The Courier. THURSDAY EVENING, JANUARY 23, 1840. THE ANTARCTIC EXPEDITION. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 24 January 1840
The Courier. THURSDAY EVENING, JANUAUY 23, 1840. THE ANTARCTIC EXPEDITION. We incidentally noticed in the last number of &nbsp; the Courier, that the expedition to the South Pole had quitted England, and might shortly be expected to arrive here. Connected with this very interesting and scientific enterprise we have gleaned the following particulars from some of our English periodicals, which we proceed to lay before our readers :—On Tuesday, the 10th September, the Terror, Captain Crozier, quitted the dock-yard at Chatham ; and on the Thurs- day following, the Erebus, Captain James Clark Ross, was appointed to follow her companion, and to proceed on the voyage together. The Erebus and Terror are represented to be literally twin ships, alike in build, colour, masts, rigging, and, in short, in every portion of their external ap- pearance, so much so that it is difficult for an inexperienced eye to detect the one from the other. They are provided with fresh provisions for three...

The Courier. FRIDAY EVENING, JANUARY 24, 1840. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 24 January 1840
inWr Có«rí#rr . FRIDAY EVENING. JANUARY 24,1840.. Br the Soundraporry, arrived yesterday from Canton with a cargo of tea, procured through the Americans, who having subscribed to the conditions imposed by the Chinese had been allowed to trade up to the time of the en- gagement, the following important intelligence has been received. Captain Smith of H.M.S. Volage had removed the blockade from the port and river of Canton, in consequence of the safety of some of the British, who were supposed to have been cut off by the officers of the Chinese Government, having been ascertained. The Commissioner at Macao issued a proclamation denouncing Elliott, and giving directions that he should be looked for and seized. The Chinese appear to have had but a mean opinion of the force of the two ships, and thinking that Captain Smith had yielded to fear, proceeded to attack them on the ground that a Chinese had been killed by one of the British, whom they demanded to be given up. The victory was mo...

PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 31 January 1840
PORT PHILLIP. The continuation of bad weather during the last mouth bas very much retarded the operations both of the farmer and the sheep holder, neither has it been found practicable to reap the standing crops, nor to shear the ready fleece. Some gentlemen we under- stand who commenced at an unusual early period, have succeeded in securing the clip; others having reached the middle of their work, were obliged to desist while the extra bands engaged for the shearing season are still kept on at a great daily outlay. Some few having cleared and packed their wool, were at last unable to transport the produce to town, on account ofthe bad state both of roads and climate. -Port Phillip Gazette, January 8. The Port.-Objections have been raised by visitors to the security of our port, for, at the same lime that they have admired its general facility of access and navigation, its extended anchorage ground, and its available landing places, they have still hesitated to trust the shelter and...

The Courier. FRIDAY EVENING, JANUARY 31, 1840. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 31 January 1840
ffí* CiMtvt«m FRIDAY EVENING, JANUARY 31,1840. WE have received, via Sydney, English intel- ligence to the 29th of September. Mr. Macau ley has been made Secretary at War. The Bank of England has afforded the United States Bank the assistance required, in consequence of the embarrassment occasioned by the refusal of the Bank of France to accept their bills to a large amount. The utmost uncertainty still prevails in the money market ; and although the harvest has been abundant it has suffered much from heavy rains. It has been found impossible to raise loans for state or other speculations in the United States. All is quiet on the side of Canada. From Constantinople advices were received to the 4th of September. Admiral Stopford had had an interview with the Sultan, and promised the Porte all the assistance that the English fleet could render. Mehcmet Ali, in the mean time, remains firm, and several of the Pashas, in the Turkish interest, have revolted to his side. THE Mayflower has ...
INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 31 January 1840
INDIA. From Calcutta we have papers to the 2nd of November. The Atalanta steam-ship was burned down on the 28th October. From the ljorthern frontier we learn that the army of the Indus had reached Cabool, but that Shah Soojah was received without any great demonstration of jay by the inhabitants. The charge of murder- ing twenty prisoners imputed to the Shah, and »lade also against Sir John Keane, rests upon the anonymous letter of a correspondent of one «f the Indian papers. The breach was made in the fort of Ghiznee by a discharge of 300lbs. of powder. The engineers approached the gate inobserved by the guards, who were smoking their pipes in imagined security on the other side. The discharge had nearly proved too much, as the ruins almost filled up the breach. The fort consists of a citadel and three walls, but after the first resistance no second stand was made, and the enemy fled in the utmost con- fusion. It is computed that they must have lost between four or five hundred men...

FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. PORTUGAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 31 January 1840
FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. PORTUGAL. i Slave Trade.-In consequence of the determination of the British Government to enforce the provisions of the treaty with Portugal to put an end to the slave trade, the utmost exasperation has been occasioned against the English in Lisbon, and (he following is a specimen of the brutal bombast in which some of their journals indulge. It might excite laughter were it not that it openly inculcates the virtue of assassination, and all because the Portuguese will not be allowed to traffic in human flesh. f From the Procurador dot Potos.) " What do these English do here ? They traffic for the purpose of sending our gold out of the country without even manifesting it; are they here for us or for themselves ? If England bas no occasion for this vile and miserable nation, then let the Government send them away, or the people will shoot like wolves' those who remain. " Portugal as Portugal stands in no need of Eng- land ; and for this reason, when she was prosp...

Tiie formidable convention of the working classes, the representatives of three millions of armed men, have been turned out of their hall of meet- ing, can find with difficulty a place into which to thrust their heads, become scantier and more scanty every day, and are melting away like a snow-ball before the summer solstice of those terrible revolving suns the judges of assize. Even the sacred month is abandoned as im ^ practicable, and after contracting itself into three M sacred days,' has passed off without further event than a few conflicts between policemen and rioters, and the capture of a number of noisy fellows who will probab...
