PARLIAMENTARY PROCEEDINGS. OUTRAGE ON THE BRITISH FLAG. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 26 July 1839

PARLIAMENTARY PROCEEDINGS. OUTRAGE ON THE BRITISH FLAG. House of Lords, February 20.—In answer to a question from Lord Colville, relative to a recent outrage on the British flag at Vera Cruz, Lord Minto said, "It was undoubtedly true that a pilot was taken out of one of Her Majesty's pack- ets and placed on board a French corvette. When a knowledge of the circumstance was re- ceived in this country, his noble friend, the Se- cretary for the Foreign Department, was apprised of it, in order that a proper representation should be made to the government of France on the sub- ject. But before any steps could be taken on that point, government had two days ago received despatches from Sir J. Douglas, stating that when Admiral Baudin was apprised of the circum- stance, he had in a very courteous and handsome manner tendered the most full, ample, and satis- factory apology." Lord Colville said, " It was a most unprecedented thing to force a pilot from a neutral vessel in order that he might...

The Courier. THURSDAY EVENING, JULY 25, 1839. A NARRATIVE BY SIR F. B. HEAD, BARONET. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 26 July 1839

"Cl)e Courier* i THURSDAY EVENING,'JULY 25,1835. A NARRATIVE BY SIR F. B. HEAD, . BARONET. ' The History of the Cañados ¡a at this moment interesting at home. The problem is not un- interesting to many here-whether, where genius of a high order-descriptive powers almost un- equalled-directness of purpose and stern in- tegrity failed ; mere official dexterity-unexam- pled coolness, with " a desperate fidelity" to Downing-street instructions, will succeed. In this latter question, we, however, have not the slightest interest ; but it can hardly be doubted, that a man whose whole life has been devoted to the service of his country, in the administra- tion of various Governments, is far more likely to succeed than the lively and picturesque Ex Governor, whose very account of his appoint- ment to the Government of Upper Canada, in November, 180Ö, is thus graphically described : " It had blown almost a hurricane from the S.S.W. -the sheep iu Romney Marsh had huddled together in groups-the...

¡UNITED STATES.

The only news of any real interest and importance re- lates to the Boundary Question; and as the ori- gin and progress of this dispute cannot be gene- rally known to the inhabitants of the Australian colonies, we proceed to lay before our readers some few facts illustrative of the subject, which are collected from the communications of a Cana- dian settler, recently published in the 7tme*, and which have been well condensed by the Liverpool Standard, in the following remarks : " The Americans long since discoveicd the great and increasing value of the immense pine forests of Maine, and the facilities afforded by the noble rivers which inter- sect the country in every direction, for rafting timber to the navigable waters.

The late distress has been a bitter argu- ment against their continuance, and the present House of Commons being unwilling to remove the existing restrictions, the Ballot will now be looked forward to as a lever to accomplish this object. The reverend writer who has taken up the cudgels against the Ballot is unrivalled in his peculiar vein of ironical raillery ; but too fond of making points, he frequently pursues the phan- tom of his own imagination, while he forgets the substance before him, following, and fencing, and ...

a¡ SOUTH AUSTRALIA. - . . ,- ¿ We have received* Soutn Australian papers to the 6th of July-the last containing a full report of what passed in Court on Mr. Macdougall being called up for judgment for a libel on Mr. G..M. Stephen, the Colonial Secretary. Hi3 Honor, Mr.. Justice Cooper, whoso address in awarding t'.ie sentence of the Court we subjoin, seems to have been less infelicitous upon this oc- casion than bis previous' judicial and extra-judi- cial essays might have led us to expect. Still enough of the salt remains to preserve the spirit of his fonne.-reputation ; and we would only point to two passages -which we have marked in italics as specimens of his peculiar powers of ratiocina- tion. Several affidavits were handed up in respite of judgment, with a prayer on the part of Mr. Mann, who acted as counsel for the defendant, that the sentence might be deferred until the pending case of Mr. Stephen had been disposed of, the result of which might alter the nature of the senten...

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 2 August 1839

MISCELLANEOUS. Treatment of Tenants ia Ireland- A cause was tried, ,lhe other day, at the Longford Assizes, which elicited a detail of proceedings as monstrous and revolting as were ever disclosed in a court of justice. The action was an ejectment upon the title. The defendant, Itose Murphy, was a poor widow ; the plajntifli (to ennoble and sanctity * the suit) were the Viscount and Viscountess Lor ton. Tlie widow's title was this : she was administratrix of the property of her deceased husband, who held the lands in question under an assignment of a lease for eighty years, made in 1803, so that forty-four years of the interest held under the original conveyance were yet unexpired. It is needless to state further particulars, for the validity of the defendant's title was not so much as questioned I How, ' then, the reader will be curious to know, did the noble ¡and pious plaintiffs propose to maintain their case? ' Upon the strength of a mere written agreement to give up possession ...

Taking the ordinary Revenue, there is- an in« crease in the Customs, of nearly £5,000, which progressing in the same ratio, will make tie Government gainers of £20,000 a-year by tie discontinuance of Distillation.
