THIS MORNING'S POST. (From the Launceston Advertiser.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 18 September 1840

THIS MORNING'S POST. Bl (From the Launceston Advtrtittr.) Bl Tlie past week has not been remarkable for any cnaní» ma in the sute of the corn market. Some of the large hold- H crs occasionally dispose of small quantities at the currer.t ma price, but few transactions have taken place. The sp"" ma of speculation appears to be gradually subsiding, and «pt- ?? culators seem to grow tick of anticipation and *re,"c° H with an insipid alternation of hopes and fears.

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

The Courier FRIDAY EVENING, September 18, 1840. We understand the College, about the selec- tion for the site of which there now appears to be a generous rivalry amongst the districts, and even between country and town, is not to be erected either at Hobart Town or Launceston. There is, we are informed, a petition from the inhabitants in the neighbourhood of Blackman's River, offering a site and subscriptions equal to those of the Campbell Town district. The inhabitants of New Norfolk have sub- scribed £1,000, and other sums are expected, in which event it is probable the College will be built there. Tub Council met on Tuesday for the second reading1 of the Road Act. Captain Forster moved it, and in doing so took occasion to notice the misrepresentations of con- temporary prints. He had been challenged to produce a single instance where the people had called for more than Commissioners to denne the road?. He produced the Richmond petition of 1835, praying that Commissioners be appoi...

COLONIAL BANK. We had resolved to remain silent on the subject of the late general meeting held for the purpose of np pointing the proper oflicers of the New Colonial Bank, first, bemuse vvc »ere anxious to see the Bank do well,und did nut wish that anv imputation should seem to rest upon any of the parties in autlu i ¡t\ over it, and second, because we trusted to the dist lefio» of Mr. Lewis to allow the matter to lest vvheic it did, without a futile attempt to raise a tiupby ona held of exceedingly doubtful fame. A triumph, however, was to be achieved, and accordingly the Ptupk's Join nal was enlisted in the cause, in the folds of which it contrived to insinuate its own deformity, in order the more fully tu establish the fair pioporlious of the ti¿ure Mr. Lewis cut in the eitim mon of the inciting.
