COLONIAL PRESS. THK COACH UPSET-Narrow Escape.-On Friday even- ing, betweeu the hours of 5 and G o'clock, as the Diligence Stage Coach was coming into town, and when opposite Messrs. Williams, Campbell, & Co's. store, one of the wheel horses, a young high-spirited animal, took fright and bolted. AU four horses set off at a gallop down the street ; when opposite the Londou Tavern they increased their pace and scampered at a furious rate down the hill towards the wharf. Several men, women, and children with difficulty scrambled out of the way, and the coach passed within a few inches of à cart standing in the street. The driver for- tunately succeeded in turning round the corner of the .wharf, for otherwise, from the speed with which ihey were going, horses, coach and all, must inevitably bave plunged -into the river. They continued galloping past the wharf, .and turned safely round Mr. Suisled's corner, and took the next turn to the left, but in attempting to turn up George -...

PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 13 November 1840
PORT PHILLIP. The system of puffing has been carried to such an extreme by the Southern Australians, both in England and in the colony, .that the statements in their newspapers and other publications arc every where received with distrust. ? From this cause it arises that but scanty justice is sometimes done even to the real merits of South Australia in the neighbouring colonies, and it is this feel 1 jug of distrust in what we read and hear from South Australia which prevents us from noticing more frequently the onward progress of our sister province. Wc arc always glad, however, io avail ourselves of any feasible opportunity which presents itself for gleaning correct information as to the actual state and prospects of South Australia, and such an opportunity presents itself at present from the presence in Melbourne of a gentleman who has been long resident in Adelaide, and is also well ac- quainted with this and the neighbouring colonies. Our informant tells us that South Australi...

THE COURIER. gtremie et Croscrrr. HOBART TOWN, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 13. Wn have received by the Derwent, Captain Mac- pherson, papers and letters to the 24th of Juty. The Bill for tho Government of New South Wales has been withdrawn, with the exception of the XXX and XXXI clauses, which provide for the division of the territories of New South Wales into separate govern- ments. Port Phillip will thus become a separate government, and a means of extensive patronage from Home. The Bill is withdrawn with the view of inviting the opinions of the inhabitants of-New South Wales upon it, so that they may petition for the prof- fered boon. Lord John Russell might have spared himself the experiment.of sending out such »dove upon troubled waters. It will scarcely return with an olive branch in its mouth. We learn from positive authority that the South Australian principle of selling land at £1 the acre will be universally adopted at Port 'Phillip, with the restriction that the land will .be marked...

CAPTAIN JACK. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 13 November 1840
CAPTAIN JACK. IN the year 1823 I was employed as overseer on a sugar plantation on the east coast of the river Deme- rary, in South America. Early in that year an insur- rection broke out amongst the negroes, and the white servants on the estates were assembled at Stabroek, the capital of the colony, embodied into a corps of riflemen, and brigaded in different parts of the coun- try with the regular troops. It so happened that I was stationed with a party of the –th regiment, commanded by Colonel –––, close to the property on which I had for several years resided. I was thereby enabled to be of considerable use to the military authorities on several occasions, from my intimate knowledge of the localities of the neighbourhood, and of the character of the people by whom we were surrounded. The communications between the plantations on the coast and the town of Stabroek, is kept up by means of small schooners, which carry thither weekly the produce ready for shipping on board the mer- ...

FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 17 November 1840
FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. Cabrera arrived at Perpignan, and was greeted by some Spanish refugees with cries of "death to Cabreia." Orders had been given for his being sent on to Paris without stopping, but his exhausted condition prevented this. He has foin leen wounds, but none of them received in the last battle. He repeats thal he had 15,000 lions left, and would not have come into Frunce had he not been without money, ammunition, and protisious. The Const i tutionel claims this merit for the police under M. Thiers, but the opposition papers say Unit all the events in Spain are the mero products of La fortune de la guerre. The Moniteur oflicidlly confirma ihe uews of the recall of Admiral Baudin by the appointment of Vice-Admiral de Mackau to the command of the French naval division charged with the blockade of La Plata.
