[ADVERTISEMENT. ] 1FEEL myself under the painful necessity of .bringing before the public an occurrence, which, were 1 to let pass unnoticed, would be, / sincerely beheve, departing from my duty ns a member of the medical profession and a gentleman, leaving the public therefore to judge, and ap- prove or condemn, as it may think fit, the motives and designs of the gentleman, tha propriety of whose conduct I am about to call .In question. I shall now merely sute the facts, and wbst steps I thought necessary to adopt. A parlent, named Sparks, had been in the Colonial Hospital Tor upwards of six weeks, labouring under a severe injury of the knee joint, occasioned by his falling while drunk down the main-hatchway of a merchant vessel. After having done every- thing that could be devised for his recovery, a consultation was held, when it was deemed advisable that the limb should be re- moved ; in this, the patient expressed his entire concurrence, at the same timedesiring that he might h...

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. Colonial Secretary's Office, Adelaide, 28th Nov. 1840. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 2 February 1841

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. Colonial Secretary's Office, Adelaide, 28th Nov. 1840. SIR,-I am desired by his Excellency Colonel Gaw- ler, to return you his acknowledgment« for the deli, cate and honorable manner in which you have proceeded in reference to the Commissioners' immigrants in South Australia, as appears in the letter of the 7th October, 1840, addressed lo me. In reply lo this communication, I am desired by his Excellency lo inform you, that he does not think there is ut this moment u real surplus of labour in South Australia. The apparent surplus of labourers employed on Govern- ment works arises, the Governor thinks, from two causes. 1st-The very high rate of wages, by which country helliers are deterred fioin employing us many labourera as they really require ; and 2ml, from the ill-health,constitutional indolence, or large families, of a very large poitionofthe persons who are thus employed by the Government. The Government has a large field of reasonably useful work for such per...

LOCAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 2 February 1841

LOCAL. This morning a commission of enquiry, with a com- mon jury, sat in the Supreme Court, for the purpose of ascertaining the amount of the several sums which have been paid to Mr. Hugh Ross, on the part of the Crown, and not accounted for by him. Messrs. Sorell and Champ were the commissioners ; and from the number of witnesses to be examined, the enquiry will, most probably, be of some duration. Yesterday afternoon the Supreme Court opened for the purpose of delivering judgment upon Messrs. Jackson, Addison, and M'Laren, for the libel on Captain Swanston, as a member of the Legislative Council, ol' which they werefound guilty on Saturday last. Mr. Jones argued in behalf of an arrest of judgment, and at great length explained the circum- stances which appeared to demand such a course. His Honor the Chief Justice acquiesced in the motion, and judgment was deferred until Thursday next. It was currently reported yesterday that the Mary Gray, from London, was on the Acteon Reef, in ...

THE COURIER. Str[?]ue et Prospere. HOBART TOWN, TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 2. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 2 February 1841

THE COURIER. âttruuc et prospere. HOBART TOWN. TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 2. HOWEVER excited parties in Europe may be on the momentous 6tibjoct of the talked of war, and however the question may assume, chameleon-like, its many colours, accordiug to the medium through which it is there viewed by different writers ; we cannot but ex- press our utter and energetic dissent to its being1 made a means of unsettling the public mind in this remote colony, and thus inflicting an endless train of anxieties and evils upon our speculations »rid pursuits. We look upon the frothy ebullition, whirjh it is our pain and annoyance to encounter in most of our colonial papers, as rather characteristic of "the hasty pugnacity of boyhood, than the dispassionate and coolly political view of such a subject, which those who pretend to the conduct of public journals should alone be expected to take. Foolish apprehensions of an hostile visit are pro- mulgated byseveral papers. Thetown-thecolony, is in danger. An enli...

POLICE. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 5 February 1841

POLICE. The following is an epitome of the chief cases at the Police Oflice during the pust week : Ellen Fitzpatrick and her husband appeared to answer the complaint of a Mrs. Smith, who, with the assistance of Mr. Dogbeiry Poultney, charged them with stealing sun- dry old tin kettles and brokeu plates-the lot could be barely worth sixpence. It appeared the complainant rented a room at New Town, and, as she stated, left for a few days to go in the interior to see her husband, and ia her absence the above-named valuables were stolen. The poor woman stated in her defence, that the sundries wer« left by the complainant in an out-house, and were taken away by defendant's children. There appeared to be a great deal of angry feeling in the affair altogether, and it would have been more to the credit of Dogberry Poultney to have settled it amicably between the parties, than lo have brought it before the Court. The swearing to the properly, although of such insignificant value, obliged his ...

Those burning drops wrung from a breaking heart, f And murmured thus;- " | " My heart will still rebel- I Prayer cannot give me peace.
