THE COURIER. Strenue et Prospere. HOBART TOWN, TUESDAY, JANUARY 12. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 12 January 1841
THE COURIER. Straus et Prospere. HOBART TOWN, TUESDAY, JANUARY 12. His Excellency the Lieutenant-Governor has &nbsp; returned from his annual inspection of Port Arthur, with the managen,«* of which, under the able super- intendence of Captain Boon,, h_ expressed himself highly gratified. Captain Booth has been most unre- ¡ mitting in his exertions to render Port Arthur effi- ^ cient as a penal settlement, more particularly in the l care which he has bestowed upon the classification and distribution of prisoners. His Excellency, we understand, has selected a por- i tion of land in the same quarter, consisting of between two and three thousand acres, which is to be put into ¡ cultivation by parties of prisoners shortly expected to arrive. It is in a great part bounded by the sea, and on the land side is cut off by a creek ; the land itself is represented to be of a most fertile character. His Excellency found the Favourite, sloop of war, Captain Dunlop, at Port Arthur. From th...
THE CLOSE OF THE SEASON. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 12 January 1841
THE CLOSE OF THE SEASON. The first of August is over-the first of September is coming-Parliament is about to shut up-Gurncy's Bude light is looking out for a holiday-the waiters in the club houses arc beginning to take the liberty of putting their hands under the skirts of their coats, uurf standing an the steps as leisurely as so many lords-the German singers are gone up the Rhine, saluting the students at Bonn with a national chorus, and steaming onwards io entrance the worthy burgesses of Mayence-the French plays are nearly played out-the Italian opera announces its hist night the low-browed hovels on the edge of the moors give sounds of revelry and confusion-oysters are coming in -and balls, concerts, and dinners are going out. The mighty throb of the London season is fast subsiding, and by and by this wilderness of a town will be as silent as a dried fountain. People who live entirely in the country, and whose sea- sons nre regulated solely by the hands of Nature, have no notio...
SPIRIT OF THE ENGLISH JOURNALS. THE QUARREL BETWEEN FRANCE AND ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 12 January 1841
ÏPIRIT OF THE ENGLISH JOURNALS. THI QUARRBL BETWEEN FRANCE AND ENGLAND. MORNING CHRONICLE.-The Moniteur launches its official announcement that the reserve of the con- ception of 1836 is called into activity, as also he entire conscription of 1839. This, with the recal the soldiers en congé, will make an increase of about 30.000 men. Thanks to Algiers, the conscription 1837 and 1838 has been swallowed up there. In ddition, it officially corroborates the previous an juncement of the Débats, that power had been given assumed by a royal ordonnance, signed on the )th, to raise funds for adding 10,000 seamen to the french navy, with five sail of the line, thirteen fri ates, and nine steam boats. There can be no doubt bat this force, in addition to that already possessed ' the French in the Mediterranean, and in conjunc on with the Turkish and Egyptian vessels, forms a try menacing fleet. The support of Egypt by France ?s been all along given with this view, of rivalling and competing wit...
PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 12 January 1841
PORT PHILLIP. The recent debates in the Legislative Council of New South Wales, relative to the division of the terri- tory into separate governments, have occasioned some sensation at Port Phillip, and already measures are in progress for getting up a counter petition to that pre- sented by the Bishop in Council, and signed, ex oficio, by the Governor himself. The Port Phillippians have certainly some reason on their side, and build their hopes on the very fears of the Sydney people. The latter dread the falling off which such a separation must occasion to their immigration fund; the Port Phillippians, on the other hand, rejoice that hence- forth their own enormous land revenue will be free for procuring emigrants ; cor will the Sydney people be any longer at liberty to apportion to themselves the " lion's share.0 An expression of the Bishop, that " the surplus of New South Wales has been the subsistence of Port Phillip and South Australia," han caused «one offene« .and not without...

CORONER'S INQUEST. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 12 January 1841
CORONER'S INQUEST. Proceedings of an Inquest held at the Carlton, on view of the body of Thomas Gully, on 5th January. John Dougherty sworn-I am living in the employ of Bernard Quintin, at the Carlton ; about dusk, in the evening of Christmas Day last, I saw Henry Loane the prisoner, who lives in a hut adjoining Quintin's premises, ill-using his wife; the deceased, Thomas Gully, and two other lads, named John Quintin and Frank Vallady, were with me at the time ; we were just outside Loane's hut; Thomas Gully called out to Henry Loane not to ill-use his wife in that manner ; Mrs. Loane then left the hut and went towards Quintin's house, from one to two hundred yards from Loane's hut; Henry Loane (the prisoner) followed his wife; Thomas Gully (deceased) went near to Loane, who turned round, and with a stick like the one now produced, he struck Thomas Gully ; the blow appeared to fall upon his head ; Thomas Gully immediately fell ; Bernard Quintin desired the two lads, Vallady and Quin...
TREATISE ON SHEEP &c. CHAP. VII.-SKIN WOOL. (Continuedfrom our last) [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 15 January 1841
TREATISE ON SHEEP &c. CHAP. VII.-SKIN WOOL. (Continuedfrom our last ) Before I close this part of my subject, it may not be amiss to suggest that the watering places in the 6heep»runs ought to be paved, or gravelled, so as to render it impossible for the sheep to stir up the water with their feet and make it muddy. Naturally-they are extremely clean, invariably refraining from drink- ing when the fluid is mixed with impurities, and this precaution is the more necessary in a country where lagoon or pond water is chiefly used. In some parts of England, where the ground is soft and miry, the sheep-ponds are bedded with chalk; but, even with us, this nicety has not received all the attention which it deserves. It may be'proper to add, that I have often felt sur- prised on observing that the productive vegetable, known by the name of Lucern, is not more generally cultivated near the homestead of the English farmer. It is a prolific and nutritious plant, well calculated for the fo...
THE FUNDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 15 January 1841
THE FUNDS. The Money Market appeared to be recovering in the early part of the week, but as soon as the Account had been arranged and prices were allowed by the speculators to take their natural level, Consols dropped to 89} for Money on Friday, being 1¿ per ceut. below the opening price on Wednesday morning. The Exchanges are going back apace, and the merchants are-beginning to look anx- iously to this matter. The paralysed state of trade in the United States is oue reason for this state of things. Ano- ther is the facility to speculate in Tallow given by our | bankings}stem, which leads to our paying to Russia at | least 10s. per cwt. more for the article than would be re. quired in the absence of such banking facilities. Another | cause is the exteusive importation of Foreign Grain. The Gazette of Friday evening gives the Customs' Return of | quarters of grain imported in the month of July, which we shall connect with two preceding returns : G»« IN IxrORTED INTO THE UNITED KlNOOO...
COLONIAL PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 15 January 1841
COLONIAL PRESS. INSOLVENTS.-A great mistake seems to have prevailed in regard to what is called the discharge of " Insolvents." Certain of these persons do. not hesitate to display the possession of property to a considerable amount, believing (it is supposed) that the " discharge1' enablesthenîtôhoîd it. Tbey are mistaken. Any creditor has the power to cause the warrant of attorney given by every insolvent upon receiving the " discharge," to be put in force, and the property levied upon, as in ordinary cases. An in- stance of this will be shortly exhibited.-Murray's Re- view, Jan. 12. Tue INSOLVENT COMMISSIONER.-The public voice is en- tirely in favour of the appointment of Mr. Sorell to this very important office. His twenty years'residence amongst' , us, during whick he has filled, with so much general satis- faction, his important office, (by Act of Parliament the only Patent Office in this Colony.) enables kim to possess such accurate knowledge of all-his assiduity and atten- t...
