A Revenue raised by means of a Stamp is collected with such facility, that it is encouraged by most Governments. It appears to be the simplest and leastoppres, sive of all taxes; yet, in the last instance, IT IS THE REVERSE. It grows with the growth, and strengthens with the strength of every State; and it must be kept in memory, that the Stamp Act assisted in separating America from Great Britain. CIVIL SERVANT.

Every man has an undoubted night to lay what sentiments he pleases before the public: to forbid this, is to destroy the freedom of the press; but if he publishes what is improper, mischievous, or illegal, he must take the consequence of his own temerity. To subject the press to the restrictive power of a License, as was formerly done, both before and since the Revolution, is to subject all freedom of sentiment to the prejudices of one man, and make him the arbitrary and infallible judge of all controverted points in learning, religion,and Government. BLACKSTONE. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 28 September 1827

Every man has an undoubted right to lay what sentiments he pleases before the public: to forbid this, is to destroy the freedom of the press ; but if he publishes what is im- proper, mischievous, or illegal, he must take the consequence of his own temerity. To subject the press to the restrictive power of a License, as was formerly done, both be-   fore and since the Revolution, is to subject all freedom of sentiment to the prejudices of one man, and make him the arbitrary and infallible judge of all controverted points in learning, religion,and Government. BLACKSTONE. When printing was first introduced into England, it was considered merely a mat- tet of State, subject to the coercion and   controul of the Grown-regulated by the King's Charter of License, and subsequent- by the Star Chamber itself; which limited the number of Printers, specified the num- ber of presses each should employ, and pro- hibited all publications, which had not been subjected to, ...

Ship News Arrived on Sunday last, the sloop Gover- nor Sorrell, Captain Clementson, ?? ballast-- from Launceston 12 days, having experienced dreadful, bad weather, in which she was dri- ven out to sea 300 miles--lost her chain plates, bulwarks, &c. ; was obliged to lay to for 6 days, and with great difficulty en- tered the river.

GREAT NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 5 October 1827

GREAT NEWS. The sloop Northumberland, which arrived         last night from Sydney, brings us our files of the Sydney Papers. By the arrival of the ship Cambridge, English news has been re- ceived in the elder Colony so late as the 23d May. It appears, that the " new Administra-   tion is now formed in all its departments, the few vacant places having been filled. In or- der to throw the full weight of the Whig inte- rest into the scale of Government, the Mar- quis of Lansdown has accepted a seat in the Cabinet, even without taking office. It is ar- ranged that he is finally to supersede Mr. S. Bourne, as Sectretary of State for the Home   Department; and Mr. Spring Rice is to be the Deputy. The veteran leader of the Whigs in the House of Commons (Mr. Tierney), has ac- cepted the office of Master of the Mint, which thoroughly identifies the full power of the Whig party with the Government. From the &am...

To, the Editor of the Colonial Times. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 5 October 1827

To, the Editor of the Colonial Times. SIR, - Until the other day I had no concep- tion that the local Government had ceased to assign prisoner servant to the Settlers in this Colony, and in lieu thereof to lend them du- ring pleasure, for such time as it " shall think fit, as the new Act says. This, however, I have found to be the case, by actual expe- rience. - Having obtained the other day per- mission to receive a Crown servant, as I   thought an assigned 'one, I was very much surprised, when instead of the usual memo- randum of assignment, I was presented with a paper of which the following is a copy, mere- ly signifying that J. T. Was LENT to my ser- vice : " Principal Superintendent's Office.. " I hereby certify, that J. T. is lent to the service of W. H. subject to his execu- ting, on demand, such bond, containing such condition as shall be prepared and tendered for that purpose. ,.

Colonial Times. HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, OCTOBER 5, 1827. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 5 October 1827

HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, OCTOBER 5, 1827. Never was the want of a Representative Assembly so much felt by the People of Tas- mania, as at the present moment. Such an Assembly, by constituting a link of connec- tion in the political chain, would prevent many of those frightful chasms, which often- times appear between the wishes of the Go- vernment and the wishes of the People, from taking place. Of all, these, there never was one in Van Diemen's Land equal to that oc- casioned by the new Acts, respecting COLO- NIAL NEWSPAPERS. Every one is crying out -some against the Stamp Tax-others against the License on the Free Press!-some against   the British, others against the local Govern- ment. Our office was never so much the em- porium of public opinion as it has been du- ring the present week. Persons, out of num- ber, have communicated with us, in conse- quence of our brief remarks last week ; which we trust have told, as well upon the minds of the Lieutenant Governor and his...

Colou[?]al Times. HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, OCTOBER 12, 1827. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 12 October 1827

HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, OCTOBER 12, 1827. By the arrival ot the Orelia and Mary, we have received English Papers to the 9th of June-being a fortnight later date than our English news of last week, (announcing the permanent establishment of the New Minis- try) via New South Wales. So important a subject as the re-formation of the English Constitution, after its dissolution, in conse- quence of the political death of Lord Liver- pool, cannot fail to excite the liveliest in- terest in the public mind.-Our present pre- scribed limits supersede the possibility of our doing that justice to the subject which it de- mands, or that we could wish. We, how- ever, hasten to give the substance of the most interesting intelligence connected with the political affairs of Europe. The princi- pal question which seems to have agitated the public mind was, whether the New Mi- nistry will stand? We, so far as we are able to judge from the materials of which we are in possession, have little hesitation in ...

Earopean Intelligence. ENGLISH. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 12 October 1827

European Intelligence ENGLISH. His Majesty, we are happy to state, was enjoying good health. The King was at the Horse Guards, as Commander-in-Chief, regu- larly three times a week, transacting Military business. His Majesty was frequently out riding with his Royal Sister, the Queen of Wirtemburg. This extraordinary activity and condescension, in a Monarch, at so ad- vanced a period of life, is a thing unprece- dented in the annuls of English History ; and has, as may be naturally expected, gained him the extreme popularity. His Majesty honored Ascot Races with his presence on the 12th of June, accompa- nied by his Royal Sister, Her Majesty the Dowager Queen of Wirtemburg. Lord Liverpool's health was so "far re- stored as to enable him to take an airing in his carriage. The income of the official situation of Mr. Tierney, as the Master of the Mint, is from nine to £10,000 a year.     A son of Mr. Tierney was to have a seat at the Board of Excise. &n...

New South Wales. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 12 October 1827

New South Wales Among other schemes, got up during the late fever of speculation, was an Agricultu- ral Association for cultivating lands in New Holland. From a meeting of this Company, held in London last week, it appears that   they have sent out an agent, (with stores, sheep, &c.) who was well received by the Governor at Sydney, and obtained a grant of a million of acres. After due enquiry, he had, fixed,on Port Stephens as the site of the set- tlement) a place about 80 or 90 miles north of Port Jackson, and affording an excellent harbour. The agent, Mr. Dawson, describes the spot, as consisting of a chain of low hills, backed by some of a more majestic height, well adapted to the feeding of sheep. The directors seem to rely on the sale of wool for reimbursing their expenses. They have confidential agents employed at present in different parts of Europe, in making experi-     ments to ascertain what sort of sheep are most likely to b...
