The Courier. THURSDAY EVENING, SEPTEMBER 12, 1839. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 13 September 1839

g^K^BBaa»jB»laW^agB»»gamiMMa^aB»aa^»C^alam^=b¿K^biai*a^jalw*^i>a w+-*M)* O&e 0«nrf¿T, THURSDAY EVENING, September 12, 1839. The Hindostan has arrived, bringing us later intelligence than that which has already reached us by the way of Launceston. In the present nicely balanced state of parties at home, the Tories can not keep their ground in Parliament, and there is no doubt that a dissolution will be resolved upon forthwith. The exhibitions of the Chartists-the pike and pistol men-the torchbearers and mid- night legislators, will add considerably to the support of the Tory party at the elections ; for it is a maxim very well understood in England, that; when bad men conspire good men should combine. The immediate cause of the retirement of ministers was the proposed abolition of the Con- stitution of Jamaica, op which the ministers had bp't a majority of ftvp, several pf the Radica} sec- tion having joined the opposition. Our speculations, however, have been inter- rupte...

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

SYDNEY. The following ships left this place for various ports in India, and mostly for the avowed purpose of pro- curing cargoes of rice and grain for our consumption, within the last eight months, and may therefore be daily expected, viz-Lord William Bentinck, Renown, Lady Nugent, Maitland, James Pattison, Pero, Eliza- beth, Portsea, Boyne, North Briton, Charles Kerr, Lady M'Naughteu, Hope, Susan, Hebe, Frances Char- lotte, Potentate, James Lang, Planter, Royal George, Orwell, and Henry Wellesley. The master of the brig David, from South Australia, bound to New Zealand, has been compelled by a refrac- tory crew to put in here, with a view of getting the ring- leaders punished, but we fear he will be disappointed, as our maritime laws are defective. They manage these things better at Van Diemen's Land; there, well grounded complaints are punished by the tread-wheel and chain gang. But what is considered law in one colony, is held to be illegal in the other. The visitors at the signa...

The Courier. FRIDAY EVENING, SEPTEMBER 20, 1339. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 20 September 1839

glfrg Cflaiytgy» FRIDAY EVENING. September 20,1339. There are governments de facto ana de jure; there are also governments depending upon popu- lar will, which " a breath can make as a breath has made ;" but the govermentof this colony defies all human calculation as to the particular founda- tion whence it derives its support, or even main- tains its existence. It is indeed sui generis-as original, and apparently as indigenous, as the kan- garoo which springs about amidst our solitary woods. It carries a bag too, wherein it stows away its offspring in the shape of despatches, a glimpse of which is occasionally allowed to visit us through the dimly-lighted columns of the 'Tiser, that stands foster-father to diminutive scrapä and shavings of intelligence- such as the whereabout of "storms"-the construction of a new jetty-or the progress of poesy evinced in a sublime invocation to the "rare old whale." " Misfortunes," it is said, " make us acquainted with strange bedfellows;" and it m...

?i)t éijtvtvisu THURSDAY ÈVENING^SeptÈmbêr 19,1839. - We subjoin »letter of that distinguished phi- losopher, Sir John Herschel, on the establish- ment and conduct of the Schools at the Cape of Good Hope, referred to in a former number, in which we gave the plan submitted in consequence to the Legislative Council by the Governor of that colony. It is a document well worthy the atten- tion of onr government, abounding as it does in sound practical views untainted by any spurious speculation. And in. the first instance, we would impress upon.1 those in authority' here, the expe- diency as well as policy of establishing a central authority, different from that constituted by ' the Board,' of united sects and no sects which at pre- sent holds undivided sway over the destinies of the rising generation. It is not that the members of which it is composed are not all excellent men in their different walks of life, but the attention which such a subject claims is too much for their 'occupati...

ENGLISH NEWS. STATE OF CRIME IN ENGLAND. (Abridged from the Morning Chronicle.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 20 September 1839

ENGLISH NEWS. STATE OF CRIME IN ENGLAND. ( Abridged from the Morning Chronicle. J We have before us the first Report of the Commissioners appointed to inquire as to the best means of establishing an efficient constabulary force in the counties of England And Wales ; and most important information it certainly fur- nishes with respect to a very large proportion of our population-the criminals. It is stated, p. 180 " That there is on average of upwards of 100,000 com- mitments annually to the gaols, of the able-bodied popula- tion of England and Wales, for criminal offences; that there are from 11,000 to 20,000 persons constantly in the criminal gaols, of which number a large proportion are persons known as living wholly by habitual depredation ; and, from inquiries made in a large number of the indi- vidual cases of prisoners confined for theft in these gaols, we find that, on the average, such prisoners, in the rural districts, where there is no trained constabulary, have been at la...

SUPREME COURT.   Civil Sittings. Before His Honor the Chief Justice, and a Special Jury of twelve. Monday,16th September.   Bisdee v. Loane. This was an action brought to recover the sum of £75, which bad been paid by the plaintiff to the defendant, for the purchase of some land, upon an agreement, that if the Secretary of State should reject Mr. Loane's application for the land, that the money was to be returned with in- terest. The Colonial Secretary's letter to Mr. Loane was put in, informing him that as he had neglected to make his application to the proper offficers here, the Secretary of State had thought it unnecessary to take his claim into consideration. Mr. Horne, for the defendant, objected to the receipt of this evidence, and contended that the Secretary of State's Despatch should be produced, but His Honor held, that as the Court had no power to compel the production of this, the other evidence was admissible.
