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

gffrg eûUViVVo FRIDAY EVENING, Apbil 17,1840. Unwilling as we should be to disturb the existence of so very rare a quality of disposition amongst us as unanimity of purpose in a cause in which the best interests of the community are at stake, we must nevertheless neglect a public duty, as well as lend ourselves to the prejudice of those interests and advantages which it is false to fancy can be promoted by the union of the bad and good, if we omitted to impress upon all engaged in the objects of the foithcoming meet- ings, the absolute necessity of excluding from their composition even the appearance of disrepute. We know very well that we shall be met with the usual excuses of trouble and business, and a disinclination to move ; and perhaps not a few will acknowledge that they are unwilling to give umbrage to any party, and that to do a great right they have no objection to the admission of a little wrong ; but to such persons we say, that their own indifference and apathy, arising...

THIS MORNING'S POST. (From the Launceston Advertiser.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 17 April 1840

THIS MORNING'S POST. I (From the Launceston Advertiser.) , \ The Supreme Court opened yesterdny morning or the trial of criminal cases. Wc arc unable to give tie par- ticulars of the trials in this week's publication, bit have prepared a full report for our next. The case )f Mr. Dawson, for forgery, was the first upon the list ; lie was found puilty, and remanded to gaol, to await his seitcncc. This morning at 9 o'clock is the time appointed for the hearing of civil cases. It appears somewhat singular to us, that even up to the moment of the sitting of the court, neither lawyers or sheriff appeared to luve the most remote idea as to whether the criminal or civil cases would be tried first. Sudden Death.-On Monday morning, a person named Matthews, who recently entered into partnership with a Mr Mason, as coach builder, &c, expired from, a sudden attack of delirium tremens. On the Saturday night pre- vious, the deceased was in excellent health, and paid his men their wages as ...

The Courier. THURSDAY EVENING, April 16, 1840. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 17 April 1840

CÏK Courier« '' ri. THURSDAY EVENING, April 16,' 1840. Here is another poem from the never-dying muse of Moore ! In playfulness of fancy, and brightness of imagery, it is equal to some of his best compositions. We make no excuse, there- fore, for presenting our readers with rather lengthened extracts, quite certain that the in- habitants of Tasmania, notwithstanding the nega- tive qualities of disposition and character im- puted to them at home, are fully able to appre- ciate their beauties. We are not blessed with hurdy-gurdies or barrel-organs in this hemis- phere, but claim some exemption from the tomb of oblivion, in an occasional offering to the muses, which passes through the colony with the swiftness of the Highland fire-brand, visiting the mansion and the cottage, and thereby indicating a taste for the " tender and true." We allude more particularly to The vow that's breathed in solitude. The Epicurean, a Tale ; and Alciphron, a Poem. By Thomas Mooan, Esq. The form of Alciph...

We fully agree with our friend-. to whom we take this opportunity of returning our be9t thanks for his attention-that at the present moment any account of New Zealand will be particularly interesting to the public ; and as we feel satisfied that our readers will be highly gratified with the perusal, we give it a place in our columns without any further preface.

THIS MORNING'S POST. (From the Launceston Advertiser.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 24 April 1840

THIS MORNING'S POST. I ÍFrom the Launceston Advertiser.) I We have jim seen a prospectus of a company, to be called the " Hobart'Town, Launceston, and Port Phillip Steam Navigation Company," for tho purpose of facili- tating the trade between the above purts. It is proposed ' to rnise a capital of £20,000, in shares of £.~i0 each ; no individual being allowed to subscribe for more than five shares. The company, we believe, contemplates the pur- I chase of a stcam-tuji expressly for this river, the advantages of which to the shipping and general tindo of Launceston will be incalculable. A copy of the prospectus lies at each of the banks, and upwards of 4U0 shares have beeu sub- scribed for. On Monday last, the schooner Eagle, bound for Port- land Hay, having on board 730 sheep, struck upon a rock in Whirlpool Iteach, whilst going down the river, mid shortly uftenvnrds foundered. The sheep ami-cattle were landed safe, and it is supposed that the vessel will be got up without much trou...
