INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 30 April 1841
J NDIA. We have received per the Indus, Calcutta papers to the 17th January, from which we make a few extracts : Three vessels, with 5000 Portuguese soldiers, have just arrived at Goa, from Europe. They have had a long and tedious passage, having put off con- siderable time at Mozambique. A fracas, which at one time assumed rather a serious aspect, lately occurred betwixt the Governor and the Commander of the French armed corvette Dordogne. As for- merly intimated, the Governor of Goa issued an order that no French or English vessels should be permitted to remain ¡it Goa so long as there might be a likelihood of war between England and France The order to this effect had been issued in somewhat more peremptory and impeiious terms than the French commander cared for, concluding with a threat of forcible expulsion unless it was immedi- ately complied with. The reply to this was, that if the Governor of Goa meant to compel a French ship of war to leave his shire, when she was not so di...

CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 30 April 1841
CHINA, WR inserted in our la^t number the latest intclh- j gencc from China, by which it appears that the term of the truce having expired without iny satisfactory result, operations were again commenced by the British fleet and two forts battered down, with a con- siderable loss on the part of the Chinese. All ac- counts, however, represent them to have displayed more courage than wo had been previously induced to give them credit for. In the midst of ¿>udi success another terni of truce was demanded by the Chinese and granted by the English ambassador It is but another pre e-a for delaj, and wc are only surprised that so much time has been already wasted m the same fruitless negotiations.

SKETCH OF THE LIFE OF M. THIERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 30 April 1841
SKETCH OF THE LIFE OF M. THIERS. The late prime minister of France is the son of a locksmith at Marseilles, beneath whose humble roof he first saw the light on the 16th of April, 1797. His woiner belonged to an old commercial family, which in the vicissitudes of time had fallen into ex- treme poverty, and the young*"Lôuis " Adolphe was placed by her relatives in*the Imperial Lyceum of Marseilles, where he received the early part of his education. He is reported to have achieved many victories over his young competitors before the year 1815, when he proceeded to Aix for the purpose of pursuing the study of the law. There he formed his friendship with M. Mignef, afterwards the concise and philosophic historian of the same event which has exercised his own talents. The two friends pur- sued a similar couse of study, their favourite pursuits of literature, philosophy, and history, giving place to just so much of the digest and civil code as would enable them to pass their examinations. ...
THE CABINET. HYMN OF THE UNIVERSE. PARAPHRASED FROM GOETHE. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 30 April 1841
THE CABINET. HYMN OF THE UNIVERSE. PARAPHRASED FROM GOETHE. Koli on, thou Sun I for ever roll, Thou giant, rushing through the heavens ! Creation's wonder, nature's soul I Thy golden wheels by angels driven ; The planets die without thy blaze, And Cherubim with stardropt wing, Float in thy diamond-sparkling rays, Thou brightest emblem of their King! Roll, lovely Earth I and still roll on, With ocean's azure beauty bound ; While one sweet star, the pearly moon, Pursues thee through the blue profound ; And angels with delighted eyes Behold thy tints of mount and stream, From the high wall of paradise; Swift whirling like a glorious dream. Roll, Planets ! on your dazzling road, For ever sweeping round the sun ; What eye beheld «hen first you glowed, What eye shall see your courses done 1 Roll in your solemn Majesty, Ye deathless splendours of the skies! High altars, from which angels see The incense of creation rise. Roll, Comets 1 and ye million stars I Ye that through boundless natur...

ADELAIDE PRESS. BANKING IN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 30 April 1841
ADELAIDE PRESS. BANKING IN AUSTRALIA. WK think there can be no surer test of the pios perity of any country than the success and stability of the banking establishments connected with it ; and it cannot but be gratifying to the friends of South Australia to learn that both the banks in Adelaide are exhibiting decided successful results in the simul- taneous propositions which have been made to in- crease their capital stock. The Bank of South Aus- tralia, we believe, has added largely to its capital, while that of Australasia has increased, or intends to increase, to the large sum of £1,200,000. We have been kindly favoured with the following return, which, as showing the returns of a single bank, is of great commercial and statistic.il value : RETURN of the Aggregate Average Amount of the Lhibi. lilias and Assets of the Bank of Australasia, as well in England as in the Australasian Colonies, from the Ißth day of April, 1839, to the lit h day of October, 1839. £ s. d Bills in circul...
SYDNEY PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 30 April 1841
SYDNEY PRESS. T.HK WOOL TRADE.-We have been favoured wtlii an extract front a letter which contains Borne very important suggestions, to which we wish to call the particular attention of our colonial flockmasters : A litige pioporlion of Mr. Scott's wool came to Hud. dersu'eld, purchased by a friend uf mine, and I consider it well suited for combing, provided it be well washed. You must always bear in mind that greasy wool will nut comb. The wool trade of New South Wales is conducted by in- dividuals who know nothing, or al least very little, of the trade. The whole, on arrival in London or Liverpool, is put info a broker's hand, and .they are allowed to take such sized samples as their conscience may dictate. After the last series uf sales one of iheae knights of the hammer sold a parcel from samples, equal to a moderate Colonial clip. The stales are always announced when a sufficient quantity arrives, without reference to prices or future .prospects. The -German wool trude was at ...
THE COURIER. S[?] [?]t Prospere. HOBART TOWN, FRIDAY, APRIL 30. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 30 April 1841
THE COURIER. Simiue et Drosperr, HOBART TOWN, FRIDAY, APRIL 30. MR. KERR has accepted the vacant seat in the Legislative Council. -It is said that Mr. -Kerr at- tempted to stipulate for resuming- his orig-inal position in the Council ; but surely this can never have been the case ; for the very assertion of such a condition must have been treated by the Lieutemnt-Governor as a refusal of the office. At least this is the inference which every ninety-nine out of a hundred would draw. We observe the Launceston Advertiser is complain- ing that a member is not to be chosen from that side, thus admitting- that the Council contains within it a representative principle. The complaint is not un- reasonable. BY an order of the Chief Police Magistrate the Police constables of the district of Hobart Town are to be reduced in number from one hundred and eleven to vne hundred and three. Of these, ticenty-fioe are to be appointed senior constables, and their pay is to be raised from one and ninepe...
