SPIRIT OF THE ENGLISH PRESS. THE REPEALERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 27 April 1841
SPIRIT OF THE ENGLISH PItESS. THE REPEALERS. "'NORTHERN WHIG.-In the repeal address three' «erious'charges are made against the people of Eng - land ; and it is worth while to refer to them separately, and to show how far they are consistently urged :-1st. ? It is said that " a'flagrant breach of the constitution -was committed by a liberal Government;" that " they introduced -and carried through the House the Coer- cion Bill of infamous memory ;" and it is charged against the English people that they did nothing for Ireland in that case, but that some of them " even pe- titioned for the bill to pass." Now, that it was an " in- famous" bill we readily admit ; but let it be recol- lected, that after it had expired it was re-introduced with modifications, and was then supported by Mr. O'Connell, Mr. Sharman Crawford being one of the very few Irishmen who gave itany opposition. -Why did the Repealers, when assailing the peoplo of Eng- land, keep back this fact ? 2d.-The repeal address ...

CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 27 April 1841
CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. A letter from the Tarka of the 4th instant, states : -" During the late harvest considerable damage was done by the rupture of a cloud :-From Schaap Kraal, (now " Prospect,") the flood swept away thousands of sheaves of wheat, which the proprietor had great difficulty in obtaining hands to reap. Those em- ployed were paid three shillings per day, with plenty of food, tea, coffee, &c. The pasturage here abun- dant and healthy : even the milch cows with calves are in condition for slaughter." Another hand-writing from the same quarter, under date the 12th instant, states : " The country is in a dreadful state, not so much for the want of labourers, as labour. To my know- ledge there are this year thousands of good woolled sheep carrying their last year's fleeces, and I consider myself particularly fortunate in getting together about half the assistance I want to do the ordinary work on this beautiful estate. It Í6 distressing to see hordes of vagabonds rovin...
WORTHY THE ATTENTION OF EMIGRANTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 27 April 1841
WORTHY THE ATTENTION OF EMIGRANTS. The contract for the supply of Rations to the Troops stationed on this Frontier for the ensuing year, has been taken by the Firm of J. D. Norden and Co., at the rate of 3±d. per ration-a rate lower than in any other colony under the.Crown, ft should be bora« in mind, that the soldiers ration consists of Hb. of bre i and lib. of fresh meat. That the former must be of good meal from which l-7th of the pollard is ex traded, and that the latter is to be issued in the pro" I portion of 5-7ths beef, and 2-7ths mutton, and thatt*? this there is the usual proportion of fuel and candle«* When it is considered that this ration ia supplied at the low rate of 3¿d., it will be at once seen that tiri country may well challenge comparison with an» colony in the world, for the abundance and cheatu ness of all the necessaries- of life. ^ It may well, however, be asked how it is that wh¡|B the troops are supplied at so cheap a rate, the pub]¡» should be paying 2d. a...
THE CABINET. PALESTINE. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 27 April 1841
THE CABINET. PALESTINE. Oh land of Canaan-pleasant land I With milk and honey once o'erflowing Where once the rose of Sharon bloomed. Where white flowered myrtles once were growing I All dreary now and desolate The olive and the cheering vine, Arc trampled down by ruthless feet, Ah woe is mc fur Palestine 1 In untamed majesty erect Still rise the peaks of Lebanon, In wreath of snow and cypress dad, But all the cedar trees are gone I (a) Tlie surges still unwearied beat Where Carmel rears his rugged brow, But now no prophet seer ascends To watch the cloud arriving slow I Yet it shall rise-yet it shall spread, Though small at first an infant's hand Yet it shall rise, and spread and cheer With genial showers the drooping lamil Strong is the LORD-His word is sure I Strong is the Loan-and He hath sworn The rose shall bud and blossom yet, Where rankle now the briar and thorn. The Gentile nations plot and plan And Kings combine-and armies move-« Blind fools !-they little know what arm Is r...
KENSINGTON POLICE REPORT, For the weet ending 24th April, 1841. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 27 April 1841
KENSINGTON POLICE REPORT, For the weet ending 24th April, 1841. Henry Upton, charged by sub-district constable Wilkin- son with being drunk at past ten o'clock on Saturday night; he had received a dreadful bealing from some unknown hand, as shown by one eye being closed. A night's lodging in the watch-house and a flue of 5s. were the results of this man's intemperance. Six other cases of drunkenness, in which the parlies pleaded guilty, were disposed of by fines of 5s. each, one moiety to Her Majesty the Queen, and the other to the apprehending constables. The above is a most unusual number for this generally quiet and orderly district, embracing as it dues so large a population, and, with two exceptions, they were all Saturday night's excesses. Dennis Buckley, charged by Henry Upton with robbing him of his handkerchief on Saturday night. The Sunday morning's account however was so very different, that he was released without bail ; but on the Monday morn- ing's enquiry it appeared ...
IMPORTANT NEWS FROM CHINA. HOSTILITIES AT THE BOGUE. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 27 April 1841
IMPORTANT NEWS FROM CHINA. HOSTILITIES AT THE BOGUE. On Wednesday, Jan. 6th, it became known here, in consequence of letters having been received from the squadron at the Bogue, that the last term again granted to the Chinese for complying with the demands of the English had expired, and that useless negotiations would give way to warlike demonstrations ; and on Thursday, at midnight,' the arrival of H. M. cutter Louisa from the Bogue, confirmed these news, by bridging despatches from Captain Elliott, of which the following was made known to the British commu- nity on Friday morning, the 8th : - CIRCULAR. To H. B. M. Subjects resident in Macao. Negotiations having boen interrupted, the positions of Chu enpee and Ty-coclc-tow were simultaneously attacked this morn- ing by sea and land, and have both fallen to H. M. arms.

FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. FRANCE. DEBATE ON THE ADDRESS IN THE CHAMBER 07 DEPUTIES. We resume our outline from last Saturday's column, which brought the debate down to Thursday afternoon, when Mauguin was left speaking. " Let us show ourselves," concluded he, " in all the great- ness of France and confide in her destiny, which will suffice to repair all past evil." (Applausefrom the Left, and cries of" la dolare ! la dolare! ' from all parts of the Chamber.) Bechard mounted the tribune, and, unfolding a London p¡iper, read a letter from Marshall Soult courting an alliance with England, " which,'' said Bechard, " was injurious to the dignity and interests of France." Marshal Soult rose in reply : The correspondence which has just been read (he remarked) was strictly confidential, and eau only have been made public through some act of indiscretion, of which I knew not the source. As to the sentiments expressed in that letter, I take pride in having uttered them (approbation). I have conte...
