ENGLISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 9 April 1841
ENGLISH EXTRACTS. The widow of the late Thomas Drummond, Under- secretary for Ireland, has given £1,000 to the Na tional Board of Education for the establishment of a foundation for training school-mistresses, to be called the Drummond School. The Chief Remembrancer has given £200 for the same object. It is said that the " Drummond Testimonial" will be placed in the grounds attached to these schools. The important suit between the Irish Society of London «ad the Lord Bishop of Derry terminated on Saturday, Nov. 14, in the Court of Common Pleas, by a verdict for the latter. The cause of action was the right of presentation to the church living of Camos, in the diocese of Derry, which has long been the sub- ject of very expensive litigation. The Wellington memorials-we9t end and east end-Chantrey and Wyatt-will be erected in the summer of 1843. Brighton is to be fortified if the present prospects of peace should become again clouded.

THE CABINET. THE WIDOW'S CHARGE AT HER DAUGHTERS BRIDAL. BT MRS. X» H. SICOUBHEV. Deal gently, tbou, whose hand has won The young bird from her nest away, Where careless 'neath a vernal sun She gailycaroll'd day by day ; The haunt is lone-the heart must grieve, From whence her timid wing doth soar. The pensive list, at hush of eve, Yet hear her gushing sound no more. Deal gently with her,-thou art dear, Beyond what vestal lips have told ; And like a lamb, from fountains clear. She turns, confiding, to thy fold : She round thy sweet, domestic bower, The wreathes of changeless love shall twine/ Watch for thy step at vesper hour. And blend her holiest prayer with thine. Dealgently, thou, when far away, 'Mid stranger scenes, her foot shall rove. Nor let thy tender cares decay, The soul of woman lives in love : And should'st thou, wondering, mark a tear Unconscious from her eyelid break. Be pitiful, and soothe the fear That man's strong heart can ne'er partake. A Mother yields her gem to...

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 9 April 1841
MISCELLANEOUS. The Dutte of Kent.-The affectionate remembrance we retain of its lamented owner may have added to my regret and increased the interest I felt in this lonely and pecu- liar ruin. In the Duke of Kent the Nova Scotians lost a kind patron and a generous friend. The loyalty of the people, which, when all America was revolting, remained firm and unshaken, and the numerous proofs he received of their attachment to their King aud to himself, made an impression upon his mind that was neither educed or weakened by time or distance. Should these pages hap- pily meet the eye of a Colonial Minister, who has other objects in view than the security of place or the interests of a party, may they remind bim of a duty that has never been performed but by the illustrious individual, whose former residence among us gave rise to these reflections. This paper is designed for the cottage, and not for the palace ; and the author has not the presumption even to hope that it can ever be bouour...

INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 9 April 1841
INDIA. WE have received files of the Englishman and Calcutta Courier to the middle of January. No intelligence had been received from China later than that which has already reached us from Singapore. Sir Hugh Gough had sailed from Madras in Decem- ber by the Cruuer to assume the command of the Chinese Expedition. He was succeeded in his com- mand of the Mysore division of the Madras army by Major-General Allen. It will be seen from the General Order published by Major-General Brooks, that a very gallant action lias been fought at Kotrah between 9Ö0 of the native infantry, under the command of Lieutenant-Colonel Marshall, and about 4000 of the enemy who had evacuated Khelat. Private accounts agree in re- presenting the position as very strong by nature and difficult of access ; but the determined gallantry of the troops overcame every obstacle. Nusscer Singh, the principal chieftain, made his escape : but Colonel Marshall again overtook him in the hills, when he agreed to surrender,...
ADELAIDE PRESS. CASE OF MR. MACPHERSON. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 9 April 1841
ADELAIDE PRESS. CASE OF MR. MACPHERSON. A contemporary informs us that Mr. Macpherson hu directed actions of damages for false imprisonment to be forthwith instituted against Captain O'Halloran, Police Commissioner, Robert Gouger, Esq., Colonial Secretary, and George Hall, Esq., Private Secretary, the magistrates who committed Mr. Macpherson to prison, on the sus* picion of wilful fire raising. Under such circumstances, it would, perhaps, be the fairest course to say nothing that could prejudice the trial of these important cases, nod we shall accordingly confine ourselves to a brief and final notice of the gross misstate in en t affecting the legal reputation and honourable cha- racter of his Honor Judge Cooper, put forth by a contení, porary, if not under the direct dictation, certainly under the immediate influence and supervision, of the Advocat«. General. We state then, aud for the last time, that the assertion that Judge Cooper charged the Grand Jury to ignore the bill against...

THE COURIER. Stremie at Prospere. HOBART TOWN, FRIDAY, APRIL 9. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 9 April 1841
THE COURIER. Strenue et Urespere. HOBART TOWN, FRIDAY, APRIL 9. IT is our pleasing task to announce the safe return to our port of H. M. Discovery ships Erebus and Terror. Captains Ross and Crozier, after a voyage of six months to the antarctic pole. Our readers will be happy to learn that the expe- dition has been crowned with the most complete suc- cess, for though they reached not the exact position of the magnetic pole, owing to the immense barriers of ice, and ice-covered mountain that intervened, they were enabled to fix it at about one hundred miles dis- tance from them, as nearly as could be ascertained from the observation of the needle. The Erebus and Terror left Hobart Town on the 12th November, 1840, and arrived at the Auckland Islands on the 20th ; having completed the ne- cessary observations there, they sailed on the 12th December for Campbell Island, which they reached the following day, and having furnished the requisite observations in the South harbour of that isl...
GEELONG—CORIO IN 1850. [Extracted from an unpublished Edition of the Universal Gazeteer.] [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 9 April 1841
GEELONG-CORIO IN 1850. [Extracted from an unpublished Edition of the Universal Gazcteer "\ The most remarkable characteristic of this great city is, that it has outstripped all the tovtns which were fur advanced before Corio was heard of. Ten years ago, there wera only about a dozen houses, where now flourishes the Emporium of the Aus trulasiatic Nations. The City of Corio is situated at the south- western corner of a beautiful harbour of the same name. The appearance of the city from the bay is imposing and picturesque, but the view is obstructed by the forest of masts, and the clouds of smoke emitted by the steamers which are eternally arriving" and departing. It is difficult to fix upon the boundary line between the city and the suburbs, for the shores of the bay arc so thickly studded with villas, ship-yards, private wharfs, &c., from Point Henry to Saltwater Creek, that it appears to be one immense metropolis. That part of the town which slopes towards the bay displays ...
