CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 6 March 1840
CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. We have received Cape papers to the middle of October. The emigrants of Port Natal have drawn the sword in earnest. They have renounc- ed the right of England to interfere with them, established as they are beyond the border, and they have resolved to drive all invaders away. Our readers may recollect that Air. Ward intro- duced into parliament the subject of colonizing Port Natal under the new self-supporting system, in which the ministry acquiesced. The resistance of the emigrants is the consequence ; nor arc we at ¡ill disposed to think lightly of it, when we re- cur to the victory which these farmers achieved over a host of armed Kafirs, killing and wounding to the number of three thousand. They are de- termined men, and animated with a kind of reli- gious zeal, they will resist to the death. But they talk of destroying all emigrants that arrive to participate in the advantages of their land, although at the same time they admit them to be deluded. After this ...

THIS MORNING'S POST. (From the Launceston Advertiser.) LAUNCESTON CORN MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 6 March 1840
THIS MORNING'S POST. (From the Launceston Advertiser.) IAUNCEST0N COHN MARKET. Grain_The earlier portion of the crops is now fast finding its way into town ; but besides the wheat formerly sold, at from 8s to 9s per bushel, we have heard of no sales to anv extent. The settlers generally seem inclined to hold as long ns possible. The tenders of wheat for the Government, for the year, hnving been accepted, at about lOsper bushel, will probably fix the rate, for the present, at something above that figure. Accounts from Sydney quote wheat nt 10s to Ils, and by our private advices, wc understand that the millers were w.'ll supplied, but that flour was .£.10 per ton, and the two-pound loaf 8d.- Fine flour is worth .t'fiO at Adelaide; the "Government was looking for supplies from Sydney, and (of rice we pre- sume) from India. At present there is no flour to show for exportation in this market: hut, even were it plentiful, shippers in this quarter would, no doubt, pause before they placed ...

LOCAL. HoBAtiT TOWN SOCIETY for the relief of the DISTRESSED.-We were unable to comment upon the account of the receipts and expenditure of this society, which appeared in our last number, but wc should ill perform our duty as chroniclers of passing events did we omit to notice the sub- stantial good effected by a subscription, which, emanating from the' impulse of the moment; serves to characterise the disposition of our fellow-townsmen for prompt benevolence, and reflects so much credit upon them as a community in general. Most of our readers will remember that the subscription originated at the latter end of August last, at a period of great distress amongst the . humbler classes, arising from the very extraordinary high price of wheat, and pro. visions generally. In a few days a sum, but a trifle short of £800, was subscribed, and in the course of four months (the period during which the supplies were issued) not less than 17,000lbs of bread and 8000 lbs of fresh meat, both of t...

Coe Courier* THURSDAY EVENING, MAACH 5, 1840. Ta« following' is the account of the reception given to Captain Hobson by the New Zealand Chiefs on .his arrival at the Bay of Islands. *' His Excellency" and Lieutenant-Governor t» futuro of ali land that may be acquired in that country has reason to congratulate himself on the success of his first essay. His second is the formation of a Caveat Board. It will be well for the New Zealanders if the remedy prove no worse than the disease, and the administration of pretended justice end not like many a Chancery suit, in beggaring both parties. There is a Spanish proverb put into the mouth of a naked man-" I who have gained the cause am in leathers (t. e. naked,) what can have become of him who lost it?'' Captain Hobson and his myrmidons will prove admirable intercessors excellent interpreters of how land may be ac- quired. If land be restored in this way, it will immediately be bought again, the value varying according- to the spirit of com...
SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 6 March 1840
SYDNEY. Convict Marriages.-By the new regulations, mus- ters or mistresses who allow their assigned servants to marry, may still retain them in their service, as the mnrriagc does not authorise either the husband to claim the wife, or the wife to claim the husband ; nor do these regulations warrant the masters of con viel servants in transferring the one party to the other without the Governor's permission ; which in future is only to be granted to those who can prove to His Excellency that they are worthy of the indul- gence. We consider these new regulations extremely salutary as regards convict discipline. Marriage j* not forbidden, but it ran no longer be used as a cloak for bad purposes.-Monitor. The Gas Company.-The arrival of the Transfer has brought out the remainder of the machinery of the Gus Company. The operations in progress must soon have been at a stand still, bud the delay of this vessel been greater, as only a sim!I quantity of piping re- mained on hand to be laid d...
TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 6 March 1840
TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. SIR, &nbsp; The first intimation of the Britomart's loss about Banks' Straits, was derived fiom Captain Gill, of the schooner Sir John Franklin, who was the bearer of a letter to Cap- &nbsp; tain Moriarty, our Port Officer, from a person called Munro, living on Preservation Island; he also brought the register of that vessel, together with some letters and books ; among the latter was the log-book of the Ellen, and a private journal belonging to the master of the ill-fated Britomart. The letter from Munro states that the above few things "were probably washed ashore between the 22d and 26th December." From Captain Gill we leam, that when he observed to Munro, from seeing part of a ship's cabin affording cover to a pig-stye, " that there appeared to have been indications of a wreck," Munro replied, " Yes, he thought some vessel had been wrecked going from Sydney to Port Phillip." Ah ! says Gill, why the Brito- mart is missing; and Munro w...

INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 6 March 1840
INDIA. We have received Calcutta papers lo the 14th of December. The Admiral of the Indian station, Sir F. Maitland, had died on board the Wellesley oif Bombay. Sir Jasper Nicolls had assumed the chief command of the Queen's and Company's forces; but it was not known whether Sir H. Fane was a party to the arrange- ment. If not, much embarrassment would be created, and great difficulty exist, as to whom reports should be addressed by the staff and officers commanding divisions. It was a case of the two kings of Brentford. The Anglo Indian army had reached Cabool, and sufficient garrisons having been left at different places on the line of march, proceeded thence to Jellalabad, moving upon Hindostán through the Khyhur Pass and Peshawur. They had suffered severely from cold. An escort of Seikhs and Com- pany's troops, which had been sent back with supplies to Ally Musjeed, had been fallen upon by the Khyberries in the narrow pass and fled, leaving 500 camels in the hands of the enemy. ...

fiCÏ).* ftûtoVitV* FRIDAY EVENING. MAROU 6, 1840. THERE is now no longer a doubt that a fearful fever rages amongst us. As long as it crept amongst the poor, and brooded over the pallet of straw, it was unheeded, neglected, and despised-treated as a delusion, or a matter of too trilling import to demand the searching inquiry and intervention of authority, with a view to arrest its baneful progress : but now that it ascends like care from the cottage to the mansion, that we find it going forth from its lurking retreats and boldly entering the houses of the wealthy, and infecting the bed of down, universal alarm is spread abroad, and the secret is at length discovered that it has ex- isted in the community for the last three months. For weeks and weeks it has existed within the walls of the prison, and the Colonial Hospital has been filled, with scarce room enough for the beds of the patients. It has broken out in the Penitentiary and the Female House of Corres tion. What will our rea...
