The Courier. FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 7,1832. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 7 September 1832

%\)t Courier. ' P' FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 7,1832. J| The critical period to which the colony is now hurrying', is too alarming to be passed over with the brief remarks in our last number. We must continue again and again to invoke the attention of the authorities, must with re- newed energy caution the colonists at large of their impending danger, until we have roused them to adopt proper measures of safety and souud policy, so as to ensure a rescue from the grappling ruin now on all sides assailing us. During the week piivate bills on England have been obtained with difficulty at 7¿ per cent, premium and remittances in Treasury bills cannot be procured at a less charge than IO, the balance of trade against us with both Sydney and London being increased fully one third siuce the sailing of the Wave. The race, indeed, is going on full gallop, and unless we rein in in time no earthly power, as we ap- proach nearer and nearer the verge of the gulf, can save us from being dashed to pieces ov...

C&e Courier. FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 14,1832. The three days of English new* brought by the Mary, up to the 11th of May, are of unu- sual importance. Ministers being defeated by a iniijuiity of 85 ona question of postponing the consideration in the committee of a clause of the reform bill, and the King refusing to create a proportionate number of peers', found , it necessary to resign. That the reform bill, however, or another of equal extent, will pass, and that speedily, noone, even the most aris- tocratic had the least doubt. The able and lucid view given \ry our correspondent in the ensuing article?, fogdaer with the 'parliamen- tary reporlln onr last page, whieh we have condensed with much care, will enable the reader to form a correct judgment of the state of things in tbe Court of London. While we cannot but lament these political convulsions, and the enormous expense entailed upon the country, (and proportioiably on her colonies) by new ministries, and the hosts of friend*...

«WAN RIVER. The general satisfaction which Mr. Stock er's account of Swan river, inserted in our journal a fortnight ago, lias given, induces tis to add tlie following confirmation of his judg- ment from the peu of a distinguished officer from India, who lately visited the settlement. His little item about the value of cows and fat cattle in India may not be undeserving the no- tice of our country settlers. Nothing is more certain than that the many outlets for profit- able commerce, which exist around tis, must be hrought'iuto use, and that speedily, if, es- pecially under the present depressing colonial policy, we expect Van Diemen's land to pros- per: PKKTH, SWAN RIVER, Sept. 1831.-This place is possibly the most interesting and ex- traordinary spot au Indian ever visited.

It is perhaps needless to say that we allude here to education. We are sorry to state the fact, so much to our prejudice, be- cause otherwise strangers who will read our journal at a distance would not have believed it, that to this day we llave not any public seminary or institution deserving the name of collegiate in the island. With a mass of from 15 to 20 thousand free British subjects, teeming in the real sense of the word with the young, yawning as it were for instruction, not the slightest attempt has yet been made-not even the foundation stone for the necessary building, nor a site pitched upon whereon to lay it.

The company which composed it, and for which a charter has been granted was understood to be under the immediate patronage and protection of Earl Grey, and whether that distinguished nobleman continue in power or not, its suecess is so intimately connected with the best interests of the moth- er country, that there is no doubt but' its colonization will go on with spirit.
