MR. ROBERT BOLTON, THE "GENTLEMAN CONNECTED WITH THE PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 1 December 1840

MR. ROBERT BOLTON, THR " GENTLEMAN CONNECTED WITH THE PRISS. In the parlour of the Green Dragon, a public-house ] in the immediate neighbourhood of Westminster Bridge, everybody talks politics, every evening ; the great po- litical authority being Mr. Robert Bolton, an indi- vidual who defines himself as " a gentleman connected with the press," which is a definition of peculiar iu definiteuc3s. Mr. Robert Bolton's regular circle of | admirers and listeners, are, an undertaker, a green- grocer, a hair-dresser, a baker, a large stomach sui- I mounted by a man's head, and placed on the top of two particularly short legs, and a thin man in black, name, profession, and pursuit unknown, who always sits in the same position, always displays the same | long, vacant face, and never opens his lips, surrounded as he is by most enthusiastic conversation, except to puff forth a volume of tobacco smoke, or give vent to a very snappy, loud, and shrill hem ! The conver- sation sometimes turns upon ...

COLONIAL PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 1 December 1840

COLONIAL PRESS. SUSPECTED MURDER.-A man named Edward Allan, nn assigned servant of Mr. Griffiths', at Fresh Water Point, has been apprehended on suspicion of having wil- fully murdered a shepherd in the employ of Mr. Atkin, son. The man's'.name-is Samuel Brewell, who became free a short time since? and went kangarooing with the prisoner on the 6th' November, since which time he has been neither seen nor heard of. Allan states that he left him in the bush, and returned home by himself. The missing man had wilh him two dogs, which have not been found, by which the suspicion that he has met with his death in a foul way is increased, as the dogs would un- doubtedly have returned home, being wellacquainted with theueighbourhood. The assumption is, that they have been killed wilh their master. A spade, stained with several marks of blood, has been found in a hut occupied by the prisoner, which at present forms the principal ground of -suspicion. Every search has been made for Brewell, but...

THE COURIER. Strenue et Prospere. HOBART TOWN, TUESDAY, DECEMBER 1. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 1 December 1840

THE COURIER. Sturme et Çrogpere. HOBART TOWN, TUESDAY, DECEMBER 1. THIS being the day on which our annual Jubilee of the Regatta is to be celebrated, we hail its advent as the harbinger of good things, and the messenger of joy and gladness to all sorts and conditions of men. There is a truce to politics-all songs and speculations are mute " on the distant prospect" of the New Norfolk College, und the only thought is of those Who foremost now delight to cleave With pliant arm the glassy wave, while the hovering throng of cares and passions are dispersed, like the fogs of New Norfolk, by the sun- shine of the heart. It is greatly in favour of our j community, that however individually litigious it may be, yet that upon occasions of gaiety our unanimity ¡8 wonderful. To be sure these occasions are rather like angels' visits, and serve us links of remembrance ' between this and the old world.

THE CABINET. England I with all thy faults I love thee still, My country I and while yet a nook is left. Where English minds and manners may be found. Shall he constrained to love thee. Though thy dime Be fickle, and thy year most part deformed With dripping rains, or withered by a frost, I would not yet exchange thy sullen skies.

FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. BRITISH NORTH AMCRICA. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 4 December 1840

FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. BRITISH NORTH AMCRICA. Lower Canada.-We have Montreal papers to the 30th June. There had been few events of political importance ; though Governor Thomson (who had recovered from the gout) appears not to have been idle ; he had kept the Special Council hard at work, and had often presided at their sittings. The Council was adjourned on the 20th ; and the Governor was to depart for Quebec on the 29th, on his way, it is said, to Halifax, whence he will afterwards proceed on a tour through part of the country districts of Lower Canada, and through a great extent of the Upper Province. Among other measures, the Council had passed one for the reform of the judicatures. Mr. Nelson, the opponent of the Union Bill, and of almost every measure proposed in and sanctioned by the Special Council, has resigned his seat in that body. Immigration increases : 13,700 settlers had arrived, but " great numbers" went to the United States. There is, however, a prospect of better em...

Bourke'« despatch of the 20th January, 1836, that " the demand for Police Magistrates and a larger constabulary bas arisen, not merely from the desire of protection by the lair against fraud and violence, but from the anxiety of the settlers of New South Wales to turn to the best ac- count, and obtain in the largest proportion, the labour of the convicts assigned to their service.

ABRIEF ACCOUNT OF MACAO, THE ONLY EUROPEAN SETTLEMENT IN CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 4 December 1840

ABRIEF ACCOUNT of MACAO, the ONLY EUROPEAN SETTLEMENT IN CHINA. Macao, a town on an island of the same name at the entrance of the river of Canton, is the only set- tlement which Europeans possess within the domi- nions of the emperor of China. It was founded by the Portuguese, and still continues in their hands ; but since other nations have participated in the commerce of the Indies, Macao has fallen somewhat j into decay. In 1725 the Chinese restricted the ship- ping- to twenty-five vessels, and it has since fallen to about one-half this number. For nearly a century the Portuguese monopolized the trade of the East. De Gama, the discoverer of the passage by the Cape of Good Hope, landed on the coast of Malabar in 1498 : in 1511 the Portuguese had begun to explore the Indian Archipelago; in 15*25 they made them- selves masters of Malacca, and soon afterwards achieved the conquest of the Moluccas. Their first attempt to open a trade with the Chinese was not I successful ; but with a...
