INSOLVENT COURT. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 7 May 1841
INSOLVENT COURT. Nothing of any particular importance occurred on Wed- nesday in this Court, the business being chiefly occupied with the proof of debts. In the cuse of Air. Warburn, Mr. Dobson applied for the deliver« of goods to the amount of upwards of £2000,which had been consigned to the insol- vent, prior to his insohency, by Messrs. Smith and Co., of Sydney, and were still in Mr. Warham's possession. Mr. Perry, for the assignees, contended that the Commis- sioner could nut interfere ; Mr. Warham had been ap- pointed hy the assignees to collect the debts due to the estate, and, with (heir concurrence and advice, he had claimed a commission of 2J per cent, upon the goods in question, according to the custom amongst merchants. The assignees were quite witling tu deliver up the goods as soon ns the Commissioner was paid, but not otherwise. After some further observations to asimilar effect, His Honor declined lo interfere, hut, at the request of Mr. Hobson, he consented to consid...

SUPREME COURT-CIVIL SIDE. Sitting» in Banco, In re Macdowell ». Robertson. Mr. Sydney Stephen appeared for the plaintiff, to su. port a demurrer to certain pleas filed by the defendant ia answer to the plaintiff's declaration. The learned counsel contended that the pleas were bad, and presented no answer to the alleged charge. Mr. Robertson appeared ¡a person, and after requesting the indulgence of their Honors, as being unacquainted w,ilh legal technicalities, proceeded to argue that in accord- ance with the declaration the pleas were good, and full? bore out his justification. He hoped their Honors would look at the whole of the libel before they delivered their judgment, for he had in thal Court heard a meaning giren to words of which he had never even dreamt; in fact, the article complained of was a reply to another article wbirj' appeared in the Courier, and had reference to bit (&lt;*'' ant's) pecuniary affairs. The Chief Justice could uot do any f"a thingi ^¿L his Hon...
INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 7 May 1841
INDIA. Military Intelligence.-We understand that Captain G. A. Underwood is likely to be appointed as Chief Engineer to the Forces in China, under the command of Sir Hugh Gough, K.C.B.-Madras Athenäum, Dec. 29. Many speculations having lately been offered re- specting the movements of the Engineer in Chief, the following statement may not be uninteresting, and we have reason to consider it authentic. Orders were, we believe, received by Colonel Monteith to suspend his leave for the present, in consequence of employ- ment on particular duty ; as from the number of officers absent on Foreign Service, at home, or sick in India, none were left disposable for such duty. Colonel Monteith has in consequence withdrawn his leave, and will not probably leave the country till the close of the ensuing year 1841.-Madras Spectator, December 30. Nusseer Khan and the Brahoe Rebels. Since the affair at Kotra, we have had little informa- tion of any moment, connected with Nusseer Khan and the Brahoe ...

THE COURIER. Strenue et Prospere. HOBART TOWN, FRIDAY. MAY 7. We find in a December number of the Times, that Commodore D'Urville, who was here some time since in command of the French Expedition, consisting of the Astrolabe and Zélée, and whose account of the discovery of the Southern Continent we published in the Courier, has been promoted to the rank of Rear Admiral. Great Britain we are sure will not be behindhand in awarding similar honors of promotion to all the officers engaged in the present expedition under the command of Captain Ross, whose discoveries promise such splendid results to the scientific world. His Excellency the Lieutenant-Governor has, we are rejoiced to hear, resolved upon having a bridge thrown over the Derwent at Bridgewater Ferry, which is to be constructed with piles, the report of those en- gaged in ascertaining the qualities of the bed of the river having, as we understand, proved favorable to the practicability of such an undertaking.

SPIRIT OF THE ENGLISH PRESS. EMIGRATION TO CANADA. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 7 May 1841
SPIRIT OF THE ENGLISH PRESS. EMIGRATION TO CANADA. Our fellow subject« in Upper Canada would seem to be earnestly engaged in the laudable work of pro- moting emigration from the mother-country to our North American dominions. To England such a movement is of vast importance. It is of infinite moment to England that her power should be sus- tained unimpaired in that quarter of the globe. The United States-or at least the democratic party in the United States-have long calculated that the Canadas must in the course of things form part of the federal union. The retention of the Canadas by England has, in fact, been long looked on by the more violent federalists as an act of usurpation. And unless hitherto-untried methods shall be brought into operad tion with theyview of strengthening British interests throughout those noble provinces, no one may ven- ture to prophecy extended duration to British supre- macy there. Emigrants from England have, long, been in the habit of taking refuge i...

PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 7 May 1841
PORT PHILLIP. The Magistracy.—On Monday last Mr. Justice Willis adverting to his remarks on a previous sitting of the Court relative to the attendance of the Magistracy of this province, expressed his regret that his suggestions had not been attended to. His Honor said he saw by the Act 9 Geo. IV., c. 64 & 65, that he was empowered to inflict a penalty for non-attendance. "These Magistrates," said &nbsp; His Honor, "do not appear to understand their duty; it &nbsp; &nbsp; is a fine thing, no doubt, to have J. P. affixed to one's name, but it is an honour for which a man should do his duty, and I am resolved they shall do their duty, else I shall recommend that their names be struck out of the commission, and others appointed in their stead."—Port Phillip Patriot, April 20.
