FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. SPAIN. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 16 October 1840
FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. Of Spanish news, the latest accounts from Barcelona, are dated the alii June. Intelligeucc of the fate of Morella reached that city on the preceding day, when the bells of the churches were put in motion, auJ " Te dennis" chauuted in commemoration of the fortunate event. General Van Halen, who was nearly recovered from his wounds, received a despatch on the 6th, announcing that Cabrera had crossed the Ebro, and entered Catalonia, at the head of 4,01)0 men, followed by General Leopold O'Donnell. The news of the fall of Cantavicja is confirmed by a dispatch of O'Donnell's to Espartero, in which he states that-" The rebels, who were doubtless terrified at the preparations made for the attack of the forts and fortified town of Cantavicja, abandoned them last night, having previously set fire to the town, carrying their barbarity to the extreme point of destroying by fire their own hospital, as well as their wounded and helpless sick who were not in a condition to m...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 16 October 1840
TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. Sir,-It is with great reluctance that I again enter on the subject of my resignation of the office of magistrate, but the repeated observations on the conduct of those magistrates who acted with me, but who did not resign, makes it my duty again to express my sentiments. On deliberate reflection, I am con- vinced that the case is this :-A prosecutor, considering the de- cision of two magistrates, in acquitting a prisoner, to be incor- rect, applies by a letter, stating his views of the subject, to the Chief Police Magistrate, who, by direction of the Governor, (I again deny that I attribute corrupt motives to any concerned,) changes the acquittal into punishment. This I consider to be entirely at variance with the law. He (the Governor) gives no opportunity to the adjudicating magistrates to defend their decision, nor allows any further public trial or investigation. This I consider to show contempt towards the magistrates and cruelty towards the prison...
THE COURIER. Strenue et Drospcre. HOBART TOWN, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 16. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 16 October 1840
THE COURIER. âtrenue et Drospcre. HOBART TOWN, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 16. A UNIVERSAL panic appears to pervade the Money Market. The Banks, for reasons best known to themselves, have for Rome time past been curtailing their discounts, and a general pressure has consequently affected the commercial and agricul- tural interests 'throughout the whole colony. In the midst of plenty, and with every promise of a most abundant harvest this year, it was suddenly discovered by the force of some financial microscope, that we were overtrading-that the specie was not more than a tenth of the paper afloat, and that the colony was in fact-bankrupt. How it came to pass that this discovery was made just at the most pros- perous period the colony has ever yet seen, and not at other times when bills were far more bountiful than the harvest, is a problem which requires to be solved at the bands of our-modern financial prophets. Why so lately did'the Banks encourage that over- trading, and why so lately did t...

COLONIAL PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 16 October 1840
COLONIAL PRESS." CORONER'S INQUEST JURORS' BILL.-This Bill came into operation the first of the present month, and it is as well for the public to treasure up a simple fact, that instead of attending or not, as jurors, after being duly summoned, which has been the fashion heretofore, they will be visited in future for such contempt with a penalty of £10, and the Coroner has no power to mitigate the same. Only seven jurymen are now impanelled, instead of twelve aud up- wards, as of old.-Cormcall Chronicle, Oct. 10. The number of jurors for the district of Launceston, and the sub-districts of George Town and Morven, as the Jury List at present stands, is 422. Of course this number will be much reduced when the question of exemption has been decided ; and doubtless the severe scrutiny which will be instituted, will assist in making a further reduction in these numbers.-Ibid. DR. HODSON.-A report having been circulated that Dr. Hobson had died at Port Phillip, we are requested lo con- t...
