The bark Hamilton Ross, Captain R. F. Allen, made a very favourable passage from the Cape. The small pox, which had been raging there to such an extent that the farmers would not for a time bring their produce to town, has, we are happy to state, ceased its ravages ; there was not a single case left in town when the Hamilton Ross left. In the months of February and March last, the farmers had anticipated a famine in conse- quence of the drought, but the rains set in unexpected at the beginning of April, the plough was set to work and the seed put in, and when Captain Allen sailed the country was looking in ...

THE COURIER. Strciiuc et Vvosprrc. HOBART TOWN, TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 10. The Lieutenant-Governor has appointed Mr. Champ Surveyor-General, until the Queen's pleasure be made known. Mr. William Gunn succeed Mr. Champ as Chief Commissioner at the Caveat Board, and the office of Principal Superintendent of Con- victs has been given to Captain Bayley, late of the 21st Fusiliers. The Review ("will they ven- ture it?") has embraced another victim. The Sur- veyor-General fell asleep beneath the deadly shade of j the Upas tree. The dissolution of the Legislative Council was the signal for fêtes and 'rejoicings. It had become a kind of Long Parliament, for if not so odious, it was at all events equally tiresome. It had talked itself out. During the latter part of its existence scarcely a person was to be seen on the adjoining benches, and thus many a political gem of oratory has no doubt been lost for ever to Austral-Asiatic renown. Even the Bothwell Church Bill flagged in interest. By the bye,...

ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. DEBATE ON NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 10 November 1840
ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. DEBATE ON NEW ZEALAND. In the House of Commons, Lord Eliot brought forward his motion for the appointment of a Select Committee " to inquire into the statements contained in the petition of the merchants, bankers, and ship-owners of the city of London, (presented 22nd of May,) respecting the Coloni- zation of New Zealand." The subject, he observed, was of the greatest importance, and excited much -interest, not only among persons of the same station in life as those whose .petition he had presented, but among the labouring classes, driven out of employment by improvements in machinery and other causes. Such were the workiug.men of Paisley, whose memorial to Lord John Russell, repre- senting their distressed condition and their desire to emi- grate to New Ze.iland, had lately fallen under his notice. He rejoiced that the inclination lo remove to countries where labour was dear, and land cheap, was growing amongst the working population. With respect to the pla« ...

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 13 November 1840
ENGLISH EXTRACTS. Mr. Charles Robert Elliston, third son of the late Robert William Elliston, Esq., of theatrical celebrity, has recently invented a letter weight of considerable ingenuity, combining-at once utility with elegance. The peculiarity of the design arises from the accuracy of the balance being preserved, .however irregular the surface may be upon which the initrument is placed ; the beam represents the figure of a serpent, the mouth of which holds the letter balance, and «s this falls with the weight of the paper, the tail points to the exact weight indicated upon a graduated .cale stitched to the instrument. Steam Communication with India-We heartily congra» tulate the Anglo-Indian community on the ultimate esta- blishment of what we may justly term the real compre- hensive scheme. Your much talked of Precursors and dilatory Comprehensive! may now hide their diminished heads, for without holding large meetings, making long speeches, and throwing the apple of discord whe...
CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 13 November 1840
CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. Graham's Town and neighbourhood have had during . this week the benefit of some fine showers. These, mid Kia gpuial warmth of spring have thrown the orchards into full blossom, and given increased activity to all the varied operations of the farm-The crops aloug the coast, for twelve or fifteen miles inland, are spoken of as highly promising,-more in the interior they are rather backward, but still there is a great breadth of land under crop, and the season is not too far advanced fur sowing all other kinds of grain, except wheat. Towards the N. E. boundary much complaint is made of drought, and the crops are spoken of as buffering consider- ably from this cause, but lower down, on the Konnp, they are said to be particularly fine. An exlruct of a letter received by us yesterday from that quarter, contains the following cheering paragraph : " We have just had another most delightful rain, and which will set all the ploughs going for Indiau coin, forage, &c....
