SOUTH AUSTRALIA. PROGRESS OF THE COLONY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 20 September 1839
SOUTH AUSTRALIA. PROGRESS OF THE COLONY. &nbsp; In our last we detailed at some length the progress of the colony during the past half-year as regarded its popu- lation, its revenue, and its commerce. On the first of these points we showed that in two years and seven months - since the 28th December, 1836, the date of the establishment of the province, its population had in- creased from 200 to 8250 souls ; that its revenue, con- sisting only of duties on spirits, wines, tobaccos, and publicans' licenses, amounted, for the last six months, to above £5000 ; and that the arrivals in Port Adelaide, for the same period, consisted of 99 vessels, 21,709 tons, equalling the entire amount of the last year's shipping in the province. We may add here as a fact worthy of notice, that it appears from the latest Tasmanian, a Ho- bart Town paper, that the number of vessels in the Der- went, at the date of its publication, was nine - their tonnage 2276. The average number of vessels in Por...

INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 27 September 1839
INDIA. The news received from the scat of war is not of a later date than that which we announced last week. We shall, however, in our next num- ber, furnish some interesting details of the state of the army at Kandahar. When we first perused the statement of circumstances relating to Major General Nott'i being remanded to his origiuul command of it biigadc in the army of the Indus, we were induced to think it an act of great injustice perpe- trated against that officer-but on giving a little more con- sideration to the subject, «e are inclined to doubt the cor- rectness of our first impressions. Feelingly alive to the interests of the Bengal anny, vic viewed the question with that bias which often, without one's perceiving it, hood- winks the judgment and malees us jump to a conclusion unsupported by facts, und we are fortunate if vvn perceive the imposition'before we peipctrate an act of injustice by promulgating the erroneous decision-the Major-General's complaints, ns we have se...
SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 27 September 1839
SOUTH AUSTRALIA. In the case of Stephen v. Stephenson, which is reported at great length in the South Australian papers, a verdict was returned for the defendant, the jury, of whom Mr. Hall, the private ¡Secre- tary, was foreman, being of opinion that the al- teration in the original letter had been effected by Mr. Stephen. This opinion, they sait!, they had been enabled to form by the aid of three magnifying lenses. Mr. Stephen was about to leave for England.

We men- tioned, a fortnight since, that the hopesof a Tory Administration had been frustrated, in conse- quence of the objection of the Queen to remove .orné of the female members of her household a condition upon which the Duke of Wellington and Sir Kobert Peel both insisted as a prelimi- nary to their resuming office. It will be seen by Un extract in another patt'of Our' paper to- whom more immediate reference was made-namely, the Marchioness of Normanby, and a sUter of Lord Morpeth's, both interested in the Irish policy of the Cabinet, upon which' question it was most likely Sir1 Robert Peel would have to encounter theseverest opposition. For the sake of » example? therefore, and suspecting so dan- gerous an influence near the throne, the Right fíonofafele Baronet thought proper to claim the rieht of exe...

The Courier. FRIDAY EVENING, SEPTEMBER 27, 1339. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 27 September 1839
The Courier. FRIDAY EVENING. September 27, 1339. &nbsp; We perceive in this day's Gazette a notice hav- ing reference to the establishment of the new sys- tem of Education adopted under the superinten- dence of the Board. We understood that a report was first to have been published of the existing state of the Schools, the number of scholars, and their proficiency in the different branches of edu- cation in which they are instructed, with an ac- count of the condition and capacity of the masters, which might serve as a basis for future operations. These regulations are however, as we must sup- pose, framed with a due regard to the extent and local wants of the population of this colony-we mean more particularly in a statistical point of view, as to the number of children—being twenty in a township, and fifteen in a district-for whom a master or mistress may be claimed. There is a beautiful gradation of pence which may be weekly exacted by the instructors from the parents of ...

SYDNEY. The Tea Trade_Bv the arrival of the Orwell from Sourabayo, we receive intelligence of the fact that the tea trade with Chitin is again going on ; and that in conse- quence many vessels lying at the port of Sourabaya have determined on prqeee'ding direct tor cargoes. Some bud already departed.-Commercial Journul, Sept. 4. Hool,- the reports of the state of the English wool mar- kets are not so favourable as tile season would have led us to expect. In May, the month immediately preceding shear-duy, the stock of wool is generally light ;.but this year appears to be an exception. flic trade is heavy, and prices have receded, but not to the extent that might have been expected from the extremely limited demand for goods. The next sales of colonial wools in London were not ex- pected to take place before the latter end of June; and it was feared that the expected arrivals from these colonies would not Improve the market -Sydney Monitor, Oil and Bone-London, May 10_Sperm, ¿t'93 Jos...

SUPREME COURT. CIVIL SlTTINGS. Before His Honor the Chief Justice.- Trial* by Special Juries of twelve. Tau itsnay, 19th Sittemueii. Jacomb v. Ries &nbsp; The plaintiff in this action claimed ¿£500, as damages for the non-delivery of some wheat. The question ap- peared to be whether the defendant really contracted to supply it himself, or only acted as an agent to obtain it from his tenant. The jury believing the latter, found a verdict for the defendant. Patterson v. Kimberley and Lewis, Executors of Forbes. This was an action for use and occupation by Forbes, in his lifetime, and by the defendants, as executors since his death. The contract ceasing with the death of Forbes, it was admitted by the plaintiff's counsel that he could not charge the defendants in this form of action, as executors. The plaintiff failing in her proof as to the residue of the claim, (about £7 only,) was nonsuited as to this. Carter v. Archer. This was an action in which Air. Cat ter, of this town,...
