PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 17 January 1840
PORT PHILLIP. We have received Port Phillip papers to the 7th of this month. A new paper entitled the Port Phillip Herald has been started this year. It bids fair to distance its two competitors. The following are extracts :- &nbsp; The Suburban allotment 24, was disposed of on 31st December. And the half-acre lots realised from £175 to £63 Steam. - The inhabitants of Melbourne will be glad to learn that a large steamer named the Madagascar, has been sent for to the Isle of France by Mr. Man- ning of Sydney ; she is intended to ply between that port and Melbourne. A large Steam Tug, of thirty- five horse power has also been ordered by a leading mercantile house at Sydney, for the purpose of plying &nbsp; between William's Town and Melbourne. The former of these vessels may be expected here within the next three and the latter within six mouths from the present time.

THIS MORNING'S POST. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; (From the Launceston Advertiser.) The Rev. Mr. Gibbon is the clergyman appointed to the mastership of the church of England school, some time since subscribed for in Launceston, and to which it &nbsp; may be remembered Bishop Broughton presented a hand- some donation from funds raised in England for the aid &nbsp; of such objects in the colonies. It is reported that the chaplaincy of the new church at Launceston is also con- ferred on this gentleman. By order of Major Wentworth, Police Magistrate, all convicts, ticket-of-leave, or otherwise, are forbidden to appear at the races and regattta. A sad accident occurred to the barque Lady Emma on the evening of Friday last. The vessel was lying at single anchor, preparatory to her being taken over the bar; in swinging to the tide she tailed on the east bank of the river in Home Reach, and hung fast. The anchor was then hove upon, but came home ; and shortly...

The ladies, the Queen of Beauly and her attendants, were brought to their seats in the galleries io close carriages, and by that means escaped a por- tion of the soaking to which the rest of the company were subjected. The trumpets sounded gallantly as the procession entered the harrier, and those who could exalt their voices, and were not afraid to open their mouths for the rain, shouted amain. The knights nttctnptcd to return the compliment by bow- ing to their admirers, but it was only an attempt : they eat so stiffly in their iron panoplies, that bowing without rolling out of their s...

It is generally presumed that all despatches are satisfactory; nay more, ' highly satisfactory' &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; is the admitted phrase, and we will assume, therefore, as a matter course, that those which have just arrived by the Canton are of the same &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; __________________________________________________ genus; but amidst all the sweets of flattening foolscap with which the government of His Ex- cellency Sir John Franklin has been greeted by the Secretary of State, we find no mention what- ever of the Prohibition of Distillation Bill ; it is passed over in mute and inglorious silence to the increased dismay and const...

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 24 January 1840
«??^?iaaBaaaaaaiiBMBa SOUTH AUSTRALIA. On going to press we received a South Aus- tralian paper of the 11 tit of January. A dinner had been given to the Governor at which upwards râefra4ff*a.^^^^^ Stephens spoke to the p "ii-es and prosperity of the colony, and wished that the editor of the Times had an opportunity of witnessing that banquet, in order that he might for ever after hold his peace. Wc have been taken to task for calling South Australia a land of special surveys and special humbugs. We certainly agree with Mr. Stephens that we ought not to be mu particular, nor look the gift horse .in the ino.uh with an eye of too much scepticism. Our friends and our neighbours sometimes-sny hard things about us ; now our brother in Van Diemen's Land -at least one of them says, ours is a land of special sur- veys and special humbugs. Nor shall I say anything about the special surveys, except that our friend would no doubt take it as an especial favour if anybody would let him have a spe...

The Druid's orders are, 'we have been informed, to pro- ceed direct to China, and the Herald will take Captain Hobson to New Zealnnd, while his family will remain some time in Sydney, until be has been enabled to pre- pare for their reception in New Zealand. In the English news there is little of interest to the colonies.-Colonist, December 25. In order to provide against the recurrence of such risks as the mercantile community of Sydney were lately ex- posed to, by the actual disappearance of one, and the con- templated disappearance of another, of the principal auc- tioneers in the colony, it has been resolved to establish a joint-stock company, to be called ' the Australian Auction Company,' with a capital of £100,000 in five thousand shares of £20 each.
