VAN DIEMEN'S LAND AUXILIARY BIBLE SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 12 June 1840

mmÊmÊiÊÊmÊÊaÊÊiÊÊmmmÊimmm VAN DIEMEN'S LAND AUXILIARY BIBLE SOCIETY. The Report of the Van Diemen's Land Aux- iliary Bible Society, which was read at the late meeting in Trinity Church, contains the fol- lowing remarks in reference to the 35th Report of the British and Foreign Bible Society. Its accounts on the whole arc of the most cheering and encouraging character.

The Courier. FRIDAY EVENING, June 12,1840. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 12 June 1840

C1,g <Cúutri$v* FRIDAY EVENING, June 12,1840. Thk grievances of Mr. Thomson and his com- peers have, it seems, not altogether vanished ; they will insist on labelling themselves with a pitt our sorrows and standing in the highways as victims of persecuted piety, with false patches and pretended ailments. Instead of casting the cloak off altogether which has so long served to cover their designs, but of late so miserably torn, that they were forced to beat a retreat for a pe- riod in order to consult whether it would not be better to retire from the public gaze until a new suit could be supplied out of the Archdeacon's wardrobe of intolerance, they have rather chosen to come forth in the same garments, making merits even of those identical patches, and hold- ing them up as so many rents which the envious Courier has made in their robes of purity. They may perhaps get a little credit from the weak or the wavering, or the dishonest, who have a natural sympathy with wrong, an...

Leeds Mercury.-We should delude our readers if we encouraged thom to believe that the trade of the country this winter would not be universally bad. It will be so. Every de- partment will suffer. The great cotton district is at this moment in severe distress ; the great woollen district is not much better : the cutlery of Sheffield, the lace and stocking manufac- turers of Nottingham, the hosiers of Leicester and Derby, fhe hardware manufacturers of Bir- mingham and Wolverhampton, the potters of Staffordshire, the cotton-spinners and weavers of Glasgow and Paisley, the linen weavers of Dundee, and the great trading communities of London, Liverpool, Bristol, Hull, and New- castle, are all labouring under a degree of stag- nation which will destroy the profits of* capital, and leave scores of thousands of workmen with- out work and bread.
