CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 7 August 1840
CHINA. The South Australian papers give us China intelligence to the commencement of April. Two attempts had been made to burn the English merchant fleet, but the fire ships fortunately effected little damage. The Ameri- cans were about to withdraw to Macao, and had refused all consignments or transhipments of English goods. Another , decree had been issued by Lin. Hete follows a characteristic extract. " We have jiut received nn F.dict from the High Authorities, stating the English after being driven out to the high seas, did in succession one after another lift their anchors, spread their sails, and proceed to the foreign ocean, ns the pilots have duly examined and reported ; but at the same time, those which loiter about and anchor off Linlin, and other places on the high seas arc also not a few ; and moreover there are a great many traitorous natives and de- praved boat people-greedy after profits and regard- less of life, who covet the fat mutton and put away (ho bad "smell, th...

THIS MORNING'S POST. (From the Launceston Advertiser.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 7 August 1840
THIS MORNING'S POST. (From the Launceston Advertiser,J Dreadful Accident.-A truly melancholy accident oc- curred on Friday night last, to a soldier of "the 51st Regi- ment, named James Ross, whilst engaged in cleaning a gun, the property of his master, Mr. Skurray. An in- quest was held on the body on Saturday, when the jury returned a verdict of accidental death. It appears that the deceased was blowing into one of the barrels of the gun, with the nipple turned towards a lighted candle, when the powder ignited, and the contents of the gun were lodged in the unfortunate man's brain, producing instan- taneous death. The challenge which appeared in the Hobart Town Advertiser, to run Priam against any horse in the colony, for 100 guineas, has been accepted by Mr. Jonathan Ives, who also challenges to run against any two-year old in the Colony for the like sum, over the Launceston race course in March next.

MISCELLANEOUS. IMPORTANT TO THE LADIES—PO[?]TENTOUS TO ALL BACHELORS.—LEAP YEAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 7 August 1840
MISCELLANEOUS. IMPORTANT TO THE LADIES-.Pon-rrNTous TO ALI. BACIIE Lotts.-LEAP YEAH. The wisdom of our ancestors is admirably displayed in the following extract, from a volume printed in 1000, entitled " COURTSHIP, LOVE, and MATRIMONIE." " Albeit it is now become parte of the Common Lawe, in regarde to the social relutions of life, that as often as every bissextile year doth return, the Ladies have tho sole privilege, during the time it continueth, of making love unto the men, which they doe either by tcordes or lookes, as unto them it seemeth proper: and moreover no man will be entitled to the benefit of Clergy who dothe refuse to accept the offers of a Lndyc, or who dothe in anywise treat her proposal with slight or contumely." During three, out of ¿very four years, the Ladies are doomed to heart sickening suspenso mid painful silence, (unless spoken to) upon the most important subject of their lives ; every fourth year, however, and that, by the way, the longest, their dominion o...
