We have on recept occasion» endeavoured to 1 "account fur 'the present-heavy belaufe oftrade ."between this colony, and Sydney.

INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 28 September 1832

INDIA. Mr. Crawford, of London, has written a letter to Mr. Ricketts, of Bancoorali, on the reform of East Indian affairs, published in the Calcutta papers, which has excited very great public notice throughout India. '* Were I to withhold it says Mr. Ricketts, I should stand justly chargeable 'of putting a candín under a bushel.' He is for restricting the home patronage, as we may call it, simply to the nomination of governors, councillors, and judges of appellate courts, leavingallthe other glades of office iu the hands of the local go vernmeiit, subject to the control of public opi nion expressed through the medium of a free press. To this I subscribe my hearty amen, if the age be far enough advanced in liberal notions to admit of uuch a bold stride in the ' work of reform " | We recommend the following passage in Mr. Orawfurd's letter to the-notice of our readers generally, but especially of our Indian friends, not excepting Dr. Henderson of Huckemma bad. *< The great...

SUPREME COURT. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 28 September 1832

SUPREME COURT. A decision of great importance took place in the Supreme Court on Friday last. It af- fects all persons connected with trade or com- merce so materially, that we are anxious to give it the utmost publicity. The following ia an outline of the case. In 1829 Mr. Bent advertised the Colonial Times newspaper, the materials of his printing office, and the busi- ness thereof for sale, notifying in his adver- tisement his intention to retire wholly from that occupation, in order to reside upon his farm. Mr. Melville became the purchaser for the sum of 0001., and took a receipt for the same in which the nature of the purchase was detailed, and the good will of the business par- ticularly mentioned. No further contract was entered into between the parties. Upon the sale being completed Mr. Bent retired, as he had agreed, into the country, and Mr'Melville stepped into his business, which he carried on as his successor. In the present year Mr. Bent thought proper to resume the bu...

From this ex- cellently assorted cargo it would appear that our northern neighbours conceive us to be in an actual state of starvation.

The Courier. FRIDAY. SEPTEMBER 28,1832. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 28 September 1832

C|)e Courier. FRIDAY. SEPTEMBER 28,1832. We had prepared a reiteration of our appeal to the authorities on the present alarming- and depressed state of the colony, but the pressure of temporary matter obliges us to ptstpone it. We candidly assure the Government that we should not be so earnest on this subject, were we not-were not the colony at large but toc> sensibly suffering from it. If the brief expe- riment of the crown land sales measure has al- ready had this destructive effect, what do the powers in Downing- street suppose would be the result of exacting the quit rents ? Look at the spirit duties every day draining us to the dregs-look at the unconscionable-we might say the innumerable public houses just licensed by the Bench-as if the colony could hear such a gross, such a madlike extravagance ! But the applying for and sanctioning a license, is not issuing and paying for it, and we still hope that many of the applicants will think better of it, before they embark in a r...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier — 5 October 1832

TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. SIR,-Suffer me to draw your attention to the Court of Requests Act, in which it is declared that "every such Court shall be holden, for despatch of business on some day in the first week in every Calendar month" ; and to request that you will have the goodness to say, if Mr. Mulgrave, the new Commission- er of Campbell town, where he has never yet sat, can from his parlour at Launceston declare, in the third week of one month, that the Court stands adjourned to the second week of the following. It appears to some of us in the district, that Mr. Mulgrave cannot legally do any such thing, and that therefore, any verdicts given at, or proceedings emanating from a Court thus held, are perfectly inept.

THE MAURITIUS. FROM A CORRESPONDENT. We rejoice to be enabled to give the pub- lic of this colony as detailed an account of the recent events at the Mauritius, as newspaper space oan admit. We regret that such space is so limited as to prevent our giving more than a mere summary thereof, many pub- lic documents having appeared during its course, which would be read here with the deepest interest, and which well deserve to be made matter of public record m every British colony. We will begin at the beginning. In the early part of the present year, the liberty of the press was bestowed upon the people of the Mauritius, by the suppression of the odious "censorship." Two daily journals (Sundays included) were immediately established, con- ducted by men of powerful talent, (both in the French language) the one called .* The Cer ni'en," the other " The Balance." It is re- markable to observe the effect produced by that powerful engine the Press, as such appears in considering the details ...

The Courier. FRIDAY, OCTOBER 5, 1832. We had the pleasure on Monday morning last, to announce to our town readers (the want of communication preventing us from doing the same to our country friends) the very important news brought by the Minerva.
