ENGLISH. TRANSPORTATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 20 October 1840
ENGLISH. TRANSPORTATION. Unless it is contended that a system of punishments can be dispensed with entirely-or that punishments are not to be ad- justed as nearly as possible to the degrees of crime-we cannot conceive how it should be proposed to abolish a description of punishment which has certainly something terrible and solemn about it, and which, whatever may be said, is felt as one of great and signal severity, without being liable to the sort of compassionate periodical agitation which could not fail to attend imprisonment for life on our own shores, and would excite hopes that the sentence could never be executed, as we believe it never would, and we are not certain it ever ought to be. But what will you do without some punishment to replace the ter rors of transportation ? The age is averse to all corporal punishment even to a degree of fastidiousness. There is no security that simple imprisonment can be enough protracted to be equally terrible ; and it is probable that if ...

COLONIAL PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 20 October 1840
COLONIAL PltlíSS: THE COUNCIL.-Tn consequence of the adjournment of the Council, nothing has been decided as to the Bothwell Church question, or the Road Act. The latter, it is understood, will be read a third time on the 31 st. The former ought never to be read again. It is one of those proceedings which tend to- bring into disrepute, every- thing like religion. The Government should have said : " Gentlemen of the Scotch Church, we are glad to observe so great a desire expressed on your part, to maintain a minister, and a respectable place of worship, after the fashion of your faith and country. We have no doubt but Ihut the property in this particular church (Bothwell) is more justly vested in the Episcopalian than in the Presbyterian interests ; but this point we give up, in order that you may have afforded to you by the Government, every facility for religious instruction, and also in order -to avoid the possibility of the two churches being brought before the world in collision...

THE COURIER. fttrçnuc et Çrogprre. HOBART TOWN, TUESDAY, OCTOBER 20. MR. WOOD, in his letter to us of last week, lias overlooked one important fact which we have over nnd over again endeavoured to impress upon his at- tention, as decisive of the question at issue, namely, that the power of the Lieutenant-Governor was exercised in .the case of Woolley, not against the opinion of the Bench-which tried and acquitted the man, as it then seemed, on the score of there not being legal evidence sufficient to establish his guilt, at the same time that there existed a moral certainty of his having acted from malicious motives-but be- cause the Police Magistrate apparently acquiesced in the inferences and statements contained in Mr. O'Connor's letter, fcyvteturning it without other com- ment than the evidejftè adduced upon the trial, whereby the matter was leftTto the discretion of the Lieu- tenant-Governor, who, upon a full review of the case, was of opinion that n* man was guilty, and senten...
SANDWICH ISLANDS. From the Honolulu "Polynesian" Weekly Newspaper, 4th to 25th July. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 23 October 1840
SANDWICH ISLANDS. From the Honolulu " Polynesian" Weekly Newspaper, 4th to 25th July. ' The 4th of July was celebrated by a large number of the I American residents here, who gave a dinner at the house of I Haallilio, in the valley of Manoa. The King and his suite, with many other invited guests, were present. The party left town together, forming a strong cavalcade, and as they rode across the plain, presented a gay and cheerful appearance. The dinner was cooked in a native style, and the manner of par- taking nearly so. The dishes were placed upon mats upon the floor, and the party arranged themselves around this primitive table in such attitudes as best suited their case or convenience. Many toasts were drank, and the festivities were enlivened by a variety of fine songs. Nothing occurred to interrupt the har- mony of the scene, and although not confined exclusively to Americans, every one appeared to be united in the celebration of the day. Salutes were fired at morning, noon, a...

SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 23 October 1840
SYDNEY. Public Money.-We stated in a late number, that the Gover- nor had given notice to the banks of his intention to demand seven per cent, interest for the public money lodged in the dif- ferent banks in the town ; this was a mistake : five per cent. is the rate of interest which His Excellency requires, and which we are informed is obtained by Sir John Franklin for the Van Diemen's Land public money. Whait for Government.-The Government has, we learn, exclusively for the use of its respective establishments, pur- chased a sufficient quantity of wheat to fill the whole of.the Siloes at Cockatoo Island. The Weather_The weather in and about Sydney still con- tinues favourable for the coming harvest. It has been very warm during noon for these some days past. We most sin- cerely hope, for the sake of all classes, that we shall not be de- ceived in our anticipations of a favourable harvest. > Growth of HW.-This colony is likely to find-a rival in «io growth of wool in the Cnpe of...

NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 23 October 1840
NEW ZEALAND. We witnessed on Saturday last with much satisfaction the arrival of the Cosmopolite, a French whaler. It is the first whaling vessel which has resorted to Port Nicholson to refresh. She belongs to Havre, has been out thirteen months, and has 2,300 barrels black oil and 7 tons of whalebone. A few months hence we hope we shall be enabled to supply the wants of transient ships in (hu most ample manner. We understand the commander declares this to be one of the finest ports in New Zealand, and that if the whaling vessels were acquainted with it, they would resort to it generally in preference to proceed to the Ray of Islands.-¿Yew Zealand Guzette, Sep- tember 5. Three days after the arrival of the Britomart at Banks' Peninsula, the French frigate L'Aube, Commodore La vand, arrived, and two days later the French whaler Compte de Paris made her appearance, having ou board fifty agricultural emigrants, and sundry supplies for the new settlement. Among these were several large ...

THE COURIER. Strcnue et ÎJrosperc. HOBART TOWN, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 23. AT the request of several parties we this week publish the first part, being the oral portion, of the evidence taken on the Bothwell Church case. The documentary evidence we shall continue in our next number ; and after the perusal of the whole, we so- lemnly appeal to the understanding of any man in the colony, whose judgment is not warped by preju- dice or passion, whether a more dishonest case on the part of those complaining against the Bill before the Legislative Council, has ever yet been urged at the bar of any legislative body. With the coolest effrontery in the world we were told of £690 ex- pended upon this building; and upon what foundation does such an assumption rest ? Upon the surmise of Mr. Garrett, in juxta-position with which we beg to put the evidence of the contractor of the building itself. Then as to " the Call," and « the Presby- terian minister," it is sufficient to say that the Pres- byterian...

The decline in the price of German wool of this season has beeu considerable,-quantities from 2^. fid. per lb. and upwards having suffered nt least a fall of 20 per cent., the lower descriptions not so much ; this fact has also contributed to effect the fall in our colonial wool of about 3d. per lb. in the average.

LOCAL. Lady Franklin's 'at home' on Wednesday evening, &nbsp; went off with considerable eclat. The company was rather select than numerous, and enjoyed a very pleasant evening. The party separated about one o'clock. The preparations for the ball and supper to be given to the officers of H.M.S. Terror and Erebus, are proceeding with great vigour. The committee are indefatigable. Mr. Hugh Cassidy'« estate of 1400 acres, at the Old Beach, was sold by auction, by Mr. T. Y. Lowes, on Monday last, for £4000. Mr. Daniel O'Connor was the purchaser.
