The Courier. FRIDAY EVENING, DECEMBER 27,1339. Ecce iterum Crispinus!— [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 27 December 1839
THE COURIER &nbsp; &nbsp; FRIDAY EVENING, DECEMBER 27,1339. &nbsp; Ecce uerum Crisinus ! - BEHOLD Crispin again ! and again must Crispin and Co. be pulled by us over the coals, and undergo the process of another roasting, which we shall conduct with as little tenderness as we conceive due to animals of the kind, being fully satisfied that we shall do the colony some service, if not in ridding it altogether of such vermin, at least in exposing their peculiar character, that the people may beware of these popular prowlers for prey - the literary jackalls who forage for themselves while they affect to have a lion in their wake which after all their howling-the big words and motley apparel of the showman-turns out to be but the stuffed specimen which has so often figured at different times and under different coats-the incarnation of straw, which at the present writ- ing, has assumed the guise and the teeth of Mr. Solicitor-General Jones, the sworn adviser of the...
SYDNEY AND PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 27 December 1839
SYDNEY AND PORT PHILLIP. The Sydney and Port Phillip papers to the 18th of this month have been received, but the former contain no topic of interest beyond the discussion upon the appropriation of the Land Fund, and the salary to be devoted to the Governor of New Zealand. At Melbourne a melancholy accident had occurred, occasioned by the explosion of gun- powder, in the house of Mr. Blanch, formerly gunsmith of this town. Mr. and Mrs. Blanch are both dead, and two men are most severely burnt.

NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 3 January 1840
NEW ZEALAND. By favour of Captain Leslie, of the schooner ' Fal- con,' from New Zealand yesterday, we learn the fol- lowing account of an outbreak of the natives about eight miles from Onpati :-On the 16th October the Notorowkow attacked the Nottyarber tribe at 3, A.M., while asleep in their huts. The alarm being given, the Nottyarber tribe immediately arose and a dreadful con- flict ensued w hich lasted until 9, A. M. About one hundred and fifty of the Notorowkow tribe were killed, and nearly twice that number wounded, while on the other side scarcely one-fourth of that number were hurt. So confi- dent were the Notorowlcows of success, that they even brought ropes to bind their captives, as also accompanied by their women and children, who were to enjoy the feast upon the slain after the contemplated victory. The Not* tyarbcrs were as forbearing after the victory as they proved themselves courageous in the battle. They buried their wounded enemies on the spot with all their accoutr...
CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 3 January 1840
CHINA. ! Accounts have been received from China to the 28th of -7uqpM..Xhe «tata of nÇiirawas as unsatisfactory as they have been since the Imperial CommlsMoner commenced his campaign against the opium; and the obstacles to a reconciliation of interests appear rather to increaso than diminish. Captain Elliot had retired to Macao, at which place the Chinese authorities had placarded him ; and he appears to have issued a proclamation in his own defence, addressed to the Chinese, in which the violence and perfidy which had marked the recent proceedings, were unspar- ingly exposed. An attack from the Chinese appears also to nave been threatened, as the Cambridge had been char- tered to net as a guard ship. Two edicts had been put forth by the Chinese ; the one forbidding any trafile with the ves- sels at Macao, under the usual Chinese penalty of death; the other, ordering the foreign ships either to return to Cinton, or to quit the country in five days. The destruction of the opium bad ...

THE GOVERNMENT SCHEME OP EDUCATION. TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 3 January 1840
¡THE GOVERNMENT SCHEME OP EDUCATION. I TO THE EDITOR OF TUE COURIER. \ SIR, it must surprise all to observe the tenacity with which the advocates of the government-scheme of education arro- gate a tnerit to themselves for their liberality ; their system is essentially exclusive as regards religion, for whatever it may permit out of school-hours, it excludes it altogether from its own provisions. Some who defend tliis scheme, and declare an objection to the more liberal plan proposed by the Archdeacon here, have set up lately a most curious argument in defence of it : in my humble opinion they arestrengthening the cause of the friends of religious education. Tho working, they say, of the plan recommended by the Archdeacon, (vis. tho partition of the government grant among the various sects according to their numbers, i.e., according to their wants,)-.would, in Van Diemen's Land, be attended with this effect ;-the number of the professing members of the Protestant Epis pocal Church wo...
INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 3 January 1840
- --'fin-r'^--- ? --^""--".---------^-"-"?".--? 1 INDIA. We have received India papers to the middle of Septem- ber, and Isle of France papers to the first week in Novem- ber. Amongst their intelligence, nre the details of a most gallant achievement by the Hritish troops, adding another laurel to the glorious wreath which already adorns them. The official dispatch from the victorious General Sir John Keane is in the Calcutta Gazette of the 2!)ih August. We have now only space to state that it announces the capturo of the hitherto supposed impregnable fortress ol' Ghuzni, on the morning of the 23rd July, by storm. The gates were blown in by the Engineers under the command of Major Thompson the storming party under llrigadicr Sale advanced, sup- ported by the main army, led by Sir Willoughby Cotton, but under the immediate command of Sir John Keane himself, and in less than two hours of hand-to-hand con- tested struggle, the British standard waved upon the citadel. The casualties were...
The Courier. FRIDAY EVENING, JANUARY 3, 1840. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 3 January 1840
®i# ftûuvitv* FRIDAY EVENING. JANUARY 3,1840. THE argument «hieb the supporters of the Government plan of education insist upon as one of the strongest proofs for the necessity of de- priving the clergy of all control over the schools, and retting it in the concentrated wisdom of a lay Board, namely, the unimportant subdivisions, which the adoption of the Archdeacon's plan of affording assistance according to the .universal strength of the different sects and persuasions in this colony would create-that ia, in other words, the preponderating influence which it would give 1o the church.of England-proves, like mott of the casuistries brought forward in defence of the newfangled scheme, the weakness of the canse it it intended to uphold. ' We refer our readers to a fetter of our correspondent TÍATOH, who "has ir^tea^ the subject with temper and dis. crimtpgVforj, «wii exposed this amongst other ímhurrablé subterfuges resorted to by?the advo- cate* of i%tt Boattt.in. ordet.to, escape th...

It may be, that his colleagues thought the change a wise one in other respects, seeing that his Lord- ship failed to realise the very sanguine anticipa- tions entertained of his debut as Colonial Secre- tary in the House of Lords. They forgot the nuouialy of hw position, and merely remembered ?his capacity for business, and his power as a de- bater. ...

We see no confirmation of the announcement made by a contemporary journal, of the retire- ment of Lord Howick and Mr. Charles Wood--' the Grey section of the Gäbinet;-from office^ On the contrary, we find, on the authority of the Morning Chronicle, which appears to be the best informed paper on these changes, having announced them several weeks before they were made known, although contradicted with much pertness by the Ministerial journals-that the following are the arrangements : " Should * authority,* however, be in the mood for more contradictions, we will give the opportunity by adding that Mr. Labouchere will succeed Mr. Pou lett Thomson as President of the Board of Trade ; that Mr. Vernon Smith will succeed Mr. Labouchere as Under Secretary for the Colonies ; that Mr. Shiel takes Mr. V.
