The three Great powers of the United Kingdom, Kingdom of France, and the Russian Empire have finally agreed upon a protocol to create an independent Greek state, carved from the Ottoman Empire, under their joint protection. The three Powers concluded the Protocols on 3 February 1830.

The Government of the United Kingdom announced that one ship, the Katherine Stewart Forbes has arrived in the Crown Colony of New South Wales with her cargo of 199 male convicts to serve out their sentence for crimes against the Crown.

On the same note it was announced that the ship, the Eliza III arrived in Van Diemen's Land with her cargo of 115 female convicts.

The debate raged on between the Army, Navy and the King of Sardinia's Treasury Minister over finding the funds for additional ships, artillery, and mounted troops. While the King has not spoken publicly on the matter, it was well-known in the Sardinian court that he considers the navy incapable of effective pirate suppression. And that the army lacks the capability to do more then man the walls of their grand cities.

General Antonio Bertolucci was heard complaining that any increase in banditry would stretch the Kingdom's available troops beyond the breaking point, and cause a potentially ugly diplomatic incident as trade is disrupted, along with the loss of additional revenue to the crown from the sudden disruptions.

In other news, the Kingdom has reported that the keel for another merchant ship has been laid. Along with the fact the King has ordered the clearing and leveling of some of the more common routes of trade between towns inside of the Kingdom. The roads are expected to be finished by early spring.

The Transportation Minister for the Kingdom of Sardinia-Piedmont has announced that additional roadways will be built to improve internal trade. The King was reported to have said in his court that, "Far too many towns and villages are isolated from the rest of the kingdom by badly kept trails and roadways that are maintained sporadically at best. We need to change this."

It remains to be seen just how spending money on nonproductive dirt tracks can benefit the kingdom, but this reporter is willing to wait and see what transpires before offering my opinion.

Well, keep your eyes peeled, there is a bit more, in time, to do with the LDS, including the Mountain Meadows massacre.  :wink:

Just so long as you don't forgot Haun's Mill or the winter scourging of Nauvoo, or the army's depredations of the Utah saints during that time period it's a fair cop. Mountain Meadows was a sad chapter in our history but it was almost inevitable given the nature of what had happened before the fact that among the attackers there were many that believed there were Missouri mobbers among those in the traveling wagon train. I don't know if there's any truth to that belief, and it shouldn't have mattered, but it did and it happened.

I'll leave it at that.

Sorry Thor, didn't mean to imply you were intentionally being biased. I really am enjoying the news.

And yes, Executive Order 44 was a dark day. The fact that it took until 1976 to get it rescinded is probably why a large portion of Utah LDS still don't like Missourians.

The threat of Deseret forming is what prompted the president to send troops to Utah I believe. Their arrival is what prompted Utah to seek statehood instead. I think playing the nation of Desert would be alot of fun, but I don't think it would ever have had a chance to survive. The early failure of trying to develop an iron industry by the saints is more the reason than outside pressure as to why they would fail to develop a lasting nation.

Np my friend. My love of history is so great, to try and bias anything is anathema to me.  :shock:

Yep, in 1847 the Mormons proposed that their territory be admitted to the Union as the State of Deseret, but Congress only went so far as to make it a Territory. And to mollify the local folks Brigham Young was appointed as Territorial Governor. It was when Buchanan tried to remove Young in 1857, over the polygamy issue, that the "Utah War" broke out. But, fortunately, cooler minds prevailed and actual conflict averted.  8)
