The Convict. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 27 August 1830

The Convict.     That ship must voyage half the world -     The convict far away must go;               His deed was as the darkest night,         And justice frowning in his sight,                   Pronounc'd his sentence so !                 He looks upon hls native fields     At once with love and scorn :   His thoughts are of a foreign land           And comrades toiling on that strand;       Who near his home were born. &amp...

Literary Varieties [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 27 August 1830

, Literary Varieties* We sometimes meet in the world with in- stances of conduct, on the parts of individuals, which it H difficult to trace to any of the usual spiings» of action that .influence the human mind. In one ot our late papers, wé gave an anecdote or two irom the Earl or Bridgwater's family memoir*», exemplifying the force ot this obser \ation, and now propose further to illustrate it by bringing befoie our readers an extraordinary instance'of Seclusion from the world, that took place in the year 1642, and which, considering that the individual was of sound mind, is strictly belouging to the class of whom we have spoken. It is uot^ by any mt ans new to meet with per sons who, tired of the world and of the world's anxieties, retire to solitude, there to brood over the ills of life, and to cherish gall and bit- terness towards mankind in general, and it has been said by some writers that be who does so is either a beast or an angel; we conceive the censure to be equally too...

To the Editor of ¿he Colonial Times.' SIR,-In your Paper of the 20th ultimo'you say, that you regret the constant importation ot butter, and call > upon the inhabitants to discourage the consumption of foreign butter arid cheese, in order " to enable the Settlers to lind a remu- nerating price and demand for their produce." Now, Mr Editor, I am a plain man with a large family, and I own that my patriotism rather leads lue to take pleasure in seeing my half-score youngsters devour plateful nfter plntetul of bread and butter, or now and then a hot buttered toast, with all the delight and aridity I twice a day witness, than pay ttie Settlers double the price for their butter, by woy of giving them encouragement, wlien I can purchase that which is imported, equal in quality, to say the least, to what is made at home. Who, in their common senses I wonder, upon en- tering a %hop and being shewn two tubs of butter, one of which has been imported, and after all espenses of transit, inter...

To the Editor of the Colonial Times. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 3 September 1830

To the Editor of the Colonial Times.     SIR.-By the last received accounts from Sydney, I per-     ceive that it has been decided by the Judges of the Supreme   court of New South Wales, that there is no British Law in   existence which will prevent any person in that Colony, if he   chose, from brewing his own beer-distilling his own brandy, gin, rum, or whiskey-or making his own wine, for the use of his family ; and the Colonial distilleries are, I also observe, in a most thriving state; yet, although such encouragement is there publicly given to all classes of people to distil their own   spirits, brew their own beer, and, in fact, to rely on their own resources for the necessary beverages that custom has intro- duced among mankind ; still, I say Sir, here, on enquiry, I find that I dare not distil two drops of whiskey, without en- dangering myself and my property. Indeed, so much does the...

Junius.                     Much as we are inclined to allow praise to the present Head of our Government for the manner in which he accomplished the establish- ment of the Orphan Schools, and such as we see and learn with regard to their management, which entirely meets our approval, still, we are inclined to think that they might be rendered still more useful than at present, and that they are capable of improvement, as regards their internal regulation. Upon the first point, considering the rapid growth of the Colony-the number of tradesmen and mechanics who are now in full occupation-the numerous families who are in ...

Original Communication. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 3 September 1830

ORIGINAL COMMUNICATION.       Sir, - Your having a few weeks since favoured me by in- serting some observations on the Island of Bourbon, prompts me to hope that you will also allow a space in your columns for the neighbouring Island. If any of your readers dis-   cover aught incorrect in my observations, either caused by carelessness or want of a more competent knowledge of what I am about to treat, I beg to say, that I must claim the same indulgence as most writers of travels are allowed, with one   exception, exaggeration, of which, when treating of so well known a place as the Isle of France, I have no need ; but, although I may not wish to be allowed so useful an ally, in order to make my narrative interesting, still I may fall into outré errors, for the French author who so translated the sign of the green man and still, " L'homme vert et tranquille," was not at the time aware how truly ridiculour the want of a l...

English Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 3 September 1830

English Intelligence. Let the following striking instance, of the     dreadfuí effects of passion be read with the at- tention it deserves : " Stephen Price, a very repulsive-looking man, was indicted for killing and slaying Anne Fairbear, at Chart, in Kent, on the 5th of October last.   " The circumstances of the case, as developed in evidence,     were short and conclusive against the prisoner, so far as they tended to show that the death of the deceased had been caused by his hand, and they also presented another of those unfor- tunate cases where passion unrestrained commits crimes as black as the most predetermined malignity or the darkest re- venge. It might also furnish a lesson-not the first-to those who are too fond of practical jokes, or horseplay, without calculating upon the consequences. The unfortu-   nate prisoner was a farmer's labourer, and, at the date of this   homicide, was...
