-oou To the EDITOR. SIR,*-An enlightened and much esteemed I writer has observed in the dedication of his letters, that u the Liberty of the Press is | the palladium of the civil, religious, and po- j litical rights of Englishmen." This obser- j vation has on every occasion of moment tes- tified its truth ; for what would become of us were it not for a Free Press, that great en- gine capable of doing so much good in the hands of independent characters, and of being "liable to be perverted to the woist of purposes were it at the command of persons who would not wield it for their country's welfare. Your Paper, on which I öfter my congratulations, is on the eve of reaching a zenith of prosperity. It is as anxiously sought after every week as I am sure must meet your most sanguine expectations ; in- dependently of which its circulation is great ¡n the mother country and elsewhere. What has brought it to this pitch ; here is your in- dependency in exposing abuses in order to meet the ey...

-000 To the EDITOR. SIR,-The Letter of a Merchant in' your last deserves . most serious attention. Per- haps it may not be "unimportant to add, that another great evil prevails in the Naval Offi- cer's Department. That he or some other per- sonage, it is said, takes a gallon of spirits ¡from every cask, as a perquisite ! If. so, this n illegal«" The law only allows one pint to life taken from a cask, and that only on pay |ng?for the same. There can be no doubt ^3$ut that if any public, spirited Merchant Was T to bring an action1 in the Supreme Coiirt to recover the value of whatever number of gal- lons of, spirits may on the perquisite pre- tence have been exacted from him, hewould I recover ample damages. -1 am, Sir, yours, &C. PETER.

TO the EDITOR, SIR, - Another hoax, Mr. Editor! Your Correspondent, Veritas, must be a wag! It   is quite impossible that such a Commission of the Peace as that which he speaks of can be in contemplation: what! place the Government     people in the Magistracy, to the exclusion   of all the other Gentlemen in Hobart   Town! it is quite out of the question. Our   Public Officers have power enough, and take good care to shew it too, without giving them additional means of exerting it. Surely such Gentlemen as Mr. Kemp (who has been 30 years in these Colonies, and whose local   experience and independence of conduct are well known), Mr. Bethune, Dr. Hood, Mr. G. C. Clark, Mr. Beaumont, Mr. Champion, Mr. Underwood, and several others of   established reputation, known to us for years, surely, Sir, I say, these Gentlemen cannot be passed over, and individuals placed in the Commission w...

MR. HENRY FAUNTLEROY,   The circumstances connected with the sus- pension of payment by the banking-house of Marsh, Stracey, Fauntleroy, and Graham of Berner's-street, have been the subject of gen- eral conversation in the City. The necessity   of suspending payments by the firm in ques- tion was publicly announced by the following notice:- " Berners-strèet, Sept 11 1824. " The very unexpected situation in which we suddenly find our house placed by the extraordinary conduct of our partner Mr. Fauntleroy, has determined us for the pre- sent to suspend our payments, as most just and becoming to our friends in general.   W.M.

EXECUTIONS     This morning Henry Mc'Connell, for bush ranging and burglary ; James Bryan, Jeremi- ah Ryan, Charles Ryder, Musquito, a Sydney black, and Black Jack, a native of this Colony for murder, John Logan, for shooting with intent to murder Mr. Shoobridge and Peter Thackery, for stealing in a dwelling-house, and putting the owner in bodily fear, were executed according to their sentence - a sad example of the fate which sooner or later must overtake the enormities of which they had been convicted. On this occasion, for the first time, the Scaffold was erected within the Gaol walls, but in view of the town; and we should not be doing justice to the newly appointed Sheriff, if we failed to state that the whole of the melancholy arrangements reflec- ted credit to his feelings, as an Officer and a Gentleman. The unhappy men on ascending the Platform, displayed a becoming humility, expressed their deep remorse, and, after sing- ing an appropriate hymn, jo...

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 25, 1825.

But, as, in many in- stances, our farmers live a day's walk or more from the residence of a Magistrate ; and as the Statute above alluded to enacts, that any householder, settler, or other per- son, harbouring or employing any person il- legally at large, shall pay a fine from 5 to 50 dollars, for every such offence,-and a further sum of one dollar, for each day he shall so harbour or employ such person, whether knowing or not knowing him or her to be illegally at large:-we, to show our anxiety for the general good, intend to henceforth compile and publish a Weekly Supplement to this Journal; in which, with other useful matter gratuitously furnished, we shall regularly introduce a correct list of Absentees.

Away says How-d'y-do, your mien Appals my cheerful nature, No name so sad as your's is seen In sorrow's nomenclature. Whene'er I give one sun-shine hour, Your cloud comes o'er to fade it; Where'er I plant one bosom flow'r Your mildew drops to fade it. Ere How-d'y-do has tuned each tongue. To Hope's delightful measure, Good-bye in friendship's ear has rung The knell of parting pleasure ! From sorrows past my chemic skill Draws smiles of consolation ; Whilst you, fjoni present joys distil, The tears of separation ! Good-bye replied, your statement's tiue, And well your cause you've pleaded ; But pray, who'd think of How-d'y do,   Unless Good-bye preceded ? Without my prior influence Could your's have ever flourished ? And can your hand on flower dispense Hut those my tears have nour...
