TASMANIAN WINE. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 9 January 1829

TASMANIAN WINE.     The following is the extract of a letter from a wine merchant in London to the late Mr. B. Broughton, deceased, who, some time ago, sent home a quantity of grape wine, the produce and manufacture of this Island. The informa- tion which the letter contains will doubtless be useful to many other persons who may at any future period feel disposed to send to their friends in England a cask of wine of their own making. "Dear Sir,- I went with your much respect- ed father some time back, to inspect and taste at the London Docks a cask of wine, and some stone bottles of wine which you had shipped   him as a specimen of the produce of your Settle- ment. I am sorry to say, that in consequence of the wine having been put into the bottles in too early a stage, that the fermentation, added to the insufficiency of the corks, had caused all the wine to escape, excepting about a wine glass in one bottle ; but, from that small quantity, un-...

Supreme Court. LAUNCESTON, JANUARY 5, 1829. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 9 January 1829

Supreme Court     LAUNCESTON, JANUARY 5, 1829.   This day the Civil Court held its first Sittings at   this place. The first case called was Lette v. Maclachlan ; in which a verdict was given for   the plaintiff. The next case was Barnes v. Naylor and others. In consequence of some informa-     lity this cause was not decided, but ordered to stand over.       Gellibrand v. Field.     This was an action for a breach of contract on speciality, for the non-delivery of 950 bushels of wheat in July last ; when wheat was on the rise, but such rise being a temptation to the de- fendant to decline the fulfilment of his contract, the present action was brought, and a verdict returned for the plaintiff for £237.   Birrell v. Fereday, Sheriff. This cause, which excited considerable inter- est, was brought for the purpose of rec...

Colonial Times. HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, JANUARY 9, 1829.     In congratulating our fellow Colonists last week, upon the revocation of the Newspaper License Act, we were not prepared to say whether,the been so granted by His Majesty to this Colony, emanated from the Administration at home, with- out reference to the remonstrances sent to England in the ship Lang, by the twenty-four Gentlemen,   who took such an active and patriotic part upon the occasion. Whether or not, we will leave our readers to decide, although; we may conclude that the Address from those Gentlemen rmust have been received long before Sir George Murray's dis- patch left England, intimating His Majesty's in- structions, as it is notorious that the Address was   not only noticed in many of the London Papers, but also in several of the Provincial Journals. In the dispatch written by Sir George Murray, the   Secretary of State for the Colonies, to Lieuten...

Commissariat Tenders. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 16 January 1829

Commissariat Tenders. It appears, that the Commissariat Tenders in the Sister, a» well as in this Colony, for the supply of fiesh meat, &c. for the use of Government, have been extended for so long a period as twelvemonths. The alarming effects whirh this mode of tender had given rise to throughout the Colony, in- ' ddced the President and Members of the Agricultural Society ' to assemble at a special meeting, to take the same into con- sideration. The result was, that the President, Sir Jons Jamison, tC. C. B. addressed a letter to General Darliao, upon the subject; which had the desired effect of leducing the period from twelve to six months. As we ore convinced the present mode of. tender ia this Colon), being for t* el ia months,' is, as might be expected, likely t» be of incalen» lable injury to the honest grasier, inasmuch as those who have obtained de tenders for supplying the large contracte, are nothing less than butchers and cattle dealers, that His Excellency Lieu...

Van Diemen's Land Company. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 16 January 1829

Van Diemen's Land Company. This great Agricultural Company has at Iength commenced to meddle in mercantile affairs. The ships Timaranda and Lady Rowena, which have arrived during the week in this   port, were chartered by the Van Diemen's Land Company, for the purpose of bringing out sheep to this Island. They   have, however, imported in these vessels, in direct violation   of Earl BATHURST'S conditions, expressed by letter to them, under date 15th April, 1825, a quantity of iron and salt, for the purpose of sale in the Hobart Town market; to which effect, a letter was sent by several of the Mer chants, immedi- ately after the arrival of the vessels, and before they were entered at the Naval Office, to the Colonial Secretary, pro- testing against the said goods being landed at this or any other port in the Island, inasmuch as the same would be of the greatest injury to the mercantile and trading interest, and entirely at variance with Earl Bat...

Mysterious Occurrence. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 23 January 1829

Mysterious Occurrence. We have this week the painful task of recording another death by drowning. Although the circumstances connected with the case appear strange and mysterious, we cannot in any way advance an opinion opposite to the verdict of the Coro- ner's Jury, who, by the protracted decision, evinced opinions with ourselves, that a more than usual degree of suspicion was attached to the death of the unfortunate individual in question—suspicion, amounting to a fear that a foul murder had been committed. However, after a long, tedious, and strict investigation, and a scrutinizing cross-examination of the witnesses upon the case, the Jury, after an adjourned meeting of upwards of six hours, returned a verdict of— "Found drowned, not known how the death happened." Too   much praise cannot be given to the Coroner and those Gentle- men composing the Jury, for the judicious, patient, and in- defatigable investigation of this melancholy affair ; and let us hope their de...
