Colonial Times. HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, MAY ll, 1827. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 11 May 1827

HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, MAY 11, 1827 We should be wanting in our duty, if we failed to congratulate our readers, the Go- vernment, and the Public in general, on the present very tranquil state of the Colony. - This circumstance gives us the most heartfelt satisfaction, and it is with alacrity we enter   upon the subject, on which we have a few remarks to offer. On the arrival of Lieute-   nant Governor Authur in April 1824, the Colony was in a very quiet and peaceable   state, without a bush-ranger. But soon after- wards, those misguided men, whose crimes have been expiated by their lives, unfortu- nately escaped in a boat from the penal Set tlement, at Macquarie Harbour. This law- less banditti soon spread terror throughout the Colony - plundering and murdering all who came in their way. For a while the ener- gies of the Government slept - and no efficient steps-were taken for the prevention of the evil. At this time, Colonel ARTHUR could however...

SUPREME COURT THE KING, on the prosecution, of Dr TYTLER, - against Captain DILLON             This case, which has occupied, the atten-   tion of the Court for four days, and excited considerable interest,was for an assault and battery committed by the defendant on Dr. Tytler, on the 28th February, last, and for   confining him in prison up to the time of the arrival of the Research in the Derwent, on the 6th of April last.   The facts which were proved by the exa- mination of the prosecutor's witnesses, were as follows:-         Captain Dillon having acquired some infor- mation at the Malacoli Islands respecting the fate of Count La Perouse communicated the   particulars of his discoveries to the Supreme Government of Bengal, in the month of Oc- tober last.

Be La Perouse. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 11 May 1827

De La Perouse. So much has lately been said, and so much anxiety has been felt, for the fate of this great French navigator, that we are inclined to believe the interest is considerable on the public mind in every thing relating to him. We have therefore the pleasure this week to present our Readers with a correct engra- ving of the cipher on the silver sword-guard found by Martin Bouchert, on the Malicolo Islands, and now on board the Research cruizer, fitted out by the H.E. I. Company, at an expense of £15,000 for the purpose of searching but the fate of the unfortunate French Count who has never been heard of since the year 1788, when he left the coast of Van Diemen's Land in the Boussole frigate, accompanied by the L'Astrolabe frigate, Cap- tain De L'Angle, whose fate also, with that of the vessel he commanded, and his illus- trious companion, still remains wrapped in a     cloud of mystery.   Jean Fran-cots Galoupe De La Pe-rouse Frere Mac...

Nothing can equal our mortification, at re- ceiving, week after week, complaints fiomour Country Subscriber, respecting the non-deli- very of their papers-not only on our own ac- count', but on that of our Readeis, who are thereby disappointed of their news, and put to exp'e'nse of postage and trouble of wiiting to Us and the Postmaster, their complaints. We have been informed,1 that, it is the practice of some of the Messengers to detain' a paper every week from some Subscriber or other.

Co-®*' Stóclier; ÏS0&. i^l.-*ît. or. Sir,-When I addressed you last weeK, it was-under the idea of calling your attention to some of the wants of this side of the Is- land, as 1 then purposed, from time to time, to lay before you the true state of things in this place. I am well aware that very little is requisite to induce you to give your voice for such measures as may be most expedient for our present relief, and without further premise, I shall therefore call your attention to the present state of our Police. Thisestab lishment, to whose immediate care not only our property but our lives are entrusted, is j'C composed of a Chief Constable, three Chief District Constables, and several Petty Con- stables. To these men we commit ourselves by day and by night, aud it is therefore very desirable that they should be properly se- lected and paid.v Our Chief Constable is new- ly appointed, but appears a very sensible man, and will no doubt use his utmost ex- ertions for the prot...

Letter to the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 18 May 1827

íítucv to ti)t ISötto*. Sut,-I read the account of the Ross Races in your Panei of the 13th ult. with partial pleasure, tor while I was pleased willi the excellent races which it would appear had been run, the patchwork account of them is harsh ayd grating, and most unsuited to the narration ot so elegant a sport as the rival ship of the noblest animal under the controul of man, and surely when so many veterans of the turf appear in the list, a properly got up account might have been furnished. Some all-sufficient- would-be-sporting-man has been lucklessly endeavouring to snatch the palms of literary victory Irom one who would have won, but though unacquainted with the no- menclature of the turf, he might have shewn some of the scholarship of the drawing-room, and not paid such a bad compliment to our Tasmanian fair, as to remind them of the washing-tub when they were beautifying and enlivening the gay scene he was attempt ing to describe; lor he must certainly allude to some labour...

Charles Thomas Bradshaw, a free man, Tcsiding ata house near the Barrack-hill, was indicted for violently assaulting a prisoner .named William Murphy, and robbing him .of ^ 33s. in silver. It appeared, that the prisoner Bradshaw did a little in the grog way on the sly ; that the prosecutor had gone to his house, on the day of the robbery, Sunday the 8th of April ; and owing Brad- shaw something for spirits previously, a dis- pute arose between them as to the amoutitof the debt ; when the prisoner threw him down, and with the assistance of several other petsons then present, robbed him of the «louey in question, while they beat and kicked him most severely. The prosecutor admitted that he was a little intoxicated ?when he entered the house, but knew per- fec...

Trial of Mr. Bent. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 18 May 1827

Trial of Mr. Bent. In the Supreme Court, on Wednesday last, the trial the King v. Bent, the Proprietor of the Colonial Times, for two alleged libels on the Lieutenant Governor, published in that Journal of the 2d of February last, came on. The articles alluded to as libellous are - a pa- ragraph, stating by misconception, that Mr. Jocelyn Thomas, as a Public Officer, had re- ceived a special order to turn 1000 bushels of wheat into the Commissariat Stores -at Launceston, at 6s. 6d. per bushel ; and the other an article on head-money, copied in the same paper without any comment, from The Australian. It will be seen by reference to the Colonial Times of the following week, that the statement, respecting the wheat was contradicted, by a communicant, who stated that Mr. Thomas had not a special order, but that he turned in by tender 1000 bush- els of wheat, at 5s. 6d. only. On the trial, Mr. Thomas gave similar testimony, which was corroborated by Mr. Commissary Moodie, who further sta...

Police News. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 18 May 1827

Police News. Phillis Jones, holding a Ticket of Leave, was summoned at the instance of the Rev. Mr.   Bedford, charged with immoral conduct, in     cohabiting with one R. Woodrow. It appeared that Mrs. Jones was formerly assigned servant to Dr. Scott, at whose recommendation and that of Mrs. Scott, the late Lieutenant   Governor Sorell had been pleased to grant her   a Ticket of Leave. The present investigation excited considerable interest; inasmuch as   Mrs. Jones is employed by several of the most respectable ladies of Hobart Town, as   a nurse, who, from her general good character and conduct in such employ, had affixed their signatures to a petition for a Conditional   Pardon, which, being referred by the     Lieutenant Governor to Mr. Bedford, the   Rev. Gentleman considered it his duty to prefer prefer the present complaint. Mr. Bedford had been ap...

Colonial Times. HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, MAY 18, 1827. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 18 May 1827

HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, MAY l8, 1827. We last week adverted to the subject of re- warding Crown prisoners with Emancipa- tions and Free Pardons, for good and lau- dable conduct, in the service, or for the pro- tection, ofGovernmentand the People, either from bush-rangers or others. We compared the conduct of His'Excellenuy Lieutenant Governor Arthur,-*rjth that of Lieutenant General Darling, on such occasions, and were very happy to lind the issue of our en- quiries much in favour of Colonel Authur, inasmuch as experience has proved that he has always given an Emancipation or a Free Pardon, as a reward for actions which only obtain a Ticket of Leave, in the elder Colony. This we most highly commend, and consider it as a shining star "iii the escutcheon of our present Lieutenant Governor, who, for this and similar liberal policy, shall never want our meed of praise, for we are not opposed to Government-we are only opposed to its abuses, But all this is extraneous and irre lavent to what...

Distillation. (From the Scotsman.) [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 25 May 1827

Stótiltottoit» (.From the Scotsman.) A report has been put in circulation, m as ti probably by interested parties, that the use of| grain in the distilleries is to be stopped, and! sugar eraploved. For various reasons, we do! not believe that Ministers have the slightest in-f tention of making such an alteration.-First, it] is to be obsei.ved, that the labouring classes inl the three kingdoms consume very little bailey! in solid food ; and as any sudden change inl men's habils is painful, it follows that barley! must not only be low, but very low, in price,! before it could come much into use for bread,! and of course this would be one of the least! eligible modes of giving relief to these classes/ In the second place, the opening of the ports! is the remedy to which we know Ministers! looked, if piices should be too high, or if the! distress should continue ; and they must be sol much, the more disposed to abide by this plan,! as tiie agriculturists would probably be almost! as ave...
