Advertising [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 5 July 1839
The Proprietor of this Journal begs have to inform his ad- vertising friends, that Advertisements are inserted in the ' Courier ' at the same rate per line as hitherto, notwith- standing the increased width of the columns. This an- nouncement, coupled with the fact, that the ' Courier ' en- joys a larger circulation than any other publicjonrnal in the colony, will be sufficient to recommend it to the public as the most economical and advantageous medium for adver- tisements.

The Courier. FRIDAY EVENING. JULY 5, 1339. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 5 July 1839
The Courier. FRIDAY EVENING. JULY 5, 1839. Our official duties as Printer to the Govern- ment having terminated this week, we are now in a condition to pay an undivided attention to the interests of this journal, and have this day to offer the Hobart Town Courier to the reader under an entirely new and modified arrangement. The hour of publication being deferred until the Fri- day afternoon, will enable us to add more matter of immediate interest, while a compendium of the Official Gazette, added to other intelligence of a political and mercantile character, will appear as usual. The change in the hour of publication will also enable us to subjoin the latest intelligence from Launceston. The process of imitation has been latterly adopted by the copying of the head- ing of our journal, which we presume to have been done from simple admiration of its appearance ; but so distrustful are we of its external beauty, that we have not hesitated to change it for what will, we think, be gener...

EDUCATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 12 July 1839
EDUCATION. We recommend to the reader the following Tcry eloquent passage from a speech of Lord Stanley made at Warrington, on occasion of the meeting held there in favour of education based on religious principles. It completely upsets the voluntary principle, or that which would leave chance to regulate the minds of children in all matters connected with religion. We are happy to perceive, that the establishment of schools throughout England seems now to be considered the primary object towards effecting the improve- ment of the people. The clergy of the Church of England have been most active in promoting these institutions, numerous meetings having been held throughout the country, and large subscriptions raised for the building and endow- ment of schools : But, my lord, it is often said, what has a church-what lias any religious body, as such, to do with education? why interfere at all ?-why not leave it, in all ordinary circumstances, to the operation of that common and well k...
CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 12 July 1839
CHINA. We have received Singapore papers to the middle of March. We have already alluded to the rise in the price of tea occasioned by the interruption in the Canton trade, and a notice to j quit, which a firm in the factory received from I the Chinese government, in consequence of the, reiterated attempts to smuggle opium, which the authorities of " the flowery kingdom" seem deter- mined to put down with the strong hand. From the energy with which the Chinese govern, ment continues to prosecute its restrictive measures against the opium trathe, the stale and prospects of the market are gloomy in the extreme,and it is likely to reach a still lower point of depression, as a com- missioner expressly appointed from Pekin, clothed with extraordinary powers, was daily expected to arrive at Canton, whose orders and object it is under, stood are to put in force means to extinguish the trade altogether ; and the general vigilauce of the inferior mandarina was evinced by the detection of ^__...

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 12 July 1839
SOUTH AUSTRALIA. We have received South Australian papers to the 19th of last month, but we do not find that they contain any additional news of importance to that published in the Courier of last week. The Southern Australian contains, in addition to Mr. Robert Cock's report of the harbour of Victoria, a narrative by the same gentleman, of his expedition to explore Spencer's Gulf. It docs not appear to have been attended with any beneficial result. We observe that Botanic and Horticultural Gardens are about to be established under the superintendence of a Mr. Bailey, an experienced botanist appointed by the Governor to undertake their charge, and upwards of £100 have been already subscribed by the inhabitants to forward the project. News from England to the middle of February had been received. Mr. James's work on South Australia seems to have excited some little dis- satisfaction. It appears to be a compilation of Cockney twaddle, as will be seen from the follow- ing very brief ex...

STEAM COMMUNICATION BETWEEN GREAT BRITAIN AND THE AUSTRALIAN COLONIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 12 July 1839
STEAM COMMUNICATION BETWEEN GREAT BRITAIN AND THE AUS- TRALIAN COLONIES. We have received a communication from Syd- ney on the subject of the Steam Company, which we noticed some time since as in the progress of formation, for the purpose of establishing a line of steam ships between Great Britain and Syd- ney, with a branch to this colony. We under- stand that no less a sum than £50,000 has been already subscribed for shares in Sydney, and we ought not to allow so mighty a project to be de- ferred for the want of additional means to carry it into effect, when we'may be said to be as much if not more deeply interested in it than our neigh- bours. Considering the absence of all emigra- tion, and the uncertain events with which we are threatened, we ought to encourage the success of the project, which is sure to receive ample support from capitalists at home; and if the voyage can be made to India, there is nothing more formidable to be overcome in the passage to these colonies. Indee...
AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 12 July 1839
AUSTRALIA. An official abstract of the revenue of New South Wales, from the 1st January, 1824, to 31st December, IS37, inclusively, shows that a population less than 100,000 souls, had paid in fourteen years into the Colonial Exchequer, the sum of £2,100,980. Four hundred and sixty thousand two hundred and seventeen pounds of this amount had been derived, and chiefly willi iu the lust six years of the (erin, from the sale and rent of colonial lands ; anti £1,200,700 from duties ou spirits and tobacco. When it is re- membered that a very large pcrliou of this sum roust lune proceeded from the wages of labour, aud that within the same period the exports of wool from Sydney had progressively increased from 275,5C0lbs. to .l,(it!(),&lt;JI5ltJs., the resources of this colony, great as they have been estimated, are proved not to be exaggerated. And there can be no doubt if an influx of agricultural labourers, proportionate to the de- mand had taken place, the results would have be...
SPIRIT OF DISTILLATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 12 July 1839
SPIRIT OF DISTILLATION. By the King's commands they bound my hands; And bore me to my doom ; The crowd's stern look but ill could brook Such shameless martyrdom. In speechless gaze of deep amaze, That told the heart's emotion As the foam will curl ere the storm doth whirl The undulating ocean They saw me bound, but soon around Hoarse murmurings gathering rose, And curses deep and loud bespeak The mind's indignant throes. A smooth-tongued priest,* who loved the feast, But not alas I-of reason, Came forth among the angry throng With gentle words appeasing. ¡ ?> " To gain your ends, 'tis best my friends You cease this idle clamour, The King will make for Revenue's sake (The people muttered, d-n her ) A sacrifice-for he denies ' No boon to this fair lady ; For such her figure and dancing vigour i You'd wish her a " MECUM VADE !" A captain here was heard to cheer E'en Hackett smiled applause The sneaker said, emboldened, " Now hear rae for my cause." "My friends, why thus make such a ...

TO CORRESPONDENTS. | A Correspondent ashs us-where is Air. TAomson's pam- phlet? We ate not aware that it's out. But why hurry Mr. T. ? " The ¡tale cast of thought " don't seem to have added much vigour to his resolution. However, let us hope that-" It's coming still for a' that." R. D. willfiud a notice relative to the Gazettes under the proper head. M.- We were wrong in presuming that the difference be- tween Mr. Justice Montagu and the Solicitor-General had been composed. The question has been re-opened, and as an accommodation seems now out of the question, the matter assumes a more serious aspect than ever.
