Colonial Times. HOBART TOWN:_ FRIDAY, JULY 20, 1827. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 20 July 1827

Colonial Times. HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, JULY 20, 1827. Ever anxious to promote the welfare of the Colony, we have aforetime offerEd a few sug-   gestions on the Police Department. We   it was who first recommended the Chain Gangs, for punishment. We have exposed the abuses of the Constabulary, and we are very happy to find that those observations which we have been induced to make, have not been thrown away or neglected. The beneficial influence of the Chain Gangs, is, we believe, now pretty well acknowledged, and those certain points in the conduct of the Constabulary, which we took upon our-   selves to notice, are now in a great measure corrected. A well regulated and conducted Police, we consider to be one of the most de- finable things in the world, in a Colony peo- pled as is Van Diemen's Land. We are al- ways advocates for the prevention, rather than the punishment of crime, and to do this is the peculiar province of a properly con- structe...

Lieutenant Guan [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 27 July 1827

Lieutenant Gunn From the lively interest which the Colonists appeared to take, from the following   documents, in the lamentable loss which Lieutenant Gunn sustained in the pursuit of   the late banditti of bushrangers, headed by Brady, no less than that of his right arm, we are induced to think that no measure, how- ever trivial, could be adopted by the   Govvernment for the extermination of bush- rangers, without ensuring the gratitude of the Colonists at large. Lieutenaut-Gunn certainly suffered most materially. In his endeavours at Pitt-water, to rescue the Colony from the outrages of the bush-ranger, at that time, he lost what no pecuniary consideration could ever repay hiim for- hiis right arm. He merited therefore (and richly) the benevolence displayed by his fellow Colonists. When we draw the comparison between his exertions and those of the Government, we take this view, simply. He exposed himself to personal danger, nay, to death. The...

Letters to the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 27 July 1827

mmrnmr^i Sir,-According to the paragraph which appears in your Paper of last week, respect- ing the Letter of a " Settler," wherein you state, several Officers.of the 40th Regiment, vhad'called on l/ehalfo{ Lieut. Curten, I beg ''to say that your Correspondent did not, in 'his Letter,' wish to insinuate the least im- propriety in Lieut. Cúrtenos conduct on that occasion. He entertains too high an opinion 'of Lieut. Curton's integrity, as a Magistrate, to believe for a moment he would act par- tially.-I also disclaim any motive to mislead you, or to circulate private slander. I was induced to take up this case, merely from humane motives, on the repiesentation ol a defenceless man, that he might be shielded from "the " persecution of his, master."-My information of what passed on the trial be- fore the Magistrate, was obtained from the man himself, and which I had no reason to doubt the truth of ^-knowing, as I do, the treatment of this man for ihe last eighteen months; and if his st...

Colonial Times. HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, JULY 27, 1827. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 27 July 1827

Colonial Times HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, JULY 27, 1827. We are very averse, and always have been, to make any statements in the Colonial Times, which might be attributed to a wish, to use an English newspaper expression, to puff the Colony of Van Diemen's Land, in preference to that of New South Wales. When we have touched upon the capabili- ties of each Colony, we have endeavoured studiously to avoid overstepping the bounds of truth ; and of having our statements tinc- tured by partiality. We have been accused of this, but totally disclaim it, and throw back the unfounded calumny contemptuously on our accusers. But to the point. It is an in- controvertible fact, that within the last few years, the tide of emigration to this Island as been gradually falling off, and has flown to the elder Colony. Formerly, this was not the case. Ship after ship arrived, both fiom England, Scotland, and Ireland, with some   fifty, some seventy, and some even one hun- dred wealthy emigrants fo...

English News, TO THE 3D APRIL. (From the Globe of April 3.) [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 3 August 1827

English JVeívs, TO THE 3D APRIt. (From the Globe of April 3.) The second reading of the Coin Bill was opposed last night (the 2d of April) in the House of Commons by Sir Thomas Leth- bridge, and some other County Members, and supported by Mr. Charles Grant, in a very able speech, though his reasoning, like that of Mr, Canning, in pioposing the bill, may be considered rather an attack upon the existing law, than a satisfactory defence of the proposed plan. If, indeed, the opinion given by Mr. Whitmore, that the produce of this country, on the average of a number of years, is decidedly below the quantity re- quired for its own consumption be correct, uie new plan will M woçk well" for the agri- culturists, and will keep tolerably steady prices, while it has for consumers this advan- tage, that the price which it attempts to se- cure is lower than in the two previous bills of 1815 and 1822. But if either now the cultivation be extensive enough, or if here- after it be made extensive en...

Supreme Court. On Monday this Court re-opened, agreeably to the notice issued by the Chief Justice.   The whole qf the day was occupied in the trial of the late bush-rangers, who attempt- ed to take the Emma Kemp; namely, George Braithwaite, William Birmingham, James Horsefield, Matthew M'Cullum, Thomas Da- vis, Thomas Griffiths, George Metcalfe, John Lee, James Coates, John Brown (mariner), John Brown (bricklayer), and John Robin- son. They were tried for the robbery at Mr. Stanfield's, and all found - Guilty. On Tuesday, William Fowler, (the monster of whom so much has been recently said in our Paper) was tried for committing the rape on the infant, Fanny Sharpless; and acquit-   ted, in consequence of the Chief Justice taking an objection to some part of the   evidence. The prisoner was remanded, on a charge of murdering the said infant. John Flynn was then tried for privately stealing a metal watch, in the dwelling house of Mr. John Petchey...

STDNEY EXTRACTS From the Australian. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 3 August 1827

SYDNEY EXTRACTS. From the Australian. Great complaints continue to be made by the merchants of Sydney, at their being obli- ged to suffer the three per cent, on convert- ing British silver into Treasury Bills. The profit made by the Government on this ex- change, has already proved enormous; and, unless the custom be shortly abandoned, and bills given at par, the silver currency will disappear, and find its way in the manner we have already described, to the Isle of France. The Catarrh, or Influenza, continues to extend its ravages. It appears to be making the circuit of the Colony, and as far as we can ascertain, it is much more severely felt in all parts of the country, than it has been at Sydney.   The coffin in which the late Mr. D'Arcy Wentworth was interred weighed nearly half   a ton. It was made of cedar, and enclosed within a leaden coffin, and within that a shell, in which the body was deposited. Report says, that Mr. Wentworth has made a very equ...
