The Courier. THURSDAY EVENING, AUGUST 22, 1839. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 23 August 1839

The Courier.     THURSDAY EVENING, AUGUST 22,1839.   WE this week subjoin, according to our pro- mise, the evidence taken before the Board which lately sat at the Orphan Schools, together with the Report itself, in order that the public may form their own conclusions upon the right which we have exercised in condemning that document, as apologetic in its nature - as repugnant to the evidence adduced - as blinking the merits of the question - and insidiously proceeding upon false grounds, calculated to mislead the   judgment from an impartial view of the inquiry. But they have walked over ashes where con- concealed fires have lain - " incedis per ignes sup pósitos cineri doloso" - they have consequently burned the soles of their feet; and not all their   hopping or capering can save them from the penalty of their presumption, and the universal obloquy of an insulted community.

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 30 August 1839

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. I We are rejoiced to hear that the fishery at Encounter" Ray is proceeding most prosperously, nearly 300 tuns of oil having been already obtained. A fact connected with it has been communicated to us which is of an interesting and not unimportant nature. It appears that a boat is employed in the fishery which is entirely manned with natives. They take their part in the occupation equally with the white men, and arc found to be not less expert than they. If the aboriginal inhabitants are competent to this laborious species of employment, what should prevent their being rendered efficient in many other paths of in dustry?-Southern Australian, August 7. We beg to call the attention of the government to a matter which we conceive to be of very great importance to this colony. A French vessel is now stationed at En- counter Bay, and engaged in the whale fishery. This is a circumstance which, ne think, demands the decided and prompt interference of the authorities here.

CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. PORT NATAL. (From the Zuid Afrakaan of the 24th May) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 30 August 1839

CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. | PORT NATAL. (From the Zuid Afrakaan of the 24th May J The information received from Port Natal, is most satisfactory. It appears that H.M.S. Le- veret, from Mauritius, touched for a couple of hours at Port Natal, and kindly brought some letters from the passengers of the schooner Eleanora, belonging to the « Handel Maats chappy,' which left this bay about two months ago. We have been favoured with the following extracts of letters, from which it will appear that our emigrated countrymen are in a thriving con- dition, and aro preparing themselves for another attack upon Dingaan. The only article we hear they are in want of, is seed wheat, in other respects they are well off. We may look forward to a more full and detailed report of their situation, as the letters now received were written in a haste, and at a spur of the moment. This, the first coasting vessel belonging to, and freighted by, Dutch born colonists, and com- manded by a Dutch born colonist, proceedi...

DINNER AT THE MANSION-HOUSE. SIR F. BURDETT AND LORD NORMANBY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 30 August 1839

DINNER AT THE MANSION-HOUSE. | Sin F. BÜIIDETT AND LORD NORMANBY. | i In the course of the evening, the Lord Mayor proposed the health of Sir Francis Burdett. «« We understood him," says the Times, " to commence with an attack upon the foreign policy of the country." This was pretty well for a beginning. The sympathy between the Lord Mayor's courtesy in proposing the health of Sir Francis, and the foreign policy of the country is certainly not very apparent ; but " when the wine is in the wit is out." From the foreign policy it was an obvious and an easy transition to the domestic policy ; and after assuring his hearers that there was nothing novel which any man of common sense could say on the former subject, (which was only an additional reason why they should expect something novel from him,) he proceeded to assail the administration of Lord Normanby. We give this passage in the words of the report to which we have already referred. He was sorry, he said, to have to allude to the...

GOVERNMENT MEMORANDUM. (From the Government Gazette of May 24.) EDUCATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 30 August 1839

I GOVERNMENT MEMORANDUM. j (From the Government Gazette of May 24. J EDUCATION. On the arrival of His Excellency, Major-General Sir George Napier, to assume the government of this colony, his attention was speedily drawn to the defective and inefficient state of the Government Schools whiclf had been established in the several districts, and His Excel- lency, lost no time in representing to" HerJiMajesty's Government the necessity of re-organizing the Education- al Establishment of the colony, and of placing the Public Schools in charge of men professionally qualified to undertake the important office of public instructors. In maturing the plan which was then transmitted to the Secretary of State for the Colonial Department, His Excellency received the invaluable assistance of that distinguished philosopher Sir Johnj Herschel, of whose visit to, and interest in the moral and intellectual im- provement of this colony, the system of education now about to be introduced, will, it is ho...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 30 August 1839

I TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. \ Sin, I trust you will allow me to make a few observa- tions in reference to your strictures on my pamphlet, in vindication of the Presbytery and the Presbyterian community. Your sense of justice, I feel satisfied, will induce you to give as wide a circulation to these observations, as your strictures have obtained through the medium of your journal. I am unwilling that it should go forth to the world that my advocacy of the Presbytery has had to seek for " support in vituperation," cspcciallj as you have not shown that such is the case. My object throughout was to atoid utuperation. There were many openings for the use of that weapon, had I chosen to employ it. Your own journal of last week satisfies mc that you hold the doctrine that there are occasions in which the employment of plain language is called for and necessary. As to one matter-you speak of an " ingenious perversion of every principle of jus- tice," and of " perverse ingenuity." As to a...

Cif ecuvivt* FRIDAY EVENING, AUGUST 30,1339. THE Legislative Council meet to-morrow, when the Lieutenant-Governor reads his Minute. The Feigned Issue Bill will also, wc presume, be laid upon the table. We are to learn at length, how all these contradictions are to be reconciled. There is no use in the Bill with the four shilling duty ¡and if the Government give way, they must solemnly record their ignorance, by rescind- ing the previous resolution. This is a fine state of things-this is equitable compensation- with a vengeance ! We predict the loss of the Feigned Issue Bill, notwithstanding the favourable anticipa- tions that have been fostered of its success. The people look to the proceedings of this Council with an unusual degree of interest. Will the independent members forfeit their title to pub« lie regard, when we are soon to have a public as- sembly ? Independently of such a consideration, their own honour and their own honesty forbid it. The colonists expect that every man ...

Èijt Cutir(n% THÙRSDAY^^EAlNOi'ArjGTjsrSlO, Ï839. The" Sydney Colohtst, of the 14th instant, contains a report of the trial of five Aboriginal natives, which we insert at the conclusion of these remarks. This proceeding is neither unimportant in principle, nor uninteresting in its détails. The contrast between the Chief Justice who presided on tim occasion, and the Attorney General who prosecuted, Was^ very strongly marked. Without a Bingle particle of the spirit of that eminent philanthropist, who sympathises for the persecuted and needy knife-grinder, " whose Hat had got a hole in it,'' Sir Janies ¿fowling saw tile exact situation of these men, and he very fairly described it. They were-His Honor said-to be tried by the same rules ás white men ; and irr summing up the evidence to the Jury, Sir James further remarked, that the prisoners " had no adequate defence." Their defence Mr. Windeyer had most kindly under- taken» and in conducting it he appears to have acted with the indepen...
