THE BREAST THAT IS SHIELDED BY THE ARMOOR OF INTEGRITY, CANNOT BE WOUNDED By THE SWORD OF TRUTH. Old Saying. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 7 September 1827

THE BREAST THAT IS SHIELDED BY THE AR- MOUR OF INTEGRITY, CANNOT BE WOUN-   DED BY THE SWORD OF TRUTH.     Old Saying. There is a narrow-minded prejudice in cer- tain people which makes them imagine that every one is "envious" of, or opposed to their success (whether actual or anticipated), when they meet with the slightest oppostion to their own wild and extravagant career. In indivi- duals troubled with this 'evil spirit' we ob-   serve a kind of "touchiness," and a sort of te- nacity, which readily points them out from amongst the crowd ; and, directing the finger of contempt towards them, says—Thou art the man !" " thou art the world's fell enemy, and thine own tormentor !" We have frequently ruminated over the probable cause of such dire effects on the human mind—we have pondered many a weary hour on the subject, and could only trace it to one elementary principle—         &a...

Colouial Timer. HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 1827. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 14 September 1827

Colonial Times.   HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 1827. At the present time, when almost every Settler in the Island is complaining of the depression among the agricultural portion of the community, there is no step, however trivial it may appear, that can fairly and pro- perly be termed indifferent, provided it tends   in any way to remove the cause of the com- plaint. Our agricultural prosperity is of such vital importance that it demands every ener-   gy which it is in the power of man to bestow upon it- particularly when we see at the pre-   sent moment, instead of its increasing, the contrary to be the case. The strength of every nation, and of every state-the foundation of all real national power, depends most ma- terially on agriculture. Without it no old   state can prosper, much less a new one ad- vance. It is the centre upon which the whole system of political economy must turn-it forms the basis of all co...

[FROM A CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 21 September 1827

[Froh a Corresi'onuent/} You will oblige a Country Sub-cribçr by inserting the lollowing article, on farm ser- vants' wages, (fiom the Edinburgh Weekly Journal), that the free labouier here may know what wages are at home. Labom is certainly too'low in England, and by fat too high here ; but it is coming down, and must come lower still, betöre improvements can be carried on to'any extent. Fiee men demand such high wages, that they often find it very difficult to get work, theieby injure them- selves, and the country likewise. Glvsgow, Nov. 23.-.Yesterday being old Martinmas Wednesday, the town from an early hour was thronged with couutry people'.--^ As usual, farmers who wanted servants re- sorted to their place of meeting-the end of the Old Bridge. The I armer» pointedly re- fused to give the wages that were got at this time last year; the servants were very reluc- tant to engage for less.

Colonial Distillation. To the Editor of the Colonial Times. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 21 September 1827

Colonial £U#tíUaUou. -*~ms^^ To the Editor of the Colonial Times. Sir,-The following observations are occa- sioned by the letter in last week's Gazette, subscribed " Ignotus ;" who declares himself the opponent ot Colonial distillation. The suhjei t which he has chosen for discussion, is of the last importance to the interests of Van Dtemen's Land. It is therefore perhaps mole deserving than any other of being tho- roughly known and appreciated ; particu- larly at the present time, when itis expected to engage the attention of his Excellency in Council. At the same time, the arguments of Ignotus are extremely ingenious and well put, and on their own merits are" worthy of investigation It may be well therefore for the Public to ascertain how far their decision should be on his side, or on that of the ad- vocates for the consumption of Colonial pro- duce. He endeavours to prove that distilla- tion at a low duty, will be found detrimen- tal to the Revenue, or to the morality of the low...

Colonial Times     HOBART TOWN :   FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 1827. We have been under the necessity this week of giving two full Sheets of our Jour- nal. THe last Government Gazette, contain- ing three Acts of Council, twO of ,them Affecting In a material degree the interests of the Colony, has obliged us to undertake this extraordinary labour. We have in deed laboured greatly; but we could not do otherwise, than give so much as possi- ble the opinions of the Colonists on the two Acts in question ; namely, the Printers' 'License Act, and the Newspaper Stamp Act. The People are more intimately in- terested in the welfare of Newspapers   than many persons at first would imagine ; particularly in a Colony so circumstanced as this, it is of the most vital importance.   Newspapers may be said to give a new impetus to trade-to advance the com- mercial interests-to open new resouices of     revenue and p...
