Lost Greenland. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 1 January 1830

Lost Greenland.   Captain MANBY, whose mind is ever actively employed, has     printed and given private circulation to a series of papers con- nected with a plan he contemplates for the recovery of these lost regions, and which he considers to be eminently important to   humanity, highly interesting to history, and likely to afford   an extensive source of information to many branches of science ; it would also, besides renewing an intercourse with a forlorn people, probably tend to open a beneficial traffic with this re-     mote and almost unknown part of the Polar world. This Colony was peopled (if at all—which is matter of doubt) about 800 years ago; it continued to hold some commerce with Iceland and Norway till 1406, when "no intercourse   was ever after accomplished." Captain Manby now pur- poses to make the discovery of this land and this colony, their existence or extinc...

The Layton, with 199 male prisoners, had arrived.       The Official Gazette confirms the statement we some time ago made respecting the abolition of the Hulks in England ;   and adds that this great improvement for these Colonies is owing to His Excellency General DARLING'S representation of the cheapness of provisions, and that it will throw an in- crease to the population of that Colony alone of perhaps 5000 prisoners. The Leda was taking in a quantity of live stock for Swan   River where fat bullocks are selling for £35 sterling a-head, and good milch cows for £40.   Building ground in Sydney still continued in great demand, and at very high prices.   Very ...

Dutch Obituary. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 1 January 1830

Dutch Obituary. A Dutch newspaper is a very curious illustration of Dutch character. It is about two-thirds full of advertisements, of which the following are a few examples from a single paper. Marriages occupy a considerable, space-some are simple an- nouncenments, others are a flourish on the part of the espoused : -"To their friends and acquaintances, we, the undersigned, are married." -Then come the advices of births, most of which tell the world that the lady has been brought to bed of a   " well shaped" child. Of these, all are signed by the hus- band, and they sometimes pour out a flood of affection on the lady.- But the announcements of deaths are the most remark- able-some of them you shall hear.-"To-day departed, after     a sickness of ten days, my beloved wife. She has left me and her grey-haired mother in a state of despair. Weep with us all who knew her-weep with my children. They have yet to learn their loss, which they will lea...
