POLICY OF LORD AUCKLAND IN INDIA. (From Papers laid on the Table of the House of Commons.) The most important portion of these docu- ments is that which proceeds from Sir Alexander Burnos, in correspondence with the secretary to the supreme government, apprising him of the arrival of a Russian agent at Cabool with a letter to Dost Mahomed from Count Simonich, Russian ambassador at the court of the Shah, with the reply of Dost Mahomed, throwing himself upon the protection of the Czar. Extract of a Letter from Captain Burna to W. H. Macnaghton, Esq. Cabool, Dec, 22,1837. With reference to my letter of the 20th instant, I have now the honour to inform you, for the information of the Right Honorable the Governor-General of India in Council, that the individual who has arrived here from St. Petcrsburgh is a veritable agent of ltussia, and brings lettors from the Shah of Persia and Count Simonich.

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 6 September 1839

MISCELLANEOUS. The arrangements for the visit of the Grand Duke Alexander of Russia to this country ha«e been com- pleted. Two of the five spacious mansions that com- pose Mivart's hotel li ii ve been taken by M. de Hen It. hausen, the Russian Consul-General, for his imperial highness and suite, from the 13lh instant until the 131b June.

M'hcn the signal was given they took it admirably, and for the first four or five strokes appeared to do nothing ; hut their speed, when their way was well on, was wonderful. They were stroke...

THE LAST SAD STROKE OF FATE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 6 September 1839

r-?-^ . .wrr,-^!! »HIIISjyiCT^ IS Ililli THE LAST SAD STROKE OF FATE. | The Advertiser lins once moro come to the charge. "Up Guards, and at them," is our motto-the memorable words of the Duke of Wellington on the field of Waterloo, when the last decisive chanre was made. Our friend " Expiry" is expiring-there aro visible symptoms of decay about his frame-he is obliged to get tip a dramatic, (to use a late pun of Mr. Justice Stephen's) dialogue in order to sustain his drooping spirits. But let us first dispose of " the Issue Bill." It appears, in opposition to every reason, that it is not an ex post facto law. Why not ? Because Blackstone says-"When after an action indif- ferent in itself is committed the legislator then for the first time declares it to have been a crime and inflicts a punishment upon the person who committed it. Here it is impossible that the party could foresee that an action innocent when it was done, should be afterwards converted to guilt by a subsequent law :...

MINUTE-MISCELLANEOUS. Council Chamber, 2nd September, 1839.     GENTLEMEN,-Having laid before you, in a separate Minute, the views which I entertain upon the subject on account of which you have been assembled on the present occasion, I am sure that it will be satisfactory to you that I should now also lay before you some communications which I have received from Her Majesty's Government, and several of which contain questions of much general interest. The first of these is the Marquess of Normanby's despatch of the 13th March last, enclosing a corres- pondence respecting the establishment of a Public School in Van Diemen's Land. On the 26th June last year, I addressed the Secre- tary of State upon this most interesting and most im- portant subject ; and I enclosed an open letter to Dr. Arnold, of Rugby, requesting him to select a Head Master. That letter has accordingly been forwarded ; and, from Dr. Arnold's character and position in England, I entertain ...

TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 13 September 1839

j TO CORRESPONDENTS. \ We are much obliged to Mr. Cotton, but must defer the enclosure until next week. To show how " Doctors differ," we have been reproached with allowing the person alluded to, to subside so quietly into a Government Office. The only motive for our abstaining to notice the matter further, has been the consideration alludvd to by our cor- respondent. The second case referred to. was and is the subject of systematic min epi csentation, and deserved to be treated as such. Upon matters of taste we mutt be allowed the extrcise of our own judgment. We agree with Mr. Molesworth Jeffery on the excellence of Milmun's prize poem, but it must be familiar to most per- sons in this colony capable of appreciating it. His de- finition of a rhapsody is not quite correct-it would more nearly approach a dithyrambic. The poems of Homer are rhapsodies. We must defer the notice of Mr. Wilkinson's retirement from Bothwell until next week.

The Courier. FRIDAY EVENING. SEPTEMBER 13,1339. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 13 September 1839

j cr it* e$nvi$v* FRIDAY EVENING. September 13,1339. The English intelligence reaches, to the 12th May. In another column will be found some extracts, from which we learn that the prospects of forming a Tory administration had been frus- trated, in consequence of the Queen refusing to dismiss some female members of her household who are supposed to enjoy her confidence. Sir R. Peel gave up the task in despair, and the Queen immediately sent for her former ministers, who it is most likely will resume office. Mr. Shiel is to be made Master of the Mint. Should not the Whigs be able to hold office, Lord Stanley, it is said, will have the Colonies. We perceive that a Company is formed for the purpose of colonizing New Zealand. Lord Dur- ham has taken a prominent part in the proceed- ings, and a vast number of influential and wealthy men have joined in the undertaking. The Go- vernment have sanctioned the project. We con- gratulate the colonists of this island on the new prospect it opens...

ENGLISH NEWS. COLONIZATION OF NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 13 September 1839

' ENGLISH NEWS. COLONIZATION OF NEW ZEALAND. We warn the humbler classes of British society io receive all the accounts of emigration with eau. tion and distrust. Let them weigh well and make many inquiries before they quit the places of their birth, even deformed as they now are with their prison workhouses. New Zealand is at an infinitely greater distance than Upper Canada, and to this more remote region we sec vast temptations held out to the sons and daughters of labour in this country. Are lhere no miseries of the middle passage in this case ? We know that those who tempt to emigration have just as great an interest in the work as those who took their victims from the wanner climate of Africa. They are become purchasers of vast tracts of land, the worth of which must entirely depend upon their being cultivated. We observe in a morning paper of Monday, a flourishing ac- count of a grand dejeuner given at the West India Dock Tavern, by a company ' who have purchased 600,000 acres...

At the opening of the Court Mr. Jones stated, that be« tween 6 and 7 o'clock on Saturday evening last, it had been intimated to him by the Lioutenant-Govcrnor, that he (Mr. Jones,) was. appointed to the office of Attorney General of this colony, vacant by the resignation of Edward Macdowell, Esq, Mr. Jones stated that he had not yet taken the oaths, and requested His Honor to ad- journ the Court for such a period as he thought fit. His Honor regretted that Mr. Jones had not given notice of the circumstance earlier, which would have pre- vented the necessity of the attendance this morning of himself and the gentlemen of the jury. Upon a recent occasion, when the Court was to have assembled at 10 o'clock, His Honor had discovered, at as late as half past 9, that he could not be present, and he immediately sent round notice to all the profession bef...
