ENGLISH. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 6 November 1840
ENGLISH. The Ministers, according1 to the latest accounts, would, it was expected, weather through the Session. Lord Stanley has withdrawn his Registration Bill, but announced his intention of persisting with it next Session. Lord Howick and Mr. C. Wood returned to the Ministerial side, and there was a majority of four against one of the clauses of the Bill, which was the occasion of its being1 withdrawn, as well as on account of the lateness of the Session. Lord John Russell gave notice, on the 1st of July, of introducing a Bill for the government of these colonies, the same which we published on Tuesday last. A Regency Bill was to have been brought forward appointing Prince Albert sole Regent, in the event of any unfortunate accident attending the Queen's ac- couchement. Lord Elliott, in the House of Commons, brought forward the New Zealand Question, in which the Ministers cut a most sorry figure. They did, and they did not know, and they must wait to see what Captain Hobson had d...

THE COURIER. âtrenue rt ilrosprrc. HOBART TOWN, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 6. Yesterday, at three o'clock, His Excellency, accom- panied by Lady Franklin and a numerous suite, laid the foundation stone of the new Government House, to be built on the site set apart in the Government Domain. A guard of honour was in attendance, under the command of Lieutenant Baker. Captains Ross and Crozier and the other officers of the Discovery Ships were present. A dejeuner was laid out in the Pavilion, and the day being fine, the spectacle went off with every eclat. The first reading of the Bothwell Bill carne on for discussion on Tuesday last. The Attorney-General rested the justice of the Bill on the documentary evi- dence which we have published. The Colonial Secre- tary seconded the first reading, and proceeded to argue that although Colonel Arthur had given away the church from its original destination and handed it over to the Presbyterians, yet that he possessed no power to do so, and in fact the su...

CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 6 November 1840
CHINA. By the Guiana, from Singapore, we have received our Singapore papers to the 30th July inclusive, from which we annex several extracts. They are not, how- ever, possessed of extraordinary interest-the ex- pedition not having, up to the latest dates, arrived at China; but in the meantime, the strength of the expedition and the proceedings of the Celestials, possess at least sufficient interest to entitle them to a place in our columns. We begin with an extract from Wednesday's Chronicle : Two ships, the Tomutin, Captain Wingate and the Asia Felix (a country ship), had been taken up by Government the first week in August, to carry stores to China for the use of the expedition. Captain Hall also informs us that most of the American and other foreign vessels had left China, generally bringing cargoes of tea to Singapore for transhipment to England. Speculation is raising the price tremendously, as no further supply can possibly be ob- tained until the settlement of the Opium quest...
CHARADE. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 10 November 1840
CHARADE. There was once a knight both young and tall. And blessed with a handsome tace, When he rode at the ring, or danced at the ball, 'Twos done with a wonderful grace ; By the leaguered wall, in the battles burst, ''Mid the foremost his name was reckoned ; But, alas I he always was my First, Because he had not my Second. Fair ladies turned with a scornful look When he ventured to draw near; And fathers and mothers shuddered and shook If he gared on their daughters dear ; Often apart from the crowd he stole, And cried as his fate he cursed, " If my Second I had. I might e'en be my Whole, But I never should be my First." P. O. P.

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 10 November 1840
ENGLISH EXTRACTS. In the best-informed commercial circles, it is asserted, that if things do not speedily take a turn, and a more wholesome system be introduced in our immense monetary affairs, we must not.be surprised at the latter end of 1840 becoming a counter part of that of 1825. A company is suiil to be formiiig for a new railway from Loudon to Manchester, to commence at the General Post Office. At the Queen's Drawing Room, the Honourable Mrs. Norton was the only person whose appearance created any sensation. The foundation of the new Clinical Hospital at Bir- mingham, to be called "The Queen's Hospital," was laid on Thursday week, by Earl Howe, assisted by the Free- masons of the province. The building will consist of two wings, and contain upwards of 150 buds. Government has ¡igiecd to advance a loan of £30,000 to the Ulster Railway Compauy ; and the works now in pro- gress to open the line from Lilburn to Portadown, a dis- tance of 17 miles, are progressing with spirit aud ...

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 10 November 1840
SOUTH AUSTRALIA. Wa have received South Australian papers to the 21st October. On the 14th the new port of Adelaide was opened by His Excellency Governor Gawler, Assisted by D. Mac Laren, Esquire, manager of the South Australian Company, in the presence of a large concourse of the colonists, upwards of 5000 persons being present. Adelaide, says the South Australian Register, .* now possesses landing places and wharfs not merely sufficiently commodious for its present commercial -requirements, but capable of extension, at small com- parative cost, so as to meet the exigencies of any prospective increase in its shipping:, and to obviate all necessity of any subsequent removal of the Cus- tom-house or landing-place. Vessels of 500 tons can haul alongside, and discharge or receive their cargoes, as comfortably and expeditiously as in St. Katherine's Docks. Ample storage for goods of all descriptions is provided, while a road above a mile in length, formed at an expense of £10,000, conne...

COLONIAL PRESS. The Licensed Victuallers' petition has been forwarded to the Attorney-General with a recommendation from the Chief Police Magistrate, to the effect, ''that all the requests made therein, should be complied with, with the exception of the amendment in the Sunday clause. It is probable, therefore, that a committee of the Council will be nominated to re-model the Licensed Victuallers' Act, and also to amend the clauses in the Quarter Sessions and Wholesale Dealers' Acts, which effect the interests of the trade.-Tasmanian Weekly Dispatch, Novem- ber 6. Regatta.-Great preparations are making for the ensuing Regatta. Many boats are building on purpose to compete for the prizes ; the amateurs are exercising themselves daily in hopes to bear away the palm of the Ladies' Purse.
