The Courier. THURSDAY EVENING, MAY 28, 1840. ENGLISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 29 May 1840
s^mmms^msWsmmmsmmsmmswÊsmsm (^ ,. .¿ :.,. ^. j) e ^ 0 u r i e r, THURSDAY EVENING, Mat 28, 1840. ENGLISH EferVAtíTS. It is said that the marriage of the Queen will be hurried on, in order to furnish an opportunity of granting an amnesty to the Chartist traitors. It is confidently asserted that the flag promotions on the Queen's marriage will include all the Captains of 1006-7, making about twenty-four additional flags to the active list. Friday night's Gazette announces the promotion of Lord Auckland to be Earl of Auckland, and Baron Eden, of Norwood, in the county of Surrey, and that Lieutenant General Sir John Keane has been raised to the peerage under the title of Baron Keane, of Ghuznee, in Afghan- istan, and Cappoquin, in the county of Waterford.

THIS MORNING'S POST. (From the Launceston Advertiser.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 29 May 1840
THIS MORNING'S POST. &nbsp; (From the Launceston Advertiser.) &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Chit- chat. -Among the rumours of the day from the other side, is one that the Colonial Treasurer has forfeited the friendship and alliance of the editor of the Review, and that in future his cause will be espoused by the True Colonist. Some little flirtation on the part of Mr. Gre- gory, with Mr. Robertson, is said to have occasioned the ire of the veteran of the press. A report was also current, &nbsp; that Mr. Driscoll, Manager of the Union Bank, had retired fr0m that office, and was expecting to receive a public appointment. Some persons went so far as to say that Mr. James Thomson bad declined the offer made to succeed Mr. Ronald Gunn, and that Mr. Driscoll was to have the vacancy. One or two marriages in the court circles were spoken of; and it was expected by the well- informed that they would come off shortly after the Queen's birthday. Auction Company. ...
NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 29 May 1840
NEW ZEALAND. We have received the first number of a New Zealand Gazette, published at Port Nicholson. The form of the government under which the colonists have bound themselves to live is given below, but whether the arrest of Captain Pearson can be defended or not, will be a question, wc suppose, for the lawyers of Sydney to decide. Colonel Wakefield is the President of the settle. ment, and we wish it every success, standing aloof as it does from the trammels of Captain Hobson's imposed government. In the meantime, they in- troduce with them the laws of England according to Blackstone, in so far as they are applicable to the condition and circumstances of the colony. The New Zealand Gazette is very creditably printed. TIIC provisional constitution. Wc, the undersigned, intending to inhabit the New Zealand Land Company's first and principal settle- ment, with the view to provide for the peace and order thereof, do hereby agree amongst ourselves, and pledge our honor to submit ourse...
TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 29 May 1840
I TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. \ Sin_ The great and increasing scarcity of labour in this colony threatens to be productive df consequences which may well excite general alarm throughout the community. At a time when the newly.developed resource« of a neighbouring colony are rapidly draining off our labourers, and the demand for our produce is becoming daily more urgent, what are the steps taken by Government to ob- viate the difficulties in which we have thus become in- volved ? Emigration has received a temporary check, and assignment is to be discontinued ! Without ques- tioning the policy of Sir John Franklin in recommend- ing the suspension of emigration, it is, I think, but too obvious that the first intimation from the Home Govern- ment of the approaching cessation of the assignment system, ought to have been followed by prompt and decisive measures for securing a supply of labour equal to that of which we must necessarily be deprived. As it is, the evil which was foreseen, ...

TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 5 June 1840
TO CORRESPONDENTS. We hate received a communication on the subject of the shameful state of the Bridgewater Ferry. We shall again direct attention to this subject. The boats, tee are informed, are moored on sand-banks all night, lest they should sink in deep water. In the morning hours are consumed in baling them out. What is the Government abouti Such apathy is disgraceful. We crossed the other day in a little boat, and had not the means of judging of the state of the punt, which tee were told had been rtpaired. Is this the repair 9 In answer to several inquiries on the suhject, we beg to state that Mr. R. Stewart is rot the author of Hobartia, but that he is of the " vom that's breathed in solitude."

SPORTING INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 5 June 1840
SPORTING INTELLIGENCE. Great Match to gallop forty miles in two hours.-This was one of the greatest equestrian feats ever witnessed and the backers of time were dropped in the hole to a very heavy tune. The undertaking was to perform in saddle, with a pony and mare, forty miles ia two hours, and cattle to be changed but once. Sunbury Common, the scene of many a spoiling victory, was the place selected. The first performer was a clipped pony of Mr. Watson's, a gentleman well known as a good judge. Vagabond is the name under which tbe pony is koowa, and, as far as apparent breed goes, we should not think him likely, at first sight, lo create any sensation ; he is about eight years'old, and stands 14 hands high. The mare, a grey, was a fine creature, with the points of a racer, and standing 15£ hands, and bíx yea.s' old. The pon« J only been destined, ia the first instance, to u, »S . n t ; but as heavy sums depended upon her doing e&lt;>. » «f is, io, and 20 miles, within t...
ENGLISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 5 June 1840
ENGLISH EXTRACTS. The Church of Scotland in a ferment. -Tlie members of the commission are bold men. They have suspended seven clergymen of Strathbogie presbytery for yielding obedience to a decree of the court of session ! The pro- ceedings arise out of the Marnoch case, of which the public have heard a good deal during the last two years. Mr. Edwards, who had acted for three years as assistant to the prior incum- bent, got a presentation at his death in 1837. He was vetoed by 261 persons out of a commu- nion roll of 300. The presbytery seem to have manoeuvred a good deal to avoid following out the veto law to its proper conclusion, by reject- ing the presentee. The cas? was carried first to the Synod of Moray, which instructed the pres- bytery to reject Mr. Edwards. But the presby- tery, instead of yielding obedience, carried the subject before the assembly of 1838 by com- plaint. The assembly confirmed the injunction of the synod; and the presbytery, thus con- strained, did at la...

INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 5 June 1840
INDIA. News from Calcutta, by way of Singapore, had reached South Australia to a later d&lt;Ue than any intelligence yet received, from which we learn that war against China had been deter- mined on by the Indian Government, and that already 5000 men had volunteered from different corps for the service. The 21st, so long sta- tioned here, were, it is said, much disappointed at not being allowed to volunteer. Vessels had been taken up at enormously high rates, and all was bustle for the Celestial Empire. It is pro- bable that the island of Formosa will be taken and the ports blockaded, by the ships of-war.
SUPREME COURT-CIVIL SITTINGS. SATURDAY, 16TH MAY. Sulton v. Reynolds. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 5 June 1840
SUPREME COURT-CIVIL SITTINGS. Saturday, 10TH May. Sutton v. Reynolds. In this case Mr. Boyce moved the Court that the defendant should be discharged forthwith out of the custody of the Sheriff of Van Diemen's Land, who had taken his body under a writ of attachment sued out by the plaintiff Mr. Sutton for a contempt of the Court, in having neglected to answer a bill in equity filed against the defendant by Mr. Sutton for certain costs alleged to be due to him from the estate of a party deceased. The grounds upon which the learned gentleman founded this application was an alleged irregularity in the proceedings ; inasmuch as the writ of attachment, under which the defendant was taken into custody, was not returnable upon any day certain, or at any given time. Mr. Boyce was pro- &nbsp; ceeding with his statement of the facts, when the Chief Justice put it to him, whether this ought not to have been a motion for a rule nisi in the first in- stance ? The learned counsel submitted...
