Flour.-The Indus has brought upwards of one hundred tons of Indian flour, which was offered in the market yesterday at £45 per ton. Our Van Die men's Land neighbours had better be cautious. They arc overdoing the thing at present, thinking they have the ball at their feet ; but they are very much mistaken, as the result of a few months will show. The present importation from India is only a commencement. Before many months elapse we shall have several cargoes of wheat and flour, and our neighbours will then have cause to regret thal they ke...

THE SHERIFF'S TEAR. Air—"THE SOLDIER'S TEAR." [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 26 June 1840
THE SHERIFF'S TEAR. I Air-" The Sor.niEii's Tear." I "Mr. Sheriff Whcclton (in tho Court of Queen's lîencli) appeared much affected by the novelty of his situation, and for some minutes shed tears."-Morning Herald of Tuesday. Upon his heel he turned, to take a last sad st.trc, At the lobby and the Commons' House, and the Speak- er's high back'd chair ; He'd listened to a speech thence ungracious to his car, And the Sheriff looked upon his chain, and wiped away a tenr. Amidst that crowded court, n judge sat in his gown, He wore above a powdered wig, which shifted up and down, He gave the Sheriff n nod, a nod which made bim queer, But lie bowed to thank him for all that, mid he wiped away a tear. Ile turned to seek his cell, Oh 1 do not call him goose. For right and light was the Sheriff's heart, though tears would fuin break loose : Go watch the turtle soup, or turbot's gay career, De sure the bund most nimble there has wiped away a tear.
UNION CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 26 June 1840
UNION CLUB. His Excellency Sir John Franklin honoured the members of the Union Club with his company to dinner on Tuesday last. The Club-house was illuminated for the occasion, and V and A were transparent on each side of the crown. Lieutenant Colonel F.lliott and Captain Forster were specially invited, and about sixty gentlemen sat down to dinner. The fine band of the 51st regiment was in attendance, and played several delightful and appropriate airs during the evening. Mr. Mac Lachlan took the chair, and the Attorney-General acted as Vice. On the cloth being removed the Chairman called for a bumper toast. He said every man whom he addressed was at all times glad to drink the toast he was about to give, but more particularly was he sure of their responding to it upon the present occasion with increased enthusiasm, when they recollected a recent interesting event, the intelligence of which had only just reached the colony, (hear, hear,) and which enabled him to perform the grateful ...

WEEKLY RET[?]OSPECT OF THE MONEY MARKET. Friday, February 14, 1840. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 26 June 1840
I WEEKLY RETEOSrECT OF THE MONEY MARKET. ' I Friday, February 14,1840.1 The business of the London mercantile markets has been on a moderate scale this week, and roost articles of merchandize remain without alteration in price ; this ia likely to be the ense till some improvement commence in the exports. The reduction noticed in the value of tea for some time past has now been cheeked by the intelligence of the recent rupture with the Chinese, and an advance has occurred to the ex tent of fivepnnce per pound. Great confidence exists among holders of a further rise soon taking place, and, under present circumstances, when the adjust- ment of the dispute with the Chinese seems more than ever removed, it is more thau probable that these an- ticipations will be realised. We have no great alter- ation lo notice in the state of the Manchester and other provincial markets, which remain flat, but with little depreciation iii prices. The corn trade still continues in a sluggish state. The we...

' Cïn Courier. I ' THURSDAY EVENING, Jon« 25,1840. f From the Atlas, 6th February.) Th* sketch of Ghizni, which Is presented to the reader, is the first attempt in Europe to re . present that hitherto impregnable fortress : it is from a sketch made on the spot by an officer of the scientific department of the army, and tallies exactly with the plans given in the Bombay Times of September 21, from equally authentic sources. To breachthe walls of this fortress was declared by the engineers to be impossible without a heavy bat- tery, and to shell it, with any hope of success, absurd, owing to the great extent of the place. It is sur rounded by substantial walls and bastions on all sides, and the defences had lately been put in complete order. It mounted nine guns, -besides innumerable wall pieces-a weapon almost un known in our service, but which, during this siege, was particularly troublesome-gingals, and matchlocks. On approaching the place our offi .xsers were astonished at the lof...
