The Courier. FRIDAY EVENING, APRIL 10, 1840. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 10 April 1840

The Courier. FRIDAY EVENING, April, 10, 1840. A Preliminary Meeting has been held at New Norfolk, with the view of calling a general meeting on the 21st of this month, to take into consideration the question of emigration. We understand,- also, that a requisition has been ad- dressed to the Sheriff to call a meeting in Hobart Town. The agitation has commenced, but caro should be taken, even in the general disposition of the community to encourage every means to effect a great end, that duo provision bo made against the intrusion of disreputable allies. The times don't want such defenders as these. The object of a meeting is at once destroyed by such adventitious aid. It is forthwith converted into a caricature, the ridiculous resemblance of life. Who, at Rome, as our friend David Burn would say in the richness of his historical examples, could endure the turbulent Gracchi complaining of sedition? Who, in any country, can bear vice proclaiming itself virtue? The respectable portion o...

PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 10 April 1840

PORT PHILLIP. We have received Port Phillip papers to the 1st of April. The following are extracts :-. PORTLAND BAY. A gentleman who has lately arrived from the recently located district of Portland Bay, has communicated to us a few interesting points of information, by which it appears that a very beautiful and fertile spot of country surrounds the site of the future township, limited however to a circle of a few miles. A stringy bark forest of forty miles in extent forms a belt between the port and the rich grazing lands beyond. The Messrs. Henty have succeeded in making a line of communication through this hitherto unattempted space of country, but have found that a scarcity of water increases the difficulties of the route. Two watercourses, consisting of a succession of water holes, intersect the forest at a distance of nearly fifteen miles the one from the other. Care must be taken by the traveller to ascertain the exact position of these, for failing this supply, no other wate...

LOCAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 10 April 1840

LOCAL. The Derwent Steam Boat.-Much disap- pointment was created in consequence of the Steam Boat not running from New Norfolk on Tuesday last, as the public had been led to anticipate from the announcements which had been circulated to that effect. The delay, we have ascertained, was unavoidable ; and arose   from the necessity of buoying off a part of the river about Long Reach, where, in the first expe- rimental trip noticed in our last number, she had grounded and was detained for nearly two hours. To guard against such accidental delays in future, the proprietors judiciously determined to post- pone the day of starting the vessel on her regular trips to and from New Norfolk, and in the interim have completed their survey of the river and placed additional buoys. It is now therefore arranged, that the Dérivent steamer shall leave the Old Wharf on Monday next, when she will work up to New Norfolk, and bo ready to commence her regular daily trips from that place on Tu...

SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 17 April 1840

SYDNEY. We henr, with much satisfaction, that His Excel lincy the Governor has adopted some of the necessary p-eciiulions ugninst the introduction of that dreadful fever into this colony which has raged with such vnlence in Van Diemen's Land. We trust those aready taken will be followed up by others, in order tiat there may be no room for reu ret er blame in case the dreaded calamity may reach us. The Magistracy -Very few unpnid magistrates at end to their duties, in the town of Sydney espe citlly. Some of them have never entered the Police o flier (except on an electioneering occasion, such as voting for Chairman of Quarter Sessions,) since they were put in the commission of the peace. They seem to think it is for their own honour, and not for the public benefit, that they are placed in such a re. sponsible situation. We hope the Governor will leave out from anv new commission he may issue, all those persons who ha\e so much neglected their duties. The conduct of the magistracy in ...

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 17 April 1840

MISCELLANEOUS. The Dulce of Wellington.-The following anecdote, connected willi the exploits of his Grace the Duke of Wellington, as a fox-hunter, is notgeuerally known, though characlciistic in more than one point of view : -It is well known that his grace's noble estate, Strathfieldsaye, is in the immediate neighbourhood of the hunting establishment of the Rrnmshill fox- hounds, and that his grace is a liberal subscriber to the maintenance of the puck, and when in Hampshire a constant attendant in the " field'* with Sir John Cope. His grace, though a good military horseman, and a good rider in the riding-school sense of the word, is anv thing but a good horseman across a coun- try, and has no idea of a steeple-chase heat. Never- theless, he is a bold rider, and never hesitates to go straightforward after the bounds. The consequence is, that the noble duke generally gels three or four tumbles every time he takes the field, though fortu- nately, from his activity and lightuebs of fi...

ENGLISH. TRICKS OF THE COLONIAL OFFICE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 17 April 1840

ENGLISH. TRICKS OV THE COLONIAL OFFICE. Last week we had occasion to say-" Our readers must perceive that the function of this journal, as . an eye upon the Colonial Office,' is by no means a sinecure." The remark was suggested by two or three sentences which pre- ceded it, and which we now reprint. " Mr. Charlea Buller has accepted the ofiice of Political Agent to a body of capitalists in New South Wales. To his attention we would commend, as a subject of very useful inquiry, the mode in which that portion of the new South Wules Emigration Fund, which has not been diverted from its proper purpose, has been expended. Mr. Elliot, the Agent General for Emigration, has this j ear neglected to make a Report ; or, if he has mude one, the Colonial Office jins neglected to present it to Parliament. Why this mystery 1 We should be sorry to trench on Mr. ßiiller's proper functions; but if he neglect a matter of such great importance to his constituents, others will not." The statement that e...

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. We have received South Australian papers to the 19th March. Flour was quoted at from £90 to £100 per ton, yet our friends are buoyant enough in spirit, 1er we now find "the volun- teers" in full force ready for a tournament. Of what use can these troopers and grenadiers be to the people?

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. Trial Voyage of the East India Company's War Steamer Cleopatra-On Thursday this splendid vessel (lately launched from Mr. l'ikher's Northfleet Duck- yard,) left her moorings at Blackwall, on the trial voyage. She proceededI to Qiiceiihithc, and, although I drawing fourteeu feet of water, coutrived to get past the fleetest Giaveseud packets. On her return to her moorings, a sumptuous entertainment was given on board by Lieutenant Sumners, H.N., the respected Commander, to a select party, who separated highly gratified with the day's excursion. The cost of the copper boilers alone will amount to nearly £20,000, and it will require £100,000 to cover the outlay ou this splendid vessel.

To the Editor of the Hobart Town Courier. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 17 April 1840

To the Editor of the Hobart Town Courier. Sir, A short time since I made a statement in the Laun- ceston papers, to the effect that a prisoner holding a ticket-of-leave had been tried three times on different points of the same imputed offence, and after being as often acquitted, was, in consequence of a letter sent to the Chief Police Magistrate by the prose- cutor, ordered to a road party and to lose his ticket, although the Magistrate's decision of his innocence was allowed by Government to be both according to law and conscience, and that the letter causing such reversal of decision had been twice refused to be shown to the unpaid Magistrate who assisted at the trial, and has not yet been shown to him. As a state- ment totally opposed to this has been made in the Launceston papers, and in the Hobart Town papers also, I trust you will have the kindness to insert my reply. In the Cornwall Chronicle of the 6th or 7th instant, Mr. O'Connor, the prosecutor, writes that (Woolley) inst...

PORT PHILLIP. Port Phillip papers to the 10th of April came to hand this morning, from which we extract the following : Hie Commissariat.-Mr. Arnold, Assistant Commis- sary General, has, we arc given to understand, been ap- pointed by the homo Government to a new office-that of Colonial Commissary-about to be created. We are not aware either of the nature of the duties or the extent of the emoluments, but we presume the latter must be considerable, else it would scarcely have sufficed to induce Mr. Arnold to abandon the golden harvest he has reaped since he came to Australia Felix. Intestate Estates.-XVc learn by private letters received yesterday from Sydney, that James Smith, Esq., of Mel- bourne, has been appointed by J. E. Manning, Esq., Registrar of the Supreme Court of New South Wales, to act on his behalf in all coses of intestacy in this district. .This appointment was till lately held by It. II.

LOCAL. I We have much pleasurein noticing the publU cation of a useful little book, a copy of which has been politely forwarded to us, entitled the ' Licensed Victuallers' Directory,' and contain- ing a complete set of all the Acts of Council which either affect or relate to the licensed vic- tuallers in this colony; together with a sum- mary of the proceedings, regulations, and bye. laws of the Society. This useful compendium has been prepared and arranged by Mr. John Morgan, to whose zeal, and untiring exertions the Society of Licensed Victuallers may be said to owe its present existence as a united body. The objects of this Society are not only to pro- vide for the mutual benefit and protection of de- cayed or distressed members of the trade and their families, as well as to promote their general respectability, but its ulterior object aims at something higher and far more important namely, the eventual foundation of a school fur the general education of their children, and the e...
