Newcastle Courant February 15th 1839. The Hand-Book for Australian Emigrants. — “We have read not a few publications on the same subject; but there is no previous publication, so far as we know, that contains so full, ample, extended, and minute an account as ‘the Hand-Book.’ The author has no crotchets of his own to support. He seems to have read, and to have courted verbal or written information with a single eye to truth. We never read a book more free from bias or prejudice of any kind or more determined to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.
