TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER[?] Collins-street, Hobart Town, July, 1841. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 9 July 1841
TO THE EDITOR OF Tit* r>«T,r>rr,. Colhns-street, Hobart Town, July.'lúl. "...,-,.. ic|,jy io a jener in your journal of last Friday, signed Detector, I beg to state my claim to the invention, is for having applied the cone or cap, for the purpose of produc- ing a more brilliant flame over the ordinary method, to a highly respectable medical gentleman's lamp, about six years prior to Timothy Smith, of Birmingham, (of the firm alluded to) having ever entertained any idea of its application, therefore I think my claim is substantiated.. It is evident, Sir, the gentle- man Detector's optics were not in such good condition as they might have been, or he would have seen the word patent solar lamp is not used, nor did I assume the patentee. I also have to thank him for the appellation of impostor ; though he might not have found anything in me to commend, he should not have been so hasty to condemn ; but I trust the public will give mc that support, and Ihut alone, which the merit of...

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 9 July 1841
ENGLISH EXTRACTS. The " Royal Cheese," lately presented to ITer Majesty, and which weighed upwards of half a ton, has been the grave subject of a legal discussion in the Chancery Court, from which it has had a very narrow escape, arising from the following circum- stances : " The parties in whose custody the monstrous mass of consolidated curds had been placed, finding that it was Hie intention of the person who had taken a cast of the cheese to make an exhibition of it in London, thought it might be as well to gratify the Londoners with a sight of the cheese itself. It was accordingly brought up with great rare and ceremony. The Lord Steward of Hie Iloueehuld was consulted, whether the exhibition of the cheese would endanger its acceptance by the Queen. Lord Errol, wc are fold, " declined giving any official opinion on Hie point;" but went to view the cheese, and gave his " private opinion" that ils exhibition would not hazard its acceptance. The owner of the plaster-cast, apprehen...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. SIR,-A Government notice has appeared relative to on Act about to be submitted to the Legislative Council ; and providing that all aid from the public funds for n minister's salary, or promise of aid towards the erection of a church shall absolutely cease and determine, unless the church in reference to which a minister's salary shall have been paid, or aid promised, shall have been commenced within six months from the first Issue of the minister's salary, or promise being made, and continued in such a manner as may appear to be satisfactory to His Excel- lency the Lieutenant-Governor; permit me the insertion of the following remarks in reference thereto: As the proposed Act will probably diminish the number of churches now progressing, or for which aid has been promised, so that there will not be stations for all the newly arrived minis- ters-and these ministers have generally been appointed prior to leaving England by the Home Government to chaplainci...

Î.OCAL. WATER.-The Governor's Minute upon the subject of sun. plying the towns of Hobart Town and Launceston with water by means of pipes, conveying it into every house where it may be desired, will have been bead with extreme interest by the com. munity ; we intend in our next number giving the matter a de. tailed consideration, for it is one of very considerable import, ance, and we apprehend, not to be successfully attained by tho means which the government have suggested. We doubt espe chilly if any single individual will even have the enterprise, or at all events the means, of entering upon it single-handed; it5 accomplishment appears to us more likely of efficient attain, ment by means of a company, in the manner in which all these things are done in the mother-country. It will, however, bo welcome intelligence to the occupants of the two towns, that tho subject is at length seriously taken up by the government.

THE COURIER. Strenue et Prospere. HOBART TOWN, FRIDAY, JULY 9. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 9 July 1841
THE COURIER. Strenue et Prospere. HOBART TOWN, FRIDAY, JULY 9. IN our supplement of Tuesday last we copied from the Gazette the official Abstract of Revenue and Ex- penditure for the first quarter of the present year, compared with the corresponding period of last year. The results which it presents are certainly satisfactory. The total increase of the revenue for the quarter of the present year, above that of the previous one, being £31,300 ; which, should the remaining quarters bear anything like a correspondence, will present an im- mense increase at the termination of the year. It is to be borne in mind, however, that this large increase is mainly derived from the sale of Crown lands ; but we nevertheless think there is a fair prospect of the realization of His Excellency's anticipation, that the revenue will, at the end of the year, amount to £200,000. The chief items of increase are in the sale of Crown lands, the Customs, Fees of Depart- ments, Post-office, and the produce of...
