THE COURIER. srtrcnuf et prospere. HOBART TOWN, FRIDAY, APRIL 23. THE uncertainty which existed about the disposal of prisoners lias not been dispelled by the late arrivals from England. On the contrary, as fur as we can leam, the period of probation as it is called is indefinitely postponed until it suit the Secretary of State either to restrict the time himself or intro- duce a measure into Parliament, giving a discre- tionary power to the Lieutenant-Governor to grant indulgencies after such periods as he may deem fit. Under such circumstances of uncertainty and doubt, the most moderate calculation which we can make of the time when the labour of the prisoner population will be available upon a regulated scale of wages assignment being for ever put an end to-will be three years from this date; and in the mean time, in the existing pressure of ihe labour market, which is undeniably great, and likely to become more urgent from this total stoppage of all the sources of supply which h...
COLONIAL MAGAZINE. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 23 April 1841
COLONIAL MAGAZINE. WE have received the November and December numbers of the Colonial Magazine, edited by Mr. Montgomery Martin. The first contains a beautifully executed engraving of the fort and harbour of Bey- rout, in the coast of Syria, which has been the scene of some of the late operations of the British fleet. The December number is adorned with a finely exe- cuted head of Mehemet Ali with a flowing white beard. The features of the face are broad and bold, but there is an expression of cunning about the eye which is indicative of the character of the crafty ruler of Egypt. The articles contained in these two numbers are of a varied character. For the present we shall con- tent ourselves with noticing the continuation of some papers on Van Diemen's Land. The writer gives an account of his tour to the Lakes, in 1830, and 31. He was accompanied by Mr. R. Patterson and Mr. Tod. In the meantime, however, as it may be grati- fying to many of our colonists, as it must doubtless be ...

EGYPT. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 27 April 1841
EGYPT. On the 22d of November the " Caméléon" steamer, from Toulon, reached Alexandria with despatches, under the charge of the Marquis de Beaufort, for the Pacha; Captain II. Maunsell, of the " Rodney," an old acquaintance of the Pacha, with despatches from Commodore Napier, had arrived the night before, and had an audience with the Pacha, at which he wore a sword presented to him by Mehemet eight years ago. Napier was off the port, and the Pacha was anxious to show his state of preparation for a siege. Four hundred pieces of cannon bore upon the sea ; the walls and forts were manned ; and on Fort Caffarelli the Pacha had built a look out, from whence he might, in case of need, direct operations. On the other hand, the allies were not idle. The " Medea," under a flag of truce, took soundings, close ashore, from the palace to the lighthouse points. Napier and Captain Warder, of the " Medea," with Captain Martin, of the "Carysfort," strolled through the town and marked the position o...
ENGLISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 27 April 1841
ENGLISH EXTRACTS. FUNERAL OF NAPOLEON.-The awkward position f^f M. Guizot, some passages of whose writings are ailed to mind by these ceremonies, is a subject of Bemark by his enemies in the press. The Courier ^¡"raneáis, in commenting upon a report which had ap Teared in the Temps, that M. Guizot, upon the pre ext of bad health, was about to quit Paris during the pproaching funeral ceremony, adds that in contra- cting this report, and announcing his intention of Baking his place among the other Ministers upon the Uccasion, M. Guizot, the visiter of Louis the Eighteenth t Ghent, shows less good taste and tact than he .ould in abstaining from being present. The Cont- uerce is still more bitter : " The Moniteur de Grand of the 13th of June, 815 (five days before the battle of Waterloo) describes S throne erected upon the Champ de Mars for the ¡.ote of the new Constitutions of the Empire, and adds "he words-. The Prince and nobles of the new mpire are already appearing upon the theatre...

WESTERN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 27 April 1841
WESTERN AUSTRALIA. THE Scout, just arrived from Swan River, brings us ewe from Western Australia up to the 20th of March : K ¡s now determined, it seems, lo remove the Survey n sent out to the neighbourhood of Leschenault, some lonths back, to form the proposed settlement of Austra ¡nd, to a grant obtained from the Crown, situated in the Icinilyof Port Grey, midway between the River Arrow, mith and Ganthourue Bay, distunt from Perth about 200 liles to the northward. This change has arisen from lie lands assigned to Colonel Latour, at Leschenault, und old by him to the Australind Company, having been esunied by the Colonial Government. The Perth Gazette speaks of this change as having been dopled at the recommendation of Captain Gre\, and oniplains of the port having been called Port Grey, as a ¡ere of presumption-it being notorious that it was cither discovered nor yet visited by that gentleman-he ¡aving only passed several miles inland-seeing around lim good grass, and the appearan...
