MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 31 July 1840

MISCELLANEOUS. Will of Shaksprarr, Milton, and Napoleon.-The lait wills and testaments of these three great men mc tied up in one ?.beet of foolscip, and may be seen nt Doctors' Commons In the will of the bald of Avon is an inter- lineation in his own hand-writing, ' I give unto my wifo my brown best bed with the furniture.' It is proved by William Buvde, 22d of July, ICIO. The will of the minstrel of Paradise is a nuncupative one taken by his daughter, (he great poet being blind. The will of Napo- leon is signed in a bold style of writing; the codicil, on the contrary, written shortly befoic his death, exhibits the then weak stale of his body. Ft anl.ncss.-The most agreeable of all companions is a simple, frank man, v. iihout any high pretensions to an oppressive greatness ; one who loves life, and understands the use of it ; obliging, alike at all hours ; above all, of a golden temper, and steadfast as an anchor. For suth a one we gladly c\changc the greatest genius, the mostbiill...

The Courier. THURSDAY EVENING, JULY 30, 1840. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 31 July 1840

Coe Courier» THURSDAY EVENING, JULY 30,1840. . .?-«.?-???-. ,, AH extraordinary article in last week's Review having- escaped our observation, we think it right to revert to it, in order that such a gem in print may not lose in general estimation, from the fact of its being set in the columns of a journal no- torious for its dealings in pinchbeck, but that it may be viewed apart from the vulgar prejudice that nothing good can come out of its peculiar locale, and be weighed and judged of according to its intrinsic merits, without reference to the mode or means by which it has been brought to light-it being an unreasonable supposition 'to presume that a political " smasher" must always, of necessity, deal in base coin. ; The article to which we allude professes tojbe in answer to some silly effusion in the Colonial Times, referring to the offer by Lord John Russell, of what the Times, or the leaden journal, calls the Clerkship to the Board of Commis- sioners, which it is further state...

SPIRIT OF THE PUBLIC JOURNALS. THE GOVERNMENT HAS NO POWER. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 31 July 1840

SPIRIT OF THE PUBLIC JOURNALS. I THE GOVRRNMCNT MAS NO POWHR. ¡ Church of England Quarterly Review.--Has the Downing-street Club tiny clnim upon the name of a government in (lie management of our fin ii n ces ? The mere suggestion of such an idea, is enough lo raise the uuextinguishable laughter of gods and men. Never surely since exchequers were created was there such a chancellor ¡is Lord Monteagle-invested with (he rohe3 of the peerage for the same reason that Sir De Lacy Evans wns invested willi Hie collar of the Bath-because he covered himself and his oliice willi ridicule and disgrace.

SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 31 July 1840

SYDNEY. Our latest Sydney papers are to the 19th in- stant. The most important intelligence is the continued decline in the wheat market, which grain has now fallen to nine shillings and A-.'.V pence per bushel. The two-pound loaf is eight pence, but it is expected to be sixpence in another week. The editor of the Sydney Gazelle, Mr. George William Robertson, has been sentenced to pay a fine of £200 to the Queen, and to be imprisoned for twelve months, for a libel on Captain Nias, of IL M. S. Herald. War tcith France.-The question was put by an honor- able member of Council, in the course of yesterday's pro cmlings, whether there were any apparent chances of war between France and Great lirilain as to New Zealand To this His Excellency made answer, that he really did not think there was ; as, in the first place, the two nations «ore on the best possible terms at home, and this Company, «liitli «as said to be coming out from France, he had every reason to believe «as no more in fact ...

THIS MORNING'S POST. (From the Launceston Advertiser.) STRANDING OF THE BARK "OCEAN QUEEN," AND TOTAL   WRECK OF THE " CITY OF EDINBURGH." As is always the case when events of this sort occur, numerous reports are in circulation ; we think, however, we may vouch for the truth ol' the following account of this unfortunate occurrence, having spared no enquiry calculated to elicit the truth, carefully abstaining from stating anything admitting of a doubt.   The Ocean Queen left London on the 6th March, arrived at the Cape on the 28th ¡May, and sighted the heads of the River Tamar about the 8th July, after a passage of rather more than four months. About 8 o'clock in the evening of that day, the wind increased to such a degree that it was found impossible to reach the heads that night, the captain accordingly put about, in- tending to stand in the next morning, if the wind abated. For three successive days it blew a perfect hurricane, such   as sel...

The Courier. FRIDAY EVENING, JULY 31, 1840. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 31 July 1840

===== ©!# Cutt?**?«. ... - FRIDAY EVENING, JULY 31, 1840. WE have received a pamphlet from the pen of Mr. David Burn, entitled, "A VINDICATION OF VAN DIEMEN'S LAND," dedicated to the people of Tasmania, as " conveying the bane and (honestly attempted) antidote," but of what species of poison Mr. David Burn maketh no mention, while he very modestly encloses his honest attempt within brackets, as if doubtful of the success that might attend his efforts, but at all events anxious to show us that if his exertions have failed to turn the strong current of popular pre- judice, his intentions have been sincere in attempt- ing to resist it. Of this there can be no doubt. Mr. Burn has launched his barque upon the waters ; he has struggled manfully against " a sea of troubles ;" he bas exclaimed against those who, seized with malignant frenzy, have opened the floodgates to let in the full tide of calumny upon us, that we might be foi* ever sunk and overwhelmed in ignominy-he has called to our...
