NIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 3 December 1824

NIGHT. Night is the 'time for rest, How, sweet when labours close, *To gather round an aching breast The curtain of repose Stretch the tired limbs, and lay the head Upon our own delightful bed ! Night is the time for dreams The gay romance of life, iWhen tiuth that is, and tiuth that seems Blend in fantastic strife, Ah ! visions less beguiling far Than vv aking dreams by daj light are Î Night is the time for toil * To plough the «lassie field : Intent lo find the buried spoil it? wealthy furious yield ; Till all is our's that ages taught, That poets sang,01 heroes wiought! Night is Ihe time to weep To wet with unseen tears Those graves of memory, where sleep The joys of other years; Hopes tljat were angels in their birth, But finish'd young, like things of earth I Night i$ the time to watch-? í On ocean's dark expanse, (To hail the pleiades or catch The full Moon's eai liest glance, . That brings into the home sick mindi !AH(we have lov'd and left behind? j Night is the time for car...

DECEMBER. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 3 December 1824

DECEMBER. This month was under the protection of Vesta. The flatterers of the detest- able Commodus'gave it the name of Ama'zonius, in compliment to a mistress of the emperor, whom he, had caused to b% painted jn the dress of an Amazon. But; this name was abolished after his death. This month was almost entirely devoted to sports and pleasure, and, during-its continuance, games of chance, which were forbidden at other times, were allowed to be played. Romulus gave thirty days to tins month, which Numa reduced to twenty-nine; but the number was increased to thirty-one, by Julius Caesar« The Festum Fortunze Muliebris or festival of female fortune, was celebra- ted on the Hist ef the month, in memory of a war having ceased on that day. Sa- crifices were offered, on the fourth, to Minerva and Neptune. The Faunalia took place on the following day. This feast was devoted to Faunus, to whom a he goat was sacrificed, and libations of wine were made. This day was a day of feasting, merriment...

THE SUPREME COURT, OF VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 3 December 1824

THE SUPREME COURT, OF VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. SATURDAY. -- William Steers stood charg- ed, with feloniously having stolen, on the 14th of September last, at Orielton, ten bushels of barley, then and there belonging to Edward. Lord, Esq. Verdict -- Not Guilty.   James Matthews, Lawrence Holden, and Susan Mercy Smith were then araigned on an indictment, charging the first named prisoner as the perpetrator of, and the other two as aiders aud abettors in, in a rape on the body of Mary Ann Herbert. The ATTORNEY-GENERAL, in opening his case for the prosecution, described it as one of peculiar barbarity. The defenceless form which had been defiled was that of an infant, aged but 10 years and two months, who had been left under the parti- cular protection of the female prisoner; and she, O ! degradation to her sex, had not only deserted her trust, but actually pandered to the ravisher. The Learned Gentleman at some length displayed the heinous eefects ot such base crimes as those im...

Governor Macquarie's Death. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 3 December 1824

Governor Macquarie's Death. General MACQUARIE, late Gover- nor and Commander in Chief of New South Wales and its Dependencies, de- parted this life on the 1st of July last, after a short illness, at St. James's. Ill, very ill, should we deserve, to participate in the blessings which were diffused throughout these Colonies, by the late Governor in Chief, if we could hear of his death without filial emotion, or record it without sentiments of pa- triotic homage. To sublime concep- tions of his duty he united peculiar firmness in performing it. His enthu- siasm for the general weal was chastely tempered by his statesman-like discrimi- nation. On all occasions, when interests were clashing and prejudices mingling — when the proud asked for sanction,   and the meek craved protection — when a nod from the Governor would have glided like a spell and confirmed either amity or feuds — his spirit was active in defence of those, who were weeping exiles from the happy lands where t...

To the Editor of the Hobart Town Gazette. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 10 December 1824

To the Editor of the Hobart Town Gazette. SlR, -As the Organ lately subscribed for by the Inhabitants of Hobart Town for St. David's Church is expected by an early arrival, it may not be improper for the Subscribers to take the following queries into consideration-: 1. Whose property is the Organ?   2. Who has the appointment of an   Organist ? 3. If the Subscribers have the ap- pointment (which, I think, no one can deny), what steps are most suitable to assert their right ? I know well that the Gentleman al- ready spoken of as Organist is every way fitted for the employment, and in every respect unexceptionable; but if' the Subscribers take no steps, they will allow their property to be considered as public property, and enable some indi-, vidual to assume a patronage, to which, until bestowed by the Subscribers, he has no legal claim. Yours, &c. NADOC.

Hobart Town Gazette. FRIDAY, DECEMBER 10. Sitting Magistrate—G. F. Read, Esq. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 10 December 1824

Hobart Town Gazette. FRIPAY, DECEMBER 10. /Sitting Magistrate-r,G. F. Read, Esq. The hour that gives existence in a British Colony to a Free Press, re- quires not the aid of our feeble pen to extol its worth, or magnify its impor- tance. That hour is pregnant with the embrio virtues of countless worthies yet unborn. And those who love light ra- ther, than daikness, must worship it as the dawn of mental glory. These re- marks have been excited by a new journal published at Sydney, wTith an avowal of independence ; and by Sir THOMAS BRISBANE'S magnanimity in emancipating the Gazette of New South Wales from the official manacles of a Censorship. Australia may indeed re- joice !-We fraternally congratulate her! -we view her a« high and mighty even amongst nations now !-but may she remember that liberty is chaste and dis- dains licentiousness ; that power begets responsibility ; that with unlimited means ' of doing ill, she should combine inde- finite aspirations to impart good ; and tha...

SYDNEY INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 17 December 1824

SYDNEY INTELLIGENCE. The Court of Requests has its advan- tages, butjlike other mstitutionsj possesses its disadvantages. The creditor has a more simple remedy than formerly against the debtor, while the latter has the advan- tage of the former-he pays no profes- sional costs. A shopkeeper, gives credit to an individual for the ,sum ot ¿lu« When pay-day arrives, he finds it npces sery to resort tolcompulsion ; m which, case a Solicitor is employed, whom the cre- ditor has to pay out of his own pocket, in- dependent of all the inconvenience com- ing upon him by the debtor's defalcation. The process is certainly a summary one, but we think, in justice to those who give credit, that the party failing to make good his obligation, should at least be con- strained to pay the retention of the Soli- citor, in addition to the other trivial ex- penses.

Co $u&0trï1ftr*t The Hobart Town Gazette, which has now leen established nearly ten years, will, at the commencement of the ensuing year, maka its appearance on a somewhat taryer scale, printed with a small new type, and on su- perior sti any paper.

To the Editor of the Hobart Town Gazette. SIR,- The recompense of honest labour should be held sacred, and those who   plant the vine should gather the vintage. I have no notion of seeing might with im- punity trample on right. I see no rea- son why the well earned honey of a Bee should be swallowed by a Drone. And I am indignant whenever an attempt is made to suborn influence in behalf of those who, under the masque of patrio- tism, would invalidate their neighbour's credit, abstract his resources, and mono- polize his dues. These observations, Sir, warm though they are, you and the liberal portion of your Readers will consider to be just, when I mention that recent efforts have been privately made for the purpose of removing to Morris's the business now most deservedly enjoyed by Mr. Austin, as a ferry master, on a pretext that the Public would thereby be convenienc ed!
