents, and recommends that it should take place in the parishes to which they belong, as the Canadian habitans are not even yet convinced that the government has any real intention of punishing them. The same paper exults over what it considers the near prospect of a war with the United States on the boundary question. The American papers make mention of. an in- struction given to a Committee of the House of Representatives of the State of Maine, " to in- quire into the expediency of extending the jurisdiction of this State, over what lias been heretofore denominated the disputed territory ;" and it further appears, that the agents of the State have commenced operations, and threatened to capture British property found on the " town- ships belonging to Maine and Massachusetts " Whig forbearance may delay for a brief space the vengeance of an insulted empireand injured people ;...

PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 19 July 1839

PORT PHILLIP. We have received Port Phillip papers to the 6th of July. One of the papers says, that the, colonists' hopes of having Colonel Snodgrass for Governor are dashed by the announcement that Mr. Latrobe has been appointed to the office. We extract from the Port Phillip Gazette, a paragraph which will be read with some interest as indicative of the intention of government to form a settlement at Portland Bay, in the district of Australia Felix. The same journal loudly complains that Mr. Henty, who has a settlement in that quarter, will be likely to suffer from the aggrandizing spirit of the government, who thus take advantage of the success of private enter- prise to establish a colony with a number of pub- lic functionaries so soon as the feasibility of the undertaking is determined. It ought, however, to be remembered, that the establishment of a local government will render the settlement much more valuable and secure ; nor need private enterprise be retarded by the seemin...

The Courier. FRIDAY EVENING, JULY 26, 1339. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 26 July 1839

THE COURIER   FRIDAY EVENING, JULY 26,1339. ACTUM EST-it's all over, it's done ; the act of i merciful construction by which it was ingeniously ' attempted to shift the odium of the excise inqui- sition upon a jury of twelve, instead of leaving it to the three 'Kings who at present reign over ii, or to the tenderness of the Legislative Council, is, as we predicted, nowhere to be found. Its projectors, in order to avoid the chance of de- tection, must have swallowed it, for we now un- derstand that it is lost-absolutely gone-and the adjourned Council will not even be able to hold an inquest on its remains. Time, liy a familiar prototype, was supposed to devour his offspring the Bill has buffered the samo fate. The sacri- fice must have cost many a pang to the authors of its existence-embittered by the remembrance that it was fondly cherished and by them rocked and cradled into becoming growth-such a sensation of sadness as the eagle is described to have felt on seeing th...

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 26 July 1839

MISCELLANEOUS. Mode of Dressing Hair.-What I would orge upon your notice is the necessity of putting your hair into becoming and graceful positions, and if you have confessedly very straight hair, of making the roost of a bad subject by calamistralions and circum- bendibuses. Discard tbo use of the small tooth comb, unless you wish to injure yourself, or unless your skin is pachy-dermatous as a Rhinoceros. It does no good whatever; a brush and common comb are all you require to make you gentlemanly and fascinating. It is scarcely my duty to address the ladies, but I would humbly request them to be a little more attentive to the method of dressing their hair. They feel under the necessity of following any new mode freshly imported from Paris and Londou. This ¡B all wrong-one particular style of hair dress- ing must be more becoming than another, and to change from crops to ringlets, from Madonnas to Sausages, argues a most illiberal ta3te. Eschew all jewellery and especially diamonds...
