HURRICANE AT PORT ESSINGTON. On Mondaj, the 25th November, 1889, Port Es. siuglon was visited by one of those awful hurricanes so common and destructive m the West Indies, Mauiitius, &c. The day previously, there was nothing indicating- any extraordinary change, as com- monly piecedes these st&lt; rms, either IU the appear- ance of the heaveiis or in the tempeiature. About sc\en o'clock in the evening, however, a squall from the southward worked gradually towards the settle- ment, and extended itself in ii very heavy thundei slorm, accompanied bj niosl vu id forked lightening, with tam and wind. This continued for about tliroe hours The heavens weie illuminated beautifully, there being scarcely a moment's cessation between flash and flush, and it appeared to issue from nil points of the compass The thunder almost instanta- neously succeeded the flashes , the rain dest» nded in torrents, gust followed gust so thickly th it the whole scene was terrifically grand.

THIS MORNING'S POST. (From the Launceston Advertiser.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 15 May 1840
THIS MORNING'S POST. (From the Launceston Advertiser.) The Pyramus, from this port, bound for London, which vessel cleared the heads on the 15th April, was compelled to bear up for Sydney, in consequence of springing a leak, after having been a few days at sea. The leak gradually increased until the vessel made twenty-five inches of water per hour, when the captain found it necessary to make for the nearest port, and arrived at Sydney on the 27th ult. A survey was held upon the vessel, when it was found that part of the cargo must be discharged for the purpose of effecting an efficient repair. The unfortunate occurrence will cause the detention of the vessel for a month or six weeks. We have received the above information (by letter) from a passenger on board, dated at Sydney, April 30, 1840. &nbsp; The schooner Eagle has been brought up to town for the purpose of being docked, it being found that the damage sustained by her in Whirlpool Reach, was much greater than was anti...
PORT PHILLIP. (From the Port Phillip Patriot, May 4.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 15 May 1840
PORT PHILLIP. (From the Port Phillip Patriot, May 4. ) Arrival of the 'China' with Immigrants. - We are at last happy to announce the arrival of the China. She anchored at Williams' Town on Saturday afternoon, after a passage of five months, with 240 immigrants, and about 30 passengers. Having sailed before the Louisa Campbell, which arrived here three weeks since, she brings no news of late date. She has had two deaths only during the voyage, one adult and one infant - six births have occurred, she consequently comes into port with an addition to her numbers since her departure from England. The China touched at the Cape of Good Hope, where she remained about ten days, during which time the British cruisers brought in several slavers which they had taken. Small- pox existed among the slaves to a serious extent. The immigrants by the China are a fine healthy set, and will be a valuable acquisition to the colony. Quarantine Station.-We are sorry to announce that we have just received...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 15 May 1840
TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. SIR,- j In the early part of September I was staying a fevv days al Holkham, to which place I had been invited, for the purpose of looking over the splendid farming I establishments conducted under the personal di- rections of the Earl of Leicester. As the information communicated by his Lordship may bo useful to those embarked in agricultural pursuits in the colony, I have drawn up a statement, brief as the nature of the subject will admit of, and if you should think the communication worthy a place in your journal, it is at your service for insertion. His Lordship has kindly given nie his permission to say from whence I derive the information which I com- municate. I will, first of all, premise that the present state of the Holkham Estate is a striking evidence of what may be accomplished by skill, perseverance, and a judicious application of capital. "The Mansion" (coveringan acre of ground) "was planned, built upon a barren waste, and inhabited by T...
The Courier. FRIDAY EVENING, MAY 15, 1840. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 15 May 1840
triip cott?t$t** FRIDAY EVENING, MAY 15,1840. THE English Intelligence received is to the 28th December. There is nothing of any great importance talked of but the approaching mar- riage of the Queen. The despatches are, notwithstanding the prog- nostications of the Review, not satisfactory. We have received a letter, dated 13th December, from a gentleman of some influence, from which we extract the following :-" I perceive that the Council are passing resolutions to compensate the distillers. But what is the meaning of the adjournment? I have not yet called at the Treasury to ascertain the fate of the Prohibition Bill. It certainly strikes me as a very strong measure, in a country too which I always thought adapted for the growth of grain." The meaning of the adjournment, reader, was the Issue Rill ! We leave its patrons to conjecture the fate of that measure. WHILE denouncing the gross and infamous falsehoods disseminated throughout Great Britain and Ireland, to the prejudice of o...

SUPREME COURT—SITTINGS IN BANCO. Before both Judges. TUESDAY, MAY 12. Doe d. Lord v. Ma[?]laren. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 15 May 1840
WPREME COURT-SITTINGS IN BANCO. , Before both Judges. , TUESDAY, MAY 12. i Doe d. Lord v. Maclaren. Their Honora, this day, delivered their several opinions in this most important case, as follows . Chief Justice.-This is an action of ejectment brought by the nominal plaintiff, Doe, upon a demise made by Lord. His title is a grant from the crown. Vor twenty j ears before, that land has been in the possession of three different persons, whether with or without the consent of the crown does not appear, but without any rent having been paid. It is insisted, that Lord ought to recover. The verdict passed for the defendant, and his counsel contends that it ought to Bland, because that under the statute of James I., tue crown could not give a grant until it had brought its writ of intrusion and obtained judgment thereon. In support of this, a case is relied on of Doe d. Watt . Morris, in which it was decided, that where a por- tion of waste lands of a manor had been in possession f,r twen...
The Courier. THURSDAY EVENING, MAY 14,1840. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 15 May 1840
THE COURIER &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; THURSDAY EVENING, MAY 14,1840. A SORT of circular letter has been going round the Press, in defence of the appointment of Mr. Thomson. The great burthen of it consists in the Courier not having answered the facts con- tained in that gentleman's pamphlet. There is certainly one merit about this correspondent, namely, that he appears a diligent reader of the Courier, but he seems to have omitted one point quite fatal to the superstructure which he has reared with such elaborate care. He quotes from us - "We have already given our opinion on the facts of the case," and then he trium- phantly demands where? Look, says he, at the &nbsp; mortal pages of Jemmie! Can their gravity be &nbsp; overborne by your levity ? Now, our very attentive reader will find, that in noticing Mr. Thomson's pamphlet, we stated that our impression of...
