Hobart Town. FRIDAY, MAY 6, 1825. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 6 May 1825

HOBART TOWN. FRIDAY, MAY 6, 1825. Although certainly not disposed to litigate about trifles, or to fling the missiles of distem- pered animadversion at honourable men or sa- lutary measures, yet we must chronicle our protest against every proceeding which, in our view, militates against the Public. And with unqualified censure therefore we are bound to notice "the Court of Requests, or ra- ther the mode in conformity to widen its ope- rations are to be conducted. With the mot- ives that induced the establishment of it, we do not interfere except to admit our reliance on their purity. It happens however most un- fortunately that as a wise parent may have a silly offspring-, so the worthiest design may be   marred by injudicious and injurious conse-   quences. Another thing is equally certain, that whether the intent with which the Court   of Requests has been established, was posi- tively good, comparatively wise, or superla-   tive...

MAJOR CARTWRIGHT'S WILL. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 6 May 1825

MAJOR CARTWRIGHT'S WILL   The following is a curious extract   the will of this eccentric but well-meant gentleman :-     The will of the venerable Major Carter passed under the seal-of the Prerg.... Court of Canterbury, the personal efffects sworn to be under 800l. The following markable clause appears therein :- "To .. country anxiously desiring her welfare I leave a fervent wish for such necessary   and salutary reforms in her institution ... would not only restore her lost freedom ... purify from the odiousness and debase... of unfaithfulness and corruption, all .. public departments. By a complete restoration of her genuine polity (which I have   deavoured to place before her eyes), she may in my humble judgment, so correct the .... als and the habits of her people, as to establish on a solid and enduring basis, her future   liberty, prosperity, and renown. To th¡s she must cease to follo...

To the President of the Agricultural Society. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 13 May 1825

To the President of the Agricultural Society. SIR,-I have often been surprised that no plan has ever been recommended at the An- nual Meeting for the b. tter security of live stock, sheep particularly, as there are such great depredations committed on the.Hocks, that without something is done to prevent it, it wijl proye ruinous to all the flock-owners ; but one robbery after another seems to be passed over as an expected occurrence, auíj all that is done or can be done at present is for the unfortunate owner to exert himself fora day or two, to endeavour -lo discover which way they have been driven-generally without discovery. . / 1 have given'it often my most serious at tention, the results of which 1 shall mention, hoping some better plan may be adopted, for the discovery as well Us the^convictiou of the offenders.

Sydney News Sir THOMAS BRISBANE, our respected Go- vernor, has long had his retirement in con- templation, and therefore has been expect- ing that which is now reported shortly to take place.

SIR,-Amidst the violent effusions of party spirit which have of late so much filled the columns of your Gazette, to the exclusion of other matter both of amusement and instruc- tion, I am afraid the subject on which I have taken the liberty briefly to address you will be considered by your Political Readers dull and uninteresting. But as I am convinced of its utilty, and of the ease with which it might be carried into execution, I am re- solved, notwithstanding the frowns and cen- sures of Tasmanian Critics, to appear before the Public, through the medium of your Paper, with a hope that the few weak argu- ments which I may adduce will lead the more enlightened Colonists to carry into effect those much-to-be-desired Institution,-a Public Li- brary, and Literary Society.

Hobart Town. FRIDAY, MAY 13, 1825. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 13 May 1825

HOBART TOWN FRIDAY, MAY 13, 1825. An eminent stafcsman (we believe Lord Chatham) was once heaid to declare, that the abusés of subordinate official authoiity were more fatally opeiative on public allegiance, than wdie the most despotic measures that ever emanated from a Monarch or his Coun- sellors. Be this as it ma3r, those abuses ought not moie than othet to exist. Aud if, conse- quently, we can show not only that they do exist in this Colony, but that their effects are in the highest degree subversive of penal dis- cipline and public morality, we can show enough to justify executive proceedings for the necessaiy puipose of inducing amendment. That Crown prisoneis should attend the or- dinances of Religion has been wisely and be- nevolently ordered by the Legislature. That their omission to do so, has been decreed an oiFence for corpoieal punishment is notorious. But that many who are absentees not simpl} once noi twice, but who thioughout the year never deign to appear at Sunday ...

Î must acknowledge that I have been some- what amazed that no enquiry has been di- rected (which could be done on the spot in a few hours) to ascertain the correctness of the definite assertions of a writer in your Paper, styled " Ruslicus," respecting the manner in which artificers and labourers have been employed on the Parsonage Lands .at Clarence Plains. In order to ascertain the facts, I a few days since proceeded to that interesting Settlement, and made the most diligent enquiries araoygst the most respec- table Settlers there, and others well ac- quainted with the subject, and found that the statements of Rusticus nave been incon trovertibly correct, and can be well vouch- ed; but what particularly astonishe...
