TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. Hobart Town, July 15, 1840. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 17 July 1840
TO THE EDITOR OF TUE COURIER. Hobart Town, July 15, 1840. SIR, Permit me to avail my Bel f of your columns, for the purpose of offering a few observations on the New C illege. When the funds for the support of an institution of any description arc obtained by either direct or indi- rect taxation of the whole community, it is only just that ull classes, all parties of thal community should as far as possible share, and share equally, in the benefits emanating therefrom. Assuming the correct- ness of this proposition, it is evident that the religion of his parents should prove no bar to the ndraission of any pupil to the New College. How then is this object, in my humble opinion, so just, so desirable, to be attained, without losing sight of the grand end of all education, lo produce not merely learned or even moral men, but religious ones. Willi out entering into discussion on the merits or demerits of any particular church or sect, I trust that all will agree with me, that this is t...

The Courier. THURSDAY EVENING, JULY 16, 1840. HOUSE OF LORDS. MONDAY, MARCH 2. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 17 July 1840
Cin Courier, r THURSDAY' EVENING, JULY 16,1840. HOUSE OF LORDS. MONDAY, MARCH 2. Saline» of the House.-The Duke of Wellington resumed his seat, and was warmly greeted upon his appearance.' He looked pale and thin, but in good spirits. Lord Lyndhurst presented petitions from London, Glasgow, &c, against the monopoly by Sicily of the trade in sulphur. The petitioners had ¿o' party feeling, but merely sought reparation for commercial losses. In consequence of modern che- mical discovery, sulphur was greatly iu demand in the English markets. In eleven years its importation increased from 4000 to 44009 tons. This vast quat). tity was imported from Sicily, where, since 1810, a treaty had existed for the protection of British pro- perty, and securing to British traders the rights of the most favoured nations, and, up to 1838, the trade was advantageously carried on there; howe\er, the French merchants, headed by a person named Philips, obtained a monopoly of the trade in sulphur.

The Courier. FRIDAY EVENING, JULY 17, 1840. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 17 July 1840
ggjig CúUVitV* FRIDAY EVENING, JULY 17, 1840. WE have received by the Francis, which has brought ti quantity of flour and wheat, English journals to the 20th March. The Privilege Question was still agitating Parliament, and no discussion of anv general interest appears to have taken place within either House, with the exception of a conversa- tion relative to the declaration of war against China, which was announced in the Times, but according to Lord John Russell it depended upon the Governor-General, although it does not appear that he is authorised to make any such declaration, without instructions from the Home Government, which he lias no doubt received. The cost of the expedition would fall upon the Home, and not the Indian Go- vernment. There is some little agitation in England, at the head of which is Mr. Sturge, in favour of the Chinese. Mr. Villiers's motion, relative to the Corn Laws, was fixed for the 29th. A grand dinner had been given to Mr. Byng, the member for Middle...
COLONIAL BANK. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 17 July 1840
COLONIAL BANK. A general meeting of the shareholders of this Bank, which has so suddenly started into existence, was held at Mr. Macmichael's Auction Mart, on Saturday, the 11th instant, for the purpose of nominating the Committee of Management, appointing a provisional Solicitor to prepare the Deed of Settlement, and taking into consideration the propriety of extending the capital, with the view to meet the numerous demands of those persons who, in conse- quence of the share-list having been filled up in so brief a period, were precluded from joining the Company. The utmost anxiety seemed to prevail on the subject of ex- tension of shares, and although the day was most unpro- &nbsp; pitious, and the rain and the snow relieved one another in ungrateful vicissitudes without intermission during the whole of the day, yet such was the intense interest ex- cited, that the large room was completely filled, and active agitators were seen canvassing their neighbours in every directi...

&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; THIS MORNING'S POST. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; (From the Launceston Advertiser.) &nbsp; &nbsp; We understand that effective measures have been taken to establish a Cemetery, on a large scale. The projectors do not propose to offer a pecuniary specu- lation ; the parties who may subscribe for shares will do so on public grounds, as they will not be allowed to realise more than bank interest; and when the shares are redeemed by the trustees, the ground will be public property, subject only to charges necessary to keep it in order. No sect will possess any exclu- sive privileges, and the appointment of funeral rites will be left entirely to the friends of the dead. It is designed to offer a last resting-place to persons of every faith and nation. We are glad to find that the different persuasions concur in an object of such public utility ; and great credit is due to Mr. Buttou for his persev...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. Sla- in tile Morning Post of the 21st of February, I find the following report of a cnse tried in the Court of Queen's Bench, Dublin, before Mr. Justice Crampton, the Re- porter prolesses to give it to the English public on account of its peculiarly Hibcrni in character, l'o that distinction it is undoubtidlv not entitled, as far as the dialogue ot the agents is concerned ; but it has another merit m my eyes, and that is, the common sense by which the decision of the judge appears to have been guided.
