TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 2 July 1841
TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. SIR,-In your paper of Friday lost, you made some obser- vations on the resolutions adopted at the late meeting of the Midland Agricultural Association, in a spirit of hostility and unfairness strangely inconsistent with your laudatory notice of the intended meeting a fortnight before; and in order to bolster up this change of opinion and sudden desertion of your san- guine hopes of the successful result of the meeting, you assume what is not true, and argue in apparent ignorance of the subject. You accuse the meeting of " beating about the bush, in asking the government to take the contracts at three months, and thereby excluding the foreigner, instead of pursuing the more manly course of calling upon His Excellency to put a capitation tax upon every head of stock imported into the colony until the surplus sheep and cattle in it had been consumed." Now, Sir, on what grounds do you make these reflections, and confound a petition for quarterly contracts w...
TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 2 July 1841
TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. SIR,-I have seen some very unworthy strictures in the jour- nal which you have not unhappily baptised with the appellation of ' Tiser, referring to the conduct of Captain Forth, as magis- trate in our district. Such remarks may not be of any conse- quence, but I feel happy that they have afforded mc, and I am 3uite sure that I speak the sentiments of every settler in the ¡strict, the opportunity of expressing my thanks to Captain Forth for the vigorous and independent exercise of authority which has distinguished him since he has come amongst us, and ,1 only trust, as I sincerely believe, he will persist in the same course, which cannot but be attended with the most beneficial results to the district. AN OLD SETTLER. Richmond, June 29.
TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 2 July 1841
TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. SIR,-Will you acquaint me how the rights of patents are protected in this colony ? My object in making this inquiry is to ascertain whether any party in this colony has a legal right to appropriate to himself &nbsp; a useful invention to the injury of the proprietor of the patent and his agent here. About the moral right there can exist no question. I have been urged to this inquiry in consequence of seeing an advertisement in your paper, signed J. Smith, calling himself the inventor and manufacturer of what, by a strange perversion of terms, sufficient at once to detect the imposition, he calls the patent solar lamp. Now, Sir, the inventor and manufacturer of them is certainly a Mr. Smith, of Birming- ham, and connected with a most respectable and extensive firm. The utility of the invention is generally acknowledged; but its simplicity is no excuse for the invasion of the patent; no more, indeed, than the frequency of the name of Smith is any ...

NEW WHARF. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 2 July 1841
NEW WHARF. THE question as to the policy of continuing the New Wharf as a place of deposit for oil was consi- dered iu the Legislative Council on Tuesday last. We are of opinion that it would tend very much to the advantage of the importers of goods, to the con- venience of the inhabitants of the town, and to the credit of the port, if the space on the New Wharf was not occupied-, as it usually has been, with oil. It would appear to be but just to all parties concerned, to have the whaling vessels and the oil removed to some position BO that the annoyances and injuries under the present practice, which are constant and evident, would not accrue to them. Thero is cer- tainly some method, order, and cleanliness, very much required on the New Wharf, and we are of opinion that there never can be any very satisfactory arrange- ment with respect to it, if oil, under any regulations, be allowed to be landed and deposited there. Should it be so allowed, the place must continue to bo dis- gu...

TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 2 July 1841
TO CORRESPONDENTS. CAITAIX X. We arc ohligcd to our correspondent for his verses entitled " La Belle Alliance, or the harridan Coalition of the Press." Such persons however are unworthy a single line, txeept that line indeed which loth of them so narrowly and so unfoilunately for thc.colony once escaped, when they were «n the point of being introduced to a " press-room" of a very dif- ferent hind. CLIIIUCUS came too late for this day's publication. ACHE. We doubt the originality of these lines ¡ but we have no doubt at all about the postage, which in common courtesy ought to have been paid. G. It's, adtertiscment teas too late.

IMPORTANT NEWS FROM INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 2 July 1841
IMPORTANT NEWS FROM INDIA. THE news" from Lahore, which we extract from the Agra Ukhbar, is of the highest importance, OB it is highly probable that the British army will be soon called on to interfere. It appears that Shere Singh having induced the troops outside the city of Lahore to join his standard, commenced an attack with a determination to remove the Ranee Chund Kooar, mother of Now Nchal Singh, from the throne. The city gates were suddenly ordered to be closed on the evening of the 14th of January ; guns were planted at them ; and no persons were allowed to approach the walls from the outside. On the 15th nothing was decided ; but during the night some of Shere Singh's partisans having entered one of the gates, that chief succeeded in establishing himself in the city, where he held a durbar. The fort still held out for the Ranee, and continued to 6re upon the adherents of Shere Singh. The contest, which it was first thought would speedily terminate in favour of the assailan...
THE CABINET. WHEN FIRST I MET THEE. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 2 July 1841
THE CABINET. WHEN FIRST I MET THEE. When first I met thee warm and young There shone such truth about thee, And on thy lip such promise hung, I did not dare to doubt thee. I saw theo change, yet still replied, Still clung with hope the fonder, And thought, though false to all beside, From mc thou could'st not wander. But go, deceiver 1 go-. The heart whose hopes could make it Trust one so false, so low. Deserves that thou should'st break it. When every tongue thy follies named, I fled the unwelcome story ; Or found, in even the faults they blamed Some gleams of futuie'glory. I still was true, when nearer friends Conspired to wrong, to slight thee. The heart that now thy falsehood rends. Would then have bled to right thee. But go, deceiver I go Some day, perhaps, thou'lt waken From pleasure's dream, to know The grief of hearts forsaken. Even now, tho' youth its bloom has shed, No lights of age adorn thee ; The few who lov'd thee once have fled, And they who flatter scorn thee. . The ...
LOCAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 2 July 1841
LOCAL. MRCHANICS' INSTITUTION.-The first meeting of the present session of this institution was held on Thursday, the 24th ult., in the old Wcslcyan chapel, which has been rented for the pur- pose of the lectures, and most appropriately fitted up. It is estimated that there were upwards of five hundred persons present. We feel a real pleasure in recording the highly favor- able indications of the growing prosperity of the society, which the whole circumstances of the evening presented. The subject of the President's opening lecture was, as we before announced, " the Subserviency of the Study of Natural History to Re- ligion." It will, as a matter of course, be expected that we can only award it the most unqualified admiration ; we nevertheless cannot resist an expression of praise and thankfulness for the highly intellectual hour which this elegant discourse afforded. We know not which to applaud the most, its poetically beauti- ful composition, or the elevated tone of christian fee...
