CHURCH AT BOTHWELL. Revenue Office, 9th September, 1836. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 30 October 1840
CHURCH AT BOTHWELL. Revenue Office, 9th September, 1836. SIR,-In December, 1830, the Colonial Treasurer transmitted to me for collection the promissory notes passed by the indivi- duals, and further amounts stated at foot, being their subscrip- tions towards building a church and parsonage at Bothwell. Five only of the subscribers have paid, as per margin.* In 1831, the subscribers were called upon by me through Captain Wentworth, as Police Magistrate at Bothwell, to pay the amount of their subscriptions respectively, which those who did not pay declined doing on the ground that a parsonage had not been built, according to the tenor of the agreement. Again in February, 1833, I called upon two who had not paid to pay the amount of their subscriptions, which they declined doing on the grounds before stated : the matter was a subject of com- munication direct between the parties and your predecessor in office. On the 6th instant I wrote to the subscribers, whose promis- sory notes rema...

LATE NEWS FROM AMERICA. Ti» British Queen arrived at Portsmouth on the 16th June. She left New York at two in the after- noon on the 1st instant, and made the voyage in four- teen days fourteen hours less longitude.

TO TUE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. Sir,_I beg you will permit me the insertion of a few reinalks lu your paper in reply to nletlersigned Scrutator, winch appeared in the Courier of the Cth instant. The wntcr therein alludes at some length to the provisions of the Registry Act, which he states is only applicable to a country of numerous towns und villages and millions ot inhabitants. He ulso states, that an occupier of an house is liable to n penalty of ,£10 for not tra\elling in some cases an immense distance lo give notice of a birth or death. This last observation is calculated to mislead the public, the eighth section enacting thnt occupiers of bouses shall, under «i pcnnltv not exceeding £10, give notice of nnv birth or death occurring in their house, and surely giving notice cannot be interpreted by Sciutilor mto a nciebsity of travelling " souu times an unconscionable dis- tance of one hundred and fifty miles to (¡ne the notice required by the Act " A notice maybe legally, I con- c...
