©ff CDttft*?« FRIDAY EVENING, MAY I, 1840. WEDNESDAY being the day appointed for the ^General Meeting upon Emigration, with a view to memorialize His Excellency to adopt imme- diate measures to avert the evils arising from the great dearth of labour which at present exists, by suspending the orders from the Home Go- vernment for the discontinuance of assignment, as a temporary expedient, and diverting the Land Fund to its original and legitimate pur- poses of Emigration, and thereby procuring an extensive importation of free labour, the town was thronged at an cavly hour by gentlemen from all parts of the country, many of whom came from distances of forty, fifty, and sixty miles, whicli might prove, not only the interest which the question excites, but the absolute necessity that urges as well as animates nil in the cause in which their best interests aro at stake. The Theatre was the place chosen for the meeting, and the boxes, pit, and stage pre- sented the appearance of a more th...
TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 1 May 1840
&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. SIR,- &nbsp; Having endeavoured to prove that the law does not give to any one person the power of reversing the unqualified acquittals of Justices of the Peace, it will require but little ability to show that even if such power, (to us hitherto entirely unknown,) be &nbsp; vested in Governors, it would tend to no good, but must render the laws ineffective, and disgust those to whom their administration is confided. The Magistrates of this colony, like those of Eng- land, are generally chosen (or could be so) from among the most talented and independent clergy, merchants, and landholders. They do not, however, possess either the influence or personal consideration that recompenses their labour in England. Here, their office is one of mere trouble and expense. The only motive with high-minded gentlemen for accepting an office of this nature must be a...

SUPREME COURT-CRIMINAL SIDE. TUESDAY, 28TH APRIL. Before His Honor Mr. Justice Montagu and a Military Jury, Henry Robinson was charged with feloniously receiving some mutton.

SUPREME COURT-SITTINGS IN BANCO. Before both Judges. TUESDAY, MAY 5. The Attorney-General upon being called on to move, rose and said that he had much pleasure in yielding to the request which had been made to kim, in moving that Mr. Thomas Chisholms Anstey, a member of the English Bar, be admitted without the usual term's notice, to practice in this honourable court as a Barrister, Solicitor, and Proctor. He granted his motion on a recent rule of this court, by which on the certificate of either of Hie Judges, that he was satisfied with the respectability of any member of the bar applying for admission, the term's notice should be deemed unnecessary. The learned Putane* Judge had been pleased to grant that certificate, and it was accompanied by the certificate of the Treasurer of the Middle Temple, that Mr. Anstey had been called to the bar in June, 1839, by that honorable society. There was also Mr. Anstey's own affidavit that he was the person referred to in that certificate. Und...

PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 8 May 1840
PORT PHILLIP. A handsome Fish-Hall has been built in M'Killop street, which will be opened in the course of a few weeks, the edifice having been rented for that pur. pose by Mr. Murison. The fishermen on the beach have been amply supplied with nets of all descrip- tions, and a horse and cart hired for the conveyance and distribution of this unwonted luxury throughout the town. Fish of every description, including oysters and shrimps, will presently be obtained at a moderate price, and in ti continued manner.-Port Phillip Gazette, April 15. In last Wednesday's publication we inserted an extract from the Colonial Times, describing a battle which had taken place at Portland Bay, between the natives and the Messrs. White, who occupy a station about sixty miles from that settlement. From the statement of Mr. White himself, who came to Mel- bourne to report the circumstance to the Superintend- ent, we are enabled to correct several errors into which our contemporary has been led.

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. IT is a singular circumstance, that of four female sovereigns that have occupied the throne of England, not one ever was a mother. Three out of the four were married :-The first Mary, married to Philip of Spain ; the second Mary, joined in the sovereignty with her ever-to-be remembered William III. ; and Anne married to Prince George of Denmark ; Elizabeth never was married. None of the three, however, left a child to inherit her crown. Fire at the House of Lords.-On Monday night, between eleven and twelve o'clock, the firemen at the Chandos-street station were called upon by a gentleman in breathless haste, who stated that the House of Lords was on fire. The engineer, accompanied by his men, immediately repaired to the spot, when they discovered that an iron Hue which proceeded from an office in what is called "The Queen's Entrance" and which led to the exterior of the building, having become foul, had ignited. The fire was speedily extinguished.-Times, Nov. 20. I...
