Sman Sound. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 1 June 1827
Swan Sound. This newly-discovered and eligible spot for the formation of another British Settle ment in these seas, is situated right across the Island-Continent of Australia, taking a di rection due West from Sydney, and is in latitude 31 South. The whole coast on the West side, of New Holland, from North to South, has vulgarly been considered a bleak, inhospitable, unhealthy, marshy or mountai- nous, or inaccessible country. (From the Australian, April l8.) &nbsp; The Success has returned from Swan Port. The accounts which she brings of the, coun- try, in its vicinity, and to the utmost distance that had been surveyed, are highly flattering and encouraging. The Success arrived off Rotness Island on the 6th ult. Instead of finding this Island the terrestial paiadise re- presented by the Dutch, it is now pronounced as barren and inhospitable. It lies to the westward off the entrance of Swan Sound, and with the horse shoe reefs, which running out a considerable way to sea, ne...

COLONIAL TIMES HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, JUNE 8, 1827. By overland dispatches from Port Dalrym- ple on Monday last, we have intelligence of the arrival of the ship Admiral Cockburn at that place, from Port Jackson, together with Sydney Papers to the 18th ultimo. By them we learn with feejings of mingled regret and indignation, that another decided and deadly blow has been levelled by the Government of the elder Colony at the Liberty of the Press. To be brief, an Act of Council has been passed by the Governor there, with the advice of the Legislative Council, lev} inga St \mp Duty of'Four-pence sterling on every sheet or other piece of paper used for printing a newspaper, under the pretence of raising a fund "for defraying the charge of printing the Public Acts, &lt;5t." Our thoughts-our re- flections-our ideas-our indignant feelings rush with such an impetuous torrent on our btain, that we are almost at a loss where to begin, or what to say first.

Letters to the Editor. Sir,-I do not know whether the fault lies with your Correspondent, or your Composi- tor ; but in your Paper of last week, I was much surprised to see a most glaring error.-? It is contained in the Letter, signed " A Launceston Dealer," wherein he states, that English-made slops pay an ad valorem duty, and not only so, but that they pay it here aftet- paying it at Sydney, and should the ar- ticles be again shipped to Launceston, that it is again (i. e.) a third time paid there, or words to that effect. Sow, Mr. Editor, this is as faldea statement of the case as could be written, which you would have seen had yoçi referred to. the " Tasmanian Pocket Alma- nack."-The ad valorem duty of 5 percent, is only exacted on foreign goods, and all of English manufacture come into the Colony duty free. Therefore, slops do not ply any duty, either at Sydney, at Hobart Town, or Launceston-the only charge being the -freight.-1 am, Sir, vours. &c. A HOBART TOWN DEALER L...

[vrÓm a lvusceston correspondent.] * The Court of Requests opened here on Thurs- day, with 289 causes-last Term 287. A curious decision was given on the first day. A Lawyer sent a quantity of smutty-wheat to a windmill to be ground; and, after leaving it with the Miller for several months, summoned him for the price of the wheat and the bag*, and that at the price of good wheat, although he had saddled the Miller with the storeage fur several months. *' He never sent to take it away jiblie preferred suing for cash," In- stead of sending -/or his flour, as the wheat had fallen in price. He obtained a verdict for the fqll, price of his. wheat; and also for a note of hand, which had not been presented, but was lost, whilst the Miller, although he f»roved his set-off, by witnesses, was only al- > owed one-third of hi* bill ; and the Law Îer, who did not bring one witness to prove is demand, got the whole amount sued for. The second day Mr. MuLGiuxt«.at alone, and gave very general, s...

dssmamau íZxtv&ttü. From the Gazette. Thetendersof wheat accepted by the Com- missariat last week are, we understand, from 5s. to 5s. Gd. sterling a bushel. We look upon this, at a time when we conceive the supply itself is not immediately wanted, as a timely and fostering measure, calculated to assist the industrious and struggling set- tlers. Seventeen thousand bushels, or ubout £4500, besides the" tenders for the out-sta- tions, to be accepted on Tuesday, must con- siderably encourage the efforts of the farmer. General Darling has enacted that the Bank of Australia may sue and be sued iu the name of the Managing Director. s A deputation from the Mechanics' Institu- tion, waited yesterday on the Lieutenant Governor. The Gentlemen present availed themselves of the opportunity to explain the views and objects of the Society generally, of which His Excellency was pleased to ap- prove, and promised so laudable an Institu- tion every support and patronage iu his power.

To tke Editor of ike Colonial Times. Si quid novisti rectíus istis, ' Cwiididus imperti, si non Jus, utore mccum.] Su*h, Mr. Editor,' waa the feeling with which I sent you the statement of the races at Ross Bridge, leaving it entirely to your judgment to print it, or if any other Gentle- man had furnished an"account, to exclude my papei, and take that you thought best. 1 admit my account was hurried, as I was de tained in the country longer than I expected by accidents ; but, as I personally informed you on my arrival in town, I h.id submitted it to a Gentleman for perusal, whose sporting knowledge is indisputable, and he gave his testimony to its being correct. Having sent it to your office, I thought but little more aliout it. until in your paper of the 18th May, I saw a letter, signed "Correcteur," which I presume that person calls a critique upon the subject.

®mtvalian ISxttiictô. From the Australian. The Alfred, belonging to the house of Jones and Walker, on her late whaling trip, was provided with lines made from New Zealand flax, and others of European manufacture. The superior tenacity of the former was very clearly and satisfactorily proved j all the Eu- ropean lines having snapped asunder ; whilst those spun from the phot mium tenax, or New Zealand flax, stood the. heaviest strain with- out breaking or giving way in a single strand. Towards the latter part of the voyage, the latter became the sole dependence-they « ithstood the entire voyage, and have been biought backneaily unimpaired. this is a gratifying fact, and the certainty of it, it's to be hoped, will afford a stimulus to the culti- vation of that valuable plant, the phormiuin tena*.

Colonial Times. HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, JUNE 15,1827. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 15 June 1827
Colonial Times. HOBART TOWN. FRIDAY, JUNE 15, 1827. We have put our Paper in mourning again this week, in consequence of the official &nbsp; intelligence respecting the lamented death of His Royal Highness the Duke of York having just been received in the Colony, via New South Wales. It is now upwards of twenty-three years since the Colony of Van Diemen's Land was first settled by the English. During that period the population has increased to nearly 16,000. Out of this number, we may say that there is a considerable portion already arrived to the years of maturity, and a great number more fast growing up. An emigrant, however large his possessions, however great an interest he may take in the Colony, can never have that affection for it, that he has for his native land. There is something in the term native land, peculiarly gratifying to every man. The soil of one's nativity &nbsp; surpasses in the imagination every other &nbsp; country on the face of ...
