LETTER FROM MR. BULLER TO THE PATRIOTIC ASSOCIATION. 1, Queen's Square place, Westminster, September 2, 1839. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 27 March 1840
LETTER FROM MR. BULLER TO THE PATRIOTIC ASSOCIATION. 1, Queen's Square place, Westminster, Septembers, 1839. GENTLEMEN,-Nothing has passed during the pre- sent session relative to New South Wales, except an Act for the renewal of the Act by which you are governed. In the preseut wretched slute of parties in this country, ministers had neither time nor in- clination to take up and treat with the attention which it deserved, a question of the magnitude of that of the preparation of a free constitution for New South Wales. The real truth is, that this and all other questions serve parliament now fur a mere trial of strength between the two parties. Whatever measure is proposed by ministers now, is sure Id be attacked by the other party without reference to its merits. .....*. As a member of parliament, I confess with shame, that in the present mood of our legislature, it is most unfortu- nate for any colony to be compelled to have lecourse to their decision. I do not justify or palliat...

CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 27 March 1840
I CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. We learn from the Cape papers lately re- ceived, that the small-pox had broken out with great virulence at Cape-town, having been intro- duced by a number of negroes, who were landed without any care or previous examination. The greatest alarm prevailed amongst the inhabitants, who were flying from the chance of contagion. The detachment of British troops stationed at Port Natal has been withdrawn, and it is said the emigrants forthwith hoisted Dutch colours, as if anxious to owe allegiance to Holland. To this England will hardly submit ; but it is somewhat amusing to remark the change in the tone of the4 Graham's Town Journal since this rumour was spread abroad. . Our readers have already seen the document of the emigrants declaring their 11,1 . ...-.«...Jl.» , J^., ,.r^I«-.... independence, which was loudly commended ; but no sooner is that declaration followed by au expression of their inclination than England can never allow that. the emigrants of Port Natal...
THE PENNY POSTAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 27 March 1840
THE PENNY POSTAGE. SOMETHING I want to write upon, to scare away each vapour, The " penny postage" shall I try ? why yes » I'll write on paper. Thy great invention, Rowland Hill, each person loudly hails Tlte females all are full of it, and so are all the mails ! This may be called the " penny age," and those who are not mulish Are daily growing " penny wise" though not, I hope, " pound foolish j" We've penny blacking, penny plays, penny mags, for information, And last "a penny post," which proveí we've lots of pen* tration. ~-I.?-_l_ll-? ??-I-I J Their lovc-sick thoughts, by this new Act may Lucy, _ j Jane, or Mary Array in airy diction, from Johnson's diction-ary ¡ Each maid will for the postman watch at the key-hole, like a cat, And spring towards the door whene'er there comes a great big "rat." Such lots of paper will be used by every scribbling elf, That each should he a paper manufacturer himself I To serve us all with ink enough they must have different plans : They must star...
ENGLISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 27 March 1840
. ENGLISH EXTRACTS. &nbsp; Mr. Henry Tufnell, private secretary of Lord Minto, is to be the new Lord of the Treasury. Mr. Tufnell has announced himself as a candidate for Devonport, as suc- cessor to Sir Edward Codrington, whose appointment to the command at Portsmouth has caused a vacancy in the representation of that borough. Mr. Tufnell is the son in-law of Sir W. Horton, to whom he was secretary when Sir W. Horton was Governor of Ceylon. If there be nothing in a name there is something in its sound, as we perceive when a Hamburg paper brings into the same line Count Gobbles and General Grabbe. The Duke of Newcastle is fortunate, he has lately pur- chased the estate on which are the Stately quarries out of which the new Houses of Parliament are to be built. " Foxhunting," shouts the Doncaster Gazette, "calls into exercise the best qualities of the rider, and the best powers of that generous creature, the horse. It is the most inviting, the most attractive, the most exciti...

The Courier. THURSDAY EVENING MARCH 26,1840. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 27 March 1840
Coe Courier» THURSDAY EVBNWG. MARCS 26,1840. ,S.BVKRAL documenta have b"ceñ published, em- bracing the opinions of Lords John Russell and Howick upon transportation to these colonies, out sf which have arisen the present arrangements with regard to Norfolk Island, the system of two years' probationary labour, and the granting of a licket-of-leave or passport to New South Wales and Van Diemen's Land at the expiration of such probationary period as the sentence of the prisoner may extend to. The only thing new seems to be the recommendation to establish another penal colony on the north-west coast of New Holland, and to make Moreton Bay the penal settlement for New South Wales. This, however, will be matter for future consideration ; and, indeed, the ?die question as treated in these papers is so overloaded with opinions and suggestions, so cumbered with crude notions, and so deficient in plain and practical representation of the real state of transportation and of the prisoner popu- ...
