Tüte People's Journal is last week divided i ato different compartments, not altogether the same in style, but yet bearing an analogous re- semblance one to another. -- Species non omnibus una Nee diversa tarnen qualem decet esse sororttm. There is no letter from Mr. Young to the Colo- nial Secretary, nor from the Colonial Secretary to Mr. Young, but " the eminent hand'' is still discernible in the scattering of " doubtful words" and grave insinuations amongst the community, which it will be our duty as well as our pleasure to resolve, in order to expose the disingenuous ness and studied unfairness which characterise statements professing to result from the purest patriotism that ever animated the soul of an attorney. And first, we will take the case of the Solicitor General-for after the publication of the private memorandum handed to the friend of Mr. Ross, we need no extraordinary intuitive...

The Courier. FRIDAY EVENING, NOVEMBER 29, 1339. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 29 November 1839

I sfie Catttrt*t% FRIDAY EVENING, NOVEMBER 29, 1330. THE Quarterly " Budget" lias made its ap- pearance, and exhibits a strong proof of the in- creasing prosperity of this colony. Our Chancellor of the Exchequer has rnade a goodly show of figures, giving an increase upon the correspond- ing quarter of last year of no less a sum than £11,811. The Expenditure, however, exceeds the quarter of last year by £13,029, which is accounted for, first, by the repayment of the loan from the military chest of no less a sum than £10,274, calculated with interest, but at what rate is not specified, although it must of course be understood as the common rate of in- terest at home, not exceeding four, or three and a-half per cent. This is all that can with right or reason be charged. 2nd, By compensation-rather an ugly word to Mr. Hackett and Mr. Smith, the two recti I fiers who were fortunate enough to escape the 4th resolution at the eleventh hour, when the I game teas made. It is not stated at wh...

PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 29 November 1839

PORT PHILLIP. The difficulty of obtaining land here has in most instances pressed uufuiily upon the settlers, by ex- cluding Hiern from the chance of put charing ground ; an object which is generally of the gtealest import- ance with newly arrived settlers. It has, however, proved of considerable benefit to the district, inso- much as in the present scarcity it has compelled the settlers to cultivate at their several stations. Thus, the wool growers have also become agriculturists ; this has given them a fresh lien upon the gratitude of all other classes of the community, and is another reason why something should be done by Govern- ment to reward their exertions. Mr. Conolly, of Van Dicmeu's Land, accompanied by some other gentlemen, came over lately from Port Fuiry ; they described their journey for the first three days us having been rendered diflicult by scrub, but afterwards pleasant and easy. On Saturday last, the Oth instant, in the presence of a highly respectable assembly, ...

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 29 November 1839

MISCELLANEOUS. Extraordinary Cow and Calf.-Though Mr. Starr, of the More, near Bishop's Castle, has retired from the fanning business, he still retains his usual pre deliction for having a few of the " right lort," viz., the old smoky-faced Montgomeryshire, crossed with Hereford, not Durham, as reported in some of the papers ; and from a cow of this description, Mr. Starr, about a fortnight ago, had a calf of the foi. lowing extraordinary dimensions :-Height* at the shoulders, 3ft. 3 in. ; length from the end of the tail to the nose horizontally, 0 ft.4 in.; and its weight l3Glbs. After the calf had sucked, and a bowl dishfull of boasting had been given to the cow, she rewarded her master with a large stable bucket-full of the same nutritious beverage ; and at this period, a fortnight after calving, the cow gives twelve quarts per day after suckling the calf. This surprising cow was bred by Mr. Richards,of Dolarddyn, near Welsh- pool ; and the sire of the calf is from the celebrated...

ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 29 November 1839

ENGLISH NEWS. Sir John Conroy has been dismissed from the house- hold of the Duchess of Kent under peculiar circumstances. The Queen appears to have insisted on it, and a coolness had arisen in consequence between Her Majesty and her royal mother. The Duke of Wellington was called in to negotiate, and recommended that Sir John Conroy should retire ; at the same time, the noble Duke acquitted him altogether of the imputations laid to his charge. These, as it would appear, have some reference to the rumours relating to Lady Flora Hastings. The Times seems anx- ious to revive the old scandal, and attributes all the in- famous attacks upon the Queen which have disgraced the Morning Post, to the same source. The writers who waste their fire upon the Court physi- cian must know that to the unhappy feud between the Queen and her mother is attributed the circulation of the slander, for which a voyage in the same steam-boat from Scotland with Sir John Conroy afforded the groundwork and prete...

The Courier. THURSDAY EVENING, DECEMBER 5, 1839. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 6 December 1839

Cfoe Cour fer» THURSDAY EVENING, DKCEMBEU 5,1839. WE had öBr^ärjjl last week to advert to the false tenderness'for~'crime and criminal which is afloat in England, and to notice the reverend raptures of the ordinary of Newgate in preach- ing the condemned sermon previously to the morning of the execution of a murderer, to whom he promised that, being penitent, he would be " welcomed to the heavenly abode by 10,000 angels," and "become a trophy of sovereign peace." We now subjoin an excellent article on the uncertainty of punishment, which we extract from the Examiner of the 14th of July. It is well written, and contains some very just remarks on the interpretation of premeditated crime. " In the account of the last hours of Willis, the ?artilleryman, who was executed for the murder of Serjeant-Major Shepherd, it appears that he was firmly convinced that the punishment of death would not be carried into effect, and that the Royal mercy would be extended to him. It is probable that the...

CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 6 December 1839

CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. WE have received Cape papers to the end of September. Port Natal is now becoming a place of great resort, and some of the earlier settlers are likely to anticipate Mr. Saxe Bannister and the colonists about to proceed from England. By a list of prices enumerated in the Grahams 2 oten Journal, we find that the Cope wool is improving in estimation at home, the prices averag- ing from one and threepence to two shillings. It was rumoured that the Governor was about to retire at his own request, and that he was to be succeeded by Sir Ewen M'Gregor, as we had previously announ'ced. From private intelligence recently received from London, it appears that Mr. Save Bannister is pro- ceeding with his scheme of emigration to Port Natal. It ii »aid that set eral individuals possessing properly Dud influence ha\e been induced to join him, and that land has actually been sold. If this be correct, w&roay expect soon to hear of a vessel or \ essels beitig chartered for th...

It is reported that Mr. Windeyer has been offered the appointment of First Police Magistrate of Sydney, vacant by the suspension of Colonel Wilson. We cannot vouch for its accuracy-Australian, Nov. 9.     Mr. Surgeon Dobie has retired from the appoint- ment of Health Officer, which he has held for the last twelve months, intending to turn his attention to agricultural and pastoral pursuits. Upon his retire- ment a dinner was given to him by his friends at the Club-house, at which Captain King, M.C. presided. The Governor has appointed Mr. Dobie, a Magistrate of the territory. Mr. Dobie has made three voyages to this colony; two as Surgeon of convict ships and one in charge of the immigrant ship Duncan, which arrived in ...

Letters from Bagdad announce an overflow of the Tigris which had laid the whole city neatly under water. It was stated that already more than 1000 houses had been destroyed, and that the whole popu- lation, without reference to ago, rank, or sex, were employed in attempting to check the ravages of this inundation. From a parliamentary paper it appears that the railway companies in existence under act of Parlia- ment, up to the uti) of April, 1839, are authorised to have a capital in ¿pint-slock of ¿£11,010,814, uud to raise by loan £16,177,030.
