POLICE. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 5 March 1841

POLICE. - 1 John Carter, ticket-of-leave, fully committed for tritl on a charge of stealing pigs from Mr. Jacomb, of Ne* Town. There were six persons under examination at first, but the charge appeared to rest entirely on the prisoner, the other parties being retained as witnesses on the trial. Mary Hampton, assigned to Captain Briggs, charged by her muster with stealing sundry articles of furniture and plate; a large quantity of domestic articles were produced together with sundry ounces of plate; it appeared she had been robbing her master by wholesale ; committed for trial. James Taylor charged with stealing two dollars, pro« perty of Mr. Cohen ; discharged, prosecutor not wishing lo press the case.

THE CABINET. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 9 March 1841

THE CABINET. To what amazing heights of piety may some be thought amount, raised on the wings of flaming zeal, and distinguished by uncommon prcciscncss and severity about little things, who all the while, perhaps, cannot govern one passion, and appesr yet ignorant of, and slivcs to, their darling iniquity I Through an ignorance of themselves, they misapply their zeal, and mis- place their self-denial, and by that means blemish their elia racters with a visible inconsistency.-Mason. Be virtue first thy care, thy wish thy aim ; *S% Her rules thy standard, her applause thy fame ; , 4 .\Si To her thy steps let fair discretion lead ; f* Let truth inspire thy thought and crown thy deed ; f" Let sage experience guide thy hand and voice ; lie slow to choose, but constant in thy choice ; To mercy's dictates open all thy breast ; Be good, and Heaven will teach thec to be blest 1 Bisuor. He that can apprehend and consider vice with all her baits and seeming pleasures, and yet abstain, and yet...

IMPERIAL EDICT. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 9 March 1841

IMPERIAL EDICT. On the 4th October, was received (al the office of the lioppo) from the governor, a communication as follows: On the 1st of October (flth day of the 9th month) I re- ceived a despatch from the general council, in these words. On the 17th September (22d day of the 8th month,) ail im- perial edict was received. Whereas the English at the harbour of Tcentsin did first present a communication most manifestly civil and re- spectful, and earnestly requesting an extension of favour, it seemed right to commaud Kesh^n pointedly and ear- nestly to instruct and order that they should not be al- lowed to create confusion and disorder, but only permitted to proceed to Canton to seek entrance. So that if indeed they exhibit sincerity, the said minister and his colleagues certainly would in their behalf memorialise, begging for favour. Now, according to Keshen's memorial, the said foreign, crs have listened to and received his instructions and orders, and have already got under wei...

TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 9 March 1841

TO CORRESPONDENTS. 'Tiser »till meditates the Swamp, and invokes in hi» aid the witless buffooneries of his correspondent, " Castigator," whose jokes are far more melancholy efforts of decayed mirth than Gregory Griffin'*. 'Tiser says he has it under our own hand that /te has clearly established his claim to the Swamp. We hove certainly said that the pamphlet published upon this case, and the other documents connected with it, would seem to estaWsh his claim clearly enough, but u-e hate nevertheless since advised 'Tiser to burn all the di¡cu wents and never tliink of it again, for the question hud been virtually decided against him by the Home Government. What we complain of is. an effort to prejudice the property of others by means of a news- paper paragraph ; and us it is based on self-interest, it should lie met in the same way. The courts of law are open to him ; let him go there ; but where the property of others is at stake, do not let him in an undue and improper manner attem...

FINANCIAL CRISIS OF THE PROVINCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 9 March 1841

FINANCIAL CRISIS OF THE PROVINCE. Amid the varions political rumours of the week, there appears to be none more worthy of credit than that the re- moval of Colonel Gawler from the government of the colony is determined upon. It is a singular circumstance that the late arrivals from England brought no despatches, nor any communication whatever.either from theColonial oflice.or from the commis- sioners, to Governor Gawler. This may be accounted for by the fact that the official rule is to suspend all corres- pondence with the Governor, whose conduct is under dis- cussion, or whose removal is contemplated. The next arrival will probably bring the determination of the Homo Government on the subject. In the meantime, we think proper to mention that at the latest date, it was confidently anticipated by the friends of South Australia that the treasury would furnish a grant sufficient to meet Colonel Gawier's unauthorised drafts on the commissioner. Still no decision has been come to on the...

GULF OF PECHELE. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 9 March 1841

GULF OF PÉCHELE. We now proceed to digest such further information as has reached us by various channels respecting the proceedings of H. M. squadron in the Gulf of Péchele. H. M. ships Wellesley, Blonde, Volage, Modeste, and Pyladcs, with the H. Co's steamer Madagascar, and two armed transports, the Ernaad and David Malcolm, carrying coal for the use of the steamer, in company, sailed from Chusan on the 30th July. They lost sight of the coast until off the promontory of the province of Shantung-of which Confucius was a native-and Alcesle islands. The entrance of the Gulf of Péchele is studded with a number of islands, th« shores of which are generally bold, rocky, and very picturesque. On the 8lh of August they arrived off the mouth of the Peiho river, which was the appointed rendezvous. The Gulf is very shallow, and the Wellesley drawing i'¿\ feet water, could not go closer tliun within eight or ten miles of the shore. The Modeste and the Volage formed the inshore squadron ; the o...

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 9 March 1841

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. WE iiipert the following account of the inquisition held upon a Mr. Huntly Macpherson, together with, as appears to us, some very proper comments of the Register in reference to this affair. The Government hut was burnt down, and Mr. Macpherson was one of the parties suspected of being implicated in the act of incendiarism ; but pending the enquiry upon the charge, a commission is sued out, to discover whether he be of sane mind or not ! The proceeding is in itself an outrage upon justice, even were there suffi- cient grounds for believing the man to be decidedly insane : but it is far wone when we look to the report of the inquisition, and find that six men out of twelve upon that jury could be brought to declare a man a lunatic upon the evidence adduced. We are told by one of the doctors, as proofs, but very odd ones, of Mr. Macpherson'« insanity, that "he was very fond of dressing himself in other people's clothes, riding their horses," &c, which in most ...

CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 9 March 1841

CHINA. WE briefly alluded in our last number to the receipt of mercantile letters from Macao. We now «rive them. They are from the respectable house of Jardin, Matheson and Co., and will be perused with in- terest : . * . .-Notwithstanding the apprehensions expressed in our last general advice of 20th August, we have the pleasure to announce the uninterrupted continuance of tranquillity here since that date. The barrier remained un- occupied fur many days after Captain Smith dislodged the Chinese soldiers, and it is only lately that the small guard usual in times of peace has returned to it. There is an extensive Chinese encampment on the heights two or three miles beyond, with the professed intention, however, of acting merely ou the defensive. The Portuguese are never- theless constantly on the watch, the streets being patrolled every night by armed parties of the inhabitants to guard against any attack on the neutrality of the place, for the purpose of molesting the English.

FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 9 March 1841

FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. The Toulonnaii says that never, since the occupation of Algeria, have the French troops been attacked with more roolness and perseverance by the Arabs than during the march of General Changarnicr's column lo Milianali and tack. The enemy was continually close round the rear °f'he column ín a body of 9,001) Kabyles, and from 7,000 to 8,100 horsemen, and the French bad continually to fight wltnu«)arOTfi*/aac*M, that ii, with aword and bayonet. At time», |t add», the Arabs and the French rear-guard were all mixed up together in confusion, lighting hand to hand. The garrison of Milianah,lhis journal also states, had only ISO meu capable of doing duty when the column arrived. All (he regular battalions of A lid el-Kader's own division had taken upa position on the Cul deTeniuh, in order to hinder the French from re- victualling that place, and it wns thought that it would require all the disposable forces of the governor-general to enible them to get a convoy to tha...

THE COURIER. Stvenuf. ti Çrogptrr. HOBART TOWN, TUESDAY. MARCH WH have received by the Laura, Captain Day, English intelligence to the 18th of November. The French ministry, with Soult at their hoad, are firm in the maintenance of peace, and the war cry seems to have nearly, if not altogether, subsided. The French Chambers have declared in favour of peace by a considerable majority, and Thiers begins to find out that the King's name, or in other words the patronage that attaches to it, is as a tower of strength to the waverers, and that those upon whom he counted when in office for support, have become indifferent to him now that he is out. In the meantime the ques- tion has been so exhausteJ in the public journals, that people are wearied with it, and even the patience of John Bull has been worn out by Gillie gasconade, for we find him telling the French to " leave off their grimaces and begin." Souli, on assuming the War department, has ad- dressed the army in a brief but expressi...

ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. The lines and ground plans of the intended forti- fications of Paris," says the Moniteur, " are continu- ing- to be laid down with all due expedition. The authorities are also engaged in making out details of I the artillery and other materiel of defence, in order \ that the whole, together with the magazines for receiving powder and projectiles, may be ready with as little delay as possible. With these views, con- ferences have been held, and will bo incessantly repeated, between General Count d'Anthouard, pre- j sident of the artillery committee, and General Vis- ' count Dode de la Brunerie, president of the commit- tee of fortifications ; and numerous committees of | officers of the artillery and engineers are appointed to lay down the ? bases of this great undertaking.''

CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 9 March 1841

CHINA. WE take the following summary of Chinese intelli- gence from the Adelaide Chronicle of the 17th of February, to which we have added whatever appeared to us of interest out of the few Canton papers we our- selves have received : - NEWS FROM CHINA The arrival of the lung William last Wednesday has put us in possession of news from Chusan to the 24th October, and from Canton to the 4lh November. The Kitesl dates from China before were the 8lh September, so that we have now to give a summary of the proceedings from that time till November. It will be remembered that the admiral,accompanied by Captain Elliot, sailed on the 29th July for the Gulf of Pe-chi-le, within a short distance of which lies the impe- rial city of Pekin. The admiral's ship Wellesley was ac- companied by four frigates, two steamers, and two trans- ports. On the 10th August, they anchored off' Hie mouth «if the Peilin, on the bauks of which stands Pekin, where Lord Pal incision's despatch to the emperor was sen...
