THE COURIER. Strenuc tt Croapcrc. HOBART TOWN, TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 3. We have received English intelligence to the 20th of July. A draft of the Bill for the Government of New South Walesand Van Diemen's has arrived, and we publish it in full, to prove to the community of this colony that they need not grieve at being denied the boon extended to the sister colony. The Governmen't of Van Diemen's Land continues as before, and we may congratulate ourselves on being spared the mockery of such a responsible government as the Secretary of State has thought fit in his wisdom to bestow upon New South Wales. There is to be a Legislative Assembly consisting of thirty-six mem- bers, twelve of whom are to be nominees of Ihe Crown. The bread is thus leavened to sourness. Another third will be chosen in their favour, and then where are the people left? They will enjoy a more unenviuble minority than they at present groan under in the Legislative Council. They can origi- nate no money measure and vo...

COLONIAL PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 6 November 1840
COLONIAL PRESS. Macquarie Hotel.-.This commodious building, which was erected we believe for the purpose to which it is at present adapted, has been recently fitted up in a very superior style, by Mr. Benjamin, as a Family Hotel. Such an establishment was much required in Hobart Town, for although every accom- modation for our " Country Cousins" is always ready at the " Ship," yet the arrangements at the Macquarie are more for the accommodation ot families, and we most sincerely wish that the spirited proprietor may meet with the patronage and en- couragement which his exertions so well deserve.-Colonial Times, November 3.

THE ROAD ACT. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 6 November 1840
THE ROAD ACT. A highly respectable meeting of the landholders of the district of Richmond was held at the Bush Inn, Rich- mond, on Friday last, the 30th ultimo, pursuant to a notice issued by Mr. Gregson, with the view of opposing the proposed Road Act, and petitioning against the third reading of the Bill now before the Council. The meeting, however, being one of a public nature, all persons whether for or against the Act, were invited to attend. On our arrival we found Mr. Luthrop Murray on his legs inveighing against the principle of the Bill. It was not only, he said, a land tax but a house tax, for what had the Legislative Council now done? They had gone from &nbsp; bad to worse. In addition to the acreable assessment of sixpence per acre, they had, with a view of further amendment, proposed an additional sixpence in the £1, upon the annual value of all bouses and tenements. The colony could not endure if-it would be intolerable and odious in the extreme, for who were t...
