AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 19 March 1841
AMERICA. INTELLIGENCE from the United States is to the i lth November. The papers are almost exclusively filled with electioneering speeches. The contest between Van Buren and General Harrison, for the Presidency, had been unusually sharp, and terminated in the election of General Harrison by the largest majority ever known. The particulars of the contest was brought to Liverpool by the President steam-ship, which left New York on the 11th November, and ar- rived at Liverpool on the 28th, a few days before the Lady Raffles sailed. The rate of exchange on Eng- land was from 8£ to 9 percent; premium. Little bu- siness doing. Specie was in great demand for ex- port. The cotton market was inactive, and prices with a tendency to recede. It is expected now that the elections are over business will improve.

INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 19 March 1841
INDIA. OUR advices from India reach to the commence- ment of December. Dost Mahomet had surrendered, and it was exppcted that his two sons would follow his example, The war in Affghanistan may therefore be said to be at an end. Dost Mahomet rode direct from the field of battle and gave himself up. It was anticipated that our troops would be refused a passage through the Punjaub; but on the contrary, the reigning Prince, Shere Singh, has afforded them every assistance, and they passed the Sutledge near Ferozeporo over a fine bridge of boats. Kurruck Singh, the successor to the celebrated Runjeet Singh, had died rather suddenly, and, as was rumoured, from the effects of poison. His widow, attended by three handmaidens, mounted the funeral pile and was burned to ashes. Our readers will re- collect, that on the death of Runjeet Singh, a similar instance of self-sacrifice took place. In the midst of the solemnities attending the fune- ral of the late Rajah, his son and successor. Nao Neh...
SYDNEY PRESS. SPECIAL SURVEYS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 19 March 1841
SYDNEY PRESS. SPECIAL SURVEYS. We regret to have to announce that the Special Survey system, with all its disadvantages, is to be immediately intro- duced into this Colony. It maybe remembered, that when the newland regulations were under discussion in the Legislative Council, some of the members hinted at the probability of Special Surveys being introduced ; and in the course of the debate, the Governor distinctly denied that this would be the case. His words were, " I am glad, however, to find, that even by these regu- lations, neither the Slpecial Survey system ; nor the playing of dice for town allotments of South Australia, are to be intro- duced into this colony." Since that time, there have not been so far as we are aware, any new regulations promulgated by the Secretory of State, nor the Colonization Commission- ers ; and, therefore, it is clear, that His Excellency did not take the view of the regulations which the Commissioners intended they should bear, inasmuch as Specia...
REPORT ON EGYPT. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 19 March 1841
REPORT ON EGYPT. Bv Da. JOHN EOWRING. 1840. First let us observe of the Report that it comprises a large body of information, which we can but thus slightly advert to at present, concerning the popula- tion of Egypt, and in remark upon her agricultural and manufacturing productions, her revenues and ex- penditure, her commerce and commercial usages, the state of her legislation as respects persons and pro- perty, the progress made by her people in education, ?ind other general questions of a statistical character, in relation to the development of her resources. On these various important and interesting matters Doc- tor Bowring describes himself to have diligently sought instruction from every accessible source, and the re- port carries evidence of his having succeeded to a more satisfactory extent than commonly falls to the lot of Europeans. The general result or impression created is somewhat curious ; and this we shall state to the reader. Great, then, would seem to be the advan...
THE QUEEN'S ACCOUCHEMENT BIRTH OF THE PRINCESS ROYAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 19 March 1841
THE QUEEN'S ACCOUCHEMENT BIRTH OF THE PRINCESS ROYAL. The town was taken somewhat by surprise on Sa- turday, (Nov. 21), by the announcement that the Queen had given birth to a Princess/ For although the event was expected to occur shortly, the wise ia such matters had set it down for some days later. The ringing of belle, however, which spread from spire to spire, strengthened the report as it ran from mouth to mouth ; and at twenty-five minutes to three a royal salute from the Tower guns confirmed it. in the afternoon, the following official announcement^ was published in a London Gazette Extraordinary ; Buckingham Palace, 21s/ November, 1840.-This afternoon, st ten minutes before two, the Queen was happily delivered of » Princess. His Royal Highness Prince Albert, Her Roy»! Highness the Duchéis of Kent, several Lords of her Maje«tj'i Most Honourable Privy Council, and the Ladies of ber Ma- jesty's bedchamber, being present. This great and important news was immediately madeira to ...
NEW TOWN RACES. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 19 March 1841
NEW TOWN RACES. The races are generally the signal for the suspension of all business, commercial, political, and agricultural; and &nbsp; are hailed therefore with great joy, by all parties who look forward to them as a sort of break in the dull mono tony which for the greater part of the year distinguishes Hobart Town. In respect to rational amusement, were it not that the hopes of tie community are balanced between the Regatta and the Races, there would we believe, notwith- standing the nature of the atmosphere which endues us with such surprising animal spirits, giving us an elastic rebound of almost American power, so that insol- vency is treated as a mere temporary decadence of circum- stance - a fall of the leaf, which being done brown will come forth with fresh viridity next spring - were it not for these two interludes in our existence - even in spite of all the advantages which the climate can bestow - we are certainly convinced there would be much work for the Cor...
THE COURIER. Strcnue et [?]. HOBART TOWN, FRIDAY, MARCH 19. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 19 March 1841
THE COURIER. Strcnue et .prospere. HOBART TOWN. FRIDAY, MARCH 19. THE " Lady Raffles" prison ship has arrived. We announced some time since that Captain Montagu would return by this ship to Van Diemen's Land ; our political sages of print doubted it. In their ex- ceeding wisdom they imagined the announcement was made only that it should be unmade. We had no idea we were treading upon such false ground. If the sophistication of morale goes on at this rate, it will most assuredly antipodize us ia respect to reason as weil as situation on the globe. Nevertheless we are happy to inform our readers that Captain Montagu has arrived in the colony, and further still, that be is in good health. It has been asked by one of the prints of the day in what state will he find the colony ? Our answer is, that he will find it disenthralled from all fear of the base portion of the press, which is now prostrate and powerless. He will no longer find it a prey to un- principled jargon. He will see that ...
