Hobart Town. FRIDAY, APRIL 8, 1825. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 8 April 1825

Hobart Town FRIDAY, APRIL 8, 1825   ---------------------           Many reports respecting the Valetta have been most industriously circulated ; and, per- haps, they are unfounded. However, no harm can accrue from our mentioning, that one of them describes the vessel and cargo to be American property; whilst another states her to have no license for the traffic in which she   has been recently engaged. Let these reports   however,be understood but as such. It is possible that they have been promulgated merely through a lack of superior amusement, and in direct contravention of veracity. In- deed as we here may opportunely notice, un- supported rumours never rank amid oui fa- vourites, for if they did, we might week after week fill our pages with them. But as tea constitutes so important an article of importa- tion, we regret that our own Merchants su-   pinely allow ...

To the EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 8 April 1825

To the EDITOR.     SIR,-On examining your Supplement to the Hobart Town Gazette, I could, not pass unnoticed the small sums offered as rewards for taking prisoners at large, particularly M'Cabe, who stands so, deep in the list of   crime, and murder in particular. I see no in- ducement to that class of people which has the most probability of apprehending him, either by force or stratagem, to run much risk for the sum of ten pounds, as that will go but a very short way to remunerate any party or person for loss of time and expense, in parti- cular when far in the country , where a com- mon journey cannot be performed for less. A Bow-street Officer would be ill satsfied   with less for crossing from Middlesex to Sur- rey, in search of John, the footman for taking a few naughty liberties with the lady's maid, and absconding to avoid the unmerciful pains and penalties of the grave three-cocked-hat gentlemen of the parish, who would dr...

To the EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 8 April 1825

To the EDITOR. SIR,-Through the medium of your Ga- zette, I beg leave to enquire whether there is a pardon, either free or conditional, for the apprehension of the murderers, Brady and McCabe,--it being generally believed that the only reward is ten pounds. If there be an emancipation or any such indulgence, surely it should be inserted in the runaway notice published by you. - I am sir, your obedient servant, X.Y.2,

To the EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 8 April 1825

TO THE EDITOR.     SIR,- I perceive that the literary warfare lateley commenced by some of your Corres- pondents is still carried on with unabated vi- gour by both parties, and that every succeed- ing Letter, instead of giving a finishing blow, not only gives rise to further contentions, but occupies that space in your Journal   Which might be employed for more useful purposes. The author of the few following lines has for his sole object the public   good. I trust, therefore, that they may be favoured with insertion in you next. Un- fortunately the most daring robberies are committed night after night in Hobart Town with the utmost impunity, and of course the Government as usual is blamed; but cannot some easy method be hit upon, cannot some plan be adopted that may ensure protection of property, as well as personal safety. In a         town where there are not less than three th...

Sydney Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 8 April 1825

Sydney Intelligence We have received Sydney Papers to the 24th ult. 'The Australian states, that a requi- sition had been sent by the land-holders, mer- chants, and others, to the Sheriff, to convene a public meeting of those classes of people in the colony, for the purpose of taking into consideration the propriety of petitioning Par- liament, on the late importations of the ship Almorah, and other matters connected with the interests of the colony. But the Sheriff being of opinion that a requisition to call such a meeting ought to state specifieally and par ticularly the subjects intended to be brought forward by the requisitionists, refused to ac- cede to their request, and on grounds which were considered to be fair and reasonable. Another requisition, free from the objections of the former, was however contemplated, and likely to be approved of by the Sheriff.-Au- stralia is (if we may believe the Sydney Gazette) a most delightful place for emigrants ; in illus- tration of whic...

Tasmanian Aborigines. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 8 April 1825

Tasmanian Aborigines However verging on brutality, or destitute of energies to render them respectable, the sa- ble natives of Van Diemen's Land may be ab surdly considered by those who do not know the real impress on their character, and the ruling passion which they lack but ability to exhibit; we boldly venture without fear of encountering a refutation to describe them as comprising a very superior mental grade   and as calculated, to prove either an eminent blessing or a fatal scourge to their fair complexioned fellow-creatures. We shall not however presumingly test the wild and gothic minded savage, by the standards applicable to man whom habit has innoculated with a second nature perhaps more powerful than his first, and who hence is either [vir-] tuous or otherwise by force of precept [and] example, entirely remote from their [conse-] quences. We will not cruelly arraign [the]  heathen at Christianity's tribunal; nor [gr him with anti-religious denunciations, [be...

To the EDÍTOÚÍ Sí«,-I beg leave to offer you a few re- marks upon the indiscriminate use winch has been lately made amongst us of one of the most " respetable" words in the English lan- guage. 1 mean, Sir, the word " P"irlue." 1 shall begin with referring to a poor devil who lives in my neighbourhood, who was a few dajrs ago sold off' (as is the phrase) by " virtue" of a writ of execution ; and the Sheriff's Bailiff duiing the time he was in pos- session, stated very " modestly" that all he didj'' was by u virtue" of his office. My friend, Westbrook, is so " afflicted" with the .jarían of the day, that he also talks of the " virtue" of the different medicines v/itb. which he doses my family» Even at the toy shop, the Gentleman who administers the great man's little ware, teijs us of the " vir~ tues" of certain of his puppets in setting children (quew grown children ?) to sleep.

Mal[?]Administration. AT THE CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 15 April 1825

MAL-ADMINISTRATION AT THE CAPE OF GOOD, HOPE. The abuses in the Colonial Administration are become most intolerable and glaring;   and as we have no other object than public utility, we are glad to see that we shall not be left as we have been, unaided in the field, and single-handed, to attack this mod ern Briareus. Our opinions on Colonial abuses and saintly hyporricy are well known to our tenders. On the meeting of Parlia- ment, we shall bring forth our Budget; and, in the mean time, we give from a Morning Paper the following powerful corroboration of'our former statements: If it were the fixed resolution of Mi- nisters to let our costly settlement at the Cape of Good Hope follow the fate of Java, and Surinam, and the Spice Islands-that is, if there existed any secret design to abandon that great colony to Holland, after it had served the immediate turn of furnishing a pretext for huge salaries, with unfathomable prerequisites, to lords and gentlemen high in blood, t...

To the EDITOR. SIR,-The convict-ship. Lady East having   arrived in this Port, with two hundred and eight convicts to be assigned to applicants who have the means of supporting them without any assistance from Government.   I was not a little surprised to see at the   place of assignment many persons, well known not to possess the means of maintain- ing themselves and their families, applying for convicts, to be assigned to. them, on the conditions abovel stated. And that their ap-   plication was granted in preference to that of more respectable persons who had suffi- cient capital to employ convict labourers to advantage, and who would ensure that   Government should have no cause of complaint,   relative to the way in which their servants should be cloathed and victualled. Mr. Editor, I cannot help thinking and lament- ing that most of the evils we complain of, particularly respecting our being continua...

Hobart Town. FRIDAY, APRIL 15, 1825. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 15 April 1825

Hobart Town FRIDAY, April 15, 1825. ----------- If this Colony were destitute of timber ap- plicable to ship-building, or if sealing voyages were on an average unproductive,-we should not be surprised that so few Colonial vessels are employed in speculative voyages around the coast; but as our forests abound with the first, and as especially the latter are known by all who have ever tried them to be in most in- stances more advantageous than any other ad- venture, we are compelled to reprobate the apathy to which in a principal degree the trading classes of Van Diemen's Land may ascribe their comparative penury. To the same disgraceful cause, also, we cannot avoid im- puting a countless multitude of those offences, which ignominous death and useless captivity at most but nominally expiate : for, were the wandering propensities which sway the lower rank of all European societies to be judiciously   indulged, those men who time after time, like withered leaves, drop off m...
