TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 4 February 1825

TO CORRESPONDENTS. I A 'Norfolk Islander is perfectly accurate, in his remarks on a " custom more honoured in the breach than the observance;" and we shall embrace an early opportunity of making them public. The Lady alluded to by " A Colonist1" has our best thanks, for sending us a Communica- tion, in which some of his statements ale rescued from the doubts we before enter- tained respecting them. W.'s note on the subject of the Rev. Mr. Youl is acknowledged. In answer we shall only state, that the Cap we lately manufactured was not intended for that Gentleman, whose merits as a man and a christian, wè shall always respect. x Remarks on the Colony, vnth a view to im- prove it, shall receive attention : but their jj author must plead his own grievances, as li we cannot interfere except on especial grounds. He ought to demand an inter- view. S. W. whose Letter is dated New Norfolk will perhaps the first time he may cometo town oblige us with a call. His "strictures on consummate igno...

ttl-U-MKUW-J-tU-O-UJ_'J J« ß_f" lÄany an enfeebled tottering and super- annuated criminal is prosecuted, not that per- sonal lesentment may be gratified, but for the suppression of a public grievance.-And many a pen-and-ink charlatan is castigated, not be- cause his malignity is feared, but lest his pre- sumption should misdeem itself omnipotent. We therefore claim an excuse for condescend-1 ing to offer a few remarks on The Tasma- nian, Which however degradative on the part of those who conduct, and offensive to those "who at first were inclined to patronize it, amalgamates vice with its folly, and the curd-, ling acerbities of morbid spleen with its skim nted-milk and water insipidity I But why, it may be asked, do we take the trouble to no lice an attack, or rather a mode of attack, which is infinitely more ludicrous and contemp- tible than that of the Lilliputians on Gulliver, the great man-mountain! Why do we resist a gander's quill, which, like the dagger of a sui- cide, is in...

Hobart Town. FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 4, 1825. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 4 February 1825

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 4, 1825. Having just now heard that, in payment of certain duties to our acting Naval Officer, guineas will not be accepted, because and only because the good old coin so termed have been çalled-in hy the Govern- ment at home ; we beg to know two impor- tant facts,-the first of which is, whether j the above named allegation is correct? for we can scarcely credit it ! and the second is, if guineas have been called in at home, can their rejection as an unlawful tender in so distant and peculi&rlv constituted a Colony as this, where that British Intelligence has never perhaps been published, be main- tained as just, respected as generous, or contemplated as politic ? Of one thing we are sure, the late Naval Officer never rejected them. And it is our serious requi- sition on behalf of this Commercial Com- munity, that if his Successor, whilst hold- ing a pro tempore appointment, is determin- ed to act as none of his predecessors ever did act-or to plainly expose...

To the EDITOR, [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 4 February 1825

-uuu To the EDITOR, SIR,--Your spirited remarks on the dread- ful state of the Police of this Town are both just and necessary. I beg leave to mention that at Sydney every Constable has his name affixed, to his jresideace by a large printed board over his door ; whereby any person wanting the assistance of the Civil Power knows where to apply. Now here, I am convinced, the residence of most of the Con- stables is wholly unknown to a considerable majority of the Inhabitants. 1 should hope that our worthy Magistrates are not so wedded to their own system, that they are unwilling to adopt a useful measure because it is in practice elsewhere ; and therefore if you think fit to insert this in your next num- ber, perhaps we, as well as our Australian brethren, shall know where to find a Con stable in case of necessity. -I am,'' Sir, your s, &c. . AN OLD RESIDENT, January 29, 1825.

SIR,-A. wonderously facetious Gentleman, who is pleased to indulge us by discanting upon a subject which he evidently does not understand, and which would not concern him if he did, seeing that he is only a resi- dent in this more happy Colony of* Tasma- nia, condescends in yesterday's Gazette to instruct the Public in the Law relating to Quarter Sessions, and is particularly witty withal upon those which have been recently established in N ew South Wales. I would, Mr. Editor, that these merry souls amongst us, who are so ready on every Friday to illuminate the ignorant upon all matters in Church and State, possessed ra- ther less of this strange endemic cacoethes, and somewhat more of the ordinary whole- some quality, which consists simply in mind- ing their own business. JVesutor ultra cre~ pidam, was the wise admonition of a witty ancient. And truly I do wish the good folks 1 spe...

Supreme Court. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 4 February 1825

Supreme Court MONDAY.--Samuel Thomas Fielding, aged 21, and John Newton, aged 16, both late of   Lemon Springs, were arraigned for feloni- ously stealing and driving away, on the 1st Instant- at Anstey Barton, forty sheep, worth   £30, the property of Mr. Arnold Fisk. Plea, Not Guilty. His Majesty's Attorney-General (J. T. GEL- LIBRAND, Esq.) briefly introduced the facts, and called the prosecutor, who said--I live about 6 miles beyond Jericho, where I have a farm and I am Chief District Constable of   Methvin. Besides my own sheep, I have 400 or 500, which belong to other people, on the thirds. I have so had them from the 11th of last May. Previous to the 1st in- stant, I had lost a great many sheep ; and at that time they were not right. I ought to have then had 24 scores and 17, excluding   my previous losses of 69 and about 80 be- sides. I counted my sheep then, and there were 17 over the scores ; but the number of scores has e...

DEAR SIR,-We, the undersigned, being all the Cabin Passengers (with one exception) on board your ship, beg leave on the ter- mination of our voyage to return you our sincere Thanks, for the uniform kindness and attention shewn us by you throughout the whole of the passage.   Subjected as we have been from the period of our quitting Rio, to many severe priva- tions, we have the satisfaction of bearing testimony that it is not to you we owe them ; since (unhappily for our comfort) the provi- sioning of the passengers, and other arrrange ments respecting them, rested in other hands. We have on the contrary to express our re- gret, that we were not placed solely under your care ; as we feel assured, from the good feeling and sense of propriety which we have witnessed in you, that we should in that case have been not only provided for liberally, but have met with the attention to which we were entitled, and been effec- tually se...

To the EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 11 February 1825

To the EDITOR. SIR,-Through the medium of your valuable Paper I wish to communicate a few particulars founded on my own experience relative to the procurement of water, an article so neces- sary to our existence and comfort, and of which there has been during the late dry season, a great scarcity in many parts of the Colony. If a given quantity of rain be deposited upon the surface of the earth, that which does not escape by evaporation, or appear to be lost by absorption, must necessarily find a channel either to the river or the ocean. It is the collection of these different cur- rents of water which forms the lake and the river. If upon a large surface of land there be no visible current of water, we are then warranted in concluding that there must be subterraneous channels through which this element is making its esqape. Providence, though always bountiful and gracious, does not supply our wants or satisfy the desires of the heart, without requiring on our part labour and exerti...

Golice Machane, ASCRIBED TO LORD BYRON. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 11 February 1825

ASCRIBED TO LORD BYRON. The clouds may pour down on Culloden's red plain, But the waters shall flow o'er its crimson in vain : For their drops shall seem few to the tears for the slain,   But mine are for thee, brave Golice Macbane ! Though thy death was the hero's, and glorious thy grave,   Though thy cause was the cause of the injured and brave ;   With thy dead foes around thee pil'd high on the plain, My sad heart bleeds o'er my Golice Macbane. How the horse and the horsemen thy single aim slew, But what could the mightiest single arm do ? A hundred like thee might the battle re-gain, But cold are thy hand and heart, Golice Mac- bane. - With thy back to the wall, and thy breast to the target   Full flashed thy claymore in the face of their charge,     The blood of their boldest that barren turf stain,- But alas ! thine is reddest there, Golice Mac- bane. Hewn down, but still battling, those sunk'st on ...

To the EDITOR. SIR,--The letter of Rusticas has been read by the Public with the utmost astonishment and indignation ; and the plain statement it contains will no doubt call, forth similar feel- ings elsewhere. It may be perhaps not use- less to add, that neither Mr. Youl, the Senior Assistant Chaplain here, nor any of the As- sistant Chaplains in New South Wales, has or have eyer put Government to one shilling ex pence-in the manner mentioned by Rusticus. Why then is the Junior Assistant Chaplain to saddle the Public with so enormous and in- judicious an expence ?-It is reported, that a boast- has been made by Mr. B--ltbee, an individual who states himself to be either partner or tenant at the farming concern, that it will clear £1000 a year net profit.
