MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 9 October 1840

MISCELLANEOUS. Anagrams. - An anagram is the dissolution of any word or sentence into letters as its elements, and then making some other word or sentence from it applicable to persons or things named in such original word or sentence. There are words of this description, both of an ancient and modern application, which exhibit coincidences that are truly astonishing, and almost incredible, until proved by examination, at the same time affording a very peculiar fund of amusement. The following is a selection of some of the best transpositions : Astronomers ... Moon Starers. Deinocratical ... Comical Trade. Encyclopedia ...A nice cold Pye. Gallantries ... All great Sin. Lawyers ... Sly Ware. Misanthrope ... Spare him not. Monarch ... March on. Old England ... Golden Land. Presbyterian ... Best in Prayer. Punishment ... NineThumps. Penitentiary ... Nay I repent it.

THE COURIER. Strenue et Prospere. HOBART TOWN, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 9. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 9 October 1840

THE COURIER gtrtnuclrt Vrosjirrc, HOBART TOWN, /FRIDAY, OCTOBER 9. WE have received, via Port Phillip, English intel- ligence to the middlc\of June. Great alarm had been occasioned by a deliberate, although happily an unsuccessful attempt made to assassinate our Most Gracious Queen. Whi/e driving with Prince Albert from the new Palace tiwards Buckingham Gate, she was fired at by a foot-priscngcr, who, standing on the footpath, waited for the approach of the carriage, and on its coming abreast discharged two pistols, one after the other, at [ho Queen. It was evi- dent his intention was ¡to shoot the Queen, for he chose for his aim the ade at which she sat in the carriage. There is something at all times so revolt- ing to an Englishman n the idea of assassination, but more particularly ii the instance of a youthful female sovereign, who£c sex and years claim the generous sympathies ofi all classes and conditions of men, while her virtues give her a higher title to uni- versal admirati...

TRANSPOHTATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 9 October 1840

TRANSPORTATION. So far as transportation will henceforth effect Austral- asia, the Colonies hitherto called penal will be on a par with all the others. Convicts are still to be transported, not to become slaves anywhere, nor in any way to be mixed as convicts with the inhabitants of any Colony, but are to be confined by themselves in such places as Tasman's Peninsula and Norfolk Island, and, when their terms of punishment have expired, are to be let loose, not on New South Wales or Van Diemen's Land in particular, but on all that part of the world without distinction. This is a change of such vast importance to all Colonies iu that part of the world, that we feel bound to seize the earliest oppor- tunity of stating the results of a careful inquiry into its probable operation upon each of them. A NEW FUND TO CARKY OUT EMIGRATION. Mr. W. S. O'Brien, a member of the House of Commons, had given notice of motion of the following resolutions respecting Emigration to the various British Co...

ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. CORN LAWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 9 October 1840

ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. CORN LAWS On Mr. Villiers's motton to the House of Commons for the repeal of the Corn Laws, on the 26th May, the numbers were : Against the motion . 300 For it . 177 Majority.- 123 Notwithstanding- the agitation throughout the coun- try, notwithstanding the reports which have gone abroad respecting frequent conversions, notwithstand- ing the sudden conviction of Mr. George Dawson, and the injurious suspicions that have fallen upon the pro-corn-law virtue of Sir Robert Peel-notwithstand- ing all that has been done, and said, and hoped, and expected, it is now clear that the corn law question has made no progress whatever in the House of Com- mons. The majority is certainly something more than a score less this session than it was last, but then the Hause was not so full. Had the attendance been equal to that of the last session, there is no reason to believe that the corn law repealers would have diminished that majority by a single vote. * #. * * Thanks (o a bo...

COLONIAL PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 9 October 1840

COLONIAL PRESS. The Legislative Council recently went through the ceremony of passing an Act, to bring into opera- tion here, an Act of the Imperial Parliament, amend- ing the law as to Wills, in several important par- ticulars. This great improvement in the Law of Eng- and the local Council, have thought proper to an- nounce to Englishmen here, shall not come into opera- tion here until the 1st of April next. Now we contend that they have in this, acted exactly as the fifteen Judges of England recently declared the Canadian Council had done, exceeded their authority. We assert, and we are convinced we should be borne out by the result, that any Will made to-morrow, in compliance with the recent Act of Parliament, would, if contested here, upon the ground that by the Local Act of Council that law was not in operation, and if set aside by the ruling of the Local Judges, (which we are satisfied by-the-bye, neither Sir John Pedder nor Judge Montagu would think of doing,) it would, on a...
