TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 28 February 1840
TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER &nbsp; SIR, Having just read an article in the last number of the Hobart Town Advertiser, respecting the French &nbsp; corvettes Astrolabe and Zélée, viz.- &nbsp; &nbsp; " It is said these vessels have discovered a large &nbsp; &nbsp; continent to the southward, but we suspect it is the same &nbsp; land seen by Captain Biscoe of the Tula. &nbsp; The writer of this article probably was not &nbsp; &nbsp; aquainted with the position of the land discovered by &nbsp; Captain Biscoe, and named by him Enderby's Land &nbsp; The position of this land is situated about 52 ° longti- &nbsp; tude east, consequently the difference of situation &nbsp; between the two lands is 08 ° longitude east, or 1706 &nbsp; miles. Be so good, Sir, as to correct this evident &nbsp; error in your next number. I am. Sir, your obedient &nbsp; servant, ...

SCRAPS FROM THE STATES. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 28 February 1840
SCRAPS FROM THE STATES. The Sea Serpent was seen again yesterday off fire Island, by a schooner bound in. This is a very sin- gular coincidence. We are told by one who saw the monster, that he is about as long as the British Queen and the Great Western would be, if placed together stem to stern. The monster doubtless intends to try his speed with these two moustrous ships in a race across the Atlantic. It is the only chance he has had worthy his acceptance or powers of competition. And since this is the case we withdraw our bets on the British Queen and back the American Sea Ser* pent, tail and all. Enviable! very!-Al though the thermometer is at 98, we are enabled to feast on ripe peaches, melons, new apples, new potatoes, bright eyes, ice cream, warm hearted, beautiful girls, uud tender mutton.

The Courier. FRIDAY EVENING. FEBRUARY 28, 1840. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 28 February 1840
®íjf ffî$i\Vi$%\ FRIDAY EVENING. Ftaau.uiY 28, 1810. We have received, vid Sydney, English papers to the 9th of No\ ember. Advices from New York to the 19th of October had arrived, but they bring rather unfavourable intelligence of the state of monetary affairs in the south. The United States Philadelphia Bank, or " Mother bank," as it is called, had stopped payment, with several others in the southern districts, but the United States Batik of New York remained firm, and would, as was believed, weather the storm. The bankers of Baltimore had- convened a meet- ing, and come to the resolution, that in conse- quence of the great difficulty of immediately converting the notes which they receive into specie, no eastern or western bank shall be al- lowed to check on any collection for it under the space of thirty days from the date when payment shall have been made. Dreadful fires had broken out in New York, Philadelphia, and Mobile, the damage occasioned by which is estimated at not less...
LOCAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 28 February 1840
LOCAL. 51st Regt.-Military Theatricals.-The little Theatre which has been for some time fitting up in the barracks for the recreation of the soldiers, opened for the first time on Wednesday night, with a melodramatic piece entitled the Two Galley Slaves, followed by a humorous divertissement called the Beehive. The characters in each were well sustained, particularly that of Basil, in the former, and the Landlord, in the latter. There was little need to claim indulgence for a first night's performance, aR it went off with greater ease of manner and per- fection of execution than generally attend such essays. The house is regularly constructed with pit and boxes. The scenery was good and very neatly arranged, and the interludes were telieved by several delightful pieces of music played by the fine band of the 51 st regiment. " The house" was crowded, and the only exception taken against it, as we heard, was it» inadequacy to accommo- date the numbers who thronged the door for ad- mit...

The Courier. THURSDAY EVENING, FEBRUARY 27, 1840. ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 28 February 1840
Coe £otmu\ THURSDAY EVENING, February 27,1840. ENGLISH NEWS. Parliament has been prorogued from the 24th October to the 12th December. An increase is exhibited in the revenue of £1,713,971 over last year. The Pi ince Albert of Saxe Coburg arrived at Windsor Castle on the 10th October. The union of the young prince with Queen Victoria will most probably be announced on the meeting of par- liament. The Duke of Sussex has lately taken to him- self a wife, in the person of Lady Cecilia Under- wood. The Duke and Duchess have been visit- ing the Earl and Countess Durham, at Lambton Castle, where the doings were as merry as mag- nificent. T. B. Macaulay, Esq., was, by command of the Queen, sworn of Her Majesty's most Honourable Privy Council, and took his place at the board. Mr. Macaulay had also the honour to kiss hands on being appointed Secretary at War. The Lord lîishop of Salisbury's two brothers, Henry Denison, Esq., of All Soul's College, Ox- ford, and Alfred Denison, Esq., of Chris...
INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 28 February 1840
INDIA. Major General Torrcnce was about to return to Eng- land with Sir Henry Fane. Colonel Beresford was about to join his regiment, U.M. 3d Bulls, Meerut. The Indian United Service Gazette, of 8th November, Mates, that a new Masonic Lodge, under the title of . Saint Andrew's Union,' has been instituted at Madras. The members are required by the tules of their lodge to »(lhere to temperance principles, when assembled for ma bonic purposes. It was contemplated to solicit the assistance of the go- vernment in the formation of a Hindoo College at Madras. 61st Regiment.-The 61st regiment has at length bid adieu to the shores of Ceylon, and it is but doing them justice to say, that they carry with them the heartfelt wishes of all classes in this colony for their welfare. During the time they resided here, a period of 11 years, the regiment sustained a loss of, we believe, nearly SOO men, and the mortality, which made a threatening ap- pearance among them on their last arrival in Colombo...

PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 28 February 1840
PORT PHILLIP. Port Phillip papers to the 21st instant have been received by the Blossom. The recent land sales had realised no less a sum than £59,000. Flour was scarce, and had been sold at £70 to £75 the ton, but a reasonable arrival of forty-fivo tons by the William Metcalf, forwarded by the Government from Sydney, and which was adver- tised to be sold by auction, had produced some effect on the market, not so much on account of the quantity, as the earnest it afforded of their receiving additional supplies. It is made matter of complaint, that it is advertised to be sold altogether ; but we apprehend it is the intention of the Government to distribute it into small lots. The present extravagant prices have been forced up by a few fortunate holders in grain. The same system prevails here; for it will be found that when a few hundred bushels of wheat are brought into the market, the price which, according to the Review, that chronicle of chaffe is twenty-five or thirty shillings t...
SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 28 February 1840
SYDNEY. Female Convict Discipline.-On Monday last, Captain Brown, while admonishing a female prisoner from the Bench, who had been permitted by the Governor to marry a free man, but whoso subsequent conduct was proof of the impolicy ol'this indulgence, said, lie was happy that the system of convict discipline in this respect, if not already altered, would be so in a very short time ; as instead of im- proving either the character or conduct or condition of those on whom this indulgence had been conferred, it lind buen found, with few exceptions, to be injurious to them, and subveisive of good morals.-Monitor, February 5. Population of the Colony. - At the commencement of the present, year, the population of New South Wales amount- ed to 125,000 persons, of whom one-fifth, or 25.0Ü0 were under twelve years of ago; and of the remainder 35,000 were persons under sentence, leaving a free and freed po- pulation of (¡5,000.

The other two were acquitted. George Britton, George Newbury, Thomas Rooke, George Smith, John Ward, and Abraham Powell, were acquitted upon informations charging them with the capital offence of absconding and having in their possession or using fire- arms, the Attorney-General offering no evidence. Judgment was arrested in the case of James Hines, con- victed at Launceston, of ' designedly' killing a mare instead ofl maliciously.' The Session then closed.
