Secondly-That the original resolution charged a person therein named, with others, not of piracy, a« first submitted by your Reporter, but still of a capital offence?

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND AUXILIARY BIBLE SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 22 May 1840

VAN DIEMENS LAND AUXILIARY BIBLE SOCIETY. The Twentieth Anniversary of the Van Die men's Land Auxiliary Bible Society was held on Wednesday evening in Trinity Church, His Excellency Sir John Franklin, President, in the Chair. The attendance was much greater than we have witnessed on former occasions ; but there appeared a falling off in the number of speakers. The Report was read by the Rev. F. Miller, in the absence, through protracted indis- position, of his colleague, the Rev. P. Palmer. The first resolution was moved by Dr. Turn- bull, who adverted to the very pleasing and im- portant fact stated in the report, that the British and Foreign Bible Society has promoted the translation of the Scriptures into one hundred and five languages and dialects in which they had never before been translated, and thence in- ferred the incalculable amount of good that must result from such an institution. The Rev. J. Nisbett seconded the resolution, and solicited increased co-operation and enla...

Appalling as is the fact, I am sorry lo say it is to be feared Hutt this diabolical mode of double assassi- nation may have been frequently practised by the bravos which have under their control so large a por- tion of the press of this country. It has recently been found that a number of the Cornwall Chronicle-otic selected, apparently, for its superlative malevolence, from the many numbers ofthat paper which have been devoted to the defamation of the Rev. Dr. Browne has been directed to the aged father of that gentle- man, residing iu Ireland ! Such horrible, hellish malignity, should lead you and all good men to a more determined opposition of I such a pr...

NEW THEORY OF THE HEART. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 22 May 1840

NEW THEORY OF THE HEART. " The heart has been elevated to a place in general esteem to which it is by no means entitled. . . . The heart is nothing more or less than a kind of force pump to propel the blood through the system, some- what like a set of city water-works."-Chambers'* Journal, No. 338. When old Galileo first published his system, A set of old gentlemen strove to resist him ; Like soap-bells their arguments melted in air ; But the dungeon was deep, and the sage immured there ; The doctrine was startling, heretical, new, But Time with his touchstone has proved it all true. l\ly motto is startling, and somewhat like mystery, But its truth 1 shall prove by referring to history. That royal virago, "enthroned by the west," By Raleigh bepraised, and by Essex caressed, Who gave British civilization a shock, Sending one to the Tower, and one to the block ; And, determined her whims and caprices to vary, Embrued her white hands in the blood of poor Alary; Whose matin refection wa...

SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 22 May 1840

SYDNEY. The Sydney papers which we have received by the Lady Rowena, bring ua no later news than to the 23d April. We quoted in our last week's Courier the Sydney prices of grain to the 2d of May. The ships Thomas Bold and Clyde, from London, which arrived at Sydney on the 20th and 21 st April, brought news from England to the 4th December. And it is a singular fact, and worth noticing, that the Will Watch from Calcutta, which arrived in the port of Sydney on the same day as the Clyde, brought English news which had arrived overland to Calcutta, to the 4th of December also. The Eudora, from Hobart Town, put into port at Sydney on the 21st April, to obtain if possible the company of a vessel proceeding to India through the Straits. The Clyde, from Liverpool, arrived at Sydney on the 21 st April, with 250 bounty emigrants, all in good health. Government Appointments,-The following appoint ments arc re-advertised in the last Government Ga- zette ; they are the names of all the gentleme...

THIS MORNING'S POST. (From the Launceston Advertiser.) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 22 May 1840

THIS MORNING'S POST.   (From the Launceston Advertiser.]   Licensed Victuallers. -Two meetings have been held during the past week, for the purpose of forming a Licensed Victuallers' Society, upon a plan similar to the one now in operation at Hobart Town. One of the objects of this society is to raise a fund for the purpose of protecting themselves from the impositions occasionally practised upon them by the constabulary. A second meeting was held at Mr. Suisted's, the Steam Packet Tavern, on Tuesday evening, where a committee was appointed for managing the aflairs of the society, and subscriptions entered into. It was also resolved to establish a Union Brewery, and upwards of 100 shares have been already taken.   On the evening of Friday last, an attempt to escape from the gaol in this town was made by William Dawson now lying under sentence of transportation for   forgery. The prisoner both before and after his con- viction had b...

.fct fit-Courier. THURSD VY EVENING. May 21, 1810. THE QUEEN S HUSBAND. To) be the husband of the Queen of Great Britain would seem the realieation of all that even romance has conceived of human grandeur and earthly happiness. Rank without responsi- bility-station without duties-riches without labour, and, better than all, the chosen partner of a young and beautiful woman, who, distrustful of all around her, selects one breast in which to confide her doubts without fear of treachery, and one judgment from which to ask advice, with the certainty of faith and truth, that an identity of interests only creates. But turn the medal, and what is the reverse ? A gilded puppet, who can perform no action becoming an elevated birth and exalted station ; who can follow no pursuit worthy of ä warrior or a statesman ; ^hose entire im- portance is reflected, and who can avow no opinion {except, perhaps, on an article of dress, a piece of furniture, or a horse,) even though the fate and character ...

THE ARCHBISHOP OF DUBLIN AND MAJOR MACARTHUR ON THE COLONIES IN AUSTRALIA. MAJOR MACARTHUR TO THE ARCHBISHOP OF DUBLIN. ' 10, Carlton House Terrace, London, November, 1839. My Lord,-At a meeting held in Dublin on Satur- day the 2d instant, for promoting emigration to New Zealand, a chaplain of your Grace appears, from its reported proceedings, to have declared that lie wai delegated by your Grace to move a resolution as foreign to ita legitimate objects as it is injurious to the character of the colonies of New South Wales and Van Diempn's Land. The at owed purpose of the resolution, (to use the roost moderate of the expressions of the mover,) '. was to warn the people and respectable inhabitants of the United Kingdom from emigrating to those settlements, because it was vain to think that they could ever become places of respectability." Great will be the sense, in the Australian Colonies, of the public wrong which your Grace has thus caused to be inflicted un two entire communities...

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 22 May 1840

MISCELLANEOUS. The Corporal.-During the American revolution, on officer, not habited in his military costume, was pass- ing by where a small company of soldiers were at work, making some repairs ou a small redoubt. The commander of the little squad was giving orders to those who were under him, relative to a stick of timber, which they were endeavouring to raise to the top of the works. The timber went up hard ; on this account the voice of the little great man was often heard in his regular vociferations of " Heave away I There she goe* ! Heave ho!"&o. The officer before spoked of, stopped his horse when ariived at the place, mid seeing the timber sometimes scarcely move, usked the commander why he did not take hold and render a little aid. The lutter, ap- pearing to be somewhat astonished, turuing to the officer with the pomp of an Emperor, said, " Sir, I um a corporal !" "You are not though, are you ! " said the officer ; " I was not aware of it," and taking oil' his hat ...

The Courier. FRIDAY EVENING, MAY 22, 1840. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Courier and Van Diemen’s Land Gazette — 22 May 1840

The Courier FRIDAY EVENING, May 22, 1840. Wb have had a very long interpretation added to His Excellency's answer to the Petition on Emigration, from which it appears that the sup- position of a scarcity of labour is not the only delusion under which we suffer, but there are other mental hallucinations-other glow-worms of the imagination, which, however brightly they burn, are on that very account the more calcu- lated to deceive and lead us astray. If we go on at the same rate of imaginative speed, con- juring up strange figures to alarm us, the isle will be altogether frightened out of its propriety, and we shall eventually reach in reality that Slough of Despond described in the Pilgrim's Progress. This is " going a-head" the wrong way, and a most Btrange one it is, for the indus- trious and enterprising people of a colony thirty six years' old, with a large revenue and a very large civil establishment, possessing moreover great agricultural resources, which require but energy an...

LOCAL.

Among3t the proposed new acts about to be laid before the Legislative Council, we are much pleased to notice " An Act to consolidate the laws relating to Apprentices and Servants." A proper understanding of the law between master and servant has long been wanted, for the mutual good-will and protection of both parties in this colony. Free emigrants, and those who have obtained their freedom here by servitude, are through ignorance of the just restraint which the law imposes upon them, very apt to neglect their work, to get drunk, to be insolent when spoken to, and to quit their masters' premises without permission-all of which improprieties arc in fact cognizable and punishable by law, either by com- mitment to gaol or by forfeiting a portion of their wages, or by both, according to ...
