Moodie, Esq. £f HOLIDAY AT THE BANK TO-MORROW. 1 1 Our Readers will perceive, that in another column we quote, from the Austra lian, a few rather interesting facts relative to Edwards, the Notary, whose banish- ment from the Cape of Good Hope to Port Macquarie, for a libel on Lord C. SOMERSET, we before briefly noticed. And, although even yet we remain unacquainted with the precise aspect of the offence, we must injustice to our own confirmed and unalterable loyalty assert, that whoever will strive by undue means to cloud the star of illustrious ránk, and to pour the bitterness of undeserved reproach on the noble Representative of Royalty, is a monster whom legal vengeance may righteously extirpate! Detraction is in- deed, as a vice, peculiarly cruel, coward like, and abhorrent. Its every feature is marked with satanic hideousness. Like a snake, it bas...

Original Lines, ON THE EXIT OF THE YEAR, 1824. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 31 December 1824

M Original Lines, ON THE EXIT OF THE YEAR, 1824. Ob, why should I attempt to ring The knell of time m sorrowing tone ? Or sadly tune the lyre to sing       A requiem o'er the year that's gone ?   It has not been to me so bright     That I should mourn its timely end, Or sit me down in grief to write Farewell to a departing friend ! But if t'would tarry now with me I should, in truth be apt to say "Pass on ! I've had too much of thee,   "To thank thee for an hour's delay !" Thy course was mark'd, dark-closing year, By many a sigh and bitter tear;     By promis'd joy, too long delay'd, By hopes that blossomed but to fade ; By all that blasts the cheeks' warm glow, And wrings the heart with silent woe, Damps the gay plume of fancy's wing, And nips her roses ere they spring ; That turns the lightsome lay of gladness, E'en in its flow, to strains of sadness ; And shades'wi...

To the Editor of the Hobart Town Gazette. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 7 January 1825

To the Editor of the Hobart Town Gazette. SIR,-Tn a country whose population is composed of discordant and combustible materials, the principle of subordination is of 'paramount importance ; for it is the basis 'on which is grounded the security of proper- ty and of person. And to no country un- der heaven does this position more strictly apply than to New South Wales and Van ' Biemen's Xand. Of these remarks, the truth must be too obvious to require, and the nature too deli- cate to admit, the support of detailed argu- mentation. On these assumptions therefore it is ob- vious, that he who employs his talents in the subversion or relaxation of so vital a prin- ciple, may justly be denounced as one who .saps the foundations of the social fabric ; and .the-most direct moans of accomplishing so .'mischievious a work, is to bring into con- tempt those who preside at the helm of our affairs, and whose supreme duty it is to hold . oyer.us/the. shield of protection. It is on these grounds,...

British Extracts. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 7 January 1825

fStftt*!) ISxttacta, PUNISHMENT OF TRANSPORTATION.-When the Transportation Continuance Bill was com- mitted upon the second heading, Mr. Secre- tary ,PEEL in explaining the object of it said, that it was to renew the transportation act which would expire in the present year, and to simplify some of its enactments. Former- ly convicts were transported from this coun- try to North America, and it was the practice that before the sailing of any ship, the King by an order in council used to appoint the particular place to which theconvicts on board were to be conveyed. It was, therefore ne- cessary, as the law now stood, that a coun- cil should be called before the sailing of ev- ery ship ; butas this might not be convenient« the present act gavé to the King a general power of nominating the place to which the convicts should be sent, without the necessity of assembling a council for that purpose. This i bill also did away with the necessity of par ticular contracts being entered into w...

The Australian and the Sydney Gazette of the 16th ult. having been received by the Deveron, we copy the following extract : SUPREME COURT, WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 15,1824t-This morning Dr. WARDLE moved for a rule to shew cause why a Writ of Mandamus should not be directed to the Sheriff ordering him to insert in the Pânnel of Petit Jurors to be returned tot the next General Quarter Sessions of the Peace, to be holden in, and for the town of Sydney, the names of F.

Wo**** fbto* FRIDAY, JANUARY 7, 1825. We have this day the pleasure to com- mence the Tenth Volume of our yet hum- ble, but indisputably improved Journal ; and, however trifling its dimensions may yet appear, on comparison with those of the Sydney Gazette, we have the honour to know, that, when fairly estimated all io all, it must raak unequalled in so infantile a Settlement as Van Diemen's Land. Io truth, all boasting on the subject is super- fluous. But let the eye of candour glance iradi to our primary exertions., and the re- trospect, v/e are ceitain, must honorably award a ttibute to our well-directed perse- verance. Few except oui selves can com- prehend even a tithe of the difficulties which ten years ago we had to grapple with : our type was so limited that we could not com- pose, at once, more than is contained in one of our present sized columns ! There w.as no printing-ink in the Colony, but what we were necessitated to manufacture in the best possible manner for ourselve...

But, as a friend to help- less infancy, 1 cannot refrain from saying, that your observations in behalf of an Institution for abandoned childhood, reflect' honour, last- ing honour, to equally your heart and judg- ment. I cannot doubt their efficacy when the benevolent character of our LIEUTENANT GO- VERNOR is considered. And as it comes un¿ der my own private knowledge, that GOVER- NOR KING, with whom I was officially con- nected, held the establishment of a School foi infants so extremely important, that, in order to effect it, he drew for ¿£1,500 on the British Treasury,-I cannot suppose any difficulty can now exist to bar a similar act of the Colonial Government, in aid of those whom you so elo- quently plead for, and who otherwi...
