TREATISE ON SHEEP &c. CHAP. XII. THE ALPACA—THE PALMITE AND CONCLUDING REMARKS. (Concluded from our last.) [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 5 February 1841

TREATISE ON SHEEP &c. CHAP. X11. THE ALPACA-THE PALMITE AND CONCLUDING REMARKS. {Concluded from our last.J I have now closed my labours ; but before I take leave of my reader I feel called upon to state that, in the scope and design of the preceding treatise, my aim has been to convey to him that practical information which is requisite for the successful management of sheep, and by means of a methodical arrangement to place before him a comprehensive view of the whole subject. I have been minute in my details and in some instances copious in my extracts ; in the first place, because I address' myself to parties residing at a great distance from the market for their produce and in want of instruction on topics connected with sheep« husbandry ; and, in the second, because in the infancy of our grazing colonies works of reference can only be accessible to a limited number of persons. The importance of agriculture and commerce, as sources of national wealth, as well as of indiv...

SPIRIT OF THE ENGLISH PRESS. THE FROGS AND THE TURKEY—A FABLE FOR THE FRENCH. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 5 February 1841

SPIRIT OF THE ENGLISH PRESS. THE FROGS AKO THE TURKEY-A FABLE FOR THE FRENCH. TIMES.-ÄSsop has somehow or other omitted the following fable :-" The President of the Common Wealth of the Frogs found his constituents growing feverish. . You must do this,' ,Baid one. « You .must do that,' said another. Being a-diplomatist on the grand scale, he asked the whole Republic of Gre- nouille to dine with him. But he must provide some entertainment. He looked round, and fortune favoured him. He saw at a distance a turkey attacked by a lizard. . C'est tres heureux,' cried the President, rubbing his fins, and winking his yellow eyes. He hopped up to his guests. ' This is Sep- tember,' he began. 'You all love game.' (Amongst frogs turkey is considered game.) He made the most particular inquiries of each what part they preferred. ' I just ask before cutting the bird up ; it will be dismembered directly.' The frogs began to look very hungry and very warlike. Each armed himself to the teeth with a s...

CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 5 February 1841

CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. So many accounts have reached us from Natal, and from the country to the west of the Draakberg, pur- porting that a system of domestic slavery amongst the emigrants is becoming very general, that it would be absurd to affect to believe they are altogether baseless. It is affirmed that a traffic in native children is a mat- ter of every-day occurrence, and that tho authorities, if they do not openly countenance it, take no mea- sures to suppress it, or to punish those who are engaged in such nefarious dealings. We would be the last to say a word in disparagement of a whole people, founded on the inconsistencies or offences of a few of their number, but we are assured that amongst the emigrants the sale of native servants takes place under the very eye of the Government, and if so, then to all intents and purposes it is the sin of the community, and must be treated accord- ingly. It behoves the emigrants to look carefully to themselves in this matter. Let them refle...

CHINA NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 5 February 1841

CHINA NEWS. We take the following paragraph from a late num- ber of the Sydney Herald. Its authenticity, however, is much to be doubted : A rumour prevails, that information has been received of the settlement of the China question. We have not been able to trace this to any authentic source, but we give it as wc heard it. The Admiral (Elliott) is stated to have gone to Pekin, and to have seen the Emperor, who had received him very graciously, and upon his representations had debased Lia, and agreed to re-establish the trade upon the .old footing ; and also that the £2,000,000 should be refunded to the British Merchants who had suffered by the opium trade.

WAR WITH CHINA. (Latest Particulars.) [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 5 February 1841

WAR WITH CHINA. f Latest Particulars.) The following account of a war with China will at the present time be read with avidity : " Yes ; that's a dreadful smash, sure enough," said my aunt. '-There was Mrs. Starkey, who keeps the great Staffordshire warehouse at .Smithfield Bars-she had an overdriven beast run into her shop only last week. At first, she says, he was quiet enough, for besides racing up and down M. John street, he had beeu bullock-hunted all o»er Islington and Hoxton fields, and that had taken the wildness out of hitit. So at 6r.it he only stood staring at the jugs, and mugs, and things, as if admiring the pat- terns." "And pray," inquired my uncle, '«where was Mrs. Starkey in the meantime ?" " Why, the shopman, you see, had crept under the counter for safety, and Mrs. Stat key was in the back parlour, and saw everything by peeping through a crack in the green curtain, over the glass door. Sn the mad bull stood staring at the crockery, quiet enough ; when unluckily, w...

SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 5 February 1841

SYDNEY. By the Marian Watson, we have received files of Sydney papers to the 27th January. They contain no news of any importance. Their English intelligence is down to the 30th September only, so that we are at least a fortnight in advance of the Sister Colony.   We furnish some colonial extracts, from one of which it will be seen that six of the socialists have escaped from Norfolk Island. It appears that on the night previous to their contemplated departure they broke open their cells, and having eluded the vigilance of the sentinel, made their way into the mess-room of the officers, where they stole six dozen of wine. The Weather. -- Since our last, the weather has been very beautiful ; in fact, more pleasant than it has been for a length of time. We sincerely hope that the late rains have not been very prejudicial to the crops in the country. The Sydney Markets. -- We have never, in this colony, seen such a splendid display of fruit, and of better quality. The peac...

NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 5 February 1841

NEW ZEALAND. A letter, dated Port Nicholson, New Zealand, January 1st, 1841, has been addressed to F. W. Unwin, Esq., with a perusal of which we have been favoured, and have been permitted by that gentleman to publish the substance of it. The information is various and important, and will, doubtless, do much to interest the public upon several important points. The letter states, that there had been a succession of arrivals of large vessels, with immigrants and mer- chandise ; that the population of Port Nicholson was about 2,400, was daily increasing, and, like the bees, the people had begun to swarm off-at Cloudy Bay, for example, there were already many Bettlers, and more were expected. The decision of Sir George Gipps, in favour of titles as purchasers from the Crown, by virtue of the immigration fund, had given an impetus to every« thing» Town allotments had risen in value ; £1,500 pej| acre had been given in good situations, and sha£fl leases had been granted at £200 per annum...

THE COURIER. St[?] [?] [?]rospere. HOBART TOWN, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 5. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 5 February 1841

THE COURIER. Strenue ti ïlrosptre. HOBART TOWN, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 5. WB have received intelligence from China to the 26th of August. The Admiral had left' Chusan to endeavour to negotiate with the court at Pekin. The troops were suffering from dysentery and intermittent fever. The fort at Porto da Cerco, on the isthmus of Macao, indicating the Portuguese and Chinese boundaries, had been cannonaded and stormed by our forces, and the celestials put to the rout with the loss of 300. The ships engaged were the " Hyacinth " and " Larne." From private advices we learn that the conduct of our troops has been most licentious, in consequence of which the more respectable Chinese have all de- parted for Canton. The trade is wholly closed along the coast. Some attempts were made at smugglings tea in bags, but they were detected, and it was found upon trial that the tea was spoiled. LIBEL CASE.-Yesterday, pursuant to adjournment, Messrs. Jackson, Addisons, and M'Laren, appeared in the Supreme Co...
