THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. MONDAY, MARCH 8. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 8 March 1841

THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. MONDAY, MARCH 8. English intelligence lias been received at HobartTown to tbe 1st November, the Lady jYugent, bound for New Zealand, having put in for water on tbe 27th February. The vessel, therefore, brought no mail for this colony. The Courier, however, supplies us with some infor mation, lrom wmen it would seem tbat the pro bability of war is now greater than ever. The Freuch ministry had broken up, owing lo some disunion between Iiouis Phillippe and M. Thiers,who, it appears, had suggested many warlike measures, and intended to oppose the ministry, who had merely prepared a temperate manifesto. The voice of M. Thiers is still for war, and -it was -thought that he would have sufficient influence to carry with him the ma ioritv ofthe Chambers. This is the present state of affairs. If M. Thiers can succeed in inveigling the French Chambers over to his opinions, hostilities may he said lo be inevitable, and indeed it is stated that 'M. Thiers had publicly bo...

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 8 March 1841

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. We have papers from this quarter to the 17th of February. We find the following in the   South Australian Register. The Ville de Bor- deaux is still cruising about Bass's Straits, and as we are informed by those who have boarded her, no satisfactory explanation has ever been given by tbe officers as to what are their inten- tions, although the question was repeatedly pressed upon them. " A circumstance which may lead to very se- rious consequences has just occured. The French ship Ville de Bourdeaux arrived at Holdfast Bay a few days ago, from Swan River or King George's Sound, on her way to Circular Head. She called here to ascertain if stock could be purchased in the colony. Advantageous ar- rangements for the shipment of a large quantity of sheep were understood to be made, and the ship was about to take her cargo on board, when, on Saturday last, she was seized by order, we understand, of the Collector of Customs ; and on the following day, she went...

THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. MONDAY, MARCH 15. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 15 March 1841

THE UUUCESTON COURIER. MONDAY, MARCH 15. Upon the first establishment of the Union Bank, ten thousand shares were reserved for distribution in ahe colonies. It was thought, however, that of these not more than four thou sand would be placed in the colonies, and the Inspector recommended the London directors to issue three thousand shares at once in Eng land. Out of the shares originally reserved for the colonial market, four thousand tno hun ched and five were subsequently disposed of amongst the English proprietary at par. At this the colonial shareholders expressed consi derable dissatisfaction, and a correspondence ensued, which lias led to the following results. A circular has been recently distributed by the Inspector at Sydney to each of the share holders, informing them that, at the second annual meeting of the proprietors, held in June last, it was resolved that the capital of the bank should be encreased to £800,000, by the crea tion of twelve thousand new shares.

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 15 March 1841

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. Sir,— I have often heard ladies bitterly complain of having lent books, and the borrowers forgetting to return them From this cause a number of odd volumes accu mulate in most libraries, principally from the circum stance of the lender not malcine a memorandum at the time, of the name of the party to whom they were lent, or through the negligence of the borrower in not restor ing them to the owner. I therefore strongly recom mend your fair readers to adopt the following hint to booklcnders: — ' A certain lady of rank writes on the head or title pages of all her books which are likely to be borrowed by her friends, ' Stolen/ram Lady E.F.B.' This has an extraordinary effect. Contrary to all estab lished custom, the books'are returned as soon as read, it being obvious to retain them would be to verify the foregoing mystic words.' Yours, Sir, A BoOKWORK.

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 15 March 1841

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. Sir— The practice of hiring a horse and taking what is termed ' ten shillings' worth out of him' has become so common a practice in Van Diemen's Land, that 1 question if some of our livery stable keepers do not in many instances suffer loss ; however, for the informa tion of bona fide travellers, who are sometimes com pelled by circumstances to ride at an unusual rate, or, perhaps, obliged to make use of a bad saddle, thereby galling the horse's back, that under similar circum stances 1 have found no application in such cases suc ceed so well as white lead moistened with milk. When milk cannot be procured, oil may be substituted. Whenever the application has been made at an early stage of the wound, I have always found it very effective and likewise a very convenient one, as two ounces of white lead is sufficient for several horses for a month or six weeks. 1 am, Sir, Your's, &c, Fetlock.

NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 15 March 1841

NEW ZEALAND.

How they will manam- fhr- N vexed question of titles to land, remains to be seen ; but ! one thing is evident, that Lord John Russell and his Excellency Sir George Gipps have taken very different notions of some of the leading principles upon which that question must ultimately be decided.

SEIZURE OF THE FRENCH SHIP. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 15 March 1841

SEIZURE OF THE FRENCH SHIP. " It is with deep concern that we feel ourselves com- pelled again to refer to the seizure of the Ville de Bor- deaux, French merchant vessel, and to denounce in the strongest terms the gross, unprecedented, and illegal conduct of our custom house authorities on the subject. Since our last, the ship has been formally taken pos- session of and taken into the river; and when the par- ties demand on what ground, by whose orders, or under whose authority the rights of the French nation are thus invaded in the harbours of a colony belonging to Great Britain— no plea is alleged for seizing her— in fact, no answer whatever — no satisfaction whatever is to be obtained. The objects of the voyage are frustrated— the private property of the foreign owner is unwarrantably deteriorated— and the crowning wrong of all, the seizure and destruction of the flocks of a colonist, stubbornly persisted in, without the means, so far as we see, of ob- taining on the spot that pr...
