VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 9 March 1847
VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. By the Swun, we have Van Diemen's Land jour- nals to the 27th ult., their contents, however, are unimportant.

GIPPS LAND EXPEDITION. The following is the account of their stewardship, which has been made by the Committee of the Gipps Land Expedi- tion : Report of the Committee appointed by the Public Meeting to arrange the Gipps Land Expedition. The subscribers to the Expedition have already been apprised of the general progress and results of the Expedition, the most important event of which has been the placing, beyond all question, the actual detention of a white female by one of the Gipps Land tribe of savages. Upon the return of the Expedition, the Com- mittee commenced a scrutiny of the causes of its failure, with an especial view to the investigation of certain imputations alleged against the leader, Mr. De Villiers, of useless delays, pusillanimity, and misappropriation of the funds. The whole of these charges the Committee unanimously consider disproved.

ENGLISH NEWS. The Arabian, from Kingston, (Irelund) 22nd Nov. hud arrived at Hobart Town, butshe brings no English news of later date than the 5th Nov., one day only later than we had previously re- ceived via Sydney, We have selected the following üdditioual items of intelligence from the summaries of our Van Diemen's Land contemporaries :_ The marriages of the Queen of Spain to Don Francisco de Assis and of the Infanta to the &nbsp; Duke de Montpensier were solemnized on the evening of the 10th October. &nbsp; Mr. Bulwer had presented another protest to the Spanish Government on the subject of the Infanta's marriage. It is short, but strong and decided in character.

A retired military officer named Olavarietta, had been arrested on the charge of meditating the assassination of the Duke of Montpensier. He was formerly...

The only news of importance is the confirma- tion of the reported discovery of coal in the vici- nity of Champion Bay, by Lieutenant Helpman and a party despatched by the Swan River Go- vernment for the purpose of making inquiry.
