PROCLAMATION RE-OPENING THE TRADE. (From the Canton Register, 23rd March.) [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 25 June 1841
PROCLAMATION RE-OPENING THE TRADE. (From the Canton Ilcgister, 23rd March.) Yang, assistant commissioner mid great minister, and E, acting governor of the two Ksvang provinces, issues this proclamation on the afluir of resuming trade as usual. It is authenticated that on the 27lh day of the 2d moon, (March 19), England's public officer (messenger) wrote, saying : " I wish for peace ; I require nothing else ; I only re. quire thal trade may be immediately ullowed us usual." Such are the requests. On examination it is found that the trade of all foreign nations is allowed only by the benevolent intentions of the heavenly dynasty of treating men from afar with com- passion and kindness. It is now known that England's public officer has said-" that he requires nolhiug else ; thal for trade only he seeks." The American merchunt vessels and those of other nations are obstructed on account of hostilities, and the consumption of their goods is impeded, and there is no cer- tain (¡me for the...

OPERATIONS IN THE RIVER. (From the Canton Register Extra, 18/A March.) The H. C's steamer Queen arrived in Macao roads from the river yesterday afternoon, and about 7 p.m. a boat from her arrived on shore, and this forenoon a circular was issued.

LATEST ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 25 June 1841
LATEST ENGLISH NEWS. WE have received, via Sydney, English intelligence down to the 22d February. The Globe announces that Her Majesty is again in an " interesting condi- tion." It was rumoured that the disputes with Ame- rica, relative to the boundary question, had been re- newed, and that the borders were " all in a flame." Sir John Harvey had been recalled from the Govern- ment of New Brunswick, and was succeeded by Sir William Colebrook. Wool had continued to advance in price. Tlie Earl of Cardigan had been tried by the House of Peers and acquitted of shooting at Captain Harvey Garnett Phipps Tuckett, there being no proof that the Captain's name was Harvey Garnett Phipps Tuckett.

CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 25 June 1841
CHINA. WE have received exclusively the latest advices from China, which reach to the 23rd of March. The ex- tracts we have made from the'rCanfoii Register will be perused with great interest by'our readers. It now appears that not only have the^Bogue forts been cap- tured, > but all the ports on the riverside of. Canton have been taken and destroyed, and the guns of the fleet are now within range of the city. The southern and western approaches to the city by the river are now fully commanded. No sooner had these successes been achieved than a truce, as usual, was agreed upon, and permission given for merchant-vessels to proceed to Whampoa at their own risk, in case hostilities should break out. This truce-making and truce-breaking is exceed- ingly tiresome. It is evident that the Admiral is crippled by orders from home. The ministerial journals in England appear to be in ecstacies at the thought of being allowed to negotiate upon equal terms with the Celestial empire. They open...

THE CABINET. THE HOMEWARD BOUND. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 25 June 1841
THE CABINET. THE HOMEWARD BOUND. 'Tis merry, 'tis merry upon the sea, When our ship her course is winging, And over her quarter, fair and free, The tropic breeze is singing. What, tho' the moon looks wan and pale, And the sea runs slack and hollow : She laughs at the breeze as she stoops her rail» Whilst the shark and the dolphin follow. The petrel dips its weary wing O'er the crest of the blue wave glancing ; Still close to our barque the storm-birds cling» When the silv'ry moonbeam's dancing. 'Tis merry, 'tis merry upon the sea, When the helmsman's song is blending, With the scieam of the sea-gull on our lee, To his home in the datk rock wending. For they speak to the heart of land once more» Afar o'er the blue wave sleeping, And they herald us on to that happy shore» O'er tbe rim of the ocean sweeping. And merry it is to the home-bound crew, When the hue of the wave is changing To a paly green, from the dark, dark blue» And the deep-sea line is ranging ; When the fog bank lifts i...

THE COURIER. Stvcnue rt Prospere.. HOBART TOWN, FRIDAY, JUNE 25. THE order just issued by the Commissariat, by in- struction of the Lords Commissioners of the Treasury, to the eft'ect that in future all Treasury Bills are to be sold at five per cent, premium, payable in British silver, has created a great sensation throughout the mercantile portion of the community. How such a measure could have originated, or whence the sugges- tion came upon which " my lords" acted, is the question ; and as often as it is repeated, so often are people puzzled to find out the why or the wherefore of this most extraordinary measure. It could not have arisen from any recommendation of Mr. M'Lean, the head of the Commissariat in this colony, because it is rightly enough conjectured he had no data, no reason, whereon to found such a recommendation. However the order is come, and is published in the Gazatte. It is in reality nothing more nor less than a direct tax upon the colonists of five per cent, up...
