SPIRIT OF THE ENGLISH PRESS. INFLUENCES OF TEXAS ON COMMERCE, SLAVERY, AND COLONIZATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 13 April 1841
SPIRIT OF THE ENGLISH PRESS. INFLUENCES OF TEXAS ON COMMERCE, SLAVERY. AND COLONIZATION. "WHEN Lord Palmerston and General Hamilton put their signatures the other day to a treaty of commerce between Great Britain and Texas, an event was ac- complished which can hardly fail to exert very im- portant influences on the trading relations of this country with America, and it may perhaps be added, on the cha- racter and progress of British colonization everywhere. We shall endeavour to show the nature of these influ- ences, separating the good from the bad, and distin- guishing between the probable and apparently inevi- table. But first it may be well to observe, that the speculations which we have hitherto indulged with re- gard to Texas are no longer mere speculations, but have -been in a great measure realized. We pretend not to have in any degree promoted the recognition by En° land of the nationality of Texas ; but that we had some forecast of the coming measure will now be scarcely ...
LILLIPUTIAN STEAMER. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 13 April 1841
LILLIPUTIAN STEAMER. The following extract of a private letter, dated Boulogne, on Thursday, contains some interesting particulars relative to the state of public feeling in that town and its vicinity : "The douaniers were in a state of excitement this afternoon. &nbsp; If report was to believed, war had been declared by England against France. At a distance from the heights a nondescript vessel was seen, to all appearance a washing tub, with a tobacco pipe (fuming and spitting out tiny volumes of smoke) in the centre. What the object of this strange craft be was the general enquiry. No one could answer the question. The Custom-house gentry took the alarm, and despatched a pilot boat to reconnoitre. All was anxiety. The little steamer neared the harbour. Anxious enquiries were made, and from one of the four men on board the answer was given-from Dover. "Question--Your tonnage? &nbsp; "Answer--One ton, &nbsp; &nbsp; "Your steam power ?--Two-horse. &...

No title [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 13 April 1841
An attempt is made to draw an invidious distinc- tion between the supporters of transportation and the upholders of free institutions ; but the times are out of joint for such an experiment. Our reasons for regarding the continuance of transportation as a benefit to the colony, are>-because in the first place we feel confident it does not produce the evil effects charged against it by the enemies of our moral and social condition, which this writer would infercntially assume to be the case ; and in the hext place, the ad- vantage, in a pecuniary point of view, is undoubtedly great, in the means which it affords us of a continuous supply of labour, and the encouragement which it gives to trade and agriculture in the large expenditure it creates. Such advantages we are ill-inclined to exchange for a bill of moonshine, such as that offered to the people of New South Wales, and we are con- tent to abide by the present order of things. People arc tired of the doleful winnings of drive...

THE COURIER. gtvrnue et ÎJvogpcrp. HOBART TOWN, TUESDAY, APRIL J 3. THE following Police arrangements are consequent upon the departure of Major Wentworth :-Mr. Breton to go to Launceston, Captain Forth to Rich* mond, Mr. Torlesse to Campbell Town, and Mr. John Forster to Hamilton. THE tenders for the supply of wheat at Hobart Town and Launceston have been accepted by the Go vernment at seven and sixpence the bushel. IN noticing- the recent voyage of discovery made by the Erebus and Terror to the Antarctic Pole, we com- mitted an error in stating that they proceeded only four degrees farther than the expedition under the command of Commodore D'Urville. On further re- ference to the account published by Commodore D'Urville himself, we find that Captain Ross pene- trated eleven degrees lower south thau the Astrolabe or Zélé, and four degrees more than any vessel has ever yet reached. There can be little doubt that the Americans saw the land of the same coast, but they have made some m...

They went to lire Park Theatre one evening, and were consequently denounced by one of the New York papers, and recommended not to outrage decency by appearing again in public. They are now in Philadelphia, entirely quiet and incog. A great meeting was held of the merchants and traders of New York, on the 28th ultimo, in front of the Exchange, in Well-street. They were addressed by Mr. Webster of the Senate of the United States, in a long speech, develop- ing his views on the financial interests and necessities of the country.
