TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 4 June 1841

TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. Sir,-Agreeably to the call made upon me by the writer of a letter in the Advertiser, signing himself " An Englishman," may I beg the favor of your giving the following remarks on his condemnation of the Hoad Act a place in your columns, which I think will satisfactorily prove I was justified in the re- marks I made upon it tit the New Norfolk meeting. It would be too tedious to give the paragraphs of the writer alluded to, but his letter can be easily referred to by those who take an in- terest in the subject. With reference to the 1 st section-It is true that the main and cross-roads nre the only public roads; but Idonotagree with bim that No. 38 section is a contradiction ; for if he will again refer to that section, he will find that it distinctly declares that the crossroads "shall be deemed and taken to be those which have been heretofore advertised as public roads in the Gazette &c, and which lead from township to township, or from a town-...

THE COURIER. Strenue of [?]rospere. HOBART TOWN, FRIDAY, JUNE 4. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 4 June 1841

THE COURIER. Stiemte rt ïJrospcir. HOBART TOWN, TRIDAY, JUNE 4. The arrivals from England have brought no des- patches. Captain Forster is busy in the organisation of the Probation parties. Mr. Surtees White and Mr. Chard, from Port Arthur, are to be appointed Superintendents under the new system. The salaries are fixed at £200 a year. We have received English journals, via Launces- ton, to the 18th of January. They do not contain any domestic news of more than common interest. The Revenue accounts for the quarter ending 5th January exhibit a decrease on the year of £254,009 as compared with the year preceding ; but upon the quarter as compared with the corresponding quarter of the previous year there is an increase of £80,602. TIte decrease is occasioned by the Post-office, in which thero is a falling- off of £1,078,000. On the other hand there is an increase in tho lixcise of £822,310 for the whole year, the last quarter of which exhibits over that of the quarter ending the former...

THE WEATHER. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 4 June 1841

THE WEATHER. On Sunday morning the Thermometer stood below zero. The temperature rose lo 2G and sank again in the course of the day, but on Moudiiy reached 34 degrees. Since theil the frost and thaw have struggled for Hie mastery, and have alternately assumed it, but the thuw and a higher temperature appear the victors. The daily papers represent the river as resembling the Polar Sea, and talk of wrecks caused by " icebergs" above bridge with an amusing naivete. The streets might, on tho smile grounds, be compared with the roads of Hanover. It would be bettei, however, to set u crowd of scavengers to work in cleaning them, than lo employ a multitude of scribbler» in railing at them. The severe frosts and heavy fall of snow (remarks the Worcester Journal) will prove most beneficial to the grow- ing crops, should no sudden and great change in the tem peinture take place. Owing to the extremely mild weather at the commencement of the year, the plant was beg!tilling to exhibit a tendenc...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 4 June 1841

TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. Sir,-As I sincerely desire the permanent good of this j colony, I was glad to hear that the Home Government, at I the suggestion of Captain Montagu, had not only deter« 1 mined to continue transportation to (his colony, but that two thousand free emigrants were to be imported in the course of this year-" But where are the ships, Mr. Editor f" Can you inform the colonists when they may be expected ? Land has been sold to the amount of one hundred and thirty thousand pounds, aud the money paid to the Government, a very small proportion of which sum has yet been appropriated to its only legitimate use, viz., the introduction of free labourers into the colony. It is true the local Government has engaged to pay a bounty on all introduced at the expense of the colonist*. I can- not understand why the Government of this colony do not introduce free labourers, as is done by the Government of New South Wales, unless it be an artful device tu transfer the burden ...

THE CHARTISTS. At the Chartist meeting laid on Monday in Bristol, Mr.   Henry Hunt (the son of John Frost) read a letter from his   father, in which he describes the situation of the political convicts in Van Diemen's Land. The following are ex- racts which will, we have no doubt, be read with interest   I am at Port Arthur, a place lo which the very worst of men are sent, and where human misery may be seen to probably its greatest extent I was not, however, sent here tor what is   called punishment the Governor told us repeatedly that we     were not sent to Port Arthur as a punishment, but to fill cer- tain offices.

SUDDEN DEATH OF ARCHDEACON HUTCHINS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 4 June 1841

SUDDEN DEATH OF ARCHDEACON HUTCHINS. It is our melancholy task to announce the sudden death of Archdeacon Hutchins, who expired this morning at about half-past six o'clock. About that time his servant heard a vio- lent ringing of the bell, and entering his bed-room found bim stretched with his face upon the floor. He raised him up on the bed, when he almost instantly expired. He was partly dressed, and was most probably in a stooping position when he was struck with a sudden fit of apoplexy. The shock was short and fatal. A deep-drawn sigh indicated the.last parting strug- gle with which his spirit passed from its corruptible mould of clay. In his death, Christianity has lost an upright, faithful, and conscientious servant, and the colony a warm supporter of its best and dearest interests; while to those who were numbered amongst the circle of his friends the bereavement will be the more keenly felt, when they reflect how difficult it will be to re- place in this little world of our...
