Hobart Town. FRIDAY, MARCH 17, 1825. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 18 March 1825

tm Hobart Town FRIDAY, MARCH 17, 1825. Our Readers will gladly perceive, by an Act of Council which will be published in our next, that the Colonial Legislature have mqst properly suspended so much of a previous Law or Ordinance, as tendered' the signature of a parochial Minister in New South Wales and Van Diemen's Land respectively, a requisite to every victual- ler's certificate, for grounding his claim to a beer or spirit license. When we first read that Ordinance it very forcibly struck us as altogether non-calculated to effect any benefit; but, as admirably; tending by palpable and inevitable instrumentality to produce three, if not mpre, positive dis- advantages. We knew that if pne clasi? of ?colonial tradesmen had peculiar reasons for " faeiug dissatisfied at the harsh íestrictions imposed on their effoits-that class con- sisted of the publicans ; who, viewed on the aggie^ate were respectable, by_ whom the local Revenue was in no trifling degree augmented, but against whose ...

.- 1/1/1/ To the EDITOR. ?Fin,-Tt would be wasting too much of your \aluable >pace, and besides insulting you, after your avowal in last week's lJaper, to advert to grievances which have already been so weil stated by your Correspondents, without a single answer to even shadow forth a refutation. I view this as impossi- ble ; but I cannot help respectfully recom- mending it to His Honor the Lieutenant Go- vernor, as an act of imperative expediency, to cause the present practice at the Bonded warehouse to be immediately revised. The limited time at present fixed, of an hour or so, on two days in the "week,-Monday and Thursday,-is"found very inconvenient and inadequate by the Merchants, and often at- tended with the loss of a country customer, Avho arrives in town on Tuesday, w hen stock on hand is exhausted, and cannot wait tiil Thursday ; especially, because, before a basket of tobacco can be got out, there must be a deposit for duties ; then-and not till then-the door is opened ...

To the EDITOR. SIR,~AS the day business seems the best now going in this once promising Settle- ment,! have been induced to turn my thoughts that way, with the hope of eking out a live- lihood for my young family, and in order to guide me, pray be so good as to astertain, with your usual kindness to the poor Colo- nist, what description of proof is necessary to exempt toys from the duty of 15 percent, on foreign manufactured goods.-I am unfor- tunately one of the proscribed, but you being a favourite with the official characters here, can probably learn whether the importation by the Admiral Cockburn, now on sale in Elizabeth-street, paid the ad valorem, duty of 15 per cent. ;--if so, it is a happy thing for our adopted country to have so much patriotism m office-of course disdaining trade as they do, they do not recur to it for gain, and our great Civil Officers can con- descend to become toymen only to encrease the Revenue, now at such a low ebb. -'1 am, Sir, yours sincerely, A SH...

-vuu To the EDITOR, SIR,-I beg leave, through the medium of your Paper, to make the following observa- tions, respecting the existing regulations of forwarding Letters to and From" the Hobart Town Post Office, to the several Townships and Districts. In the first place, Mr. Collicott, Postmas- ter, receives the postage of all Letters sent to and from Hobart Town, leaving no emo- lument to the Chief District Constables, or those appointed at the out-stations to receive the Mail Bag, to encourage or compensate them in any shape whatever for their trou- ble, although it is a situation not at all con- nected with the Police Establishment. I further beg to observe, that if those at the out-stations were to be in some way or other paid for their trouble, it would encou- rage correspondence, and be the means of saving many pounds to individuals, particu- larly those indebted to the Hobart Town Merchants, who might have it in their power to answer a Lawyer's letter in time to stop a law proc...

And first I see,' with infant grace, His soft hand'stroke his mother's face, And anxious look, as if to trace If smile were there! Then next he'll use his little feet, And fearful go half way to meet His doaiing father, who'll him cheat Quite cross the room ! And then will come the gift of speech, And early will his father teach Ilim quick to act, and slow to preach, As wise men should !

-UUU-' To the EDITOR. Sin,-A rumour has been lately circulated that the Resident Assistant Chaplain pur- poses to commence legal proceedings against a' writer in your columns^ signing himself k' Iiusticus." This is as it should be. It brings matters to the test. Whichever of the two methods, action or information, may bo adopted, -till things will come out, if they exist,-and if they do not, the calumniator ought to be punished. If an action is brought, the matter is put at issue, and the charges being entirely local and recent, capable of proof or disproof, this will probably be the course adopted, being the most proper one. If howrever information is had recourse to, the preliminary ailidavit of the prosecutor that the accusations are false will leave it still in the power of the accuser to prove his I assertions, if he can do so. -i am, Sir, yours, &c ENQUIHEK.

-uuu To the EDITOR. Sin,-In perusing your interesting Paper of the loth, my attention was particuhuly arrested, on seeing a statement of the depo- sitions taken before A. W. H. Humphrey, Esq.; wherein it is asserted, that I lumb, a late servant of ours, was compelled to join the bush-rangers, on account of bad treat- ment received from his masters, and ni conf sequence of his being a .. good man." It has been a subject of* much remark that so serious a charge should lind its way into the Public I'ress., unless it had been more fully established than merely by the^qath ol' a mau w;ho would doubtless, not only, impli- cate kia masttrs, but, if possible, "half the Colony, ii he thought it would in the tfeii&t measure mitigate his punishment.

Reason," yet it may be possibly useful, that even that production, imbecile as it is, should not pass _ unobserved, if merely to point out its futility ; and this you'have ren- dered almost unnecessary, by your introduc- tory comments, and by the expiessive mono- syllable, which you applied to the conclud- ing passage, of the silly and contemptible threat, you so properly exposed ; a few words however shall suffice.

FRIDAY, MARCH 25, 1825. Nothing conduces more effectually to ruin and demoralize a people, than insecu- rity attached to its possessions, and a con- sequent assurance that the rogue may de- fraud, or the tyrant ravage, willi impunity. "Whilst, wherever just and beneficial laws are with promptitude and punctuality ad- ministered-where, the weak know they have a bulvvark in jurisprudence, and the poor man can legally exact his hard-earned pittance from the grasp of avarice, dignity will spread with independence, and pru- dence keep their company.-The trades- man will feel glad whilst he plies his call ing, that its recompence may be relied on ; -the domestic will perform his duties with- out murtnering-, if convinced that when his term shall have expired, his purse will glit- ter with the produce of his past submission ; -and all or many of those who otherwise would prodigally Mraste their stipend, will deposit it on good security and interest, or wisely invest it in some pursuit, whi...
