THE COURIER. »trenur. et Qrosyrre. HOBART TOWN, TUESDAY. JULY 6. IN consequence of an accumulation of natter which we were unable to insert in our last Friday's publica- tion, comprising Reports of the Proceedings of the Legislative Council, the Gazette Notices, and other matters of public interest, we have arranged to present our subscribers with this supplementary sheet, in order that they may be in early possession of the informa- tion which it contains.

THE CABINET. THE EXILE'S RETURN. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 9 July 1841
THE CABINET. THE EXILE'S RETURN. Sadly from home he turned away To seek a distant clime, When friends were kind and life was gay In boyhood's early time. With fleeting years and seas between To one fond hope he clung, To see again, as he had seen, The home he loved when young. His youthful brow was touched by thought, And life lind lost its morn, When once again the wand'rer sought The land where he was born. Alas! that dearly-valued shore Denied the wonted joy ; And the man felt not ns of yore Had felt the happier boy 1 For formal friends scarce grasp'd his hand-. The friends he knew of old What cared he for a sunny land If human hearts were cold I Again he cast his altered lot Mid alien tribes to roam, And scarce could find another spot So foreign as his home 1 His lonely grief no bosom shared No eye would weep his fall What matter if his life were spared, Who liv'd unloved by all. And when had ceased his earthly toil Upon that distant shore. His bonus were gathered to the soil Hi...
THE UNITED STATES. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 9 July 1841
THE UNITED STATES. THE Harrison administration is formed : Mr. Web- ster to take the department of State, Mr. Crittenden the Attorney-Generalship, General Ewing the Post- master-Generalship, and Mr. Granger the Navy De- partment. The proceedings in Congress had possessed merely a local interest. The House of Representatives had an escape from a dangerous accident-the fall of the new chandelier from the hall of the House. It is thus described by the correspondent of a London paper- , " The accident occurred at ten o'clock or thereabouts ¡ and the fall was the weight of 7,500 pounds of brass, lead, and glass, at the distance of some fifteen feet. The fall was a tremendous one, and the crash like the noise of a falling house, the echo of the hall giving an increased noise to the falling mass.- Had the House been in session, and the members in their scats, some dozen members must have been maimed or killed. The weight of the chandelier fell in the centre of the hall, a part of it forc- ...

SPIRIT OF THE ENGLISH PRESS. TRIAL OF THE EARL OF CARDIGAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 9 July 1841
SPIRIT OF THE .? ENGLISH PRESS. TRIAL OF THE EARL OF CARDIGAN. MORNING POST.-The Chronicle joins the -senseless ' outcry against the House of Lords on account of the result of Lord Cardigan's trial. The House of Lords is held up to the hatred, of the ignorant multitude as having taken a course in this criminal trial of a pecu- liar description, for the purpose of screening a rich man who was one of themselves. Greater falsehood than this there cannot be. The peers acted under the guidance of the very same criminal judge who frequently presides at the Old Bailey-a judge ap- pointed by the present government-a man upon whose judicial integrity not even the breath of slander has ever cast the slightest stain. The calumniators of the House of Lords know that the very same course must have been taken by judge and jury had the same flaw in the evidence been discovered in any Criminal Court. The House of Lords went upon nothing new, either in principle or practice, but. pro- ceeded in acco...
