LOCAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 9 October 1840

LOCAL Sin JOHN FRÍNUMN.-Tho rumours of Sir John Franklin's resignation rest on the solid foundation of ; a paragraph in the Colonial Times, copied into the Old England, and so returned " to the place from whence it came." COMMISSARIAT.-We give our new Commissary General great crodt-notwithstanding the 6-ilb. reform bushel ho Ins introduced-for the ability which he has evinced in these hying times, and wo only regret that our holders of grain, in their eager anticipations of a guinea and thirty shillings the bushel for their whett, did not sooner come into the market. The Commissariat now rules the market instead of being rubd by it ; nor can we complain that its sway is one jf tyranny, for it has, up to the present time, libcrslly kept pace with the times. It operates as a check against all combination amongst the millers, and ve hope always to sec it so con- ducted, that instead of being whirled and tossed about by every fresh breeze that brings in a ship from the surrourding colon...

PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 9 October 1840

PORT PHILLIP. WE are in the receipt of Port Phillip papers to the 29th Septemher. They are almost barren of news. We wish that some of our Port Phillip con- temporaries would give the market price of wheat and flour under some regular head. We are unable to quote these important articles from any of their papers just arrived. THE FORTHCOMING LAND SALE.--The activity of our Sydney correspondent has, as usual, placed us a week in advance of the official correspondence with the intelligence of the forthcoming December land sale, and the extraor- dinary plan fallen upon by His Excellency Sir George Gipps to punish the Port Phillippians for their creditable display of public spirit at the August land sale. Sir George has carried into execution his threat of increasing the minimum price of Crown Lands in this province, and in a manner sufficiently indicative of the mind of the inventor. Looking at the list of lands for sale, ticketed and labelled ready for the market, we are forcibly remi...

INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 13 October 1840

INDIA. WE have received Calcutta journals to the 28th of July. Nothing definite has yet transpired about Jhe war in China, and the following extract, which we take from the Calcutta Courier, is the only informa- tion that has even indirectly reached India. " A private letter from Singapore has in it one sentence which we believe will be found eventually to be true-" Communica- tions from various parts of the China coasts convince us that the China Government does not know what weare, or itself is about." Either deceived by the long experience of our uniform sub- mission to their prejudices and ignorances, they anticipate a similar result now ; or else, like all other persons of contracted mind, they have little faith in the existence of anything which they do not cither sec or feel. The Chinese "Government, according to the latest accounts, have not been making any- thing worthy of the name of warlike preparations oven at Can- ton ; which is the only point towards which they seem to...
