What is the meaning of, or a synonym for, the expression “a course of exertion” in the phrase: The newcomers, at present, seem rather disposed to settle down to the easy lives of their neighbors, than to pursue a course of exertion which has once proved unsuccessful.

There is no need to rephrase it. It means exactly what it says. As to the exact course of exertion they are referring to, I wouldn't know. Perhaps you will have to read further.
