That peepest from the bank so modestly, Thou art come from a source invisible, And thou hast some important words to tell. Thou art come like the " still small voice" of Him Who whispers his truth in the evening dim ; Who shines in the stars of tbe azure sky*, And gems the dark world with piety.

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 16 February 1841

MISCELLANEOUS. The following anecdote is amusing, and as such worthy of quotation ; " We have had occasion to remark that the very appearance of association sometimes works important effects ; awhim sical instance of which is said to have taken place in the erection of a magnificent range of buildings for literary purposes in Liverpool. Two gentlemen there, of a scientific caste, conversing together, lamented the waut of accoramo. dation at that place for the use and encouragement of letters, aud agreed lo advertise a general meeting lu procure sub- scriptions in order to raise a suite of buildings for this end. The advertisement was published, and the friends arriving at the set time and place, found that they two constituted the whole assembly. * The point is lost I' ex- claimed the one. ' By no means 1' said the other ; calculat- ing belter the goodness of the cause, and the liberality of the merchants of Liverpool. ' You shall be chairmau.aod I shall be secretary, aud we shall m...

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. The Nottingham game list contains the names of thirty- nine sporting clergymen, on whom the wags of the county have conferred the title of the "Thirty-nine Articles." The ceremony of opening Blackfriars bridge, which, from the immense improvements and a Iterations" m ade in the structure, may be called a new bridge, has taken place, in the presence of a great multitude. The icpairs have cost t'00,000. The congregation of the holy office at Rome, having ap- plied to the Pope to know if animal magnetism was law- ful, aud if penitents might be permitted to be operated upon, his Holiness has replied, that the application of principles and means purely physical to things und effects which arc superuulurnl, for tho purpose of explaining them physically, is nothing but an unlawful and heretical deception.

FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. ; A telegraphic dispatch, dated Toulon, the 2d instant, and Algiers of the 28th September, says-*1 A brilliant «flair has taken place in the chain of the Atlas which separates the Medjana from the Desert. The Spahis of Constantina and Setif, and a squadron of the 4th Chas- seurs, carried the Col de Ouled Biaham, which was de- fended by the troops of Abd-el-Kadir's brother. The enemy has been completely driven out of the Medjana." SPAIN. The papers publish some official documents, consisting of Espartero'« proclamation on leaving Barcelona, his reply to the Queen accepting office, and the Queen Re- gent's permission to allow him to go to Madrid before he took'the oaths at Valencia. On the 29th he made his triumphal entry into Madrid, and was received at the hotel of the Junta with the vivas of multitudes. The city was illuminated.

[ADVERTISEMENT ] Fitzroy Place, February 12,1841. SIR,-As there appears to be some misunderstand- ing in the public mind, as regards my conduct in the late unpleasant affair between Mr. Brock, Colonial Assistent Surgeon, and Mr. E. P. S.

On the morning of the 96th ultimo, I went to the Colonial Hospital, being desirous of seeing the operation about to be performed on the patient,-Parker-after the facts already laid before the public had taken place, Mr. Brock came to me and . certainly but situated as I am, it might be as well to get some one else.'

THE COURIER. Strome et Drospcrc. HOBART TOWN, TUESDAY. FEBRUARY 16. IT is far from our inclination to indulge in any observations which might tend to aggravate the sense of punishment under which a party may be labouring, but we feel ourselves called upon in the fulfilment of a public trust to notice the recent case of libel, for which Messrs. Jackson and Addison have been con- victed, without at all extenuating the nature of the libel itself, which, to use the words of the Chief Jus- tice, we " have no hesitation in denouncing as a libel of the grossest character," but endeavouring, if we can, to palliate the conduct of the accused, not by re- fining the plain terms of our common language, or by a cheating of the understanding, whereby our intuitive faculties are attempted to be imposed upon by sophistical jugglers in words-by no such means as those, which we leave to their unjudicious advocates, but by an appeal from judgment to feeling, and the errors at all times incidental to h...

ODDS AND ENDS. HODEL AND PANORAMAS OF HOBART TOWN ANO SYDNEY. (At the Gallery of the Society of British Artists, in Suffolk-Street.) [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 19 February 1841

ODDS AND ENDS. MODEL AND PANORAMAS OF HOBART TOWN AND SYDNEY. (At the Gallery of the Society of British Artists, in Suffolk-Street.) The model of a town, accompanied with a panorama, may be supposed to give the best possible idea of its site, its structure, plan, und peculiar features. Mr. Peck has enabled us to trace the Derwent through the capital of Van Diemeu'a Laud to the hill country beyond in a pano- rama, and has shown us in a model, Hobart Town swell- ing and falling on a variety of little gently rising knolls, and as many dimpled hollows, with Macquarie Haven at at its front, and at its rear, rising in snow-capped majesty the basaltic masses of Mount Wellington. The whole has the air of a watering place in a retired and hilly country. The streets are laid neurly at right angles, are long and pretty wide. A quaker-like sim. plicity and plainness pervades the architecture even of the public buildings, aud quaker-like quiet reigns every- where. It looks like a town asleep. Ev...

COLONIAL PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 19 February 1841

COLONIAL PRESS. CoaoNxa's laauuTv-We copied last week a paragraph from one of the Launceston papers, giving an account of a dreadful coach accident which occurred on the road lead* .tag into Launceston, and by which an unfortunate woman, named Jane Burnfield, was killed on the spot. A Coro- ner's inquest has since been held, before P. A. Mulgrave, ?Esq., which terminated in a verdict of manslaughter against -the driver of the coach. "Tho coroner in putting the case to the jury said-that da law, if a person in the performance of an unlawful act .causes the death of a fellow creature, he is guilty of man- slaughter; or if performing a lawful act in an unlawful manner, he would also be guilty of manslaughter. The .point for their consideration in the present case was, whether the upsetting of the coach arose accidentally, or whether it was occasioned by the .extraordinary number of passengers which it appeared were on it at the time. If they come to the latter conclusion, he had no hes...

WOOL. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 19 February 1841

WOOL. It will be seen by the following circular, dated October 8th, 1840, from Messrs. Loughman and Hughes, that there has been an advance in the price of wool : The sales of colonial wool, which begun on the 29th ult., and ended this day, consisted of 4,039 bags of New South Wales wool. 2,233 bags of Van Diemen's Land wool. 1,446 bags of Port Phillip wool. 184 bags of South Australian wool. 1,2(15 bags of Cape of Good Hope wool. 887 bags of East India wool. 10,487 bags of wool, besides about 1,000 bags of German, Spanish, Odessa, and other kinds. The concourse of buyers attracted by these sales continues to increase, and on this occasion was considerably larger than ever. The demand was very animated, and an advance was re- alised on last August sales of )}d. to 2d. per lb., or IO per cent., on Australian and Cape wool ; for good, clean, long stapled lambs' wool, the competition continues, and prices were obtained quite out of proportion to all other sorts.

TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 19 February 1841

TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. SIR,-At the Police-office on Tuesday, two men were charged with robbing the Orphan Schools of provisions and clothing, and another man, a constable attached to the establishment, with feloniously receiving the same. Mr. Price informed Mr. Poultney, the District Constableof New Town, Ih'il he had received information some time ago of the weeding system carried on at the schools, and that uot only were some of the constables, under Mr. Poultney's ' especial charge, concerned in thèse peculations, but a part of the plunder had been even conveyed to the station and lhere consumed,-of course by the constables. Now it is rather a curious fact that, during tlie last month or two, house-robberies have been very frequent in New Town, scarcely a night having passed without an occur- rence of this kind. True it is that Mr. Poultney, who we understand is aman of the Stiggins' school of morality, has imbibed a very bitter animosity against those worst of sinners, th...
