Hobart Town. FRIDAY, JANUARY, 21, 1825. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 21 January 1825

Hobart Town. FRIDAY, JANUARY, 21, 1825. In a Colony like this, where, as the At- torney-General once observed, " the in- jurious effects of a public mis-statement are great beyond all calculation," and where it is so much easier to defame than to vindi- cate, the province which devolves on those who conduct this Journal is at all times anxious, and occasionally most unpleasant. A Communication may be sent to us one week, that shall seem perfectly free from exceptionable matter, and which we there- fore can feel no reluctance to publish, but which shall provoke replies one, two, and three, either penned in such a style or em- bracing such topics as to us may appear decidedly improper. But if under such circumstances we presume to enter our ca- veat-if we do not in fact after printing the effusion of one writer insert the opposing Letters of half a dozen others, why then, to be sure, we do not possess the Indepen- dence we avow !-Then we are decried as the parasites of a party-then we...

Greece. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 21 January 1825

<5h4£f££. As every fact illustrative of modern Greece, for whose eventual triumph over Turkish tyranny, so many hopes are che- rished, and so many prayers are cordially breathed, must prove replete with interest to all our ennobled Readers, we conceive that the following statement (from one of the latest English papers) well merits pub- licity. Its author is the Honorable Colonel STANHOPE, and its truth, from his long íesidence in the once classic country he describes, may be implicitly relied on : THE PEOPLE.-The peasantry of Greece possess a large share of rustic virtue. They were within the sphere of Turkey's opprcs _ sion, but without the sphere of her corruption. Not so the people of the towns who conse- quently partake of her vices. This people, but for want of instruction, are as fitted to be free as any nation on earth ; and only those who pretend that il the slaves of to-day are not qualified to be freemen to-morrow"-1 moan the oligarchs-are unworthy the bless- i...

The Young Mountaineer. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 21 January 1825

The Young Mountaineer. O ye valleys of ice, and ye frost-girted fields, How pure is the rapture your atmosphere yields ; All my soul seems to mount on the breezes of morn, And no sound is so sweet as the hunter's shrill horn! Ye sons of pale sloth, in your chambers of rest, Unknown 'mid the circle that nature loves best, Away to your tapers, your tables, and toys. But ask not, and think not of life's highest joys ? How dear is the path that conducts to my shed, When the wild-fowl is torpid, and day-light is fled ; And how blest is the day-beam that bids me awake,   And repair to the forest,the mountain or lake! Hark ! the thunder of battle now breaks on my ear! 'Tis the signal of bliss to the young Mountaineer? A'dieu, native mountains, my hamlet, adieu ! The hills of the stranger now rise to my view ! The trumpet of victory thrills on my soul, And I'll follow the souud to the furthermost Pole; Then up and away with the dawning of light, My arms is for freedom — each ne...

-000 - To the EDITOR. SIR,--Your remarks, and the very excel- lent Letter you inserted in your last, on the subject of our poor ORPHANS, entitles you to the thanks of the Community. But you are not aware, probably, that a Fund already exists, for the support of these unhappy beings ; the appropriation of which, it is now surely time to enquire into.--The Govern- ment Order, by which a Duty is imposed upon all Auction Sales, expressly states, that it is levied for the sole purpose of pro- viding a Fund for Orphans."--At Sydney, Trustees are nominated, who with a Com- mittee, consisting of about twenty Gentle- men, (for names, vide the Sydney Almanack) superintend the disposal of the monies thus levied, and an account thereof is annually published by the Treasurer of the Fund. It is clear then, that if the Duty upon Auction Sales is levied at all, the proceeds ought to be appropriated to the sole purpose for which that import has been expressly laid. Now, Sir, what has become of the v...

To the EDITOR. SIR,-A rumour is in circulation, which requires immediate contradiction if false, or a remedy if true. < It is stated, that the new Naval Officer in- sists that persons having tobacco in the Bonded Store, shall not remove auy part of it they may chu se to select, but must pay duty on the whole, even on such as shall have become rotten and valueless, from cir- cumstances not under the controul of the proprietor ; aud that, in consequence, a body of Gentlemen possessing almost (if not en- tirely) the whole of the bonded tobacco, have determined upon transmitting it to Sydney in the Deveron, paying the duty there on such quantity as they may select, and then returning it here for sale, duty paid. Now, Sir, if this is true, a most serious evil will be the consequence: a sum of not less than «£2.r)00 sterling will be lost to our Revenue, and specie to that amount will be sent out of the Island, which would other- wise be circulated amongst us ; independent of th...

To Hie EDITOR. That the late Lieutenant Governor Sorell, upon all occasions, shewed the utmost at- tention to the wants, the comforts, and the conveniences of this community is perfectly well known, and felt. Amongst other mea- sures adopted by him for the public accom- modation, was the erection of a convenient Wharf and Landing flace, at the back of the Public Stores, where persons, having occa- sion to go on board ship, were in the con- stant habit of embarking, without any inter- ference on the part ot the Naval Officer. Matters, however, have undergone a material change ; no one is now suffered to embark there : even Ladies, who may from business or pleasure have occasion to take a boat, are driven to the island, where a female cannot possibly quit the shore, without difficulty, clanger, and exposure : which latter circum- stance, in these chaste aud tight-laced times, one would suppose would alone have afforded a ¡sufficient. cause to allow that sex at least the privilege of b...

Original Correspondence. To the EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 28 January 1825

*Dngittal &om#i>mfretK& To the EDITOB. SIR,-In reply to your very able, and just vemavks, relative to the Police, and the every day occurrences of robberies, I beg to fetate, that during the last month not more than one Constable was stationed to watch the town at night, with three Constables of the night who never go out of their respec- tive watch-houses. The Publié will naturally ask, where-are the Constables, and how are they employed? There are IO at the Gaol day andnight(5 off and 5 on.) . 4 at the Naval Office. 4 at the Judge's. 4 at the Police Office, and about 6 more at the call of every great mau. Why, Mr. Editor, are not the Military em- ployed to guard the Gaol and the Ofti .cers of State ? And again, with reference *o these constables, watchmen, policemen, or messengers, or whatever else you may please to call them, they are so badly paid that not one of them can do his duty and live. With reference to the town rivulet, there are 12 informations now l...

To the EDITOR: MR, EniTOR,-Much general inconve- nience being felt by those who require Per- mits, in consequence of the immense dis- tance they must go to, before they can reach tiie Police Office, where those forms are at present deliverable, I beg through your in*, teresting Journal to state, that in all com- mercial ports with which I ever was acquaint- ed, permits are issued by the Inspector of Excisa, whose office, for public accommoda- tion, is usually placed in the centre of town. Secondly, I would suggest? that, if it should not be thought proper for the Inspector of Excise in this Port to issue them, whoever else may he authorised so to do should re- side or have an Office near Wellington Bridge, or at all events within an equally short walk from the Bonded Stores and the shipping. -I am, Sir, yours,- &c.

British Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 28 January 1825

íStiítítfj Xntdligttttt. As the Colonies of Great Britain are not only integral parts of our Empire, but admi- nister, in a primary degree, to our trade and commerce, and more particularly to our shipping and navigation, it is a very impor- tant point, that these sources of trade and revenue should be well administered ; and more particularly, "when it) is considered,' that at least one million ol British subjects are under these local Governments. By the law of the land, almost all these Govern- ments are vested entirely in the Crown, and are, in fact, military stations. It is almost a necessary inference, that in as much as they want the Consitutional securities against the abuse of power, their form of administration is less perfect than we are accustomed to see amongst ourselves at home. But, on the other nand, as Parliament is always open to hear any particular grievance, or to receive any remonstrance against any notorious act of ill-government, there is an unquestionable chec...

-OÜW To the EDITOR. Sut,-I perceive in one of your late num- bers an extracted statement* that " Quarter Sessions" are established in the sister Colony. -1 wonder, Mr. Editor, from whence such a report can nave arisen ;. it must surely be a hoax ! because it appears almost impossible that such an establishment could be created there, and this for several reasons : 1st. The English Quarter Sessions are held by a Quorum of the Justices of eacb respec- tive County. In our Act of Parliament the Quorum Clause is altogether omitted, 2dly. It appears, that only two Justices of the Peace were (when the last accounts left Sydney) in the Commission of New South Wales; that is to say, the names of only two Gentlemen were inserted in the recent Com mishion of the Peace which appeared " by Authority" in the Sydney Gazette, by which new Commission all former Magisterial powers became defunct. > 3dly. By the Act of Parliament all crimi- nal-charges, against free persons, must be by Information ...

Postscript. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 28 January 1825

Postscript As the Coursers of Arabia are distinguís h )le for their speed, and the Terriers of iledon remarkable for courage, so the filial »scendants of him who originally printed e Sydney Gazette, are celebrated at once r ignorance, impudence, dissimulation, and :urrility. 1 hey cannot speak or write, or ^ink as Gentlemen,-but then, " what len?"-they are practical professors of Lav jge des hallet, ; or to employ plain English Sr their accommodation, " the language of |e markets."

If iy of our Headers should desire to know that has provoked this exposition, we would ifer them to a Pandora's Box, without Hope tthe bottom, which is called " The Tasma kn»" and which developes enmity instead of fatiludej cant instead of morals, illegal puse without discreet regard to legal con Bquences, and an irrefragable proof or de- monstration that, as...

Hobart Town. FRIDAY, JANUARY 28, 1825. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 28 January 1825

Hobart Town. FRIDAY, JANUARY 28, 1825. Amongst our British Extracts in the last page will be found a detail of some aston- ishing falsehoods, relative to His Excellency Sir THOMAS BRISBANE. And if any ar- gument could yet be required to illustrate the value of an Independent Journal in Co- lonies resembling New South Wales and its Dependencies, the detail to which we make reference would furnish it, in combi- nation with a serious assurance of its being no less the interest of those who govern than of those who are governed, that local discontent may locally exhaust its viru- lence. Vile, undeniably vile as human nature is, the virtuous ruler must always find partisans ; and as it is absolutely be- yond the powers of any administration to satisfy the conflicting expectations of all parties, there will be murmers, and some of those murmers will be unprovoked, except by an unbiassed discharge of legislatorial duties. But how trifling, how transient is the evil of unjust vituperation w...

Tasmanian Company. By a Commercial Firm of the first respect- ability in Hobart Town, we are favoured with the following Prospectus of a Tasma- nian or Van Diemen's Land Joint Stock Com- pany, (bearing date at Leith, 1st May, 1824:) to which we solicit attention, as it will of course afford pleasure to the sanguine, and must at least form an interesting subject of discussion : "As the trade between Van Diemen's Land   and Great Britain is daily increasing, and that Colony in a commercial point of view rising to eminence, the advantages of a re- gular communication are evident ; it is pro- posed therefore to form a Joint Stock Com- pany for the purpose of facilitating the in- tercourse, and opening up the resources of Van Diemen's Land, in its mercantile rela- tions with South America and -Great Britain.

-OU O To the EDITOR. SIR,-The unspeakable, public advanta- ges arising from a Free Press, were never more decidedly apparent than by referring to your last numbers, wherein the attention of the High Authorities, and of a still greater Ipower, ¡mbUc opinion, having been drawn to |lhe official conduct of certain individuals, holding Government situations, symptoms have' appeared, from which important ehan Iges may be expected. But this, Sir, is only the natural consequence of the establishment of an independent Press ; for which you are entitled to the gratitude of the commu- nity, and you will receive it ! It is said that the new Naval Officer disa- vows the charges which are contained in my Letter of the* 21st ultimo. I am happy to see this. It shews a disposition to amend- ment, and gives us reason to hope that if it had pleased the Chief Authority to continue him m the Office, of which it is understood that he is only the temporary occupant, he would have deported himself with som...

About nine months since, a gang of men was sent by Government to Clarence Plains', for the expressed purpose of building a Glebe house, and making other necessary improve- ments on the Parsonage Lands, lor tue use of the present incumbent and that of his successors. The Inspector of Works is com- petent to determine their proficiency in the intended buildings, &c. bow the greater part of this gang, victualled and clothed at the public expense, is« at present employed in reaping the parsonage wheat, and perform ine other private agricultural services, on Egyptian task-work, the Parson incurring no expense whatever, in payment or provi- sions ; consequently as tenders of grain will now be received by the Commissary, and the cheapest adopted, the Parson can meet no competition...
