INDIA. SURRENDER OF DOST MAHOMED KHAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 23 March 1841

INDIA. SURRENDER OF DOST MAHOMED KHAN. WE aïe now enabled to place before our readers from a Delhi Gazette Extraordinary, full particulars of the late disaster attendant upon our concluding triumph over Dost Mahomed. Greater personal gallantry, a nobler example, than was displayed by the officers of the 2nd Cavalry, never appeared in any fight wherein British soldiers have taken a part -and viler dastardy, or baser treachery, or more miscreant revenge (for we have heard all these mo- tives assigned) was never before exhibited by native troopers. They, of course, will meet with the merited retribution. We have heard as the motives for their conduct, cowardice, unwillingness to fight in a war they thought religious, and indignation at punishment inflicted upon one of their number ; but whatever may be the motive, we hope they may be broken up and degraded. Other particulars have come to our knowledge, of which we shall only men- tion that Lieutenant Moffatt actually cut his way throug...

SCOTLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 23 March 1841

SCOTLAND. i The Glasgow Reformer, speaking of Paisley, says " Trade is remarkably dull here ; scores of unem- ployed and fdinishing weavers are to be seen traversing the streets. Houscbreaking and theft are on the, increase ; and coupling this with the present high price of provisions, and the gloom and chill of winter coming on, altogether the prospect is of the most dreary description." A rather smart shock of earthquake was felt at Comrie on the evening of the 26th, at a quarter to seven o'clock. This is the third shock that has been sensibly felt within the last month. The Hon. Robert Campbell Scarlett, eldest son of Lord Abinger, has purchased the Marquis of Huntly's romantic scat of Inverloch}' Castle for £75,150. It was originally bought by the Marquis, in 1834, for £56,000. On Wednesday forenoon a block of granite, weigh- ing nearly 20 tons, was brought to Macdonald and Leslie's granite and marble works, Aberdeen, from the Dancing Cairn. It is intended to be wrought into a c...

No title [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 23 March 1841

The Budget Law will soon be submitted to your examination. I I have prescribed the most severe economy in the establishment j of the ordinary expenses. Events have imposed upon us un- expected charges. I have the confidence that public prosperity at its extreme pitch, will permit us to support them without affecting the state of our finances. ' Other dispositions will be presented to you of public utility on behalf of literature and education. Gentlemen, I have never claimed with more earnestness and confidence your loyal co-operation. Anarchical passions have not been discouraged by impotency. Under whatever form that they may be presented, my government will find in the existing laws, and in the firm maintenance of the public liberties, the necessary arms to put them down As for me, in the trials imposed on mc by Providence, I can only be grateful for the protection which it has not ceased to throw over me, tis « eil as my family, and to prove to France, by a never-failing attenti...

THE COURIER. Strenue et Prospere. HOBART TOWN, TUESDAY, MARCH 23. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 23 March 1841

THE COURIER. ätrenuc ft ïJrospcre. , HOBART TOWN, TUESDAY, MARCH 23. THE I.icutenant-Governor has received from the Secretary of State, by the " Lady Raffles," despatches of a most satisfactory nature. It was originally pro- posed by Lord John Russell that all prisoners what- soever should be employed in the service of the Crown, and be favoured with the indulgence of a first class ticket of-Ieave, which should entitle them to wages, to bo paid by the Government after a certain period of probation ; but Captain Montagu knowing that the sudden withdrawal of so vast a portion of labour must, in the absence of extensive emigration, materially affect the interests of the colonists, nor perhaps tend so much to the great object of Lord john Russell, which is the gradual habituation of the prisoner to freedom, as allowing him to be employed by the settler, contended strongly against this posi- tion, and induced his Lordship to vest a discretionary power by Act of Parliament in the Lieutena...

BRITISH AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 26 March 1841

BRITISH AMERICA. The Union Act of the two Canadas meets with considerable opposition in several quarters, and those who are discontented with the measure affirm that it will lead to a separation between Canada and the mother country. The new steam-boat, " Lord Sydenham," on the St. Law- rence, and now running between Montreal and Quebec, is one of the finest river steamers on this continent. She measures 206 feet in length, with every other part in proportion. Horse-racing is quite the rage in Canada, and the meetings of the turf derive much gaiety and animation from the presence of so many British officers. During the season to October 3 there had arrived at Quebec 1,130 vessels, being an increase of 221 over the same period of last year ; with 22,065 emigrants, being an increase of 15,591 over last year. The flour exported this year from Quebec has been 131,552 barrels ; last year, only 48,427. Major-General Sir James M'Donnell, who is to com- mand the troops in Upper Canada, will...
