TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 29 May 1840

TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. Sir,-Having perceived a paragraph in the Colonial Times of the Ililli instant, commenting upon the Military Theatre in this Garrison, opened by the 51st light infantry, expressly for the amusement of the military and their friends, in which the editor of the Colonial Times insinuates that the Military Theatre ought to be shut up whilst the Town Theatre is open, and also that he imagined, when it wits first opened, that it was to be purely private,-I beg to remark, that it is quite ridiculous for him to think it is any- thing else but private, and only for the amusement of the military and their friends. It is far from the wish of the military amateurs to do anything that would injure the interests of the Town Theatre, for in the first instance the Military Theatre was open long before Mrs. Clarke thought of opening the Town Theatre, and the Wednesday nights were fixed by the military amateurs for their performances. As soon as the Town Theatre opened it...

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. HIS EXCELLENCY'S RETURN FROM PORT LINCOLN. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 29 May 1840

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. nts excellency's iirtuiin mow port lincoln, I On Wednesday morning last, at two o'clock, a. m., the brig Porter arrived from Port Lincoln, at Hold- fast Buy, briugiug His Excellency, family, and suite. His Excellency, we understand, left Port Lincoln on Monday, at ten o'clock, p. m., on which occasion a salute was lired, and the shore was crowded with nearly the whole of the population, who had assem- bled to witness his departure. The Adelaide Volailleurs apprised of His Excel- lency's return, proceeded at an early hour on Wed- nesday morning to Holdfast Bay, and escorted His Excellency and family to town. From the information we have been enabled to gather, upon the subject of His Excellency's visit, it appears that the rumours.which were in circulation, as to the probability of His Excellency's report, with regard to Port Lincoln, being unfavourable, are entirely without foundation. His Excellency is re- ported to have said, that the harbour of Port Lincoln is ea...

Unit you are quite determined that the fannel s shall have fair play shown them, and more particularly by your ever and anon exposing the clumsy inventions and fallacious reports daily issued here and at Sydney in order lo mislead the producers of our first staple, I am sure that jon will allow me to point out a most sus- picions statement of this nature which appeared ia your last, copied from the Sydney Gazette, and which, if gulped down by our wheat-growers as readily as were those reports on the William's last arrival al Launceston, may have the same uilf.iir depreciating effect I allude to the Sydney story of the ships Van Buren and Tybec being ready in November last to receive their cargoes of flour in America, which would be ready for them so soo« as ilia frost broke up. \ Now, I leave it to any one ut all acquainted willi I the statistics o...

The Courier. FRIDAY EVENING. MAY 20, 1840. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 29 May 1840

fTi# C0ttrt$f% ' -?--' FRIDAY EVENING. May 20, 1840. We regret much that we have been unable to procure a report of Mr. Justice Montagu's speech in the case of Lord v. Maclaren, as the question it involves is one of great importance to the interests of this community. We request- ed a person- to furnish us with a full report, which he promised ; but not having any facility in reporting, and relying simply on the mechanical ! power of quick writing, he was altogether unable to follow Mr. Montagu, who speaks with a natural grace and an easy flow of eloquence, but in a style difficult for an inexperienced reporter to apprehend. With Sir John Pedder the re- verse is the case, for he dwells so long and hesitatingly^ over cverx_ senteur*!.that it wquiraa no exercise of "mind to. follow him through his decisions. We were the more anxious on ac- count of Mr. Montagu's decision, because we wished everything that could be said on what seemed to us and the community generally to be the paradox...

LOCAL.   Queen's Birthday. - The celebration of Her Majesty's Birthday took place on Wednesday last.   The day was ushered in with the usual joyful   demonstrations. The flag-staff at Battery Point   was covered with various flags, as was also that   at the military barracks, while the shipping in the   harbour vied with each other in a profuse distri-     bution of their colours. At 12 o'clock the   troops at the barracks fired a feu de joie, which   was responded to by a royal salute from the     battery, mingled with the firing of the ships   Gilbert Henderson and Hygeia in the harbour.     At 2 o'clock a numerous body of gentlemen   were in attendance at Government-House.

TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 29 May 1840

TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. Sin, The correspondence of the domestic chaplain to the Archbishop of Dublin and Major Macarthur, published in your paper of last week, induces me to offer a remark or ttvu. To an impartial mind the perusal of these letters brings conviction of an ub sence of candour and justice, on the part of the pre. late und his chaplain ; and the spirited and talented reply of the Major, and the references therein made, inconlestably prove the justice of the cau->e he ad- vocates. To him I consider that both colonies are deeply indebted. But I beg to submit an observation or two on the domestic chaplain's defence of the Archbishop. If I read correctly, it is fully acknow- ledged that the opinions of that prelate respecting the free inhabitants of these colonies, are derived exclusively from an inquiry into the condition of the convicts; vi«.-the Transportation Committees of the House of Commons, and from the " cheap pamphlet." I understand uko that implicit fait...
