INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 27 November 1840
INDIA. Rangoon.-We learn from private correspondence from Rangoon, of date 4th August, that King Tharawaddie is making most magnificent preparations for his coronation. One circumstance, however, seems to imply, that this august ceremony is to be performed with ' maimed rites.' It has been, we are informed, the custom upon these coronation inaugura- tions, formally to proclaim the heir apparent to the throne, n part of the ceremony which Tharawaddie does not appear in- clined to admit on the present occasion. 'What the puissant monarch's fears or scruples may be on this head we do not know. Queen Elizabeth, if we recollect right, had some similar scruples as lo naming her successor ; but not probably altogether from the same motives with King Tharawaddie. Hurharu. We understand that there is some chance of the wood pavement, now coming into use at home, being introduced into Calcutta-working models ami plans have been, we hear, alreudy laid before the conservancy authorities fai- ll...

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 27 November 1840
MISCELLANEOUS. Indolent Habits.-Indolence consists in the indulgence of a heavy inactive disposition, leading you continually lo delay till to-morrow what ought to be done to-day ; or, when not leading you to postpone, causing you to perform your work in a manner that leaves it only half-done. When you read or study, you should concentrate the ener- gies of your mind upon the subject, und fix your attention as if you were iu quest of gold beneath a'foreign soil. Two persons will read the same book ; the one will read with the application of the mind and remember u great poition of its conti nts ; the other will read with a kind of laxity and forget them. It is a lamentable ciicumstance that so many forget what they read, and appear to have little profiled from what they have done towurds improv- ing their intellectual powers. Such may complain of their memories-the early deficiencies iu their mental train- ing-the obtuseness of their minds; but the chief ground of complaint will in ...

LOCAL. THK Rta*T"-As the day appointed for the'com- ing off' of this annual fête approaches, the interest increase«, and upon the present occasion mainly centres in the boat race of the amateurs, concernina which the belles of Hobart Town are all on the qui tiri, and nothing else is talked of, or thought of, but our amateurs. Amongst the candidates, we hear of lèverai of the legal profession, who intend to make brief work of it for once, and give up cases, clients, and fees, for oars, sails, and boats. Some of our public officers also (it is pleasing to them to pull together,) take an car in hand on this occasion, when instead of judging they will be judged, trying they «ill be tried, and in lieu of surveying they will be surveyed. All this is just as it should be. Let har- mony and goodwill be the order of the day. We have been asked to give the definition of an ama- teur. We decline to do so now ; it is too late, and sport must not be spoiled. Mr. James Wilson, the indefatigable S...

THE COURIER. Strenue et Prospere. HOBART TOWN, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 27. WE have perused several columns of this week's Review, which have been specially devoted to our- selves, the great aim and object of which, as is the case with all the old harridan's essays, would seem to be not only the perversion of truth, but the mysti- fication of everything like common sense or reason, for her reasoning faculties, if ever indeed she had any, have altogether evaporated and given place to a motley combination of fraud and falsification-the antiquated dregs of what at the best of times was unsound wine. She prides herself on her dexterity in shifting and shuffling from one position to another, but forgets that her gait is so lamentable a hobble, that every fresh step she takes is the signal for re- newed mirth. Her chief policy, however, is the filling up the picture which she "presents as full as possible with figures, so a3 to relieve, nay, in a mea- sure, adorn her own hideousness. It is thus s...

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 27 November 1840
SOUTH AUSTRALIA. Our advices from hence are to the 5th instant. Judge Cooper, in his address to the Grand Jury, com- pletely vindicated the conduct of Major O'Halloran, and refuted the absurd positions advanced by some of our contemporaries upon the subject of the Big Mur- ray tribes. The Surveyor-General, E. C. Frome, has sent in his report of the country around the lakes Alexandrina and Albert, from which it appears that there are up- wards of 50,000 additional acres of valuable land available for the colony. The particulars of the re- port are as follows : " My route to this district was by the usual track to Mr. Morphetts station on the Murray, crossing the Bremer (called by the natives ' Meechi') at the spot generally known by the overland parties as ' Lang horn's Station.' There is so much available land between this crossing place and the Lake, that I am led to call the attention of your Excellency to the district (Terrapelum). The deep bed of the Bremer was dry ; but from th...

SUPREME COURT—SITTINGS IN BANCO. FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 27. Before His Honor the Chief Justice and Puisne Judge Montagu. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 1 December 1840
SUPREME COURT-SITTINGS IN BANCO. FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 27. Before His Honor the Chief Justice and Puisne Judge Montagu. His Honor Judge Montagu remarked, that this was the last day of term, and he had a few observations to pass respecting the application made on n previous day, relative to the re- turn of writs. I'understand from Mr. Sheriff Fraser that the proposed amendment will throw an additional responsibility upon bim ; in this way he would become responsible for the error of his officers, and great difficulty existed to obtain men of respectability to act in the capacity of bailiffs ; now in Eng- land it is very different, the attorneys serve the summonses themselves. The Sheriff rose and said, that the attorneys never men- tioned any irregularities as existing in his department before this period, and he must remark he felt rather surprised. Mr. Young observed, that the wish of the attorneys simply rested on a desire to have writs of execution returned within to many days after t...
