TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 7 August 1840
TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. Sut - I perceive'7/ser is again busy dispensing public ap- pointments-he tells us in last week's number, that Air Kermode is to succeed Mr. Kerr in the Legislative Council 1 Surely Sir John cannot so far forget himself, by thus overlooking the people's darling 1 I have no desire to derogate from ¡Mr. Kcrmodu's pretensions, but they can never justly be put in competition with those of Mr. Kemp, of Kemp Town, the tried friend of the colony, and its best interests 1 I do not know that Mr. Kemp would accept the appointment, but this I know, that he has been always ready to mount the breach for the solid good of both government and people, mid being now re- tired from the bustle of an honourable mercantile life, busied only in promoting the welfare of his district, he may still feel disposed to sacrifice periodically his personal case, mid give our little Parliament the benefit of his gtcat knowledge of and experience in the colony. At all events, the first ...

LOCAL. &nbsp; &nbsp; CITY OF EDINBURGH AND OCEAN QUEEN.- &nbsp; We have received a letter from Flinder s Island which is doubly interesting nt the present moment, as alluding to the unfortunate shipwrecks' of the City of Edinburgh and the Ocean Queen. ,We transcribe such portions of the letter as relate to these melancholy disasters. " If the late weather " in Hobart Town in any wise resembles the lair " ricanes we have had at Flindcr's Island, yon " will not be surprised to hear that our shores " have been visited by shipwrecks. Friday even " ing, the 10th July, set in most tempestuous, " and from some sort of presentiment the Cora " mandant visited the beach at nine o'clock, and " set a watch for the night. Two hours before " daybreak we were aroused by the news that a " vessel was wrecked somewhere near at hand, " and that a boat was coming on shore. The " Commandant hastened to the beach to reecho " the passengers, consisting of W. G. Boucher, " Esq., T. ...
The Courier. FRIDAY EVENING, AUGUST 7,1840. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 7 August 1840
The Courier. FRIDAY EVENING, AUGUST 7, 1840. WE have received per Asia, convict ship, English intelligence to the 27th April. The despatches - the long-looked for despatches, of "anxious days and sleepless nights," have at last &nbsp; arrived. The Asia could not get up owing to the adverse winds, and Captain Moriarty brought up the despatches with lightning speed. In the meantime, however, the Colonial Secretary and Mr. Mitchell rushed to Battery Point to try and catch a glimpse of the little boat that gallantly breasted the waves bearing the fate of "the Bill," &nbsp; the Colonial Treasurer, cum multis aliis. Mr. Gregory and all the officials were on the qui vive, while the Lieutenant-Governor was continually interrupting Dr. Turnbull with inquiries touching the despatches, and the sage Doctor was also so agitated at the prospect of the Colonial &nbsp; Treasurership, that he slipped in one or two letters about statistical matters. - "Have the despatches arri...
ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 7 August 1840
ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. The China question was treated throughout three kitts' debate as a strife .of political parties. The ruvernment had a majority of only nine. The charge f nc"lcct was undoubtedly made out against the Foreign Secretary ; but this was a small part of the ' t question, which both parties evaded-what is ihe best course to pursue now ? how can we stop the war? Even with the best attention and activity, it is not certain that a crisis could have been avoided. The nature of our intercourse with China seems to have rendered collision inevitable. The t«ir will remove the existing causes of war, it were absurd to hope. Unless the trade be placed on an entirely new footing, we may expect continual interruptions and nimrrels. The most fortunate result of the expedition now preparing would be the acquisition of trading stations off the coast, and perpetual exclusion from Canton. The Canada Reunion Bill has undergone the ordeal of a second reading in the House of Commons, wit...

Cl)e Courin*. . . .THURSDAY ÇFASaNG. AUSCST 6,1840. MR. LILLIE has published the lecture which he recently delivered at the opening; of the pre- witt session of the Mechanic»' Institute. We rejoice that he has done so at the present junc- ture, when there seems to be a contest of opinion a« to what should be the groundwork of the education of the youth of this colony, who are io be brought up within the walls of the public school or College, which latter name seems to have excited an apparent degree of jealousy amongst some of the offshoots of a spurious ?tock of half-bred Colleges in England, while others, in the simplicity of their minds, feel quite ajlftrmed at the magnificent pretensions of the appellation, and shrink from the expense which it would appear to indicate-in doubt also as to the practical uses of the education which is to be obtained therein. These people seem to forget that Eton, Westminster, and Winchester, are «ailed Colleges, and that they are royally en dowed, ...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 14 August 1840
I TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. | Bin,-When extraordinary measures are adopted for the advancement of morality, or rallier for the diminution of vice, and the shortest aud most obvious modo of attaining the same end is lost sight of, a few remarks on this anomalous state of things may not be inappropriate. In the first place, the new system of penal discipline is at varianco with the received notions of mankind, founded on the universal experience of all ages. It has ever br>en taught, believed, and experimentally demonstrated, thiit a constant and familiar intercourse with dissolute characters, so far from leading to re- formation, has a powerful tendency to harden the heart und deaden every good feeling. The prisoners, whilst ussigned, are dispersed asunder as fur us practicable, and intermixed willi good characters. This system however, objectionable as it has been found to be, is to give place to another, of which the main feature is a concentration of vice. Are we then to co...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 14 August 1840
I TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. \ Siii Having perused your remarks on the Hoard of Edu- cation, I am desirous of adding some information und making some comments on the same subject. You mention that Air. Nairne, the Secretary to the Hoard, performs the duty of inspection once in six months. You have been misinformed. I regret it. Accuracy is essential if you would reduce an argu- ment to absurdity. The present system was esta- blished on the 1st November, 1830 ; the secretary lins visited Richmond school twice in the intervening eight months and a-hnlf. Richmond is fourteen miles from Hobart Town. If this inspection, superintendence, and controul, be not ridiculous-if ita ridiculous in- sufficiency has not appeared to the patrons of the Board, they must, I imagine, be the only persons nu convinced.* Hut it may he suggested by those who are not acquainted with the working of the present system, (and they, I am sure, are very numerous) that there has been other inspection besides tha...

TO THE PUBLIC.

TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. I I Hobart Town, Friday, August 14. | Stn,- " " I have perceived with great regret that the Go- vernment Cazette of this morning in officially an- nouncing my removal from the office of Colonial Treasurer, is wholly silent as to the cause, and I therefore deem it to bo due to myself, my children, and the family from which I have sprung, to lose not a moment in re- questing you to do mc the justice to insert ia your Journal of this afternoon, the following correspondence which passed between the Local Government and myself the day after my removal, and which, though it docs not show why I have been removed, still proves beyond a doubt that at all events in the discharge of the high pecuniary trust reposed in me by lier Majesty, I have done nothing to disgrace the name I bear. I abstain for the present from entering upon the question generally as to my removal from office, my only object at this moment being that of protecting my own character against the...
