GOVERNMENT SCHEME OF EDUCATION. TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 6 December 1839
GOVERNMENT SCHEME OF EDUCATION. TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIEZ. I Sin, ! The sphere of that man's observation must lo very circumscribed, and his sense of justice most] indis- tinct, who can state that you ure singular, *r that the Archdeacon of the island is bigoted, in UM oppo- sition which each of you are conscientiously exhibit- ing in the use of all legitimate means ngaiist the introduction, into this island, of the Govcrnmclt Plan of Education. Shame to the temporising politicians of Protestant Englaud, that so monstrous an abortion should be termed the Government Scheme ofEduca lion 1 I am. Sir, but a sojntiruer in this island : I am here to-day, and may be away to-morrow : I have no acquaintance with the venerable character, whose name I am disgusted to see so frequently brotght for- ward, in the debates connected with this question, with an indecent bitterness ; nor have I the honour of being acquainted with any other ecclesastic in the colouy. Yet I cannot but feel, and I la...
The Courier. FRIDAY EVENING, DECEMBER 6, 1339. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 6 December 1839
SEÍftjfc.. ??JÛ4t*?$i0H^ FRIDAY EVENING, DECEMBER C, 1339. THE Government Plan of Education proceeds under the tutelage of the Board of all sects, if not of all saints, who are selected with the view of representing the different religiouä persuasions of which it is their lot to be members, while re- ligion itself is studiously excluded from their deliberations, and the Bible treated like a thistle, which it is dangerous to touch. But the people of this colony, true to their Protestant and parent stal«, look upon it in a different view ; they re- gard it as the fountain of light and truth, and they consider elementary and religious instruc- tion to be co-existent. They want no Board labouring with crude schemes to-day, only to discard them for new ones equally absurd on the morrow ; they wish for instruction to be imparted to their children under the superintendence of their clergy. But in order to deprive these of the respect with which it ought to be the object of every government...
THIS MORNING'S POST. (From the Launceston Advertiser.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 6 December 1839
THIS MORNING'S POST. (From the Launceston Advertiser) It is our painful duty to notice this week the premature death of the eldest son of Mzjor Gray, an amiable youth of 17, who was drowned in the Break-o'-day river on Thursday last. Most sincerely do we condole with the estimable parents in this painful bereavement. The deep- est sympathy will pervade their large circle of acquaintance upon the distressing event becoming known. The estate of Glen Morison, belonging to Mr. G. Allan, of Allanvale, river Tamar, and comprising 4160 acres ol' sheep land, was sold by public auction by Mr. George Eddie, at the Commercial and .Agricultural Exchange, on Tuesday last. It was knocked down to Mr. Murphy, at 28s per acre, which was considered a very capital price. We omitted last week to notice the prices realised for stock, at Cambock, by Mr. Underwood ; as follows Cows, per head, averaged.±'11 2 6 Two-year old steers . 12 2 6 Yearling heifers and sleers. i!

SUPREME COURT. SITTINGS IN BANCO. FRIDAY, 29TH NOVEMBER. Hackett v. Ahcrne. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 6 December 1839
1 SUPREME COURT. SITTINGS IN BANCO. FRIDAY, 29TH NOVEMBER. Hackett v. Ahcrne. The Attorney- General, for Mr. Hackett, showed cause against the rule obtained by the Solicitor-General on Tuesday last.

Exparte Sinclair. The Solicitor-General showed cause against the rule obtained on Tuesday last for a writ of certiorari to bring up the record of conviction in this case. The affidavits of two persons who were in the Police-office at the time the case was beard were read, by which it ap...
HOUSE OF LORDS, MONDAY, JULY 22. RIOTS AT BIRMINGHAM. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 6 December 1839
HOUSE OF LORDS, MONDAY, JULY 22. &nbsp; RIOTS AT BIRMINGHAM. &nbsp; The Duke of Wellington said he had been accused of exaggeration ; it might be a Parliamentary phrase, he would not presume to decide that it was an unpar- liamentary term, but he believed it was a term not much used among gentlemen. It was used, however, in a privileged place, that must be nameless, and be should advert to it no more than to notice the conclu- sions which might be drawn from the use of that term in reference to what he had said. He trusted their lordships would excuse him for troubling them for a few moments upon this subject, because he really thought he had been most unjustifiably made the sub- ject of personal attack for what he had said in their lordships' house in respect to the late riots at Bir- mingham. What he had said was founded on the same amount of information which it appeared was in possession of Her Majesty's Government ; for neither the noble viscount nor any other o...

THE REGATTA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 6 December 1839
THE REGATTA. &nbsp; THE Regatta which had been looked forward to so long and so anxiously as an event of great public interest, which the recollection of the last tended so much to enhance in general estimation, took place on Tuesday last, and though the weather was not the most auspicious, "the sun- &nbsp; shine of the heart was there," and dissipated every thought that was not in accordance with the interest and gaiety of the scene. A more beautiful spot for such an exhibition could not probably have been selected in the whole world being a declivity studded with trees, amongst which the ever memorable wattle was to be seen, sloping to the margin of a mighty river, guarded by high hills and deep forests, the eye stretching for many miles down the Derwent, and forming altogether a picture as lovely as ever painter drew or poet feigned. Tents were thickly scat- tered over the brow of the hill, and the Pavilion was fitted up for the reception of His Excellency, the Li...

To the Editor of Murray's Review. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 13 December 1839
Iii im m mu n -*n-Ti-nrvm To the Editor of Mm ray'a Review. Stn,-When two gentlemen quarrel, it is usual for each to select a friend, by whom it is decided what course is to be pursued by the principal ; aud when a friend prepares a written apology, which is accepted by the other, this, hy established practice, ends the matter, the apology by the friend being considered that of the principal. In such a case, therefore, let me ask, what would be the opinion formed by honour- able men of that principal, who would assert that he never made any written apology, or in other words, " denying that such a paper was ever seen, asked for, much more given 1" Instead, however, of the apology being written and received without consulting the principal, as above supposod, were it to be written by the friend, read over to, and approved hy the principal, previous to its contents being communicated to the other party, what even in that case would be the opinion of such a principal who would " deny t...
