TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 2 March 1841
TO CORRESPONDENTS. We really cannot condescend to notice 'Tiser and the buffoonery of his correspondents. The name Castigator amuses us, being on the lucus a non lucendo principle of derivation, the self-dubbed appellation of one who has been obviously well whipped by us, and who calls himself a flagellator, because he has been well flagellated. At to 'Tiser or 'Tiserling, if is really so melan- choly, so forlorn a rag, as to deserve no serious notice at our hands. We noticed the proprietor as chairman of a public meeting and a nutgistrate of the colony, not as part and parcel of 'Tiser. Heaven forefcnd that we should think of identify, ing the sensible portion of the community with the vagaries of that vapid journal ! We allow it the privilege of describing the proportions of a cabbage or a strawberry, but upon most other matters, to use a favourite figure of its own, which it puts in inverted^ commas, as if borrowed from some author, as a splendid effusion, but which, as its reade...

THE COURIER. Strenue et Prospere. HOBART TOWN, TUESDAY, MARCH 2. WE have received English intelligence to the 1st of November, from which we learn that the French minis- try was broken up owing to the disunion between Louis Philippe and M. Thiers. The ministry had, it is stated, prepared rather a moderate manifesto for the opening of the Chambers, but the King dreaded the influence of M. Thiers, and began to insist upon con- ditions, whereupon that gentleman resigned. Thiers calculates, that any ministry succeeding ) him will have to endure the odium of the nation, and be obliged to succumb to the indignation of the Chambers, when he and his friends will come in upon their own terms, and coerce the King to de- clare war. Louis Philippe had not succeeded, how. ever, in forming an administration. It is said that he sent for the Duke de Brogue, adding that he relied upon Soult and Guizot; but the Duke, who still maintained 6rm to his resolution of refusing office, suggested many not im...

UNION CLUB. &nbsp; ON Friday last a number of gentlemen, members of the Union Club and private friends of W. Bunster, Esq., &nbsp; entertained that gentleman to dinner, previously to his &nbsp; departure for England, in order to mark no less their personal regard for him, than the high esteem in which they hold his &nbsp; character as one of the oldest colonists of Van Diemen's Land.

Banker Mr. Ive's ... ... Filho da Puta. Jessie took the lead, and kept it well for the first two miles. Hollymount following close, Filho next, and Banker fourth. In the second miles, Filho pulled up well and looked like a winner, coming in only about a length behind Hollymount, whilst Jessie and Banker were losing ground rapidly. In the third mile Filho again pulled up on the heavy ground, but to no purpose, the " bullock," a» Hollymount is snrnamed, pushed ahead in the last half mile and won by about two lengths. When just inside the distance-post Banker bolted off the course, and threw his rider, who remounted, rode in, and thus sated his distance. The second heat...

MISCELLANEOUS. The Darhyiles.-Wednesday, at eleven o'clock, a nume- rous assemblage of the religious sect or body called " Darbyites," assembled at the Northumberland-rooms, Lower Cecil.street, for the purpose of discussing certain matters contained in the 2nd and 3rd chapter of Revela- tions. From inquiries made by our reporter at the meet- ing, we learn the principles upon which they profess to meet, are-" open communion," that is, a willingness to receive all those that they can acknowledge to be real Christians ; and " liberty of ministry," that is, a willing, ness to allow all whom they so acknowledge as Christians to speak, if they can speak to the profit of those assem- bled. The discussion wns principally carried on by Mr. Castels, of Cork; Mr. Thomas Mahon, of Ennis; Mr. Code, of Westport ; Mr. Tweedy, and Mr. Bellet, of | Dublin. The meeting was numerously attended, and comprised a great number of ladies. Among those pre. sent we observed Sir Richard O'Donnell, Bart., of I...

ANOTHER ATTEMPT TO ASSASSINATE THE KING OF THE FRENCH. At six o'clock on Thursday evening, as the royal carriage was leaving the Tuileries, returning to St. Cloud, Louis Philippe was fired at, but neither he nor any person of his suite was wounded. The assassin was instantly seized ; and the King, who displayed his accustomed coolness and courage, ordered the postillions not to stop, and continued his route to St. Cloud. The following is the official account from the Moni- teur Parisien, and the Messager of Thursday night : " Paris, October 15.

FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. Tbe Moniteur of Tuesday contains a royal ordinance jiroroguing the Chambers to the 5th of November.

His interview with Marshal Soult in the presence of his Majesty ended (we are informed) satisfactorily. An administration in which he would take the foreign department, and Marshal Soult the ministry of war (the other departments to be filled up pretty nearly as already announced,) would, it was ...

STATE OF TRADE. Manchester, Tuesday.-Notwithstanding the continued uncertainty in the foreign relations of the country, and the consequent pressure upon the money market, there wus a better feeling in our market on Tuesday than at any time during the preceding week, and considerably more busi- ness was done, but without any improvement in prices, cither of yarn or goods, with the exception of very good 27-inch printing cloth, which was in «rood demand, in consequence of the arrival, by the Great Western, of some orders from America. We are glad to learn by the accounts from all quarters of the United States, that business there is steadily and progressively improving, and that a fair amount of orders for manufactured goods may be shortly expected from thence-Manchester Guardian. , The depression we have had occasion to notice for the last few weeks continues.

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. SEIZURE OF A FRENCH VESSEL AT HOLDFAST BAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 5 March 1841
SOUTH AUSTRALIA. SEIZURE OF A FRENCH VESSEL *AT HOLDFA8T BAY. A circumstance which may lead to very serious consé- quences has just occurred. The French ship Ville de Bourdeaux urrived at Holdfast Bay a few days ago from Swan River or King George's Sound, on her way to Cir- cular Head. She called here to ascertain if stock could be purchased in the colony.

The facts of the case, so near as we can learn, are as follows :-The Collector of Customs having received in- formation that she was to carry the stock to King George's Sound, which, being a French vessel, she had no right to do, and also on suspicion of her having false papers, went on board on Saturday ...
