Postscript. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 20 May 1825

$O0t*«ipt 'Extracts from the Letter of our Launces- ton Correspondent, dated the 16th instant : " I am credibly informed, that Donald McLeod, the worshipful grogman at Tallisker, although twice fined for selling spirits with- out a licence, has not paid one dollar in li- quidation 'of the penalties, 'whereas other persons if convicted of a similar offence, would be compelled to' pay the uttermost farthing within 8 days; or subject their goods and chattels to an'éxecution !-But on mature thought why should this surprise me, when, as Shakespeare says, " plate sin with gold, and the strong arm of justice harmless breaks; arm it in rags, a pigmy - Straw doth pierce it thoroughly !" "The Gaol is full of prisoners waiting to   be tried, and of pitiable debtors, who are quite destitute, and but merely able to drawl on a life Of uselessness and agony by the alms of official compassion. God help them !" " Tallisker is a cluster of beetling rocks on a desolate part of the Scottis...

To His Honor Lieutenant Governor Arthur, &c. &c. &c. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 20 May 1825

To the EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 20 May 1825

To the EDITOR. SIR--I was much delighted at perusing in a late number of that truly useful Paper, "The Australian", an account of festivities attend- ing the races. Your brother Editor, Sir, is a man of judgment, and of humour. His vin- dication of the course is admirable ! It plea- singly reminded me of happier hours than I have yet experienced in Van Diemen's Land. It had a smack of British gaiety, and demon- strated, I think, in a manner at once witty, pathetic, and gentlemanlike, that sport is not, "necessarily", what our would-be-saints describe it, "crime"; but powerfully calculated   to diffuse a much desired spirit of social ten- derness, and to amalgamate those classes which, let pride say what it may, are reci- procally dependent, I hope, Sir, most earnestly that again and again until becoming success reward your patriotic efforts, you will plead for races in this Colony-which dates its elevation from your independence, and which clings to you as the residuary...

TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 20 May 1825

TO CORRESPONDENTS. " The Men and the Louse, a fable," is neither grammatically accurate, nor sentimentally respectable. We therefore pronounce its rejection, and beg that the Author will never again insult us, by an effusion which be palpably designs to operate against those becoming principles of submission to just Authority, and attachment to the Constitu- tion, that ever have distinguished us. Mr. Abraham's excellent letter is unavoidably postponed ; but he will perceive we have more than read it. " A Frieud to Justice" shall appear in our next number. -ooo DIED-On Saturday last, RICHARD PHILLI- MORE-, aged 81. This poor old man, alike distinguishable for industry and upright con- duct, was one of the first who landed at Sydney, and at Norfolk Island ; the first who ever received a certificate of freedom in these Colonies ; the first who ever turned grain into His Majesty's Stores at Norfolk Island; and the first who partook of that grain in the rations allowed by Government.

Hobart Town. FRIDAY, MAY 20, 1825. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 20 May 1825

Hobart Town. FRIDAY, MAY 20, 1825. It is, and ever has been, the enviable fate of those who independently advocate the common- weal, to be assailed by rancorous traduction ! We, therefore, are not surprised, nor in any degree afflicted, that the Servile senior press of New South Wales should malignly distort our freedom into licentiousness,add attain our loy- alty; because we are not parasites. To be re- viled for performing our important duties, we shall uniformly deem an honour. And so long as we create no foes, except by opposing abuse, exploding folly, or execrating guilt, be it known that enmity will gratify us. Cant, we are com- pelled to observe, is much too fashionable; and-flattery supersedes candour in the darling avenue to patronage. These truths (and O ! are they not painful?) have of late received most disgusting illustrations ! The Sydney Ga- zette has for the last few months been pampered by the crumbs of official bounty ; and for what, except licking with a morbid to...

-000 To the EDITOR. Stn,--! have heard that some of the new Justices are mightily vexed with the obser- vations of " A Landholder" in your last.-. Hudibras says*-» " When caps amongst a crowd are thrown, 44 What fits each man he calls his own." This may be well applied if the above is a fact, but " A Landholder" has made a mis- take by asserting that' all the Gentlemen re- commended by the late Lieutenant Governor are excluded j there is one in the list, and only one. It really is a matter of surprise that not one resident* in Hobart Town, who is not,a Government Ofiicer, is in the new Commis- sion, This is a great injustice to the Mer- chants, more particularly as the Magistrates are called upon to sit as assessors in the Su- preme Court, where, as in one of your lead pig articles is stated, questions of a mercan- tile nature ought to be determined by Mer- chants only, and not by the Civil or Military Officers, who of all others are least fitting to decide on questions which might ...

To the EDITOR. SIR,-I amta plain man, and I write for information, and" not to interfere with the disputes of the Hydra, the Savage, or the acting Naval Officer. I want to understand the meaning of the present plan of trial "by what is called the Quarter Sessions, and which appears to me to be the old Sench of Magistrates new revived.-In Sngland, whenever the Quarter Fessions are held, I have been accustomed, together with my neighbours ia that part of the coun- try where I resided, to be summoned as Jurymen ; and I came up to Hobart Town in the hope of seeing something of ,the iiort here, and particularly as I had read in the Sydney Newspapers, that there had been terrible squabbles about Jurymen amongst the great folks there. However, I wentiiito Court, and I saw plenty of Justices, but no Jury. Now, Mr. Editor, what I want to lùiow is this ; both Colonies are governed by, (he same laws, which I am told originate in the same Act of Parliament. If therefore the people at Sydney hav...

To the EDITOR. SIR.-It would amuse your Readers were I to furnish them with an account of the qualifications for Magisterial dignity pos- sessed by the disappointed Landholder who has, in the last Gazette, with so little cere- mony attacked the lately made Justices of the Peace for this Colony : but I will let him rest in his hiding-place, and confine my« self to one or two remarks on what he writes, The Landholder complains, that the com. mission of the peace does not contain one of the names^recoramended by the late Lieu- tenant Governor. Unless the Landholder will favour us with those names, the Public cannot judge which of the two sell ctions is best. But it is much co be wished that the name of Colonel Sorell were allowed to rest in peace ; for the continued use of it for the worst of purposes, and bv persons who re- probated every act of his administration while he was amongst us ; may ultimately force some lover of truth to enter the lists with those radical Gentlemen (as the...

He waited according to order on the clerk for his ration, but was told to call again at 2 o'clock; at that time therefore he repeated hjs application, when the same person told him he had lost the. order and required him to get another. The poor fellow went away to procure one, but when he reached the i Lumber-yard the office was shut ! So that after doing his Government work, not being ac- quainted with the inhabitants of Ho...
