NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 25 October 1839

NEW ZEALAND. Now that New Zealand is in a fair way of being regularly colonized, every information re- specting it must prove interesting and valuable to all who have an eye to it, whether immediately or remotely. That it will be colonized in good earnest, and that its progress as a colony will be rapid and successful, we believe its own internal resources, together with the formidable companies that have been formed, both in England and Scotland, for the purpose of developing and im- proving these resources, afford sufficient grounds on which to found our anticipations. To persons intending to proceed thither, or who may be desirous to purchase land there, it will no doubt be important to have some bona fide information as to the manner in which these purchases are usually transacted. We therefore subjoin the following extract from the recently published work of J. S. Polack, Esq., one of the Colonial Society, London, and brother, we understand, to Mr. A. Polack, of Sydney. ThiB au...

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 25 October 1839

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. The last Gazette announces that Mr. Gilles being desirous of retiring from his official duties, his Ex- cellency the Governor has beeu pleased to accept his resignation. Remembering the days when Mr. Gilles stood by the cause of South Australia at its utmost uced, and knowing also that amid all the struggles and dissensions through which the province has passed, and over which, we may add, it has triumphed, Mr. Gilles never forgot his duties as a good citizen and an enthusiastic colonist. His heart-amid in- firmities common to humanity-has always been in the right place. We cannot take leave of him, in his official capacity, without expressing our sense of the obligations under which he lins placed nil true South Australians, or our hope that he may long be spared to enjoy, in his retirement, the fruits of his successful enterprise as a colonist. Mr. Gilles only retires from public life to public usefulness. Adelaide Infirmary.-We rejoice to observe that the stateof...

The Courier. FRIDAY EVENING, OCTOBER 25,1339. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 25 October 1839

íTftf CiMtvt$t% I FRIDAY EVENING, October 25,1339. We have received English papers to the 17th of June. We find however from tile Sydney j journals just come to hand, that intelligence to | the 22nd had reached that colony. It seems hardly probable the ministry can hold out against the defection of the Radicals on the one hand, and the combined opposition of the Tories on the other. " Only tell us," said Mr. Warburton, a leading man, and one of ' the seven philosophical radicals,' " that you are prepared to adopt progressive reform -that you do not regard the Reform Bill as final, and whatever may be the disappointment which accompanies delay, we will still support you : we will patiently look forward to the development of your measures. Give us a declaration of your sen- timents in which we can confide." Sir Robert Peel came in with obstetric aid to the assistance of Lord John ; he delivers him of his opinion and interprets his mind. He says, "I perfectly understand the noble lord ...

ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 25 October 1839

ENGLISH NEWS. From Lower Canada, we learn, that the Court Martial, which had sat during five months and a half, bad closed its session. The last prisoner tried and found guilty w,as a man named Mott. The number of prisoners tried had amounted to 110, of whom 12 bad been executed and 9 acquitted. The remainder were in gaol under sentence of death. The Montreal Herald, of the 6th May, says, so abundant had last year's harvest been, that, notwith- standing the greatly increased consumption of grain in consequence of the presence of so many additional troops, the quantity of flour which would be shipped from the Upper Province for Montreal would be far greater than during any former year, and that a considerable portion of it would be exported to Great Britain. Seven of the eight American prisoners taken at Ambcrtsburgh, in Jan., 1838, and who had been imprisoned, in the Citadel of Quebec, for the last sixteen months, bad been set at liberty on the boundary line, at St. Ilegis, by Mr. S...

The Courier. THURSDAY EVENING, OCTOBER 24,1839. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 25 October 1839

?i)t Courier» THURSDAY EVENING, Octomr 24,1839. Tub Sydney papers are filled with successive articles upon the relative merita of the Protestant and Roman Catholic creeds. A new paper has been started under the avowed patronage of the Catholic community ; and the Colonist and the Gazetti on the other Bide, rich in the theological lore of Exeter Hall, revive the war of Dens and the secrets of the confessional, to the great scan- dal of all religion, the violation of decency, and the subversion of everything like a christian spirit of charity, which should animate the members of two churches occupied in promoting the same end. We are sorry that our contemporaries of the Sis- ter Colony cannot find other subjects on which to exercise their ingenuity. The people are neces- sarily arrayed into two opposite factions, and as ' these colonies are not remarkable for the mode- ration of their inhabitants, we may suppose that the odium theologicum loses none of its original bitterness in being...

SYDNEY. THE CESSATION OF TRANSPORTATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 25 October 1839

SYDNEY. __ THE CESSATION^ OF TRANSPORTATION. Since the publication of our last number, we have glean- ed some additional information respecting the system of convict discipline proposed to be introduced in the pro- jected penal settlement at Norfolk Island, which we hasten to communicate to our readers, although ive cannot pledge ., ourselves ns to its accuracy. It is said that the British government purpose erecting an extensive Penitentiary on the island, following the mo- del of the American State Prisons at Siugsing and else- where. 1'he convicts are to be kept in solitary confinement, end each is to be taught some particular trade, by which he may be enabled to gain nn honest livelihood on his return to society. This is understood to be the general outline of the plan which it is intended to adopt, and it is said that, with the view of carrying the scheme into effect, estimates of tlie probable expense of erecting a Penitentiary on the necessary scale of magnitude, have been re...

SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 25 October 1839

SYDNEY. Mr. James Charles Russell, surgeon, was called up on Monday to receive judgment of the Court for a criminal misdemeanor, in dissecting the body of one Macintosh, without sanction or competent authority for so doing, with intent to defeat the ends of justice. Their Honors the three Judges went at great length into the case. In delivering the sentence of the Court, His Honor, Mr. Justice Willis addressed the defendant, and said, "Charles James Russell, in passing the sentence of   the Court, it would be needless, after the manner in which I have endeavoured to examine the charge brought against you, to do more than say, that you have not denied that charge, save with regard lo the law which applies to it. I trust, and from circum- stances which have occurred since the event took place, for which you are now about to receive the sentence of this Court, I think I may safely infer, that you are heartily sorry for your misdoing.
