The Courier. FRIDAY EVENING, OCTOBER 4, 1339. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 4 October 1839
g^g &Quvï$ir* FRIDAY EVENING. October 4,1339. There is much in faith-it can remove moun- tains-it can abolish resolutions, and all for the sake of consistency of principle. The creed of a saint of pious memory, whose orthodoxy, if possible, exceeded his devotion, was founded upon the impossibility of the articles of the faith which he professed. Credo quia impossibile was his motto-and to mingle sacred with profane things -to unite the past with the present, by a glorious instance of practical piety and excess of belief, it might seem that the religion of the Govern- ment was precisely of the same character as that of the canonized saint. It is well, indeed, that such an authority can be discovered in favour of recognised nonsense ; but so it is, that in politics as well as religion we have fools. Folly itself is harmless, and can be excused ; but united to a badness of purpose, and a base principle of ac- tion, it is no longer worthy of being treated with that indifference ...

INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 11 October 1839
INDIA. We publish today from the Commercial Gazette, and India, China, and Australian Telegraph of the 6th Murch, a very interesting statement relative to the imports of tea into the United Kingdom in the years 1836 37, and 38, showing au average annual con snmptiou of that article of more than Ihirty-seien millions of pounds, and employing in its transport about 30,000 tons of shipping. It may be some time before Assam and the contiguous countries can supply the whole of the above quantity, but we see no reason why it may not he furnished in lime. From statements of cost which we have seen, we shall not, we think, be considered extravagant in fixing four unnas a pound as the duty, which the article could afford to pay to the Government of India, in addition to the Is. Gd. levied in England. This duty would yield a revenue of ninety-two lakhs of rupees per annum, and nearly make up fur the loss sustained by the destruction of the opium trade. This would be the direct benefit to this...

LAUNCESTON SUPREME COURT. SATURDAY, 5THE OCTOBER. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 11 October 1839
LAUNCESTON SUPREME COURT. SATURDAY, 5th OCTOBER. &nbsp; &nbsp; The Sessions commenced thi3 morning before His Honor Mr. Justice Montagu and a Military Jury. William Gibson was tried for a burglury committed in the house of Mr. John Jones, a resident in Launceston, on the 20th August last. It appeared that the prisoner lived in the neighbourhood, and lind been in company with the prosecutor during some part of the night in question, nt an inn in the town. Taking advantage of his absence from home for a short time, he broke open the door of Jones' house, and stole out of it several articles of trifling value, some of which were found upon bim when appre- hended' next day. The jury found him guilty, and the prisoner was sen- tenced to be transported for life. William Windered, and George Drew, two sawyers, work- &nbsp; ing on the banks of the Tamar, were convicted of stealing a sheep out of the flock of Captain Stewart, which had been running near to the place w...
The Courier. THURSDAY EVENING, October 10, 1839. RATIONAL[?] OF THE COURT DIFFICULTY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 11 October 1839
«Ein Courier» THURSDAY EVENING, October 10,1839. KATIONALK OF TUB COURT DIFFICULTY. It is not to be expected (hat during' tho immé- diate fermeUt produced by the ministerial crisis for there were evidently two of them-the con- duct of the Queen and Sir Robert Peel should be otherwise treated than as a question of party. Men's minds are too much engrossed by the great struggle of opinion going forward in the country not to take advantage of the circum- stance in tire way most likely to make it sub- serve their own political views. Yet, whatever ?colouring may be given to it at either side, there is nothing in the whole matter that bears the -smallest reference to public principle. It resolves itself into a simple point of expediency on the , one hand, and of personal feeling on the other. Sir Robert Peel felt that it would be desirable, knowing that he had a majority of the Commons against him, to seem to have the Queen with him, and, for that purpose, he required to be vested with t...
MISCELLANEOUS. THE DUKE OF WELLINGTON'S GRAND [?]ALL AT APSLEY HOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 11 October 1839
MISCELLANEOUS. TUP DUKE OF W C1 LINGTON's GUAN» DALL AT APSLEY HOUSE. His grace gave a splendid ball, last night, nt Apsley House, in compliment to the Hereditary Grand Duke of Russia. There could not have been less than 1000 of the nobility and gentry in town present, for the carriages were setting down company without intermission fur three hours and a half. A strung body of the police were in utteudance, under the able direction of Superintendent Raker, aud frum their strictly euforcing order, uu accident what- ever occurred. The whole range of saloons, including the gallery, seven in number, were thrown upen on this occasion. To give a description of those splendid apartments, and the enumeration of the different objects presented to the gallant owner by ali the foreign potentates, would occupy a volume. The matchless gallery, upwards of 200 feet ia length by 85 in width, was the hall room. It is hung with rich amber satin damask, from exquisitely carved and gilded cornices, the...

ÄUr Cú'nvttv* FRIDAY EVENING. Ocroniän I!, 1339. The lingering ship is at- last off, laden with despatches-consigned with' bags to Downing street, of greater weight and moro portentous import than the whole administration of Colonel Arthur ever supplied upon any single occasion. It seemed, indeed, as if the vessel were " loth to depart," so many lingering looks did she cast on the gradually diminishing figures of those whose fortunes she bore away. Well might the captain feel that he carried not Caesar, but that there was every occasion to fear. " Casarcm velds ne time" was not his motto ; and our colonial com- mandants, instead of committing thoir fortunes and their fates to the deep, in the full confidence of achieving the victory of right, were praying for some sudden breath of chance to give them the opportunity of adding " more last words" to their already well primed and well loaded des- patches-some supplementary match which, when touched by the talismanic finger of diplomacy...

GRAND MIDLAND AGRICULTURAL MEETING AT CAMPBELL TOWN. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 11 October 1839
GRAND MIDLAND AGRICULTURAL MEETING AT CAMPBELL TOWN. Last Wednesday week was the first day appointed for this meeting, and, notwithstanding the unpropitious state of the weather, a large concourse of the surrounding gentry and landholders, even from a distance of forty or fifty miles, came trooping in to Campbell-town at an early hour, being heralded by the respective representatives of their flocks and herds-the competitors for the different prizes-but we regret to say that the conduct of some of the parties present, who were not members of the asso- ciation, towards the waning of the evening, when the wine is generally in and the wit out, made it incumbent on us to inquire whether they had not brought any long cared thistle-feeders to the fair, as emblems of their farms and intellects. The interruption, however, such us it was, was speedily set right, and the proceedings terminated in the utmost good humour; and the desire on the part of every one to promote the objects of a socie...

ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. THE LATE POLITICAL EVENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 11 October 1839
ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. THE LATE POLITICAL EVENTS. With regard to the effect of all these proceed ings upon the fate of the country and the success of the Conservative party, we do not entertain "the shadow of a doubt. We are not of those who think that they will tend to shake the au. thority of the crown. The people of Great Britain will retain as firmly as ever their devotion to the throne, and their respect and attachmbnt to its present occupant. But they will more than ever hate and despise the evil advisers who ha\e hazarded the welfare of the nation by a pitiful intrigue about the retention in place of a few bedchamber women, the members of their oun immediate families. The Whigs have, indeed contrived by this last affair to do what could' scarcely have been thought possible-to sink themselves in universal estimation still lower than they were before. If the Conservative party was not otherwise in a condition to govern the country, it is as well that it should be pre- vented by ...

THE ASSISTANT DRAPERS' PETITION. " Ñow's the time and now's the bout."- Burns. " Seven's the main."- Crockford. Of all the agitations of the time-and agitation it useful in dtstuf bing the duckweed that is apt to gather on the surface bf human affairs-the ferment of the assistant -shopmen in the metropolis is perhaps the most beneficial. Many vital queries have lately disturbed the public mind ; for instance,'ought the fleet of the Thames Yacht Club to be reinforced, in the event «f« war with Russia, or should, the Little Pedlington Yeomanry be called out, in case of a rupture' with Prussia ? But tites« ate merely national questions; Whereas the Drapera' movement suggests sm inquiry of paramount importance to mankind in general-* ' namely, *"When ought we to leave off?' I It is the standard complaint against jokers, and whist players, and children, whether playing or crying-that they ' never know when to leave off' It is the common charge açainst English winters and flannel waistcoa...
