' Leint be impressed upon your minds, let it beinstilled into'your children, llutt tile Liberty of the Press is the Palladium ot ' all your Civil, Political, and Rohaions Rights. Junius. --?-»?? ¡We. have uo desire to make our Paper the means of introducing political controversies with any of our contemporaries, nor of need- lessly obtruding our own creed upon its Rea- ders, yet there is a poiut in reference to the first position, beyond which silence would be- token improper apathy ; and with regard to the lattor, having already stated what our opinions are, it' only remains for us to act consistently up to them. Long before our connection with the Public Pressa it had repeatedly occurred to us, that the line of argument adopted by a contemporary writer, of no inconsiderable standing, relative to the natural and other advantages of this Colony, was founded in error, and fraught with delusion ; but w6 had been so much ..accustomed to hear the ...

The Aborigines, [FROM THE LAUNCESTON ADVIERTISER.] [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 26 March 1830

The Aborigines,   [FROM THE LAUNCESTON ADVERTISER.]       Last week a party of Natives at Piper's Uiver, entered the hut of William Gee, a Settler there. It appears that two   of the men had gone out in search of some sheep that were missing, leaving James Sprangle, an assigned servant, in   charge of the hut. On their return they found the hut had been robbed of a quantity of flour and sugar, a fowling piece   and ammunition, together with a young kangaroo dog. On searching for Sprangle, who was missing, they discovered his body, about thirty yards off, lying upon its back ; there   were several spear wounds in the neck, one through the head, and another had entered about the region of the heart. On the circumstance being teported, a party was sent, accom- panied by, a cart and four bullocks, to bring the body ; on their arrival at the spot, they fouud it so mutilated by &amp...

Swan River. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 26 March 1830

Swan River.   By the arrival of the Nancy, which anchored here on Sa- turday last, after a passage of 17 days from Swan River, we learn the following particulars respecting that Settle- ment :-       There have been altogether, including the crews of the men-of-war, from 2500 to 3000 persons landed, there since the first colonization, most of whom are still residing in tents, into which also as many of their goods and packages have been stowed as the places would contain; but this forms   no proportion to the quantities that have been landed, which have been very considerable. We are told that the beach re- sembles a battery, in its appearance from the water, package upon package being piled up to a great height, and in many places buried in the sand. One of the first settlers, a Mr. Leake, prudently set about building a house of substantial materials, immediately upon landing, and having converted it into a store, is ...

Americana. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 2 April 1830

Americana.   AN AMERICAN EDITOR—The printer of the Harrison (Ohio) Telegraph makes a most touching appeal to the feelings of his subscribers. We subjoin and extract form his address:— It is common, we know, for delinquent subscribers to assert that the printer is always making a poor mouth; but reality it would be difficult for us to make a fat one. And all will ac- cord with us in opinion, when we inform them from the 1st of August, up to the 4th of March we have received, on account   of subscription, 2½ bushels of wheat, 2 of corn, 6 of potatoes, (half of which are frozen) 127lbs. of pork, 3 quarters of beef, and one of veal. We have not received cash enough during this time to pay for the paper we used. And all would justify us in putting the screws to delinquents, when they are further informed that we are now out of paper, out of ink, out of flour,   out of meal, out of beef, out of pork, out of cash, out of credit, and most desperately o...

Supreme Court. APRIL 2, 1830. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 2 April 1830

Supreme Court.         APRIL 2, 1830.             The Court has been occupied since yesterday morning in the trial of Charles Routley and James Hannaway, on a charge of cattle-stealing. The prisoners are two of the celebrated Greenhill's gang, and some of our readers will recollect, that in December, 1828, the Editor of the Tasmanian felt himself called upon to make an apology to Routley, for having stated that there were criminal charges against that individual. It appears that the Richmond Police had a different view of the matter, and by dint of zeal and perseverance have at length collected sufficient evidence to put Routley and others on their trial, for offences committed five years ago. It appears that   in the course of the examinations before the Magistrates, that many circumstances have come to light, which will probably furnish suf...

Swan River. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 2 April 1830

Swan River.               The scites for the intended townships in progress when the Nancy left Swan River, were called Freemantle and Perth, the former is situated at the entrance of the Swan, nearly paralell with the sand bar which has proved so injurious to several vessels. The township of Perth is about 12 or 14 miles farther up the River, which in its course is generally shallow, with every here and there deep holes, and the water is salt for some considerable distance further up than Perth. At a distance of 30 or 40 miles from Freemantle, the stream is of the finest fresh water, but there are so many contradictory statements respecting that article, that we hardly dare venture to believe either side, for one party asserts that good wholesome water can be obtained at all times within a few inches of the surface, while the greater number on the contrary state, that it is excessively scarce...
