SWAN RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 19 April 1841

SWAN RIVER. We have received Swan River papers to the 2oth February, from which we extract the fol lowing : — Robbery at the Commissariat Office—We stated in oui last, that William Longworth, a private in the 51st regt had been committed to take his trial at the next Quartet Sessions tor being concerned in this robbery. After his committal, however, Longworth made certain disclosures to Chipper the constable, who at once acquainting the magistrates therewith, a warrant was issued for the ap. prehension of John Wade ; and upon a party proceeding to search the premises of Mr. H. E. Hall, Wade who resided in the house, was taken into custody at 3 o'clock in -the morning of Wednesday last. On the same day, Wade was brought up for examina tion before the magistrates, and the prisoner Longworth being admitted Queen's evidence, deposed that the rob bery ,at the treasury had been planned by himself and Wade when they were both in Freraantle Gaol about 5 months back. Wade proposed that the r...

THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. MONDAY, APRIL 19. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 19 April 1841

THE LAUNCESTON COURIER, MONDAY, APRIL 19.   It is currently rumoured in tbe higher circles that the determination of Government is to force tlie principle of the obnoxious Road Act unon the people of Van Diemen s Land ; and although the existing bill, was arawn up, amended, and re-amended, time alter time pre viously to its passing the Council, yet it has been found to be inoperative (good for nothing) owing to the inconsistencies and absurdities embodied in almost every clause, which our legislators were unable to discover although re peatedly pointed out to them by the press du ring the sittings, when the bill was so hurriedly and forcibly got through the sessions. This it is said can easily be accomplished ; nothing remains to overcome the difficulty when a few defects are removed, whichJiave been the cause of the defeat, leaving the true principle of the bill (taxation) in their original state. Some have gone so far as to say that the At torney-General has received ...

LATE ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 26 April 1841

LATE ENGLISH NEWS. The Times of the 28th Deceniher announces j as positive the fact, that the Austrian Ambassa } dor in Paris had intimated verbally to the French Government, that the continuation of I its armaments had excited throughout Germany great apprehension of war, and that, in order to allay that apprehension, as well as to avoid ! the possibility of any collision occuring which might disturb the peace so generally desired, it would be well that the French Government | should confine its military preparations within \ a more circumscribed compass. To this repre sentation the French Government is said to have replied, that there existed no cause what ever for uneasiness on the part of neighbouring powers, that the present Ministry conceived themselves bound to carry out the military and naval armaments commenced by M. Theirs, but that, after all, the whole standing army of France did not amount to more than 460,000 [men, of whom 73,000 were employed in Africa. I At the coucl...

THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. MONDAY, APRIL 26. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 26 April 1841

THE LAUNCESTON COURIER MONDAY, APRIL HB. There is a clause in the Licensed Victuallers Act which has beeu ridiculed and pointed out by the press times without number, yet the wisdom of our legislators has never been able to discover its absurdity. The clause we allude to provides that if the licensed victualler allows Any person to get drunk in his house or pre mises, he incurs a heavy penalty. Now it is well known that two -r three glasses will make some men drunk, wh e others after two or three bottles will remar^ sober. How is it possible then that the publ&n can be expected to judge precisely of the onslitu tion of his customer— the drinking caplcities of his guests. Can he, when two persos enter his house and call for something to dt nk, say to the one, I cannot serve you, Sir ; I lerceive by your countenance that you are onljU half pint man — a two-glass customer; but ai to the other gentleman, he is a ibree-bottle-imii, he may drink with perfect safety, both to liimse...
