INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 8 November 1839

INDIA. THROUGH the kindness of Captain Lane, of the ship Diana, we have been favoured with Calcutta papers to the 16th of August, from winch we learn that the long anticipated blow had Leen struck at last between the troops of Mahomet Ali and those of the Sultan, in which the former were victorious, having defeated the Turks with considerable loss. This much looked for event may possibly bring about a European war. The policy of our Indian Government forms a striking contrast to that of our Home Govern- ment, being totally the reverse of the non- interference rule of action. War was about to be declared against the Burmese, and the four native regiments, two of cavalry and infantry stationed at Moulmein, had been ordered to hold themselves in readiness for a campaign. We have no further news from the army of the Indus, which had been for nearly two mouths recruiting at Kandahar. The English intelligence received at Calcutta reaches to the exact period-the 18th June of that which we ...

CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 8 November 1839

CHINA. The British merchants at Canton have ad- dressed a remonstrance to Lord Palmerston on the conduct of the Chinese government, and praying for the fulfilment of the guarantee given to them by Her Majesty's superintendent at Canton, upon the surrender of their opium. It concludes thus After the completion of the delivery of the opium sur- rendered, the High Commissioner has expressed an inten- tion of opening the legal trade, under new regulations, but circumstances do not justify us entertaining the expecta- tion that these regulations will afford any security for our Iii es or property. We therefore think your Lordship will be convinced that some serious alterations in our relations with this empire ore indispensably necessary ; and that British commerce cm never safely be carried on, and certainly can never flourish in a country where our persons and property are alike at the mercy of a capricious government. in conclusion, it only remains for us again to urge upon your Lords...

CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 8 November 1839

CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. We have received the Graham's Town Jour- nal up to August. The particulars of the en- gagements of the emigrant farmer* with tne Zoolas had been confirmed, in which »* appen« «ear 3000 of the latter were slain. The &*w depredations still continue ; but it appears the «J» and object of the Graham t Town Journal, Uhotigh one.of the very best colonial papers we' have seen, to dwell upqn these border outrages ith the same sort of delight which some of the Tory journals at home exhibit in collecting and setting forth with desperate fidelity, the murders flhich are perpetrated in Ireland. The crops promised well for the ensuing «cason ; indeed, those early sown have grown so luxuriantly, that it has been found necessary to cut oats and barley for green forage, to prevent them rolling on the ground. We regret to say, that accounts from the Northern Frontier describe the inhabitants ns suffering very severely from the measles. At Gruaf lieinet this disease has exh...

tri«? c«0tttrt*t% FRIDAY EVENING. NOVEMBER 8,1339. TRANSPORTATION may now be deemed at an end-except if we lake into consideration the purified reversion of Norfolk Island, or any other station in this hemisphere whither prisoners mny be transferred for the benefit of undergoing experimental reparation of their morals, whether by means of the Sing Sing System, the Social System, or any other system which it may please our wiseacres in penal science to adopt; it being a matter of uncertainty at present what plan j is to be pursued at Norfolk Island under the superintendence of Captain Maconochie. Hopes j have been entertained, that in consequence of the excellent management of the police in this co- lony-and it is but right to say the controul and , discipline of this body, in contradistinction to that of the sister colony, elicited the marked commen- i dation of the Transportation Committee-we might be exempted from the ban which has al- ready gone forth against New South Wales.

ENGLISH NEWS. HOUSE OP Loans, Thursday, Jane 13.- The Canadian Prisoners_Lord Brougham presented a petition from the Canadians, whose case in the Court of Queen's Bench and Exchequer has excited so much interest. They were not guilty, he fcfliil, not accused, nor suspected of having joined in the recent rebellion. it was physically and morally impossible that they should have done so, fur they were in gaol at the time on suspicion of seditious, or if their lordships preferred it, of treasonable suggestions; but under duress «if imprisonment,thty had been told that the governor had, by á new act, ttie power to pardon them on confession ; they were not told that any conditions would uttacli to the pardon, and they, therefore, confessed themselves guilty, and appealed to the governor's mercy. Their prayer wus heard, and they thought themselves paraoned, but instead of that were shipped for England, "imprisoned at Liverpool, brought to London, lodged in Newgate, Jiud appeared under writ...

The Courier. THURSDAY EVENING, NOVEMBER 7, 1839. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 8 November 1839

The Courier   THURSDAY EVENING. NOVEMBER-7,1839. LIBERALITY is a fine thing ; common sense is a better. Liberal measures are not always sus- ceptible of explanation; ¿hey often elude inquiry, i or shrink in defenceless terror before a searching scrutiny. The Education Board-what can «ound or look better? what can in reality be more mischievous trifling? what more futile or unpromising? The inherent defects of the plan of manage- ment are really and truly astonishing; people may use the formula of "ceasing to be astonished at anything" as often as they please; we defy them not to be astonished at the destitution of all controul established by the Board. There is this inherent in the plan; that there is not, neither ever can be, any controul over any thing or body; no controul over man, woman, boy, girl, or money. The Board have, to speak Tas manically, "'chanceoV' everything. One would have thought that they must have got together by a fortuitous concourse, sat in a mist...

SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 8 November 1839

SYDNEY. I Prohibition of Distillation.—This will, of necessity require to be met by compensation ; but even was the present Act allowed to run out, it may be pre- sumed that the distillers would still seek for such on account of buildings and utensils rendered use- less, and for loss of occupation ; and although the amount would, in that case, be less than what will now be expected for loss of anticipated profits in addition, it is deemed advisable to meet the demand at once—the more especially, as it has in some measure been shown by the various documents sub- mitted to your Committee, (and now laid before your honourable Council,) that a much larger sum will be gained by the Revenue in one year, from the prohibi- tion of distillation, than will be required to mako good a fair and reasonable compensation.—Report of the Legislative Council. Cash.—The military chest appears to be nearly empty, for in addition to the £21,000 which was bought a few days ago at a premium of from 3 to 4½...

SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 8 November 1839

SYDNEY. The accounts which we have received from all parts of the colony unite in declaring the promising «tate of the grass, and particularly of the wheat crops. Never, it appears, in the experience of the oldest colonist, has such a prospect of abundance been held out Such being the ease, it becomes an urgent question, whether the ordinary supply of la- bour is adequate to entirely gather in the produce of the soil. We have, trusting to the warning of a great number of persons of experience ia agricultural matters, great reason to express our doubts as to the adequacy of the present extent of labour available for this purpose. We entreat government to turn their attention to this point, in order thai*, if called for, the necessary arrangements may be made tn due time. It has been the almost invariable practice uf tbe Governor to allow the settlers, upon proper appli- cation made, declaratory of their specific wants, the temporary labour of the convicts employed upon the public wor...
