ENGLISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 16 March 1841
ENGLISH EXTRACTS. Colonel Gawler, the Governor of South Australia, whose lavish expenditure has brought so much embarrassment on that colony, has been recalled ; and Captain Grey has been appointed as his successor. Captain Groy is favour- ably known to the public as an intelligent aud enterpris- ing discoverer in Australia ; and by eli accounts he is in every respect fitted for his new oflicc. It is currently reported that some of the protested South Australian bills are about to be sent out on their return to the colony, during the present week. To see govern- ment paper, however small in amount, thrown back upon their hands, may have an injurious effect ia Adelaide, shaking both public and private credit. The colouists, however, are mostly practical men, and they are no1 likely to be led away by their fears beyond the warranty of the acts. From the address of their Goveruor they will have learned, if they did not know it already, the progres? which the colony has made in spite of...
SPIRIT OF THE ENGLISH PRESS. THE SOULT AND GUIZOT CABINET—WAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 16 March 1841
SPIRIT OF THE ENGLISH PRESS. THE S0ULT AND GU1ZOT CABINET-WAR. MORNING CHRONICLE.-From the very first there were few difficulties, neither Marshal Soult nor M. Guizot making any, and the King not offering any opposition to their demand of continuing warlike preparations no less actively than M. Thiers. The determination of M. Thiers was to raise 150,000 men from the class of 1341, and at the same time to decree the prolongation of the period of service, so that the soldiers who might have quitted the army in 1841 should be still retained under arms. Soult and Guizot insist on doing, or having the faculty of doing the same thing. The King says he never resisted any wish of M. Thiers to accomplish this. All he objected to was the putting this foremost in the royal speech ; for the Chambers, being bound to reply, would feel it their duty to reply in a tone still more warlike, the tone of Parliament being always more warm and more devoid of diplomatic meekness than that of either minist...

SUPREME COURT-CIVIL SIDE. THURSDAY, MARCH li. Brodribb v. Henry. This action arose out of the same transaction as the last case reported, with a difference in the amount claimed, the present sum being about .£1,500.

THE COURIER. StrcHiie et prospere. HOBART TOWN, TUESDAY, MARCH 16. Br private Letter» from Calcutta, via Sydney, we learn that Lieutenant Colonel Dcare assumed the command of the Twenty-first Regiment at Dinapore, to which station the first division of the Regiment had been ordered previously to Colonel Deare's ar- rival.
