LOCAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 13 March 1840

LOCAL. His Excellency, the Lieutenant-Governor, reached Launceston at four o'clock on the after- noon of Tuesday, the 10th instant. The embarkation of the last detachment of the 21st Royal Scots Fusiliers took place on Thurs- day last, at seven o'clock. The men, 124 in number, marched from their barracks in excel- lent health and spirits,, accompanied by the band of the 51st, playing the well-known airs of the British Grenadiers," and " Patrick's Day."   Sorne of the veterans were much affected. The scene, as they marched down the declivity from the barracks, brought forcibly to mind the words o,f the favourite song-" The Soldiers Tear." " He turn'd and left the spot ; ah, do not deem him weak, For dauntless was the soldier's heart, though tears were on his cheek ; Go, watch the foremost ranks, in danger's dark career, Be sure the hand most daring there has wiped away a tear." Twenty-six women and fifty-seven children accompany this last draft of the regiment. The offic...

INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 13 March 1840

INDIA. We are happy to subjoin the following ex- planation of the massacre at Ghizni. It i s an extract from the letter of nn intelligent officer at Caubtil, dated 19th October. The massacre at Ghinni is a'complelc fabrication, for it was impossible for troops to behave with gi cater forbearance or for prisoners to have been better treated ; instead of 3500 men, there vero about 700 killed; the women were put into comfoifable quarters, with a guard to protect them, and the men taken prisoners (in number nearly 2000) were all, except a few, relieved the second or third day ; and I am told they are now settled in Ghisni, where good bazaars hate been opened and grain in abundance procurable. I remained in the Fort for serrai dajs, andean vouch for th« truth of what I have stated so much for < the veil of mystery that hangs over the massacre at Ghizni.' Wuly Mahomed occupied a house with about 60 armed men, from which a constant fire was kept up the greater part of the day ; ...

PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 13 March 1840

PORT PHILLIP. Ry advices finm our correspondent we find that (he general character of our wool was, that it appeared of » texture and staple between Van Diemcn's Land and New South Wales; .that little or no fine woolletl sheep have yet been introduced, and that the state in which it was sent lo market showed either careless- ness or ignorance both in washing and packing. Careful, however, as our correspondent seems to have beeu in his investigation, he has not hit upon the cor- rect origin of its inferiority of appearance. Indeed, when we consider the comparative drought of the last shearing season, and the distressing scarcity of hands, we may congratulate the wool growers of ? Australia Felix on the promising results of their labours. Many circumstances tended to operate against the healthy growth of last year's produce ; greater part of the flocks were shorn either subse- quent to their transportation from Launceston, or their travel overland from Sydney, iu both of which cases t...

The Courier. FRIDAY EVENING, MARCH 1[?], 1840. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 13 March 1840

. ÍR%$ CHttVt*t% J FRIDAY EVENING. MARCH 13,1840. THE Quarterly " Budget" of the Revenue and Expenditure, as compared with the corresponding quarter of last year has been published. The Revenue yields £35,260, including £1,287 19s. depouledby the Registrar of the Supreme Court, which is as much revenue as the property of any private individual may be considered to be. The Expenditure amounts to £31,975. The Police is paid according to the scale of last year, and tlie Land Fund suffers to the tune of £3,708, which we see is the produce of the sales of last quarter, non obstante the vote of the Legislative Council. There is awarded to Messrs. Smith and Hackett-further compensation, amounting to £316 18s. 9d., but what is the rate of compensa- tion? To Mr. Turnbull is given the sum of £300, as a bonus upon his plant. THE secret is at length out. The arrange- ments consequent upon the departure of Mr. Elliott have been at last allowed to transpire through an obscure paragraph in the 'Ti...

INDIA. MADRAS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 13 March 1840

INDIA. MADRAS.   Awful Hurricane.—This dreadful storm appears to have taken a rather extensive sweep, as intelligence has been received of its visiting, at about the same time, not only Coringa, but also Samulcottah, Rajah- mundry, Cocanada, and Vizagapatam. As regards the loss of human life, Coringa appears to have been the spot selected for the most awful demonstration of Almighty power. CORINGA. " We have been visited on the night of the 16th instant by the most terrible gale of wind possible. Your house at Ingeram is completely unroofed, the trees, walls of the compound destroyed, and P was very nearly drowned. All the European and native houses are not inhabitable, and there is nothing to be seen from Coringa to that but a heap of ruins. " The wind began to blow in the afternoon of the 16th but was moderate till 11 o'clock in the night of the same day, when it became furious and lasted till 4 o'clock the next Sunday.
