THE MUSE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 12 January 1828

THE MUSE. ¡ Beneath our feet, and o'er out head, Is equal warning given; Deneath ns lie the couutless dead, Above us is the heaven ! Their names are graven on the stone, Their bones are in the clay ; And ero auothcr day is doue, Ourselves may be as the}. Death rides on every passing breeze, He lurks in every ¡lower; Each season has its own disease, Its peril every hour ! Our eyes have seen the rosy light Of youth1« soft cheek decay, And Fate descend in sudden night On manhood's middle day. Our eyes have seen the steps of age Halt feebly t'vvards the tomb, And yet shall earth our hearts engage, And dreams of days tb oomc t Turn mortal, turn ! thy danger know; Where 'er thy foot can tread, The earth rings hollow from below, And warns tbee of her dead ! Turu, Christian turn ! tby soul apply To truths divinely given) ' The bones that underneath thee lie, Shall live for Hell or Heaven!'

MEDICAL EVIDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 12 January 1828

MEDICA L EVIDENCE. '' With regard to the lungs," says Mr. Abernethy, " which are collapsed, they are heavier than water ; they are a very light kind of animal matter, however, but tbey of com se will sink in water. They are very light, and when once they have been inflated, the air can never be got out of them so thoroughly but that they will swim ; and this* is a faol popularly known. I don't mean to say, that where the lungs have depo- sited matter in them, and have become indurated, that they won't sink ¡but I mean without disease; and I say this fact is popularly known. It is dwelt upon in criminal courts. A mother is suspected of destroying her child, and'the jury ask whether the lungs sink or swim. A medical man, of oourse, should be prepared for the interrogatories that may be put ; aud I can tell yon one thing, that if ever I went into a court of jus- tice, they should never get an opinion out of me, do what they would. I should just state the facts, and leave,them to form t...

THE COUNTRY POST. THE HARVEST. BLACK-MARSH, DEC.31, 1827. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 12 January 1828

THE COUNTRY POST. THE HARVEST. --000- ' f f BLACK-MARSH, DEC.ZX, 1827; SIR,-I read tho leading article in your last Couriei, on the subject of the rise of bread and wheat, vith much surprise. You state, that you never like to anticipate evil,-that you would rather put off the evil day, &o and that you do not by any means antici- pate a scarcity, with arguments to provis the strength of your position ;-now Sir I have been through many of the corn districts of Van Diemen's land, and, during the last ten years that I have been a settler, I never saw the harvest likely to produce so little; added to this the potatoe crops haVo suffered so much from frost as well as from want of rain, that I fear they are irretrievably gone. I do not intend to prognosticate that we shall absolutely want bread, but I am of opi- nion, that without the btriUest frugality very little surplus wheat will shortly be left to assist our brethren at Sydney, should they require our aid* It may be that the H...

THE -000 GENERAL POST. -»??«. SMYRNJ, AVG. 2. '* I landed here yesterday, and took np my quar- ters in the Italian locantla, on the beach, close by the residence of the consul, Mr. Wherry. His resi- dence is new and very extensive ; a passage through it brought us to the Franks' quarter, called Bond street. It is usually crowded, but Bt that time it was deserted, and the inhabitants were enjoying their mid- day sleep in the shade. Passing along the rows of tumble down mud houses, which form this lounge of fashion, we arrived at the most attractive part of the city-the fruit market and the bazaars. The fruit is built in fragrant pyramids, and at every turning are the trickling fountains of the sellers of sherbet. A small vessel of water is allowed to .fall drop by drop, on a little tin wheel beneath it, which being thus propelled at a quick rate, makes a noise to at- tract purchasers. The long line9 of arcades in the bazaars contain ranges of little square apartments, open' in front ...

Thomas M'Guire   was charged with aiding and abetting, and Matthew Pennell as an accessory before the fact. It appealed in evidence that a man named James Davis and Thomas had agreed together to rob the Treasury. Thomas said to Davis if he could make it all right with the soldiers he would get every thing ready. Thomas then asked James if he would join in a robbery at the Treasurer's office, to which James agreed, saying he must get him the impression to make the, keys. Then there were three pieces of huon pine cut out by Thomas, one for obtaining the length of the pipe, another covered with wax to get the circumference, and a third to shew the wards. Pennel gave these pieces of wood thus ascertained to Thomas about four months before the robbery, who asked him if he could get an impressio...
