THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. MONDAY, APRIL 5. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 5 April 1841

THE LAUNCESTON COURIER, MONDAY, APRIL 5. The Supreme Court opened this 'morning for the trial of Civil Cases. We again take this opportunity of repeating the two standing sub jects of complaint; first, the want of accommo dation for reporters : and. secondly, the miser able place in which prisoners for trial are huddled together outside the Court House. His Honor Mr. Justice Montagu long since complained of this, tut no notice whatever ivas taken of --His Honor's remarks. However, we really dp still entertain a hope that by constantly re-iterating these complaints, something will at last be done, and this is our apology for again alluding to the subject. ?-;???;? It is worthy of remark, that an apparently very useless portico; has just been erected in front, of tlie judges room, at an expense that would very easily have defrayed the cost of both the above 'required improvements. In a recent Swan River newspaper, we find some interesting returns of the quantity of stock, &c, ...

DINNER TO CAPTAIN MONTAGU. I From the Hobart Town Courier.) Tuesday last being the day appointed on which this dinner was to take place in honour of the return of Captain Montagu on his resuming the office of Colonial Secretary, and as a mark no less of private esteem than of grateful acknowledgment on the part of the commu nity for the zealous and efficient services rendered to tne colony by his representations with the Home Govern ment during his temporary absence, at a period fraught with so much peril, not only to our reputation but_ to our. very means of support— the town was filled with gentlemen from all parts of the country, and exhibited an appearance of animation rarely to be seen except upon holiday occasions.

THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. MONDAY, APRIL 12. "There is corn in Egypt." [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 12 April 1841

THE UUNCiSTON COURIER MONDAY, APRIL 12. ' There is corn in Egypt.' Egypt was anciently tbe most fertile of all countries in corn, as appears both from sacred and profane history. It furnished a great part of tbe people subject to tbe Roman empire, and tvas proverbially called tbe dry-nurse of Rome and Italy. In tbe nortb, Britain, France, and Poland, seem now in the place of Egypt, and outof their abundance supply a considerable por tion of the European continent. Van Diemen's Land, in like manner, may be said to be the Egypt of tbe south, inasmuch as tbe surround ing colonies, in a great measure, depend upon the surplus grain exported from her shores. Hence it will be obvious, that no object of civi lised society can be of more importance than a constant and permanent supply of this absolute necessary of life ; and therefore, nothing can more -seriously demand the attention of the Government of this colony than the rational means of encouraging and extending its growth. The very la...
