WEST INDIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 5 July 1839

' WEST INDIES. The packett Linnet arrived at Falmouth on the 1st instant, bringing papers from Jamaica to the 27th December ; from Barbadoesand Trinidad to the 12th, and from Antigua to the 18th. The contents of these papers are moat important. The new House of Assembly in Jamaica met on the 18th ; but having in their address to the Go- vernor declared that they adhered to the resolu- tion of the former House, they were adjourned on the 21 st to the 5th of February. The island, however, was apparently tranquil, as the Go- vernor intended to despatch two regiments to North America-a step censured by a portion of the press, which also teems with charges against the stipendiary magistrates of encouraging the extravagant demands of the labourers. In the other islands the currency question absorbs atten- tion, to the exclusion of almost every other, and Setitions and remonstrances on the subject have een prepared for transmission home in many of them. One newspaper proposes that commu- n...

BRITISH NORTH AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 5 July 1839

BRITISH NORTH AMERICA. The Royal William steamer arrived at Liver- pool on Sunday last, after a tempestuous passage of 17 days from New York. The papers from Canada contain an account of an incendiary out- rage on the Vermont border, the perpetrators of which were known, and had been officially de- manded by the Canadian Government, for trial on the charge of arson. Four more of the Pres- cott prisoners were executed on the 4th of Ja- nuary ; and on the same day the court-martial suspended its sittings to the first week in Fe- bruary, after trying 140 persons, of whom ten have been executed. Out of the original number, 159, only 13 remain untried, two having died in the hospital, and four appearing as witnesses against the rest. The American papers gene- rally speak of the " sympathizing invasions" as over, " if too many of the young prisoners are not executed." " Every life saved now," says the New York Morning Herald, " may save a dozen hereafter."-Two of the Sandwich pri- soners,...

THE FUNEREAL SONG OF THE GERMAN STUDENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 5 July 1839

THE FUNEREAL SONG OF THE XSERMAN STUDENT. As it may not have occurred to many of our readers to have witnessed any such spectacle as 1 the funeral of a German sludent, it will not be out of place here to give a slight sketch of the formalities which are observed upon this solemn occasion. The funeral takes place at night, and by torch light, each student being provided with a torch ,and marshalled into particular companies, ' distributed according to the clubs to which they belong, under the guidance of respective leaders or captains, who are caparisoned in a particular uniform, consisting of jack-boots, leather breeches, a military cut coat, with broad white belt, to which a sword is suspended, and to crown the whole, a cocked hat, with an immense plume of black-dyed feathers. Shortly before the bier is borne out, you will see these gentlemen very conspicuous, amid the glare of torches, marshalling their respective phalanxes, but not forgetting, even in death, the petty feuds and a...

PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 5 July 1839

PORT PHILLIP. Our Port Phillip intelligence reaches to the middle of June. We are sorry to learn that the fines for drunkenness at the Police-office amounted in two weeks to no less a sum than £21. The whole of the fines levied during that period ex- ceed £79, an enormous sum for the extent of the population, and an unequivocal proof of a licen- tious state of society. The Port Phillippians may pride themselves over the colonists of South Aus- tralia on their superior intelligence in all that ap- pertains to a " life in the woods," hut they would do well to take a lesson from the habits of tem- perance and industry which distinguish the German emigrants who have settled in the latter colony. Even the town of Adelaide, with all the inherent faults of its inhabitants, such as their in- activity and indolence, which the enterprising spi- rits of Port Phillip divide, affords no such picture of demoralization. The Squatters' Act,continues to excite a good deal of interest, and the'papers...

SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 5 July 1839

SYDNEY. We have received Sydney papers to the 5th of June. They do not contain any matter of much interest. The Governor has issued a pro- clamation, very strongly urging the necessity of avoiding all conflicts with the natives, as in every such case the law will be most rigorously enforced. In reference to this point, His Excel lency has received express instructions from home, as the following extract will show : " His Excellency deems the present a proper occa- sion to notify lo the public, that he has received dis- tinct instructions from Her Majesty's Government, to cause an inquest or inquiry to be instituted in every case whereiu any of the aboriginal inhabitants may have come to a violent death in consequence of a collision with white men ; and that His Excellency is determined to make no distinction in such cases, whether the aggressors or parties injured be of one or the other race or colour, but to bring all, as far as may be in his power, to equal and indiscriminate just...

JAMAICA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 5 July 1839

JAMAICA. The usual formalities in swearing-in having been finished, the Provost Marshal General ap- peared at the bar, and in Her Majesty's name summoned the House over to the Council Cham- ber, when his Excellency, the Governor, delivered the following speech. Gentlemen of the Council, Mr. Speaker, and Gentle- men of the House of Assembly,-I very much regret having been compelled to com ene this new General Assembly, at a season when absence from your homes may be attended with personal inconvenience ; but a sense of the difficulties likely to ensue from the want of those important laws, now about lo expire, would not permit me to forego the earliest opportunity of appealing to you for their renewal ; and I feel assured your zeal for the public service will supersede all other considerations. Mr. Speaker, smi Gentlemen of the House of Asum» ii/y,-In providing for the financial exigencies of the island, I hope you will be able to meet the claims of the public creditor, with a due re...

SIR, In consequence of the advertisement, signed " Joseph Allport," which lins appeared in the Review of last week, I beg to inform the public, through the medium of vour journal, that having been precluded at the late trial, from proving the truth of my iurmcr statement relative to Lot thirty-two, (the defendant not having attempted to justify,) it is my intention to publish the whole of the circum- stances relative to " Belvidere," and Lot thirty-two, from the official documents in my possession. Several of my friends hnwng expressed surprise that I should have had recourse to law-, I think it necessary to state, that I peremptorily refused to accede to Mr. Moore's desire that I should do so, conveyed to mc through the Government-an extract from Mr. Alfred Stephen's opinion was also forwarded to mc through the Government, pointing out that it was for a defendant to plead the " truth,"-a plaintiff not having the power to do so, and there...

MR. G. M. STEPHEN AND MURRAY'S REVIEW. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 5 July 1839

MR. G. M. STEPHEN AND MURRAY'S REVIEW. A letter has appeared in the South Australian Gazette, bearing the signature of Mr. Stephen, in, answer to certain high flown statements made by our contemporary of the Review, wjth refe- rence to the value of the Milner Estate. Mr. Stephen had written to his brother here, that he liad been offered ten pounds an acre, by Mr. Strangways, for any part of the property in ques- tion. By a very easy procesa of arithmetic, in, which our 'contemporary excels, as much as he does in describing the changes of the beavens the «taking state of the barometer, and the at-I mospheric appearances about the top of Mount Wellington, with a copious admixture of oxygen and hydrogen-the four thousand acres are instant "Iji-madc worth forty thousand pounds ! But if an example were wanting wherewith to defeat the purpose of the South Australian Gazette, and which at the same time might afford an additional proof of the Review's intimate acquaintance with the Book of ...

We per- ceive a feeler put forward in a contemporary, in the shape of a few sentences strung together with a little more attention to arrangement of ideas, than is generally to be found in the motley lucubrations which appear in the same journal, and which we might condescend to be grateful for, without questioning the giver, were it not for the violent effort to be facetious, which winds up the solemn catastrophe.

SYDNEY. I The Session of tho Legislativo Council was opened on the 11th with a speech from His Excellency Sir G. Gipps. His Excellency con- gratulates the colony on the improved prospects that are now opened by the termination of the late calamitous drought. The measures adopted to meet the contingency, and procure a supply of grain, are next adverted to. His Excellency communicates the approval of the Secretary of State to the admission of strangers to the debates in the Legislative Council, and submits a despatch to that effect, and another expressive of Her Ma- jesty's determination to appoint a British cowal at New Zealand, who will be sent out from home, so that the present resident, Mr. Busby, will be superseded ; but he is recommended to His Ex- cellency's consideration for employment A com- mittee is recommended to be appointed to inquire into the effects of immigration during the last year.

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 5 July 1839

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. A hostile meeting took place at Wormwood Scrubbs, between Captain the Hon. Cecil Forester and Captain W. E. Hanmer, both of the Blues. The former was attended by Captain the Hon. J. W.   B. Macdonald, of the Life Guards, and the latter by   Lieutenant Conroy. Three shots were exchanged without effect, when the seconds would not per- mit the affair to proceed further. The meeting, we understand, had become unavoidable, in con- sequence of an altercation between the princi- ples, growing out of a difference in politics. The new Persian envoy, Hussein Pacha, who is now en route to town from Marasilles, is said   to be the bearer of fifty Cashmere shawls of ex- quisite workmanship, as a present from the Shah to Queen Victoria. The Moniteur of Thursday contains the dis- missal of M. Persil, the President of the Mint at Paris. This office is worth 30,000 francs a-year, and the cause of M. Persils dismissal is owing to his having int...
