CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 29 January 1841
CHINA. The following particulars from China bate not yet been -published ia Hobart Town : 7 Yesterday afternoon the arrival of the Spanish brig .'Iberia was reported from Macao the 13th July, and we have received letters to that date with the'Canto* Register of the 7th and Press of the lllh same month. .The intelli- gence by this opportunity is of very little interest, and we publish an Extra merely that our readers may be in pos. session of the most recent tidings from á quarter to which attention is at present so strongly directed. Much dis. .satisfaction prevails at the very inefficient manner in 3*hich the blockade is said to be maintained. It seems ¡that such junks as are taken laden with salt, arc restored, bat the cargo detained, as the article forms one of the .Government monopolies, while rice and other grain pass Tree, the Macao passage being left open ; and the exports from Macao remain unmolested, apparently under an un- derstanding to that effect. Nothing had been heard...

THE COURIER. Str[?] [?]t Prospere. HOBART TOWN, FRIDAY, JANUARY 29. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 29 January 1841
THE COURIER. strenue et prospere HOBART TOWN, FRIDAY, JANUARY 29. WE have this morning received, via Port Phillip, private advices from London to the 7th of October. Mr. Montagu was to embark on board the Lady Raffles at Portsmouth, on the 5th of November, to which ship Mr. Wylie had been appointed Surgeon Superintendent. Another convict ship was to follow the Lady Raffles from Sheerness with 250 male con- victs, and tile Mary Anne t and British Sovereign were ordered to Dublin, to take on board convicts from that place. There were therefore in November last four vessels freighted with prisoners for Van Diemen's Land, as all these vessels were taken up for this colony. SOME discussion has existed of late relative to the &nbsp; supply of Hobarton with pure water, and several gen- tlemen have, as we understand, already formed them- selves into a Company, to promote this most im- portant and beneficial undertaking-; and have, with this view, made certain propositions to the Gov...
COLONIAL PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 2 February 1841
COLONIAL PRESS. Bush fires still continue very prevalent, much more so than «as ever known in former years. At Campbell Town, parties have been employed for several days «nd nights in beating away the fires to save the fences and crops. A settler on the east bank of the Tamar has had upwards of four hun- dred pounds worth of wheat destroyed by one of these fires. A fire has been burning to the eastward for several weeks, and has run over nearly forty miles of ground, destroying every vestige of herbage within that space; the eattle are greatly distressed for food and .water. The road to George Town is represented to us as being like a passage between numberless columns of fire, which every now and then fall across the road, to the great danger of travellers. In every part of the country these fires are raging, in many places causing much destruction, and invariably creating great alarm. When it is reflected how much of this is occasioned by carelessness, surely it is time for some p...
ENGLISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 2 February 1841
ENGLISH EXTRACTS. Law-Suit against the Queen.- The Orange Grand Mas- ter is, it would appear, determined to proceed with his suit against the Queen, for the recovery of certain Crown jewels which be claims. Sir C. Wetherall is going-one account say« he has gone-to Hanover, with the deposi- tion« of the Princess Augusta, so that we may expect an early commencement of the litigation. The following statement upon the subject is from the London correspon- dent of the Caledonian Mercury.-" There are strange doings in the shape of constitution-making going forward at Hanover. Ring Ernest is having it all his own way with his senators. He is still carping at a few of the jewels in the British diadem, which he is claiming as his right, and insists upon them without etiquette or reserve towards her Majesty. I stated last week that the deposi- tions of the Princess Augusta in respect to them were taken on her sick couch; they consist of conversations that she had heard fall from her royal fat...
TREATISE ON SHEEP &c. CHAP. XII. THE ALPACA—THE PALMITE AND CONCLUDING REMARKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 2 February 1841
TREATISE ON SHEEP &c. CHAP. X11. THE ALPACA-THE PALMITE AND CONCLUDING REMARKS. There is still another domestic animal, likely to become a productive stock, and consequently deserving of the Colonists' notice. This is the Alpaca, a native of Peru, and as I mentioned it in my last treatise I ought not altogether to omit it in the present edition. At the time the Spaniards conquered Peru, they found the natives in possession of two domestic ani- mals, used as beasts of burden and also valupd for their flesl», skins, and wool. These animals are the Llama and Alpaca, and they rank as a kind of middle species between the camel and the sheep, partaking of the properties of both. So valuable are their services stitl considered that, in the interior provinces of Peru, there is scarcely a cottager who does not keep a dozen llamas and as many alpacas. The first serve to carry his corn, his potatoes, and his fruit to market, while the wool of the latter clothes his family, and the fles...
WHAT CHANCE HAS FRANCE IN GOING TO WAR? [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 2 February 1841
wavr.cuA.xei HAS FRANCS IN GOING TO WAR? Since the warlike preparations of the Trench Go- vernment still continue, and since M. Thiers replies to the pacific assurances of some of the French jour- nals, by asking, through his own immediate organ, what these preparations are for if not for war, it is quite time that the English press should take another tone. Instead of making futile appeals to the sense of the French nation, it becomes us now to tell that people a few severe but sober truths, and to show 'France, not wby she should not go to war, but why -.he dare not. 'There never was a period since France was a nation "when France was loss able to sustain a severe contest than she at this moment is ; there never was a period .ince England was a nation when England was more powerful or more impregnable. Let us suppose for a moment that all this callinsr - out of conscriptions and fitting out of ships were not, what it is, a piece of 'Bobadil bombast, intended to cover a ministerial...
