Clerical Debits. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 19 August 1825

Clerical Devils. Extract of a letter from Barcelona, dated June 19, 1824:—A singular occurrence, has taken place here, in a village called Artes, near Hostalrich, about twelve leagues from Barcelona. A Constitutionalist being at the point of death, his brother called on the Cu- rate, and requested of him to come and ad- minister the Sacrament. The Curate re- fused, saying—"Your brother is a Constitu-   tionalist, that is to say a villain, an impious wretch; an enemy to God and man—he is   damned without mercy, and it is therefore useless for me to confess him!" "But who     told you that my brother was damned?" "Who told me ?" replied the Curate, "why     God himself!" "What," cried the aston-   ished Spaniard, "God has spoken to you!"     "Yes," answered the Curate with assurance;     "God spoke to me during the sacrifice of the &nbs...

Poetrp. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 19 August 1825

Poetry.   The following little National Apostrophe   was transmitted to us by a friend. We rea- dily insert it, entering fully into the feelings it expresses. "In far distant climes, when the tear gushes   o'er For home, love and friendship, that charm us no more,   Oh, what on the Exile's dark sorrows can shine, Like the rapture that glows at the songs of langsyne. "The music of Scotia is sweet 'midst the   scene;   But ah! could you hear it when sees roll be-   tween, 'Tis then, and then only, the soul can divine The magic that dwells in the songs of langsyne. "The spirit, when torn from earth's objects of   love, Loses all its regrets in the chorus above,— So in exile we cannot but cease to repine. When it hallows with extacy songs of lang- syne."

Port Dalrpmple Ni[?]s. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 19 August 1825

Port Dalrymple News A survey has lately been taken by a Gen- tleman named Florance from the Cataract to Launceston, a distance of two miles, to ascer- tain the fall, in order to supply the town with water, which the Inhabitants have now to carry from thence. It was ascertained, that there would be water sufficient to turn three mills, besides supplying the town; but that   this much-required undertaking would cost at the least £2,000. We are credibly inform- ed, that if the Government will afford some asssistance, the Inhabitants will cheerfully subscribe £1000 towards defraying the ex- pence which may be incurred in accomplish- ing the task. After conveying the water by a small stream into the town, the plan in- tended lo furnish each house with water, is, by laying down wooden pipes through the streets. The new Church is getting on rapidly. The whole of the prisoners, committed for trial, broke out of the Launceston Gaol a few days ago; but owing to the immediate info...

Original tffon'gffjpougiucg To the EDITOR of 'THE COLONIAL TIMES.' [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 19 August 1825

Original Correspondence To the Editor of 'The Colonial Times.' Sir,—Your Readers may recollect, that   some time ago, Messrs. Hone and Kemp were, with Mr. Bedford, appointed to the manage- ment of the concerns of St. David's Church, in this town. The Inhabitants here trusted that from thence forward these Gentlemen, thus having undertaken the office of Church War- dens, would have carefully attended to their duties, and particularly to the expenditure of the produce of Pew Rents, the regulation of Seats, &c. It is not without astonishment then, that I have heard that these Church- wardens have decided upon furnishing cer- tain pews with scarlet cushions. I know not whether they mean to incur this expence out of their own pockets; if so, the Public have nothing to say about it. I am satisfied however, that, as at Sydney, the Pew of the Colonial Chaplain, Mr. Marsden, is perfectly nnadorned, that of course the pomps and vanities of this wicked world would be &...

To the EDITOR of the COLONIAL TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 19 August 1825

To the Editor of the Colonial Times. Sir,—I am just returned from an excursion in the country; and I should fearlessly state my   opinion of men and measures, were I not afraid or being arrested by Ex-Efficio Informations, which appear now to be the order of the day. However, I cannot refrain from saying, that the prisoners upon the roads in the in- terior appear to be under no controul; nor   is the order of the Lieutenant Governor car-   ried into effect, that in every hut where twenty men are assembled, there should be an Overseer.—It certainly would be desirable   that an efficient Officer should visit these Road Parties once a week, and make a writ- ten Report to the Engineer of Hobart Town, of their progress, condition as to food, &c. The worst is that for want of being pro- perly looked after, they are become a law- less banditti, and are robbing the industrious Settler in every direction. The communication between L...

Newspapers, [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 19 August 1825

Newspapers. The following statement of the London Press may not be wholly uninteresting to our Readers. The facts it contains are col- lected from sources of undoubted authority, and may be depended upon. It affords astonishing proofs of the wonderful results of literary labour. It is not an extreme cal- culation to state, that upon the 8 Morning and 6 Evening London Newspapers, there are at least 120 Literary Gentlemen employ- ed, receiving weekly salaries, averaging £600 per annum each. If to these, be added about 40 Sunday and alternate Day News- papers, we may estimate the weekly remu- neration for regular literary services (inde- pendent of a variety of others separately paid for), at upwards of £1000 per week. If to this we add the regular wages of Printers and others, we may take the weekly sala- ries of the London Newspapers at £2500. To this may be added at least £1500 weekly   for contingent expences, exclusive of stamps and paper. The Daily Morning and Evenin...

(From the Literary Gazette.) [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 19 August 1825

(From the Literary Gazette.)   The Life of an Editor—Then           there is another species of correspondents, who under the pretence of giving advice, are the most abominable, saucy and impudent fellows in the world, and who modestly give their crude suggestions as infallible axioms, which if you do not obey, you must lose their invaluable friendship and support. Thus, one will tell you, "your paper in in-   suppportably dull, and he can't read it unless it contains an account of all the prize fights, and other occurrences in the sporting world;"   another declares that "if you pollute your   columns with such trash, he will cease to take in your journal." One correspondent thinks your paper of too literary a cast, and wishes you to give a little more variety, and now and then to pop in a few remarkable and horrid accidents—or a bloody murder: "those   ...

Colonial Times. HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, AUGUST 19, 1825. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 19 August 1825

Colonial Times. HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, AUGUST 19, 1825. The Hobart Town Gazette, and Van Diemen's Land Advertiser, which for nearly ten years has been the only vehicle of communication in this Colony, is now no more! In our last we   briefly stated the causes by which we have been induced to present our Journal to our   Readers under another designation. The pira- tical assumption of our late title, by the Go- vernment Printers, would have been of little consequence to us, because where there is a competition, each party must (as far as the public patronage is concerned) prosper or de- cline, as he may fairly deserve. The public judgment, if left to itself, is always accurate. He who merits the reward, will always obtain it. We therefore felt no resentment at the mere pirating our designation; because we were aware that such, if it was unaccompanied with other interferences, could do us no inju- ry. But not so. Our letters have been inter- cepted, as appeared...

Original Correspondence. To the EDITOR of 'THE COLONIAL TIMES.' [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 26 August 1825

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of 'The Colonial Times.'         Sir,—I am an admirer of Colonel Sorell's Admnistration; and I was particularly de-     lighted at hearing from the mouth of his suc-   cessor, that "His Majesty's Government   highly approved of it in every particular, and that he should make it the model of his own." I wish to ask, through the medium of your   truly independent Journal, to what the fol- lowing passage in the Government News- paper of last week alludes:—"I did hope   that when better men and better times had succeeded to the bed of both, under which our Island has to long moraily suf- fered, a popular medium, such as I have ad- verted to, would be created for diffusing through the Colony, clouded as it is with ignorance and crime, the rays of knowledge   and cheerfulness."—I do not wish to hastily judge o...

SYDNEY INTELLIGENCE. [PRIVATE CORRESPONDENCE.] Sydeny, 21 st July, 1825. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 26 August 1825

SYDNEY INTELLIGENCE. [PIUVATE COltltESPONDfcVCF.] Sydney, 21st July, 1825.   The ship Phoenix, Captain Dixon, left this port the day after the Elizabeth ; but return- ed yesterday, in consequence of having suf- fered material damage in a gale of wind, which she unfortunately encountered about 36 hours after leaving this port. Her quarter-gallies were stove in-two boats were washed away -her stern-post injured so much as to cause her to leak considerably-she is otherwise ve- ry much damaged.-She had at one time six feet water in her hold. Capt. D. states, that he fears he shall be compelled to discharge a great portion of the cargo, in order to repair the damages. She was five days in getting inside the heads, owing to contrary winds.   < Ttie whaling &hip, Vansittart, also arrived here yesrerdaj, (with the crew of the Mary, wjhaler, lately wrecked) with 2,000 barrels of 'sperm oil on board.

[?] [FROM THE AUSTRALIAN] [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 26 August 1825

aasuBaaav From the Australian ifr? The publication of the New Journal at Ho- bart Town, with all its concomitant circum- stances, is one of those equivocal acts which are adopted in a moment oi imprudence, and commonly with precipitancy ; which few per- sons can excuse, which none feel disposed to justify, and of which the promoters common- ly on reflection become heaitily ashamed. Jbven those whose hearts are oveiflowing with the milk of human ^kindness, whose pbiUn throphy is ever leady to attribute to a good motive the most ambitious conduct, must he- sitate to approve of an act fiaught with ap- parent wrong at least, and pregnant with in- justice. At rieavl Ciuarters there can prevail but one opinion -one feeling-neither of which need we describe. The legal Gentlemen of Hobart Town, or such of them as are connected with this u ollicial" Journal, might have taken the paius to ascertain that the Title of a newspaper is as sacrrd as the title to Land, and that the Lopylight of the ...

Colonial Times. HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, AUGUST 26, 1825. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 26 August 1825

Colonial Times. HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, AUGUST 26, 1825. It is remarkable, that although there is a Newspaper here, established and published by the Authority of the Government, the writers of which are paid a large salary out the Taxes (on what account no man can understand), yet the task of attempting to justify the measures of the Administration is left almost entirely to the Sydney Gazette. The persons then who conduct the Govern- ment Newspaper here, are evidently not considered worthy of the trust, or equal to the task. Thus when any measure is in contemplation, we may be satisfied that it is really determined upon, when we find a semi-official announcement in the Sydney Gazette. So it is, as to the removal of the Seat of Government to Brighton; and the   publication of the Letters of His Honor the Lieutenant Governor and Mr. Hone, on the subject of the charges made against the resident Assistant Chaplain, the Rev. Mr. Bedford. These latter documents appear with long...

LIBEL CASE. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 26 August 1825

LIBEL CASE. We make the following extract from the Sydney Gazette of the 7th of July, the Official Organ of Government. We make this extract with great pleasure, because the source from which we take it gives it additional value. We commend it to the earnest consideration of our Readers in general, and to the Military Gentlemen, of whom our Juries are composed, in particular. Surely it will be admitted that the language applied in this libel to the Mar- quis of Wellesley, the Lord Lieutenant of Ire- land, and which was argued successfully by the Counsel to be within the fair range of news- paper controversy, and which a Jury of twelve freeholders refused to find libellous, is rather different to merely applying the words "non- descript job," to an appointment which only a few short months alter its creation has been suppressed by its very makers, and may there- fore be taken to be of acknowledged useless ness. We repeat our earnest request, that our   Military Jurymen w...

[FROM THE SYUNEY GAZETTE.] [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 26 August 1825

(FROM THE SYDNEY GAZETTE) The Rev. Mr. Bedford. — Last week we promised to present our Readers with the sight of some Official Documents, in connex- ion with our defensive article of the Rev. Mr. Bedfoid, of Van Diemen's Land, which was inserted in the previous Paper. We now hasten to fulfil our promise, to which we feel urged by the renewed attacks made on that Government no longer ago than Thurs- day last. "Documentary intelligence" is at   all times acceptable, as it sets the most dis- cordant transactions at rest, while it fails not to convince the most bigotted of the wrong impressions that may be entertained to the prejudice, if not the total ruin, of those in- dividuals who perchance happen to be viru- lently calumniated.
