Hobart Town. FRIDAY, MAY 27, 1825. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 27 May 1825

FRIDAY, MAY 27, 1825.     It is with feelings of the most sincere satis-   faction we announce to our Patron-the PUB- LIC that the long pending negociations, rela- tive to the establishment of a rival Journal, are now brought to a close. A Newspaper, threat ened to be "the ONLY Official Vehicle of public information" is inthe hands of the accoucheur, and will shortly be brought forth. We sin- cerely congratulate the numerous parties con- cernfed on the happy event! At present we shall   make but one remark, - that our newly-born Brother shall be treated by us with all the courteous delicaey which the tender days of bis infancy require from our generosity. That, what cannot he repaired ought not to   be regretted, was the observation of a man not more distinguished for profound scientific acquisitions, splendid natural endowments, and exemplary habitual excellence, than for the judicious esteem in which be, through life, had the hon...

The Emigrant. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 3 June 1825

Oïje (emigrant* " Nos Palruv fines et dulcía lingvimus arva Nos Patriam fugimus." Farewell ! Farewell ! most dear Britannia's strand, Rough though thou be, yet still my native land ! Exil'd from thee, I seek a foreign shore, Friends, Kindled, Country lo behold no more. By hard oppression urged, my helpless age That should ere now have left life's bustling stage, Is forced the ocean's boisterous breast to brave In a far foreign land to seek my grave ! G. A French writer informs us that in Ceylon, at the present day, to improve the innate courage of their children, parents place them on the back of a tame eagle in the pre- sence of a multitude assembled on the occa- sion, the bird mounts with the child into the air; if the latter betrays any fear he is sa- crificed, as incapable of supporting the dan- gers to which this life is exposed. «wurai'nani.nii-iiiiiiwiw From the Edinburgh Journal we copy the following : Joint Stock Companies continue most com- pletely the rage of the day ; au...

Hence arises in Some measure the numerous depredations on stock-holders in the interior. The Public will make their comments upon this plain statement of facts. A COUNTRY PROPRIETOR. -T-WÍO0-W

Memoirs of Lord Byron. (Concluded.) [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 3 June 1825

£l%tmoiv$ of Uorïr Myron. (Concluded.) Count Gamba's, the Countess Guiccioli's father, passed several hours in her society, returned to his palace, and either read or wrote till two or three o'clock in the morn- ing ; occasionally drinking spirits diluted with water as a medicine, from a dread of a nephretic complaint, to which he was, or fancied himself, subject-such was his life at Pisa. " The Countess Guiccioli is 23 years of age, though she appears no more than 17 ot l8. Unlike most of the Italia« women, her complexion is delicately fair. Her eyes, large, dark, and languishing, are shaded by the longest eyelashes in the world; and her hair, which is ungathered on her head, plays over her falling shoulders in a profusion of natural ringlets of the darkest auburn. Her figure is, perhaps, too much ebonpoint for her height, but her bust is perfect ; her fea- tures want little of possessing a Grecian J regularity of outline ; and she has the most beautiful mouth and teeth imaginable....

Stanzas to a Daughter. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 3 June 1825

Would that I Were, as thou art, blest, With unpolluted pleasure ! Would that I were, like thee, caress'd, A parent's darling treasure ! Bat sorrow's tempest smote my stem While infant charms wef e blushing ; Despair put on his diadem, And chill'd my joy's-tide rushing { No matter,-thou dost call ine SIRE, And, if to list be sadness, Ï would not quench parental fire Though mcm'ry lost, were gladness ! Sleep on, my beauteous MARY sleep; There's sanctity in slumber : But he thou fov'st, with tears, must steep His couch,-devoid of number! if. O'N. U. R* )

To the EDITOR. SIR,-On more than one occasion you have nobly adorned your much-respected Journal with appeals in behalf of Insolvent Prisoners for Debt. I therefore hope you will allow me, as forming one of theirunhappy number, to ask why, exeept for the ^unhallowed era* tification ol' malignant feelings, are the hor- rors and degenerating influences of confine- ment applied, to human beings, whose onjy crime has been pecuniary destitution ; and who while in Gaol are precluded from mak- ing their desired efforts to earn what might liquidate their Creditors' demands ? That fraud either contemplated or effected deserves degradation and captivity, must be allowed. But that honest indigence should equally encounter them is neither politic or equitable.-I am. Mr, Editor, your respectful servant, the Fattier of, a Family inhumed for £11 4s. 9d. A. Launceston Gaol.

However, as far as my information extends, 1 beg to present you with an account of the balance due to Mr. Johnson at the period a *c hubscriber" put his queries, and which, I am sorry' to say, still remains the same, not- withstanding the repeated applications that have been made by Mr. J.-Trusting that some one acquainted with any of the other questions will give the Public the benefit of his knowledge,-I remain your ...

To the EDITOR. SIR,-Every Sunday night St. David's Church is richly illuminated with large wax candles, which are never more than half burnt when Divine Service terminates. The relics do not however appear a second time! I therefore beg to know whether they consti- tute a clerical perquisite, and are consumed in the Clergyman's dwelling-house ? or whe- ther they are used by any other person ? and if so, bywfhom? Why, Mr. Editor, I am anxious on this point is, that being a housekeeper, and con- tributing my ¿hare towards the maintenance of Church and State, 1 feel myself entitled to know what such public stores aTe applied to, as are not consumed in the Public Service. 1 am, Sir, yours, &c.

1/1/1/ uuu To the EDITOR. SIR,-The apprehension of a famine being ! in everybody's mouth, I take the liberty of pointing out, through the medium of' your Paper, the necessity of all persons using barley mixed with flour in making bread. In many parts of England barley-bread is eaten daily by thousands of respectable and honest families, and many farmers never allow any other bread to be used by their servants. Mr. COBBETT, in his Cottage Economy, re- commends barley-bread very strongly. On the article bread, he states at paragraph 82, " The finest flour is by no means the most wholesome ; and at any rate, there is more nu» tricious matter in a pound of household bread than in a pound of baker's bread. Besides this rye and barley, especially when mixed with wheat* make very good bread. Few people upon the face of the earth live better than the Long Islanders. Yet, nine families out of ten, seldom eat wheáten bread. Half wheat, a quarter rye, and a quarter barley ; nay, one-third of e...

To the Editor. SIR,--The small portion of your Corres- pondent, Integritas last letter, which re- quired any sort of notice, has I conceive been fully answered by anticipation, and I should not further refer to it, but to repro- bate that levelling spirit which is so appa- rent. The Wharfinger of Hobart Town holds an office of some importance and consider- able responsibility ; and the person sustain- ing it ought not to be compared to a " cook wench ;" he may next be put on a par with a " washerwoman !" What will Mr. James H- say to this ? I know he is a man of spirit, and would very possibly be GUN- NING them, rather than that the " beautiful maid," who it is said he is permitted to be tender with, should be in any way mor- tified !   Allow me to take leave of you for the pre- sent, by transcribing a few lines from Junius, which caught my eye the other evening ; to them I shall add but as little as possible : " The ruin or prosperity of a state depends so much on the ...

-000-. To the EDITOR. SIR,-A short time since two reports of the expenditure of the Colonial Revenue were published in distinct Supplements to your Gazette, in each of which the travelling ex- pences of the Reverend Superintendent of Schools, incurred in the performance of the avocations of that department, were charged on a most liberal scale, and assuredly, « if honestly caused," could not be too large for so essentially serviceable a purpose. I beg to call the attention of the Public, your "PATRON," to the ^following statement of these extraordinary and as supposed incurred expences, and leave the deduction to their inferrible discrimination. In the April Report 1824, the sum of £19 4s. is charged as travelling expences for the Superintendent of Schools ; and in the subsequent June (a term of two mouths), the sum of £22 9s. and Gd. is attached to the same account, and in another report all in 1824, the further sum of ¿Ê16 19s., making in aggregate of £5812s. 6d. fortravellhig exp...

Hobart Town. FRIDAY, JUNE 3, 1825. [Newspaper Article] — Hobart Town Gazette and Van Diemen’s Land Advertiser — 3 June 1825

FRIDAY, JUNE 3, 1825. Much discussion of a rather intemperate na- ture has recently occurred in reference to our new Magistrates ; and feeling on the subject as we do, wilh<5onsiderable warmth, afewremarks appear to be extorted from us. That a worship- ful appointment can neither be graced by vul- garity, nor well sustained by guilt, is an apho- rism so self-evidenl as to render auxiliary argu- ments supeiflüous. No less certain is the fact, that aman who does not understand the laws of his country, is unfit as a Magistrate to admi- nister them. The Bench should therefore be composed of sterling respectability, not alone as relates to opulence, but especially with regard lo education, good sense, and rectitude ! AH its Members ought to know and appreciate by experience the peculiar interests of their se- veral districts! Even their temper should be weighed in the scale of their qualifications, and if found deficient, considered to denote their incompetence ! Added to all ...
