The Courier. FRIDAY EVENING, AUGUST 21, 1840. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 21 August 1840
Cfl* Cutt?**?* FRIDAY EVENING. AUOUST 21,1840. THE Legislative Council met on Saturday, the i 5th, pursuant to the summons issued. The country members were all at their posts, with the exception of Mr. Anstey, who is expected this week. His Excellency read his Address, which will be found in another part of our paper. We congratulate the Government on the new light which " the call fan awkward word) for public labour" has diffused over their senses ; and we are no less rejoiced to find in the Finance Minute, the sum of £10,000 has been appro- priated to purposes of emigration. As a qualifi- cation, however, of our triumph over His Ex- cellency's Quit-Rent reply, we have the want of labour traced to the increase of cultivation, not | to any decrease of population, as if it were not just the same in political economy, whether the want-so that it existed-arose from increased demand upon our resources, or from decay of population. To prevent ruin and promote pros- perity, are equally th...

The Courier. &nbsp; &nbsp; THURSDAY EVENING, AUGUST 20,1840. ADDRESS OF HIS EXCELLENCY THE LIEUTENANT-GOVERNOR TO THE LEGIS- LATIVE COUNCIL. Council Chamber, 15th August, 1840. GENTLEMEN, Since we last met, Her Majesty's Secretary of State has notified to me that, by an Act of the Im- perial Legislature, your powers have been enlarged so considerably, as to enable you to extend, whenever auch a step maybe deemed necessary, the Judicial Establishments of the Colony ; and I congratulate you upon the increased responsibility thus devolved upon you. One of the first measures which I shall propose for your adoption is a Bill lo introduce Trial by Civil .Juries in Criminal cases ; a measure which I believe will be of substantial and paramount advantage, not because the system of Military Juries hitherto prevailing has not been found pure and effective and merciful, but because every free inhabitant of this Island will henceforth feel that he is subject to a high moral resp...

LOCAL. Van Diemen's Land, we understand, is to be created a See, and the Archdeacon to be made the Bishop. We have seen the decision of Lord John Rus- sell upon Mr. Burnett's case, and have to regret that too sanguine a report should have been caught up by his friends and relatives here, as the opinion of Lord John Russell is fatal. STOCK.—On Thursday a sale of stock took place at Vincent's, at the Cross Marsh, by Mr. T. Y, Lowes, of twenty-five fat bullocks, and one thousand wethers. The bullocks fetched from £20 to £25 per head, and the wethers went off at an average of 22s. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; The Marianne, Captain Hayle, came to anchor in our harbour yesterday morning. She left the Isle of Wight on the 26th April, and &nbsp; consequently does not bring us any later news than that received per Asia. Captain Hayle reports having seen the wreck of a mast off the Cape on the 13th July, which he passed to leeward as close as possible, there being a he...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 28 August 1840
I TO TUE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. \ Stn, The Church Act of this colony, if not speedily amend- ed, must prove an embarrassment to the Government, and inflict upon the country an irremediable pecuniary incu- bus. It may he our local authorities will be more readily awakened to this fact, than to the notorious inapplica- bility of the act, to accomplish its professedly liberal object. In llii« town, we have an Episcopalian church, creeled at our expense of nearly ±'4000 of public money, with n revenue-endowed minister. »Some of the congregation recently became discontented willi their clergyman ; and immediately they fly to the provisions of the Church Act -subset ¡be the required declaration-although scat holders at the former church-and secure £1000 from the revenue towards the building of n second church, and a revenue-salary for a second clergyman I We iiavc also a Presbyterian church ; built partly by voluntary contributions, and partly hy aid from the re- venue ; and a revenue-end...

LOCAL. THE Legislative Council met on Monday, and were occupied in passing several Bills, the dis- cussion of which excited no interest. They adjourned until Wednesday, which was taken up in like manner ; so also Thursday. Monday next is expected to be " a field day," being that upon which Mr. Anstey is to address the Council. CoNCEiiT.--A grand miscellaneous Concert is announced to take place at the Theatre Royal, in Campbell-street, on Monday Evening next, under the auspices of Mr. M'Leod, so well known and appreciated amongst our fellow-townsmen for his musical abilities, and long remembered as the veteran leader of the fine band of the 21 st Royal North British Fusileers. The music selected for tlic occasion comprises a very agreeable variety of the amusing «vith the scientific. The band of the 51st King's Own Light Infantry lend their powerful aid, by permission of the Colonel of the regiment ; indeed, the chief musical talent of the colony will he concentrated for the occasion...

TO CORRESPONDESTS. VaaiTAs in our next. Jn answer to G, we hate reason for knowing that many of the Roman Catholics disavow the Rev. Mr. Therry's petition g indeed, we believe the reverend gentleman himself Aas expressed his regret that it should have given offence to his christian brethren ; but he qualified that regret in a very strange woy, by preaching a sermon upon it last Sunday. As Captain Fenton says-"tliere is the petition-you cannot get over that." It is the positive duty of the Council to refuse, if not Mr. Therry's salary, at least to cut off the Jour Roman Catholic ministers pi ovided for in the Estimates, who are to entail > £800 a-year on the colony. We have read Mr. Thomson's letter, and have received a full account of all the facts connected with the building of Bothwell Church, from which we shall be enabled to prove that all the assistance affoi ded by the Presbyterian inhabitants, upon tthich so much stress is laid, did not - amount to *29. and that the " cart...

I TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. \ Launceston, August Iii, 1840. I SIR. A letter appears in your last publication, signed " W. J. Aislabie," on the subject of education as now conducted in the public schools of the colon), under direction and coittroul of the Board of I duuition , and tlip writer gives it as his opinion that the society of Biptists, as well as the Independents, are opposed to the principle on which these schools are conducted 1 can usaiiie your coi respondent that 1 cuidially approve of that principle-so long as the publie, schools are to be supported from the revenue , and ni making this avowal, I believe I express not only the views of the Baptist society, but those of congrega tioiialists m general. These schools are modelled upon the plan of the British and Foreign School Socictj, which secures to the children taught in them pure scriptural education -the doctrines and precepts of the Bible being in- culcated only in the words of that sacred book, | which, under ...

I TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. I líichninnd, August 17, 1840. | SIR, It may reasonably be demanded that he who com- plains of tiny public wrong, should point out a remedy. I have shown the unsatisfactorinessof the present plan of éducation, ils inherent defects, and its permanent in- jury tu the colony, should it be continued. The Lieutcnant-Governor has spoken of ihe education question as one surrounded willi difficulties ; 1 cannot think that the Hoard has found a passage, and steered safely through those difliculiies ; it seems to me that they are still entangled in them; that the «vorst ililli unities and dangers still beset Hiern ; and that they cannot be extricated unless a new courbe ¡s shaped for them. I accept His Excellency's description of this ques- tion ; the plan which 1 would respectfully submit lo himself, and to which I would call the attention of a discerning public, cannot be expected to be exempt from all objection ; but I humbly trust that it is free finm those...
