TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 14 January 1825

TO CORRESPONDENTS. We have received, but cannot insert a very masterly production from one of our most enlightened Correspondents, who charges Philo with inaccurately staling " a distin- guished officer" (alluded to in his letter), as Governor of Honduras, when in fact " that country being a Province of Mexico, where *. the British log-cutters have, under certain " treaties with Spain, a soit of permissive oc- cupation,-but, it not belonging territorially to Britain, of course no establishment what- ever, such as Philo would convey by the word Governor, can there exist." The " Original Lay" of our friend S.- H. is truly named. In candour, however, we must add, it would not be understood by one half of our Readers, nor thought worthy a perusal by the other.

To the EDITOR, [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 14 January 1825

To the EDITOR, Sir,-Your Correspondents, "Nadoe,"   and " a Subscriber" have expressed the sen- timents of the Public generally, as to the Organ for St. David's Church.-There is, however, another subject somewhat connect- ed with their Communications, which per- haps you may consider not unworthy atten- tion. It is the Regulations as to the Pews. By reference to the Sydney Newspapers, you, will perceive that all the Churches in the Sister Colony are superintended by a Com- mittee, of which the Assistanl Chaplains are merely Members. But here, does or does not our Assistant Chaplain assume to himself the whole management of the Church over which, as your Correspondent observes, he has no sort of authority, being not a perma- nent, but a temporary and itinerant resident? It would be desirable therefore for the   Public to be informed what becomes of the Pew Rents : by whom the rates are settled : how the seats are disposed of as to choice,: and why a Church C...

To the EDITOR. SIR,- I, like a writer in your last Gazette, am "a Friend to fair Competition" ; but,   unlike him, I also am a Friend to Truth ! And whenever any man for selfish purposes will presumingly advance through a public Journal averments which either he must know are false, or at least cannot know to be correct,- I conceive it becomes the duty of all who love fair competition, to expose that which cannot but be viewed as impo singly otherwise! Whether Mr. Martin is, or is not, "an ex perienced seaman of twenty years' standing," Sir, I shall not for one moment consider : for even had his cradle been the breast of Nep tune, that would be matter entirely extraneous from a discussion as to which of two specific Ferries is locally more advantageous than the other. But I will say, fearless of refutation   and triumphant in common sense, that "a   Friend to fair Competition, when he gar- nished his Letter with so elaborate an eulogy on the ne...

To the EDITOR, Mr. EDITOR,-I was much pleased in read- ing in your Hobart Town Gazette of the 7th instant an appeal to the liberality of Govern- ment to found an ORPHAN SCHOOL on this Island ; and I cannot refrain from expressing my sentiments on such laudable Institutions. These establishments are most assuredly among those which offer the highest eulogiums to human nature-institutions which derive their origin from principles that must be uni- versally approved. Let us view them in whatever situation we may, they appear of so benevolent, so divine a complexion, that be the founder of ever so exceptionable a character in other respects, his charitable disposition to the perfectly friendless, ap- pears so estimable a trait in our eyes, that we cannot withhold the tribute of our admi- ration, but are constrained to pay a due reverence to his memory. Without meaning   to incur the charge of intrusion upon the offices of the sacred character, we may, we hope, be pardoned i...

Hobart Town. FRIDAY, JANUARY 14, 1825. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 14 January 1825

FRIDAY, JANUARY 14, 1825. We believe that Government, locally considered, have a wise and benevolent object in all its Regulations of this Colony; but the prophetic Ghost of Samuel need not lise to inform us, that sometimes the holiest designs aie fatally productive of the vilest consequences. The laws which may be found most strictly expedient in one state of a community, will in another state be proved subversive of their original oper- ation, and actually coadjutive of those mischiefs which they were projected to ob- viate or repress. There is a progression, silent indeed, but undeniable, in all things subject to mortality. As a sage of anti- quity exclaimed, the wisest law of Lycur gus was that which rendered every law subject to revision. And so strong is our confidence in both the fine sense and pure -sentiment of those by whom the state-affairs of Van Diemen's Land are now adminis- tered, that we dare assert they will more highly esteem us, for urging an amendment by pointing...

To itíkEDÍTon. !) J. ; MR. EDITOR,-'?The Night Watch is an ex- tremely ancient institution in all civilized and -well regulated ¿communities. It often Ioccurs inv the Sacred Volujme, arid in the Boplc of, Psalms there ia an extremely perti- nent observation, tending to illustrate its antiquity : " Except the Lord keeps the city, th§ watchman waketh but in vain." -»These observations occur with considerable force when the state of <the watch in this large town is recollected, to w hich you have, with your usuaj independence,!r so strongly called the attention of, our Rulers.-I assure you,' Sir, ,it is a complaint which all persons here agree in the necessity of urging in the most strenuous manner. The safety of persons and propei ty from after night-fall depends at present entirely upon individual care and exertion. That we are entitled tb-profection from the Goverment, no one will deny. It is equally notorious that we do not receive it. The Police Establishment of the tow...

To the EDITOR, Sir,- A short time ago I was in great hopes that the Clearing Gangs, established by the late LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR, would have been by this time in general use, so much so, that any person might have one on making application ; but I regret to find, that so far from that being the case, they are not now in operation. I have heard (whether true or no some of your Readers can tell), that they were withdrawn because forsooth--" they did not pay Government," or, in other words, Government were losers -a very poor answer to the good that would accrue from them. If this really was the sole reason, I should be glad to ask-whe- ther the same cause would not hold good in New South Wales? Certainly it would. But the Government there say (as I have heard), that they get all kinds of grain cheaper, be- cause there are many more cultivators. The same answer would apply equally well here. So long as our Sydney neighbours have these superiorities, it will be a long time before we can ...

—000— To the EDITOR.     SIR,— You will, I feel assured, admit to your columns the particulars of a Discovery, (which has been recently made in this dis- trict, upon the estate of Mr. DANIEL STAN- FIELD, jun.) important to the Public as well as the proprietor. Limestone, of the best quality, has been   ascertained to exist in abundance throughout a Cliff, which forms a part of the coast of Ralph's Bay. It is of a bluish-grey colour, extremely hard and compact, and resembles most, in external character, the Bristol lime- stone, which is so highly esteemed in Eng- land. — It has been submitted to chemical analysis, as well as the ordinary text of burning and slaking ; and it has been by both results demonstrated to be of an extremely rich quality, both for the purposes of ma- nure and those of cement.     — I am, Sir, your most obediant servant, E. H. Clarence Plains, Jan. 18, 1825.
