SUPREME COURT—CRIMINAL SIDE. WEDNESDAY, 12TH FEBRUARY. Before His Honor the Chief Justice and a Military Jury. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 21 February 1840
SUPREME COURT-CRIMINAL SIDE. I Wednesday-, 12th Februart. Before His Honor the Chief Justice anda Military Jury. Richard Manning was charged -with the wilful murder of Jessie Ives, on the 22nd May, 1830, by throwing her on the ground, and beating, striking, and kicking her about' the bead, face, and body. The trial excited considerable interest from the length of time which had elapsed since the com. mission of the alleged offence. It may be in the recollection of some of our readers, that the prisoner was taken up for the murder in I83G, and discharged from the bar of the Court by proclamation, in con* sequence of the body of the deceased not having been found. After remaining in Hobart-town for some time, the prisoner returned into the same neighbourhood, and remained there until ho was arrested in August last. It appeared from the evidence, that the prisoner and Jessie Ives, and a man named Saunders ¡md his wife, bud been drinking together at the Woolpack near Macquarie-plains, a...
ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. O'CONNELL'S LETTERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 21 February 1840
ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. o'connell*» letters. Time».-The agitator ranuot forgive the people of England and Scotland for having discerned the cloven foot, which he has taken so much pains lo conceal. He would fain have been a hero to the folk who eau themselves Liberals, on this as well as on the other ?ide of the western Channel ; and, being foiled in his ambition, he betakes himself to his revenge. He devotes half of this letter to the true Catholic and Statesmanlike purpose of stirring up the Irish mobs against the English people at large, and especially against the members of the established church, and «gainst the Wesley ans, whom he slanderously de- signates as *' undignified but unrelenting enemies of civil and religious liberty." To the Irish people at large, the English, so far from entertaining a dislike, have always fostered and exhibited a kindly regaid. The higher orders have been ready to make indulgent allowance for all the national failings induced by the long disadvanta...
SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 21 February 1840
SOUTH AUSTRALIA. Wo have advices from South Australia to the end of January. The Governor lias issued a notice, to the effect that the expenditure of the colony for IÖ30 has so much exceeded the sum authorised by the Colonization Commissioners, that he deems it advisable to appoint a Hoard of Audit, to consist of the Auditor-General and three of the respectable colonists, to be nominated by the Bench of Magistrates, in order to in ves. tigate the accounts. Thus the Government of South Australia puts itself virtually on the coun- try, and the " self-supporting system" becomes a dead letter. The good folks of Adelaide must pay for the gentlemen of the Adelphi and the officials of Adelaide out of some better course of revenue than the special survey department. This proposition of the Governor is a great proof of weakness. Jl/oiv Orerland Arrivals -Last week our old friend Mr. Huon arrived overland from New South Wales on his second trip, with above six hundred head of fine cattle, all...
MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 21 February 1840
MISCELLANEOUS. Pelisses and Princedoms-Rostoptchins being asked by Paul the First, when in company with several Russian princes, why he was not a prince, he re. plied, " because his Tartar ancestors settled in Russia in the winter season." Upon being pressed to ex- plain, be continued, " it was the custom of the Em- perors of Russia, on such occasions, to give the settler the choice of a principality or a pelisse. Now, my ancestor, arriving in a very cold winter, had the wit to choose the pelisse." Paul laughed heartily, and congratulated the princes on their ancestors having settled in the summer season. FocaJPAfnom«ion.~MesisHia, (Sicily,) August 11. We have here a tocal phenomenon which is, perhaps, unprecedented. It is a girl, only l8 years old, gi I ted with a bass voice, which for extent and power rivals that of Lablache f Her name is Clorinda Senganelli.

LOCAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 21 February 1840
LOCAL. Glenorchy. - A fête was given on Monday by Mr. Lowes, on his grounds, at Glenorchy, which not only reflected the highest credit on his liberality and good taste, but did honour to the whole colony, proving, as it did, that amongst our inhabitants there exists the best social feeling, as well as individual munificence. The cricketers who played the last match were invited for the occasion, and ended with a similar result to the last, only that the beaten side were still lower in the scale of notches. Vehicles and steeds of all descriptions might be seen hurrying out of Hobarton to the scene of gaiety, and business was in a &nbsp; great part suspended for the day, which fortunately proved most propitious. There was a very large tent erected close to the house, with a circular ball-room boarded and neatly fitted up at the top. Within the tent were ranged three parallel tables capable of accommodating nearly two hun- dred persons, laid out with great elegance, and contain...

PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 21 February 1840
PORT PHILLIP. We arc happy to note, that as the population of the pro- vince increases, a judicious and self-directed distribution of the inhabitants t» other portions of the territory than the immediate vicinity of Melbourne, seems to be taking place. At William's Town there are now two inns, and a very handsome store in the process of erection. At Gee- long several storekeepers aro flourishing on the gain« of a healthy competition. To Fortland Hay a body of our earliest ond most experienced mechanics have lately re- sorted, trusting to view on its shores the rise and progress of another Melbourne; and at Western l'oint we have no doubt a population fitted to uphold the credit of a sea- port town will shortly he located. To agriculturists whose ideas may be resting on an active and industrious mode of cultivation, it may not prove unimportant to keep in mind, that the splendid land in the direction of und on the Salt-water River, will be sold shortly after the sections now offered,...

THIS MORNING'S POST. (From the Launceston Advertiser.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 21 February 1840
THIS MORNING'S POST. (From the Launceston Advertiser.) &nbsp; By this day's post we learn that the William Wise, from this port, and the Cheviot, from Hobart Town, &nbsp; had arrived at London. The Wool-sales for October went off full 5 per cent, under the last, while Black Oil, in consequence of the reputed failure of the Davis' Straits fishery, ranged from £29 to £30 per ton, at the sale that had then closed. Sperm Oil is quoted at £93. -Bone at £140, and Bark at £12. LAUNCESTON CORN MARKET. The corn market is in a very undecided state; pur- &nbsp; chasers for immediate use buying very sparingly at advanced rates, while the growers keep back from trying to effect large sales, anxiously looking for a rise in price. The rate in Sydney has generally a great influence in regulating this market; and all parties interested are daily looking for advices from thence, as to the ascertained result of'the harvest there; and there is no probability of any large trans- ...
