MARKETS. Hobart Town Markets, October 26. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 27 October 1840
MARKETS. Hobart Town Markets, October 20. It is difficult in the present state of the wheat market to quote any fixed amount for this grain. Every holder just now fixes his own price according as he is disposed to think it worth his while to sell or to hold. The fact is, that many of the settlers with last year's wheat on hand assert honestly enough, (we say nothing about the wisdom) that it is not worth the trouble of delivering under 10s, and therefore they hold on. The present quotation in the market is from 7s 6d to 9s. We have not heard of any large quantities exchanging hand however at the latter price, while we do know of some having been sold for cash at 6s 9d. In the vegetable market the supply is abundant, and new po- tatoes, turnips, and gooseberries made their first appearance on Saturday morning ; we understand they were principally from the gardens of Mrs. Harrison and Mr. Parker, of Sandy Bay. They sold at the following rates :-New potatoes, 4d perrlb; gooseberries, 6...
THE COURIER. S[?] et Prospere. HOBART TOWN, TUESDAY, OCTOBER 27. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 27 October 1840
THE COURIER. Jfctrcnuc et Vrosprrr. HOBART TOWN, TUESDAY, OCTOBER 27. We have received English intelligence to the end of June. Transportation is to be continued to Tas- mania Peninsula and the unsettled districts of this colony. Two thousand convicts are to be sent here in the course of this year, commencing from the first of August last, the greater part of whom will be available for labour on the roads. The only practical objection to the working of the Road Act is thus re- moved, and the cost of making and repairing the roads will fall comparatively light on the country districts. We insert a letter signed Vinùex dementia, pro- fessing to clear up the mystery attending the pardon of Currie, and to explain the motives which actuated the Executive in exercising the prerogative of mercy in his instance. We know not whether we are to take these reasons, since they conic to us in an anonymous shape, as in any way binding upon au- thority, for it is just possible, that as soon as we h...
TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 27 October 1840
TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. Sir, - Having read your remarks on His Excellency having exercised the prerogative of mercy towards Currie, as you conceive improperly, and being aware that His &nbsp; Excellency would not condescend to explain the motives of his conduct when so challenged, I impose on myself the task of explaining this great mystery, as well because it reflects honour on His Excellency's judgment that he granted a pardon to Currie, as also because it will serve to relieve the public mind from an impression which may have been made upon it, as it seems to have been on yours, that the administration of justice has, in this case, been treated with something like contempt. You may remember that Currie was indicted for murder caused by wounds and bruises: that two medical men who saw the body, differed in their opinion as to whether death was caused by these wounds and bruises. They were described to the jury in the hearing of two very eminent men, one a surgeon, th...

DOCUMENTS RELATING TO THE BOTHWELL CHURCH CASE. Cluney Park, 22nd January, 1828. Sir,-In furtherance of your intention to erect a Chapel in the Township of Bothwell, I have called upon some mechanics to ascertain the probable expense, and beg leave to state, for your information, that an excellent mason will undertake to quarry the stones, and erect a building 40 feet by 21 in the clear, and 13 feet high, having gables and windows with Gothic arches, for about five and forty (45) pounds : the roofing, gashes, and door would cobt about thirty more, and the sawing and glasing five and twenty : so that a neat substantial stone Chapel may be covered in for about one hundred pounds, pro- vided the people will agree to cart the materials free of expense. A smtill subscription in ninney will also be ne. cessnry to plaster and fit up the interior. With a view to procure the co-operation of the inhabi. tants of the settlement, I called upon Captain Wood, who is the principal personage here,a...

THE COURIER. âtmiue et ^lospcrr. HOBART TOWN, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 30. WE have been favoured with an English paper, (the latest we believe in the Colony,) of the 7th July, from which we give copious extracts. The weather at the commencement of July had set in, instead of hot and sultry days such as are usual in the " dog days" at home, with very boisterous winds accompa- nied with rain ; it was not such however as to cause any fear of the result to the crops. TO-MORROW the Richmond Meeting is held on the subject of the Road Act. Why is it that public feeling or opinion has been so long asleep while the clauses of this Act were passing through the Legis- lative Council, and why is it, that at the last stage, and at more than the eleventh hour towards the mid- night gloom that it is presumed tiro Road Act will bring down upon our heads, it has been found neces- j sary to arouse us to a sense of the impending danger by means of a Public Meeting, and a few rattling and hollow phrases about t...

BALL TO CAPTAINS ROSS AND CROZIER, AND THE OFFICERS OF II. M. S. " EREBUS" AND " TERROR." The 29th being the day fixed for this Ball taking ! place, the town, as usual on such occasions, was dis- turbed from its uniform aspect of settled dullness, and several fair faces from the country enlivened our streets, and began to impart a little of the animation and freshness of feeling, which belong to youth and beauty, to our more demure oppidans ; so that " the pressure of the Money Market," and the bad prices of wool and oil, were all forgotten in the gaiety of the occasion, and all ranks of men turned with a grateful pleasure to the opportunity afforded them of testi- fying their esteem and regard, no less personally to- wards the distinguished sons of science now amongst them, than respect for the objects of the important expedition in which these gentlemen are engaged, involving, as it does, a mighty problem of science, the result of which may rank amoug the greatest &nbsp; d...
SHIPPING INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 30 October 1840
SHIPPING INTELLIGENCE. Thursday Morning, October 29-Our reporter was abruptly seized hy the ana this morning in proceeding as usual to obtain the shipping intelligence from the Tort Office, by n constable, and the door of this public office was subsequently found to be locked. We. notice this circumstance to advise all gentlemen in authority, and all Ball Committees, to bear in mind that they have no right to interrupt persons obtaining commercial intel- ligence for the benefit of the public ; and that pleasure ought not to be allowed to interfere with business. But for the polite attention of a gentleman, connected with the press, we should have been without our usual shipping intelligence. The ex- pense and trouble attendant upon the management of a public Journal, are quite sufficient without subjecting reporters to be insolently stopped by convict constables who know not how to discharge their duty with propriety, and to whom civility or politeness arc terms unknown.
