CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 12 July 1839

CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. We have received Cape papers to the latter end of March. A bill which had been introduced into the Legislative Council, extending the juris- diction of magistrates to a most alarming extent, and empowering them to sentence to two years imprisonment for certain offences, and to adjudi- cate in many civil cases hitherto subject to the arbitration of a jury, was withdrawn, after having encountered the most strenuous opposition. Mr. Cloeto made a very excellent speech upon the oc- casion. It appears, that apprehensive of abuse likely to be committed under the extensive provi- sions of this bill, a power of revision was vested in the Attorney-General. Upon this subject Mr. Cloete makes some very appropriate remarks. We insert part of his speech as a favourable speci- men of the powers of debate which are occasion-» ally called forth in the Legislative Council of the Cape. The most surprising circumstance is, that the press of that colony seems to deplore the loss of th...

SYDNEY EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 12 July 1839

SYDNEY EXTRACTS. j China and Batavia.-The following information has been handed to us fur publication by a merchant of this town : Batavia, Zath April, 1839. The news from China is really appalling, and all about opium. It appears the Chinese are determined to put a stop to this branch of trade ; Canton is in a complete uproar. The Dutch Consul has sent for a vessel of war from this, to enable him and his family to escape from Alncao. The houses of Jardine, Alatheson and Co., Dent and Co., and several others, are ordered away, but I suppose they won't go ; you will see hy the papers which I have given Captain ? M'Cutcheon the account of the extremities to which j they have gone. This will be a severo blow to the trade for some time, ami much misery is expected. Alluding to Batavia.-Perhaps you may see a pro- hibition laid on the Sydney vessels calling here for freight, out of a retaliation for your not allowing our flag to visit jour port. The Dutch are formidable characters, and yo...

INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 12 July 1839

INDIA. ludia news to the 9th of March had been received from Calcutta. The last intelligence from Scinde, through which territory the army of the Indus was on its march, was highly favourable ; and instead of having to attack Hyderabad, as was expected would be necessary to reduce the Ameer to compliance with the overtures of the government, he had yielded a passage to the troops, agreed to grant the fiee naviga- tion of the Indus, to pay down twenty-seven lacs of rupees, towards the expenses of Shah Soojah's con- tingent, and to receive a subsidy of five thousand British troops. The only act of hostility attending the progress of the army through these territories, was at Kurachea, the principal sea-port of Scinde, near one of the mouths of the Indus, which was battered down by the Wellesley. Nothing further was said of the rumoured coalition of the north-western counties ngainst the British. There still, however, continued reports of combinations against the East, fostered by the ...

8Cft* entwirr* FRIDAY EVENING, JULY 12, 1339. THE sittings of the Legislative Council have boen suspended until the 22d, to allow of breath- ing time to the exhausted powers of debate which were beginning to fall short of the eager elo- quence that distinguished the first essays of its members. The country orators have taken wing-, and left the ill-lighted and ill-paved streets of Hobart Town to darkness and to us. But will they not return ? We think if ever there was an occasion more than another demanding their at- tendance for the protection of the interests of a body about to be sacrificed at the altar of Moloch -to a sordid and pitiful economy, degrad- ing1 as it is degraded, blaBting its votaries with an unwholesome mildew, as well as sweep- ing away every vestige of right, and every land- mark of that justice we have been taught to re- vere and look up to as our birthright, guaranteed to us by the laws of England-this is the time when they are called upon to exhibit a firm de...

COMMUNICATION WITH INDIA. (From the Times.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 12 July 1839

COMMUNICATION WITH INDIA. (From the Times.     We think it of great importance at this moment to col- lect and place before the public all information which may elucidate the facilities, and the comfort, as well as the ex- pedition of the route to India through Egypt, because we find that there is much prejudice and deception to contend with, and that very few even of the best-informed are fully aware of the true state of the case. We gladly avail ourselves, therefore, of an authentic letter on the subject, which was received by the overland mail, and which is dated on the 2d December ; but the mail itself from Bombay, having left on the 5th, has reached London in the short period of forty-sevcn days. " Bombay, December 2.-I take up the pen to perform my promise of writing to tell you regarding the overland route, but it must be in general terms. In the first place, no man in his senses would ever go any other, after having once gone this way. The voyage up...

The Courier. WEDNESDAY EVENING, JULY 10, 1839. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 12 July 1839

?\)t Co truer,. WEDNESDAY EVENING, JULY'IO, 1839. WE mentioned some time since, that a society was established for the purposes of extending the objects of the Regatta, and that His Excellency, the Lieutenant-Governor, had consented to be- come Patron, and had subscribed the munificent sum of one hundred guineas, with the view of promoting and encouraging by his example, a project which promises to be of so much real benefit to the people of this colony. We are this week enabled to lay before our readers the nature of tho prizes proposed, independently of those of last year, from which they will at once see the great practical utility likely to result from such a society, provided it meet with ade- quate support from the colonists:, who are chiefly interested in its advancement. If it be asked in the utilitarian spirit of distrust which is abroad " cut bono"-to what practical good do all these projects tend? our answer is, that even as- suming no great practical benefit to result fr...

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 12 July 1839

MISCELLANEOUS. TRAGIC EVENT-Bath, January 20.-The city of Bath was yesterday and this day thrown into a state of consternation, by a tragedy fortunately not often heard of in England. Early yesterday morning news spread through the city that Mrs. Tugwell, wife to the senior partner of the Bath bank, had poisoned her children, and committed suicide. The utmost excitment prevailed, as the unfortunate lady was universally looked up to as the friend of the poor and patron of the distressed. The deceased, Mrs. Tugwell, about twelvemonths' since, at her confine- ment, suffered from an attack of milk fever, and, as we understand, had never since been perfectly sane. On Thursday last she came from her residence, No. I, Whitcombe-crescent, with her husband and children, into Bath, where, after proceeding to make pur- chases at various shops, she was seen walking on the banks of the canal, accompanied by her children, as late as 3 o'clock in the afternoon : she then, it appears, returned home...

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 19 July 1839

MISCELLANEOUS. Alleged Claims to Immense J?»rafe*.-The sensation created by the recent proceedings against Mr. W. A. Campbell, of Wütonplace, who was charged with stealing a map and procuring numerous deeds, purloined from the offices of attorneys, to be copied for the purpose of prosecuting, as alleged, imaginary claims on the estates of a great many gentlemen, has induced us to make some further inquiries into the strange matter. It appears that a person of the name of Cook claims, we do not pretend to say whether truly, or falsely, to be the , heir of a Mr. Henry Cook, of Mile-erid, who died about the year 1770, possessed, as asserted, of estates and pro- perty producing a rental of £300,000 yearly. The claims of Cook were taken up by a picture dealer, named Woodburn, who placed the matter in the hands of a respectable solicitor, named Rankin, which gentleman, on investigating the grounds of the claim, became satisfied that they were not tenable. Mr. Campbell became acquainted wi...
