MANIFESTO OF THE EX-QUEEN REGENT OF SPAIN. Marseilles, November 8, 1840. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 26 March 1841
MANIFESTO OF THE EX-QUEEN REGENT OF SPAIN. Marseilles, November 8,1840. When your King, at the brink of the grave, plnccd with his trembling ¡12nd the reins of the state in my hands, my eyes were turned alternately towards my husband, the cradle of my child, and the Spanish nation, thus uniting in one these three objects of my aflbetlon, in order to recommend them in the same prayer to the protection of Heaven. My painful trials as a wife and a mother, whilst the life of my husband, and the throne of my daughter were in danger, did not prevent my per- forming my duties as Queen. At my voice the universities were opened ; at my voice inveterate abuses disappeared, and wise and deeply-meditated reforms began to present themselves ; and, at my voice, those who were proscribed, and wandering in foreign lands, were restored to their homes, which they had so vainly sought to revisit. Your joyful enthusiasm at these solemn acts of justice and clemency was only equal to the extent of the gr...

EXTRACTS. I Woolwich, Dec. 1.-The " Anne" sailed on Fri- áis T With »cargo of shot, for the Buckinghamshire East Indiaman, lying at present at Northfleet-hope. This splendid vessel has now a considerable number of guns and a large quantity of shot on board, and will shortly sail for the East Indies. The "Chalton" removed 1,000 ten-inch shells yesterday for the East India Company. The shells are to be put on board the George IV*., at present lying in the East India Docks. It is worthy of remark, that notwithstanding the (rreat quantities of military stores recently shipped from the Royal Arsenal for China, Syria, and other parts of the world, the supply has been so well kept tip that there is actually at present a greater quantity on hand than there was at the commencement of the year, when the stock exceeded 28,000 large guns, and upwards of 4,000,000 of balls and shells. The successful attack on St. Jean d'Acre is the object of many attempts of the Paris journals to di- minish the ...

THE COURIER. Strrnue et Çrospw. HOBART TOWN. FRIDAY, MARCH 26. On Tuesday next it is proposed to give a public dinner to Captain Montagu on his return to this colony, as a mark of the private esteem entertained for his character, and in token of the services which he has rendered us in England, by using his best endeavours towards relieving our reputation of the foul aspersions which ignorant or interested men busied themselves in heaping upon us, until by dint of remonstrance and persuasion with the Home Autho- rities, lie was enabled not only to cause thetide^of trans- portation which annually flowed into this colony to return again to its original course, but to add and make tributary to it the streams which flowed and were destined to flow elsewhere. It is true that the system is modified; but in tbc present exi- gency of affairs, or indeed under any circumstances, the annual expenditure which large bodies of prison- ers must bring to the colony, will prove of incalculable benef...

POLICE.

Michael Synot, remanded on a charge of drunkenness and assaulting Constable Haydon, now appeared to answer the above charge. It appeared by the evidence, that the constable was more in fault than the defendant, he having acted in a very disorderly manner towards de- fendant and his wife, insulting her with the grossest epithets, whereupon the man naturally ran to take his wife's part, and was then taken into custody, and the above charge preferred against him. Case dismissed. A person named Bailey bound over to keep the peace towards Mr. Shacklock, in his own recognizance of £30.

THE CABINET. TO A DEPARTED SPIRIT. BY MKS. IIKMANS. From the bright stars, or from the viewless air. Or from some world, unreached by human thought; Spirit, sweet spirit 1 if thy home be there. And if thy visions with the past be fraught, Answer me, answer me ! Have we not communed here', of life and death ? Have we not said that love, such love as ours, Was not to perish, os a rose's breath, To meit away, like song from festal bowers? Answer, oh I answer me I Thine eye's last light was mine-the sonl that shone Intensely, mournfully, through gathering haze; Didst thou bear with thee, to the shore unknown, Nought of what lived in that long earnest gaze ? Hear, hear, and answer rae ' Thy voice-its low, soft, fervent, farewell tone' . Thrilled through the tempest of the parting strife Like a faint breeze:-oh I from that music flown. Send back one sound, if love's be quenchless life I But once, oh I answer mc I In the still noontide, in the sunset's hush, In the dead hour of night, when...

THE COURIER. Strcmie et iJrosptrc. HOBART TOWN, TUESDAY, MARCH 30. THE Secretary of State has approved of the Rev. the Roman Catholic Vicar-General being" placed upon an equality with the Rev. Mr. Lillie in respect to His lordship ha3 expressed his unqualified appro- bation of the system of education adopted by Sir John Franklin, and approves of the vote of £4000 for this purpose. He affirms his readiness to assist the plan, and with this view will forward teachers, accord- ing to the suggestions which have been made from this colony. It «ill be Been from our China intelligence, which reaches us to the end of December, that the truce en- tered into was but a pretext for delay 'on the part of the Chinese, and the war which was lately looked upon as concluded, seems likely to be protracted to an indefinite period. Things have been better ma- naged in Syria. Admiral Elliot has resigned the command of the fleet, and Sir Gordon Bremer suc- ceeds. Let us hope that the time for striking a ...
IRELAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 30 March 1841
IRELAND. Two hundred healthy Irish peasants embarked on Saturday from Cork in the Express steamer for Ply- mouth, whence they would sail for Sydney and Port Phillip in the Argyle, on Monday. They were, with few exceptions, of the better order of farmers. One family, named Dwyer, created much interest. They consisted of a widow, seven daughters, and two sons ; they had, it was stated, left an extensive " take" in tho county of Limerick, and, with numbers of their neighbours, induced by the representations of a gen- tleman who had only a short time returned, had broken up and disposed of their establishments, and determined to settle in Australia.-Nov. 7. During the past week several meetings have taken place in Dublin and elsewhere for the purpose of promoting Irish manufactures. In refereuce to one of these, Lord Mountcashel writes :-" Let us eu courage profitable manufactures, but let us never forget that Ireland must look to her green acres as her surest and best support."

NEW ZEALAND PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 30 March 1841
NEW ZEALAND PRESS. WE are much mistaken if crimping and its consequences will not prove a source of annoyance to Governor Hobson nnd his advisers, as longaa the clique at Auckland endures. Last week we ventured to recommend that letters should be written by the settlers at Port Nicholson to their frieuds in England, political and commercial, representing the conduct of the Thames functionaries in its true colours ; and we can now state that in numerous instances this sug- gestion lias not only been adopted, but that our wishes have been anticipated by several gentlemen whose influ- ence will be felt in quarters where Captain Hobson must be most anxious to stand well. Statements will be made privately and confidentially by staunch friends of the Go- vernment, who would not join in any open attack ; and it is needless to remark how much more effectual this kind «f interference frequently becomes, than a formal motion in Parliament-though there also the name of Hobson will become notor...

EXTRACTS. The arrival of the « Chelydra," Captnin Smale. has turnished us with recent datea from Auckland. We nre nappy to hear Captain Hohson's health has been quite restored. About three hundred acres of the town ure reduced lo a plan ; of these, about thirty acres are offered for sale on the 19th April next. This will be the first land offered by. the Government, and considering that at the dale of sale, these Islands will hate been proclaimed, in the name of the Queen, some fifteen months,-though nor surveys ha\e been delayed,-the Company's proceedings »re compared to advantage with those of the Government. And more particularly so, when it is kept in mind that the operations of the Government have been carried on upon a large level territory, unencumbered by a single tree or bush. Surveying in «itch a district might be carried on by tens of thousands of acres in the week. The Govern- ment at Auckland purpose recovering a large space from «ne water ; by ruuning out a three sided...
