MEHEMET ALI'S SLAVE HUNTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 16 April 1841
* MEHEMET ALFS SLAVE HUNTS. " The slave hunts, or gazzuas, have been one of th« principal sources of supply on the frontiers of Mehamei Ali's dominions. The wages of the Pacha's troops werij frequently paid in slaves, and these slaves are calculate*! ata price considerably above the market value. As the pa Ï of the troops was often iu arrear, they generally showej no little activity in capturing the negroes, on whose sale they were to depend for the settlement of their claims and there is sufficient evidence that horrible atrocities are frequently committed in the capture of slaves. In some cases, where the blacks had retreated to caves and ca. vcrns, fires of straw and brushwood have been kindled st the entrance in order to force them out by fear of suffo- cation. Resistance leads to frays, in which much blood is shed ; but generally the poor slaves are seized by men in ambuscade, from their mothers when in the fields from small parties of blacks who are surprised or way- laid by t...
WAR STEAMERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 16 April 1841
WAR STEAMERS. THE following extract from "TurnbulPs Travels in^Cuba and the West Indies" will give some idea of the method in which our fleet of steamers in the Mediterranean is armed, and of their efficiency for warlike purposes. The Dee is a model for all the rest : " Before his arrival at Sacrificios, however, the blow had been struck, and Hie Castle of Sun Juan de Ulloa, which the ¡Mexicans had fondly imagined to be impregnable, had fallen before a random shot, thrown from one of the French guns a in Paixhans, resembling in all respects the principal gun on board our own steamer, the Dee, which blew up the principal magazioe, and thus effected a breach which with French intrepidity became easily practicable. "These guns, which are now very generally adopted in the British as well as the French service, and since the period in question have also been introduced into that of the United States, are perhaps the most formidable war- like instruments of modern invention. That on board...

SPIRIT OF THE ENGLISH PRESS. FALSE SYMPATHY WITH CRIMINALS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 16 April 1841
SPIRIT OF THE ENGLISH PRESS, &nbsp; FALSE SYMPATHY WITH CRIMINALS. WE are quite willing to admire to the full extent of its merits the favourite English maxim which holds that every man shall be esteemed innocent until he has been proved guilty; but by some who laud &nbsp; it most rapturously it is apt to be overlooked when the occasion, for acting upon it comes: and in pro- &nbsp; portion as it falls practically into disuse arises a curious substitute for it - that every man shall be esteemed innocent after he has been proved guilty. &nbsp; It is easy on this principle, but difficult on any other, to account for the violent sympathy for criminals criminals even of the worst class-which so often exhibits itself in this country. People of the plainest understanding and average-sensibility can compre- hend, if they cannot enjoy, the quiet mood which the poet describes -"when of its joy secure, The heart luxuriates with indifferent things, Wasting its ki...

DISINTERMENT OF NAPOLEON. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 16 April 1841
DISINTEIIMENT OF NAPOLEON. The following extract from a private letter describes the appearance of the body upon opening the coffin : «It is dillicult to describe with what anxiety, with what emotions, those who were present waited for the moment, which was to expose to them all that death bait left of Napoleon. Notwithstanding the singular state of preservation of the tomb and collins, we could scarcely hope to find anything but some misshapen remains of the least perishable parts of the costume to evidence the iden- tity. But when, by the hand of Dr. Guillard, the satin sheet was raised, an indiscribable feeling of surprise and affection «vas expressed by the spectators, most of whom burst into tears. The Emperor himself was before their eyesl The features of the face, though changed, were perfectly recognised-the hands perfectly beautiful-his well-known costume had suffered but little, and the co- lours were easily distinguished-the epaulets, the decora- tions, and ibu hat, seeme...

THE COURIER. Strenue et Prospere. HOBART TOWN, FRIDAY, APRIL 16. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 16 April 1841
THE COURIER. Strrnuc et iîvosprrc. HOBART TOWN, FRIDAY, APRIL 16. His EXCELLENCY the Lieutenant-Governor lias been pleased to acquiesce in the petition of the settlers on the banks of the Macquarie fer a reservation in per petuitm of Toombs' Marsh, as a basin for the supply of the river during- the Summer months. The long- marsh has also teen reserved for the same purpose. Owing to the plan adopted of damming the narrow nutlet of Toomba' Marsh, as suggested and contrived by Captain Cotton, the stream of the Macquarie has continued to flow most abundantly during the last summer months. It is now universally admitted to be a most admirable and useful undertaking', and when the works are further enlarged, the marsh will afford an ample source for the irrigation of all the lands on the borders of the river, the situation of which will admit of such a process. The attention of the settlers generally should be directed towards euch objects as thr.6e, because of the extreme drought which f...

I'll tell you. I am Captain Charles Napier, who2C years ago commanded the Recrui1 brig, in the West Indies, and who had the honour of being 24 hours under the guns of three French line-of-battle ships, flying from a British squadron, the nearest of which, with the exception of the Hawk brig, was from five to six miles astern the greatest part of the time. I kept flying double-shotted broadsides into them. One of these ships, the Hautpolt, only, was captured by the Pompey and Castor, the other two escaped by superior sailing. Sir Alexnnder Cochrane, my conimander-in-chief, promoted me on the spot into her. At the seize of Martinique, the JEolus, Cleopatra, and Recrui...
