Richard Styles, a prisoner in the Richmond chain gang, was tried for stabbing the deputy-overseer of the party in the arm, whilst the latter was endeavour- ing to prevent his absconding. He was fouud guilty. Tucsdav, 24th March. Before both Judges. The case of Richard Manning, who had been con- victed of manslaughter, was argued with much ability by Mr. Ross, who contended that inasmuch as the name of the deceased, as laid in the information, was different from that proved by one of the wit- nesses on the trial, no seutence should be passed upon him. The Court, however, overruled the ob- jection, and the prisoner...
SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 10 April 1840
- ??inniiw ii min iiiwuiM SYDNEY. The draft of the Sydney Municipal Bill has, we believe, been framed. The Bill is based, we apprehend, upon the elective principle. Electors (qualification hereafter to be deter- mined upon) to appoint common councilmen. Theoc to elpct alderim-n, aklcimen to elect the mayor. We have said that so far as the Bill is concerned, founded, as it is reported to be, upon the elective principle, we are tho warm advo- cates of such a measure. But let us not be misunderstood. We would much rather have no Bill of the sort, if the most entire power within the limits of Sydney is not conferred upon the created authorities. We will protest against the measure at once, if it is to be sad- dled with the provided interference, whenever he may think proper, of the Governor. Far better that matters rest where they are, if the shadow only, instead of the substance, is pre- sented to our grasp.-Australian, March 26. We are enabled to state, with gratification, that it is ...

THIS MORNING'S POST. (From the Launceston Advertiser.) i.sdy iM'ankliti's " at home" was hold at Government Cottage on Wednesday week hist. Tho company began to assemble at about TI o'clock, und in the course of the evening, Her Ladyship nnd Ilis Excellency were visited by about 200 of tho'móst respectable inhabitants of Laun- ceston anil its vicinity. A more than commonly beautiful assembly of the "fair sex," con&tituiod the chief fascination and interest of the scene. Oh I what would not .?1m&lt; have given to Iiave witnessed " Those classical profiles and glittering dresses, Those larne black eyes and soft seraphic cheeks." How noun would the memory of the fascinating bluc-cyed beauty of the Richmond races have been evaporated from his wind by the warmth and expression of the black-eye of the north. " And then her looks, oh 1 whore's the heart so wiso Could, unbcwildcrcd, meet those matchless eyes." How soon would the two gallant contemporaries of the south, the '...

To the Proprietor of the Hobart Town Courier. I Jockey of Norfolk be not too bold, For Dickon thy mailor'» bought and told. Si»,-Called upon personally by the Hobart Town Ad- vertiser, I have no hesitation whatever in answering the appeal. The imputation of motives appears rather fashion« ?ble game with the ruling powers.

The Courier. THURSDAY EVENING, APRIL 9, 1840. SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 10 April 1840
?i)t Coulter» THURSDAY EVENINCK Awbil 9, 1840. SYDNEY. The Fire.-Aa appcared_in our last Wednesday's paper, the * Old Theatre' and the" .loyal Hotel were completely destroyed by fire early on Wednesday morning. From what has transpired as to the origin of this unfortunate affair, it would seem that the accident originated in the drunkenness of a servant of Mr. Blanch's, ironfoundcr, on whose premises the fire commenced. The stables, con- taining a large quantity of straw, &c., were ignited, and the flames spread up the wall to the roof of the Royal Hotel ; the shingles immediately caught fire, and it became utterly impossible to arrest the progress of the flames until the building was completely gutted. The efforts of those present, when it was seen that there was no chance of saving the hotel, were all directed to the saving of the adjoining houses, and were fortunately successful. Major Barney and Captain Collins were remarkable in their efforts, standing exposed on the sh...

TO CORRESPONDENTS. \ Hospitality is informed that his advertisement was inserted exactly according to copy. The advertisement itself escaped the observation of the Editor of the Courier, who, for the future, would beg to decline such contriliU' tions, which, whether meant in jest or sprightly satire, lack marvellously of wit. A SUBSCRIBER.- We have received a communication on the subject of the Steam-Boat running on Sunday, dictated in good, but we think, erroneous feeling. We can see no harm in these excursions. "The Orphan School Robbery" we shall dispose of in our &nbsp; next. In the meantime, our readers will beor in mind that it was only the Manager of St. Andrew's who applied for the land, and not the Presbytery.
