Hobart Town. FRIDAY, APRIL, 22, 1825. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 22 April 1825

Ityàfrivt fötmt» FRIDAY,, APRIL, 22, 3825. . A'1 Íníant«le Colony ¡s in our opinion like a tender* bud.; which, unless protected by especial care and nourishedJ>'y luxuriating culture, will scarcely attain desirable ma- turity;-We are therefore always solicitous to urge'the official" adoption of every plan calculated to re-nan^ £he drooping ener- gies of Van Diemen's ' Land,; and to even- tually realize those sanguine expectations vjhieh have' induced the majority of our most respectable Settlers to bid theirnative land a long, a last adieu ! That many such expectations have been wild, irrational, and nearly meritorious of disappointment, we believe is indisputable; but that as many of them might be now justified by a' vAse, beneficent, and salutary administra tion of the Island we dare to avow as our conviction. Nevertheless we do not wish io be understood, as .aiming by these re , marks, to censura as intentionally bad the present Government^ for, on the reverse, we believe', a...

On the Origin and Communication of Smut in Wheat. To the EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 22 April 1825

On the origin and Communication of Smut in   Wheat.               To the Editor.     Sir,-The following little dissertation on a subject which has been so long the theme of philosophy, evasive of esperimental research, and hardly within the reach of rational investigation, is respectfully submitted to yoor consideration.-Whether any of those   learned bodies which continue to adorn Europe and the world at large, by their practical knowledge, as well as by the depth of scientific enquiry, will condescend to honor it with their perusal, I do not know the conclusion they may draw from the premises I have here presumed to advance, will not, I am con fident be allowed to militate against any opi- ion hitherto entertained respecting this sub- tance, as mysterious, as it has hitherto been   destructive.--Permit me, then, Sir, to apprize...

Supreme Court. Crowther v. Carns. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 22 April 1825

Supreme Court. Crowther v. Carns.   This was an action, as stated by His Majes- ty's Attorney General (J. T. GELLIBRAND, Esq.), brought by the plaintiff, a medical Gentleman residing in HobartTown, against the Captain of the ship Cumberland, from London to this port, with passengers and merchandize, of which Mr. John Raine was   the charterer. It appeared in evidence, that the ship left Plymouth the 28th of August, last, and arrived at Rio de Janeiro on the 24th of October. During that period some quarrels ensued amongst the passengers, and in which Captain C. took part. On quit- ting Rio. for this Port, the same angry feelings prevailed, and on the evening of December 20th, as the plaintiff was standing on the poop, the Captain violently forced him thence to the deck, to his most immi- nent danger. The only witness on the part   of the plaintiff was Mr. John Elliott, clerk to Mr. Raine, who fully proved the assault, though five other witnesses...

To the EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 22 April 1825

To the EDITOR. SiR,--There is an old true saying, viz. " Promises and pie-crust are made to be broken." But, with your permission, I will leave off quoting, and begin to apply.   Some time ago, as you and I and every body in Van Diemen'sLand must with a sigh   remember, numerous condemned delinquents pined through many a dreary week in the Hobart Town Gaol, alternately crying for provision and for death. It happened that a certain stout, tall, dark   visaged, surly-spoken person, whose pro- fession no man more deeply than myself can venerate, heard those cries, and immediate- ly afterwards said to the Gaoler, who, by the bye, is a very good sort of man ;--'' Mr. B., procure from your baker a daily supply of sufficient bread (beyond Government al- lowance) for those poor men ; and when the bill amounts to a few pounds, let me know the sum total, and I will discharge it !" So far good. Well, the bread was consumed, and the bill was delivered, and...

Desultory Remarks on eating & drinking. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 29 April 1825

on eating 6f drinking. Rationality being one of the cardinal attri- butes by which man may exalt his pretensions and character over those of the brayin» Ze- bra, the bleating Goat, or the roaring Bull, it might be expected though not to entirely refine his sensual participation of their na- ture, yet at least so far to dignify his taste, as to forbid that being relished as his áum« mum bonum which they could equally enjoy -It might be assumed of an aspiring order which would condescend to imitate them no farther than the preservation of animal ex- istence rendered indisputably needful.-But while mere instinct enables them to nicely discriminate what is suitable in their condi- tion, while their utmost crossness is limited to the only purpose for which it wris associat- ed with their and every other living species, while their selection or rejection of food is constantly judicious, and enough to satisfy hanger is all they will receive,--man their tyrant, lord and master on the contra...

On Poverty. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 29 April 1825

On Poverty Ah! who is he with downcast head, With hollow eyes and tottering tread, And visage pale as fear ? 'Tis Poverty ! I know him well. For with him I've been forced to dwell Full many a dreary year. Mark ! how he shuns the public gaze,   Nor scarcely dares his eyes to raise ! Perhaps, poor mortal, he Dreads to meet some ungrateful friend   Who on him will not deign to bend,     Blind to his Poverty. '   That friend, who in his prosperous days Was foremost in his fame and praise,   Now spurns his misery :-   Lct hin take heed; affliction's steel May reach him yet, and make him feel The smart of Poverty. Ah ! view his raiment patch'd and torn, Which many a bitter blast has borne, (From downy nap quite free,) 0 ! spare ye winds affliction's child ; Ah ! blow less bleak, more gently, mild. On hapless Poverty ! Perhaps, his early life was fraught   With gilded prospects brought t...

King's Birth Day. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 29 April 1825

* Ring'« tSivtl) J9ai>. On Saturday" last, His Majesty^ frj&nds dined together at Stodart's Hotel, in Mac quarie-street. And we are bound to say that a more numerous,, respectable, or social par- ty never assembled in Van Diemen's Land. The President's Chair was admirably occu- pied by A. F. KEMP, Esq. whilst that of the | Vice was with equal propriety graced by JOHN GRANT, Esq. The snowy damask of .the festal board, was pressed by-^ every lux- ury.* No pains, expense, or skill had been jspared by the truly hospitable caterer ; and but one spirit prevailed at the banquet, viz. a spirit of patriotic happiness. Immediately after the dinner, which was served up in grand style, the Chairman rose, under a salute of twenty-one guns from the Governor Phillips, and prefaced the first bumper toast, with words to the effect fol- lowing : GENTLEMEN,-*-On an occasion like the pre- sent, it is usual for the individual who by your favour is placed in the Chair to intro- duce the toast ...

To the EDITOU. SIR,-Permit me, through the medium of j your truly impartial columns, to ask á few questions, which, if I am fortunate enough to obtain an answer to, will not only be of infinite service, to myself, but to the Public iu general. Very recently, certain persons have made their appearance in Hobart Town, styling.' themselves Architects and Surveyors.' However far they, may be right in assuming that character, I leave their works to deter ;miiie.-I, should very much wish to know how those truly scientific characters that have an establishment to keep'up, according to their, self-exalted rank, can possibly erect buildings and provide .materials for a much less sum than the actual labour of the differ- ent mechanics would come to at a most mo- derate calculation.--Perhaps their motives are philanthropic; if so, they deserve the greatest praise. Many Surveyors enter into a contract with a full determination of break- ing it, which 'they haye many opportunities of doing durin...

To the Editor SIR, -A number of articles have appeared in your columns on the subject of the new Colonial arrangements, but I do not recol- lect to have observed any thing said about   the Establishment of the second Police Ma- gistrate, an appointment which, if it exists, at any rate, has not been made public. But I suppose the making known t0 us these sorts of matters, like other wholesome regula- tions is growing obsolete, although the Com- missioner of Enquiry, publicly and expressly stated to a number of persons who well re-   member it, that we had a " right" to have the accounts of the disposal of our money made known to us. However, Sir, that a second Police Magistrate does exist, I am in- duced to believe from the following circum- stance :- I was present the other day at the truly convivial entertainment which took place at Stodart's Hotel, in honour of the King's Birth-day, when, a little before 12 o'clock, a tall, down-looking, consequential sor...

To the EDITOR. SIR,-Knowing your readiness at all times to give publicity to any matter that may tend to correct abuse, or to point oütí that which is loathsome, I offer for your insertion the following remarks, with <the hope that they may deter those Hydras from a repetition of those foul games so long played off on the Public,' and which, I am sorry to say, not only tend to bring those who have any claim to character to a level with the vicious part of mankind, but also stir up the very worst of feelings between man and man, and strike at the very root of social order arid good government.-We have one huge Hydra, a wretch in the human shape ; whose sole talent appears exclusively devoted to this secret system of warfare ; and so much does this fend excel in this line, that Moore's Worthies of Utop'a are farcical When com- pared to him. Indeed his ramifications are so multifcirious, that to enumerate the whole would be to shut out all matter from your valuable Paper thi...

SIR,-I attended the Public Meeting of the Friends of the Van Diemen's Land Bible So- ciety, and.really I was highly gratified, not with the display of eloquence, although some good speeches were made, not with the de- tail of the exertions of the Committee, or of I the success they had met with, for to these they made no pretensions, but with the num- bers assembled on the occasion.-I do not think that all met to shew their good will to the cause, but on casting my eyes round the room, and carefully marking who were pre- sent, the result of my mental calculation was, that nineteen out of twenty had a hear- ty goodwill to the object'bf the Meeting, and were willing to lend, if not their personal exertions at least their purses to forward its interests. This is so far good. But if we re- flect on the important ends which may be accomplished by the circulation of the Bible, I thiuk many will be induced to bestow a little of, their spare time, as well as spare cash, ...

To the EDITOR. SIR,-Your Correspondent " Zinziber" ap- pears to be a remarkably clever fellow in his own opinion ; but if 1 am to conclude from his Rhapsody of .'' Trash?' and Gallipot La- tin, he must indeed be a " Ninny" of the first magnitude. Like the other replies t^> all statements of grievances, he also makes personal attacks, couched in language coarse and vulgar, and which does not enter into the complaints made by " Se^ex >." but like all scribblers in a bad cause, he resorts to an unmanly attack upon the principles of his opponent ; which are as far above his com- prehension, as his abilities are rendered con- temptible by virulence and party animo- sity !

-000-< To the EDITOR. SIR,-As I understand that you arc " open to all ; but influenced by none !" may I ask why only one action in the Supreme Court was inserted in your valuable Paper last week ? As I was in attendance the latter part of the Term, I am sure you will please the majority of your Readers, if you will give publicity to two others, viz. Stephen v. Crowther, and Stephen J». Raine : Those were most novel and interesting. The account you give of Crowther v. Lams, is what an Attorney calls " varnished, coloured, paint- ed," and .some other pretty names. Capt.-.in Carns has made several voyages to these Co- lonies, and is known to many of the respect- able Inhabitants. 1 am inclined to think, Mr. Editor, that this wonderful " medical gentleman residing in Hobart Town," (which was corroborated hy the evidence) had conducted himself con- trary to the rules of all well regulated ships.
