The Courier. FRIDAY EVENING, SEPTEMBER 11, 1840. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 11 September 1840

CÄ* C0ftrt*t% FRIDAY EVENING, SEPTEMBER li, 1840. THE proceedings in the Legislative Council have not, for the last few days, been characterised 'With any discussion of interest; there has been an eternal chattering and talking, and an appa- rent stagnation of business. Mr. Lawrence, we regret to say, has been absent from illness, and 'Mr. Ashburner has been called away in conse- quence of domestic affliction. The Road Act, and the Act to declare the in- applicability of " the Statute of James" to this colony, have been postponed. Upon the College question all the parties ap- pear now to haTe exhausted their strength, and are induced to come to an amicable accommoda .tion, "finding that they hore been battling with k empty shadows-the conjurations of their own y imagination. There is, however, one party in the .tate dissatisfied with the present system, and that is the society of Odd Fellows, who object to their children attending any religious observ- ance whatever, and maintain th...

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 4. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 11 September 1840

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. FRIDAY, September 4   On the Grant for the College being proposed In adverting to the Governor's Minute, the Chief Justice said-what are the objects proposed to be carried into effect according to the plan set forth? I think it of the greatest importance that they should be certain and defined, but I discoter, on examina- tion, that there is really nothing certain in the matters   touched upon, and in every part of the documents there is so much left to construction-even the memory of parties-that I fear if we legislate on these un- stable grounds, instead of this institution being a bond of peace and goodwill amongst us, it will be the constant source of every jealousy and contention amongst all classes of men. 1 will state shortly what     are my reasons for coming to this conclusion In the first place, as to the Head or Principal of this College,   there is nothing determinate about him.

COLONIAL BANK -Mr. Young was elected as Solicitor to this Bank by a majority of laß votes. MILITARY AFFRAY.-On Tuesday evening last, the inhabitants of the upper part of Elizabeth street were kept in a state of considerable excite- ment for about three hours, occasioned by the following circumstance :-A party of soldiers, six in number, were at a house of ill-fame MI St. ! Giles', next door to the Brown Bear, where they met two sailors, named Morris and Tucker, belonging to the whaler America. A quarrel arose between the parties, which ended in a fight. The constables were called in, but the sailors and soldiers then uniting together, beat them off. The constables finding themselves overmatched, went off to reinforce their number.

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 11 September 1840

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. Paris was occupied with the fête of the 1st of May, the debates in the French Chamber beim: un interest- ing. We have satisfaction in learning that the nego- tiations for a commercial treaty between France and England, lately resumed, bave suffered no delay, and glenrise to little difference, so that there is every hope of their passing the French Chamber this ses- sion. We wish we could say as much for the scheme of quick communication between Frnnceand England by means of the Rouen railroad. The English have proffered the capital, which if the French do not accept, the loss and the fault be theirs. Private letters from Spain state that Espartero, in informing government of the taking of Biceitn, promises on'lhe 27lii (the anniversary of the biididuy of the Queen llegent) a fresh victory-viz, the cap- ture of Morella or Canlavieja. The writers of the letters before us deemed it probable that this prophecy would be fulfilled, and that Arragon would be very soon pac...

PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 11 September 1840

PORT PHILLIP. Blacks. -We have lately received a statement from some gentlemen residing in the Portland Bay district, enumerating the latest and most desperate outrages committed by the natives. The document was placed in our hands, with the significant intimation that as the aggrieved parties had applied in vain for protec- tion from the commissioner or his Honor, they left their case as a last resource in the hands of the con- ductors of the press. We sincerely trust it may prove effectual. The following is the statement we alluded to, copied with the greatest mention to accuracy:   "Since the last report left by Doctor Thomson and   others at the Gazette Office, respecting the disordered state of the Western District from the murders and other aggressions committed by the natives upon the settlers, the following list of daring outrages have been added for the information of the tardy Executive. 1 - They have robbed an out-station of Mr. Webster's. 2 - Fr...

NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 18 September 1840

NEW ZEALAND. We have received our file of the New Zealand Gazette, from No. 7 to No. 13 inclusive, and embracing a period of time from the 23rd May to the 4th July. There is no news of particular interest. The extracts which we furnish, will give the best idea of the progress of the colony. The president of the council has issued a public notice, calling upon the inhabitants between the age of eighteen and sixty, to hold themselves in readiness to be mustered and drilled, according to the articles of agreement which were signed by most of the colonists before leaving England, The object, it is stated, is to assure the minds of all persons of the existence of an adequate force for the preservation of order. It is intended to occupy no more than one hour in each week in this muster of the armed inhabitant1» j ünd it is expected that employers will make no deduction from the wages of those employed by them, for the small portion of time that may be taken from the day's labour in the di...

LOCAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 18 September 1840

LOCAL. We are given to understand that the military jury, which sat for the adjudication of the Criminal Sittings, will be the last; in future, civilians will comprise the juries, who are to adjudge criminal causes in the Supreme Court. This arrangement emanates from His Excellency the Lieutenant-Governor and the Executive Council, for the better administration of justice in the Supreme Law Courts of this island ; perhaps there is sound wisdom in this ; but our country friends will now begin to find the incon- venience of the system when put in practice. We understand that all persons liable to serve on juries, and living in Hobart Town, and within twenty miles thereof, will be liable to be sum- moned once a month, while parties residing beyond that distance, will receive an intimation to attend once every three months. Our short- sighted contemporaries who always piqued them- selves upon their opposition to things as they were, grumbled till they obtained the hoon, the " rights of ...
