The Courier. FRIDAY, JUNE 29, 1832. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 29 June 1832

The Courier. FRIDAY, JUNE 29, 1832. By the Resource we have had the pleasure to receive an accession to our English intelli- gence to the 1st week in March.of which we have given a copious summitry in this and our 4th page. The Reform bill had gonethrough'the discussions and modifications of the Committee in the House of Commons, and before thc end of the month it was anticipated it would have passed thc Lords, and become part of the re- formed law of the land. The cholera bad made its appearance in London, aud though in a very limited degree, the necessary prudent and precautionary measures of thc Govern- ment had contributed very much to aggravate the general distress in the quarantine restric- tions it imposed upon commerce. But the dis- ease having been declared not to be contagious and making its appearance in various remote places at once, where infection could not have communicated it, it was concluded they would be shortly removed. The trying months of January and February h...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. LIFE ASSURANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 29 June 1832

TO THE-EDITOR OF THE COURIER. LIFE ASSURANCE, S«n, Two letters have appeared in your newspa- per upon the subject of Life Assurance, bearing the signatare ' A True Friend,'and . containing calculations, as they are called, ^which must excite the surprise not only of those who are possessed of any information re- specting Life Assurance, but of all who are possessed of any tolerable knowledge of Arith metis, and who will take the trouble to investi- gate the calculations of this writer. The great importance of .the subject, aud the inte- rest which it at present excites, will berny apology for troubling you with the present let- ter, which may be of use to those or your read ers who have not calculated for themselves. In the second letter of' A True Friend,' (to which! shall at present confine myself,) he y/Eays, " The average decrement of life in any given number of individuals-?say 107), 1000, or 10,000in any oneyear, is now no' longer a problem difficult to find."?"

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND WESLEYAN SUNDAY SCHOOL UNION. (From a Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 29 June 1832

VAN DIEMEN S LAND Wb.si.byan Sunday School Union. . (From a Correspondent.) ".The report of the Anniversary of this use *ful Institution "which was held in the Wesley- an Chapel, Melville street, on Whit-Mon day las.r,'tias been- unavoidably delayed.

On Monday the children met on the ? school ground about 11 o'clock, in number above 200. In a short time they were brought into the chapel where they were publicly examined by >'t'te Rev. Mr. Turner, and gave'a pleasing proof of the diligence of the ?managers and teachers of the school j by answering scriptu- ral questions, reciting religious essays,-and reading the Bible, and other religious books. The best possible proof of this fact is, that se- veral of th...

CHOLERA MORBUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 29 June 1832

CHOLERA MORBUS. London, Feb. 28.- The new reform bill and cholera are the all absorbing subjects here, and as within the last 2 or 3 weeks the disor- der has been observed in London, the most absurd and childish alarm has seized the pub- lic, and apparently the Government, if one may judge by their late hasty precautionary mea- sures against the disease. And all this panic is created by 42 cases, out of which 25 have died, and these ridiculously small numbers in the most populous city in the world, have   frightened most people out of their wits, and caused the most ruinous restrictions and im- pediments to commerce, by the establishment of a useless but most mischievous quarantine. Indeed, the total number of cases over the whole kingdom, up to this day, is but 5038, of which only 1470 have died, and even many of these are doubted to be cholera by many me- dical men. The cholera morbus, as was to be expected, has now entered more intimately than before into our foreign...

REVOLT OF THE SLAVES IN JA- ft 3V1AICA. *' A Gazette extraordinary of the 22d Feb.* 'contains a long' despatch troth Lord Belmore to Lord Goderich, giving a painful narrative of a revolt.of the slaves in Jamaica. The ?insurrection was very general over the'wes- tern part of the colony, the negroes having unanimously resolved not t.> work on the estates after new year's day. By the prompt measures adopted, however, by the governor, and the( very prudent exertions of Sir Wil- loughby Cotton, with' the military, it was quelled before the date of Lord Belmore's despatch, .though' not till after many estates had been burned, and the ringleaders tried by court martial and shot. Sir Willoughby established hts head quar- ters at Montego Bay: The' militia 'of the is- land were called out. Colonel Grignon was attacked by a. Considerable force of the rebels, who advanced upon the troops under his com- mand in four columns. The soldiers returned the attack by a rapid fire, and the rebels wer...

Cfre Courier. \ FRIDAY. JULY 6,1832. * A' -**»**_-. .... 1 The editor of the Sydney Herald, In his number for thc 14th of June, has a long* ar- ticle on the subject of emigration, and thc difficulties usnally encountered by the newly arrived settler, for the removal of which he proposes, that a society shottldbe established in Sydney, to act in conjunction with the Emigration Committee appointed by the House of Commons. We are sorry to say, we differ with the writer in almost every point he has vorni mitti; adduced. Emigration is one of those things that ought to be left to take ita own course, without any interference of public bodies, but especially of thc government. The expe- rience of all ages, particularly of the present one in Van Dietncn's land establishes this position, and tuecliicf good jvhich thc labours of the ^emigration committee at home, or of our own colonial one here have, wc con- ceive, done, is the. bringing of this important truth more palpably before the author...
