GOVERNMENT SCHEME OF EDUCATION. TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 10 January 1840
GOVERNMENT SCHEME OF EDUCATION. TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. I SIR, Is it, indeed, a fact that a manifestation has been made of a desire, on the part of the advocates of the religion excluding Government Plan of Education,- to get up peti- tions in favour of its adoption in this Island? Allow me, then, to request that I may be permitted to suggest, through your journal, the propriety,-nay, the necessity, that the large majority of the inhabitants of this Colony, who view with aversion and dread the utter want of principle upon which that system is based, should lose no time in pour- ing in petitions, ulso, to the Legislative Council upon this momentous subject. This is a duty which they owe to themselves an i to posterity, and to the Executive, no less '.'h^;V"tl"Vl""'.--J;;."^"*Ti^!l;'."- îbe-fohUJÎLJjie clcrgv of the Church ot England.

The Courier. FRIDAY EVENING. JANUARY 10, 1840. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 10 January 1840
THE COURIER FRIDAY EVENING, JANUARY 10, 1840. WE insert elsewhere an article from the Glube, which may bo regarded in the light of an official manifesto of the Colonial Office, referring to the discontinuance of transportation to these colonies, and the necessity of infusing what ¡Mr. Ward calls " pure blood," into their constitution, with sundry other conglomerated commentaries on colonisation and centralisation, and a dash of that recent discoverer of the only proper plan of peopling-new countries. Air. Gibbon Wakefield all of which are strung together with the sole view of asserting the right of the Crown to the arbitrary appropriation of the Land Fund. This is the burthen of the song, which is designed to " take our prisoned souls,'* and delude them into an ecstacy of delight, with the prospect of a nova progenies, a new race of free emigrants from the Mother Country, while the position of the Home Government being established, namely, the right to alienate this fund, originally...

The prices obtained may be considered, for middle and low qualities, fully equal to the last month's quotations ; the finer burts were not so well supported by about 5 per ceut. The lumba' wool was not in such great request as in July, owing to it-> staple not being sufficiently long. A new feature in our mnrket was the appearance of a few bales from New Zealand, which proved of excellent desciiplion nnd well gut up ; it realised from Is Od to 2s per lb. ; if we...

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 17 January 1840
SOUTH AUSTRALIA. We have received South Australian papers to the 2lst December. No less than eleven hun- dred more souls have been added to the popu- lation by the arrival of four emigrant ships from England. Our neighbours are somewhat wroth with us for presuming to doubt the flourishing state of the province ; we only hope that the newly arrived cargoes will find the apples all to their taste. The English intelligence received reaches to the 21 st of August. . A public meeting had been held at which cer- tain resolutions were passed expressive of the dissatisfaction created under the present survey system, and the expediency as well as justice of defraying all the expenses of surveys out of the monies received for land sold, and ihc net pro- ceeds applied, without any diminution whatever, to the purposes of emigration. A resolution was also adopted to the effect, that it was expedient to extend the Legislative Council by allowing the people to elect a certain number of representat...
