FRANCS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 12 February 1841
FRANCS. The télégraphie dispatches from Marseilles of Thunda«, Friday, and Saturday, announcing the fall of Beyrout, produced as great r sensation as if the news had been 'that án English fleet had burned Havre. Depression on the Bourse and excitement everywhere else, were the consequence ; and "war, war," was the cry of Carlist, Orleanist, Republican, and Bonapartist, « War against England." M. Thiers, however, had previously declared that the taking of Beyrout would not be the casus belli. We were assured several days since (says a Brus- sels journal) that the French ministry had returned an answer in very harsh terms to the note of August 81, which must have convinced Lord Palmerston that the object he wished to gain had not been attained. The French ministry were divided on the war question. A Cabinet Council was held on Saturday, which was presided over by Louis Philippe, when a most animated discussion on the policy to be pursued took place. M. Thiers and his friends were for ...

THE COURIER. Strrnuc et Çrosptrr. HOBART TOWN. FRIDAY. FEBRUARY 12. A CORRESPONDENT enquires of us why we have not made some comments on the recent trial of Messrs. Jackson and Addison for libel ? Why we should have done so we know not, seeing1 that the libel and the sentence are sufficiently intelligible not to be mis* understood, except by the wilfully wicked, or those .ho mask their own interest under the «how of big words, and at the same time that they are tortur- ing themselves into attitudes of affected indignation and pretended patriotism, are but calculating, like the enraged priestess of the temple, upon the extent of the offering which their benighted votaries are likely to lay «pon the altar of Gain, on which so many vic» tim« have been already sacrificed. The oracles of law in this as in most other countries must be fed would that we could say that they were as well taught .. fed, for thoo we might hope that we should have not only les» law but better manners, nor would...
