TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 6 October 1840
TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. Sia,r»Tlie Church Act, after n very short trial, hos proved dow delusive wore the anticipations of its warmest advocates. On this Act in connection with the state of the Colony which preceded it, and another Act that recently passed the Legisla- tive Council, I am desirous of making a few observations. Few persons of any creed will doubt that England, in send- ing out her criminals to Australia, and making no adequate provision for teachers, lay or clerical, has acted in a spirit unjustifiably parsimonious. The want of that instruction winch may bo obtained in every parish in England has operated most unjustly towards the convict-«hose highest interests ought not to be forfeited, and has proved n serious detriment tu many families who have been induced to emigrate and settle in these colonies. At the time the Church Act was passed some legislative enactment of that nature was imperatively cal led for. It has been asserted that family prayers are very ge...

ADELAIDE. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 6 October 1840
ADELAIDE. We have received Adelaide papers to the 22nd of September. The Governor has returned thanks to Major O'Halloran for his conduct in the expedition against the natives. There has been a court of in- quiry held relative to the execution of the natives ; and we are informed that although there was not suffi- cient legal, there was enough moral evidence to esta- blish the guilt of the parties executed. The subject has excited much discussion, as to the power of the Governor to delegate to Major O'Halloran such a commission as enabled him to inflict summary punish- ment without any form of trial whatever, except Major O'Halloran's own judgment of their guilt, formed from circumstantial evidence. His Excellency has also returned thanks to Mr. Pullen for discovering a &nbsp; navigable channel at the sea mouth of the Murray, &nbsp; containing a six-foot draught of water. Preparations are in progress for the election of municipal officers for the new Council. ADELAID...
THE COURIER. Strenue et Prospere. HOBART TOWN, TUESDAY, OCTOBER 6. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 6 October 1840
THE COURIER. Stvrmie et Urogpcre. HOBART TOWN, TUESDAY, OCTOBER 6. Tub Legislativo Council has adjourned to Monday fortnight. His Excellency has started to Oatlands to be present at the grand Midland Agricultural Show, which it is expected will be the best of the kind that has yet taken place in the island. Sir John Franklin is patron of the Association, and will accordingly take the chair, at the dinner held in honour of the occasion. From thence his Excellency proceeds to Toombs's Marsh, in order to inspect the means that have been lately taken to dam it for the purposes of irrigation and the supply of the Macquarie in the sum- mer months, and also to judge of its adequacy to this important object. The question is a disputed one, and remains as yet under trial, Mr. Macmichael having fixed a location order on the marsh, which he claims, not only in virtue of priority of right, (but here again his title is questioned, as a contempora- neous application for hu reservation was made by...
COLONIAL PRESS. (From the Launceston Advertiser, October 1.) [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 6 October 1840
COLONIAL PRESS. (From the Launceston Advertiser, October I.) A petition has been forwarded to Hobart Town to His Excellency the Xieutenant-Govemor, willi the prayer of which we entirely agree. The impolicy of the regulation some time since established by the Government, by which people were allowed to build put close to the footpath, is every day becoming more evident, the regularity and uni- formity of the town having been completely and for ever destroyed. The petition, after pointing out that in conse- quence of this permission the streets of Launceston are gradually becoming more and more circumscribed aud confined, alludes to the intended sale of the allotment upon which the old Court House stands, and the opposite ponier, which are advertised to be sold on the 28lh Novem. ber next. The prayer of the petition is, that His Excel- lency the Lieutenant-Governor will please to cause a por- tion of the allotments alluded to, together willi a" part of the allotment now occupied as a ...

SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 6 October 1840
SYDNEY. The increase of Duties' Bill appears to have passed through the Legislative Council without a single ob- servation from any honourable member. The duties &nbsp; thus provided are 9s. the imperial gallon on all spirits the produce of the United Kingdom, or of Her Majesty's Plantations, and 12s. upon all other spirits. Upon all wine a duty of £15 on every £100 in value of such wine is fixed, and upon all tea and sugar, flour, meal, wheat, rice, and other grain and pease, a duty of £5 per cent., and upon nil other goods, wares, and merchandise, not the produce of the United Kingdom, a duty of £10 upon every £loo value of the same. Owing to. the several arrivals from South America, and the good prospect of the forthcoming harvest, wheat has fallen to 7s. 6&lt;1. and 8s., but Van Diemen's Land wheat is always worth Is. 6d. more than the average quotations. Sir G. Gipps strenuously contends that the ad valorem duty is the duty payable on what an article is worth in...

LOCAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 6 October 1840
LOCAL. Navigation of the Derwent.-A project is on foot for making the Derwent navigable as far as Hamilton, which it is estimated can be done by the construction of locks, and the cutting a new bed around the base of the rocky falls, wherever they arrest the free current of the stream. Mr. Orr has offered to subscribe £1,000 towards this undertaking, and bis example has been followed by others in a very liberal spirit, so that we trust the Government will feel themselves called upon to aid with all the labour they can afford the accomplishment of so truly national a project. The consequences will be most important to that part of the country, and to the colony in general, as thousands upon thousands of fine land can be put into cultivation, the golden pro- duce of which can thus be wafted down to Hobart Town in a few hours. It is estimated that the cost of making the Derwent navigable as far as Hamilton, will not exceed £30,000, that is, reckoning labour at the English price. May we...
