LETTER FROM A SEAMAN OF THE PRINCESS CHARLOTTE TO HIS FATHER AT PLYMOUTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 16 April 1841
LETTER FROM A SEAMAN OF THE PRINCESS CHARLOTTE TO HIS FATHER AT PLYMOUTH. My dear Father,-I have received your welcome letter, and happy lo hear all our dear family are well, as I am at present, although I must say since I last wrote to you we have had some sharp work for the eyes, I do assure you. First and foremost we took Sidon. I was ashore with the Royal Marines, whom we call jollies, and right jolly fellows, be- lieve me, they are for fighting, as the Egyptians know to their cost : but now I must tell you, as far as I can leam from the marines, their officers proposed to send out skir- mishers to cover their men while they formed a landing, and go on in what they call sections or threes, or quarter distance column. But our brave commodore, who is called Charley, a rum one to look at but a rare one to go, swore he would have no " parade nonsense," but would make skirmishers of us all ; so off we set with the Turks helter skelter, the Devil take the hindmost. I believe our mess-...

ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. DISASTER AT ACRE. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 16 April 1841
ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. DISASTER AT ACRE. On the Glh of November, three days after the fall of this redoubtable fortress, and when the British were still re- joicing at having achieved in three hours, and with a loss on their side of only 22 killed and 44 wounded, that which even iu its then inferior strength withstood eleven assaults of Napoleon, and was only taken on the twelfth with a sud loss of human life, they were doomed to suffer a disaster, the origin of which is likely never to be cleared up, though, in all probability, it has arisen from the loose manner ia which powder appears to have been conveyed from place to place by the enemy, during the defence of it against the allies; for it seems the approaches to the works front the several magazines are literally one continued train of powder, requiring the greatest vigilance lo remove so as to avoid such consequences as the one we are about to relate. A column, at least 50!) yards in height, of thick yellow smoke and dusk, with...

INSOLVENT COURT. WEDNESDAY, 14TH APRIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 16 April 1841
INSOLVENT COURT. WEDNESDAY, 14TIÍ APRIL. The business of the court was concluded before 12 o'clock, although there were several cases entered on the paper. The first three, M'Leod, Ries, and Masters, were first meeting of creditors, and as noue appeared to oppose in M'Leod's, not even to prove debts, the insolvents will be entitled to their discharge, if still unopposed at the next meeting. In the case of William Groves some little delay took place, in consequence of the absence of the permanent assignee; it was at length determined to defer the meeting for a fortnight, as some opposition was con- templated, the Commissioner observing that sufficient cause for postponement had appeared on the insolvent's first examination ; if, however, no opposition should be then offered, an order of discharge would be granted.
THE CABINET. FRIENDSHIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 16 April 1841
THE CABINET. FRIENDSHIP. When swift vicissitudes of life The sick'ning spirit vex, When grief and joy in rapid strife The weary mind perplex, When heartless folly, empty mirth, Their baneful influence blend, The loathing soul can find on earth No refuge but a friend. When interested slaves surround, A mercenary crowd, When flatt'rers' subtle tales resound Professions false tho' loud ; Alone-amid the fickle swarms That all our steps attend, How one unbought companion charms, One pure and faithful friend. Nor bought, nor sold for sordid pelf Such, Fortune, be thy boon, His friend e'en valued as himself, His fortunes as his own Thy golden gins may then depart If this thou deign'st to send, The sweetest solace of the heart, A true and faithful friend. E. M. 1 Bad as the world is, respect is always paid to virtue. In the usual course of human affairs it will be found, that a plain understanding, joined to acknowledged worth, contribute! more to prosperity, than the brightest parts withou...

NON-INTRUSION. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 16 April 1841
NONINTRUSION. BLACKWOOD'S MAGAZINE.-If the non-intrusion party succeed by dint of clamour, resistance to the law, and misrepresentation, in at last obtaining the worst mode of appointing spiritual teachers that human wit has ever yet devised, namely, the nomination of the masses in one part of the kingdom, how is it to be resisted in another ! With what countenance can it be maintained that the rights of patrons are to be spoliated and set at nought to the north of the Tweed, and defended and maintained inviolate to the south of that river-that the clergy are to be elected by universal suffrage in Scotland, and by the crown, the bishops, or the patrons in the English counties ? Such an imaginary line was never between revolution and Conservatism in the same empire. The English may now not understand, or despise, the quarrels of the Scottish church, but let them beware. In former days, it was the Scottish covenant which overturned the English crown, and another solemn league and cove...
SIGNS OF THE TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 16 April 1841
SIGNS OF THE TIMES. OUR readers hare not forgotten the splendid ban- quet given to the Duke of Buccleuch at Branxholme, not by his Grace's tenants only, but by the whole of the border yeomanry. It now gives us equal plea- sure to state, that similar demonstrations, though perhaps on a still larger scale, have lately taken place further north, in honour of the Earl of Aberdeen, and especially to celebrate the nuptials of his Lord- ship's eldest* son. Not confined to the immediate vicinity of the noble Earl's residence, -where (accord- ing to the Aberdeen Herald, a Whig paper) an im- mense concourse of " the prosperom and happy te- nantry" hailed the arrival of the young Lord and his bride, the rejoicings extended to the detached estate in New Machar, in which parish a large and joyous public dinner took place on the same day. From the same local print (a hostile authority, observe) we learn that " Exactly at 12 o'clock upwards of 200 gentlemen on horse- back were assembled, besides m...

CRISIS OF THE BATTLE OF ALBUERA. Extracts from a letter of Sir Henry Hardinge, to the Editor of the United Service Journal. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 16 April 1841
CRISIS OF THE BATTLE OF ALBUERA. Extracts from a letter of Sir Henry Hardinge, to the Editor of the United Service Journal. When I left Hoghton's brigade engaged on the hill, the scene of lire great struggle of the day, it was expressly for j the purpose of causing the 4lh Division to move up to the attack of the enemy's column. Marshal Beresford had previously gone to the left, as I find it stated at page 250, ' Strictures,' 2nd edition, &lt; to ascertain the cause of the delay ia the arrival of the Portuguese brigade.' When I galloped np to Sir L. Cole, I recollect this peculiarity ns a Staff Officer, that I addressed him with my sword drawn, having a-few minutes before directed some of the enemy's skirmishers, who had collected within twenty paces of our right flank, to be driven buck. These cucrouchmenlB were becoming more frequent; our line, from the immense losses it had sustained, was less able to repulse them ; and some of the soldiers in the ranks were calling to th...
