' SYDNEY. . I Captain W. Briggs, late both Regiment-This very meri- torious officer, who for a considerable time conducted the duties of the Berrima Stockade so efficiently as to call forth flattering notice on several occasions both from the press and the Legislative Council, has, we understand, retired from the service, nnd already commenced his career as a settler in the colony. Previous to his departure from Sydney, the officers of the 50th regiment, in which he served upwards of twenty years, gave him a farewell dinner, and presented him with a handsome piece of plate in, testimony of the high estimation in which he was held by them as a brother officer and a gentleman.

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 10 January 1840
MISCELLANEOUS. Another Capture of a Slaver_On the morning of the 4th July, H. M. schooner Pickle observed a very suspi- cious looking vessel standing in for the height of Pines, to which she immediately gave chase, firing several guns for the purpose of bringing her to, but to which the stranger paid no attention, continuing to run directly for the land under a heavy press of canvas, and soon after commenced heaving overboard casks and other articles to lighten her. The Pickle gaining fast on her, now fired several shots with grape and cannistcr, which fell thick around her but such was the determined obstinacy of the crew, that it was perceived they lay flat on the deck on every gun being fired, and jumped up immediately after, and ran forward in her bows, in order to bring her on an even keel, to enable her to ground nearer the shore. After a chase of six hours, the vessel, which had hoist- ed Portuguese colours, ran on shore in the height, distant about two cables length, when Li...

REVIEW OF THE SESSION." ?Lord Lyndhurst, in a very able speech, moved for a return of the bills that had been brought from the .lower house, selling forth the dales at which they carne up. He would now proceed to direct attention to the entire proceedings of the session-in order that their lordships might be in a coudition to judge how far her majesty's ministers were entitled to their con h'dence-how far they could be considered as capable of conducting the affairs of the country in a manner suitable to the extent and importance of this mighty empire.
